Take in the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains from Closer to Home, a 4-bedroom, 4-bath retreat with green-canopy views overlooking more than 40 acres of native trees, and a feeling of total seclusion just 10 minutes from restaurants, museums and family-friendly activities.
When you book your stay at this cabin, you receive free admission to popular Smoky Mountain attractions with Xplorie. This program entitles our guests to one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like Dollywood, Ripley’s Aquarium, the Smoky Mountain Opry, Dolly’s Stampede, the Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show, and more.
A modern cabin with cathedral ceilings, log beams, hardwood floors and wood-paneled walls, Closer to Home has the ambiance of a rustic lodge. Ideal for large families, groups of friends or even corporate retreats, this two-level home offers multiple living spaces decks, a furnished deck on each level, and accommodations for up to 14 guests.
An open floor plan on the main level creates a seamless flow between the great room, kitchen and dining area, with natural light flooding the space through floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors, which lead to an expansive, wrap-around deck. In the great room, a full-length leather sofa offers a front-row seat to the large-screen TV, while two cozy armchairs invite you to curl up by the stacked-stone fireplace.
The adjacent 10-seat dining table offers dinner with a view, overlooking the deck and mountains beyond through a wall of glass. You’ll find three additional seats at the kitchen breakfast bar. Fully equipped with modern appliances, granite countertops and a spacious island, the kitchen is sure to inspire home-cooked meals. A charcoal grill on the front porch will broaden your menu, while two log picnic tables -- one on the upper deck and one in the front yard -- invite you to dine al fresco.
On the lower level, a second living area offers evening entertainment with two plush sofas, a second fireplace, and a flat-screen TV with cable. Sharpen your pool game on the full-sized table or bring your favorite board games to enjoy a screen-free night around the card table.
Several rocking chairs line the upper and lower decks, including just two outside each bedroom, offering a quiet place to sip coffee on a summer morning or an apres-ski cocktail on a blue-bird day. All four bedrooms, two on each level, offer private deck access through glass doors for brilliant light and big views.
All bedrooms also feature a ceiling fan, high-definition TV, en-suite bath and ample storage. Two master suites feature king-sized beds, while the guest bedrooms each have two queen-sized beds, sleeping four in each room. A queen sleeper sofa offers additional accommodations for two.
As a guest of Closer to Home, you’ll also enjoy the convenience of a private washer and dryer, and a private, over-sized hot tub on the lower deck with room for up to six people. You’ll also have access to the amenities of Black Bear Falls Log Home Community, including a clubhouse with heated adult and children’s swimming pools, available for summer use. After a swim, lounge on a poolside chaise or retreat from the sun at a table on the covered patio.
