The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe and Grill
Being a rather large fellow with a great appetite requires that I regularly stop my Gatlinburg real estate work for a food break - At least that's my story and I'm sticking with it. Fortunately, although I have travelled fairly extensively, we have some of the very best restaurants that I know right here in Sevier County. I had the opportunity to enjoy one of our short list favorites last week for lunch - The Old Mill Pottery House Cafe and Grill in Pigeon Forge. Lots of folks are familiar with the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge but not as many have tried the Pottery House Cafe across the street and have therefore missed a real treat.
I love the statement on their menu:
If you go somewhere else to eat, ask them if they bake their own bread.
If they say yes, ask them if they grind their own grains.
If they say yes, ask them if they make their own plates.
They really do make their own grain across the road at the original Old Mill and yes, they really do make their own pottery next door. Excellent food and if the weather allows, make sure to ask to sit outside where they have a very nice garden area accented by a small waterfall. For more information, take a look at their excellent website. This is truly one of our favorite spots - Enjoy!!

Last month, I expressed some concern that our 2012 winning streak for Smoky Mountain residential real estate sales was going to be broken. Unlike the first 8 months of the 2012, September's results did NOT exceed those of September 2011. I also reminded readers that one month does not a trend make and that we would need to wait a couple of months to get a clearer indication of where our Gatlinburg area real estate market was headed. That caution turns out to be quite well thought because the latest residential sales results for our Gatlinburg area real estate market seem to be much better, with the early results already being better than most recent year's October results. Here is my preliminary table showing the good news:
Gatlinburg area sales rocketed past January 2016's tally and we haven't even got all of the sales reported yet. Because this is only the preliminary total, we could rocket past 2006's red-hot all time record of 210 sales. Here is the initial report of January 2017's blistering sales pace for Smoky Mountain residential real estate sales:
Because of some MLS data errors, January's average sales price is not shown on the report above, but hopefully will be soon...
