4 Mountain Cabins You’d Have to See to Believe

Buzz, Family

Everyone knows that one of the best reasons to visit the Smokies is because of the secluded and luxurious cabins.  However, we haven’t yet discussed what cabins are truly unique and worth an in-person visit.  Let’s consider four cabins in the mountains we’re still raving about, courtesy of TimberwindsCabins.

  1. The Little Wing Cabin Retreat

The Little Wing is a forest retreat that has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and can fit up to six people.  Deep in the woods, it gives you a secluded but scenic view of the autumn/winter season as well as the nearby Mt. Le Conte.  The fully stocked kitchen allows charcoal grilling, while the stained glass windows make the interiors as luxurious as the outside.  Other amenities include an electric fireplace and an outdoor hot tub on the porch.

  1. Brookside in Wears Valley

Heading over to Wears Valley, you’ll find Brookside, a very nostalgic cabin set among mountains and trees.  The brook features a wooden walkway, a small seating area by the water, and a four-person hot tub on a covered deck.  Imagine being surrounded by nature as you enjoy king-sized beds, a gas fireplace, multiple TVs, and a full kitchen.  Ideal location too, a short distance from the National Park.  

  1. Moonlight Vista

The Moonlight Vista in Gatlinburg offers a quiet and serene location amid mountains with amazing views of the night sky.  It’s a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment but offers a 180 degree view of the Smoky Mountains, one of the best views available.  Inside, it has a wall of windows as well as a stone fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub.  Pool tables are also in the cabin, as well as video games, making it great for families or friends.  

  1. Heaven’s Gate

Who says cabins are rustic and modest?  This amazing, three story cabin offers unparalleled privacy, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, three king beds, a four person outdoor hot tub AND an indoor Jacuzzi tub, a gas burning fireplace, AC, a washer and dryer, dishwasher, and full kitchen.  

Indeed, just because we’re dealing with cabins doesn’t make them any less luxurious than a hotel.  Most of the amenities are hotel-quality, even down to the custom wood bed fixtures, the multiple story units, and high-end furniture inside.  Of course, for many visitors the best feature is the 180 views of the forest or the mountains themselves, allowing people to become immersed in the environment.

Coming here works best when you stop answering texts and emails and turn your phone off—except for emergencies.  Don’t come here to stall…come here to unwind and let go of your daily stresses.  Become immersed in nature and enjoy the meditative relaxation you get from a cabin in the Smokies.
