Looking for some romance? Need to reconnect? Head to Love Shack, a charming 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom, motorcycle-friendly Gatlinburg cabin with space for up to 4 guests. Here you’ll spend days relaxing and enjoying the serenity and beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, from cozy interiors to inviting exterior spaces with peaceful wooded views.

Inside, snuggle on the sofa in the living room, flip on the TV with DVD player for a movie night, and take advantage of the high-speed wireless internet. In the fully equipped kitchen, create snacks and meals for your group easily. It’s stocked with appliances, cooking tools, dishes and glassware, and utensils for in-cabin meals. Each bedroom has a king-size bed and its own TV, so guests will have private and welcoming spaces after busy days. The cabin also has a CD player, a washer/dryer, and a flat, paved driveway for easy arrivals.

Outside, soak the night away in the hot tub, fire up the charcoal grill for a cookout on nice mountain days (try steaks and kabobs for a romantic dinner), start mornings with some fresh air and a cup of coffee, or sit back with a glass of wine in the rocking chairs on the deck. From an indoor jetted tub to a stone (gas) fireplace, this romantic cabin is perfect for a couples’ getaway!

Living Room
Leave your bags at the door and head straight for the plush sofa for a rest after your travels in the living room that features hardwood floors and an open concept into the dining and kitchen areas. Switch on the flatscreen TV for a little entertainment with drinks and sweets on the coffee table or opt for a classic Smoky Mountain evening with a roaring fire in the stone (gas) fireplace and a bottle of local red. There’s even a DVD player for movie nights and an armchair plus lamp for late-night reads.

Nearby is the kitchen fully stocked with major appliances, pots and pans, cutlery, dishes, glasses, and more for in-cabin meals and snacks. Grab fresh ingredients from the fridge, rinse veggie in the stainless steel double sink, stir stew on the stove, and wait for biscuits to turn gold in the oven. Coffee lovers will appreciate the coffeemaker at all hours, plus there’s a microwave for leftovers, a toaster, blender, and a helpful dishwasher!

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen rests the dining area in front of a large window with tree-studded views. Set the round table with cushioned chairs for bountiful breakfasts, lavish lunch spreads, delectable dinners, and midnight cocoa breaks. The space is also within view of the living room TV if you’re looking for entertainment with your meal. And the table is great for catching up on emails, playing board or card games from home, or sketching a new character for your novel series.

When you’re ready to hit the hay or drift to dreamland after playing in the national park, venture into one of 2 spacious bedrooms — each with a king-size log bed for comfort and a flatscreen TV for entertainment. The loft bedroom even offers spa baths in the indoor jetted tub that’s open to the room with tunes on the CD player to really set the mood.

Outdoor Spaces
Step outdoors at the semi-private (only a few cabins within sight) Love Shack to reconnect with nature alongside tranquil woodsy views. Relax in the muscle-soothing hot tub with privacy boards, whip up grilled meals on the charcoal grill, dine at the outdoor table, and sway in the rocking chairs with a glass of cool lemonade on warmer days. And the journey to this motorcycle-friendly cabin is easy with flat, paved roads that lead to the flat, paved driveway with parking for 3 (room for a trailer).

Local Fun

Less than 2.5 miles to the center of Gatlinburg fun, Love Shack is a top choice for families or couples looking to get away in the Smoky Mountains without being too far from fine restaurants, unique shops, and cool attractions.

  • "Me and another couple stayed here on a couples trip . Everything was so nice from the view to the stay . Bed was very soft . Jacuzzi was very relaxing . Everything was convenient for us and our stay. When we first arrived we had just a minor problem but they fixed it right away communication was amazing . The price the view and the stay was all well worth it . If you thinking about booking please book . I definitely would stay here again"

  • "The cabin was absolutely amazing and I totally enjoyed my stay. We arrived and everything was clean and well kept and as pictured. It was like home away from home. The beds were comfy and there's a jetted tub upstairs and a hot tub on the porch which I just loved. We saw plenty of bears while we were at this cabin walking down the street and crossing through the woods. The cabin is close to town and even though the roads are a little steep of grade my small car had no problem getting up or down. It's a very nice cabin and very affordable and we would love to return again to this place. You would enjoy your stay, but not recommended for small children as there were bears in the area close proximity and not really any outdoor place to play. Couples would definitely enjoy this cabin and it's privacy. Overall an excellent place thank you so much we felt very welcome."

It was just the 2 of us and we enjoyed baths in the jetted tub upstairs with the music on!! Having ahoy tub was also a plus! We felt very welcomed when we got to the cabin as it was VERY clean and our cleaning lady left us a note and snacks which was very thoughtful!! 10/10 recommend this cabin. We WILL be renting again."

  • "Awesome place to stay very clean and nice"

  • "The cabin was wonderful! My only minor complaint is that the sheets were too small for the mattresses and popped off every time someone sat down. My main concern is around this being a "big business" vs. more small business personal attention I expect from VRBO. Pro tip: Don't leave anything behind. This is apparently a company with many rentals. We left my son's FAVORITE pillow. I messaged on VRBO about 45 minutes after we left, as soon as we realized.... unfortunately we were on a tight schedule and had gone too far to turn around. I gave a description and the EXACT location I had set it. The response included a link to a "lost item form." However, I messaged back and requested that someone check immediately or let the house keeping know to set it aside before stripping the beds. I got no useful response to this, no one looked, and I keep getting automated emails saying they're "still looking" when I know it's now gone for good and mixed in with the pillows on the bed. My son is DEVASTATED..... more personal attention to renters would be huge."

  • "My kiddos and I stayed for Labor Day weekend and it the best. The location and price was perfect and the beds were very comfortable. My kids asked if could rent it again because it was their “favorite!” I also enjoyed my coffee on the back porch on our last day and was entertained by one exhausted mama bear looking after her FOUR cubs!"

  • "We had an amazing time! My fiancé and I went just to get away from our kids and every day life the hot tub was amazing the keyless entry it was very clean, and everything was perfect. Could not ask for a better getaway."
