Cherokee, 1 Bedroom, Near Ober Gatlinburg, Hot Tub, Fireplace, Sleeps 4
Gatlinburg - Smoky Mountains
Though Cherokee is a true log home, when you stay here, you’re far from roughing it. The 3-level house includes myriad modern-day necessities and luxuries, from an outdoor hot tub and indoor jetted bath, to a pool table, cable TV, and internet access.
With 2 bedrooms, each of which has a king-size bed and a full bath, Cherokee is a fabulous base for either a summertime family vacation or a ski trip with another couple. Perched atop Ski Mountain, it’s not the rental of choice for anyone with a fear of heights, but if you love aerie-like views you’ll relish every minute here. It’s also ideal for anyone who loves skiing and other winter sports, as it’s only minutes from Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, where you can ski, snowboard, snow tube, and ice skate, among many other activities.
If you’re more of the fun-in-the-sun type, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy too. Because Cherokee is part of Chalet Village, when you stay here you can use the community’s heated adult and children’s swimming pools in the summer. What’s more, Cherokee is next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its hiking trails, waterfalls, fishing, horseback riding, and so much more. And downtown Gatlinburg, home to restaurants, shops, and amusements, is only a 20-minute drive away.
Then again, once you see all of Cherokee’s amenities, you may not want to venture far afield! Let’s start with the lower level of the 3-floor home. Here’s where you’ll find the game room, with its pool table and a 42” flat-panel TV with cable and a DVD player. There’s also plenty of space for the kids to spread out their action figures, board games, and crafts to keep them entertained while you indulge in a relaxing soak in the hot tub on the adjacent porch. The view of the mountains from the hot tub is nearly as restorative as the bubbling waters!
One floor up is the main level, which show how elegant rustic style can be. The living room’s leather sofas flank the stone-surround wood-burning fireplace, making this a popular spot for cozying up on winter nights. Bring out the popcorn and make it a family movie night, courtesy of the living room’s cable TV, or clear off the stone-top dining table after dinner, bring out the Uno deck or the Monopoly board, and make it a family game night!
The beautifully appointed kitchen makes cooking a pleasure, with its gleaming stainless-steel appliances, stone countertops, cookware, and tableware. There’s plenty of storage in the cupboards and the large refrigerator/freezer, so you can stock up on groceries at the beginning of your stay—no need to waste precious vacation time taking additional trips to the supermarket.
Also on the main level is one of the 2 bedrooms. From the king-size bed you can look out at the woods or watch a favorite program on the mounted TV. The exposed beams and the ceiling fan contribute to the airy, woodsy vibe. This bedroom, like the one on the upper level, has its own full bathroom.
The upper-level suite has one advantage over the main floor’s bedroom: a jetted tub as well as standard bath facilities. Positioned beneath a large picture window, this tub offers a true bird’s-eye view of the mountains. To set the mood for romance, you and that special someone can soak together while counting the stars before tiptoeing into the suite’s king-size bed…
Whether you have romance, physical activity, adventure, or relaxation in mind, Cherokee is a spectacular place to spend your next vacation. Don’t miss out; book your reservation today!
