To Have and to Hold might be one of the most conveniently located cabins in the Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg area. The attractions of both towns are within 20 minutes of the log cabin, which sleeps 6 people—and a pet or 2 as well. Dollywood, the Titanic Museum, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg Golf Course, the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, the Guinness World Records Adventure, dinner theaters, arcades, and more… all are just a quick drive away.
Location is only one reason you’ll love staying at To Have and to Hold, however. The cabin itself is a delight. As soon as you pull into its flat paved driveway, you’ll be charmed. Surrounded by trees, with a covered front porch and rear deck, the home looks like something out of a picture book. In addition to wooden chairs from which you can admire the sun-dappled leaves and the singing of larks and warblers, the rear deck has a roomy hot tub. A soak out here is especially enchanting at night, in the silvery glow of the moon, accompanied by the chirping of crickets and the hooting of owls.
The interior of To Have and to Hold is just as enticing. The lustrous wood-planked walls, floor, and cathedral ceiling, combined with the log-style banister and the stone-surround gas fireplace, make the great room a welcoming space. Kick back on the leather sofa (which can convert into a bed for 2) and watch a movie on the 42” plasma HDTV with satellite channels and a DVD player, read, play with the kids… or even sneak in a well-deserved nap.
The loft’s game room is another space that invites you to relax and enjoy. The centerpiece is a full-size pool table, but the room also includes a 26” HDTV with a PlayStation 2. What’s more, the futon opens into a bed for 2. If you’re vacationing with the kids, they’ll love making this their bedroom.
The master bedroom has its own 27” TV. That’s in addition to a king-size bed for sprawling out on and a private jetted tub. Especially after a day of hiking, skiing, or white-water rafting, you’ll look forward to luxuriating among its massaging jets of water—pure bliss. The master bedroom has its own bathroom, with a shower and, for added convenience, a washer and dryer. The cabin has a 2nd full bathroom as well.
To Have and to Hold’s prime location means you have a fabulous assortment of restaurants nearby. But sometimes eating in is more relaxing (and more budget-friendly). The log-style dining table seats 4, and the kitchen is fully equipped with stainless-steel appliances, gadgets, cookware, and tableware. Whether you’re preparing a Thanksgiving feast or simply reheating leftovers from the previous night’s restaurant meal, you’ll find all the gear you need. There’s even a dishwasher, because nobody wants to scrub plates while on vacation. You’ll also find a charcoal grill right off the front porch. If you reel in trout or bass from one of the nearby streams, it will taste even better grilled outdoors in the fresh mountain air.
Whether you spend your days horseback riding along the waterfalls and wildflowers of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, sampling the rides of Dollywood, hitting the slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, or shopping for paintings and pottery in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, you’ll love returning to the serenity of To Have and to Hold afterward. If you want to spend more of your time seeing the sights and reveling in nature’s glory and less time traveling from one place to another, To Have and to Hold is the Smoky Mountain cabin for you. Book your stay today—you definitely won’t regret it.
