Great Location to all the happenings

Our overall stay was great! The cabin was kinda hard to find. We call the number provided for assistance and got no answer. I almost panicked. But someone called back. However, our stay was pretty good. Great location

Faulty Alarm system

We had a decent stay but the alarm system is not connected to a monitoring system we were cooking one morning and the alarm went off for awhile before I could find the code I was given and NO ONE came on the system to see if everything was ok. Then the next night at about 1:15 in the morning the system goes off extremely loud saying there was a fire and bedroom 6 the glass was BROKEN. We were HORRIFIED it woke us up out our sleep! Once we pulled it together then realized nothing was wrong we scrambled to turn it off NO ONE STILL CAME OR TRIED TO FIND OUT IF WE WERE OK. Thank goodness we were but if it had been truly an emergency we would have been DOOMED! After that the next day we packed up and left a day earlier because that faulty system had us on edge the rest of the the time.

Host Response (October 13, 2020):

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. It is regrettable that we are only hearing of this issue now. This sounds like a major issue with the alarm and I can assure you our team will look into this ASAP. Please do not hesitate to contact us during your stay if anything is faulty or not up to par. We offer 24/7 staff assistance and we want nothing more than to ensure our guest's safety and that they enjoy their Smoky Mountain Getaway. The alarm code is provided to each guest at the time of their check-in along with the door code to enter. We are sorry for any confusion and sincerely wish we would have known sooner.

Great Cabin... Just Don't Arrive At Night

My husband and I input the directions into Google Maps as the confirmation email suggested. We were directed mostly to the right location... The cabin is not located on the Elk Springs Lodge property, which is clearly indicated on the directions. However, it would have been most helpful to have listed the name of the property it was on as well as having someone answering the phones that night who was versed in the property. I am beyond thankful that someone did answer our call, but to be told that this was a newer property and the only person that could get us to the correct location was a maintenance person (who thankfully helped us get turned around), is a little sad. The cabin overall is very nice and we had a lovely time. I just wish the directions to get to the cabin were a bit clearer. The only other thing I wish that were different is the hot tub. It's in the back of the property and there is no view. Do also be aware that the large windows are lovely but cause the upper floor and bedroom to be pretty warm most of the day. It was just us and we mostly stayed on the bottom floor, but just something to consider overall. We enjoyed the view and the fact that there is a Publix a few miles down the road was nice as you are going to want to cook on this awesome stovetop! The overall experience was nice and was quiet and secluded and a fun honeymoon, I just would strongly suggest updating the directions and having all customer service phone reps being knowledgeable of the locations both on and off the Elk Springs property.

Very Cozy!

We were overall very pleased with Fireside Chats! It was very clean and cozy. The view was awesome especially at night with the lights from the town. The location was in close proximity to everything. We wish that the house itself was marked a little better from the main road as we came in after dark and had a little trouble finding the driveway. The kitchen was perfect for making family meals with plenty of counter space and seating for all. The furniture was great and the beds were so comfy! The only disappointment was the hottub which is in need of some attention (or possible replacement due to rust). Overall we were very pleased with this cabin and will most definitely be looking to Elksprings for our next cabin rental.

Host Response (February 20, 2021):

Thank you, Dana, for sharing your recent experience. We are delighted to know you enjoyed your time at Fireside Chats. It certainly is a cozy cabin to relax and enjoy the mountain views. Driving in the dark in are area, some roads can be hard to find. We assure you we will try to make the road signage or at the very least the directions a bit more clear. It is disappointing to know the hot tub is not in tip top shape. We will certainly have an experienced technician inspect it. We enjoyed having you as our guests, and we look forward to working with you again in the future. Remember, as a repeat visitor you will save 10% on future stays. Thank you!

Great time

We had a great time . The cabin is beautiful and the view is phenomenal. It is on a steep hill so I was shown just how out of shape I was when climbing the stairs lol. We had one issue while we were there and the Maintenance man came out and fixed it a timely manner and he was super nice. Honestly a few amenities could use some minor fixing, but over all we were so happy we picked this cabin. It really added to our experience and we will definitely rent from Elk Springs again

Clean cabin, not good location

The cabin was nice, but it doesn’t have good view.Furniture was nice , but the internet was very poor. The upper floor bedroom has no privacy as you have to go through it to go to the games area.

Great Cabin, A Little Hard to Find

We had a great time at the cabin, but it was a little tricky to find. Google Maps will try to take you to a spot on the main road (Mountain Parkway), but there is no access from there. You turn at the Pine Mountain Resort sign. I was somewhat prepared for this since I looked at a satellite view of the property, but it would have been helpful if the written instructions from Elk Springs had made it clear that the sign you see from the road is for Pine Mountain Resort. The cabin has a great kitchen, but we ended up using the outdoor gas grill, which was clean and worked well. We also enjoyed the fire pit in the back.I think this would be a great cabin for a family holiday with the large, open kitchen with it's double ovens (one gas and one electric).Back to the directions, once you turn at the Pine Mountain Resort sign, you want to drive up the road on the left of the sign and Fireside Chats is the first cabin on the left, and there is a sign with it's name on the cabin.

Fireside Chats

This was a great location with a wonderful view. Secluded but easy to get to and close to Pigeon Forge. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was adequately stocked. The gas fireplace did not work upon arrival. After two visits from maintainence it still did not turn on, so we gave up.We've rented from Elk Springs many times, and will do so again but will probably stay elsewhere as we like to try different cabins and locations.
