Haq,
What A View really does enhance a vacation to the Gatlinburg area. So many cabins can just be blah, but we're regularly trying to tweak What A View to make sure we're cutting edge and keep our guests entertained and satisfied. We want it to feel like your home away from home. We love our TripAdvisor guests.......they're the best! So glad you and the family enjoyed it. Come on back for a graduation celebration.
Regards,
Marie and Michael

We spent a week at this cabin for our honeymoon and it was VERY clean, beautifully decorated, and plenty of room. We loved access to the hot tub on the deck and enjoyed coffee on the rockers in the morning. We even saw a bear close up on our way out of the area one morning! I would highly recommend booking this cabin! The owners even had a neatly produced binder full of recommendations in the area. The only con I would say is that we needed more storage for clothing. Everything else was WONDERFUL! Thank you so much for a great stay for our honeymoon. We enjoyed it thoroughly!

We didn’t know you were honeymooners. Congratulations. We’re always so honored that newlyweds choose What A View to start their life together. We’re adding nightstands with drawers to improve our storage. Thanks for staying an entire week with us. You get to really experience everything What A View has to offer! Wishing you years of happiness.

David,
Glad we were able to deliver amazing. We really want to deliver the best vacation experience for our guests. The bears are a premium upgrade as they're steady visitors. We wish we could promise every guest they'll see them but we're in tough negotiations with Mama Bear. She wants lifetime Krispy Kreme donuts to show up every day.

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Come back and visit.

“Great view!”
Reviewed July 10, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We loved our time at ‘what a view’ cabin. Me, my husband and two boys (age 8, 5) all had ample space to be together and especially enjoyed the game room. The view really was amazing and we enjoyed breakfast and dinner out on the deck. The pool was only a five minute drive and was tucked away in a shaded area. A great experience overall.

Sara,
The cabin is such a great place for a family vacation. When I was your kids age I would have hung out in the game room all night. You’re the first one to comment on the pool, so glad you enjoyed it. It’s a nice pool. We also have a nice golf course in the community. We hope to host you again.

“A lovely, peaceful stay. Everyone enjoyed it.”
Reviewed June 30, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We had an awesome time. Great location, convenient to downtown Gatlinburg but not too close. Nice feeling of seclusion with a beautiful view of the smoky mountains. Cabin was well appointed and everything was in great shape. We would definitely consider staying here again.

“Just book this cabin and forget about the others.”
Reviewed June 10, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This cabin is breathtaking. Photos just do not do it justice. The interior was immaculate and well decorated. The kitchen is well stocked. The beds are super comfy! The game room has shuffle board, foosball and pool table. This is a great cabin for couples and for families. Very close to Gatlinburg which made commuting so much easier. Owners were great to communicate with. It's top notch.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed June 4, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The cabin was great, the view was wonderful. The only surprise for us was getting up to the cabin on the narrow road with little visibility of what might be coming on the other side. Very sharp turns. This kept us from staying out past dark as I was not confident of driving in the dark on the mountain road. Again, beautiful place.

Kim,
We’re glad you enjoyed What A View. Mountain roads do surprise infrequent visitors. The road to our cabin doesn’t even take 1-2 minutes from the bottom of the valley to our cabin. The street we live on has a handful of cabins so you almost never encounter another car and everyone is driving slow. The payoff for a short mountain climb results in one tremendous view and a cabin designed for a great vacation experience. We thank you for visiting from Texas and we hope the next time you’re in the area you’ll consider another visit with us.
