Lodging 1 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)
Great places - just a few recommendations to be perfect!
We stayed in #75, the cabin is cute, secluded from all others, perfect for a small family (like us 2 adults, 2 kids) or couple. There were a lot of cobwebs and just dust webs, that make it less cleanly, well because I hate spiders and it freaks me out. LOL. I recommend having a dust broom available at the cabin as the woods right off the deck bring in a lot of spiders so daily there were new webs off each deck, that my husband ran into, lol, at least it wasn't me. The #1 issue was the view, Brothers Cove is in a perfect location and has amazing views however this cabin no longer has the amazing view they advertised for. There are two over grown sapling trees that block the view completely and on both decks. #74, #58, and #61 have the absolute best views!! This cabin also the foundation support boards were extremely warped and rotting so that made me weary.
The internet was very weak and slow, we have T-Mobile and the cell service was horrible unless in specific spots. But we were on vacation so it wasn't that important to us.
We loved the area and cabins so much we rented #58 for our next trip before we even left our first. The staff at the office was very friendly, I like that the community is gated, and well maintained. The scenery in the area is gorgeous, look for wildlife there were groundhogs, bears, turkey, deer, rabbits, they had it all. Many people do all the Hollywood scene attractions but just taking in all the local beauty's and landscape was simply breathtaking. Seeing the clouds and fog go through the mountains early morning was amazing. Definitely stay in Brothers Cove it is convenient to all main attractions and just well worth it.
Perfect Place for Peace and Quiet
We stayed in the Scenic Serenity Cabin at Brothers Cove for our honeymoon last week.. and wow! The cabin was exactly as the pictures profiled... the location, the view was breathtaking. The cabin was so roomy and comfortable. Kitchen with everything you need so staying in is just as option as heading out. Would we return, definitely
We appreciate you taking the time to write such a kind review about your stay with us, and we are thrilled that you chose to spend your honeymoon at Scenic Serenity. The views are indeed stunning, as your lovely photos illustrate (thank you for sharing them with us!). It is so nice to hear that you found the cabin comfortable, and the kitchen well-equipped. We look forward to helping you plan your next trip the the Smokies again soon.
We loved our cabin! Sunset views nightly! Peaceful and secluded! Plenty of space and so comfy with two fireplaces!!! We love Brothers Cove and will be back!
Overall a nice stay, with a couple of glitches.
Just got back from vacation in Cabin #75 for 6 days, and the cabin was wonderful except for a couple of things. We couldn't make a phone call or receive one on the cell phones or the cabin phone, so if I needed to call the office, I had to drive down to it and talk in person. The wifi was terrible and your phone or laptop had to be in the right place at the right time. We could receive text calls, but sometime we wouldn't get the message until we went into town. But that's the mountains. The washer/dryer combo was broken, and when we opened the door toit, the front fell off where someone had already looked at it. Thank goodness for the wonderful staff at Brothers Cove, to help us out, they let me use a cabin near by to do our laundry. It was just about a three hour delay for our relaxation. The only other thing, and not too much of a bother, but they had a crew digging up the street right in front of the cabin to work on water lines everyday of the week except Saturday, so there was not much Serenity during the day time from about 9 am to 4 pm. We left most of that time, but they parked in the cabin driveway, so we had to squeeze the car in place.This was our 4th trip to Brothers Cove, we've always loved it, and this is no exception, but someone should have known about the washer, and the road construction ahead of time, and maybe put us in a different cabin. Buck's Lookout is where I did my laundry, and everything there seemed good. We've never had issues with Natural Retreats, and may still decide to go back one more time to Brothers Cove, be we will be a lot more particular next time.All in all, we had a nice vacation, everything else about the cabin was good. The staff at Brother Cove should be commended on a great job.Thanks you for sharing with us for a week. I would recommend Brothers Cove, but not Cabin #75.
awesome view, beautiful cabin, gorgeous resort!
My husband and I spent our 30th anniversary at Scenic Serenity. The cabin was very nice and the view from the upper deck was beautiful. The lower deck view could be so much nicer if only a few younger trees could be trimmed back before they get out of control. Also, you need to add more photos of the cabins beautiful backside with all the glass floor to ceiling windows upstairs and downstairs. One of the reasons we had chose this cabin was for the view, but most importantly to us was because it had a land line phone which would keep us in touch with family at home.(600 miles away) We were certain that our cell phones wouldn't work in most places. Very upset that land line never worked the whole week, even after reporting it to office. They came and checked it and said it was the internet providers problem and they would be notified of the problem.We had to constantly worry about what was happening at home with 7-9inches of rain slamming our area. We must admit that it was quite a down fall to deal with and put a damper on our trip that we had been looking forward to for quite awhile! Also, I suggest using some fabric softener on the rough bath towels. Glad we had brought extra ones from home! The bed was very comfy! Hot tub was nice, but light didn't work. Looked like the windows facing out onto main floor deck needed a good cleaning, inside and out. There was a good bit of cobwebs throughout. I know it is a cabin in the woods, but some looked as if they had been there a while. Would probably rent again, with hopes of a few things being addressed a little closer.
I apologize that your visit did not meet expectations. We are working with the owner of that particular cabin to improve the Wifi and phone service at the cabin. Unfortunately, we use a laundry service and are at their mercy with the softness of the linens. I have spoken with them personally to see how we can remedy that if possible. The housekeeping manager has already informed the cleaner to be better aware of knocking down cobwebs and make a better cleaning of the reachable windows. We look forward to your next visit and strive to make it more memorable.
My husband and I were there in August it was a beautiful cabin inside and the views outside were amazing. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We will book with them again.
