HOW DID 'MT LeCONTE VISTA' GET IT'S NAME?
'Mt LeConte Vista' is named for the cabin's great views of famous Mount LeConte, the 3rd highest peak in the National Park at 6,593 ft. above sea level. In addition to views of famous Mount LeConte, the cabin offers views of Downtown Gatlinburg and fantastic views of Ober Gatlinburg ski area. The night view of Downtown is very pretty! You'll enjoy sitting out on the main level deck at night to star gaze and see the twinkling lights of Downtown.
The direct views of Ober Gatlinburg ski resort/amusement park are a very special feature of 'Mt LeConte Vista'. From both decks and nearly every room in the cabin you will have closeup, direct views of Ober Gatlinburg. It's truly a unique experience to see the ski area from above. We enjoy watching the activity at Ober Gatlinburg in ALL four seasons and we hope you will too!

About Val and Renee Morel
Val & I in Seattle on a family vacation.
Val and Renee Morel purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Val and Renee Morel chose Gatlinburg
Why did we buy vacation homes in Gatlinburg Tennessee? We both love the mountains. In fact, we got married in Gatlinburg at Chapel in the Glen: chapelwedding dot com. Gatlinburg is beautiful in all 4 seasons. We just love vacationing here! We were delighted by the cabin's contemporary design that is complimented by the warm wood ceilings and flooring, the unique features such as the stained glass windows and the free standing cast iron wood burning fireplace, private indoor sauna and the semi-enclosed sunken hot tub.
What makes this Cabin unique
While shopping for our 1st Gatlinburg vacation home, we fell in love with the character of the cabin and the gorgeous, unique views. The cabin is a delightful combination of contemporary design & rustic elegance. Our guests enjoy upscale furnishings and amenities, plus welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. The views were unlike any other we had seen while vacationing in the Smokies. The views include a direct view of Ober Gatlinburg ski and amusement area, panoramic mountain views, lovely & ever changing views of Mount LeConte, and night time view of the twinkling lights of downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin is family friendly and pet friendly. Other special features of the cabin include: large picture windows and views from every room, unique wood burning fireplace, glasstop octagon shaped dining table, semi-enclosed deck with sunken hot tub, indoor sauna, cable channels, free long distance calls, Wi-Fi, showers with dual shower heads, and spacious flat parking pad. 'Mt LeConte Vista' sleeps up to 8 guests with 3 king size beds and 1 queen size bed.

The Great Smoky Mountains are awesome!
The views of the mountains are incredible!
Great views, great value
Pros: Awesome views from the bedrooms and porches, the pictures are all pretty accurate. There is a waterpark thing nearby, but not close enough to ruin the skyline or to be noisy (some reviews complain about it which is the only reason I’m even mentioning it here) We’ve stayed at a few cabins in the area and think that the hot tub setup is the best of anywhere we’ve stayed. The price is very low, so we were expecting bugs or general dirtiness but that couldn’t have been further from the truth. Everything felt clean when we got there and we had enough amenities to last the weekend. We had 3 dogs and 8 people and it never felt cramped. The dogs also had a pretty close patch of level grass so we could take them out fairly easily. Also there was a level parking lot that held 3 cars which is not something you get at most cabins in the area and was very nice.
Cons: if you are looking for a large/ wrap around deck with a lot of seating you will have to look elsewhere. The deck is large enough to hold 8 people pretty comfortably, but is not covered and the outter edge shakes a little bit when walked on (it held me so it’s secure, but it’s a little spooky). It’s not covered, so if it rains you will need to go to the lower level porch (hot tub level).
Overall: the only thing keeping this cabin from being absolutely perfect is the deck, but it’s a small thing to give up for the price and rest of the experience you get. Definitely worth staying here if you are coming to the area.
Too many steps
The chalet is nice; however it was unclear in the description of how many flights of stairs to climb so if you have a problem with going up & down stairs, don’t rent this place.
We didn’t have service for our phones & the water in hot tub was dirty & doesn’t get hot, just reached 80 deg. We enjoyed visiting with family & the view is fantastic.
We are glad the guest appreciated the great and unique views at the cabin and that she thought the cabin was very nice.
Once I read the review and saw it was only 3-stars, I knew I had to reach out to the guest to find out why she didn't contact us about the hot tub only getting to 80 degrees. I knew she hadn't called us to report any issues during her stay, so I wanted to get the details and get the hot tub checked out asap. It was her husband that used the hot tub and said the temperature was in the 90's not the 80's. We had a late Spring cold snap with outside temps ion the 30's during this stay. We've had the hot tub checked following this guest stay and it had no trouble reaching the proper temperature. Our repair company suggested the that guests might have left the hot tub cover off, which could have caused the water to be in the 90's. We encourage our guests to contact us if they experience any cleaning issues at check in or if they have a maintenance issue at any time during their stay. Regarding the stairs: Mt LeConte Vista is a 3 level cabin and it does not have an elevator so there are flights of interior stairs to access each level. There are no exterior stairs and our parking pad is completely flat and level. The guest asked us about this thru email 2 weeks before check in so she was aware of the stairs and said she knew that the cabin had 3 levels, as many of the cabins in this area do. We have other cabins with fewer stays that are much better choices for anyone with mobility issues. If you are considering a stay at the cabin, please feel free to contact us about the layout and interior stairs.
Great house and location!! Perfect for our family trip!
Great location, amazing view!
Overall we had a great time!! The cabin was nice and the view was incredible. There were a few issues with the electrical outlets and things not staying plugging in. The cords would fall halfway out and you’d have to keep plugging it back in. Not a big deal though. The enclosed hot tub area was awesome and was perfect for our family!! Overall we had an amazing experience.
Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. We are sorry to hear about the plugs and things not staying plugged in. This gives us an opportunity to fix it. Thank you for letting us know. We hope that you will come back and stay with us and take advantage of the 10% repeat discount for your next stay. Please contact us directly when you ready to book with us again!
Loved it! This is our 4th year at this wonderful house, BEST view in Gatlinburg, even if it was shrouded in clouds for much of this rainy weekend! Great place to stay in your jammies, curl up with blankets, and be together! The only thing i would ever say to update is maybe to a tankless water heater in the future....hot water gives out pretty quick with 5 people taking showers. Everything by & large is spectacular at this cabin : ) !
We are so happy that you continue to be repeat guests at Mt Leconte Vista! We hope you continue to come back. Thank you for the awesome review and make sure to contact us directly for your future stay and receive your repeat guest discount.
