  • Very Nice Cabin

    "First let me say we REALLY enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The layout was great for our 3 families, the views were outstanding, and it was very peaceful and quiet. The wood construction is amazing and just like what you see in the pictures. 'The description says it is 20-25 minutes from Gatlinburg, and that is correct. After spending time in town, we really appreciated getting away from the crowds and traffic. As a heads up, the cabin is not quite as secluded as the pictures show. What you don't see is the cabin next door which is very close, or the two cabins immediately across the creek. On one of our nicer weather days, there was actually a lot of noise and activity in the creek. Nothing obnoxious, or even close, but while this cabin does in fact sit on 1 acre, it is built to one corner of the property so you end up being close to other cabins/people. Unfortunately for us, it rained 5 of 6 days we were there. Our 2nd day was Sunday and it stormed most of the afternoon. We noticed the cabin seemed pretty dark and realized there was a number (13) of missing or burned out light bulbs. I waited till Monday to call management. The lady I spoke to was incredibly nice and we had a great conversation. She mentioned she would send somebody out and asked me exactly what kind of bulbs were needed. In just a little time, the "cleaning lady" showed up with just 3 bulbs, and then moved working light bulbs around to try and make it lighter. We then thought maybe they would come back and replace the remainder of the missing bulbs. Nope. We ended up loosing another light or two, but didn't see anybody else for the rest of the week. Strange and somewhat frustrating for the price of the cabin. Also, the large back deck had a healthy dose of mold which became very slippery with all the rain! Lastly, the downstairs guest bathroom and the upstairs loft half bath had a horrible squeal/rattle/roar when you flushed. Somewhat disturbing in the middle of the night. Anyway, the cabin was very clean when we arrived, adequately equipped for our party of 8, and I would certainly consider returning to the property. If you are looking for seclusion away from the crowds, this is a very good place. I give it a very solid 4, and would easily exceed a "5" with a little simple maintenance and upkeep."

  • Great place.

    "I've used this lodge for two years in a row for our church youth group and have been impressed with everything about the lodge. From decoration and cleanliness to the communication with the owner, everything is beyond expectation. If you have a small group, it is hard to go wrong here. "

  • Fix the tub

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall, I loved the place, just that my daughter tried to take a bath, and there were multiple problems with it. The water would drain out, the shower hose with it leaked (or something - I can't remember). Not sure if the jets even worked. "
