Overview

Updated: Mar 3, 2015
Newly Upgraded Log Cabin with Beautiful Mountain Views, Custom Grill Area

Check out our other cabins in the same great location:

'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!

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.

About the Owner

Prior professionals in the 'career world' (RN and professional photographer) we decided to step off the corporate roller coaster in 2009 and plunge into real estate. 'The Good Life' became available after a 4 year wait and boy was it worth the wait! A Gatlinburg treasure, we enjoy creating an experience for our guests, not just a place to sleep.

Got to see my snow!

  • 5 of 5
Well I have to say I got what I asked for! My husband and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary at the Cabin. We are from Florida and wanted to see snow! We got that and more! From what we heard the mountain hadn't seen that kind of snow in years. The cabin couldn't have been a better place to be. It was so cozy, and comfortable. The view from the back deck were so wonderful, but even out taking a walk up and down the street it was all breathtaking! Now with that being said I believe the best part was the true and sincere concern we got from Mike and Angela. Once the first snow storm hit us on the third day we were there, they called and checked on us everyday. Wanted to make sure we were safe, ie the roads, power and making sure we had all we needed for the possibility of being snowed in. It truly made us feel like we were more than a rental payment. I have stayed at several rentals all over the country using VRBO and although I have never had a bad experience Mike and Angela seemed to go above and beyond! Thanks for sharing your cabin with us! It truly was one memorable anniversary! I have had my fill of snow for awhile, cant wait for another trip to one of your properties, maybe summer next time or your beach house :) Thanks again it truly was a wonderful week!

Thank you so much for the great review! I'm glad you had a wonderful anniversary and I know this one you won't forget...LOL! We like to make sure everyone has a memorable experience at our cabins. It was a joy talking with you and your husband and thank you for the "snow" pictures :)

Take care!

Modern Luxury Cabin Home

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was furthest down on the lot and therefore offered the most privacy. The porch and hot tub had best views. The French doors are perfect with all blinds open. Great airy feel. Extremely comfortable and secure. Price in semi-off season made this a great bang for buck stay.

Great Cabin, Great Location Even Better Views

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was perfect, very clean, close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, yet nestled away just enough to feel secluded. The owners were very accomodating and great to work with. The location of the cabin provides an awesome perspective of the Smokies! The outdoor space and grilling area was great. My wife and I both agreed that we cant wait to go back and will definitely look to reserve this cabin again....hopefully sooner than later! Thanks!

Great get away to celebrate our engagement!

  • 5 of 5
We booked this cabin for a getaway to celebrate our recent engagement. The owners were great to work with. They were very personable and were only a phone call away when needed. The location was great, less than 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and about the same distance to pigeon forge. The views are spectacular! Large windows allowed a mountain view from just about every angle of the cabin. Great outdoor spaces, hammock, swing, grill area were so clean and well kept. The hot tub on the balcony was perfectly positioned to allow for an amazing view of the mountains, im still pruny from spending so much time in there! The interior of the cabin was so beautifully decorated as well! Upon entering we were greeted by birds chirping (from a sound machine upstairs) which really set the cabin feel. There were plenty of movies, books, and board games to keep us entertained on our nights in which I thought was a great touch. You can tell that the owners take a lot of pride in this place as it is very clean and well kept and they seem to have thought of everything. The only down fall was that there was no Wifi which didn't prove to be that big of a problem because we stayed so busy. We hate that we didn't find this place sooner and have had to stay in some less than mediocre cabins in the past. We had a blast and were not ready to leave to come home. We will definitely book this cabin again for our annual mountain trips.

Owner's Response: Hi Kadee & Chad,

Thank you for the nice review! We are happy you both had a wonderful time at The Good Life. It was great fun putting this cabin together, and especially creating the outdoor area. Our clean team is the best and they work hard to keep the cabins in tip top shape. The "payoff" for having amazing views is limited cable on the mountain. Hopefully in the future, we will have some good options in the area.

Come back and visit us again anytime!

Sincerely,
Angela Weems

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was exactly what my family needed. The cabin was perfect, very clean, close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, yet tucked away just enough to feel secluded. The owners have thought of everything, I loved being able to cook a good meal and not need anything other than the food. The Christmas decorations were beautiful and the views where amazing. This being our first trip to the Smoky Mountains was more than I expected, we can't wait to go back!

Best Place to Celebrate Christmas!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Gatlinburg will be hard to top in the future! The Good Life cabin completely exceed our expectations and we could have not asked for a better setting to spend Christmas with our family. The cabin was amazing, the Christmas decorations were beautiful and the view was breathtaking! The owners went above and beyond making sure our Christmas celebrations at their cabin were extra special for us. I cannot recommend The Good Life enough for anyone who is looking for a relaxing vacation in the mountains! I cannot wait to visit again! Thank you Mike and Angela!
