We’ve got the best location for your Smoky Mountain vacations! Again, we’re biased, but hear us out! 🙂 If our 5 Bedroom cabin is too much for you check out our 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin, Fireflies & Moonshine. And if you missed reading about our 5 bedroom cabin-check here. Just like our other cabin, Fireflies & Moonshine is located a resort area just a quick drive from the crazy, busy parkway in Downtown Gatlinburg, with all the same conveniences!
As you pull into your FLAT parking space (really, you can’t get flat parking many places
this close to the Smokies!) you’ll be greeted by the cutest front porch…it’ll be hard to resist the temptation to relax in the porch swing before you unpack…go ahead…you deserve it!
Sure, two bedrooms sounds kind of small and if you’ve stayed in a smoky mountain cabin, many are pretty small. Not us! When you walk in, you’ll enter the living room with plenty of seating for up to six, tall ceilings, a beautiful, locally hand carved mantle and cozy fireplace. The open floor plan then takes you to a spacious dining area and kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with all the needs a home cook could need. One of the perks of a cabin is saving money by preparing meals at home, not to mention TIME waiting on for your table since very few restaurants in the area take a reservation.
Also on the first floor is one of two master suites. This one is THE master since it has a Jacuzzi tub in addition to the tub and shower combo. Upstairs you’ll find the second master bedroom and bath with a seating area for resting or reading that book you’ve been meaning to read! Like many cabins in the area, we’ve got a loft with a TV and games as well as a futon that sleeps 2 more!
The best part of the cabin is my favorite-the sunroom! Off the dining and kitchen areas is a gorgeous, wood paneled, cozy sunroom. It’s perfect for grabbing your favorite book (you know, that one you’ve been trying to finish) and reading in one of two recliners, or heck, it’s vacation-take a nap! There’s also a small table for a friendly game of cards or checkers! To get even cozier in the wintertime you can turn on the gas fireplace and enjoy the wooded view.
What to Do
We’re close to so much! The quieter areas of the park are so convenient-Cosby is 20 minutes away and full of great day hikes or an overnight in a tent at their campground if you’re feeling adventurous. Check out Greenbrier where you will find Porter’s Creek trail and an old cemetery as well as a couple of older buildings. If you’re up for a longer hike, pack a lunch and check out Ramsey’s Cascades. Of course, Sugarlands Visitor center is as little as 15 minutes away-that’s a great place to stop and talk with a Park Ranger about where to venture in the park on any given day!
Walk to the pool if you want to cool off. If the kids are restless, our resort has a great play area with swings and a sand volleyball court as well as basketball! Mills Park is a quick drive, too. there you’ll find play areas for the kids as well!
There’s plenty of shopping on the Arts & Crafts Trail-it’s our backyard! We are blessed with so many beautiful artisans. You won’t be able to see them all in one day!
In the winter, there’s tubing and snow skiing at Ober Gatlinburg. In warmer months you can ride a variety of rides and zip down the mountain on the new mountain coaster or the original Alpine Slide, take the chairlift up even higher for more amazing views or play a friendly game of mini-golf. Ice skating is available year round, too! Of course, you’ve gotta take the tram from Downtown up the mountainside. No worries if someone is afraid of heights, you can drive up, too! Just follow the signs along Ski Mountain Rd at the south end of downtown.
Well, I could go on and on and on…but I invite you to come see for yourself all there is to do when you stay with us! Check out our calendar and rates to book your stay now
