About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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. 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.

Main Level: Spacious floor plan with cathedral ceilings throughout and hardwood floors (except in master and baths), Great Room with Stone Gas Fireplace and Full Length Picture Windows, 42" HD LED TV, DVD/CD player/AM/FM Surround Sound, Updated Kitchen with brand new granite countertops, granite sink, and bronze faucet, Stainless Steel/Black Appliances, Dining Room with large table and seating for six, Countertop seating for two, two piece Bath, Master King Bedroom with brand new carpet (with Full Bath, TV, DVD player and access to upper deck), Uncovered deck spanning the length of the cabin with gas grill, a pub table with three chairs, two single rockers and one double rocker.

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 marvalling at the view. Charlotte, our thirteen-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. All professional hot tub swimmers wear goggles!

Lori Thompson purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Lori Thompson chose Tennessee

My husband and I having been visiting the Great Smoky Mountains for twenty-eight 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This experience was really a "Home Away From Home" but I have to add a plus to that. The pictures we took and advertisements just don't give it the true justice. The cabin and scenery and experience is unimaginable. We really appreciate the use of your cabin. Everything and I mean "Everything" was Great. We appreciate you and your husband as well as all of your assistance and kindness. The experience can not be explained or expressed in words. I can now recommend your cabin to anyone without delay and with a good conscience. We pray that God will continue to bless you and your family.

Perfect Family Getaway and Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this cabin for Christmas last-minute after the first one we rented was sadly destroyed in the wildfires. Lori was incredibly accommodating leading up to our stay, answering emails really quickly!

The house itself was incredible. The view was absolutely breathtaking -- so relaxing to sit on the porch and drink coffee and look at the mountains. You really cannot see another house from the deck! The house itself was clean, inviting and the kitchen was well-stocked. I cooked our Christmas meal along with all other meals, no problem.

We played pool every night, watched DVD's and enjoyed each other's company. We did not use the hot tub, but Lori mentioned they clean it after each guest, no matter if the guests use it or not.

We would love to return to this cabin for a relaxing future vacation!!! Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the great review! I'm so glad you and your family had a wonderful Christmas here. We try hard to serve our guests by offering a comfortable, clean, updated, well stocked cabin for their family to relax. I was so glad you rented Mountaintop Experience last minute. The people who had been on the calendar for months backed out after the great fire 11/16. They had gotten travel insurance, but were having a hard time being reimbursed, as they were actually able to come to our cabin, as it was not affected by the fire. Thank God. (Due to all of the negative media, they were afraid that all of Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville were destroyed.) Since they cancelled within thirty days, they would lose 100% of their rent. (We used to not have that policy, until two different guests had been scheduled for months, then cancelled last minute and we were out two full weeks of rent.) Anyway, because you and another guest booked, we returned the other guests their rent. Thanks for being determined to stick to your Smoky Mountain destination, even after the fire. With the local people so dependent on the service industry, we are grateful for travelers like you! #MountainStrong

Great view!

  • 5 of 5

The view from Mountain Experience sets this cabin apart from every other we have ever stayed in. Beautiful!

This was our first family vacation with all our adult kids and our first grandchild. We had a wonderful time in this great house. The owners were wonderful to work with, have decorated the house beautifully and have stocked the kitchen with good quality items that make cooking fun and easy.

We whole heartily recommend that you book your next adventure to the Smokey Mountains at Mountaintop Experience...you wont be disappointed.

The cabin was just as pictured - spacious with a great view!

Perfect size for 6 adults. Clean, great kitchen and comfortable beds. The location gave an easy back access to the Smoky Mountain Park. Would gladly stay here again and would recommend.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck was magnificent! We all felt like we were a part of the beautiful Smokies! The cabin was very comfortable and had all the essentials. The location was perfect for access to the Smoky Mountians and to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. There were lots of places to hike, shop, and many restaurants nearby. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us and for being very helpful with directions and suggestions on things to do and see!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! The view was the selling point for us. We are going to replace the upper deck next week. We are going to replace the vertical pickets with industrial strength hog wire! So, the view will have minimal obstructions. We are super excited about it. Thanks so much for the review!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Mountaintop Experience was awesome. The house was clean and well kept. Everything was where it should be and everything worked like they said it would. The views of the surrounding mountains was great and drinking coffee and listening to the hillside wake up each morning was my favorite part. Close proximity to the strip in Pigeon Forge. During the few times that it rained the kids had plenty to do with the pool table and hot tub. I would highly recommend booking this cabin as you will not be disappointed. I look forward to making this the first cabin that my family will re-book as we frequent the are yearly. Thanks again.
