Please text (865) 206-4680 for more information. Please Visit both of our $108.00 Spectacular Vista Cabins here at Private Homes, Stoplight #1 in Gatlinburg to check for Special Discounts, Availability and our many Five-Star Reviews!!! Spectacular Vista (#570145), Incredible Vista (#576527), and our lodge that sleeps up to 25, Spectacular Vista Lodge (#576529).

Pet friendly Incredible Vista (formerly 'Joshua Cove' & 'Azalea Cove') offers Breathtaking Views of the Great Smoky Mountains only 3 minutes from Downtown Gatlinburg.

This is a two-story true log cabin with six-inch logs throughout. The spacious, private deck offers a 2-Person Hot Tub with Incredible 180 degree Views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The Living Room features a Stone Woodburning Fireplace with Firewood provided, a new leather sleeper-sofa and a 55 inch LED Flatscreen HDTV with over 200 Channels and a Bluray DVD Player.

You can prepare Romantic Candlelight Dinners in your Fully Furnished Kitchen with steaks grilled on the Park Grill a few feet away. The Kitchen appliances include a Stovetop Oven, Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Microwave, Coffee Maker, Toaster, Blender and Waffle Iron. The Kitchen is fully furnished with Utensils and Cookware.

The expansive second-floor features an Open Loft Bedroom with a Full King-Sized Bed under a Vaulted Cathedral Ceiling. Wake in the morning to Incredible Views of the Great Smoky Mountains through your Four Cathedral Windows.

After dinner, enjoy a game on the full-sized pool table or choose a show from the Flat Screen TV with over 200 Satellite Channels. The Cozy Living Room features a Romantic, Stone Woodburning Fireplace with Free Firewood Provided. If you’re looking for a true Honeymoon Log Cabin in Gatlinburg with Panoramic Mountain Views, you’ll love Incredible Vista.

Incredible Vista is located 5 minutes from 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.

Within 4 miles of three entrances to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park with its Hiking, Horseback Riding, Rafting, and Historical Tours including the Roaring Fork Nature Trail and Cades Cove.

Incredible Vista (576527) has one of the best views of any of our one bedroom cabins. From the deck of Incredible Vista, you can see the entire Tennessee side of the Great Smoky National Park. The deck has a 2-Person Hot Tub and is 100% private due to a privacy wall. The deck has a two person hot tub.

Incredible Vista is located in the middle of 100 acres of virgin forest but is, almost unbelievably, only 3 minutes from traffic light #1 in downtown Gatlinburg and 9 minutes from traffic light #10 in Pigeon Forge.

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 get to an apartment complex, you have gone too far.) Turn left and go 1/3 of a mile.

Incredible Vista is the second 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.

Cancellation Policy: If you have to cancel, please give us as much notice as possible. We will return all of the deposit for all of the nights that we can rebook.

Reservations: To make a reservation, please send a request via email to the manager requesting the specific cabin and dates and wait for a responding email confirming the reservation. SENDING THE DEPOSIT DOES NOT MAKE THE RESERVATION. We make the reservation for the party who EMAILS us first requesting the reservation, not the one which sends the deposit first. Thank you.

Deposit: If you make a reservation, we ask people to send 50% of the total (or more if you wish) as a deposit. You can pay by check or credit or debit card if you have a PayPal account.

About Edward Bates

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

Originally, we built these cabins 22 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.

Why Edward Bates chose Gatlinburg

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 not retouched. 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

Incredible Vista is only 38.2 miles from Harrah's Casino in the Cherokee Reservation in North Carolina.

Truly Incredible Vistas!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing cabin with spectacular views. It was clean and well maintained. Ed went above and beyond to accommodate us. We would highly recommend this cabin for the views, the peace and tranquility. The highlight was seeing a family of 5 black bears meandering through the brush below the deck. A sight we'll never forget. Our thanks to Ed for a wonderful experience and hope to return in the near future.

Owner's Response: We have had so many wonderful guests over the past three and a half years with VRBO but Debbie Gann may have been the best!!! On a day when all of our cabins turned over (one party checking out, another checking in) including our 8 bedroom Lodge, and we did not have enough cleaners to get all of the cabins cleaned by 4pm, DEBBIE GANN ACCUALLY CLEANED HER OWN CABIN AND SAVED THE DAY!!! When rating her as a guest, we gave her a 5-STAR REVIEW BECAUSE WE COULD NOT GIVE HER A 10-STAR REVIEW!!! Also, unfortunately, we could not leave comments on her actions in our review of her so we had to document her extremely kind act here. If you are a homeowner on VRBO and DAN & DEBBIE GANN ask to stay at your property, ACCEPT IMMEDIATELY!!! THEY WILL BE THE BEST GUESTS YOU HAVE EVER HAD!!! THANK YOU AGAIN DEBBIE!!!

Made our wedding week wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful! The drive to it was a little rough, but definitely worth it for the view. It is located in the perfect spot close to Gatlinburg and only a short drive away from Pigeon Forge. The owner was very responsive and great at communicating when needed. We are very happy with our stay and would recommend it to anyone!
