"BEST CABIN in Gatlinburg!!! ... The owner is communicative, friendly, and concerned that you experience the best. ... The location is so spot on. It is secluded, yet Gatlinburg is 5 minutes OR LESS, Pigeon Forge is less 15 minutes or less. The view is awesome and you can see the city lights, yet still get that nice 'away from everything' feeling. ... Our group will be using this place again, and we have yet to do that because we hadn't found a place we enjoyed this much." - Libby B. (Sep 2016)

"This property had it all. You couldn't ask for a better central location and the view is in the name, Sensational! ...  You can tell that the owners take pride in their mountain getaway and it shows throughout the entire guest experience. I would highly recommend this property and we will definitely stay here again!" - Jennifer C (Nov 2016)

"We absolutely loved staying in Sensational View. Just after arriving we were welcomed, as we looked out the window at the view, by a huge, beautiful black bear walking up the ridge. ... Jay is great and the communication with him is by far the best we've had in all the years we have been coming to Gatlinburg. He helped us in any and every way he possibly could and always responded immediately to any questions we had." - Tammy P. (Oct 2016)

"The accommodations were fantastic with plenty of hotel-like amenities and extra personal and at-home feeling touches to make our anniversary trip very special." - Vickie M. (Oct 2016)

"This was our first trip to the Smoky Mountains and I can't imagine a better place to stay. It was awesome. The owners were easy to contact and everything was ready to go upon arrival. The view was Sensational. It was hard to leave the deck, especially at night. And the location is perfect, in my opinion. It feels like you are secluded, but Gatlinburg is just minutes away. We definitely will be planning another trip to the Smoky Mountains. Thank you so much..." - Kerry B. (Jul 2016)

Favorite Embracing View Guest Reviews

"We've now stayed in both of Jay and Amy's vacation rental homes. After our first stay, we knew there wouldn't be another option that would come close to the quality of the homes as well as amazing attentiveness of the Hopmans. Embracing View has ample amenities, ambiance in spades, and the views (yes plural) OMG! We've decided next time we go, we are staying longer." - Nanette P. (Nov 2017)

"We were blown away by the view from the moment we stepped out of our cars. It was our first trip to the Smokies and I think we may be spoiled by this view." - Anita A. (Nov 2017)

"I have rented at least 8 mountain cabins in GA, TN & NC over the last 10 years. This was by far the cleanest, well furnished and the best owner to deal with." - Kip H. (Oct 2017)

"They anticipated our every need for every aspect of the visit, including ways to avoid traffic, things to do, where to get groceries; you name it. They provided us with the cleanest cabin I've ever stayed in with updated appliances, furniture and electronic equipment." - Melanie L. (Oct 2017)

"My husband and I have been vacationing in the area for over 10 years. We have visited many different cabins in many different areas, never one twice. EMBRACING VIEW is the only cabin in which we would repeat our stay. Absolutely exquisite panoramic visuals, deluxe accommodations down to the quality of the bed linen texture, and thorough attentiveness from the owner, Jay, whose enthusiasm for our experience was obviously paramount. You will have to search far and wide to find a serene mountain paradise that indulges the senses as this gem does...we have done all of the footwork for you, look no farther." - Kyla C. (Oct 2017)
