"I rented this cabin for a Girls' Getaway weekend and it could not have been more perfect. The layout of the cabin is perfect for such an occasion, and the cabin location is great--not too far from the main strip in Gatlinburg, but far enough away to be peaceful. The price is VERY reasonable. I have stayed in many cabins in Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge and this one has BY FAR the best view I have EVER had. The cabin was very clean and decorated nicely. The beautiful paintings by the owner herself did not go unnoticed! The beds were comfortable. We did not use the hot tub, but the pool table was in good shape, which isn't always the case in a rental cabin. Everything was just perfect, but the most superb aspect of our stay in this cabin was the helpfulness of the owner. A couple of days before our stay a big snow occurred. It was questionable as to whether or not we'd be able to get to the cabin. Mary went above and beyond in her communication to us about the road conditions, even keeping us updated via text while we were en route. Right before our arrival she sent someone to shovel and de-ice the driveway so that we would be sure to have a safe place to park and get our luggage in. Even sent us pictures so we knew what to expect! We were all very pleased with her desire to make sure our stay went well and I would definitely rent this cabin again in the future!"

"We've rented a lot of cabins in the Smokies over the years. Most of them look a little tired but are still OK. Sunset Lodge, though not huge, was by far the nicest one we've ever stayed in. The extra decorating touches the owners have put into this cabin give it such a homey feeling. We also prefer to rent directly from the owner rather than property management companies. We didn't go to do all the tourist stuff. We went to spend time together as a family over Thanksgiving, hit some of our favorite spots and just relax so we spent a lot of time cooking, relaxing in the hot tub, watching football etc.
It snowed a little on Thanksgiving Day which we loved. The beds were ultra comfortable. My little dog was even comfortable (we never left her alone though.). Wifi worked great as did cable TV. Nothing like snuggling up to the gas fireplace, watching the Macy's Day parade with a turkey in the oven and the scenery of the Smokies. It was a little hard to find after dark and our GPS's tended to disagree but we always found it eventually. There are some steep roads in that area. I recommend coming in during daylight the first time.
I hope we can go and stay there again on our next trip. Thank you Carolyn for the swift email responses and hospitality. You're very fortunate to have such a lovely vacation home."

"My family (my husband, sons-7 and 4 years old-and I) LOVED the Sugar Shack! It was close enough to the parkway and Park that it made getting out and exploring easy...it made getting home and relaxing on the beautiful deck even easier! We didn't cook much (except to use the toaster and microwave) but it is set up nicely (still bummed we never barbecued, but we wanted to try the local restaurants!). Thanks for sharing your great property with my family! We had a great time!"
