Mary’s Cottage

Mary’s Cottage is a CONDO with a WONDERFUL VIEW of the SMOKY MOUNTAIN foothill ridges. There is a PRIVATE HOT TUB on a lower level accessible by an outside staircase. 60+ ARCADE GAME CONSOLE for 1 or 2 players. The QUEEN and KING bedroom suites have flat-screen TVs with independent receivers 2 with DVD players. The GREAT room has a gas log fireplace with easy-on switches and a new flat-screen TV with BLU-RAY-DVD player and independent receiver with a good variety of programming including 2 movie channels.

The large deck is easy to access through the French doors that allow mountain viewing from the comfort of the sofa or recliner. There is a large private deck with table/chairs and a view of a large Koi Pond on the lower level – a summer delight with many flowers.

As you enter the secluded driveway with covered parking for 1 car – additional parking available off road above, you will have a peaceful setting for a relaxing vacation.

This cottage is in a gated 1300 acre animal sanctuary community close to the Pigeon Forge city limits. Shagbark only has about 246 cabins scattered throughout the wooded hills and year round creek that will make you think you are in the Smoky Mountain National Park. Wild turkeys, raccoons and bears wander throughout the forests. Please be careful and do NOT feed the animals.

The drive to Shagbark is almost the same elevation as Pigeon Forge. You will enter along Clear Fork Creek off Waldens Creek off Wears Valley Road at the Pigeon Forge city limits. Once you leave the Clear Fork Creek area the last part of the road does become narrow and steeper but Mary’s Cottage is well worth the trip. I drive it easily with a Honda Odyssey. Welcome to the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and an amazing view!

There is a main floor QUEEN bedroom with a bath with Shower, a Flat screen TV and a separate receiver. Grab bars for your safety in the bathroom and bedroom. King bedroom suite on the opposite side of the great room off the kitchen with Arcade game table, large flat screen TV with DVD plyer, sofa, full bath with large shower.
