**The Hot Tub is currently Out of Order**

Don’t be fooled by the name of this cabin. Although it’s called African Safari, the one-bedroom, one-level log home is the essence of mountain-cabin charm. And with amenities such as a pool table, an outdoor hot tub and access to an indoor heated pool year-round, it provides plenty of luxuries as well.

African Safari is located in the Hidden Springs Resort, less than 10 minutes from Dollywood and Parrot Mountain and Gardens. Within 15 minutes, you can drive to even more attractions, including the Titanic Museum, the Cal Ripken Experience, Blake Jones Racing Center, Gatlinburg Golf Course, dinner theaters, restaurants and more. Another advantage of the resort is its indoor heated pool, where you can swim come rain, snow or shine.

When you’re not swimming in the pool or hitting the local hot spots, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in African Safari itself. The great room, for instance, includes a pool table and an electronic dartboard to get into the competitive spirit. For more laid-back entertainment, relax in one of the two recliners or stretch out on the leather sofa and watch a movie on the 32-inch TV with cable and a DVD player. In winter, the glow of the gas log fireplace makes the wood-planked floors, walls and vaulted ceiling even more inviting. In summer, the ceiling fan adds a refreshing breeze. The large wall of windows looking out toward the lush woodlands encourages daydreaming any time of year.

You can also head out to the large covered deck to revel in the sights and sounds of the setting. The deck is furnished with classic rocking chairs so you can kick back amid the breeze in timeless Smoky Mountain fashion. For a more pampering experience, gaze out at the sun-dappled trees or the star-speckled sky from the steamy bubbles of the deck’s four-person hot tub. A long soak feels especially rejuvenating after a day of hiking in the nearby Great Smoky Mountains National Park or skiing at Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area.

The deck includes a dining table so that you can enjoy meals alfresco. After all, the fresh mountain air makes even the simplest meal seem like a feast. Of course, there’s another table for four inside as well. Likewise, in addition to a charcoal grill outside, African Safari has a fully equipped kitchen indoors. Here, you’ll find all the appliances, gadgets, cookware and tableware you need, from a full-size refrigerator to a blender to a dishwasher.

The crowning glory of African Safari is its primary suite. The perfect intimate retreat, it includes a king-size bed, a gas fireplace, a TV, a private bathroom and perhaps best of all, a jetted tub. The bedroom also opens onto the deck, so you can savor a nightcap in the silvery moonlight before indulging in a restorative soak before nestling under the covers. Even if you don’t turn on the fireplace, romance will no doubt be in the air!

If you have additional guests staying with you, the sofa in the great room accommodates two, and there’s a full bathroom nearby for added convenience!

You can pack light when you stay at African Safari. We’ll provide all the clean towels and linens you could possibly need. In fact, the king-size bed will be impeccably made up by the time you arrive, so you can sprawl out for a nap before you even unpack. What’s more, the cabin has its own washer and dryer. For once you can return from vacation without immediately having to do laundry!

The living is easy at African Safari—and isn’t that what a vacation is all about? So book your stay today. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

The community location is great, however, the cabin had ants that were not addressed during our stay. Kitchen supplies were limited and the TV was an old tube TV. The cabin needs some updating as well as fixing the hot tub. The layout of the cabin is great for a family with the pool table and large back porch.
