The view of the Great Smoky Mountains from High Cotton is so glorious, you’re going to want to spend as much time outdoors savoring it as possible. Happily, the three-bedroom cabin has a large wraparound porch that allows you to do just that. Beneath the covered porch, you can kick back on rockers while larks and wrens put on a concert. You can dine alfresco too, either in the shade of the porch or out on the open patio: The cabin has two picnic tables. There’s also a charcoal grill alongside the patio so that you can cook as well as eat outdoors amid the fresh breeze. And perhaps best of all, the porch includes a spacious hot tub. A soak among its massaging jets of water is especially pampering after a day on the go.
You can also relish the view of the mountains and the trees from inside High Cotton. The great room features a bevy of picture windows looking out toward the Smokies. Even as you stretch out on one of the leather sofas to watch TV or gather by the fireplace to enjoy après-ski drinks, you’ll almost feel as if you’re outdoors.
The same is true as you sit down for a meal at the great room’s dining table, which easily seats six people; if you have guests, four people can belly up to the adjacent breakfast bar. The breakfast bar doubles as additional kitchen counter space, and because of the room’s open layout, you’ll have no shortage of helpers to assist with meal prep: You can even watch TV from there—if you can look away from the mountain vista, that is. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware; whether you’re dishing up pancakes for breakfast or hosting a holiday feast, you’ll find all the gear you need. There’s even a dishwasher, because nobody wants to scrub plates while on vacation.
Each of High Cotton’s three bedrooms includes a comfortable queen-size bed, a TV, and plenty of storage. Between the restful furnishings and the serenading of the whip-poor-wills in the surrounding woodlands, you’re sure to enjoy a fabulous night’s sleep. One of the bedrooms has its own private bathroom; the other two bedrooms share the second bathroom. You’ll arrive to find the beds impeccably made up and plenty of clean towels in the bathrooms, so that’s one less thing you have to worry about.
High Cotton’s other amenities include free WiFi, cable TV, CD and DVD players, and a washer and dryer. Not only can you pack light, but you can even return home with clean clothes in your luggage for a change!
