About the property

Custom Cabin built in 2017 w/ Two King Master Suites, Hot Tub, Grill Area, Wi-Fi

Visit our other 5 star cabins at VRBO #465185 and # 565285!

Newly built in 2017, this amazing mountain retreat is a perfect mountain getaway! Enjoy your honeymoon, anniversary, birthday or a relaxing family getaway! Suitable for children ages 8 and older.

Ideal Location -

The Good Life is located between downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Less than a 10 minute drive to either, this is an ideal location if you plan on visiting the park, hiking, checking out the local restaurants or walking down the Gatlinburg strip.

Custom designed, this luxury cabin offers cathedral ceilings, large 6 foot picture windows to maximize the amazing views, hickory hardwood throughout, a spacious kitchen with oak cabinets, granite and a stone fireplace.

Two Master Suites -

Perfect for single couples, double couples or small families, The Good Life was built with two private, closed room king suites, one upstairs and one downstairs. Both master bedrooms offer private full bathrooms and beautiful Ski mountain views along with custom made cedar furniture, a king gel/memory mattress, LG smart HDTV, a cabinet dresser and a closet.

The Deck -

The large covered deck faces Mt Le Conte and offers spectacular views. Sit back in the Adirondack rockers or soak in the new Viking Spa. This is one of the best seats in the house!

Entertainment amenities include:

**NEW...unlimited high speed "indoor/outdoor" Wi-Fi** (2G for outside devices & 5G for high speed inside use) The living room offers a 55 in LG smart HDTV with an expanded Charter package and includes sports and movie channels.

Our mattress selection -

Mattress selection was one of the top priorities when rebuilding our cabin. Many guests have said they appreciate the luxury our mattress selection has to offer and we found a truly amazing mattress by M-Lily. Unlike most mattress materials, the M-Lily is free from mercury, lead, formaldehyde and chlorine, considered toxic. The M-Lily is made with naturally occurring materials like aloe, bamboo, silk and plant oils (like castor seeds). Safe & comfortable, you will rest easy on this dream mattress!

Custom Outdoor Area!

The cabin would not be complete without our one-of-a-kind grill & picnic area. Follow the sculpted rock walk way down to the grill area which includes a picnic table with umbrella, park style charcoal grill and a couple's Adirondack swing, all with a beautiful mountain view. One flip of a switch will illuminate the grill area with evening LED lights. Come enjoy this truly unique experience!

Suitable for children ages 8 years and older.

The Good Life is a non smoking and non pet/animal property.

Welcoming Cabin with Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to spend a fun and relaxing vacation! The cabin is very clean with 2 master bedrooms providing privacy for all. The views are amazing with quick, easy access to both downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Angela & Mike provided very quick response to all of our questions, and check-in and out was very easy.

We will definitely stay at Angela & Mike's properties in the near future!

The Good Life Cabin - WOW!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at The Good Life in June of 2018 and all we can say is WOW! What a beautiful and very clean cabin. Mike and Angela were fantastic from the day we booked it to the day we arrived home from our vacation. We were so impressed that we already booked our stay for next year. The only disappointment we had we missed seeing a bear by 15 minutes. This was our 4th time in Gatlinburg and we have stayed at 4 different cabins. Our future stays will now be with the cabins owned by Mike and Angela. Thank you again!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit, the cabin was everything it was described to be and the views were spectacular! Close to Downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Everything you needed to be in the comfort of your own home was provided at the cabin. We even had a bear come visit us a few times. Definitely plan on visiting The Good Life again.

My wife and I have been Vacationing in the Smokey Mountains Since 2014. We have always had a great experience. With that being said we did not think the rentals we stayed at previously could be outdone, well we were wrong.

This rental (The good life) had EVERYTHING you could think of.. All we had to do was buy groceries. Every Utensil, pot and pans, two types of coffee makers and a tea pot :) Tell we like coffee :) The bedrooms had spacious closets and the Laundry room was just like home. I could go on and on , but I think you get the picture :) When my wife and I visit we will be staying here. Also the owners are friendly! oh one more thing I have to mention -- You know when you stay at a rental you spend about 15 min searching the rental to familiarize yourself with where everything is? Well not here - Everything and I mean everything is labeled for you. OK I thought I was done , however I do have to mention I loved that the DVD playing had Netflix options. I was able to binge watch my favorite shows.

Great place to stay ! Thanks
