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.

Very clean cabin and it has all of the comforts of home! There was everything you could want in a cabin and more. Every time I went looking for something they had it... even down to a tube of super glue for a quick repair I needed to do. The creek behind the cabin is awesome! We made a fire in the fire pit and enjoyed the cool night air. There were elk that visited a couple of times which was unexpected but very cool! The owners were very friendly and we would definitely stay here again!
So glad you enjoyed you stay. We look forward to your return visit. Thank you.
We had a great time and are already planning a return trip (maybe with the whole family this time). The whole area is so beautiful. I can't wait to see it in the fall.
The house had everything we needed even though we didn't spend enough time there. There's so much to do in the area! We enjoyed hiking up the hill and down to the creek. The roaring of the creek is so soothing. Highlight of the trip was seeing a Mama Bear and her cubs in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The gift basket was a real nice touch. I can't recommend this enough!
So glad you enjoyed your stay and got to experience some of our nature. It is beautiful in the mountains. We look forward to your return visit. Thank you.
Maggie Valley, NC Spring break 2018
Very cozy and well equipped with all the comforts of home. The gas fireplace ran out of gas before our stay ended which was a disappointment, but other than that we had a very nice time.
Glad you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry about the gas running out, but, called to have it delivered, asap.
Stayed 3 nights weather was not the greatest. 1 beautiful day. Great stream behind cabin with fantastic views from the deck. Very well appointed 3 grills, one by the stream 2 on the deck. Had my 2 boys 9 and 12 they spent hours playing in and around the stream. We will be back.
So happy you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to your return visit. Thank you!
The house is very nice, the hot tub after skiing excelent.
Too bad it rained saturday and sunday, we could not use the fire pitt by the creek.
Hope to come back again next year.
Thank you. Look forward to your return visit.
We loved our visit to Gentry Rest Stop. Well stocked cabin and great property to explore. Loved the creek and they have it set up to have lots of fun family time by the creek. Would definitely stay again if in the area. Thanks Rhonda and Bobby!
