It is exactly as the pictures show. The view is great, even when cloudy, there is no one behind you so you have a peaceful feeling. There is one house next door, and if people are out you will here them but it was never an issue for us. We had 8 of us. 4 of my in-laws the first 4 days then only my family of 4 the last 4 days. My mother-in-law has vision issue and really appreciated her room being on the main floor with access from her room to the porch and her and her husband having their own bath, 7 y/o niece stayed with them on a cot. My husband and I had the top floor room with the Jacuzzi bath, our 10 y/o daughter had the sleeper on the loft, (what an amazing view to wake up to), my husband's brother had the bottom floor with that bedroom and my 14 y/o son had the sleeper until the in-laws left. We loved the pool table, fooseball and air hockey. We brought our own games and loved that the table was so big for us all to play. The little girls LOVED all the space and had a blast playing all over. The beds were very comfortable and the couch and chair in the main room were super comfy and we all loved the big TV's for movie watching. The distance to Pigeon Forge was perfect and we went in for several excursions. I could say more but won't. This is worth coming to again and again.
