John Muir said it best: “The mountains are calling, and I must go.” These words have transported many hearts and minds from reality to a distant mountaintop. If your heart’s desire is to be transported to the heart of one of the most majestic mountain ranges in the world and an authentic mountain cabin, then look no further than Hemlock Ridge in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Our Hemlock Ridge cabin sleeps up to 4 guests with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on 2 spacious, inviting floors. Take a step out onto the deck and you’re immediately in the middle of the Smoky Mountains. Take a few minutes...or hours…to just sit on a wooden porch swing and experience the grand, natural beauty that engulfs the Hemlock Ridge cabin. Imagine your delight as you inhale the mountain air and realize your journey has taken you to the exact place your heart most wanted to be. You have heard the mountains’ call, and you have answered.
Of course, the mountains are breathtaking, but if you choose the 2,100+-square-foot Hemlock Ridge cabin, there’s not much of a drop-off in beauty when you step back inside. The real wood and exposed beams will make you feel at home in the wilderness and add to the mountain feel. With all the comforts and amenities this cabin has to offer, you’ll find yourself hoping for a rainy day during your stay at Hemlock Ridge so that you have an excuse to stay indoors and fully enjoy this getaway.
Relax on the deck or enjoy a movie night-in with a surplus of amenities to accommodate guests of all ages. Hemlock Ridge is perfect for those looking to relax with friends and family in a private setting that is still close to community amenities. Stay in tune with the outside world with the provided Wi-Fi. As you pull out of the accommodating driveway, you’re only around 13 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg.
Living Room You will be in awe as you walk in through the main door and see the wide-open living area. The beautiful wood bannister teases your eyes with the promise of even more cabin to enjoy. The suede leather sofa and chairs provide an inviting, cozy place to congregate and relax as a couple or with your guests. The gas fireplace transforms a chilly, mountain evening into a warm, cozy hideout.
Catch up on your favorite shows on the cable TV or pop in a DVD. If you’re feeling nostalgic, slide in a VHS tape and watch one of your old favorite movies. Whether you’ve just stumbled out of bed or returned “home” from a day of adventuring, this space is sure to draw you in and provide the comfortable lounge you need.
Kitchen With the open floorplan, you can keep right on socializing or even watching TV while you’re preparing meals. The full kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and range, residential refrigerator, icemaker, coffeemaker, microwave, toaster, cookware, and dishwasher. There is plenty of cabinet space to make yourself at home for a long, enjoyable stay. Cook a full meal or warm up your leftovers from a vast array of local dining establishments. Then you can pull a barstool up to the eat-at countertop, enjoy a sit-down meal at the table, or carry your meal upstairs to enjoy in the rec room. A washer and dryer are included for your convenience.
Rec Room Atop the authentic, mountain cabin staircase, you’ll find a loft area that overlooks the living room below. Come here to enjoy a game of pool on the regulation pool table. Relax as you watch TV or listen to music on the stereo or sit down at the table for a meal or refreshments. In between games of pool, you can catch up on news or emails over the included Wi-Fi.
Bedrooms The 2 bedrooms in Hemlock Ridge cabin are the perfect size for an individual or couple. The en-suite bathrooms include a shower and jetted tub in which to relax before bed. His and hers sinks at the large vanity mirrors make getting ready to head to Gatlinburg an enjoyable experience.
Outdoor Spaces There is certainly lots to enjoy out on the deck at Hemlock Ridge. Sit on the porch swing and take in the mountain views or just close your eyes and lean your head back as you sit on the quaint, wooden bench. Grill steaks, burgers, or your favorite barbecued food on the gas grill, then enjoy a meal on the outdoor patio furniture. Once you’re full, slip into the outdoor hot tub and feel all your cares melt away. The mountain views are spectacular and will make you wonder why you didn’t heed their call sooner.
