Overall the house was spacious enough for our family which consisted of 9 adults, however the amenities described are not up to par. The living room furniture is uncomfortable and in poor condition. Most TVs do not have remotes and the owner offers "basic" Direct TV channels only, which does not include ESPN. The video game DOES NOT WORK. The sofa beds are extremely uncomfortable and adequate blankets were not provided. Lady bugs are a huge problem in the entire house especially at the dinner table as they would swarm around the light over the table and drop off into our food. We have had better experience in the past when renting directly from owners, as the property managers were less than accommodating.
The cabin is easy to get to and in a great location with quick access to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, a park entrance, Townsend, and Cades Cove, and it has great views. You cannot see another cabin or residence , and even at night, there are few lights visible.
While it is private, it is far from tranquil. This cabin overlooks a steep and curvy section of Highway 321, and the noise from traffic is quite loud and almost non-stop. It is noticeable inside the cabin even with the tv on. Inside the cabin is spacious and inviting. We only had five people in our group, but the cabin could have easily handled twice that many. Some of the furnishings are a little outdated but comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with enough items to cook most meals.
The pool table was well worn, the hot tub sprung a massive leak the day before we left, and the tint was peeling from the great room windows, but otherwise, the cabin provided what it claimed. This was our first trip to the Smoky Mountains and renting a cabin, so I do not have much to compare it to. So while it was a nice cabin, I could only recommend it to someone who didn't plan on a peaceful nap on the deck due to the traffic noise.
