About the property

2 bedroom/2 bath. Sleeps up to 6 comfortably. Fireplace! Private!

Gentry's Rest Stop-2 is your one-stop vacation playground! HOT TUB JUST ADDED! With great motorcycle access, this air conditioned cabin is the perfect complement to Gentry's Rest Stop-1, the 'Big House' also located on the same property. This cabin is newly remodeled and is a natural for any overflow from the 12-13 occupancy larger home that can be rented for large family reunions or shared vacations, yet intimate enough for two. The master bedroom has a king size bed. Bedroom #2 bedroom has unique bunk beds; the upper mattress is a twin size and the lower one is an actual full size mattress. There is a queen bed in the den/guest area. If you do rent the larger home, use of the 8-person hot tub in its own private setting is available at no extra cost. GRS-2 is also pet friendly! Everything's included in the kitchen and the cabin overlooks a wonderful bubbling creek that will lull you to sleep at night; restful to sit to by day. Outdoors there is a firepit, picnic table, grill and Jonathan Creek is right in the backyard! Very easy access year round. Guests have horseback riding, snow skiing and both water & snow tubing in town.

WANT TO KNOW MORE?: Gentry's Rest Stop-2 is professionally decorated by the owner, a well known interior designer, in a charming country decor and the outside has also been lovingly tended for picture-taking for your memory books. Four-season and holiday decorations contribute to the coziness of the home and children love to view some of the local wildlife close up that is part of the area. Gentry's have their own 'resident' elk, aptly named Bullwinkle, who actually comes to visit occasionally and loves to pose for pictures! Raccoon and squirrels scoot among the trees as well as hummingbirds, butterflies and fireflies at night. Guests are well taken care of as the Gentry's live on-site and are available to supply your every need should one arise. The Gentrys are mindful of your seclusion and separateness and you can be assured your privacy is guaranteed. There's plenty of parking for vehicles and if you want to trailer your motorcycle or ATV, there is more than enough room for turn-arounds on the gravel driveway. Easy access all year and ATV and motorcycle enthusiasts will find many trails to explore.

WHAT'S THERE TO DO?: Nearby attractions include the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway with miles of never-ending views of the beautiful mountains and valleys; Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Dillsboro, Biltmore Estate with its winery and garden tours, hiking, shopping, antiquing, whitewater rafting, tubing (both water and snow), horseback riding and of course eating at the many restaurants around the area. Only about 30 minutes away is Cherokee where you will find Harrah's Casino, and find an authentic pair of moccasins or other Native American gifts for that special person. Visit Cataloochee Valley where you can get up close and personal with the elk that were reintroduced to our area. Fontana Lake is about 45 minutes away where you can rent paddle boats or go fishing and swim in the cool mountain waters. Golfing is quite close for you duffers and horseback riding is a sure bet to enjoy fall foilage in autumn. Maggie Valley's very own Ghost Town in the Sky is now reopened and features a new ZIPLINE for you thrill-seekers! Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge are about an hour away.

About Kathy Brown

The Gentry's have been renting out their beautiful properties for many years and have loads of experience at how to make people feel like one of the family. They are very sensitive to your needs and provide everything they can to ensure your time spent in the mountains is memorable. Their little dog 'Lucy' is a familiar site to all their return friends and welcomes you as you pull into the driveway. When it's time for you to leave the mountains, you'll also leave a little piece of your heart with the Gentry's... your friends.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation ever. The home was beautiful and decorated so beautifully. The home had family mementos which made it like being with family. We met Mr. Gentry who was so nice and told us about the Elk that lived in the area. On our last day we saw the Elk as they walked onto the property and down the street. Overall, all of us including our pugs, had a wonderful vacation and we would highly recommend this home for a great vacation. We cannot wait to come back.

Easter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Long weekend with the kids to start Easter Break. The area and creek were perfect. The house was as advertised and well stocked. Highlights were seeing an Elk cross the road as we were arriving Friday night, conversation with Mr. Gentry with him giving me the history of the property & area, time in the hot tub while listening to the creek and very minimal traffic in the area. I also enjoyed cycling down through Maggie Valley a couple afternoons while the family napped. We will definitely return.

We had a great time doing what we went up there for, almost nothing. The cabin was decorated with the Christmas spirit. Got about 10" of snow that made it even better. Even though it was cold ( o ) Thursday morning with high 18 we slept with window cracked so we could here the creek. Cabin had everything that you need. We plan on going back and take ATV. Thank you Gentry's and Kathy hope to see yall again.

Clean & comfortable for family of 5 + dog!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this very clean cabin. It is in a quiet location and we found it to have everything that we needed for a beautiful stay. The lovely sound of the creek relaxes you in the day and helps you sleep at night. Or maybe it was sitting in the new Hot Tub that made us sleep so good. Our kids and dog enjoyed playing and building dams in the creek behind the cabin. While we enjoyed sitting on the deck, watching them, reading, and drinking a good glass of wine. Everything is so peaceful and tranquil, just perfect to relax. The owners live next door and are very helpful.

The Great Smokey National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, and Cherokee are only minutes away. Lots of hiking trails are nearby, but not all of them are dog-friendly.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. It was beautifully decorated, has everything you need. My husband's favorite part was sitting on the back porch listening to the rushing waters of the creek. We plan on coming back next year & staying longer.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful home. We really enjoyed ourselves.
