This was a great experience and the cabin was the greatest part. We couldn't have asked for a better place than this. We plan on making this trip at least once a year just because this cabin was a perfect get away in every way!
What a great place to stay!! Even after seeing the pictures, the cabin was much more than we ever expected. Very close to places to eat and shop! No problems with anything in the cabin at all...linen, fridge, hot tub, t v...NOTHING!! Everything was perfect! It seems that sue takes care of this place...as if she would her own home...VERY IMPRESSED. We have already made plans to be back very soon. The only issue that I have: We did see the note and envelope asking for a tip. Feeling that we should do the right thing, we put 30 dollars in the envelope with a note saying just how much we really enjoyed our stay. I have a very bad feeling that Sue will never see ether of them.
First, it took us an hour to get in (the code we were given was wrong, no one was answering at cabin services, and we were waiting to hear back from renter). Despite there being a housekeeping service (who left a note asking for tip, which I found odd seeing as I assume those fees are included when I pay), the place smelled old, stuffy, and dank. There were plenty of spider webs (mostly outside but some inside), the sheets were washed but it doesn't seem like they wash the comforter or blankets. There were stains on one of the towels. The dishwasher didn't work and we didn't find that out until we were just about to leave and had to hand wash all the dishes before leaving. The swing on the deck was dirty and we had to clean it before we could sit on it. Overall, the hot tub was nice but the rest could use some work.
We had a wonderful and relaxing time. Great location between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, with scenic drives at Roaring Fork and Cades Cove within easy reach. Cozy cabin in a quiet wooded setting and very private. Extremely clean and beautifully decorated inside. We really enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, satellite TV, and fully equipped kitchen. Couldn't have asked for more!
(Be sure to follow the directions you are given after booking and NOT the ones your GPS or Google Maps gives you - trust me.)
My wife and I got this cabin for our honeymoon, and we couldn't have been happier. It's a bit of a hike to drive to from the main road, but it was the perfect size for us as a couple, everything was all set up when we got there, we had no trouble finding it, and we had an amazing time. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to get away for a vacation near Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, as it's conveniently situated between those two major towns.
