Why janice mckinyon chose East

I choose this location because of the convenience to all the area locations. i love the being away from everything in the quiet peaceful surroundings. you actually have bears come out sometime in the afternoon in search of food. they don't bother anyone and nobody advances on the bear in anyway , but you can get some good pictures. i did get a great picture of the bear looking in the big dumpster as you come in. this area is fantastic and i feel so at peace when i am here. i would recommend it to anyone.

What makes this cabin unique

THE QUIET PEACEFUL SETTING AND SO CLOSE TO THE POOL. CONVENIENT TO DOWNTOWN GATLINBURG, HIKING TRAILS THE TROLLEY THAT GOES ANYWHERE AND BRINGS YOU BACK FOR ONLY 50 CENTS ONE WAY. GROCERY STORE AND GAS STATION CLOSE BY. THE ARTS AND CRAFTS COMMUNITY RIGHT DOWN THE STREET.

Little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience staying in this studio style cabin. Janice, the owner was very detailed from the minute we rented the cabin until the day we checked out. You will love this cabin. The inside is decorated so cute with all kinds of Northwoods type deco and furniture. There is a fabulous hot tub outside on your own private balcony. The cabin includes everything you need from a full kitchen, towels, TV, Wi-Fi, Jacuzzi, and more. BONUS: We even saw a bear walking near the pool the day we arrived! Grocery store and restaurant close by. Downtown is just a short 10 minute drive.

Owner's Response: I AM SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU ENJOYED THE CABIN AS MUCH AS YOU DID. I HAVE ALSO BEEN UP THERE AND THE BEAR CAME UP ON THE PORCH. HE OR SHE DID NOT ACT UP. THEY WERE JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO EAT. HOPE TO GET TO WORK WITH YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE. GOD BLESS. I LOVE WONDERFUL PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented from Janice. We couldn't have asked for a cleaner cabin or a more gracious host. She made sure the cabin was very clean and ready for us well in advance of our arrival. The bed was comfortable and all the linens were clean. The cabin is close to everything you want to take in while in the Smokies. We had a great time!

Don't let that one bad review sway you! It was a truly great place!

Gatlinburg was great, the cabin wasn't what we expected

  • 1 of 5

Rented this cabin for a short get away. We were very excited for the opportunity to hike the smokys and this cabin was a great location from Gatlinburg and major hiking trails. There were quite a few things that needed attention in this cabin. We had to clean out the bathroom tub drain prior to use due to back up and spiders...yuck. Bathroom sink faucet didn't have an aerator and sprayed water everywhere with use. The toilet seat was not installed properly and was unusable by end of trip. The large indoor tub had a gaping hole under the faucet like the overflow censor was missing. The back deck door wouldn't lock without force. Significant spider webs behind headboard producing lots of bites. The hot tub control panel was not working and many of the jets were broken. We chose to not contact the owner, because we felt these were minor issues and the cabin was simply a place to rest. Upon leaving the cabin we were notified that we were charged for breaking the toilet seat. I contacted Janice to notify her that it was broken upon arrival and invited her to discuss the matter further. I received the nastiest phone call of my life from the owner. Upon answering the phone she was screaming at me that I was robbing her and not taking responsibility for our actions. She stated that she cleans the cabin herself (so, make sure you don't tip "Chloe" the "cleaning women" like we did). She compared our "behavior" equivalent to renters who stole items from her. She expressed that she had never had a renter go a single day without some kind of complaint let alone 5 like we did. Janice then went on to call our family who graciously funded our trip and screamed at them. Please be wary of dealing with this property owner. This is not the first review claiming she harassed her renters.

Owner's Response: I HAVE BEEN RENTING THIS CABIN SINCE 2005 AND I HAVE ALWAYS ALLOWED PARENTS TO RENT THIS ADORABLE LITTLE CABIN FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO COME IN AND STAY. THIS COUPLE WERE THE WORST I HAVE EVER HAD AND THEREFORE WILL NEVER ALLOW ANOTHER PARENT TO RENT FOR THEIR CHILDREN. I DO NOT CLEAN MY CABIN, BUT I DO GO UP AND INSPECT THE CABIN AFTER EVERY STAY. THIS CABIN WAS SO TRASHED AND LEFT SO BAD THAT WHEN I TOLD THE MOM THAT I FOUND MY COMODE SEAT BUSTED AND THE BACK DOOR KNOB WAS BROKEN. DISHES SETTING AROUND WITH FOOD ALL OVER THEM AND THEY COULD NOT EVEN PUSH A START BUTTON ON A DISH WASHER. THIS COUPLE WILL NEVER FIND ANOTHER CABIN AS GREAT AS THIS ONE AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ANY RENTER TO READ MY REVIEWS. PEOPLE HAVE RULES AND THIS COUPLE STAYED FIVE NIGHTS AND CLAIM THE COMODE SEAT WAS BROKEN BUT THEY COULD NOT USE IT BECAUSE THEY BROKE IT AND PIECES WERE ALL BEHIND AND AROUND THE COMODE. THEY BROKE THE STRIP ON THE HOTTUB, PULLED ALL THE JETS OUT AND BROKE, CRACKED THE HOTTUB COVER. PUT SCRACHES ALL OVER THE FLOOR. THE ONLY OTHER PROBLEM I HAVE HAD IS A GUEST BRINGING A PET. I DO NOT ALLOW PETS OF ANY KIND AND I AM UP FRONT ABOUT THAT. THIS COUPLE OBVIOUSLY DOES NOT USE A BATH ROOM BECAUSE THEY STAYED FIVE NIGHTS AND LEFT A REVIEW AND I DO STILL HAVE THE PHONE CALL FROM THE GIRL CALLING ON THE DAY OF DEPARTURE SAYING HOW GREAT THE STAY WAS. JUST CALL AND I WILL LET YOU HEAR IT. AS SOON AS I TOLD THEM THAT THE COMODE AND CABIN WAS THIS DISCUSTING, THEN THEY ATTACKED ME ON THE PHONE. I LET IT GO INSTEAD OF FILING CHARGES. VRBO NOW HAS TO CHARGE A 250.00 DAMAGE DEPOSIT THAT IS REFUNDABLE TO ALL GUEST BECAUSE OF THIS COUPLE. NOBODY IS NOW ALLOWED TO RENT A STAY FOR THEIR GREAT CHILDREN, BECAUSE OF THIS COUPLE. I SENT A REVIEW TELLING OTHER OWNERS NOT TO RENT TO THESE PEOPLE. BEWARE OF THIS PERSON AND I HAVE THEM ON MY DO NOT RENT TO LIST. I HAVE ADVERTISED TO WATCH FOR THESE PEOPLE. I GAVE THEM ONE STAR AND TOLD ABOUT ALL THE DAMAGES. THAT IS WHY I GOT THE ONE STAR IN RETURN FROM THEM. SOMETIMES IN LIFE THERE ARE RULES TO FOLLOW. I FEEL THIS PARENT HAS BEEN THROUGH THIS BEFORE AND IF NOT WHY DID THEY NOT RENT THEMSELVES. THEY CERTAINLY HAD NO FEELINGS ABOUT MAKING THE NEXT GUEST THAT WAS COMING IN THAT DAY LATE TO CHECK IN BECAUSE I HAD TO GET ALL THESE ITEMS REPLACED AND CLEANED BACK UP FOR THE CUTE COUPLE WANTING TO CHECK IN. I WILL CONTACT THEM AND ASK THEM TO FOLLOW UP WITH THEIR OWN REVIEW, BECAUSE THEY SAW THE BROKEN PIECES

THIS CABIN IS NOT PET FRIENDLY AND DOES NOT ALLOW SMOKING IN THE CABIN. PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES RENT MY CABINS. THEY DO DESERVE A NICE CLEAN CABIN ALSO. TRUST ME THEY WILL CALL IF THEY PICK UP PET ODOR OR SMOKING. SO IF DOING EITHER OF THESE PLEASE DO NOT RENT THIS CABIN. THERE ARE PLENTY OF PET FRIENDLY CABINS FOR RENT. AND OTHERS THAT ALLOW SMOKING.
