Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

A Chance for Romance is a wonderful choice for a honeymoon, an anniversary getaway, or any other trip you want to take with that special someone. From the indoor Jacuzzi—heart-shaped, of course!—to the outdoor hot tub, every aspect of this cozy log cabin is designed to delight and set a romantic mood.

You’ll be charmed as soon as you drive up to A Chance for Romance. Its front porch is home to a pair of cushioned rocking chairs that look out toward the wooded surroundings. Start your day out here with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and listen to the songbirds; end your evening gazing up at the starry sky with the hooting of owls as a soundtrack.

The back deck, which spans the width of the cabin, offers equally stellar views… and more. On the gas grill, you can cook a steak dinner for two or the trout you reeled in earlier that day and then savor it at the deck’s table for two. For dessert, the two of you can indulge in a soak in the deck’s hot tub, surrounded only by trees. Where better to watch the sunset?

Of course, you have to go indoors eventually. The interior of A Chance for Romance is just as inviting as its exterior. A 42” flat-panel TV, with Blu-Ray player, is mounted above the living area’s gas fireplace. Snuggle on the sofa, feet outstretched on the equally comfortable ottoman, as you watch a favorite movie or listen to your favorite music on the stereo system, which includes an iPod docking station and an MP3 player. Or one of you can kick back on the generously cushioned armchair and surf the web. Go ahead--post photos of the day’s adventures on Facebook or Instagram to make your friends back home jealous; we won’t judge!

Downtown Gatlinburg, which is only a 5-minute drive away, offers plenty of dining choices, from steak to seafood to barbecue. Sometimes, though, it’s more relaxing (and romantic!) to eat at home. That’s why the cabin’s kitchen, though compact, is equipped with everything from a full-size fridge/freezer and oven/stove to a microwave and a Keurig brewing system.

The sleeping area includes a log-frame king-size bed and—how fun!—a red heart-shaped Jacuzzi large enough for both of you. There’s also a standard shower in the bathroom, for when you just want to scrub up and get going.

And there’s plenty to explore and enjoy when you stay at A Chance for Romance. As we mentioned, downtown Gatlinburg is mere minutes away; as well as restaurants, it offers plenty of attractions, including an aquarium. What’s more, the cabin is in the midst of the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and craft shops offering everything from stained glass to chainsaw art, custom knives to pottery. And let’s not forget the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its hiking trails, historic cabins, waterfalls, and wildlife ranging from black bears to elk, and Dollywood... Plus, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, you’ll have access to the swimming pool that, like the cabin itself, is part of Mountain Shadows Resort; it’s only a short walk from your cabin.

Outdoor activities, romantic amenities, and nature’s grandeur as far as the eye can see: A Chance for Romance has it all…and more. So why not make it all yours by reserving your getaway today?

The cabin was very cozy, and inviting! Perfect for a weekend getaway with my husband. Close to town and in a quiet area! Will definitely be back!

Good, but should be better.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a nice weekend, and the cabin was worth what we paid. It's very cozy and romantic, and the place was clean. There were a couple of things that really got on my nerves. Let me start with the worst. We didn't arrive until around 8:00 pm, and by that time it's quite dark. There was ZERO lighting on the cabin. The front porch light was out, and the cabin name was not visible until I shined my headlights directly at the plaque. I was just about to get out with my flash light, but then luckily stumbled onto the cabin; only because I noticed it was vacant. I changed the porch light bulb out, and later discovered one of the bed lamps was out. How was I to know there were replacement bulbs under the sink? I shouldn't have to know.

It appears that the dirt cheap latch to the bathroom door broke, and one of the previous tenants damaged the door trying to open it. There was a large knife-like splinter on the edge of the door near the bolt, ( 6 inches ) obviously do to someone breaking in. I repaired the door, mainly because it was obvious your cleaning crew wasn't going to report it, but also because it was a hazard. Your welcome. My last complaint is the dishonesty. This is supposed to be " for rent by owner ". Nothing could be further from the truth. It is for rent through a property management company. No different than any other cabin for rent in the area. Same as Gatlinburg Falls but not as good. Shame on you.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robert for taking the time to review A Chance for Romance. Your input, as well as all our guest feedback is vitally important as we want all guests expectations to be met upon arrival. We sincerely apologies for you arriving to the porch light being out. It is not our goal to have guests arrive in the dark and bulbs can burn out after the cabin has been inspected. Regardless, you do have our apologies. We do have a 24/7 on call service department that would have attended to taking care of any maintenance issue that came up during your stay. Also, there is no intention of dishonesty. On every VRBO listing that appears on www.vrbo.com for all cabins we manage for the owners, the name of our company appears. We are happy that you did enjoy your cozy and romantic weekend. We hope you will choose to stay with us again on your next trip to the Smokies, giving us a chance to exceed all your expectations.
