Grab your glass of Muscadine wine after dinner and settle into one of the plush leather chairs by the fire in the living room. Ample natural lighting pours in through expansive windows as you lounge on the couch and watch the kids use the coffee table to pick through their gems mined at Goats On The Roof. Spend downtime in the afternoon reading a book by the fire during colder months or under the breeze of the ceiling fan during a summer vacation. Play your favorite action movie on the large flatscreen TV mounted between the rustic tree trunks flanking the electric fireplace.
The open floor plan of the common areas lends to the natural, flowy feeling of the cabin with mountain views in sight from each shared space. Grab all the groceries from the sleek black refrigerator to begin preparing dinner on the extended granite countertop in the afternoon. Pull all the cookware, plates, and cups you need from the wooden cabinets to prepare dinner and set the table. Reheat leftovers from Mama’s Farmhouse in the microwave to indulge those midnight snack cravings. In the morning, use your kitchen’s coffeemaker to supplement your breakfast toast with a little cup of liquid energy after such a deep, restful sleep in your cozy bed.
It is like dining out even when dining in the cabin as you enjoy the inviting atmosphere around the dark wood “L” shaped booth surrounded by beautiful shiplap accented by the glow of the chandelier. Discuss your favorite moments from the day in Gatlinburg in between bites and sips of sweet tea made in the cabin. After dinner, clear the table and laugh the night away playing card games with friends. In the morning light drifting in from the windows, sip on your morning coffee while reading a newspaper or a book from the Moon Pie General Book Store.
Exquisite log bed frames and mountain motif furnishings welcome you into your home away from home. Sleep well in the evenings after adventurous days in Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, slide under the cozy covers of your queen-size bed and let the soft breeze of the ceiling fan lull you to sleep.
Take your time getting out of bed in the mornings and watch your favorite early talk shows on your bedroom’s flatscreen TV. Once you have pried yourself from the comfort of your bed, in either bathroom, revel in the warm waters of the walk-in tile shower with a showerhead on each wall and a bench to relax on while soaking in the steam.
In the lower level’s game room, you and the kids can entertain yourselves on budget-friendly days in the Smoky Mountains playing pool and arcade games in the afternoons. Before soaking in the hot tub on the patio, laugh at you and another guest’s amateur attempt at pool in the waning daylight shining through the windows. Sip on a cold drink and shoot some pool while watching ESPN on the flatscreen mounted on the nearby wall. While vacationing with another family, the couples take the bedrooms while the kids enjoy a sleepover in the log bunk beds located in the game room where they can watch movies before falling asleep. As the adults hang out on the patio, the kids laugh and try their hands at the “old school” way of gaming on the authentic multi-game arcade system.
Your mornings are perfectly tranquil with coffee in hand, breathtaking mountain views, and listening to your favorite podcasts streaming over the cabin Wi-Fi while swaying in the rocking chair. Use these serene, quiet moments to write, listen to nature, or discuss life with a close friend before getting the day completely started. Smoke some steaks on the gas grill for a delicious meal in the cabin or grill out on a summer day and enjoy hamburgers and hot dogs at the picnic table on the deck.
Then slip into the soothing bubbly waters of the outdoor hot tub after horseback riding through Cades Cove to give your tired legs some relief. Toast to another dreamy day in the Smoky Mountains as the sun falls over the rolling waves of mountain peaks in the distance before giving way to starry skies uninterrupted by city lights.
Bike Trails in the Smokies
Pack the bikes and tour the great outdoors on some of the most beautiful, scenic trails you have ever cycled on! Make a day of it and bike the 11-mile Cades Cove Loop Road around the serene mountain valley where you are very likely to catch glimpses of wildlife in the mornings or take an easy trail with scenic views on the flat 2-mile Gatlinburg Trail that runs alongside the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River.
Be sure to visit this observation tower that sits 6,643 feet tall, making it the highest point of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You don’t have to be an expert hiker or mountain climber; the short 1/2-mile trek along a paved path makes getting to the peak a feat the whole family can make.
