About the property

The Pinnacle Lodge is a brand new cabin just completed. We are working very hard to maintain this cabin as if it were new for as long as it is possible. And we thank you for your assistance in this endeavor. Again we have another cabin that is more suited for larger parties 12-14 and we do allow events and or parties at that cabin. Located very close by as well.

This spaciously designed cabin is situated such that all porches are private and face the beautiful Smokey Mountain National Park.

The choice lot is private as it is the second to the last property within this resort. So there is minimal activity including but not limited to vehicular traffic. Our cabin is monitored 24/7 by ADT. So you will feel very secure as you are given codes to and are welcome to use the alarm system throughout your stay. Whether you will be home or not of course.

The cabin sleeps 8 comfortably, having 3 large bedrooms with King-size beds. One of the many features unique to this cabin are the top-of-the-line Tempurpedic mattresses selected for each bedroom. See pics. Additionally, there are two large pull out sleepers located on both the main floor and game room floor. Each of the large bedrooms on the third floor provide privacy from the rest of the cabin, yet each is provided with a 40'' smart TV and a Blu-ray/DVD player. Each of the bedrooms have large bathrooms glass shower doors and granite vanities. The bathrooms will have shower towels, hand towels and wash clothes.

Extra linens are available. Please contact us prior to your stay if you know that you will need extra linens for some reason.

The cabin’s 3 full baths will each have 3 or 4 towels and 3 or 4 wash clothes. We do keep an inventory of the linens and appreciate your assistance.

The kitchen is well thought out with plenty of counter space as well as storage for pots and pans, glass ware and other cooking items. The center island is a large area area where one can prepare food. Three wooden stools decorate the island allowing for family and friends to gather while dinner is cooking.

The layout of this cabin is ideal. The three floor plan allows one family member to be sleeping, reading or watching a different movie on the third floor while others watch a movie on the main floor or cook and the children can be in the game room/theater on the first floor playing one of the many games, watching a movie in the theater or playing Xbox in the large screen. The cabin is incredibly well insulated and is therefore quiet throughout.

The den is situated catty corner to the kitchen and a 55'' Smart TV is located in the Den/Living room. The TV strategically situated so that one can watch tv while cooking etc. The den has a beautiful view of Mt. Leconte from every window and of course the porch on this floor opens out to a breathtaking view of the mountains in total. Where rocking chairs and a table are available for seating.

The dining table sits 8 -10 very comfortably and additional seats are available if needed from the island in the kitchen. Or sitting and eating at the island can be fun as well.

Two large couches and a love seat adorn this den and there is plenty of room for all. The fire place is completed with river rock and has many different settings, etc.

Downstairs is a large Game/Theater Room. There is an Xbox 360 hooked up to this theater.

We have 4 controllers and a few games. Feel free to bring your own games again as ours are limited. It is quite an experience to play Xbox on a 100” screen with surround sound. Finally there is an additional queen pullout bed in the game room. The game room has its own 50” Smart Samsung tv as well. Visual from all areas of the room as it sits on an adjustable stand.

There is also a multicade arcade that has 60 different games from Frogger to Defender to Galaga and many more. The Black light air hockey table is a lot of fun. And can be played with or without the lights on. The pool table is situated perfectly in the center of the room and in front of the TV. So you can take in a football game while shooting pool looking right out at the gorgeous Smokey Mountains.

The washer and dryer can be found in the closet at the end of the games room.

PLEASE IF TOWELS OR SHEETS NEED TO BE WASHED DO NOT OVERLOAD THE WASHER OR DRYER. Whether clothing or towels this can ruin laundry quickly. The machines are for guests who want to wash a couple of items. They are not used for the cabin laundry. Or large loads.

Overloading the machines will cause snagging of your clothing or other laundry put into the machine. It has happened to us on many occasions when guests have overloaded the machines. Thanks for your assistance here as well.

If you would like your beds changed during your stay please tell me which day. And this will be taken care of for you.

Located at the other end of the game room is a sitting area with a queen size pull out sofa. This is a very quiet spot to read in the mornings. However, this cabin has several spots where one can curl up and be very comfortable for sure.

He sunrises from our porch are literally something that is worth seeing. Folks pay money to climb up to and stay at the top of mount leconte so they will be able to see the sunrise. Certainly the views are different. But sunrises at the Pinnacle Lodge are incredible. It is so quiet sitting in the porch with a cup of tea or coffee waiting for the sunrise.

Finally, the cabin is totally stocked with all you need to feel at home. The beds and bathrooms will have linens, towels and wash clothes. And per above a stocked kitchen. Including a crock pot, pots and pans, 2 coffee pots(a Keurig and mr coffee), toaster, blender, utensils, glass ware, mugs, cooking equipment for the grill and cleaning products.

This is an executive family cabin. It is priced highly competitively. This is obvious when one considers what we have to offer versus other similar cabins.


I don’t want you to need anything except the items that you have brought with you. And whatever you bring in the way of grocery items.

We ask that if you need anything during your stay please shoot us a text at 813 294-4692. We are Gatlinburg residents and manage our own property.

We appreciate your booking very much and will do all we can to make your stay incredible.

Again we are local residents, manage our own property and therefore you should expect a next level cabin and vacation.

Finally we appreciate your taking care of the cabin as if it were your home throughout your stay.

If there is anything that I should do to improve such please don’t hesitate to let me know as I am always working to make our home feel like yours.

Very Sincerely,

Ms Kathy Shields

First Class Cabin in the Smoky Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful, relaxing week in this beautiful cabin in the Smoky Mountains. Everything about this cabin is first class - from the location close to the town of Gatlinburg, hiking venues, Dollywood, etc, to the stunning view from our back porch(es) of the Smoky Mountains, to all the amenities that the cabin had to offer, such as granite countertops, king size beds, etc. We had two families, both with kids, and everyone had plenty of room. Even with a rainy day in the middle of our vacation, the cabin had lots of indoor activities to keep the kids occupied, between the game room pool table and air hockey game to the amazing movie theater room. We look forward to coming back!

Perfect Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Pinnacle Lodge! The cabin is gorgeous! Everything is brand new and in perfect condition. The house smelled clean and new. The linens, beds, pillows, and furniture were all clean and comfortable. The house was very well supplied with everything we could have possibly needed. The location is perfect for a trip to Gatlinburg. You're only minutes from downtown, but you feel like you're in the wilderness. There are beautiful, unobstructed views of the mountains. Although the cabin is in a neighborhood with other cabins on either side, you feel isolated - like you have the mountains to yourself. This cabin is the second from the end of the street, so it's a perfect location. The game room, the hot tub, the theatre room - this cabin is exceptional. Kathy was a joy to work with and made sure we had absolutely everything we needed. We can't wait to go back. Thanks again, Kathy! We hope to be back soon!
