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 Tennessee

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.

Wa Ta Vu is an excellent name for this property!

  • 5 of 5

Wa Ta Vu is a very nice house with an amazing view of the Smokies including Mt. LeConte. This view is available through the front windows of the house and the hot tub. In the many years that we have been coming to the Smokies, it offers the best view we have ever had. The house is well maintained, nicely decorated, dog friendly, and comfortable with many amenities that are appreciated including a propane gas grill, cable TV, a well stocked kitchen, and several family-oriented movies and games. The landscaping is beautiful and included (in May) blooming rhododendron and mountain laurel. Our wonderful trip to the Smokies was enhanced by our stay in this house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for writing your review. We felt the same way when we were looking at a cabin to buy. The moment we stepped out onto the deck we knew this was the place for us. I said that I could fix any thing inside the cabin but the view I cannot fix. Thanks for staying with us this Spring. We hope you can make it back sometime.

Great everything!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at What A View. The view is breathtaking and the cabin had everything we needed and then some. We were able to bring our 2 dogs along and they loved it as well. It was nice to have a yard with grass for the dogs!! Also, the cabin has its own driveway which was a plus!! The beds and the family room furniture were very comfortable. I loved all of the decorations in the cabin. Bob and Carol have done a wonderful job making the cabin very comfortable and livable!! The only complaint that I have which I am pretty sure is out of Bob and Carol's control is that the time went by way too FAST!! We will definitely be returning and I would recommend this to anyone!!

Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We ventured to Gatlinburg to get a break from Washington, DC for the holiday and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The cabin had an absolutely beautiful view, was very clean and organized (Bob has directions/explanations laid out for everything you might have questions about), and although it was located in a quiet wooded sub-division was just a short drive into downtown and the grocery store. The hot-tub was great and had a spectacular view of the National Forest. The view was something that we quickly realized most cabins don't have despite being located on the side of the mountain. Most of the other cabins were obstructed by trees but ours had a perfect sightline and offered beautiful views of the fall foliage and sunrise/sunset. We were the last guests to stay in the cabin before the big fire that ravaged the area and were beyond thrilled to hear that the cabin survived. We will surely be back again and will gladly recommend it to everyone we know.
