“Time Well Wasted” is a luxury 1 bedroom cabin in the heart of The Preserve Resort. With a sleeping capacity of 6 people, this beautiful cabin offers modern stainless steel appliances, pool table, foosball table. The incredible Smoky Mountain Views from the deck can be enjoyed from one of our rocking chairs or in the comfort of a relaxing hot tub.

Cabin layout:
You will enter the first level (with only two steps) into the fully-equipped kitchen with its granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The dining area, adjacent to the kitchen, can easily seat six for memorable family meals. The spacious living room is next with its leather sleeper-sofa and loveseat, stacked-stone fireplace, large screen TV (Comcast Cable Service). Behind the living room is the enclosed king sized bedroom (with a new 32" flat screen TV) and private full-bath. Outside the living room is a full-length wooden deck with rockers for your enjoyment and a charcoal barbeque grill.

Upstairs on the second level, you discover a spacious game room loft area featuring a pool table, Queen size bed, new 39" flat screen TV and another full-bathroom with shower and jetted jacuzzi bathtub. There is another full wooden deck outside this level, complete with big, bubbling hot tub and more rockers. Above the bathroom on the second level is a unique "crow's nest" area that the children will love. This spot (crow's nest) has two futons.

The views from this cabin are spectacular! You have full use of the resort amenities, too, which include a fantastic outdoor pool and hot tub (in-season use), a fitness facility, and a relaxing sauna room.

Hearthside has always been great to us. The cabin was clean and well maintained. This trip had a little more excitement as Thursday morning at 3am, the cabin across the road burn to the ground. Duke, Jimbo, and Shaun were extremely supportive and helpful in allowing us to stay at a different cabin until we were able to get back to ours. Great company led by great people. Thank you.

The cabin was clean and we enjoyed our stay. We got towels on request that we needed and had a little problem with one of the ceiling fans working improperly. We reported the issue and had someone at our cabin to fix the problem within 1 hour. Great service!

Susan From Broomall

Everyone I spoke with on the phone at Hearthside was courteous and polite. I never encountered any rude behavior or bad service. My experiences were pleasant from start to finish.

Wonderful experience. Only complaint we had was the drain in the tub was slow so our feet would get submersed. That's the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. Other than that it was great!

Loved the views and cabin. Also enjoed being secluded yet still close enough for activities, supplies, dining.

La From Greenwell Springs

The people I worked with were very nice and helpful. I enjoyed working with them. The grass could have been mowed. It was high and took away from the look of the area. The cabin was nice. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

John From Dubuque

The cabin was everything we hoped for and more!! Hoping to come again!

Dan From Guthrie

Time Well Wasted is a beautiful cabin. Wonderful view from the two balconies. Impeccably clean. My only suggestion would be to upgrade or remove the TV's. The "stay two nights get the third free" offer made the stay very affordable.

Quincy From Middletown

2nd time staying in your cabins with my wife and we loved it. Both were clean, well maintained, upgraded, and awesome views from anywhere inside the cabins. We won't stay with anyone else from now on. We both thank you.

Kristi From Glendale

We really loved the cabin!! Everything with Hearthside overall was very nice & convenient. The only complaints I can say is the dvd player remote in the bedroom didn't have batteries or the back on it. And when I washed a load of dishes in the dishwasher, the soap powder was built up in the dispenser from the guests that stayed before us. But those are very minor, it will not stop me from using Hearthside again!!

Lisa From Kendallville

Nice visit. Beautiful cabin. The cabin quality was terrific. The furnishing were clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes/utensils.

Heather From Florence

Great experience! We arrived on Friday and it had snowed 5-6 inches the night before. Jimbo at the wanted to be sure the roads were passable before we went to the cabin and even gave us his cell phone number to call before we headed to the cabin. Cabin was clean and nice. Definitely went the extra mile. Thanks!
