The Pioneer Trading Post


"It really does feel like you have stepped back in time, but yet every modern amenity is available."

Vacation Cabin Rental on Douglas Lake

The log cabin rental offers 4 beautifully decorated bedrooms, each with its' own special charm and appeal. All beds have new quality mattresses with 100% cotton sheets, feather pillows and authentic hand stitched quilts for the feel you only get at Granny's house. The log cabin has 3 Queen beds, 3 Twins and 1 Full size bed on the sleeping porch.

The Great Room

Pull up a seat next to the fireplace and study the hand-carved totem pole made by Chief Blue Cloud of the Cherokee Nation as a gift to Grandaddy in the early 1920's. The totem pole originally stood outside the family store known as The Pioneer Trading Post in Gatlinburg, TN, the cabin's name sake. The Pioneer was one of the very first stores in Gatlinburg selling the handy crafts of 69 Appalachian families.


The kitchen is a chef's dream with a 6 burner gas stove, a full range of modern cookware, stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. The log cabin also boasts an outdoor kitchen overlooking the lake.
