This is a wonderful cabin in a beautiful & convenient location. We would definitely consider staying here again. A few areas could be easily improved to make this a 5-star cabin!
Pros...THE VIEW is beautiful, the furniture & decor is updated, close to all the attractions but yet far enough away to enjoy the peace & quiet. Kitchen is well stocked. Furniture is comfortable, (beds are firm but not painfully hard).
Cons...The cabin could use a really good deep cleaning (not just a quick sweep in between renters). While the unit was ‘clean’ upon arrival, there were still cobwebs in the corners and on some light fixtures. There was obvious dust build up under the furniture. There was a few dead bugs left behind that a previous renter had smooshed against the wall but had never been cleaned up. (Note, we never saw any live bugs inside during our stay). The master bathroom is actually a Jack & Jill bathroom with the queen bedroom, also it has no shower. The only shower is in the hall bathroom upstairs. The water pressure is awful! There’s no point in attempting to use the jet tub because it will literally take an hour to fill up. The pillows could be replaced. They are thin and discolored (the random yellow stains, & one actually had dried blood on it...yuck!...I suggest bringing your own). The washing machine is VERY loud and shakes terribly so maybe start laundry on your way out the door. Pack some kitchen towels because we were only provided two. The porch provides a beautiful view, however in the evenings in the Summer, the porch is too hot to enjoy. There is an awning, however it was locked. It would be awesome if the renters were able to have access to enjoy the evenings and sunsets.
With all this being said, it’s still a very nice cabin. The housekeepers should definitely be informed of the cleaning concerns & the owners should consider purchasing new pillows. Otherwise, the other ‘cons’ I listed, shouldn’t be a deal breaker. If you’re considering this unit, go for it!

Extraordinary mountain view. House was a good fit for our family of 5 - 2 parents and 3 teens. Pool table, hot tub, and all of the board games and puzzles were well appreciated. A couple of bits of advice for future guests - it's a little ways from the "action" of downtown Gatlinburg (15 minute drive) and 30-60 minutes to most of the hiking trails, which can add up if you're trying to go back and forth a lot. Also the house has all the basics - dishes, towels, linens, etc. - but remember to pack trash bags, foil / plastic wrap, and pens and paper. Also the WiFi and cell service are both very spotty, so don't count on a lot of Internet access! ... all said, a great place for a vacation and family time.
This cabin is the best so far that I have stayed in. I will definitely be coming back
We had a wonderful time in this cabin. It was PERFECT for a family of 4. Waking up to the view every morning was breathtaking.
There were ladybugs everywhere, which I didn’t mind cause they are a sign of good luck.
It’s a close drive to downtown Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains National Park, which is GORGEOUS.
This house is absolutely stunning in my eyes. The garden tub took a while to fill up because the water pressure wasn’t that strong BUT the water stayed hot and the tub was so nice to relax in. The hot tub is in a perfect location to view the mountains and feel a bit of privacy while relaxing in it. My teenage boys loved the pool table and the house as a whole. My husband and I just enjoyed the family time and the amazing scenery, I can’t express enough how beautiful it was being there.
The kitchen had all the appliances needed to make a nice meal, there’s a grocery store near by to stock your kitchen. I did have an issue using the Kerig that was there but they took it to fix of replace, but we got coffee and filters to use the standard coffee maker for the remainder of our stay, I was happy they had both.
All in all it was perfect staying in this home. 100% would recommend.
