2 days-Roman Holiday room which included 2-person hot tub, big screen TV with movie collection and DVD; Fireplace with wood. This is the room you want. Cost an extra $100 but has the best of all worlds with a fantastic view. Clean cozy, like staying at your rich uncles house. Quiet as a mouse.
Took the hiking trail adjacent to the house. Very strenuous, but good exercise after first day check -in, takes about 1-hour. Unique predetermined and special dishes served for breakfast and diner if you like. Breakfast included, can have in room, recommend you eat dinner there when possible; excellent flavor. Lots of nearby chain restaurants like Ruby Tuesday, Logans etc.
Go to Gatlinburg if you can during the day as many intersting things to see and eat as you can wal the main street. Its about 40 minutes drive.
Near Gatlinburg is also sugarlands horse riding- they have two ranches, one before gatlinburg and one after that are fun and anybody can do as the horses walk a trail that has beautiful mtn views. We did this for about $35/person/hour. An hour is plenty.
Other than that drink some liquor, sit in the hot tub, and fall asleep by the fire.
Not having a schedule is a good thing. By the way, i don't think a clock worked in the whole place-not sure if that was intentional or not. There is a game room upstairs with pool and misc board games if you so desire-never see mention of this.
Elevator is an antique but works. Good thing because my old lady weighs 350 pounds and pretty much collapsed the wooden staircase as splinters were dropping from underneath. Once we got the door closed on the elevator she was fine and i would run up the stairs and pry her out. Another good reason to get the 2-person hot-tub and bring lots of alcohol.
