This is the second time my family has stayed in this house. It’s clean, spacious, centrally located to the strip. This place is equipped with so many amenities. Thank you for making our weekend wonderful.

Entire house was awesome and far exceeded our expectations...we only had eight people and were very comfortable....great location, great views. Would stay here again and highly recommend to anyone else.
Charles g. Apr 2022
A big space with plenty of room for a big family or a couple of families. The space was everything we hoped for! Thank you!
Sitong S. Apr 2022
Great location only a 10 minute walk (pretty hilly) to downtown. Cabin size and number of beds/bathrooms was perfect. All amenities worked well and well suited for a cabin weekend. Only considerable problem we encountered was parking. Our 7 allocated spots weren’t clearly marked and there wasn’t any enforcement so cars from surrounding cabins kept taking our spots which were very much needed given the size of our group and limited parking. Clearer parking directions should be implemented for the entire neighborhood so that all cabins are able to properly park their cars.

Very nice home with lots of room. Close to Rocky Top Sports World with easier access without having to go through downtown Gatlinburg. Walking distance (~10 minutes from downtown).
Hot tub and garbage disposal did not work. Contacted Vacasa who is to remedy this. No hair dryers found, so you may want to bring your own. Also, bring blankets if using futons (some available but may not be enough) and thermostat seemed to change temperature automatically. There is no welcome book to guide you on operating things within home or important numbers (info via app/email). Great for big groups with ability to congregate together or divide up between floors in smaller groups.

This home was everything it said it was. We were down in Gatlinburg for our wedding and the house was great for the 30 of us. Everyone had there own space if they needed it. The kitchen was stocked with almost everything we needed we had to buy garbage bags but that was no big deal. The walk from the house to downtown isn’t bad at all.
I would recommend staying here with a group everyone will have a blast!
Marshellyica W. Feb 2022
My group and I traveled to Gatlinburg to celebrate a few birthdays for the weekend. We had an amazing time, the house was very clean and in a perfect location. It was also spacious for a group of 25. One day we all walked to downtown Gatlinburg in about 7 mins. We were also not too far from Ober Gatlinburg which is where we went snow tubing. We did have some issues with the fridge and the garbage disposal but maintenance was sent out within an hour of calling the customer service line. If you want to visit a cabin that doesn't exclude you from humanity or look like you are driving into a scary movie this place is highly recommended.

Spacious. Location. Cleanliness
Davidra B. Nov 2021
We absolutely loved this home. It was so comfortable and relaxing. Our family is planning on renting the exact cabin again. There were a few minor issues and that were appropriate address with maintenance.
Vickey D. Oct 2021
Nice layout. Big kitchen. Lovely porches. Great sleeping accommodations.
Stacy D. Oct 2021
Clean, good use of space, good location and a great price!
Jeff S. Sep 2021
Home was well furnished to support our large family. Kitchen had plenty of accessories, dining area plenty of sitting space, bathroom had plenty of towels and toiletries available. Only issue we had with the home is a couple spots on floor that had flooring broken and missing and a fan in a bedroom that was loose to the ceiling. But nothing that negatively impacted our stay. The home was close to town allowing us to walk. It was also close to many hiking trails. We were also able to see bears from our back porch. Would recommend this home to others that plan to visit Gatlinburg.
Manager response:
We are so glad you stayed with us, Jeff. Maintenance is inspecting the flooring and ceiling fan so necessary repairs can be done. Thank you!
Tammy A. Sep 2021
We really enjoyed our family reunion at The Great Dogwood Manor. The house was clean and very well stocked with needed supplies such as toilet tissue, trash bags etc. It was a quick 15 minute walk to the main strip in Gatlinburg. We even saw a small black bear roaming near the house. We would definitely recommend this house. The only concern we had was we wanted to get in the house a couple of hours early, the house was empty and clean and the company refused. We offered to pay extra to be able to get in at 2:00 pm. It was frustrating as we had families coming from 5 different states and had hours to kill with groceries in the car. Once again, let me assure you the house was great.
Bryan F. Aug 2021
The cabin is in a great location and met our needs well.
Loretta W. Aug 2021
The house was nice and big and. In walking distance to many attractions. The issues were that flooring in 3 of the rooms. were torn. Ceiling fan. Wires were hanging out and fans stop. Working on main floor. The hand re ails were loose as well. The game room had missing balls from pool table and the game did not work properly. Other than thwt the house was great
Manager response:
Hello, Loretta, thank you for sharing your review with us. We are glad to hear you overall enjoyed your stay and the location of our home worked well for you. We are sorry about the maintenance issues you encountered and we have made a work order for our maintenance techs to address your concerns before our next renters. We hope we can host you again!
Mostafizur R. Aug 2021
Really enjoyed our stay. We even saw a Bear in the parking lot!
Jennifer B. Aug 2021
We really valued that this place gave us all plenty of room, but also privacy! We traveled to Gatlinburg as 4 independent families to spend the week and it was a great space for us to get together. It had most of the things that we needed in the unit and the porches were amazing! The location was perfect for walking down to the busy strip. We had some issues with parking and people using our spaces. Overall, it is a great place to spend the week.
Stephen H. Jul 2021
The Great Dogwood Manor home was perfect for our family. Our group’s ages had spanned from 4 to 88. The home had something for all ages. It was a big part of the vacation experience! Thank you for helping us make this experience possible!
Eleanor P. Jul 2021
The Great Dogwood Manor was 5 stars. Exceeded my expectations. Location was close to excursions and Gatlinburg strip. Nice cul-de-sac with other cabins. Quiet area. My family had a blast. Would stay there again! Eleanor
Carlos B. Mar 2021
Comfortable, spacious, well maintained. We enjoyed the living room area and the kitchen island gave us an opportunity to sit and talk comfortably with about 12 people.
Matthew S. Feb 2021
This cabin offered everything we needed for a large group. With the double appliances, many bedrooms, and large lay-out, we were able to comfortably fit our large gathering in there. I would highly recommend this cabin! The cabin is only a short walk to downtown Gatlinburg, which was a big bonus!
Vicki C. Jan 2021
The cabin was very large and the kitchen was very nice. It was great that each room had its own bathroom. And overall our large family really enjoyed the cabin. The negatives would be the poor choice in the quality of flooring and the wooden stairs created alot of noise throughout the house.
MILLIE R. Dec 2020
We absolutely loved the cabin. It was beautiful, clean, close to the strip, and accommodated everyone. We would definitely come back again!
Rosetta P. Dec 2020
This is a beautiful cabin. Plenty of bedrooms & bathrooms for a large family or group. The kitchen was fully equipped with of the essential appliances, plates, cups, glasses, pots & pans. My only suggestion will be to make sure all of the television remotes are working. Other than that my family & I really enjoyed our stay.
Rebecca I. Nov 2020
Spacious, clean and location was great for us, we all loved sitting on the back porch.
Nancy F. Nov 2020
We loved this home! Everything we could possibly need was there. And we were thrilled that there were king size beds in almost every bedroom. Walking distance to Gatlinburg. It was truly perfect!
Kelly L. Oct 2020
The amount of space
Whitney H. Sep 2020
Easily accommodated 32 adults and kids. Great location to be able walk and enjoy downtown Gatlinburg and close to National parks and hiking. Kitchen had everything we needed other than griddles that worked but had plenty of large frying pans to use instead. Some areas could have used a more thorough cleaning especially the floors but would not hesitate to rent again for a large family get together.
Sytrena D. Sep 2020
Amazing cabin!! This cabin was beautiful, clean and had great amenities!!
Jeff R. Aug 2020
The cabin itself is incredible. We had a group of baseball families staying together and it provided the accommodations that we were seeking, just as it had advertised. Excellent location and accessibility from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.
Soddy Church of Christ D. Jul 2020
Wonderful stay at an amazing cabin. Great location!!!!
Justin L G. Jun 2020
Love the wood in the cabin. The bedrooms each have a full bath is awesome. Perfect for a family reunion.
Darin M. May 2020
Beautiful cabin, with great location in Gatlinburg. Every bedroom was big and spacious, with big screen TV's. Kids loved the indoor pool. Will definitely book again.
Neiah H. Mar 2020
I so loved the location and the cabin. We had approximately 30 people and this cabin fitted us very comfortably. I love the updated modern touches and the cabin feel mixed in together. I would love to revisit in the near future.
Centerville Church of Christ C. Mar 2020
This cabin was great for our church group of 46. The location is perfect for a busy weekend of shopping and activities. The cabin has plenty of kitchen space, and a decent amount of room for everyone to gather together. Don’t book this expecting glorious mountain vistas, but any true group leader will think this cabin checks all the boxes.
Don S. Mar 2020
This cabin was rented for a company retreat of 10 associates. The 10 bedroms with private ensiutes was perfect for our needs. The large kitchen was well stocked with the exception of measuring spoons. We had to improvise and everything still turned out great. The convenience to downtown Gatlinburg was a hit for most everyone in the group. We will definately consider this cabin for our next meeting.
New Bethel Missionary N. Feb 2020
My church held its 2nd Annual Marriage Retreat and I could not have thought of a better place than the Smokie Mountains! This cabin was beautiful and was equipped with everything we needed! Spacious, luxurious with all the bells and whistles! It accommodated all 10 couples and we all left with a life changing experience that we will remember forever! Can’t wait to start planning next years retreat! We will most definitely be heading back to the mountains!!

When our first cabin rental choice wasn't available for our Smoky Mountain Christmas Family Vacation, we found this company online.

We were able to book a 10 bedroom cabin that could sleep up to 53 guests for a fraction of what others were charging. They also offered great deposit and payment options making this a very affordable accomodation for our 21-person group.

The cabin looked better in person than in the online virtual tour! We particularly loved the bunk bed rooms with the loft and queen bunks! Another great feature were the 2 en suite bedrooms on the main level that suited the two 80 year old matriarchs of our family perfectly!

Each of the King bedrooms had it's own bathroom and there was a common powder room on the main level.

The gourmet kitchen was well stocked with most of the equipment we needed during our weeklong stay. Anything else that we needed was available from the nearby dollar store and grocery store.

Our family really enjoyed the personal hot tub, theater/game room, electric fireplace and indoor pool for guests!

The location was in perfect proximity to both the main attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge! The short, yet hilly, walk to the Gatlinburg Parkway allowed us the exercise needed to walk off all those delicious pancakes and BBQ!!!

One of the most special touches was the Christmas decorations and tree that provided just the right holiday magic to make this one of our best Christmas vacations EVER!!!
India D. Dec 2019
Everything was perfect. Super clean, cozy and comfortable. The staff was awesome. The memories made there are priceless. Looking forward to our next stay. Thanks a bunch 🍃🌺🍃
Kimberly E. Oct 2019
It would have been a 10 if we didn't have to call for trash bags, slates missing from one of the beds downstairs and we also did not have a broom to sweep the floor.
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.
Basil E. Oct 2019
The cabin was awesome with space for 20 people to be together but not be cramped. The kitchen was well equipped. Having 2 dishwashers was great
