The familiar tepees mark the entrance to the popular Motorcycle Ranch in Pikeville

CHATTANOOGA, TN., – Crye-Leike, REALTORS is proud to announce that Broker Maggie Armstrong has listed for sale the popular Motorcycle Ranch along Highway 127 in Pikeville Tennessee, one hour north of Chattanooga.  The property lists for $399,000 and features tepees, guest rooms, full service kitchen & dining, outdoor pavilion, parking and RV hookups on five acres.

According to Armstrong, since purchasing the property three years ago, owners Carl and Barbara Fowler built their ranch from the ground-up.  She says the couple created an oasis for motorcycle riders and enthusiasts traveling through the East Tennessee Region looking for clean and convenient accommodations.

“The Fowlers planned on living here throughout their retirement,” said Armstrong.  “Because of Florida’s downturn in real estate they’re rethinking their plans and decided to put their dream on the market.”

Armstrong says the property is most recognized by the grouping of tepees at the front entrance along Highway 127 in Pikeville.

“The property has spectacular views of the nearby ridges and plenty of open space,” said Armstrong.  “Fall Creek Falls State Park, shopping and entertainment are just minutes away.”

According to Armstrong, Carl Fowler is a second-generation Native American and that’s the reason for the tepee theme.  She says it’s immaculate with it’s seven guest rooms, rocking chair porch, furnished restaurant, an outdoor pavilion that’s perfect for dancing and karaoke and of course the tepees.

“Carl Fowler is the sweetest an understanding baby boomer who wants this place to be a clean, safe getaway for anyone enjoying the beautiful mountains and valleys of Middle Tennessee,” said Armstrong.  “Even at his busiest, he never turns anyone away and if he doesn’t have a tepee available he’ll furnish a sleeping bag or tent.”
