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.

Bob Howard purchased this cabin in 2007

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 cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the cabin for 4 wonderful nights. We woke up on the second morning to a thunderstorm and no power. I called Bob and he was a big help to tell me what was going on. The ride up to the cabin was a bit scary, but it was our fault ( husband didn't listen to directions) so we had taken the long way up. The cabin is everything that it is described and more. The view is amazing! Thank you Bob & Carol for sharing your home with us. Great people to deal with. My husband and I wanted to go back in October but it is booked. Will definitely rent the cabin again.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute of our 4 day stay at Wa-ta-vu cabin. Now we feel recharged. We did many fun things in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Felt great to be able to come home to a clean and we'll maintained cabin after a long day of touristing. We highly recommend this cabin. Thanks to the Howards for their hospitality!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. We stay at the cabin a lot too. We got to stay the whole month of Jan. Winter time is very quite on the mountain. Many days we never left the cabin and never saw another car. Have a safe trip home.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Even though we have never met, Bob and Carol seem like our best friends. They always call to make sure we arrive with no issues. Our family has stayed 3 times and my daughter stayed on her honeymoon. This has become our home away from home. We arrived on Wed.11th, It snowed on Friday and it was beautiful. However, it was a bigger storm coming so we cut our vacation short. But, we plan on coming back for Thanksgiving. It is peaceful and relaxing and I highly recommend to anyone.

Thanks again Bob and Carol,

David and Tammy Dalton

Best getaway EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is amazing!! It has everything you need to enjoy your stay. It's so beautiful. The view was spectacular. My husband and I enjoyed our stay and Mr. Howard was very nice and answered all my questions. The only thing I was disappointed in is that we didn't see the local bear!! We will defiantly will be back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us.

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
