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 an air hockey 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.
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.
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.
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 air hockey 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.
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.
Located in the Sky Harbor resort, Think a Little Less offers a few homey extras: a washer and dryer to keep clothes and towels fresh and high-speed wireless internet to keep up with social media and post whenever you please!

"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"
