Shady Brook #544

The Reagan family, one of Gatlinburg's most historic families, began building cabins around 1925. At the time, Otha Reagan worked stripping tanning bark in the Sugarlands area of what is now the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and his wife, Emma, was a weaver at Arrowmont. In 1923, Otha and Emma had saved enough money, $500 to be exact to purchase five acres of land on the Roaring Fork Creek where Brookside Resort is today. Just a few years later they began building small cabins and chicken coops on the property to rent to men who were in the area building the road from Newfound Gap to Clingmans Dome. These cabins were built with timbers from the Roaring Fork School House and Church, and some were built from log homes moved straight out of the National Park. Many of the Reagan family's ancestors were even born in these cabins!

In 1971, Gatlinburg Southern Building Code required the remodel of nearly all the buildings in the area to a Bavarian type of exterior, so the Reagan cabins were updated to conform. Not too long after that in 1980, all of the original cabins and chicken houses were moved to their present location in picturesque Emerts Cove by a local river hangout called the Flint Rock Swimming Hole. To make a few larger cabins to accommodate larger families, two of the original cabins were placed on each side of a concrete slab to form a bedroom and a bathroom, and the middle was built to form a living area. Don't worry, though, the cabins haven't lost any of their history rumor has it that old chicken feed bags from the cabins earliest years have been found in their attics! Today's owners are proud to bring a little piece of their family's Gatlinburg history to your Gatlinburg vacation!

This particular cabin is located on the Little Pigeon River. The cabin features one studio style bedroom with a king-size bed and full kitchen and dining area and one private bathroom. From Shady Brook you are within walking distance of the Greenbrier entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, just a few miles from Gatlinburg city limits, and minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg. 3 miles from Rocky Top Sports World.

    A very clean cabin and grounds. So quiet at night with the creek running and fire glowing. Window seals and jambs should be addressed but overall it’s our new get away chalet. My wife loves this place!

    This is an amazing little place to stay. Close to Gatlinburg, pigeon forge and Sevierville. But still a little secluded. River right behind cabin. Very clean and spacious on the inside. Loved every minute of our stay.
