Location: Pigeon Forge, Tennessee
Area: Beside the Still Waters
As you pull into the drive of Close Beside Me, a secluded cabin tucked away in the forests of Pigeon Forge, a serene Smoky Mountain calm washes over, creating a relaxing start to your family vacation or getaway with friends. Step inside to find custom log work along with updated furniture and décor throughout the home. Exposed beams and hardwood floors add a touch of elegance while a stacked-stone fireplace and rocking chairs elevate that cabin charm.
With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus extra sleeping accommodations, up to 8 guests can comfortably stay at this woodsy abode located in the Beside the Still Waters community. Big screen TVs, a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor dining, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a bubbly hot tub create fun spaces to relax, dine, and unwind. Come one, come all for a tranquil stay in the Smokies at Close Beside Me!
With an open concept throughout the home plus high ceilings, Close Beside Me offers a spacious living room, featuring a plush sofa (doubles as a sleeper), 2 arm chairs, a gas fireplace, and a big screen TV. Plop piles of snacks on the coffee table, flip on the flatscreen, grab a pillow, and settle in for family night. During the day, enjoy wooded and treetop views through the large windows all around and up above. When evening sets, switch on the floor lamps, whip up a batch of coffee in the nearby kitchen, open your favorite book, and read for hours on end by a mood-setting fire.
Ah, a communal place in every home, the kitchen at Close Beside Me comes fully equipped with all the pots, pans, cutlery, dishware, mugs, and more you’ll need to prepare homemade meals at the cabin. Gather the gang for food fun, like cookie decorating, an eating contest, or midnight snack munching. Boasting plenty of counter space, black appliances, and a white porcelain sink, this kitchen not only functional but also stylish!
Make dining easy as pie with bar seating for 6 right off the kitchen counter. Cushioned seats keep you comfy while chatting and dining with family and friends. And if you need extra seating, the living room supplies plenty of nearby space, so everyone can stay connected at mealtimes.
Ready to hit the hay after exploring Pigeon Forge attractions all day? Head to one of 2 bedrooms — each with a big screen TV and ceiling fan — for cuddles with your sweetheart, followed by oh-so-sweet dreams. On the entry level, you’ll find a king-size bed while the second floor hosts a queen-size bed. There’s even a futon complete with a bedside lamp in the loft so additional guests can have their own space. And don’t forget about the sleeper sofa in the living room, which brings the maximum guest total to 8. Best of all, one of the 2 full bathrooms offers a jetted tub for bubbly spa baths before bed.
Head onto the deck for morning meals at the outdoor dining tables, gentle sways with a cup of tea in the rocking chairs, and soothing soaks in the steamy hot tub! Outdoors, you’ll also find a charcoal grill, perfect for barbecue parties and steak dinners. The total seclusion of Close Beside Me means private wooded views (or winter mountain views) and quiet peace are yours! And when you’re ready for a bit more excitement, easily venture to town from the parking area for 2.
