With ample space for up to 46 guests, this Gatlinburg home provides a wonderful home base for your next family reunion or group getaway to the Great Smoky Mountains. Rustic details, including a stone fireplace, a wood-beamed ceiling, and walls adorned with real bark, balance such contemporary comforts as a home theater, a private hot tub, and an open-concept great room. On the main floor, guests can choose from two bedrooms with one futon per room as well. The lower floor features four bedrooms, each with a king bed and a futon. The highest level includes two bedrooms (each with two sets of bunk beds with a queen size bed on each level) in addition to three futons in the common area. Out on the deck, you can take in the fresh mountain air, challenge family and friends to a game of billiards, or go for a swim in the shared pool.

All of the rooms were large with plenty of room in common areas for guests to gather. Plenty of towels, pillows, and blankets. While lightweight, the blankets were warm and the beds were comfy. Lots of kitchen alliances and room to cook.

Cons- Outdoor bugs do come in, so you will find Palmetto bugs inside. Water pressure isn’t fantastic, but does the job. No hangers in the closets, so unless you bring or buy some, don’t plan on hanging anything.

Pro or con depending on how you look at it: there is wooded area around you, so we did have a visiting family of bears in the morning and evening. It was a mama and two cubs. Lock your car doors because they can climb in, and look both ways before exiting the cabin during those hours! Fun to watch from the balcony though!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Dawn. We are happy to hear that you got to see some wildlife and enjoyed your stay. We will give your feedback about the water pressure and hangers to the local staff for further review. We apologize that you encountered some palmetto bugs, we do clean for them between each rental but they can get in when doors are opened. We hope we will have the opportunity to host you again in the future for a truly relaxing stay.

The cabin was spacious and clean. Only minutes away from the strip.

Place was amazing. Perfect space for the 22 adults and 10 kids we had staying there. Will be booking again same time next year for sure.

Very spacious! We loved that every room had a private bathroom. Location is great, and close to downtown. Note that the walk is on a steep incline/decline so it may not be suitable for elderly. We had a couple issues during the stay in regards to clenliness and the clogged kitchen sink, but customer service sent someone out very quickly.

The Mighty Crabapple Manor was perfect for our extended family getaway. We had 28 people, so there was plenty of room for us to spread out. It was nice that all of the adult couples were able to have their own room with a King bed and connecting bathroom. The kids loved the pool, hot tub and movie theater so much, that they didn't want to explore the other fun Gatlinburg had to offer. We finally got them out of the house and walked to the main strip in 10-15 minutes. Pack your sneakers though, because the hills are steep! I do have constructive feedback regarding the lack of response to my email and spending 2 hours on hold trying to connect with someone before our stay. I had some general questions about the property that weren't answered online, and I wasn't able to talk to anyone. This was our first time staying in a family cabin of this sort, so it certainly would have been helpful to speak to someone before our trip. A few items were broken (pool sticks, arcade game, can opener), but overall the home and amenities were excellent! We enjoyed ourselves so much, that we added an extra night while we were there. We would certainly recommend The Mighty Crabapple Manor and we look forward to staying there again.

The cabin was very clean and up to date. The location of the cabin made it very easy to commute, especially during inclement weather. It was well equipped with the essentials needed. We will definitely book The Mighty Crabapple Manor again!

Our extended family stayed at this cabin for Christmas. We had such a wonderful time. The cabin was absolutely perfect! We had everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen was stocked very well with everything you could possibly need. There are three coffee makers, which was a nice touch for our large crowd. There were also plenty of towels and wash clothes. I would definitely recommend The Mighty Crab Apple!! I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

The cabin was perfectly layed out for our family Christmas. Plenty of space to eat and sit/chat. We only had 23 people when it says 40+ but it worked great for us. The place was clean and ready early during check in. Only minor issues occurred. Some door handles were messed up and some of the tubs didn't drain as well as I had expected but overall everything was great. The cabin is not up in the mountains so it does not have a spectacular view. However, it is walking distance to the Gatlinburg strip which evened that out a bit. The cabin was absolutely amazing!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Josh! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you bringing these items to our attention. The tub drain has been cleared and the bedroom door handle has been repaired. We hope to host you again soon!

The cabin is so nice! I love the kitchen and how open it is. Our family loved that fact it was a bathroom in each room. Perfect for a large family, especially when everyone is getting ready for an outing.
Elouise S. Jul 2019
The level of communication throughout the entire process.
Joseph M. Jul 2019
Our family loved the space of the cabin and how up to date it was. So much room for everyone
Lakeysha S. Apr 2019
The cabin was absolutely gorgeous. The little details mattered such as plushness of the couches, eating area outside, creative ways to capture the bees or hornets, dishes, small appliances and up to date aesthetics. The family wall décor was a nice touch. Linen and towels were clean. As well as bathrooms and stocked with tissue needed.

The rental was very nice, in good repair and in a great location, easy to walk to downtown Gatlinburg.

First off any place that supports the military discount is a plus but the way it was set up was amazing

Cabin wasn't really clean
Manager response:
We're very sorry for the inconvenience during your stay. This issue occurred under a previous management company. Our local teams are working with that company to learn from feedback and fix any issues. We just started managing this unit and would love for you to try staying with Vacasa in the future to experience our world class service.

Great house Family enjoyed time together.
Stefanie T. Jul 2018
Loved the accommodations
Latoya T. Jun 2018
The house was very beautiful and worked extremely well for our large family. There was enough space for all of us to meet on the main floor with all of the seating in the family room and kitchen. My only concern was there was no pantry in the kitchen or storage space for food that was bought that did not go in the refrigerator. Also, the couches and beds not having non slip pads underneath the feet of them.
