**We know that every cabin looks amazing online, but check all of the reviews (How current the reviews are and whether or not they were actually written by guests or owners) before you make your decision. We believe that our cabin is superior to the others in quality, cleanliness, homeyness, amenities and pricing. We (The owners) oversee every detail and stay at the cabin ourselves consistently to ensure that real life is better than the pictures we have posted on VRBO.

The other, nestled away on the same wrap around porch around the corner of the cabin, is a 2-person tub providing an opportunity for privacy and romance, even in the midst of your crowd! This tub overlooks the tranquility of the woods as well as the mountain in the distance.

Bedroom Suites 4 and 5 are located on the terrace level. Bedroom 4 has an en-suite bathroom and bedroom 5 shares a full bathroom with the common area (with a private entrance). Both bedrooms have 32' HD LED TV's and DVD players.

There is also a lighted path down the side of the hill that leads to the cabin's very own fire pit. The firepit is fully stocked with firewood, a charcoal grill, picnic table in the clearing and plenty of hewn logs to sit on. The firepit ALSO overlooks Mount LeConte!

We promise you will find lovely touches at every turn to help make your stay memorable.

The only thing missing from this cabin is you, your family, and your friends!

Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
The best word I can use to describe my family's experience at this cabin is AMAZING!! There were 18 members of my family including 8 children ranging from ages 4 to 19. There was plenty of space to accommodate everyone and the kids were NEVER bored!!! This cabin is convenient and close to everything. We enjoyed touring both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. There were so many activities including zip-lining, rafting, horseback riding, and the under ground caverns were breathtaking. The view of the mountains was so serene and tranquil. It looked like a postcard picture. The cabin was so truly a home away from home with everything you could possibly need and Debbie (the owner) was so sweet and very considerate even calling from time to time to make sure we were okay and not in need of anything. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone with teenagers or little ones. We enjoyed ourselves very much and you couldn't ask for a nicer person than Debbie. I can't wait to do it again!!!

Perfect location in the perfect house!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house! Mom on the main floor, kids upstairs, grandkids and great grandchild downstairs. It was a wonderful intergenerational family vacation. The older generation enjoyed sitting in rockers on the porch to enjoy beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Smokies. The kids found all kinds of games to play downstairs. The hot tub was the perfect place to relax. Mom led us all in a home cooking lesson in the great kitchen, fully equipped, everything we needed. The house is just fine for those with limited mobility issues -- four or five steps at the entrance, and convenient parking. Otherwise, full access to the main floor.

We flew into Knoxville airport and were in our rental car within just a few minutes. 45 minutes later when we arrived in Pigeon Forge, the house was immaculate, thanks to Christie who met us at the door. Debbie checked in a couple of times by telephone to make sure everything was ok, which we appreciated very much. Plenty of fresh, fluffy towels, very comfie beds throughout, hot water and plenty of pressure in all the showers. We were there in August, and the A/C worked without a hitch.

In the area, we drove 15 minutes to Gatlinburg and then up into the Smokies, once to a picnic area and the TN/NC divide, once on a driving tour of old cabins, and a third day to see the waterfall at the Sink. Just outside the park was excellent tubing along the Little River. We spent a fabulous day at Dollywood, and since it was mid-August and kids were just back in school, there were no lines at what must be one of the world's best wooden roller coasters -- much more exciting than the more modern coasters that are also in the park. Pigeon Forge was a bit touristy, but in a humorous sort of way -- King Kong climbing a building, dinosaurs at go-cart tracks -- we had a great laugh taking lots of cute pictures. But then there were great surprises: We loved the Titanic museum, an excellent presentation suitable for serious adults as well as kids. And we thoroughly enjoyed our ride in the Ferris wheel on "The Island".

So all in all, this visit far exceeded our expectations! Thank you Debbie!

A Great Time at Monte Vista!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was magnificent!! The cabin was truly everything it states!!! The description, the photos and the reviews were right on! The view and the decks are totally awesome. Our family are the outdoors-type and we all enjoyed having coffee in the morning out on the decks, or in the evenings having cocktails. We cooked out almost every night and enjoyed listening to the different types of birds and wildlife. We even had an evening around the campfire roasting marsh-mellows and having smores!! The cabin is centrally located and close to everything! Shops, white water rafting, and Dollywood. Even the Great Smokey National Park where we all went hiking. It was truly a great time had by all! We were a party of 13 and we never felt cramped or like we were invading someone's space; this cabin has lots of space!! It was great. I would highly recommend this cabin!! This is truly a vacation spot we will come back to and we would rent this cabin again if we have the whole family joining us!! We Truly Loved It!!!!!

Monte Vista was great.

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a great stay at Monte Vista. You won't be dissappointed. It had everything our family of ten needed and more. It is in a quite setting with a great view. Far enough away from the crowds and traffic of Pigeon forge ( six miles ) yet close enough to sample the shops and restaurants. We ranged in age from 3 to 65 and there was plenty for everyone to do. Monte Vista is convenient to all activities, kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, ATV's. horse back riding, Dollywood, shopping, and dinning. Debbie, the owner checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Very nice to work with. Our family made many memories at Monte Vista. Thank you Debbie.

Making Memories In The Mountains!

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to thank you and your family for providing such a wonderful experience at the Monte Vista! It was everything we could have imagined and more! Next time we visit Gatlinburg, we will definitely be booking with you again! :) You were so attentive before, during and after our stay and it really meant the world to have that type of service! Thanks a bunch! It was also so special to spend this trip with my 81 year old grandmother, who had NEVER been on a vacation before! She loved sitting out on the deck, drinking her morning coffee and admiring the views! She had a great time! Thanks again!

Fell in love with the view!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family an I spent a week at monte vista cabin and fell in love with Tennessee. We had a large group of 12 people and had plenty of space to accommodate everyone. Sitting on the porch rocking chairs in the morning with the mountains, coffee and good conversations are memories we will always remember!! The owner was so helpful and organized with making our stay as comfortable as possible. We truly felt at home in the cabin, it was a much needed relaxing vacation. We even discovered a great tubing rental place right down the road and did a 2 hour river float that was a big hit. The cabin is right in the middle of everything, we hiked up the smoky mountains in gatlinberg, go karts in pigeon forge, shopping at the outlet mall and white water rafting on the pigeon forge river!! What a blast we had with all the adventures and then coming back at night cooking dinner at the cabin and enjoying the 2 hot tubs!! We would love to come back again soon.. Such a beautiful clean cabin!!! Thanks so much for everything to make our stay so great!!

From the Owner

With just 5 miles to Dollywood and the Pigeon Forge main strip one way and 10 minutes to the arts and crafts district of Gatlinburg the other way, this cabin is easily accessible and very private with amazing views. From the decks of this cabin you will see nothing but the woods and Mount LeConte. No other cabins obstruct this view. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is just minutes away. There is something for everyone here. The cabin is big enough for extended family and friends with space to have private moments as well (in our secluded 2 person secondary hot tub).
