Our family alternates beach and mountain vacations every year. We always try to explore new places and then talk about previous year’s stays and what we liked or disliked from each place. From Maggie Valley to beaches on the east coast, and this year Tennessee; we’ve stayed in at least 6 different venues.
This year we had 11 people. 6 of those people were children ages 6 to 16. The cabin we stayed in was well equipped to handle this wide age range. We had a pool table, a video game (arcade) station, and a small home theater with theater seating. There is a large loft on the top level with hot tub outside, family area in the main area and bottom level was were the game room was located. Each level has an outside deck.
The cabin itself was relaxing and offered everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We did have to bring our own toilet paper. If you would like to view the cabin pictures click on this link : Jesse’s Awesome View . It’s near Pigeon Forge and there are so many things to do and see. We hiked in the Smoky Mountains, road a single person roller coaster called Alpine Coaster, that was so fun, and saw a bear on the road coming down from the cabin one day.
The cabin was so far up that I got to do some bird watching from one of the decks. I enjoyed the tree top view and listing to the birds every morning. I drank my coffee, watched the sun come up and waited. I was able to capture the below picture, right from the deck.
We also visited the local pool, which was at the end of the road leading up to the cabin. The cabin owners have passes to the pool so their guest can enjoy a swim. The Honeysuckle Meadows Pool and Deli was a fantastic place to cool off, have a root beer float, or amazing sandwich, while the kids enjoyed the pool. They also let you bring in your own food and drinks!
Overall, we had a successful experience and trip. I would definitely recommend staying here. It provides some solitude, although the cabins are close together.
