Finding accommodations for a large group can be difficult, but Water’s Edge Retreat makes it easy. The 8-bedroom, 8-bath log home can sleep up to 38 people, enough for your next reunion, corporate gathering, or multifamily celebration.
Each of the 8 bedrooms has its own TV with cable and full bathroom. What’s more, each bathroom includes a jetted tub/shower combo. That’s right: After a day of exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, skiing, fishing, golfing, or walking every inch of Dollywood—all of which are just minutes away—you can treat your weary muscles to a rejuvenating soak.
If you’d like friends to join you while you relax among the massaging jets of steamy water, hop into the rear porch’s large hot tub. There’s room for several of you to soak while gazing out at the woodlands and listening to the cheerful burble of the stream down below. Your friends don’t even have to hop into the tub to keep you company: The screened-in porch, which spans the width of Water’s Edge Retreat, has plenty of rockers and benches for the gang to hang out on. In fact, the porch can serve as an additional living room, complete with ceiling fans to keep you cool in summer.
Six of the 8 bedrooms have a luxe king-sized bed and a futon that can open to sleep 2 more, which is so convenient if you’re traveling with little ones. The other 2 bedrooms each have queen-size bunk beds and a futon. If you have a number of older kids in your group, they can all bunk together—every night will be a slumber party!
Located on the top floor, the game room will have you hoping for a rainy day so that you have an excuse to stay inside and do nothing but play. With a billiard table, foosball, and 3 arcade games—plus a TV and a huge sofa for lounging—the game room really does have something to keep everyone happy.
There’s yet another TV in the spacious living/dining area downstairs; it’s mounted on the wall above the electric fireplace (so toasty in winter!). Kick back on the comfortable seating to watch a movie, surf the web, or play 20 Questions with the kids. Or set up the Monopoly board at the large picnic-style dining table.
The kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need to feed a hungry crowd—and just as important, a dishwasher to clean up after them! As well as the indoor dining area, Water’s Edge Retreat has a large picnic table outdoors by the stream; when you’re in a setting as serene as this one, you want to make the most of it by spending time outside every chance you get. Cook up burgers or kabobs on the charcoal grill, then afterward gather around the fire pit to roast marshmallows as the sun sets and the stars begin to fill the night sky.
You could have a fabulously fun vacation without leaving Water’s Edge Retreat, what with its game room, hot tub, gorgeous views, and of course, the pleasure of each other’s company. But there’s, even more, the fun just a short drive away. Because the house is close to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, you have twice as many attractions to choose from. Among the must-sees in Pigeon Forge are Dollywood, the Titanic Museum Attraction, and Parrot Mountain and Gardens, where you can feed the brilliantly plumaged birds. Downtown Gatlinburg features an aquarium and the Guinness World Records Museum among its attractions. Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area offers fun year-round. And no visit to the area is complete without exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park—it’s the country’s most popular national park for a reason!
So make your next gathering your most memorable yet, by booking your stay at Water’s Edge Retreat today. It’s a one-of-a-kind location for a one-of-a-kind vacation!
