About Tom and Lucinda

We live in Miami, Fl but we love the mountains and the friendly people in Tennessee. Tom grew up in in Switzerland and Lucinda grew up in New York state. Together we have traveled to many countries for hiking and beach vacations but the Smoky Mountains and the Florida Panhandle are top on our list. We enjoy all the outdoor activities that both areas offers and the warmth of smaller town living!

Tom and Lucinda purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Tom and Lucinda chose Tennessee

We chose the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area for a number of reasons. It offers great recreational activities year round. It has something for everyone- from kids to seniors. You are close to everything but still feel like you are far away. The area has wonderful scenery, national parks, mild weather and friendly people. Plus the area is centrally located and easy to get to from many states. You can return to Eastern TN year after year and still find new things to do!

What makes this cabin unique

You will enjoy the closeness to Cades Cove, Smoky Mountain Park, Dollywood, shopping, all activities, restaurants and other attractions. In addition, when you are in the cabin, you will feel like you are a million miles away from it all! This really is a bit of paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

After such a tragic beginning - the first cabin we rented burned to the foundation - we were offered a stay at the owner's luxury 6 bdrm cabin and it was definitely luxury! The view was incredible and nothing was left to the imagination as the cabin was amply stocked for a huge crowd. My brother and his wife joined us and we accomplished our 'mission' and learned where we do and where we do not want to live, although with shortcuts to avoid tourists! I could not be more grateful to Tom and Lucinda who made our 50th anniversary and my 74th birthday celebrations possible.

Was very pleased with the cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children and grandchildren and had a wonderful time. We had 18 people and had more than enough room for all of us. All the grandchildren had so much fun in the game room. The view was beautiful. The cabin very well supplied, would highly recommend.

The Most Beautiful View in the Smokies

  • 5 of 5

What a great home and SPECTACULAR view that is only a few minutes drive into downtown Gatlinburg! We had 17 people (all adults/teens and one toddler). The place was perfect with everyone having their own space. Easily put baby gates on stairs so there were no issues there. The kitchen was well stocked and we really enjoyed being able to eat together at the large table overlooking the beautiful mountains. Tom and Lucinda were great hosts, always returning emails and requests for information promptly. We highly recommend this home away from home!!!!

We loved the property. Great for kids and adults. Very spacious and well equiped.

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 6 kids together for a family vacation. We had a great time. Beautiful view of the Smokies from the big picture window. The hot tub on the deck was great. We sat out on the rocking chairs until late at night. Even had a bear run across the driveway. Plenty of comfortable sleeping space and more TV's than necessary. The owners were very responsive but we really didn't need their help much at all. Couldn't ask for much more.

Fabulous accommodations, gorgeous views, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has an amazing view! The property is well maintained and the owners are fantastic to work with. The floorplan is ideal for large extended families like ours. The location is very convenient to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and very private. No need to worry about close or noisy neighbors.

Wonderful spring break.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11 enjoyed the spacious area of this house. This has been our 4th visit to Gatlinburg, 3 of those we have rented this house. There have been several upgrades every time we come and we were so glad this year that this house was spared from the fire. The view of the mountains is wonderful and I could sit for hours watching the mountains change. Our 11 consists of ages 1 3/4 - 71. That includes a couple of teens. We sat at the table and played card games at night and for breakfast we sat at the same table and watched the mountains change. It is close to downtown Gatlinburg - which we feel has changed for the worse, the craft loop - which is very interesting, and Pigeon Forge. We also visited the Aquarium, Tuckaleechee Cave, into the Park to wander some trails. Our youngest children called the house "Our Adventure House."

It has been a good and relaxing week, and everyone is very reluctant to leave to go back to reality. Tom and Lucinda are perfect hosts and when we return to the Gatlinburg area, we will definitely try to reserve this house.

Owner's Response: Hello Cynthia Thank you for staying once again at Smoky Mountain High and for making it your home away from home! We appreciate that you noticed the upgrades. As with any home, upgrades are a part of life! We try to make the cabin comfortable for all our guests and provide amenities that they will enjoy. We are thankful that Smoky Mountain High and Mountain View Retreat were spared during the fires. We sad that we lost All About View but we know it could have been worse. We hope that you will consider staying at Smoky Mountain High again in the future (or one of our other homes in FL & TN). It is always a pleasure having you stay at our cabin! Warmest regards, Tom and Lucinda
