Mountain Dreams really is a dream come true for anyone in search of a Gatlinburg getaway that can accommodate up to eleven people. The log home includes four bedrooms spread out over three floors, plus luxuries including an outdoor hot tub, an indoor jetted tub, a pool table, and an arcade.
The great room, which makes up much of Mountain Dreams’ main floor, is just as welcoming and comfortable as you’d want a Smoky Mountain cabin to be. Amid lustrous knotty-pine walls, a cathedral ceiling, and a stone-surround gas fireplace are plump sofas that invite you to settle back to watch a movie on the flat-panel TV, play charades, or catch up with family and friends.
Because Mountain Dreams is less than ten minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, you’ll have plenty of restaurants just beyond your doorstep. Once you see the open, spacious kitchen, you might opt to eat in instead. Its gleaming granite countertops and shining stainless-steel appliances are sure to inspire you to new culinary heights. There’s an electric grill outdoors as well; if you reel in some trout from one of the nearby streams, you can grill it for a true Smoky Mountain feast. With a table that seats six and a breakfast bar that accommodates five, the dining area can host the entire crowd.
After dinner, you can head upstairs or downstairs to unwind. Upstairs is the game room: Shoot pool at the full-size billiard table, try your hand at the arcade, sit down to play checkers or chess at the game table, watch TV, or just hang out with family and friends—isn’t that what a vacation is all about? Downstairs is the den, with a leather sectional sofa that provides a front-row seat for watching a movie or a ball game on the oversize flat-screen TV with cable.
Mountain Dreams’ covered decks, which look out onto gorgeous wooded vistas, are also great places for kicking back. Wrens and warblers during the day and whip-poor-wills and owls at night add to the rustic ambiance. There’s room for the whole gang to savor the fresh mountain air, with the porch swing, the Adirondack chairs, and—our favorite—the lower deck’s hot tub as idyllic resting spots.
Of Mountain Dreams’ four bedrooms, two can be considered master suites. One is located upstairs, the other on the main floor, and both include a king-size bed, a TV, a ceiling fan, and a private bathroom. The main floor’s en-suite bathroom even has a sumptuous jetted tub—just the thing for rejuvenating your weary muscles after an action-packed day and putting you in a relaxed (and even romantic) frame of mind.
The remaining two bedrooms are downstairs both having their own flat-screen TVs. One includes a full-size bed; the other, with twin-over-full bunk beds, can sleep three. These bedrooms share a large bathroom. If you have additional guests, you can convert one of the great room’s sofas into another bed for two.
When you stay at Mountain Dreams in the summer, there’s a bonus feature: Because the house is within the 65-acre Mountain Shadows Resort, you’ll have free access to its swimming pool and patio area.
Mountain Dreams is also within the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop, an eight-mile trail of more than 120 galleries, studios, and shops. What’s more, in just ten minutes you can drive to the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, home to waterfalls, hiking trails, historic cabins, and some of the highest ridges of the Appalachian range. Equally close is downtown Gatlinburg, whose attractions include Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Guinness World Records Adventure, mini golf, thrill rides, and more. Even the attractions of Pigeon Forge, including Dollywood, are only a short drive away.
