No, you’re not dreaming: Damron’s Dream really is as idyllic as it appears. The recently rebuilt lodge, which sleeps sixteen people—and a pet or two as well—offers spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains from its three decks. At the same time, it’s just five minutes from the attractions of downtown Gatlinburg.

Damron’s Dreams has five bedrooms, each of which has its own full bathroom for maximum convenience. The two suites on the top floor, the suite on the main floor, and one of the two downstairs suites each have a lofty king-size bed, a 50” HDTV with premium cable, and perhaps most pampering of all, a Jacuzzi. After a day of hiking, biking, or skiing, a long, lazy soak will feel so luxurious! The fifth bedroom has a queen over queen bunk bed and its own 50” HDTV.

Speaking of the main floor’s great room, it really is great. Large windows and doors opening onto the deck let in plenty of sunshine. In winter the corner fireplace makes the room even more delightful. There’s plenty of room to sprawl out on the leather couches to watch a movie on the 50” HDTV, or you can curl up in the armchair with your tablet and take advantage of the free WiFi.

The dining area seats sixteen people. The table easily accommodates twelve, in impressively comfortable chairs. Another six people can sidle up to the adjacent breakfast bar; the kids will especially love eating there “on their own” while the grown-ups dine at the table. The breakfast bar doubles as additional kitchen counter and storage space. The kitchen itself is fully equipped with stainless-steel appliances, a full accouterment of cookware, and plenty of tableware. In addition, Damron’s Dream has an outdoor grill, so you can barbecue trout you reeled in yourself from a nearby stream—or veggies you bought from a nearby grocery store.

The great room isn’t the only area of Damron’s Dream where everyone can hang out together. Upstairs, between the top floor’s two bedrooms, is a spacious game room. When you’re not shooting pool at the handsome full-size table, you can play one of the arcade’s twenty games. There’s also a table tailor-made for playing cards or a board game. Or you can stretch out on the leather couch to watch TV or indulge in a well-deserved nap.

The lower level has an attraction of its own: a media room with a large flat-screen TV and an especially sumptuous leather couch. So comfortable is the seating, you may want to kick back in there even when you’re not watching a movie or the big game. The media room also has a wet bar complete with mini fridge and popcorn maker. If you run out of snacks during your double feature, you won’t have to head upstairs to the kitchen.

Spanning the width of Damron’s Dream, the three decks are furnished with numerous rockers so that everyone can savor the sight of falcons soaring over the Smoky Mountains, the singing of wrens and warblers, and the crisp breeze. The lower deck has an especially wonderful spot for soaking up the surrounding beauty: a roomy hot tub.

Damron’s Dream is exceptional in and of itself. Add to the lodge’s amenities its proximity to the area’s attractions, and it’s truly spectacular. Downtown Gatlinburg is just a five-minute drive away; in no more than ten minutes you can arrive at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, and the Smoky Mountains Arts & Crafts Community.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find another Smoky Mountain cabin with as much luxuries, such stunning views, and as conveniently located as Damron’s Dream—let alone one that’s pet-friendly and can sleep sixteen people. So what are you waiting for? Book your stay today… before someone else beats you to it!

Damron's Dream for the whole family

Our 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren shared this cabin for a week. It was in a perfect location to reach everything we wanted to do quickly. The Ac unit upstairs went out on Thursday evening and on Friday morning the maintenance team resolved the problem. The cabin is located on a steep grade, so there is not a yard to get out with little ones and play. We made great use of the double huge porches to solve this problem. Had a great week :)

Thank you for your review and four-star rating! We are replacing the AC unit, but were sorry to hear that negatively impacted your stay. We agree the location is absolutely perfect - 1.5 mile easy-to-drive miles from downtown, but worlds away. Come back soon!

Great cabin but had some hot water issues

This was a beautiful cabin and it was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook for a group of 7 adults.The games all worked and were lots of fun. Hot tub was nice too and very clean.The only complaint we had was that the hot water went out twice while we were there. Both times maintenance was out to fix it within 30 minutes.We would definitely stay here again! The location was great. Close to Gatlinburg but far enough away that it was quiet and peaceful.

We had a great time. Thank You

Property matched what what represented on the internet. I was impressed with the property management. The online description mentioned that there was a Wii; unfortunately when we arrived there were no games. The property manager promptly purchased several games for our three children. A great time was had by all. Location was very close to downtown Gatlinburg, unfortunately there was a little road noise; but that comes with the convenience of being close to local restaurants and attractions. We enjoyed Ober Gatlinburg and some of the various attractions in Pigeon Forge. Overall the cabin had a nice feel and a good view of the valley and mountains.

Nice stay

The house was clean and everything worked. I was satisfied with the house and location. My only negative comment is not with this particular house but the overall layout of its design. There is no way to isolate noise from the game area downstairs from the upstairs area. So if you have folks playing foosball downstairs at the same time others were having discussions or watching a movie upstairs then noise can be a problem. The open stairwell (no door) allowed for noise to travel upstairs very effectively. This would only be a problem if you have a mixed group of folks where quiet was a priority. Otherwise I loved the place.

Nice Place

This location is not secluded and not really in the mountains. It is more like a neighborhood with several houses very close to each other. The first night neighbors were outside fighting at 4 am. The next morning kids were outside playing very early, which did not bother me, but if you are looking for seclusion in the mountains this is not the place. Overall very nice place, clean, comfortable and close to everything.

Host Response (January 28, 2015):

Thank you for your 5-star review and feedback. Weren't the views amazing? Yes, as is the case with many of luxury cabin communities, neighbors are fairly close in proximity. I'm sorry to hear the neighbors were a bit rowdy during your stay... This is a very rare occurrence in this development, which is family oriented. This luxurious community features incredible views and is only 1.5 miles to the main Parkway. We hope to host you again in the near future!
