Our family had the pleasure of staying at Park View in June 2014. The owners of this home have spared no expense in creating a perfect base for a vacation in the Smoky Mountains. Our 4 kids (3 teenagers one 10 year old) loved having their own area and made great use of the billiard table, home theater set up, arcade game and hot tub. The views are truly breathtaking, and during our stay, the weather was perfect for relaxing out on the deck. Wears Valley is a good base for both Pigeon Forge and Gaitlinburg and is a charming place in itself. During our stay, we enjoyed hiking (so many hikes to choose from!), white water rafting (definitely recommend Smoky Mountain Outdoors), exploring Cades Cove (we saw a cub!) and checking out the over the top attractions in PF and Gaitlinburg. There are so many things to do nearby, but Park View in itself is a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. Don and Cindy have been exceptionally thoughtful hosts. You will not be disappointed.
