Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderfull place We had a wonderful time but would suggest the following things be improved. The grill onsite was in deplorable condition and we nearly started the deck on fire. We also would have liked to have a few more pots and pans to cook with. The locks on a couple of the doors were in bad shape and until we fixed them they wouldn't have stopped any thing from getting in. As I said before, we had a great time in the area and the home was for the most part wonderful. Oh, by-the-way, I don't know if there is anything that can be done about the parking but it is terrible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location with a Kamikaze driveway Wonderful home at great location with awesome scenic views. The overall home has great Feng Shui - everything flows and is laid out nicely. Everyone was very comfortable very fast here in this cabin, and this almost never happens with our annual group of 9 fussy whiners. The home comes nicely equipped and especially appreciated was the central A/C and all the ceiling fans. The refrigerator ice maker was simply a godsend and kept up with all our ice needs. It was great not to have to haul 25 or 50lb bags of ice to a cabin for a change. Downsides are the driveways which require a kamikaze pilot, especially if you are in a huge full size SUV. Bring your smallest vehicle that fits all your stuff, because for the long-wheelbase full-size Tahoe/Yukon/Expedition/Escalade class of SUV's, departing the main road to go down the driveway here will be like driving off the side of a cliff. Once you get to the bottom with 2 vehicles, nobody can turn around and the only way out is driving up and backwards at a 45 degree angle, which is not for the timid or inexperienced. One of the two driveways has killer protruding stone walls that are sure to damage the sides of your vehicle, as it did ours, - hundreds of dollars in damage actually, but in the end we did it, not the walls. We can't overly pick on this house's driveways, because as you'll find, almost all the other homes in these mountains have the same deal. Other attention items, the kitchen refrigerator had no working light in it and we had to grope for food in the dark. The secondary refrigerator in the hallway was much appreciated, but most of the shelves can't hold any weight and are broken. Lastly, the main floor family room area was absolutely wonderful with all the couches, but there was a huge colony of large black carpenter ants under the floor and if you sat in any couch near the windows long enough, one or more would crawl across your leg or up the back of your neck. We killed them by the hundreds, but they kept coming. Orkin did come out twice though, and I presume this situation has been handled now. Lastly, the internet signal was strong but spotty, and didn't work about 50% of the time. We had 2 doctors and 2 tech company workers in our group and we usually had to use other means to connect to our places of employment using the Internet, so the Internet was simply not reliable, but signal strength and bandwidth were good when it did work. Cell service is good anywhere in the house. In the end, the house and Gatlinburg National Park are beautiful treasures, however the towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge themselves are - and there's no way of saying it any other way - the schlockmeister capitals of the country - simply total low brow appalling tourist trap strips, and are examples of what happens when there aren't thoughtful zoning laws. Inexplicably, the traffic is ferocious and tedious as people all get funneled onto only one main road. In the end, don't come for the towns, but come for the cabin and the park - it's still worth the trip.
