Guestbook comments from the owner

My cleaning lady (who doesn't even have a key to the closet: I will have one duplicated so she can lock the closet) called me and told me that my personal closet had been opened and looked as if the closet had been gone through. She also said that she checks all the doors every time(including the personal closet) to make sure they are locked before leaving Lynn's Lookout. The personal closet has a dead bolt lock. It is where we keep our personal tools and other necessary things to take care of the cabin for routine maintenance and repair. This is the first time since 2004 that anyone has gone into the closet besides the owner. There is a sign on the door (which the guests saw after they had violated the closet) which says that it is the owner's personal closet (the guests saw the sign after it had been opened). I had called and asked the lady why they had gone into the personal closet. She said that the children had been checking everything out when they first arrived. The husband called back that evening when I was attending a Martins/Mark Lowry concert which I told him when he called. I answered the first question and then I could no longer hear him (which I told him the circumstances) and had to hang up. My cleaning lady said that the deadbolt was locked when she cleaned the cabin before the Fortiers arrived. However, the door was closed and the sign clearly on the door stated "Personal closet". No one has violated the sign since 2004. I hate that these rare kind of things happen (I live 3 hours away.) and when they do, I think about taking Lynn's Lookout off the VRBO site.

Sincerely,

Maria Lynn

Beautiful view... HOWEVER

  • of 5
The view is simply gorgeous! However, There are a few things you need to know before staying here. You have to pay with a check in the mail.. which is unconventional especially on this website that usually allows online bookings. We booked this cabin for 6 nights, but only stayed 4 because the road is extremely steep and the weather was calling for heavy rain and we were afraid our (non-4 wheel drive) truck would spin out. So a 4x4, in our opinion, is recommended. Also, the pool cues were crooked which made playing a joke. There are 3 TV's in the home, however only the main one (which is a very small older style) in the living room is usable. This is because the upstairs bedroom one has a playstation that doesn't work and no cable. The tv in the spare bedroom has cable, but is black and white. The main issue wasn't until we got home and the owner of the cabin called us and asked about her "personal closet" with an accusatory tone. This closet, which was completely open when we arrived, is labelled as private so we simply closed the door and never opened it again. After 2 phone calls and lots of back pedaling on the owners part, she hung up on my husband. We were just trying to let her know that we had nothing to do with the closet being unlocked. She still insisted that "someone must have learned how to pick a deadbolt". So wonky and weird! Never in my life have I encountered something like this. We did enjoy our stay for the most part, however, we wouldn't stay again just based on our overall experience from booking to returning home.

Can't Wait to Stay Again

Can't Wait to Stay Again

Sorry for the late review! My husband and I stayed at this cabin during our annivesary week vacation in May 2014. We had a wonderful time! The views from the cabin were amazing. We it to be very clean and well maintained. It was very clean, there were lots of nice small appliances (we brought our crockpot for no good reason), plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, pans & paper goods. The hot tub temperature was easily adjustable, and we didn't have any problems with water pressure or temperature inside the cabin.
Only real "complaint" is the lack of an HDTV, but we knew that going in. Adding a flat screen HDTV would make this a real winner. As it stands, we'll probably stay again in 2015!

  • 5 of 5
cabin is in a very quiet place to stay away from the crowds. The view is great,owner is very nice to deal with. The road up to the cabin is fairly steep but we got acquainted with it after a couple of times up & down just keep your speed up while going up seemed to help us.

horrible place and a very rude owner

  • 1 of 5
Yes I stayed back in Feb. The owner didn't want to hear anything bad about the place. It was filthy. If I am going to stay in a place and pay for it, I would think it would have been vacuumed at swept and that someone would wash the dishes. The linens weren't even clean. The couch, we were scared to sit on it b/c of the "white" stains and animal hair on it. The hot tub never worked, she said she was going to send someone out, but they never did. I asked for my money back after the first day, and she wouldn't do it. She wouldn't even respond to my calls or emails. She is a very rude person, once you tell her something negative about the place. Oh yes, she has an excuse for everything. Her excuse to me was she got new "young kids" to clean her place. She didn't believe that it was dirty, and she sent her old cleaning lady, and that lady apologized and gave us her number for the next time we come there to call her and she will find us a better place. Pretty sad actually...

Beautiful Views! So Much Potential

  • 3 of 5
We booked this cabin for our honeymoon. When we got there almost an hour after our allowed check in time, the cleaning lady was still there waiting on a load of towels to dry. She was very nice so we offered to put them away for her. We were excited because the cabin and views were beautiful. But by the end of the first night we had discovered maintenance issues. When we were opening the blinds to enjoy the views from the large windows, 2 of the blinds were broken. Next, we went to enjoy the pool table (one reason we opted for this cabin instead of our second choice) and NONE of the pool sticks were in good enough condition to play (we tried). The table is beautiful but, sadly, we were unable to use it. We considered purchasing a stick but it didn't make sense to, we don't own a pool table at home. Since we couldn't play pool, we decided to relax in the hot tub. However, it wasn't hot, it was luke warm at best and wouldn't heat up until day 5 (the morning we checked out). That morning it had finally reached a temp that would have been nice to relax in. Since the hot tub wasn't warm enough, we decided to attempt the jetted soaker tub which was nice. The sad part of that was that the hot water tank does not seem to be large enough to fill the tub (even after no hot water had been used for over 12 hours while we visited surrounding sites). After the tub filled about half way with the water at a nice temperature, I went to check the level and realized the water was already coming out cold, so we had to turn it off and boil pots of water to carry up stairs (it was our honeymoon and we wanted to relax!)

The pros of this cabin are that the cabin and the views are beautiful, it has a nice wrap around porch with a swing and chairs, it has a large selection of board games and cards, the home was clean and fully stocked for us, the views from the loft bedroom were of beautiful distant mountains and it's located close to the tourist strip in Pigeon Forge. We also saw a bear our first night, which was cool.

When we discussed our experience with the property owner, (who lives in another state), we were told that it was difficult for her to deal with issues regularly due to time constraints & renters. We were also told that her cleaning lady has too many children to find time to make regular repairs. We enjoyed our stay despite the issues, but feel advertised amenities should be functional. If you don't plan on using the amenities, this cabin is nice.

Owner's Response: Hi Jen and Wes,
I'm so sorry that you did not have a great experience at Lynn's Lookout. Kimberly, the one who cleans Lynn's Lookout, is very efficient and does extra things for me such as painting the railing when the painter left them unpainted. I am sure that I did not say the statement as you posted. The cue sticks have been fixed. Thanks for telling me. I'm sure Kim does not have time to check every little detail every time she cleans, since Lynn's Lookout stays booked. She also deals graciously with guests who leave late and arrive early which interferes with her cleaning time and checking things like cue sticks which have been repaired because you were nice enough to let me know. God bless you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lynn's lookout.. The view is simply breathtaking, we didn't want our vacation to end. The unit had everything we needed, my husband and son got several games of pool in, we enjoyed the hot tub and slept very well, and felt refreshed and reluctantly returned to our jobs.. :)
