About the property

Gentry's Rest Stop is your one-stop vacation playground! With great motorcycle access, this private, air conditioned home is the finest around for large family reunions or shared vacations, yet intimate enough for two. Firewood is on-site at no charge for winter guests, and the 8-person hot tub in its own private setting is just the ticket after a day of sightseeing or fun-filled activities. Children are more than welcome here, and there are many board games to choose from and a video library that boasts over 200 DVD's! Everything's included in the kitchen with a variety of spices as well. Outdoors there is badmitten, horseshoes, firepit, picnic table, 2 gas and one charcoal grill, as well as hiking trails and a walking bridge across Jonathan Creek right in the backyard! Sleds are provided in winter for fun-filled activities and there is a 20x30 covered porch for the exclusive enjoyment of our guests. Very easy access year round. Guests have horseback riding, snow skiing and both water & snow tubing in town.

ALSO NOW AVAILABLE is a separate 3 bedroom/2 bath cabin ON SITE, ON THE CREEK, NEWLY REMODELED AND REFURNISHED!!! This cabin will either accommodate an overflow group from the 'Big House' or just an intimate and cozy cabin for up to 6 guests. If an overflow from the main house, use of the hot tub is allowed and a special rate is offered. More details available on our personal website. Please email for rates and availability!

WANT TO KNOW MORE?: Gentry's Rest Stops 1&2 are professionally decorated by the owner, a well known interior designer, in a charming country decor and the outside has also been lovingly tended for picture-taking for your memory books. Four-season and holiday decorations contribute to the coziness of the home and children love to view some of the local wildlife close up that is part of the area. Gentry's have their own 'resident' elk, aptly named Bullwinkle, who actually comes to visit occasionally and loves to pose for pictures! Raccoon and squirrels scoot among the trees as well as hummingbirds, butterflies and fireflies at night. Guests are well taken care of as the Gentry's live on-site and are available to supply your every need should one arise. When you arrive you will notice your quarters are on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the home. The Gentrys are mindful of your seclusion and separateness and you can be assured your privacy is guaranteed. There's plenty of parking for vehicles and if you want to trailer your motorcycle or ATV, there is more than enough room for turn-arounds on the gravel driveway. Easy access all year and ATV and motorcycle enthusiasts will find many trails to explore. Please see our website for more photos and information.

WHAT'S THERE TO DO?: Nearby attractions include the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway with miles of never-ending views of the beautiful mountains and valleys; Great Smoky Mountain Railroad in Dillsboro, Biltmore Estate with its winery and garden tours, hiking, shopping, antiquing, whitewater rafting, tubing (both water and snow), horseback riding and of course eating at the many restaurants around the area. Only about 30 minutes away is Cherokee where you will find Harrah's Casino, and find an authentic pair of moccasins or other Native American gifts for that special person. Visit Cataloochee Valley where you can get up close and personal with the elk that were reintroduced to our area. Fontana Lake is about 45 minutes away where you can rent paddle boats or go fishing and swim in the cool mountain waters. Golfing is quite close for you duffers and horseback riding is a sure bet to enjoy fall foilage in autumn. Maggie Valley's very own Ghost Town in the Sky is now reopened and features a new ZIPLINE for you thrill-seekers! Dollywood, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge are about an hour away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Shari and Rhonda, we had a wonderful time at the cabin, it was so beautiful and peaceful. The kids didn't want to leave. We will most definitely go again next year. Again thank you for everything.

More than what we expected from the pictures!! First family vacation here stateside and was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation and I’m so happy we had it here at Gentry’s!! The cabin was more than we can feel every personalized affection that went into making this cabin feel like home! We only had 1 week there and was fortunate enough to have a snowy experience the first 2 days given that 10 out of 12 of us never experienced it! Ms Rhonda gave us a snow man kit and tobagans to enjoy..that just meant the world to my grandsons w/c melted my heart in every way. These memories will last a lifetime! Thank You so much! You all will forever be in our hearts and prayers and we can’t wait to be back again!! Always...Ruben&Flora Espiritu&Family

Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. There was plenty of room for all 12 of us, comfortable beds, plenty of seating in the living room and kitchen as well as on the back porch. All of the furnishings were nice not worn out and ratty. I have never seen a kitchen so well supplied with dishes for cooking and storing leftovers for a large family. We go on vacation together as a family every year and have had to pay much more for much less. Our grandchildren who were with us range in ages from 15 to 6 and they loved the wildlife they saw on a daily basis and of course the creek. The water I'm told is extremely cold year round but that didn't stop them from getting in. Most of our meals we prepared right there and enjoyed being able to eat together with plenty of room. Most nights after it was dark and of course there isn't much to do there after dark, we spent our time playing card games together in groups. Depending on abilities we played Go Fish, Phase 10 and Rummy, sometimes till about midnight for the adults. During the day we played Putt Putt in Maggie Valley, went to Cherokee to do a little shopping and to the river right there in town. Everyone loved the river, not only was it free the kids found painted rocks all over the area. They are talking about repainting them and some from home and sending them to the troops in Iraq. We also went to Deep Creek, tubing, well I watched from the side but some of the others enjoyed it, some, not so much. We would definitely stay here again. The owners are very friendly people, I just hope all of our noise wasn't too much and they were just too nice to say anything. What can I say , it was absolutely perfect !!
