We'll cut to the chase: this is the best view property in Gatlinburg, a gorgeous new custom that we designed to take full advantage of the view, in a perfect location just minutes from downtown, groceries, and restaurants. Look at our pictures and read our reviews... guest after guest says that this is the best place around.
When we bought the rickety cabin on this property in 2015, we didn't know that we would be building a new custom home on the lot just a couple years later, but the wildfire of 2016 was a complete loss. We hired a Knoxville architect to design a dream home that takes advantage of the view in every detail and then celebrated the opening of our new home August 8, 2018. Guests are immersed in the view, seeing it from the moment they enter the home, through the kitchen, dining room, great room, game room, and most of the bedrooms, too. And the view only gets bigger as you pass out onto the wraparound decks... over 17 miles wide and 11 miles deep. To take full advantage of the location, we made the third story a penthouse as high as the city would allow. With a 16-foot wide wall of windows its panoramic view is unrivaled. Guests are already having lively debates about who gets to sleep in the penthouse!
The NEW Sensational View is 3,061 square feet, five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and sleeps up to 23, with 19 guests in bedrooms and two sofa beds in the common areas.
The first floor and specifically bedroom two are designed to be very accessible. Many of our past guests have been interested in easy access for elderly family members (we have elderly family members too). This is important to us! The shower has a bench, grab bars, and a hand shower. All toilets in the house are chair height, and this bathroom has a grab bar running along the toilet.
The first floor has a great room including the kitchen, dining room, and family room. The 12 foot reclaimed barn wood dining table enables large families to eat around one table, and we also have a large sectional in the great room and a patio table on the deck so that you can be close to your friends and family. The whole room has views toward Gatlinburg and the mountains with a wall of windows. This room will have a 70" TV.
All five bedrooms have attached bathrooms. The master suite on the first floor has a king bed and large bathroom with shower and separate tub. It has great views and direct access to the deck and hot tub. This and all bedrooms will have large hi definition TVs.
The second floor has a large game room, designed as a balcony overlooking the great room and the view. It features a pool table, foosball table, cocktail arcade, and 65" TV. Bedrooms 3 (two queen beds and big views) and 4 (a full over full bunk plus a triple twin bunk, sleeps seven in five separate beds) are on opposite sides of the game room. A wraparound deck connects the bedrooms outside and offers not only amazing views of the city and mountains but also a neat perspective looking back into the house. (Thanks to our architect for convincing us this was a good idea. We were skeptical but it's awesome! We are starting to refer to it as the "catwalk.") These bathrooms have shower/tub combos to meet everyone's needs.
Bedroom five is the penthouse - a bedroom/bathroom suite with a king bed and queen sleep sofa, wet bar, refrigerator, microwave, and seating area perched high above everything. It has wall of windows 16 ft wide for the best panoramic view of Gatlinburg and the Smokies anywhere. If there is a better suite in town, we would seriously like to see it! You may not notice the 65" TV over the wet bar as you stare at the view, but it is there just in case. :)
After a half mile, steep climb up to the house, you will find lots of flat parking. 4 to 6 cars is easy, but we have had up to a dozen work trucks squeezed in at once.
