Great vacation cabin!

5 of 5
My husband and I recently visited this cabin for our anniversary. We could not have been more pleased with our trip. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, inside and outside. The furnishings were extremely nice.There are numerous things to do at the cabin such as playing pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi, going out in the canoe, roasting marshmallows in the firepit, or just relaxing with a good book on the deck. This is by no means a typical cabin that you can rent. Our favorite place to be at the cabin was out on deck overlooking the lake and mountains. We were able to see 4 deer by the lake one morning, and then 3 deer in the driveway later that evening. The scenery is amazing! There is also lots to do in the area, such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and hiking. We can't wait to plan our next trip back. We have stayed in numerous cabins in the "Great Smokies", but none compare to this cabin! Serenity Cove is the perfect name for this place!
