5 bedroom Gatlinburg cabin, winter day
Ridge View Lodge – early December morning As seen from Blue Mountain Lodge. Exterior is complete
 
Ridge View Lodge will be a “sister property” to Blue Mountain Lodge, located higher up the same street as Blue Mountain Lodge. It is a totally custom designed hybrid log and heavy timber mountain home.
 

It took us about 3 years of drawing plans, trying out ideas, and verifying every little detail before we took the plans to the architects to be finalized.

Whether your idea of a dream vacation is to “hide away” with family & friends, or to enjoy the many area activities & sites, come to Ridge View Lodge and find it all!

Please know that Ridge View Lodge is not a company owned rental business, but rather a family owned dream vacation home. We have lovingly designed and built Ridge View Lodge to the highest standard. We have also hand-made or restored many of the furniture and decor pieces in the cabin, adding our unique personal touch: beds, tables, barn doors, vanities. It was truly a labor of love.

We hope that you will cherish your time at Ridge View Lodge as much as we do and treat it with care and respect it deserves.

Why Ridge View Lodge?

We loved the location of Blue Mountain Lodge, so when we found out that lot across the street with the view of Mt.LeConte was in foreclosure, we jumped at the chance to own it and made an offer to the bank. At the time we did not know whether we would ever have the financial ability to build our dream mountain home on that lot. We remained positive and made and refined our plans until the day we were finally ready to sign the contracts. We broke the ground in November of 2016, just before the Gatlinburg wildfires. We were so fortunate that Gatlinburg wildfires have not affected the immediate area of Ridge View Lodge and Blue Mountain Lodge and that we could press on with construction, plus help provide local jobs. We hope that the end result will be what we wanted it to be – a fantastic, top-of-the-line mountain cabin that your family and friends will love to call “home” during your Smoky Mountains vacation and won’t ever want to leave – you can be the judge!! Lots to do in the Tennessee Smokies, from hiking, to white water rafting, to fine dining and live shows, to horseback riding and Go-Karts. Our cabins are conveniently located with easy access to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We know that this area can entertain virtually any family for years to come…

Unique benefits:

Ridge View Lodge offers semi-private location, on a quiet street with no “cookie-cutter” cabins around like ones seen in some “resorts”. It is set on an ample lot with plenty of nature around, yet allows easy access by paved roads to all the area attractions, places to see and things to do. We say that is is “Away from it all, but close to everything” – best of both worlds. Ridge View Lodge also has plenty of indoor and outdoor space to accommodate large groups, plethora of amenities, and high quality finishes inside and out. The cabin is in the general vicinity of Arts & Crafts District – a quaint area with lots of small family-run artisan shops; you don’t even have to buy, just go in and chat with the kind folks – they are very friendly people. There is easy access to Pigeon Forge as well! We take pride in our beloved cabin and strive to help families create wonderful memories to last a lifetime while staying at Ridge View Lodge. What’s more, large groups may be able to reserve both Ridge View Lodge and Blue Mountain Lodge at the same time (based on availability, subject to approval) to accommodate larger family groups. Please know we will do everything possible to make sure you have a great vacation in the Smokies!
