Romance, relaxation and recreation await when you stay at Tender Moments. The 1-bedroom log cabin is surrounded by more than an acre of woodlands, so you can be sure of peace and privacy. At the same time, it’s just minutes from the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of galleries, studios, and shops, and from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can hike, bike, and ride horses among wildlife, wildflowers, and waterfalls. The restaurants and amusements of downtown Gatlinburg are less than 15 minutes away, and Dollywood is just a 20-minute drive.
Once you step inside the recently refurbished cabin, though, you might be tempted to spend most of your time there—it’s that charming and comfort-filled. With wood-planked walls and ceilings and plenty of windows to let in the fresh mountain breeze and the spectacular views, the interior of Tender Moments is everything you want in a Smoky Mountain cabin. The plush leather sofa is designed for nestling with that special someone as you watch a movie on the large flat-panel TV, play Scrabble at the coffee table, or linger over drinks by the stone-surround gas fireplace.
The dining table is ideal for a romantic dinner for 2, and there’s a breakfast bar where one of you can chop the vegetables while the other prepares the sauce for your gourmet meal… or where one of you can sit and chat while the other mixes up a batch of margaritas. The kitchen has all the appliances, gadgets, pots, pans, and tableware you need. There’s even a dishwasher because there’s nothing romantic about scrubbing plates!
You might want to bring those frosty margaritas out to the back deck. Thanks to the lack of competing lights, you’ll be dazzled by the abundance of stars in the night sky. Of course, the view in the daytime is magnificent too: Towering trees rustle in the breeze as eagles and falcons soar across the seemingly endless skies. Take it all in from the deck chairs or, better yet, from the hot tub. The singing of sparrows in the morning and the calls of owls at night are the perfect musical accompaniment to a languorous soak among the steaming, roiling waters.
You can savor a soak indoor too: The bedroom’s en-suite bathroom has a jetted tub that can fit 2, and it’s positioned beneath a picture window so that you can look out and relish the glorious view. In winter you can heighten the romance courtesy of the cabin’s 2nd gas fireplace, a double-sided one that faces both the bathroom and the bedroom. The bedroom is a true honeymoon suite: fireplace, luxurious king-size bed, flat-panel TV, seating area by a window, a fan hanging from the slanted ceiling…
As well as romantic luxuries, Tender Moments provides plenty of conveniences too. For instance, clean towels and an impeccably made-up bed will be waiting for you when you arrive, so you can leave your own linens at home. In fact, you can pack especially light, as the cabin has a washer and dryer. And should you have guests come over for dinner or drinks, you’ll appreciate the half-bathroom just off the dining area.
And then there’s the location! Because the cabin is equally close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, you’re just minutes away from so much to see and do: golf, an aquarium, white-water rafting, skiing, outlet shopping, fishing, go-karts, zip-lining…
However you decide to spend your days, you’ll love coming back to Tender Moments. Cater to your inner romantic, and make your reservation today!
