The outdoor areas of this place are worth it by themselves. A large porch full of rocking chairs overlooking the creek. A totally screened in dining area on a different deck. A full fireplace with grill and table and chairs. And a hot tub area. All covered, all outdoors, and all connected. The deck space alone is the size of some cabins in the area. Even though we spent most of our time outside, the inside was great, too. Very convenient that all the bedrooms have their own bathrooms, and all have large beds. We had some kids their and the bedrooms are near soundproof. That was shocking compared to many of the cabins we've stayed in with paper thin walls. Note: The TV in the main room and in the billiards room have been updated. We were a little concerned with the photos in the listing that they would still be 30 year old tube TVs, but they are modern flat panels. One downside: They mention only having a starter supply of things like garbage bags and toilet paper. In our case, that start supply meant a single garbage bag in the kitchen. It wasn't worth calling the management but it seems like such a simple thing that they could do. Why provide such a great place and then skimp out on something so cheap as garbage bags?Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your fantastic 5-star review, Brian! It is delightful to hear that everyone had such a fantastic time at Creeksong. You definitely chose a great cabin to relax and take in the beautiful mountain scenery. While we do provide a few necessities in a starter pack upon your arrival, our cabin stays are not like a hotel stay like you may have assumed. We send several emails prior to your stay advising you what is provided in the cabins. We are very sorry if this put a damper on your visit but we hope you will choose to visit us again in the future. We hope to see you soon!
A weekend to remember!
The check in was so easy!! Any questions I had about directions- I just sent a text- -and they answered me right back. We had lots of parking- enough for 3 cars. I loved how they had a ramp going into the house on the side. My mom had trouble with stairs- so this helped her easily get into house. The bedrooms were spaced out- everybody had their own space! The mattresses were a little hard in 3 of the bedrooms- but not enough to keep you from sleeping! The kitchen had everything we could ever need! Each bedroom had a private bathroom! " We used the outdoor gas grill one night. The hot tub was awesome!!! The fire pit by the screened in porch was nice also- they loved making s'mores! We loved the back porch- just spray for bugs!! We could rock and hear the awesome creek- that ran behind the cabin! Wonderful toys for the children! I would highly recommend this cabin! I'm hoping to visit again next year! Even though their was a road nearby- the trees gave you so much privacy!Would recommend to others? Yes

Our goal is to make your vacation planning easy and your time here memorable. It sounds like we succeeded!

Best Cabin for a family retreat!!!
We were in search of an adventurous vacation for an active family! This cabin was close to many trails in the Smoky Mountains including a zip line, mountain bike outfit within walking distance. The cabin was perfect! We grilled out and played billiards in the evenings. The cabin was well equipped for every age. There were eight of us. (One to 58yrs. old) The toy room was fabulous for the little ones, the many sq. ft. of deck space allowed for quiet time. Every bedroom was furnished with a king sized bed! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, baskets and cooking pans to create a perfect homey dinner reunion. The creek was above all so peaceful and provided continuous natural beauty with a view from the deck. The communication from the agency was more than expected. From booking, checking in, to leaving the cabin, Elksprings made our vacation easy. Thank so much to the owner for sharing your lovely home. We said every, this was the perfect cabin for us!Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful experience with us, Linda! We are delighted to hear we exceeded your expectations. It sounds like you chose the perfect cabin to enjoy a memorable get-away! We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.
Best family vacation ever!
This was the first time we have been able to vacation with our 3 kids since they have all gotten married. The cabin was perfect space-wise because everyone had their own room/bathroom ad well as good common space. The decks across the back of the house and near the creek were amazing. The only unfortunate thing was that it was a little to humid to enjoy them as much as we would have liked.Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your wonderful review, Cheryl! We are pleased to hear that your entire family had such a great time. You certainly chose the perfect cabin to relax and create memories that will last a lifetime. We are very sorry that the weather was less than perfect during your stay but we are delighted that you had a great time in the cabin. It was a pleasure to serve you. Hurry back, new memories are waiting to be made!
Great place for a BIG family or a large group of friends
I was expensive due to the visit in a peak season BUT! it was worth it. it was Spacious. Clean. easy to find the cabin. rapid response from the managers. we did Zipline activity (walkable distance from the Cabin).Some stuff such as trash bags, toilet papers, etc were not enough, but we could get them from Gas station which was very close to the Cabin. Oh there was no Laundry detergent! These are small things. you will enjoy your stay !!!Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your kind review, Jungeun. We are pleased that you and your friends enjoyed your recent stay at Creeksong! You certainly chose a great cabin to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. There are many activities in our area and zip-lining is a great way to enjoy the spectacular mountain views. In an attempt to avoid confusion, we do send out an email prior to arrival letting all guests know we do only provide a starter supply of the mentioned items. We are very sorry if there was any confusion regarding this. We hope you will choose to visit Elk Springs again on your next visit to The Great Smoky Mountains!
Me and my family had a great time at Creeksong. I loved sitting and listening to the creek. Love, love, love the porches especially the screened in one. The cabin was well stocked. This is the 2nd time we stayed at an Elk Spring Resort cabin and so far the Creeksong was our favorite and in the future we will always go through Elk Spring. We highly recommend the Creeksong.Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your fantastic 5-star review, Kathy! You certainly chose a great cabin to relax and take in the beautiful mountain scenery. The creek is certainly peaceful and the location of the cabin is ideal for hitting a hiking trail or downtown Gatlinburg for some shopping. We truly appreciate any recommendations, and we look forward to your next visit as well.
Beautiful setting... tired interior.
Drove 12 hours to meet kids and grandkids for a week.The setting was beautiful. The cabin is spacious, but needs some tlc. There were ants in the kitchen, the railing above the balcony was loose,the recliner was broken and tipped over. The bedding is old and it over all needs a thorough cleaning. The master bath smells musty. I don't consider it "luxury". We left a night early and I am sure will not get any credit. I was just ready to be home. Honestly... if it were cleaned up and old things replaced it would be amazing. We paid a hefty price for "tired".The outdoor fire place was nice... I know it's hard to keep rentals nice because people are so inconsiderate, but I really did need clean.KarenWould recommend to others? No
We appreciate your honest feedback, David. We truly value your input as it helps to ensure we are constantly improving. We appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention and they have already been addressed. We apologize for any inconvenience during your stay, however per our reservation agreement we need to be allowed the opportunity to rectify any situation that may arise. Often times, issues such as these can be taken care of in a timely manner. I have placed a request in to upper management in regards to your concerns and you will hear back from us regarding this. We want you to know it was not our intention to disappoint you. Thank you for your thoughts.
Creeksong just, Ok.
Creeksong has a lot of potential, but it falls short. Cabin needs to be updated. Bedding looks like it hasn't been updated in years, shower curtains old and dingy, cabin had junky feel to it. Disappointed.Would recommend to others? No
Thank you for your honest review, Bryan. We truly care about the quality of your stay and want you to feel at home during each visit. We have reported these issues to our housekeeping supervisor so they can be addressed. Please do not hesitate to contact us during your stay if you should find any item in the cabin is not up to par. 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.
We selected Creeksong because the rental property's description said it was located on a trout stream with pictures of Webb Creek, which runs through the backyard. Unfortunately, there really aren't trout there, as the creek is too small. Good news is that the Greenbrier entrance to GSMNP is just a few miles down the road - with great fishing. The decorating was really well done, but everything was very dusty (we have allergies). Also, the fabrics (bed spreads, pillow covers, etc) smelled of perspiration, so we spent half our time cleaning and washing. The TV in the master bedroom must be at least 20 years old - and remote didn't work. A modern, flat screen TV would cost less than 1 night's rent. We returned home a day early - disappointed.Would recommend to others? No
We appreciate your honest review, David. I am very sorry if there was no trout activity during your stay but you are very correct the Greenbriar entrance is very close to your cabin and our guests typically spend a lot of time in this beautiful area. I am very sorry if the cabin cleaning was not up to par. I have reported your concerns to the proper departments and I can assure you we will address them. However, please keep in mind we offer 24/7 staff assistance and are happy to address anything during your stay. Please don't suffer during your stay, call us. We love assisting our guests!
Wonderful Group Getaway
We are close-knit group of co-workers who chose Creeksong because it appeared to be a quiet getaway where we could relax and simply enjoy each other's company. The property did not disappoint! We had a wonderful stay that was far too short! We liked the fact that the cabin was off the beaten path. The creek was beautiful, and it's rushing sounds were so restful! We found 138 of the "at least 140" hidden bears, and one member of our party even got to see the real thing walking at the edge of the creek on the property. Initially there was a problem with the wheelchaif ramp, as it ended about 3 inches in height shy of the ground. This was problematic for me since I require the use of a power wheelchair, but the management company was very responsive and had someone out to fix the ramp almost immediately upon our calling them. Creeksong is great for those who love the mountains, prefer to stay in a cabin, but require a wheelchair to get around, as truly accessible cabins are very difficult to find. The cabin itself was very accessible. The others accompanying me had to move some of the furniture slightly so I could get around in the living area, but this was not difficult. If you are spending the wekend with someone in a wheelchair, and no one in the group is able to move furniture over a few inches, just let the Elk Springs know how much space you requir to be able to maneuver through the living area, and I'm certain they will rearrange the furniture a little for your stay. Make sure to ask property management to have a shower chair placed in the handicapped accessible restroom before you arrive if you need seating to take a shower. I highly recommend Creeksong for your next stay if you are looking for relaxation away from the bustle!Would recommend to others? Yes
Thank you for your fantastic review, Margaret! We are pleased that you enjoyed your recent stay at Creeksong! We certainly agree, this cabin is perfect for a small group to relax and enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I hope you had your camera ready to snag a photo of the bear! We are happy to hear that the you were able to access the cabin fairly well. We hope you will consider joining us again during your next trip to The Great Smoky Mountains!
