We have stayed in Gatlinburg many times throughout the last 20 years. We are now without at home children so do not need a huge cabin. My husband is a freak about the hot tub being on a deck that has no access by an outside stairway, ground level, or a wrap around deck. We had bears confront us one visit while loading the car very early. Although there was no trouble, it is now an issue. Like to view them from a longer distance than walking towards you. Would also love a fabulous view.
