Scenic Sanctuary was in "tip top" shape. Well cleaned and well set up for a great stay.

  • 5 of 5

Directions from the owner were great. What a view from each of the three floors. House was clean and well stocked with needed accessories for a wonderful stay. Scenic Sanctuary was everything it claimed to be in the advertisements. No disappointment. Enjoyed our stay and the cabin was very convenient to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, the Smokey Mountains, and a lot of fun spots for zip lining, white water rafting and you name it. Yes, you are driving on mountain roads but there was no problems. Highly recommend staying here.

Great Cabin in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

First let me say Jim and Tammi are great owners to deal with. Their response time to questions we had was almost immediate. The cabin itself was fantastic. Its was neat and clean upon check-in. The location is ideal as it is right in the middle of everywhere you would want to be. We would definitely recommend it and stay here again.

A great place to stay for a family of 8!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a wonderful place for my wife & I and our 6 children to stay while we vacationed in nearby Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The accommodations were a great fit for our family. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom, there was plenty of room for relaxing and the dining table worked out fine. My wife and I enjoyed relaxing on the deck with it's view of the mountains while the children had fun playing in the loft area. The cabin is out away from the crowds in town, but yet conveniently located if you want to spend time in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Smokies. We would return if we get in the area!

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and all I can say, it was a great place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The three floors were perfect for everyone in our group (4 adults, 2 teenagers and 3 smaller kids) to have their own space. The cabin was very clean and welcoming. The location itself was great, keeping you within 10 minutes of Pigeon Forge or 20 minutes from most attractions or locations you may want to experience.

I will say there are three things to realize before arriving. 1. The grill is not much of a grill, if you are going to plan to grill more than a couple burgers, plan to do something else or bring your own grill. 2. Be aware that this is a mountainous area, and the driveway is definitely that of a mountain cabin (for those of you not used to the steep road conditions). The driveway is very steep, but quite manageable (likely not in icy conditions). 3. Parking is not the best situation, even compared to the cabins around this one. We had a mini van and a F150 and we had to park at an angle to allow other cabin visitors to get by. Any more than 2 vehicles in a group would be VERY difficult to park by the cabin on a solid surface.

All in all, I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a nice vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains. Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thanks Chris, glad you and your group enjoyed Scenic Sanctuary and the mountains. We look forward to your return. Our grill is a standard sized "park style" charcoal grill about 15 feet from the left front corner of the cabin. It has worked well for our most of our guests for the last 6 years. Yes the driveway is steep, however it is paved, straight with a left turn at the top and is only about 200 feet long. Over the last 6 years, everyone of our guests have been able to check in, even in the winters. This driveway is tame compared to many other driveways to cabins with views. You can park two cars/trucks (see our Suburban in the snow picture) on the pavement in front of the cabin, one on the flat grass area to the right of the cabin and one on the grass area to the left of the cabin on a slight incline. This is one of the few cabins in the area where there's paved parking directly in front of the cabin with just 1 step up.
