When you stay at Peaceful Mountain Gem, you’ll feel blissfully removed from the everyday hubbub—but you’ll also be only a short drive from the attractions of both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It really is the best of all worlds and ideal for a fun-filled family vacation.
Perched among towering old-growth trees, Peaceful Mountain Gem looks from the outside like a log cabin in a children’s story. It’s just as delightful inside. The wood-planked walls, beamed ceiling, and stone-surround fireplace make the living room an inviting place to gather. Kick back on the leather couch to watch a movie on the flat-panel TV, nestle in an armchair to surf the web via the free WiFi, play Pictionary by the crackling fire: You’ll feel wonderfully at home.
The dining room is equally welcoming, with splendid views of the surrounding woods. You can also dine alfresco: Peaceful Mountain Gem’s deck includes an outdoor table large enough to accommodate the whole gang. On the deck chairs you and your sweetheart can savor a nightcap beneath the star-studded sky after the kids are asleep. Perhaps even more romantic is the deck’s hot tub, though a soak among its massaging jets is also a great way to start the day.
Peaceful Mountain Gem’s kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware. The open layout means you can watch TV and chat with the others while you work your culinary magic. The cabin has a grill outside as well. If you reel in trout from one of the nearby streams, cook it on the grill for a true Smoky Mountain treat.
Upstairs in the loft you’ll find an air-hockey table to keep the kids—and the adults—entertained during downtime. Part of the loft has been converted into sleeping quarters, complete with a queen-size bed and a TV. There’s even a full bathroom up here. The kids will love making the loft their domain; after all, who wouldn’t want to have an air-hockey table just steps from their bed?
Located on the main floor, the primary suite is special in its own right. The large room includes a sumptuous king-size bed and a private bathroom with its own jetted tub. No matter how weary your muscles are after a day on the go, a leisurely soak will have them (and you) rarin’ to go again.
If you have additional guests, they can sleep in the living room; the sofa opens into a bed for 2, enabling Peaceful Mountain Cabin to sleep 6 people in all. Other amenities include a washer and a dryer, cable TV, and a DVD player. When you arrive you’ll find the beds made up, plenty of clean towels for both bathrooms, and extra bedding ready and waiting—no need to bring your own linens.
The serene, private setting is one of Peaceful Mountain Gem’s greatest assets. At the same time, you can easily reach the area’s many attractions. Within a half-hour’s drive are the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, an 8-mile trail of more than 120 shops, galleries, and studios, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Equally close are Dollywood and Parrot Mountain and Gardens in Pigeon Forge, as well as the Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to dinner theaters, the Titanic Museum, go-kart tracks, and more. Travel the same amount of time in the opposite direction and you’ll be in downtown Gatlinburg, whose attractions include the Guinness World Records Experience, thrill rides, distilleries, and a tram that carries you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area.
Peaceful Mountain Gem really is a gem of a Smoky Mountain cabin. Don’t let this jewel get away: Book your stay today, and start planning a vacation you’ll long remember.
