Above the Rest Featured Gatlinburg Cabin

Now here’s a comfortable cabin, made just for hanging out in. It’s Above the Rest, a 1-bedroom cabin on the edge of Gatlinburg, tucked away in gentle terrain with trees all around and also magnificent views of the Smoky Mountains.


Above the Rest is a perfect honeymoon or romantic getaway for a couple, but it sleeps 4 people in comfort, with 2 full bathrooms and showers, a queen sleeper downstairs in the living area, and king bedroom upstairs, with Jacuzzi and private deck.

Two couples or a small family can easily share this space, with plenty of areas to hang out separately or together. Splitting the cost by sharing a cabin is where the true savings of this form of accommodation is most apparent. And the living is easy compared with a hotel, a home away from home, with all the comforts, real meals, and room to move around or just relax.

Above the Rest is a cabin with everything right where you want it. Where do you want to explore first? Which of the 3 deck areas? How about the one in back, with the hot tub at one end, and the gas fireplace nook at the other end? And the views of the mountain skyline, to gaze at from the rocking chairs, or the hot tub, or the swing around the corner.


Is it time to eat yet? The open kitchen and 4-person dining area is inside. Meanwhile outdoors, there’s the charcoal grill in the patio area by the front porch, and with the side deck and picnic table waiting for the gang to get together over a bite of food.

Inside the cabin, throw the dishes in the dishwasher, and it’s more fun in your own pool hall with-a-view, and more easy time in the living area, with music, a movie, cable TV, WiFi, or just sitting round the fireplace.


The upstairs master suite is in communication with the downstairs, but its own world with lots of windows, and lots of Smoky Mountains. The Jacuzzi shares the view as easily as the bed or the armchair. With the hot tub downstairs, you could stay wet all weekend if you wanted and never miss a view of the mountains.

Above the Rest is in a great location for running into town, a few minute’s drive along Roaring Fork Road to Parkway. Although the roads are pretty easy, winter is still the mountains and a 4-wheel drive vehicle is sometimes recommended for these roads. Be sure to call us (24/7 at 855-91-SMOKY) to check when you book.

About Dusty Camp

I moved to the Smoky Mountains a few years ago from Alabama - a big change, but one I'm glad I made. I like meeting all the different types of people who visit here, and getting to know a little bit about them. I love to watch all the wildlife throughout Cades Cove, but most of all I like winter, waking up to see everything covered in snow and icicles.
