Choose to play all day? Convenience is the word when you stay at Close to Nature.

Choose to rest and get away from the craziness of life? Don’t forget your towel when you take advantage of the on-site pool and hot tub. Gather in this open floorplan to quietly play a hand of card or unwind in front of the gas fireplace as you get to watch that movie you have been wanting to see on your 55-inch flatscreen TV. Mealtime is always easy as you make a quick snack or plan a hearty meal in this well-stocked kitchen. At night, head to the bedrooms which feature 1 king-size bed and 2 full beds. Both bedrooms have their own TVs to allow an escape from the business of the day.

Whatever type of vacation you’re seeking, Close to Nature gives you the best of both worlds. The feel of the Smokies with the convenience of a downtown condo. Relax, have fun, and experience the best of the Smoky Mountains!

Living Room
Unwind in the open living room on one of two oversized leather couches as you read a book by lamplight or catch up with friends with the sunlight and scenery pouring in through the sliding door and the corner window. Cool off with the ceiling fan or cozy up with the warmth of the raging gas fireplace to find comfort any time of year. Just a sliding door and a couple of steps away and you are closer to nature enjoying the views on your larger covered balcony. Enjoy this space alone or with a few of your guests as you watch the sunrise in the morning or the sunset in the evening with a toasty cup of goodness!

Head to the nearby kitchen for a tasty snack or find everything you need to whip up a family meal that everyone will enjoy. You will find a full refrigerator to store groceries and leftovers and a microwave to heat up those leftovers or your favorite yummy snack before bed. Make cleanup easier with the dishwasher, and make cooking more fun while chatting with friends seated at the beautiful granite bar. The 4 stools at the bar can also provide a place to sit and sample goodies as well as a great place to let the kiddos eat together.

After a day full of fun and sun, you’ll be anxious to crawl into a comfy bed at night. If you plan to stay up talking with your girlfriends until you are delirious, the bedroom with the 2 full beds will be perfect accommodations. If you need a little more space to stretch out, the king-size bedroom is the better choice. It is made complete with its own private balcony and en-suite bathroom with stand-up shower.

Don’t worry, each bedroom comes with its own flatscreen TV for entertainment in bed. And if you’re looking for something extra to help you unwind, give the indoor jetted tub a try. The placement is just right to be able to watch a movie or show from the TV while you escape with bubbles and the tranquil scent from your candles! What a way to end a busy day, with a relaxing bath before bed.

Outdoor Spaces
Ride the elevator up to your vacation home to make packing and unpacking easier. This same elevator can transport you from your lodging place straight to the on-site pool. Lounge and soak up some rays, get a little golden tan, or jump on in to feel refreshed on those hot summer days. Relax on those cool nights in the hot tub and enjoy conversation as you soak and let the stresses of the day melt away. It’s also the perfect place for kids to get out those road-trip wiggles and burn some energy before heading back to your cozy cabin.

Other Amenities
This condo has more to give! Watch cable on all 3 of your flatscreen TVs or choose to use the DVD player and have a movie night with all of your guests. Hop on the free high-speed wireless internet provided to find local activities and restaurants or just surf the web for news and fun. Keep your laundry fresh during your visit or even wash before you return home with the washer and dryer in your condo. Close to Nature provides more than fun and relaxation – it offers tons of conveniences to make you feel right at home and comfortable while you’re away.
