About Barbara Murray

We love the Smokies! We came to Gatlinburg on our honeymoon and have come several times every year since. We have the most incredible memories of our times in the Smokies. When we had the opportunity to purchase a top quality cabin in the best resort in Gatlinburg we were thrilled. We want to give other families the opportunity to grow closer and create fantastic experiences and memories as we have on our vacations in the Smokies.

Barbara Murray purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Barbara Murray chose Gatlinburg

To enjoy the beauty of Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains with our family and to allow other families to enjoy time together, as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is in downtown Gatlinburg, but just far enough off of the beaten path to give you the feel of being away from it all. The views at the cabin are simply amazing. You are looking at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We have done our best to make our cabin feel like Home away from Home, unlike many of the rental cabins in the county. We added the little extra amenities to enhance your stay. We are proud of the cleanliness of our cabin and have gone the extra mile to insure it is well maintained.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Barbara, I absolutely loved your cabin. It was so beautiful and I loved your decor. We all

enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and gazing at the mountains. What a

beautiful view! Even at night, the lights from the other cabins reminded me of

Christmas. I hope we are able to stay again sometime. Thank you for sharing

such a wonderful home. Priscilla B.

Amazing view & beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just stayed at Barbara's beautiful cabin last week. We had such a wonderful time on our first visit to Gatlinburg. This cabin is perfectly located just a few miles outside of Gatlinburg, in the mountains. The view from the rear decks are truly amazing, we couldn't get over how pretty the setting was. It is an easy drive into the neighborhood & up the roads to the house. It was important for me not to have to navigate really windy or hilly roads to reach the cabin. We had no problems whatsoever. The cabin is very beautifully decorated with three king master suites, one on each level. The hot tub is perfectly placed to enjoy the amazing views. We found everything to be in good working order and had no problems. We loved the grill and cooked out often during our stay, but we also enjoyed being close enough to Gatlinburg to dine out several times as well. We found all the beds to be very comfortable and the cabin is very clean. We enjoyed an easy two hour ride to Asheville one day, to visit the Biltmore! We also did ziplining, white water rafting and horse back riding, all close to the cabin. Plus we were an easy drive to the Smoky Mountains, which we toured a few times. We enjoyed Clingman's Dome & Cades Cove loop road the best. We highly recommend this cabin and hope to come back again! It was like a home away from home! Thanks Barbara!

Great location with spectacular views !

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved our stay at this beautiful cabin. Unbelievable view from the wrap around deck. Perfectly located just a short drive into downtown Gatlinburg and Smoky Mountain National forest. The cabin had everything you could possibly need and all we had to bring were towels for the pool. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the game room. Barbara was super responsive and even help find my sons baseball glove that we left behind and is mailing it back to us. Overall we had a great trip into the area and AHH THE VIEW was the perfect place to stay . We couldn't have been more satisfied.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Ahh the View! Barbara was great to work with in getting us all the information we needed for a wonderful stay. The cabin is very clean. It is a great location - easy access to both Gatlinburg and the park. The cabin is easy to reach - no winding roads with steep drop offs, as is required to reach some cabins. We recommend this cabin!

Beautiful Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My daughter-in-law booked this cabin for a week's stay. There were five of us. The cabin was wonderful- 3 king suites on 3 levels. Everyone had a space and privacy. The kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed the large grill and hot tub on the deck. It's location was perfect, and the scenery epitomized the beauty of the Smokies. It felt secluded, but was close to town. The cabin was clean and comfortable.

We loved it!!!

(Additionally the Gatlinburg Recreation Center is close, and we enjoyed bowling, the gym, and indoor pool.)

Amazing Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just right for my family: well kept, clean, and with cabin décor and

extra touches to give it that upscale Smoky Mountain feel. The cabin has 3 king

bedrooms with baths on 3 levels that gave us all the privacy and space we needed. We

enjoyed the game room with extra-large TV and pool table. My son enjoyed having his

own space and sleeping on the futon in the game room.

The two decks are perfect for any time of day. They both look out on the stunning

view of the Smokey Mountains with Mt LeConte in view. There is plenty of log seating

on both decks: the lower has a swing, upper has table, Webber gas grill, and hot

tub. We enjoyed cooking out and eating on the wrap-around deck several of our

evening meals. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare your

meals. We enjoyed eating breakfast in the cabin.

The cabin is in a fantastic location. Food City just a few minutes away. Downtown

and the craft loop entrance just 5 minutes away. There is even a back way to Pigeon

Forge from the cabin (to avoid the traffic). We enjoyed Dollywood in Pigeon Forge.

The resort pool is an added plus. The children and several adults enjoyed the pool 3


Couldn't have asked for a better family vacation home. We are making plans to come

back to "Ahhh the View in the Fall".

Would recommend to families, couples, and anyone. Everything we needed was provided

to us in this exceptionally clean cabin.

Not as happy as we thought we would be!

  • 2 of 5

The best thing I can say about this cabin is all 3 beds were very comfortable which gave us all a great night of sleep. The pictures look great on line, but what you don't see is all the many knock knacks and junk sitting all over the you little place to put your things. Brought our food for the week and not one cupboard had a empty shelf...again too much junk..Tupperware bowls with no matching lid or lids with no matching bowls all thrown into one drawer. Baby sippie cups with lids that were chewed up...who would need or want to use these? Dishes for 20, but one frying pan and no lid...not a complete set of measuring cups or spoons, cheap unusable knives and many more commonly used kitchen items either not there or missing, but if you want to make ice cream or waffles you can! The refrigerator is old and not working ice when we arrived...slow ice maker...freezer formed ice where not needed, and food in the other area of the frig, like our eggs, fruit and veggies froze causing lots of food loss...and loss of money spent! If you are like me and hate spiders and will not like the decks...sat in a chair which had a cobweb over 2 feet big...they were everywhere. Plus, if you want to look out your windows, they were filthy, especially the large main window above the entrance. Too many pillows and blankets in the living room and the rec room...smelled like they weren't wash for a while. Overall, we didn't feel comfortable with cleanliness. Sheets didn't even match...and so wrinkled...looked like they were rolled up in a ball and thrown in the corner before the beds were made. Also didn't like that there wasn't a blanket on the bed and you only had a top sheet plus the bed comfort, which also smelled...was not cleaned to use. I think the main problem with this cabin is that it is not managed by someone local, so no one is inspecting the cleaning crew. It also has way to many of the owners personal items. Less is better, especially when the party staying there needs space for their own belongings. We would never rent this cabin again.
