family vacation for the grand kids

upon arrival there were 2 ladies at the desk, the first one was not so friendly, short on answers and acted like she wasn't happy to be there. however the second lady stepped straight in, welcomed us to Aunt bugs and immediately turned things around. upon arriving at the cabin, we were really impressed. other than an outlet in the kitchen not working, everything was great. We would choses aunt bugs again for future stays

Needs updated

The cabin was not very clean. Hot tub had something's floating in the water. The bathtubs had soap deposits from where the soap had sit from previous renters. Many things were very dusty. My husbands allergies killed him the entire time we were there. The microwave has a huge crack across the front and the dishwasher door was about broken. The noise it makes when you open/shut it (which is also very difficult) is very loud. The cabin is also about 12 min off the main strip and the driveway is VERY steep. Be careful about winter months. Other than these complaints, beds where comfortable and clean. Cabin is very pretty and very secluded. We did not contact management about any of these issues. Most couldn't be fixed besides the cleaning and there would have been fee for that per the rules and regs we agreed to prior to checking in. I would not recommend this cabin.

Not So Secluded

There IS a difference between being secluded & being remote. This cabin is in a remote location, but it is NOT secluded. There is a cabin directly above and a cabin directly below this one, so don't count on peace & quiet if that is your reason for a getaway. Be sure to let the rental company know about problems so you don't get billed. Not all jets in the hot tub & jacuzzi bath are functioning. Tiles in front if the jacuzzi & in the master bathroom are cracked and there is a big crack in the bathroom vanity countertop. Housekeeping doesn't seem to do anything more than wash towels and bed linens. For this, you have to pay a $45 housekeeping fee. Dust was caked on furniture, cobwebs covered lamp shades, & some of the walls had a coat of "dust fur". None of the floors were "cleaned", unless you count the area under the dining table that looked like a bucket of water was poured on it. We couldn't find any way to turn on the gas fireplace. FYI: The dishwasher does work...you just have to get the door lined up so it doesn't hit the base cabinet frame.

Wonderful Trip!

We had a wonderful time in the Smokey Mountains and really hated to leave. The cabin was just as it looked in he pictures! It was clean and having stayed with Aunt Bugs cabin rentals on many occasions I knew what to expect. the staff are always polite and helpful and the cabin was clean and well kept. The only problem I had was I could not find the Master was behind the bedroom door...boy did I feel stupid! LOL Would highly recommend this cabin. We were out and about everyday and stayed busy.

June Trip

The cabin was great we stayed there once before. The only issue is that there was no key for use when we got there so we had to use the lock box. I called the office and they applogized for it.
