Peaceful Retreat, 2 Bedrooms, Yard, Hot Tub, Air Hockey, Pets, Sleeps 8
Peaceful Retreat is well named: This pet-friendly cabin, which can sleep 8 people, is located on a large, semi-secluded lot, framed by lush trees and bordering Caney Creek. The kids and Rover will love running around the spacious yard, just as you and the other adults will enjoy lazing on the creekside glider, listening to the waters burble over the rocks. Or you can relish the crisp mountain breeze and the chirping of larks and sparrows from the cabin’s covered wraparound deck. As well as rockers—an essential for any Smoky Mountain retreat—the deck features a roomy hot tub. A serene setting, massaging jets of water, the company of family and friends: What more could you want?
As it happens, Peaceful Retreat has plenty more to offer. The loft’s game room, for instance, has both a pool table and an air hockey table. If you’re tuckered out from a day of hiking, skiing, or exploring Dollywood, you can relax in the main floor’s living room. Stretch out on the sofa to watch TV (the cabin has satellite channels and a DVD player), curl up in the recliner with that book you never have time to read at home, or gather by the stone-surround gas fireplace to plan the next day’s adventures.
Peaceful Retreat’s kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware, so you can eat in as often as you’d like. Even if you prefer to dine out during your stay—and there are scores of restaurants nearby—you’ll appreciate the convenience of having a refrigerator to keep milk and wine cold and a coffee maker for brewing your morning cup of joe. The cabin has a charcoal grill as well. Whether it’s trout you reeled in yourself or burgers from the supermarket, it will taste even better when barbecued alfresco.
Each of the 2 bedrooms has a log-frame queen-size bed, a TV, and ample storage. The loft’s bedroom, just off the game room, offers a bonus: a large Jacuzzi. A pampering soak is an idyllic way to end the day—or to start it, for that matter. In addition, the living room sofa converts into a bed for 2, as does the game room’s futon.
Along with 2 bedrooms, Peaceful Retreat has 2 bathrooms, one on each level. When you arrive you’ll find plenty of clean towels, as well as the beds impeccably made up and extra bedding at the ready—no need for you to bring linens from home. In fact, because Peaceful Retreat has its own washer and dryer, you can pack even lighter than usual… and return from your stay with clean clothes in your suitcase for a change.
As you listen to the bubbling brook, the wind whispering among the trees, songbirds during the day, and owls at night, you can easily forget just how close Peaceful Retreat is to the popular attractions of both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. In just 5 minutes you can be at the Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to the Titanic Museum, WonderWorks educational amusement park, the Tanger outlet mall, TopJump Trampoline Park, go-kart tracks, dinner theaters, arcades, and more. Dollywood and Parrot Mountain and Gardens are less than 15 minutes away.
Nearly as close are the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which you can explore on foot, bike, or horseback, and the Smoky Mountains Arts & Crafts Community, an 8-mile trail of more than 120 studios, shops, and galleries. Even downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Adventure, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, thrill rides, and a tram that takes you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, is less than 20 minutes away.
If you value quiet and calm but don’t want to be too far from the action, Peaceful Retreat is the Smoky Mountains cabin for you. Reserve your stay today, before someone else beats you to it!
