'Time After Time' www.vrbo.com/565285

'Take Me Away' www.vrbo.com/465185

Ideal Location:

'The Good Life' is a stand alone, modern log cabin perfectly located, just inside the Smoky Mountain park entrance, minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Located on Cove Mountain, this cabin is situated on 3/4 acres and offers spectacular views of Mt. Le Conte (the coveted Gatlinburg view!)

Access:

The Good Life is located less than 1/3 mile from the main connecting road (Parkway) between downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Our ideal location makes it easy to get into town quickly, but remote enough to enjoy beautiful mountain views and the custom picnic area surrounded by woods.

The road leading to The Good Life driveway is wide, black top paved and accessible within minutes from the main road. No worries if you're not accustomed to 'mountain' travel! Guest will walk down a set of stairs with handrails to access cabin.

Cabin Luxury:

'The Good Life' was created for couples or a party of four seeking an experience of a lifetime with all the high end amenities you would expect including Hickory hardwood floors, handmade cedar log furniture, new large capacity front load washer/dryer, beautifully crafted, handmade cedar headboard entwined with mountain laurel in the master suite and twin beds in the second bedroom, creating a truly unique 'sleeping' experience.

Newly upgraded in 2014, our guests will enjoy granite in the kitchen and baths, all new appliances including a built in microwave and fully stocked kitchen, new bedding, quilts and rustic cabin décor.

Entertainment amenities include HDTV flat screens in both bedrooms and living room with prime satellite programming (including sports) and a full DVD movie library, free to our guests.

Truly Spectacular Views:

The open floor plan, cathedral ceilings and large windows allow for amazing views of Mt. Le Conte from the deck, living room and private picnic area.

Lay back in the master suite and enjoy the beautiful Cove Mountain views all without leaving the master bedroom!

The BEST Quality:

Our bedding, mattresses, quilts and pillows are all new!

A word about our mattress selection:

Comfort is priority; safety is a must. We selected our premium mattresses from 'The Bed Boss Company.'

Why?

The mattress material is healthy and toxin free, infused with bamboo and aloe, instead of common chemicals found in many commercial mattresses like lead, mercury and formaldehyde (which is very toxic). The deep memory foam base has a 9 layer support system which conforms to your pressure points, providing amazing comfort. If you suffer from allergies, you will appreciate this special selection. All mattresses in The Good Life are 'The Bed Boss' brand and are all new.

Only the best for our guests.

Outstanding Grill & Picnic Area!

Enjoy the professionally landscaped grill & picnic garden all to yourself!

This special property provides an amazing and spacious area for grilling, enjoying an afternoon picnic, outdoor games or sitting back taking in the beautiful views of Mt. Le Conte, just steps outside your cabin door.

Follow the custom landscape walk way from the front door down to your very own private grill/picnic area. Turn on the LED string of lights after dark for a truly unique evening experience!

Grill area amenities include a 4 seat picnic table, couple's swing, charcoal grill, over size hammock & evening LED lights.

Reserve an 'experience' and make some memories at The Good Life.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Recently got back from 5 nights at "The Good Life" cabin. Wow, my wife and I were amazed at how beautiful and clean the cabin was. Not only that but the view from the deck of the cabin was amazing. The owners were friendly and welcoming and you really felt like they wanted you to have the best possible Time. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone!

Owner's Response: Hi Richard,

I'm glad you have a wonderful stay at The Good Life! I've talked to many guests about reserving and understand the apprehension, especially when the "rental" didn't turn out like it was described. I've heard many stories! Mike and I have been "guests" and have high expectations when we reserve a property. A clean, well kept, stunning cabin is a must!!

It was great having you. Come back and visit us again soon.

Have a great summer!

Angela & Mike

Great time

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from 3 great nights at "the good life" cabin. What an amazing place, both my 3 and 6 year old boys cried the day we left because they had so much fun. In addition, the owners really care that you have the best experience while staying at the cabin. I highly recommend anyone traveling to this area to stay at the "good life"!

Owner's Response: Hi Richard,

Thank you for the great review and for staying at The Good Life! Your boys must have had a wonderful time exploring the area :) I've told many of our guests that we've been on the consumer side of renting a vacation property and understand the process can be a bit unsettling, knowing very little about the owners and the property itself. We want the experience to be just as amazing as our cabins are!

Come back and visit us again anytime :)

Sincerely,
Angela

Spring Break Trip with our Boys

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time that my husband and I have rented a cain from Mike and Angela. The cabin was beautiful and so clean. The views from the balacony and master bedroom were breathtaking! The hot tub was relaxing after a long day of hiking. My husband grilled out one everning using the patio area and we enjoyed eating dinner together with our family over looking the mountains. We had an amazing time with our two teenage boys and can't wait to go back again next year! Thank you Mike and Angela for the wonderful family memories! God Bless!

Owner's Response: Hi Shelly,

Thank you so much for the nice review AND for coming back to stay with us again for a second time :) Loved the hammock photo and pic of your hubby enjoying his meal in the grill area. We wanted to create an outdoor area that also included a view of Mt Le Conte and Mike pulled it off! We're happy this cabin created great Spring Break memories for you and your boys. As always, we welcome you back again anytime :)

Have a wonderful summer!

Spring Break trip

  • 5 of 5
We went to the mountains for our son's spring break. He and I had been to the Cove Mountain area before and noticed some of Mike and Angela's properties while driving around. I contacted them via VRBO and Angela suggested The Good Life for our family. We were not disappointed! The cabin was clean, had great views of Mt. LeConte -- we hiked up to LeConte Lodge for one night and when you see the view from The Good Life you get a sense of "wow, we hiked all the way up THERE?" After a two day overnight hike, the hot tub felt great.

The location is great -- it's right between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, and if you're like us, who enjoy spending time in GSMNP even more than the two towns, the bypass is only a short drive from the cabin. (I'm always amazed when folks say "What national park? There's a park in Gatlinburg?)

All of the light switches and drawers were labeled which was very helpful -- I can't even remember which switch goes with which light/fan in our own house half the time. It was a little cool for us to use the picnic area to eat but it's a great asset to the cabin. I would highly recommend The Good Life, or any of the Weems' properties, for a great mountain trip.

Owner's Response: Joe,

It was our pleasure having you and your family stay at The Good Life! We try to make each vacation experience the best possible. When we "created" this cabin, we wanted to customize a really cool outdoor area, with a view of Mt Le Conte. So while you grill and sip a beverage, you can gaze at the mountains and sunset. I'm glad you and your son enjoyed hiking the trails and soaking in the hot tub. Sounds perfect.

Come back and visit us again anytime, we would love to have you.

Sincerely,
Angela
