For more fun, venture to the rec room to shoot pool, mix cocktails at the wet bar with a wine fridge, and kick back in the sitting space with another big-screen TV. Or plan a big movie night in the private home theater that boasts a huge TV, Blu-ray player, and theater-style seats. On the 2 spacious decks, you can take a closer look at the downrange mountain views stretching to Douglas Lake! Soak in the steamy hot tub, hang out in the outdoor lounge that features a big screen TV and a fireplace, play foosball, and sway in the rockers with a cup of tea or a jar of Ole Smoky Moonshine

After a full day of fun in the Smokies, retreat to your king suite for the evening to rest and recharge. Each bedroom at Looking Glass features custom furniture, a king-size bed, a ceiling fan, seating, a big-screen TV, an electric (heated) fireplace, and scenic views of the Great Smoky Mountains!

Living Room
It’s always nice to retreat to a cozy and inviting space after exploring Ripley’s Aquarium, riding horses in the national park, or shopping along the Parkway in Gatlinburg. The living room at Looking Glass is open concept and features a cozy area rug, a stacked stone (gas) fireplace, a big-screen TV, 2 plump sofas, a beautifully crafted coffee table, and windows streaming views of the mountains. 

Cuddle with your spouse and enjoy a glass of wine by a crackling fire. Place drinks and snacks on the coffee table while chatting with your best friends. Switch on the TV to entertain for a while. Read a good book every evening. And convene on the sofas to make plans for the day with piping cups of joe. The living room is a great space to relax, catch up, and take it easy on vacation. 

Sleek with stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, and a great island with a large sink and bar seating, the kitchen at Looking Glass is fully equipped with everything you need to cook in the comfort of your cabin in Gatlinburg. Yes, pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cutlery, mugs, and more are provided. But the best part of this kitchen has to be the wall of windows framing incredible Smoky Mountain scenery while you prep and serve meals, snacks, and drinks throughout your stay. Chefs in your group will dig it! 

Dining Area
When you’ve prepared a homemade meal for dinner, freshly baked cookies to pair with a cup of coffee, or midnight margaritas for a party in the Smokies, set the dining tables to enjoy together. The main dining space is just off the kitchen right in front of the towering windows framing the remarkable mountains and reaching the sky. The lovely wooden table is long and boasts chairs and benches to make room for everyone.

You can shoot pool with friends, fix tailored cocktails for your group, watch entertainment, and just hang out together.

Making memories together at the cabin or in downtown Gatlinburg is wonderful. However, you’ll appreciate a private space to retreat as needed throughout the day and every night.

On the main deck, sway in the rockers every morning with your first mug of coffee and be entranced by the dazzling morning hues across the mountain range.

On the lower-level deck, you can start a Smoky cookout with burgers, veggies, or steaks sizzling on the built-in grill space with countertops.

The cabin is beautiful

October 2023

The cabin is beautiful. Nicely furnished and great for a larger group. Parking was ample and the living/dining/kitchen space is set up for easy interaction with the group. A few things to note: Many of the dishes that were in the cupboards were dirty (didn’t look like they were well cleaned); some of the blankets smelled a bit “off” as if they needed to be washed. Overall, a great stay–just would like a bit more attention to detail on cleanliness.

This cabin was awesome!
