4 minutes to the Gatlinburg 'strip'- yet totally private. This beautiful cabin called 'A Hidden Paradise' is romantic and is the perfect spot for your honeymoon or anniversary celebration. It's located in the city of Gatlinburg. It's a small piece of paradise for those vacationing in the Smoky Mountains. If you want to experience Gatlinburg's sight and sounds, but still want peace and quiet, this cabin is for you.

Many couples spend their honeymoon here and return each year for anniversary celebrations. Gatlinburg is a place for weddings and anniversary celebrations. This is the perfect spot for you when you are trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's a place where you can go to re-connect and spend quality time together.

This Gatlinburg cabin has a loft area with a king sized bed, private bath, and jacuzzi tub. You can soak in the jacuzzi tub and enjoy the peaceful surroundings and privacy. The spacious loft has a rocker for enjoying a good book or to just relax and sit. The loft has huge windows and a wonderful wooded outdoor view. A 30' flat screen TV (added July 2010) with DVD player is available for movie watching in bed.

The downstairs area includes a second bathroom with a shower, a pool table area with a game table and bar stools (also a 22' flat screen TV), and a comfortable living area with a gas fireplace. A recliner allows you to stretch back and watch a favorite movie or video. A 42' flat screen TV was added in July 2010 in the living area. The dining area includes a table and fully stocked kitchen. We have tried to furnish any item you would need for cooking and preparing meals.

You can grill steaks on the charcoal grill (new in April 2010) and share a romantic candlelight dinner or picnic on the deck in front of the outside fireplace. The outside fireplace is close enough to the hot tub so you can soak in the hot tub and enjoy the fire at the same time. The deck is private and secluded and has a hot tub for romantic evenings.

The cabin is on the boundary of the National Park near the Roaring Fork Motor Trail, so don't be surprised to see some wildlife (sometimes including a bear or two) while you are there.

One of the best surprises of this cabin is how convenient it is to all area attractions, yet it seems miles away from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg. You are about a mile from the Parkway at light #3 in the center of Gatlinburg, but you will think you are miles away from everyone and everything. The Arts and Crafts Community is just a few minutes away.

Come and spend your time together in 'A Hidden Paradise'. It will be a time for renewal and relaxation just for the two of you. You will want to come back every year for your special time together.

A Hidden Paradise has WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS, so you can take your laptop and be able to check email or use it for work. An alarm system was added in the fall of 2009 for extra security and peace of mind.

Come and stay in this wonderful Gatlinburg log cabin rented directly by the owners. We love our vacation home and want to share it with you. We visit several times every year and do our best to keep everything in tip-top shape. It is a special place we love and we know you'll love it too.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: We're the Faust's- Neil, Lisa, Dylan, and Drew. Our family bought A Hidden Paradise in 2006. We live in Alabama and enjoy spending time in the Smoky Mountain area. We travel to the area about 5-6 times a year and visit local area attractions or just relax at the cabin. This photo was taken at the observation tower of Clingman's Dome.

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 3:
          We live about 4.5 hours from Gatlinburg, so it's a quick trip for us to enjoy everything.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          A Hidden Paradise is homey and comfortable. When you stay at the cabin, you feel like you are at home, but it's still romantic and private. We especially love the outdoor fireplace which is on the deck with the hot tub. The outdoor fireplace is operational year round. We also love being just one mile from the Gatlinburg strip. The cabin's location is such a great spot- convenient to everything, but still peaceful and quiet.
