My son, Cole, and I leave my wife in peace for one week every summer and take a road trip (he's almost 15 now). I asked him where he wanted to go last year and he said, "The mountains in Tennessee... Gatlinburg." That's quite a haul from where we live in NJ but I said, what the heck... let's do it! We found Leconte Lookout Cabin and it was truly all we'd hoped for and more... all the amenities you could want but in a true, cozy log cabin, beautifully designed and immaculately clean. And with a stunning morning view of the mountains from the deck that stays with you long after you leave. And the entire Gatlinburg area is amazing. We're looking forward to coming back for another week of adventure this summer.
This cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway. It's perfect fit for 2 adults. It snowed one of the days we were there and so we decided to stay inside. We used the hot tub with the snow falling in front of us it was magical.
We arrived around 6pm so it was dark out already, we couldn't find the house because it's so dark. We drove past it up the hill and had to make a u-turn in another house. I would recommend leaving the porch light turned on otherwise you will completely miss it at night.
The only issue I had was there were some spiderwebs in the closets and under the bed. Found a small spider on the corner under the bed when my earring fell and I am an arachnophobe so my boyfriend had to get it.
Other Than that, the stay was very pleasant. I took a picture having coffee with the mountains in the background and all my friends where asking me where to book this awesome place. Downtown is 5 mins away! And the Great Smokies National Park is about 15 mins away! Can't wait to come back!
The location was awesome, only minutes from the main strip. The cabin itself was very cozy and tastefully decorated, amazing views of the mountains from the back deck and the king sized bed in the loft. The Hot Tub was amazing and you can't be anywhere in the cabin without a clear view of a TV, perfect place to relax and just get away. Highly Recommend for a couples retreat. It snowed while we were there so bonus!!!
My husband and I wanted a romantic Christmas get-a-way in 2016, and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful cabin. It was so cozy and perfect for us. Plus, to our surprise we discovered a beautiful Christmas tree upon our entry into the cabin. We were not expecting Christmas décor, and definitely not a gorgeous tree beautifully decorated, so it made our stay extra special. Everything was perfect, especially the hot tub!! We loved our stay and have some incredible memories! So grateful to God for helping us find Leconte Lookout Smoky Mountain Cabin!
Nov is a good time for the changing of the colors in the forest.
Not far from Gatlinburg, about 10 minutes.
The bathtubs do not have any antiskid material on the bottom of the tub. So, not good for folks needing assistance getting in and out. No hand holds either. But, if you don't need such amenities, not to worry.
Overall, a nice place to come back to in the evening after having a fun-day

We found this cabin on trip advisor by chance and so glad we did. Great getaway cabin close to everything but not too close. Great views. Great size for a couple or small family. Close to smokey mountain parks and all the Gatlinburg amenities. We plan to go back.
