Sarasota Developer, Sherell Johnson never understood the pull that the Western North Carolina Mountains have on Floridians until his son, Tom, moved to Waynesville and built a log home for himself. Tom also developed a small 26-acre mountainside tract into 19 home sites and gained a little insight and experience in mountain road building.
As Sherell told friends and acquaintances of Tom’s latest adventure, he kept hearing the same refrain, “Your son., Tom, is living my dream. I’ve always wanted a home in the mountains.”
Sensing the possibility of a unique but economically sound venture, Sherell and Tom acquired 50 acres on a beautiful mountainside to try an unusual concept. An entire community of log homes.
The idea clicked, and the Smoky Mountain Retreat – now a series of log Home Communities – was born. Today there are 3 Smoky Mountain Retreats covering over 1,400 acres and sales have boomed.
