The name of this two-bedroom home, Somewhere a Place for Us, refers to a song from West Side Story—but staying here you’ll feel far removed from the West Side of Manhattan, and from the everyday hustle and bustle in general. Set on a large grassy lot, the back portion of which is lush with towering trees, this is a place for relaxing among the mountain breeze, pampering yourself with soaks in a jetted tub, and enjoying simple pleasures—games of foosball, listening to songbirds, dining outdoors—with family and friends.
You could easily while away entire days on the huge wraparound deck. Bring your morning coffee outside, kick back in a rocker, and listen to wrens and sparrows greet the day. Savor a leisurely lunch at the patio table, cook kabobs—or fish you reeled in yourself from a nearby stream—on the gas grill, or unwind out here with a nightcap as crickets and whip-poor-wills serenade you.
Somewhere a Place for Us is just as restful indoors. With its large picture windows and cathedral ceiling, the great room is airy and bright. Sunshine accentuates the luster of the wood-planked floor, walls, and ceiling; in winter the flames from the stone-surround fireplace will bathe the room in a golden glow. Stretch out on the plush sofa to watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable, curl up in the leather armchair with your tablet and surf the web via the free Wi-Fi, or cozy up in the wooden rocking chair with a favorite book.
If you don’t want to eat out on the deck, or at the picnic table in the shady yard, gather at the great room’s round dining table, which can seat up to 6 people. Because it’s just a few steps from the open, spacious kitchen, serving is a snap. So is cooking—the kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances, cookware, gadgets, and tableware you could possibly need, along with generous counter space.
For fun and games, head upstairs to the loft. The game area, which overlooks the great room, includes an air-hockey table and a PlayStation 3. What’s more, you can walk through the upstairs master bedroom to the screened-in porch, where you’ll find the foosball table. The porch also houses a hot tub/spa; gazing up at the sky while you soak, you’ll feel as if you’re in a very deluxe treehouse, eye level with the birds.
Somewhere a Place for Us has 2 master bedrooms and bathrooms, one on each floor. Each bedroom includes a king-size bed, a TV, ample storage and delightfully rustic decor. While the upstairs suite opens onto the porch with the hot tub/spa, the downstairs bathroom has its own jetted tub. And if you have additional guests, the great room’s sofa converts into a queen-size bed, so that the home can sleep up to six people in all.
Given how quiet and bucolic the surroundings are, you’ll be surprised by how close Somewhere a Place for Us is to the numerous local attractions. Just 15 minutes away is Waldens Creek Stables, where you can ride horses and fish in a large stocked pond. In 20 minutes you can be hiking and biking among the wildflowers, wildlife, and waterfalls of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Just as close is the Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to the Titanic Museum, a huge Tanger outlet mall, the WonderWorks educational amusement park, dinner theaters, and more. And Dollywood, Parrot Mountain and Gardens, and Gatlinburg Golf Course are all just 25 minutes away.
When you stay at Somewhere a Place for Us, you’re close to everything that Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have to offer, yet you’re also surrounded by the serenity of country living. It’s really the best of all worlds—and don’t you deserve the best? So book your stay today; we’re looking forward to seeing you.
