This cabin is everything the other reviewers say it is and more. The owners clearly take pride in it and go the extra mile to ensure their guests feel right at home. In addition to all the amenities listed in the cabin description, it was the little things that made our stay so enjoyable. There was a very nice selection of DVD's to choose from, lots of books & magazines, and the cabin is very tastefully decorated with local art work, knickknacks, etc. Even popcorn was provided. We made use of the steam shower, hot tub, and the pool table. As other reviewers have noted, everything was squeaky clean. There are multiple general stores and local eateries nearby, and the short drive into Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge is most enjoyable with all the scenery.
December is an excellent time to visit Gatlinburg as there is no traffic and the restaurants are not packed. We had dinner at the Cherokee Grill and also the Best Italian Cafe & Pizzeria, both of which were excellent. Breakfast was at the Log Cabin Pancake House in Pigeon Forge, which was also very good.
We will definitely be booking a future stay at this cabin. Thanks Neal for your hospitality.
Owner's Response: Kevin, I am pleased that you enjoyed yourselves at the cabin and thank you for the review. We are a small operation. We have one cabin and one lady, Cheri, who cleans it. She is always reliable and consistent. We could not provide you with the experience you had without her.
Like you, I especially enjoy the drive into Gatlinburg through the National Park. It has the most beautiful scenery and unlike most drives, I am not in a hurry to get there. The restaurants that you mentioned are top notch. We love the Cherokee Grill - great food. The Best Italian is one of those Mom & Pops that has been in Gatlinburg forever, serves outstanding food, and most tourists don't even know it's there. It's nothing fancy and popular with local people.
