Special thanks to the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce for hosting my family for the weekend. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.
Let me introduce Hidden Mountain Resort. This is a glorious little community of cottages and cabins in a remote area so that you feel far away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. And yet, I was also very pleasantly surprised that I could reach the main drag of Sevierville and ALL that fun stuff to go see and do in just 5 minutes flat. Hidden Mount Resort homes are perfectly situated to give you the best of both worlds: seclusion and easy access to all the fun!
We stayed in cabin #4129, Mountain Dove (every home has a fun name, which I love!). When we arrived my husband and my in-laws, who were traveling with us, were positively SHOCKED at how gorgeous this home was. I was honestly a little confused by their dismay, and then I learned that their assumption was that staying in a “cabin” would be rustic and perhaps even mildly uncomfortable.
Clearly they didn’t get the memo about what Hidden Mountain Resort homes are like! I suppose I had the advantage because I visited the website before we went. I knew it was going to be spectacular! 🙂
I just can’t say this enough, friends: if you are traveling with kids or with a larger-than-average group (such as having your in-laws with you) then staying in a house is leaps and bounds more comfortable than staying in a hotel. And you just might be shocked by how comparable the cost is to having to book a few hotel rooms. This particular cabin rents for $350/night. It has 3 bedrooms. If you had 2 different families splitting the bill, that would be $175/night per family and instead of having to hole up in a tiny room, you have an entire GORGEOUS home. It’s honestly a no-brainer!
My children had an absolute blast exploring all the fun that there is to be had in Sevierville. But they also made a point of asking to “go back home” and they weren’t talking about Chattanooga…they were talking about Hidden Mountain!
With that garden tub and a little bubble bath on hand, can you really blame them???
As for the grownups, we enjoyed getting to have some time to relax in the hot tub on the deck, and of course, we made good use of the fire, which was gas and turned on with the flick of a switch!
Our Hidden Mountain Resort home was very spacious, very pristine, and very comfortable. Everyone had plenty of room to stretch out and relax. And while hit up quite a few restaurants on our particular trip, the next time we come to Hidden Mountain (oh trust, there will be a next time!) we’ll make use of the kitchen, which will actually help us save money on the vacation and ensure that we have food on hand that our little picky eaters will actually eat. 🙂
I also loved that while I had all of the benefits of staying in a house on this vacation, I ALSO had some of the benefits you expect when you stay in a hotel, such as 24 hour front desk service and the ability to switch out my linens if I so desired. The house also had a washer and dryer. Laundry wasn’t on my intended list of things to do during the weekend, but my youngest had a potty accident (such is life with a toddler, right?!) and boy was I glad to have that machine on hand so that I didn’t have to haul stinky, dirty laundry back home with me. Imagine how useful that would be for week-long vacations, too!
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Hidden Mount Resort. They have many different cabins at various price points and of various sizes to accommodate a wide variety of budgets and needs. I can’t wait to go back.
And true story: just this morning I was reminiscing with my kids about our trip to Disney World back in November. My oldest said, “Yeah Disney was fun, but when are going back to Sevierville and that pretty cabin?” Sevierville and Hidden Mount Resort, that is the highest praise from my daughter, who loves all things Disney with all of her heart!
