Believe it or not, ‘The View’ is not an overconfident name. The Smoky Mountain cabin that bears it offers just that: an unbelievable, unobstructed view of the valley below. The best place to see it? The second-story deck, or on the screened porch while preparing dinner on its wood-burning stove and gas grill. The house itself is nothing to sneeze at either, thanks to the handmade log furniture and plasma TVs.

Fog rises amid the blue Smoky Mountains just after sunset with the sky still tinged purple in the distance. On the cabin's patio, a bottle of red wine and two glasses await, adding to the air of romance.

And this rental is just as good for the fam as it is for a couple—and as a bonus, you can even bring the family pooch, thanks to the enclosed dog run and dog house.
