You have access to the community pool (available Memorial Day through Labor Day), tennis courts and basketball goal (equipment may be available for your use on the clubhouse porch) by the clubhouse at no charge and easy access to a year round creek from the Community Center. Come stay in "Emerald Ridge" for a wonderful Smoky Mountain Vacation for your dream getaway!

“Very Happy!”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2016

We had a wonderful stay at Emerald Ridge! Overall the cabin was very well-stocked with supplies. It was very clean with comfortable furniture. Well-maintained and lit. The only thing I would change is adding some equipment in the kitchen. Serving pieces and storage dishes would have been helpful since our choice to stay in a cabin was so that we could cook at home. Loved the grill and crock pot. Once we found the cabin (got a little lost during the first drive in), We were very happy that the pictures were a true reflection of the cabin. Cathy was very easy to work with.

We stayed the week of July 4th, and loved the cabin. Everything was clean and had everything we needed.

The condo was prettier than the pictures with strong, quality furniture and beds. It was very quiet and the view from the balcony was beautiful. There was plenty of seating for our guests as well. The kitchen could use a large fryingpan for larger groups. Even though the washer and dryer both did not work a bag of fresh linen was brought even during a storm and was appreciated. All in all we had a wonderful time.

Owner's reply: I do not know where this guest stayed but there is no balcony with a view and the washer/dryer components work well and at the same time. They have never be "down" nor have we delivered linens to this cabin for guests. I am glad they had a wonderful time.

The cabin was beautiful and we had a good time. The only thing I didn't like about the cabin was the couch. The couch was different than what was pictured, which was fine, but it was very uncomfortable. Besides that we had a really good time.

“Anniversary stay”

Reviewed 19 May 2015

22 yr anniversary we could ask for anything more great location close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We even had a vistor a BIG Black Bear that wanted to help me pack up when we're leaving. Thank you for letting us stay in your home. Jeff,Sandy and our pups Talon and Bella.

Owner's reply: This has been a big year for black bears in Shagbark. So glad you had a wonderful stay!!!

“a quiet oasis”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2015

This is just such a charming place. It really had everything I was looking for. It was spotless and the owner had thought of everything. The hot tub was a dream and my girlfriends and i had an epic air hockey tournament. We decided we wanted to this annually. That is how much this cabin won us over. It is very conveniently located near all the attractions in Pigeon forge. I highly recommend this cabin.

Owner's reply: I am so glad you had a wonderful stay! I look forward to you coming again.

“Family Vacation”

The cabin was really nice! The Master bedroom has the most comfortablest King size bed ever! I slept like a baby! The only drawback was that the road is a little steep and bumpy!

“Very good and restful stay.”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2011

We had a good stay. The cabin is very clean and comfortable. And is well furnished in all ways. And since we were there at Christmas time a Christmas tree was waiting for us. How thoughtful and a surprise. Cathi Qualls was helpful and gave immediate response to our questions. And made suggestions that were helpful to us. The cabin which is really a home I would like to have is beautiful. The furnishings were comfortable and clean. When we stay away from home cleanliness is most important and Mountain Dreams was clean. However, I am glad we were there before a snow storm. I don't think we could have driven up the drive way in the snow.

“Amazing Grace”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2011

We stayed at the Amazing Grace not the Mountain Dreams. Our stay at the Amazing Grace was WONDERFUL. This is the first time to stay in a cabin but it will not be the last. We had a great time!!! It was very clean and had everything we needed. The only thing I could think of that would inprove it would be a ice maker. Thank So Much.

“Mountain Dreams”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2011
