Planning a family getaway to the Smokies? Thunder Mountain Dawg House is an ideal property for small groups or single-family vacations. This 2-bedroom, 2-bath home sleeps up to 6 guests and is conveniently located off Ski Mountain Road, just a few blocks from the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort. Not to mention you’ll be 5 minutes from the excitement of downtown Gatlinburg!

At Thunder Mountain Dawg House, you’ll enjoy a secluded getaway in the middle of the Smoky Mountain woods. But from your back porch, you’ll have access to more than a tree-studded view. Peaks of the Smokies peek out as you relish a soak in your outdoor hot tub or sip a favorite drink on the spacious porch. Inside this cabin, take advantage of this home’s many extras like an indoor whirlpool, a fully equipped kitchen, and exciting children's playroom.

Thunder Mountain Dawg House really is a great choice for families—and not just because the kids can have their own space in the children's playroom upstairs. This home also welcomes the family pooch! Beyond that, enjoy community access to outdoor pools, tennis courts, game tables, and workout equipment at 3 clubhouses in Chalet Village Resort, a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, and a rustic interior, which complements perfectly the woodsy, serene setting outside. What more could you be looking for in the Smokies?

Living Room
After playing mini golf in downtown Gatlinburg or a day of biking around Cades Cove, you’ll be looking for a place to rest and relax with your family. In Thunder Mountain Dawg House, you’ll find just the right space inside this home’s spacious living room. With wood floors and a stone, wood-burning fireplace (in season from October through March), you’ll find that the rustic interior perfectly complements the wooded views just outside of the living room’s floor-to-ceiling windows.

This living room is the space you’ll need to host family movie nights—all you need to bring is the popcorn! Thunder Mountain Dawg House supplies the 50-inch flatscreen TV, DVD player, and access to cable, meaning you don’t have to miss any of your favorite shows while you’re out of town. Beyond that, this living room provides a space to swap Christmas gifts should you decide to plan your visit during the holidays. You’ll love the Christmas decorations surrounding you and the various activities Gatlinburg has planned for the season, conveniently located just down the road from Thunder Mountain Dawg House.

Other benefits of the living room include access to the deck through the sliding glass door, the use of multiple leather couches, and side tables and lamps for your comfort and convenience. Around the corner, you’ll also find a 6-person dining table, ready and waiting for your family to enjoy a homemade dinner, a game of cards, or a night of swapping stories and sipping hot cocoa. Whatever you have planned, Thunder Mountain Dawg House provides the space!

Eating out is one of the joys of being on vacation in the Smokies. Gatlinburg alone offers some of the area’s favorite restaurants, like Crockett’s Breakfast Camp, Log Cabin Pancake House, and Delauder’s BBQ. But if you’re wanting to enjoy a home-cooked meal during your stay at Thunder Mountain Dawg House, you absolutely can! This home offers a full kitchen with an oven/stove, full-size refrigerator, and dishwasher. You’ll also find additional amenities like a toaster, a microwave, cookware, and a coffeemaker. So go ahead and plan some meals in your home away from home. Or enjoy some late-night popcorn and early morning coffee. Thunder Mountain Dawg House makes it all possible!

Children's Playroom
Need a space where the kids can play while you’re on vacation? Thunder Mountain Dawg House has the perfect spot! Check out the bonus playroom, which comes stocked with a 42-inch flatscreen TV for gaming. If you like, stop by Chalet Village on your way in to check out a Wii console and games that you’re welcome to use during your stay. But even without that, Thunder Mountain Dawg House’s children's playroom offers an air hockey table, DVD access, and cable TV. This room is a great escape for a little fun on a rainy day or an extra bedroom for the kiddos, should you need it.

If you’re bringing the family, parents can stay in the primary bedroom on the main floor. This bedroom features a king-size bed, an en suite bathroom with a shower, and an indoor whirlpool tub!

The second (upstairs) bedroom features a king-size bed like the primary bedroom, along with its own 32-inch flatscreen TV and bathroom with a tub/shower combo.

Outdoor Spaces
The outdoor spaces are one of the best features of Thunder Mountain Dawg House! This secluded home, nestled in the Smoky Mountain woods, offers more than a wooded view. From the back porch, while enjoying a relaxing afternoon on one of the rocking chairs, soak up gorgeous views of the Smoky Mountain peaks. If it’s a cool night, continue your sightseeing from the outdoor hot tub, and enjoy a casual soak while you soak in the views. The seclusion of this home and surrounding trees offers you total privacy as you relax, and you’re also provided a gas grill and outdoor seating should you want to plan a family cookout while you’re away.
