Versatility is the watchword of this charming, two-story house with hot tub, Jacuzzi, game room, decks, and fireplace. Separate entrances on each floor of Mountain High View mean self-contained privacy for your large group!
The upper story is the heart of Mountain High View, with soaring ceilings, huge windows, and an inviting interior that may convince you to forego the attractions of Gatlinburg for just one or two nights in favor of family time at home. You will make wonderful new memories here!
The design is open-plan, so the kitchen and dining area segues into the living space seamlessly, keeping everyone together even when part of your group is watching a show on TV while others whip up a tasty snack in the fully appointed kitchen. In addition to the long, beautiful wood dining table for six, a handy bistro table sits bathed in sunlight in one corner of the room, just right for morning coffee, quick games of gin rummy, and uploading vacation pics onto laptops and tablets. (You have free WiFi at Mountain High View.) You will love this little niche, with its breathtaking views in multiple directions.
The living area is welcoming and spacious, with a sofa that unfolds into a queen-sized bed for two, three huge recliners just made for impromptu napping, a TV with cable, DVD player, and VCR, and a gas fireplace situated so that everyone in the room can enjoy its warmth and light. Soft carpeting encourages the kids to sprawl on the floor with their toys, while the grown-ups enjoy a frothy blender drink and unwind after a busy day in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Anakeesta, or downtown Gatlinburg.
The kitchen at Mountain High View is terrific for large groups. You'll find all the cookware, dishes, utensils, and gadgets you could wish for, plus full-sized appliances and countertop time-savers from a coffeemaker to a microwave, toaster, and blender. Even if you're planning to sample Gatlinburg's fine restaurants while on vacation, this kitchen makes it easy for you to toss a few groceries into the fridge and always have drinks and snacks handy, not to mention plates and silverware for takeout and leftovers.
Opening out from the main living and dining area is the beautiful wraparound wooden deck, overhung with trees and offering panoramic views of hillsides, meadows, and sky. There's a hot tub out here that easily accommodates four people, offering total privacy in the crisp, open air of this mountain paradise. End your evening with a glass of wine and one of the best views you'll ever find, all in bubbly comfort!
The upper storey includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite is heavenly, featuring a king-sized bed, heart-shaped Jacuzzi built for 2, private TV, and en-suite bathroom. After days filled with people and activity, you will love returning to this cozy, private space! With plenty of storage and a charming country decor, the master bedroom is simply perfect!
For getting up and out of the house quickly in the morning, the master bath is ideal. Here you'll find a walk-in shower and plenty of storage space for your toiletries. All towel sets and sheets are provided for every bed and bath at Mountain High View (including the sleeper sofa in the living room), so you can pack light and rest assured that everyone in the group can get showered and changed in comfort each day.
The second bedroom on the upper floor is dreamy as well. A queen-sized bed takes pride of place here, along with a TV, a bureau for stashing your vacation clothes, and access to the second full bathroom, which includes a shower/tub combo. Cheery country decoration makes this room snug and pretty!
The first floor of Mountain High View is a mecca for game lovers of all ages. The huge rec room here includes a pool table, foosball, darts, card table, and a big TV. Sink onto the comfy suede sofa and enjoy a real conversation, uninterrupted by anything except the laughter of your loved ones as they indulge in old-fashioned family games. The game room also includes a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffeemaker, so you don't have to run upstairs every time the gang needs refreshments!
The third bedroom and bathroom are also on the first floor. The bedroom is a wood-paneled den just right for sleeping late! Its double bed is very comfy, and this room has easy access to the full bathroom, which offers a shower/tub combo. And because the first floor has its own exterior entry, you can treat this floor as a self-contained apartment -- just right for teenagers, another couple traveling with you, or grandparents! A wraparound deck with patio furniture and incomparable views surrounds this floor. Paradise!
Mountain High View is close to the National Park and all the attractions of downtown Gatlinburg, yet it seems wonderfully remote and private. You will love staying here, discovering the beauty waiting just beyond the decks, and savoring the fresh mountain air. Make this lovely house your Gatlinburg go-to for memorable vacations in every season!
