INCREDIBLE VIEWS, BORDERS NATIONAL PARK, PERFECT FOR 2 OR UP TO 11

Wears Valley Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Master BR + 2 Game Rooms (one w/c Accessible), 4 baths, sleeps 11/NonSmoking

Above the Clouds is loaded with all the comforts of home including internet. Paved road all the way to the top-plenty of parking. Bring the family and enjoy two separate game rooms.

Truly wheelchair accessible as it was built for it. Feel free to call for details and read guest reviews!

Far enough away from the cities so that at night you can see the constellations and Milky Way overhead from lower 'stargazing deck' or the upper 'sunrise deck.'

Choose from 2 Master Bedrooms each with King bed and entrance to bathroom with Roll-In Shower. Main level BR has a TV, lower level BR has a jacuzzi tub. 3rd Bedroom has bunk beds, TV, Air Hockey & large bathroom. Large Loft has Twin Sleeper Sofa, 7' Billiards table, Darts, full bath & Views. Great Room has gas Fireplace, comfortable seating for 5, Queen Sleeper Sofa. Kitchen is fully stocked with 6 qt. Slow Cooker, Blender, Coffee Maker, etc. Dining table seats 8, breakfast bar seats 4. High Chair and pak-n-play available by request.

This real log cabin was designed to take advantage of the views with multiple decks and lots of glass/picture windows. Much of the furniture is custom built, including the log pool table in the loft level game room with spectacular views. Wheelchair accessible via outdoor ramp to lower level gets you to the air hockey table and lower level bedrooms.

The cabin is decorated in a Smoky Mountain wildlife theme, with lots of bears and raccoons. The centerpiece of the Great Room and loft is a two story wildlife sculpture!

DSL/wireless internet means you can bring your laptop and stay connected -- though you may prefer to sit out on one of 5 decks and feel the peace. This cabin is very private - nothing but views on three sides, and lots of room on the 4th side. The two back decks (facing the spectacular valley/mountain/sunset view) leave you feeling alone and at one with the universe.

The first floor has a full kitchen, great room with gas fireplace, huge picture windows, master bedroom and large bathroom with lots of counter space and roll-in shower. Satellite HDTVs in the great room, game room, rec room and 1st floor master bedroom. The back deck has rockers, swing and a hot tub.

The lower level has another master suite. This bedroom has a Jacuzzi tub in addition to the walk-in shower in private bath. It is wheelchair accessible by ramp from the outside. The 'third' bedroom is a combination recreation room with an air hockey table and TV with Wii. The beds here are a full over queen log bunk bed. There is a 2nd bathroom on this level - large with a bathtub/shower.

The cabin has a small yard and playground. There is an animal path beyond the playground that leads to the very top of Cove Mountain, about a mile up. The elevation at Above the Clouds is approximately 2400 feet, but no worries: this cabin is not a cliff hanger.

There is a boardwalk that takes you over to the swimming pool that is shared by only 8 cabins. The boardwalk itself is another great viewing spot of the valley and mountains!

Just six miles away is the Wears Valley entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Take this scenic drive to get to Gatlinburg or Cades Cove. Pigeon Forge is also easy to drive to with all of its shopping, restaurants and entertainment, but you may find that you want to spend some days and evenings at home, since there will be plenty to do right here. Wears Valley is known as 'the peaceful side of the Smokies.' Come be our guest and restore your soul.

Connie & Paul Hartke own several vacation rental properties. Connie manages our two cabins in the Smoky Mountains and runs our online real estate school. Paul co-owns a very busy real estate company in Northern Virginia and is our school instructor. We reside on Lake Audubon in Reston, VA with our 6 pound Burmese cat.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

The Views. Come see and you will understand.

We fell in love with the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and bought our first cabin, Eagles View, in 2005. Above the Clouds was purchased in 2006. We love the friendly people in the area and hiking in the park. Both cabins were destroyed in a fire in March 2007, so we rebuilt and were renting again by Thanksgiving.

We visit several times a year to hike to a new waterfall and keep our cabins in A+ shape.

'Above the Clouds' has a unique central beam with wildlife carvings by a local artist. The cabin is truly wheelchair accessible, including the lower level game room!

Located 1/2 hour or less from Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge (10 miles), Sevierville and Townsend. Less than a 10 minute drive to the Smoky Mountain Park. 'Above the Clouds' is a deluxe cabin with the best views in the entire area. It borders the Great Smoky Mountains and overlooks Wears Valley with one of the most scenic, panoramic views in the Smokies. A previous guest said 'everyone should see this view at least once in their lifetime.' This rental is pet friendly and handicap accessible with a mountain boardwalk along the ridge over toward private community swimming pool.

This cabin was perfect for our family. It's nice to have something available that's truly handicap accessible. My Father In Law has limited mobility and this was the first time he has been able to take a weeklong vacation since he had a stroke about 16 years ago. He is only comfortable moving around at home, and this cabin made him feel at home. For the rest of the family, the cabin is far enough off the beaten path that you feel like you're totally away from touristy areas, but close enough to drive to many of the attractions in about 15 minutes. The cabin is clearly well cared for and very clean. Communication with the owners was awesome. I knew what they expected of me, and they were always available and quick to respond to any questions I had. I would recommend this to a friend any day.

My family stayed at this cabin to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. The cabin has an awesome view with comfortale rocking chairs. My children (7yrs. & 5 yrs.) LOVED the playground. The cabin was clean and Connie was very easy to work with. She even left a birthday card for my husband! You can tell the owners care about their cabin and it is not just one in a big group. I would highly recommend this cabin!

Owner's Response: Our guests really did write this, not me (Connie Hartke). We love hearing that you enjoyed the cabin and views and playground so much. I'll be there next month with my grandchildren (2, 4 & 12 with another 13 year old friend) and we can't wait!! The 12 year old has been going there since he was 5 and he is looking forward to showing his friend the mountain.

Even though we only got to stay one night we were very impressed by this beautiful cabin. Very clean!! Very comfortable!! Beautifully decorated and amazing view. We were looking for a quiet weekend and didn't want to be in the craziness of Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. This place was perfect. Loved the location. We will be back with our family. Thanks Connie for a great stay.

Just now getting around to posting about our visit August 4th - 11th of this year (2012). This was out 5th time to the cabin and as always, it was a wonderful stay. My family and I love this cabin!
It did manage to rain every day we were there this year, but we still enjoyed our stay. We were able to get out a little in between the showers with our granddaughter and her friend that went with us. And there was a couple of late afternoons they were able to go to the pool. As always we had a great vacation at the cabin, and we never get tired of the view. It is always so beautiful.
But I have to say that the highlight of this trip was the opportunity to get to meet Ms Connie and Mr Paul (owners) in person. They are great people and Jack and I did so enjoy spending that short evening with them. It was great to meet them!
This is a wonderful cabin and lots of things close around to do, if that is what you want. Jack and I just enjoy the cabin and sitting in the swing looking at the view. We do so love our visits to "Above the Clouds" cabin, and we will be back in the fall next year if at all possible.

Ridgetop cabin with panoramic views of Wears Valley and the Smoky Mountains to the south and west, toward Gatlinburg, Smokies, and Pigeon Forge to the north and east. Close enough to everything, yet semi-secluded and peaceful. 20 minute drive to Pigeon Forge, 27 mins. to Dollywood. 5 mins. to GSMNP entrance. If you want to visit Cades Cove early in the morning -- this is a great starting point. Beautiful drive through the Park -- cabin is located half way between Cades Cove and Gatlinburg.

Explore Townsend - the Quiet Side of the Smokies. Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center has free areas & minimal admission -- very interesting! Caves, bike riding & good restaurants in and near Townsend also.

There are only 8 cabins on this dead end road -- this is not one of those cookie cutter resorts! 3 cabins are owned by my family -- great for a reunion - ask about renting multiple cabins!

Summertime - Private swimming pool is shared by only 8 cabins.
