Head just steps to reach the neighborhood pond and relax by the water in the aftenoon, then return home for moonlit evenings and watch the fireflies illuminate the yard space. Charming decor, comfortable furnishings, and a decorative stone-framed fireplace welcome you into the living room. During your downtime, unwind with favorite shows or movies on the flat-screen cable TV with Hulu streaming! The spacious, fully equipped kitchen features everything you'll need for home-cooked meals including stainless steel appliances and ample counter space. While the group's chef prepares dinner, sip tasty refreshments in the sitting area that opens freely to the kitchen. Set the formal dining table to share your gourmet feast, or step outside on a sunny day and fire up the grill for a family barbecue. The covered deck with rocking chairs is an ideal spot to watch the sunset as it dips below the mountain horizon. Stay outside by the fire pit and experience the vastness of the night sky as you look for constellations in the Milky Way and keep an eye out for falling stars. After finishing telling your last story by the fire pit, drift to sleep in your choice of 4 comfortable bedrooms each with ideal accommodations for the whole group. The master suite boasts a plush king bed, while another room includes a flat-screen TV with Hulu! -- THE LOCATION -- 'The Lodge at Mirror Lake' offers a one-of-a-kind destination in the Smoky Mountains, with easy access to endless outdoor recreation and more. Pack your gear and head out on a fly fishing trip or drive to one of the area's zip-lining parks to experience thrilling rides through the forest! Hiking is huge in this area with a vast trail network leading past waterfalls and sites like Mossy Back Gap and Cowl Cove. You'll discover many nearby creeks and other bodies of water for kayaking, tubing, whitewater rafting, and other adventures. Take a break from the outdoors and test your luck with the tables and slots at Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino, just over 40 miles from the property.
