At Having a Blast, up to 20 people can relish both the bucolic beauty of the Smoky Mountains and the luxurious amenities of a 5-star hotel. The 3-story log lodge, which looks out onto Bluff and Cove Mountains, includes 5 master suites with private Jacuzzis and fireplaces, a home theater, a pool table, Netflix, free WiFi, and much more.
Let’s start our tour of Having a Blast with the great room. Located on the wheelchair-accessible main floor, this space is large enough to accommodate 3 sofas. The double-height ceiling keeps the ambience open and airy, while the fireplace makes the room especially inviting on brisk winter evenings. When you’re not gazing out the windows at the mountains, you can watch a movie on the flat-screen TV. The room includes a library of books and games, plus a mini hand-carved table and chairs where little ones can play.
The dining area is spacious as well. Between the long table and the adjacent breakfast bar, the room seats a small crowd. The kitchen is equipped with stainless-steel appliances, cookware, tableware, and plenty of granite counter space so that you can easily host a holiday feast. You can cook and dine outdoors as well: The main level’s rear deck is outfitted with a grill and picnic tables.
The game room makes up much of the downstairs. When you’re not shooting pool at the billiard table, you can play cards at the poker table, challenge yourself at the 60-game arcade, or stretch out on the couch and listen to your favorite tunes on the satellite radio.
Also downstairs is the home theater. Plush sofas ensure that your movie-watching experience is a comfortable one. The 73” HDTV with surround-sound accommodates 3-D, so if you have 3-D movies and glasses, bring them along. The room also has a Blu-ray player, a library of movies, and Netflix. There’s even a wet bar for making popcorn or storing drinks.
The 5 master suites are spread out among the 3 stories. Each bedroom includes a king-size bed with a hand-carved log frame, a stone-surround fireplace, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player and a VCR, and a private bathroom. As if that weren’t luxurious enough, every en-suite bathroom boasts a jetted tub along with a shower and a large vanity with a granite counter and plenty of storage. One of the 2 suites on the main floor is wheelchair-friendly, with grip bars in the bathroom. And the 2 suites on the top floor open directly onto the front balcony, with views of Cove Mountain. In addition, 3 of the cabin’s sofas open into queen-size beds.
Upstairs includes a sleeping loft with queen-size bunk beds that can accommodate 4 people. One advantage of sleeping here is that the loft includes an air-hockey table. Another is that it opens onto the upper rear deck with rockers. These might be the best perches for admiring the star-studded night sky… except perhaps for the hot tub on the lower deck. Luxuriating among steamy bubbles while owls hoot and crickets chirp will soothe both body and soul. So will a steam shower in the 6th bathroom: You and your special someone can both sit among the 24 massaging jets of water while listening to the built-in radio… talk about pampering!
Given all these luxuries, you might want to spend your entire vacation in the cabin. But then you’d be missing out on the many nearby attractions. The waterfalls, wildlife, and wildflowers of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are less than 20 minutes away, while the rides and shows of Dollywood are just 25 minutes from the cabin. Also, close by are the Titanic Museum, WonderWorks, dinner theaters, shops, restaurants…
One thing is for sure: When you stay at Having a Blast, you’ll, well, have a blast. So book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it!

The cabin was amazing, very clean, and spacious, there were a few minor problems such as, air hockey table didn't work, some of the tvs didn't work, a fire place in one of the rooms didn't work as well as the jet tub, the steam shower doors were broke also, again nothing major, over all it was worth it to get the cabin, I'd definitely do it again!

Beautiful Place to Stay
We stayed with a church group of 17 adults for 3 nights. The cabin had plenty of room and lots of fun amenities and stocked well. The only con is it could use more towels for such a large cabin because we had to wash two nights. Will definitely stay here again and maybe spend more time at the cabin. It was a convenient location and wasn't too far up the mountain for travel which is important for us since we were in a church bus.
Karen, thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share. We are pleased to hear that Having a Blast provide a great place for you and your church group. We look forward to having you stay with us gain soon.
Best Family Cabin Ever
Having A Blast was perfect for all 14 of us. Everyone had their own suites and we ended up with an extra bedroom because the kids slept in the Theater room. Couldn't get them out of it. Great location and a killer view, especially at night. Next time in the area for a UGA/UT game we will rent it again. Go Dogs
Craig, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Having a Blast. Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
