Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent three days at Emotional Rescue with our best friends,(4 couples) everyone had a great time...It was so relaxing & the guys enjoyed watching the Vols play Alabama with they shot pool. It was big enough so the men folk could do their thing downstairs while us women watched movies or just sat on the deck upstairs. We usually take a show or two in Pigeon Forge, but this time we just relaxed. This is our second time with Jackson Mountain Homes and we have been really impressed with how nice and how well kept everything is. We will be back.

It was the perfect place to get away and relax with the entire family. Everything that we needed was provided and much more. The kids loved the game room and the adults appreciated the private bedrooms with bath. I loved sitting on the deck and watching the sun set and the solitude of the early mornings. It was my Emotional Rescue.

Wonderful home with amazing reviews.

We are a family of 8 and there was plenty of room for all of us. Four king size beds- everyone had their own bathroom, plenty of dish wares. Clean and nicely decorated. We had a wonderful time!

Loved it

Stayed at emotional rescue for 4 nights with 4 couples. We had a great time. The cabin was perfect. We each had a private bedroom and our own bathrooms that helped when getting ready to go out. The view was breathtaking.

We were scammed. The property is very nice and clean. Black bear falls is a lovely resort as well.

The day we arrived we were happy with how the house looked and it was clean. We tried to turn on the main tv. It would not come on and gave an error message the there was some type of "external" problem. I emailed John, the owner, and he said he would have someone there the next day to fix it.

The first repairman was unable to fix it. He commented that it has frequent problems and is too complicated for a rental. The second repairman showed up later, while we were gone, and got it to work reasonably well. It still gave the error message on occasion but eventually came on. We really weren't that worried about the tv as we weren't in the smokies to watch tv.

At the end of our stay we followed all the guidelines for closing up the house and left it in perfect condition/exactly as when we arrived.

The owner then withheld the cost of repairing his tv (which didn't work when we arrived) out of the additional damage deposit he requires (on top of the damage insurance that is required at the time of reservation)!!!

I tried several times to call him and no answer. I emailed and texted. He then would only text me and then stopped that as well.

In his text he accused us of getting into two locked owners closets and said "system parts were moved".

When we arrived the locked closet in the kitchen was wide open. I glanced in and it was full of electrical stuff so just closed it and never opened it again. I don't even know where a second owners closet was...never saw one. And if it was locked, how would we have even gotten in it? Or why would we even want to??

We have rented through vrbo for over 10 years all over the world and never had any problem. Black Bear Falls is a beautiful resort and there are plenty of beautiful properties available for rent. I had a few others picked out that were equally as nice and should have gone with one of those. My recommendation...don't rent from this guy unless you want to be lied about and taken advantage of.

Owner's Response: We inspect are house thoroughly after our guests leave and before our guests check in. This includes operational check of all electronic systems, as we have had problems in past with guests removing television and cable lines to attach their own equipment. Needless to say all our big screens worked, as well as built in surround sound. Seeing as how this renter never bothered to tell me system did not work until late the day after she arrived seems hard to believe it didn't work from start. The first service man was a community service worker able to re-boot cable, the second service man was the man who installed system and he reported wires were hanging out and several wires had been moved, including rv receivers in the locked owners closet. I only charged what he charged me. This is after the police were called because guest was unable to put alarm code into alarm because she told me she was technologically impaired and was unable to retrieve email message with code . I not saying she is lying but I do know that my housekeeper, and my service person are not. John

Great Cabin for family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

Emotional Rescue was a beautiful cabin for our family vacation. Equipped with everything needed , 4 really comfortable king beds! Enjoyed the play room with pool table and arcade games! Plenty of rocking chairs on the amazing deck to enjoy the views. Secluded, but close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The only drawback was we only had one washcloth per person (there were 7 of us) for 4 nights, we would definitely book this cabin again!
