This house was right in town and the perfect size for a family the size of ours.
The whole lower level smelled musty & had cobwebs. It too hadn’t seen a mop in a long while. There were pieces of 4x4’s holding up the bed downstairs. The bed in the Master was bowed in the middle and hanging about 3” off the floor. You can’t use the jetted tub in the master unless you like lukewarm water.
This cabin is filtered through VRBO as having a swimming pool. We were expecting access to a clubhouse pool in the area, which is the norm. We SPECIFICALLY searched for cabins that had access to an outdoor pool for our SUMMER vacation. Upon arrival, we were extremely disappointed to find out that the “pool” was the indoor Gatlinburg Community Center that you have to pay a fee to use. When we called the owner he said “it doesn’t mention anywhere in your contract that there is a pool”. I reminded him that HE listed his cabin on VRBO as having pool access & I felt it was very deceiving to consider the indoor community center as a “pool”. He is misusing this “filter” on the website. If the Community center were considered “pool access” then every single cabin listing in Gatlinburg could use the “filter” of having a pool!
When I pointed this out to the owner, he suggested a nearby clubhouse pool. I asked him if we needed a code, combo, or bracelet to enter the clubhouse property and he told me “no”. I said “are you sure?” He said, “not unless it has changed in the last yr.” Well, surprise, you DO have to have a membership card & the lady said it had not changed for the past 15yrs! Needless to say we had no pool for our entire trip of which was 90°+
If we knew we would not have a pool, we would’ve had a much wider selection of cabins when we were booking our vacation!
The owner of this cabin doesn’t answer calls or emails for long periods of time. The couple can’t remember what they told you or promised you the last time you talked with them & is always changing prices. It’s bad business. We saw a negative review before we were leaving & questioned the owner about it. He responded he just couldn’t please that lady. Wow, she was right & he was wrong.
The owner’s response to the mold was avoiding talking about it, with no consideration what we had to go through on our own time & refused to refund the large cleaning fee we paid. He ended the phone conversation by hanging up on me. He had offered to give us the last night free & then turned around & charged our credit card for a larger amount of money than he told us in the first place for a per night fee.
The house seemed like it hadn't been inspected in some time. When we arrived we were told the hot water tank was broken and it had leaked all over the floor. It took two days to fix. We had to stay in the house while it was being repaired since we traveled with dogs and the workers would leave the door open as they went in and out. The fenced yard hasn't had any upkeep for sometime and we were unable to use it due to the many spikey pods from trees. The back deck was covered in leaves from the fall. The biggest issue we had was that the owners have people come into the home when you are not there!! We had several phone calls where someone would hang up if we answered. We returned one day to find a guy in the living room! When he heard me open the door, he quickly moved to the window and pretended to measure it for new blinds. Another time we were gone, someone left a bag in the home! We re concerned they would let the dogs out or steal something. If the owner is going to have someone check up on you and go through your things, they need to inform you of this ahead of time so you can decide if you are comfortable with it. We left a day early because we were not.
Our first impression of the cabin is that it was very clean, and decorated beautifully. The beds were very comfortable and the showers in the bathrooms were amazing! We loved the fenced in yard so our dogs could enjoy the vacation, and we were close enough to enjoy everything on the main strip without having to drive anywhere. The cabin stayed nice and cool and everything worked great. This cabin is well maintained and I would highly recommend it to others. We will definitely be back next year!!!
My family of 5 stayed here in the summer 2013 and it was one of our best vacations. We were able to walk to the heart of all Gatlinburg has to offer - activities, restaurants, shops, yet the cabin is secluded and peaceful. The layout is perfect for large families and the kids loved all the games. Our dog loved it too!
Homespun is a wonderful cabin. The four bedrooms accommodated our family very nicely, two on the main level and two on the lower level offered a certain amount of privacy also.
