We are the Miller's (from left, Blaise, Bryce Brent and Dina). This picture was taken sitting in front of Bella Vista's huge stack stone fireplace.
We originally fell in love with the Lodge becuase of it's fantastic views of Mount LeConte and the massive wall of windows in which to 'take it all in'. Over the past year, we have renovated EVERYTHING in the lodge; installing new hardwood floors, antler chandeliers, carpet, furniture, appliances, lighting, cabinetry...and...and...and...
It was a lot of work, but the end results is a fantastic, top-of-the-line, mountain lodge that your family and friends will love to come home to and won't ever want to leave!!
We hope you love Bella Vista Lodge as much as we do.
Our search for this cabin crossed several states and a year and a half. We found lots of beautiful locations in other areas but to quote our youngest son 'It's so BORING...there is nothing to do but look at the view!'
We hated to admit it but he was right...Where could there be a place that had the serenity, and views that the adults desired, while having enough 'fun' to hook the kids??? The answer was Gatlinburg, TN!!
We found some of the best mountain views in the South in this area. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge have lots to do for our boys, from hiking, to white water rafting, to fine dining and live shows, to horseback riding and Go-Karts. We now that this area will entertain EVERYONE in our family for years to come...
We looked low and high, but could not find a place that 'wowed' us. When we found 'Bella Vista', there was no mistaking we had found what we were searching for!
Bella Vista Lodge combines a fantastic mountain view but unintimidating roads to get there. A real rarity in these parts!
It also provides plenty of indoor and outdoor space to accomodate large groups while still keeping a cozy and intimate feel.
The Lodge is in the Arts & Crafts District, which is a quaint area with lots of small family-run artisian shops - you don't even have to buy, just go in and talk with the kind folks - they are very friendly people.
We take pride in knowing that other families can create wonderful memories to last a lifetime while staying at Bella Vista.
Please know we will do everything possible to make sure you have a great vacation in the Smokies!
