We booked this cabin on a last minute surprise romantic getaway for our anniversary. We absolutely loved this place. The only thing you need to keep on mind is the water is sulfur water. The smell was hard to deal with but overall it was perfect. We even sent our kids up here to spend the night in the cabin beside us the next night.
I had difficulty finding the cabin. I clicked the link in the email for my GPS direction, and it was very wrong! We were still 7 miles away, but that didn't stop us from driving down a dirt road into the woods and getting stuck for 45 min. When we finally got back to the road and headed in the right direction based off of verbal directions, we found it, had a great time, and a funny story to tell. In the future, I would suggest getting road names for the intersection you turn at so the GPS doesn't steer you wrong!
We had an absolute blast during our stay at the Watermelon Cabin. We booked the cabin to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and it was the perfect place for the occasion. It is not directly on the road giving you some privacy and the nature feel. You're surrounded by woods and the peace and quiet of the mountains.
As we walked in, we found everything to be very clean and the hot tub was already warming up for us outside. The size of the cabin was perfect for us. We loved that everything we needed was in one big cozy room. Kitchen with microwave and fridge, a nice warm fireplace, a kitchen table to eat our meals, a comfy loveseat, an awesome big bathtub and a comfortable bed.
All in all we were very satisfied with the cabin and are definitely planning on coming back!
Very comfortable but should have more towels, TP for guests staying extended periods. Was told cabin was in Gatlinburg, but was actually Severville,
Best travel experience ever! Cabin is in a beautiful location and convenient to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The sound of the creek while drinking coffee or wine on the porch swing was a great perk. Hot tub after a long day of hiking was divine. Cabin was clean and well cared for. We hope to be back same time next year!
You couldn't ask for better sights and sounds around the cabin. We cooked on the grill every night. We had an amazing stay! We plan to return soon because we can't stop talking about it. The cabin was nice and clean when we got there. If you want the views and don't need all the bells and whistles you won't regret staying here.
We stayed at the Watermelon Cabin while visiting Gatlinburg to get married. We brought our two dachshunds so we were glad to find such a wonderful place that was pet friendly. The cabin was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It is a small cozy cabin which was perfect for two people. We did not try the heart shaped jacuzzi tub, but it looked well maintained & clean. The hot tub was located a short way from the cabin under a gazebo. We spent quite a bit of time out there. Very clean and a perfect spot to relax. The porch swing was a perfect place to drink our coffee in the morning. The cabin was very tastefully decorated and had a nice honey feel. We liked that it was secluded without having to use first gear to be able to get to it (although the drive is a little steep, which is to be expected in the mountains). The owners were very accommodating with my many questions and even allowed us to check in early. We LOVED our visit there and would highly recommend staying there!!
