Description Description
This one bedroom is ideal for a special romantic getaway, you will love it! It’s just a short walk down to the lake and gas firepit area shared by the cabins on location. We have removed the indoor jacuzzi and replaced it with a washer/dryer for your convenience. You still have the hot tub on your deck. Upstairs you'll find the loft bedroom with King size bed. Downstairs is the cozy living room with 55" flat screen tv and gas fireplace (seasonal). Sleeper sofa in case you'd like to bring the kids along. Private hot tub on the deck right outside. Comfortably furnished with brand new furniture just right for a rustic mountain cabin getaway. These cabins were built with hand hewn logs and have withstood the test of time. The remodel has spruced them up and made them look brand new again. Inside everything is new. They retain that rustic feel with the modern touch. Hot tub and rockers on the deck. This unique setting offers you the thrill of being able to walk out the door with hiking boots on, walk right past your car and keep on going for as long as you want to before heading back to relax on your private deck. There are no trails but you are welcome to wander the 135 acres and enjoy the peace and quiet. A rugged hike or a leisurely stroll – your choice. You’re in charge! THE LAKE IS JUST A SHORT WALK DOWN THE COUNTRY LANE - it is not in your backyard but it's very close by. Lakeside firepit area is shared by all the 13 cabins located in the Mountain Lake Resort. March down to the lake and take a stroll around the serene mountain setting watching for the natural wildlife abundant in our area. Just a few yards further and you can enjoy the beautiful, rushing mountain creek. It's lovely. Enjoy a roaring fire in the gas firepit beside the lake. (community location for the resort) And later enjoy a cozy fire in your very own gas fireplace (October - April). Or a soak in your private hot tub on the deck. The fully furnished kitchen will offer the perfect spot for preparing full meals or light snacks to enjoy in your cabin. Whether there are 2 of you or all 4 you will have enough seating at the kitchen table. For those longing for solitude, peace and quiet - this is it! You've found your spot. No next door neighbors, no street with cars passing by, no noise from attractions - just beauty and you and the mountains on 135 gorgeous untouched acres. Thirteen rustic log cabins total - studios, one bedrooms, and two bedrooms. Come and enjoy! We would be delighted to welcome you to this special setting in The Great Smoky Mountains of Gatlinburg, TN. Book now! Please call us with any questions. About 4 miles from this cabin is the beautiful Gatlinburg Community Center - a complex with indoor swimming pool, basketball court, ping pong, bowling alley, weight room and showers. For a very reasonable fee visitors are welcome to take advantage of this beautiful complex. Please check out the website for info.

The place was quaint and comfortable but the bathroom shower needs updating
We enjoyed our stay but the shower’s water pressure was weak and the temperature fluctuated frequently from warm to hot to colder. The tub is unattractive and would benefit from an update. Other than that, we loved it!

Cabin was excellent. It was a surprise for my girlfriend and she was taken away from the moment we drove up and then she saw the inside of the cabin and was talen away. The details in the cabin were so well thought out. Everything was perfect. Beautiful balcony view. Hot tob was perfect. The area felt extremely safe the grounds were pristine. We adventured up the road and found more amazing cabins and even a reception area. I would highly recommend and go back.

We had a great stay. The drive up from the main road wasn't bad at all. Stony Brooks staff checked on us and we're very pleasant. This cabin is located east of Gatlinburg. It worked out well for us because the zip lining and white water rafting we experienced were also east of Gatlinburg.

I liked that they gave Courtesy calls from beginning to end. The cabin was nice and clean. Besides the normal things you would need to bring, the cabin had the basic items you needed. Even had washer and dryer along with extra blankets and a fire escape ladder in one of the drawers. We loved how it was by the water. Very relaxing and not too close to the other nearby cabins.

We had an amazing time staying at the Bear Necessities cabin! Everything was absolutely spotless, and it was such a welcoming and cozy space to stay. We especially appreciated the thoughtful anniversary card that was signed by all of your staff, and the lovely bear figurine in honor of our anniversary that was waiting for us when we arrived. It truly made our stay special. Thank you for that personal touch. In advance of our arrival, I also appreciated all the helpful details in your messages, and the phone call before our stay. I also appreciated the call after we arrived to check and make sure everything was in good order. We will definitely be booking with you all again for future visits!
