Perfect location

Overall our stay was enjoyable. The cabin was clean, the kitchen provided plenty for us to be able to cook, the hot tub was great and the location was perfect!! A few down sides included the mold on the ceiling and some walls where it looked like water had leaked in. Also, the futon was broken and we were unable to open it to use it as a bed.

Shades of the Past!

Great Cabin. The picture does not do it justice. This cabin was nestled in the mountains. Walk into the front door into living room and kitchen together. Fun decorations. Jacuzzi in master, walk downstairs to the two rooms downstairs with a game room. Rooms are spacious and nicely kept. Great cabin, would def. recommend and stay again. Two porches for looking out. Hot tub on second floor. A bit of a distance from the pool but we didn't have time for it anyway.

A little disappointed

The location wasn't bad, just a hilly 1 way made it a little difficult to get around. Pool was way to small for the number of cabins in community. We had mice not just droppings but active mice, had to wash everything b4 using it, also droppings in sleeper sofa, sink in main floor slow drained, and hot tub smelled funny. Lower level bathrooms both smelled like urine

Good place to stay if you will be gone most of the time

Worked well for our family of 4.Kids had the downstairs and we had the main floor. Cleanliness was satisfactory and everything we need in the kitchen to cook two meals a day. Didn't care for the carpet in living room and bedrooms. Location is great if you plan visiting the Smokey Mountain Park frequently and still want to be in town for entertainment. Hot tub had a funky odor after the first two days. Pool was nice to fill in some time with the kids.

The house was nice and everything was in working order. We had issues with the layout wasn't very good. The door at the top of the steps opened in front of the door to the 1st floor bedroom door. At the foot of the steps there was a landing with a door on each side into the two downstairs rooms. These doors both opened out onto the landing and into each other. There were only 3 chairs for the kitchen table. We had to bring a plastic chair in from the deck to have 4 chairs. Also, the pool table had been an old coin operated table that had been modified and the coin receiver had been removed. Now when any ball goes into a pocket it is routed to the hole where just the queue ball is designed for making it so you often had to remove several balls to get a certain ball out. It also had a mixture of pool balls with several missing and several duplicate balls which made it hard to play a proper pool game. A set of pool balls if fairly cheap! I would recommend this property but I would make sure they knew my concerns.

Great place for family that is close to Pigeon Forge.

We had no problems of consequence with our vacation rental. The only problem with our rental was getting the tv's to work in all rooms. We did call to have someone come out and work on getting the tv's to work with the cable so we could watch tv at night. They did send someone out promptly and got one of the tv's going. The one in the front room they did not get to work though. Other than that everything was as promised. Really liked the location of being so close to the Pigeon Forge area. Dollywood, the Old Mill, and the Island were very close as really was the Smokey Mountain National Park. The drives are steep so would be a challenge in the winter if you stay here, but it is really a quiet place to spend time.

Darlene with your after hours call service was awful.

Great Cabin, Great Owner, Aunt Bugs Manager, Steven was great. Darlene with the after hours call service was awful. We arrived late after a 12 hour drive and the cabin was extremely hot. We were also concerned about cameras watching us which was a new experience as I had never seen that on any of the cabins i had ever rented including all Aunt Bugs Cabins. I called the after hours service about the heat and how many cameras that there were (and where) and that it was a little creepy. Darlene was immediately rude, aggressive, nasty and then shockingly hung up on me. I have never written a review complaining about anyone in my life, this is a first for me. She was so far out of control I felt like I had no choice in this instance.I have been an Aunt Bugs customer for years and have never had a problem. In addition to behaving in an awful manner she provided bad information.She advised that there was a camera on the sauna which was concerning as my 20 year old daughter would have been getting in and out in her bikini. I was 30 seconds from leaving, calling the credit card company to cancel payment and heading back to Florida when thankfully the owner suddenly called me. He was wonderful, solved the AC issue in minutes and it was clear there was only one camera on the front porch (not on the sauna). Subsequently, even though I cancelled the AC service via Darlene. The AC guys came out 2 hours later and then we had 2 sets of maintenance guys come out the next day (hopefully the owner was't charged). Darlene is not only rude and bad for business, she is incompetent.
