SENSATIONAL VIEW, 1.5 Miles to Downtown Gatlinburg

SENSATIONAL VIEW, 1.5 Miles to Downtown Gatlinburg

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 23, 2014
Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps MAXIMUM Of 18)

What's in a name? Everything. This 5 bedroom, 4 bath cabin has a view that can only be described as sensational, so it's name became Sensational View. This cabin has all the amenities and space one could wish for and is only minutes away from the plentiful shopping and entertainment available in Gatlinburg.

The outdoor hot tub is a wonderful way to relax at the end of a fun-filled day. But what really makes this cabin special is the view from the on-deck hot tub. Whether you're sharing it with someone special, or escaping the fast pace of the world, as you look out over the mountain, peace and tranquility settle around you. During the day, the colors of nature at any time of the season are amazing, and at night the spectacular site of city lights or fireworks send a sweet serenity straight to your heart. Truly, this cabin earns its name. So make your vacation sensational with a stay at Sensational View in the Great Smokey Mountains.

On main level, there is the master king bedroom with adjoining bath and a whirpool bath, also a queen bedroom with adjoining bathroom. In the living room there is a sofa and recliner with an adjoining dining area. There is also another dining area in the gameroom which opens up to join the other dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, silverware, can opener, blender, coffee maker, refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, toaster, stove, and over the stove microwave. In the gameroom is a pool table, fooseball table, two fold out sofas, and many windows to enjoy the beautiful view. There are TV's in all the bedrooms, gameroom, and living room. The cabin has a VCR/DVD and CD player. On the upstairs level, there are 2 queen bedrooms and one full bedroom. In one of the queen bedrooms, there is a large futon and two twin beds. There is also two bathrooms upstairs. The cabin is 2200 square feet with high ceilings and sleeps A MAXIMUM of 18 people.

On the outside covered deck is the hot tub with a table and chairs and a gas BBQ grill. It is so relaxing and romantic to sit in the hot tub with a glass of wine and view the city lights of Gatlinburg. This is really an experience you will never forget. We had our faminy up just before Christmas this past year and sang Christmas carols on the deck outside. The granchildren loved it, especially with a surprise visit from Santa. We will always remember these times.

The cabin has a large parking area which can accomodate 4-5 cars. We have actually had room to throw a football in this area. The cabin has a very unique look, haven't seen one like it anywhere. It also sits on solid ground, not like some of them that hang over a cliff.

We own and personally manage this cabin, so our rates are both reasonable and competitive. We offer discounts for repeat visitors, and we have many. See our rates in another area on this site.

Sensational View has a great location, Food City is only 5 minutes away, and the same for downtown Gatlinburg. Pigeon Forge and Dollywood is only 6 miles. Ober Gatlinburg Ski Slope is about 5-10 minutes from the cabin. The entrance to the Great Smokey Mountain Park is about 10 minutes. Read less

As soon as we saw the view from this cabin we were in awe! Sitting out on the deck in the hottub looking over Gatlinburg was just awesome. The cabin had a great setup and was very cosy for our slightly bigger family. Everything was in great shape so we didnt have any problems. Thanks for a great trip!

Great Option in Gatlinburg at a Reasonable Price

  • 4 of 5
We had a total of 6 adults and 5 kids that stayed here. Overall it's a great place and we're glad we picked it. Everything is pretty much as advertised.

First the pros...
The view from the balcony is excellent and the hot tub was great, especially at night. We were able to fit everyone comfortably and the kids really enjoyed the foosball table (ok, so did the adults). The location is also excellent. Easy access to the national park and you don't have to drive through Gatlinburg to get to Pigeon Forge. Grocery stores and everything else you'd need are near by. The owner also seems very responsive to any issues that come up. We had a very minor issue that I pointed out but said it didn't need to be addressed but someone still came out right away to take care of it. Finally, the price was also half of what it would have been to fit that many people in hotel rooms.

And a few minor cautions...
The driveway is a bit tough if you're used to flat land like we are in Illinois. It's pretty steep and can be tough if you've got a large vehicle. Also, not sure we could have fit too many more people in the house comfortably. So make sure to take a look at the layout of the rooms if you have a large party and make sure you have the necessary space.

So again, definitely consider this place if you're visiting Gatlinburg. We were very happy with our experience!

Owner's Response: Hello Sir,

I appreciate the honest review, I think you made an excellent point about the cost of the cabin, many people don't realize how much money you save by renting our cabins. Plus all the amenities that go with it versus staying in a motel all cramped. We were hoping for a 5 out of 5 review but 4 of 5 is good also.

Thanks,

Glenn

Great Layout, Location and Entertainment

  • 4 of 5
We had an annual family getaway at "Sensational View" and had 8 adults and 6 children staying in the cabin. I loved the layout of the place. Everyone had privacy and each family had their own bathroom. The downstairs area was great for playing pool or foosball or just relaxing on the couch. The location was wonderful. It was so close to downtown and had nice access to the grocery store. There was plenty of seating in the dining area for everyone during meal time or playing board games. The bedrooms had plenty of drawer space to store our clothes. With a new baby, the washer and dryer were lifesavers! Glenn, the owner, was very easy to work with and was very prompt in responding to emails and questions. As for the cons - the place could use a little upgrading. New comforters on the beds could go a long way. The older jacuzzi in the middle room was a safety hazard. We actually had an older child fall while getting out of it and bruise her head on the floor. There were spiderwebs all over the deck around the hot tub, and we killed several giant spiders on the rockers. The view was great, as long as you were standing in one spot. Some of the "weedy" trees could probably be trimmed to get full access to the amazing view. The "pool" is a stretch. A lot of cabins here advertise they have pool access, but really it is a public pool. It was actually closed when we were there, so we didn't get the opportunity to check it out.

Overall, we had a great time and appreciate Glenn sharing his place with us.

Owner's Response: Hello Whitney,

I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We take a great deal of pride in making sure our guests enjoy our cabins. I have corrected the items you mentioned that were negative to you. I actually was not aware that the view have become almost blocked due to the brush growing. This has been cleared now. If you had let me know about this I would have sent somone that same day to correct this. It is hard for me to know about little things like this unless you tell me since I live so far away. I made a special trip here after I read your review to look at the bedrooms and have corrected this also. As far as the spider webs, we have regular pest control checks to keep this in check, unfortunately this is a very woody area, because you are in the mountains, and this is a situation that we do the best we can with. I am here now and I can't find any webs or spiders. I have checked the jacussi and found nothing wrong, never had a complaint about this before. Maybe some assitance with that child would have been helpful in this situation. As far as the pool goes, I did not know it was closed the week you were here, it is a very nice facility, but I have no control over their operation.

In summary, several of the things you mentioned could have been corrected if you had communicated with me. I could have also recommended another pool facility had you let me know. With me not being there, it is hard to catch every little thing unless you tell me.

Thanks,

Glenn

Golden 50

  • 5 of 5
We had a great 50th anniversary celebration at Sensational View. The home worked out perfectly for our family of 12. Less than a10 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg. Food City grocery store was near by and turned out to be a pleasent place to shop. (go on line and get a Food City loyalty card for lower prices before you arrive in Gatlinburg). The beds were comfortable. Internet access was never a problem. All 12 of us were logged in at one time or another with ipads smart phones and computers. Our 6 grand children had a great time taking advantage of many of the adventures the area has to offer. They went skydiving, zip lining, white water rafting, hiking, horse back riding and we even chatered a pontoon boat for night fishing at lake Douglas and of course shopping.The kitchen is small and well stocked. We were able to cook all our meals and eat in rather than go out for meals. The money we saved doing our own cooking paid for all the adventures for our group.The hot tub was perfect when we arrived and the entire place was clean and well stocked with towels and linens.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
The view from the cabin was great. The location was excellent - very close to all the attractions we were interested in. Coming from Louisiana where everything is flat the first time going up the driveway was a little scary but you get use to it. My entire family was very comfortable. We had 14.

To small

  • 3 of 5
The kitchen is extremely small for a cabin that supposedly sleeps 18. Btw a recliner, love seat and couch that does not pull out counts as a "bed". The hot tub had to much chemicals in it which burned people's eyes. The MAINTAINCE man showed up for a different reason and emptied it and refilled so it would be green anymore. The parking is really room for 3 maybe 4 cars at the most.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry, that this person did not feel that this cabin was up to her standards. However, there were several statements she made which were incorrect. First, she stated the cabin was too small for 18 people, we have had many 18 person groups who stayed in the cabin and really enjoyed the cabin and the great view it has. The square footage of the cabin is listed on this website as well as pictures of most all the rooms including the kitchen. Secondly there are beds and/or fold out beds to sleep 18 people, as well as linens for this # of people. The recliner, loveseat and couch with no hidabed is simply extra furniture for people to sit in. When she called about the hot tub, I immediately sent my maintenance man to the cabin to fix the problem, I called her to tell her he was coming, but she would not return my call. We had this problem taken care of with an hour. My family has stayed here and we have had 6 cars in the parking lot. Sure someone may have to move to let someone out, but this is the mountains after all, not a Walmart parking lot.

We have had nothing but great reviews on this cabin, I hope people do not judge the cabin by one inaccurate review. I'm sure if other people compare my rates to other 5 bedroom/4 bath cabins, that they will realize that this is truly a bargain and a nice cabin to stay in. The pictures of the cabin also tell the true story.

Sensational View!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! Our family had a wonderful stay in November, so much so that it has prompted me to write a review. We were immediately drawn to the view from every room, sensational does not begin to describe it! Then there is the cabin itself, spacious, tastefully decorated, comfortable couches, beds, plenty of linens, everything was in working order. Easily accomodated the 6 adults & 6 teenagers, not to mention the entertainment of the pool table, foosball, and hot tub. TVs in every room. We enjoyed the fire place, watching movies together, worked a couple of puzzles, not to mention very hearty games of cards & dominoes. My brothers laptop had great connection as well as all our cell phones. We cooked everyday, even Thanksgiving day we had a feast, turkey & dressing, homemade rolls, green bean casserole, & much much more all made from scratch. We truly enjoyed our stay & hope we get the chance to do this again someday! It was a very special occassion celebrating our parents 60th wedding anniversary in an extremely SENSATIONAL place!

Location

From the Owner

The view this cabin has is amazing, downtown Gatlinburg and surounding mountains, it is what visiting the mountains is all about. It is at the end of a road so is fairly secluded. The roads and driveway leading to the cabin are all paved.
