Serenity Hill Cabin is a 2BR/2BA, 1,440 SQ. FOOT, LUXURY CABIN on Tranquility Trail in Paradise Landing Resort on Douglas Lake. It's on the outskirts of historic Dandridge (named after Martha Dandridge-Washington, wife of former President George Washington), in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The cabin is at an elevation of 1000'...which means you don't have to drive on any long, steep, treacherous, one lane roads to get to it. In fact, all the roads from I-40 to the cabin (5 miles) are paved and plenty wide. (View of road from cabin)
Here are some current pictures of the cabin, courtesy of one of our great guests (and great photographer), Laura Rood.
The cabin itself is nothing fancy, although the knotty pine walls and hardwood floors add warmth and charm. It just feels like home. You will not see any expensive art work or antiques, and it doesnít have the newest, biggest plasma TV ever made. It's just a comfortable place to relax, enjoy natural surroundings and the fabulous views. You'll see a view from every room - including a beautiful lake view from the kitchen window - and from everywhere on the WRAP-AROUND DECK.
We do have COMFORTABLE, QUALITY FURNISHINGS and ALL THE CONVENIENCES OF HOME. The 2 KING-SIZE BEDS have THICK, TOP-OF-THE-LINE MATTRESSES and the 2 QUEEN-SIZE SOFA/SLEEPERS are big and roomy without even opening them up, in case you just want to snuggle with your honey in front of the STACKED-STONE FIREPLACE.
The 4 TVís (living room, game room, and both bedrooms) have DIRECTV SATELLITE PROGRAMMING, including LOCAL CHANNELS. There are also 2 DVD/VCR players and 2 STEREO SYSTEMS WITH CD CHANGERS. The game room is equipped with AIR HOCKEY, FOOSBALL, and ELECTRONIC DARTS, and also a PLAYSTATION 2 (we have a few games, but you might want to bring your favorites).
Donít bring a ton of clothes. Use the WASHER/DRYER. We provide the laundry detergent, softener, and paper products, in addition to all the linens and towels you will need for your entire stay.
The kitchen has EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO COOK JUST ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT.
There is even a GARBAGE DISPOSAL, in addition to a big, SIDE-BY-SIDE
REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER with an ICE/WATER DISPENSER, state-of-the-art MICROWAVE,
STOVE/OVEN, and DISHWASHER (soap provided, of course). The
cookware is designed...hey, you know what? I can barely boil water. What do I know about
cookware? Why don't I let someone that knows what she's talking about
explain the details. This is in the words of one of our treasured guests:
Thank you very much, Chizmadia family. It will be a pleasure having you as neighbors someday!
Now, a word of CAUTION:
If your idea of a great Smoky Mountain vacation is non-stop action in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, then Serenity Hill Cabin is probably not for you. But if you're looking forward to a relaxing vacation, and maybe spend a day or two at PIGEON FORGE and GATLINBURG, and don't mind driving 45 minutes of curvy, winding roads and seeing scenes like these along the way...
then Serenity Hill Cabin may be just the ticket! BRING YOUR BOAT, or RENT A PONTOON OR JET SKIS and spend some time on the water. Maybe spend a day at the KNOXVILLE ZOO. Catch a SATURDAY NIGHT RACE AT BRISTOL. Spend another day EXPLORING CAVES and maybe go WHITE-WATER RAFTING. Cruise to ASHEVILLE and/or CHEROKEE (beautiful drive!). All these places are within an hour (except for Asheville -- 1 hour 15 minutes, and Bristol -- 1 1/2 hours)
Or, DON'T GO ANYWHERE! Some of our guests have a hard time getting out to see the sights. Look what our friends, the Pryors, wrote:
We've seen a couple of GREAT storms here ourselves! Luckily, we never lost electricity. On a final note:
Serenity Hill Cabin is located 5 miles from exit 424 on I-40. From the cabin, it is:
