Where have 4 bedrooms, 3 fireplaces, 2 huge decks, and a hot tub with a gorgeous view? Holly Berry, a 3-story log cabin that can sleep up to 13 people—and a pet or 2 as well.
Located in the gated Sherwood Forest Resort, Holly Berry is close to all of the area’s must-visit attractions, from Dollywood to the Titanic Museum to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The resort itself, nestled on a ridge, includes an outdoor swimming pool you can use for free in the summer. And year-round you can stroll along its walkways, admiring the lush woodlands and the views of the Smoky Mountains.
You can savor the sights and sounds of the Smokies from the cabin as well, particularly from its covered decks. Enjoy breakfast at the patio table as songbirds greet the day; sip cocktails on the rocking chairs as the sunset bathes the sky in a kaleidoscope of color; cook kabobs on the gas grill as the mountain breeze whispers through the trees. And perhaps best of all, listen to owls, whip-poor-wills, and tree frogs while luxuriating in the deck’s hot tub late at night.
Holly Berry is no less enchanting inside. Wood-planked walls and floors, a beamed cathedral ceiling, large windows, and classic furnishings invite you to kick off your shoes, settle in, and make yourself at home. Both the main floor’s living room and the downstairs den feature fireplaces for cozying up to in winter, large flat-panel TVs, and leather sofas you’ll love sinking into.
Eight people can sit at the main floor’s dining table, and another 2 can sidle up to the adjacent breakfast bar. A breakfast bar is also a handy place for friends or family to help prepare a meal—and once you see Holly Berry’s open, well-equipped kitchen, you’ll likely want to dine in at least some of the time. Stainless-steel appliances, gadgets, cookware, tableware, gleaming counters: The kitchen has it all. There’s even a dishwasher because nobody wants to scrub plates while on vacation.
After dinner, if you’re not relaxing on the deck, watching a favorite TV show, surfing the web, or lazing in the hot tub, head upstairs to shoot some pool on the full-size billiard table. Even if you don’t play, you might want to head up there—the views are stunning. In fact, they just might distract you from your game!
Upstairs is also home to the master suite. This spacious bedroom is reason enough to stay at Holly Berry. Along with a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, and a private bathroom, it includes both a fireplace and a jetted tub. We won’t blame you for wanting to spend hours up here.
The 2nd bedroom, on the main level, includes a comfortable queen-size bed and a flat-screen TV, as does one of the downstairs bedrooms. The 4th bedroom, also downstairs, is perfect for the kids in your group: It features a twin bunk bed over a full-size bed so that 3 people can make it their private clubhouse. What’s more, sofas in the living room and the den convert into beds for 2, should you have additional guests.
A full bathroom is located on each floor, which will make everyone’s morning routine much less hectic. Holly Berry’s other amenities include a washer and dryer (for once you can return from vacation with a suitcase full of clean clothes!), free WiFi, and cable TV. You’ll find the beds perfectly made up when you arrive, along with plenty of clean towels and extra bedding—no need to bring your own.
When you stay at Holly Berry, the living is easy… as it should be when you’re on vacation. So make your reservation today, before someone else beats you to it. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
