2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Idle Days was designed with one thing in mind: total relaxation. The 2-bedroom, the 2-story cabin has its own hot tub and pool table, plus a covered porch outfitted with rockers, a swing, and a picnic table so that you can spend an entire day outdoors reveling in the sunshine, the mountain breeze, and the singing of chickadees and thrushes. But while its location among old-growth trees provides peace and privacy, it’s also just a short walk to swimming pools and only a 5-minute drive to the excitement of downtown Gatlinburg.

The covered porch that wraps around the front and side of the cabin is large enough for the whole gang to congregate. You can cook up hamburgers—or even better, trout you reeled in yourself!—on the charcoal grill then savors it in the cool shade of the porch while gazing out onto the pond and watching birds flit from tree to tree.

The lower level has its own deck and it also houses the hot tub. Should you venture out for a day of skiing, hiking, rafting, or exploring the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, a long soak will unknot your tire muscles afterward. Of course, you can skip the physical activity and still treat yourself to a session in the tub’s steamy, bubbling waters. You’re on vacation—we won’t judge!

The downstairs is also home to the game room. No need to drive into town at night in search of amusement: You can shoot some pool at the game room’s full-size billiard table while watching TV or listening to music on the CD player. Idle Days has a library of books and board games too—there really is entertainment for all ages here!

The main floor’s living room is another great hangout space. The plush roll-arm sofas are so comfortable, once you kick back you might never want to get up again! That’s okay: You can watch your favorite cable channels on the flat-screen TV, surf the web, or stretch out for a nap. In winter the gas fireplace makes the room especially cozy and gives the wood floor, walls, and ceiling a welcoming glow.

The adjacent dining area can also accommodate the entire gang. The long farmhouse table seats 8 people comfortably; after you’ve cleared the dishes, bring out the Scrabble game and settle in for a tournament. Or make some popcorn and head to the living room for a movie, or whip up a batch of daiquiris and sip them out on the porch. So many options!

In addition to a blender for mixing those frosty drinks, the kitchen has plenty of other appliances, from oven/stove and microwave to coffeemaker and toaster. You’ll also find all the cookware and tableware you could possibly need. And because nobody wants to scrub plates while on vacation, Idle Days has a dishwasher too.

When it comes to RnR, a comfortable bedroom is key. Idle Days has 2, one on each floor for maximum privacy if you’re vacationing with another couple. Each bedroom has a king-size bed for sprawling across, a TV, plenty of storage, and direct access to one of the cabin’s 2 full bathrooms. What’s more, a sofa in the living room and the couch in the game room each open into a bed for 2, enabling up to 8 people to stay overnight.

Although Idle Days has just about everything you need to happily while away your vacation, there’s plenty more to do just outside your doorstep. In the summer you can walk to the heated pools—one for adults and one for kids—of the Black Bear Falls Log Home Community. And any time of year you can drive to downtown Gatlinburg in just a few minutes, where you can enjoy miniature golf, an aquarium, and more. And let’s not forget the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the country’s most popular, with its hiking trails, waterfalls, wildlife, and wildflowers.

Sounds like a dream vacation, doesn’t it? Here’s you chance to make it a dream come true: Book your stay at Idle Days today!

                                                            Cabin was wonderful but did not like the parking for two cars.

                                                            Kerry S.

                                                            Cabin was wonderful but did not like the parking and had trouble locking the front door. We had two cars and parking was ok for one car but not two. The second car had to park on a very steep hill and hard for an older person and even a younger person to get in and out of.

                                                            Thank you Kerry for taking the time to review Idle Days. We appreciate you letting us know about your stay.

                                                            Very clean and well located cabin

                                                            Alicia E.

                                                            We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin. It was cute and has some unique touches. The instructions for the door, hot tub, etc were available and easy to understand. I would caution folks who have large vehicles that it takes some maneuvering to get two trucks in and out of the space provided. The location was central to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, which was very nice. Our only dissatisfaction was the quality of the mattresses. They were pretty well worn in. Otherwise, we were super happy with our stay. I would recommend this location for two couples or a family with older kids just because the second bedroom is downstairs.

                                                            Thank you Alicia for taking the time to share your review. Your input, as well as all our guest feedback is vitally important as we want all guests expectations to be met upon arrival. We have passed along your suggestion to the owner. Again, thank you for sharing and we look forward to your next visit with us.

                                                            It was more beautiful than the pictures, plenty of room and very clean.

                                                            Family of 5 enjoyed every minute, including the beautiful and spacious porch. Do not take the black bear advisory lightly as we literally had to stop the pick up to a let a black bear cross our driveway the second evening we were there. Location is in a beautiful, secluded location, but close to Gatlinburg and attractions. We have already started discussing what we'll do when we come back! Also appreciated clear and precise instructions, guidelines and directions prior to, during and at check out. Multiple means of communication/notifications making it very simple and stress free. Loved the app!

                                                            A great family getaway in the mountains.

                                                            We had a great time. Idle Days was the perfect family getaway. From the pool table and the hot tub and the great furniture on the deck, everyone's tastes were met.
