Amazing views of the mountains and overlooking Ober Gatlinburg
We spent 4 nights here for spring break. We live in Florida so this was a real change of pace for the kids to see mountains and feel chilly weather! It is about a ten minute drive down winding roads to town. Owners were incredibly responsive and offered some really helpful tips for things to do including a number of hiking trails that worked out perfectly for us - traveling with three kids and a set of grandparents. To be fair, there are some aging aspects of this cabin, but it is clean, comfortable beds, a great hot tub, stainless appliances and plenty of space. The views are wonderful and you get a true mountain getaway. We spent our entire days in town and in the park so this was perfect for what we needed - a warm cabin overlooking the Smokies for an experience unlike anything my kids have ever experienced being raised in Florida.
Gorgeous view. Very comfortable beds. Quaint charm, but long drive up
Beds were super comfy, good supply of kitchen accessories. No outside space for kids to run about. May be best for families with older children...
The drive up to the cabin was a bit long on mountain switchback roads, but worth the view. You can see and hear Ober Gatlinburg from the decks.
It is an older cabin that has some wear and tear, but it adds life/charm to the feel.
The main floor area where the kitchen, dining, and living room are is a great open are for the entire family to gather. This is where most of our time was spent.
Perfect cabin with an even better view.
Where do I begin? This was an amazing experience. You can step out on the patio and see the ski slopes at Ober Gatlinburg below you. The views are astounding. The cabin is perfect for a family get away. The owners are awesome and so laid back. We had the experience of a lifetime in the cabin. I cried when it was time to leave even though I'd been with my teenagers for 5 days. You get to enjoy Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and the privacy of your own house.
Had an enjoyable weekend stay with the family. Everything was as it was described in the cabin overview. The view was really great and Lenny responded quickly to any questions I had. Overall good stay.
Filthy dirty unhealthy worst place we ever stayed
I totally agree with Jamie S and her complete statement. The owners response is not correct and Jamie S. review does reflect what we found.
The white covers looked horrible and full of stains. ( maybe what Jamie wrote someone pissed on them is correct) We had mice dropping behind the couch and the window sills where all filthy and dirty. All air condition ducts are totally dirty and brown stuff is apparently running out. (or someone pissed in there)
We took an excessive amount of pictures at the time we walked into the dump. I contacted via text the owner and sent him pictures to show his cabin and the filth he expects people to live in and pay for on top of that. The owner replied back the next day via e mail, telling me that the cabin is old. I replied to him age of a building does not mean it has to be dirty filthy and unhealthy. He also assured me that the covers had been cleaned at the dry cleaner (between the lines he said I don't know what I am talking about) I told him that this is impossible. I insisted to have the cleaners clean the place spotless which he arranged. They came and the first thing out of their mouth was we have not been here we did not clean here. When they lifted the cushions I saw left over meals, dirt dust feathers gummy bear and more. Now I knew that the covers have been cleaned for sure as the owner assured me and insisted. My drycleaner also does leave all the dirt when I pick my stuff up. Some people just think they are smarter than others and this owner is one of em. We left the place after 2 days since we all got serious bite marks and itches. we saw that 90% of the windows cant be closed properly( hardware broken or totally missing) and bugs get into the house. This was enough of adventure I needed and we decided to leave after we cleaned the dishes, took down the linen in the beds we used and placed them at the washer. If you do want nice vacations in Gatlinburg "DO NOT RENT THIS HOUSE" Home away should be checking on houses owner place on their site or they will loose customers if they have many owners like him. I asked the owner to refund me and he said that he wont due to the strict cancellation policy Home away has, ( must be cancelled before you see it) Where do we have such a thing that we must accept anything and pay for things which do not meet the factual pictures they have on site. These pictures are probably from the day he bought the property. I am more than glad to supply my pictures anyone.
Manfred is right in that the white slip covers on the couch were less than perfect. They were ruined by Jaime, who he references in his review and who has also given us a bad review after damaging our cabin. Manfred arrived very late in the evening and sent us pictures of the floor under the couches, the white slip covers and the return air register. We had the cleaners back at the house first thing in the morning to address all his concerns including taking away all the slip covers. He confirmed verbally and in text that the cleaners had done the work to his expectations and everything was good.
After spending a few days at the cabin over the weekend, he informed us that he had cancelled the arrival of the rest of his party and wanted a full refund for his stay to which we refused and he assured us that he will go on a social media attack to discredit us. The only conclusion we can draw, is that the rest of his party cancelled on him and he came to the cabin specifically to find a way to get a full refund.
We have replacement slip covers on order and have brand new dining chairs already in place (before Manfred’s arrival). We take pride in our home and have only invested in high end furnishings. The couch is from crate and barrel and the feather he refers to is “goose down” that is used for all the cushions. There is nothing misleading about the pictures we have on the website – the home is located where it is – it has the views as shown – the furniture and bedding is as shown. Our reviews from other guests that have stayed there attest to this.
