    Cabin fireplace did not work. No internet. Washer was broke bc of a belt broken so we could not use. Igniter for the grill did not work. Cabin very hard to find. Pictures on the website are larger than what the Cabin was. Very disappointed.

    Especially with the cost of the rental and so many things not working!

    Hi Virginia, thanks for letting us know about your stay. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they would like to share the following:
    -The guests encountered challenges in locating the cabin and subsequently reached out to us for assistance. They had attempted to rely on GPS for navigation, despite the clear indication in the driving directions that were provided to them via email that GPS may not lead them directly to the cabin.
    -Additionally, the guests inquired about the Wifi connection and requested the password, which we promptly provided. It is important to note that the internet was functioning properly, as was the fireplace. On occasion, the pilot light may need to be relit, and instructions for doing so can be found in the Welcome Book. Alternatively, they were encouraged to contact us should they encounter any difficulties, and we would have been glad to dispatch someone to address the issue.
    -Unfortunately, the guests did not inform us of their ongoing inability to connect to the internet or their difficulties in operating the fireplace. Additionally, the washing machine was reported as non-functional by our cleaner before the guests' arrival. Given the short notice and the cabin's quick turnaround between guests, it was exceedingly challenging to arrange for either a repair or a new machine to be delivered on the same day. We have since acquired a replacement washer following their stay.
    Our commitment to all our guests is to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests as evidenced in all other reviews.

  • Cozy mid week trip


    Cabin was everything we could have imagined and more. It was the perfect size for just the two of us.

  • Beautiful cabin but difficult road


    The Cabin was beautiful, with beautiful views of the mountains. Very quiet at night to sleep. The internet reception is poor, only working when you are on the cabin's porch. Also, the garbage you create has to be disposed of in town; the renter(s) can not access the garbage bin due to wild animals in the area. (We did not witness any wild animals). The road leading up to the cabin is tough to access, and in inclement weather, I believe we would have been stuck at the cabin. A twisting turning road; that was difficult to maneuver on (looked more like a driveway) that was not listed on the rental page. We never tried the road in the dark because of no lights and the difficulty of accessing and maneuvering the road. We could not reach the property managers via phone. Even though beautiful, we will not rent it again.

    Sandra, thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. The listing does state that it is at the end of a winding road in the Great Smoky Mountains, but we are sorry if this caught you off guard. The rural location of this property is part of its charm but, unfortunately, it also means that wifi and cell service can occasionally be slow. We appreciate your feedback and hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon!
