My family and I rented the cabin “Especially for You” from Dollywood Vacation Rentals at Starr Crest Resorts. Overall we had a wonderful time, the cabin was awesome and although it was a honeymoon cabin it accommodated me, my wife, and our two sons who are 2 and 6. We chose this cabin because it was the cheapest cabin for the week we wanted to stay on the Dollywood website.
The BAD: The cabin had cobwebs in the kitchen hanging from the ceiling and it had ants that we discovered after my boys left a Capri sun drink pouch on the cabinet overnight. After we wiped up the spills the ants did not return for the remainder of our vacation. The towel warmer in the bathroom was broken, looked like it was burned out and had a DO NOT OPERATE label on it. A couple of tiles on the bathroom floor were cracked but nothing you wouldn’t expect from any other hotel. We had to pull the phone and the bedroom TV remote from under the bed, and found a pair of flip flops in the process. 1 We used the washer/dryer combo on the second day only to find out that the exhaust hose for the dryer had come loose and vented the dryer air into the cabin. All trash needed to be put outside, our cabins trashcan didn’t have a lid, and on more than one occasion we saw local dogs knocking over the cans and pulling trash out.
The GOOD: I saved the good for last because overall the trip was incredible. Despite the setbacks above I would recommend this resort to others and would stay in the same cabin again. The bed was king sized and was more than comfortable. After walking all over Pigeon Forge it was a welcomed site for my wife and I. The cabin was spacious for a one bedroom; cable TV and Wi-Fi internet were provided and worked well. The cabin is wired for surround sound which worked well. The sound system is also wired into the bathroom and the porch; my boys loved listening to the radio while they played in the Jacuzzi tub. The kitchen had new appliances and more than enough cabinet space to accompany the horde of food we brought along. We did not try the gas fireplace or the hot tub though they both looked to be in good working order. The cabin is situated close to Dollywood/Splash Country, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. My family and I had plenty of room to stretch out and watch the big screen TV in the living room. All the kitchen appliance were clean and in good working order, AC also worked well. It was a beautiful cabin with breath taking views of the Smokey Mountains. I would definitely stay here again and recommend giving this cabin a try, other than a couple of small items our stay was nothing short of spectacular.
