LeConte, but is, almost unbelievably, located only 3 minutes from traffic light #1 in downtown Gatlinburg and 9 minutes from traffic light #10 in Pigeon Forge. Spectacular Vista Cabin The Cabin has a 100% Private Deck with a large, 5 person hot tub.

This is a two-story true log cabin with six-inch logs throughout. The spacious, private deck offers a large Hot Tub with Incredible 180 degree Views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Spectacular Vista is located just 1.1 miles from Traffic Light #1 in downtown Gatlinburg. Spectacular Vista has easy access to Gatlinburg's Fine Dining and Amusements including Ripley's Aquarium and the Space Needle which this cabin looks DOWN on. Or, you can take the short, scenic drive along the beautiful Little Pigeon River to the Live Music Theaters, Wholesale Factory Outlets, and Amusements of Pigeon Forge including Dollywood and Splash Country.

And don’t forget, you are within 4 miles of two entrances of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park with its Hiking, Horseback Riding, Rafting, and Historical Tours including the Roaring Fork Nature Trail and Cades Cove.

Go to traffic light #1 in Gatlinburg. Turn (the only way you can turn). Go ¾ of a mile to Kristis Place on the left. (If you see some apartments, you have gone too far.) Turn left and go .3 miles. Spectacular Vista is the first cabin on the right.

Check-in: There is a lockbox next to the door. The key to the cabin is inside the lockbox. Open the lockbox, take out the key, and go in. Check-in is that simple. Please text (865) 253-4626 several hours before your arrival with your cabin name for the most recent lockbox code and cleaning schedule. We are flexible on check-in and check-out times. Usually check-in is at 4pm but you can come in as soon as it is cleaned. Usually check-out is at 10am but we can often arrange a later time.

Pet Fee: Pets are welcome. Please add $48 to the total for the pet fee.

WIFI: We have Verizon Jetpacks for WIFI which can handle up to 10 devices at one time. We ask that you not download movies or videos though as each movie costs us approximately $30 once we go over our monthly limit.

About Edward Bates

We have completed a Revolutionary, 4-part business plan.

Originally, we built these cabins 24 years ago and rented them for $99.00 a night. We quickly developed a loyal clientele who returned year-after-year and sometimes several times a year. We were packed. We then changed to a management company which raised the prices and added extra fees and we lost our loyal clientele from the '90s.

Now, here's our Revolutionary, 4-Part Business Plan.

First, we created a product that is much better than it was in the '90s. We completely restored the cabins to a condition even better than when they were new. Also, we reengineered the road to meet the highest city standards. Finally, we installed WIFI and 2-LED HDTVs in each cabin, one 50' in size.

Second, we removed the trees in front and beside the cabins to create, arguably, the best 180 degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains anywhere.

Third, we decided not to require that the guests put the typical $100.00-$500.00 security deposit, purchase $39.00 insurance policy, or even a submit a credit card number! Everything's on the honor system! That's why the final bill is so low. The honor system is working. Not one item has been stolen or broken!

Finally, we made the most Revolutionary move. We fired our management company, listed our cabins with VRBO and slashed prices LOWER than in the '90s! Most nights are offered at $98.00! As a result, we have booked over 1,000 nights in the past 3 months and received over 80 5-Star Reviews! We are developing a new, loyal clientele that is already rebooking for next year. This allows us to spend less time marketing and more time continuing to improve the property to the highest standards possible.

Our corporate mission is the same as the Apple and Disney Corporations: to offer a great product at a great price and make people happy. Our 40+ 5 Star Reviews and repeat clientele show that its working. Please join our family of friends who vacation with us over and over.

Edward Bates purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Edward Bates chose East

The Great Smoky Mountains are our great love and passion. We believe you will fall in love with them too. The greatest compliment we have received on the property has come from about a dozen guests over the past three years who have asked, 'Is this a part of the National Park?' The boundary between our Property and the National Park is almost indistinguishable. The photos are real and untouched. Our forest appears to be contiguous with the National Park. We truly have one of the best views and one of the best locations in America.

What makes this cabin unique

Spectacular Vista is only 39 miles from Harrah's Casino in the Cherokee Reservation in North Carolina.

Spectacular Vista has become an Affordable, Secret Hideaway for Honeymooners.

Adorable cabin with an amazing view and a quick drive to everything, such a great place!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was our favorite we have stayed in so far, especially for the price and location! The view was breathtaking. The cabin was clean and had adorable decorations in it. We enjoyed having the hot tub and pool table to keep us occupied when we came back for the night. Edward was very quick to respond to any communication. It only took us about 6 minutes to get to the main parkway road in Gatlinburg but we still felt far away. It definitely helped to have 4 wheel drive to get up to the cabin but that has been at any cabin with great views. We would definitely stay here again! We absolutely loved it!

Spectacular Vista

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was very good! Super clean, great decor, peaceful, amazing view, private, close to town (just a short drive especially if you avoid going into town around times when traffic is heavy). We like to get up early, so we didn't have a problem in the morning. In the evening I recommend heading down before the dinner crowd. The quality of the cabin is not reflected by the low rates. It is beautiful! The owners were great. They put a lot into offering not only an affordable, but also a good quality get away for their guests! The only thing that I didn't prefer was the steep, windy, gravel driveway. We have a 4-wheel drive and did okay. The taxi and other guests (they own 2 other cabins on the same hill) also seemed to make it up and down okay, but it is a bumpy ride. All in all it was a great stay and the driveway is a minor flaw in the big picture. The view was worth it!
