The Perfect Rental for Quality Time

  • 5 of 5

Our group has made this our annual destination since 2011 because it feels like home and has beds for all. We can socialize by the fire, in the game room, living room, kitchen, or on the balcony. We arrive with what we need and don't leave for the whole weekend. It's the perfect rental for quality time.

Beautiful home. Quiet setting. Nice size private rooms for individual families. Beautiful view. Furniture and beds are comfortable. The 2 downstairs bunk rooms were perfect for the grandchildren. We enjoyed our stay.

Floors are warped, particularly in the kitchen. We had to nail down some nails on the stairs. Railing on deck is badly rotting. It began to rain on the morning of our departure and the roof began to leak into the deck side of the master bedroom on the main floor.

The wifi and internet were not sufficient. Sometimes neither worked at all, which is not acceptable for our professional families. Had to sometimes go to town to get better access.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the property was very nice.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about these issues. We pride ourselves on offering great customer service and would have done our best to address these things during the guest stay had they let us know about these issues before they checked out. There is a log railing post located in the owner’s side storage area that needs to be replaced. This is an area only used by the owner and our handyman to store outside equipment like a wheel barrel. This is not an area guests have access to but it’s visible when guests take out the trash. It’s scheduled for repair in between guest stays.

Perfect Cabin Weekend

  • 5 of 5

17 of my friends and I stayed at Cherokee lodge in early January. The cabin stood up to all of my expectations for a weekend in the mountains. The cabin was clean and welcoming with an very warm/cozy cabin feel. Val and Renee were very organized with entry and exit instructions and even offered great advice regarding restaurants and grocery stores in the area. We especially loved using the hot tub and the outdoor fire pit. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone with a large group.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 17 people stay in this cabin and everyone loved it, especially the gorgeous view! There was more than enough room for everyone and cabin is just like shown in the pictures. Everything you need is available in the cabin with lots of fun things to do. Fairly close to Gatlinburg and pigeon forge. The big windows in the living room could use a wash but overall cabin was clean and very convenient. Will definitely come back to this one!

My family and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving holiday at this amazing property. It comfortably accommodated all 16 of us and provided everything we wanted and needed. From the peacefulness to the breathtaking views, it was awesome! Val and Renee were equally great, always responding to emails/requests in an ultra-fast timeframe. We'll definitely be back!
