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.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose East

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.

What makes this cabin unique

Incredible views and the perfect location- away from it all and yet within 5-6 miles to all the area attractions- you get the best of both worlds- these are some of the unique benefits we offer at High Expectations!!

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. The cabin is easily accessible 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.

As fellow travelers, we understand how important it is to have a home away from home. We have taken every opportunity to add not only comfortable furnishings but all the small touches- well stocked kitchen (yes including good knives), plenty of hooks to hang towels and clothes, unique decor that creates a rustic mountain ambiance, comfy throws, original art, and the list goes on! We were committed to adding these details and amenities to our getaway so that we can provide a level of ultimate comfort. We are confident you will find this to be a one of a kind mountain experience!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin has been decorated with LOVE! It is definitely worth the name it has been given. I know we have to leave but we are not looking forward to it. If I could turn around and take a trip back here next month I would. Everyday we notice something else unique in the cabin. I can't begin to describe the beauty of both the cabin and/or the spectacular view. I looked for months in deciding on the perfect cabin. BINGO, it was well worth the looking on the site almost every day. We will definitely look forward to our next trip here to High Expectations! May you be blessed 10 fold as you have blessed us in every way.

Much Love from

The Black Family

"High Expectations" exceeded our expectations!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin itself is beautiful and the view is AMAZING! The cabin comfortably accommodated two couples and was well appointed with everything we needed. We loved that it was located a bit off the main thoroughfare, yet very convenient to everything. The owner was very easy to work with and seems to truly want her guests to enjoy themselves. All of us highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I took a chance and rented this cabin in Gatlinburg and it was everthing the name claimed to be - high expectations. A wonderful view, comfortable indoor and outdoor seating, beautifully decorated, and equipped with every convenience. I especially enjoyed the local art and crafts displayed in the cabin. We were able to enjoy the small shops that were minutes away, the park entrance that was also minutes away, and the downtown areas that were just a few minutes more away. The only downside was having to leave!

As advertised and better

  • 5 of 5

Ive used vrbo several times in different locations with different results. This cabin really lives up to the advertisement. A very nice cabin with comfortable decor, fantastic scenery and location, plus a nice hot tub, pool table, porches, and vintage arcade system with a lot of games. Very nice audio and video with surround sound in the main room and audio system in the game room with outdoor speakers for the porches. When we return to the area we will look for this cabin. A++

Pretty late for this review but we stayed here last July, the cabin was amazing my family and I had a wonderful time. Very relaxing we were on our way to cades cove and actually had a bear cub run out in front of us and up the mountainside that was pretty awesome to see. We will be coming back again.
