Short getaway in "A Desire Fulfilled"
My wife and I stayed in A Desire Fulfilled for two nights, and it wasn't long enough! We loved the semi-secluded location, and the cabin was wonderful. There were a couple very minor issues (icemaker not working and some brush growing up over the back deck) but it did not bother us during our stay. We loved the rainfall shower! We have stayed at Elk Springs Resort twice before and will plan on returning the next time we can get away!Would recommend to others? Yes

Gatlinburg Family Vaca
This is an absolutely beautiful home!! The SHOWER...lets talk about that shower WOW oh WOW. The cabin had everything we needed for a nice, quiet, relaxing stay. We returned home completely rejuvenated and ready to concur the world once more. The only downfall is the view. I knew there would not be a mountain view and I was ok with that but, literally when you walk out on the back deck you are greeted by a wall of trees......maybe a little bit of trimming would help....Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your fantastic review, Casey! It is a pleasure to hear you enjoyed your recent cabin stay. A Desire Fulfilled is certainly a great cabin to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We appreciate your feedback regarding the trees. I have reported this to the maintenance department for review. We hope you will choose to visit us again very soon. Please keep in mind, as repeat visitors you will enjoy a special discount returning.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Fiona. We are happy you enjoyed your stay, however, disheartened to hear you experienced this issue. Each of our cabins are professionally treated by our local pest control company. Your comfort is our primary goal. Even with the best efforts, insects can sneak in. With most of our cabins being in wooded areas these are usually wood roaches, not cockroaches. We will share your feedback with our technician to ensure the cabin is pest-free. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience experienced and hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.
Not a luxury cabin as advertised!
The cabin was advertised as sleeping 8. We had a family of 7 and it was extremely tight. The kitchen held 7 people at the table. Other than that there was NO where for us to sit.The upstairs had one couch that held 3 people. The downstairs had a love seat and wooden rocker-seating. The deck had 4 wooden rocking chairs and one was broken.There was no where for our family to sit and be together...which was the purpose of our family vacation! Sleeping 7 people was also a challenge. We had 3 teenagers in the bunk bed room. We had 2 adult males sleeping on the sleeper sofa --they did NOT sleep well at all. The bed was uncomfortable and was extremely noisy. Every time they moved, the noise was so loud in the master bedroom below, that we did not sleep either! It sounded like someone was breaking in or scraping the floor. Horrible noises! Curb appeal was poor- the cabin was located in a stoned cul-de-sac. Our cabin had weeds growing in the eaves near the roofline. The driveway had large ruts that made our car bottom out even when driving extremely slow. Luxury cabin--NOT! The carpet in the master bedroom was all ripped and torn. The bedspread in the master bedroom was ripped. There was nowhere to set our luggage/suitcases. (Unless we piled them up in closet) The teeny tiny dresser did not hold much! In addition to the lack of storage for our clothes, there was no where to place our toiletries! So, they sat on the floor in bags. The blankets in the bunk bed room and ones for the pull out couch were disgusting, stained and nasty.We found a bug (cockroach) in our bed on the 2nd night! You don’t sleep well knowing that there are bugs in your bed. The last night we were there was a snake, YES!, a snake was slithering around on the bathroom floorContacted Elk Springs and they were like "sorry-nothing we can do after your stay. You should have called during your visit!WILL NWould recommend to others? No
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Stacey. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed in these aspects of your stay. We can understand your frustration, however, we would like to clarify a few items in your review. There is seating for 4 at the kitchen table, an additional 3 at the breakfast bar, and not to mention an additional 3 people on the sofa merely steps away from the table. If you go a few more steps then there is seating for 1 more person, which totals seating for 11 in this open area. We are not sure why you would think there would be no where for you to sit together. The layout and description of the bedrooms and sleeper sofa are listed on our website. This cabin is exactly as described. We can assure you the carpeting in the bedroom is not all ripped and torn, but rather there is a run in the carpet. We are aware of this and will be replacing the carpeting with hard wood flooring. Our cabins are professionally treated by our local pest control company. We can also assure you, there was not a cockroach in your bed. We sent our technician out and after a thorough search he was unable to find any roaches. The cabin has been treated as a precaution, as we care about the comfort of our guests. We were unaware of the snake. This is not something common, but possible with people coming in and out of the cabin often. While we understand your frustration, as outlined in our Guest Agreement, we are fully staffed and willing to take care of any issues that may arise during your stay. As our representative explained, we do not refund for issues that we were not given the opportunity to see or address. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you experienced and hope you were able to enjoy your time spent in our area.
Nice. But no view
Cabin was nice. But had no view. We enjoyed our stay. But we were disappointed with the outside of the cabin. Looked nothin like the picture on the web site. Cabin needed to be bug sprayed. Several centipedes, over 20 crawling on the floors and one on the pillow. Ice maker didnâ€™t work. Queen comforter was on a King size bed and the bed was not comfortable. Light was burned out in the shower and over the bathroom sink.Would recommend to others? No
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Doug. We truly value your feedback as it helps us to improve.

We are always happy to send out one of our experienced technicians to correct any issue that arises. We can assure you, our guests are our number one priority. We certainly understand that these items were an inconvenience and sincerely apologize. We hope you will consider staying with us again during your next visit to Gatlinburg.
Beautiful Wall of Windows and Nature
We had an amazing trip. The house was in a great location. Close to everything but out of the busy strip. Wall of windows is beautiful. The hot tub and walk in shower (with great water pressure!) were bonuses. The house fit our family of 4 just right. While there was clearly nothing "wrong" with the house we did see a few areas that were beginning to look worn. The master could use some fresh bedding (it had holes) and some of the towels were stained. It would have been helpful to have a few updated kitchen pans as well. The two we mainly used were warped or food stuck to them (even with oil) and they really needed a good scrub. We did dishes each night which meant we had enough for the following day. If we hadn't we would have run out of dishes. A second set of dishtowels and scrubber brush would have been helpful too for our 6 night stay. The lower level carpet is snagging with some runs throughout. Those items aside, the house was very comfortable and nice to come back to each day. We would consider rebooking when we return to the area. Thank you for having us!!Would recommend to others? Yes

Incredible Cabin and Experience!
Our experience at A Desire Fulfilled cabin was amazing. It was just my wife and I, but we very easily couldâ€™ve had 2-4 more people there without any problem at all. The pool table and foosball table were fun and we used them both nights of or stay. Same for the outdoor hot tub. You could tell it was nice a clean and had a privacy fence surrounding it. The 18ft rainfall shower was sooooo nice. We definitely need one of those in our next house lol. The cabin also had a small grill, full kitchen, and most anything you could need. Everything you should need is there! The cabin is about 20 minutes or so from Gatlinburg and Pigeon forge, which was perfect. We wish we couldâ€™ve stayed longer and will definitely be back soon!Would recommend to others? Yes

A Desire Fulfilled
I was very impressed with the property management such as receiving texts about traffic, directions, check in, etc. The cabin was listed as sleeping 8; however, the sleeper sofa springs literally were protruding from the bed which made it uncomfortable leaving 2 guests sleeping on the living room floor. One of the rocking chairs outside was broken when we got there and didn't realize until we sat in it, and when covering up with a blanket which was folded in the closet my aunt noticed small black hairs. Otherwise our stay was enjoyed.Would recommend to others? Yes

A Desire partially fulfilled
The cabin was nice. There were dead bugs on the windowsill. Coffee filters were not provided and there were no sponges. Both of these are inexpensive items that should be provided. Other than that the cabin was niceWould recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your honest review, Nell. We certainly appreciate your feedback as it helps to ensure we are constantly improving. In the mountain area, especially in the spring and summer time, it is almost impossible to completely eradicate insects. We do have our cabins treated monthly and our housekeepers make an attempt to sweep away any dead bugs during each cleaning, but we certainly apologize for any that were left behind. I have forwarded your suggestion to provide filters and sponges to our housekeeping department for review. In an attempt to avoid confusion, we do send out an email prior to arrival noting to our guests what is provided in their cabin and what is not. We are very sorry if you assumed these items were provided. We are delighted that you enjoyed the cabin and we do hope you will allow us another opportunity to show you a true 5-star experience.
