About the property

3 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom Cabin At The Top Of The Smoky Mountains

** We also have a cabin next door if this one is booked or if you are looking for two!**

Welcome to the Rifugio, a new cabin built on the boundaries of Great Smoky Mountains National Park! It sits less than 15 minutes away from Ober and downtown Gatlinburg!

This cabin has all kinds of amenities to keep you entertained, from an indoor "endless" pool, sauna and workout equipment located at the bottom floor of the cabin, to a hot tub outside of the top floor. Other amenities include a pool table, poker table, arcade game, movie room and 3 spacious porches with mountain views! After you work up an appetite from all the activities, you will love too cook in the full size kitchen with all new modern appliances. You will have options to eat inside or outside on our family sized wood dining tables. Then you can head over to the living room and wind down on the cozy furniture (with a pullout couch) and enjoy the beautiful stone fireplace featuring a flat screen tv.

Upstairs, you will find two master suites with king beds with their own bathrooms dressed top to bottom with top of the line finishes. Also, you will find flat screen tv's, their own electric fireplaces, and shared porch with a hot tub. The bedroom in the basement also has a king bed and it's own bathroom, TV, and shares the space with the indoor endless pool. In the basement you will also find a theatre room and another pull out couch with a twin bed if another bedroom is needed.

This cabin atop the Great Smoky Mountains is the perfect vacation retreat for families and groups. We hope you will enjoy your mountain getaway with us!

About Lourienne Fedon Long

Hi everyone, my name is Lourienne and I am the owner's daughter. Myself along with my father Luigi and mother Regina are locals who decided to start a small family cabin business. We love our mountains and can't wait to share our two beautiful cabins with you!

Lourienne Fedon Long purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Lourienne Fedon Long chose Chalet Village

The cabin is brand new with top of the line finishes and the location is perfect- on top of the mountain away from the hustle and bustle but also a short drive down to the city center!

What makes this cabin unique

You will be supporting a local, family owned business.

Stunning, Superb, Best in the Smokies!!

  • 5 of 5

Your search is over, for you have found a little slice of paradise this side of heaven!!!!

This home, (and make NO mistake, it is not a house, it is a HOME, for the details and top of the line finishings throughout, were lovingly placed to make you feel like you have settled into your cozy, yet luxurious sanctuary,) is inviting in every sense of the word,starting with it's setting. It's close enough to Gatlinburg (without you ever feeling that you are anywhere near a city,) enabling you the benefits of nature and town life if you so choose.

You're nestled in the woods overlooking the mountains from the breathtaking views of the balconies, that also serve as the perfect perch for viewing wildlife, and if you love wildlife such as I do, you will not be disappointed.

This home was built with such loving detail and thought as to encompass the needs of those that inhabit her. My family and I were there while a tropical storm of rain pushed through and we didn't miss one beat of our vacation because everything we needed and could possible want were included in this home, such as a hot tub, a beautiful indoor pool, sauna, workout equipment,(all with a spectacular view of the woods I might add,) pool table, poker table, fire places and a media room complete with projection screen!!

The day it finally did clear up, we were so excited to get back to the house after a day on the trails, because we loved settling down and relaxing, because that's the kind of environment that this home creates and exudes.

It was also great to know that after a day in the mountains when you did make it home that you would be greeted with the most incredible showers complete with rainfall shower heads etc.., and the most incredibly comfortable beds and linens!!

If you choose to cook, like we did many meals, you will find it a pleasure, because every single thing you can think of that you might need and more is found in that well appointed, top of the line kitchen, but, the

absolute best thing about this home, is those that own it, and what an absolute pleasure they were to work with, and their thoughtfulness, and desire to please was duly noted and second to none!!

Do yourself the favor and rent this home!!

You will be soooooo incredibly glad you did!!

I know for one, that my family and I will be back many times to come and we will recommend this home and it's owners repeatedly throughout the years to come!!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spotless and spacious. I would HIGHLY recommend this cabin for anyone. Tons of space, everything you need is included. Awesome beds and linens, kitchenware, towels and gorgeous views. Our children had a blast playing in the indoor pool and with the arcade game. There is even food delivery available from local restaurants or it is just a short 15 minute ride down the mountain to Gatlinburg. This truly is a beautiful cabin and the owner is wonderful and very helpful. Our children are already planning another trip here and we just left yesterday.

Luxurious Cabin Stay

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is stunning with every high end finish imaginable. Our family of boys loved the indoor pool, the arcade game, and the pool table. The owner was very accommodating to our booking requests. While the cabin is located quite a ways up a steep mountain, there is a convenient and affordable service that will bring restaurant food to you. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and were very happy with this beautiful cabin.

Wonderful Luxury place

  • 5 of 5

Where do I begin....this place is exactly as described on the internet however the descriptions does not exactly it no justice! This place is amazing! Very clean, and up to date! Our stay included 3 adult couples and we all had our own space, full bathrooms and plenty of room!the basement room was our favorite bedroom! The fully equipped Kitchen is amazing with all new appliances!

The movie theater is wonderful but could use better sound (sound bar or speakers). It is located far up the mountains so it take so time to reach the cabin! However you will get use to it after a few times!

We actually got to see a bear! That was exciting!

Love the place we will definitely rent again! Also the owner Lourienne Fedon is a phone call or email away and she promptly responds!
