Just rebuilt after the wildfires that damaged Gatlinburg in 2016, Hello Smokys all but sparkles, from the new flat-screen TVs to the also-new gleaming kitchen appliances. What isn’t new, however, are the spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains, the wealth of amenities, and the quiet yet convenient location, less than 15 minutes from downtown.
A 2-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom pet-friendly home, Hello Smokys sits on a mountain ridge. When you step out onto either of its 2 rear decks, you’ll feel as if you’re looking over your private kingdom. The lower deck has a bistro table where you can gaze at the majestic mountains while sipping coffee in the morning or cocktails at dusk. Even better, you can revel in the view while luxuriating in the deck’s hot tub. Of course, a soak is just as magical at night, in the silvery shimmer of the moonlight.
The upper deck includes a gas grill and a dining table, so that you can cook and eat amid the crisp breezes as falcons soar over the mountains and warblers serenade. Even a meal of takeaway pizza will seem like a feast when savored out here.
You can step out onto a deck or a balcony from each of the 2 en-suite bedrooms. Waking up to the sight of the Smokies is an ideal way to start your day. Of course, given how sumptuous the king-size beds are, you might want to linger under the covers for quite some time—and why not? You’re on vacation, after all! In addition to a king-size bed, each bedroom has a flat-screen TV with cable and a private bathroom, making Hello Smokys as well suited for 2 couples as it is for a family. Because the bedrooms are on different floors, you’ll enjoy maximum privacy. If you have additional guests, they can sleep on one of the couches, which opens into a queen-size bed, enabling the house to sleep up to 6 people—and as many as 3 pets.
The great room makes up most of Hello Smokys’ upper level. Open and spacious, it features a wall of oversize windows so that no matter where you are in the room, you can admire the mountains. The living area includes a stacked-stone fireplace perfect for gathering around after a day of skiing or snowshoeing, plus a large flat-screen TV.
The great room’s dining table seats 6. There’s also a breakfast bar with 2 stools, where you can set up your laptop and surf the web via the free WiFi while grabbing a snack. The breakfast bar doubles as additional kitchen counter space—and once you see Hello Smokys’ beautiful kitchen, complete with sparkling stainless-steel appliances, you’re sure to want to cook at least some of your meals here.
Downstairs is a den and game room that is sure to be especially popular with the kids. The sitting area features plenty of comfortable seating and a large flat-screen TV, while the game area offers your choice of Skee-Ball, tabletop shuffleboard, and an arcade table. Other amenities of Hello Smokys include a half-bath, a washer and a dryer, and a flat, paved driveway with room for several vehicles. What’s more, you’ll have free access to 3 pool areas, each of which includes other amusements such as foosball, ping pong, and billiards.
And then there’s the fabulous location. Though Hello Smokys feels far removed from the everyday hustle and bustle, it’s less than 15 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Adventure, the Anakeesta outdoor entertainment complex, mini golf, shops, restaurants, distilleries, and more. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just as close, as is Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. In less than 20 minutes you can drive to the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, and Dollywood is less than a half-hour away.
Hello Smokys has everything you need to make your dream vacation a reality. Book your stay today—before someone else beats you to it!
