Can’t decide whether to stay close to the Smoky Mountains or to downtown Gatlinburg? Sky Villa, a pet-friendly three-bedroom cabin, is only minutes from both. And the view from its spacious rear deck is reason enough to stay here: lush woodlands and majestic mountains during the day, a seemingly endless canopy of star-studded sky at night.
Perched on a ridge among towering trees, Sky Villa is a blissfully serene getaway. The interior is just as restful as the bucolic setting. The living room’s oversized picture windows allow you to gaze out at the Smokies even as you kick back on one of the supple leather couches. When you’re not admiring the view, you can watch your favorite cable-TV programs, surf the web via the free WiFi, or enjoy an après-ski drink by the crackling warmth of the wood-burning fireplace. Or perhaps you’d rather shoot pool at the full-size billiard table or sprawl out on the plush carpet and play Legos with the kids.
Sky Villa is just a short drive to scores of restaurants specializing in everything from steak to Cajun food to pizza. But when you’d rather eat in, you can gather around the cabin’s dining table, which seats six, for a home-cooked meal. Outfitted with stainless-steel appliances, generous granite counter space, and plenty of cookware and tableware, the kitchen has just about everything you need, whether you’re whipping up pancakes for breakfast or hosting a Thanksgiving feast. All you have to bring are food and an appetite.
All three bedrooms are furnished in the same inviting, comfortable fashion as the rest of Sky Villa. The master bedroom has a king-size bed; the other two have queen-size beds. Each bedroom has a TV, ample storage, and a ceiling fan whose gentle breeze will help lull you to sleep. (Prefer central air-conditioning on hot summer nights? The cabin has that too!)
Both bathrooms include a combination shower/tub, so you can wake yourself up with a brisk shower in the morning, then relax with a long, hot bath at night. We’ll provide all the towels you could possibly want—no need to bring your own. In fact, because Sky Villa has its own washer and dryer, you can pack especially light… and even return home with clean clothing for a change.
When you’re not lazing on the deck listening to larks and sparrows during the day and owls and crickets at night, you’ll find plenty to see and do close by. In less than 15 minutes you can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; once there, you can explore its waterfalls, wildlife, and wildflowers on foot, on bike, on horseback, or by car. Even closer is Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. In winter it offers skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing, and year-round it features ice-skating, thrill rides, and a wildlife exhibit. Just a few minutes further is downtown Gatlinburg, home to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Guinness World Records Adventure, mini golf, arcades, distilleries, shops, and more. And less than a half-hour from Sky Villa is the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, an 8-mile trail of more than 120 shops, studios, and galleries offering everything from candles to quilts, watercolors to woodcarvings.
During your stay at Sky Villa you can do it all: hike, ski, fish, bike, ride mountain coasters, play mini golf… and of course, simply relax with family and friends amid nature’s splendor. Make your reservation today, and then get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime.
