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, 850 377 9130, info@SeaAndSkyRentals.com

Val & I in Seattle on a family vacation.

Val and Renee Morel, 850 377 9130, info@SeaAndSkyRentals.com purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Val and Renee Morel, 850 377 9130, info@SeaAndSkyRentals.com 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.

We really loved this chalet! The views were fantastic! The Morels are so organized and we recieved our security deposit back within 3 days of our return home. We loved the lay out of the house and it held our family of 7 just perfectly. Our only reccomendation would be to replace the charcoal grill with a gas grill! Thanks, guys, for letting us stay in your lovely home!

Well-appointed home, very clean, and the most beautiful views of the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

This home was an A+ for our family. We love being away from the main Gatlinburg strip and enjoying the peace of the mountainside. Some may find the drives up and down the mountain a bit daunting, but we quickly became comfortable with it, and it's worth the effort for the location and amazing views. The house had everything we needed for our week. We prepared all but one meal at the house and had all the necessary utensils and cookware. It was so nice to have a dining table for 8, so all of us could eat together. The beds and furniture were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for our two dogs. We were able to park 4 SUVs in the driveway, and it was an entirely flat surface, which is rare on the mountain.

I will definitely book Mt. Leconte Vista again if my family returns to Gatlinburg. It was perfect for our vacation!

Fabulous cabin, Amazing view, Loved it all!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Val and Renee for such a terrific vacation rental experience! This was our first, but not last, visit to the Great Smoky Mountains. We could not have chosen a better cabin! We loved the view, being able to watch the daytime and nighttime activity at Ober Gatlinburg was fascinating to us. A guest in a previous review thought the lights at Ober were distracting but we foudn that with the blinds closed the bedrooms were quiet dark at night so no one in our group had trouble sleeping. The beds were very comfortable too.

We had no idea there was so much to do and see in Gatlinburg. We thoroughly enjoyed hiking in the park, and walking through downtown Gatlinburg sampling candies and fudge, having a meal (or two!) and enjoying the sights. We cooked in a good bit in the evenings and were so happy to find such a well stocked kitchen! Pots, pans, roasting pan, crockpot, waffle maker, a mixer, plus lots of silverware, plates and glassware, including non-breakable wine glasses which we used at the hot tub. Val and Renee thought of everything to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Other unexpected perks of the cabin were the wood fireplace , the indoor sauna, the extra large dining table that comfortably seated 8 adult guests, and the poker chips and playing cards! Thank you again, we will be back!

Nice....needs updating

  • 4 of 5

Hey there! We had a great time and the cabin was nice. But dear Lord the carpet is gross! It hasn't been replaced since it when in is my guess. With two babies in the house, both sets of parents were not too keen on letting them on it. Ick! I will also say that you can hear just about everything from every room in the house. The walls/floors are thin. That's not a big deal unless you have a young baby...which we did. Still wasn't too big a deal for us because we have babies who sleep through noise (just a heads up for those who have a baby that needs silence). The cabin is in a great location and was easy to get to. The lights from the ski resort are on 24/7 which kind of ruins the views at night. So if you want to see the stars more clearly, pick a different cabin. The bedrooms could really use some curtains for this reason. Even at night the lights are on and clearly come through the room. The kitchen was stocked well with everything you could need....other than a proper bottle opener/wine opener! No biggie, we just bought a cheap one. The cabin was clean enough when we got there. There were a few things that could use a good scrub down...maybe spring cleaning it gets a deep clean? But it was fine with us. All in all, we had a great stay. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to the Smokies and would come back and stay with us again. Mt LeConte Vista cabin offers fabulous views of the ski slopes, plus on a clear night you can see the lovely kaliedoscope of colored lights in downtown Gatlinburg. We are pleased to let you know that the living room carpet is being replaced! We fully agree that it was time to replace the living room carpet. We hope you enjoyed the nicely updated bathrooms, with new granite top vanities, updated lighting and mirrors. We bought the cabin for it's unique location and fabulous views. We've completed one or more updates per year since we purchased the cabin in 2006. Many of our recent guests have enjoyed the brand new, handcrafted king-size log bed and the new 32 inch flat screen TVs in all 4 bedrooms! We invite you to come back and stay with us again soon.
