Angela wrote... "This place has the most amazing view of pigeon forge. The roads to get to it however could use a 4x4 vehicle. The cabin was very spacious and it was nice to have an ensuite in every room. I wish we could've spent our entire vacation here but due to some unforeseen circumstances, our time here was cut short. Thankfully Mark understood and communicated very effectively at a solution. Thanks for everything. I hope to stay here in the future."
Julie... "The cabin was beautiful. Exactly what we wanted, on top of the mountain and secluded. Mark and Chris were very accommodating and had great communication. The cabin was cozy and fit all 8 of us perfectly."
Dean... "Great house and location to rent for a getaway with the family or any group!"
Catherine... "We loved our stay at Mountain Escape home. Check-in and check-out were straightforward. The house is clean and the decks look out on miles and miles of trees. Mountain roads have steep inclines and a couple of blind corners. Arrive during daylight hours and use Waze! The Wifi was strong and reliable - another huge plus for our group. We received immediate help for a question we had which was greatly appreciated."
Cristina... "We just came back from visiting Mark’s mountain escape and we loved it! It was a total of 12 of us and there was more than enough room for everyone. The kids kept busy playing pool and the arcade game in the basement. We were hoping to see a bear but maybe next time we’ll get lucky! The ride up there is definitely not for the faint at heart especially when the roads are wet. If we visit again we are definitely taking a 4*4 vehicle because it would have made our trip up the mountain less scary for the kids. The view from the decks is amazing and definitely worth the drive up. The cabin has everything you need from pots and pans to extra towels if you happen to forget yours back home. Thank you for having such a wonderful place for families to come together and create memories that will last a lifetime. The morning of checkout no one wanted to leave, that’s how amazing the cabin is!"
Michael... "So I want to start off with a disclaimer...I would have rated this house a 4.75 but didn't have the option to do so. There are so many wonderful things about this house, and the hosts-Mark & Chris were easy to reach and very kind and helpful. We had a couple of things that went wrong and were able to reach out immediately and get a quick resolution to our issues. The home is comfy, cozy, well-appointed, and provided more than enough space & amenities for 4 adults and 5 teens (ages 14-18). The views off of the back decks were amazing! We caught so many sunset pics off of those decks...incredible. The kids absolutely loved the downstairs-they played pool, video games and watched movies until all hours of the morning every night after dinner. We cooked every night in the well-appointed kitchen and there was plenty of space for all 9 of us to enjoy dinner together. The washer & dryer were convenient-especially after returning from a white water rafting trip. Overall, this is an amazing home that offers all you need for a self-sufficient getaway. If you're looking for an amazing experience in the mountains, and want to be close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, you can't miss with this incredible property. Minor issues do not take away from the amazing time we spent at Chris & Mark's incredible home in the mountains!!! I highly recommend this house!!"
Jeffrey... "Drive to the cabin is very entertaining at night. Excellent views. Worth the drive. Very conveniently located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Had a few Bear visits out front of the cabin. Especially morning time. Very accommodating hosts. All in all, had a wonderful time."
Johnathan... "If you’re looking for the best views in the area this is the place. Perched high on the mountain you can truly take in what the Smokey mountains have to offer. Easy to continue your vacation after a day enjoying the TN area hiking or rafting with a fantastic game/media room and balcony off each bedroom."
Ryan... "Beautiful location right in the middle of the action. Fireworks visible from deck throughout the week was a real treat!"
Misty ... "This cabin has everything you could possibly need. It was perfect! Mark was very helpful in answering all my questions so quickly. I could not have asked for a better experience."
Ryan P... "Perfect place for a large group of people looking to explore Gatlinburg or go into the national park. No Uber/Lyft in the area but you can easily find cab companies that will take you into town if you don’t want to drive. We went on several hikes that took about 30-40 mins to get to. We would come back again just for the views!"
Frederick... "Bears and other wildlife are in the area. A great time was had by my family. No one can not like the view."
Tracey... "We loved everything about this cabin. The location was perfect and very private, with plenty of room for parking our four cars. The view is absolutely spectacular!"
Sam... "This place is spectacular. Great accommodation for a large group. Endless amounts of entertainment space throughout the cabin."
Jennifer... "Absolutely stunning & beautiful location. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ If I had thought about how high up a mountain one had to be to get the amazing balcony views, then we might not have stayed here and thus not had an incredible family trip. Due to 3 of 8 in our group having a fear of heights... With that being said, Mountain Escape hosted four generations of my family during a once-in-a-lifetime week+ vacation. Sitting in rocking chairs on the balcony around the firepit will be long remembered as a special time for all of us. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Highly recommend. Watching movies, playing fuse ball & pool, teaching my grandson how to play pac-man... Sooo many memories were made. Thank you."
Joy... "The home is gorgeous and well furnished with everything you need. The views are absolutely stunning both day and night. Be careful on the drive up because it’s on the top of the mountain but well worth it!"
Marcie... "WOW - what a view and the house is laid out perfect... Hot Tub was nice after our days out exploring, and the beds were very comfy. The homeowner was so attentive and we could not have wished for a better trip.. Thank you!! "
June... "This mountainside cabin is absolutely stunning. Our group of 7 loved everything about it. We were with another group of friends who rented within the Skyharbor Association down below and they were sadly disappointed with the view (none at all) and size of living space. We hosted a happy hour one afternoon for the other half of our group and all were just as impressed and in awe as we all were. I'm sure there will be future rentals here booked from our combined group and referrals that we will all make. While the narrow road to reach the cabin is a nail-biter, the views are worth every gray hair Our hosts thought of EVERYTHING! Hairdryers in every KING suite. Soft, luxurious, absorbent bath towels, enough place settings for about 16 couples, plenty of parking, game room which was awesome for football viewing. Electric fireplace, private full bath, TV and private balcony in each of the 4 KING SUITES. You will NOT be disappointed if you rent this gorgeous home! Added bonus, we were able to see a momma bear and her 2 cubs right from the front of the cabin heading to the last cabin on the road. #tripcomplete Thank you for sharing your outstanding home with our group from Rochester, NY."
Iyesha... "We were so excited to have our annual couples trip at this home. The pictures are amazing but don't do the home justice. Our angst about the steep and curving roads up to the top of the mountain was quickly assuaged by the coziness of the home and spectacular views. We stayed the first week of November. You get a different view every hour in the morning and the city comes to life at night. We never left the cabin thanks to Instacart!"
Katey... "We had a great time with family celebrating my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary! The cabin was the perfect location! Plenty of space for 7 adults. Each of the upstairs bedrooms has its own walkout, with rocking chairs, to enjoy coffee or beverages at night! The bedrooms each have their own bathrooms which is nice and very convenient. Mark was a very responsive host and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend staying at this cabin!"
Violeta... "I can't say enough about this place. The scenery is amazing, OMG. The communication with Mark and Chris is outstanding. Every time I emailed them they emailed back right away. When we arrived earlier than we expected from Florida I emailed them, they responded right away and we were able to get into the cabin a little earlier than our check-in time. The cabin was fully equipped. We love to cook and had a party of 12 people and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need. If you are planning on traveling with a large party this is definitely the cabin to come to!!! Thank you for the amazing stay!!!"
Bob... "Beautiful property with stunning views! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Decks, rocking chairs, pool, and foosball tables - something for everyone!"
Jessi... "Booked for a family vacation of 8 people & we all fit comfortably! The place is BEAUTIFUL with an amazing view. The roads to get up there are quite steep & windy so be careful & drive slow. The view is worth the climb😍 The cabin is stocked full of everything you should need from extra blankets, board games to a fully stocked kitchen & spices for cooking. We were happy with the location as we were in the middle of Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge so it wasn’t a long drive to any of the places we went to. Sad to say we didn’t see any bears or wildlife during our stay but there’s always next time. Definitely would recommend a stay here & would love to come back!"
Rendy... "Great cabin! The location is amazing and the views were stunning! My family and I got snowed in for a couple of days and we think that made it even better! We truly enjoyed our stay. We’ve saved the cabin on our favorites lists and plan to return again for another family vacation!"
John and Carrie... "Awesome house with awesome views. Mark was awesome and very responsive. Would definitely recommend them! Arcade game brought back a lot of younger year memories playing Frogger and Pac-Man."
Koralys... "The home was incredible !!! Everything about the home was perfect. It's quite a drive to the residence but worth It, the view of the mountain lines from the balconies was breathtaking. Near enough Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge but far enough to enjoy the mountain top views. Mark was very accommodating, even when we arrived a couple of hours early from our drive from Miami. He responded almost instantaneously to my messages. I would highly recommend this place. Thank you Mark !!!?
