Property Details

Updated: Sep 21, 2016
3 Bedroom Cabin - Location, Luxury, And Views!!

LOCATION LOCATION!! Half a mile to downtown Gatlinburg. 3-tier decks overlook the city and the mountains! Sit on the decks and enjoy the music playing from a distance.

Always A View has a spectacular view and is a three King bedroom, three bath, luxury cabin that sleeps eight. This cabin is close to everything Gatlinburg has to offer because it is located directly up on the mountain behind Ripley's Aquarium about half a mile.

You will enter a private driveway to a large flat concrete parking area with just five steps to enter the cabin. The main level offers a beautiful rock fireplace accented with a juniper log mantle, leather love seat and sofa. The sofa is a queen sleeper complete with a pillow top mattress topper, for extra comfort. The living area features a 48' flat screen TV with cable and DVD player and high speed wireless internet. One of the three bathrooms is located on the main level, with a granite top vanity and sink. The kitchen is fully equipped, has large beautiful windows and doors that lead out to one of the three decks to enjoy the mountain air, inspiring views of the Smoky Mountains and Gatlinburg below. The deck is equipped with a patio table with chairs and two love seats to enjoy dining outside. Night time is another treat when the view turns to the glow of the city lights below.

The spiral staircase leads upstairs to the game area complete with a pool table; board games, cards, poker chips, and many movies have been provided to entertain all ages on a 40-inch TV. There are two fully enclosed bedrooms upstairs, each include a king bed with Tempur-Pedic mattress toppers for extra comfort. Both bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TV's with DVD Players. There is a large shared full bath on this level that has a beautiful walk-in tile shower and a marble sink complete with a marble vanity table and bench seat. Beyond the game area is a cathedral ceiling with large windows and doors that leads out to the upper level deck complete with seating for a high rise view!

The lower level features the laundry room with washer and dryer and the third master suite with an adjoining full bathroom. This bedroom is equipped with a king bed with Tempur-Pedic mattress topper and 24-inch TV with DVD Player. The full bath on this level offers a tub/shower combo and marble top vanity sink. From this bedroom there are French doors leading out to a screened-in porch to sit and relax while enjoying the outdoors in privacy. Continue on through the screened-in porch to another deck with the relaxing hot tub and rockers.

Always a View combines a fantastic view, close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge attractions, with multiple amenities, a cabin to enjoy year-round!

Guests are provided a starter pack of paper towels, toilet tissue, hand soap, dishwasher and dish washing detergent for your immediate use.

About the Owner

Hello, My name is Jan. My husband, of 35 years, and I spent our Honeymoon in Gatlinburg. We have always had a love for the mountains and the beauty of the area. We wanted to share this experience with our family, and we were lucky enough to find this beautiful cabin that would accommodate all of us. We have went to great lengths to make this cabin perfect for us and our family, and we hope that it will be perfect for yours too!

It was wonderful.

  • 4 of 5

It took my breath away. Just everything about it was great. The mornings were the best sitting outside and watching the fog go away and then all the mountains would be in sight.

Great Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The Always A View cabin was just what our family needed for a quick weekend getaway before heading back to school. Our 3 boys, ages 8,12 and 14, were in heaven with all the amenities the cabin had to offer: pool table, video games, hot tub, and board games. Instead of wanting to go out and explore Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, they were perfectly happy hanging out at the cabin. It's hard to keep these 3 electronic wired boys entertained, but this cabin provided everything we needed for a quiet, family weekend. The location of the cabin to downtown Gatlinburg is amazin. In less than 5 minutes, you are in Gatlinburg, right near the Aquarium and our favorite Mexican restaurant (No Way Jose's) and have easy access to everything. We would go into town for a few hours each day and head back to the cabin to relax. Watching the clouds roll over the mountains throughtout the day and the city lights come to life each night were amazing. The kitchen, beds and bathrooms were perfect....we had no issues whatsoever and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this cabin.

Amazing View Rings True

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodations with an outstanding view of the mountains and Gatlinburg. Great two BDRM suite upstairs for the parents and kids, with a private BDRM down for, in this case, the grandparents. The spiral staircase was fun for the young and a bit of a challenge for the older people. The single lane road and down-slope cabin driveway made cabin access exciting. Encountered a black bear ambling across the mouth of the driveway on one approach. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

The view from the upstairs deck is breathtaking! Watch Gatlinburg come to life with the city lights at night, or enjoy the Smoky fog off the mountains during the mornings.
