Sweet stay

This is our second stay at Smoky Mountain’s cabins. Since it is winter, view was not as great as our first experience. It was cold and cabin was not evenly heated. While temperature on the upper level very warm, room at the first level was kindda cold. Pool table was little disappointing, it was very tilted and balls go to holes without you touching them. It would not be a big problem if the weather could allow us to be on the porch or outside but we stayed most of the time at the cabin so a better functioning game room would have been great. One of the bathroom sink was clogged but maintenance came in couple hours and fixed it. Customer service was perfect. They called us couple times before we checed in and called during our stay to ask if we need anything. Communicating with them was very convenient. I understand that anything can happen, be missing or be broken but being able talk to someone and get a prompt response is very important to us and they’ve done great on that! WiFi, kitchenware and pretty much what you could think of was in the kitchen which was perfect. There were TVs in every room and they were working. A few DVDs for kids could be nice addition. Overall we liked our stay.

Ok but not great

First I would like to give the positives. The cabin was clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. After that it goes down hill for us. I found the cabin on a search site under the search tag of secluded. It is NOT secluded or close to it. There are cabins out every window so close it’s not comfortable to leave them open. We did not use the jacuzzi because there was a cabin right there. Main floor bathtub keep window closed cabin right there. That was my first disappointment. Second in the winter at least it’s very hard to regulate the temperature in the house. Don’t plan to use the bottom floor it’s freezing while the top is hot. That just was not comfortable. The bottom floor is a futon that will hold one. We did not need it to hold two but just in case anyone was counting on it holding two they better sleep real close. The counter tops are tile I think is Just unsanitary. You just can’t clean tile grout and keep it from holding germs. This was our first family vacation ever and the only Christmas present we gave our family so we had hoped for a better experience. We left a day early as we just did not see the point in staying. Not that I expected anything from Elk Springs but I did email them about the seclusion and they promptly told me they were sorry I chose the wrong cabin. I don’t think seclusion is a big thing to a lot of people reading the other reviews no one really mentions it but for us we don’t live in the city now so I don’t want to go on vacation and hold hands with my neighbor.

We appreciate your honest feedback, as it helps to ensure we are constantly improving. We are truly sorry that the lack of privacy created an issue for you and your family. We do offer several luxury cabins that are in a more private setting and I'm sure one of our experienced Sales Representatives will be happy to assist you with finding the perfect cabin for you and your family. I have passed your concerns regarding the counter tops along to the proper department and again we appreciate you noting this for us. Please bear in mind that these homes are meant to be rented not lived in and often times that means there is a difference in the way they are set up. We do offer 24/7 staff assistance and have many experienced maintenance technicians available to assist you with anything that is not up to par. We typically suggest closing off a few upstairs vents and this will push a lot of the heat to the lower level thus regulating the temperature downstairs. We are truly sorry that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Please know that it was not our intention to disappoint you. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

Peace and quiet

We enjoyed yet another year with Elksprings. As always, this cabin did not disappoint. It was the perfect size for our family and the peace and quiet was so relaxing. All we could hear was the sounds of leaves falling. Can't wait to go back next year.

Wooded retreat

Cabin was very nice kitchen and living room were a little small but worked out okay. The cabin was in a wooded location near other cabins but the wooded location maintained your privacy.

Secret hideaway trio

Enjoyed it. It was challenging to navigate in and out of the property but once there it was very nice. The pool table is tiny and hard to play in that small space. The lower level tv wasn’t HD. Property was very clean and kitchen had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and the cabin was quiet.

Fabulous

We met my in-laws for a four night stay at A Secret Hideaway. It was an amazing cabin. We fell in love with it and could have stayed much longer. It was absolutely beautiful. We have stayed with several companies over the years and we've liked all of them, but this one was by far the cleanest we have ever stayed in. The furniture was comfortable, the bedrooms each had their own en suite full baths, with a third down stairs with a futon sleeper. We even got to see a bear walk across in front of our cabin eating acorns from the tree. Will definitely stay with Elk Springs Resort again. Thank you!!
