A three-bedroom, A-shape log cabin, Marlene’s Hideaway is a delight in and of itself. Making it even more enticing is its location within the White Oak Resort. Not only is the resort packed with amenities, but it is also just a short drive from area’s numerous attractions.

Resembling an Alpine chalet but set among the towering trees and foothills of the Smoky Mountains, Marlene’s Hideaway can sleep as many as six people in comfort and rustic style. The primary bedroom, located on the main floor, features a comfortable king-size bed with a well-padded leather headboard, so that you can easily prop yourself up to read, watch TV or surf the web while remaining cozy beneath the covers. The other two bedrooms, each of which has a log-frame queen-size bed, are upstairs. All three bedrooms include a TV, a ceiling fan, lustrous wood-planked walls, floors and ceilings.

Each floor has its own bathroom, and each bathroom includes dual sinks and vanities so that everyone can get prepped and primped in record time. The upstairs bathroom has an additional perk: a jetted tub. After hiking, skiing or experiencing every ride at Dollywood, a long soak is just the rejuvenation you’ll need!

The open, airy living area makes up most of the main floor. Here, too, you’ll find gleaming wood walls, floors and ceilings. On chilly winter evenings the flicker from the stone-surround fireplace will bathe them in a golden glow. Add to that the supreme comfort of the leather couches and you might never want to leave. Luckily there’s free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV with cable to keep you entertained as laze.

The handsome dining table seats six, and the cushioned chairs will encourage you to linger long after the dessert course. The kitchen, clad in black granite and the same richly figured wood as the rest of Marlene’s Hideaway, is equipped with just about every appliance, tool and gadget you could possibly need. Even if you eat your main meals at the numerous nearby restaurants, you’ll appreciate having a coffeemaker for your morning cup of joe, a blender for mixing smoothies in the morning and margaritas at night and a refrigerator where you can store milk, juice and ice cream.

Marlene’s Hideaway has both a front porch and a rear deck, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to revel in the mountain breezes and the singing of wrens, larks and warblers. The screened-in rear deck is home to the outdoor hot tub. A soak with friends is a wonderful way to end an action-packed day.

Because Marlene’s Hideaway is located within Gatlinburg’s White Oak Resort, during your stay you can take advantage of the resort’s many amenities. During the warm-weather months these include a large outdoor swimming pool with a grotto and a waterfall that the kids will love playing in. Surrounding the pool is a patio furnished with plenty of chaises where you can soak up the sun, plus a soothing whirlpool. The resort also has outdoor gas grills, tennis courts, basketball hoops and horseshoe pits.

You could easily while away entire days without leaving the resort’s premises. That said, you’ll want to take advantage of the cabin’s proximity to the local attractions. For instance, Marlene’s Hideaway is only five minutes from Climb Works, where you can get a bird’s-eye view of the mountains while ziplining. Just a bit farther in the opposite direction is the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, an eight-mile trail of shops, studios and galleries. Just 15 minutes from the cabin is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and in less than 20 minutes you can drive to downtown Gatlinburg, home to thrill rides, restaurants, distilleries, arcades, shops and more.

So, what are you waiting for? Book your stay at Marlene’s Hideaway today—before someone beats you to it!

This place was okay. to start off, the stairs are wobbly going up and felt unsafe. The place was not clean, there was hair in the shower, crumbs in the couch, dog food under the bed, dog hair was everywhere, and the floors was filthy. My kids feet were black from walking around in there. The tvs are super small and not even smart tvs, no one watches cable anymore. Luckily, we brought a ROKU, One of the upstairs bedroom tvs didn’t even work. The box fan up stairs didn’t work, The shower head upstairs was terrible, the blinds don’t work. There’s hardly any cookware, there’s no broom or mop to clean up with. Some rugs would make it less noisy. There was only three towels. The hot tub was outdated and some of the buttons didn’t work, like to turn on blowers and lights. The beds were comfy at least, another thing is the cabin was too far out of town to have anything delivered, i wish i would have known this because we door dash our food most nights to avoid traffic. We actually got sick while we were down and none of the pharmacies would deliver, we had to drive 30 minutes one way for our medicine. The cabin was just okay considering everything, i would not rent this cabin again. it was roomy, and the beds were comfy but that’s all i can say that was good about it. They could definitely update a few things.
