Simple Pleasures - the smell of mountain air, the panoramic views, the peaceful quiet while relaxing in the porch swing, the soothing massage of the hot tub, or dining al fresco on the expansive covered porch while enjoying the VERY private setting - all simple, but definitely pleasures that should be experienced after a busy day in the Smoky Mountains.
Simple Pleasures is a 2 bedroom (the master is a loft bedroom), 2 full baths, non-smoking cabin, and located just 6 miles from Pigeon Forge, on Bluff Mountain, with NO life-threatening access roads to navigate. It features a fully supplied kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, separate stackable washer/dryer and built in microwave.
The master loft has a king sized bed, where you will awake in the morning to the awesome mountain views, along with a gas fireplace, TV plus DVD player, and full, private bathroom. High thread count, Egyptian cotton linens and hotel quality towels are provided. The adjoining loft area with pool table, telescope, and built in counter with bar stools, also shares the expansive views of the mountains.
The first floor great room features a stone stacked gas fireplace with cable TV, DVD and Sonos Sound System, a queen sleeper sofa, additional seating to include a rocker and glider and separate dining area. The enclosed bedroom has a queen bed and cable TV. ALL TV’s have their own separate cable boxes.
Your entertainment options also include assorted DVD’s, books, and board games. The ceiling fans located in the living room, loft bedroom and enclosed bedroom provide added comfort at your fingertips.
We currently live in Nashville Tennessee and love to spend time in the mountains at our favorite getaway - Simple Pleasures. In fact we spent our own honeymoon there just this past spring! We both love to travel and have been to Peru, Norway, Russia, Brazil, Wales, Japan, France, Germany, the Philippines, to name a few. Whenever possible, we like to stay in places more personal than a generic hotel. We have loved using VRBO & Airbnb to find wonderful places around the world as well as to share our own cabin with other travelers.
Tom & Allison Luck purchased this cabin in 2015
We have been vacationing in the Smoky Mountains for years and decided it was finally time to purchase our own special place. We began our search over the Christmas 2014 - New Year 2015 Holidays, expecting to spend the next couple of years locating the perfect cabin. We were amazed that the very first cabin we viewed, we fell in love with! Our "Simple Pleasures" has amazing views, easy access to the trails in the National Park, stores & venues, and Knoxville. The cabin itself was very well maintained and had all the amenities we wanted.
Our panoramic view of the Great Smoky Mountain Park & Mt. LaConte sets Simple Pleasures apart! Nothing beats sitting on the porch swing, in the loft or hot tub watching the sunrise or nightly Pigeon Forge fireworks display. Simple Pleasures is secluded and very private, yet still a short easy drive to all of the attractions and shopping in Pigeon Forge.
We were so impressed by this amazing cabin! The view is incredible! The owners have paid so much attention to each detail, like spices in the kitchen, condiments in the fridge, and games in the loft. We stayed 5 nights. With all the fun things to do in Pigeon Forge and the surrounding area, we still chose to just enjoy the cabin two of the days. It was so nice, I wish we had spent even more time in the cabin. The jacuzzi, pool table and covered deck were so relaxing. The one minor issue we had, the owner responded to quickly and did his best to address. This cabin far exceeded our expectations and I would love to stay here again. I highly recommend staying here!
This was a return to normal for us. We stayed in another cabin in Gatlinburg for New Year's week and it was just not the same. This time we returned for two weeks in the summer and it was just as amazing as it always has been. We've stayed at Simple Pleasures many times now and it really feels like home to us while we're there. The view is just beautiful and second to none, I never get tired of it. The cabin is always clean and just the right amount of space for us (family of 4). We have one boy and one girl (both teens) so that means one of them gets the couch, but they deal with it. My favorite thing about this cabin is the seclusion. Yes, there are other cabins around, but they are rarely occupied and when they are we really don't hear anything from them. I would say my least favorite thing is the drive up and down the mountain any time we want to do something - but it's totally worth it in the end for the peace and quiet you get after spending the day around traffic and tourists in the Pigeon Forge area. One "pro-tip" I would suggest: If you want to zip-line, call Wahoo Ziplines (first in the area) and tell them you're in a local cabin and they will knock half off the price per person! Thanks to Tom and Allison for allowing us another two-week getaway in their cabin!
We stayed here for the end of Spring Break, 2 kids and 2 adults. We had plenty of room. I've rented in this area many times, and this cabin has one of the most amazing views I've ever seen. We had no troubles during the rental process and the cabin is exceptionally clean. I will definitely rent here again. Loved it!
We stayed in this beautiful cabin for five days in mid-January and it was even more beautiful than the photos portray. The comfort, cleanliness and amenities of the cabin itself were excellent. The views from the porch, hot tub and even from each interior room were incredible. The combination of seclusion with its proximity to all of the tourist attractions is unbeatable. We were here for the opportunity to explore the beauty of the Smokey Mountain hiking trails and we weren’t disappointed. So many hiking trails and scenic drives are easily accessible from this storybook location. And as if all of that weren’t enough, the owners were incredibly helpful and delightful to deal with. We will be back again. And again.
We only stayed for one night but wished we could've stayed longer. The views were beautiful and the hot tub hot! It was one of the highest cabins on the mountain so the views from the porch were spectacular. Being one of the few cabins on the mountain, privacy was a nonissue. Despite being secluded from other cabins, it was just a short drive from the base of the mountain to get to civilization where there was plenty to do and see. I can't wait to come back soon!
My wife and I had a great stay for our anniversary getaway! The cabin is just as the pictures show, maybe even better. Owners Tom and Allison do a great job with upkeep. Tom was quick to address a minor issue with a door knob not working. There is only one more cabin just past Simple Pleasures so it’s very private and quiet. We definitely would stay again and have already recommended it to friends. The kitchen is very well stocked with most anything you would need. We look forward to returning to Simple Pleasures for our next trip to the Smokies!
