A hot tub and pool table and arcade, oh my! Those are just a few of the delights that await you at Serenity Peak. Add to them free access to a swimming pool in the summer, a location just minutes from all the area’s attractions, and spectacular views of the Great Smoky Mountains, and you have the makings of a perfect vacation.
A three-bedroom log cabin that sleeps eight people in comfort and style, Serenity Peak is within the Covered Bridge Resort. Because the resort is an easy five-minute drive to the Pigeon Forge Parkway, the town’s main thoroughfare, everything from Dollywood to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Titanic Museum to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area, is practically at your front door. What’s more, the resort has a heated swimming pool that’s open in the summer, so you can enjoy a refreshing swim when you return from golfing, zorbing, or going on a spree at the outlet stores.
Serenity Peak was the development’s show model, so it boasts some especially fabulous features. Chief among these is the huge deck, one of the largest within the resort, and a gazebo with a deck swing as well as rockers. The Smoky Mountains are in plain view. At least one night you’ll want to enjoy dinner at the deck’s dining table as the sun sets over the mountains: It’s a sight you’ll long cherish.
As well as the outdoor eating area, the cabin has an indoor dining table that seats six with ease, plus an adjacent breakfast bar with room for three more. And while you’ll no doubt want to experience some of the nearby restaurants and dinner theaters—there are so many to choose from!—once you see the open, beautifully equipped kitchen you might be eager to enjoy at least a few meals right at Serenity Peak. Stainless-steel appliances, gadgets galore, plenty of cookware and tableware: The kitchen has it all.
A stone-surround fireplace warms up both the dining area and the living room. Its golden glow adds to the luster of the wood-planked floors, walls, and beamed ceiling, The living area is a marvelously relaxing space. There’s room for the whole gang to gather and watch a movie or the big game on the flat-screen TV, and the plush sofa is tailor-made for indulging in an afternoon nap.
Upstairs is the game room, another comfortable gathering spot. In addition to a full-size pool table, you’ll find an arcade and another TV. There’s a bar table as well, perfectly situated by one of the oversize windows so that you can take in a bird's eye view of the mountains and woodlands as you play cards, check your email (Serenity Peak has free WiFi), or enjoy an after-dinner drink.
Also upstairs is the master suite. Though spacious, it’s also cozy, thanks to its planked walls and vaulted ceiling. Along with a king-size bed, it features a settee that can convert into a twin bed, making this room ideal for a couple with a small child. Of course, the heart-shaped jetted tub also makes the room ideal for a couple in the mood for romance! Among the suite’s other amenities are a TV and a private bathroom; it’s a haven within a haven.
Back on the main floor are two more bedrooms. One also has a king-size bed, making the cabin well suited for two couples or families vacationing together. The third bedroom has a twin bunk bed over a double, with a trundle bed as well, so that up to four people can make this their quarters.
