Even before you step foot inside Southern Serenity you can see why the 1-bedroom log cabin is ideal for a romantic getaway. Set among leafy tulip trees and lush shrubbery, beside a pond and looking out toward a waterfall, it’s like something out of a storybook.
Thanks to the porch that runs across the front and one side of the cabin, you’ll be able to revel in the delightful view anytime. When you’re not kicking back in one of the rocking chairs (what’s a mountain cabin without a porch rocker?), you can listen to the breeze rustle through the trees while soaking in the outdoor hot tub—how blissful! What’s more, if you’re bringing a four-legged friend along, Southern Serenity has a pet gate so that he or she can enjoy the view along with you.
The inside of Southern Serenity is just as charming as the setting. The burnished wood floor, walls, and vaulted ceiling gleam, especially when illuminated by the golden glow of the stone-surround gas fireplace. The living room’s roll-arm sofa invites you to snuggle as you watch a movie on the HDTV with cable—and not only is there a Blu-ray player, but there’s also a library of movies. Make some popcorn, open a bottle of wine, and enjoy your time alone. Or feel free to invite friends (or the kids) along: The sofa can open into a bed for 2, enabling the cabin to sleep up to 4 people in all.
Despite the bucolic surroundings, Southern Serenity is only a few minutes’ drive from downtown Gatlinburg, where you’ll have a fabulous range of restaurants to choose from. Sometimes, though, it’s even more romantic to dine at home. Fortunately, the kitchen is outfitted with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you could need, whether you’re preparing a full-blown feast or simply whipping up a batch of daiquiris to enjoy out on the porch as you gaze up at the stars.
For a different sort of entertainment, head upstairs to the loft, where you’ll find a full-size billiard table. If you never learned to play, here’s your chance! Between shots you can watch your favorite program on the game room’s TV.
We’ve saved our favorite room of Southern Serenity for last: the bedroom. The king-size bed is so sumptuous, you just might find it tough to leave in the morning. Fortunately, there’s a TV to keep you entertained, as well as free WiFi. When you’re not lounging in bed you can laze in the en-suite bathroom’s jetted tub. No matter how knotted your muscles are after a day of hiking, biking, skiing, or white-water rafting, after a soak, they’re sure to be wonderfully relaxed—and you will be too!
When you arrive at Southern Serenity, you’ll find the bed impeccably made up and plenty of fresh towels and extra bedding waiting for you. For added peace of mind, Southern Serenity is thoroughly cleaned using non-chemical products. Among the cabin’s other conveniences are a dishwasher, a washing machine, and a dryer. These time-savers will free you up to explore everything the area has to offer.
And that’s a lot. For starters, because Southern Serenity is part of the Black Bear Falls community, in the summer you can use its heated adult and children’s swimming pools. What’s more, not only is the cabin close to the attractions of downtown Gatlinburg, which include an aquarium, museums, and mini golf, but it’s also near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, and the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and craft shops.
Of course, you could easily have a memorable stay simply exploring the creeks and ponds surrounding the cabin, relaxing in the hot tub, and savoring the birdsong and fresh mountain air from the porch rocking chairs. Whether you want your getaway to be action-packed or laid-back, Southern Serenity is an idyllic home base. Don’t miss out; make your reservation today!

Perfect Quaint Little Cabin in the PERFECT Vacation Location
I can't say enough about the perfect little getaway we had at Southern Serenity. The cabin had everything we needed, was perfectly clean and so relaxing. You couldn't ask for a better location. You feel away from everything as you sit on the front porch listening to the creek flow below you, but you are conveniently located just minutes away from both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
Overall impression, very lovely cabin.
Cabin was beautiful! We expected a more private area, not that close to other cabins. We also expected a mountain view and we had a wooded view. Sitting and relaxing on the porch, our view was the porch of the cabin across from us and the people in it. My understanding was the cabin would automatically be unlocked when we got there, however it wasn't. We had to call TWICE and speak with someone to give us a correct code to unlock the cabin. The code that was given for the hot tub was also incorrect and we could not use it. We enjoyed playing pool on the pool table upstairs, however it is not in the best condition. The bed downstairs was amazing!! So very comfortable! The setting was beautiful.
Congratulations Jenni on your marriage. We are glad you found the cabin beautiful and very comfortable. Your input, as well as all our guest feedback is vitally important as we want all guests expectations to be met upon arrival. We apologies for falling short on some of your expectations. For the safety of the property, and you as an arriving guest, we do not leave properties unlocked. A unique code is provided for each guest to use during their stay. We are sorry that code did not propagate properly to your guest portal. We do have a 24/7 on call service department and if we would have known you were having trouble with the hot tub lock, we would have sent someone out there to assist with getting the hot tub cover off. Again, thank you for taking the time to share. We look forward to staying with you again on your next trip to the Smokies, giving us the opportunity to exceed all expectations.
Southern Serenity Cottage Rental
The cottage and area were great. We had all the amenities we needed. We were very comfortable. Check in/out was very, very easy and there were plenty of instructions everywhere to help you along. The only small issues I had was that we rented a pet friendly cottage and there was a slight pet odor. That should be expected, I know. However, it was a little strong. Probably from someone staying there with big dogs. I also tried to use the hot tub. It wasn't as warm as bath water and every time I tried to raise the temperature, it would kick back down to 103 degrees. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience and I would certainly go back.
Thank you Thomas for staying with us. We are pleased you found Southern Serenity comfortable and that you had a very pleasant experience. We appreciate your comments and housekeeping will be alerted to the pet oder smell. We do have a 24/7 on call service department and if known, we would have sent someone out to reset the hot tub. Again, thank you for sharing and we look forward to having you stay with us again on your next trip to the Smokies.
