Mountaintop Experience offers a comfortable authentic cabin atmosphere and a wonderful mountain-top setting with spectacular panoramic fifteen mile views into the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. If incredible mountain views are at the top of your 'must have' list, this cabin will not let you down.
From the back of the cabin no other cabins are visible. We replaced the upper deck early in 2017, replacing the spindles with hog wire, making the views even more unobstructed. It's amazing what lengths some owners go through to take pictures that appear to show privacy! We have been burned several times in this way.

About Lori Thompson
Owners Charles, Debbie, Jeff, Lori, and Charlotte Thompson Charlie, Jeff, and Lori, all engineers, appreciate the structural integrity of Mountaintop Experience. Debbie, a teacher, can't stop marveling at the view. Charlotte, our fifteen-year old enjoys the view, the comfy sofas and the Wi-Fi most of all. When she was younger her favorite thing was the hot tub. She would always make sure to remember her goggles. After all, all professional hot tub swimmers wear goggles!
Lori Thompson purchased this Cabin in 2007
Why Lori Thompson chose Sevierville
My husband and I having been visiting the Great Smoky Mountains for thirty years. We've stayed in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Sevierville, Walden's Creek, Townsend, and Wears Valley. We love them all. Since we live in Knoxville, several weekend trips a year, even on the spur of the minute, are not out of the question. We've stayed in many different cabins. The problem was that there was always something that could have been better. A cabin with a great view would offer no privacy. One with privacy had no view. We wanted a cabin with as many amenities as possible that we could count on consistently. A 'known quantity', if you will. Of all the cabins we've stayed in over the years, none can hold a candle to Mountaintop Experience. Previously, it was named A Wilderness Lodge. However, since it isn't in the wilderness and it isn't a lodge, we changed the name to Mountaintop Experience. We hope you have a wonderful experience on our portion of this mountaintop.
What makes this Cabin unique
The design of Mountaintop Experience is ingenious. With virtually the entire back of the house being windows, the mountain view is the centerpiece of the cabin. You can simply sit on the sofa and enjoy the incredible views. You can easily forget that anyone else is around.

Clean, well maintained, with unbelievable views! Lori is super easy to work with and helpful. Our four kids ages 12, 15,17, &19 had plenty of space and enjoyed the arcade, pool table, and hot tub...and of course much time was spent on the deck taking in the spectacular view. We wanted time away from the hustle and bustle but convenient to hiking. This was the perfect location. We got to put our phones down and spend some good quality family time!
Thanks Lori for sharing your home with us!
Thanks so much for taking time to give us a review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your family time and were able to unplug. We are blessed to have this place and are pleased to share it with others. It's not a surprise that this neck of the woods is referred to as God's country. Please come back for another visit!
Superb cabin with gorgeous view!!
We just returned from a wonderful 5 night stay at Mountain Top Experience. It is exactly as described and then some!! We have stayed in a lot of cabins in the area, and this one by far is the cleanest, best maintained, and INCREDIBLY stocked with anything you may need. You can definitely tell that this cabin is well loved by the owners and not "just a rental" that you get through most cabin rental companies. I would recommend this cabin to anyone and we will definitely be returning! The owner (Lori) was great to work with!! We also had a visit from a bear! We spotted him at the cabin next door and then watched him from our deck as he walked thru the small wood lot to the backside of our cabin and down into the woods below.
Fantastic Property with Beautiful Views
Great location, very clean and spacious. Owners are very gracious and ensure all needs are met. We will be back!
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, Philip. We are so glad you had a good time. Please come back. We give 10% discount for return guests.
And thank you so much for your service.
A Real Mountaintop Experience
Very spacious. Mattress on downstairs pullout sofa, not so good. It was clean and welcoming. I would recommend to others.
The view is amazing!
We loved how peaceful the area was. The cabin was beautiful and the owners are extremely kind and pleasant to work with. I would recommend this place to everyone but I can't because I selfishly want to stay here the same time every year and I don't want to share ha!
Great convenient location, beautiful view, easy access.
The house is very nicely furnished and has all necessary household items to stay several days. It was the perfect size for our family of six and the kids really enjoyed the pool table.
Mountaintop Experience is located off of Wears Valley Road about five miles from Townsend, known as the 'Quiet side of the Smokies'. This puts it ten miles from the Pigeon Forge parkway.
