Sensational View is reopening August 8, 2018! After losing the original cabin in the November 28, 2016 fire, we worked with a Knoxville architect to design the best home we could put on this lot. The custom design lets you tower over everything while being immersed in the panoramic mountain and city view. Check out our pictures to see the spectacular views.

***ANNOUNCING EMBRACING VIEW!!!*** We just purchased a second cabin in the Smokies in August! It wasn't easy to find another view comparable to Sensational View, but we are delighted to announce Embracing View, which surrounds you with country charm and panoramic mountain views. The front and back decks offer views of both sunrise and sunset over the mountains. Check it out here: https://www.flipkey.com/properties/9000344/

Interaction with guests
If you are used to dealing with management companies it might be a bit of a shock to 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.

View is second to none. My family has been coming to Gatlinburg as long as I can remember and we have never had a view or amenities that were as amazing as this. The floor layout, especially that each bedroom has an attached bathroom, make...More

About the neighborhood
Sensational View is literally 5 minutes from the Parkway, the main drag through downtown Gatlinburg. Being on the East Parkway side, you can get to groceries, several restaurants, other stores, and the arts and crafts loop without having to pass through downtown traffic. Getting to the National Park or Pigeon Forge takes only 15 minutes when there is no traffic, but of course weekends and other peak times do add traffic to the mix. The amazing thing about Sensational View is that you can feel like you are towering right over the city while being at arms length. The cabin is well above the noise and traffic yet so close to everything.
Getting around
The only way around this area is by car, but you will enjoy the flexibility of heading wherever you like whenever you want to go. Most guests drive downtown and park or drive to the National Park or attractions in Pigeon Forge. Only when parking in Gatlinburg do you have to pay to park. It is free everywhere else.
