Had a wonderful time everything was great. The cabin is beautiful and the view was awesome. Convenient to everything. Quite neighborhood. Jackie was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Only complaint is that the week went by way too fast! Hope to stay here again in the future.

Owner's reply: Larry and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to hear from you again when planning your next visit.

“Loved the View”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2016

We enjoyed our stay at Awesome view. The view is everything that is expected and more. Loved waking up in the morning and coming back to the cabin after a long day exploring to relax in the cabin and take in the view. We had a few issues with the cleaning of the cabin when we first arrived but I was able to get in touch with Jackie the owner who was more than willing to have the cleaning service come back out. We understood that the owners have an outside agency that they use and trust to make sure the cabin is ready for the next guest. We know that this is something that the owners have no control of when renting the cabin out. But I must say that I loved how easy it was to get in touch with Jackie and discuss our concerns and that without hesitation she was willing to do what she could from another state to resolve it. We were beyond thankful that Jackie allowed us to bring our 3 dogs to the cabin with us. We always vacation with them and they loved laying on the deck overlooking the view while we had our coffee each morning. I was disappointed that the Smokey Mountains only have one trail in Tenn that dogs are allowed to hike -- as we hike often with our dogs. I would highly recommend Awesome View cabin!

Owner's reply: Thank you for choosing our cabin, Awesome View. The view is why we bought the cabin in the first place. Larry and I try to make sure that the cabin is clean and everything is in working order for our guests. Dana is right that it is hard to live in Florida and must depend on a local cleaning agency to maintain everything. Sometimes there are issues but I will do my best to address them and correct them if at all possible. Your pets are welcome. We ask however we expect they be well-behaved.

We had a wonderful weekend at this cabin and the view was spectacular. Jackie and Larry Watts were very kind and friendly hosts. This site was great and easy to find just what we were looking for.

“Awesome View”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2016

The cabin was nice. Great view!! The only complaints I have are fixable. Whoever cleans their cabin does not do a very good job. The bathroom was still dirty, toothpaste all over the sink and hair all around the sink. The glass table tops in the living room had glass rings all on them where people put their glasses. The king bed upstairs actually slopped in the middle. The floors were dirty. And the hot tub was not usable. That was very disappointing because we booked the cabin because it had one and we were looking forward to using it. I probably will not rent this one again.

Owner's reply: Nancy, I apologize for the cleanliness issues you had. I would have called our cleaning company owner and would have gotten everything corrected for you if you had called me. I pride myself in making every effort possible to making our guest's experience a positive one. Again, I apologize. Jackie and Larry

Awesome View is everything the owners state. I spent every morning we were there on the deck watching the sunrise...beautiful and peaceful! Check in and out is simple..no need to go to an office. There were 5 adults in our group and we had plenty of room! This cabin is located close to everything you want to do and the roads to the cabin are good. Thank you Jackie for allowing us to use your home and bring our dog, too! He even made a couple of friends while there! Hopefully we will be back!!

Owner's reply: Lynne, Larry and I are pleased to hear that your family had a great time! We love sharing our awesome view with others. Hope to hear from you again. Blessings to you. Jackie and Larry

First time to Tenn. Very pleasant stay and awesome view, ideal place to stay as the cabin is located near many attractions. The description of cabin was exactly. Would love to return next year and book this cabin again as there is so much to enjoy in that area and this cabin made us feel right at home. Jackie, thank you for addressing our minor hiccup, which was beyond your control.

Owner's reply: Thank you! Larry and I look forward to hearing from you in the future. We do try to represent our property as honestly as we know how. The pictures were taken with my regular camera, NO wide angle lens were used as many cabin management companies use to make their cabins appear more spacious and bigger. Awesome view does have the VIEW if that is a must for you.

We recently stayed at AWESOME VIEW and it was one of the best vacations we had and lives up to its name. The cabin is located in a perfect spot! It is within minutes of everything you want to do, but away from the traffic. We visited the mountains, Dollywood, and Gatlinburg and all locations were within 15 minutes of the home. The house is conveniently located near many mountain coasters (great for the kids), restaurants, and two supermarkets. The cabin is beautiful and very spacious. It had two large bedrooms with closets, two bathrooms, two living rooms one upstairs and one down (great for the kids to relax in), as well as bunk beds. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you need to save money cooking in.The jacuzzi is in the a perfect spot to have a glass of wine and enjoy the views. The views are breathtaking! You can see the mountains, as well as fireworks from Dollywood. You also have the privacy you need when you go on vacation. The best part is that they are dog friendly! A wonderful cabin to stay in. Looking forward to planning my next trip!

Owner's reply: Thank you, Joyce. Larry and I are so glad you enjoyed your stay. You are welcome at our cabin any time! Because of guests such as yourself, we can offer our home to others. We love the area and want to share while we cannot enjoy it ourselves. Hope to hear from you soon!

Awesome View was just as the name implies! We were definitely not disappointed! Very easy to get to, very clean and comfortable and very close to everything! The dogs even loved it! I was hoping to get to see some snow, but maybe next time! Thank you, Jackie, for letting us stay. Everything was perfect!!

Owner's reply: Kristy, Larry and I are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Awesome View. Maybe you will get some snow on your next trip. Have a wonderful year. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Jackie

Reviewed 25 Sep 2015

One of the reasons I chose this cabin was due to it being pet friendly. We have 4 small dogs and we thought this would be a good mini vacation to see how the dogs would do. In the end we decided to only take two of our dogs. Our stay was perfect, the view was awesome, very private and quite, yet close to everything. I found the cabin to be exceptionally clean and comfortable. We definitely will plan staying again in the near future, perhaps even taking all of my babies.
