southern cooking and hospitality
Keeping in the tradition of Dr. John and Blanche Ogle, Five Oaks Farm Kitchen welcomes friends and neighbors looking for Southern cooking and hospitality. Here we treat you like family and invite you back when you take a notion.
Dr. John and Blanche Ogle legacy and lore date back to String Town in the 1920s. When Sevier County was known as an agriculture community, before the dedication of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, hospitality was in the Ogle's DNA.
While Dr. John spent his days traveling on horseback attending to his patients, Blanche filled her days caring for their children on the farm. Together they raised four children in their farmhouse which frequently opened its doors to visiting friends and family.
Their hospitality was known throughout the county and their home was filled with laughter, love and the pleasant aromas of down-home cooking.
For some reason we have only done breakfast here, but, boy, was it good!
The French toast, omelets and farmhouse tenant favorite for all you meal lovers they are all great.

Where Is Sevierville TN?
People that come visit the area have never heard of Sevierville, let alone pronounce it. No worries, the truth is many who visit don't even realize they are in Sevierville! This small town is next to Pigeon Forge, often getting overshadowed by all the popular attractions in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. However, Sevierville has just as many exciting things to do and explore. Sevierville is only about an 8-minute drive from Pigeon Forge, and 14 miles from Gatlinburg. It's not hard to find! If you hear your cabin or property is in Sevierville and think "I wanted Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg" don't worry, you are in the right place.
1. Sevierville Was Named After Governor John Sevier
Sevierville and Sevier County both take their name from John Sevier, the first governor of Tennessee. A native of Virginia, Sevier first came to prominence during the Revolutionary War, when he led the Overmountain Men to victory in the Battle of Kings Mountain. After serving as brigadier general of the Southwest Territory, John Sevier was elected governor of the newly formed state of Tennessee, a position he held for six terms. Sevier is also famous for his bitter rivalry with Andrew Jackson, a feud that nearly culminated in a duel in 1803!
2. Dolly Parton Is Sevierville's Favorite Daughter
Dolly Parton is undeniably Sevierville's most famous resident. Born in 1946, the fourth of twelve children, Dolly was raised in a two-room cabin in Locust Ridge. As a child, Parton performed on local radio and TV shows in nearby Knoxville. After graduating from high school, Dolly moved to Nashville where she launched an incredible career in country music that has spanned five decades. Despite her success, Parton never forgot where she came from and has helped make her hometown the popular vacation destination it is today. As a way of saying thank you, the city of Sevierville erected a statue in Dolly's honor in front of the Sevier County Courthouse in 1987.
3. Sevierville Was Once Part Of "The Lost State Of Franklin"
Before Tennessee existed, Sevier County briefly formed part of "The Lost State of Franklin." Named after Benjamin Franklin, this territory in modern-day Northeast Tennessee petitioned Congress to become America's 14th state in 1785. When their bid for statehood was rejected, Franklin thumbed its nose at the federal government and essentially became an autonomous nation with its own constitution and court system.
John Sevier served as Franklin's governor, where he earned an annual salary of 1,000 deer skins, as the state had no paper or coin currency. The experiment in self-rule ended in 1788 after North Carolina re-assumed control of the region. The new state of Tennessee was admitted to the Union in 1796.
4. The Lodge At Five Oaks Has Deep Roots In Sevierville
The Lodge at Five Oaks has its origins in 1925 when Dr. John W. Ogle and his wife Blanche purchased around 128 acres in Sevierville. They named their farm "Five Oaks" after the five small oak trees that John planted in the front yard. Dr. Ogle traveled to most of his patients on horseback, so he wanted a home that was near the center of Sevier County. The Ogles' estate was famous for its beautiful farm house, Tennessee Walking Horses, and welcoming atmosphere.
5. Sevierville Supported The Union During The Civil War
The Civil War was the most trying time in the history of Sevierville TN. Although Tennessee had joined the Confederacy in 1861, the Smoky Mountain area was a bastion of abolitionist and pro-Union sentiment. In fact, Sevierville was home to a relatively large community of free African Americans. During the war, the residents of Sevierville suffered from frequent looting, harassment, and confiscation of property at the hands of both Union and Confederate troops.
new experience for visitors in 2021!
What started as a year-round tubing destination has turned into an exciting adventure park! Rowdy Bear Ridge in Pigeon Forge is offering a new experience for visitors to enjoy in 2021: the CoasterKart.
This brand-new attraction is an interactive slide that is fun for the whole family. Along the ride, you'll be in control of your own speed. But, it's different from a traditional alpine coaster. The CoasterKart is a powered ride system with electrical bars installed in the track to power the karts. The 2 passenger vehicles allow friends and family members to ride side-by-side, and the speed is controlled by a foot brake instead of a hand brake.
An official opening date for the CoasterKart at Rowdy Bear Ridge has yet to be announced. Until then, you can enjoy the following coasters:
