Rachel B. Apr 2022
Our family of five (kids 8, 6, and almost 2) had a wonderful stay at A True Dream. The view is wonderful and it was so nice to breathe fresh mountain air as we relaxed. We enjoyed the many game options and my kids loved that the house had cable TV and many streaming apps.

There are just a few tweaks that would make this the perfect vacation rental. The kitchen is missing an oven mitt, baking sheet, and large pot (like what you'd use to boil spaghetti). We loved that the house was well-stocked with linens, but the extra blankets took up four of the six dresser drawers in the first floor bedroom (it would be great if they were moved into a storage bag in the closet).
Manager response:
Rachel, we are so glad that we succeeded in making your travel experience a memorable one and we appreciate you letting us know how we can improve. We have shared your feedback with the homeowner for consideration, and we look forward to welcoming you back during your next stay in the area!

With 3 kids and 3 adults this cabin suited us just fine.
Loved: the spectacular view(can’t say enough about it), the gaming room which kept the kiddos occupied in the evening, the easy paved drive up the mountain and the cabin was clean(bedding was clean and extras left if needed as well as towels). The beds were comfortable and when we were leaving on the last day 3 new beds were being delivered. A hair dryer was there for use and a heated bidet in the upstairs bathroom.
Not so much: the hot tub, as in prior reviews it did have a musty smell and did cause us to cough while in the water. We were in it for about 10 min and that was the only time during our trip. The upstairs shower did not drain on the first night but a quick call and it was fixed first thing in the morning by a very nice gentleman. The dryer took awhile to dry the clothes but not a big deal.
All in all we would definitely stay here again, it was close to everything yet quiet even with other cabins surrounding us. The pizza parlor down the road was convenient that first night for dinner.
Manager response:
Hello Jason, thank you for your feedback. We are so pleased to hear you had a good stay at our home. Our maintenance team will look at the hot tub and the dryer to make sure they are resolved. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

We loved the place. Beautiful view atop the mountain. Easy access to Dollywood and the local stuff. Very clean accommodations. Would definitely use again

Nice cabin with a good amount of space and a great view.
Vess M. Mar 2022
This cabin is a True Dream! We loved this cabin and it was very clean and beautiful! The customer service was excellent! Definitely be returning soon
Chad E. Nov 2021
Nice cabin with a great view.
My only complaint is the rock hard bed. Seriously…it’s like sleeping on plywood.
Anthony G. Oct 2021
Cabin was great with amazing views, and within reasonable driving distance of all the hot spots... Our only complaint would be that the beds were extremely firm to the point of resorting to sleeping on the couch the last few nights.
PATRICIA L. Oct 2021
My family and I loved the cabin. We stayed 3 days. Loved the game room. Everything was perfect. Only two complaints:
1. we were only able to stay in the hot tub for about 10 mins and never used it again. My daughter and I experienced tingly noses and throats and started coughing. It was like we were inhaling chemicals and they were affecting us. It was the weirdest sensation and quite scary. I believe it could have been bleach? Whatever it was instantly hit us upon entering and we got out soon after.
2. In the game room, if you look up to the highest window in the middle above the door there are huge spiderwebs/cobwebs. I thought they were outside at first, but then noticed it was INSIDE! eeek! Some deep cleaning could be done up near the ceilings.
Given these complaints, we would still love to come back in the future and upon posting photos on my social media I had several friends reach out to ask for more info on the place, which I was happy to share with them.

We (family of 2 adults and 2 kids) stayed here for 3 nights and we absolutely loved it. Great mountain views from the balconies and watching sunrise in the morning was a great experience. Amenities were good and cleanly maintained. Did not experience any problems with entry code and Wi-Fi. Kids had so much fun in the game room. Wish we had more time to stay and enjoy.
Jeff M. Sep 2021
Great place! Definitely makes us want to come back again. Gaming amenities and hot tub / sauna amenities were nice.
Michael K. Sep 2021
Vacasa made this a wonderful experience. The house was perfect for us, clean, fun and incredible views from both decks. The hot tub was amazing too. I HIGHLY recommend using Vacasa and make your next vacation A True Dream:)
Brett E. Aug 2021
The views from the patios are beautiful. The location puts you just far away from the Pigeon Forge strip, but close enough for plenty of trips back and forth if needed. Easy access in, kitchen is very nice. Loved having a pool table and arcade game ( Galaga and Ms. Pac-Man) and the hot tube was just what we needed after a long day out and our long drive to get there.
Michael C. Jul 2021
This cabin has a stunning view and is conveniently located. Our teenagers loved the game room and had plenty of things to keep them entertained, which was wonderful! We didn’t like that the jacuzzi tub was in the upstairs bathroom with the game room & kids beds instead of with the master bedroom downstairs. We expected the nicer tub to be in the master bath so that it could be enjoyed by the adults. The hot tub was nice but located on the upstairs desk outside the game room with no blinds on the windows facing the deck/hot tub. We found that a little unusual. I wish we had known that ahead of time and we might have found a different cabin with a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom in order for mom and dad to have some privacy. A nice addition to the cabin would be blinds on the windows separating the game room from the deck.
We chose to give the cabin four stars instead of five because it wasn’t very clean. The sheets and quilt on the king size bed had not been washed from previous guests, the windows were dirty and there were numerous large cobwebs throughout the cabin. For the price of renting, we expected cleanliness, especially the bedding!
Overall, a very nice cabin and location but had a strange layout and did not mean our expectations for cleanliness.
Manager response:
We apologize if you felt the home was not on par with our cleanliness standards. We would have been happy to address any areas in need of additional attention during your stay had we been notified. We look forward to hosting you again!
Scotty R. Jul 2021
It was very nice and quiet no problems except the hot tub was very cloudy and green looking so me and my fiancée opted not to use it but besides that it made for a great getaway and we would do it again for certain.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us, Scotty. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the home, and we truly appreciate your generous review! Our local staff has addressed your concerns with the hot tub to ensure a better quality of experiences for future guests. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again!
Carla L. Jul 2021

Loved our stay. Beautiful view!
Donovan B. Mar 2021
Great location, very clean and beautiful view.
Nikolas C. Mar 2021
We loved everything about the cabin. The views were breathtaking. Only issues were upstairs toilet would not stop running or fill with water. Could have been a little cleaner or would have been five stars. Would return.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Nikolas! Maintenance is taking care of the toilet. We hope to see you again!
Ralph S. Jan 2021
Love the view & all the games upstairs. A clean cabin. A few “to repairs”. The door knobs need to be tightened going to, both, rear exits. You must hold the toilet flush tab to completely flush the toilet. Will definitely visit this area again.
Mallori B. Nov 2020
Absolutely perfect cabin! Spacious, clean, and so much fun! We had two adults and two kids (10,5) and the game room was perfect! Thanks for the best week!
Denise A. Oct 2020
Left feedback with Vacasa about the following. Spider webs in Master bedroom on pictures. Windows need cleaning so you can see outside to the beautiful view. Hot tub smelled of really strong bleach didn’t get in. Comforters are old really old and worn down. The beds are hard as a rock and uncomfortable. The cabin as a whole is built well and has a lovely view.
Manager response:
Hello, Denise! Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the view of the home during your stay. We value your feedback and suggestions surrounding the condition and cleanliness of the home and are working with our local staff to address these concerns. We hope to host you again in the future!
Todd R. Oct 2020
Beautiful cabin with outstanding views! A True Dream had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway in the Smokies. The location is close to area attractions, shopping and restaurants while still being a short distance away in a quiet neighborhood. The furnishings in the cabin are comfortable. We also enjoyed the game room on the second floor with a pool table and video arcade machine. We did not use the hot tub during our stay so cannot comment on it. Kitchen had everything we needed and the cabin has a nice washer and clothes dryer. Reservations were easy, as well as check-in and check-out. The unit was very clean.
Dalshad Q. Jul 2020
Just wondering all together!

Traci B. Mar 2020
Everything was perfect... kids enjoyed the huge loft area with games for all. Everything was clean, neatly decorated, cozy feel for a week stay. Would reccomend this to anyone and would definitely stay again!
Jason C. Jan 2020
This place had an absolutely outstanding view. The cabin was beautiful, comfortable, quiet, and relaxing. We enjoyed the game room upstairs, the hot tub on the deck, the sunrises, the jetted tub, the kitchen, etc. It was a fantastic stay.
Jontaveus C. Jan 2020
Great view, I really enjoyed the cabin would definitely go back
Beth G. Jan 2020
Perfect home for our family of 5 (mom, dad, kids ages 6, 8 & 11). Close to town but still secluded. Amazing views! Awesome game room.
Brittany C. Dec 2019
My family and I stayed here for 4 days, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It is a beautiful cabin, with an even better view. It was close to all of the entertainment, but far enough out to give you a secluded feel. We would definitely recommend this cabin!
Cody H. Dec 2019
My wife and I booked this cabin for a week and it was wonderful. The view is amazing even on cloudy days. It was very clean and smelled exactly like my grandparents log home in northern Michigan. I would suggest to bring extra laundry soap if you plan on doing more than one load or just in case. They do supply laundry detergent, but for only 1 load. My wife and I really enjoyed all of the games that were provided, pool, air hockey, foosball, and Pacman. The cabin is in a perfect location, not far from Gatlinburg. The service was wonderful. Everytime we called we got a quick response. We did need an engineer to come out and they came out same day and fixed our issue. Also, there were people in the cabins around us and it was very quite. We sat outside on the balcony a couple of nights and heard nothing. It was wonderful. I would most definitely stay here again. I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone, even if you have little ones.

The cabin was perfect for our vacation and the area was peaceful. We loved the views and we felt right at home.
Christine P. Jun 2018
The cabin was beautiful and clean. It was just as expected from the online pics. The only issue was the master bed was not comfortable. It has obvious wear/sagging and we woke with backaches.

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.

This is at least our 6th stay at A True Dream and every stayhas been excellent. Although we did experience a problem with the master bedroom bed which needs to be replaced all other areas were super.
