Rainy days are no match for this laid-back abode, where you’ll find a big screen TV and DVD player with bear-motif seating in the living room; a pool table and pub-style table by the bunk beds; and a foosball table in another cozy living area with a flatscreen TV and comfy leather seating.

Head to your vacation home in the Smokies and Think a Little Less for a change.

Living Room
Step into the charming living room, featuring gorgeous hardwood floors, a stone gas fireplace with beautiful eagle totems, novelty reading lamps, and plush seating. Rest after your travels on the sofa, pick up a new read on the arm chair, or switch on the whopping big screen TV with DVD player for movie night. On chilly evenings, get a toasty fire going, brew a pot of joe in the nearby kitchen, and swap ghost stories on the area rug.

Mealtimes are made easy in the fully equipped kitchen, where full-size black appliances, dishes and glasses, utensils and tools, and a spacious breakfast bar with stool seating for 4 await. There’s even a handy dishwasher to clean up all the mess. Store your favorite drinks and snacks, get ingredients from the local farmers market for homemade meals, or just have a place to keep rich fudge and tasty leftovers after playing downtown.

Dining Area
With an open concept, Think a Little Less presents a homey dining experience, with 4 bar stools in the kitchen, a side table for 2, and living room seating. This means you can keep watching your favorite shows and films without missing a beat at mealtimes. Plus, the open design allows for close-knit conversations between family and friends.

Rec Room
Ready for fun-loving good times? Head downstairs to the rec room, boasting game tables, a media space, and a bunk bed for the kiddos. Play rousing rounds of pool, swiftly followed by a few foosball matches. Need a bit of luck on your side for the final round? Give the majestic eagle totem a gentle pat on the head. And for those who want to stick close to the action yet relax a little, enjoy a show on the flatscreen TV while chilling on the sofa and matching arm chair.

Time for some shut-eye — in a king-size bed no less! Venture to the spacious loft or cozy bedroom for a restful night’s sleep with entertainment before bed on a flatscreen TV. And don’t forget to hop in the indoor jetted tub for a relaxing spa bath, best taken with rose-scented bubbles, a few lit candles, and classical tunes. For additional sleeping arrangements, there are 2 sleeper sofas in the home plus the bunk bed in the rec room.

Outdoor Spaces
The outdoor spaces at semi-private Think a Little Less offer tree-studded views and peaceful thoughts as you reconnect with nature. Barbecue ribs, chicken, and veggies, on the gas grill for a feast, chill with a cup of joe in a rocking chair every morning, and soak in the outdoor hot tub every evening on the screened-in deck. While the roads to the cabin are curvy plus the paved driveway is steep and curvy as well, the parking area for 2 is paved to make unpacking and loading the cars hassle-free.

Reviews for Think a Little Less

  • "Beautiful cabin at such a great location! We couldn't believe how close we were to the state park. It really did feel like my family and I were in heaven for a week. We definitely did "think a little less" on this years Tennessee trip. I would recommend this cabin to all my family and friends! Super clean and spacious."

  • "I want to rave about how clean this cabin is especially for being in the side of the mountain. We expected to see spider webs and bugs everywhere. Not a cobweb in site! Floors where nice and clean. Lots of room"

      We're glad you enjoyed the spacious rooms and clean accommodations at Think A Little Less! We would love to host you again in the future!

  • "We own our own cabins we rent out so we have an eye for what cabins should be. Stayed at Think A Little Less. Cabin was clean well stocked with dishes. Hot tub worked great. Driveway was scary. We left car at bottom and walked up. WiFi was excellent. Each cabin is individually owned and getting all owners to keep everything up is hard I am sure. Staff also graciously let us check in an hour early we really appreciated after driving all night and sleepy"

  • "Perfect spot for a long weekend! Loved the hot tub!"

  • "Great cabin, good location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge"

  • "For a city girl like myself, navigating the mountains and accessing the cabin was a bit hectic. However, the directions that were provided by the host were helpful. The cabin location is great, as it’s near the main attractions and city. We also really loved the game room and hot tub. My only issue with the cabin is that, the mattresses on the pullout sofas, were paper thin. So much so, that we weren’t able to sleep on them. Overall, we enjoyed our stay."

  • "Easy an fast to book. There membership has great perks. Cabin was just like in pictures on website they have. Clean an all around great time an the location was great. I highly recommend cabins for you."

  • "Quick easy and lots of options."

  • "Beautiful cabin. Drive way was steep. We loved “Think A Little Less”."
