Pop in your kids’ favorite Blu-Ray from home for the perfect rainy-day movie on the flatscreen in the cabin.

After putting the kids to bed, cuddle with your partner in front of the warm flames dancing in the stone fireplace accented by mountain-motif décor.
Lay out the groceries on the spacious counter before storing them in the full-size refrigerator and wooden cabinets for easy meal and snacking options without ever leaving the cabin! After working up your appetite while hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the morning, warm some soup on the stovetop and pop some bread in the toaster for a quick lunch in the afternoon.

The microwave comes in handy when those late-night cravings hit and your leftovers in the refrigerator begin calling to you.
While dinner is still cooking in the kitchen, grab all the necessary dishes and cups supplied in the cabinets to set the dining table for the delicious meal to be served.

Climb into the large tub accented by earth-toned tiles and wood before turning into bed for the night. Rest easy in the evenings in your king or queen-size bed and comfy bedding after long, exhilarating days riding roller coasters in Dollywood. Fall asleep to some late-night TV shows on the flatscreen or finish the last chapter of your favorite book under the soft light of the bear lamp of the bedside table. Or you can squeeze in a relaxing afternoon nap under the soft breeze of the ceiling fan before getting ready for dinner and a show at Dixie Stampede.
The loft not only has an extra bed for guests, but also board games and bean bags to kick back in!

Play cards and sip on a cold drink at the high-top table while your favorite sports team plays on the mounted flatscreen.
Let the kids splash and play in the hot tub while you and your friends laugh and talk around the patio table nearby in the evening before putting them to bed in the loft. Get some quiet moments of real relaxation in the hot tub in the mornings before setting out to Gatlinburg for the day. Read a book while sipping on your morning coffee in the dreamy early light pouring in over you through the patio windows or soothe your tired muscles while soaking in the hot tub in the evening after biking through the Smokies.
While the kids run around and play in the yard with your family dog in the front yard, slowly rock back and forth on the front porch, sipping cold sweet tea in front of this picturesque scene in the late afternoon. Sway hand in hand with your favorite person on the porch swing in the evening as fireflies glimmer across the lawn and the golden sunlight of dusk fades to night.
In the cool of the evening, light a fire in the outdoor iron fire pit and take a seat on the benches to begin roasting marshmallows for the perfect s’mores.
