Highly recommend the Open House rental! The rental was in perfect condition when my family and I arrived and the stay was perfect. Already looking ahead to another stay at the cabin!

location was decent but not every thing is working

  • 3 of 5

Location was good. conveniently located to all the nice places around. but we had few concerns,

we reached there at 5 am in the morning[booked an extra day, because we dont want to wait until 4PM to check in] and the lock box pin wasnt working.

It is ok if the spider webs were out side but they were there in the house and are very thick.

Grill wasn't working at all, we had to buy one.

There is one bathroom upstairs with 8 beds in that level and the bathroom lock wasn't working.

Pin wasn't working to dispose the garbage.

And there are no steps down to the woods as shown in the images.

over all stay was okay.

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Open House is a lovely home with all the amenities one needs for a brief or longer stay. Conveniently located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, with easy access to the Smokey National Park or to Dollywood. Wonderful porch for eating outside or just rocking and enjoying the sunset over the mountains. The house is comfortably decorated for a relaxing stay. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Open House was a perfect home for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Open House. The grandchildren didn't have time to turn on the TV. The little ones loved the duel bunker beds. The view was great and very relaxing. Should we return to Gatlinburg we would look for an opening at Open House. Thanks Dee!

Beautiful and spacious property. Housekeeping should do a better job at dusting the place and notifying the owners of things that are not in working order. Only two of the TVs were working well. Some of the kitchen gadgets such as the can opener were not in good working condition. The king size bed on the lower level is extremely uncomfortable and the bathroom had one of its light bulbs out which made lighting in the bathroom difficult. Also be aware that there are no closets to hang clothes.

These shortcomings notwithstanding this is a beautiful cabin, comfortable, roomy, nicely decorated, great location. Would rent it again and would recommend to our family and friends.

It made for a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your response. I am happy to hear that your family enjoyed the cabin and that you would recommend to your family and friends. I also appreciate your comments regarding some items that need updating. I am actually going to the cabin tomorrow to have the satellite TV boxes replaced and will look into your other concerns. Thank you again for comments and I look forward to your return!
