Josh G. Mar 2021
Nice tidy cabin, secluded but close to everything , honestly was a perfect place in my opinion , cabin was good for my gf and our 2 kids , fully furnished , wifi was kinda spotty, which is expected in the mountains but cable was good and everything was clean , had all the home necessities , overall worth the money.

Nice view, clean cabin and hot water, we recommend it.. thanks...
Zachary M. Oct 2020
I really liked the convenience of how close the cabin was to downtown Gatlinburg and also right around the corner is a neat little shop that makes homemade brooms and walking sticks. That’s really all I liked about it.
Manager response:

Joei B. Oct 2020
We can not wait to stay in this cabin again. It was perfect for my family.
Ashley S. Aug 2020
We loved that the house was secluded! We didn’t hear much at all. The Mountain View was beautiful! It was fully stocked with everything we needed. The beds were squeaky but hey it’s cabin life. Loved the full size washer and dryer. The grocery store was very close. We can’t wait to come back next year!
Carrie S. Aug 2020
the view was good the distance from town great! The sofa bed was not usable the boys ended up sleeping on the floor. The internet never worked the entire stay
Manager response:

Centrally located to the Smokie Mountains with a nice little view from the porch. May even see a Bear on the road to the cabin.
Josh F. Jul 2020
We loved the cabin except wifi didnt work the entire stay of five days. Other than that vacasa was slow at fixing issue with master bedroom toilet. Other than vacasa the cabin was great
Manager response:

We were really disappointed with the floors and overall cleanliness of the cabin. Our socks and feet were black within a few minutes of walking around on the floors. This bothered me with a toddler playing on the floors a lot. There were also a lot of cobwebs in the shower. I expected it to be cleaner considering the $ that we paid. Next time, we'll stay in a resort or a higher end cabin. I killed 5 wasps that were coming through the hole in the wall for the cable. A quick shot of caulk on the outside would stop that. The furniture left a lot to be desired as well. The kitchen chairs were crooked and wobbly and a glyder in the living room was sitting at a weird angle, so we didn't use it. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but it wasn't what we had hoped for or expected. The location was really nice. It is isolated, and easy to get to and access gatlinburg and pigeon forge.
Manager response:

Beautiful home and views. My family and I will be back next year!
Kathy M. Jul 2020
This cabin was cozy and comfortable. It was well stocked with just about everything you would need if you plan on cooking or grilling on site. Our favorite part of it was coming back in early evening every night after exploring the beautiful mountain byways on our motorcycles to the spacious deck to have our meals and laugh with good friends. The fire pit was a plus! We did have issues with WiFi. The mornings seemed to be the best time to connect. Personally I enjoyed being disconnected. We would definitely stay here again.

The facility did not fulfill the expectations that are being shown. The cabin had a awful smell the whole time we were there, the cleanest of the place was terrible, there was food still left on the place for the past renters, the towels and the bed sheets smell bad. The WiFi did not work at all and we were charged for this. I payed many fees for a good cabin that was meant to fit 6 people, however, the pullout couch was broken so 2 people had to sleep on the floor. My family had been in Gatlinburg many times and never had a bad experience until now this cabin was the worst! I wouldn’t recommend no anyone.

Cozy and nicely located, my friends and I enjoyed our stay. The WiFi was pretty spotty, but all other amenities worked well!
Jessie M. Feb 2020
Loved the house and the location
Lucas N. Feb 2020
Cabin was exactly as advertised and very clean, location is great just a short drive to town. Customer service was wonderful we had left something by accident and Vacasa was very helpful in getting it back to us in a timely manner. Will definitely stay here again.
Katie K. Nov 2019
Perfect for our family of 4. Nothing fancy, but a beautiful view of the mountains and a very short drive to Gatlinburg. We would love to stay here again!
Shannon C. Nov 2019
Lazy Creek Retreat was a great place to stay. It was secluded enough to make us feel like we were on our own but a close enough drive to both Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge when we wanted shopping & entertainment. The cabin was very clean (a must in my vacation life) and had everything we needed. We had a great visit and would love to stay there again.
Larry B. Oct 2019
We loved the setting and quiet atmosphere. However, the kitchen needs new set of dishes ( not miss matched ); set of new pots and set of silverware and utensils that are not a conglomerate of odds and ends.
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed the home's quiet and peaceful setting, Larry! We appreciate your feedback and we will make sure all kitchen items and utensils are properly stocked and available as outlined in our check-in details. We look forward to hosting you again!
Shelby B. Sep 2019
Pros: The shower is nice.
The air hockey table was a nice touch.

Cons: The deck had caution tape up only in one spot but giant holes throughout.
The Wi-Fi did not work at all.
The floor was disgusting. It turned my children's feet and socks black.
Most plates/utensils had to be washed before using.
The beds are very uncomfortable.
Manager response:
Thank you for your valuable feedback. It helps us to improve the unit. The manager has made some upgrades and is discussing additional upgrades with the owner. We are sorry you were not comfortable. We hope we can host you again in a unit more suited to your needs.

It was super clean and had everything we needed.
Tammy B. May 2019
This cabin was fantastic! It was very accessable and had two ways out. One way took you into Gatlinburg and the other was closer to Pigeon Forge. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed it very much!
Jessica G. May 2019
We we’re pleasantly surprised when we drove up to the cabin! So homey! We especially loved the air hockey table! We will most definitely stay here again!!

We enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Creek Retreat! The babbling brook on the side of the house made for a relaxing time on the porch and we had a beautiful, unexpected view of the mountains. Lunch on the deck as lovely and the birds were singing the whole time. We had just about everything we needed to stay and cook for ourselves to save money.

A few things we wish were different:
1) In the photos, a wood burning stove is pictured but there is now an electric stove in its place. We didn't need the heat, but we were bummed because we like the rustic feel of wood burning stoves and were surprised that the pictires didn't reflect the change.
2) The cabin says it can sleep 6 but the living room can only seat 4; 3 on the couch and 1 on the rocking chair. It would have been nice to have an extra loveseat adjacent to the entertainment center. A couple of us had to sit on the floor while watching a movie.
3) Upon entry to the home, of course we kicked our shoes and socks off to relax. The floor throughout had some debris that was missed by the last cleaning crew and stuck to our feet.
4) Just as a heads up to the owners, the deck wood needs inspecting/repairing. My stepdad stepped around the octagonal picnic table to sit and felt his foot depress into the wood.

We had alot of fun in Gatlinburg and we were able to come home and relax after each day of activities. I would definitely stay in the Lazy Creek Retreat again.
