The Cabin was amazing...perfect for a short honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

The owner of the Cabin was amazing and the Cabin was beautiful. He went out of his way to help us after we hit a large rock in the road at the resort. I have nothing but compliments for the owner and cabin. However, the maintenance man at the resort was unprofessional and aggressive with my husband. Our taxi driver witnessed the entire thing and could not believe how the man approached and yelled and me and my husband. Ive played phone tag with the management company and her message tell me to contact my insurance company. She doesnt seem interested at all in hearing my concerns.

Overall i would rent from this owner again. He was great and the cabin was amazing. But management and resort staff leave a lot to be desired.

Clean cabin. Good location.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is about 2 miles up a country road away from the main part of Pigeon Forge. This is a great location to hit directly into or bypass the traffic. Cell phone signal was still good in this area. Cabin was clean and comfortable. Would rent again.

First off I'm going to start with the negatives. The cabin is located within Hidden Springs Resort. I feel as if it is their responsibility to fix the sewage problem, NOT Dave's. It definitely needs fixed though. There's no words to describe how bad it truly is. It is worse than a public outhouse. No joke. There's several cabins around so they're definitely struggling with it 2. It was awful. On to the next...I spoke with Dave via email trying 2 figure out a price. He generously offered me a $60 discount. Funny thing is, the bill had a $49 cleaning fee then a $60 cleaning fee added 2 it. Lol. So he pretty much just took the $60 right back. I've booked numerous cabins and there's only been ONE $49 cleaning fee every single time. So essentially it was his way of giving a discount without really giving a discount. He ended up taking an additional $40 off though, which was awesome. A discount is a discount and I appreciate it. When booking be prepared 2 pay a service fee of $40-$50 to VRBO. For 3 nights it cost me a total of $465. Not bad at all.

The living room has a tiny TV. We literally had 2 sit on bar stools in the middle of the floor 2 watch a show. A show that went out a ¼ of the way through anyhow. The satellite(Dish Network) reception is just AWFUL. There was a quick 15min rainstorm & it knocked the TV out 4 almost an hr. The TV in the bedroom is even tinier.

Overall, the cleanliness of the cabin was 3 out of 5 stars. There was dust & dead bugs in the measuring cup & other dishes in the kitchen. There was also dust & dead bugs in the cup of dice where the boardgames are located. I don't blame Dave for this though... I just think his housekeeper is rushing through & not paying attention. Outside of that the cabin appeared 2 be clean.

We didn't get to use the hot tub, bc it was broke. On our drive there Dave texted me telling me the hot tub was running at an unsafe temp & that he had a repair man scheduled for the next a.m. We refused it though bc the guy would have to come through the cabin 2 get 2 it & I don't like the idea of a stranger being around my stuff while I'm not there. No thanks. In his defense he tried 2 fix it.

POSITIVES: It's a newer cabin, well stocked, very close to town, arcade game was a blast, the pool table was fun 2, but your stick hits the wall, table, or arcade for almost every shot.

Things 2 improve: Buy a 55" TV & get cable or DirectTV, provide bar soap(we had nothing but hand soap 2 shower with the 1st night)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review but allow me to provide some clarification. At times,there has been a sewage smell within the Resort. Our Home Owner's Association is in contact with the Tennessee Waste Water System, the responsible governmental agency, for resolution. I would point out that this condition is intermittent and I would encourage any guest to contact me during their stay so I may forward the complaint to Tennessee Waste Water for investigation. Further, I would point out that this problem is not in my cabin and is not noticeable inside the cabin. With regard to fees, there is only one cleaning fee. This fee is forwarded to me so I may pay my housekeeper on a monthly basis. I retain no portion of the fee. There is also a maintenance fee. This fee is charged in lieu of the property damage protection fee offered by VRBO/Homeaway of $59.00. This maintenance fee is used for minor damage protection and repair and to cover replacement and improvements of fixtures. Other fees are a service fee charged by VRBO/Homeaway which is retained by them and sales tax which I forward to the appropriate State and Local entities. Television coverage in the area is by satellite dishes. Cable was not available when I bought the cabin and I believe is still not available. Satellite dishes are prone to reception problems during strong storms in the area. The hot tub problem was reported by my housekeeper immediately prior to this guest's arrival. I contacted my hot tub technician but could not arrange service before the guest's Sunday arrival. A service date for Monday was set but later cancelled at the guest's request. We provide soft soap for hand washing but don't provide bar soap for showering as I believe guests have a wide range of product preferences. I will consider large televisions but do not want to detract from the esthetics of the cabin.

Great weekend getaway

Great stay at happy hearts! Well cared for cabin. Loved the pool table, arcade game, and relaxing in the hot tub. Close to everything but secluded feel.

Car: necessary

Nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park this area features a wide variety of outdoor activities. Hiking, scenic auto tours, and historic pioneer farmlands which are available for tour are just a few possibilities . After a quiet walk, enjoy a peaceful picnic in the park or engage in a vigorous hike along the Appalachian Trail or other park trails. Clingman's dome, Roaring Fork Nature Trail, Cades Cove, Mount Leconte, and Cherokee North Carolina are just a few places you will want to visit.

After a day of sight seeing enjoy a nice dinner at one of the many restaurants in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. Afterward you may want to visit many of the local shops in the area. Enjoy factory outlet stores, local one of a kind businesses or visit the craft loop to see many locally made crafts.

During one of your days,you may want to enjoy Dollywood, a theme park started by Dolly Parton or visit one of the many theaters for a live performance.

Dollywood Splash Country or the Dixie Stampede provide entertainment for children and parents alike. Go cart tracks, miniature golf and many other amusements abound in the area. For the more adventuresome, you may find one of the area zip lines, horse back riding, river tubing or white water adventures may be more to your liking. Don't forget to stop into the NOC store in Gatlinburg where you can pick up those last minute hiking or fly fishing needs or visit their basecamp for adventure.

Finally, you may want to enjoy local musicians who play country, bluegrass and many other musical genres.

Our cabin is centrally located to all of these areas and truly is the 'heart of it all'.
