About the property

Custom Cabin built in 2017 w/ Two King Master Suites, Hot Tub, Grill Area, Wi-Fi

Visit our other 5 star cabins at VRBO #465185 and # 565285!

Newly built in 2017, this amazing mountain retreat is a perfect mountain getaway! Enjoy your honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or a relaxing family getaway! Suitable for children ages 8 and older.

Ideal Location -

The Good Life is located between downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Less than a 10 minute drive to either, this is an ideal location if you plan on visiting the park, hiking, checking out the local restaurants or walking down the Gatlinburg strip.

Newly Built in 2017!

Custom designed, this luxury cabin offers cathedral ceilings, large 6 foot picture windows to maximize the amazing views, hickory hardwood throughout, a spacious kitchen with oak cabinets, granite and a stone fireplace.

Two Master Suites -

Perfect for single couples, double couples or small families, The Good Life was built with two private, closed room king suites, one upstairs and one downstairs. Both master bedrooms offer private full bathrooms and beautiful Ski mountain views along with custom made cedar furniture, a king gel/memory mattress, LG smart HDTV, a cabinet dresser and a closet.

The Deck -

The large covered deck faces Mt Le Conte and offers spectacular views. Sit back in the Adirondack rockers or soak in the new Viking Spa. This is one of the best seats in the house!

Entertainment amenities include:

**NEW...unlimited high speed "indoor/outdoor" Wi-Fi** (2G for outside devices & 5G for high speed inside use) The living room offers a 55 in LG smart HDTV with an expanded Charter package and includes sports and movie channels.

Our mattress selection -

Mattress selection was one of the top priorities when rebuilding our cabin. Many guests have said they appreciate the luxury our mattress selection has to offer and we found a truly amazing mattress by M-Lily. Unlike most mattress materials, the M-Lily is free from mercury, lead, formaldehyde and chlorine, considered toxic. The M-Lily is made with naturally occurring materials like aloe, bamboo, silk and plant oils (like castor seeds). Safe & comfortable, you will rest easy on this dream mattress!

Custom Outdoor Area!

The cabin would not be complete without our one-of-a-kind grill & picnic area. Follow the sculpted rock walk way down to the grill area which includes a picnic table with umbrella, park style charcoal grill and a couple's Adirondack swing, all with a beautiful mountain view. One flip of a switch will illuminate the grill area with evening LED lights. Come enjoy this truly unique experience!

Suitable for children ages 8 years and older.

The Good Life is a non smoking and non pet/animal property.

"The Good Life" cabin was perfect for my family of 4. The cabin was spotless and decorated beautifully. The views from the deck over look Mt. LeConte and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a day of hiking. The cabin provided nice linens/towels, and a start up supply of dish soap, hand soap, & dish tabs, paper towel and toilet paper. We never had to go to the store for any of those items. The kitchen was stocked with pots/ pans etc. The Wifi was incredibly fast which made uploading all my vacation pictures a breeze! We signed up for a "food city" card on line and was able to save a lot of money on groceries. Food city is the closest grocery store. We quickly learned to avoid the national park crowds by hiking early am (on the trail by 8 am) Mike & Angela were very organized and easy to work with. We look forward to our next visit!

It's everything that it's described to be....awesome new cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect size for 4 people...with 2 master suites on separate levels. The kitchen left nothing to be desired......offered everything that we needed,and, alot more than most vrbo homes. It was super clean,comfortable beds,awesome views with privacy for the enjoyable Hot Tub on deck. The owners even provided games,cards,movies (with 3 TVs) and many extras that you usually don't find in a rental. We grilled hamburgers on the grill....and,had wild turkeys serenading us while cooking outside. It was great! Plus,it's super convenient to downtown too....just minutes away. We couldn't have asked for anything was an awesome stay at "The Good LIfe".

Best cabin in Gatlinburg

  • 5 of 5

Are you like me researching 100s of cabins, their proximity to events, cost, and views? Let me stop you here, this is the best deal you can get.

Proximity: You’re only 1/2 mile from the main pkwy. Turn left, you will be in pigeon forge in 5 minutes. Turn right, you’ll be in Gatlinburg in 5 minutes. Sugarlands smoky mountain entrance down the street.

Cabin: When you see resort cabins, the pictures will NEVER be what it really looks like. The pictures here are ACCURATE. The cabin is immaculate, brand new with a beautiful wood smell. There are 2 cabins near you, but you’re in front and your hot tub deck/bedroom windows are private. The sofa inside is comfy with reclining seats. High vaulted ceilings. We stayed in the room on the main level b/c of easy access and high ceilings as opposed to upstairs. If you’re a water pressure snob like me, you’ll love the shower pressure AND hot water. The hot tub was the Clean and relaxing with awesome views.

Views: AMAZING. The tops of the mountains were capped with snow. We left the bedroom curtains open to wake up to unobstructed views on the side and back of the cabin.

Amenities: BOX FANS. I travel everywhere with mine and they had TWO. Loved the Keurig (bring your fav cups), full size mirror, Netflix/DVDs provided plus regular channels, TVs in every room, closet space w/ hangers, EVERY COOKING item ever needed and I’m a huge cook. Games. First aid kit. Lots of blankets and pillows.

Suggested activities: Eat at/visit Old Mill. Bluff Point ATV rides. The Island at Pigeon Forge (moonshine distillery with tastings). Alcatraz Crime Museum. Mountain coasters!

Pro Tips: Bring nice TP like Charmin if you’re a tp snob, toiletries (shampoo, soap), and movies or games. I suggest bringing extra towels as we were only 2 people and the towels for the hot tub were small, I like giant towels. Bring slippers for hardwood floors, use coupons provided. If you come during cold weather, bring ski pants and thick gloves if you plan to Zipline or ATV. I have a bad back and need a stiff mattress and pillow so if you’re like me, bring a pillow you’re comfortable with.

The most important part of booking in a place you are unfamiliar is being able to speak with the owners. At a resort, you will not get the kind of service we did being able to text or call Mike and Angela who care very much about your stay. Whether it was to ask where to go or what to eat, they were there to assist. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Owner's Response: You definitely win the award for the most thorough review in our history! And we appreciate your feedback on The Good Life. Some readers may not know the original Good Life was lost in the fires, so we had the opportunity to literally have a hand in every detail of building the new cabin (along with our other cabin Take Me Away). It's been a hit so far with everyone and I'm very happy you had a wonderful visit. Take care and we look forward to next time! Angela & Mike
