You could spend much of your stay at Twilight Ridge kicking back on the porch swing or rocking chairs, listening to the breeze rustling through the trees and admiring the mountain views. There’s even a dining table set up so that you can savor a meal and the sunset simultaneously. The hot tub on the rear deck offers an especially fabulous vantage point: Not only can you look out at Mount LeConte, but you can do so while being massaged by jets of steamy water! Life doesn’t get much better than this.
You can ooh and ahh at the towering trees and star-studded skies while indoors as well, thanks to the large windows and double-height ceiling of the living area. There’s even a log-frame rocking chair in the living room, so you can replicate the laid-back ease of sitting on the porch even while you watch a movie on the flat-panel TV with DVD player. Or stretch out on the handsome leather sofa with your tablet as you surf the web by the golden glow of the gas fireplace, which will give the cabin the cozy ambience of a classic ski chalet. (And given that Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area is only 20 minutes away, Twilight Ridge actually can qualify for ski-chalet status!)
Twilight Ridge’s kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’d expect from a home away from home—maybe even more. In addition, there’s a charcoal grill outside; if you reel in some trout from one of the nearby streams, grill it for a true Smoky Mountain feast. Sure, there are plenty of restaurants you can drive to in just a few minutes, but after spending the day hiking or biking in the national park, skiing or ice-skating at Ober Gatlinburg, or exploring every inch of Dollywood, you might prefer a laid-back dinner at the cabin. If you don’t want to dine on the porch, settle in at the indoor dining table, which seats 4 people comfortably (no knocking knees or bumping elbows!).
The best part about eating in—beside the fact that you can enjoy that extra glass of wine without worrying about whose turn it is to drive—is that after dinner you can head directly upstairs to your private game room. Shoot some pool at the full-size billiard table or challenge each other to a game of ping pong. If hoops are more your speed, you’ll love the double shootout basketball game. Between games sit back on the futon and watch TV. And because the futon opens into a bed for 2, the game room can double as a 2nd bedroom. If you’re vacationing with the kids, we’re sure they’ll love making this room their own!
The “proper” bedroom is on the main floor, and it’s inviting enough to serve as a honeymoon suite. There’s a king-size bed, of course, and a flat-panel TV, plus bedside lamps so that one of you can stay up reading while the other falls asleep. The en-suite bathroom includes a jetted tub, perfect for soothing your tired muscles… or for getting you in the mood for romance!
See what we mean about Twilight Ridge being so packed with amenities, you might never want to leave? So go ahead and book your stay today, then get ready for what might be your best vacation yet.

The cabin is in a good location and is nicely decorated, it has everything you need to enjoy your stay. However, the bathroom is very awkward. The shower was kind of rigged together. It was hard to keep the shower curtins together and we kept getting water all over even when trying hard not to. There was mold in the shower, a lot of mold. There was even mold on the plastic shower curtains that can easily be replaced. The back door to the hot tub was sticking so bad that you felt like you would break the door everytime you opened it. We were not given the lock code or instructions on how to unlock the hot tub. I had to call the after hours number and the guy I spoke too gave me the code. I still couldn't get it open. I gave up and called again in the morning and she told me you had to push it closed to open it (mostly my fault for not thinking of that the first time) but that could have been avoided with directions. Over all a great stay. I will still rent from JMH again, the customer service is always good so no problem there. I just won't be renting Twilight Ridge again.Would recommend to others? No
Cozy getaway in the mountains
We enjoyed staying here very much. Cabin was small but cozy. We enjoyed the hot tub even though the view was concealed by clouds most of the time. Would have liked for the bathtub to be a little bit cleaner.Would recommend to others? Yes
We really enjoyed our stay at Twilight Ridge, once we were able to access our cabin. After being unable to enter the cabin with the pin number we were given, we were sent to another, smaller cabin for the night. After traveling all day and being unable to enter the cabin we had chosen, which was no fault of ours - it was highly frustrating to drive to a less desirable cabin for the first night and then have to move back to our cabin the following day - which wasn\'t ready until after lunch. We received no compensation for this inconvenience. Other than the initial frustrations, we were very pleased over all with our cabin. There were minor things that needed repair - the toilet lid was broken, multiple tiles on the bathroom floor were loose, and our matress (especially for my pregnant wife) needed replaced. We did enjoy the hot tub in the evenings and the full kitchen was great for storing left overs from all the wonderful restaurants and the food we brought for hiking. Overall, we would recommend, but hope you have a better first night than we did!Would recommend to others? Yes
