WE LOST THIS CABIN IN THE FIRE. IT IS BEING REBUILT. PLEASE RENT 570145 & 576527

WE LOST THIS CABIN IN THE GATLINBURG FIRE NOVEMBER 28, 2016. WE ARE REBUILDING IT. THREE OF OUR CABINS SURVIVED AND WE HAVE REPAIRED AND RENOVATED THOSE THOSE THREE CABINS. THEY ARE MUCH, MUCH NICER THAN THEY EVER WERE AND ALSO MUCH, MUCH NICER THAN THIS CABIN WAS. FOR A ONE BEDROOM CABIN, PLEASE CHECK VRBO LISTING #570145 (SPECTACULAR VISTA CABIN) AND VRBO LISTING #576527 (INCREDIBLE VISTA). FOR OUR 8-BEDROOM LODGE, PLEASE CHECK VRBO LISTING #576529 (SPECTACULAR VISTA LODGE).

PRE-FIRE INFORMATION:

Please Visit all of our $98.00 Spectacular Vista Cabins here at Private Homes, Stoplight #1 in Gatlinburg to check for Special Discounts, Availability and our 100+ 5-Star Reviews. Spectacular Vista (#570145), Alpine Vista (#576525), Amazing Vista (#576526), Incredible Vista (#576527), Absolutely Private Vista (#576528), and our lodge that sleeps up to 18, Spectacular Vista Lodge (#576529).

Absolutely Private Vista is a Honeymoon Log Cabin with Stunning Yiews, a Hot tub on the Deck and a Romantic, Heartshaped Jacuzzi inside, 200+ Satellite Channels on a flatscreen TV, and a Woodburning Fireplace.

Pet Friendly Absolutely Private Vista offers Incredible 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 large Hot Tub with Incredible 180 degree Views of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Living Room features a Stone Woodburning Fireplace with Firewood provided, and a TV with over 200 Channels.

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.

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 Wood burning Fireplace with Free Firewood Provided. If you’re looking for a true Honeymoon Log Cabin in Gatlinburg with Panoramic Mountain Views, you’ll love Absolutely Private Vista.

Absolutely Private Vista is located 5 minutes from Gatlinburg's Fine Dining and Amusements including Ripley's Aquarium. 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 3 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.

Absolutely Private Vista (576528) is located in the middle of 100 acres of virgin forest but is, almost unbelievably, only 4 minutes from traffic light #1 in downtown Gatlinburg and 10 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 just past the 1st cabin on the left (4th cabin on the road). Here the gravel road will become paved and continue up the mountain to the right. Immediately to the left, however, is another gravel road called Mt. Garrison Way (your private road). Turn left on Mt. Garrison Way and drive 2/10 of a mile through the woods to an opening in the forest and the only cabin on the road: Absolutely Private Vista.
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.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1992

About: e have completed a Revolutionary, 4-part business plan. Originally, we built these cabins 23 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 redesigned and 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. So far, 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! Almost all nights are offered between $88-$98! 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. We hope you will catch our vision and join our family of friends who vacation with us over and over.

Why Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
Absolutely Private Vista not only has its own Private Cabin in the middle of 100 acres of virgin forest, it has it's own private road through the private forest to the private cabin. It is the perfect place for a Honeymoon or Getaway. How did this happen? We built a road through the wilderness in 1993 and built two cabins on a ridge at the end of the road. In early 1994, one burned down leaving Absolutely Private Vista alone. Since then, it has become a favorite spot for people to take 'The Road Less Taken' and enjoy a few days of complete isolation. If you want complete privacy and a spectacular view of the Great Smoky Mountains all within 3 minutes of Downtown Gatlinburg, Absolutely Private Vista is the perfect place for you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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. Absolutely Private Vista is only 38 miles from Harrah's Casino in the Cherokee Reservation in North Carolina. Absolutely Private Vista has become an Affordable, Secret Hideaway for Honeymooners, couples, and families.
