Private Homes, Stoplight 6 cabin description


Baskins Creek Sounds is our unique Log 'Home away from Home' that we make available to those who are looking for a very relaxing setting and atmosphere.

Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a small mountain town bordering the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Our place is within easy walking distance to the center of town or you can walk right up the street and into the park. Pass a gorgeous waterfall approximately 45 minutes away and if you really like to hike, keep going and connect up with many other park trails. We have approximately 200 feet of creek frontage on beautiful Baskins Creek so you can enjoy the sights and sounds you normally find with a mountain stream.

The house has three (3) large bedrooms--- two (2) up and one (1) down and 2 full baths. Includes a King, a Queen, and 2 twins as well as a Queen sleeper sofa. New living room furniture looks great on the hardwood floors. All total, you can enjoy either of three (3) televisions, with DVD and VCR.

The kitchen and dining room is 20’x18’ with a cathedral ceiling of knotty pine that looks great with the log walls. Included is a ceiling fan, island wet bar, and a gas fireplace. Seat 10 comfortably at the dining table and there is also a children’s table for 4.

Open the side kitchen door to enjoy our large screened in porch with an additional table for 4, a couple of unique chairs and a lounge where you can let the creek sing you to sleep. That is if someone doesn’t wake you up on his or her way out the door to the Grill.

The yard is an experience all it’s own. Except for the house the remainder of this beautiful half-acre is filled with unique flowers, trees, and shrubs, all in a nature type setting. It is doubtful that anyone could identify everything but you owe it to yourself to try. There are plenty of places to sit and think, pray, or just enjoy the quietness. You’ll also find birdhouses, fountains, statutes, and stuff just about anywhere you look.

Of course the best way to experience most of this is to park yourself on the 30’ front porch where you can Swing, Rock, or just be Still.

As you can tell, our home is more about relaxing than it is partying. Actually, if partying hard and long is on your mind we had rather refer you to other opportunities.

                                Loved the Cabin ....clean and neat with everthing you could asked for. The fireplace in the kitchen was my favorite place to sit and relax after a very busy day in the Gatlinburg Area. I will recommend it to all my friends and family. I can't wait to go again.

                                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, romantic getaway, pet owners, sightseeing.

                                The pictures don't do justice to the beautiful grounds. There is a hidden treasure around every turn of the path. It was so nice to sit on one of the two porches at night and hear no sounds but the crickets and the water rushing along the creek. It is unbelievable that a place this peaceful can be located so close to the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg. And we saw a bear! From the several sets of paw prints we saw in the back yard, it appears that the animals use the back yard as a pathway to the creek. We have no hesitation recommending this rental to anyone looking for a Gatlinburg rental. It is close to town, but has the look and feel of a mountain cabin.

                                A very nice and clean cabin for my friends who wants to go to Smokey Mountain at day and get some really nice rest at night. The cabin really feels like home and had all the things you need. Great for family and group of friends. About 1.5 miles from Gatlinburg and it is very convenience to go to Smokey Mountain, go to Gatlinburg for dinner before go back to cabin and get some rest.

                                We were looking for a comfortable, relaxing, getaway for our family. That is just what we got when we arrived at Baskins Creek sound. We found everything as described and the pictures are spot on. It is just beautiful! Our family wanted to stay forever. :-) It is about a 5 to 8 minute walk to Gatlinbug, which is perfect because you are out of the hustle and bustle in the quaint cabin. We found it to be clean,comfortable beds, a fully equiped kitchen, and the gardens are amazing! We were happy to have our family come for a day with plenty of room. The kitchen was my favorite! Having coffee by the fire and reading. We also enjoyed the porch a lot! We will be back to visit. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us. Some of our highlights from the trip: The Christ in the Smokies museum, Cades Cove, The Aquarium, The Happy Days Diner, and the Smokey Mountain trails.

                                Our family had a wonderful time staying here on our first trip to Gatlinburg. We cannot say enough about the joys of relaxing at your home while we were here. It felt as comfortable as our own home. We experienced Ober Gatlinburg, Cades Cove, and many more attractions on our stay. It has been a peaceful and relaxing trip as we celebrated our daughter’s National Dance Competition. May God bless you both. We will be back to stay with you again.

                                We enjoyed our visit to The Smoky Mountains immensely. We did lots of activities, including hiking to the falls via Baskins Creek Trail. We found it; thanks for your directions. At the end of the day we always had your beautiful cabin to return to. Lots of room, beautiful kitchen. We ate most of our meals on the screened-in porch. It was great. We had a wonderful visit! God bless you! The “B” family from Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

                                Thank you, thank you, and thank you for allowing us to stay in your “mountain retreat”. We so enjoyed our couple of days of rest and relaxation. I really think that the serenity of this place is a glimpse of heave! The calm sounds and peace of this place were just what we needed. The was a blessing to us.

                                My husband and I were married here 15 years ago. Our 3 children have been begging us to take them to Gatlinburg where we were married. As soon as we arrived we knew we were going to enjoy your cabin. Everything we needed was here and even the linens on the bed smelled fresh! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay on your “other” home. We loved everything about it and would love to come back. God Bless! The “P” family from Melbourne, Florida.
