This was a great cabin for our large family! We booked this cabin for our family(have 10 children ages 18 down to newborn) and mother-in-law.
The layout worked great for us. The main bedroom was perfect for my MIL who didn't want to do stairs everyday while the Master Suite upstairs was very spacious for my husband and I plus baby in pack n play. Nice whirlpool tub in master suite and hot tub on the main floor deck. The children were all downstairs in the 2 bedrooms and the game room sleeper sofa.
There was plenty to do and the younger ones loved the log cabin playhouse on lower deck. The owners were easy to communicate with and provided all of the info we needed.
The washer and dryer are downstairs in a closet in the game area. They are nice but small. We only washed what we had to and brought the rest home to wash. I like to keep wash done when out plus we don't have to pack as many clothes, but it took too long in the small appliances. Not a problem, just need to be aware of when packing.
The cabin is elevated and on a hill so the parking lot is not level or conducive for kids playing outside, riding scooters, skateboards, etc. Again, not a problem but nice to know if that matters to you. The kitchen had ample space and was nice being off of the living area. There are only 8 seats to sit down and eat in the kitchen but we overflowed into the living area. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to fix meals.
The children loved the Putt-Putt golf that is a part of this resort community and the indoor heated pool. The hills in the resort are not too steep and the roads are wide for traveling. You don't feel like you are about to go off of a mountain as in some resorts. The gated community is very nice for safety. We would highly recommend this property.
The best part: it is only 10 min from the main parkway in Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. We spent 5 of our days at Dollywood with Season passes. Great deal for a family. The Old Mill Restaurant is a great historic/scenic place to eat. It has a waterside view and the grist mill store. They serve a ton of food(even dessert with every meal). It is right off of the Parkway.
We had a great family vacation and look forward to coming back!! Thank you to the Barleman's and Kyle for this amazing cabin in a beautiful resort with a mountain view!!
