Bedroom 1 also features a huge bathroom with a large Jacuzzi tub and Walk-in Shower and double sink vanity.

Bedroom 2 on the Second Floor is also a huge, 260 square foot bedroom that sleeps 5 with a king-sized bed and unique bunkbeds that feature a full-sized bed on bottom and a twin-sized bed on top. French doors opening to its own private deck overlooking the Great Smoky Mountain. Bedroom 2 has a huge, 20 foot long bathroom and even larger Jacuzzi spa than Bathroom 1 with Shower attachment.

The other 6 bedrooms are on the first floor. The first floor is wheelchair accessible.


Bedroom 3 is a handicap accessible bedroom on the first floor with a King-Sized bed and opens directly out to the parking area and an incredible view of the Great Smoky Mountains. Most importantly, Bedroom 3 features a fabulous, new, 72 square foot, state-of-the-art, zero entry bathroom and shower tiled on the floor, walls and ceiling. This amazing bath is fully wheelchair accessible featuring a zero barrier linear drain and tiled shower bench.

Bedroom 4 is a larger, newly expanded bedroom with a new queen-sized log bed that shares the large, zero entry bathroom with Bedroom 3.

Bedroom 5 is also a smaller interior children's bedroom with one set of beautiful log bunk beds. Bedroom 5 also features a new, fully tiled, state-of-the-art zero barrier entry shower.

Bedroom 6, another new bedroom, features a striking queen-sized, Cedar bed and also features a large, sliding glass door view of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Bedroom 6 and Bedroom 7 share a newly tiled bathroom with a full-sized shower/tub for bathing children and adults.

Bedroom 8 is a small but beautiful, new bedroom with a full sized log bed and french doors that open out to its own private deck. Bedroom 8 has its own private, fully tiled, zero-bathroom with a full, walk-in shower.

As of March 2016, Spectacular Vista Lodge featured 8 full bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms, most of them new or newly renovated.

Two Sleeper Sofas, one in the Great Room and a second one in the game room on the Third Floor, offer sleeping for an additional 4 people providing accommodations for up to 25 People.

Spectacular Vista Lodge has one Fully Stocked Kitchen capable of preparing a meal for 20 or more. 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.

Spectacular Vista Lodge has Two Large Decks. One Deck offers a Huge Hot Tub for 5 People. The other Deck is set up for Viewing and Quiet Reflection.

The Two Decks are great for viewing the Entire Great Smoky Mountain National Park from Mt Cammerer in the far East to Thunderhead Mountain in the far West with its Famous Third Peak named 'Rocky Top'. In between, you can view the Entire Tennessee Side of The Great Smoky Mountains National Park including the Three Highest Mountains in Tennessee, Clingman's Dome, Mt. Guyot, and Mt. LeConte! Famous Mt. LeConte Dramatically Ascends over One Mile Directly in front of Spectacular Vista Lodge, making it the Tallest Mountain East of the Mississippi River. The View of Mt. LeConte from Spectacular Vista Lodge is truly Breathtaking.

Spectacular Vista Lodge features an incredible Great Room with a soaring 25 foot ceiling. The Great Room features a 60 Inch Flatscreen HDTV and Bluray DVD Player and wood-burning fireplace in an expansive living area. The Dining Area of the Great Room offers two dining room tables that seat 20 at one time, all with Striking Views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The Game Room on the Third Floor features a Regulation Size Pool Table and full-sized Foosball table.

Spectacular Vista Lodge 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. There are only 13 cabins on this section of the mountain spread out over 100+ acres.

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 .4 miles. Spectacular Vista Lodge is the fourth cabin on the right and is much larger than all of the others.

Check-in: There is a lockbox next to the back 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: 1993

About: We have completed a Revolutionary, 4-part business plan. Originally, we built this cabin 22 years ago. 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 Lodge to a condition even better than when it was new. Also, we reengineered the road to meet the highest city standards. Finally, we installed WIFI and 8 Flatscreen TVs in the Lodge, one 65" in size. Second, we removed the trees in front and beside the Lodge 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 the Lodge with VRBO and slashed prices LOWER than in the '90s! As a result, we have booked over 200 nights in the past several months and received 12 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 Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
Spectacular Vista Lodge is located just 1.2 miles mile from Traffic Light #1 in downtown Gatlinburg. Spectacular Vista Lodge has easy ac10cess to Gatlinburg's Fine Dining and Amusements including Ripley's Aquarium and the Space Needle which this Lodge 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. Spectacular Vista Lodge is Located only 38 miles from Harrah's Casino in the Cherokee Reservation in North Carolina.

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 five 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. Remarkably, 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.
