Downtown Getaway is less than a mile from the attractions-packed Pigeon Forge Parkway. Yet you’ll find that difficult to remember when you’re luxuriating in the patio hot tub, perched on a deck swing listening to birds sing, or grilling burgers outdoors as mountain breezes rustle through the trees. At times like that, you’ll feel as if you’re far in the countryside.
The 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom lodge certainly looks like a mountain cabin, albeit a spacious one. The main floor’s great room features wood-planked walls and a stone-surround fireplace you’ll love gathering around on brisk winter evenings. The kids can make a game of counting all the bears hidden among the decorative accents, and the dining area includes a log-style table and seating. But there’s nothing old-fashioned about the large flat-screen TV with cable or the free WiFi throughout the home.
The kitchen is also thoroughly modern, with stainless steel appliances as well as plenty of cookware, gadgets, and tableware. Even if you decide to eat your main meals out at the local restaurants—Downtown Getaway is only minutes from scores of them, dishing up everything from Southern to German to New American cuisine—you’re sure to appreciate being able to brew coffee, mix margaritas, reheat leftovers, and make popcorn anytime you want.
The popcorn will come in handy when you take advantage of Downtown Getaway’s home theater. Situated off the great room, the theater room has a huge screen and what may be the most comfortable seats in the cabin. In fact, you might want to hang out in there even when you’re not watching a movie.
There’s more fun to be had in the downstairs game room. Along with a pool table that can convert to a ping-pong table, the room includes 2 game arcades, a table perfect for playing cards or board games, a plush couch, and another flat-screen TV. The game room even has a wet bar with a microwave as well as a fridge and a coffeemaker. The kids (and some of the adults) could easily while away entire days down here.
Downtown Getaway can sleep as many as 20 people. All 6 bedrooms include a flat-screen TV and an eye-catching log-style bed frame. The master suite boasts a king-size four-poster bed, a private bathroom, and French doors that open onto the deck (perfect for a bit of romance under the stars). Two more bedrooms also have king-size beds, and another bedroom has a queen. Twin-over-full bunk beds make that particular bedroom well suited for the kids. Then again, the 6th bedroom also makes a great kids’ clubhouse: With a pair of queen-size bunk beds, it can sleep up to 8 people. Should you need still more beds, there’s a futon that can accommodate 2 guests.
The 5 bathrooms are outfitted to the same high standard as the rest of Downtown Getaway. We’ll provide plenty of clean towels and extra bedding, and of course, the beds will be perfectly made up by the time you arrive. Not only can you leave your linens at home, but you can pack even lighter than usual, as the house has its own washer and dryer.
Downtown Getaway would be a fabulous cabin just about anywhere, but its proximity to the best of Pigeon Forge makes it exceptional. Dollywood, the Titanic Museum, the Island amusement center, Alcatraz East Crime Museum, and the Tanger outlet mall are just a few of the attractions within a 10-minute drive. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community are each about 20 minutes away, as is downtown Gatlinburg, whose attractions include Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.
Offering the bucolic serenity of the mountains with the convenience of being close to the action, Downtown Getaway is a truly special cabin. Don’t miss out; book your stay today.
