FANTASTIC MOUNTAIN GETAWAY
We had a wonderful experience here. The hiking was out of this world, 5 stars! The property was amazing! Clean, beautiful, serene, and full of wonderful amenities! The hot tubs (inside and out) were a complete bonus after a long day of hiking!! A modern kitchen, pool table, arcade game, WI-FI that actually worked! There are several decks which gave us an opportunity to enjoy the sunrises and sunsets outside. Just breathtaking! We loved it here!!! Thank you so much! Brenda & Eve

The cabin was perfect. We were able to enjoy the business of Gatlinburg and at the end of the day were able to relax with the sounds of the wilderness. The cabin met each of our expectations and more. We had room to enjoy each other and if wanted, to enjoy alone time. I would definitely consider renting this cabin again.

The cabin exceeded our expectations. Great view of the mountains. Far away from all the tourists but still close enough to the attractions. Plenty of room for our family. The indoor pool and game console were a hit with our kids. Would definitely stay here again.

This place was fabulous for our family of 7. So much entertainment for kids of all ages, and plenty of space to spread out. Beautifully perched atop the mountain but great location for accessing all attractions. We will recommend it and return!
