Cabin was wonderful

It took a while for the air to kick on and for the lower floors to cool down and some of the remotes did not have working batteries

The entire family had an awesome time. The view from the balcony in the morning when the sun is coming up over the mountains to the east is in-describable. The sun cresting the mountains with the Smoky mist in the valley was by far one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen. My wife had been planning this trip for over a year with the intent of having all the kids together for thanksgiving for the first time. Mission accomplished. The area is great with easy access to local entertainment, food, shopping and anything else we needed to make the trip a success. As suggested we brought several items from our own kitchen to cook the thanksgiving feast to include an oil-less fryer and some bake wear so the cooking and the meal went off without a hitch. My only concern during the whole 5 days in the cabin were the minor nit-picky details that I don't feel we should have to deal with considering how much we paid for the accommodations. We found missing towel racks in the bathroom with the hardware still mounted to the wall. We had a kitchen drawer fall into the cabinet due to the rail system falling apart. We moved the dining room table to make room for all of our guests to sit around the table and 2 of the legs just fell off. I reported this to customer service and they dispatched a repair man within the hour to help us out and repair the table. We found the sound system in the theater room was top notch, but the advertised Blue-Ray equipment was nowhere to be found. The only thing available in the theater room was local cable. So not to be defeated we found an HDMI port and hooked up my laptop and used the WIFI to access my Netflix account. So no harm no foul, we made it work. In my opinion I think the cabin could use a top to bottom review and maintenance check to smooth out some rough edges that cropped up due to wear and tear. For example, the bottom rack in the oven is a little precarious since it appears to be 2 smaller racks from a gas grill wired together to replace the original oven rack. The kids had a blast on the putt-putt course, but again minor issue since we had plenty of putters but only 2 balls. So we made due and they played a best ball team game. My final point is this. We had a great family trip and would do it all again. Family is the point and the best part of the trip. That being said for the money and what was advertised the cabin fell below expectations.

I have always loved it there and staying in a beautiful cabin makes it better and was just great.

The mattresses need to be replaced. The weeds and brush needs to be trimmed outside around the basement/putt putt area.

The cabin Beyond Expectations lived up to its name!
Tina S. Jul 2018
One of the reasons we selected Beyond Expectations was that it had put put golf. When we arrived the room had many cob webs, putters thrown around the room and some sort of liquid in the holes. One of the pool ques was broken and the kitchen baseboard was laying on the floor. A man came to repair a water leak but did not know where the leak was nor did we until the end of our stay when it rained so hard the front window in the master bedroom leaked the entire storm.

No hassle check-in and check-out; was able to conduct all of the rental business online and go straight to the cabin. All pertinent information was provided to me via email. Cabin was nice and clean and just as described.

Great app, communication, cabin
AMANDA AND ADAM M. Dec 2017
The cabin was fantastic. The tree was beautiful and the new equipment in the theater room was great!! There were a few things that could be improved upon. The dishwasher needs replaced. It doesn't clean the dishes well. There were lots of bugs in the cabin!

The view from the rental was outstanding, the cabin could use some TLC. The staff responded quickly to the things that needed to be fixed - one of them was pretty major - the movie projector didn't work until the 5th night of our vacation.

It was an awesome cabin, but more than we needed. Will scale down some on next visit.

i stayed here with some friends over the Super Bowl weekend. I loved waking up to the large picture windows and have my coffee and just look out. i can imagine how this view would look in the Fall, must be amazing. The theater room was perfect for relaxing at the end of the night. It seems that it has just been recently upgraded too, picture was clear and sound was amazing. dont forget to bring down the snacks and drinks...they have a mini fridge and microwave down there too!! its also pretty cool that you can bring your gaming system and play it in the theater room, if that's what you are in to. I enjoyed the multi-game arcade machine, it was very nostalgic playing all the games i grew up with, I love me some Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga. i like the multi level layout, kids can play in one area while adults relax in another. Plenty of space for everyone, and finding some private space isn't difficult. You really cant ask for more here, it has everything you need, and the location is good too. i cant wait to come back with my kids next time!!!

This cabin is beautiful!!! The new owners have made some great upgrades for example new projection in theatre room, new Flat screen in living and added a multicade that my kids loved.. The view is spectacular.. already booking my next visit!!

My family has traveled to the Smoky Mountains for the last 10 years, and I have never stayed at a cabin as awesome as this one. We plan to return to Beyond Expectations again and again. The cabin has the most incredible views from 4 separate decks! The theater room was like being at your own private theater. It has surround sound, a DVD/Blu-Ray player, a huge screen, and a projector with all the bells and whistles. Bring your gaming system... (so cool on the big screen!). We brought air mattresses with us, so the kids insisted on sleeping in the theater room for our entire stay. You can easily fit up to 20 people in this cabin. It was hard to tear the kids (and my husband) away from all the entertainment. My sons were on the multicade for hours. The putt-putt room is easily accessible on the bottom floor. We can't wait to go back next summer with our entire family. I'm hearing that many improvements have been made, so disregard the earlier reviews. Trust me, Beyond Expectations is a gem!

We absolutely loved our cabin.

This was our first time to the Smoky Mountains. We stayed in "beyond expectations' and absolutely loved it. The views were incredible. My kids loved the gold, theater room, and game room. Definitely thinking of going back next year for Christmas again.

Leaks in all bedrooms when it rains

The family loved all of the amenities, views, hot tub, decor etc.. I left the housekeepers a suggestion list that could improve your future renters to enjoy themselves more. The putting putt course was a BIG HIT!!!But it needed sweeping off which my husband,daughter-in-law & I did, & brushed down the SPIDER WEBS! There need to be a few more hooks in the bathrooms to hang towels & washcloths on for a family of 10. The dining room table needs tightened up. The soap dispenser in the dishwasher doesn't release the dish detergent, had to to just put all soap in the prewash container. The jack & Jill bathroom doesn't flush well. The game room bathroom sink barely drains --could be clogged up some. Last thing, we didn't have ANY LIDS AT ALL to put on the trash cans outside. So we took our trash to the putting putt room until we checked out. Then when we checked out we put the garbage in the cans on the porch. We had an enjoyable time & we would consider renting the house again whenever we can get everyone back together again.
