Property description

Mountaintop Experience offers a comfortable authentic cabin atmosphere and a wonderful mountain-top setting with spectacular panoramic fifteen mile views into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. If incredible mountain views are at the top of your 'must have' list, this cabin will not let you down.

From the back of the cabin no other cabins are visible. It's amazing what lengths some owners go through to take pictures that appear to show privacy! We have been burned several times in this way.

Main Level: Spacious floor plan with cathedral ceilings throughout and hardwood floors (except in master and baths), Great Room with Stone Gas Fireplace and Full Length Picture Windows, 42' HD LED TV, DVD/CD player/AM/FM Surround Sound, Updated Kitchen with brand new Stainless Steel/Black Appliances, Dining Room with large table and seating for six, Countertop seating for two, two piece Bath, Master King Bedroom (with Full Bath, TV, DVD player and access to upper deck), Uncovered deck spanning the length of the cabin with gas grill, a pub table with three chairs, two single rockers and one double rocker.

Lower Level: 10' ceiling throughout lower level, Game Room with Stone Gas Fireplace, Pool Table, 42' HD LED TV, BluRay DVD player, Wii console (bring your own games and remotes), Two Queen Bedrooms (one with access to lower deck and TV/DVD; one with TV and Wi-Fi Router for Internet Access), Full Bath, Separate Utility Room with Washer and Dryer, Pull out Sofa bed, Covered Deck spanning the length of the cabin with Hot Tub, two-person swing and rocking chair.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Owners Charles, Debbie, Jeff, Lori, and Charlotte Thompson Charlie, Jeff, and Lori, all engineers, appreciate the structural integrity of Mountaintop Experience. Debbie, a teacher, can't stop marvalling at the view. Charlotte, our eleven-year old enjoys the hot tub most of all. She always makes sure to remember her goggles. All professional hot tub swimmers wear goggles!

Why the Owner Chose Wears Valley:
My husband and I having been visiting the Great Smoky Mountains for twenty-four years. We've stayed in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Seveirville, Walden's Creek, Townsend, and Wears Valley. We love them all. Since we live in Knoxville, several weekend trips a year, even on the spur of the minute, are not out of the question. We've stayed in many different cabins. The problem was that there was always something that could have been better. A cabin with a great view would offer no privacy. One with privacy had no view. We wanted a cabin with as many amenities as possible that we could count on consistently. A 'known quantity' if you will. Of all the cabins we've stayed in over the years, none can hold a candle to Mountaintop Experience. Previously, it was named A Wilderness Lodge. However, since it isn't in the wilderness and it isn't a lodge, we changed the name to Mountaintop Experience. We hope you have a wonderful experience on our portion of this mountaintop.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
One of the best things about Mountaintop Experience is all of the windows on the back of the cabin. You can simply sit on the sofa and enjoy the incredible views.
