Our stay at a slice of heaven

Cabin was very clean and had all the utilities you will need for a weekend long stay.Cabin is somewhat far from all the local attractions but itâ€™s expected if you really want an outdoor cabin experience.Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Roberto. It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed your recent visit, and we hope you will make plans to visit again very soon.
The slice of heaven cabin view of the mountain was awesome during the day to night. You can see the outline both times. The cabin had your necessities and it was clean. It wasn't by the busy streets. Customer service was excellent. The people are much friendlier down there.Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your kind review, Esther! We are excited to hear we exceeded your expectations. We hope you will consider staying with us again during your next visit to The Great Smoky Mountains!
Weekend with old friends
Cabin was very nice, perfect for two couples. We've been to the Smokies and stayed in cabins many times over the years and this had the absolute best view(s) of any of them. Only problem was the dishwasher, sad to say this but we couldn't get it to work. Most are intuitive as far as running it, this one not so much (no start button).Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your great review, James! We certainly appreciate your feedback in regards to the dishwasher, and I will be sure to forward this information to the proper department to be reviewed. We hope you will choose to visit Elk Springs again on your next trip to The Great Smoky Mountains!
Unacceptable Customer Service
The cabin was beautiful and its location was ideal.However, we were cleaning upon arrival. Thankfully there was a Walmart nearby for cleaning supplies. Flooring was poorly kept (laminate flooring near kitchen had holes in it, carpeting was dark / filthy). Glass dining table was full of streaks and fingerprints. Top of refrigerator had a film of dust. Bathrooms were also significantly dusty (between paneling/ corners and window valances). Toilets were stained. Pots and pans were falling apart (no lids,teflon was all scratched, and all handles were loose). Additionally, bedsheet / mattress cover in the loft was grossly stained. The off white curtains on the main level were all stained as well. The spa was not sanitized and merely drained and refilled. We requested bromine tabs to no avail. We personally bought bromine / spa shock. We were easy going and addressed issues independently figuring we were in the woods so what can we expect, but each day it was something new. So we decided to check out a day early. We notified Elks Springs of our early check out and lack of hygienic practices providing pictures and screenshots of text communications as per issues. We kindly requested a refund (approx. $150 for the 1 day [early check out] for the unsanitary inconveniences. They said they couldn't but would review it and get back to me. After not hearing back after a week, I contacted Elks Springs as per the status of the refund and was told it was denied. I thanked them and informed them that I would include our communications and supporting pictures on all reviews (Google, Yelp, TripAdvisor, etc.). I can only hope that they addressed the unacceptable housekeeping issues for the next guests. Honestly, we loved TN and look forward to a do over. We travel often and abroad renting luxury cabins without issues. This was a first for us. Thankfully, there are many rental companies that prioritize best practices; unlike Elks Springs.Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Lourdes. Your review certainly alarms us. After looking into these statements we would like to clarify some of the items in your review. We can understand that you would be disappointed, however, the only items that were brought to our attention were the request for facial tissue and bromine tablets. We try to prepare our guests in advance by sending an itemized list of items that are provided at the cabin. Facial tissues are not listed as we do not provide these in any of the cabins. Your statement regarding the cleanliness of the hot tub are simply not true. We require each of the cleaners to provide a time and date stamped photo of the sanitized hot tub. This photo must include the required chemicals prior to each guest's arrival. We do have photos showing shock and bromine were added prior to your arrival. Your refund request was denied, as we were not given the opportunity to see or address any of the issues. We provide 24/7 guest assistance to ensure any issue that arises can be handled quickly. It is our policy, as outlined in our guest agreement, to rectify any issues rather than refunding. We can assure you that each of the items mentioned will be assessed. We sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding and hope you were able to enjoy your time spent in our area in light of these issues.

This was first time renting a cabin. The experience was great. We were there for motorcycle rides. That being said. The location of our cabin was a little to far up the mountain. The cabin was great but the driveway was a little to steep. We did have a great week though.Would recommend to others? Yes
