The perfect family get-away!

We needed a place to get away as a family, and this couldn't have been a better place. It had everything we needed. Our only real problem while there was the home theater system. The first problem was that it was IN the game room; it wasn't a separate room as the description led us to believe. Creative photography and the listing of "theater room" AND "game room" led us to believe the 2 were separate, as they should be. It's hard to watch movies in a room where others are playing loud games. There were 5 remotes on the table, and none were labeled, and there were no instructions on how to get it to work. It was very frustrating, and we lost a lot of time trying to get it to work. After we finally got it going, it was amazing! But there really should be instructions and labels on the remotes. And they should really make it clear that it is a "theater/game room in an open loft", so whatever you're watching, the whole cabin is listening to. Movies had to be family oriented and watched as group. We couldn't watch anything we didn't want young children to see or hear. I wish we had known that in advance; my grandson was frightened by parts of Star Wars and Jurassic Park movies, so we had to stop them. Not everyone wanted to watch cartoons or children's movies either. But the cabin was clean, the pool was amazing, and the staff was great! We would go back anytime!

Good family get-away

Overall we had a great time. Due to extreme freak weather conditions (6 degrees) we couldn't really get out like we wanted to. The home is beautiful with lots of space and the area is very quiet. We enjoyed watching movies on the home theater and the kids become obsessed with foosball and all of the TVs had cable. The kids also enjoyed the pool very much. Some aspects about the home to consider however:There are 3 bathrooms which are all in bedrooms. So there are no free-standing bathrooms. There's one bedroom downstairs with no bathroom. So if you are sleeping in that room, you'd need to go into someone else's room to use the bathroom...not too convenient in the middle of the night! The temperature in the upstairs master bedroom was SIGNIFICANTLY lower then the rest of the upstairs. There was a noticeable draft coming through the window which was right behind the headboard and in 10 degree weather, every degree counts! Some instructions on how to work the theater screen/sound system would have been nice too. Remember to log out of Netflix before you leave! The theater room is not in a separate room, it's part of the upstairs loft..just FYI. This property is NOT located in Gatlinburg nor is it on the Elks SPring resort, it is about a good 30 min drive to Gatlinburg. Overall I would definitely return to this same cabin but in the spring or summer!

Ok but not the greatest

The experience was pretty good and the cabin was pretty nice just bring your own sheets and pillows. The goodFirst and foremost no bed bugs and I'm pretty hardcore when I check and I did not find any remnants of bed bugs as of 12/02/17.The location was pretty nice 15 minutes or so from Gatlinburg.The layout was okay plenty of places to sleep.The setting in the neighborhood where the cabin is located was very nice.There's lots of room to sit and eat as a family.The pool is nicely heated and very comfortable and surprisingly clean.The badThey do not clean the pillows has there was a semen stain about the size of a pancake on one of the pillows luckily when we go places like this we bring sheets pillows pillow cases and covers and we don't use any of the stuff that is there anyway.There is zero outside sitting areas and no fire pits at this particular cabin.The views in the height elevation of the cabin was very low not like the pictures if you're going there thinking you're on top of a mountain you're not.You're paying top of the Mountain prices for low elevation lodging.After all that my overall experience was pretty good and to be honest would probably stay in this cabin again if the prices were a little bit lowerAbout 15% cheaper would be good.

Not as Expected

The cabin was as described, but definitely needs some improvements. The indoor pool is awesome, but ownership needs to improve ventilation as their was mildew along the ceiling. The beds in the house were plentiful, but for any length of stay, these need to be replaced, as they were not comfortable to sleep on. The grill didn't work properly, only one burner came on, and halfway.

GREAT FAMILY GETAWAY

The cabin was beautiful. Indoor pool, hot tub, 2 arcade games, ping pong table, foosball, and pool table there was no need to leave the cabin for entertainment. Very spacious and a well equipped kitchen. We had brought a few of our own bowls and appliances when there was no need for it. The cabin was very well maintained we had no issues during our stay. We only stayed 2 nights but now planning to stay a week next year!

Great place to stay with a large family!

This cabin was excellent! Easy check-in with no hassles whatsoever. No office to check in with, you just go directly to your cabin. The cabin was so great that we decided to just spend a couple of days hanging out enjoying the pool. Only about 30-40 minutes from Dollywood and Gatlinburg.
