“A little piece of Heaven”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

My family and I recently spent three nights at the Moonshiner's Legacy, and let me tell it was the most amazing experience. The cabin is not too far up the mountain but is just far enough to offer a good view of the Smokey Mountains. I enjoyed the early mornings on the deck enjoying the view. It is a serene location but is situation just close enough to town so that husbands certainly won't get tired of being sent back out for something they failed to buy (not that this happened to my husband at all).
I would be remiss not to mention the cleanliness of the cabin. It is clear that this resort prides itself on cleanliness as we found everything extremely clean, neat, and inviting ( that's saying a lot coming from someone who pulls back the covers to closely inspect the sheets of hotel beds).
My family and I were so happy and plan to return again soon (minus the kids :)

My husband and I stayed in the Moonshiner's Legacy for 3 days/2 nights and the accommodations were PERFECT! The view of the mountains from the cabin was great and the cabin itself was just as the pictures indicated -- very new and VERY clean. The kitchen was very well stocked with high quality kitchen ware and current appliances. This was a great escape for us , very remote and peaceful and a nice respite getaway. The house is close to a very nice grocery store and all of the sights of Gatlinburg. The only thing that could have been improved was if we had been notified by the property management group that they needed extra time to get the house ready for us because the previous group was late in leaving. We didn't get access to the house until almost 5:00 pm, 2 hours after the expected 3:00 check in. Our arrival was delayed by heavy traffic but a heads up phone call to our cell phone would have been much better than not getting a phone call back until almost 1 1/2 hours after the expected 3:00 check in. We did receive courtesy calls during our stay to ensure that things were going well and booking the reservation was pretty easy on the website. We will definitely use Elk Springs Resort for a vacation again.

Everything about our cabin was as advertised. It was a 3 bedroom with a pull-out sofa sleeper. Very quiet and allowed everyone to have their own room. Also it was very clean and had all utensils, coffeemaker, and the essentials right there. I would highly recommend this to anyone for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: From what I could tell, there were no cabins that were less nice than others.

We went with couple of families and really enjoyed the stay at Southern comfort. The cabin was very neat and and well managed. Reservation, check in and check out process was very smooth. Would definitely go back again soon.

We stayed at "Life's a Bear" Cabin. The cabin was clean and well managed. It was located off of the main resort but we found the location to be very convenient. The appliances were very nice and modern and most of the items you would need ( dishes, glasses, utensils, wine glasses) were all provided. Would definitely recommend staying again.

The cabin was amazing! We had such a great stay and can't wait to come back. The wrap around porch was awesome- complete with a porch swing, rocking chairs, grill and not to mention a very cool tree house hot tub! We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations, thank you!
