I enjoyed every minute of my stay and had a blast! The lodge was perfect and I definitely plan on booking the trip again in the future!
Juan A.on 12/29/2017
Beautiful cabin and beautiful view. I’ll come back.
Mark T.on 11/18/2017
We had a wonderful time at The Cajun Hideaway. The views are beautiful and the cabin is somewhat secluded, so that was nice. However , the info says that the cabin sleeps six. There is a pullout couch in the loft, but it the mattress was very thin and uncomfortable. My oldest son ended up sleeping in the couch downstairs. I cannot imagine one person sleeping upstairs much less 2. Otherwise the cabin was well equipped and we had a wonderful time!
Courtney O.on 11/10/2017
My Husband and I stayed here for our first wedding anniversary. We stayed for the long Veterans Day weekend. The cabin was absolutely spotless when we arrived and the instructions to get there were clear and easy. It is nicely secluded from other cabins, quiet and private. The living room, game room and bedroom were perfect for what we were looking for. Kitchen utensils were well stocked for cooking a great breakfast. We went horseback riding and biking at Cades Cove. The outdoor hot tub overlooking the beautiful Mountain View was the best way to end the day. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.
David W.on 09/27/2017
It was Clean. However, if you like sleeping in a basement, in a bed that is soft and sinks toward the middle in a room with very small windows, if you like going up and down the stairway to your room or to hear the footsteps from the living room while you try to sleep, if you like close quarters to the other bedroom then this is the place for you.
Mia D.on 08/07/2017
The cabin was very well taken care of, very clean! The view was absolutely beautiful! Hot tub was clean and ready to use, cooking and cleaning supplies were available so we could shop for food. Not too far from city center so you're able to really get best of both worlds depending if you want the secluded cabin experience of see the heart of gatlinburg. Literally don't have one complaint.
Durai R.on 07/29/2017
It was a nice experience to stay on the Cajun Hideaway cabin, we all enjoyed the stay.
Kendra R.on 06/28/2017
We absolutely loved the Cajun Hideaway cabin and the view from the top deck was amazing! The pictures online were exactly what the inside of the cabin looked like which was nice. We had a great experience and will definitely be returning in the future!! Thanks for everything!
Kristi F.on 06/03/2017
Toilet was not secure to floor
Took dryer three cycles to fully dry one load
Hot Tub lights did not work
Bed was lumpy and uncomfotable
We were provided one garbage bag for a week long stay
Nicholas C.on 05/27/2017
This cabin is beautiful. Well lit, great view, perfectly located and private.I loved sitting on the front balcony and relaxing in the hot tub and looking out at the gorgeous view. We really loved the simplicity of the renting experience and how noninvasive it was. Fantastic family vacation!
Jana L.on 05/21/2017
We had a great stay at Cajun Hideaway- in fact, we extended our stay by one night because we were having such a great time. The location was perfect, with a breathtaking mountain view. The house was clean and very comfortable.
Kari T.on 04/24/2017
The view of the mountain is beautiful! The road to the cabin is a little steep, but you are in the mountains after all. Lol. The kitchen is lovely. The beds were firm, but comfortable. I loved the master bathroom! It was very clean and organized! I had an issue with one of the tv's. It was less than thirty minutes after I called maintenance that it was fixed. Great customer service! We can't wait to plan another trip!
Dena K.on 03/12/2017
It was great! Loved the cabin and everything about it
Aely N.on 03/02/2017
The cabin was beautiful! The views were amazing! We loved how close the cabin was to downtown. We would definitely love to go back.
Steven S.on 02/20/2017
The cabin was more than we could have wanted. It is obvious that the owners have pride for this cabin and have taken time to update. The outdoor speakers were an unexpected upgrade that we enjoyed while sitting on the porch or grilling dinner.
As with every Elk Springs cabin we have stayed in, it was super clean and welcoming. Checking in and out was very easy!
It is hard to find something wrong with this cabin but If I had to I would just mention the road to the cabin. If it had snowed there was no way we could have made it to the cabin. The road was very steep and narrow.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Steve G.on 01/18/2017
Lovely cabin, very cozy, lots of extras.
Furnished very nice, great Tv's and appliances!
Susan M.on 11/21/2016
View from cabin was beautiful. Children enjoyed renting a jeep and ATV. Cabin was very clean but did not have exterior working lights. Peaceful first time mountain experience.
James H.on 11/05/2016
Great cabin and great view. Wish there was a returnable damage deposit instead of damage waiver fee. Also too many fees: Administrative fee and service fee is a bit much especially when you are also paying for cleaning.
Administrative Fee $45.00 ?
Damage Waiver Fee $45.00 ?
Service Fee $43.11 ?
Christina M.on 10/29/2016
Love everything about this cabin and our mini vacation with my family. We didn't want to go back home . I wish we could stay longer. The cabin is beautiful and the view. Super clean and affordable! Would go back there over and over again. Worth every penny!
Amy C.on 10/14/2016
This was our 4th stay with Elk Springs since summer of 2014 (second time at Cajun Hideaway). We had wonderful stay and enjoyed the cabin/view. We appreciated the courtesy call from Elk Springs during our stay. We highly recommend this cabin!
Jasper E.on 10/07/2016
This is the second time we stayed in a cabin managed by Elk Springs Resort. Yes, we would absolutely have stayed longer than 4 nights if it were possible. Having stayed in two separate cabins on two different occasions, I can tell that they're spotless and well furnished with all the luxuries you'll come to expect from their cabins.
Honestly, I haven't stayed at a different resort, but why take your chances if you know Elk Springs Resort's cabins are consistently awesome? Seriously, why would you consider any other place?
Their customer service is fantastic and they make your check-in and check-out super easy. If you can receive a text message then you've checked in.
The views of Mount LeConte from the Cajun Hideaway upper deck and living space is as shown in the pictures. It's breathtakingly beautiful. I wish I could wake up every morning and be welcomed by this stunning view while enjoying my breakfast.
The last night we stayed, one of the smoke detectors started beeping, indicating a low battery. I made a call and left a message. Within the hour there was a property maintenance technician who quickly resolved the issue. The smoke detectors are hooked into the alarm system which means trying to mess with it yourself will result in a lot of noise and a call from ADT.
It doesn't matter what you're going to Gatlinburg for, a stay in a cabin maintained by Elk Springs Resorts is bound to leave you well rested, refreshed, and fully satisfied. They know exactly what they're doing and how to get their guests to return for more.
Enjoy your stay in Gatlinburg!
Amy S.on 09/02/2016
We had a wonderful experience during out stay at the Cajun Hideaway cabin. Everything was perfect, and the process of check in/out made things very simple for us. The cabin was impeccably clean and loaded with EVERYTHING we could need for a perfect stay! We will definitely be returning!
Debra D.on 08/28/2016
Cabin is beautiful with plenty of amenities. You are secluded with a wonderful view of the peaks of the Smokies. Two decks with plenty of seating to enjoy the peace and quiet while admiring the view. Hot tub was a little disappointing but the jacuzzi tub in master made up for it.
Barbara G.on 08/09/2016
If you are looking for the perfect place to get away from it all, yet still have all the conveniences of home....you've found the perfect place. This cabin has it all! With the included starter supply of laundry & dishwasher cleaner, paper towels, toilet tissue, soap, etc., there is little you need to bring from home! Just bring your belongings & food from the grocery store (6 miles away) and you're all set. If you are a coffee lover like me, bring your own coffee & some flat bottom filters & you're all set! The cabin is charming & so nicely decorated! I slept like a bear! Hint: if you want to sleep in...close the bathroom door in the master bedroom to cut back on the morning light you get from the frosted glass window and your room will stay completely dark for an extended rest! Of course, I couldn't write a review without mentioning the unbelievable view. My morning coffee view will never be the same!
Benjamin T.on 08/06/2016
We stayed in Cajun Hideaway for 3 nights during our honeymoon vacation. We loved it! We enjoyed it so much that we booked another 2 nights in a nearby cabin with the same company!
Harmon L.on 07/25/2016
Great cabin, wonderful views.
The drive way in and out can be a problem. People should be given a "caution" notice.
Thomas M.on 07/09/2016
It was a very pleasant experience. We want to return.
Christopher T.on 03/30/2016
Cajun Hideaway was a perfect location for our family. Our two boys (ages 4 and 1) completely enjoyed the ample space inside the cabin and on the balcony. The well stocked kitchen provided all our needs to cook our breakfasts/dinners. The location was great- beautiful views of the Smoky's, secluded feel in the mountains, close enough to the National Park and Gatlinburg. Nice layout (2 bedrooms on lowest floor, kitchen/living room on main floor, pool table in loft). We plan on returning.
Berrik B.on 01/24/2016
Great place for a quiet, relaxing honeymoon. The cabin was great. Wonderful view of the mountains from the back porches. Fairly secluded and private, yet close enough to highway and Gatlinburg for going out. The only drawback was that the road to the cabin is so narrow, winding, & steep. Although it was cleared of ice & snow, it still felt kind of dangerous since there's not guardrails and very steep dropoffs within inches of the edge of the road.
Jeffrey R.on 12/21/2015
Very beautiful cabin with large kitchen. We were a bit disappointed that other cabins were so close by. In the pictures you couldn't see other cabins, and it was supposed to be more private. It would be nice for them to update their listing and include that information. Other than that the cabin was very clean with a nice note explaining the ladybugs, which didn't bother us. The property management was very friendly when we spoke to them. Unfortunately our stay was 3 days shorter than we booked it for, because our house was robbed while we were gone, and we had to go back home to deal with it. We were told we may get a bit of a refund, but didn't. That part was disappointing, but what can you do? It's not their fault we were robbed, but the cabin was empty, clean from our departure, and they could have re-rented it.
Ashley K.on 10/25/2015
We stayed for our honeymoon and it was fantastic. Perfect time with the foliage changing colors! It's not too far from downtown Gatlinburg, and was easy to find with the directions given. All the kitchen supplies you could need to cook with. The only negative thing - which we did not report - was there was no propane tank for the grill. We would definitely stay there again, even for a friends vacation as there was enough room for more than 2 people. I recommend going hiking over going into downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The cabin was a nice way to relax after a long day out sight-seeing.
Betty W.on 09/10/2015
The view was spectacular. The hot tub was bubbly & relaxing especially after a day of hiking. The house was well maintained and clean. One suggestion - since we stayed 8 nights, it would have been nice to have the cleaning staff stop by once to straighten up & provide clean linens/towels. I did wash a load but felt with the number of days, one time of service would have been nice.
Also, BIG NOTE - the road to this location is VERY NARROW AND HAS MANY CURVES so if you have a large pick up truck/SUV, you may want to re-consider this location.
Samantha W.on 08/12/2015
Cajun Hideaway is exactly what I needed for a couple days. Will definitely be back.
Terry W.on 07/20/2015
Had a blast! I Would suggest that you don't drive a 2500 4 WD because the road is very narrow .
David D.on 06/15/2015
The cabin felt relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed the picture perfect mountain view every day in the rocking chairs! The pool table and the hot tub were big hits with our girls. And Elk Springs courtesy policy of another resorts outdoor pools, just a mile down the road, were considered hidden gems!
Eddie W.on 06/08/2015
Fantastic. Beautiful cabin and views. This is our 2nd time in cajun hideaway and it's been great both times.
Norm K.on 05/25/2015
Cabin was beautiful , view was amazing . Cabin is 15 minutes from downtown and in a private , secluded area. I would come back anytime !!! If I had to " search " for something to complain about - it would be the screens were ripped from bugs etc so I couldn't open up windows . And the cleaners didn't vacuum up the dead bugs when you lift the windows. Cabin was spotless other than this and very well upkept . I would put "Cajun Hideaway " in the category of luxury cAbin. I fully recommend elk springs resort , the area and any of there cabins.
Chris H.on 03/10/2015
Cajun Hideaway was all that we expected! The location is very good with a wonderful view. The cabin was clean as expected. The checkin and checkout process was really quite easy and we had no difficulties even with a rather late arrival time.
This unit is located on a circle drive along with several other cabins (managed by various companies). You can see a few other cabins from the deck, but they are far enough away to still feel rather remote and private.
We were planning to spend a lot of time as a family watching movies and playing games so the rain that we experienced didn't change those plans at all. The entertainment center equipment in Cajun Hideaway is top notch and we enjoyed lots of movies together with a view of the mountains right out of the window.
The kitchen is well stocked with all of the essential cooking gear and there is a gas grill out on the deck (but not on the covered part of the deck so it was a bit hard to grill in the rain).
The two bedrooms and main two baths are downstairs but there is a half bath just off of the living room.
The girls enjoyed the hot tub but it is on the lower deck where the view is a bit more restricted compared to the main deck.
The parking area is excellent and flat, but there is a rather steep drive up to the cabin.
We'll likely come back to Cajun Hideaway again rather than look for a new cabin. It was really top notch!
James S.on 02/23/2015
We enjoyed our three night stay in Cajun Hideaway.
The cabin was clean, furnished very well and everything worked as it should. We love coming to this area in February in hopes of seeing a little snow. It snowed all three nights we were there. On our day of departure the maintenance firm had our road plowed so we could get down the mountain safely.
The Elk Springs Resort management was very professional, check in and out was the easiest we have experienced.
Gerald P.on 02/19/2015
We experienced a power outage, snow & ice, delays on the cabin, frozen water lines, folks going off the road and blocking the passage to the cabin. For all the trouble, the folks at ElkSprings did everything in their power so we could have a fantastic time and we DID!!! We had military friends flying in from Texas. They had an amazing time at Cajun Hideaway. It was a truly great adventure and wonderful cabin. I had to give a 4 star on cleanliness only because the hot tub couldn't be cleaned due to frozen lines.
Christina K.on 02/01/2015
We had a wonderful time staying in Cajun Hideaway. This was our second time staying with Elk Springs. This cabin is farther out from town, but feels much more secluded than being right on the resort, and the views were amazing even on the dreariest of days - one day we were able to watch the snow accumulating on the mountaintops across the way. There are still a couple of cabins in site, but situated so you don't feel like you are on top of one another. I would agree with previous reviews; if you have never been there, it is definitely best to arrive in the daylight. The surround sound system was a nice touch. The only two negatives were that the hot tub is down on the lower floor and on the opposite end of the deck from the door (only a slight inconvenience making that walk (run) when it was 20 degrees outside). We wished there was a door closer to the grill. That was just being picky though and it was colder when we stayed. Probably wouldn't have thought much about it if we had stayed in the warmer months. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.
Beth C.on 10/24/2014
We loved the cabin, location, and especially the view!
Cindy H.on 09/14/2014
We had a wonderful time. The cabin was beautiful and the mountain views amazing. . The kitchen had everything we needed, hot tub was relaxing, and we really enjoyed the surround sound.
Michelle P.on 08/15/2014
If you want a view from your cabin, then no others will beat this one! All you see is the great mountains in front of you. Even when you are in the den/kitchen, you can see that great view. It was a great escape from reality.
Kyle W.on 08/07/2014
The cabin is everything you expect and more!
John T.on 07/27/2014
Michael G.on 07/12/2014
Words cant capture the Cajun Hideaway cabin. We were like little kids in a candy store. We spent the first 45 minutes running through the cabin in awe and appreciation. Then we stepped outside to the deck. All 4 of us - quiet- thrilled- overwhelmed- the Smokey Mountains! Thank you for a vacation experience we will never forget.
ruben l.on 06/05/2014
The place was more than expected.... you will like all the amenities and the view from the deck is amazing !!! we are already planning our next visit to Gatlinburg and staying at the facilities.
Michelle S.on 05/30/2014
The cabin was immaculate, location was amazing, we had a wonderful time just soaking in the views inside and out. We went ziplining at Climbworks less than 5 minutes from the cabin which was also amazing! So many things to do so close by made the trip memorable. very highly recommended!
Tom D.on 04/14/2014
Great cabin, private location. Excellent features - Hot tub, pool table, great space, nice views. Takes about 20 minutes to get into town, so better for folks looking for seclusion. Really enjoyed our stay and will be back.
Dwayne M.on 04/05/2014
This was my family's first trip to Gatlinburg and we could not have asked for a better location to stay. Beautiful setting and views, isolated enough from heavy tourist traffic but close enough to access the many day trip activities that Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains have to offer. Any support needs for the cabin (and we did not really have any) was a quick phone call away. Would highly recommend this cabin and Elk Springs Resort to anyone traveling in the Gatlinburg area.
Noora L.on 02/22/2014
This was our second time staying at an Elk Springs Resort cabin, and it was just as wonderful as the first. I have already recommended these cabins to all my friends, and plan to visit again! The pictures are a very accurate representation of what you get.
Paul R.on 02/13/2014
We were worried that with the snow coming in we wouldn't be able to make it to the cabin. Thankfully they had treated the road to the cabin & it was easy to get there. The view was absolutely amazing!! The cabin was spotless. You can tell it has been taken good care of. The bed was so comfortable! The kitchen has everything you would need or want for your stay! The jacuzzi & hot tub were the perfect touch & the fireplaces add to the romantic feel of the cabin. We will definitely stay here again & we can't wait until next time!!

Very quiet and relaxing, very nice cabin.
Brian H.on 11/27/2013
This was the First time The wife and I rented a cabin, been looking for bout 3-4 yrs. to rent one thanksgiving week. well we finely did it. and guess what it SNOWED that weekend. awesome. It really was breath taking. The Cabin was a real surprise. Not knowing what to really expect, booking something on the internet is kinda scary. My fears were put to rest. The Cabin Was awesome really a gem. The bed sleep well. . There were plenty of room For the Four of us. The View was amazing. We didn't use the amenities for we was in town most of the Day. But they were there. Pool Table, Hot Tub ( Nice an warm we checked )Videos need to be updated. We Will definitely be booking again with Elk Springs Resort. It Was a Wonderful Thanksgiving & Birthday weekend. Stop Procrastinating and go ahead an book with elk springs you'll Love It.
Joan M.on 11/23/2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My only complaint is the cleanliness of the unit. There was a lot of dust/hair behind the doors and on the mouldings. I had to clean some of it up. But that is about the only thing I can mention... we plan to make another reservation for April 2014.
The cabin was very clean with a great view. The kitchen was equiped with everything that we needed for several meals we prepared. We had a great time. They should take the outdoor fire pit off the website as they are prohibited. This is understandable after the fires in 2016. We just made our smores on the grill.
Truly enjoyed ourselves
We stayed with our 3 kids after our wedding. This cabin is so clean and has a beautiful view. I was very pleased with our property. Check out was very easy and it was close to downtown Gatlinburg. We hope to stay again!
The cabin was beautiful, clean, and so comfortable. It looked exactly like it did in the pictures except for a few upgrades to the guest room and loft televisions. The hot tub was clean and ready for use when we arrived. The fireplace was warm and added to the ambience of the cabin. If I didn’t have to get back home for work I would have extended my stay! We plan to bring the kids for Spring Break!!
Cold, beautiful, exciting, adventurous, awesome
Great stay in the Smoky Mountains! The view from the deck is well represented by the pictures and you are looking directly into the park. Overall the cabin met our expectations, the fireplaces, TV/surround sound were top notch and the kitchen has what you need to prepare basic meals (everything is functional, but not high end). We were disappointed that the outdoor firepit wasn't there. Cabin is about ~20 minutes from Gatlinburg and is a great location if you're looking for seclusion, but still want to be able to get into town. This is our second experience with Elks Springs management and both have been excellent, check-in/out is effortless.
Our family had a very good time there! The canbin is clean and cute! We will come back again! Thanks!
Nice and convenient
It's was amazing! Everything we envisioned! Absolutely perfect!
For the 3rd time, we booked Cajun Hideaway for our time of relaxation and reflection. What an awesome experience! Clean and cozy. Will be back next year. We love it!
Loved the cabin. About 20 min from down town Gatlinburg. Easy to get to. Only complaints were beds are very firm. We prefer softer ones. And hot tub wasn't hot enough. The jacuzzi tub in master bath made up for it. There are bear in neighborhood. One came in yard. Wasn't too concerned with us though. Over all had a great relaxing time!
Everything about this place is awesome! It looks exactly like the pictures that you see and also very clean. Great location for people who want to get away from everything but still good driving distance to great locations.
We were looking for a close 3 day family vacation and Gatlinburg fit the bill. We looked online at several properties and decided on CajUn Hideaway it sounded like it had everything we were looking for. The cabin was wonderful and the entertainment center with outdoor speakers was excellent. It was clean, private andining quiet. The location just little east of Gatlinburg was perfect as well. Our only disappointment was that in the photos it shows a fire pit that was not there s ok smores never happened but we love ed it anyway.
My husband and I are planning to visit again in the fall of 2018. Will rent a bigger cabin from Elk Springs and bring the kids. That says a lot about our experience. I was pleased with the service we received and the cabin met our expectations.
Relaxing and comfortable! Beautiful view and an overall awesome experience!
Simply clean, crisp and unforgettable!
The amenities were great. The bose speaker system was awesome. The tv and extras were great as well. The view was awesome but the rocking chairs outside need some attention. They were splintered and uncomfortable. The most disappointing part of our stay was the dirt, dust and bugs under both beds. As we were leaving, I went to pick up a toy that had gone under the bed and found an individual drink mix packet. This confirms that the beds were not moved after the last guest. This left me questioning the cleanliess of the beds and sheets. There were quite a few bugs that we killed during our stay. There was dust on the decorations in the stairwell. The exterior of the cabin had not been given any attention. There were beer cans, cigarettes and remnants of a fire pit. I certainly did not appreciate the envelope left for tips by the people that clean the cabin. Tipping should not be expected when you are not getting daily service. The cabin and the amnenties were great but the housekeeping was lacking and seriously devalued our stay.
Amazing place to stay!
Is a cliche, but still have to echo - only complaint - should have planned a longer stay
Our experience was amazing. The cabin was exactly as advertised, and the views were better than expected. The cabin was far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city to have silence but close enough that it was a quick car ride to Pigeon Forge and hiking in Gatlinburg. I would recommend this stay to anyone looking for a quick getaway from everyday life. Thank you Elk Springs for a great stay.
Beautiful clean and scenic
The cabin was beautiful and really only had one complaint. 4 out of our 6 guests had big bites on their body for days after our stay. We did not go hiking and are from different parts of the country, so the cabin is the only constant. 2 went to the DR and the doc said it was definitely bug bites- possibly chiggers or bed bugs. When we called the company after and alerted them of what happened they seemed not to care and said they would check it out and get back to us. Still haven't heard back from them. (3 weeks after). They did not offer any help financially or even an apology to those with bites. Would not stay with this company again.
My husband and I stayed at Cajun Hideaway for 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer! We love visiting The Smokies! We got married in Gatlinburg last year so returning this year to celebrate our 1 year anniversary was very special to us. This was the 2nd time we stayed at one of Elk Springs Resort's cabins and we were very pleased. The best part about this cabin was the view! It was so peaceful looking out the windows and gazing upon the mountains. The only "bad" thing about this cabin was that the hot tub was on the bottom floor and not on the main deck with the living room, kitchen, dining room, etc. This cabin is near other cabins, but is still private. Specifically, it is located off of highway 321 so it is near enough to Gatlinburg to be convenient, but far enough away that you don't have to worry about all the congestion and traffic. Lastly, the customer service at Elk Springs Resort is phenomenal as well! We accidentally left behind a Redbox movie and they said they would return it for us without any issue!
The cabin was in excellent condition and very clean! They provided everyday essentials like hand soap, dish soap, paper towels, cookware and was like home away from home. The view was breathtaking! Showers had great water pressure too. The only thing I would comment on is that we did not see sheets for the pullout sofa in the loft.
Beautiful, quiet, mountain neighborhood setting. About 15 minute drive into Gatlinburg, but right off route 321! Very convenient. 10 min from grocery and other needs. Cabins near by, but not on top of each other. We definitely recommend this and want to go back again! Beautiful log home, inside and out. We really felt like we had a "home away from home". My only caution is it's a steep road, with some hairpin turns up to cabin. Also tricky backing out of cabin driveway. So it's not for the unsure driver. But that wouldn't stop us from going back again. And honestly, any cabin you get, with a view, is gonna have this steep drive up. We just had to get used to it. If you prefer an easier, flat access road, you would not have this view!! It was incredible! Enjoyed all aspects of cabin. Beds were super comfy. Except the sofa bed in the loft. We piled up blankets and pillows for my daughter to sleep on. I had brought my own sheets, but it was all "top of the line" in the king and queen suites. Very nice sheets, towels, beds, furniture, showers, and you cannot beat this view! It's EXACTLY like they show it in the online pictures-both the cabin and the view. The other thing is that there was more soap, TP, and dishwasher stuff provided than we expected. Even coffee filters. This was all a pleasant surprise, as we expected little to none. We also had to call the maintenance number a couple times with a couple quick questions about the hot tub and the DVD player, and he was readily available and answered our questions very quickly. Very helpful! One last note, we drove around the main Elk Springs property and those cabins were much closer together! This cabin and the other ones at Bear Foot Mountain Resort, managed by Elk Springs, are in a much nicer location, in my opinion. More space between cabins, easier access off route 321, and better views!!
Excellent cabin site, very clean, excellent amenities and condition. Enjoyed the trip from start to finish. Great hikes, hot-tub, comfortable bed, unbeatable.
in a fantastic home you don't want to leave.
My husband, me, and another couple planned this trip last March! We girls had been counting the weeks!!! We were so excited! We left early on Nov. 2 with the guys following later. While we were eating lunch in Chattanooga, Tn....I recieved a call from Elk Springs informing me that due to an unexpected snow and power outage.....our cabin would not be ready. My heart sank... But the sweetest voice assured me that we would have a cabin and that she would emai, me directions to it. Michelle had made my day!!! She had reserved a 5 bedroom cabin....wow!!! We got into the car and headed to Gatlinburg...BUT BEFORE we arrived in Townsend.....Michelle called and said everything had worked out....our original cabin would be ready! Oh boy, we were thrilled and then I recieved another call....cannot remember her name but she was from Mississippi like us and knew where we were from! What wonderful people Elk Springs has!!!! Absolutely would recommend them to all and our cabin was marvelous!!! We stayed at Cajun Hideaway......everything was perfect!!! The four of us are planning another trip next year and are hoping another couple will come along!!! Just as soon as we know......I am emailing Elk Springs!!!!!
Very easy and pleasant booking. The cabin has a remote location which gives you a feel of privacy. You cannot beat the view. It's just breathtaking. Cabin was very spacious, clean and cozy. I would recommend the kitchen upgrade (however everything was working). We would definitely recommend this cabin.
Absolutely loved our stay there! It was exactly what we needed for a couple days! The cabin was very clean and had a great main floor layout that was open with serene views. Property management company was very helpful. Felt safe with the security doors. Just a heads up cell service is a little choppy and don't rely on GPS.
Beautiful cabin with a breathtaking view, clean, relaxing, comfortable. Getting out of the driveway was very tricky. We have 2 little kids, and it was hard to keep them inside the whole time when we were in the cabin because there was no area for them to run around outside the cabin, very steep everywhere. I would recommend this cabin to couples or families with adult children. Overall we had a nice vacation, the inside of the cabin exceeded our expectations.
The cabin itself was awesome. A few more dead ladybugs in the windows than we would have liked. And gatlinburg was a little too much of a tourist trap for us. Other than those couple of things it was enjoyable to just stay in the cabin.
My family and I had a wonderful time. We have full intensions on taking another trip.
The house was absolutely beautiful. The decorations were adorable and we felt very at home there. The view was beyond amazing. We had a great stay. However, there were a few issues. The hot tub stopped working after the first day, and the refrigerator also did not work. We called and they sent somebody out right away. The person that came by was a bit snotty and condescending when looking at the issues. They didn't even fix the fridge, just told us there was too much stuff in the fridge. They told us to put our beers in a cooler. That's what a fridge is for!! Also, the checkout time is 10am...really? Yes we stayed 2 nights, but we didn't even get a full 48 hours in the house.
This is a cute little cabin for a quiet get away. The only problem we had was the hot tub was not heating up like we though it should. I spoke to the managment company about it and they had a hot tub repairman out to the cabin within a couple hours and by the time we made it back from Gatlinburg that night, the hot tub was ready to be enjoyed.
