Best vacation rental we have ever stayed at. Incomparable views, amazing master bedroom and kitchen, lovely decor. Easy drive to GSM National Park. Would absolutely stay here again. The lane to get to the home is a challenge, we were fine with 4WD in the summer but I would caution those that don't have a 4WD vehicle. Arrive during daylight hours. Otherwise highly recommend.

Cabin was spacious and comfortable. Beautiful kitchen and dining area. Sleeps six, but perfect for two couples. Bed and baths on separate floors. Views are amazing. Great screened in porch.

The Rocky Gap cabin was an amazing experience in the Smokey Mountains. Everything that you could need was provided in the cabin and this made it feel like home. The cabin was spacious and very well maintained. Every room was neat and clean. The amenities were great, but the best part was the view of the mountains. We will definitely be returning to experience it all over again.

We have stayed at Rocky Gap several times over the last ten years. Best views of the mountains from every room. So grateful that the owner shares this beautiful home.

My family stayed at the Rocky Gap Cabin for three nights. This is a great log cabin with many unique furnishings that add to the Cabin experience. The view in the photos was even better than the photos. Sitting on one of the deck areas or porch one can see into Tenn. If you like seclusion this is the Cabin for you. We did not see anyone else during our stay. There are no neighbors visible from this Cabin. It was extremely quiet except for nature. The kitchen was well appointed with everything you will need to cook. We have rented several houses and this one had the best dishes, utensils, etc. than all the others. All the beds were comfortable with nice linens. Plenty of towels in the bathrooms and plenty of hot water with separate hot water heaters in each bathrooms which sped up the mornings. It was chilly the days we were there and the three fireplaces warmed up the rooms fast. It is a lot cooler up on top of the mountain at this Cabin than in Franklin and Cherokee. We had no trouble navigating the steep drive with both a 4WD and FWD, just keep moving. We found plenty of places for our daily walk exploring cleared lots for sale nearby, the adjoining national Forrest or climbing the drive. Overall a great place to stay that I highly recommend.

Thank you for sharing your home. It was a perfect getaway, and the views were breath-taking to wake up to. Very well kept. Highly recommend 4 wheel drive for the driveway as noted in the footnotes prior to booking! Well worth the drive.
