Baskins Creek Sounds is our unique log 'home away from home' that we make available to those who are looking for a relaxing setting.
Note: **The original cabin burned in the 2016 wildfires. The new cabin is very similar to the one that we enjoyed so much. The pictures posted are of the new cabin which is finally finished. Please see the facebook page baskins creek sounds for updates on the cabin.
Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a small mountain town bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our place is within easy walking distance to the center of town (why pay for parking?) and a few miles to the Arts and Crafts loop. Walk right up the street and into the The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Pass a gorgeous waterfall approximately 45 minutes away and if you really like to hike, keep going and connect with other National Park trails such as Trillium Gap, Cherokee, Roaring Fork, Mount Le Conte, Rainbow Falls and of course, Baskins Creek Falls. We have approximately 200 feet of beautiful Baskins Creek running through our front yard so if you're not a hiker you can enjoy the sights and sounds of mountain stream without leaving the property.
The house has three (3) large bedrooms--- two (2) up and one (1) down and 2 full baths. Includes a king, a queen, and full bed with a bunk, as well as a queen sleeper sofa. New living room furniture looks great on the hardwood floors. All total, you can enjoy any of three televisions, with cable. We will keep a small stash of DVDs, as well as a well stocked bookshelf as soon as I am able to get this replenished.
The kitchen/dining area is 20’x18’ with an open beam cathedral ceiling of knotty pine. This room features a ceiling fan and an island wet bar with two stools. Seat eight comfortably at the dining table. The children's corner features a table and chairs for two. The kitchen is equipped with a coffee maker, toaster oven, electric range and microwave, as well as enough cookware to make a cooking family happy.
Through the side kitchen door is our large porch with an additional table for four, a couple of unique chairs and a lounge where you can let the creek lull you into a refreshing nap. Just outside the porch is a charcoal grill, for your steaks, dogs and burgers and of course, s'mores.
The yard is an experience all its own. Apart from the house most of this beautiful half-acre survived that fire and is filled with unique flowers, trees, and shrubs, all in a delightful series of garden 'rooms' sure to please any nature loving taste. It is doubtful that anyone can identify every plant in the yard but you owe it to yourself to try. There are plenty of places to sit and be still, pray, or just enjoy the quiet.
A most charming way to enjoy the yard is to park yourself on the 30’ front porch where you can swing, rock, or commune with the birds as you enjoy your coffee or tea.
Great for a family retreat, girlfriend's weekend, wedding or a honeymoon. To us our home is about relaxing with family and good friends. We hope you'll find the same is true for you and yours. Come see us soon!
