HearthSide at the Preserve is your cozy and well stocked cabin home away from home nestled in the heart of the Smoky Mountains!
One of the unique things about planning a trip is finding proper accommodations. When I look for lodging for our family, I always try to find just the right place. I take all of our wants and desires into consideration when looking for lodging.
For my teen, her requests are simple. They are:
- Pool and/or Hot Tub
Seriously, that’s all she wants and she’s happy!
My youngest is simple, she just wants to go! My husband and I have lists that are a bit more involved. Since we are non-smokers and I have allergies like mad, we always look for the following:
- Non-smoking rooms
- Pool and/or Hot Tub
- Exercise Room (when I am in the mood to work out)
- General proximity to where we are visiting
- Recommendations on Trip Advisor
- Recommendation by the local CVB and if they would stay there
- Free Breakfast and/or snacks or dinner
- Pets allowed (on the occasion we are bringing our dogs)
Those are too hard right? Sometimes you would be amazed! Before I started blogging, we would go based just on Trip Advisor and other travel sites. Now that I have a little more experience in planning a trip, I always, ALWAYS consult with the local CVB for suggestions! Believe me they will never steer you wrong.
While planning our multi-family trip, I contacted the Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism. Even though we have been to the area many times, this time is different as we are looking somewhere that would work for ALL of the families! We had thought about hotel rooms, however, we really wanted our kids to play together! When I spoke with Tom Adkinson with the PF Dept of Tourism, he suggested the HeathSide at the Preserve!
After checking out the website and conferring with the two other families, we knew this was the place for our trip! All three families will have plenty of room in one of their gorgeous cabins! That way we can visit, let the kids play together, have plenty of room to unwind after an adventure and memory filled day and enjoy some breathtaking scenery.
First let’s talk about the scenery that will be awaiting us on our visit. HearthSide at the Perserve has a webcam that is pointed to the Great Smoky Mountains! You can click here to go directly to the webcam! One of the things that draws us back to the Smokies each year is the scenic views of the mountains. The view is ever changing, breathtaking, and simply amazing!
Next, let’s talk about Hearthside at the Preserve. The cabins are your home away from home! I am loving the pictures of our cabin! We are staying in the Essence of the Smokies! I can’t wait to actually get there! The cabins are fully stocked! You will find a full kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sheets and towels. And of course the basics of fridge, stove, coffeepot, dishes, utensils, pots/pans. We will need to bring our own body washes, hair products, hair styling needs, etc. Which when we travel, I always bring so that is not a problem!
Our cabin will also be equipped with :
- Indoor Jacuzzi
- Hot Tub
- Pool Table
- Grill (Charcoal)
- Cable TV
- Rocking Chairs
- Washer & Dryer
- Big Screen TV
- NOT pet-friendly
- More than one TV
- Fireplace: Electric
- View: Mountain
- Location: HearthSide at the Preserve
- Air Hockey or Foosball
- Internet Access
All of the families are very excited about this trip! Have you stayed in a cabin before? This will be the first time we have. We have stayed in hotel rooms before as well as a condo.
