About the Owner

We are the Miller's (from left, Blaise, Bryce Brent and Dina). This picture was taken sitting in front of Bella Vista's huge stack stone fireplace.

We originally fell in love with the Lodge becuase of it's fantastic views of Mount LeConte and the massive wall of windows in which to 'take it all in'. Over the past year, we have renovated EVERYTHING in the lodge; installing new hardwood floors, antler chandeliers, carpet, furniture, appliances, lighting, cabinetry...and...and...and...

It was a lot of work, but the end results is a fantastic, top-of-the-line, mountain lodge that your family and friends will love to come home to and won't ever want to leave!!

We hope you love Bella Vista Lodge as much as we do.

Great place and view

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding cabin, we would recommend to anyone. The only negatives were the duct tape in top floor bathtub, broken chair outside, dryer that was scary hot but did not dry clothes, and wifi was bad... These were minor inconveniences that did not deter from our most enjoyable stay.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. Very close to Gatlinburg...about 10 minute drive. Great view of the mountains, and a very comfortable cabin. The 4 bedrooms were very comfortable, and the 5th kids bedroom was a great feature. Movie area downstairs had a great sound system. The hot tub was a really nice feature also, and so was having the charcoal grill available. Overall, great place to vacation with no real complaints.

Very clean and spacious. Beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

There were three families and we had more than enough room! There were five kids and they claimed the huge basement to themselves! However, they could've stayed in the bunk room because even with two bunk beds it still had plenty of room for them to play. The adults loved all the places on the wrap around porch you could sit to enjoy the gorgeous views! The furniture was large and plenty of seating for everyone. Another bonus was the location. Definitely felt like you were in a cabin in the woods, but the back roads were a quick trip to Gatlinburg without sitting in all that traffic. Location is great!

The owners were so easy to work with and answered all my tiresome questions. When we initially arrived the code didn't work. My husband called Blaise and he answered immediately and remedied the situation within two minutes. We also got our deposit back within a week of returning from our trip! Couldn't have asked for a better overall experience!!

Beautiful bargain!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this cabin. The design and the view were great. Four large bedrooms with king beds made this the perfect cabin for our group. The additional bedroom downstairs with two sets of bunk beds would make it great for kids as well. It is conveniently located and a great bargain!

Wonderful cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin. It is so roomy for a large group with all the amenities that you'll want. It was snowing during our stay but we were nice & cozy with central heating as well as the beautiful gas log fireplace. So nice to just turn the dial to have a warm fire in literally a minute (and no ashes to deal with)!

We did not use the hot tub.

The cabin was spacious and clean with an amazing view of Mt Leconte when the snow clouds cleared. Centrally located to Gatlinburg, Seiverville, & Pigeon Forge where there is plenty to do!

The only drawbacks were that the dryer did not work very well (took 2 hrs to dry a small load) and the jetted tub does not work in the master bedroom. (Note that you can take a regular bath, just no working jets in the tub).

No doubt these little problems will be taken care of promptly as the pride of ownership shows throughout this cabin. Looking forward to staying again❤

Owner's Response: Dryer vent needs to be cleaned out, will get that taken care of. Have service scheduled to fix the broken on/off switch on the jetted tub in the bedroom. Thanks for visiting Bella Vista Lodge and glad you had a nice vacation.

Bella Vista Lodge - a bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista was everything we dreamed for a family of 13 on vacation! The rooms were clean, spacious, all bedrooms included a TV. The bunk room worked super for our 4 young grandchildren. The hot tub was clean, the mountain view spectacular, the kitchen was well equipped, the three bathrooms were nice, and the seating plentiful. The fireplace was a nice touch for cool evenings. The owners provided us with detailed instructions. We will be back again!

From the Owner

Our search for this cabin crossed several states and a year and a half. We found lots of beautiful locations in other areas but to quote our youngest son 'It's so BORING...there is nothing to do but look at the view!' We hated to admit it but he was right...Where could there be a place that had the serenity, and views that the adults desired, while having enough 'fun' to hook the kids??? The answer was Gatlinburg, TN!! We found some of the best mountain views in the South in this area. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have lots to do for our boys, from hiking, to white water rafting, to fine dining and live shows, to horseback riding and Go-Karts. We now that this area will entertain EVERYONE in our family for years to come...

From the Owner

We looked low and high, but could not find a place that 'wowed' us. When we found 'Bella Vista', there was no mistaking we had found what we were searching for! Bella Vista Lodge combines a fantastic mountain view but unintimidating roads to get there. A real rarity in these parts! It also provides plenty of indoor and outdoor space to accomodate large groups while still keeping a cozy and intimate feel. The Lodge is in the Arts & Crafts District, which is a quaint area with lots of small family-run artisian shops - you don't even have to buy, just go in and talk with the kind folks - they are very friendly people. We take pride in knowing that other families can create wonderful memories to last a lifetime while staying at Bella Vista. Please know we will do everything possible to make sure you have a great vacation in the Smokies!
