Located adjacent to Kear's Mountain Magic, this home is great for couples wanting to vacation together but retain separate accommodations.

The Kear family built this cabin on their family ridge in order to share part of their Smoky Mountain heritage with everyone. From here almost the Tennessee side of the Smoky Mountains can be seen, stretching from Mount Cammerer in Cosby , TN to Mount Harrison (Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort)/ Cove Mountain in Gatlinburg , TN. This authentic one bedroom log home is constructed of hand hewn pine logs. This level of thoughtful attention extends both inside and out. Once inside, you'll immediately appreciate the added intimacy of the open floor plan and added charm of the naturally finished wood surfaces that extend from top to bottom. A vaulted ceiling with plenty of windows lining the front of the home creates a cheery living space. In the rear of the home there is a fully furnished kitchen and a dining table perfect for 2. The home is furnished with a full bath. Outside on the deck is where you'll find the hot tub and the spectacular Smoky Mountain views this home has to offer. There are dual privacy screens here to make you feel more at ease. Back inside, the home's king size bed awaits with a gas fireplace right at your feet. Nearby is the home's heart-shaped Jacuzzi, a perfect spot for a soothing evening alone or with someone special. In between these two spaces is the sofa and TV which features satellite and has a VCR. There's also a stack washer/dryer for you convenience.

The natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains awaits you at this elegant log cabin retreat. Call or click for reservations today.

My husband and I fell upon mountain rentals of Gatlinburg while finding a weekend get away. We loved the fact that it was keyless entry we got there late but when we showed up no problems getting in and the hot tub ws perfect after a long drive from Indiana. The bed is huge and comfortable, the fireplace was wonderful. The View from this cabin is breath taking I couldn't get enough of it. The cabin was clean, we didn't use the bathtub but the water and pressure in the shower was great. The only two things with the cabin was the décor and bedding could be update (but that isn't a big issue) and make sure all the tree branches are trimmed there wasn't many and didn't really get in the way of the view but that was feb of 2013. All in all our weekend get away was wonderful and we are looking to go back this feb and spending a whole week and using a different cabin and hoping it is just as wonderful as this one!

Kears Mtn Splendor
by Renee from St Joseph, IL

This was our third stay with Mountain Rentals; our second stay at this cabin. Just waking in the cabin door gives a feeling of relaxation. Super clean, well stocked, wonderful view of the Lord's beautiful creation. Hot tub is perfect. Far enough from the city to unwind but close enough for shows, shopping and site seeing. We hope to return annually.

Amazing view!
by Samantha from buffalo grove, IL

I had stayed in Gatlinburg previously but I did not have a view like this. The cabin was perfect for us as a couple , and I would highly recommend it. The people at mountain chalets were amazing, super helpful and friendly. I have recommended this place to so many people already!

anniversary getaway
by Renee from St Joseph, IL

cabin was nicely appointed. romantic with fireplace and hottub. beautiful mountain view.

Beautiful! Great place to getaway
by Melissa from brandon, FL

The view is amazing! Everything was very clean and organized. Fully stocked. The hot tub was perfect and already warm. It was very comfortable, truly a home away from home! The drive UP the one lane mountain was quite terrifying for this Florida girl. I would definitely stay here again! My hubby and I did not want to leave, can't wait to go back!

Great Vacation
by Jerrald from West Lafayette, IN

We always have a great time in Gatlinburg. The only problem we had this time was the raccoons would knock over our trash daily and scatter it everywhere. And we even had one climb onto the deck and walk past us while we were in the hottub. Now that was the true Great Smokey Mountain experience.


Love these Cabins, great view, terrific for a romantic getaway. Turn off the air conditioner and open up the windows if weather permits to hear the soothing sounds of the woods. Can't wait to go back!!

Great Stay!
by Rodney from Five Points, AL

My spouse and I had a wonderful Vacation in Gatlinburg. Our Cabin was Clean, Cozy & Romantic. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a comfortable stay. Would recommend Kear's Mountain Splendor for a Honeymoon or a Romantic Get-a-way!

Great Cozy Getaway
by Derek from Newport, KY

This cabin was perfect for a nice getaway with the lady. Woke up every morning to a beautiful mountain view. The amenities were perfect for the 2 of us and we would definitely stay again. Overall great vacation. 2 thumbs up

Incredible experience!
by LEE from SMYRNA, TN

We had a 5 night stay for our 10th wedding anniversary at Kear's Mountain Splendor in May. What a great cabin and view of the mountains and trees! And the staff at Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg was so helpful as we actually had booked another cabin and switched, and then added more days. And a great deal on the cabin itself! We hope to be back sometime soon!

Perfect As Always
by Jerrald from West Lafayette, IN

We have rented from MRG several times and as always, we had a blast. Just remember you are in the Great Smokey Mountains and there are bugs. We had our morning coffee on the deck in the rocking chairs watching the sun rise and in the hottub with our evening beverages watching it set. We grilled out every night and had everything we needed to cook a great breakfast inside. The cabin is comfy and a perfect place for a hard working couple to unwind. THANKS MRG

Great Trip!
by Andrew from Covington, KY

The chalet had a great view which really set the tone for the trip. It was close to many hiking trails and the hot tub was great for soothing tired muscles afterwards.

Our Mountain Splendor Experience
by Christina from Kingsport, TN

We had a wonderful time with a beautiful view. The cabin was cleaner than any hotel we've ever stayed in and much more cozy! We would recommend Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg to anyone looking for a romantic getaway.

Very Enjoyable!
by Bryan from Hermitage, TN

Excellent Customer Service, will stay again.

Portland, TN
by Julia from Portland , TN

This cabin was average. The hot tub on the balcony was not the cleanest. There was only one setting for the hot tub jets (high). The jacuzzi tub inside leaked and we had to keep adding water every few minutes. The view was excellent and the cabin was very cozy. It just didn't compare to what we have stayed in before.

Management Reply: I have contacted Maintenance regarding the Hot Tub and Jacuzzi. Please do not hesitate to call us anytime you have a problem.

Kear's Mountain Splendor is an excellent cabin for a couple's weekend getaway. It is cozy and comfortable with an awesome view of the mountains. You have lots of privacy in a beautiful and peaceful setting. We would definitely stay in this cabin again.

Mountain Splendor
by Anthony from New Palestine, IN

Great cabin with a great view of Mt. Leconte. As always I received prompt, courteous service from the staff. I would highly recommend renting a cabin from Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg.

Want to see heaven...
by Kevin & Dawn from Lebanon, TN

The weekend we spent in the cabin was amazing! The view of the mountains breath taking the first day & stunning the 2nd when it snowed! We are def coming back to this cabin & we're going to have more time to just sit and watch heaven as it unfolds around us in all her majesty! We highly recommend watching the sun set & rise while relaxing in the hot tub... it doesn't get much better then warm gentle waves of lapping bubbles all around you while listening to the peace & tranquility of the Smokey's. The cabin was so much more then what we expected! It was like home away from home but with none of the stress! Curling up in front of the fire & listening to the wood crackle was perfect -- we didn't want to come home! Make time for getting away & this slice of heaven will keep you coming back --- promise!

by Billy from Carthage,

Cabin was clean and well furnished, although the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Staff was prompt and courteous. I will definitely rent through Mountain Chalets again.
