Staying in a log cabin doesn’t have to mean roughing it. Mountain Elegance is proof. This impeccably furnished two-bedroom cabin offers a game room with a pool table and two flat-panel TVs, a home theater with another ” flat-panel smart TV, an outdoor hot tub, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and two king-size beds, all in a wooded setting just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg.
The luxury begins in the lower level, where you’ll find the game room and the media room. Home to the full-size billiard table, the game room is tastefully decorated, complete with rich wood furniture and luxurious leather seating. Even if shooting pool isn’t your thing, you’ll love sprawling out on the sectional and watching one of the three—yes, three!—flat-screen TVs in the room. If you need to stretch your legs, you can open the French doors and take in the crisp mountain breeze from the lower deck.
The media room is furnished in equally handsome style, with a ” flat-panel smart TV with Blu-ray player on which to watch movies or your favorite cable shows. One of the media room’s sofas and the sofa in the game room convert into beds for two, so that four people can sleep on the lower level and eight people in all at Mountain Elegance. There’s a full bathroom on the floor as well; with one bathroom on each of the three floors, there won’t be any queues to get washed up in the morning!
Up one level is the main floor, and the luxury continues. With its lustrous wood floor, walls, and cathedral ceiling, the open living room/dining area/kitchen is welcoming any time of year. Sunlight streams in from the soaring windows and the living room’s comfortable furniture invite you to sink back and relax. In winter you’ll love pulling up an armchair to the gas fireplace—it’s such a cozy spot to read or surf the web. Of course there’s a flat-screen TV in the living room too; in fact, Mountain Elegance has 7 TVs and 4 DVD players, plus the Blu-ray player—no bickering about what to watch!
If you weren’t planning to do any cooking during your stay, once you see the gorgeous kitchen you might change your mind. Dark wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, stone backsplash, and all the cookware and tableware you could need: It’s enough to delight the fussiest (or most reluctant) chef.
The main floor’s deck includes a truly pampering amenity: a hot tub. The steamy jets of water are relaxing in and of themselves, but when you pair them with the mountain breeze rustling through the trees and the singing of wrens during the day and whip-poor-wills at night… sheer bliss!
One of the two primary bedrooms is on the main floor; the other makes up Mountain Elegance’s top floor. Each offers a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, and plenty of storage. Two couples can stay at Mountain Elegance as comfortably as a family.
When you visit in the summer, you can take advantage of one more perk. Because Mountain Elegance is part of the Black Bear Falls Log Home Community, you have free access to its heated swimming pools, one for kids and one for adults.
The cabin’s prime location just might be the best perk of all. In less than minutes you can be in downtown Gatlinburg, where you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to restaurants and entertainment. You’ll also be near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its hiking trails, historic cabins, waterfalls, and wildlife ranging from black bears to elk. Ski trails, golf courses, the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, Dollywood, and more are also mere minutes away.
Wherever the day takes you, you’ll love returning to Mountain Elegance at the end of it. So make your reservation today… before someone else beats you to it!
