Favored by Fortune is aptly named. As you gaze out from the three-bedroom log cabin toward the Great Smoky Mountains you’ll feel privileged to be surrounded by such natural splendor. But the spectacular setting isn't only one reason Favored by Fortune is such a glorious place to make your home away from home. The spacious lodge is beautifully furnished and offers such luxuries as an outdoor hot tub, an indoor jetted tub, air hockey, and in the summer, free access to a nearby swimming pool.
Favored by Fortune has a bathroom and a bedroom on each of its three floors. The spacious primary suite, which makes up the entire loft level, is nothing short of stunning. Along with a king-size bed and a TV, it has a sitting area and a desk, ideal for catching up on emails or surfing the web via the free WiFi to plan your next day’s adventures. And wait till you see the view you’ll wake up to, courtesy of the panoramic windows! The en-suite bathroom boasts a jetted tub, which you’ll especially appreciate when you return from a day of hiking, skiing, or white water rafting.
The other two bedrooms each have a queen-size bed, a TV, and like the rest of the cabin, lustrous wood-planked walls, floors, and ceilings. If you have additional guests, the daybed in the downstairs game room includes a trundle bed, so that two more people can sleep there; Favored by Fortune can accommodate eight guests in all. And given that the game room has an air-hockey table, its own TV, and a kitchenette complete with mini fridge, sleeping there is far from a hardship!
While the game room has its own dining area, a larger dining table is on the main floor. Up to six people can sit here, in chairs so comfortably padded you’ll want to linger long after dessert is over. The main floor also has the advantage of oversize windows that enable you to savor the beauty of the mountains and woodlands while you dine or kick back in the living area. The living area’s sofa and armchairs are as comfy as they are elegant—perfect for watching a movie on the flat-panel TV, and playing charades.
Along with three floors, Favored by Fortune has three decks that span the width of the cabin. There’s plenty of seating for savoring the fresh mountain breeze and the sight of falcons and eagles soaring through the seemingly endless skies. You can dine at the deck’s patio table too, as well as cook alfresco on the charcoal grill. Mmm, barbecue!
The hot tub on the lower deck, however, might become your favorite spot for soaking up the sights and sounds of the Smoky Mountains. It’s especially magical at night, as crickets and owls serenade you in the moonlight.
Favored by Fortune is so restful, you may find it tough to pry yourself away. But you’ll definitely want to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park while you’re here—and it’s only minutes away. There you can hike among waterfalls, fish for trout (perfect for cooking on the grill!), go biking or horseback riding… why you could easily spend every day exploring the park! But then you’d be missing out on the attractions and amusements of downtown Gatlinburg (just a ten-minute drive away!), golf, Dollywood, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area, and in the summer, the free community swimming pool.
When you stay here, you really will feel favored by fortune. Go ahead, book your stay today; we’re looking forward to seeing you!
