Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent three days at Emotional Rescue with our best friends,(4 couples) everyone had a great time...It was so relaxing & the guys enjoyed watching the Vols play Alabama with they shot pool. It was big enough so the men folk could do their thing downstairs while us women watched movies or just sat on the deck upstairs. We usually take a show or two in Pigeon Forge, but this time we just relaxed. This is our second time with Jackson Mountain Homes and we have been really impressed with how nice and how well kept everything is. We will be back.

Beyond Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We cannot say enough how perfect our vacation was at The Emotional Rescue! This cabin is located in the perfect location for both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge- however, once you arrive at this beautiful cabin with breath taking views, you may not want to leave! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The bedrooms all have comfortable king beds and private bathrooms. There is a great game room area down stairs and the hot tub. The most impressive thing about this cabin is how clean it is. We are already talking about booking this cabin again for next year- what a perfect cabin for a perfect vacation!

Very beautiful cabin with mountain views

  • 3 of 5

Overall good. When we first arrived there had been a miscommunication with housekeeping and cabin wasn’t ready. We had two elderly parents traveling with us and we had scheduled our arrival to be at check in time. Since unit was not cleaned we had to take them out for 2 hours while unit was being cleaned. Fireplace downstairs did not work. Gaming table did not work. Several stink bugs and ladybugs found on main level. Although entrance only had one step it was very difficult to maneuver for my 91 year old mother since no railing was available. Beds were memory foam but very hard. I did send a text to owner and asked for some type of compensation regarding unit not being clean upon arrival but did not receive any compensation

Great Gatlinburg cabin. Beautiful views. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Lots of kitchen gadgets.

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days over Christmas and really appreciated the fact that the cabin was decorated for the holidays. We often travel over the holidays and always end up buying a small tree and ornaments. So nice not to have to!

We had eight adults and had plenty of space. The “kids” enjoyed having the lower level to themselves and took advantage of the pool table and the hot tub.

Preparing Christmas dinner went really well. Although I did miss my big gas range, having a roaster and crock pot really helped - and my husband was thrilled to find an electric knife for the carving. The dining table seated us all very comfortably for dinner and served as game and puzzle central throughout our stay. Also nice to have both a Keurig and a regular coffee pot.

The location was very convenient to all the things Gatlinburg has to offer and was also close to the grocery store.

All in all a great family getaway.

Days before arriving at this cabin I receive an email with all info on how to unlock the door, alarm code, hot tub code, etc.

In my reservation I included that I would have 8 guests and two dogs. On Thanksgiving Day November 23, 2017, I receive an email that a PROPERTY DAMAGE CLAIM has been filed against me for a REMOTE CONTROL. My husband waits until Friday, November 24th to phone the owner of the cabin. After a declined call, I receive a TEXT MESSAGE from him stating “By my count you had fourteen people in my house with a reservation for six, I would not have excepted your party if I was told the truth. So as far as I’m concerned one of your large party lost it, and moved cables.”

Here one would assume that I was made to be a liar. I forwarded a copy of the reservation to said owner with no avail. I reserved for 8 people, 8 people stayed there, & now there are 8 VERY UNHAPPY PEOPLE. I would love to know where he thinks 14 stayed.

Not only that, but the code that was given to me for the hot tub did not work. We did not see fit to try to contact someone about it. It was not a problem. We were only at the cabin to shower and sleep. He seemed to think it was absurd that we did not contact him about the missing remote or hot tub code when we got there. The missing remote was not a big deal. We watched television downstairs the first night and didn’t even turn it on again. As for the hot tub, we slid the cover out from under the lock and sat in it with a lock across it. Once again, not a big deal. As a business owner I know what it is like to relax and enjoy a moment of peace, so no need to bother anyone about it.

All 4 rooms had a king size bed. The other 3 couples that stayed with us agreed that it was the worst mattresses they have ever slept on. If you’re going to have a decent cabin, spend some extra money and upgrade those mattresses.

My husband and our families travel to Gatlinburg 2-4 times a year for the local Norton Shows for our Pharmacy and have never had such a horrible experience.

The owner is very unprofessional, and I am highly dissatisfied. Reconsider your stay here before you book.

Owner's Response: We have a high standard by which we own and operate our house. We have the best house keeping, we use highest quality linens, towels and go the extra mile caring for our guests, providing over the top service. We also have house rules, one of which is to report problems immediately, to accommodate current guest as well as future guests. Our Quality control includes inventory of all electrical equipment and test systems.We also have outdoor live security camera with recording , These guests had 8 adults and 6 children. This is in violation to our house rules and Gatlinburg Fire Code for occupancy. On check out the main TV remote was missing, so I called guest and was told the remote was never there, which I know to be false. So I filed a damage claim for replacement of remote. Ironically our guest that stayed before them sent me this nice e-mail: Hi John, Our group of friends had a great time at Gatlinburg and really enjoyed the cabin during our visit at the beginning of November. Thanks for providing such a nice cabin. I have sort of an odd question, I really slept great on the bed in my room, and some others were saying the same. I was wandering if you know what kind of mattress you have in the cabin as I want to look into getting one for myself. Thanks, Tim. After I filed claim this guest then threatened me so I blocked their calls, very upsetting to my wife and my family. These guest are the unprofessional ones

Convenience with a View

  • 4 of 5

Cottage layout was perfect for our family. Beds were comfortable. There were a few trees blocking the view, but the open spots gave way to breathtaking mountains. The location was perfect. Close to grocery, easy drive into town, close to hiking, quiet neighborhood. We didn't find the home as clean as we are used to with other rentals we've purchased, but it wasn't bad enough to complain about either. Being more of a minimalist, the cluttered kitchen cabinets and knickknacks and mismatched linens were off-putting.

Not sure we'll stay here again if we return, but we had a nice week in the mountains.
