As an 8-Bedroom Lodge, we have a 3-Night Minimum for most weekends (Thursday Night through Saturday night or Friday night through Sunday night) unless the Thursday night or Sunday night is already reserved. In that case, the weekend minimum is only 2 nights. If another reservation already includes Friday or Saturday night, the weekend minimum drops to one night. We need to have every Friday and Saturday night reserved plus one other night (Thursday night or Sunday night.) If another group has reserved the Thursday night or Sunday night, We only require that Friday and Saturday be reserved.

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 3 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 third 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 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.
