Get what you pay for!

This was not a bad cabin. Overall, my family and I enjoyed it. We found some items didn't work properly (e.g. karaoke machine, gaming table and stereo. Not major but, need to be removed. Biggest problem was no instruction regarding hot tube operation. Finally found out through trail and error by locating breaker box and flipping on breaker. Instructions located in cabin or around hot tube would have been helpful.

Upgrading "shack" to "cabin".

We, spouse and two grandchildren, felt the location was superb and. The condition of the cabin was good to excellent. There were a few minor bumps and dings, but I suspect most homes fall into about the same category. We'd love to go back in the fall or early spring and really "kickback". No problems with " bugs " at all.

We appreciate the feedback. I'm very sorry about that. We do have concerns for all of our customers' safety. Housekeeping does not move the furniture after each stay and I'm very sorry that it was overlooked. We appreciate your business.

Awesome Vacation Spot

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kickback Shack. We were there 6 nights. It was cool the 1st couple of days, so the gas fireplace felt wonderful. The views from the cabin were magificant. The pet play area was great. Our dog loved the easy access from our bedroom to the play area. It was also nice to have the entire back parch screened in with doors on each side so she could run around on the porch without being on a leash. Of course, we utilized the hot tub and truly enjoyed the relaxation. We liked the visit so much, we are planning a trip next year and hope to stay in the same cabin!

Great stay. Needed maintenance.

It was a great place to stay. Like any older building though, mice get in. The Hot tub and cabin itself needed some TLC, other than that it was great. The hot tub and slot machine were a hit with my family. We would definitely stay again. Location was fabulous. Getting there in the winter months would be tough though.

Kickback shack

We were pleased with the cabin, except for the cleanliness. The dishes had to be rewashed because of caked on food. Table and cabinets had sticky stuff on them. Everything else was clean and we enjoyed our stay.

We simply can not wait to get back to Kickback Shack!

We have been coming to the Smoky Mountains for about 20 years. We always stayed at the same motel with two king-sized beds. It is a nice clean motel with friendly employees, a very good breakfast, and an inside pool. We usually go up to the mountains 3-4 times a year for a long weekend. It began with my mother, my husband, and myself. We began taking our grandson who lives with us about 8 years ago. This year we decided to look into a cabin. As much as we always enjoy our trip, the cabin made our get-a-way like a brand new and deeper experience of what we are always needing and aiming for on these trips. Always before the motel was just where we went back to after the shows and other entertainments we went to while there. This time, going back to the Kickback Shack after our outings was like going back to another relaxing and absolutely peaceful haven. We loved our beautiful surround deck and cooked out while playing in the hot tub. On our first evening there a hawk swooshed down and plucked a squirrel up while we were sitting out on the porch. It was brutal in one way, but a glimpse of nature in the raw that still makes one feel like they have rolled back the time curtain into what our forefathers may have seen as an every day experience. We have always looked forward to what we were going "to do" when we go to the Smokey Mountains. We are planning on coming back and our number one requirement is that we get the Kickback Shack. It made everything else more. Why did we wait so long to try this? The Busbys love the Kickback Shack in the Smoky Mountains.
