My husband and I went for the weekend and had the most amazing weekend. There was so much to do at the cabin. We relaxed in the hot tub, we played air hockey and foosball. We tried out their walking trail it is not long, but steep (we realized we are very out of shape lol) that had walking sticks available for us to use and I am glad we did. It rained most of the weekend so that was a bummer, but we were able to get out into town and visit Tanger Outlet which was not very far. We also tried out Preacher's BBQ which was a recommendation from the cabin (it was very good). I loved that the cabin had lots of flyers for different things to do in the area. What a great place!! We will definitely want to come back for a visit to this cabin ?

This was a last minute getaway with our family. We had never been to the Smoky Mountains before so we didn't know what to expect. All I can say is WOW!!!!! We will be back for sure! We couldn't decide what we loved more hanging out at the cabin or exploring Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The cabin was so warm and cozy and decorated beautifully. Every detail was thought of. My kids loved the walking trail on the property. They raced around until exhaustion. I loved being able to open the door and let my kids safely explore. While my husband and I cooked on the grill and enjoyed the back porch. We will be back for sure!!

My family and I just returned from a short trip to Gatlinburg. We stayed at the Gathering Place cabin and LOVED IT! Beautiful place, exactly as pictured, and clean. The beds were soft and the linens were nice. When we arrived we discovered that the heat was not working. But with one quick call to the owners, they had someone come out and fix it while we were out sight seeing. They were very pleasant to work with and this small inconvenience did not negatively impact our trip in anyway. Hot tub was nice and in clean working order. Kitchen well stocked. Would stay again at this beautiful place!

I have been traveling to this area for years and this is my first time staying at The Gathering Place and it is, by far, the best cabin I have stayed in!! The location is perfect! It's like 10 or 15 minutes from EVERYTHING and the drive up and down from cabin is breathtaking. Everything in the cabin is brand new and so well put together and designed. The owners when out of their way to make this place look and feel perfect. It is cozy and feels like home. The views are gorgeous and the grounds are awesome. So much to do!!!! The owners are great to deal with and lovely people! This place is Perfect!!!!I will never stay anywhere else as long as this property is available. I recommend you try it. You will not regret staying at The Gathering Place♥

My family and I spent 4 days at The Gathering place and the first thing that came to mind we arrived at the property was WOW!!! The pictures do not to it justice. It is such a peaceful place. The cabin had everything we needed in addition to other things we didn't think of like, brochures to local attractions to help us get around to playing cards and games for the cold nights after our days of exploring. The hot tub was so relaxing looking out to the property. For 4 days we had our own piece of the smokies and didn't want to leave. We loved hiking in the National Forest and found several waterfalls. We also ate 3 times at The Old Mill!!! It is a must if you are looking for a unique dining experience with history and amazing food! We will be back for sure and will bring friends and family!!!! We didn't even touch all there is the do in the GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS!
