Was VERY Nice , Cabin Was Clean, Cozy, Quite. The Simple Sound Of The Creek Running Was So Peaceful. It Was Definitely Worth The Trip.
We has a wonderful stay at the cabin, when i woke up the first morning and came around the corner the sunshine was amazing coming in through the windows, i was sold. This was a much needed vacation and the cabin was the icing on the cake. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to vacation in the smokies. You get a birds eye view from the deck.
The good parts. Works well for a dog. Was very clean. Well appointed. Good Wifi. Towels and soaps nice. Great sized bathrooms.
The not as great parts. We had one night to be able to enjoy the hot tub based on our other plans and it quit working when we went to use it. The fireplace is not really enjoyable from the couch. It is in front of the front door. Thought that more of the right furniture would help address this. Couch did not have enough support. It is on a timer and we did not like having to get up to turn it on once we were snuggled in. Tv is kind of small and positioned too high up on the wall across from the couch. I thought the road noise was going to be easy to never mind, but it was surprising how many noisy box trucks banged over bumps in the road. I don't think you can really hear the creek that much.
Tips. One could bring a baby gate and put on top of deck to block it so the dog could be loose but had to stay up top. The washer and dryer are pretty loud, so don't plan on doing your laundry at night. Hit the supermarket on the way back from Gatlinburg. Highly recommend the fried chicken at the deli there for a quick dinner night in. I realize this may be strange, but it rivaled many fast food places. This is not a traditional cabin feel. It is quaint, though. The master bed is very soft and the other bed is too hard. Goldilocks could not find a bed that was just right.
My husband and I needed a weekend getaway out of Nashville and this rental was the perfect spot! We loved the view of the creek! The sound of the water rushing by was so soothing and calming. We had a tiny bit of rain and were able to sit under the porch and soak in the hot tub while waiting for the rain to subside. Even though it was only the two of us, the rental was absolutely perfect for two families. We are definitely going to come back and rent it again and bring friends next time. Thank you Anita for such a great place and such great service!
it was our first time at the smoky mountains and we had a bit of trepidation on renting a cabin rather than a hotel. But the pictures looked good and there were a lot of good reviews, so we chose this one.
When we got there, we were delighted to see how nice the place was and we were immediately put at ease.
It's in a quiet, isolated and private location, right next to a creek. It was very cozy for our family of four, with a small kitchen and dining area for those times when we didn't want to eat out. But when we wanted to get out for dining or other activities, we had easy access to East Pkwy to get out.
Because our cellphone service is very spotty in the area, we were very happy that there was free access to WiFi internet. The cabin had lots of other amenities, including a hot tub, which we made use of. All the windows gave great natural lighting and a view of the surrounding trees. And having the two bathrooms was a boon having two teenage daughters.
Just one minor quibble that we had. The mattress in the main bedroom was too soft and squishy for our taste, but that's probably a personal preference. The mattress in the second bedroom was nice and firm.
What a beautiful cabin in a quiet, relaxing setting. The location of the cabin is easy to find with no close neighbors. This was a blessing with small children as they could play without disturbing others. The sounds of the creek were relaxing and made for a pleasant view from the front porch.
The cabin was clean and in order when we arrived. The kitchen had all items needed to prepare a meal. (The nearby grocery store was AWESOME!!) We cooked at least one meal each day. Anita was very accommodating and even called to check in while we were there. I believe that we will be back!
What a wonderful get away to retreat to after a lovely day in the Smoky Mountains! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with our family...it was a delight!
