The custom 12" D-Log Eastern white pine Cloud 9 cabin, positioned on one of the highest peaks in Gatlinburg, has a 360-degree view encompassing landmarks like Mt. LeConte, Ober Gatlinburg and Clingman’s Dome. It was designed as a replica of a splendid long-leaf pine cabin built in the 1980s that was one of the 2,460 structures engulfed by the November 2016 wildfires that also took 14 lives and caused $500 million in damage. Cloud 9 is the home away from home for Danny and Tia Suiter. Tia acted as interior designer for the cabin, creating a distinctive character for each room by combining vintage and handmade pieces with interesting wall treatments. At nearly 5,000 square feet on three floors, the six-bedroom D-log cabin sleeps 18.

The Suiters have designated the three levels as Mountain Base, Mountain Middle and Mountain Top. Each bedroom is named for an historic or natural site in the surrounding mountains, with wall treatments, art, antiques, decor, lighting, linens, curtains and rugs chosen to enhance each theme. The cabin’s exterior features are as welcoming as those inside and include multiple patios, covered porches, dining areas and an eight-person hot tub. The grounds are landscaped with plants and rocks native to the area, while metal silhouettes and carved wood statues of the indigenous black bear welcome visitors. The site is designed so that seven cars can be parked logically surrounding the house. When the original cabin burned, the Suiters could not locate plans, so Honest Abe designer Michael Hix used old tourism photos and what was left of the foundation to replicate the structure that was meaningful to decades of families and couples who had observed special occasions in the cabin. When the Suiters are not escaping there together or vacationing at Cloud 9 with friends or family, the home is available for rental.

Second level: to two master suites with private decks, the second level has two living rooms with natural stone fireplaces, an indoor dining area that seats 14, a gourmet kitchen complete with a wine refrigerator and an outdoor dining space for six and a gas grill. Floor-to-ceiling windows and vaulted ceiling. The third floor loft: cathedral ceiling, double glass sliding doors. Outdoor living: luxurious eight-person outdoor jacuzzi and a furnished covered patio with a television mounted over a wood-burning fireplace of real mountain river stone under a cathedral ceiling. Floors: all are waterproof and scratch-proof vinyl in rich wood tones that simulate wide, hand sawn wooden planks. Wall: every interior wall is log, some with special treatments like cork, tree bark or tinted stain.
