In 2011 we were in the right place and at the right time to be able to purchase and empty lot across from our other cabin - 'Blue Mountain Lodge". We have been eyeing this lot for years knowing it will have a mountain view. few years went by as we thought we may never be able to build our dream mountain home on the lot as new construction was so expensive. Nevertheless, we bought architectural software and proceeded to dream, design, draw and redraw plans until we had it exactly right and we could even see 3D design of our future cabin. We had to have exposed Douglas fir beams, wall of windows for the view, tall ceilings and superior energy efficiency. When we were ready to turn our plans to log home supplier, all their architect had to do is to make our plans official. In November of 2016, after years of diligently saving and planning, we were able to finally to break ground on the new build.

If you are looking for spacious, unique, out-of-the-ordinary luxury mountain cabin in the Smokies, you just found one! It took us 3 years of dreaming, planning and designing, and 2 more years of construction to bring our vision to life, and this was proverbial “labor of love”! Whether you want to bring family and friends, have couples retreat or even a family reunion - this 5-bedroom mountain home is sure to please.

Just one look at Ridge View Lodge and you will see what makes it one-of-a-kind. From stunning mountain architecture, to abundance of space, to high end design and finishes, you will not be disappointed, whether inside or outside. Ridge View lodge offers abundant common spaces and yet plenty of separation so that several families or couples can have privacy yet still share the amenities.​

If star gazing with a glass of wine is your thing - we’ve got a large deck with rockers for that. Sit out on covered side porches and you will feel like you are in a treehouse because cabin is set on a hill with a commanding view of the mountain ridges and wooded surroundings.

Movies or watching TV are your thing? There are TVs in every room of the house, several with Blu-Ray players and game ports. Love games? We’ve got that too – from cocktail-style 2-player arcade with all the favorite 80s classic games (Packman and Centipede anyone?), to pool table and Foosball, we’ve got you covered! Moms and Dads can relax – youngsters will find plenty to keep them occupied.

Starting with the main floor great room you will find soaring timber frame ceilings that are sure to impress. Gather around the huge farm-style dining table handcrafted from rough sawn cedar and enjoy the mountain ridge views through the wall of windows. The front “prow” of the cabin was designed to maximize the view and on a clear day you can see Mt. LeConte at a distance. Comfy leather sofas are great for watching a movie on UHD TV, or just to enjoy a conversation or play a game by the warmth of the fireplace.

Open-concept kitchen with tall soft-close cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless appliances and an island clad in reclaimed wood blends modern convenience with a rustic touch. The island seats four and is a great compliment to the adjacent dining area that seats 12. Whether you want to cook your feast from scratch or just microwave-and-go, you will find everything you need.

Main floor king master features skip-planed pine log bed with comfy memory foam mattress, and master closet. Large private bath has a separate shower and a jetted tub. We cannot help but mention reclaimed wood vanity (hand crafted by owners!) with two vessel sinks and unique counter-top decorated with fall leaves gathered on the property. Rustic barn door to the bathroom adds character and texture. Heated bathroom floors (in the winter) feel oh-so-good!

Enter the upper level, and you will be in the loft overlooking the mountain ridge. There you find a 7’ pool table made by a local craftsman with reclaimed beams. Enjoy a beverage sitting down at a reclaimed wood pub table accented by Mason jar lights, and watch others play... or just gaze through the picture window at the beautiful mountain surroundings.

The upper level has a king bedroom that showcases rustic charm with its live edge cypress headboard, “Ole Smoky Moonshine” mason jar night lights, barn-style closet door handmade by the owners and a restored antique dresser.

The upper level queen bedroom is furnished with rustic aspen log bed, cushy memory foam mattress plus a twin daybed – a retreat that can accommodate a small family.

Upper level bathroom features a walk-in shower and a reclaimed wood double vanity, also lovingly hand crafted by the owners. Heated floors in winter add a touch of welcome warmth.

The lower level of Ridge View Lodge features family/media room with a 70” 4K UHD TV, 2-player arcade, and foosball table plus comfy sectional seating and gas log fireplace for those cool nights. Adjacent kitchenette has a full-size refrigerator, sink, and microwave for our guest’s convenience – be it popcorn, glass of water or a late-night snack.

Down the hallway from the media room there is a queen bedroom and a bunk-room with two twin-over-twin log bunk beds. The queen bedroom is furnished with rustic log bed, comfy memory foam mattress plus a twin daybed – a retreat that can accommodate a small family. In addition to a TV in the bunk-room, there is a game port and Blu-ray player to entertain the younger guests. Spacious bathroom with reclaimed wood hand crafted double vanity, tub and of course, heated floors (winter) rounds out the lower level space.

Outdoor spaces at Ridge View Lodge are just as guest-friendly. The side yard has enough room to play. At the very back there is a stacked stone firepit with ample seating overlooking the view. Relax by the fire pit, roast marshmallows or just watch the dancing fire under the stars. Charcoal grill and picnic tables on a patio make your cook outs a breeze. A 6-person hot tub on the patio is there for you to relax your tired muscles after a day of exploring all that Great Smoky Mountains have to offer.

Since sound carries so far in the mountains, please be respectful of others and keep noise levels down when enjoying amenities outside after 10PM.

We hope that you will make wonderful memories staying at Ridge View Lodge and treat it with care and respect that this unique mountain cabin deserves!

We are a professional couple which loves being "away from it all", the mountains, the climate and nature of the East Tennessee. We are avid DIYers, and our cabins have become our passion. Rest assured that you will be dealing directly with us, the owners! We do not give up our responsibilities to some "property management" company; we are not a mega rental corporation with hundreds of listings and remote staff who answers the phones but knows little about the properties they advertise. We know the area, we know our cabins, we love staying in them, and, admittedly, a little proud of them too.
​​We plan to eventually retire and move to Sevier County permanently and live in one of our cabins. For now, we make our cabins available to rent to our guests. We hope that our guests will appreciate our cabins and make wonderful memories in the Smokies for years to come.
