What makes Take It Easy such a special cabin? It has 3 en-suite bedrooms, for starters, and can sleep 12 people in all. Its amenities include an outdoor hot tub, a home theater, and a pool table. Its 2 wraparound decks offer panoramic views of the woodlands, yet the cabin is just a 5-minute drive to the Pigeon Forge Parkway. And perhaps most striking, with 2 full kitchens and dining areas, Take It Easy is especially well suited for 2 families vacationing together.
The great room makes up most of Take It Easy’s main floor. And what a great room it is, with a towering cathedral ceiling, lustrous wood-planked walls and floor, and large windows to let in plenty of sunshine. The 2 roll-arm sofas by the fireplace are sure to be popular spots for relaxing with an après-ski drink in winter or for watching TV after a day spent at Dollywood.
The great room also encompasses the main dining area. Six can sit at the dining table, and 4 more can belly up to the breakfast bar. On the other side of the breakfast bar is the main kitchen. Open and roomy, it is equipped with just about every appliance, gadget, pot, and pan you could possibly need.
Downstairs is the 2nd kitchen, part of the game room. In addition to a full-size pool table and a foosball table, the game room also includes a dining area and a large sitting area with its own flat-screen TV. This set-up provides maximum versatility: The whole gang can hang out together, or if you’re vacationing with another family, you can each enjoy private meals and quiet time on your own. It really is the best of all worlds!
Also downstairs is the home theater. There are enough cinema-style seats for everyone to kick back and enjoy a movie together, with surround sound to enhance the experience. And if you get thirsty or need more popcorn, you can help yourself in the downstairs kitchen rather than run upstairs to the main floor.
Each of Take It Easy’s 3 bedrooms includes a king-size bed, a TV, and its own full bathroom. The loft bedroom has bunk beds as well as a king-size bed. You might want to have all the kids in your group commandeer this space; they’ll feel as if they’re on a camping adventure. One of the sofas in the great room opens into a bed for 2, as does a couch in the game room—after all, the more the merrier!
With 2 huge wrap around decks, Take It Easy’s outdoor spaces are as accommodating as its interior. Savor your morning coffee outside on a rocker as wrens and warblers greet the day; enjoy appetizers and drinks as the sun sets; listen to the serenading owls beneath the star-studded sky before turning in for the night. And perhaps best of all, luxuriate among the steamy, massaging waters of the hot tub after a day of hiking, biking, or horseback riding.
As you relax with friends on the deck while the mountain breeze rustles through the trees, you might find it hard to believe that Take It Easy is just 5 minutes from the attraction-packed Pigeon Forge Parkway. But it is! That means you can get to everything from Dollywood to the Alcatraz East Crime Museum, the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster to dinner theaters, in a flash. The cabin is also less than a half-hour from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Gatlinburg, whose attractions include Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Guinness World Records Adventure, and Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area.
When you stay at Take It Easy, you can enjoy your vacation your way. Explore the great outdoors one day, laze among the cabin’s luxuries the next, take in a show or do some shopping the day after. However you spend your time, you’re sure to make memories that last a lifetime. So don’t miss out: Book your stay today!
