Beyond our expectations
Submitted: June 18, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
The title says it all - when we arrived, we ran from room to room like excited kids, checking out the views and the rooms until we stood on the balcony speechless and in awe.
The main bedroom shower was so relaxing (ten shower heads, really!), and the view from the bed was such a pleasure to wake up to. I did yoga in the mornings on the balcony, the birds my soundtrack to relaxation.
Gatlinburg is just a 15 minute drive, so it was nice to be so close to shops and restaurants, yet so secluded from the sound of the highway. The fire pit was such a welcome end to the day.
There were a couple of very minor issues, but nothing that we couldn't work around. Several pots and pans, glasses, ect were put away dirty, so we wound up washing dishes a few times before we cooked. Also, I would recommend planning on printing out directions, information, to all of the things you have planned to do while here before your stay, as the router is terribly outdated, and essentially a dial up connection, which kept dropping. Only a couple of us were able to get reception, and the cabin phones were not working, so communication with "the outside world" was difficult - don't plan on spending all of your time working, or uploading photos to FaceBook. There was a dead mouse in one of the closets (blech!). I let the girl at the office know all of this, and she seemed pretty unconcerned and apathetic, unfortunately.
All in all, it was an incredible place to spend a few days/nights, and anyone who has the chance to come out will be exceedingly pleased.
Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed the home, fire pit and views. I am disappointed to hear you had issues with some pots and pans and the desk person was unconcerned with what you found. Since we are long distance owners, we rely on the property management company to take care of our property and attend to our guests. I will let them know we, and our guests, expect more from their service! We hope you will come and stay with us again!!
