Definitely a "Sweet Retreat"!

We spent our 25th anniversary at Sweet Retreat. It was everything we had hoped for and more! The cabin was so clean and tastefully decorated. The view from the bedroom is incredible! The clouds in and over the mountain were ever changing and we didn't want to leave after spending a week and waking up to a different view every morning. Elk Ridge Resorts was easy to work with and responded to our one maintenance issue immediately. The hot tub was leaking and they were able to get someone out to fix it within an hour even though it was the weekend. We spent every evening in the hot tub on the deck watching the stars. I would say the only downside to this cabin would be that it is in a neighborhood of cabins, so if you are looking for something isolated out in the woods, this cabin is not for you. Everything inside and out was so beautiful, though, that I would recommend giving it a try even if you thought you wanted isolation! When you are laying up in bed looking out the windows it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere!

Cabin in the woods

The property was very clean and tidy. The setting lovely. We were dismayed there was no hair dryer in the bathroom and needed to purchase one. My husband commented on the very old linens and towels and the pillows were of a very poor quality. Certainly not up to what you would expect considering the high price of the cabin.

Host Resonse (September 15, 2017):

Will definitely be back!

The cabin was gorgeous and had more privacy than we expected for how close the cabins were to eachother. It was a short drive to get to the parkway which was super convenient. The only problem we had was that the silverware was still dirty and we had to re wash all of it before we used it. Other than that everything was perfect!

Solo Get-A-Way

A Sweet Retreat was beautiful! It was very comfortable and has a TON of natural light that floods the entire cabin. It is nicely decorated and has a very welcoming/homey feel. The property can actually sleep 6 even though it is advertised as a one bedroom--there are two sleeper sofas..and two full baths.I'd highly recommend this cabin and will definitely stay here again. It's so close to all the action of Pigeon Forge and easy access to Gatlinburg. This is a gem!

Nice cabin

The cabin was very clean, the bed was comfortable, media room with Netflix was nice to sit around and do nothing but binge watch some shows. I personally didn't like the cabins being close to other cabins, could here kids out playing which that was the point of our vacation relaxation and kid free. The only reason I would not recommend this cabin or Elk springs because the information book in the cabin states that firearms and concealed carry is not permitted on there properties. I don't tend to support companies that deny my rights to protect my family and myself. If that's not a concern for you, then I would recommend it. Also the drive up to the cabin is very steep, would imagine you'd need 4 wheel drive in the winter months.

Host Resonse (September 12, 2017):

Jeremy, it is not the intention of Elk Springs Resort to infringe upon your right to carry a firearm. We have the right to set our own rules, but if you choose to not follow them and exercise your rights, we do expect you to be responsible about it. We have found several pistols that "responsible" gun owners have left behind in cabins. On top of refrigerators, under mattresses or out in plain sight. The last one that was brought to me was fully loaded! I then have to contact the Sheriff to come out and retrieve the gun, as this simply cannot be shipped back to the owner. The Sheriff has better things to do with his time and the whole procedure is very time consuming. It is our wish that all of our guests would be responsible and think about the consequences of a small child checking into the cabin next and finding the gun that they "hid" out of sight. For this reason, we have chosen to put in writing our wish that guests simply do not bring guns onto our property. Thank you for understanding the "why" behind this information being in our cabins.

Rather Disappointed

Let me start by saying that this was our 4th or 5th stay with Elk Springs Resort and we generally LOVE our cabin. However, this rental was an entirely different story. We have gotten quite accustomed to the cleanliness, the posh linens and the comfortable beds. None of these things existed at Sweet Retreat. The first thing we noticed was that the floors seemed pretty dirty. A big deal for a crawling infant. The bathrooms weren't up to the cleanliness standards that we are used to with this company either. The linens were so rough that they literally hurt to use on your body and speaking of body - mine hurt after sleeping in the bed here. I didn't take a hair dryer because there has always been one available and this cabin had no hair dryer either. Yes, I could have read this on the website but when it's your 4th stay, you have a tendency to make assumptions. Won't make that mistake again.
