About Bob Howard

Hello,

We are the Howards, welcome to our cabin Wa-Ta-Vu. We purchased it in July 2007. We have remodeled every room and have decorated it with pictures from local Gatlinburg artists. There are many old pictures of Gatlinburg taken in the 50's. We are constantly working on more changes to the cabin. We are do-it-yourself types and enjoy working on it. Thanks for visiting!! Bob & Carol, pictured with their daughter Sarah, son-in-law Joe, granddaughter Caroline, and their dogs, Zoe and Eleanor.

Why Bob Howard chose Gatlinburg

We hope to retire in a couple of years and will be spending much more time at the cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

The main things we enjoy at the cabin is the peace and solitude. The view is spectacular of Mount Leconte. In the winter with binoculars you can see the lodge on Mount Leconte. We also enjoy sitting in the hottub and just looking at the mountains.

wonderful time and place

  • 5 of 5
we rode our motorcycles up and had a wonderful time and the cabin was an excellent place to come back to after beautiful rides through the national forest and around the area. Very nicely outfitted and has a gorgeous view from the hot tub and deck. And yes we got to see Mr. Bear at the end of the road.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
The Howard's were exceptional at communicating with us. The cabin was spacious, clean, cozy and VERY well stocked. The long private driveway made us feel secluded even though there were four more cabins on the entry road. Gave kids place to ride scooters. Price was right too!!! We had four adults and two small kids so the futon was used as extra bed. We had first three days of rain, but still did some hikes, walked under Grotto Falls, did a Jr Ranger Program, went to Tuckaleecher Caverns, and rode horses in a rain
storm!!!!! We thought Gatlinburg itself was too much of a tourist trap but did enjoy a few things there with the kids. Cherokee Grill was an excellent choice for our last meal. Playing in Greenbriar river and a picnic there was fun. And a day tubing in Townsend was fun
Bear stories: while on cabin driveway watching a bear at the bottom of driveway, another bear stepped off the mountain into driveway very near us. Another night we watched a huge bear scouting around all five cabins on Octagon Drive. Unfortunately we didn't get good pix. Thanks Bob snd Carol for sharing your cabin

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent 5 nights here with our 3 kids ages 17, 10, & 7. The cabin is a perfect place to come back to at night after a long day of taking in the activities of the area. The gas grill was perfect and allowed us to eat in each night. The hot tub soothed our aching muscles after long days on our feet. It was great to have a washer/dryer which allowed us to pack a little more lightly. We took advantage of the shared pool a couple of evenings as well. Much to our surprise, we didn't have to share the pool with other guests. While we did not see the neighborhood bear, my husband and I did see a fox while returning our first evening from getting groceries for the week. A great retreat. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Bob and Carol!

Words can't do it justice

Words can't do it justice
  • 5 of 5
Everything about this cabin was great! The name of the cabin is perfect since as we stepped on the deck for the first time my boyfriend and I both muttered the words "what a view". We opened the door for the first time and couldn't believe how nice the inside of the cabin was. Not only was everything we could possibly need provided but the cabin was spotless (not just clean, literally spotless). The location of the cabin was ideal for us, being just out of town in peace an quiet. Bob was wonderful to deal with even providing us with a welcome phone call to make sure we made it o.k. If you are looking to rent a cabin in Gatlinburg...look no further.

Nicer than in pictures

  • 5 of 5
My daughters and I recently stayed at Wa-Ta-Vu cabin for a few nights. The pictures on this site do not do the cabin justice. It is much nicer in person! The cabins felt more spacious and lighter than it appears in the pictures. It had everything we needed. The view from the porch and large windows were gorgeous. Kids loved the hot tub. We'll definitely consider staying here again.

Wonderful, quiet vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful stay in Bob and Carol's cabin. We arrived exhausted from a particularly stressful month in our lives. All we wanted was peace, quiet and solitude, and we found it here.

The cabin itself is essentially a small home, obviously cared for. It was very clean and spacious, the beds were comfortable, the fire was cozy, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook our own meals. The dishwasher and washer/dryer were also very convenient. Bob and Carol were great to work with.

The area is essentially a large community of octagon-shaped homes scattered on the steep edge of a small mountain. It is close to the center of Gatlinburg, but you would never know it. You can't see or hear the town at all, just solitude. We sat in the hot tub at night and watched stars in the dark sky (even saw a shooting star), and listened to coyotes howling far away. I would guess that in the summer it could be busier due to more renters, but when we were there it was absolutely quiet.

We drove around the subdivision and looked at the other cabins, and we think this has to be in one of the very best locations. This one has more space around it separating it from neighboring cabins. There is one cabin directly below on the mountainside, but unless you look down over the deck, you can't really see it. As for the view, a lot of the octagon houses have mountain views, but not like this one. Many are obscured by trees or other cabins. But the view from this cabin is incredible. The trees on the far left and right frame a gorgeous panorama of mountains. You see this view all day: from the picture windows in the living room, from the deck, and from the hot tub.

Highly recommend.
