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!!

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.

Wonderful stay in the Smokey Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Wa Ta Vu and were sad to leave. The cabin is very well equipped and comfortable, with everything you could possibly need. Bob was really helpful and we felt very welcome in the cabin. We used th grill, which is really good and had some lovely meals sat out on the deck. The cabin is easy to get to but set a little back from the others, so it feels secluded and if you can't relax there, you can't relax anywhere.

We picked the cabin mainly for the view and it is amazing. We never grew tired of looking at it and finished each day in the hot tub, watching the light change over the mountains.

Everything we'd hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this cottage. The view is just like the photos show, we really enjoyed watching the clouds and light change over the mountains in the mornings and evenings. The cottage is located closer to a couple neighbors than I had expected but it's set up above them and at the end of a private driveway so it was nice and safe to let our kids roam and play outside. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. Responsive and helpful owner. We were happy with the stay.
