About the property

Luxury log cabin with awesome, ever changing mountain views, private & peaceful!

A Passionate View is a unique, Honeymoon style Log Cabin with lots of large picture windows offering breathtaking and ever changing mountain views of the Smokies featuring Mt LeConte as the star of the show from every room! Long private, paved, gardened & gated drive, to a private, beautifully maintained hunk of the Smokies!

Truly a quality, high end cabin that I clean and maintain myself, in a professional manner, including nice clean outside decks, nice clean outside furniture & Hot Tub (I'm a retired, certified spa/pool operator) safe & extremely comfortable soaks await you, with the view! Couple getaways are special and often rare, come experience a great getaway property!

* Located 6 miles east of Downtown Gatlinburg (traveling through the historic Arts & Crafts Community) where you'll find a large lot on a ridge surround by the forest, big trees and majestic Smoky Mountain Views. “A Passionate View” is also the last house on dead end, paved road offerings lots of privacy including a gated driveway! This is really a great cabin for a romantic retreat, honeymoon, anniversary or to simply escape into the mountains in luxury!

* The Master Suite is a large open loft area, overlooking the main level below, seeing the mountains out the many large windows. It features a heart shaped jacuzzi tub for 2 which sits in a alcove, overlooking the gorgeous view, a super comfy & elegant king sized bed, 42” flat screen TV, regular DVD & a full bath.

* Main living level...A Game Room, Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room make up the first floor. The Game Room features a slate Pool Table, Pub table with chairs, a 20' Flat Screen TV with DVD Player and Stereo, CD player including an IPod dock. Alongside the Game Room is a 1/2 Bath and a Laundry Closet with a full size washer and dryer. An open floor plan with vaulted ceiling & picture window views sets the stage for the Living Area, fully equipped modern Kitchen and a cozy Dining Area. The stone Gas Fireplace adds to the ambiance as the glow from the fire enchants this open floor plan. Relax on the leather, double reclining sofa or in the leather electric recliner and enjoy your favorite movies on a 40' Flat Screen with Blu-Ray DVD Player, Bluetooth sound bar, full range Comcast Cable, WiFi, free local and long distance telephone Service. This level offers a roomy deck highlighting the awesome view of the mountains and the lush forest. Here you can savor the memories and enjoy the outside life, turn on the porch gas fireplace (operational year round!) and relax in the hot tub or kick back in the rocking chairs.

* Stroll out (over pavement) to the“Chillin & Grillin” area where there is a charcoal BBQ grill to cook outside, dine at the covered picnic table deck area, there is even a step down additional sunning deck with Adirondack chairs off the picnic table deck to absorb some southern rays while relaxing next to a vast forest enjoying the stunning views, also a great deck for star gazing! ahh Paradise! All 3 sets of outdoor furniture is composite (different styles) that I keep nice, plus the wood picnic table!

* Behind the picnic area is a trail that runs along the ridge through the forest for 300 yards (a strip of land owned by the National Park for a future scenic highway (still at least 10 years away) , ending up in a cluster of rental cabins that also have views and are neat to explore!

* All roads are paved to this cabin. The driveway/parking area is also paved and very ample, making it easy to turn around or park something like a motorcycle trailer. Car wash area too, soap provided!

You might want to click onto the 'map' tab to see the location, then click 'satellite' in the upper right corner of the map & zoom in (see the huge paved parking area, pin is slightly off). This will show you the vast forest that this cabin is in & the distance of neighbor roofs. Then Zoom out until you see both towns to get an idea of the location, nice location!

The booking and check in process is easy.

Half the total amount is requested at time of booking, the other half is due 2 weeks before your arrival date. This web site will send you a payment request - reminder 1 week before the 2nd payment is due, makes it easy!

I will then email you with directions to the cabin and access information (door & alarm codes) after the 2nd payment to the email address you provided. I will also email you on check in day when I have the cabin ready for you, before 3pm, then you can wander in whenever you choose. I'm available if you need assistance (I live a few cabins away), silent if you don't!

My other 2 cabins are also on HomeAway & VRBO...Sweet Memories by the Pool #3609963 has a private pool & The Fishing Hole #3616430 has a private fish pond. Lots to choose from, all fun, private and serene. I'm also a hiker if you need info about the 900 miles of maintained trails in the Smokies to choose from!

Relaxing, refreshing, rejuvenated!

A Passionate View was a wonderful place for some refreshing quiet. It was nice to get up and see majestic mountains. The hot tub was really nice too. Ironically the only bear we saw was in a patch of woods on hwy. 321 as we headed home. Fabulous place to stay.

Spectacular view and wonderful cabin. The cabin was very clean and every detail was worked out.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife enjoyed this cabin so much. It was peacefully quiet and had amazing views. Waking up each morning to a view of the mountains was awesome. The hot tub and outdoor fireplace was perfect each evening. Highly recommend if you need a relaxing and peaceful get away.

We came here for our honeymoon and the stay was perfect. When we arrived there was music playing through the house and all the curtains were open so we could see the amazing view. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

Beautiful View. Beautiful Cabin. Great Stay. It was the little details like having music playing when we got there and storing spare blankets beside the recliner that really set this cabin apart from other's we've stayed in. Great job!

This cabin is beautiful!! It was so clean and the bed was very comfortable. The view is amazing and the pictures don't do it justice. Valerie's (the owner) dog Toby visited us every morning!! As we are dog lovers, this was an extra bonus!!
