Spring Break 2012
My family LOVED this cabin. Despite all the great things to do in the area, my kids (son age 13, and daughters ages 11 and 9) were happy to come back each evening, and didn't want to leave in the mornings. They had a blast with the arcade games, and were avid pool players by the time we left.
First, the basics: the cabin was extremely clean, very well maintained, and completely stocked with towels and sheets. It looked exactly like the pictures on the listing, only better. The pictures didn't do justice to the views from the cabin, the area it was in, or how great this cabin was. Kelly was quick to answer our questions and to help us get settled. If you are inclined to cook, the kitchen had everything you would need by way of cookware, utensils, etc. Although I didn't do laundry, the laundry facilities looked great.
This cabin was very comfortable. We all slept very well every night. The beds were great, and the kids were thrilled to have tv's in the bedrooms. We wanted a cabin where we could all spread out to get a good night's sleep. This cabin could easily accommodate 16: with only five, we were completely separated, and had empty beds to spare. It is so solidly built, we couldn't hear anything from floor to floor other than when someone was playing pool.
The view from the back deck was awesome. My husband and I got up early each morning to watch the mist in the mountains, and used binoculars to bird watch from the back deck. It was incredibly peaceful and quiet. Although there are a few cabins scattered around, they are hidden in the trees and it feels like you have the mountains completely to yourself.
The area where this cabin is located is very well planned. There are other cabins, but they are spaced out so that you don't really see them - from the deck, from the windows, or from the front. The cabins you do see as you are driving through the area are all lovely. Although many are rentals, they are extremely well maintained, and there are clearly owner-occupied cabins, as well. This is an area where I would be quite happy to live.
We loved Gatlinburg, and will be renting from you again the next time we're in the area. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for a great spring break!
