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.

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.

For adventures beyond your mountaintop perch, take advantage of ample parking to explore the surrounding area, including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Guinness World Records Adventure, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster, mini golf, family-friendly restaurants and more, all within a 15-minute drive. Dollywood and the Gatlinburg Golf Course are 20 minutes away.

With the convenient location, breathtaking and flexibility for groups, Closer to Home is an ideal retreat for guests looking to slow down and reconnect with family, friends or colleagues and a place that feels just like home.

When I would call the office they were very nice and helpful. The cabin was very nice. The hot tub was not working we called and they had some one quickly to fix it. All 10 had a great time.

Excellent cabin

Loved this cabin, fantastic views! Very clean and well stocked. We had a great time here. 15 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg but still had quiet mountain charm. Staff was helpful answering any questions that I had. Definitely would book again.
