About Blaise and Dina Miller, Owners

We are the Miller's (from left, Dina, Bryce [19], Brent [16], and me (Blaise). This picture is from August, 2017 when we went on vacation to the Low Country near Beaufort inf South Carolina. We rented a small cottage with a dock on a saltwater estuary (have gone there many times). In front of us is our "Low Country Boil" which was crabs we had just caught, shrimp, potatoes, sausage, and corn. What a feast and great family memories, this was our last vacation before Bryce started at UGA.

We originally fell in love with Bella Vista Lodge becuase of it's fantastic views of Mount LeConte and the massive wall of windows in which to 'take it all in'. Over the past year, we have renovated EVERYTHING in the lodge; installing new hardwood floors, antler chandeliers, carpet, furniture, appliances, lighting, cabinetry...and...and...and...

It was a lot of work, but the end results is a fantastic, top-of-the-line, mountain lodge that your family and friends will love to come home to and won't ever want to leave!!

We hope you love Bella Vista Lodge as much as we do.

Blaise and Dina Miller, Owners purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Blaise and Dina Miller, Owners chose East

Our search for this cabin crossed several states and a year and a half. We found lots of beautiful locations in other areas but to quote our youngest son 'It's so BORING...there is nothing to do but look at the view!'

We hated to admit it but he was right...Where could there be a place that had the serenity, and views that the adults desired, while having enough 'fun' to hook the kids??? The answer was Gatlinburg, TN!!

We found some of the best mountain views in the South in this area. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have lots to do for our boys, from hiking, to white water rafting, to fine dining and live shows, to horseback riding and Go-Karts. We now that this area will entertain EVERYONE in our family for years to come...

What makes this cabin unique

We looked low and high, but could not find a place that 'wowed' us. When we found 'Bella Vista', there was no mistaking we had found what we were searching for!

Bella Vista Lodge combines a fantastic mountain view but unintimidating roads to get there. A real rarity in these parts!

It also provides plenty of indoor and outdoor space to accomodate large groups while still keeping a cozy and intimate feel.

The Lodge is in the Arts & Crafts District, which is a quaint area with lots of small family-run artisian shops - you don't even have to buy, just go in and talk with the kind folks - they are very friendly people.

We take pride in knowing that other families can create wonderful memories to last a lifetime while staying at Bella Vista.

Please know we will do everything possible to make sure you have a great vacation in the Smokies!

Nice home; beautiful views, a few issues

  • 3 of 5

We had a group of 14 people and there was plenty of room for all of us. The view was gorgeous and the beds were huge and extremely comfortable. We had 5 kids ages 5 thru 10 and they made the most out of the downstairs area. The guys also made good use of the pool table.

Having said all of that there were some disappointments. We had issues with the A/C which was reported on Sunday and was not rectified until Wednesday. Once the repairman came out, we were good to go, though. The wi-fi was basically non-existent and we used all of our data by the time the week was out. I realize, we're in the mountains and it can be an issue but I guess we just expected to be able to have access. The only other issue was the dryer. It took several hours to dry a load of towels. Apparently that has been an issue but we were told to be patient.

All in all these are not deal breakers and I'm sure will be addressed but I would have liked to have been made aware of them.

To end on a positive note, we forgot a pillow and I texted the housekeeper and she responded immediately that she would ship it. That was greatly appreciated.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the issues, I was in communication with this guest all during the week they were there regarding questions and such. It was an extremely humid week and on Tuesday, the guest reported that while he had set both thermostats to 71 degrees, it was 74 in the house. One of the units had froze up. I had the HVAC company out there Wednesday (the next day) to fix it. Just installed a new Verizon-based WiFi (8/27/2017) which is much faster than our old satellite-based WiFi, so this issue has been resolved. An all new dryer vent was installed on 8/30/2017, so now cloths are drying quickly and this issue has been resolved.

Owner's Response: We ditched our slow satellite-based WiFi on 8/27/2017 and now have fast Verizon based Wifi, so slow WiFi is no longer an issue.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say our experience was amazing. The cabin was absolutely inviting, comfortable and very cozy. We had a party of 3 different families and everyone had their space...plus the downstairs play room was perfect for the kids (we had 2 teenagers and 2 other children ages 5-7) and they loved it! The kitchen was perfect and very well stocked. We enjoyed our family dinners and even had a bbq while we were there for superbowl sunday... the views of the mountain from our bedroom windows at first light is beyond words! Absolutely breathtaking!

Very convenient to Gatlinburg and to the stores (plus they have a handy binder with all the local stores) whatever issue we had, was taken care of in a very timely manner so we could enjoy the beauty of this place ......

Definitely keeping it in mind for future family trips!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family. So convenient to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville! Everything was so nice and clean. Beautiful retreat in the mountains. The pool table and hot tub were so much fun. We had 3 families and everyone had their own floor. You could easily do 4 families. There is wifi but the connection is not great, so plan to relax and disconnect. We can't wait to book our next visit. Will plan to stay here again.
