Be sure to take a peek at our other listing too! We lost the original cabin in the 2016 fire, and our new custom home is designed to take full advantage of Gatlinburg's best city and mountain view! We are hoping to be open by Summer 2018. https://www.flipkey.com/properties/6696951/

We were looking for the perfect property, and it is hard to believe that solitude and beauty like this can be only 18 minutes from the strip in Pigeon Forge and 10 minutes from Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Cabins on this street get five star reviews for their views. Embracing View has that view plus, being on the ridge top, a second view just as good in the opposite direction!!! It's like a ten star view! Sit on the front porch to watch the sunrise over Cove Mountain and Wears Valley and the back porch to watch the sunset over Bluff Mountai...

Interaction with guests
If you are used to dealing with management companies it might be a bit of a shock working with us. We like talking with guests by phone, email, or text. Some guests send us pictures and describe their adventures. Some want tips about where to get a certain type of dinner. One family even wanted our advice about how to find a cabin of their own. Whatever your interests are we are happy to help out. We aren't just renting a house... we want your family to have an amazing time and enjoy making memories in one of the most beautiful places in the world. We have amazing housekeepers and other partners in Sevier County, and they help us keep the home in tip top condition.

Hi Tonya, thank you for the wonderful review. We've stayed at some rentals where it seemed that nobody cared, so when you say you felt like "part of the family" that is very encouraging for us. Thank you! It was great getting to know another...More

About the neighborhood
Gatlinburg is the most famous and popular town in the Smoky Mountains, and you are perched high above it with the most beautiful view imaginable. One guest described it as being part of the city but not in the city. You can spend time in the city with lots of activities from the aquarium to moonshine tasting. Plenty of restaurants and shops. The chair lifts, the tram to Ober Gatlinburg. Or you can spend time in the national park, hiking, fishing, rock hopping in streams. Our cabin is right near the end of Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail, which is a highlight for many guests.
Getting around
Only 5 minutes from the strip in Gatlinburg, there is no better location. You can get to groceries, restaurants and other stores on East Parkway without getting stuck in downtown traffic. You are within 15 minutes of Pigeon Forge and the national park when traffic is light. A few guests have walked to the house from downtown, which is great exercise but does require going up a hill. We recommend driving to town and parking, or you can park at City Hall away from town and take the trolley for a small fee.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Knoxville Airport (McGhee Tyson - TYS): 31.1 mi
Driving from the airport or from out of town is easy, but there are tricks to avoiding traffic. We provide tips on back roads in our welcome packet so that you can spend more time having fun and less sitting in the car.
