We stayed here for 2 nights. We have 2 boys, 10 and 13. They both loved it. It is definitely up in the mountain. We enjoyed the peace and quiet away from downtown gatlinburg. It Is still close to downtown without the noise. It was great coming back to the hot tub after a hard day of hiking in the smokies. Be careful at the end of driveway, it is a bit tricky.
The cottage is located up the side of the mountain, nestled in a quiet cove far enough away from the busy streets of Gatlinburg tourists, yet close enough if needed. It is immaculately clean with a well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed having the windows open to allow the cool night air to flow through the cottage. Waking up to the birdsongs, rain showers and stream in the morning is a great way to start a relaxing day.
Our family visited during the New Year weekend & had a great time! The cabin was spacious (which is always a plus with three children) & very clean. We stayed on the go during our short stay so we didn't get to enjoy all the amenities that were offered. The owners were very helpful & a pleasure to talk to.
