“Belvedere” is an Italian word meaning “a building designed and situated to look out upon a pleasing view.” What an apt description for this breathtaking, richly-appointed log cabin nestled into the Great Smoky Mountains. This home in the trees has it all – resort amenities, luxury touches, and lots of in-cabin entertainment options. And for those who just cannot “unplug,” don’t worry—this cabin has free long distance and Wi-Fi Internet access.
The great room in “Belvedere” lives up to its name, with a stacked stone fireplace, 46” LCD HDTV with DVD, and surround sound. It’s all just steps away from a fully-equi...pped kitchen, and a gas grill outside on the deck. After dinner, relax in the country porch rockers or soak away your stress in the hot tub while enjoying the incredibly view.
But don’t get distracted by the luxuries in the common areas, prepare to call “dibs” on the master bedroom suite. You will say “Bravissimo!” when you lay eyes on this oasis for two with an airy vaulted ceiling, fireplace and bedside Jacuzzi. The other three bedrooms are ready retreats as well, with king-sized beds and satellite TVs. No detail has been spared—even the sleeper sofas have memory foam mattresses, making “Belvedere” a comfort for up to 12 people!
While some relax on the main level, the party can be going on in the lower level game room, with a pool table and 46-game arcade unit. Ready for movie night? This cabin is! Another 46” LCD HDTV with DVD and surround sound awaits.
Located in Bear Creek Crossing, “Belvedere” includes access to a miniature golf course and indoor and outdoor swimming pools! And Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are only three short miles away. So although you won’t find a quirky butler named “Belvedere,” you will discover that this “Belvedere” redefines the gloriousness of luxury, relaxation and fun all in one spot!

We had wasps flying around the cabin the whole time. When I called to get someone over, it took them 2 and a half hours to get there. Buy then, they had flew all over. We killed 8 total. And by the way, there was a bear that went thru our trash.

Very nice accomodations. Check in was a little slow due to number of people checking in at the same time. Would use Eden Crest again.
Staying at Eden Crest was the best part of our vacation!

We loved having the ammenities of a home to come back to after sightseeing all day. Whether we were relaxing in the hot tub, watching tv in cool, comfortable living room or sitting around the kitchen table playing cards everyone was happy. There are only two things I would change. I recommend that the hard, wooden kitchen chairs have pads on them and also, the beds were uncomfortable.
Enjoyable time away

Staying in a cabin gives the advantage of being able to enjoy good meals without spending a fortune and to have the comforts of home when the daily outings are over. Belvedere was a pleasant get away. Cabin cleanliness was a little lacking - for example the kitchen floor needed better cleaning and the mop provided was to dirty to be much of a help. The cabin was supposed to be a non-smoking cabin but had very obviously been smoked in, with many cig butts laying out in the driveway and a dish in the living room that had been used as an ashtray. I informed management of this and they responded that they do have strict guidelines and penalties for violating their non smoking policy, nontheless this one seemed to have gotten by them. Having stated these things, it was still a wonderful time away which I would consider again if the price was right for us.

Very nice place, but we paved a lot of money for cleaning services but also had to clean a lot ourselves or would of been charged more. It's vacation, you are supposed to be relaxing not cleaning.

A great place for a family reunion during the holiday season.

The cabin was cozy, warm and comfortable for our large group and provide everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The location was great, but the road leading to the cabin at night is very dangerous. We really enjoyed having the hot tubs and the rocking chairs on the porches. The least favorite amenity was the plastic cover on our bed on the bottom floor, which I know is there for protection. There is so much to do in the area, but the traffic was horredous trying in get to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. I would definitely recommend Eden Crest if my friends were visited the area.
