                              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 ten-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 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. 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.
