“Moonshiner's Legacy Was Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

I spent hours combing through various options for a last-minute trip to Tennessee. I did not want to spend a lot of money and end up in a dirty, or sub-par cabin. Enter Elk Springs....they replied quickly to an inquiry I had sent and provided excellent customer service - friendly, knowledgeable about each property available, and willing to work in a discount. The cabin we stayed in - Moonshiner's Legacy was impeccably clean, well-decorated and up-to-date. It was very comfortable, with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and two bedrooms with beautiful, comfy beds. The location was great - about a mile up the mountain, on a cul-de-sac with a couple of other cabins. I enjoyed a morning jog each day, with coffee on the balcony, enjoying a beautiful mountain view. Customer service was easily available anytime I had a question, from area entertainment to how to reset the lock. We enjoyed our experience so much we stayed an extra day, and would love to make the trip back next summer. This cabin slept our family of 4 very comfortably. It could accommodate two small families of 4 each if you had an air mattress for the kids. Thank you for a great, comfortable stay!

Room Tip: Call Elk Springs directly - they were very informative on the particulars of each available cabin.

The cabin, a secret splash, was great for a family of 4 for a week. Nobody wanted to leave. Perfectly located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Mostly secluded cabin (could only see one other cabin). We spent most evenings at the cabin to avoid the crowds. Very relaxing. We had a couple of minor maintenance issues (expected with a rental). They were attended to quickly by very pleasant staff. When we arrived, the cabin was very clean. Beds were very comfortable. Great cabin for a relaxing family vacation. Every interaction we had with staff was pleasant - they even called the day after check in to see how things were going. Will definitely go with this company if we return.

Room Tip: The pictures of our cabin were accurate! Be sure to ask if cabin is secluded or has a difficult driv...

We stayed almost a week in the Bass Lodge cabin. It was a beautiful cabin, very clean and the perfect location. The pictures were exactly right, furniture was super nice and the bed had wonderful sheets. The management was very helpful and the directions were spot on. It is close to a nice grocery store and about 10 minutes from the heart of Gatlinburg. Also just minutes to two of the best places in the Smokies, Green Briar and the Roaring Forks. Really the location is perfect, you are in the heart of the Arts and Crafts district, 10 minutes at most to Gatlinburg and close to a grocery store. The best part is you wouldn't know that because as you sit on the deck in the morning with your coffee all you see are beautiful mountains. We loved it! Also have to add the hot tub was by far the cleanest we have ever seen.

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.
