Easy Livin, 2 Bedrooms, Wood Fireplace, Hot Tub, Pool Table, Sleeps 6
Gatlinburg - Smoky Mountains
The living really is easy when you stay at Easy Livin: Despite its peaceful, private setting, the 2-bedroom cabin is only 1 mile from downtown Gatlinburg and a few minutes’ drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. So whether you’re planning an action-packed vacation with the kids, an outdoorsy adventure with another couple, or a mellow, romantic getaway with your special someone, Easy Livin fills the bill.
Let’s start our tour on the main level, which houses the open-plan living space. Right away you’ll notice how delightfully welcoming it is, from the gleaming polished log walls and ceiling to the stone-surround wood-burning fireplace to the gently whirring ceiling fans. One of the living room sofas converts to a bed for 2, so that Easy Livin can accommodate up to 6 overnight guests. The 52” flat-screen TV with cable ensures that you won’t miss the big game and also gives you a reason to stay in at least one evening for movie night (don’t forget the popcorn!).
For more at-home entertainment, check out the game room on the same floor. There’s a pool table, a dartboard, a checkers table, and plenty of space for the kids to sprawl out with their Legos and coloring books.
The open kitchen means you can easily keep up with the conversation around the pool table or keep an eye on the TV in the living room while you channel your inner Rachael Ray or Julia Child—or simply make a stack of ham-and-cheese sandwiches. Whether you plan to eat in most nights or intend to try every restaurant within a 10-mile vicinity (and there are plenty!), you’ll love the convenience of the fully equipped kitchen. The stainless-steel refrigerator/freezer can hold a week’s worth of groceries, so you can stock up at the start of your vacation and not have to waste additional time grocery shopping. And speaking of not wanting to waste time, the kitchen has a dishwasher too. Prefer to cook outdoors whenever you have the chance? Then you’ll be happy to know Easy Livin has a charcoal grill as well.
The 2 bedrooms are tucked away on the lower level, providing privacy and quiet when some of your party wants to stay up practicing their pool shots while others want to turn in early. Both bedrooms are master suites: Each has a so-comfortable king-size bed, a flat-panel TV, plenty of storage, direct access to one of the 2 full bathrooms, and perhaps best of all, French doors that open directly onto the lower deck, where you’ll find the spacious hot tub! When you arrive the hot tub will have been emptied, sanitized, and refilled, so you can climb right in and get your vacation off to a truly luxurious start.
Even when you’re not soaking, both the upper and lower decks are fabulous spaces to sit back with a cup of coffee or a frosty glass of iced tea and listen to the larks and swallows in the morning. Maybe you’ll even see an eagle soar overhead.
For even more wildlife, head to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; it’s less than 10 minutes away. There you might see black bears and white-tailed deer, elk and woodchucks. You can also hike among old-growth forests and waterfalls, fish for trout, go horseback riding… you’ll never run out of things to see and do. Also nearby are the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop (a must for one-of-a-kind souvenirs), Dollywood, zip-lining, golf courses, go-karts, bowling, and white-water rafting.
And after a day on the go, you have restful Easy Livin to return to. Or maybe you’ll want to spend a day or two right there, soaking in the hot tub, catching up on your reading while you laze on the deck, or taking advantage of the free WiFi to post photos of the brilliant foliage on Facebook and Instagram.
