The view can’t be beat. The cleanliness left much to be desired. There were human hairs on the pillows and counters. The carpets are dirty in the bedroom and smelled like animal urine. We bought groceries and the refrigerator never cooled and the food spoiled. The beds are as hard as a rock. The indoor hot tub is neat but the heavy chemical smell in the cabin is smothering. GPS will confuse you because the road says “ private drive”. Keep going and you will see it. The view is stunning. Don’t lean on the rails because they wiggle. This cabin needs new carpets and throughly cleaned. We will not be returning to this cabin. We come to the smokies 3-4 times a year. This is the dirtiest place we have ever stayed. We had a 3 night stay. We left a night early due to the heavy chemical smell making my head hurt. I woke up each morning with a migraine. When we arrived and saw the dirty linen we went and bought our own. We determined ourselves to stay as we paid for it. However the chemical smell from the hot tub indoors will overpower you. The second morning I awoke with a splitting headache was the last. I’m writing this review in what should have been the final day of my stay. I am in my comfortable bed at home with NO headache. The views are pretty, the booking process was easy. The cabin needs to be removed until it is cleaned properly and updated.

The view was one of the best! Loved the back patio!
Harley M. Feb 2021
Wonderful view of the Smoky Mountains & see all kinds of wildlife! We were able to see bears the first night! Heard bears & wolves around every night. We saw what we believe was a lynx cat, ran away pretty quick, but that's to be expected. Saw lizards, bats & flying squirrels. If you hear something toward the outside of the master bedroom ceiling, it's the flying squirrel. We watched it shoot up & across the beam just under the the hanging part of the roof. It's their woods, they seem to have made a little nest right next to/ under the overhang roof.
Not too far from local shops & Gatlinburg is about an hour drive for more lively attractions.

Small and cozy, no WIFI.
The cabin could use some updating.

We loved the view..Very peaceful.Had a nice fireplace and relaxing hot tub.
Dean T. Nov 2020
The view can't be beat however, the cabin is in need of a lot of maintenance.

Nasty carpet for one.

Missing rungs on the deck rail poses a very serious risk for toddlers or pets. Could easily fall 20 feet or more.

The entry steps are very akward.

I'm sure motel 6 offers better towels.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay but probably wouldn't stay here again.
Manager response:
Hi, Dean! We appreciate your feedback and want to let you know we are working with the homeowner on getting some updates done this winter. Thank you!

The view was awesome! Peace and quiet surround you. It could of been a little cleaner, a box of tissues would of been nice. Also a hair dryer would of come in handy. I would also recommend a little maintenance on the road. Overall we were happy and would rent again.

The family loved this cabin and its spectacular view. Close to everything we wanted to see and do but far enough away that we felt like we were the only ones in the mountain.
