Quietly tucked among the trees in Cosby, Tennessee, After Creek Delight is all about rest, relaxation, romance, and great times in the Great Smoky Mountains. As the name suggests, this rustic log cabin is set right on a creek, giving you those peaceful water sounds as you unwind. It features 1 bedroom with a queen-size bed, a loft with 2 twin beds, 2 full bathrooms, and space to sleep up to 4 guests.
First, pull up in the flat, gravel driveway for easy arrivals. This semi-private cabin only has 1 neighboring cabin down the street, so you can really enjoy your own space and quiet here. You’re greeted by a charming cabin with a wraparound porch and plenty of outdoor space to throw a football, stretch your legs, or play with your pup at this pet-friendly cabin! For more fun indoors, you’ll have a foosball table, too!
When it’s mealtime, fire up the picnic-area-style charcoal grill or whip up something in the full kitchen in the cabin. You can cozy up in the living room that features a sofa, rocking chairs, a coffee table large enough for a game of cards, and a 42-inch flatscreen TV while you stay warm by the gas fireplace. It also has a DVD player, so bring along your favorite movies for cozy nights inside. Then head to the bedroom to enjoy a peaceful night in the queen-size bed or go to the deck for a soak in the outdoor hot tub before calling it a night. The cabin also features a washer and dryer, which are convenient during longer stays or after nature hikes. Welcome to your After Creek Delight!
Start by leaving your bags at the door and plopping on the comfy sofa for a snooze while the rest of the fam explores the cabin, featuring hardwood floors, rustic design, high ceilings, exposed beams, and Smoky Mountain charm. When cool evenings set, switch on the gas fireplace with stone accents, open a good book, and unwind in a rocking chair for an enjoyable read. Looking for a little entertainment? Host movie nights with the DVD player and 42-inch flatscreen TV with buttery popcorn and fizzy drinks on the coffee table.
Ready to chow down? Head to the nearby kitchen that’s fully equipped with all the pots and pans, dinnerware, cookware, and appliances you’ll need for homemade feasts, delectable desserts, and midnight cravings. Rinse veggies in the white double farm sink while overlooking woodsy views through the window, reheat restaurant leftovers in the microwave, bake fresh biscuits in the oven, fix hearty stews on the stove, and store soda and beer in the fridge. There’s plenty of space here, so sous chefs are welcome!
The dining area at After Creek Delight is just off the kitchen with a wooden table for 4. Lay out a mouthwatering spread down the center and kick off every meal by sharing highlights of the day’s fun in town. After dinner, grab a mug from the hutch and whip up a fresh batch of joe with the kitchen’s coffeemaker to pair with the night’s dessert of choice. Later, clear the space for your favorite board games brought from home!
After playing, shopping, and dining all day, you’ll appreciate a cozy place to rest for the night in the bedroom’s queen-size bed or loft’s 2 twin beds. Each space has an en-suite bathroom, which makes getting ready for bed or ready to head to town easy. What’s more, there’s another flatscreen TV and even a foosball table in the bedroom for nightly entertainment plus epic game battles with friends and family!
Coasting along the flat, paved (sometimes narrow and slightly curvy) roads, turn onto the flat, gravel driveway at After Creek Delight with parking for 6-7 vehicles and room for a trailer. As you pull closer, you’ll notice a porch swing and seating on the wraparound deck. Feel free to take a breather from your travels before heading inside or stretch your legs by heading over to the tranquil flowing creek nearby. It’s vacation time!
With peaceful wooded views all around, experience the Smoky Mountain quiet you’ve been seeking. Plus, this cabin is semi-private with only 1 cabin just down the street (only partially visible in winter months when the trees are bare). For tasty cookouts, head down only 7 steps from the cabin deck to the charcoal, picnic-style grill, and for soothing soaks, head around the deck to the bubbly hot tub!
That’s not all! After Creek Delight has a washer and dryer set so you can keep clothes and towels clean throughout your stay, meaning you won’t need to overpack. While all the cabin amenities are great, perhaps the best part about this rustic cabin is that it’s pet friendly. Yep, your pet doesn’t have to stay with a sitter or be left behind this trip — he deserves a Smoky Mountain vacay, too!
*Note: this property does not have internet.
