About Brian & Gigi Abston

Brian & Gigi live in Mt Juliet, TN and purchased this cabin as a family retreat. We come & enjoy the cabin one weekend or so a month and love to share this beautiful get-away with you so you to can relax and make some great family memories. We think you will love it as much as we do.

Brian & Gigi Abston purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Brian & Gigi Abston chose Gatlinburg

LOCATION-LOCATION-LOCATION! There are many cabins but to find the perfect one with the perfect VIEW is key. Right in the heart of Gatlinburg where it only takes 5 minutes to downtown Gatlinburg or 5 minutes up to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort. And the mountain views from the cabin are awe inspiring.

What makes this cabin unique

From the decks to the living room and loft you have gorgeous views abound.

The cabin was beautiful, very clean and cozy. Everything we needed was there.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the view, it was spectacular. All of our needs were provided. We did wish that there was some fire wood provided, it would have made a nice addition. Also, we had a baby( 18 mos) and it would have been nice to know that the stairs were very steep to each floor and there was really no way to keep him safe except to hold him the whole time. We did end up blocking him in the living room area with the couches some. Also, the excellent view came with a price, as the hill to the cabin was very formidable, but maybe if you were used to that sort of thing it wouldn't have been such a big deal. We are from Florida, to us it was so scary. But we really did enjoy the cabin, a wonderful mountain experience, it even snowed 5 inches.

We stayed in this lovely cabin for Christmas 2016. It was very clean and the kitchen was nicely stocked with silverware, dishes, pots, and pans which really helped with our Christmas cooking. The beds were very comfortable and we loved that each was on a different level with access to a bathroom so we all got great privacy. The view was incredible and we LOVED the tram going by. Made my 2 year old very happy. Hot tub was great too. The towels were a bit scratchy so you may want to bring some and also bring your toilet paper as we did. Overall a wonderful experience and the seller was phenomenal at getting back to me quickly with any questions. So glad we could bring out money to this area for the holiday and support after the wildfires. I would recommend this place to anyone!

We had a great time at Smokey's View cabin. Everything was provided for us and our trip was very smooth. Really appreciated that we didn't have too many clean up requirements to fulfill before leaving. Everything was great!

Mystical Smokey's View - 12/17 - 12/22/16

  • 5 of 5

I literally viewed hundreds of cabins, but kept coming back to this particular one as it seemed to meet all the criteria of what we were searching for. It did not disappoint. Brian and Gigi Abston were extremely accommodating, informative, and welcoming from the moment we booked our stay. Even through the crisis of the wildfire and not knowing if the cabin survived, they kept me informed. When we arrived at the cabin it was EXACTLY as pictured, but a thousand times better (if that is possible)!! It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had plenty of bears, bears, bears! We are Cajuns from South Louisiana and this was our first time ever going to Tennessee. It was magnificent, and simply mystical and I look forward to many, many more vacations in Gatlinburg staying at Smokey's View. There truly is not one single thing I would change about the cabin. And yes, the view WILL take your breath away. Thank you for allowing me to create wonderful, lasting memories at your cabin.

Cozy Mountain-top Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday at Amazing Smokey's View! The cabin definitely lived up to its name! My favorite part of our trip was sitting on the deck with my morning coffee, looking out at the beautiful view. Everything was clean and in good working order. We left just before the fires started. I pray that this cabin was spared.

Owner's Response: Thank you for spending Thanksgiving at our cabin. We are happy to report that many prayers have been answered and our cabin was spared! It did not hit that side of the mountain and you can't even tell anything happened.

Beautiful cabin with an excellent view of Gatlinburg and the smokies! We even had a visit from a black bear! Great place to stay. Can't wait to come back. We would definitely recommend this cabin for others to enjoy. Plenty of room for our family of eight.
