Come find out why locals say Embracing View is the best view property they have ever seen in the Smokies. Located on the summit of Hatcher Mountain, you can see miles from both the front and back of the house. Morning sunrises over Cove Mountain and Wears Valley, evening sunsets over Bluff Mountain and the ridges cascading toward the horizon. You feel solitude here, surrounded by nature, as if you have your own private mountain. Yet, groceries and the strip in Pigeon Forge are less than 18 minutes away, and you can be inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park in just 12 minutes. All cabins on our street get five star reviews for their views. Embracing View has the same view of Wears Valley plus a second view just as good in the opposite direction!!! It's like a ten star view! Guests have given Embracing View 50 consecutive 5-star reviews since we opened in September 2017, and the cabin was awarded a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence.
We chose the name Embracing View because the cabin feels like a warm hug... country charm inside and on the porches, lush landscaping and lots of green around the home, and the gorgeous panoramic views. Guests tell us the best things about the cabin are the beauty of the views and the property, being surrounded by nature, and the location, far from the crowds yet just a short drive to attractions, restaurants, and shopping. If your goal is to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature and the mountains, this is the place!
The best feature of the house is the decks, which are a front row seat to big views all around. The main floor has a large wrap-around deck, and the upper floor has porches facing each view. The views never stop changing from dawn to dusk, with the sunrise and sunset, fog, wisps of smoke, and weather blowing through. One guest said that the upper porch facing the sunrise is the best place in the world they have ever sat and enjoyed a cup of coffee, watching as the fog burns off of the valley floor.
The main floor features the kitchen, dining room, living room, and a master suite (king bed) with attached bath, featuring a whirlpool bathtub with an amazing view. Most every part of the house has a view out a window or door somewhere.
The upper floor has a private bedroom with king bed, a den that is set up as a bedroom (queen bed), and a loft with a sofa bed. The floor sleeps six total and has a central bathroom with shower.
The lower level is a game room with big TV, pool table, foosball table, and arcade to keep the kids (little ones and grown up ones too) busy. One end of this level is set up as a bedroom with adjacent bathroom. This bedroom can be private from the other floors, or you can fold out the two futons in the TV area and sleep four more people. Parents with up to four kids or a group of six kids would enjoy this space.
Three couples can stay in Embracing View and each have their own floor with bedroom and bathroom for complete privacy, a popular option for couples retreats.
There are 5 hi def flat screen TVs: game room (lower), living room and private bedroom (main), private bedroom and den (upper). We have DirecTV with Genie so that you can record sporting events, movies, or shows while you are away and then watch them when you like. Wi-fi also enables you to stay connected and stream content.
We are proud to say that our other cabin, Sensational View, has also received over 50 5-star reviews and has won three consecutive Tripadvisor Certificates of Excellence. We want every family coming to our place to enjoy their stay and their whole vacation, as some the best family times we have enjoyed have been our trips to the Smokies. We will be delighted to talk with you, get to know you, and help you get the most out of your trip!
Area services: Kroger, Publix and IGA supermarkets within 20 minutes. General store just minutes away at the bottom of the mountain. Swimming is available in the summer at Huckleberry Meadows, less than ten minutes away. Everything else you could want is 20-30 minutes away in Pigeon Forge, including restaurants, dinner theaters, mini golf, go karts, golf, and the Pigeon Forge community center.
Parking for four cars is easy, up to six or seven if you squeeze. There is a turnaround area at the top of the driveway to ease getting in and out. The final half mile up to the cabin is narrow and windy, but most guests are quite comfortable with it after driving up and down a couple times. All wheel drive or four wheel drive is recommended in the winter, as weather can be unpredictable.
