About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

An absolutely charming log cabin, Beyond the Pond, has it all: a peaceful setting alongside a mountain pond fed by cascading waters yet just a 5-minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg; cozy rustic furnishings along with high-end amenities such as an outdoor hot tub, an indoor jetted tub, and a pool table. It just may be the home base for your best vacation ever!

The cabin’s front porch looks out directly onto the pond. The burble of the waters tumbling over the rocks is an ideal accompaniment to the chirping of the chickadees, warblers, and sparrows that nest among the towering treetops during the day and the hooting of owls at night. Start your day with a cup of coffee in one of the porch rocking chairs; end it under the stars with a lazy soak in the deck’s hot tub.

The relaxing ambiance continues indoors. Amid the vaulted ceiling and the glowing wood walls and floors, the great room is furnished in classic cabin style. Stretch out on the generously cushioned sofa to watch cable TV, or curl up with that book you’ve been wanting to read but haven’t had time to—until now! The sofa, by the way, opens into a bed for 2, so that Beyond the Pond can sleep 4 people in all. Set within a stone surround, the gas fireplace will warm up the room beautifully on chilly winter evenings… as well as create the perfect romantic mood.

Adjacent to the living area is a dining table that looks out onto the pond and seats 4 people comfortably. The table is also the perfect size for a spirited game of Monopoly or Scrabble—that is if you can tear yourself away from the pool table in the loft’s game room. You may find yourself hoping for a rainy day just so you can spend it indoors practicing your skills. No need to wait for inclement weather, though: You’re on vacation, so feel free to spend your time however you want!

The kitchen comes with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you need, whether you plan to create gourmet meals or simply microwave leftovers from the previous evening’s restaurant dinner. There’s a dishwasher too and, for even more convenience, a washer and dryer. Now you can pack light enough for just a carry-on bag… and even be able to return home with a suitcase full of clean clothes.

Catching up on sleep is a key part of many people’s dream vacation. Beyond the Pond’s bedroom makes it easy, with a sumptuous king-size bed, cable TV, a DVD player, and a ceiling fan to lull you to sleep. When you arrive, the bed will already be made, so you can even take a nap before you unpack your luggage!

Perhaps the most luxurious feature of the master suite is the jetted tub. No matter how tired your muscles are from the day’s adventures, a soak among the pulsing streams will loosen them up and rejuvenate your entire being—but don’t take our word for it; see for yourself!

Beyond the Pond is part of the 43-acre Black Bear Falls Log Home Community, so when you stay here you can take advantage of the resort’s 2 heated swimming pools, one of which is a kiddie pool, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The pools and the community clubhouse are just a short walk from the cabin—how convenient is that?

In fact, Beyond the Pond’s location is the ultimate in convenience. You can drive to the restaurants, shops, and amusements of downtown Gatlinburg in only 5 minutes and to Rocky Top Sports World in less than 10. Also a quick drive away is the entry to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its hiking trails, waterfalls, wildflowers, and historic cabins; just slightly farther afield is Dollywood and the other attractions of Pigeon Forge.

There’s so much more to see and savor when you stay at Beyond the Pond—too much for us to be able to detail here. You’ll just have to experience it for yourself… so go ahead and book your stay today!

Pretty good

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin, driveway is tricky, it’s a steep incline which I didn’t see prior to reserving but noticed afterwards. The bed was super hard for my liking but everyone differs on bed types. Overall good experience

Relaxing Haven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the cabin! A truly beautiful setting overlooking the pond, so relaxing and peaceful. The king size bed and hot tub were a definite treat! Everything we could possibly need was provided - towels, soap, laundry detergent, all the basic kitchen needs - even some coffee! The location was wonderful - just 5 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. We drove in from Asheville and loved not having to drive through downtown to get to the cabin, it was very convenient to grocery stores, gas and restaurants. We took advantage of all the cabin had to offer and will definitely come back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin! Small and cozy and absolutely perfect for me and my boyfriend. We were there for the eclipse and it was so close to downtown gatlinburg, it only took us about 7 minutes (literally) to get down the mountain and into the heart of town. Would definitely recommend!

It was a great cabin and we had great time

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean and had everything that we needed .It would be even better if we could use more comfortable seats on the porch.The lights in the hot tub did not work , but other than that we loved it. We loved the area where the cabin is , just walking around such nice houses was a delightful time. 5 min from downtown Gatlingburg .
