“Amazing place that we will surely stay at again. I only wish the mattress was better...”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We recently stayed here for a long weekend over the 4th of July Holiday. We loved the property. We stayed in Spectacular Views (cabin #51). Needless to say, the title is not an exaggeration. The views were incredible. Looking into the valley, you have huge windows that allow in a ton of light and give you a near panoramic view of the mountains. It was breathtaking to wake up to this, eat dinner to this, and watch the sunset on the patio every night. That alone is enough to stay here, but the overall experience was great as well.

The management was incredibly professional and communicated very well. We received multiple messages just to check in and make sure we didn't need anything.

The cabins are clean, well-appointed, and come with a full kitchen stocked with all the utensils, pots, pans, and plates you will ever need. The hot tub was much-appreciated at the end of a long day of hiking. For those concerned about cleanliness: They change out the hot tub water for every visit. Overall, the atmosphere provided by the furnishings, views, and spacious rooms made it easy to relax and enjoy our time. We will definitely be coming back here on our next visit.

I only have one caveat that keeps this from being all five stars all the way through.:

The bed was uncomfortable. The mattress seemed to sag some in the middle and we didn't get much support. Both of us would wake up with aches and pains in our backs each morning. We both travel a lot and have had many stays in hotels/hostels/B&Bs, etc. This is one of the few times we've ever actually been bothered enough to mention it in a review, despite some not great mattresses in hostels and other lodgings in the past. Given the quality of the whole package, we still plan to stay here again. If you have back issues, though you might want to look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Definitely pick a cabin in the 50s or 60s if you want a great view. The pictures are fairly accurate...

This was our honeymoon location and it was amazing! A beautiful cabin tucked away enough to be away from the hustle and bustle, yet minutes away from the gatlinburg strip. The hot tub and whirlpool was the icing on the cake.

Cabin was very clean with lots of extras, pool table, game machine, large movie screen. It is located just off of the craft loop and within 10-15 minutes to Gatlinburg. The price was very reasonable for a 4 bedroom cabin. My family enjoyed it very much and I'm sure we will return some day.

Room Tip: Choose a cabin with bedrooms on main floor if you have knee or leg problems.

I had researched for weeks before deciding on a cabin. I definitely made the right choice. A beautiful cabin located far from the maddening Gatlinburg crowds. After long days hiking in the park, it was wonderful to come back and enjoy the view with a glass of wine. The pool table and darts made for some fun family time. Everything about our visit was great. The cabin was spotless and had everything we needed. The rental was easy and they even called to check on us. I would definitely recommend Elk Spring Cabin rentals!

Beautifully designed cabins in a very private setting. Spectacular views of the mountains. The best and most luxurious cabin I have ever rented! Elk Springs is the best kept secret in the Smokies! Elk Springs will be my first choice for my next visit to the Smokies.

We recently took an extended-family getaway to the Gatlinburg area, and stayed in Living In Paradise, a 3-bedroom, 3-bath cabin with theater room, tucked into the hillsides between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We had 8 adults, and 5 children, and it was the PERFECT size for us. The cabin was clean, beautifully decorated, and laid out in a way that gave us all privacy when we wanted it, and lots of togetherness as well! The managers were extremely helpful to us, from start to finish, and were just a phone call away when we had questions. I don't know which part of the cabin was our favorite-- the spacious modern kitchen, the pool room, the wrap-around decks with hot tub, or the 3-level set-up. I will definitely try to come back to this resort, and will recommend it to my friends. Thanks, Elk Springs!

Perfect. Everything. From booking to checking out. Simple as 1,2,3. Again what I loved regarding the booking process was that I did not have to travel to another area to get keys for the cabin. Everything we needed was there. Can't wait to go back!
