For adults and a dog for Christmas week. Plenty of room. Minor concerns or questions were handled quickly and courteously. Easy location for access to all gatlinburg has to offer. Recommend without hesitation.

Very clean and just the right size for 2 couples.

  • 5 of 5

Booking was easy and information provided on stay went smooth Pictures of cabin are exactly the way everything we were expecting. Had plenty of towels supplied. If weather would have been warmer we would have loved to have sat out on either of the two porch swings.

Just make sure you get directions to the new location of the rental office though. Our navigation did not get us to the address given. Other than that everthing was perfect.

One stop vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the Thanksgiving weekend! 4 adults, 2 children, 2 dogs...there was PLENTY of space for all of us! Our plan was to travel for a vacation but not go and do anything. We wanted peace & quiet, relaxation & fun. That's exactly what we got here! Everything we needed was here... plenty to keep us busy and having fun! We brought all the food and beverages we needed plus some extra games and cards. Between the cleanliness, comfy beds, full kitchen, grill, washer/dryer etc we felt right at home! We parked, unloaded and never left the property until it was time to go home! We utilized the fooseball table, pool table, hot tub, grill, kitchen, sat on the porch/balconies and enjoyed our surroundings! We highly recommend this cabin!
