OUR CABIN IS THOROUGHLY SANITIZED! We use hospital-grade sanitizers to clean ALL surfaces, switches, remote controls, handles, and knobs! All bedding is washed and sanitized between guests as well.

We have installed a new electric fireplace in the bedroom as well, and a mini-fridge/freezer. Best of all, we've put in a beautiful new wet bar in the bedroom. The bed linens are all brand new, quality log cabin-style quilts and pillows. Both TV's, upstairs and down, are modern, 43" and 50" flat screen HD smart TV's with cable. The kitchen is fully-equipped with all new dishes, pots & pans, and utensils, as well as a new Keurig coffee maker and new blender! We have also installed a new island in the kitchen! All decor in our Pearly Gates cabin is new Smoky Mountain log cabin-style decor. Last, but not least, we have built a new fire pit outside for those romantic nights by the fire, under the stars! Make your reservations now to experience the newness of our beautiful, well-maintained log cabin in the Smokies! Send me a message with any questions you may have!
As soon as you walk into the cabin, your breath will be taken away by the magnificence of the mountain views through the huge windows in the living room, which lead to the private upper deck where you can read a book or snooze in the comfy hammock . . . or even have a romantic outdoor meal on the new bar-height, log-style pub table! We also built a new bar on the deck so you can choose where you want to sit and eat or have drinks. The sun sets on this fabulous view, too, so that's just another plus for a romantic evening outside!
The tall stacked stone fireplace sets the perfect tone for a romantic evening by the fire. It has an electric insert so that you can enjoy the romantic ambiance with the touch of a button.
The kitchen, of course, is fully-equipped with everything (new) you'll need to prepare meals or bake cookies! We have installed a new island in the kitchen! The glass-top stove and oven are full-size. You have a dishwasher to make cleanup a snap. Keep all your perishable groceries in the full-size refrigerator, where you'll find a few complimentary drinks to get you started. We provide coffee filters, paper towels, paired plates, trash bags, and dish soap. And don't worry . . . we also provide you with a cork screw to open that celebratory bottle of wine!
Between the kitchen and living area is a full bathroom with a tub/shower combo. Hand soap, toilet paper, shampoo, and plush towels are provided for our guests.
Head down the spiral stairway to the bedroom where you'll find a NEW luxury king-size bed with new luxury linens and pillows (totally bed bug-proof), a beautiful new wet bar, and another fireplace! Keep your drinks close with the mini fridge/freezer downstairs, too! Lots of windows surround this room as well, so you won't miss a beat as the views of the Smokies are constantly changing almost every minute!
Walk out the glass door to the private lower deck, where you can soak in the gorgeous blue hot tub under the stars, especially after a strenuous day of hiking in the Smoky Mountain National Park! (Sometimes it's nice to turn off the jets in the hot tub just to listen to the surrounding forest. The hooting owls are the coolest!) We provide mood lighting on both decks, and there are also colorful LED lights inside the hot tub. There are also two rocking chairs on this deck, and a small log table. We are very particular about cleaning the hot tub between guests, so you do not have to worry about indulging in a soak!
You can listen to your own music via the cabin's wi-fi signal through the speakers provided on both decks, as well as inside.
The full bath downstairs has a large walk-in shower. Hand soap, shampoo, and plush towels are also provided in this bathroom. For your convenience, there is also a blow dryer.
A full-size washer and dryer are also on the lower level. Laundry soap provided as well!
When you're ready to venture out to see what the area has to offer, you'll be delighted to have so many unique options! The nearest entrance to the GSMNP (Great Smoky Mountain National Park) is only 5.5 miles away for just cruising through via car/bike. Explore the many hiking trails with various levels of difficulty. Check out the national park website for locations of all the waterfalls in the GSMNP (some you can even drive to if you don't want to hike). You can even go horseback riding in the Smokies!
You can shop at the famous Tanger Outlet Mall, as well as all the other shopping venues in Wears Valley, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg! You could literally shop till you drop! Don't forget the moonshine!
Other activities include skiing, fishing, white-water rafting, zip-lines, zorbs, Dollywood, Splash Country, mountain coasters, sky-lifts, and fine dining . . . just to name a few! Coupons for these activities are available almost everywhere in these areas, but we will leave some for you on the kitchen table.
That's quite a bit of adventure! But then you get to go back to the Pearly Gates and unwind and get a hot soak in . . . every day!
By the way, all roads to this cabin are paved, as well as the driveway, and the driveway is wide enough for a vehicle plus a trailer or motorcycle.

Incredible views that are to die for, and it’s by far the cleanest Airbnb, hotel, etc. I’ve ever stayed in. The cabin felt like it’s own private sanctuary, so it was perfect for a mid pandemic get away. We were able to cook every meal there, the kitchen has plenty of utensils and cooking supplies to create any meal you want. It’s one of those places where you get just a little sad the second you walk in because you’re only there for a few days; you’ll never want to leave! At the end of our first full day while sitting by the fire pit we ended up booking our next trip back to the cabin. It is perfect for a quiet couples getaway.
While you have the safety of being close to other cabins you’re also far enough away to feel secluded. The sun sets over the valley that the front deck faces. So while you’re eating breakfast the valley is lit with a cast of beautiful morning sun and your dinner get the beautiful shadows of a mountainside sunset. The amenities were all very clean and in working order. The hot tub was perfect, even on summer nights. As world travelers we stay a lot of places and have experienced some incredible views. But, this Airbnb easily ranks at the top of views we have seen. We experienced our first encounters with black bears here! Although they seemed curious they kept their distances and we gave them plenty! The hosts are amazing. If you’re on the fence... do yourself a favor and just book a very memorable stay.
This cabin is clean, cozy, relaxing, and inviting, and the view is every bit as spectacular as you think it will be. CP & Rachel were excellent hosts, and we felt nothing but at home in the cabin. We barely left the cabin except to hike in the national park, because we so desperately needed the rest and that cabin was so dang relaxing to just hang out in. I highly recommend staying here and taking full advantage of the beautiful surroundings and relaxing atmosphere of the cabin if you need some serious rejuvenation in your life. The black bears and woodland creatures that roam the property made our trip that much better. Cooking salmon one night brought a mama bear and her two cubs to our front porch! What an amazing opportunity to see such magnificent creatures (respect them from a safe distance, and don’t you dare even think about feeding them - they deserve better). We were able to make every meal but 1 there, and the kitchen was great for it. Things we brought included our own blender (they also have one there), food processor, spiralizer, a cast iron pan, knives and spatulas. If you plan to do a lot of cooking at the house, I suggest you bring some of your own utensils, theirs were sort of falling apart and the knives super dull. The pans there are Teflon-coated, so if you don’t want to cook in that, bring your own like we did.
The view was absolutely breathtaking. It was clear that they took extra effort to ensure the place was spotless before our arrival and that we would have everything we needed for our stay. The cabin is conveniently located near great hiking spots as well. Overall, we would highly recommend this destination for the perfect remote, couple's getaway.
Perfect easy get away trip. Stunning views. Very clean. Set up perfectly to feel at home from the moment you walk in. From the blue tooth speakers, to all the cookware and bake ware you could possibly need this cabin was not missing a thing. Hiking and horse back riding are only minutes away if you like activities otherwise there is no need to leave the balcony. Easy check in, easy check out. Truly the perfect get away cabin and worth every penny.
