When it comes to luxury on a grand scale, Journey’s End sets a high bar. For starters, this custom property is actually 2 homes: a grand main lodge and a nearly as pampering guesthouse just 30 yards away. This setup makes Journey’s Edge ideal for several families vacationing together.
Then there are the spectacular views. Because Journey’s End is located on the highest point of the Cedar Falls Resort, it looks out onto stunning unobstructed vistas of the Smoky Mountains—and offers plenty of vantage points from which to enjoy them. In addition to the lodge’s huge covered porch, framed with stone arches, there are multiple decks and balconies. The main patio features chaises, a dining table, and a hot tub in full view of the mountains and the woodlands. A 2nd alfresco dining area nestles beneath a pergola so that you can enjoy your meal in the cool shade. On yet another patio, there’s room for everybody to congregate at night around the gas fire pit. The glow of the flames is an idyllic accompaniment to the chirping of crickets and the hooting of the owls.
You can relish the views from the private outdoor pool as well—yes, Journey’s End has its own pool. And if that’s still not lavish enough for you, there’s a private putting green too. Just don’t let the spectacular scenery distract you!
The splendor continues indoors. The oversize windows of the main house enable you to relish nature’s grandeur even while you relax among the living room’s supple leather sofas or eat a meal at the dining room’s table, which seats 10. Each of these rooms has its own fireplace to add to the warm, welcoming ambiance.
If you view vacations as a chance to practice your culinary skills, you’d love the main house’s lavish kitchen. Gleaming appliances, top-grade gadgets, and sparkling countertops in a spacious open setting making cooking a pleasure. The island doubles as a breakfast bar, with handsome twig-style stools to seat up to 4 people. What’s more, there’s a large gas grill outside, so that you can cook as well as dine outdoors or in.
After dinner—or any other time, really—you can kick back and watch a movie in the home theater with surround sound. The 8 cinema-style seats are so comfortable, you might want to lounge in them with a book after the film. Journey’s End has a game room too: Choose between shooting pool at the full-size billiard table, playing air hockey, or hosting a poker marathon at the large game table. Prefer something even more relaxing? Step inside the home’s private sauna. We told you Journey’s End was luxurious!
Of Journey’s End’s 5 bedrooms, 3 are in the main lodge. Each of these includes a lofty king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, exquisite furnishings, and views you’ll love waking up to. One of these bedrooms has its own fireplace too, plus direct access to a balcony. Of the 2 bedrooms in the guesthouse, one includes a king-size bed, while the other features a queen. In addition, one of the myriad sofas opens into a queen-size bed, so that Journey’s End can sleep 12 people in all.
The guesthouse has its own great room, with ample cushioned seating, a flat-screen TV, and a dining table for 4. It also has a separate den with another TV, plus a fully equipped kitchen and a breakfast bar that seats 2.
Once you arrive at Journey’s End, you won’t want to leave. But as a bonus, it’s within a half-hour drive of restaurants, shops, and the area’s most popular attractions, including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Dollywood.
