About the owner: Welcome to our cabin- High Expectations. We are happy to share our personal getaway with you- our special guest. We travel frequently from our home to visit the beauty and tranquility of our cabin backyard- the Smoky Mountains. We love to hike and immerse ourselves in the Park trails for that unique mountain experience and know that at the end of the day our restful, tranquil getaway awaits us. This is our home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Arts & Crafts Community: My husband and I have always enjoyed the outdoors and we wanted a special place that would give us the true spirit of the Mountains- a tranquil setting that would allow us time to unwind. We found this cabin with its Spellbound Setting- nestled among the trees facing Mt. Leconte and its Mountain Ranges. We have visited many National parks and we have never seen views where the Mountains were literally at your doorstep! But the beauty of it all is that it is also conveniently located near all the attractions of a tourist destination like Gatlinburg and only a few minutes from the Smoky Mountain National Park. We feel so lucky to have found our little piece of heaven- we know you will find it memorable too.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: High Expectations- our cabin's name- sits above the famous Arts and Crafts Community where many local artists and craftsmen have their special Mountain shops. This location is a great launching point to nearby area attractions such as Dollywood and Pigeon Forge, the Golf Course, the National Park, and the city of Gatlinburg. It is easily accessable with level parking which is very hard to find in many of these mountain cabins. Within two steps you are on the main floor of the cabin and so it is very convenient for Grandparents or small children.
We love to travel and always committed to memory small touches that make a vacation so special- we then decided that it was important to add these details and amenities to our own getaway so taht we can provide a level of ultimate comfort. We are confident you will find this to be a one of a kind mountain experience!
