Perfect vacation house for our family of 6 adults and 5 kids ages 1 - 10. The house was very clean. The kitchen was beautiful and fully equipped. We spent a lot of time on the covered porch reading, playing card games and enjoying the forest view. Another highlight was a bear in the driveway on our last day.
Wonderful house. We had 4 yr old and his parents downstairs. There were 3 adults upstairs. Plenty of room. Kitchen is great with all one needs. I liked the surrounding covered porch the best?. Had breakfast on it. Wonderful to see sunrise.
This place was an excellent place for our family to stay. I would stay here again.
It was our family’s Christmas getaway location and we had a great time. The house was clean, modern, and comfortable. And the setting, location, and atmosphere were all terrific. The Christmas trees and decorations were also a nice touch. All in all, it was just what we needed and just right for the purpose.
Excellent cabin, very spacious and clean.
We loved this place. It was clean and so close to downtown Gatlinburg!! We will be visiting this property again.
Beautiful, Clean, Relaxing Stay with great Jacuzzi Spa. Well kept, clean home. The living room furniture was fairly new and the reclining couch & loveseat was great for relaxing with a good book. Loved the home with such a nice view with swivel/rockers on front balcony, so comfy for morning coffee time. Great tiled Master bath, master bedroom was roomy and mattress was firm, allowing for a good night's sleep. Peacefully private, convenient to all restaurants & shopping. Colonial properties staff were wonderful. So helpful, and sent updated emails during reservation period with information prior to our arrrival. On the day of arrival they called us to ensure all went well. We really enjoyed our stay. We appreciate your commentment to providing genuinely excellent service!! A special Thank you to all the wonderful staff!!!

Beautiful home lots of room and clean my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay
The home is absolutely beautiful. Very clean and the beds are very comfortable. We had a wonderful time. Definitely will recommend to my friends to stay here. Can't say enough about how beautiful the kitchen is. Really enjoyed the outside patio.
This house is amazing! We really enjoyed it! It was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed! We will definitely be back! I think we will add this as one of our yearly vacation spots! My parents enjoyed it so much! Can’t wait to return !!!
Wonderful large cabin with amazing kitchen.
This cabin was it! It was very spacious, the beds were so comfortable, the bathrooms and the kitchen were beautiful. It was spotless. I would love to stay here again on my next visit to Gatlinburg.
We had Bears on the deck and driveway 3 times in the 2 days we were there! Beautiful house and wonderful covered and uncovered decks!
What can I say but this was the most wonderful place in the world. This is a brand new place and the just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and the Aquarium. We are planning on bringing the entire family next year. I will not want to stay anywhere else because this place is perfect!
We loved how close this was to everything yet how lovely it was from the outside, too. It has plenty of space to spread out and the whole family enjoyed it. I will try to stay longer next time!!
The house was beautiful. Very new and clean. Extremely spacious. Would definitely stay again.
We had an amazing time! We're already planning our next visit back.
This home is the most beautiful, luxurious place we have ever stayed at in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area! And we’ve stayed in a lot of cabins! First off, the view is spectacular! The kitchen is immaculate. The bedrooms are spacious and all the beds were so comfy! Our family enjoyed this space to be able to spend time together and we will definitely be back!
This was by far the best home we have stayed in as we come ever year for our family vacation. One travels from KY and two from NC. Thank you for sharing our beautiful home with us!
This house was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! My family, and I, had a great time there, we even extended our stay because we did not want to leave. The amenities were wonderful, especially the hot tub and game room, however, the best part was the balcony area outside of the kitchen. We spent most of our time sitting out there, relaxing, and enjoying nature. My family, and I, come to Gatlinburg 3-4 times per year and have stayed in many places, however, this, by far, was the best! We look forward to booking here, again, in the near future!
We had a fabulous time. The Bright Side of the Road was an excellent place for our family to get to gather for the holiday. Very nicely appointed rental we will stay again when the opportunity comes and highly recommend this rental as well as Colonial Properties Cabin and Resort rentals, excellent customer service.
