3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Cabin, Sleeps 12
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great view even though it was summer and trees blocked some of the view. We really enjoyed the cabin. And you get to see alot of wildlife right from the cabin deck.
The cabin was dirty, not well equipped. The furniture was old and dirty.
Vrbo fees are unreasonable. What did we get from vrbo ?
Pictures on the website are deceiving. Old and worn out furniture and flooring. Very disappointed.
My cousin was visiting me from out of country and was thrilled about Smokey Mountains and the experience of living in the cabin. We came across I Luv View cottage and it looked decent and fit our budget. When we arrived there and opened the main door we were so disappointed with what we saw. The flooring in the main level was so worn out and chipped off that it made the cabin look old. The sofas and dining table were in poor condition. We couldn’t Sit on 1 leather seat because the spring was broken and we would literally sink in, so we couldn’t use that for our entire stay. When we stepped on the back porch excited to see the Mountain View the only thing we could see was the trees covering it. A decent view is only possible during winter n not any other months. This is just the aesthetics part of it. This place had so many maintenance issues, which I will not deny, some were taken care of right away. But to begin with how can u rent out a property without making sure of its condition. Some of the mantainence issues were:
Bunch of hair in one of the towels
A moldy bedsheet
The floor rug was dirty as if it was not vaccummed in a while.
The kitchen counter was dusty and had webs on it which we had to clean so we could put our things on it.
After 1 use the main level toilet got clogged
Lack of lighting in the lower level including missing bulbs.
The lower level outer porch that had hot tub did not have any lights so we could not use it in the evening.
Everytime someone would go for a bath in main level bathroom the lower level ceiling would start leaking.
Our experience of the cottage with family was unsatisfactory because first, aesthetically the place looked old and then it was poorly maintained. First 2 days we complained but then we gave up. We had gone there to have fun with family and not worry about calling the property again and again for maintenance issues.
I had taken so many pictures of the floor and furniture to show the property that they look so different from the ones online. They told me we cannot do anything about the flooring because that’s owners responsibility and the furniture is not old but has a distressed look. If that so why do they have a different couch on the website and a totally different one in the house.
Overall it was a disappointing experience.
The pictures on here do not give this cabin justice! It’s beautiful and well spaced. Plenty of space!
Cabin in the Mountains
It was a really nice cabin and we had everything we needed. Very clean and nice. The drive is a little scary and I would suggest a car with some engine power to make it up the steep inclines but it was worth it.
