Beautiful pool- To Cold

Property was nice. The only thing is that the pool is cold. I talked with management and they stated that the pool is kept 82-85 degrees. My grandkids ages 4-12 were cold and didn't spend much time in the pool. This pool was the deciding factor in choosing a property location. We decided to spend the extra money on the pool even though we didn't need all of the bedrooms. I am not sure we would choose this property again; since the kids were too cold to swim. However, location was great and away from Pigeon Forge!

Host Response (October 15, 2018):

We appreciate your honest review, Theresa. Your feedback helps to ensure we are constantly improving. It is regrettable you feel you could not thoroughly enjoy the pool during your stay. The pool's water can only be set to a standard temperature of up to 85 degrees to avoid condensation and other potential damages to the pool room. This has, thus far, not been an issues with our luxury pool cabins. We are very sorry this created a problem for you and your family but we hope you will allow us another opportunity to show you a true 5-star visit. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

Never again

The cabin itself was great! The only bad thing I have to say is that it was boxes of flooring in every room on the floor under the beds and in the closets! Spoke with someone at the property who agreed to refund me for our stay but it’s been theee weeks and now she claims to not remember having the conversation! I would say her name but I won’t ! If you don’t have any issues this is a great place to stay but if you do have problems make sure to record all calls just in case they come down with amnesia

Host Response (October 15, 2018):

We appreciate you taking the time to review your visit, Shanova. The cabin was indeed due for some upgrading, and we apologize if you feel the supplies weren't put out of the way enough for your group. We did send a few members of our staff out to remove what they could of the flooring. It is regrettable that these items in your cabin ruined your entire visit. You did speak to our management team and they were very clear this is not something we refund for. As for your claims of speaking to someone that guaranteed you a refund, this is simply not true. We have a very strict chain of command, and none of our staff members would guarantee anyone a refund without first consulting upper management. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

My family loved this cabin!

I definitely underestimated this cabin. It was huge. There were 3 couples in the 3 bedrooms downstairs & our kids were able to stay upsatirs in the extra large bedroom & in the media/gameroom area where there are additional bunkbeds. They loved the pool. We will definitely go back.

Laughed and loved our time at the lodge!

We really enjoyed the lodge! It looked just like the pictures. We were impressed with the safety feature of the door to the pool, and how clean the lodge was upon entering. It was very roomy, and the upstairs loft with the games, pool table, and foosball table were a big hit for our children. The adults also had a lot of fun upstairs reliving our childhood with our favorite 80s video games. We were a little surprised how friendly the Bears were, we saw them on the driveway, right out off the back porch, in the front yard, etc. So that is something to definitely be aware of. We’ll be visiting the lodge again!!

My Family Stay

The overall experience was great, however there are a few things that need some attention. One of eyes on the stove doesn’t work, you have to put the oven on 500 in order for it to cook your food, and the biggest issue was the water. The pressure was significantly low, two people could not take a shower at the same time. And the water only stayed hot for a short period of time. If these issue are fixed this property would be a great property to stay at while on vacation.

Host Response (June 19, 2018):

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Marcy. We do see that these issues were reported during your stay. The first issues reported were addressed, however, the issues with the water pressure and the dryer did have to wait until after you checked out. We offered to send someone out to address these issues when you called to report them, but you told the representative not to, it was too late. We also see that you did speak with Lois on Wednesday, June 12th. She made sure each of your concerns were addressed during your conversation and explained to you that since the neighboring cabins are managed by another company we would be happy to contact the management company on your behalf. We did try to assist you with stopping the fireworks as maintenance technicians were sent out repeatedly, but by the time we were informed of which cabin was shooting them off and our technicians arrived they had stopped. We also called the sheriff's department on your behalf and were told they are legal in this area. We do not allow fireworks at any of our cabins, however, that is not the case with other cabin companies. We can understand your frustration in not receiving a phone call back from management and chose to reply via email, as was explained in the email. We offered to assist you via email, as you were threatening to dispute all charges and file a report through BBB against us. You had stated that one of our representatives lied and another was deceitful during previous phone conversations and we felt this would be a better way to communicate from that point on. At no point did we stop trying to assist you, we just did not communicate in the manner you were requesting. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced and hope you were able to enjoy your time spent in our area.

It was almost unreal.

For starters, as soon as we walked in we did a walk through as we (stated several times) had a 1 year old with us and we did not want her to get into anything dirty/dangerous. Sure enough, the very first room to the left had a dirty glass bowl in it with what looked like rice remnants left in it, and it had a horrible smell. My friend who was going to stay in that room took a picture and sent it to me as the stay is under my name and I would naturally reach out to you all directly. THEN, we went to step outside to check out the back porch area and upon turning the knob I realized the actual knob/fixture was detached from the door!!! Which means someone had to have either kicked in the door or the tenants previous to us broke it. The window of the room I stayed in, ground floor the back left side of the cabin facing the woods, WAS UNLOCK-ABLE because the lever to lock the window was broken. So although the room was a bit raised from the yard and a stranger could have still very easily slid into the room I was staying in without us knowing while we were in town or EVEN AT NIGHT! Tennessee was lovely, this cabin was far from it. Broken toilet, broken door, broken lock on window, dirty bowl in closet (proof that the cabin was in fact not cleaned thoroughly) sticky dirty floor, cracked tiles on the floor smack dab in front of the door to enter the pool area that I cut my foot on ... it was almost unreal.

Host Response (May 02, 2018):

Candice: I personally had the cabin inspected just prior to your arrival and I can assure you there was no hidden bowl of rice in the closet. You wrote in earlier to inquire if the cabin would be very clean and we made sure it was. As for the maintenance issues, we sent someone out right away to resolve those issues for you. Our job is to provide you with a nice cabin getaway experience. You posted a very negative review that was seriously exaggerated. As I mentioned prior to your arrival, this cabin has had nothing but 4 and 5 star reviews. So, it didn't go from great to "BAD, BAD" overnight. We understand we can't please everyone and it was never our intention to disappoint you. We hope despite the issues you found with the cabin that you enjoyed your time in the Smoky Mountains.
