Southern Charm, 5 Bedrooms, Panoramic Views, Hot Tub, Game Room, Sleeps 12
Who says a log home in the Smoky Mountains area can’t also be elegant? Certainly not the owners of Southern Charm. Their 5-bedroom lodge is the epitome of sophistication, with Old World-style furnishings that complement the lustrous wood-planked floors, walls, and ceiling. Yet the home has plenty of mountain comforts too, including an outdoor hot tub, 2 huge decks that look out onto Mount LeConte, and a pool table.
Perched atop a one-acre private lot in the quiet Wild Briar community, Southern Charm lets you relish the serenity and stunning scenery. The main deck, which wraps around the back, one side, and front of the home, offers panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains and the surrounding woodlands. You can savor the natural beauty from the deck chairs and from the outdoor dining area. There’s a charcoal grill on the deck as well, so that you can cook as well as dine alfresco. The fresh mountain breeze is the perfect seasoning, and the singing of chickadees, wrens, and warblers provides glorious background music. Perhaps the best way to soak up nature’s grandeur is while literally soaking in the main deck’s hot tub. During the day you might see falcons or eagles soar above the mountains; at night you can point out constellations in the star-studded sky.
A wall of windows lets you admire the view from the great room as well. There’s plenty of space for everyone to hang out here. Gather around the stone-surround fireplace, hot chocolate or brandy in hand, after a day on the slopes. Stretch out on the roll-arm leather sofas to watch a movie on the flat-screen TV or to take advantage of the free WiFi. Play Monopoly or tuck into dinner at the large dining table, which seats 8 in cushioned chairs so comfortable, you’ll want to linger long after dessert has been finished.
In addition to the table, the dining area/kitchen can seat 3 more at the adjacent breakfast bar. This is also a handy space for friends and family to help the chef with meal prep. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware. The main floor also has a game room with a pool table and, for those who’d rather watch than play, plenty of seats and a flat-screen TV.
Three of Southern Charm’s 5 bedrooms are upstairs. All 3 have a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, a ceiling fan (so soothing!), and furnishings that would be right at home in a European manor. The master suite has a private bathroom with a jetted tub; after a day on the go, you’ll relish a rejuvenating soak. The 2 other bedrooms share the 2nd full bathroom.
The remaining 2 bedrooms are on the main floor, which makes them well suited for those who prefer not to deal with stairs. Like the upstairs bedrooms, these rooms are bastions of serenity, with their own flat-screen TV and ceiling fan. One bedroom has yet another king-size bed. The 5th bedroom, which features a queen-size bed, has a door that opens directly onto the deck. You can step outside for a spot of late-night stargazing or head out early in the morning to catch the sunrise without waking the others. These 2 bedrooms share the 3rd full bathroom. For added convenience, the main floor also has a half-bath—as well as a washer and dryer.
As you kick back on a deck rocker and look out at the mountains, you can easily forget that Southern Charm is just a few miles from many of the area’s most popular attractions. Dollywood, Parrot Mountain and Gardens, and the Titanic Museum, to name just a few, are less than 15 minutes away.
When you stay at Southern Charm you can relax amid the mountain breeze and songbirds as well as enjoy thrill rides, hiking, biking, go karts, and more. A vacation here really does offer something for everyone—including you. So book your stay today!
