Summer Family Getaway
Summer Family Getaway
Enjoyed our stay at Baskins Creek Retreat. The creek runs right in front of the house, and you can hear it flowing simply sitting on the front porch or on the side deck, even indoors with the windows or doors open. Very nice feature. House was clean and well stocked. Maybe the best water heater I have ever seen in a home, plenty of hot water for 6 adults, no problem. The two full baths upstairs are in the hallway, so it is very nice and accessible for three sets of couples to get to them. A half bath is downstairs too. A pull out sofa bed is also available if needed. I would comment that walking to downtown is certainly achievable, but it is a pretty long walk, approx. 9 tenths of a mile to the downtown parkway. We found that we could drive down from the house to many available parking areas, and park our car for $5 bucks a day, and then walk around, thus saving an uphill walk back up to the house. Walking would be more enjoyable in the spring and fall, when it is cooler. We also found a public parking garage next door to Cooter's, just to the right as you come back down to light # 6, and it was only $1.75 for a couple of hours if you wanted to park and walk to a couple of restaurants too. We also learned pretty quickly how to use the Baskins Creek Bypass, to help us get around the Gatlinburg traffic. The grocery store, Food Lion, is easy to access using this Bypass and heading north on 321 just a short drive. Note: gas is much cheaper to buy at the Food Lion vs. buying gas in downtown Gatlinburg, and I mean 40 cents a gallon cheaper! We had a minor issue arise when we arrived, and simply contacted the owner via email, and all was resolved quickly, and without delay. Very responsive owners, who answered my questions about the area ahead of our arrival, how to find the grocery, the Gatlinburg community pool (which is accessed best via the Bypass and note is a couple of miles away from the house) etc. Also, the Gatlinburg Community Center has a gym, bowling, swimming lap lanes where you don't have to fight kids for space to swim your laps for exercise or just hanging out too. All in all, our family enjoyed our stay.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Stoplight 6:
My husband and I love the outdoors and have enjoyed hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains for decades. Our children have inherited this same love. We built Baskins Creek Retreat in 2000 for an investment and as a homey place to relax after a day on the trails.
