“Great location!!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The cabin was in a great location. The driveway was very steep but manageable. I would recommend this place for a visit.

Stayed at Mr. Baker's home in August for a mini vacation. What a beautiful home. We wanted a real log cabin and this was exactly what we got. It has a great layout and we really enjoyed the upstairs master bedroom. The home was very well maintained and we really loved the big porch and deck. Mr. Baker was so easy to work with, he was very helpful. We have never been to Tennessee before and we fell in love with Gatlinburg. We will be back !

“Needs better upkeep”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

There is an odor of and evidence of mold in the downstairs bathroom and bedrooms. I noticed this as soon as I walked in the door. The cleaning crew didn't do much as there was dust and cobwebs quite evident. The handle is broken on the microwave. There were multiple light bulbs burned out.There was a basket of bulbs but I don't think it should be the guest's job to go around replacing them. The bottom three steps could really use a handrail. The bottom step is higher than the rest and one of the other steps should be replaced as it is cracked and wobbles. There is a leak in the sewer system that bubbles our near the bottom of the steps. The smell of sewage is quite unpleasant.

We knew beforehand that the drive was steep and it had lots of steps. If you have a large vehicle or more than one be ready to back down the drive as there is limited room to turn around.

On the plus side- there was a bear we saw several times. (We named him Breakfast) He would walk up the road, come up the drive, up the steps to the deck and around the back of the cabin. He would then continue up the hill. He sort of startled me one evening when I was using the grill and he popped his head up the steps. I just went inside till he moved on.

Management Response

It was a pleasure hosting this guest and we’re pleased he enjoyed observing one of our local bear residents We’d like to provide some information about some of the comments he made.

This home is an authentic cedar log home. It is made of natural cedar and does not contain drywall and paint like a typical home in which which most of our guests reside. Cedar homes have a very natural, outdoorsy smell. Most people find it quite attractive but some people mistake it for outdoor smells like greenery, soil, tree mold and other smells one observes in the woods. Many guests comment that they like the rugged, natural smell of cedar. We checked the bathroom and bedroom after the guest’s departure and found no mold. The cedar walls contained sections of weathering which is natural for cedar and appears as a darker tint.

There is no bubbling sewage at the steps. It is some runoff from the drainage system channeling rain water from the side of the home.

This home contains 63 working light bulbs. At times during a guest’s stay one bulb may burn out while they are our guests. We provide a basket of spare bulbs and batteries just in case a guest might prefer to quickly replace a bulb or a TV remote battery without the inconvenience of waiting for a tech to come up and replace the bulb. Many guests tell us they like this option and appreciate the opportunity to avoid a maintenance visit. This guest reported one burned out bulb (not 2 or 3) and indicated he was agreeable to use one of the spare bulbs. Unfortunately, his review tells a slightly different story.

We can not guarantee a guest will never see a cobweb but the home is thoroughly cleaned between each stay and is deep cleaned every 6 months. Our driveway is sloped just like nearly EVERY other driveway on the side of a mountain. However, the driveway is asphalt paved and easily navigated either going forward or backing up. This guest was not familiar with our mountain living and probably had not seen many sloped driveways in the past.

Again it was a pleasure hosting this guest and perhaps he is now more familiar with a true log home.
