Living Room
Before heading out to Gatlinburg coffee shops, seasonal event kickoffs, or waterfall hikes in the national park, wake up to brilliant mountain scenery through the A-frame wall of windows in the cozy living room at your Gatlinburg cabin. Along with tons of natural light and great views, you can switch on the big screen TV for added entertainment, prop up your feet on the reclining sofa, or crack open that book you’ve been meaning to read.

In late fall and winter months, enjoy classic cabin vibes with the electric, heated fireplace. An antler chandelier hangs above you, and the rolling coffee table makes it easy to share snacks and drinks. You’ll also notice adorable and charming mountain decor, including a swinging bear, a canoeing raccoon, and Lucas the bear totem who protects the cabin.

Start your days with a healthy breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen at your Gatlinburg cabin rental. This space offers major and minor appliances, plenty of counter space, and all the tools needed to prepare and serve meals, snacks, and drinks on your Smoky Mountain vacation. Eager for coffee in the morning? Easily brew pots or single cups of joe with the 2 coffeemakers. There’s also space at the breakfast bar to sit and sip with friends.

Dining Area
When you’re ready for mealtimes with mountain views, head to the square dining table just off the full kitchen at your cabin rental in Gatlinburg, TN. Enjoy takeout from Calhoun’s in Gatlinburg or homemade dishes made by the chef in your group, with additional space on the sofas and stools. The square table makes it easy to set up board and card games. And you can piece together puzzles, set up laptops for work or homeschool, and make crafts if you like.

The view from this cabin is incredible

October 2023

The view from this cabin is incredible, the living room and dining room are some what cramped but overall comfortable. In the description of the property a queen bed is mentioned in the upstairs bedroom but it is most definitely a full size. This room would be good for children but a little tight for 2 adults, the matress is in need of an update, we ended up sleeping on the trundle bed in the basement/ game room. Amenities were all good and we had everything we needed for our week long trip. The TV was all streaming and new apps could not be added as you needed the roku code for most of it. We tried to contact the property manager about the TV codes but did not get any answers to our questions. Overall a wonderful week in a beautiful cabin, we did have bears on the deck on 2 seperate occasions, so that was also a plus!
