Great Cabin

Our family spent 7 nights at the Cajun Hideaway and had a wonderful time. The cabin had the best ameneties of any cabin we've stayed at, along with a perfect location. The view from the upper deck was beautiful. The only thing we noticed was that the cabin needed to be dusted. Dust on fixtures and ceiling fans was noticable. We will definately stay at the "Cajun Hideaway again.

Great, but it could be bettrer

Overall we had a great experience, however the cleaning could be better, the bathrooms were well cleaned (which is the most important), but there were a lot dirty spots like windows (accumulating bugs) and dust in many places.

Host Response (January 10, 2020):

Pretty secluded and great view - just what we had asked for

We had a wonderful time staying in Cajun Hideaway. This was our second time staying with Elk Springs. This cabin is farther out from town, but feels much more secluded than being right on the resort, and the views were amazing even on the dreariest of days - one day we were able to watch the snow accumulating on the mountaintops across the way. There are still a couple of cabins in site, but situated so you don't feel like you are on top of one another. I would agree with previous reviews; if you have never been there, it is definitely best to arrive in the daylight. The surround sound system was a nice touch. The only two negatives were that the hot tub is down on the lower floor and on the opposite end of the deck from the door (only a slight inconvenience making that walk (run) when it was 20 degrees outside). We wished there was a door closer to the grill. That was just being picky though and it was colder when we stayed. Probably wouldn't have thought much about it if we had stayed in the warmer months. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

Unprofessional handling of issues

The cabin was great until we had issues with a rodent in the vent right above the master bedroom. Upon telling customer service of the issue, we agreed that an exterminator would not be sent out so our stay would not be impeded. For some reason, the exterminator was still sent out during our stay and blamed the company for giving the wrong service date. He came into our cabin to apply his treatment which was awkward and ruined our comfort in the cabin. That night the rodent made even more noise than before and ruined our sleep. The customer service reps kept saying I’d hear from management. Never did. I gave them plenty of time to respond due to craziness of Covid-19 but they refuse to acknowledge the issue entirely. After several attempts to allow management to address the issue, they never did. No compensation, no sincere apology, and no effective attention to issues their customers have. It is a shame that such a nice cabin is run by such management.

Host Response (March 25, 2020):

Thank you, Huner, for sharing your experience with us. It is regrettable to know of your disappointment with our customer service. We sincerely apologize for any issue during your stay. We certainly do not want to make you feel unforcomfortable or awkward while you are staying with us. You did report the issue the day before your departure. We do understand you did not want anyone out, however if we are not allowed to rememedy the problem, we cannot issue compensation for it. Since we were only aware of it shortly before you were leaving we could not comfirm if we resolved it. Again, we sincerely apologize and hope you enjoyed your stay in our area.

Guests Beware

This rental was somewhat disappointing. The property was located in a very steep area with one-way roads. GPS even had a hard time locating the property. For this reason, we did not venture out often. The overall condition of the rental was OK but there were dead ladybugs all over the property and it was very dusty. The pool table was also dusty and full of dead bugs. There was a notice on the refrigerator that advised of the ladybug infestation but it would have been nice if this was in the description of the property when I was selecting a rental. I have severe asthma and we had to cut our trip short due to the condition of the property. Also, the bedrooms are located on the very bottom floor of the rental and you have to walk up and down 2 sets of stairs to get to the kitchen and main family room. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this property.

Host Response (January 05, 2021):

It is regrettable that your recent stay was not as exquisite as most stays at Cajun Hideaway. In The Smokies, we do have seasons when lady bugs are released from the national park area. This can cause an abundance of them to gather but I can assure you this is only temporary. We do have our cabins treated for these pests as well which means that often times if you do see them, they are dead. We are sorry if they caused an inconvenience during your stay. In regards to directions and location. Many of our cabins are located in the mountain area. In order to avoid confusion, we do send out emails with the address and some turn by turn driving directions. These can be helpful in the mountains as GPS is not always as reliable. We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay and share your feedback with us.

It was a wonderful relaxing experience. Loved the view. We did want to be secluded, but it was a little far from pigeon forge. Overall it was a great vacation.

Cajun hideaway autumn 2018

Cabin was very clean and in excellent condition. Loved the large kitchen. The view of the mountains was great, but there is road noise while on the deck. Other cabins are close by. We enjoyed the hot tub, but wished the jets had been stronger. Had fun shooting pool while watching the game. Recommended.

Host Response (November 01, 2018):

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Daryle. We are happy you enjoyed your overall stay with us. The area this cabin is located in is a secondary route coming into town. We are getting more visitors than usual, as this is our busiest month due to the exceptional fall colors so many people are coming to enjoy. This does create more traffic and unfortunately this can be heard in areas that you usually would only hear the peaceful sounds of nature. It is not advertised as being secluded, there are quite a few cabins located throughout this area. Please contact us when you are ready to start planning your next get-away. We have a great selection of cabins that may be in a more ideal location for your next visit. One of our experienced Sales Representatives will be happy to assist you in finding a cabin that will not only meet, but exceed, your expectations. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.
