Traveling can get frustrating at times from the booking all the way to the packing and when you have a family not just any stay qualifies for all your needs. I remember when I was younger going on road trips with my family every summer and how my parents wanted the best place for us so that we could all enjoy the actual vacation. Thankfully, in this day and age we have traveling websites and hosts like airbnb that help us find the perfect place for the perfect vacation.

Even though it’s early in the year, babe and I needed some time away at a quiet place, with a nice view, somewhere cozy but also a place with attractions for fun. While we were planning, all I could think about was how beautiful Gatlinburg was and how much fun we had on our trip to Tennessee last November. Finding the location was easy but trying to look for the right stay needed some research. I remembered being in downtown Gatlinburg where we walked around The Village Shops, visited some of the Ripley’s attractions, and of course eating at Bubba Gump Shrimp, looking up the mountain there were homes that I was sure had the best view of the Smokies. While browsing on airbnb I knew I found the place for us when I saw the beautiful view off the balcony at Cherry On Top Condo.

This stay is located up a mountain with an adventurous drive way leading the way and it doesn’t require a check in at an office so you can go right in with your door code. There have been bookings from people from Germany, England, Ireland, and even China. Cherry On Top Condo has two bedrooms and two baths, perfect for the family. Not only do the host, Cayce and Sarah, accommodate you with all the kitchen utensils you need for cooking in the kitchen, but they also include board games and Netflix right there for you to enjoy with your whole family. Right in the living room you have a window seat where you can sit and enjoy the view with a warm cup of coffee from the coffee station. If you want to see up close all you need to do is walk out to the balcony in the living room where you can sit outdoors and enjoy some fresh air, and the view is just spectacular! Just 15 minutes down the mountain you find yourself in downtown Gatlinburg with all types of tourist attractions, restaurants, aquarium, shops, and arcades which was exactly what we were looking for.

The hosts provide you with all the necessary bedding like pillows and blankets and in the bathrooms you have towels, soap, and shampoo ready to use. Each part of the house has a wooden touch and the rooms have their own tv, closet, and window with a mountain view that makes you feel right in the wilderness. It’s definitely the right place to go for relaxation. If you need more of it though, the clubhouse has a pool and hot tub that’s included with the stay. It really can’t get any better than that. They even include brochures and a binder in the coffee table to guide you around town.

Cherry On Top Condo had the perfect amenities for babe and I to have a perfect getaway in the Smokies. Thanks so much Cayce and Sarah for a wonderful stay!
