About the property

Two bedrooms, two bathroom on second floor with creekside and mountain views.

As you enter our home away from home, you will be welcomed by Harry, who is our Smoky Mountain bear carved from a tree with a chainsaw. Enjoy your stay with family and friends using our fully furnished kitchen. The kitchen has cherry cabinets and granite countertops. There is a Food City about a mile from the condo if you need groceries. While preparing the meal, you will enjoy the open concept which allows you to converse with friends in the living room or dining room. Once your meal is ready you are invited to eat at the bar area or at the dining room table; both accommodate four people.

If you choose to eat your meal at the dining room table, take notice of the wood table with bear claw legs. It appears Harry has had some influence in selecting some of the furniture for his guests. The chairs move with ease so your family can enjoy chatting and sharing a meal together. When you have cleared the table, put the dishes in the dishwasher for your convenience and relax.

Feeling a little sleepy after dinner and want to unwind? Unbuckle your belt and relax on our comfortable red leather couch and loveseat in the living room. While you are relaxing in the living room, you will notice the lighting on the end tables is perfect to read a book and put your feet up on the wooden coffee table that is placed in front of the couch and loveseat. If you do not feel like reading, feel free to use the 55" HD flat screen TV and blue ray DVD player to watch a movie or your favorite TV show. You may bring your game system and plug it into the HDMI port on the TV. If you are staying with us in the winter, keep warm and cozy with the gas fireplace on those chilly mountain evenings. The condo has heat/AC throughout the space. A ceiling fan helps cool off the living room during warmer weather. The living room is complete with a bear picture that was taken on the roaring fork creek that runs behind the Gatehouse.

After watching a movie, it is time to hit the sack. Our condo has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. From the living room there is a hallway that has pictures from around the area taken by Ken Jenkins, who is a well-known local photographer. The condo is equipped with a washer/dryer for your convenience in the hallway.

The guest bedroom is furnished with dresser, closet, end tables, 32" HD TV, and king size sleigh bed for your beauty rest. The guest bedroom also has a ceiling fan and lighting for reading in bed until you fall asleep. Children an teens will enjoy the guest bedroom away from parents. it is a great place to plug in a gaming system into the HDMI port on the HD TV. The wall near the bed contains a picture taken by Ken Jenkins of Cades Cove during the different seasons.

For your day of shopping or site seeing, the guest bathroom is the perfect place to apply makeup with its theatrical lighting over the mirror. The bathroom has a shower/tub combination and a cherry vanity to get ready in the morning. Linens are provided for your stay with us.

If you decide to take the master bedroom, you will feel like a king or queen. The master suite has dresser, closet, end tables, 40" HD TV, ceiling fan, and king size bed. Before you relax in bed, open the window to lull yourself to sleep listening to the Roaring Fork creek that flows behind the Gatehouse. The master bedroom has its own door to the balcony.

Complete your day unwinding in the master bathroom using the Jacuzzi tub or shower. Your spa experience is complete with a cherry vanity and provided linens. The bathroom is well lit for getting ready in the morning with the same theatrical lighting as the guest bathroom.

Wake up in the morning after a peaceful night’s sleep with a cup of coffee sitting on the balcony. It is the most relaxing spot for some quiet time before the rest of your family or friends rise. The private balcony consists of a table with four chair and two lounge chairs that have footstools. If you wake up and do not want to change out of your pj’s, just simply pull down the privacy screen on the balcony, and continue listening and watching the creek flow and roar. You may even see children or adults playing in the creek.

Our spacious and open condo is equipped with free Wi-Fi. The condo is close to hiking trails, shopping, Dollywood, and Leconte Center, and Rocky Top Sports World Complex. Our guests can save on parking fees and walk a half mile to downtown Gatlinburg. You may also us the trolley stop to downtown, which is located across the street from Gatehouse. We know you will feel like royalty staying with us! Before you leave our home away from home, Harry would love to have his picture made with you and your family!

About Steve, Janis, & Ginger Koonce

The Koonce family currently lives in East Tennessee. We enjoy spending time together in the Smokies.

Steve, Janis, & Ginger Koonce purchased this condo in 2007

Why Steve, Janis, & Ginger Koonce chose East

We chose to buy our home away from home in the Smokies because we enjoy traveling to the area and taking part in the many festivals and attractions.

What makes this condo unique

The balcony overlooking the Roaring Fork Creek made us fall in love with this condo. Our home away from home sits on the second floor and we can hear the creek roar while sleeping in the master bedroom or on the balcony. Our home away from home is walking distance to several restaurants and shops.

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week long stay in your condo. The location was perfect as it was close to everything yet it was off the beaten path for privacy.

The balcony was our favorite place as it overlooked the creek and the vibrant colors of the trees. The condo is decorated nicely and the kitchen had everything we needed. We would definitely stay in your condo again....perhaps next fall!

Loved it, love the view, love the porch, loved listening to the creek. Love the condo.

  • 5 of 5

It was an honor to be able to have two trips to the condo in a short period of time. There were no negatives. I might add to the above review it is a very quite location. Look forward to returning. I love the fact there was a bath for each bedroom. You will not be disappointed in this unit. I do suggest leaving directions on using the digital thermostat. It was a tad confusing for an old lady not up to snuff on her electronics. It is very clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The large covered porch is an added room almost. Comfortable chairs, table and protected from the weather.
