Living Room
Between hiking trails to waterfalls, shopping in the crafts community, or horseback riding in the Smokies, retreat to the living room at your log cabin in Gatlinburg. Tall picture windows frame the flowing trees outside and let in plenty of natural light during the day. A stacked stone, gas fireplace makes the space cozier in winter months. And for added entertainment, there’s a TV to enjoy from the plump sofas. Place your coffee and treats on the coffee table and curl up for a friendly chat with your partner or simply soak in the tree-studded scenery in peaceful quiet.

When you’re craving a bite to eat or something refreshing to drink, head to the full kitchen at your Great Smoky Mountain hideaway that’s equipped with everything you need to prepare and serve meals, snacks, and beverages on your Gatlinburg vacation.

Appliances include a large double-door refrigerator, an electric range, a microwave, a toaster, a blender, and both standard drip and single-cup coffeemakers! You’ll also have cookware, cutlery, dishes, glasses, mugs, a serving cart, and a double sink with a window overlooking the towering trees.

With scenic wooded views and 2 covered decks, you’ll be whistling your way to a world of relaxation in no time.

Slip into the hot tub and turn on the massaging water jets for a while or crack open that book you’ve been meaning to read while swaying in a rocker. Enjoy coffee, tea, or lemonade sips at the outdoor table while your next meal cooks on the gas grill. And enjoy the fresh mountain air every day!
