Removed from the crowds and traffic, Wild at Heart is a true retreat—and a wonderfully romantic one at that. When you’re not exploring the surrounding woodlands, you can laze on the pet-friendly cabin’s huge deck, luxuriate in the hot tub, and enjoy romantic dinners for 2 either alfresco or in the glow of the great room’s fireplace.
The great room looks exactly as you’d want the main space of a mountain cabin to look: lustrous wood-planked walls and floor, towering vaulted ceiling, a stone-surround fireplace. The luxurious leather sofa invites you to snuggle together as you watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with satellite channels and a DVD player or listen to music on the CD player. By the way, that sofa opens into a queen-size bed, should you have additional guests spending the night.
Easily as charming as the main room is Wild at Heart’s open bedroom. Beneath the beamed ceiling is a sumptuous log-frame king-size bed; beside that is a jetted tub large enough for both of you. It’s almost impossible to feel anything but romantic after a languorous soak among the pulsating jets of water.
If you prefer to do your soaking outdoors, you’ll love the hot tub on Wild at Heart’s covered deck. In fact, you could spend most of your stay on the deck, which wraps around 3 sides of the cabin. In addition to the roomy hot tub, there are chaises, rocking chairs, and 2 dining areas; you can watch the sunrise while sipping your morning coffee on one side of the cabin, then admire the sunset over dinner on the cabin’s other side.
The deck includes a gas grill, so you can cook up a true Smoky Mountain feast: grilled trout that you reeled in yourself from one of the nearby streams. If you’d prefer something that’s not grilled, take advantage of the kitchen’s full complement of appliances, gadgets, cookware, and tableware. There’s even a dishwasher, because who wants to wash plates when you could be relaxing in a hot tub?
It’s not all lazing and lolling at Wild at Heart (unless that’s what you want to do, of course!). Head upstairs to the cabin’s loft, and you’ll find a full-size pool table, perfect for rainy-day entertainment. Between games you can play cards or enjoy drinks at the loft’s pub-style table. The table can also serve as a desk for setting up your laptop and checking your email, courtesy of the free WiFi.
Then again, why spend time online when nature’s grandeur is right outside your door? Wild at Heart is just several miles from a little-used entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You can explore the park’s waterfalls, wildlife, and wildflowers on foot, by bike, on horseback, or by car. Also nearby is Waldens Creek Stables, where in addition to riding horses you can fish in a large stocked pond and enjoy a Wild West cookout and show. And in less than 20 minutes you can drive to the Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to the Titanic Museum, Dixie Stampede, a huge outlet mall, and restaurants and dinner theaters galore. Even Dollywood is less than a half-hour away.
Whether you spend your days on thrill rides or hiking trails, shopping or fishing, you’ll love returning to restful, restorative, and romantic evenings at Wild at Heart. Experience its bliss for yourself: Book your stay today!
