Ideally located and just the right size for a getaway with up to eight guests, Hillside Escape is a beautiful Smoky Mountain cabin. It’s located about 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, TN and all of the local attractions, including Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and the Village Shops. Hillside Escape is also in perfect proximity to the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community on an 8-mile loop road. Hillside Escape’s location keeps you close to all that Gatlinburg has to offer, while also giving you the feeling of being away in the mountains!

Hillside Escape is a cozy two bedroom, two bathroom mountain cabin rental. There are two levels in this cabin with a bedroom on each floor, so guests can enjoy peace and privacy at night. The master bedroom is located on the upper level and has its own bathroom. It even has an indoor Jacuzzi tub where you can have a relaxing soak at the end of the night or a refreshing soak to start your day. The lower level bedroom has a queen size bed and a picture window that offers a lovely mountain view. For additional sleeping needs, Hillside Escape offers a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room!

Inside the fully equipped kitchen, you will find everything you need to prepare countless delicious meals during your stay. A nice dining table by the kitchen has room for six guests, and a bar area with three bar stools offers more seating. Kids will especially love having breakfast here before heading to the living room for their favorite cartoons. After eating, you can move into the living room to relax and watch some of your favorite movies or TV shows. Everyone can enjoy the gas fireplace for extra warmth and a great glow on those cool Gatlinburg nights. Sit on any of the comfortable plush sofas while you relax after a busy day of mountain fun!

If you are coming to vacation at Hillside Escape in the spring or summer months, you can enjoy a cookout on the grill with your friends and family in the warm mountain air. There is a beautiful outdoor sitting area where guests can gather to have meals when the weather permits. After a long day sightseeing in town or in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you can come back to Hillside Escape and soak for a while in the outdoor hot tub. After taking a soak, have some fun with the ones you love by showing your competitive side during a game of pool!

There is also a TV and stereo in the loft where the pool table is located, so both kid and adults could spend hours playing and hanging out here. Listen to music or watch TV while your family plays pool and you cheer them on. For just a dollar a day, you can also have outdoor pool access. During warm months, enjoy laying out and soaking up the sun or splashing around in the pool with the kids.

Other great amenities include wireless Internet, a TV in each bedroom, CD and DVD players, rocking chairs, and a semi-private location. Enjoy peace and serenity, along with wooded views from almost every space in this cabin!

  • "We had a great first family vacation at Hillside Escape in Gatlinburg. It was a nice size for all eight of us during Labor Day weekend. We even saw a bear!"

  • "Very nice cabin. Very clean and cozy. Close to the strip only a few minute drive. I’m for sure staying here again soon!"

  • "Amazing place which was super clean. The pictures were very accurate. The pool table, hot tub, and grill make for a good time between events. Plenty of comfortable places to sleep as well."

  • "Great location and place was very clean and inviting."

  • "Nice place!"

  • "Very clean. It was a very relaxing time thanks."

  • "The space was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. It was very homey, and there were several things provided in the kitchen and the game room upstairs. Check in and check out was quick and easy. There was quick communication with everyone and they were all very friendly and helpful. The location is great and close to a lot of fun things to do."

  • "It’s amazing!!!"

  • "This cabin was AMAZING! From the ease of check-in, to the perfect location, and fabulous amenities. The beds were SUPER comfortable and the cabin was immaculate. The pool table and hot tub were favorites of our kids! We will definitely be back!"

  • "We stayed at the Hillside Escape cabin and it was great, close Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The cabin is well equipped and very roomy. The hot tub was great too. I will recommend this cabin without any hesitation. Thanks for a great vacation. "

  • "My family and I had a great time there. It exceed our expectations. Will be booking again."

  • "We just stayed in our cabin June 2020! We stayed in hillside escape! It was very clean. I could tell it was freshly vacuumed! The beds were very comfortable. There was a futon mattress that we put on top of the couch bed because the couch bed was very thin and springy as most are. There were lots of towels! There was a bag with some paper towels, sponge, dish soap, and other helpful things! Our hot tub was not heating and they quickly sent someone to fix it (like 20 minutes quick). My only downside would be that it’s not very baby friendly. I would recommend outlet covers because I spent a lot of time blocking my one year old from outlets! I would definitely recommend and will be booking with them again!"

  • "Our cabin was amazing! We had a great time and everything we could possibly need was already provided! Highly recommend!"

  • "My family and I had such an amazing time at this place we can’t wait to go back! The Cabin was marvelous! And I loved the fact that we arrived 2 hours earlier than the check-in time and we were still able to access the cabin at that time by just paying $20 extra. The person I spoke to over the phone was very polite and friendly, she made the entire check-in process very easy! Gatlinburg is truly breath-taking and for a family of 5 it was the perfect spot! Who ever goes will certainly not regret it! Blessings to all."

  • "Loved the cabin, everything was extremely clean, it was super easy to check in and out , the location was perfect too! Great place definitely recommend!"

  • "We stayed at Hillside Escape and it was AWESOME! Close enough to town, but far enough away to feel like you were in the mountains. The fireplace was incredible. No chopping wood or smoke. Just turn a dial and instant heat. Plenty of room and everything you need. We will be booking again."
