Beautiful custom cabin on private lake w/ foosball, hot tub, & fireplace

"Peak A View" is a beautiful, custom-built, all wood, three-bedroom cabin that offers wooded views surrounded by nature, and a small onsite lake for catch & release fishing.

Located between Townsend and Wears Valley, this easy to access property is approximately five minutes from Townsend, 15 minutes from Pigeon Forge, and depending on route, 25-35 minutes from Gatlinburg. Paved roads will lead you all the way up to this beautiful cabin. This beautiful wooded retreat would be considered motorcycle and trailer friendly. There is comfortable parking for up to four vehicles.

This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath unit is three levels and sleeps 11 people. There are 16 steps to reach the main level of the cabin. The lower level is inaccessible except for a great deck that overlooks the pond. Upon entering the main level, you will find a living area with a stone stacked wood fireplace, queen sofa sleeper, loveseat, rocking chair, an additional chair, and a flat screen TV. And right outside, you'll have your very own hot tub overlooking the forest.

The floor plan is open to the loft and offers floor-to-ceiling windows that allow plenty of natural light and great views of the pond. There is a fully equipped kitchen with dining for 8 and additional bar seating for 4. There is also a Master King bedroom with a large walk-in closet and an adjoining bath with a walk-in shower only. The washer & dryer are also located on this level, along with a half bath. The large deck has two porch swings, patio furniture, a gas grill, and offers a beautiful view of the pond and a wonderful place to eat your meals.

In the upper loft area of the cabin, you will find two additional bedrooms. A private queen and a full in the open loft, each with large closets, and a shared full bath with a shower/tub combo. In the open area, which overlooks the living room, you will find a queen sofa sleeper, twin daybed, and a foosball table.

The lowest interior of the cabin is not accessible for guests. This area of the cabin can be rented by owners at any time.

If you are looking for a gorgeous all wood cabin that is both peaceful & serene and surrounded by nature, away from it all but close and convenient to all of the area attractions, "Peak A View" is the perfect place for you.

We loved “Peak a View” cabin. We plan on coming back....😁👍
Ali P. Dec 2020
Right in Townsend, not too far up the mountain but far enough to have great views! Our boys loved the cabin!
Jennifer T. Oct 2020
We loved this cabin! Had everything we needed, towels, pans, bowls, everything Had a problem with a leaky shower and management was out the next day and fixed it. The only downside is the carpenter bees, one night we counted over thirty bees.

The downstairs main room and master bedroom are terrific. The upstairs sleeping area has only one room with a door (the girls room) so if privacy is an issue you need to know that. Appliances are all great. Wonderful location for access to the park!
Aj T. Sep 2020
Cabin is great, driveway is treacherous, needs WiFi. Was not able to check out on time because of lack of WiFi.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, AJ. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestion about adding wifi to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

The cabin was great although the hot tub jets are not working properly and the inside jacuzzi tub didnt work at all. Be cautious letting children run around unattended because there is a bear that would visit us several times a day, the bear never offered to harm us but we knew not to feed it

Due to COVID 19. Summer vacation in the cabin is a perfect idea.The cabin was clean and beautiful. We saw a bear which honestly made our trip. The only thing we were not contacted was that there was no WiFi which was okay and the owners Slept there downstairs Which was a bit uncomfortable. Over all great home.
Philip R. Jul 2020
Had a great stay at this location. Very private with everything we needed. Would certainly like to come back again.

Sheena M. Jun 2020
Beautiful home but many issues. Tubs were dirty, floors were dirty, hot tub was dirty, deck was dirty outside tables were dirty and our grill was broken and it's mess was all over the deck. Called cs many times for no one to call me back. Left many emaiks with pictures upon arrival with no response. Horrible customer service and communication.

Cleanliness,solitude, beautiful cabin and setting and daily bear traffic,just becareful,they climb the decks
Tamie Y. May 2020
The management were quick to get back with us in every occassion of contact. Very clean, towels and wash cloths in every bathroom. Great TV reception, but no internet in this home.. and nice deck to stand out on. The shower in the bedroom needed to be enclosed for privacy and the garden tub was only allowed for the should be allowed as well. The jacuzzi on the bottom deck was not allowed for use either. We did see many black bears in Caves Cove and one crossing the road as we were leaving the cabin.

That is my first advice to anyone considering this stay. It was a test of wills and control for us (newlyweds). The cabin made a nice clean impression, when we finally made it inside. I was worried about the seating and furniture because of other reviews; after testing it, I could understand some statements, but it wasn't un bearable. My sister slept on one couch, and my parents watched tv from the other couch. No one complained about the comfort of the furniture. Although a little testy because of my OCD issue, it was a wonderfully memorable and peaceful experience with my family and new hubby. The driveway/parking area has a steep drop that doesn't reflect in the pics. Discovering that a night, in pitch black, was a bit scary. Follow Vacasa's driving directions, because it's an easy drive-by, after "you arrive." I'd like to return to enjoy the lake, and trekking in the area. Much of our time was in Townsend town. We did not use the hottub, which was at ground level (kind of out the way); All of our gatherings were at the second level deck, living room, kitchen (of course), and dining room. I'd come back here, don't regret the deciding on this cabin. It met all of our need.
Beverly M. May 2020
The cabin was beautifully placed and perfectly done for our family of 8. We had a Momma Bear and her baby (Maple and Molly) visit us every morning! The only cons were the jacuzzi tub in the master is not able to be used (very disappointed), the beds are hard and there is no wifi. Other than that it was perfect!

I normally don't pay to much attention to reviews until I had the worst stay ever. Couches were horrible. Springs broken, saggy sofa and nasty fabric. Hot tub was grimmy and the cover needed replaced. This place is in desperate need of updating in everyway. VRBO needs to be more involved making sure things are up to par...Shower curtains were soiled and the pic with the jetted tub is not for use. Also the heater kept turning off and on making a horrible racket all night. The ceiling fan needs replaced, I think it may be on it's last leg. Horrible place! Worst $500.00 iv ever wasted! Left the next day after paying for 2 nights. Directions off on GPS! So don't depend on that. Please, if you decide to make a bad choice and stay here... Go during the day so you can find it.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay, Kimber. We are sorry to read it was a disappointment for you. The owner is shutting this home down for the winter to do some updates, and all of your concerns will be handled at that time. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future.
Gerald B. Dec 2019
It had all the room we needed and a beautiful setting. The downside was that there was a trash bag in the woods from previous guest and bears had scattered the trash around and I cleaned it up.
Manager response:
We are happy that you enjoyed your home! We are sorry for the inconvenience of the trash. Please call our 24/7 Guest Services line in the future if you need assistance. We hope you will let us host you again soon!

I loved the seclusion and wildlife. Very relaxing! The home was comfortable and cozy. They had everything you would need for a home away from home. Towels, dishes, coffee pot, full kitchen, and a hot tub.

When I booked this house I knew from the very beginning that this was the house that I was looking for! It has everything you need! I will stay here next time I go to Gatlinburg for I recommended 💯%
Ronald B. Jul 2019
We loved everything, the location was perfect. Out of town by a couple of minutes but super close to the river and centrally located to get to Gatlinburg and pigeon forge with a short drive as well.
