The 5 Most Beautiful Views in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

May 29, 2015

The Great Smoky Mountains are well known for some of the most stunning mountain views that stretch for miles. Experience elevated beauty at the greatest of lengths and stay in the middle of it all in one of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals. Enjoy sights once only seen by the native people of the Eastern Appalachian region. One look is all it will take to bring you "home".

Clingmans Dome

Clingmans Dome is unlike any other obtainable view. The observatory peeks out high and proud above the highest brim of trees, resting at 6,643 feet high. The Dome is the highest point of elevation in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and is a prized possession to the park. Views from Clingmans Dome are vast, spreading out over 100 miles of visibility and on the clearest of days you can see clear across 7 connecting states!

Back Deck Views from Our Gatlinburg cabin rentalscabin mountain view

One of the most spectacular views you can experience is right there in the "back yard" of one of our Gatlinburg cabin rentals. You are sure to become one with the paint splash of colors that will encompass the sky as a Smoky Mountain sunset lowers right before your very eyes.

Mt. LeConte

Mt. LeConte is a desirable atmosphere for the adventurer. LeConte is one of the most sought after areas considering the amount of history you walk through to get to the panoramas. There are several vantage points on your way to the top, with desirable names such as Inspiration Point, Myrtle Point and The Eye of the Needle. What's in a name, right? Well, an awful lot! Feast your eyes on all the mountain has to offer you.

Bluff Mountain

Bluff Mountain is a local favorite thriving with some of the best views in town. Bluff Mountain has a crooked peak giving it an artistic street view during twilight. Atop the mountain, you will find several pull-offs with a rocky ledge perfect for sitting. Creep out onto the rock formations and breathe it all in slowly. Watching the sky from here is interesting because the angle at which the sun hits the ridges gives curvature and texture mimicking brushstrokes over the hills and valleys. If you stay to watch the sun go down, do not look away. The sun fades directly into the center of the mountains like a melting yolk, so beautiful.

The Overlook

The Overlook is a communal gathering place to look out into the distance in Gatlinburg. You can see far out at Mt. Leconte or adjust your eyes downward and see the bustle of downtown Gatlinburg. On a clear day, you can even see closely where the tree lines begin to bare due to elevation restricting the growth of the pine.

If you have a soft spot for the open air, visit the Smoky Mountains and stay in one of our Gatlinburg cabins and experience the magic that one can only feel here.
