#466 River Dream August Review-Great Location with the River

1. The lockbox is difficult for those who don't have the dexterity to get the key and the green key holder inside the lockbox, enter the code and snap the lock closed. One time, it took me 10 minutes to get the thing closed. Obviously, a larger lockbox would help as the key kept falling out and apparently would only work inserted one way. A bit of a pain. 2. Each day, there were ants around the kitchen sink. There are now about fifty less ants than when we arrived as I killed every one I saw. 3. For no apparent reason, one day the smoke alarm went off. At least it wasn't in the middle of the night. 4. The toilet in Bedroom #2 needs attention. It takes about 10 minutes to refill the tank. We used only twice. 5. There are conflicting items on the instructions we received versus the instructions by the refrigerator. One said to clean the dishes and put them back in the cabinets. The other said to put them in the dishwasher and to start the dishwasher. We did the latter. 6. The instructions by the refrigerator (only) said to call Aunt Bugs when we were leaving the cabin at the end of our stay. There is no phone number listed by those instructions. 7. The TV remotes were a challenge to figure out. I believe one of them may need new batteries. 8. I knew we were supposed to have Wi-Fi and was waiting to call Aunt Bugs about that, until a number of hours later, I saw the letter attached to the refrigerator with the code. There had been no communication as I recall as to where to find the code. I thought it would have been in the email with the lockbox code but was not. Thank you for your communications about the cabin. The system worked well to get the email with the lockbox code and the directions. We will consider using Aunt Bugs in the future.

Cabin needs an update and thorough cleaning

Overpriced for what you get. There's a number of unfriendly "house rules" that must be followed or you'll pay exhorbitant fees/fines per rental agreement. Average nights stay was nearly double the advertised rate once all of the extra housekeeping fee, service fee, pet fee, booking fees were added on. The cabin smelled like wood smoke and was pretty dirty with debris and cobwebs, especially on the screen porch. Don't believe it has been cleaned in some time. Several safety issues. Wobbly railings on entry steps, bathtub hand hold comes off in your hands! Old appliances and furniture needs updating. Cable TV service went out the first night and remained out during stay. TV in bedroom had bad screen with line burned in and needs replaced. Both TV's are old tech and needs replaced. Best I can give this property is "adequate" for 3-night stay. I cannot recommend this property and won't stay here again.

River dreaming

We love river dream and have stayed twice but needs a good cleaning. Walls need painting and more linens. Huge spider and spider web in guest closet baseboards and wall very dirty and dusty. Could use new cooking utensils they are not healthy with Teflon peeling. Porch lovely but needs good cleaning also. Would have to consider twice about staying again for price of unit should be cleaner.

Peaceful and secluded while within walking distance of the main Gatlinburg attractions. Just like I hoped.

Great Stay

Great location as it is just as you enter Gatlinburg, so it works well if you want to go there or Pigeon Forge. Although it is next to several cabins, we were never disturbed. It is right on the water, with steps to walk down to creek, but 3 cabins down is a flat path easier for small ones, or dogs.Everything was great, except on the last day a man showed up yelling at us because we were still parked there (though no longer using the cabin) after the 10am check out. We reported him and the company was very kind but stated they did not know who he was, so you shouldn't have the same issue, just an oddity we incurred.
