This cabin exceeded our expectations. I can't say enough about the gorgeous view. Pictures are great, but seeing this view with your own eyes was unbelievable. The roads leading to the cabin were steep, but they were nice roads, and wide enough for two cars. The cabin was beautiful. Well equipped kitchen for those of us that like to cook. I can't speak for all the beds, but the master bed was very comfortable, and felt like a cloud. It is so nice to have such a beautiful cabin available for pets and their families. The owner (Helene) is great to work with. Excellent communication, with quick responses.
This cabin was remarkable! We have stayed in many cabins in the Smokies and Angel's Rest is the best by far. The view is perfection with gorgeous sunsets and an excellent vantage into Wears Valley. The property is lovely and well looked after and impeccably clean. The owners are responsive and friendly. The area is secluded and quiet, and we were comfortable and felt completely secure at all times. I can't say enough good about this place. We have already booked TWO WEEKS next year.
We loved Angels Rest. The view was the selling point. The house was beautiful, overall, and worked great for our family. It is a bit off the beaten path, a good 20 minutes away from Pigeon Forge, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet after a day of activity. My only suggestion: replace the chairs in theater room. They are in bad repair, which takes away from the appeal of that room.
This cabin was as advertised. The owners were very attentive, making sure we arrived ok, and all was good after we had a big thunderstorm. The location is very quiet, and the views were spectacular. However, we found it a little far from the trails in the park and the entertainment in Pigeon Forge and Gaitlinburg. We were traveling with teens that wanted to be closer to some of the action, instead of driving 20+ minutes, we didn't do enough research on the area. Due to the storms, which no one could help/predict, the entrance to the Smoky Mountains state park closest to the cabin was closed for a day, so we had to drive 45 minutes to get inside the park. So, if you are coming for peace and quiet with great views, than this is the place for you. The road leading up to the cabin is VERY steep. I would not suggest taking a dog with you to this cabin, there is not much green space, and cannot walk them on the road due to the steepness of it. The cabin itself was nice but showed some age - the seats in the home theatre need new covering and the mattress on the guest bed sunk to one side. But all in all, this cabin was very nice and no real complaints.
Can there be any place on earth as peaceful and refreshing as Angel's Rest? Our family of seven enjoyed the beautiful views every day--breathtaking! Each night we enjoyed the fire pit under the starry skies. A beautifully appointed and spacious cabin, comfortable beds, lovely kitchen, gorgeous decks, valley views, and very attentive hosts, makes Angel's Rest on the top of our list for future get-aways.
We rented this cabin for a much needed girls weekend. There were 5 of us and we had plenty of room; it was spacious yet cozy at the same time. The cabin was very clean. We loved the theater area downstairs and the deck was awesome! Helene was so nice and accommodating. I would definitely rent this cabin again.
This was our second year staying at Angels Rest, and it just gets better every year. We love the view and the cabin is perfectly equipped with everything you need, it's beautifully decorated and super cozy. We refuse to stay anywhere else when traveling to the Smokies. This year it snowed several inches while we were there. The owners were very attentive, checking in on us to ensure we had everything we needed and to be sure we were safe traveling on the icy roads. The neighbors were also very attentive and helpful.
If you're planning the perfect mountain vacation for your family, look no more! This cabin checks all of the boxes. Just don't take my week, because I'll be back!
