Enjoy a scenic mountain view from the deck of "Sweet Dreams". This cabin is a beautiful two bedroom two bathroom abode located in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. Sweet Dreams features all of the necessary amenities to supply you with a romantic honeymoon or a close family vacation in the mountains. Enjoy opening up the French doors that lead out onto a covered deck with a hot tub. Take in the mountain views with your morning coffee while enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.
Clingmans Dome is a special place in the Smoky Mountains. The views here are unlike any other place in the National Park. There is an observatory area that stands tall and juts out over the tree tops. You will feel as if you are standing above the clouds, well, you will be! The observatory rests at 6,643 feet high. Clingmans Dome is the highest attainable point of elevation in Great Smoky Mountains National Park! The views you will see here are spread out over 100 miles of visibility to the naked eye. Be sure to visit Clingmans Dome on a clear day to get the best visibility possible. On good days, you can see straight out across seven connecting states!
Enjoy all the pleasures of the Smoky Mountains in the quaint and charming "Dolly Bear"! Dolly Bear rests on a wooded lot that measures out to around five full acres. Here you will find up close and personal views of Mt. LeConte and the surrounding Smoky Mountains. This cabin provides one bedroom and one bathroom with handicap-accessible features. You will have a covered walkway, no steps, and a walk-in/roll-in shower. Dolly Bear has three decks, each of which is fully furnished with outside dining areas, ceiling fans, rockers, a glider, a hammock, a bench, a wooden swing and a hot tub. Imagine opening up the sliding glass doors off of the master bedroom wearing his and hers robes watching a Smoky Mountain sunrise come up. Dolly Bear is a pet-friendly Gatlinburg cabin tucked far enough away from downtown, yet still close enough for a quick venture out if you choose.
Mt. LeConte is a wonderful area for any adventurer. Being one of the most sought out and desired areas in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Mt. Leconte is graciously filled with endless amounts of history and jaw-dropping panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains. This mountain has several stopping points for those seeking "something more" than your average mountain view. Take your chances with Myrtle Point, The Eye of the Needle, Inspiration Point and the landing just before the Summit for a gamble that will leave you dripping with the richest views of the Smokies.
Enjoy relaxing in "Rose Hill Roost", a restored authentic Smoky Mountain log cabin. Rose Hill Roost resides in a peaceful wooded area with an amazing mountain view. This rustic cabin offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms and can sleep a maximum of ten guests. Enjoy two master king sized bedrooms, one of which has a stone fireplace! The outside back deck features a warm hot tub for relaxing and the front porch is dressed with rocking chairs and greets you with the most wanted views of the Smoky Mountains. The lower level of the cabin has a game room with a pool table and a half kitchen. This cabin is perfect for a couples vacation.
The Gatlinburg Overlook
Feast your eyes outward from the Gatlinburg Overlook! Here you will be able to easily drive up, park your vehicle and hop out to see one of the most famous views of the Smoky Mountains. You will behold the great Mt. LeConte straight ahead of you. If you peer your eyes downward, you will get a glimpse of downtown Gatlinburg. Stop here at sunset to see an outstanding and memorable moment. Wait a bit after night falls, and you will be gifted with the sights of all of the twinkling lights of downtown Gatlinburg below and a blanket of stars dangling above Mt. Leconte.
