We are a group of Brits who stayed at this cabin as part of a three week road trip across the Southern USA. This was by far our favourite place to stay of the vacation! (5* hotels included). It has everything you'd need for a Smoky Mountains getaway, including beautiful scenery/views, hot tub, outdoor grill, multiple dining areas, arcade games, pool table, massive kitchen and a fire pit! There were eight adults in our group and we had tons of space.
It's in a really good location, close to downtown Gatlinburg (where we highly recommend the moonshine tasting at Sugarlands Distillery for the non-drivers!) and it's not far from there to the National Park itself.
We had a wonderful time staying at the Appalachian Escape cabin and it provided a perfect relaxing mini-break in an otherwise hectic vacation!
(P.s. My sister is insisting I mention that the bathtub in the main bathroom is, in her words, phenomenonal)
I booked this home a year in advance and it was worth the wait!! Victoria the owner way always quick to answer questions and her home is just beautiful. We had 4 adults and 4 children staying there and it is so roomy that nobody was on top of each other. The pool table, foosball and arcade machine were a big hit with everyone and it was nice to come back to a hot tub to relax in after running ourselves ragged at Dollywood, the National park and downtown Gatlinburg. My only suggestion to renters is to be prepared to drive about 20 minutes to get into town, so if you need to get food or other supplies, plan on stopping when you are in town. Also, there is a limited amount of free Wi-Fi at the cabin and since we checked in on the 23rd, it was all used up and using my data plan wasn't working either from being in the sticks. I didn't mind because I wanted to unwind and relax, but if you are a social media junkie be prepared to detox! Over, wonderful stay and would definitely rent it again!
The Apilacian Escape was used for the week June 2017 for our wedding reception and family vacation. The owners communicated perfectly. Email, text, phone call were all professional and prompt. Booking, payment and security deposit refund were all easy and automated. The cabin was large, comfy, safe, more than adequately stocked of all supplies, amenities and luxuries. It was clean, organized, and had all updated appliances and electronics. Parking was ample, safe, off-street...the driveway was steep, which is fairly common, but we had no issues navigating. The pictures online don't actually do it justice. It's large and pristine. Fairly easy to get to with about 15-20 min winding roads driving required to either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The area outside was gorgeous and surprisingly useful. Great for kids, family, couples. Bathrooms were large and functional. I'd recommend bringing a few extra blankets and pillow cases if you're gonna have a large group, just for the couches and futons. Also, no hidden fees, clean up costs, etc. I do recommend and it's asked that you clean up before you leave (you know, do unto others...) Look no further!!! This is the place!
Our first cabin experience shared with friends. The Appalachian Escape Cabin went far beyond our expectations. This cabin was perfect for 3 couples, with room for more. The cabin was spotless and all of us talked about the comfort of the beds and layout of the cabin. It was remote but close enough to run to town for supplies. The owners were more then helpful with any needs we had and gave us total privacy. We cannot wait to return and this cabin provided us memories we will always cherish. Thank you Todd and Victoria and God Bless!
The house was immaculate. Everything u will need to have a perfect get away, down to the air freshner. Linen was available to bundle up. Bed was very comfortable and the heated bathroom floor was more than comfortable. The only thing missing was snow! I will definetly be going back.
The cabin was a small piece of heaven for us as we couldn’t ask for more during our week’s stay. Victoria was exceptional and even checked on us during the snow fall, which we were very grateful for. Our children got to encounter and enjoy snow for their first time and found deer tracks, which made it all the more special for them. The establishment, camp fires, cabin activities and the location itself will forever be in our memory as one of the best vacations and places to stay! We will do it again some day!
Beautiful cabin and location! We could not have been happier with our stay! Everything was exactly as described and more!! Would love to stay here again!!
