About Edward Bates
We have completed a Revolutionary, 4-part business plan. Originally, we built these cabins 25 years ago and rented them for $99.00 a night. We quickly developed a loyal clientele who returned year-after-year and sometimes several times a year. We were packed. We then changed to a management company which raised the prices and added extra fees and we lost our loyal clientele from the '90s. Now, here's our Revolutionary, 4-Part Business Plan. First, we created a product that is much better than it was in the '90s. We completely restored the cabins to a condition even better than when they were new. Also, we reengineered the road to meet the highest city standards. Finally, we installed WIFI and 2-LED HDTVs in each cabin, one 50' in size. Second, we removed the trees in front and beside the cabins to create, arguably, the best 180 degree view of the Great Smoky Mountains anywhere. Third, we decided not to require that the guests put the typical $100.00-$500.00 security deposit, purchase $39.00 insurance policy, or even a submit a credit card number! Everything's on the honor system! That's why the final bill is so low. The honor system is working. Not one item has been stolen or broken! Finally, we made the most Revolutionary move. We fired our management company, listed our cabins with VRBO and slashed prices LOWER than in the '90s! Most nights are offered at $98.00! As a result, we have booked over 1,000 nights in the past 3 months and received over 80 5-Star Reviews! We are developing a new, loyal clientele that is already rebooking for next year. This allows us to spend less time marketing and more time continuing to improve the property to the highest standards possible. Our corporate mission is the same as the Apple and Disney Corporations: to offer a great product at a great price and make people happy. Our 40+ 5 Star Reviews and repeat clientele show that its working. Please join our family of friends who vacation with us over and over.
Edward Bates purchased this Cabin in 1992
Why Edward Bates chose Gatlinburg
The Great Smoky Mountains are our great love and passion. We believe you will fall in love with them too. The greatest compliment we have received on the property has come from about a dozen guests over the past three years who have asked, 'Is this a part of the National Park?' The boundary between our Property and the National Park is almost indistinguishable. The photos are real and untouched. Our forest appears to be contiguous with the National Park. We truly have one of the best views and one of the best locations in America.

Extremely close to the action of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge as well as the national park. Pictures don't do the view justice. Ed and Val would respond almost instantly to any question or request. The cabin itself was more than we could have asked for, especially for the price.
This isn't a negative, as it is mentioned in a lot of the reviews as well as the description but it does bare (bear? :) ) mentioning...The driveway to the cabin is definitely something to consider when renting the property. It is pretty steep and someone less comfortable with that terrain or a less powerful vehicle may have issue. Again, we had no issues in a standard "family suv" not even using 4wd, but I don't want someone to downvote this beautiful property for something that is mentioned fairly often. I saw Ed make it up in a standard sedan type vehicle, so please be fair in your ratings!
Very happy with our stay, very happy with the owners, very happy with our choice of vacation to the Smokies!
Beautiful, peaceful and rejuvenating!
Our stay was just lovely. The cabin is in a gorgeous area, very private and our check out time was pushed back a bit very graciously by the owners. I left with a plan to return for a much longer stretch in the future. Thank you for the experience!
Great location: a view & close to town
We loved the location because of the great view and how close it was to downtown Gatlinburg. The property was clean and it was easy to access at check-in. I’d recommend a 4WD vehicle for the road getting to the property.
Quiet place, very nice, stunning view of the mountains
Pleasant and wonderful experience. Will definitely rent again!
Excellent view and great cabin
We loved our stay at the Spectacular Vista Cabin. I had a few questions the first day about the surrounding area, and Edward was very prompt and helpful. The property is perfect and a very short drive from beautiful Gatlinburg and the National Park. My only wish is that we stayed longer than the two nights we booked as there is so much you can do in the area.
Great location, Great view!
The road to the cabin is a little rough, overall we have a great time and enjoyed ourselves.
