Mountain Vista Luxury Rentals
Ranked #50 of 78 Hotels in Gatlinburg
Reviewed 22 April 2012

The consistent are fully stocked with supplies and have the most comfortable beds you could ever imagine. Everything was clean and the decorations were beautiful. Only negative thing is the view from our balcony was of a nasty hotel pool next door and not of the gorgeous mountains. It is a short walk to the parkway, only about 5 minutes. There is covered parking. For security, the only way to get in the elevator from the garage is with a room key.

Just got back from a weekend trip and I must say that Baskins Creek is one of the nicest and cleanest condos I have ever stayed in. I was very impressed with the grounds of the condo, from landscaping to the actual creek than runs beside the condo. The building itself is well maintained and the pool area is great!

Check-in was very smooth and only took a couple minutes. We did find the elevators to be slow, but nothing that could ruin the trip. The hallways leading to the rooms are inside and temperature controlled. The condo itself was very clean, nicely decorated and seemed to be new, even though the condos are over 5 years old. The fireplace was a nice touch and we used it on chilly nights. The condo does have 2 windows that can be opened to let in the fresh mountain air.

The one thing that made this unit perfect was the comfy beds. I have yet to find beds that sleep better than my own personal bed in a condo/hotel. What a nice surprise to be able to sleep in comfort!!!

Im guessing all condos are the same, but we stayed in room 414 and the full kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook/bake with. There is 3 tvs in the unit and the master bedroom is huge and includes its own jucuzzi tub!

Room Tip: We liked the poolview better, but others say the mountain view is better. Just make sure you resear...

This was our first stay and will not be our last. Everything about #406 was great. The staff were very courteous and helpful. There is no access to the rooms from the garage without a room key, which give a more secure feeling. The unit was exceptional in every way. The kitchen was fully equipped. The linen was clean and crisp. The bathtubs and showers were also spotless. I looked for mold and dust but found none. The gas fireplace is a great addition and really added to the atmosphere. The balcony is spacious and the view is welcoming. The shower water pressure is perfect as well as the water temp because a hot shower is outstanding after snowtubing. The close to downtown location is just right. We prefer an upper level room but I don't think this would matter here.
I have nothing to compain about with this unit.

Room Tip: All even room numbers face the pool. Parking is 80% covered because you park under the condos.

We were more than pleased with our stay at Baskins Creek over New Year's. The condo was very spacious, quiet, comfortable and had a home-like feel to it. The condo came equipped with a washer/dryer which made it easy to pack lighter for our stay. The condo FELT clean and made for a very comfortable atmosphere. The only issue with the condo was we found mildew in the master bathroom shower upon check-in. We notified the front desk and they immediately sent someone up to re-clean. Things like that happen and it wasn't a problem with us because the staff was very accommodating in getting the issue resolved immediately.

There is a folder in the kitchen which gives very clear information on what is expected for the guests during the stay, including where to take the trash, how many towels are available for guests, etc. It took the guess work out of trying to figure out what we needed to do upon check-out. The towels are sparse…but not a problem since we could wash these each night – and frankly, I was fine with that because I knew my family had clean towels each morning. We didn’t cook, but the kitchen appeared to have everything that would be needed for a guest during a short-term stay – plates, cups, silverware, pots, pans, knives, cooking utensils, etc. We have no complaints about our stay.

The elevator access from the parking area is with room key only which really did give a feeling of a more secure area. The condos are located very near shopping and dining, just a short walk away. When we return back to Gatlinburg; Baskins Creek Condominiums will be our first choice! We would absolutely recommend to anyone!

Beautifully decorated. 3 hangers (???) in the master bedroom closet . NO potholders in the kitchen or dishcloth OR DISHBRUSH!!!???? Also NO CUTTINGBOARD. Kinda' hard to cook and serve. Also IF noone has thought of it ( a coffee thermos) would be a nice asset ( since I drink decaffe coffee and 2 others in our group drink regular and for some odd reason we all want coffee at the same time......

Now known as the Mountain Vista Luxury Rentals (www.mvlr.com) 4 of us stayed here in June for the "Nail Tech Networking Event of the Smokies" & everything was top notch. I really liked the added security of having to use your condo key to access the elevator, too. I can't think of 1 thing to complain about! We stayed in a top floor 3 BR/3BA condo overlooking downtown Gatlinurg & we had such a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend others try it out. We'll definitely stay here again.

The condos are clean, with modern decor that is in short supply at other condos we've stayed at in town. I know many of these condos were built back in the 80's, but for the love of God they don't have to stay there! Is there a law against remodeling or are the people too cheap to tear down the country blue & mauve flowered border? And get rid of the fake plants, brass fixtures, country knick-knacks, and lace doilies, too! Ooops...sorry to get off track.

One of the best things I like is that you can view each condo online & pick which unit you'd like to stay in. It's a fairly short walk to downtown & if you look for the small sign (as you walk downtown on Cherokee Orchard Rd. it'll be on your left) pointing you to "The Village" you can take this shortcut past all the quaint shops, which will lead you right out onto the Parkway near the Pancake Pantry (THE best pancakes ever)!

Room Tip: Visit www.mvlr.com to see all the individual condos available, as they're all different.
