"We were two families from London, England on a 3 week US Road Trip. From Atlanta to Orlando via Smoky Mountains, Nashville, Memphis, Natchez, New Orleans and Destin. We had a great trip, and the stay in Once Upon a View in the Smoky Mountains was one of the highlights. The cabin was wonderful. Lovely views of the mountains; very spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed sitting on the back deck with a cold beer soaking up the mountain views. Also loved the cinema room in the basement."
