I had spoken with a few other rental places before choosing you guys. I wanted to tell you that there was another availability, but your friendliness and cooperation is what decided for me. Also, thank you for being so reasonable with the cabin rental as well as the unfortunate doggy damage. I really enjoyed my trip and when I come back, you guys will definitely be the first I will contact in regards to cabin rentals. Thank you again!
This was a wonderful getaway cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed its distance from Gatlinburg and the other major cities. It was a true secluded experience. We bought our two dogs who absolutely had a blast, especially when it came to playing in the creek that runs alongside the cabin. The interior was perfect. It is warm and inviting. We enjoyed a fire on a few cold nights, and enjoyed sitting out on the porch during the warm days. We brought in the new year during our stay and we're tickled to use the 2000 millennium glasses that were available :) My husband must have said that he loved the cabin at least 10 times. We will definitely be back to the Lindsey Mill.
Came with my husband, son and two dogs for a 4 day vacation to relax after the hustle and bustle of the Christmas holiday. We loved the cabin, it was so rustic and charming. It was also beautifully decorated for Christmas, and we enjoyed relaxing in front of the crackling fire. The cabin is very close to the road, and we didn't have to drive up a steep drive to get to it, something that could be important if there's a chance of snow in the mountains.
Located within an easy drive to Gatlinburg if you don't want to be in the thick of all the people. The cabin is supplied with everything you would need to feel like you are at home. Having it dog friendly made it even better!
We had a wonderful stay at The Lindsey Mill! The property really is spectacular! Not for those who want a "cookie-cutter" cabin, but perfect for those looking for something with a little character! Private and cozy, but a quick trip in to Gatlinburg. We are already talking about renting it for a longer stay next year!
My husband and I stayed here October 7-13. The advertisement stated the cabin would be private. While it was much more secluded than some cabins in this area, I wouldn't call it private. It was right next to a road. Though it didn't have much traffic on it, there was traffic. There are a couple cabins right next to it. You can see them and they can see you. The golf course is catty corner. If you are sitting in the living room chair with the door open you can hear the men on the golf course talking and taunting each other (as well as see them). So if you are looking for total seclusion you may want to find something else.
One of the main reasons we chose this cabin was because of the trout stream and the trout pond (the ad says you can catch trout in the stream and if not try the trout pond). We wanted to get away and relax and fish. Imagine our surprise when there were no trout in the stream. No big deal, we figured we'd just go out to the stocked trout pond. We caught a few brim but nothing else. So we called and asked out of curiosity. We were told they had quit stocking the pond and hadn't stocked it in a year or so. That is not a stocked pond anymore. She seemed highly surprised there wasn't trout in the stream and she told us they stocked the stream (downstream) and the trout should travel up to the cabin. No. There are a few rather large "waterfall" areas they would have to travel up to get to the cabin and that just isn't how trout work. So my husband was very disappointed about that (remember, this was one of the main reasons we chose this place).
The bed is a rock. We got curious and found the tag. It is 11 years old (closer to 12). On other reviews we saw (after we stayed) she said she couldn't please everyone, and while I understand that, that bed is horrid. People have different likes and dislikes when it comes to beds, and while it is expensive a sleep number bed just may be the answer to that. Then everyone can choose how they want their bed.
My biggest complaint was fleas. We did bring our dog and we are very diligent about her flea care. She has never had them. She did give us our pet deposit back due to them and we appreciate that, but if the area hasn't been sprayed just be aware of it.
The cabin itself is adorable and cozy. The fireplace is beautiful and sitting there listening to the fire crackle was great. The weather was great and my dog enjoyed romping around the yard (some neighbors let theirs run free. Be aware!)
We loved our stay at the Lindsey Mill. It was a fascinating house and the rusty mill was also very interesting. The location was great for us, because we came to hike in Great Smoky Mtn. National Park. There are only two things i would mention:
1) We would have really liked to know some history of the cabin and mill. We could see that the cabin had been moved -- there were numbered tags on the logs (outside) on the corners. Would also have enjoyed some history of the mill and the standing stone chimney. This would add a great deal to enjoyment of this very special place.
2) The bathroom shower was slippery and dangerous because it lacked a mat and grab bars. We brought in the door mat from the upstairs porch after my husband slipped and almost fell in the shower.
One of the burners on the electric stove didn't work, but that wasn't a problem.
Overall we loved it and hope to return.
Located 15 minutes to downtown, 5 miles to the arts and crafts community and 4 miles to the Greenbrier entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
