"Every three years I bring together all of my children and grandchildren for a fun trip. This year I chose Gatlinburg and we could not have picked a better cabin. We are 20 in number...8 adults, 5 teens, 5 little ones, and 2 infants. This property had it all....no one was bored and there was plenty of room for everyone. The teens enjoyed the arcade style video games, the pool table, the air hockey and foosball. Several of us enjoyed the spa on the deck and the spa tubs in the rooms. The cabin is well stocked with board games and we had a family game night. The main sitting areas and each bedroom each has it's own television, although one of our party stated that the downstairs televisions were not picking up cable, but I chalk that up to operator error. The teens used the huge TV downstairs for the xbox games and I used it for hooking up Apple TV and having family movie night.
The view was my favorite thing. Each floor has its own balcony and the mountains looked different overtime i sat and looked at them. The dining table does not accommodate 20, but what table does. The teens and little ones were plenty happy at the kitchen island. The kitchen was well stocked with every utensil you would need. The fridge is a little small for a cabin that holds so many, but it is no big deal. If you have a large party, and are staying several days, plan a couple trips to the Food Town at the bottom of the mountain. We cooked family meals most nights and preparing meals was no problem.
Lucinda called me on our first day to make sure we got checked in ok and when I called her back to make her aware of a small repair and maintenance issues, she was quick to have her handyman address the issue. Tom and Lucinda are very responsive property owners. The serious wildfires occurred after i booked but before our trip. I was in touch with Tom and Lucinda about the status of the cabin and they assured me this property was untouched. (Unfortunately, they did lose another property).
The cabin was decorated for Christmas and I enjoyed having a lighted tree during our stay. I could not imagine any group not having a great time at this property. It is centrally located to everything you need and would want to do.
Slight warning to those not familiar with mountains.....the driveway is a little steep, but once you master it, it is not a big deal. If you wanna be above it all, you got to get above it all."
