Oak Haven Resort-Gatlinburg TN

by Kay~Kacey on 9/26/2011

We stayed at an amazing resort full of fabulous cabins in the mountains outside of Gatlinburg. We stayed in them on our way out to the east coast for our vacation…we liked them so much, that we stayed two more nights at them on the way home.

Our cabin on the first night was wonderful. Look at this fabulous view of the Smoky Mountains! It had a fabulous wrap around porch with one side of it screened in with a hot tub.

hot tub on porchYes, a view of the mountains right from the hot tub. :heart:

Oh, and this cabin had a game room downstairs where SuperGuy proceeded to beat me at pool. Again and again. But I had fun letting him win 😉

Okay, if that cabin wasn’t fabulous enough…enter the cabin we stayed at for two nights on our return home…Tara in the Smokies…

Tara in the SmokiesReally, this cabin was fabulous and the owner did not miss a trick in the decorating to the Gone with the Wind theme!

Scarlett Ohara painting on the stairway Oh, and the hand carved Gone with the Wind checker board in one on the guest rooms.

We went and saw Gatlinburg for an afternoon because I’d never been there. Okay, been there, done that now. We also poked around the Arts & Crafts area and saw some of the local made art. That was fun. Then we came back to just sit and stare at the mountains. view of the Smoky Mountains Gatlinburg TN

We’ll some of us stared at the mountains and some of us….

resting on the porchdecided it was time for a little nap… 😉

The last morning we woke up to the fabulous sunrise!

So, if you’re looking for a great, reasonable, very clean place to stay near Gatlinburg or Pidgeon Forge…look into Oak Haven Resort. But I’m warning you…bring your camera!

(I took off one of the sidebars on my blog, so in the future I can upload bigger photos. Let me know if the site looks wonky to you. Hope I got it all adjusted correctly!)

That is amazing! I want to be in that tub NOW. With some champagne. Yes, that would be perfect.

Beautiful! Did you go to Arrowmont? That was founded by friends of our family…

Looks like the same area as the 4TLOF get together last year. I was a bit disappointed I didn’t see a bear. ;-P

My mom used to work there, and she swears up and down that the Gone with the Wind cabin is haunted? Did you notice anything? My husband and I are coming from Louisiana to spend our 1st wedding anniversary at Oak Haven. Im so excited.
