Welcome To Our Vacation Cabin …
Your Home Away Home…in the Smoky Mountains
Hi, We’re the Armstrong Family and Thank you for your interest in staying at our Vacation Home “An Incredible View.” I have been traveling with my family to Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains for over 30 years. But my husband has been going for his entire life, in fact he learned to walk (took his first steps) in a hotel that is still welcoming families, formerly the Alpine Lodge, behind the Ober Tram Station on River Road.
We knew early on we wanted to spend part of our retirement in Gatlinburg. In 2011, the time was finally right to buy a cabin. It was easy to focus our search…we wanted to live in Chalet Village, Gatlinburg because that area borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on three sides and has the most bear visitors. It has all the conveniences of living in the city limits: fire/police protection, city water AND they will plow the roads to our driveway every time it snows. Our other requirements were: complete log construction (no drywall), privacy from other homes/rentals and most importantly “what all of you want too”…VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS.
As soon as we walked through the doors of “An Incredible View,” we knew immediately we had found our dream home. It gave us everything we wanted and more: All window facade with 360* views to see Mt. LeConte, Mt. Harrison, entire City of Gatlinburg and in the winter Pigeon Forge and Sevierville, while standing INSIDE the cabin.
We just absolutely love being there, in fact we calculated a few weeks ago that we had driven the 276 one-way miles to Gatlinburg from our home in Louisville, Kentucky for over 350 visits since we got married in 1987. Our friends ask, WHAT keeps us going back so often?…. It’s really easy to answer. Where can you go that is absolutely different EVERY TIME. Mother Nature changes the scenery daily. We see and experience something new and wonderful every trip whether it’s Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter.
We know the Gatlinburg area and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park inside and out, whether you are interested in hiking, shopping, sightseeing or relaxing, we can help you plan out a memorable trip. We want you and your families/friends to love it as much as we do….Looking forward to helping you plan your vacation getaway to the Smokies!!!
