I was 100% pleased with my experience at this cabin. The amenities are great, the cabin was very clean and the pictures give a perfect picture of what you will will experience. This was my second stay and I will definately be back!
This is a cute cabin and surprisingly private and the view is unbeatable. It is located near several cabins but you don't feel like you are in view of everyone when you are on the porch or open the main curtain. The kitchen looks out to another cabin and the parking spaces but the view is out the front door. We have been renting from JMH for about 6 years and really like the friendly staff and their responsiveness if anything ever arises that needs attention.
Another Pleasant visit to Gatlinburg
This was a 6 day visit for us. We have rented cabins through Jackson Homes on 3 other occasions. As usual, check-in was quick and easy.
This home is on Jackson Mountain and the perfect size for two; which led to this selection. The cabin, as named, has excellent views and a marvelous deck and spa area. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and eating in. The cleanliness/repair level was acceptable. There is dust accumulation on some walls, throw rugs are very dirty, and the floor in the commode area is loose. None of these factors hampered our enjoyment of the cabin.
The only thing that may dissuade from a return visit is the particular location. It is in a close group of 3 shares parking with two others. If all three cabins were rented, getting in and out of the parking could have been difficult. Also, the driveway is a steep incline, with blind spots entering parking as well as the roadway - could prove hazardous. It is this factor only, that will leave us to a different cabin next time.
As is check-in, check-out is equally easy.
Note : I would not recommend the cabin for anyone with walking disability. The step up from the parking area to the porch is very big. I have hip issues and had to grab the porch beam, or have assistance to get up or down from the porch. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Breathtaking View. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed it and apologize for any problems you experienced. We have scheduled the cabin for a deep cleaning and will assess the bathroom floor. We are glad that this did not hamper your enjoyment of the cabin. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
My husband and I stayed at Breathtaking View from 11/21-11/24. Although it rained most of the time we were there it was still a very fun and relaxing trip. Our cabin was clean and well stocked as I expected it would be. We have stayed with Jackson Mountain Homes before and were very pleased with their service. Everything about the cabin was great. It was located in a development which cuts down somewhat on the quietness and serenity. We stayed at a different cabin last year that was further out and more secluded. If you don't mind neighbors then you won't be disappointed. The cabins are pretty well situated so that you are not looking directly at another cabin. I felt like this area, called Black Bear Falls would be great for someone that has never stayed in a cabin and wants to feel like there is still some civilization around. It was close to the grocery store and only a few minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. The only wildlife we saw was the neighborhood cat. Overall, I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting a nice getaway. For me personally I kind of like a little more seclusion, but that's not a knock on the cabin itself. And by the way, the view was pretty awesome!
This was our first time coming to Gatlinburg and we are so glad we picked Jackson Mountain Homes. Breathtaking View was clean, updated, and extremely close to downtown Gatlinburg. The other two cabins in this little lot are extremely close, but of the three cabins, this one offers the most privacy. It was also nice, because the week we were there, the other 2 cabins were empty! The hottub was nice to use after a long day of hiking. It was a wonderful vacation and I can't wait to go back!
Had a great stay in Gatlinburg. Cabin was about 3 miles from the main drag, so you don't get any of noise and you get that feeling of seclusion, but still close enough that it's only a short drive away. There weren't many people around, so it was pretty quiet while we were there. Can't say the same if it was a busier weekend, because the cabins are pretty close together.

Relaxing with a Killer View!
We loved this cabin! The location is perfectly centered between white water rafting companies and downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin was nicely furnished and extremely clean with all necessary amenities and plenty of space.
We were slightly disappointed that this cabin was surrounded by so many other cabins (not as much privacy as we hoped) but the view made up for it. One major complaint was the bed was terribly uncomfortable, we both woke up with back pain after the first night. Replace the bed and this cabin gets 5 stars!
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 08/20/2013
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Breathtaking View. We are happy to hear that you loved it! We apologize for any discomfort you experienced from the bed and will have it assessed. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and your understanding. We hope to see you again soon!
As always we love Mountain Jackson Homes! Service is excellent. The cabin was very nice with such a great deck and porch swing! Our only thing was, for us, there were a lot of cabins very close. I guess we didn't realize that when we reserved it. We don't mind other cabins around but this is a very large community of cabins. I did feel safe there though. The view was awesome too! Our first morning we got up and there were bear tracks on our deck! That was exciting.
this Cabin was very clean, quiet, and private. the name of the Cabin speaks for itself. Jackson Homes staff are freindly and very helpful. they got us in a few hours early which helped. I definatley would recomend renting from them.

Terrible first and last experience
We arrived at the Breathtaking View at about midnight our first day. When we arrived at the cabin the temperature inside was 54 degrees F. The fan was clearly not blowing anything out of the vents and the fireplace had a 30 minute timer that was barely keeping the living room warm.
We contacted the management and soon received a call from maintenance who after having my wife run around for a half hour between the thermostat and feeling registers he told her that once the temperature reached around 65 degrees then the fan would kick on. Nothing you can do when the person who is in charge of maintenance is clearly oblivious as too how the heating unit works.
A half hour later nothing had changed so we called again. This time the maintenance person could not be reached after the management tried to get a hold of him for a half hour. Finally they called someone that took an hour to come check out our problem. An hour and a half later he arrived and what do you know the fan was disconnected due to some wires being disconnected/broken, as well as a problem with the motor.
So roughly 6 hours after we arrived we finally had heat blowing as the sun was coming up. We wasted half of our vacation day because of this problem and being overly exhausted. We rarely get to go on vacation and this certainly was not how we wanted to start it!
The pictures and information on your site do not clearly show how close the cabins are too one another (practically on top of each other) . And the road signs are not clearly marked, making it hard to navigate.
We have waited a few weeks too see if someone from Jackson Mountain Homes would contact us about our stay. Or even offer a partial refund for our trouble. But we have not been contacted. Needless to say we will definitely not be staying in any of your cabins again. Very disappointed with the service.
Great Weekend Getaway
Great for a 3 day weekend getaway to the mountains. Wonderful view, clean, great furnishings and exactly has photos described. Felt very private even though there are cabins behind it and beside it. Gatlinburg less than 10 minutes away and a grocery store right down the street was a great convience. We definitely plan to return!
Allyson and Andrew
We had a wonderful time at Breathtaking View. The accommodations were very beautiful. We had a great time in Tennessee and would gladly stay there in the future.
The view is really breathtaking
My wife and I stayed in the Breathtaking View cabin in mid-October, 2012, during the peak of the fall foliage. We prepaid everything so check in was very easy. We thought it was a fantastic visit. The view was as expected. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with the appropriate household requirements, even had a wine bottle opener. It was well furnished and had 3 TVs, DVD player, etc. There are cabins around you but this is a very private cabin. It had a hot tub on the porch. The porch has a great and private view of the mountains. The proch extended over 2 sides of the cabin. We would love to stay there again. My brother in law and his wife will be staying there this spring based on our recommendation. It is very convenient to Gatlinburg, a few minutes away. Only went into town once due to the crowds (this was not a shopping vacation anyway). We were either at the national park or enjoying the view from the porch.
The main office was very easy to find and the service was great. There were a lot of cabins in this development, but this particular one feels very secluded. It's actually fairly close to town, but feels like your miles away. The view is amazing,especially from the hot tub and living room. The kitchen was very well stocked with appliances/dishes. The sofa was very uncomfortable, but the main bed was fantastic. We enjoyed playing pool in the loft and spending time outside just sitting on the swing or in the hot tub. There was a lot of bear activity, but that comes with the territory! We will definitely be coming back to Breathtaking View :)
Mark & Jill
This was the first time my husband and I visited Gatlinburg, and the first time using Jackson Mountain Homes. We were very impressed with the check-in process and the accomodations were even better than the pictures showed!
The cabin was extremely clean and very well stocked. The views were magnificent, and there were two lovely rocking chairs on the porch to soak it all in. It was great having laundry in the cabin (washer and dryer) as we were there for just over a week.
We would definitely consider booking this cabin again in the future, and like many others said that signed the guest book, we found ourselves wanting to just spend time in the cabin and not even go into town.
Wonderful place to rent
This cabin is up to it's name Breathtaking View. It was all and more I was hoping for. Fantastic view that is breathtaking. The only thing I would change is to replace the couch. It is starting to break down and is uncomfortable. Read more

We would like to give you an update on the sofa. In consideration of your suggestion, the owner has replaced it and looks forward to your next visit at Breathtaking View!
Breaktaking view- to say the least
I was mezmorized by the view from the cabin. I never wanted to leave the porch... but when I did, I feel in love even more! The inside of the cabin is very cozy and welcoming. The outdoor decor suited it well. The stocked kitchen and movie collection was a pleasant suprise and instantly made me feel at home. While it was very hot during our stay, the private hot tub on deck was a added touch of relaxation. We are returning in October to the same cabin, which should allow for better use of that with hopefully cooler temperatures.
The staff of Jackson Mountain homes is fantastic. Not only are their southern accents welcoming, but their bubbly personalities made me feel happy about my decision. They made my trip very simple. From the email contract, the step by step map to the cabin and the information provided regarding local atractions. They even provided a weekly weather print out! Talk about great customer service!
Thank you very much, and we will see you soon. :)
For our 1st trip away as a couple, it was a needed break for us both.. The view was unbelievable!!! The only conplaint I had was the sofa.. It was a little worn and we are used to a more softer sitting area. Other than that, a great time was had. Read more

The cabin itself was very nice. There are many cabins around and you can easily here your neighbors while enjoying the deck. We were fortunate to not have anyone staying next to us or we would have been on top of each other as three cabins share one driveway. The pans were covered in old dried up food so we could not cook the breakfast items we bought. I reported this to the management and was told it would be corrected. However upon our return the dirty pans still sat on the stove even though a note was left saying they came to.check the alarm. Read more

My Grand Vacation
I have traveled all over and still this is one that was relaxing for me. I loved the stay and my much needed rest.

Wonderful Honeymoon Location!
My husband and I loved this cabin. It was perfect four our honeymoon. Everything was clean, and the kitchen had every cooking item one could need! (That's a plus for us, as we both love to cook.) It was within driving distance to anywhere we wanted to go, but was still private enough so that we wouldn't have to interact with others if we didn't want to. The only time we really saw our neighbors was when we went to get into the car. We plan on coming back!!
Beautiful place vacation home!
After searching quite a bit for a vacation home to rent for a weekend anniversary trip I came across this place. I had heard good things about Jackson Mountain Homes and once I found this place I knew that I wanted to make a reservation. The home was beautiful. It really is as beautiful as the pictures depict. The view from the deck while in the hot tube was amazing. The last night we were there we had a great view of the mountains with a backdrop of stars. The home sits up high enough so that you don't really have people staring down right at you from above. It is close to other homes but not enough to cause any problems. Everything in the cabin was wonderful. We used the fireplace while we watched movies. The pool table upstairs was fun to use after a long day of shopping in Pigeon Forge. The bedroom was nicely prepared. The kitchen had the necessary items to spend a night in to cook as well. Everything was very clean and nicely kept up. I would love to bring a group of four to this home sometime. A great place, highly recommended!!
We really enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It was just the right size for 2 people. I went thru with a lady that I have know for 25 yrs and wee
Have been attracted to each other for a long time but one of us was always in a relationship either at the same time or at least one of us were. We really enjoyed the priviacy.
Great cabin that has everything you need. The porch and balcony are positioned just right so that you feel like you have all the privacy you need. Couch was a little uncomfortable just because it was a pull out and I was surprised that it didn't have it's own internet connection, (although I was able to log on to a connection from a nearby cabin). Would definitely stay here again, and can't wait to come back! Read more

Breathtaking View Fall 2011
Recent stay at Breathtaking View
We found Breathtaking View to be just that... a definite 10 on a 1-10 scale! The views of the Smoky Mountains from the deck of the cabin were awesome to say the least. We managed to arrive in Gatlinburg during the peak leaf color time. Waves of fall color surrounded the cabin.
The cabin itself was very comfortable and welcoming after a long day of sightseeing. The hot tub was very relaxing and the coziness of the cabin's interior welcomed us each night.
I would have preferred a more comfortable couch and hope the owner's replace it in the future. The cushions are very thin and sinkable.
Overall, Breathtaking View is a very comfortable, accessible and welcoming cabin which we hope to stay in again during our future trips to the Smokies! Read more

New Carlisle, OH
Didn't realize the cabins were so close together. Three cabins shared the same small driveway. The view was really nice except if you looked down all you see are other cabins. We are used to staying in cabins more secluded. Thought the bedroom could use a new blanket and carpet cleaned but other than that it was okay. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Breathtaking View. We are sorry to hear that you experienced any disappointment. We agree, most cabins within log home communities such as this, do not offer seclusion. We will assess the blanket for replacement and carpet for cleaning. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and for your understanding. When you are ready to reserve for your next vacation or getaway, just let the reservationist know that you prefer a secluded cabin and they will be happy to help you choose the perfect cabin.
Melissa & Derek
Perfect name for this cabin!!
My husband and I stayed in Breathtaking View from September 10th to the 15th. We found the cabin to be exactly as the pictures show. What the pictures can't describe is how cozy the cabin is. The veiws from the deck are definately breathtaking! We had never been to Gatlinburg before but would definately go again.
Jackson Mountain Homes has wonderful customer service and want to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You would not be disappointed with a stay through Jackson Mountain Homes.
Greenville, North Carolina
Relaxing and Serene
The Breath Taking View Cabin had views that did just that, took your breath away. The cabin was beautiful and close enough to everything you could possibly need or want to do during your vacation (i.e. dinning, shopping, sightseeing, hiking, you name it). The only issue we had was finding the cabin again when we left (Haha!) and that wasn't really a big issue because we enjoyed the views. You're sure to enjoy your visit if you select this cabin.
Lovely cabin with just enough privacy!
Never stayed with Jackson Mountain before but no hesitate in the future! Lovely cabin in our favorite sub-division, excellent service and cleanliness. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
We stayed at the Breathtaking View cabin and found it beautiful and clean and will definitely book it again when we travel back to Gatlinburg. The only comment I have is that we did not get a lot of help out of the staff at check-in when questioning about restaurants to eat it in in town, the woman seemed hesitant to offer information. Otherwise, great vacation and look forward to coming back.
Ed and Kathy Erb
Excellent quality, comfort, convenience, and views.
The online reservation, check-in, and departure services provided by Jackson Mountain Homes were exceptionally easy. The staff were friendly and eager to make our stay an enjoyable one. We found the cabin to be very clean, well maintained, and fully equipped. Breathtaking View met or exceeded all of our expectations for a relaxing, hassle-free stay in a quiet mountain atmosphere that was both sufficiently isolated from and conveniently close to the activities in Gatlinburg. The cabin is appropriately named. The views of the mountains from the decks and the main living area are fantastic. After a long day of sightseeing or hiking in the national park, this cabin's private decks were a perfect place to enjoy the sights and sounds of the mountains as daytime changed to night. Having previously stayed in Gatlinburg's motels and in the national park's campgrounds, we have no doubt that from now on Jackson Mountain Homes and Breathtaking View will be our preferred destination.
had a great time - the cabin is very appropriately titled.
This cabin was wonderful! My husband and I stayed here the first weekend in april and we could see snow-capped mountains right out our front door! The hot tub was so nice at night and the view of the town's lights was beautiful. This cabin is so convenient to downtown Gatlinburg-about 3-5 minutes to get there. The cabin would comfortably sleep 4 and everything we needed was supplied. The cabin was well maintained and very clean. The king bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the pool table upstairs. Check in and out was a breeze! The cabins are very close together, but I still felt like we had privacy since the hot tub was on the far side of the house and there was a door leading to it out of the master bedroom. We will definitely stay with Jackson Mountain Homes again!

Fort Wayne, IN
Truly a Breathtaking View
Love this cabin. We've stayed here before because we like the wrap around balcony and the privacy it gives. It has a great view of Mt. LeConte and is easy to get to.
Cabanas espectaculares, acogedoras como nuestra propia casa, con accesos de agresivas pendientes pero con carreteras bien disenadas; comodas prara transitar en ellas.El majestuoso paisaje bello y a la vez diferenre en cada estacion del anho hace que cada vez que estes en Gatlimburg creas que estas en un lugar diferente. La hurbanizacion de Gatlinburg es inimaginable, nunca creimos que en medio de las montanas se levantara esta ciudad llena de colores y luces, haciendonos creer que estabamos dentro de un libro de cuentos. El unico inconveniente fue que no pudimos estar mas tiempo, pero estamos seguros que volveremos.

Magical Snowy Escape
Staying in the Braethtaking View cabin was the best decision we could have made for a trip in January! All streets leading to our cabin were cleared of snow and ice and kept clear during our entire stay. This was extremely important to us because we have never driven in snow before and don't have a four wheel drive vehicle. It was the main reason we chose this cabin. It was such a relief to not have to worry about being able to get to and from our cabin. Many cabins don't have this luxury. The view was absolutely awesome... but I think it's also important to mention just how close the neighboring cabins are. Lucky for us no one was staying in the neighboring cabins while we were there but privacy would definitely be an issue if the other cabins had been occupied. The cabins were practically on top of each other. That is the only drawback about this cabin. I was really surprised and thrilled at how close it is to the main strip in town. There is even a trolley stop about 2 minutes away. I would definitely consider this the perfect place to stay if there was a little more privacy and space between the cabins... but if that doesn't bother you... you have found the perfect cabin! It is super convienient to everywhere you'll want to go, clean, cozy and the bed is really comfortable which is can be hard to find when you're traveling.
Honeymoon with view!
We were looking for a relaxing place to spend our honeymoon. We found it! Yes, there were other cabins close by but the way everything was set up allowed for total privacy! The view was amazing. I can only imagine how it would look in the fall. We were close enough to downtown Gatlinburg but just far enough away (5 minutes) The cabin was cozy and decorated very nice. If I had to pick one thing to complain out the couch was just very uncomforable.
Great quality at an excellent price
We were really impressed with the cabin, they are all only a couple of years old and are well kept. Full kitchen, Washer and Dryer, the great amenities such as the Hot Tub and Pool Table really made things fun.
We never actually had any reason to call the office - we were one of the few cabins renting at that time and felt completely disconnected with the world, spent evenings in the hot tub outside watching the snow. Totally relaxing.
Aside from the excellent Cabin quality there were alot of fun things to do - Hiking, Aquarium, Scenic Drives, Bike/Scooter rental, tons of places in Pigeon Forge to have fun at. Gatlinburg is a really quaint town with unique and comfy features. Local Wineries.
We were there five days and have zero complaints.
Nick & Nicole
We are from Nashville and we came the day of the flood. It provided us a safe relaxing get away from the chaos at home. It was absolutely beautiful and we would love to come back!
The location, amenities, staff and attention to detail was outstanding. And the view ... simply breathtaking! Our stay during the Thanksgiving holiday was an incredible experience -- one that we will likely make a family tradition for generations to come. Thank you!
Bryn & Rod
Breathtaking View is an Understatement
We spent a few glorious days trying to absorb every nuance and angle of the truly Breathtaking View from every window and corner of the deck. The house is cozy and clean as a whistle and the bed was very comfortable. The staff at Jackson Mountain Homes was great. We will absolutely be back!
Yazoo City, MS
A wonderful trip.
We had a great stay even though our trip was cut short for a job interview, but it was worth it cause I got the job. We took a hike up the mountain while it was snowing, it was great.
40th anniversary in the mountains
My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary at the peak of the leaf season the last week of October. The Breath Taking View cabin was cozy, very clean, and the view was, well, breath taking as it is high on the mountain in Black Bear Falls. It was perfect for 2 people. Our week went by too fast but we left with wonderful memories of our enjoyment of God's creation and handiwork.
Wonderful retreat! Loved relaxing in the hot tub looking out at the mountains.
Panama City, FL
Such a beautiful view!
The location of the cabin was convenient to the park as well as shopping and sightseeing. I could have spent all my time on the deck, looking at the mountains. The cabin was very clean and well stocked for cooking. My only complaint: the condition of the sofa. It is worn out, the cushions are flattened, slide out of place constantly, and the metal framing of the hide a bed may be felt through them.
Had a great time and the cabin was wonderful with a great view. We are hoping to come again next year. Thanks for a great vacation.
The view and experience was "breathtaking" to say the least.
The location of the cabin was great - not too far into the mountains and not too close to the city. It was clean and comfortable.
Bowling Green, KY
Had a wonderful stay at this beautiful cabin. Nice and quiet. It was perfect.
White Hall Arkansas
Relaxing and enjoyable. Loved the view! Could have a few limbs trimmed so you can enjoy view even more! And take better pictures.
would stay again, wish there was more time!
What a View!
This cabin does have a very nice view of the Smokies.
The cabin is very well furnished and easy to call
home for your stay. We loved having the full kitchen
and multiple TVs. The cabin was conveniently located
for our outings to Gatlinburg and to the national
park. The only complaints we really had were, the
bed is very very firm and we like a soft mattress and
the bedding accessories were very average. The
check-in staff was very helpful and friendly. We
would definitely stay in a Jackson Mountain property
again if we return to the area.
My boyfriend and I stayed in "Breathtaking View" and we absolutely fell in love with the cabin! The place was gorgeous and I immediately wished I could buy it!!! The cabin is very modern - the televisions were upscale, the kitchen was very well stocked with every cooking need imaginable, and the hot tub was perfect! The showers were nice and my favorite was the decor - classy!!!
The only thing I would suggest is perhaps replacing the living room sleeper sofa. It sort of sinks in causing the cushions to slide out. The mattress was also very thin. We didn't need to use it for bed just to lay on while watching a movie so wasn't a major deal. Just a suggestion for those families who may need it.
By the way, the DVDs in the cabin - GREAT IDEA!! Loved that they were rather hit movies and some slighter older and some new.
I was sort of worried with the fact that there are 2 other cabins so closeby but I NEVER ever saw them!! We felt like we were completely alone in the beautiful mountains - the way we wanted it to be!!
Thank you Jackson Mountain - you have a customer for life!! See you next Spring Break :)
The best vacation rental in Gatlinburg for a couple!
The view was great along with the cleanliness, space, hot tub, and location. Definitely
will try and rent it again. Way to go JMH!!!
Amazing View and Cozy Cabin
Breathtaking View literally has a breathtaking view. You wake up in the moring to fog rolling off the mountain top. It is beautiful!! The cabin is the perfect size for two people. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool table and hot tub. The service we received from the staff at Jackson Mountain Homes was excellent. They provided a lot of information about sightseeing!!! We look forward to returned again next year!!!
My husband and I wanted a small cabin just big enough for the two of us and this one did fit the bill. It wasn't too small we both had our own bathroom, but wasn't too big or over priced. Nice new cabin. Not too hard to find, take a small car, roads can be kinda tricky and small cars will make the turns easier. Also, take a few extra skillets with you if you plan to cook, there are some, but not enough. Nice TV's and pool table in the loft upstairs. Hot tub was also nice and roomy enough for two "real size" people.
We really enjoyed it and will stay again, and the view "is" all it's cracked up to be. The only suggestion I have is that the couch is getting a little warn out, not too comfy and I wouldn't want to sleep on it, sitting is "ok" but time to replace it.
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 01/26/2010
Thank you for your comments. We will assess the kitchen for necessary cookware and the couch for replacement. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return visits!
What a teriffic getaway!
My husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and my 40th birthday in the same week, and wanted to do something extra-special..we heard about Jackson Mountain Homes from a friend, and brought our children over the Thanksgiving holiday to check JMH out for ourselves...we absolutely LOVED our cabin, Bearskin Ridge, and decided we wanted to return for our special upcoming trip for 2! We are still smiling, remembering our wonderful getaway..the romantic fireplace, secluded porch swing, where we enjoyed our morning coffee and the 'breathtaking view', and the secure feeling of being in a 'community'...our first stay (at Bearskin Ridge)seemed a little too secluded, but we wondered if we would feel as if we had privacy in the community setting...the cabins are designed & situated so well..we had all the privacy we wanted...it was beautifully decorated & the tv's were very nice & we enjoyed time watching videos with the fireplace going..we only had 3 minor complaints..the prior occupants must've fried fish during their stay, because there was an odor during our stay..many of our dishes in the cupboard weren't clean, i think because the dishwasher was older & not running effectively..it had some large pieces of debris in the bottom...and the hottub had a slight odor of mildew & a bit of an oily ring around the water's edge, which made us think it might've not been cleaned recently...other than those things, we couldn't have been more pleased..we returned so rested and satisfied with our stay at "breathtaking view", and we are making plans to return with more of our family during the Christmas holidays..i know we will never stay in a hotel again after our experiences with Jackson Mountain Homes..we're letting everyone who will listen know about you guys! Thanks again for a trip my husband and i will never forget!
Relaxing in your own little world and enjoying nature.
I didn't get to go to Breathtaking View. I did stay in Fireside View, however, and it was beautiful. The service was excellent. The home had everything and more. It was so clean! We had a gorgeous view of the mountains and plenty of windows across the front. There wasn't anything I didn't like about the home or location. It was close to the store and Gatlinburg, but yet in it's on private community. I can't wait to go back!

Lovely cabin, very clean and beautiful view.
We found the cabin to be extremely clean with a beautiful view of the Smokies. During our stay, our neighbors were very quiet adding to the peacefulness. The office staff was more than hospitable and extremely pleasant. The location is perfect. We did not spend much time in Gatlinburg as we found it too commercial and hectic. We stayed off the beaten path and hiked and white water rafted. As the restaurants are not very good in this area, we ended up eating more in the cabin than planned. This didn't bother us as the porch is comfortable with a beautiful view and the living room with fireplace very cozy. It made the trip even more relaxing, which is what we both needed.

The cabin was wonderful and lived up to it's name. The view was amazing and our favorite part. It was almost at the very top of the mountain. Many mornings were spent with coffee on the porch gazing at the smokies from my rocking chair. The jacuzzi was nice at the end of a long day of hiking. We would definitely stay here again. It is a bit smaller than it appears in the photos but that wasn't really a big deal to us. It was clean and well-maintained. Things looked pretty new still. Gatlinburg was a great town to visit and we didn't think it was as overly commercialized as we had heard. Pigeon Forge is terrible with the commercialization. It looks like the drive to Disney World where Gatlinburg still looks like a little mountain town.
We truly enjoyed the cabin. The view was everything we had hoped for. The cabin was far enough away from all of the hustle and bustle of downtown. On our last day, we spent the day on the deck, reading and relaxing the hot tub. I will definitely contact Jackson Homes again on our next visit to the area.

What a Breathtaking View
My wife and I and our 10 yr. old and 11 yr. old daughters stayed here for 5 nites. The young lady at the office was very nice and explained everything to us. The home was exactly what the website said it was. It was vey clean. It had everything you need to make yourself feel like your home. The view was "breath taking". We soaked in the hot tub every nite. The girls loved the pool table. The community pool was also great. The home was in an excellant location overlooking the mountains.
If you have never been to Gatlinburg, you had better get down there. While visiting the Smokies, check out Cades Cove. We saw plenty of wildlife including a bear! Plus it was a beautiful drive getting there. I have nothing negitive to say about Jackson Mountain Homes. The whole experience was wonderful.
We will be back.
Lovely Couple's Retreat
We loved our stay at the cabin for our anniversary weekend get away. Perfect place to spend some peaceful time together with easy access to the park and Gatlinburg. The cabin has all a couple needs to relax and have fun together.

Couldn't have picked a better place!
The cabin was great! View was amazing and we loved the hot tub, fireplace, and pool table. Cabin was very clean and cozy! We would definitely go back!
Very good, not great
Loved the location, the whole experience working w/
your staff, loved the view, and the overall
condition of the cabin. We will use you again for
sure. Here are a few things we thought could use
improvement: 1. The bed linens appeared worn and
just didn't seem fresh. The comforter wasn't
great. The towels were not great. And the
shower heads should be replaced with ones that are
adjustable. The other experiences over shadowed the
bad and we will use Jackson Mountain homes again

Thank you for your comments. We will assess the bedding right away and forward your recommendations on to the cabin owner. Thanks again!
we did not want to leave
We are from dearborn heights michigan and as soon as we got to our place we were so excited. The place was so comftorble and the view was seriously breathtaking. The place was perfect for four of us. Two couples but it would also be good for families. The area is perfect for vactioning for couples or for kids and families.
Addi's First Vacation
Wow! I can?t say enough about how wonderful this cabin was. The view was spectacular. The Cabin was super clean and the bed was comfy. It was the perfect place for our one year old daughters first vacation. We had such a great time and Jackson Mountain Homes were so easy to work with. They answered every question we had and made us feel like family. We look forward to many more years of renting Jackson Mountain Homes.
West Columbia, SC
The Breathtaking View cabin was excellent! The view is absolutely amazing, and sitting outside on the porch in the rocking chairs or swing made us forget about life for a while. The worst part of the cabin was leaving!! :)
We enjoyed it so much that we're going to stay there again this year.
Relaxing in the Smokies
Stayed at the Breathtaking View for a short weekend trip. Perfect for a quick recharge. Views indeed were true to the name sake. Morinig tea on the wrap around porch watching the sun rise was truly relaxing.
While the outdoor cooking was a challenge there are plenty of good restaurants to make up for the lack of a good grill.
Could use larger towels and better grade of bathroom amenities.
Overall well worth the money.
The name says it all...Breathtaking View!
Breathtaking View is an exellent place to stay for 2....great ammenities, great location, great view. I do believe it would be a little crowded for 4. We have stayed many places in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but Black Bear Falls is my favorite!
Our trip was very relaxing with wonderful views. We will come back again and ask for "Breathtaking View"
This was a amazing cabin, very cozy & Romantic. Very quiet and awesome view of the smokies! We happened to get engaged while visiting on this trip and will definitely be a vacation to remember! THis is our second time staying in the smokies and highly recommend it! Cabin was very nice, clean and inviting!

We spent our Honeymoon at this Breathtaking cabin. It was the best! It was very clean, it was quite and the view was unreal. We hope to come to this same cabin every chance we get. Thank You
We had a great time. Location of the cabin to gatlinburg was excellent. Privacy was great along with the view. The staff was friendly and very heplful. I do not know why anyone would stay in a hotel when there are cabins to be rented.
