Sure, there are plenty of log cabins in and around Gatlinburg. But Blessed Beyond Measure is one of just a few dating back to the 1800s that have been carefully restored. Located in the exclusive Timberidge community, the three-story cabin boasts split-log walls, stone-surround fireplaces, and other authentic features—along with modern comforts, including an indoor jetted tub, an outdoor hot tub, stainless-steel kitchen appliances, free WiFi, and cable TV.
Perched atop a ridge and surrounded by woodland, Blessed Beyond Measure offers unrivaled privacy and quiet, despite being just ten minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Whether you’re kicking back on the porch swing, lazing in the lower deck’s hot tub, barbecuing on the main deck’s grill, or toasting marshmallows at the fire pit, you’ll feel at one with nature’s serenity. At the same time, as you listen with your family and friends to larks greeting the morning, owls hooting during the night, and mountain breezes rustling through the trees, you’ll make memories that you will all long cherish.
Inside, each of Blessed Beyond Measure’s three floors has its own full bathroom and sleeping quarters; the cabin can sleep seven people in all. The loft level has been transformed into a master suite. From its king-sized bed, you can look out at the treetops, watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, and bask in the warmth of the wood-burning fireplace. Iron chandeliers complement the vaulted ceilings, the wood beams and floor, and the rustic yet refined furnishings. Most pampering of all, the suite has a large jetted tub overlooking the woods. A long soak among its massaging waters is a blissful way to end an action-packed day… and to start a romantic evening.
The main floor’s bedroom includes its own TV and a queen-size bed, making Blessed Beyond Measure as well suited for two couples as it is for a family. Downstairs are built-in bunk beds, perfect for the kids.
The split-log walls, beamed wood ceiling, and wood-burning fireplace of the main floor’s living room hark back to earlier times. You definitely aren’t roughing it when you stay here, though. Stretch out on one of the couches and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV; curl up in the leather armchair and surf the web; enjoy après-ski drinks or a game of Pictionary by the fire. In other words, make yourselves right at home.
The dining room, like the living room, has a beamed wood ceiling, along with a wall of windows that will have you feeling as if you’re outside among the treetops. The handsome wood table seats eight, so feel free to invite friends over for dinner. The kitchen, though compact, is equipped with a full array of stainless-steel appliances, cookware, and tableware.
After dinner, head downstairs to shoot some pool and watch TV in the game room. While you’re playing, you can run a load of laundry: Blessed Beyond Measure has a washer and dryer tucked into the downstairs bathroom. How convenient is that?
Also convenient is the cabin’s location. In only ten minutes you can drive to downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Adventure, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, thrill rides, restaurants, and a tram that will carry you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. (If you’re visiting in winter, vehicles with 4-wheel drive or tire chains are strongly recommended.) Just as close is the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, an eight-mile trail of galleries, shops, and studios. You can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in fifteen minutes, and Dollywood is less than a half-hour away.
A truly special getaway begins with a truly special place to stay. Blessed Beyond Measure is that place, one that guests return to time and again. Don’t miss out on your chance to revel in its charm and comfort; book your stay today!
