Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom/ 2 Bathroom With Private Wooded Views

We were so blessed that our cabin and our surrounding area that the cabin is located was untouched by the wildfires.

Higher Expectations is a beautiful cabin located only 10 minutes from downtown Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. We are centrally located directly between these 2 towns.

Our Family enjoys getting away from home and has been visiting our cabins in the mountains for the last 10+ years to relax and unwind. We also love hiking on the many different trails here in the Smokey Mountains. The trails offered waterfalls and incredible views of the mountains.

We believe that you will fully enjoy this cabin. The Theater room is one of the main highlights for families. The property includes two decks to take in the private wooded views as well as the front porch swing to relax and to provide you with a wonderful experience. Our goal is that any guest who stays with us will want to return again.

This cabin is updated on a regular basis. We visit our cabin at least every 3 months to inspect and update as necessary.

Higher Expectations cabin is a great place to enjoy a special weekend or a honeymoon. Also it is perfect for family vacations. There are different seasons here for different experiences including flowers blooming in the spring, summer vacations, the change of leaves in the fall and the winter wonderland views which include skiing.

When you first walk in the cabin, you will view high vaulted ceilings with large picture windows and it is totally all wood inside. The two decks include outdoor furniture, hot tub, and a charcoal grill to enjoy the great outdoors.

We are fully equipped with WiFi , TV's in each bedroom, Living room and Theater room. The game room features a pool table and Foosball table. There is a fully equipped kitchen with all the amenities. The master bedroom features a Jacuzzi tub and King size bed with memory foam. The property also offers a combo washer/dryer unit. The living room features a fireplace with a gas insert, very cozy. This cabin is furnished with towels, washcloths and all lines. We also provide free long distance phone service. Sleeps up to 2-8 people including a king bed, queen bed and 2 sofa sleepers.

There is so much to do in the Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge areas. We have yet to experience all of the many options even after visiting here for over 10 years. You can view all of the many trails that feature awesome water falls and incredible mountain top views. There is also a large Tanger outlet shopping mall, Dollywood, lots of shows and countless restaurants for great food. Activities include zip lining, mountain coaster ride, Ripley's Aquarium, many mini-golf courses, white water rafting, canoeing, fishing, skiing, horseback riding, ATV tours and so much more.

Please read the many great reviews on our cabin to understand other guests experiences at our property. Please call me to discuss or email me for additional information or details on this cabin.

About Stan & Faith Dick

My wife and I originally grew up in Cincinnati, OH. But our family with two kids has lived in the Columbus, OH area for the last 20 years. We love the mountains and decided to buy a cabin back in 2005 as a getaway from the busy life we have to just 'relax'. We enjoy the vacation rental life so much that we decided to purchase two more cabins in the last two years. We enjoy hiking on the many trails that the Smokey Mountains has to offer.

Stan & Faith Dick purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Stan & Faith Dick chose East

This cabin is located right in the middle of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. So, it is a quick trip to either town from the cabin. We fell in love with this cabin mostly because it is located in a private wooded area. The cabin's highlights are the theater room and game room with pool table. There is plenty of living space and the entire cabin features wood floors, ceilings and walls throughout the property. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities.

What makes this cabin unique

Higher Expectations!!! Hot tub on deck!!! The extra large windows!!! Theater Room!!! WiFi wireless network!!! Private Wooded Area!!! Front porch with swing and rocking chairs!!!

Loved Higher Expectations

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 loved our stay at the cabin. It was such a great retreat from the business of Pigeon Forge. My 4 year cried because she didn't want to leave. The cabin was so clean and felt homey. When a rainy day kept us from enjoying the outdoors the cabin kept us busy all day. The game room was great and we watched Sunday football down there. Stan is great and checked in on us. We loved the whole weekend there.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous time in this cabin. Everything was Perfect! We've stayed in cabins before that were nothing like the reviews or pictures. Higher Expectations was just as described and just as beautiful as the pictures. Thank you for allowing us to stay. We will definitely be back and look forward to staying again😊

An Overall Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best cabins we've rented. The description was spot on! Well equipped, nice views, clean, comfortable and just an overall great experience. The owners reached out during our stay to make sure everything was going well and that's a huge plus with us! I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking!

Great Property! Will Visit Again!

  • 5 of 5

I will admit, that driving up to this cabin was a tad scary my first night there; there's lots of one lane roads with very steep inclines. But that's what's expected when you want a cabin in the mountains! But once we arrived the cabin was just perfect! I wouldn't recommend it if you have multiple adults who don't normally share sleeping corners with each other, but for like 2 couples and even a kid or two it's great. The sleeper sofas i wouldn't recommend for adults just due to the fact that it's a sleeper sofa. And one of the bathrooms is only accessible by going upstairs and through someones bedroom. So for two sets of couples it would be ideal. Of course its all doable though! The fireplace is just amazing, plus the hot tub!!! It's about 15 minutes to downtown gatlinburg, 25 minutes from pigeon forge, so the location is great! Plus Stan is very friendly! I would recommend bringing your own beach towels though, the towels provided are more for showers. Highly recommend!!

We had a great time at the cabin.

  • 4 of 5

I would definitely recommend this cabin. Lots of room for everyone to sleep, game room in the lower level and everything you would need in the kitchen. My family had a wonderful time. Fifteen minutes from town.
