We are three minutes from our clubhouse, swimming pool and tennis court. This cabin has WIRELESS HIGH-SPEED INTERNET, 2 gas fireplaces, 2 KING bedrooms each with TV & DVD and separate receivers, 1 QUEEN bedroom with private bath, and updated bathrooms. All linens are provided and the kitchen is fully equipped for cooking family meals. The loft has a POOL TABLE, which has views of the flat-screen TV in the living room and the pond. A good selection of board games; Checkers, Chess, Apples to Apples, and Backgammon, are for those rainy days or fun nights. We have a 40 DVD movie collection when our guests want to just hang out at Catch & Release. We added a whole house Generac Generator for those storms that take down trees. You will always have power! The dramatic 30’ vaulted rock fireplace wall has a 42' FLAT SCREEN TV with SURROUND SOUND and DVD. The new THEATER/FAMILY/GAME room has a 48” FLAT SCREEN TV and DVD, bamboo hardwood floors, Foosball table, Checker table, glass walls looking into the fishing pond and the backyard creek, and all leather furniture. The 5 ton zoned Air Conditioning and Heating system is energy efficient and meets government specifications for GREEN buildings. Our bathroom products are from Concept Amenities, an Australian soap company whose soaps are in 5-star European hotels. The bath gel, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are biodegradable and environmentally sensitive. We love our environment and know that you do too. This is why you vacation in the Smoky Mountains. The backyard creek runs under the house into a large FISHING POND in the front yard, which has Goldfish, Catfish, and Brim. You can fish from the front deck in the stocked pond. Please bring your fishing poles. We request that you CATCH & RELEASE ONLY. The pond fountain automatically turns on to enjoy your morning coffee and turns off in the evening. It is off in the winter months. The CREEKSIDE HOT TUB is in the moss-covered backyard in an enclosed porch. The Hot Tub is emptied and refilled prior to each guest arrival in accordance with the Tennessee Department of Health Regulations. This is the most peaceful vacation home you will ever visit. It is tucked amongst the trees where the occasional bear drifts by to take a bath in the pond with her cubs. Catch has bamboo floors, slate countertops, appliances, area carpets, washer-dryer, and amazing landscaping in the front yard with a dry creek bed in stone, and large boulders. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR FAMILIES. KIDS LOVE IT!!! WE ARE 10 MINUTES FROM THE CENTER OF PIGEON FORGE, 15 MINUTES FROM DOLLYWOOD, AND 25 MINUTES FROM GATLINBURG!
