Ridgetop cabin with panoramic views of Wears Valley and the Smoky Mountains to the south and west, toward Gatlinburg, Smokies, and Pigeon Forge to the north and east. Close enough to everything, yet semi-secluded and peaceful. 20 minute drive to Pigeon Forge, 27 mins. to Dollywood. 5 mins. to GSMNP entrance. If you want to visit Cades Cove early in the morning -- this is a great starting point. Beautiful drive through the Park -- cabin is located half way between Cades Cove and Gatlinburg.

Explore Townsend - the Quiet Side of the Smokies. Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center has free areas & minimal admission -- very interesting! Caves, bike riding & good restaurants in and near Townsend also.

There are only 8 cabins on this dead end road -- this is not one of those cookie cutter resorts! 3 cabins are owned by my family -- great for a reunion - ask about renting multiple cabins!

Summertime - Private swimming pool is shared by only 8 cabins.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Connie & Paul Hartke own several vacation rental properties. Connie manages our two cabins in the Smoky Mountains and runs our online real estate school. Paul co-owns a very busy real estate company in Northern Virginia and is our school instructor. We live work and play in Reston, VA, but always have "one foot" in the Smokies.

Why the Owner Chose Sevierville, TN, USA:
The Views. Come see and you will understand. This cabin has a small flat yard with swingset so it is great for small children and dogs of all sizes. Older kids will welcome the freedom to "roam and explore." We fell in love with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and bought our first cabin, Eagles View, in 2005. Above the Clouds was purchased in 2006. We love the friendly people in the area and hiking in the park. Both cabins were destroyed in a fire in March 2007, so we rebuilt and were renting again by Thanksgiving. We visit several times a year to hike to a new waterfall and keep our cabins in A+ shape.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
'Above the Clouds' has a unique central beam with wildlife carvings by a local artist. The cabin is truly wheelchair accessible, including the lower level game room! Located 1/2 hour or less from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge (10 miles), Sevierville and Townsend. Less than a 10 minute drive to the Smoky Mountain Park. 'Above the Clouds' is a deluxe cabin with the best views in the entire area. It borders the Great Smoky Mountains and overlooks Wears Valley with one of the most scenic, panoramic views in the Smokies. A previous guest said 'everyone should see this view at least once in their lifetime.' This rental is pet friendly and handicap accessible with a mountain boardwalk along the ridge over toward private community swimming pool.
