Morning Sun Retreat Cabin and Guest House form a unique four bedroom, three bath property. Entertainment area, bath, sleeper sofa and pool table are in a separate building.
From the covered front porch, you see the first rays of the sun rise slowly and fan out over the mountain tops. Then light hits the pristine woods surrounding you as you hear birds singing through the large yard. Later you can fire up the grill and have lunch on the open deck or roast marshmallows around the fire pit.
You’ll love Morning Sun Retreat! Savor the peace and quiet as you breathe in the fresh mountain air. See mountain peaks and ridges through the trees, nicely framed in wooded seclusion with a panoramic view of the Great Smokys. Let your spirit be restored.
Morning Sun Retreat is a delightfully designed log cabin. As you open the front door, you will find the soaring cathedral ceiling, huge clerestory windows, and glowing wood interior.
The open great room includes a living space with a flat panel HD 42 inch TV, a dining area with a large solid wood table for 6 (that can seat up to 12 with additional leaves), and a modern kitchen. The windows provide a panoramic view as you relax on the cozy sofa or in the lounge chair.
In the upstairs loft you’ll find a futon, desk, 13” TV and table air hockey. The upstairs bedroom adjacent to the loft has a queen-size bed, a book nook, and a spacious bathroom with jetted tub.
Downstairs you’ll find the second bedroom with an adjacent bathroom and the third bedroom with a twin bunk bed over a full.
Outside you can play ball or throw a Frisbee in the flat, grassy back yard, or toast marshmallows over the fire pit. Two large boulders, keepsakes from the original site, frame the green landscape.
For more space for entertaining and entertainment, the Guest House, is a large studio apartment over a spacious two-car garage. Enjoy life in one large room and spacious upper and lower decks. Inside there’s seating for five on the dual-power-reclining console loveseat and the comfortable, matching queen-size sofa sleeper. The 60” TV is wall-mounted for easy viewing from anywhere in the room.
The Guest House has a full bath, full kitchen, and a dining table with four comfortable captain’s chairs and an optional game table top. There’s also a small desk next to contemporary sockets with USB plugs. Outside you can watch the sun rise from the upper deck while seated on one of the four rockers or at the bistro or dining table. Or you can enjoy privacy amid the trees on on the gliding loveseat or padded sofa and chairs on the covered lower deck.
Families with kids will especially love Morning Sun! The Cabin is equipped with board games, a high chair/booster chair, a stroller, and a portable crib as well as toys and children’s books. And the large flat backyard is perfect for enjoying a game of tag or catch.
– Past Guests of Morning Sun Retreat share their Mountain Experiences:
“The property was perfect for our family of seven (4 girls ages 5-10, 1 boy age 2). The sleeping arrangement was perfect for us, and we could all fit comfortably around the dining table. We love the idea of coming back with extended family in the guest house. We all loved the porches — especially on the afternoon that we had rain — and the backyard was so nicely, naturally enclosed and weed-free that we could let the children play without any concern. Loved the landscaping.
We were apprehensive about choosing a rental cabin online. We were impressed with other customers’ comments and satisfaction with the properties, and with the careful attention that the property managers gave to every comment from the customers. It was clear that the managers pay careful attention to their property and were very responsive and dependable. We liked the professionally managed linens. TripAdvisor ratings were important to us. Very pleased with Great Smoky’s Cabin Rentals and the property we stayed in.” – Brent
– “We finally came back to celebrate our grandmothers 94th birthday. We are blessed everyday to have her with us. She loves the mountains. This here we decided to spend more time here at the cabin relaxing, reading, and watching movies. It was just what we needed. Another successful girls getaway to celebrate. See you next year.” – Denise
