If it’s stunning mountain views you want, Picture Perfect is for you. That’s not the only reason you’ll love staying here, however. The log cabin, which sleeps 6 people, is located in a resort that is just minutes from the area’s most popular attractions— and that has an outdoor swimming pool for use in the summer. What’s more, the cabin has amenities of its own, including a hot tub, a pool table, and free WiFi.
First, let’s talk about the views that give Picture Perfect its name. The cabin looks out onto the Great Smoky Mountains, including Mount LeConte. The 2 large decks offer panoramic views; so does the great room, thanks to a double-height wall of windows. Perhaps the best way to revel in the glorious scenery is while soaking in the upper deck’s hot tub. Luxuriate in the steamy bubbles, watch falcons and eagles soar above the mountains, listen to larks and thrushes sing in the sun-dappled trees: Relaxation is practically guaranteed.
Picture Perfect offers plenty of relaxation inside as well. The living area of the great room, for instance, is open and bright, with gleaming wood-planked walls and floors, a sofa that invites you to stretch out, and a recliner tailor-made for sinking into with a good book. In winter the stacked-stone fireplace will make space feel even cozier, whether you’re watching a movie on the large flat-screen TV or playing Uno with the kids.
Speaking of playing, wait till you see the upstairs game room. Making up most of the loft, it features both a pool table and a foosball game, and that’s in addition to a pub table where you can play cards and another large flat-screen TV. The game room can also double as a bedroom, courtesy of the queen-size sofa bed. And there are plenty of reasons you might want to sleep up here: Not only is it pretty cool to have football in your bedroom, but the upstairs bathroom has a jetted tub as well. Its massaging waters will feel especially rejuvenating after a day of fishing, golfing, hiking, or white-water rafting… or shopping in the nearby outlet mall, for that matter.
The 2nd bathroom is on the main floor, along with the master bedroom. Like the rest of Picture Perfect, the bedroom is devoted to R & R. The log-style furniture and beamed ceiling are a cabin classic, but the king-size bed and the large flat-screen TV are worthy of a luxury hotel. If you have additional guests, the great room’s sofa, like that in the game room, opens into a bed for 2.
The main floor includes a dining area that seats 4—in full view of the mountains, of course—and a fully equipped kitchen. Even if you’re planning to dine in the many nearby restaurants (American, Mexican, Italian…), once you see Picture Perfect’s kitchen, you’re sure to want to eat at least a few meals in. From the stainless-steel appliances to the granite counters to the bounty of cookware and tableware, you’ll find everything you need. There’s a charcoal grill outside too, so that you can enjoy a Smoky Mountain barbecue.
Picture Perfect is located in the Starr Crest Resort, which features a playground for the kids and, in the summer, an outdoor swimming pool and patio everyone will love. Likewise, everyone will love how close the resort is to the area attractions. Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to the Titanic Museum, Dixie Stampede, NASCAR SpeedPark, the Tanger Outlet Mall, and more, is only 10 minutes away. Dollywood and Parrot Mountain and Gardens are just 15 minutes away, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is less than a half-hour by car.
In short, Picture Perfect is a comfortable, convenient, and altogether welcoming home base for your Smoky Mountains vacation. So book your stay today… before someone else beats you to it!
