With all the charm of a sweet cottage in the hills, this rental will lead you to enjoy nature, enjoy peace and quiet, and re-center yourself from the hustle and bustle of daily life. You’ll find that you have all you really need right where you are. Kick off your shoes and let your stress roll away here in this cozy home away from home. It’s no secret that a little escape away from the norm—especially in a place as breathtakingly beautiful as the Smoky Mountains—can truly restore your soul.
Living Room Relax your feet as you take a seat in the comfortable couch or on one of two comfortable chairs. The coffee table is a perfect place to set your book and a cup of coffee. A large flatscreen TV hangs above the lovely stone fireplace, one of the cabin’s most attractive features. In cooler months, ignite a fire in the fireplace to make this cabin a picture-perfect experience. You might grab a blanket and cozy up on the couch while watching a movie, or let your cares drift away as you escape into a good book. Whatever you desire, Restores My Soul is sure to be a charming setting.
Kitchen As you step into the cabin, you’ll notice the kitchen area, complete with a full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, and microwave. No matter what kind of meal you are interested in whipping up during your stay—be it quick and simple or something a little more elaborate—you can find the cooking appliances needed to make you feel like you’re right at home in your own kitchen. And if you would appreciate skipping the grocery store, you can easily plan ahead to have a full breakfast, picnic, or dinner for 2 stocked and ready to go in your refrigerator upon arrival. All you’ll have to do is cook up the goods in your fully equipped kitchen. Check out all our options for cabin add-ons, including meals, gift baskets, and more.
For instance, our Mountain Breakfast includes a dozen eggs, bacon, pancake mix and syrup, coffee, filters and condiments, butter, milk, orange juice, banana muffins, and assorted fruit. If you’re traveling alone, this could last you the weekend if you save up the leftovers. Or choose a Smoky Mountain Picnic package and have a stocked pantry waiting for your arrival. It’s perfect for a day in the mountains or for an evening in front of the fire. It will include assorted cookies, potato chips, Smoky Mountain taffy, sparkling cider, two wine glasses, summer sausage, crackers, a loaf of bread, mayonnaise, mustard, a snack tray, two plates with napkins and plastic cutlery, assorted fruit, and potato and macaroni salad, along with a meat and cheese tray of turkey, roast beef, and ham, American and Swiss cheese, tomato, and lettuce. This meal could provide enough for you and a guest to enjoy.
Dining Area Have a seat at this 2-person table for breakfast, reading, or a nice dinner. Enjoy watching the morning news from the table as you sip your coffee or have a nice breakfast, or break out a crossword puzzle, a board game, or a deck of cards for a little bit of easy fun. Or, have a seat with your laptop and read up on our Cabins for YOU blog to be sure you’re in the know. We’ve got you covered when it comes to fun in the Smokies.
Bedroom When it’s time to rest, the comfortable queen-size bed with wall-mounted night lamps on both sides will be a perfect place. Just steps away from the living room, this area will give you a cozy space for sleeping. Off the bedroom you’ll find a convenient full bath. You can even see the television from here, or turn off all the noise and notice the beauty outside your window. Take time to relax and recharge with a full night of restful sleep in your mountain cabin, and wake up to a new day feeling refreshed.
Outdoor Spaces Have a seat at the garden bench in front of the cabin and watch the stream roll past you. You might see wildlife like deer or turkeys, or just listen to the birds chirping. Around the side of the cabin, a picnic table and grill are ready for your use. Spend days unwinding and evenings enjoying outdoor meals at your cozy cabin in the woods.
When you feel like stepping out for a bit of fun, plenty of nearby attractions await you. Whether you decide to hit Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, you’re luckily within minutes of both here at Restores My Soul.
