The Skipping Stone is nestled directly on the Little Pigeon River, Gatlinburg's pre-eminent trout stream, on three acres, with hundreds of feet of river frontage. Aside from its 'right smack there on the river' location, this luxurious lodge is the absolute, bar none, best of accommodations with over 4,200 square feet, ten-foot ceiling, massive bedrooms (4 identical master suites with king-size beds) and spacious decks overlooking the river.
Luxuries and amenities of The Skipping Stone include HDTV, extensive DVD collection, Playstation 2 and XBox 360 available upon request, excellent kitchenware and dinnerware, stainless steel appliances, Direct TV with tons of premium movie channels, hand-made furniture, fine fabrics, leathers and linens. Each bedroom features its own HDTV and spacious, well-appointed bath with jacuzi tub and separate shower. Hardwood floors and the stacked stone fireplace create a cozy mountain atmosphere. The game room is fully equipped to occupy any guest of any age. Designer-furnished with the very best, this cabin will spoil you either indoors or out.
Aside from the house, the river is the real highlight here. Simply put, the setting is stunning, with the view unobstructed upstream and downstream except for the river house across and a few hundred feet upstream. Looking back from the river, only one neighbor's house is visible for as far as the eye can see. Directly in front of the two floors of decks is a fabulous swimming hole, rapids upstream and downstream. Inner tubes are furnished as well as fishing rods and equipment ( you will need a license and we can furnish all necessary information). The gorgeous view, sounds of the rushing river and gentle breezes make dinner on the deck an unforgettable experience. Likewise, lounging in the hot tub just twenty feet from the river is a special treat.
This million-dollar-plus lodge was completed in 2006 with no detail overlooked. Treat yourself to something truly special, the very best of settings and accommodations, a home you will definitely want to return to again and again.
