With four en-suite bedrooms, Stand in Awe can accommodate four couples or two families as comfortably as it can a family of eight. Its convenient location (just a mile from Bent Creek Golf Course), spectacular mountain views, and numerous amenities also make it a fabulous home away from home.
Stand in Awe is located in Gatlinburg’s private Cobbly Nob neighborhood, itself set within a 1,-acre resort. In the summer you’ll have free access to its two swimming areas, and year-round you can walk or bike along its trails. From the cabin’s two large decks you can admire the Great Smoky Mountains and the surrounding woodlands. Several sitting areas, furnished with chairs and tables, let you revel in the crisp breeze rustling through the trees and the sight of falcons soaring over the mountains. One of the decks has a swing—fun for the kids during the day, delightfully romantic for adults at night. And there’s a luxurious hot tub too. A long soak among its massaging jets of water is the perfect end to an action-packed day.
The large screened-in porch, furnished with comfortable seating and a patio table, is another prime spot for admiring the view. The screens will keep uninvited buzzing guests out, and the ceiling fan makes the room a refreshing retreat even in midsummer.
The picture windows of the living room and the dining room also face the Smoky Mountains, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside. Furnished with plush couches, armchairs, and a recliner sure to be the most sought-after seat in the house, the living room is spacious enough to accommodate the whole gang. The wood-burning fireplace will bathe the room in a golden warmth. There’s a large flat-screen TV here, and a second one in the downstairs game room. Another inviting hangout spot, the game room also boasts a pool table, a game table (ideal for poker and Parcheesi alike), and a wet bar with a microwave. If you work up a thirst shooting pool or playing cards, you won’t have to head upstairs to the kitchen for a beverage.
Speaking of the kitchen, it’s outfitted with sparkling stainless-steel appliances, gleaming countertops, and plenty of cookware, tableware, and elbow room. Preparing meals here is a pleasure. So is eating them at the dining table, which seats eight, or at the adjacent breakfast bar, which seats four. Prefer to cook alfresco? One of the decks has a large grill.
Each of the four spacious suites has its own bathroom, a TV, plenty of storage, and elegant yet rustic furnishings. Three bedrooms include a king-size bed. The fourth bedroom has a nearly as luxurious queen, plus a desk in case you need to catch up on work during your stay (don’t worry; Stand in Awe has free WiFi).
Stand in Awe’s other amenities include a washer and dryer, a CD/tape player, and parking for four vehicles on its paved driveway. And then there’s the fabulous location. The award-winning Bent Creek Golf Course, designed by the Golf champion Gary Player, is at the foot of the resort in which Stand in Awe resides.
The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a wonderland of wildlife, wildflowers, and waterfalls, is only fifteen minutes away. Both Rocky Top Sports World and the Smoky Mountains Arts & Crafts Community, an eight-mile trail of more than galleries, shops, and studios, are less than twenty minutes away. And just a few minutes further is downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Adventure, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, thrill rides, arcades, restaurants galore, and a tram that will carry you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area.
Many of the visitors who stayed at Stand in Awe return to the cabin year after year; it’s that special. Book your stay today, and experience its pleasures yourself.
