What Past Guests Are Saying
Great Place to Get away
This was our second time staying at Luxury Lookout. The cabin is outstanding. The main floor is extremely cozy and is complete with a kitchen, flat screen tv, fireplace that turns on with the touch of a button, and bathroom/bedroom leading out to a balcony looking over the mountains. The balcony is complete with a hot tub and unobstructed view of the mountains. The top floor had a second bathroom along with a shower, jacuzzi tub, pool table and another balcony with amazing views. Both times we have stayed the cabin has been extremely, clean, warm and inviting. It is also a quick drive to downtown Gatlinburg but far enough away not to be affected by the hustle and bustle. You can even sneak in a round of golf at the course just a minute away. We highly recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a great spot to spend a few days in the mountains.
Just what we needed!
My husband and I have not had a trip since our son was born a year ago! This was the perfect weekend getaway! We couldn't believe how clean everything was...(I'm very picky on things being clean)..everything was just as I had expected...perfect! all ameneties are top notch!! This is the place to stay! We will be coming back again! Thank you for a great experience!
Want to go back...
I was thrilled to find a pet friendly, secluded cabin with the amenities that this one has when I was looking for cabins a few months ago. I'm not really sure what I was expecting, but the minute we walked in my husband and I felt at home - it didn't take long for our dog to settle in either. The decor in the cabin was great and the views are outstanding. There were tons of dishes, pots, and pans so I won't be bringing any the next time we visit. The road to the cabin is fully paved but was rather narrow for our big, extended cab truck; however, we made it to and from our cabin with no problems...most people will slow down and move over when they see an oncoming vehicle. Getting out of the driveway was somewhat of a pain as well since we couldn't turn around. After backing out a few times and going up the road to do a 3 point turn, we got the hang of it. It was my husband's first time visiting the Smokies but we liked the cabin so much that we spent most of our time there. The only issue we had was the backing up of water in the main floor shower, but that was ok because we had an upstairs shower. We had no problem checking in or checking out - just hated that we had to check out so early. My husband and I are already discussing another trip and are planning to stay in this cabin again. The cabin was a perfect mountain getaway. It was the right price and in the perfect location.
Perfect setting for the perfect weekend.
We had a great time at this cabin. The views are wonderful and the cabin is perfect. Everything you need, it is there. It was great to just show up and unwind.
A perfect get away!!
We enjoyed our stay at Luxury Lookout so much! My husband and I lead very busy lives and getting away alone almost never happens, but we were able to come to Gatlinburg for a week and we were so pleased with our choice of cabin! It was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious! There were plenty of great kitchen essentials to cook with, including wine glasses and a cork screw! We would certainly stay here again and would (and have) recommend it to anyone coming to the mountains for some R&R;!! You won't be disappointed.
The cabin was great and had everything we needed. The views were amazing. The best thing is that the cabin is pet friendly so we were able to bring out dogs along. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great vacation!
Mr and Mrs Dykes
The cabin was absolutely amazing! We have been to the smokies before but never in a cabin as nice as this. The view is unbelievable. We cant wait to come back.
One of the Best vacations I've been on in years!!
This was the first time in 6 years that my husband and I went on a vacation that was just the 2 of us. We ended up takeing our two dogs, Bosley and Charlie, along too. (didnt want to put them in kinels or find a house sitter) This year we decided to chose a differant cabin since the one that we always stayed in had sold. We have always chosen Jackson Mountain Homes and have always been very satisfied with everything!! The customer service was wonderful!! This cabin was well worth every penny. We spent most of our time in the cabin. The veiw was awesome. The location was great too. It was secluded, which was what we wanted. You could sometimes hear the neighbors but you never seen them. The cabin had everything that you could need for a stay!! It was very well stocked and clean!! My husband and I enjoyed it so much that we called twice to extend our stay!! If I could change anything...It would have to be the grill. Yet, even that wasnt a really bad thing. Over all, best week we have had in a long time!!! Thanks Jackson Mountain Homes!!!
My husband and I just stayed here. It was a great cabin, very clean,updated. Very nice. Only complaint was the lights above pool table were very dim, could not see to play pool at night. Other than that a great experience.
A Couple from
My wife and I were looking for a rental cabin for a 10th wedding anniversary trip near Smoky Mtn National Park. We were hoping to find one that had three important aspects: privacy, a great view, and a nice place. Luxury Lookout hit it out of the park! The cabin was well maintained, clean and very nice. It was very secluded which was important to us. The view was fantastic. We probably spent 90% of our time at the cabin on the deck looking at the view. We were disappointed when it was time to leave. There were other cabins in the area that were less expensive, but I feel the extra cost was worth it. If we find ourselves looking for a cabin in that area again, we'll certainly check Luxury Lookout first!
Great cabin with great amenities
Luxury Lookiut is fantastic. The view was amazing, the cabin was spotless, and te amentes were like home. I felt as if it was our second home for the weekend. We will be staying here again.
Top Of The World!
The cabin was awesome. Everything was just as good or better than the pictures show. It was very secluded and relaxing. Had a wonderful time. Only complaint I can even think of is getting in and out of the driveway, but I'm not used to mountain driveways so...
I would give it a 10 out of 10 for sure.
My family and I stayed here at the beginning of august and it was wonderful. The view itself would be enough to make it great, but the house was cozy and fun as well. We have one daughter who slept on the fold out in the living room, but it would be great for a few kids with both couches being fold outs. Lovely accomodations; we will be back when we can stay longer!
Jackson Mountain homes staff was great as they usually are. My husband and I have been renting from them for 10 years now.
We spent three nights at Luxury Lookout...two adults, two kids and two dogs. The house was immaculate and the views were amazing. According to my sons though, the pull out sofa beds were not at all comfortable so they just ended up sleeping on the couches not pulled out for the 2nd and 3rd nights. The only gripe I really have though was that there is just no flat ground at the house which does present a bit of a problem when you have dogs with you! But overall, a great time in a beautiful house.
The photos are accurate and the place is very nice
The pros are numerous and we would definitely stay here again. The con is that there is no flat area at all around this place. I guess that's obvious now that we've been there and it's a mountain view, but with kids and a dog they were limited to the driveway.
10years of Bliss!!
We had wonderful 10 year anniversary at Luxury Lookout. Only problem was we couldnt stay longer. We liked the view from the top deck the best and the home was very clean. The jetted tub in the loft was fantastic. We hope to come back again
The most, Wonderful peaceful Luxury vacation I ever had
We had the most wonderful time so quite and beautiful the view was awesome, Even our pup had his first vacation and enjoyed it.It was so simply to set up and little hard to find because the direction was wrong. But sooo worth the stay I would diffently come back to the luxury lookout cabin. Thanks you were awesome!!!
The view is outstanding. It is secluded and very clean inside. It is a little ways from town, but that is the only way you can get secluded. Large tv, hot tub, many decks! It was awesome! We really enjoyed our time here!
true to the pictures
this cabin was even more wonderful than the photos. The view was breath taking- that alone makes it worth every penny! The cabin was very clean and the staff was very friendly when we had questions. Be ready to drive up some steam and narrow roads to get the cabin- it was a bit tricky to find at first. everything in the cabin seemed brand new and very well taken care of. Plenty of towels, soap, dishes ect. Best part was being so close to go hiking and to downtown yet you couldn't see another cabin! the only slight problem we had was that the hot tub stayed to hot and we couldn't get the temperature to go down- it stayed at 110*
A weekend of total relaxation
Loved every single bit of our stay! It was so nice to be so close but so far away from other cabins and all the noise of downtown gatlinburg! We loved it so much we have planned another trip in September!

Perfect spot to unwind and disconnect!
We were looking for a secluded cabin away from Gatlinburg that did not feel like it was situated in a "cabin subdivision". Luxury Lookout was recommended by the staff at JMH, and it was perfect! The lack of high-speed internet and lack a cell signal actually forced us to disconnect, which was the best thing for us! I was actually able to finish reading a book without interruption! We loved the attention to detail in the cabin and the view was awesome - we could actually see the mountains even at night, thanks to the full moon! A recommendation we would have would be to include a cable listing guide in the information book at the cabin. And, we were concerned about the fact that the wood bees were having a real feast on the home - is there a way to seal the logs to prevent damage from them? We told ourselves repeatedly through the few days we were at Luxury Lookout that we would be back. Now, to find some time in the schedule...
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 05/22/2012
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Luxury Lookout. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hate to hear you experienced any problems with the wireless internet. The modem and router needed to be re-set, but are working properly now. The wood bees are a downside of living in a wood home in the mountains, and we will spray for them again. Fortunately, they are only a problem in the spring! We would love to have you stay with us again, so when you find time in the schedule just give us a call and we'll get you taken care of! Thank you, Jackson Mountain Homes

Truly a Luxury Lookout
This was an excellent unit. Clean, modern and beautiful.
Perfect 2 years in a row
My wife and I have vacationed at Luxury Lookout two years in a row. We plan to come back next year. The cabin is awesome and in a private location. It is very well mantained with all new appliances. We highly reccomend staying at this cabin. We liked it so much we only went to town once in three nights. Jackson homes is a great company. They have a simple system and the employees are very nice and helpful. The prices are very fair and for what you get I would not bother trying another company. So all around this is a great way to spend a vacation.

Great cabin for a romantic getaway!
This was our 3rd stay with Jackson Mountain. Luxury Lookout is a great cabin - private location, spotless, organized and seems brand new! There is no wasted space. We enjoyed the fireplace and upper balcony to watch the sunsets. If you are traveling with pets, keep in mind that there is not much yard space so it's a bit of a walk to take them out. This cabin is about a 20 minute drive from downtown Gatlinburg, but we love being outside of town - that's the whole reason we go to the Smokey mountains!
Best Cabin & View Ever!
After staying in multiple cabins in the area, I can honestly say that this was my favorite cabin of all time!! The cabin is clean, modern, and gorgeous- everything worked perfect and I really enjoyed having the security alarm. Also the cabin was very private and secluded.
The best feature is the view itself! You literally feel like you are enveloped in the mountains themselves. There is no way for the pictures to actually do the view justice. Phenomenal! Already looking forward to booking this cabin again in a few months- I dont ever want to stay anywhere else.
Our 3rd stay have another set for December. Love the location, Love the cabin, Perfect for 2 people.
The luxury lookout was a beautifully decorated cabin with all the amenities that anyone could ask for. The view and the location were excellent. My new wife and I enjoyed the spectacular views and the coziness of all the cabin had to offer. I would highly recommend this cabin for any couple looking for a great romantic getaway. I would definitely stay here again on our next trip. 5 stars +++.
Luxury Lookout was even better than expected. Everything was so clean. We had everything we needed to make this a perfect place to stay. Especially great was the beautiful view out every window.
We had a wonderful, relaxing time and plan a return in the near future. Great Views!
The cabin was beautiful and the views were spectacular! We absolutely loved it and will return!
We would love this as a second home!
This is our second stay at Luxury Lookout (fifth stay with JMH) and we absolutely love everything about it. It is private, has a wonderful view, an alarm system, and all the amenities. Check-in is quick and easy with JMH and they always call to make sure everything is in order when we arrive.
The location of this home is about 15 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, but that is part of the allure; it forces us to relax! This home is perfect for a couple since it has just one bedroom, but there are two bathrooms and sofa sleepers that would accomodate a family of four. We didn't bring our pets, but noticed that the yard isn't accessible. The driveway is wide and the road above is rarely travelled so a short walk would be no problem. If you are looking for a great place to relax in peace and quiet...away from town, this is it!
Fabulous Getaway Vacation
This was one of the best vacations my husband and I have had. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The views are incredible and there was plenty of privacy which was exactly what we were looking for. It is a little bit of a drive into town but the drive was not bad. We cooked most of our meals in the cabin. There's a grocery store about 15 minutes away and there was plenty of cooking utensils and dishes provided in the cabin. We will definitely come back!
Serene, great view and worth the drive from town
It's nice to get away from all the carnival that downtown G'burg has become. Some may think it's too far out from town, but I think the drive is worth it. In fact, I found it to be very relaxing driving back to the cabin at night with all of nature's summer sounds. The evening sky view is superb because there is no interference from the city lights. Also, if you are going to spend a lot of time in the Glades, it's a lot more convenient to stay out that way.
There are two reasons why it didn't rate 5 star, though:
1. the second floor would be a much better second bedroom than a pool table room. Especially with the jacuzzi there. Sort of an awkward combination.
2. The outdoor grill was a joke. It's something I would expect to see in a poorly funded community park.
On the fix-it list please include:
•replace the bedroom deck door draperies--you can't enjoy the view during the day because the drapes won't raise up
•is there really not a shower in the master bath? never could find the lever to switch to the shower, if there was one
•deck furniture needs to be replaced..badly
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 08/26/2011
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Luxury Lookout! We will forward your suggestions regarding the layout, draperies and deck furniture to the owners. The grill is the kind you find at a park and we are sorry that it did not meet your expectations. There is a shower in the master bath -- it may be that it is the kind where the shower mechanism is located in the faucet spout and must be pulled down to activate the shower. We hope that you will choose to stay with Jackson Mountain Homes, Inc. again in the future.
We found that the Chalet was the perfect relaxing getaway for us. It had the convenience of being located within 20 mins. of Gatlinburg but in a very beautiful, secluded area with amazing views of the Smokie Mountains. We are already planning our next stay.
This was my second time coming to this cabin and it was just as nice as the first. One complaint that i had was that the shower in the master bedroom doesn't work.
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 07/15/2011
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Luxury Lookout. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed both of your visits! We apologize that you experienced any problem with the shower. We will have our maintenance department make any necessary repairs right away. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you again soon!
We found the cabin spotless, the furnishings tasteful and the kitchen well stocked with cooking implements.We would definitely return.
A beautiful historical city in Indiana
Views Took Our Breath away!
What a way to unwind and relax... this beautiful cabin was just what we needed for a romantic getaway!
We would return from golfing, shopping, etc... to
the wonderful quietness of nature...and the view!!!
Nothing can surpass sunset in the mountains away from all the hustle and bustle. We will be back to this cabin for years to come!
Beautiful and peaceful
We stayed at the Luxury Lookout for 4 relaxing days. The May weather was rainy and hindered the otherwise gorgeous view, but we needed solace and quiet after a family tragedy. The view from the large comfortable bed was wonderful even in the rain. This cabin was just perfect for what we needed. One previous review said it was too far from town, but that wasn't too much of an issue for us (about 20 minutes). The solitude was worth it.
We spent our honeymoon at Luxury Lookout and loved every minute. The views were amazing. We ate every meal except for two on the deck. Even our dog loved being there. The after hours check in was easy and convenient. We were called the next day to make sure that we arrived okay and found the cabin okay. Cell phone reception is hit or miss in the cabin, but if you want to get away from everything, this is the place!
My husband and I stayed at Luxury Lookout from the end of april to the beginning of May as a belated honeymoon. The weather was almost perfect (except for a few storms on our first couple of nights). The cabin was amazing, we didn't want to leave!! The views were great and there weren't any neighbors too close by. The only complaint I can think of would be that the grill doesn't have a cover so it's a little difficult to get food to the desired wellness/temperature. There could also stand to be a few more pans in the kitchen for baking. But the cabin itself is wonderful! We also had our dog with us, we were able to walk her to the end of the road (which isn't too far away) to let her potty on relatively flat land. We enjoyed our stay and all the staff we dealt with at Jackson Mountain Homes were wonderful! They were very helpful in the booking process and once we got there. We will definitely be back!!
A total vacation: active and relaxing in the Smoky Mountains.
Our cabin was very comfortable. It was spacious for a one bedroom, and all the amenities were updated which also helped to make our stay one our best vacations. My wife and I have already decided to stay in this cabin again.
Long Weekend Get-a-Way
The cabin is so pretty and the view is great but it is a long drive to downtown (about 20-25 minutes one way). It is tastefully decorated and fairly new. Since there were no leaves on the trees we didn't have full privacy on the deck with the hot tub. I was disappointed with that.
We also didn't know about the "time of year" for lady bugs. When we arrived there were a mass of dead lady bugs everywhere!! They continued to be a nuisance the entire weekend.
As much as we loved the cabin itself, we will not stay here again for lack of privacy, distance to town and the bug issue.
I will rent again from Jackson Rental. They were extremely nice at check in and even called us the morning after our arrival to see if we were happy with our accomodations. They did send someone out to clean up the dead lady bugs the day after our arrival but the bugs continued to be bad our entire weekend stay.
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 03/10/2011
Thank you for taking the time to complete a review regrding your recent stay at Luxury Lookout. We hope that you enjoyed your stay and apologize that your stay was anything less than perfect. Luxury Lookout is considered to be one of our most private 1 bedroom cabins. We apologize that you didn't feel it was as private as previous guests felt. We agree that the lady bugs can be a nuissiance. Unfortunately, pest control has little effect on them. They take refuge during cold weather in any warm crack or crevice of a home around doors, windows, between logs and/or any other place that they can gain access to warmth. When spring arrives or a warm sunny winter day they emerge only to find that they went the wrong way and found themselves trapped inside the house. The best way to deal with them is to sweep or vacuum them up and tie them inside a plastic bag. During the summer months they are not as bad. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you again!
excellent view, great if you want to be away from the city
really liked the layout of the cabin. the mountain view was great. It took about 20-25 minutes to drive to downtown gatlinburg so if you plan on being in town, you may want something a little closer. I had some issues obtaining the date that I wanted but other than that the service was fantastic. I felt that the prices were a little high but they were comparable to others in the area

Above it all.
It's all about altitude at Luxury Lookout, from the siting of the house to the qualilty of the appointments. This is a wonderful venue that is close to everything but far from ordinary--privacy, luxury, and peace are at hand.
Saint Louis, MO
We loved our cabin!!!
The place was beautiful and well maintained.
The appliances were great. Huge Fridge and loved all the cooking utensils and vessels.
We loved having the Comcast "On Demand" on the Huge TV. It made it nice to snuggle on the couch in front of the gorgeous fireplace.
A couple minor dislikes:
The ladybugs were everywhere. But I know it's the season for them.
We didn't like how far from the city the cabin is. It might be helpful to list XX miles from Gatlinburg on the description.
Also, although we were there to relax, the lack of cell service was sort of a pain. But the wireless internet made up for it!
All in all it's a great place!! and the best part, We never once saw a bear!!!
cabin was nice, great view and good area very private!
The perfect getaway!
This was our first vacation without the kids in 20 years! What a great decision to visit Luxury Lookout! The cabin was immaculate and the view amazing - we are already looking at the calendar to see when we can visit again!
The cabin is very luxurious and comfortable. Its got all the amenities one would want to have a great time in the middle of the quaint mountains.
Excellent view - no neighbors in sight!
The entire cabin was spotless, with wonderful wood fixtures. Big bed, wonderful view to wake you up, awesome pool table with it's own TV. Great location, could not see one neighbor at all during the summer with leaves on the trees. Great golf course at the bottom of the "mountain." Only bad thing is it's about 8 miles out from Gatlinburg, but we didn't mind that at all.
Luxury Lookout was absolutely perfect. The view was amazing, the cabin was amazing! Definately worth the 10 hour drive from Milwaukee. We will be back for many years to come.
