2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6
From the outside, Heart & Soul resembles a children’s-book illustration of a mountain cabin, down to the covered front porch furnished with a log-style bench and rockers. But unlike the cabins of our forefathers, this one includes such niceties as an outdoor hot tub, an indoor jetted tub, free WiFi, and flat-panel TVs with cable.
A 2-bedroom cabin that sleeps 6, Heart & Soul is located in Gatlinburg’s Mountain Shadows Resorts. When you stay in the summer, you’ll have free access to the resort’s outdoor swimming pool, which is within walking distance of the cabin; year-round you and the kids can enjoy the playground, which includes swings, basketball hoops, and a volleyball net.
What’s more, Heart & Soul is less than 15 minutes from so many area attractions: the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, the Guinness World Records Adventure, thrill rides, distilleries, mini golf, and more. And it’s just a mile from Rocky Top Sports Complex, making the cabin especially convenient if you’re in town for a tournament.
With so much to do nearby, you want your home base to be relaxing and comfortable, so that you can rest up between adventures. Heart & Soul is a bastion of serenity. In addition to its front porch, it has a large rear deck surrounded by trees. There’s no easier way to slip into vacation mode than by sitting on the porch or deck with a favorite beverage in hand as the mountain breeze rustles through the trees and the birds sing a serenade… unless it is to soak in the deck’s hot tub while the same breeze rustles and the same birds sing!
The restful ambience continues indoors. The wood-planked walls, floor, and angled ceiling add to the easygoing vibe. The large living room features 2 couches—one of which opens into a queen-size bed—so that there’s room for everyone to get comfortable while you watch TV. In summer the ceiling fan adds a refreshing breeze; in winter the stone-surround gas fireplace contributes a cozy warmth.
The dining room/kitchen has its own fireplace, as well as its own TV. The log-style table can seat 6 people easily; there’s also a drop-leaf table perfect for a romantic dinner for 2—or for setting up your chessboard or jigsaw puzzle. What’s more, the deck has a table for alfresco appetizers or snacks. The room’s open layout means that you can join in on the conversation or watch TV even while you work your culinary magic in the kitchen; it also might encourage others to pitch in and help! The kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need. All you have to bring is food… and there’s a supermarket close enough that you can walk there in 10 minutes.
Heart & Soul’s 2 bedrooms all but ensure a good night’s sleep. 2 bedrooms at Heart & Soul's are master suites which include a king-size bed, feature flat-panel TVs, charmingly rustic furnishings, plenty of storage, and ceiling fans to help lull you to sleep.
In addition to 2 bedrooms, Heart & Soul has 2 bathrooms, so you won’t have to line up to use the shower in the morning. The private en-suite master bath is where you’ll find the jetted tub; after a day of hiking, skiing, or horseback riding, a pampering soak will have your weary muscles feeling as good as new.
When you stay at Heart & Soul, your vacation can be as action-packed or as laid-back as you like—but it’s certain to be one whose memory you’ll treasure for years to come. Don’t miss out on the fun; book your stay today!

The stay was nothing less than amazing. I loved every bit of the home. I do have a few suggestions though with staying in this home with my family, I have a 2 year old who is learning to unlock doors, and when I got there I assumed the hot tub was locked as it said on my instructions but it was not, and if I wouldn't have checked it, my 2 year old would have or could have climbed the steps and been swimming around! Im sure it was just a mistake and got missed over, but over all the stay was BEAUTIFUL! I will be back again!
Thank you for staying with us Melissa. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do apologize to you that you found the hot tub unlocked. That should not have happened. We are working with our inspectors to make sure this is done every time. Again, thank you for sharing. We look forward to having you stay with us again.
Loved it but room for improvement
It was a beautiful cabin but the beds were not that comfortable
Thank you for sharing Catherine. We have passed along your suggestion to the owners. We look forward to having you stay with us again on your next trip to the Smokies.
Clean and comfortable
This was a great home base for my family on our vacation. Our children were very comfortable, as were we. It was conviently located. It was also very clean which is very important. We would certainly stay there again.
Thank you for staying with us Kelsey. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
A great escape and cozy log cabin
We loved our log cabin stay and it is very convenient to the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinberg. The porch jacuzzi was great, making a perfect summer or winter getaway. It is close to the highway, so there is road noise. We were not provided linens or towels on arrival, and had to wait a day. Beautiful, well maintained cabin and we would definitely stay again!
Thank you Jennifer for taking the time to share your review. Your input, as well as all our guest feedback is vitally important as we want all guests expectations to be met upon arrival. We sincerely apologies there were no linens and towels when your arrived. We do have a 24/7 on call service department, and even though it was late when you checked in, we would have been happy to send someone your way. This way you would not have had to wait so long. Again, thank you for sharing and we look forward to having you stay with us on your next trip to the Smokies.
We had a wonderful stay at the heart and soul cabin. It worked perfect for our family.
