Kodak Real Estate
Not many folks from outside the Smokies have heard of the unincorporated community of Kodak. But those who know about it understand why this section of northern Sevier County has become a popular place for area residents to build and buy homes. For starters, it offers beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains range, which stands tall about 25 miles away as the crow flies. But the nearby rolling hills and pasturelands are gorgeous in their own right and are just the ticket for residents in search of a more idyllic setting for their homestead.
Kodak is also strategically located. Depending on traffic, it’s only a 20-minute drive from Pigeon Forge and a half-hour from Gatlinburg, but it’s also just 20 to 25 minutes from Knoxville via Interstate 40. That makes it an ideal spot for residents who want to separate themselves from most of the heaviest tourist traffic but who also want to be able to easily access either the Smokies or the more urban Knoxville in short order. The community is also close to Douglas Lake, a TVA reservoir that offers numerous seasonal opportunities for boating, fishing, camping and more.
Although the City of Sevierville annexed the strip of land on either side of Tenn. Hwy. 66 (which connects I-40 and Sevierville) years ago, much of the land adjacent to the Interstate is actually considered Kodak. Nearby points of interest include Smokies Park (home of the Tennessee Smokies baseball team), Bass Pro Shops and several flea markets.
