Just over a mile from Douglas Lake, A Honey Cove is an idyllic retreat, especially if boating and fishing are essential to your dream vacation. Even if you don’t spend time on the water, though, you and the rest of the family will enjoy your stay in the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom cabin, thanks in part to its hot tub, pool table, media room, and other amenities.
A Honey Cove is located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood, and its 2 decks make it easy to revel in nature’s beauty. The deck that wraps around the main floor is furnished with rockers and a swing. Kick back with a book and a drink, take a deep breath of the crisp mountain air, and listen to chickadees chirp in the morning and owls hoot at night. Relaxation is practically guaranteed. There’s also a picnic table and a grill, so that you can cook and dine alfresco.
The lower deck is a private spa of sorts. When you’re not luxuriating in the steamy bubbles of the hot tub, you can unwind in the sauna. After a day of hiking, fishing, skiing, or horseback riding, your tired muscles will really appreciate the pampering.
If inclement weather forces you to cancel your plans for the day, you can still while away the hours in the downstairs game room. When you’re not shooting pool you can challenge the kids to foosball, or you can all sit down at the game table for a rummy marathon. If a movie marathon is more to your liking, sink into the lavish sectional sofa of the media room next to the game room and watch a double feature on the 70” flat-screen with a DVD player. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to head upstairs to the main floor and prep for dinner. A Honey Cove’s kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware. Here’s your chance to try one of those gourmet recipes you never have time for at home. A couple of assistants can sit at the breakfast bar to help with slicing and dicing—or to keep you company while you cook.
There’s room for the whole gang to gather at the dining table, and to nestle in the living room afterward. The stone-surround fireplace makes the living room particularly inviting in winter, though with its sumptuous leather sofas and armchairs, wood-paneled walls, flat-screen TV, and vaulted ceiling, it’s a convivial gathering spot any time of year.
Two of A Honey Cove’s 3 bedrooms are on the main floor; the 3rd makes up the loft. All 3 bedrooms have a private bathroom and a flat-screen TV so that you can watch your favorite late-night shows while sprawled out in bed. The master bedroom includes a king-size bed; the 2nd is furnished with a nearly as luxe queen-size bed. The upstairs bedroom is perfect for the kids: Not only does it have a single bunk bed over a double bed, but it also has plenty of room for them to spread out with their toys and games. If you have additional guests, you can convert one of the couches into a queen-size bed, so that the cabin can accommodate 9 people in all.
You can drive or even walk to Douglas Lake. There are slips and launches nearby if you plan to bring your own boat, or you can drive a bit farther to rent one in season. Also close by is Smoky Mountain Deer Farm Exotic Petting Zoo, where you can feed everything from goats to kangaroos and go horseback riding too, and Forbidden Caverns, with its grottos and underground stream. Dollywood and other Pigeon Forge attractions are just a half-hour’s drive, and you can be hiking or biking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in well under an hour.
The best part of staying at A Honey Cove, though, is the opportunity to spend time with family and friends in a relaxing setting, where you can enjoy the surrounding nature as well as each other’s company. Go ahead and book your stay today, then get ready to make memories that will last a lifetime.Get the full listing »
