Perfect for a romantic getaway or a vacation with another couple, Fox Den offers plenty of peace and privacy in a lushly wooded setting. At the same time, the pet-friendly cabin is just minutes from the excitement of downtown Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. And if you like to golf, you’ll love that Fox Den is just down the road from the award-winning Bent Creek Golf Course, designed by legendary golfer Gary Player.
Like the golf course, Fox Den is located in Gatlinburg’s private Cobbly Nob neighborhood, which in turn is set within a 1,000-acre resort with 24-hour security. When you stay here, you’ll have free access to the community’s tennis courts and, in the summer, its 2 swimming pools.
In all seasons you’ll be able to soak in Fox Den’s private hot tub, located on the log cabin’s spacious deck. As you luxuriate among the steamy bubbles you can listen to the mountain breeze whisper among the towering trees, and at night you can gaze up at the canopy of stars. It’s a treat for the senses that you’ll never forget.
If you prefer to do your stargazing dry and fully clothed, you have your choice of stretching out on one of the deck’s 2 chaises or sitting at its patio table. The table, which seats 4, also enables you to enjoy your meals outdoors, with the singing of warblers and sparrows as your background music. You can cook outdoors too, on the charcoal grill.
Of course, you can cook and eat indoors as well. Fox Den’s dining table—so beautifully figured and carved it’s a piece of art—seats 4 with room to spare. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, gadgets, and tableware. There’s even a dishwasher—after all, nobody wants to scrub dishes when he or she could be basking in a hot tub instead!
Beamed ceilings, wood-plank walls, live-edge wood tables, and plenty of images of foxes (of course) and other fauna give Fox Den a cozy, welcoming ambience. Nowhere is that vibe more apparent than in the living area. Within a stacked-stone wall is a wood-burning fireplace that will cast the room in a warm, golden glow. Deep, well-cushioned seating invites you to kick back and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, surf the web via the free WiFi, curl up with a book, or simply enjoy a quiet drink with that special someone.
Another spot where you can unwind with that special someone—or treat yourself to some alone time—is in the master bedroom’s spacious whirlpool tub. Even if your muscles ache from an especially strenuous hike, after a lazy soak in the tub you’ll feel both rejuvenated and relaxed… and maybe in the mood for romance as well.
In addition to the whirlpool, the master bedroom includes a king-size bed. The 2nd bedroom, in the loft, features a nearly as luxurious queen-size bed. The upstairs bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom, in which is located a washer and a dryer for extra convenience.
And speaking of convenience, there’s Fox Den’s location, close to all that Gatlinburg has to offer. In just 15 minutes you can be downtown, where you’ll find everything from an aquarium to the Guinness World Records Museum, thrill rides to mini golf. Also nearby are the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and craft shops, and Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area. And don’t forget the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which you can explore by foot, by bike, on horseback, or by car.
When you stay at Fox Den, you’ll be near all the action, yet you’ll feel blissful away from the hubbub. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? So go ahead and book your stay today… before someone else beats you to it!
