Gorgeous View, Gorgeous Home, Beautiful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the best experience renting this beautiful cabin. The homeowner is as sweet as they come, and always available for any questions. The property offers the most gorgeous view of the mountains, and the cabin itself is very, very clean and comfortable! Even though the pool was closed since it is considered the "winter season" now, we were able to roast marshmallows in a fire we made and top the night off with a nice glass of wine in the hot tub. The cabin is very spacious, lots of privacy to the bedrooms each having their own bathroom. There is a game room on the 1st level and a fun loft on the 3rd. We had such a great experience, that we plan to try and re-book this property next fall.

Beautiful vacation house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting, the house has a wraparound deck, great place to sit and enjoy the views. The house was accommodating for large groups with each bedroom having there own private bathroom. The pool was an added bonus and the kids loved to jump in after a day of hiking to cool off. Hot tub in the evenings was a great way to end the day along with the fire pit. The owner was great to work with and responded to all our needs. I would highly recommend this house, very private yet close to the park and gatlinburg . The driveway is very steep although we had no problems. Wi-if is very slow, this is vacation so it was nice to put the phones and iPads away. One thing to mention is bring extra dish towels and sharp knives for cutting veggies. Kitchen was well stocked. Enjoy, our vacation ended way to soon.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at El Castillo. The beautiful log home's awesome wooded location, overlooking a quiet valley, is both scenic and tranquil. Our family and guests enjoyed the mountain views, comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms, hot tub and pool. The decks on all levels were most inviting. The owner was very accommodating which made our stay that much more pleasant. We spent a day in nearby Gatlinburg and rode the tram and chairlifts for great views of the Smoky Mountains. Our week was over way too soon.

This cabin is absolutely amazing! We took the whole family and had plenty room for everyone. The 2 year old all the way up to grandma had a blast. Secluded and private. Less than 10 minutes from the strip. Can't type enough on my iPhone to describe how great this place is!

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so perfect, it is hard to imagine. The pictures do not do it justice, it is totally spectacular, the rooms are all large even the kitchen and dining room. The pool was perfectly heated and the hot tub was great! It was only 5 miles from Gatlinburg from the main strip and just on the edge of Pigeon forge, a perfect location. I was concerned about the lack of reviews but was pleasantly surprised, so don't let that concern you!!!!!! This place is the BEST EVER! Arlene and Jean were a pleasure to work with, Thank you!

Its the best place to stay while on vacation. Its very beautiful. Pictures do not do this place justice. Its the prefect place if you are vacationing with kids or ageing parents. We had both and it was accommodating for all. We were here for a week and spent most of our time at the cabin just enjoying the surrounding and spending time as a family. We will be returning to the Great Smoky Mountains for future vacations and will be requesting this cabin for every trip. It is well worth the money and plus some. And thank you Mrs. Arlene for the great communication and interaction with everything. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE FOR YOUR VACATION!! A++
