Hear the sound of the rushing creek flow past while soaking in the steamy hot tub on the deck at your inviting and cozy log cabin in the trees of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. With amenities to entertain and relax, conveniences of home, and a peaceful location in the Smokies, this 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom cabin rental in Gatlinburg is ideal for group stays and boasts 2,800 square feet of space for up to 14 guests. Plus, there are plenty of group activities in downtown Gatlinburg, too!

Inside your Gatlinburg vacation rental, you’ll have a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen for meals, snacks, and drinks anytime, a living room with a crackling fireplace and a huge TV, plus a game loft with air hockey, Pac-Man, and kid toys. You’ll also have a laundry space with a washer and dryer, free high speed Wi-Fi to stay connected, spa jetted tubs to relax, and a mix of 1 king bed, 2 full beds, 2 twin beds, 2 daybeds with trundles, and 1 queen sleeper.

Outside, the deck at this Gatlinburg cabin invites you to unwind in the hot tub, sip coffee in the chairs, or fire up the gas grill for a mountain cookout. You can walk down the stone steps to reach the creek and enjoy the tranquil towering trees while roasting marshmallows around the stone firepit. There’s enough grassy space to stretch your legs, and you’ll find swings bolted between the trees for the kiddos.

What else awaits at this semi-private cabin in Gatlinburg? Apple TV adds entertainment, and provided board games offer more things to do together. There’s a TV in every bedroom so there’s no fighting over the remote. And roads to the cabin are flat and paved for easier arrivals to the flat, gravel driveway with parking for 3-4 vehicles. Whether you’re planning a family gathering or a getaway with friends, this Great Smoky Mountain retreat has everything you need and more!

Living Room
Sipping some Ole Smoky Moonshine at your Gatlinburg cabin in the woods is a classic mountain experience. Get comfy in the relaxing living room, lounging on the sofa with a chaise, reading in the armchairs, or cuddling with your partner on the spacious loveseat. Windows brighten up the space with views of the lofty trees, and there’s a wall of stacked stones that houses a gas fireplace.

When it’s cooler outside, light a fire, pass around mugs of cocoa, and enjoy a cozy evening together. For more entertainment, switch on the big screen TV and sign in to Apple TV to watch favorite shows and movies. With snacks, treats, and drinks in hand, it’ll be a blast! And if it’s a warm day in the Smokies, you’ll appreciate the ceiling fan hanging from the raised ceiling.

Hiking Smoky Mountain trails, playing at downtown attractions, or hanging out at your fun cabin rental in Gatlinburg will make you hungry! It’s so nice to have a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen on vacation in the Smokies. All you need to bring are the ingredients, snacks, drinks, and recipes.

At Shady Creek, you’ll have stainless steel appliances — including a range with a double oven, a huge fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, and dishwasher — pots and pans, plenty of counter space, a sink with a window, dishes, cooking utensils, glassware, cutlery, mugs, and more. Cook full meals, store leftovers, and mix cocktails…whatever you like!

Dining Area
Built into the kitchen, the dining area is connected to the heart of this vacation home in Gatlinburg. The table with a bench and chairs sits right up against the counter, keeping drink refills, hearty seconds, and after-meal desserts close at hand.

When you want to spend more time together, there are even board games you can play at the table. This space is also great for Smoky Mountain arts and crafts, homeschool lessons, work meetings, or midnight margaritas!

Rec Loft
Want more space to spread out and have fun at your Gatlinburg cabin in the Smokies? Head to the game loft that features an air hockey table, a tabletop arcade game, and even toys for the kids. Sit the little ones at the kids' table to color, knock the air hockey puck into the goal, and beat the highest Pac-Man scores! You’ll also have more wooded views and a ceiling fan to keep cool.

Playing a few rounds at Bent Creek Golf Course, skydiving indoors, beating escape games in town, or exploring the national park demands a good night’s sleep at your Gatlinburg cabin rental. Between 3 bedrooms, 2 sunrooms, and the living room, there’s a mix of bedding for your group — 1 king-size bed, 2 full-size beds, 2 twin-size beds, 2 daybeds with trundles, and 1 queen-size sleeper sofa.

Each bedroom has a TV to keep everyone entertained, and there are jetted tubs for soothing spa baths in the bathrooms connected to the 2 entry-level bedrooms. Also, the sunrooms are located through glass doors from the main bedrooms. With wooded views all around, they’re beautiful spaces that can be used for reading, relaxing with a friend, or sipping coffee.

Outdoor Spaces
After searching for new decor pieces for your home in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, riding horses in Cades Cove, ziplining with friends, or buying every flavor of homemade fudge to try, kick back in the scenic and peaceful outdoor spaces at your semi-private Gatlinburg cabin. Trees tower just off the open deck that features a bubbling hot tub with jets, a sitting area, and a gas grill. You can also spot the sparkling creek from the deck!

Set your glass of sweet tea or mug of coffee on the table and enjoy a nice chat with an old friend while the water rushes past and trees sway in the mountain breezes. Cook taco burgers, prime steaks, or shish kabobs on the fiery Char-Broil gas grill. And slip into the hot tub day or night!

For more outdoor fun, walk down stone steps to the creek right behind the house for a closer look or to cast a line for fish. You can make s’mores at the stone firepit that features Adirondack-style chairs. There’s even a row of swings bolted between two trees for the kids to play. You can also take a stroll around the grassy space.

As for traveling, you’ll appreciate the flat, paved roads to reach this Gatlinburg cabin. The driveway is also flat with gravel and boasts parking space for 3-4 vehicles. You can even bring a trailer if you want. And there are only 4 steps up to the front porch, which makes unloading and reloading the cars so much easier!

The sounds of home just kept going thru my mind. The cabin was gorgeous as well which made the stay even better. The cabin was clean and well maintained. There was a fir pit in the yard with seats all around. We really enjoyed that also. They had pacman and air hockey upstairs. My son loved it. There was too much stuff to mention but overall we had an amazing time and would definitely recommend"
