Perfect for our Family of Adults!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin on the river was perfect for our family vacation in the Smokies! There was plenty of room for our family with our adult kids and the layout afforded everyone some privacy. We enjoyed the river... catching some bass and watching the birds from the deck! The cabin was centrally located to allow us to go on several small trips... to the casino in Cherokee NC, hiking up to Clingmans Dome and another hike on Gabes Mountain Trail to a waterfall. We also went to Gatlinburg where we tasted moonshine at Colliers' and then zip lining and white water rafting at "Rafting in the Smokies"in Hartford!

It was always nice to come back to the peace of the cabin and soak in the hot tub, play some horse shoes or sit around the campfire.

I can't think of anything I would have changed!

I am sure our family will return!

Thanks Stan!

Spacious for the family of 10.nice views.very relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

Overall it is a good cabin.plenty of bathrooms and space and relatively close to only complaint would be that you are confined to the property.i was walking along the river fishing and got yelled at by a local because I was fishing...guess they have claimed the river and probably knew i was a rentaler.threatened to call the cops on me because its private property.wont be coming back for that reason.also it makes it look more private on the website in which it is are surrounded by other rentals and homes.

House was beautiful but we thought it was more secluded but we had trailers/ houses surrounding us

  • 4 of 5

We loved it and it was peaceful. The cabin is gorgeous and very clean. We were taken aback when we arrived due to the fact that we read the cabin was secluded and in the pictures you saw nothing but nature. This was not the fact and didn't see the cabin at first because we weren't expecting there to be another little cabin in the front then there were trailers on either side of us. We definitely enjoyed our stay but again you may want to make sure people know it isn't secluded by itself. Again wonderful trip, beautiful house and very clean and lots of room.

Beautiful river front

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time with our 3 family group. Beautiful scenery and not too far from Gatlinburg. Would be a perfect place to summer vacation as well! Owner super responsive with any need we had. Very clean and had everything we needed for a great stay!

Overall was good. Right size for our family gathering

  • 3 of 5

The River Camp Lodge was large enough for our family of 8 to gather and enjoy each other. Would have given it at least another 1/2 star if possible. Teenagers loved the hot tub. Since this was winter we could have used brighter lights to read by. We were unable to get the TV to show normal channels. Could have used instruction book for the TVs. Also for the stove, even though we figured it out. The drains were very slow to drain . We made sure that everyone dumped all food before using the sink. Instruction on how to lock door when leaving was not included, but we figured it out also. Refrigerator worked fine except the door water dispenser is very slow (may need a new filter). Ice dispenser was good. The tray on the outside of the door under the ice and water dispenser is useless. When we arrived, the heat was turned way down and it took most of the night to get it up to where we were all comfortable. When you know someone is checking in, you might adjust the heat (or air conditioning) so that it is comfortable for when your guests arrive. Could have used more full size towels. It rained one full day while we were there and the roof leaked over top of the Microwave in the back room. I called about it but received no response. Also emailed about it but still never received a response. I wanted to tell the proprietor where the leak was. Surprised at the lack of response. Other than that everything was good. With a response, I would have rated it at least 4 stars.

Rented the cabin with some friends for my birthday and we had an amazing time. The house was so clran and cozy. Our favorite place was the deck with the hot tub and view of the river. Definitely had a wonderful birthday.
