Guestbook comments from the owner


I cannot say enough good things about our recent stay at Southern Cross Cabin! The cabin was so amazing and our guests were absolutely blown away! Within minutes of being there, they were already making plans to come back next year! You even managed to impress my brother, which is a feat in of itself! We loved every single thing about this cabin and it truly became our little home away from home for the weekend.

You guys made this whole process very fun and easy, and we felt truly taken care of while we were there. "Thank you" doesn't even begin to cover it!

Our family is spread out over several states and it is often hard to get everyone together in one place. This cabin made it easy for us to gather everyone and truly made my Christmas wish come true! We are deeply considering coming back and doing this again next year. If so, when is the earliest we can book those dates?

Thank you again for everything, and I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 couples for a two night stay at Southern Cross. The cabin is very large and the bedrooms are spaced well! Plenty of privacy in each bedroom, and we all LOVED that each room has its own bathroom. The jet tubs were deep and wonderful, also the jet sprays in the showers! The kitchen was a great place to gather and was very well equipped. The theater was our favorite place. We also loved the pool table with fireplace in the room! We will DEFINITELY be coming back for many years! Easy drive and amazing views. Lots of great memories made this weekend!

This is our second time in Gatlinburg and both times we have stayed at Southern Cross. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. It's absolutely beautiful. Beds are comfortable, decorating is fabulous. We arrived in the fall and it was decorated throughout the cabin with fall leaves, wreaths, etc. The owners really care about this cabin because even the little details were noticeable. Kitchen was fully stocked - more than you could ask for, comforters were soft and warm, fireplace turns on in the twist of a nob, pool table / game room was used constantly, and the theater room was excellent!!

The owners picked a phenomenal management company. On our first visit they were very attentive to any of our questions and our needs. I've rented many cabins and have been disappointed with help and assistance in the past, but this management company is top notch.

If you are interested in this cabin - BOOK IT!!! You will come back to Southern Cross every time!!! There is no comparison.

Wonderfull Southern Cross

  • 5 of 5

Year after year we come back to Southern Cross. We love this place. It's a wonderful cabin with a perfect view of the mountains. Just a short drive of the road it's perfect, no long winding roads up a mountain side. Great for the golfers in your group with a course just a few yards from the cabin.

6 large bedrooms each with a private bath. It makes it easy for everyone to get ready in the morning. The kitchen is well equipped for those large family meals. The best part of the cabin is the large theater room. Great for movies or just kicking back watching the big game. You won't want to leave this place. Kelly great job again this year. You make renting vacation cabins a wonderful experience. We will be booking again for next year soon. Thanks again!

A Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented Southern Cross for a large weekend, family gathering: 6 couples, plus 5 children ages 4 and under. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom, giving people plenty of private space. The view from the desk is gorgeous. I also knew that some of our guests were not fans of winding, mountain driving, so the easy drive to the house from the golf course was a plus.

A couple small criticisms: The main living room is somewhat small for such a large house and was very dark (the main light fixture was burned out and could not be replaced during our stay). Also, there were some small maintenance issues upon our arrival. While the house was very cleaning, there were a tremendous number of light bulbs burned out throughout the house, as well as a large nest of yellow jackets right outside the front door. The light bulbs were within the owner's control; the yellow jackets, less so. That said, Kelly and the maintenance staff were extremely responsive to our concerns and went above and beyond in addressing them. We very much appreciated their help.

All in all, we had a wonderful, memorable stay at Southern Cross and hope to return again!

2014 family vacation !!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd year we have been coming to the mountains as a family, 8 adults, 7 grandkids, our daughter and our 2 sons and their kids, we have rented before in cobbley knob , a little higher up on the mountain, this year southern cross was a lot lower and right on the golf course which made it great for our 2 sons and son in law, all 3 avid golfers. We stayed 6 nights leaving on Friday, everyone had a fantastic time, all 4 families took a night and cooked what they wanted, easy enough in this gourmet kitchen stocked with all pots and pans and dishes you could want, charcoal grill on the deck as well. so meals did not have to be out with 15 people !!!! all the kids, ages....15,12,10,9,7,5 and 4 enjoyed the massive theatre room and the game room. All 4 families had their choice of bedrooms (mimi and papa got the master) so everyone was happy, including the kids who slept between the spare bedroom or in the loft area, which was ideally set up with chair and sofa that made beds, this place is huge enough that nobody got in anyone's way at all very well laid out, and with all the TV's anytime a kid wanted to watch a different movie, just put it in a dvd on a tv and watch it. we had a few small issues but Kelly was easily reachable and within the hour we had Tim, the maintenance man, at the property !!!!!!!!!! and doing his thing, great people, Kelly and Tim, a big thank you from the family!!!!!!!!!!! I would highly recommend this cabin to any family that is planning a get together of any kind, it was clean and well stocked and the location is excellent. we will be back next year !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful large cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family of 24 stayed for 5 nights at Southern Cross and had a wonderful time. The cabin is simply amazing. With 4 floors and so much room you would have never known there were so many people. Bedrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was fully stocked so fixing meals was a breeze. The views from the 2 decks were incredible, we spent most evenings on the larger deck enjoying the company of my fun and crazy family. The biggest surprise was the size of the theater. The children enjoyed watching their favorite videos but once asleep the adults too it over and played games until the wee hours of the morning. We did have a couple issues with some of the appliances but a quick call to Kelly and they were there within an hour or so to fix the problem....thank you Kelly for all your help. All in all it is an amazing cabin which my family will have memories for a lifetime. Thank you for sharing it with my family.
