Description

Perched alongside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with a private trail that leads from its back door directly to the park, Mountain Top offers awe-inspiring views. And you don’t need to be out on the porch or the upper deck to revel in the scenery. A panoply of picture windows let you gaze out at the mountains, the woodlands, and the boundless skies from just about every room in the 2-bedroom home.

The living room, for instance, features an entire wall of windows looking out onto the mountains and flooding the space with sunlight during the day. When you’re not gazing out from the comfort of the roll-arm leather sofa, you can curl up in an armchair with a book or your tablet (Mountain Top has free WiFi), or you can watch a movie on the TV, which has cable and a DVD player. The room includes a stereo system with a CD player, as well as a library of discs to listen to.

The eat-in kitchen is impressively well equipped. Along with a table that easily seats 4, it’s chock-full of appliances, cookware, and tableware. There’s ample storage too, so you can stock up on groceries at the start of your stay, rather than having to waste precious time heading back and forth to the supermarket. And when you’re craving barbecue, you can take advantage of the grill just outside.

Mountain Top has one bedroom on the main floor and the 2nd in the loft. Each includes a wall of windows facing the Smokies so that you can open your eyes in the morning to the sight of mist rising over the peaks. The main floor’s bedroom includes a queen-size bed and a jetted tub large enough to accommodate 2 people. The tub is set alongside the windows, perfect for relishing a romantic late-night soak with your special someone.

The upstairs bedroom features a king-size bed. The room sits alongside the upper deck, which is furnished with a table and chairs. Head outside early in the morning to watch the sunrise, or slip out before bed for a nightcap and a spot of stargazing. Should you have additional guests, they can sleep on the loft’s 2 futons, which open into twin-size beds.

Mountain Top includes a full bathroom on each floor as well. Tucked in a closet of the upstairs bathroom you’ll find a washer and dryer, so you can pack lighter than usual. In fact, you don’t need to bring any towels or bedding at all; we’ll supply them all.

Like the rest of Mountain Top, the porch has been designed to make the most of the spectacular scenery. The porch swing is an especially inviting perch for listening to sparrows and larks greet the day. And when you return from hiking, fishing, rafting, or skiing, you’ll want to make a beeline to the outdoor hot tub; its massaging jets of water are sure to revitalize your weary muscles.

Mountain Top’s proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park makes it a dream getaway for anyone who looks forward to exploring the park’s trails, waterfalls, and historic cabins. That’s not the only attraction near the home, however. Despite its private locale, Mountain Top is only a few miles from Bent Creek Golf Course, designed by Masters and British Open champion Gary Player. And when you visit during the summer, you’ll have free access to Cobbly Nob's two nearby swimming pools.

What’s more, Mountain Top is less than a half-hour from downtown Gatlinburg. That’s where you’ll find the Guinness World Records Museum, an aquarium, thrill rides, and the tram that carries you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, among other attractions.

Then again, the landscape surrounding Mountain Top is so glorious and tranquil, you might want to spend most of your time relaxing right there. And why not: It’s your vacation, so enjoy it however you want. First, though, you need to make your reservation—do it today, before someone beats you to it.

Get there during daylight!

We ended up arriving to our cabin after dark and would not make that same mistake again for the rest of our trip. Since the cabin sits in the mountains the road up was very steep, narrow, and winding. It is most certainly a hike up to this cabin but it was well worth it! You absolutely can not top the view this little cabin has. You feel very secluded up here in the mountains and you can barely see any neighbors which was nice. You are only about 11 miles from downtown Gatlinburg but it takes about 30mins with the winding roads. The beds were super comfortable and the massive Jacuzzi tub was a nice touch as well as the hot tub. The bathroom on the main floor is very recently updated and offers a full shower/tub. The bathroom upstairs features only a stand up shower. The cabin held a plentiful amount of pots, pans, dishes, and silverware. The only downside was that it had said there was a limited amount of toilet paper and ect but there was no exact list or amounts. Aside from the kitchen utensils and towels the cabin was very limited stock and you should not expect anything more than: 6 rolls of toilet paper 1 roll of paper towel 2 small trash bags 2 all in one coffee bag 1 load of laundry soap A very small amount of salt and pepper 6 dishwasher soap packets 1 small bottle of dish soap 2 bars of soap This was the only downside. I wish it had been clearly outlayed what would be provided so we could better pack for our week long stay here. Other than that we absolutely loved our stay!

Mountaintop Tranquility!

Our stay was very peaceful. Close to everything there is to do in the area , but far enough away to enjoy tranquility. Best not to be right in town then you can enjoy the beautiful sights along the way . The cabin was cozy and clean with only a little bit of a scarey drive up . Glad I read reviews beforehand, because someone did recommend getting there in the daylight to navigate that road easier. Well worth it and after a couple trips up it was a piece of cake . Never have we had a better view while enjoying our coffee in the am. One last tip , when you are warned there are bears in the area listen up , because about 20 seconds after we brought our food in off the grill a large black bear was coming around the corner to see if he could get a treat .

Wonderful experience

The cabin was spotless. The furniture was spotless. I felt at home and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stacked with just about anything you would need for cooking...it literally felt like your home with the bonus of living in the mountains. The two bedrooms were spacious, big kitchen, big living room.... I will definitely make plans to stay again next fall.

Amazing Vacation

The cabin was perfect. We stayed from 8/31/19-9/05/19. I agree with other reviews when they recommend to get there before dark the first time driving in. It can be tricky if you haven’t driven it before. As for GPS not being accurate, I used Google Maps and it got to the cabin just below but it was easy to figure out. It was literally minutes from Gatlinburg but we felt it was miles away from. My wife and I stayed 5 nights and it was amazing. The view was breathtaking and it was exactly as described. We will stay there again. I recommend not just the cabin but smokymountains.com as well. They were always very professional and they delivered everything in the contract. I had to originally cancel and rebook. It was before the 48 hr deadline and they immediately refunded my money and was back in my account within two days. I am usually skeptical of overly positive reviews but I have to give credit when things are done well. Thanks for our best vacation ever.
