Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

A stay at Saddle Ridge means fun for the whole family—and that includes the four-legged members too, as the cabin is pet-friendly. Located in the popular Black Bear Falls community, the 2-bedroom log cabin includes amenities ranging from a multigame arcade table to an outdoor hot tub to free pool access in the summer. Just as important, it’s only minutes to restaurants, shops, golf, hiking, skiing, fishing, amusement parks, and more.

As you drive up to Saddle Ridge, the first thing you’ll note is how gorgeous its surroundings are. The property itself is impeccably landscaped, and the views of the woods and the Great Smoky Mountains are breathtaking.

The cabin’s decks allow you to make the most of the vistas and the fresh mountain breezes. The main-level deck, which wraps around the front and side of the home, is furnished with comfortable Adirondack chairs, a bench, and a porch swing, and there’s more than enough room for everyone to hang out. Part of the deck is covered so that you can relish the sights and sounds rain or shine.

You can even cook and eat outdoors too, thanks to the charcoal grill and the picnic table. If you managed to reel in some trout or bass from one of the nearby streams, it’ll taste fantastic cooked on the grill… but so will hamburgers and kabobs!

The lower-level deck offers one more way to soak up the beauty of the setting: an outdoor hot tub. Lazing among the steamy bubbles while gazing up at the stars is a glorious way to end the day!

The downstairs deck opens onto the game room. There really is something for everyone here. Adults can practice their shots at the custom-built pool table while the kids play Donkey Kong and Pac-Man at the arcade table, and everyone will enjoy watching the flat-panel TV.

The main living area upstairs has its own flat-screen TV (no arguments over what to watch!). Decorated in relaxed rustic refinement, this room is warmly welcoming—especially in winter, when the gas fireplace casts a golden glow over the wood walls. Large windows let the sunshine stream in, and the cathedral ceiling adds to the open, airy ambiance.

Should you tire of grilling and eating outdoors, you can get cooking in the cabin’s kitchen, which is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware, and enjoy at family meal at the log dining table. It’s indoors, but you can still look out at that gorgeous view!

Each of Saddle Ridge’s 2 floors has its own master bedroom, full-size bath, and sofa bed (one in the living room, the other in the game room). This makes the cabin as well suited for 2 couples or even 2 families as it is for a larger family. Both spacious bedrooms include a log-frame king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, and a ceiling fan (its gentle whirr is a lovely lullaby). The main-floor bedroom does have an addition perk, though: a jetted tub, perfect for some quality “me” time.

While there’s plenty to do at Saddle Ridge itself, even more fun is just a short drive away. In the summer there’s free access to the Black Bear Falls heated pools, one for kids and another for adults. You’re also just a 5-minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg, home to distilleries, an aquarium, mini golf, restaurants, and more. Also nearby is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can hike, bike, fish, ride horses, or explore by car. And don’t forget the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and crafts shops.

When you stay at Saddle Ridge, your vacation can be as action-packed or as laid-back as you like—that’s the beauty of this amenity-packed cabin. So what are you waiting for? Make your reservation today, and start planning how you’ll spend your stay.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We go to East TN every year and this was one of our favorite cabins. It is in a prime location in Gatlinburg and a stones throw from the Arts and Crafts district. The drive up to the cabin is easy and not steep. The cabin itself is very clean and has everything you could need. We really enjoyed the pool table, hot tub and the retro arcade game machine. The views from the front porch are beautiful, I loved watching the sun set over the mountains every evening. We often don't repeat cabins as we like to experience lots of different areas, but we would repeat this one!

Amazing cabin. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife went here for our honeymoon. The cabin was great. I downloaded the app, which was very useful. It had all codes and info we needed. Everything was clean and coming and going was super easy. Less than 10 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg, and even closer to local grocery store. Gatlinburg was a great vacation spot.

Lovely little cabin

  • 4 of 5

Excellent stay in an excellent location. Our only regret was that we didn't book a couple more days. One note for the staff would be that if the porches and outdoor furniture were hosed down it would have been nice.

Great for fun, but not for sleeping

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is very nice and clean overall. However, the mattresses are extremely uncomfortable and the sheets are very rough. Also had a couple small blood stains on one set of sheets (yuck!) and when I called for them to replace them they just brought more for me to do myself rather than making it for me while we were out (they dropped them off when we were gone). The only other issue we had was during a pretty big storm, water was coming in through the front door and they did not fix it while we were there. All that said, the arcade game was great and loved by all and the pool table and hot tub were also a big hit. If they get better mattresses and sheets then this place would be nice.
