Because Rocky Top Lookout is only a mile from Rocky Top Sports World, it’s a great choice of lodgings if you’re in town for a sports tournament. Then again, it’s a great choice if you’re visiting the area for any reason. The 4-bedroom log cabin is packed with amenities, offers awe-inspiring views of the Great Smoky Mountains, and is just a short drive to the local attractions.
Rocky Top Lookout was renovated from top to bottom in spring 2016, so just about every aspect of the cabin sparkles, glows, or gleams. The oversize windows of the open-plan living/dining/kitchen area let in plenty of sunshine to show off the burnished wood-planked floors, walls, and ceilings. They also enable you to relish the views of Mount LeConte and the old-growth woodlands even as you sprawl out on the living room sofa or sit down to eat at the dining table. A fireplace adds a golden glow and warmth to the space in winter; in summer the ceiling fan brings a welcome breeze.
The living area has a 55” flat-screen TV, but if you want to view the big game or a favorite movie, you might want to head downstairs to the home theater. The screen is huge—120”—with 7.1 surround sound and a web-enabled setup with cable channels and Blu-ray. Ten people can kick back in its theater-style seats. After watching a movie here, you may never want to go to your local cinema again!
Downstairs also has a game room with its own TV, plus bumper pool and a multigame arcade. Should you work up a thirst while playing, you can grab a drink from the game room’s wet bar with mini fridge, rather than run upstairs to the kitchen.
Speaking of the kitchen, it’s as pristine as the rest of Rocky Top Lookout, from the stainless-steel appliances to the ample counter space. If you’re in the mood for barbecue, you can use the park-style charcoal grill right outside. You can dine outside too, at the picnic table on the main level’s covered deck. The sight of falcons soaring over the Smoky Mountains and the sound of the fresh breeze whispering through the towering trees will make even the simplest meal seem like a feast.
The decks have plenty of rocking chairs as well, so that you can listen to chickadees and larks greet the day and enjoy stargazing while tree frogs and crickets serenade at night. Ceiling fans make the deck a cool place to revel in the view even during a hot summer day.
All 4 of Rocky Top Lookout’s bedrooms are designed with comfort and relaxation in mind. The downstairs bedroom includes a king-size bed. One of the upstairs bedrooms features a queen-size bed, while the 2nd upstairs room has queen-size bunk beds, so that 4 people can sleep there. Each room has its own flat-panel TV.
The master suite, however, is especially luxurious. Located on the main floor, it includes a king-size bed and a 55” web-enabled flat-screen TV. Perhaps best of all, its spacious en-suite bathroom boasts a roomy jetted tub and a wall of windows so that you can bask in the view of the lush woodlands while you bathe.
Rocky Top Lookout’s other amenities include free WiFi, a washer and dryer, a full bathroom on each floor, and a sofa in the living area that opens into a queen-size bed, enabling the cabin to sleep 12 people in all. Its best amenity, though, might be its convenient location. As well as being just a mile from Rocky Top Sports World, the cabin is only a mile from the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and shops. Less than 15 minutes away is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; ditto downtown Gatlinburg, home to an aquarium, thrill rides, the Guinness World Records Museum, mini golf, restaurants, and more.
Rocky Top Lookout is a perfect home base for your best getaway yet. So book your stay today—before somebody else beats you to it!

I would love to give this more stars or say I loved it, but I want to be honest. It was average.
Pros: If you have games at the Sports Complex then this is a great option for you. The scenery is fine, but it is in more of a neighborhood,....you do get to see a nice view of the mountains, but also the neighborhood. It is easy to get to downtown Gaitlinburg. The decor is pleasant.
Cons: We thought the beds were uncomfortable. The pillows were very cheap. You are not given many towels and they are cheap, towels, so be prepared to do a lot of laundry/make sure to bring your own detergent....also your own toiletries. One person said there were no oven mitts..and they are correct. I believe there was only one kitchen towel and it was old. You can hear everything on every level in this home. So if you have kids playing in the basement you will hear it upstairs and vice versa. If there is a game at the complex going on and you are staying in one of the bedrooms upstairs you will hear them cheering and the whistles being blown early in the morning on the weekend if there is a game.
Don't get me wrong, the cabin itself was probably a 3.5, but the amenities were lacking.
Rick, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share. Your input, as well as all our guest feedback is vitally important as we want all guests expectations to be met upon arrival. We apologies for the area you feel we fell short. We provide a complete set of towels for as many as the property will sleep. We appreciate you pointing out that each cabin is provided a starter kit of paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, dishwasher and laundry soap and each garbage can is lined. If you are a family that foresee using lots of these items you can bring them with you or there are grocery store close by. We appreciate you letting us know about the oven mitts, we have put new ones in the cabin. Again, thank you for taking the time to share. We hope you will stay with us again on your next trip to the Smokies, giving us the opportunity to exceed expectations.
The Rocky Top Lookout property was beautiful and held 6 people and 2 dogs very comfortably. The kitchen was nice, except that there were no pot holders, so we used the towels to handle our hot dishes and one of us got burnt in doing so. Upon first glance of the cabin when we first arrived, it seemed like a clean and perfect cabin. After we settled in, we realized that the place wasn't as clean as we thought. The blankets/comforters did not appear to be washed, as there was dog hair and people hair all over them. People found socks, baby bottles, and lots of dust and hair under their beds. There were lots of light switches that we couldn't find a use for and the master bedroom was missing the cable remote. Other than those things, we really enjoyed our stay and enjoyed all of the amenities. From the hot tub, to the arcade machine, and the movie theatre, we had a blast playing games and watching movies. The location is great. A short drive to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, as well as a beautiful view of the mountains. One thing we didn't realize until we got here was how close we were to the sports complex. It was nice because we ran over to the track and did workouts with ease and another great view. I would recommend this cabin and would give a 5 star rating, but I took off one star for the lack of cleanliness.
Thank you Hallie for taking time to review Rocky Top Lookout. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and amenities. It is our goal to meet and exceed guests expectations upon arrival. We apologies that we fell short in the housekeeping area and staff has been made aware of the situation. If we were made aware of the situation while you were here, we would have sent someone out to remedy the situation. Again, thank you for sharing your comments. We looking forward to having you stay with us again.
