The cabin was great! The location cannot be beat! Best view that we have had in all the years coming to the mountains! Cabin was well-stocked and any service request was handle promptly and resolved! Would suggest some type of storage/closet in the lower double suite and the upper loft bedroom. Otherwise, we loved the cabin and enjoyed our stay. We will definitely reserve again next year! Thanks, Much!

Indeed a Paradise!

We left Smoky Mountain Memories Cabin with precious memories! It was all we expected and more – clean, cozy, comfortable, convenient, and central for us 4 siblings and our spouses, ages 70 – 82 from Alabama, Ontario, and Pennsylvania. After 7 years of not being all together, this was just the right place. The handicap facilities were excellent, the views from the deck were fantastic and the rustic cabin was beautiful! If the Lord blesses us with good health and lide, we’ll be back!

Spectacular Mountain Views!!

Our family had a wonderful stay at the cabin! It was nice, clean and secluded. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the decks admiring the spectacular views, listening to nature and even getting the occasional visit from a squirrel. If we return to the area, we will definitely consider staying here again!

Absolutely beautiful view!!!!

The cabin was perfect for our sibling vacation. There were 9 of us and we had plenty of room. The view was beautiful, even when it was cloudy. We enjoyed several games of pool, early mornings out on the deck and walking up the road. We didn’t have any hotpads for the stove, but when I called they were very good about bringing us some the next day and would have that night yet if we wanted them too. The cabin was clean. We didn’t have any trouble with the dish service. The wi-fi was a little slow, but our regular phone services worked with no problems. The pool table is getting worn, but it was still fun. We used the hot tub once, the gas grill worked well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The cabin was absolutely wonderful. The view was amazing. The pictures did it no justice. Was located near everything within 15-20 min drive. The drive up to the cabin was descent roads not narrow and to curvy like some. Would diffently recommend this for anyone in a large group. There is enough room for everyone to have there space. There were 5 adults and 6 teenagers with us. They loved the pool table and hot tub. Would diffently stay here again.

Cabin Rental

We rented to cabin for a family get-together, with a party of 12 adults. We found the cabin very clean and the view was incredible. There was plenty of sleeping accommodations and the beds were comfortable. The decks were great with lots of seating to enjoy the outdoors. We found the dining room table very hard to use as the benches are not made with “old” people in mind, would have been great for kids. The living area was adequate but no place to seat everyone just to sit and talk. Luckily we spent a lot of time shopping and at the shows. It was a fun time and we appreciate the use of your cabin.

Just a Note…

When we started renting cabins we had no rental agreement. As time passed and things happened the rental agreement got started and continues to grow. We make every effort to keep things as simple as possible. Unfortunately, some things need to be spelled out and so the rental agreement is necessary. There is no substitute for common sense. So even if something is not detailed here, if you have doubts, please give us a call. Thanks for understanding.

** Rental Agreements are subject to being updated at any time.**
(and almost certainly will have to be…)
