Our Smoky Mountain Vacation-Post 2

One of my favorite things about our vacation was our cabin. I loved it! It was so cozy and relaxing. I highly recommend that if you are looking for a long weekend getaway that is not a horrible drive from home that you stay here. The bed was so comfortable and I LOVED having a hot tub to soak in after a long day of exploring the area. Here are some pics of the cabin.

There was a charcoal grill that we used twice to cook our meals.  We always bring ingredients to make most of our meals when we travel.  Saves us a lot of money by not eating out.  We ate dinner out once and lunch one not counting the days we were on the road from home and back.

The screened in back porch had two rocking chairs and a swing and my favorite....the hot tub!

There is only one bedroom room with a very comfy king size bed and a good sized tv, a vcr (with a whole cabinet of VHS kids movies), and a dvd player.  There was also a little stereo and the air hockey table in the room.  There were two rather large closets but one had the stackable washer and dryer in it.  LOVED being able to do some laundry and not have to go home with a huge pile of clothes to wash.

This is the living room.  The couch folded out into a queen size bed and that is where the big kids slept at night. 

Kitchen had just about everything you could need in it.  Coffee maker, blender, pots, pans.....
Not very big but when we were only there in the mornings and for a couple hours of the evening it was no big deal.
We had fun challenging each other to rounds of air hockey. 
Oh and were you wondering where our little peanut slept?  Each night we made him this little nest.  We figured he would not sleep in the pack n play anymore now that he love his big boy bed.  We used the mattress part of the pack n play on the floor and just put pillows around him.  He went to sleep easily every night.  He is such a good boy.
