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!

Great cabin with great views!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin very much! There are great views at every level and a bear came by one day. The drive up from Gatlinburg is very winding but not very long. The parking is level and room for two SUV size vehicles.

This cabin is great for families. But, not good for older people. The stairs to each level are curved and hard for older people to use. They are carpeted, though, and we were fine, except for my elderly aunt.

There is no bedroom on the main level. The couch makes a bed but it is not as comfortable as some we have seen. We bought a bed topper and it worked fine for my elderly aunt. The bathtub on the main level does not work. This is a real problem if you are staying on that level and need to dress there.

The lower level is a sanctuary and very quiet. Very nice. The upper bedrooms are very nice and shared bath is large.

If I am going with my friends, I will use this cabin again. If I am going with my parents, I will not because of the stairs.

Great visit!

Birthday getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for opening your cabin to us. We had a great stay. Love the pool table & the hot tub. The cabin was very cozy and inviting after being out all day. Loved the deck, I could sit outside for hours and listen to the birds. We found a new favorite restaurant....Calhoun's. The beer cheese & pretzels were to die for. We went to the Dixie Stampede....again. We also went to Dollywood for the first time. Great trip....hard to leave.

Fantastic cabin

  • 5 of 5

We brought 3 couples for a motorcycle trip. Plenty of parking. Upon walking into the living area with a floor to ceiling view of the mountains, we were all truly stunned. Each of the bedrooms were sparkling clean and beautifully decorated with lodge furnishings. In the evenings we loved gathering on the porch to gaze at the moon and listen to the sound of the forest we were nestled within. The hot tub was perfect! In the morning, the smoke hovering over the mountain tops was a heavenly way to start the day. The huge dining and cooking space was perfect for meals and the kitchen was well appointed. The game room was fun to play in, and we all enjoyed a game of pool. We all enjoyed our stay immensely and didn't want to leave. High marks to the owners who were so helpful and friendly before and during our stay!

Mountainside Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 (1 infant) visited for our family vacation. The moment we walked in the door at this beautiful cabin we fell in LOVE with it. It looks just like the pictures! We liked that the cabin is close to everything but yet secluded. Even with all of us in the cabin it felt warm and comfortable yet spacious. It is well decorated with comfortable furnishings and big windows to enjoy the mountain views. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, cooking utensils and dishes. The game room was a big hit with all of us especially on those rainy days and the fun arcade machines were a big hit for our family. It was so nice to sit on the decks in the morning and listen to the music from the strip and then enjoy the hot tub in the evening.

During our stay, we visited the Ripleys Aquarium, Ober Gatlinburg, The Dixie Stampede and Dollywood. We would recommend all of these and you are close to all the attractions.

Jan did a superb job making our stay perfect, she answered all my questions promptly from the very beginning.

We HIGHLY recommend this property for your won't regret it! Our grandkids told us several times "this was the best vacation EVER" and none of us really wanted to leave!

Thank you for sharing this beautiful cabin for us to enjoy.

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.
