Sparkling Waters, 1 Bedroom, Hot Tub, Arcade, On The Creek, Sleeps 6
Gatlinburg - Smoky Mountains
A fun family vacation needs a home base that’s fun as well. In fact, there’s so much within Sparkling Waters to keep everyone happily amused, you might not even want to leave the cabin to explore the attractions and entertainment just minutes away!
The loft level of Sparkling Waters is devoted to fun and games. A game room makes up most of the floor. When you’re not shooting pool here, you can challenge one another to air hockey or play one of the 60-plus classic games loaded on the arcade table. If you need a break between matches, kick back on the futon and watch a movie on the 40” HDTV with Blu-ray player. The futon, by the way, opens into a queen-size bed, in effect making the game room a 2nd bedroom. The kids will definitely be delighted to claim this room as theirs!
For more low-key entertainment, head out to one of Sparkling Waters’ 2 back decks, both of which span the width of the log cabin. Sit down and listen to the gentle babbling of the creek below while the crisp mountain breeze whispers through the dense trees. Wrens and warblers will trill during the day; whip-poor-wills and owls will serenade you at night. It’s simply magical!
You can soak up the sights and sounds while literally soaking, in the upper deck’s hot tub. It’s a refreshing way to start your day and a blissfully relaxing way to end it. If you prefer to do your soaking indoors, the loft’s bathroom has a jetted tub of its own—a red heart-shape one perfect for getting you in the mood for romance!
Downstairs on the main floor, comfort and ease is the theme. The living area’s plush sofas are so inviting, once you sink into them you may never want to get back up! Luckily there’s a 50” HDTV with Blu-ray player to keep you entertained while you laze. It’s mounted on the wall above the stone-surround electric fireplace, whose golden glow will accentuate the luster of the wood-planked walls and ceiling. The sunlight pouring in through the many windows of the double-height walls will have the same luminous effect.
When you’re at home it can be difficult to corral everyone together for family meals. Now that you’re on vacation, though, make the most of the opportunity by gathering around the spacious picnic-style table in the dining area. Six people can sit without bumping elbows or knees, and after the plates are cleared there’s more than enough room to set up the Monopoly or Scrabble board. The kitchen has all the appliances, gadgets, cookware, and tableware you’ll need to whip up and serve fabulous meals. There’s even a dishwasher (no arguments over whose turn it is to clean up!). For maximum convenience Sparkling Waters has a washer and dryer too.
Also on the main floor is the en-suite bedroom. While the decor is beautifully rustic—wood furnishings, beamed ceilings—the amenities are 5-star all the way: a lofty king-size bed, a 39” HDTV with Blu-ray player, a ceiling fan, a private bathroom, and windows looking out onto the woodlands. Have additional guests staying over? One of the living area’s sofas, like the game room’s futon, opens into a bed for 2, so that the cabin can sleep 6 people in all.
There’s one more amenity we didn’t mention: Sparkling Waters’ location. The cabin is just minutes from all the best that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have to offer. You can drive to Dollywood, for instance, in 15 minutes. Ditto the restaurants and attractions of downtown Gatlinburg, which range from an aquarium to mini golf to the Guinness World Records Museum. Also close by are the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, and the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop.
It’s a cliché, but in this case it’s true: Sparkling Waters really does offer something for everyone. That’s why you should reserve your stay today, before someone else beats you to it!
