About Tom and Lucinda
We live in Miami, Fl but we love the mountains and the friendly people in Tennessee. Tom grew up in in Switzerland and Lucinda grew up in New York state. Together we have traveled to many countries for hiking and beach vacations but the Smoky Mountains and the Florida Panhandle are top on our list. We enjoy all the outdoor activities that both areas offers and the warmth of smaller town living!
Tom and Lucinda purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Tom and Lucinda chose Gatlinburg
We chose the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area for a number of reasons. It offers great recreational activities year round. It has something for everyone- from kids to seniors. You are close to everything but still feel like you are far away. The area has wonderful scenery, national parks, mild weather and friendly people. Plus the area is centrally located and easy to get to from many states. You can return to Eastern TN year after year and still find new things to do!
What makes this Cabin unique
You will enjoy the closeness to Cades Cove, Smoky Mountain Park, Dollywood, shopping, all activities, restaurants and other attractions. In addition, when you are in the cabin, you will feel like you are a million miles away from it all! This really is a bit of paradise!

Beautiful house with great views but not very clean.
Very satisfied with the home and accommodations. Wonderful views. Poor job on cleanliness. Dust and cobwebs everywhere. Toilets not clean and some beds were unmade upon arrival.
Private. Gorgeous view
Lucinda & Tom were great to work with. Driveway was steep & a bit scarey. Cupboard space was a bit limited. Overall a very nice property. With sleeping space on 3 floors plus a loft had lots of privacy. Kids enjoyed pool table & football.
Tom and Lucinda, I want to say thank you for helping my family have such a great vacation! The location of the cabin makes you feel more isolated than you are. The views are incredible!
Yes, the driveway can be a bit intimidating, but as long as you are going slow there shouldn't be any issues.
Check In process was extremely easy. The cabin is well outfitted for large groups in terms of kitchen ware (pots/pans, cups, utensils, etc.) and bed linens. The single fridge meant more trips for groceries, but we combined those with our outings so it wasn't that inconvenient. There was some mildew on the bottom of the shower curtains, but no one was bothered and it wasn't gross, it's just what happens with shower curtains. The bathrooms themselves were all very clean. I would recommend having the cleaners do a dust under the beds, but otherwise all rooms were also well cleaned.
Overall, we all had such a fantastic time. Owner response by Tom and Lucinda was great. We requested to have the hot tub serviced and they had someone out the same day. We were a large group (15 people) and the hot tub was heavily used so this is pretty normal. I would suggest having whoever services your hot tub to maybe add broad spectrum enzyme formula or chitosan clarifier to help.
Our only real complaint was the number of towels provided, and this was *only* an issue due to our large group using the hot tub daily as well as showering, and so we ran through towels very quickly.
Priceless Family Vacation
The cabin was everything and more as advertised. The views were fantastic and the accommodations were great. No issues occurred except one TV was not working, the owners got with Spectrum and it was fixed in a day. Great customer service. We would definitely rent from them again and they own many other homes in Florida and Tennessee; I would recommend Tom and Lucinda to anyone.
thank you for the kind words - we would love to have you back at one of our cabins in the future or any of our Beach Houses on St. George Island, Florida
Thank you for staying with us

Cleaning crew was late finishing from previous rental which delayed our entry about 10 minutes and because they rushed, they did not do the best job of cleaning. Porch and mats actually had mud and dirt on them.
We loved the house and the view and would not hesitate to rent again. We did have a visit from a large bear searching for food remnants on the grill. We were happy to see that.
The refrigerator door handle was very loose and there were two screws lying on the window seal that i believe belong to that handle. I was tempted to try to replace and repair but was afraid i might cause damage that i would be responsible for.
Thanks for the rental!
Thank you for staying at Smoky Mountain High. We are glad you enjoyed the cabin. We apologize for the 10 minute delay of cabin being ready. During the busy summer time when most cabin change over on Saturday's it's quite a challenge for the cleaners - understandably. However more important is that you enjoyed the cabin, its amenities and fabulous views. We hope to see you back again next year

We'll definitely return!
This cabin was everything advertised and more. Super clean, beautiful view, seclusion and all the comforts of home. Owners were very accessible and ensured that our stay was seamless form start to end.
We are glad we could accomodate your family on such a short notice after you were forced out of the cabin you stayed in due to bug issues/infestation and even more then that we are happy you enjoyed Smoky Mountain High with its wonderful secluded location and fabulous Mountain Views
We hope to have you back in the future
