“It is not how it is presented on the website.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Here is what you need to know: The cabin is in a good location close to Gatlinburg. The back view is beautiful and the hot tub is adequate. There are cabins on either side very close to this cabin and conversations from next door can be heard. There isn't much privacy in that aspect. There are aboout 10 DVD movies availabe to watch and a Playstation 2 for kids. The cabin has wi-fi, a pool table, and a nice kitchen and a washer/dryer combo.

The place is need of some cosmetic touches - new paint, hand rails and towel rack fixed properly, deck stained etc. It has an overall feeling of being dirty. It could use a good scrubbing from top to bottom. This is one of the few cabins which accepts pets and you can tell. We pulled an extra blanket out of a dresser and it smelled of dog. The pictures on the website and TripAdvisor show beautiful flower arrangements and decorations around the hot tub. Those aren't there and neither are the nice looking chairs on the deck.

There is one thermostat in the cabin which is located downstairs. It controls both the upstairs and downstairs. The upstairs was burning up hot, but downstairs was comfortable. I called the customer service number to ask about the heat and sat on hold for 20 minutes. Music would play and someone would pick up and then place the call on hold again. This happened several times and once I heard the female talking before she was able to place the call on hold. I finally got through and the female had a maintenance man call me. The reason it was so hot is because they went ahead and lit the pilot light on the gas logs. The glass was hot to the touch. They should have waited until it got colder outside before lighting the pilot light.

You are required to leave your key in a combination lock box located at the front door. There is a security camera at the front door aiming right at the lock box and door handle. Not all of the cabins had this. It was a litte freaky wondering who was watching you come and go.

To end on a positive note, the check in process was easy. They email you instructions about how to obtain the combination for the lock box. You are supposed to be able to call a number, punch in a code, and receive and an automatic message gives you the combination. That didn't work so we called the customer service number and they gave us the code over the phone. Check-out was easy - just lock-up and leave.
