About George Tanley

George & I own and operate Chestnut Hill Ranch Bed & Breakfast & Farm Weddings about 1 hour west of Nashville TN. We visited friends in the Great Smoky Mountains and, immediately fell in love with the variety of activities and the unmatched beauty of this mountain setting. I come from the Rocky Mountains of Jasper Alberta and yet, when I came to the Smoky Mountains, they captured my heart. We purchased a small cabin Hideaway 290414 on vrbo and when Goldilocks came on the market , and was right next door, to it, this beautiful log home was our dream that became a reality in May of 2011.

We love the Smoky Mts, visit often and are so very happy to provide this stunning log home for you and your family to enjoy.. Make memories! We have!

George Tanley purchased this lodge in 2011

Why George Tanley chose Sevierville

Goldilocks Lodge is at one end of a huge central round about with the Honeymoon Hideaway- a 2 bedroom, 2 bath mountain cabin with a large level lot as its neighbor. The Goldilocks Lodge can be combined with the Honeymoon Hideaway VRBO #290414 -in easy walking distance to accommodate up to 20. We found Goldilocks to have all the beauty of a rich log 3 level home with outstanding comfort, decor & amenities....

What makes this lodge unique

Goldilocks front porch is at the top of Sky Harbor and we love to sit in the early morning, have coffee and smell the pine flavor of the woods and watch the wild turkeys. Its the perfect start & end to our days in the Great Smoky Mountains. A soak in the Hot tub takes away the sore muscles and prepares us for another beautiful day.....

Great stay in the Smokies!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back home after a five day stay in the Goldilocks lodge. There were nine of us in total, two families; four adults with five teen and pre-teen kids (and don't forget the three dogs!). Overall, we give the cabin 18 big thumbs up, as we had a great stay.

The layout was such that all four adults had private space and the four boys had the run of the basement with the pool table. It worked out very well for us.

The big deck was great in the evenings, as we had a fire in the firepit and some of us climbed into the hot tub. It was very spacious and could have accommodated quite a few more folks outside.

The location was good, but it does require a bit of a drive up and down some windy mountain roads. It's a pretty straight shot, so hard to get lost, but if you're a nervous driver, it might take you longer than it should. You're in the mountains, so a mountainous drive should be expected. The roads are in fine condition, so shouldn't be an issue in any vehicle in normal conditions. It took us about 15 minutes to get from the driveway into the heart of Pigeon Forge, so not bad at all.

We had no issues during our stay, but George, the owner, called after our arrival to make sure everything was in order, and he called again the day we departed to wish us safe travels. I appreciated the fine hospitality and am confident that had any issues arisen during our stay they would have been taken care of promptly.

I'd recommend staying here to anyone that asked and if I found myself in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate to book this place a second time.

It's a beautiful part of the country and we all had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming to stay at our lovely Goldilocks Log Lodge. You had quite a crew and we are so glad that everyone had room to stretch out enjoy all the Lodge and the Great Smoky Mountains have to offer. If I remember right, you were actually on the mountain roller coaster when we called! Evening campfires under the stars are a real family time, the hot tub soaks those weary bones and the great beds make for a fine nights rest. Thanks so much Erik and we look forward to you making more memories at Goldilocks! George and Cher

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Beautiful cottage! Very comfortable with a big deck and the fire pit outside is a very cool little extra. Outdoor hot tub was perfect- has a covered terrace so it is useable in any weather condition. Make sure to check out downtown Gatlinburg and do some FREE moonshine sampling at Ole Smokey Moonshine and also Sugarland. There is also an awesome horseback riding stable near by closer to Pigion Forge. We brought 2 dogs with us and they also enjoyed themselves- we took a couple long walks with them through the Tennessee cabin roads.

Great family weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to getaway for a weekend with the family. We were very pleased we could bring the dogs as well. We were with 5 adults and 4 kids and it worked perfectly. The cabin is fully stocked and we loved the hot tub and fire place in particular. We ate all our meals at home. The cabin is in a beautiful quiet area on a big lot, not far from Pigeon hole, which is a very touristy strip of entertainment. We only went down there once. The cabin was very clean and it was a pleasure dealing with Cher. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

Kindest regards, Cher & George.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay here. The property was magnificently maintained and attention was given to even small details - nice sheets on the beds, a well-stocked kitchen and more. The owner was very nice to work with and responded quickly to all of my inquiries. The location is very convenient to Pigeon Forge. We would definitely visit again.
