What A View

*** Sorry, this cabin is no longer available for rentals ***

Enjoy incredible views of the mountains with 19 of your friends and family in this luxury cabin just 5 minutes from Downtown Gatlinburg.

If you are looking for straight-on, unobstructed Views of Mt LeConte that are so close that you feel you cant get much closer - then this is the cabin for you. This cabin is built on the first mountain ridge facing Mt LeConte, you would be hard pressed to find a ridge, with a view, that is closer. Each bedroom, the dinning area, and the loft face Mt LeConte. Extra effort was put into building a level elevated concrete parking deck adjacent to this cabin. Ample level parking is difficult to find with view cabins (almost all view cabins are built on a ridge). Cabin also has an overflow parking area across the street. Have an even larger group? Rent the companion 7 BR cabin Pinnacle Peak next door.

    "Outstanding View!!"

    We only had three nights in this lovely cabin, and were so busy in the towns trying to get in as many sights as possible. So our only complaint was we didn't get to just relax in the cabin and take in all the beautiful scenery as much as we would of liked to. The cabin was perfect for our family ten.

    "A Great Escape from Home!!"

    Would definitely rent from Elk Springs again! The location was wonderful, the views of the mountains were amazing, the cabin was very well kept. We had a slight problem with the WiFi when we arrived & they had sent someone out to fix it within 20 minutes of being there. With ten of us there, there was soooo much room for everybody! A great time was had by all. Thank You for everything!

    "Great cabin, but has 4 king beds"

    Our cabin was beautiful & did the trick for our lovely friend's bachelorette party. Our only 2 complaints (while quite relevant ones) are that they were 4 king beds, not 5, & several of us took breathtakingly, freezing showers :(

    "Cold water but overall a Great Stay"

    Our group had a great time; 3 things that I would try to improve on, add or change:
    1)Needs a snow shovel for winter stay
    2)Needs a entrance matt
    3)The hot water heater is not adequate for this size house.

    Enjoyed the location and cabin, having to leave two days early due to the weather moving in was not expected and a bit of a let down.

    We had a family reunion of 17 people, ranging from ages 1 - 75. We were all very comfortable and had our privacy, when desired. The kitchen is great for many people cooking.

    ""What a view" lives up to its name."

    The What a view chalet was everything I expected and more. It is centrally located and easy to find. There are some steep sharp turns to get to the chalet but it was well worth it for the view.

    Manager Response:

    Thank you for sharing your positive feedback with us, Cynthia! You will be hard pressed to find a road here in the mountains that doesn't have steep, sharp turns. But, you are so right, the view at the top is so worth it! We appreciate your business and hope you will return again soon.

    "What A View is Everything It Says"

    We had a group of 13 ladies in What A View cabin for a two night girls' getaway. It was perfect for our needs, i.e. plenty of room for all to relax and enjoy the beautiful autumn scenery off the balconies. The kitchen was very well supplied (could have used a bigger refrigerator). The bedrooms and baths are huge. We did experience an invasion of Lady Bugs in the lower bedrooms the last night. According to the cabin info, Lady Bugs are not unusual there but they were annoying. Overall this is a great cabin for a large group. The road going up there is steep but not as bad as many I have encountered, and Gatlinburg is very convenient along with groceries, etc. I would definitely pick What A View again.

    Manager Response:

    We are very pleased to hear that you and the other ladies in your group had a very nice stay at What A View! Experiencing the Fall colors in the Smokies is amazing, especially from a cabin with great views! We are sorry about the lady bugs. The warm weather brought them out of hiding and they can be very annoying. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and we hope to have you as repeat guests in the near future!

    "Great stay in a beautiful cabin!"

    Came to Gatlinburg for a bachelor party and couldn't have been more impressed with the cabin. There was enough sleeping for all of us, and more. The cabin was in immaculate shape when we arrived and had more than enough amenities to allow us to be able to cook our own food and enjoy ourselves, thoroughly. The location was great because it gave a beautiful view of the mountains, but was only a mile away from downtown Gatlinburg. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to Gatlinburg for a large party!

    ""Great Vacation""

    This was our second visit to "What A View". As in the past, our family of 10 enjoyed the beautiful scenery, a well maintained cabin, the close proximity to attractions, and excellent customer service from the management company.

    "Great place to stay with a large group!"

    Great cabin! Very comfortable, clean, cozy. Great views and windows. Hot tub was nice. Water heat/pressure was good. A bit low-stocked when it comes to cookware (not a lot of pots/pans). Also, the road to the cabin is quite steep, and a well-maintained vehicle is recommended.

    "What a View Review"

    What a View is the perfect cabin for families. The location can't be beat. It is close to town and amenities but tucked away in the mountains with a glorious view. We had plenty of room to relax, play games, play pool and enjoy the hot tub. We cooked many meals in the cabin and were surprised by how well stocked the kitchen is.
    Upon leaving we had an issue with the door lock. We called and even on a Sunday morning received prompt assistance from the management. I was especially impressed we received a phone call early in our stay to make sure we were pleased with the cabin.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this cabin and Elk Springs Resort. We plan to stay with them on all of our future Gatlinburg vacations.

    "What a View Cabin: A Excellent Cabin!!!"

    A group of 10 of us stayed here and it was a wonderful cabin! Very clean with all amenities included. It is a luxury cabin with a great view of Gatlinburg's mountains. I recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay somewhere nice and relaxing!

    "A home away from home"

    The view really is breathtaking. The open floor plan is great for large groups. We had a lot of young children so we had to be mindful of the stairs. The location can't be beat when it comes to going into town and convenience. But the road up the hill is quite steep. I guess that's the price you pay for the view. Overall our group had a fantastic time and would recommend this cabin to anyone.

    "Can't Get Any Better Than This"

    "What A View" exceeded all of our expectations. The cabin was clean, well stocked, and very spacious. The floor plan allowed all 3 families sleeping quarters on seperate floors, and the huge main floor was our gathering place. The location was close to downtown Gatlinburg, yet we still felt that we were in the middle of a forest. The rocking chairs on the balconies beconed us to relax and enjoy the magnificent scenery. The only item that I would change would be to locate the grill on the same side of the street as the cabin and not across the street.

    "A happy experience in What a View."

    We rented this cabin "What a View" when we decided to go to the great smoky mountain. It's a right decision. We are very satisfied with it. It's located in a hill and very clean. We could check in and check out with my telephone. It's very convenient.
