Great little cabin near Gatlinburg
Kevin M. from Matthews, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2017 Stayed at A Desire Fulfilled for 2 nights during the Winter Storm Helena. The cabin is a perfect size for our family of 4. We had stayed here for 2 nights the year previous and the kids were very keen to come back to the same cabin.The cabin is open and spacious and has two working fireplaces, one on each floor which quickly heat up the cabin - although the downstairs is noticeably cooler than upstairs as you would expect.The only criticism of the cabin i would have is that the carpet is starting to look quite shabby. We really noticed the difference from the year previous. It is looking quite discolored in places and is even threadbare in places in the master bedroom. We also wondered why there are no doormats, either at the front door or balcony. It means whenever we cam in from outside there is nowhere to wipe your feet and results in walking in snow, ice and mud every time - which i am sure does not help the state of the carpets.We really like Elk Springs Resort and i am sure we will be back - but i think we will try and check out a different cabin next time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your feedback, Kevin. I am very sorry about the condition of the carpets. We are currently working with our owners to get these replaced. We didn't realize the doormat was missing until you stated it in your review, so I have sent a request to maintenance to get one there immediately. I agree with you that it would help to have a place to wipe your feet upon entering the cabin. We love our repeat guests and want to let you know that we have over 100 cabins to choose from both on the resort and throughout the surrounding cities of Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Sevierville. We also offer cabins with swimming pools inside that your family would surely enjoy! When you are ready to book again, we would love to assist you in selecting the perfect cabin for your next stay.
Andrew N. from Madison, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2016 Very nice layout to the cabin. Well stocked and had everything we needed.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your kind words, Andrew! We are excited to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will make plans to come back and visit us often!
Garrett S. from Waynesboro, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 I really enjoyed my stay and would return in the future. I also enjoyed the amenities that came along with the cabin. Price is a little on the high side but was worth the expense.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your business and positive feedback, Garrett. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed a 5-star stay at Elk Springs Resort. Our prices are competitive with other local cabin rental agencies. Please consider the fact that you were in close proximity to downtown Gatlinburg, the Shops at the Glades and didn't have to drive up winding mountain roads to reach your cabin when taking costs into consideration. The resort property itself offers a safe atmosphere to enjoy a hike around the paved road throughout the property while enjoying the peacefulness of being away from the busy tourist areas. We look forward to having you back soon!
A guest from Saint Augustine, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2016 This cabin was very nice and exactly what we were looking for... It was in a good location to the activities and attractions. The cabin was clean when we arrived except the beds were not made yet. Shortly after we arrived someone came and made them which was after 4pm..There was some wear and tear in the master bedroom with a tear in the carpet. We also had some unexpected guests every evening you could hear some kind of critters (maybe mice) in the ceiling above the master bedroom. The first two nights it kept us up which was annoying but night three we could sleep through it. There was no evidence that they were coming in the cabin so we were not panicked about it. I would recommend this cabin to friends.. We loved visiting the Forbidden Caverns, Exotic petting zoo, Ripleys Aquarium and Dollywood. You definitely have to eat at Davy Crocketts and Dixie Stampede.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us, Tara! We are sorry you had an unwelcome guest during your stay. In most cases, this is from squirrels that have found their way onto the roof or into the attic. The guest that checked in after your departure reported hearing an animal as well. Our maintenance technician was sent out and thoroughly inspected the cabin. He did not find any evidence of any animals being in the cabin either. Any areas that may have been used as access points were sealed off and they were not heard again. The cabin was rechecked after they checked out, we still did not find any evidence of any animals having been in the cabin. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need our assistance during your stay. We are fully staffed and welcome the opportunity to take care of any issue that may arise. We take these matters seriously and will take any steps needed to ensure your cabin is pest free. We value your comfort and want each stay to be relaxing and carefree. We sincerely apologize for any discomfort experienced and hope you will consider staying with us again during your next trip to Gatlinburg.
A guest from Monon, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 Very nice cabin! Very beautiful inside! We loved the tower rain shower! Beautiful kitchen. Loved the tall ceilings and Windows. The majority of your time would be spent inside this cabin while there as there isn't much outside the cabin. There is a small private deck out back with a hot tub that we used. Not much of a view other than a few trees. The cabin is on a cul-de-sac with other cabins around but we barely realized they were there. It was quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed our stay.

A guest from Springfield, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2016 Very relaxing and nice quiet cabin would rent again
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with Elk Springs Resort. Please come back and visit again.
A guest from Brownsburg, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2016 We love going to the smoky mountains. Found this cabin on groupon and enjoyed our stay very much. The cabin itself is nice and very well cared for. One thing I will mention is that once you arrive, the staff is hard to get in touch with. We got there and there wasn't any chalk for the pool table and no channel list for the TV. We also needed extra towels. when we finally reached someone, a man showed up with chalk only. Also, the floorboards creak something awful as well as the doors to go outside. So if you have an early riser with you and a child that you would like to sleep in so you can have morning coffee, forget about it at this cabin. Other that that, we had a perfect vacation spot.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are excited to hear you enjoyed your stay with us, Steve!

A guest from Bristow, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2016 Absolutely wonderful visit! Private and quiet resort area. The cabin had everything we needed from games to kitchen supplies. We will be making another (longer) stay in the future!
A guest from Melbourne, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 Very relaxing and peaceful area. We received great customer service when we called regarding few maintenance issues. Everything was taken care of in a timely manner. We wished the cabin would have been a little cleaner upon arrival. The rain tower shower was amazing! We would be happy to visit again:)
A guest from Christiana, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2016 We loved our stay in A desire fulfilled. This was our first time staying in a cabin and we were pleasantly surprised. We definitely recommend staying at A Desire Fulfilled
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for trusting Elk Springs Resort with your first cabin experience. We are happy to hear you loved your stay. We appreciate your recommendation, that is the best compliment we can receive! We hope you will make plans to come back and visit with us again.
Joshua K. from Cloverport, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 Not at all what we expected. There is NO cell service at all, which is not on the website anywhere. It's a very little cabin, pool table room is so small you can't hardly play. It has bugs on the floor and bathtub. For the price it should have been ALOT cleaner and roomier. Pics on website very misleading. Don't waste your money. Not worth it !!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. The housekeeping supervisor has been made aware of your feedback regarding the cleanliness of the cabin, we can assure you it has been addressed. We can certainly understand your frustration with the lack of cell service and the bugs found in the cabin. The cell service varies depending on the carrier. Each of our cabins are professionally treated by our local pest control company. Even with monthly treatment, we are unable to stop all bugs from coming in. We sincerely apologize for your discomfort with these issues.
A guest from Valparaiso, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 Very enjoyable time with my girlfriend and kids and my son and his family. I'd come back again for a longer stay
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are excited to hear you and your family had such a wonderful time, Jeffrey! It sounds like great memories were made. We would love for you to come back and visit with us again! Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays. We hope to see you soon!
Shawna M. from Orlando, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 We got this cabin for a reasonable price from groupon. The cabin is two stories and for such a small space, it is laid out very well. Upon inspection, as I do anywhere that I stay, I pulled back the sheets on the master bed and found 3 hairs at the foot of the bed, on the fitted sheet. (I believe it was just an oversight from laundry.) I immediately pull the sheets to wash them and notice that the mattress cover had several hairs on it too. The rain tower shower was really cool, but it had 2 bulbs that didn't work and so it was really really dark. I finally decided to call Elk Springs and complain when I walked in the shower and found a Bobby pin laying on the floor of the shower! The kids went to try out the hot tub, and when we uncovered it, we noticed the it was dirty, but the filter had came off and was laying in the bottom of the hot tub. I called Elk Springs Resort and they sent 2 separate people out to take care of my issues. Along, with one follow up call to ensure the maintenance guy resolved my issue. So I'm not sure if it was just bad luck on my part, but I just wasn't overall satisfied. I'm not sure if I offended housekeeping, but when they came and were making the bed with the new sheet, they made the comment that the hair on the fitted sheet must have fell from the ceiling fan. Lol. The front desk was great to try and resolve my issues, so I would recommend them for customer service. But this particular cabin needs some attention. The trim and baseboards were very dusty. And the fake wood tree at the steps needs to be cleaned as well, it had clots of dust on it. I hate to give such a detailed and negative review, but I wished I had known the condition beforehand and I would have chose a different cabin with better up keep.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Shawna. We sincerely apologize for the issues that you encountered during your stay. We can assure you, this is not our standard. There is no excuse for the lack of cleanliness you encountered, we fell short. We are happy to hear that the issues were resolved quickly. Our goal is to provide clean, luxurious cabins that you will enjoy coming back to time and again. Your feedback has been passed on to the housekeeping supervisor, she will make sure that any housekeeping issues in this cabin are corrected. We appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We hope you will consider giving us another try during your next visit to Gatlinburg. We would love to have the opportunity to truly spoil you. Please come back and see us soon!
A guest from Stevensville, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2016 Our trip to the Great Smoky Mountains could not have been more perfect! From the weather to the many different activities for both the kids and the adults, we never ran out of things to do! The best part of the vacation, by far, was the time we spent reconnecting as a family in our beautiful cabin! It was the perfect size for our family, was clean and tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed! The kitchen was stocked with dishes, serving pieces, and even plastic ware for storing leftovers. The hot tub was clean, private, and in a perfect location on the deck. We loved everything about our cabin experience!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We pride ourselves in offering cabins with top-notch amenities that ensure hours of enjoyment, as well as memories that will last a lifetime.

Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review, Angela! We appreciate the opportunity to exceed your expectations.

Joshalind B. from Riverview, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 The cabin was absolutely beautiful, immaculately kept, and in a great location! We were able to have an amazing stay with all the comforts of home plus a few extra perks!
Don E. from Mandeville, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2016 Was a great, clean cabin with lots of space and in a great area. Pool/Foosball tables were in great shape, beds were nice. Only complaint would be the heating is not equalized (upstairs vs. downstairs). For example, bottom floor is comfortable, top floor is too hot, etc. Would definitely stay again and recommend.
Jacquelyn H. from Galloway, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2016 The property was even better than the pictures! It was beautiful and we had the option of being cozy or having our own space to relax. The cabin had a perfect privacy screen around the hot tub making us feel secluded and added to the romantic ambiance. The property was clean and while some areas could use an update (carpet in the master bedroom), overall, it was a beautiful property. During our stay it snowed almost a foot and the team at Elk Springs came by and shoveled the walkway, salted it and even shoveled around our vehicle. It was above and beyond our expectations of customer service. The check in was easy, we were able to go straight to the cabin and were texted our entry code. We would definitely recommend this property, and the resort to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Gatlinburg area. Couple of area notes: make the the trip to Cades Cove. It is nearby and worth the trip. We went and the road was shut down to cars (this is more common until March), so we walked a bit of it and it was like being in another world. We stopped at The Ship the first night since it was near the cabin and we wanted to grab some appetizers and something to sip. It was a very cute bar and the food was really very good. We were so enchanted that we even bought a t-shirt to commemorate our visit. We also visited the Smokey Mountain Brewery and did some shopping, although some shops were closed due to the season. All in all I would say we had an amazing time and would recommend the trip to friends and family.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your wonderful review! Thank you for bringing the master bedroom carpet to our attention. We are happy you enjoyed the cabin, as well as quite a few of our local attractions. If you are in the area during warmer weather, please return to Cades Cove. It is always worth the trip. We see bears and a lot of the local wildlife there often while visiting. We hope that you will consider choosing us for your next vacation as well.
Adena G. from Maplesville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2015 Perfect
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We appreciate your wonderful review!

Jennifer H. from Apollo Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2015 We had a great stay in our cabin in the woods. It snowed while we were there and the location of the cabin on the mountain wad ideal to enjoy the snow falling.
A guest from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Our family had a really great time. We loved that the code to get into the cabin was simply given to you by phone the day of check in, so no waiting, and the staff called the next day make sure we were happy with everything. The cabin was very clean and equipped with everything we needed to enjoy all our meals. The beds were super comfortable, and the shower was amazing!! Our kids loved the game tables and we all enjoyed sitting in the hot tub. Checking out was also very easy and quick. Would definitely stay here again!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the 5 star review Deborah!

Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the 5-star review Colin! It is our pleasure to provide you and your family with a luxury cabin getaway. It sounds like it was the perfect choice for some Smoky Mountain memory making.
Candice T. from Armada, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 We stayed for a week, we were very impressed overall with the cabin. Follow recommended guidelines as far as what to bring for longer stays. Would definitely return again!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you Candice. We send out several emails prior to your arrival advising you of what is provided and it is important to follow these guidelines like you stated. However, our resort property is located just a short driving distance to several of the local stores in the event you need to go out for any last-minute purchases. We are pleased that you were impressed with your cabin rental experience and hope you will be a returning guest year after year!
A guest from Bournemouth, Dorsett recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 We researched long and hard before we settled on Elk Springs and our cabin. We feel it has the perfect balance between privacy and location support. Close to everything you need with just a 10 minute drive for shopping and attractions you can really get away for a few days and relax.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thanks for the very nice review Andy. We are glad that the time and effort you spent researching and finding Elk Springs Resort was well worth it! We are always pleased to hear that we were able to make your vacation a memorable one.
A guest from Hendersonville, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 First off DO NOT book this cabin if it's two families. You WILL be very crowded. Second, the tv' weren't working properly in one of the bedrooms. Third, the pictures are very misleading. It's like a cabin that was cut in half vertically. The pictures make it appear much larger. Last, when we called to complain the first day there a supervisor was supposed to get back with us and never did. Also, this may of been our misunderstanding but there is no mountain view u less you go tomthentop of the road. The only view inThe back is woods. We were pretty disappointed. The other staff that did call was very kind and maintenance was there very quick. It is a beautiful cabinWill allot of luxuries for a couple or one family. It's just very misleading, photograph angels do wonders.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hello Kim, I am very sorry that you were not happy with your stay. All of our customer service staff is highly trained in dealing with guest issues. You did speak with a supervisor by phone to ask for maintenance to come over to show you how to light your gas grill and to pound a nail in on the steps for you. You never mentioned once in our conversation that you were unhappy. Also, our website pictures and description of this cabin do not imply or indicate a mountain view from this cabin, so I am very sorry that you expected that. We have many luxury cabins in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville areas that do offer mountain views, but this is not standard with every cabin.
it was an incredible experience especially for us city folks
A guest from Mason, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 This cabin was seriously tucked in but what a surprise it was!! my oh my! hot tub, waterfall shower, it was equipped with all the modern conveniences, We had a great time with family.
Jackie S. from Winter Park, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 We enjoyed our cabin and visit to Elks Springs. It was beautiful, secluded and nicely appointed. My only bit of advice for families with young children would be that bedrooms are located on bottom floor and you can literally hear every step above you when your kids awake before you and run upstairs, the rocking chair is especially torturous. It was all worth it, as we really had a lovely time and would come again- when our children are a bit older, that is. :)
Victor L. from Orange Park, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 I cannot say enough about how wonderful our vacation was. The response to issues was prompt and the cabin had great amenities. I would reccomend this vacation location to anyone seeking a restful getaway.
Chelsey S. from Simpsonville, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 We were very impressed with the cabin and the staff at Elk Springs! It exceeded far beyond our expectations. It was clean and spacious. The location was 20 mins to Gatlinburg and 15 mins to pigeon forge. We can't wait to go back! It was a weekend of great memories!
Jennifer C. from Huntsville, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 the experience was great except I had a couple problems with some of the the master bedroom the fireplace was blowing out cold air also in the master bedroom the jacuzzi tub was not working the jets were not working they did come out and replace our grill the hot tub the light was not coming on in the hot tub... but other than that the experience was great if I decide to come back hopefully all the amenities in the cabin works.
Carmen P. from London, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 We loved our first cabin. It was awesome. Perfect and the pictures did it justice. Our reservation was unfortunately mixed up...Always check your dates and we were switched to another cabin on the last night which was not nice at all. Not in the caliber of this one. The alarm would not stop going off, we had maintenance down twice. It really made a downer on our last night. Magic Moments is no where in the caliber of this one. I would avoid it at all costs.
Joseph E. from Russellville, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 We had a great time at the cabin. We took our 17 year old child and she brought a friend. They loved the hot tub, foosball, and pool table. We enjoyed all of those and the large shower. One day we just stayed in the cabin to enjoy it and the local area. One of the best things about the cabin was its location to the town.
John B. from Birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 Our family of 6 spent a long weekend at A Desire Fulfilled and had a fantastic time. The cabin was great, just as we had hoped. It was somewhat secluded, but not too far from Downtown Gatlinburg. The whole family had a great time.
A guest from Saint Louis, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 We were called early and allowed to check in. The check in process was simple and straightforward. We were pleased that the location was not downtown but close enough for a quick drive and very close to Smoky Mountain National Park. The cabin we stayed in was above and beyond our expectation. Everything was immaculate, clean, and well thought out. We LOVED the hot tub and the rain shower. WI-Fi worked well the entire time, although our phones did not get service downstairs in the cabin, only upstairs. That was fine with us as we wanted to go unplugged for a weekend! Kitchen was well stocked, bed were comfy, and everything was in tip top shape! Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
A guest from Jupiter, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014 A Desire Fulfilled was a beautiful place to stay. It was just far enough away from the downtown and very peaceful. The staff was wonderful and easy to reach at any time. I would recommend Elk Springs properties!
Tamar Y. from Alpharetta, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 I arrived to the resort at 12:15 AM following a road closed because of the snow - and a consequent detour that made my trip longer by an hour at least. I informed the front desk in the morning that we will arrive at night and was given my code. upon arrival, the code did not work. i have called front desk there was no answer. called sales - Dan said I should call front desk - there was no answer. and the massages I left were not replied. Dan called and tried to give me a diferent code - which did not work either, he tried to reach front desk. over-all it was 30 minutes that we waited outside the cabin, me being pregnant and needed to use the restroom after the long drive - which was not available to me, 2 kids uncomfortably asleep in the car. 30 min later I received a call with an entirely new code saying that although my frustration is understood the focus is for me to get in. I did not receive a call afterwards only a massage in the morning saying they heard my massage and wanted to make sure I got in. this was not at all what I expected from this high value cabin - truly dissapointing exwerience. I would not recommend it.
cynthia h. from hattiesburg, mississippi recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 cabin was great,getaway not so much! got back to cabin after Christmas parade,planned on romantic evening. Started with bath in jucuzzi ,only to find what appeared to be like dead skin floating in water. that killed the plan then carbon monoxide alarm kept beeping after downstairs fireplace went off and called Sevier County Utility district at almost 4am and they said to open all doors and they were sending someone out. Kevin got there about 5am checked everything out and it was fine,just the batteries needed replacement,which he did.He said I was correct in calling because you cant take a chance with a carbon monoxide alarm and just assume it is bad batteries! Needless to sat my husband was then very upset and wanted to leave immediately! I said no it was paid for and we were staying.We finally got to sleep around 630am slept until 1pm,husband still pissed went to eat dinner at a lousy restaurant in Pigeon Forge came back packed he went back to bed alone I stayed watched movies rest of the time until 5am Sunday morning packed and was out by 6am.Needless to say we didn't connect,haha!
A guest from Grapevine, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2014 My desire was fulfulled when I rented the cabin for a quiet relaxing vacation. I wanted to get back to nature, view the beautiful fall leaves and enjoy the outdoors. I was happy with my decision to rent this cabin and recommend it to others.
Marc S. from Fort Pierce, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 We were delighted with our cabin and the cleanliness of it. It was very clean and the hot tub was awesome. We could not have asked for anything better except a few more days. The property management company was very helpful and efficient in our booking and arrival. We would definitely stay here again.
Cathy S. from Palatine, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2014 The cabin was very clean and the management company and staff are excellent and very friendly. Our air conditioning went out and it was repaired within hours. The location was not right for us because we planned on hiking everyday and we felt we spent too much time driving back and forth so it is not very convenient if you want to take a break back at the cabin in the middle of the day. It's about a 40 minute round trip from the cabin to the main entrance of the park. The cabin is very private and if you are interested in the arts and crafts area this location is perfect for you. The seating is not very good for more than two people and only one person can stretch out and I would have preferred a larger master bedroom with more natural light because the bedroom is dark. The shower is great and the kitchen is beautiful and nicely appointed. The gravel road directly to the cabin was a PITA but thankfully a good part of the road is paved. I would have rated this property spotless and the carpeted areas may be clean but they are a bit worn and stained but overall it is a nice property and we really enjoyed our stay
James N. from Northbrook, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 We stayed at A Desire Fulfilled for a family of 4. It was a good size, the pictures make the cabin look larger. The rain shower is amazing and everything was clean and in good condition. View was just of trees but nice. Located next to a cabin next door and one across the way, but had a privacy screen for the hot tub. Tricky to navigate the windy roads but fun after you get used to it. Convenient location as we spent a lot of time in the Smoky Mtns, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Lots of driving, about half and hour to an hour to most places. Did not spend a lot of time in the cabin but it was nice to come back to soak in the hot tub at night and have privacy and all the amenities needed to relax and unwind after a long day of play.
A guest from Lincoln Park, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2014 Beautiful place, great vacation rental.I think it would deserve a newer hot tub. It's on a resort so expect to have other cabins around. For this one there is only one really near to it's right where they even had to block the view with some wood panels or they would be looking at you when you are using the hot tub.The only cons is that there is no view from the cabin (Desire Fulfilled)
A guest from Cameron, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 A truely wonderful experience!! My wife and I and our children all loved the cabin!! We wouldnt change a thing!! Thank You!!
A guest from Germantown, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 We visited for 4 nights for a family vacation. Disappointing view...was hoping for a mountain view. Did not like being on the gravel road. Rain Shower smelled musty, beds were getting worn out and bedding was poor quality/comfort. Sink in master did not drain well and their was no counter space in master for getting ready such as cosmetics. Kitchen was nice well equipped and the hot tub and foosball table an pool table were a plus.
Randal M. from Oak Ridge, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 From reservation to check-out, the experience was simple and quick. We were called at noon for a 3:00 pm check-in, providing us with our lock code and informing us the cabin was ready for us to occupy. Check out was simple, I told the cleaning crew who was at another cabin that we were leaving and they handled it. Cabin was exactly as presented. The bed in the master bedroom is very good, much better than is usually the case for a rental. The shower is incredible. Both bedrooms are downstairs, so if someone has difficulty with steps, this might not be a good layout for them. The TV in the master bedroom is small, but we never turned on any of the 3 sets anyway. Hottub was ready for our use. Elk Springs will certainly be our first contact the next time we are in the area.
Steve H. from Riverview, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 5's all the way around we were very please. If there was a down side it would have only been the guest room. With the queen size bunk beds there is barely room in there to get dressed. But since we did not have any other guest it did not affect us in any way.
Wade S. from Urbana, OH - Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 The cabin was beautiful and everything was clean. Two minor negatives, it was a little hard to find and the handle fell off the microwave. Neither of this had an effect on our trip. The bunk beds were large. The shower in the master was the best shower I've ever seen. The cabin, in general, was impeccable and a cabin I would gladly rent again.
A guest from Gainsville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 My husband and I stayed at one of the cabins for our honeymoon and loved every minute of it. The cabin was beautiful and looked exactly like the pictures online. We are already planning a trip back!
A guest from Brookfield, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 Check in was wonderful--got a call on my cell phone hours before check in saying it was ready early and giving me key code. Place was convenient to National Park, downtown, and decent grocery. Kids had a ball with fooseball, pool table, and our own hot tub. Shower a fun bonus! Only negative is the fireplace in master is a fake, but you have two other beautiful gas fireplaces, so it wasn't missed. Elksprings pricier than I would usually pay, but for all the extras, it was kind of worth it! Enjoyed living in my dream cabin for 4 nights very much!
Tom V. from Wilmington, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014 Not the fault of anyone, but there were termites in the bunk bed bedroom window area. Luckily we did not have guests, reported the problem and exterminator did a temp. job, however termites back before we left.I am sure that matter will be taken care of. We also found that there were no place mats or hot pads even though the table had a warning sign on it about marring the finish on the table, yet no protection except for a metal trivet that I found useless. Could have used some juice glasses,more ample dresser space for clothes, only 1 very small dresser in main bedroom.We stayed 6 nights. All of these can be improved very easily. We have stayed at Elk Springs resort 3 or 4 times and have always been completely satisfied with our cabins, the staff great. Again this is a beautiful cabin with many very nice amenities,but it needs some finishing touches for comfort, some books ,games and movies would also be a nice addition.We would not stay in this particular cabin again, but would choose another Elk Springs Cabin.
Stephen S. from Tampa, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2013 Disappointed I had to call maintenance to fix the fireplaces but he arrived quickly. Regulating heat was tricky. Overall pleased.
A guest from Decatur, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 This was not the cabin I originally booked but after a minor problem, we were moved to this cabin. It was very nice and clean. The rain gutter was coming a loose from the cabin but wasn't a problem for us. We like seclusion, and this cabin was not secluded (like the original cabin I booked). It was in a cluster of other cabins but we didn't have a problem with that either. I would return to stay again and I would recommend this cabin to someone else! Thanks, Elk Springs, for a great vacation!
Suzanne A. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Had a glorious time at this luxurious cabin which is why I couldn't understand why they use the cheapest paper products known to man!! I had a cold so I left there chapped and sore (if u know what I mean). Everything else in the cabin was so top notch (kitchen goods, furniture, decorations) that I just didn't get it. Please, spend a tad more on quality paper goods (u use less anyway since they are more absorbent!) and make this cabin stay a 10!!!
A guest from Pike Road, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 This cabin was so cozy and perfect for my husband and I to get away for the weekend. I'm already planning my next trip for a bigger cabin with more family!!
A guest from ARCADIA, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 Fabulous cabin with everything you need. Very clean and comfortable. Quiet location with shops and grocery a short drive away. Our family of 4 had lots of room to relax. We spent more time in the cabin than we would have a hotel. This is definitely the way to visit the Smokies!
Jeff T. from Gastonia, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 Nice place overall. Hot tub too hot for my taste (104). Large bedroom and shower were very comfortable. Will stay again someday. Sadly all parks were shutdown and we could explore the mtn.
Jaime G. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 It was my first experience to the mountains and I loved it. It was suppose to be just a getaway, but it felt like a honeymoon. Plenty of fishing and great restaurants. The resort was quiet and I didn't want to leave.
Jeff M. from Mason, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013 We had a wonderful weekend staying at the cabin. My only complaint (with a STRONG recommendation to fix) is that the DVD Player shelf in the 2nd bedroom (non-master) is right at head level with too little room to walk around. My older son hit his head twice and my wife once. It's a horrible location and an inevitable hazard. Other than that, we've raved about the cabin and it's amenities and cleanliness.
A guest from Orland Park, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013 Outside of some ants in kitchen, and wasp nest under hot tub and ice falling out of freezer it was beautiful , amazing and awesome. We loved it. we would recommend this wonderful experience.
Steve C. from Lafayette, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 This was our very first time visiting Gatlingburg.. The cabin was beautiful very clean and perfect size for all six of us.. We felt right at home... Will definitly be back:):)
A guest from Murphy, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2013 There's not a thing I would have changed. The cabin was perfect for our family of four. Looking forward to visiting again.
Amanda R. from Winnfield, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2013 I give everything a five. The cabin was beautiful. The location was great. Everything was very clean. Thanks for sharing your little bit of heaven with us.
Heather M. from Cantonment, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2013 This was our second stay at Elk Springs and we will definitely be back! We have stayed in 2 different cabins and both were excellent. The pictures you see are exactly what you get. There were no unwanted surprises. We love Elk Springs and can't wait to return!
Marcus M. from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2013 We stayed at "A Desire Fullfilled", and I must say it was lovely! We came up from Atlanta GA, and other than three different road closeures, the trip wasn't that bad (if coming from the Atl. area, DO NOT TAKE 441 through Cherokee. A landslide has the road closed for quite some time to come). Everything was perfect in the cabin, except no cell phone service (which could be a good or a bag thing depending on how detached u want to be from the outside world). The view was decent, lots of ice/snow covered trees and that's about it, but in all honestly, the view was not the selling point for us in choosing this cabin. The 19ft rain shower, on the other hand was, and it was amazing, it has been difficult going back to a normal shower after that! Overall the whole experience was great, we loved the openness of the cabin, the quite area on the mountainside was very peaceful, the hot tub was super relaxing and rejuvenating, the kitchen and grill was a wonderful bonus helping us stay in the cabin as much as possible, and the pool table was a nice way to pass the time. The strip in Gatlinburg was nice and the numerous little shops and restaurants had a little mountain town charm that was fun to experience. We would absolutely recommend Elks Spring Resort, and will be coming back in the future! What a wonderful weekend!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thanks again for the review! Our return customers receive a 10% discount.
Chris C. from Dahlonega, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 Overall great cabin, good location. Needs a little TLC on the cleaning, windows and base boards. Sitting area down stairs needs a few more places to sit. Good place to stay for the money.
Keith K. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 All aspect of the rental experience was handled very professionally. I drove directly to the cabin, at which point I called and obtained the key code. No waiting in check in lines.
David K. from Holly Springs, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 Our cabin location was ideal for us since we were not intereated in the congetion of Pigeon Forge. Elk Springs Resort contacted us for an early check in and followed up the next day to make sure we were happy. The cabin was spotless and absolutely georgous!
A guest from Old Hickory, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 Very sorry to say did not really enjoy staying in the foot hills of the mountain. Much prefer staying up high on the mountain when you get to see all the way out to the horizon. House was lovely but very alive and loud with kids...
Kim D. from Dickson, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2012 This was our first vacation with Elk Springs Resort. We travel to Gatlinburg,often, but this was our first time to stay with this resort. It was an amazing vacation. The cabin was beautiful. The staff was very easy to work with. Check in and out was a breeze. I would highly recommend them. I have already been referring friends and family there, since our arrival home. It was so wonderful, we hated to leave...
A guest from Clearwater, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2012 Great Cabin. The sofa bed needs replaced- the frame is bent, if you lay on one side you roll to the middle. Otherwise everything was great.
A guest from Cheyenne, WY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We really liked our stay in your rental cabin. The cabin and it's location were great. The only suggestions I would have are; be more specific with the driving instructions as even with your own driving instructions we ended up lost on our way in and have someone sweep the floor before guests arrive in the afternoon, the wood floors are beautiful, however, the knots mask dead bugs that may be on the floor, in this case it was dead wasps...now while it may sound just kind of gross, it also presents a danger as wasps sting even after they are dead. I stepped on one and spent our first night in the cabin in a great deal of pain. We had young children with us (our youngest still crawling) and it would have been horrible if one of them had gotten stung. We found 5+ wasps throughout the cabin. Otherwise our stay was fabulous!!
A guest from Columbia, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 Close to a perfect vacation!!Only that we expected to see the mountain view from our cabin window but there were only trees
A guest from Hendersonville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 Every thing was great! The only downfall to this cabin is the fold out couch matress is not very comfortable at all.
Craig N. from Lafayette, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 A Desire Fulfilled was a cozy and clean cabin but there were a couple things that could b improved upon. The spare bedroom offered little space, the TV's in both bedrooms were tiny, the grill being out front instead of on the deck was a hassel, and it was difficult to keep the temperature in the cabin where you wanted it. Don't get me wrong these were minor issues and they didn't keep us from enjoying our stay but it could've been better.
A guest from Frisco, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2012 It was the first time we ever booked a cabin and staying outside the standard chains. Was very skeptic with the cleanliness, location, security and hidden fees. Satisfied with all of these and the family had an excellent time.
A guest from Brighton, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2012 It would have been helpful to have someone from the resort meet with us and inform us of things to do. We had to figure things out ourselves and I was not ready for that. The cabin was nice but the tvs were small. I also would have liked to checked out at 12 instead of 10 am. I was pleased with the overall appearance of the cabiin but I would have liked to have had more interaction with the staff because I am fairly new to Gatlingburg.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Glad you enjoyed your stay. You can always call us via our toll free number and we would be happy to assist you with questions / recommendations. As a repeat visitor you do get 10% off all future stays.
Rosanne J. from Bradenton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2011 Our cabin was WONDERFUL!!! It was clean, spacious, beautiful. I have no complaints at all. The rental company made everything very easy. Even the hot tub was very clean. The fireplaces were wonderful. We loved the rain shower. Great place to go and we plan on returning.
Theodore M. from Dalton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2011 awsome shower in master bedroom, very clean, loved the welcome with wine glasses, clean hot tub, good furnishings, overall 5 star
A guest from Whitehouse, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2011 The only thing I saw wrong with the whole experience was that the comforters for the beds needed to be washed. Other than that the cabin and all amenities were amazing.
Ltanya C. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 My husband and I had a wonderful time spending our Anniversary at Elk Springs Resort. What you see on the website is exactly what you get! We can't wait to book another stay!!!
Josh C. from Canton, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 Well where to start? I was very excited to get away to the cabin for our anniversary. After trying the same rental property for the past few years I began to look for other luxury rentals in Gatlinburg and I came across Elk Springs. Once I found a desire fulfilled I linked over to trip advisor to look at reviews on the cabin its self. There were a few reviews on there that had me worried mainly about the location of the cabin to other cabins surrounding it. On there someone noted that there was absolutely no privacy on the back deck/hot tub area. Someone from Elk Springs followed up that review by saying that they had now built a privacy wall blocking the view from the other cabin. It was to my very dissapointed surprise when we arrived to find the cabin next door towering over ours and not a single set of blinds in sight (except for the ONE set downstairs). I walked to the back decked and noticed there was no privacy wall or fence built like the review had said. Needless to say I am very dissapointed and likely will not stay here again. The property was nice and clean and had a great layout but this all came with the sacrifice of privacy... something I was looking forward to for our get-away, and to bald face lie on the trip advisor review for a modification Elk Springs had not made chaps my arse too.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Josh, you are correct, the privacy wall was not in place durnig your stay. The initial wall we built was not to code, but we have remedied that issue. I do apologize and hope you will give us another shot.
Kyle O. from Greensburg, IN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 Website and person said it was secluded but it wasn't. Called day we got there and told them bout it. Internet didn't work either and was told maintenance wld be out. Was there for a week and never heard back from someone like we were told and maintenance never did show up. This was our honeymoon and we were very disappointed with the way we were treated. Very unprofessional to tell someone that you'll call them back and then not. Plus tell them maintenance would be out and then they never showed. We will never stay here again or refer anyone to here.
A guest from Taylor Mill, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 I would probably recommend this property because over all the cabins seemed to be nice and well kept. However, we had multiple problems in our cabin which did not make our stay as enjoyable as possible. First, it was nearly 90 degrees on the inside when we first got there and the land line did not work. We had to drive 10 minutes to make the call about the air conditioning. It was working when we returned later that evening but we still had no land line phone. The next day when we drove out to cell coverage we mentioned the phone again and had to get someone to come out and fix the gas grill which was not lighting. The phone worked for one night but the very next night it was down again along with the internet. We had to go to a neighbors house just to call to report it and were told it could not be fixed. Thank goodness we didn't have an emergency that night because we had no cell service and no land line. It would have been nice to have been given a credit for our nights of inconvenience but none was offered even after we asked. Maybe this was just an "off" week at this particular cabin, but there sure seemed to be a lot of problems.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals HI Deb, we're sorry for the problems. We did go ahead and fix the phone, there was a problem with the line that bell south had to fix. We've also verified that the air conditioning is working correctly.
Shailender P. from Lawrenceville, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 We did not have access to Internet and we have complained during the stay.The person who came to help did not really know what the problem was.Accessing internet was very important to me during my holiday [work related] and I felt severly handicapped because of the lack of was clearly advertised on your web site that here is WIFI access.I had felt you should compensate me in some way, because it did spoil my vacation plans.Added to this there is no telephone access either by land line or thru cell connection.
A guest from Plano, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 One item of feedback is to put the right size pillowcases on the king-size pillows. Our pillowcases were for a full size bed and didn't fit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Dwa, sorry about that with the pillows. We ran into an inventory problem with your linens. Glad you were able to enjoy your stay despite this, it's such a great cabin, isn't it?
A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2011 The cabin that we stayed at was spectacular. It really had everything and the best part was the lower level theater room with pool table. The kids especially enjoyed this room. We had originally booked a different cabin and when we arrived we realized that we needed more space. The management at Elk Springs Resort were very accommodating and found us a bigger cabin for the same price. They were helpful and wanted to make sure that we were satisfied. We have never experienced this kind of service from a rental company. We will definitely rent here again and recommend this resort to friends.
A guest from Springhill, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2011 The cabins were clean, and in good order. Some of the faux brick was breaking off on the back porch the cabins were not as secluded as i expected. There were cabins right beside us and across from us. DO NOT BRING MANY CLOTHES, the closets are very small for families. The area was nice everything in the cabin worked well. The people were friendly. I did enjoy my stay, I just think being with a family it was a little more cramp than expected.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Chris, thanks for the feedback. This is a 2 bedroom cabin and it is best suited for 2 couples or a couple with 2-4 kids. If you do want to bring more people or more adults and can feel a little crowded.
The road in the property is terrible... It needs paving.
John F. from Birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals John, thank you for your comments. We did regrade the road as it did get a little sloppy. We regrade it 2-3 times per year and it shouldn't be a problem going forward. Glad you enjoyed your stay!
A guest from Martin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2011 This cabin was absolutely Amazing. All the features (pool table, foosball, hot tub) where in great comdition, and proved to be a blast! Also, the rain shower...wow! All in all it was incredible from the moment you step in to the moment you leave!
A guest from Berea, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010 I enjoyed staying here, I just felt that for the price the TVs could have been bigger and the sheets of better quality. Other than that, all the amenities of home plus the luxury of being in the mountains.
A guest from Boutte, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 Only complaint is the cabin next door if it would of been booked they could spy on our hot tub, I found dirty sheets from people before us in the washer, and dead bug stuck to inside of window
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We've added a privacy fence to this cabin, so it should no longer be an issue.
A guest from Springfield, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 I really enjoyed my stay and the only change I would make is to get a cabin closer to the main road. Going towards the end of the cabins the roads were gravel and very difficult to travel and walk on, especially with motorcycles. However the staff was great and they had an excellent security staff.
Richard K. from West Bend, WI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 Our children enjoyed the pool table and hot tub the most. It's been 20yrs since my wife has been in the Smoky Mountain area and they are still beautiful!! and the cabin was wonderful. The master bedroom was romatic with the fieplace. My wife's favorite was the rain shower. Bonus. Made for a great family week dispite the very hot temps.Would for sure recommend to anyone. Perfict for family of 4
A guest from Burlison, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 We had a blast at our cabin. The only problem that we had was that there were quite a few spiders and centipedes. With a little pest control it would be perfect! Thanks!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thanks for the review. If you have issues, please call the office and we can dispatch maintenance to address these.thanks!
A guest from Floyds Knobs, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2010 We were very impressed with our stay. We were a little surprised at how close the other cabins were in location to ours; however we left very pleased.
Jacob B. from Amarillo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2010 I would recommend Elk Springs to anyone. There was a mix-up on our reservation Friday night and the staff could not have been more helpful and courteous. The cabins are absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained. I travel incessantly for work so I'm pretty picky, but Elk Springs definitely out performed my expectations. One note on A Desire Fulfilled - fabulous cabin but don't expect any privacy in the hot tub on the deck. Enjoy!!!
A guest from Louisville, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 The cabin was everything that was advertised. We wish that we'd taken a high chair for our toddler as there were none available. Overall a fantastic place to stay at the moment.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals There is a local company that you can use to rent cribs, high chairs and other items. Please contact our office prior to your check in and we can assist in getting these items for you.
Nguyet A. from Mason, OH. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2010 We had a great time at the Desired Fullfilled cabin. However, would have loved a better view outside...not very scenic. Also, the pull out bed was not very comfortable.
Richard A. from Roanoke, Virginia recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2010 The privacy was terrible.............and the windows and hot tub were in position of the cabin right next door the at was just wrong, not even a blind to close where you really needed it. there was a fair amount of beer bottles and cans off the rear deck area that should have been cleaned up long before our stay, over all its a great concept just needs a little tweaking.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Richard, we installed a privacy fence at this cabin and some additional blinds. thank you for your comments! Guest comments are always helpful.
Kendrea J. from Wiley, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 While I would recommend this property to a friend, I would caution them to arrive before night. GPS and mapquest will not help you in finding the resort as it sits at the very top of the "hill/mountain." It was very new and clean and the amenties were more than enough to satisfy. Oh yes and word to the wise if heigts are a fear of yours ask for the cabins that sit at the bottom of the hill. lol
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the feedback. We do email directions to all users and the time of booking, at the time of full payment and then 3 days prior to check in. We recommend using these directions as they are very specific to avoid travel issues. The directions to the property are fairly easy, even at night, if you have the ones that we email to you. thanks again for staying with us and look forward to seeing you on a future stay!
Stephanie R. from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 It wasn't awful. We were cooking for 8 people 2 nights. There are no sponges, just washcloths to clean pans with, which got difficult. Also, it was impossible to clean the stove top because there were no cleaning supplies. Even a tiny bottle of cleaner would work, but we couldn't get some of the burnt food off the stove. The kitchen has pots and pans. When we arrived some of the pans had food still on them from previous guests. Not really Elk Springs' fault. But in order to cook for 8 people we had trouble because of the lack of deep pans or large mixing bowls. Again, it wasn't awful, we just struggled finding a way to cook/bake with the bowls we had there. I'm sure they don't expect many people like us to do that much cooking. But if you do, you might want to bring along some of your own bowls and pans just in case.
Benea D. from Richmond, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 I loved everything out our cabin. This is our second time staying with Elk Springs, and I would never chose another location. I have told all my family about our trip, and pushed them to experience this great place! I am so thankful to find such an amazing cabin.
A guest from Columbus, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2010 This was one of the best vacations I have ever had and I have been many places. The cabin was very comfortable. The property security met us and walked throught the cabin to show us everything and how the fire places worked as well as the shower, hot tub, grill and much more. I plan to visit this location again very soon!
Kim B. from Johnson City, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2009 First time staying in a cabin in Gatlinburg had a wonderful time. We stayed in a Desire Fulfilled and the cabin was absolutely fantastic! It was very clean and well stocked in the kitchen which was important as we stayed in and fixed out meals there. Enjoyed the pool table and all other ammenities including the grill. Can't say enought about the rainfall shower Took more showers than I'm sure were necessary to use it Soooo Relaxing. Hot tub was clean and warm loved sitting out there on snowy night. Only complaint is the closeness to the other cabin did not make for much privacy when out enjoying the balcony and tub. One of the best 3 days loved it would definetly stay there again!!! Recommend Highly.
Lisa H. from Dexter, MO does not recommend this property. Stayed for 1 days in December, 2009
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Lisa, your review is inconsistent with our conversation we had via email and over the phone. You mentioned that the cabin was clean, well laid out and very very nice; however, it was not roomy enough for the 8 adults in your party. Typically a 2 bedroom is not big enough for 8 adults. As such to keep you happy we refunded your stay. It's not fair to give us such a poor review when we refunded you for your stay and given your stated satisfaction with the cleanilness and condition of the cabin.
Scot N. from Lafayette, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2009 We had a wonderful vacation at the Elks Spring Resort-A Desire Fulfilled cabin! Everything was wonderful, and we definitely look forward to going back.
LUDOVIC D. from ATLANTA, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2009 a very nice place , everything was there to have a good time . we plan to go back as soon as possible ! the only thing : no connection with any cell ... overwise it was perfect !!!
Julie C. from Edinboro, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2009 Beautiful is the best way to describe Elk Springs Resort. The cabin was lovely, the scenery was gorgeous! We were a little concerned about what the property would be like after driving by some others, but Elk Springs was indeed the best we saw! We will be planning on returning again! WE have already recommended it to friends for their family reunion!
A guest from Greencastle, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2009 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin, it was a wonderful time and we would love to come back. We were a little disappointed at the cleanliness of the cabin - there were numerous dishes and bowls that were dirty, and there were a few lightbulbs out throughout the cabin. Also, it was frustrating that the office was not staffed when we arrived, and housekeeping was difficult to get a hold of. Plan on housekeeping to get back to you a day later.Overall, we had a great time and would love to come back to the resort - all of the cabins are beautiful and are well worth spending your time there.
A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2009 I really enjoyed my stay at a Desire Fulfilled in the Elk Springs Resort. Everything was very clean and in great condition. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the lack of a view. Our view was just the forest but it was still nice.
Afterthought became one of the most pleasant experiences of the Summer.
Jennifer B. from Moncjs Corner, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2009 I am extremely picky about where I stay and I can be very uncomfortable if things are not spotless. I must say when we walked into our cabin I was VERY proud to say that this was MY idea. I didn't even bring groceries because I normally can not eat in a rental if things are not perfect. I must say because we arrived so late on Friday night, I got up very early and went to the grocery store so that I could make a mountain breakfast for everyone....
Julie K. from Venice, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2009 We enjoyed our stay. I think it could be improved by: having mattress pads, pillow covers, and pillow cases that fit the pillows. We did have several bugs in the cabin including spiders, worms, and beetles. Also the water in the master bath sink really didn't drain well. The pans were in very poor condition. My children's feet were always black after walking barefoot throughout the house, so I think the floors could be cleaned more often.Otherwise the cabin was very nice and the setting was gorgeous. We did not notify the management, because after all this is a vacation rental.
A guest from Collierville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2009 The electronic lock died and we were locked out. The fireplaces didn't work on auto and the jacuzzi was broke not to mention the master toilet was not secured to the ground.
Dawn K. from Olney, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2009 This was our first "family" vacation. The boys 9 & 12 had a blast. Did a lot of tourist stuff and the cabin was perfect. We were all very excited to see bear prints in the mud outside the cabin...I guess you could say excited, maybe nervous is a good word too. Never did see the bear but the cabin next to us got the pleasure.
mark w. from Georgetown, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2009 Have had many stays in Gatlinbury , this is by far the nicest cabin rentail I have ever stayed in. Beutiful,clean and all around super nice. Have told all my friends and family if you go to Gatlinburg you have to stay at Elk Springs
A guest from Levering, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2009 Our stay was everything we hoped it would be. The cabin and location were beautiful! The only suggestion we would make would be to find a better way to store trash. The bears on the porch getting into the trash was a bit too close to nature for us.
Property Manager Response:
Hi Angela, thank you for the review. We have scheduled daily trash removal to remedy this. We appreciate you staying with us!
Nicki R. from Nolensville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2009 This was our 3rd visit to Elk Springs Resort within 6 months. We love it there! The cabins are brand new and are very modern. The cabin we stayed in this time, A Desire Fulfilled, was breathtaking with its floor to ceiling 2-story windows. The staff, especially Andy, is always very friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back! The only negative was that the outlets in both bathrooms didn't work. Being a newer resort, we understand that they are still trying to get all the little kinks worked out. Overall, a wonderful place to stay!
A guest from Madison, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2009 Overall the cabin was very nice. It had games my kids could play and was upkept and clean. My only complaint was that I did not use the 18ft shower because it had a fowl odor that seemed to be coming from the drain.
Thomas H. from Menroe, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2009 Upon arrival we found the cabin in wonderful condition it was very clean, things were in order and the cabin was very well kept. The location was perfect and the cabin it's self and the view were just beautiful. The cabin was just as nice as the pictures on the internet made it out to be. We had a wonderful weekend that I would gladly repeat. I would stay here or at any other of Elk springs cabins. The only thing that was frustrating was the help at the check in office. It was a young man, he was a nice young man and friendly but gave very poor directions on how to get up to the cabin. But after we found it, our weekend was great!
Anthony G. from Hutto, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2009 First of all let me say that the property is in a great setting and absolutely gorgeous online and in person.But the service from the management company is horrid.I will start with the check in process. I received a phone message from a receptionist 2 hours prior to check in time telling me to call back to receive a door code. I was given 2 numbers to call back. I left 2 messages on one of the numbers and the others mailbox was full.Two hours later and repeated calls to these numbers I finally raised a young man who told me that the flu had caused someone to miss work and obtained a key code. Once arriving at the cabin we found that out of 8 remote controls only 1 had batteries installed. The XBox 360 is nice but bring your own games and batteries for these controllers as well.We did try to call the maintenance number (the one with the full mailbox) to tell them of these issues but could not leave a message. Stopped by the check in office three times during the week during posted hours and never found it open. Like I stated earlier these are very nice cabins. Just remember buyer beware when it comes to service.
A guest from Roanoke, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2009 Beautiful place and so relaxing. We highly reccommend the in-cabin massages....heavenly! We hope to make it back next year...or maybe this summer :-)
Tina D. from Fairview, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2009 By chance we found Elk Springs Resort online and we are so glad we did! We have stayed there 2 times in 6 months and were very satisfied with each cabin. Every cabin is amazing and fully loaded with all and more than you would expect. The location is perfect. Reservation and on site staff are always very nice. The cabins are CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! We will continue to be returning guests at Elk Springs Resort.
Eric Z. from Peotone, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2009 The cabin was amazing. The pictures made it look spacious and roomy, but it was perfect and cozy for 2-4 people. The kitchen amenities were just like home, along with the laundry machines downstairs.
A guest from Cleveland, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2009 Elk springs was a wonoderful retreat. I will recommend it in the future, getting to do all the check in and check out over the phone was fast and pleasant
Lucy V. from Stone Mountain, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2008 We have booked cabin rentals in the smokey mountains for more than 17 years. This was by far the best experience. We were given the best service from the point of booking to departure. We will definitely book here next year. See you then!
