Secret Romance lets you experience both the serenity of the mountains and the convenience of being close to shops and attractions. The 2-bedroom log cabin is located on a private wooded lot away from busy roads, yet it’s less than a mile from Rocky Top Sports World and less than 15 minutes to downtown Gatlinburg.

The 2-story cabin itself is the ideal marriage of rustic charm and 5-star luxury. The hardwood floors, wood-planked walls, beamed ceilings, and log-style furnishings are just what you’d expect from a mountain hideaway. The same is true of the 2 covered decks, which span the width of the home. As you kick back on the deck rocking chairs, listening to wrens and warblers while the fresh breeze rustles through the trees, you’ll feel at one with nature. You can also revel in the natural beauty while soaking in the upper deck’s hot tub. It’s especially magical at night: Lazing among the steamy bubbles as you gaze up at the star-studded sky is an experience you’ll long treasure.

More luxuries can be found inside Secret Romance. The upstairs game room, for instance, includes a regulation-size pool table, foosball table, and Arcade, along with a flat-panel TV. The upstairs bathroom has a jetted tub with a view nearly as stunning as that of the outdoor hot tub. A private soak in the spa-like bathroom after a day on the go just might be the greatest luxury of all!

Window-lined walls and a towering cathedral ceiling endow both the game room and the main floor’s great room with gorgeous scenery, plenty of sunlight, and an airy, open ambiance. Whether you’re sprawled out on the great room’s sofa watching a movie on the flat-screen TV, playing a game with the kids at the dining table, or enjoying an après-ski drink by the stacked-stone fireplace, you’ll feel as if you’re in a deluxe treehouse on your own private slice of paradise.

Given how many restaurants are nearby, you might have planned to eat most of your meals out. But once you see the beautiful view from the dining table and the fabulously equipped kitchen, you’re bound to change your mind. With its sparkling stainless-steel appliances, gleaming countertops, and wealth of storage, the kitchen might spur you to new culinary heights. Fortunately, Secret Romance has free WiFi, so you can surf the web for recipes you never have time to try at home. And if it’s barbecue you crave, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a charcoal grill right outside the cabin.

Both the main floor’s en-suite primary bedroom and the upstairs sleeping area have king-size beds, so you can sprawl out to your heart’s content. Without a door separating it from the game room, the upstairs bedroom will delight the kids. What’s more, the game room’s futon opens into a bed for 2, so that up to 4 people can make the loft their sleeping quarters—every night will feel like a slumber party! The great room’s sofa converts into a queen-size bed as well, so that Secret Romance can sleep 8 people in all.

Though given all there is to see and do nearby, sleep might not be a top priority. Secret Romance is less than a mile from the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and shops. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only a 15-minute drive away; there you can hike among waterfalls, fish for trout (perfect for cooking on the outdoor grill!), go biking or horseback riding… why you could easily spend every day exploring the park! If you did, though, you’d be missing out on the amusements of downtown Gatlinburg, which range from mini golf and thrill rides to an aquarium and the Guinness World Records Museum.

Secret Romance is proof that sometimes you really can have it all. See for yourself: book your stay today—before someone else beats you to it!
