Rascals Retreat review for Xmas 2016
A guest from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2016 Rascals retreat was a great place to enjoy the Christmas holiday. It was comfortable, warm and in a lovely area. It was heartbreaking to.see the fire devastation in Gatlinburg though.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your kind feedback, Melissa. We are so grateful that our beautiful resort and surrounding properties were unharmed by the wildfires. The best way to help out our area is to continue visiting the local restaurants and attractions. The majority of downtown Gatlinburg escaped the wrath of the wildfires as well. Thank you for spending the holidays with us. When you are reading to book your next stay, be sure to mention that you have stayed with us before and you will receive a 10% discount!
John G. from Tompkinsville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2016 we came in on Sunday the 27th of November got to go straight to our cabin which was very nice and helpful. We had been keeping up with the fire's in Gatlinburg but never expected them to blow up and get as big or as many spread out like they did.We left on the 28th to go back home we have been to the smokies many times in the past and will look forward to coming back and visiting again and we will book with Elk Springs when we do. Our hearts go out to the people that have lost lives and homes.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you, John! We are thankful all of our guests were safely evacuated during the fires. We are sorry your vacation was cut short. No one expected the fires to spread as quickly as they did. We are happy to hear you plan on returning to our area. We are very fortunate, all of the attractions are open for business and we are able to welcome our beloved guests back to enjoy the beauty of our area. We are a strong community and have seen first hand how well loved our Great Smoky Mountains are. We thank you for your support and look forward to your next visit!
Sun Moon K. from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 Cabin was just as described, if not better than what was depicted in the pictures. Staff made multiple calls before check out and throughout our stay to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness of the gas grille. Only suggestion would be is to upgrade the bed mattresses (memory foam topper wasn't doing the job) and to do a thourough dust removal in the property.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We love to hear your wonderful feedback! We are happy you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. We have shared your feedback with our housekeeping department, thank you. We hope you will make plans to come back and visit us often.

A guest from Waterville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016 We took our 2 boys, 3 year old and 1.5 year old down to enjoy the national park. The cabin was perfect for our family and the boys enjoyed the big hill outside our door. The location to the park and Gaitlinburg was convenient. We enjoyed going downtown for Christmas lights, the aquarium and sky lift. We also enjoyed 4 hikes in the national park as well as visits to the local public parks with playgrounds.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for allowing is to be a part of such a special family vacation! It sounds like many wonderful memories were made. We are happy to hear you were able to enjoy so many of our local activities. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will consider making Elk Springs Resort part of a new family tradition.
A guest from Memphis, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 We loved this cabin- We enjoyed the fireplace and the hottub. Plus, we were able to bring our dog. However, the furniture was so old that you would "sink" into the furniture and it was so uncomfortable that it made me not want to come back after being out for the day.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Marvin. We value your feedback as it helps us to ensure each stay with us is exceptional. We have forwarded your feedback regarding the furniture with the appropriate department.

Quiet, Scenic, A True Luxury Experience in the Mountains
A guest from Park Forest, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016 My family of 4 stayed in Rascals Retreat. The cabin was clean, neat and beautifully furnished. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The resort is quiet and scenic. Although we spotted a family of bears twice on the property, we had no encounters that made us fearful about being at Elk Springs. We left feeling relaxed and recharged - the purpose of any Vacay. We will be back soon. We are already looking forward to our next stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful family vacation, Mykael! We are happy to hear you had the opportunity to see some of our local wildlife. It is always a treat to see bears in our area, at a safe distance of course. We hope you will consider making Elk Springs Resort part of a new tradition when visiting Gatlinburg. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays. We hope to see you soon!

Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review! We love to hear that you had such a wonderful stay. We hope you will make plans to come back and visit us again soon!
Krinessa P. from Burtonsville, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016 The cabin was exactly like the photos. Impeccably maintained and had an extremely cozy, warm and welcoming feeling throughout. I am definitely coming back to stay at Elk Springs and have told many friends about it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals You certainly chose the perfect cabin, Krinessa!

We would consider it an honor for you to come back and stay with us again. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays. Hurry back, your next adventure awaits!
Jim H. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2016 A beautiful home in the woods...very relaxing and quiet area. We loved our stay. The only feedback I would give is that there were a few light bulbs burned out and the blender did not work. We called for a replacement but they never replaced it. Also, there was a mixer, but no beaters for the mixer.
Deborah W. from Mansfield, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 The cabins were beautiful we actually stayed at two because we wanted to stay an extra night! Both were spotless. The property was very well maintained and nestled in the woods. Very quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. From the hot tub on the decks to the relaxing views! We played pool and enjoyed the games provided! The staff called and checked on us both times. Highly reccomend!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your kind review, Deborah. We are delighted to hear that not only one, but two cabins exceeded your expectations. We hope you will consider making Elk Springs Resort part of a new tradition when visiting our beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. Hurry back, your next adventure awaits!
Patricia W. from Mt. Airy, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 The cabin was very clean and updated. Beds were clean and comfortable. Location was perfect for our touring plans. We had an exceptional stay at Elk Springs and hope to come back soon. We would definitely rent Rascals Retreat again. Just perfect in every way! Thank you!
Sue M. from Ann Arbor, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 Short stay, enjoyed our time in the cabin. Very clean with all the necessary items for an enjoyable stay. Worked great with our pets and children. A better view would have made it perfect, but very convenient to many activities.
A guest from Valparaiso, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Well for one we got there and there were bats on the deck and they were pooping all over it so I called no one came out and no broom to clean so bought a broom to clean everyday or you couldn't walk out there to hot tub. And poop on ledge of window looking out from loft. Two: the place was not very clean the dust on plants and fans were horrible, three : the lint dryer never been cleaned out in forever can cause a fire, pool table was in too small of place you couldn't really play unless you angle your stick up walls and windows in way. Four: they never mowed the area for dogs to go but mowed everywhere else how can kids play in that grassy area if grass is to long. No hangers in closet to hang clothes had to buy our own too. I will say pictures are accurate but loft area really smaller than pictures. Good for four people comfortably but needs plants clean or just take them out
A guest from Mc Connellsburg, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2016 we walked in to the cabin and loved the look of it. But were not expecting for the whole blind to fall to the floor the first itme we open it or for all the blinds to be full of dust you could write on. We had stains on the pillow cases that were left for the couch sleeper and food left in a bowl in the pantry no in a bag or box right in the bowl. The neighbors were loud many of the nights and we even could hear them inside with the doors closed. There were bugs in both sinks. For a pet friendly cabin there sure wasnt a place for our dog to play and we walked him on the road. The beds were very comfortable to sleep in. My husband loved the pool table. Wish there would have been an outside table and chairs to eat. Very dusty old plastic plants didnt help with sneezing. great that you had all things to work in the kitchen if we would have wanted to cook.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Debbie. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us.

A guest from Evanston, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2016 Cabin looks exactly as it shows in the picture. It overlooks an meadow that is lined with trees and provides a nice backdrop. I little upset to find out that the fireplaces are shut off after May 1st. We also had a very noisy neighbor the first night, but the management company responded quickly to their loud behavior.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We understand that you come to our area to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We want you to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains, without having to listen to noisy neighbors. We are always happy to step in and assist you should this occur. We apologize that you were not aware the fireplaces are seasonal. They are operational from October 1st- April 1st. Unfortunately, we are not able to operate them throughout the warmer months. They put too much of a strain on the air conditioning systems. Some of our cabins are equipped with electric fireplaces. They do not provide heat, so they are operational throughout the summer months as well. This may be an option if you will be visiting while the standard fireplaces are turned off. We would recommend contacting one of our experienced sales representatives when you are ready to start planning your next get-away. They will be happy to assist you with choosing the perfect cabin that will provide you with all of the amenities you are looking for. We hope to see you soon!
Stephen F. from Loveland, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 Awesome rental with friendly and helpful staff, the cabin was everything we expected and more. I would recommend elk springs to anyone who is planning a gatlinburg stay

A guest from Warrior, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2016 When we go there we automatically noticed a few things. 1. The back door was left unlocked.2. There was trash/dirt swept into a pile by the stairs.3. There was not batteries in some of the remotes.4. There was a load of towels in the dryer.5. There were bat droppings all over the back porch.Me and my husband were there for our honeymoon and I ended up getting a HORRIBLE, painful rash because of the high level of bacteria in the hot tub, I was only in for 10-15 minutes. We will not be using this resort again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Julie. Our housekeeping standards are set high here at Elk Springs Resort. Even with the strictest policies in place, from time to time, we fall short. This was one of those exceptions. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We can assure you, the housekeeping supervisor has been made aware, and the necessary steps are taking place to ensure this will not happen in the future. This is not how we believe in doing business. We believe in providing clean, family friendly cabins that will spoil you from the moment you walk through the door. We hope you will consider giving us another try to see how your cabin experience with us truly should be. We hope to see you again.
Rebecca C. from Jupiter, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 How do I begin. This vacation spot was chosen as a central area for me and my girls. I will start at the beginning of the cabin. There is a step up that is not visible so when my daughter came out of the cabin she fell. Get in the cabin and it is beautiful. First morning I found mice droppings on kitchen counter. I thought maybe the cleaning girl missed it and cleaned it before my children could see. One daughter told me during breakfast she heard squeaking and scratching. I said noooo, probably something outside. That daughter was on the converter couch. Every morning there were mice droppings and they got in the dog food bag and the food in pantry. There was no hiding anymore and my daughter would not let my grandson eat on the dishes. I washed dishes before I cooked and after. Not much of a vacation for me. The pool table is to big for the area. Every shot you make, you have to move the pool table to give room for the smallest pool stick. Yeah you can't use the long one. Good thing we don't take pool seriously. The hot tub smelled musty. I'm not sure if it lacked chemicals or what. last but not least, the bedrooms are on top of each other and downstairs can hear every move upstairs makes and the bed squeaks. With all the things wrong with cabin, it made for a hostil restless vacation
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Rebecca. We sincerely apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. Thank you for bringing these items to our attention. We do see where you reported the issue with the mouse in the cabin upon departure. We can assure you, pest control has been to the cabin and the issue has been resolved.

A guest from Fort Thomas, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 Love the cabin. Clean, close and great upkeep. High end appliances. Short drive to grocery, restaurants and cute shops. Very easy checkin,loved text message with code!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your wonderful review! We take pride in offering cabins that offer the type of amenities that ensure your visit will be memorable. We are happy to hear that we were successful in providing you an exceptional stay. It is hard to believe our resort is just 10 short minutes from all the hustle and bustle of downtown Gatlinburg. Rascals Retreat certainly gives you the best of both worlds. We are constantly making improvements, sending the codes via text messages is one of our recent additions. We strive to ensure that our check-in and check-out procedures are stress free. We hope that you will consider staying with us next time you are visiting our Great Smoky Mountains. Come back and see us soon!
A guest from Zionsville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 We had a great time in just two nights' stay in the Rascal Retreat. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and not be on top of each other like in a hotel room. The cabin is clean and beautiful. Sometimes we just sat and looked up at the woodwork. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool table, too. The only unfortunate part was the squeaking floors when anyone walked upstairs and the metal bed squeaking. Our poor travel mates on the lower level heard every move we made.The beds were very comfortable, however, and we did sleep well. Some noise and squeaking is to be expected with hardwood floors, but this was quite annoying.
A guest from Auburn, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 Usually the pictures on the internet are not always what you get in person. In this case what you see on the website is exactly what you get. The cabin was roomy, extremely clean, and peaceful. It's like a home away from home. The only thing you need to bring is food. We loved it so much that we plan to come back. Highly recommend.
Alexis K. from Worth, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 My group of 6 had a great experience staying at Elk Springs Resort Cabin. We stayed in Rascals Retreat and loved everything the cabin had to offer. We spent most of our time on the deck and out exploring Gatlinburg.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the 5-Star review, Alexis! Rascals Retreat is certainly the perfect cabin to stay at while enjoying all that the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer. It is the perfect location, only 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Please contact us when you are ready to start planning your next Gatlinburg adventure. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays.
Christopher B. from Comer, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 Very nice home, very well kept. Not secluded at all is the only drawback.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Please contact our sales department when you are ready to start planning your next visit to Gatlinburg. They can assist you in finding a secluded cabin for your next visit.
Karin S. from Lake Orion, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2016 We had a wonderful time in Gatlinburg! The cabin was beautiful and the perfect place to get away to! We spent a lot of time in downtime Gatlinburg and a whole day in the National Park, which was absolutely gorgeous! We will definitely be back and will use Elk Springs Resort again for our return!

Daniel P. from Fort Myers, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2015 Wonderful cabin, in an awesome neighborhood, (art district of Gatlinburg. Peaceful retreat, far enough from the touristy part of Gatlinburg, but close enough to enjoy it too. The local pubs and restaurants in the area of the cabin are amazing to. Strongly recommend to use Elk Springs Resorts. Can't wait to book my next cabin.Only recommendation, we arrived at night time to cabin, not being familiar with the area or the street, was tough to read the names of the cabins, soo dark, and secluded. The cabin names should be lit up or illuminated somehow. But we got it! Then everything else was a blast!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your wonderful review, as well as your suggestion. What a great idea! It has been relayed to the appropriate department to see if this is something we may be able to do in the future.

There are lots of hidden gems in our area. Please let us know when you are ready to start planning your next get-away.

Joel T. from Boca Raton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2015 My husband and I took this vacation with our newborn and my parents, so that they could have a wonderful time cozing up to their new grandson, while enjoying the beautiful mountains in a luxury cabin. My husband and I have used this company before and were thrilled to be coming back. The Rascal Retreats cabin was everything we had hoped it would be. Walking in the door to see the beautifully furnished "great room" with all the natural wood, the lovely fireplace, and the functional lay out: it let us realize we were gonna have an awesome trip. The kitchen was huge, and had so much counter space. There were so many storage closets, which came in super handy because traveling with a baby means packing a ton of stuff. The bedrooms each had the most amazing king size beds; they were easily the most comfortable beds we had ever slept in. There was even a pool table upstairs in the loft, with some stools and a tv for just hanging out and having fun. One of my personal favorites were the rocking chairs out on the wraparound deck. Sitting out there day or night and just taking in the scenery was so relaxing. Spending time in this immaculate and beautiful cabin for nine days was truly so much fun. We definitely plan on returning, but with the whole family, next time!!!!
Teresa G. from Gardendale, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 We loved the cabin ,the area where you play pool was not good To really play a game (to small) very close to town very clean the beds had some kind of form on top made bed to soft

Tia S. from Sugar Tree, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Loved staying at Rascals Retreat! The location was in the Arts and Craft Community and only a few minutes from downtown, while still far enough away to feel like a mountain retreat. The roads were paved and not steep at all. The beds were so comfortable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you Tia for a wonderful review and sharing your cabin rental experience with us.

Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review William. We are very sorry that you were expecting a jacuzzi tub. However, our details on our website do not mention anything about a jacuzzi tub. It says this unit has a hot tub, which we do hope you were able to enjoy along with the cabin itself.

My family would do it all over again.

Ken P. from North Royalton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 Our family of five (plus dog) found this cabin very clean, comfortable, quiet, and accommodating. Everyone loved the community, high speed internet, pool table, balcony, grill, and hot tub. My wife especially enjoyed the ample supply of kitchen dining and cooking utensils. There was plenty of cabinet and pantry space too. The location is a bit out of the way but overall, everyone enjoyed their stay and we were glad we chose this cabin.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We love to hear from guests that they were able to bring their fur babies on vacation with them and didn't have to board them at a kennel somewhere! Our fully-stocked kitchens allow for the opportunity to enjoy some home cooked meals without the added expense of eating every meal at a restaurant. Our cabins offer that home away from home feeling. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. Hurry on back and take advantage of your 10% discount for being a repeat guest!
A guest from Lake Bluff, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 We rented two cabins to accommodate our whole family and three dogs. The cabins were very roomy and gave everyone enough personal space. Beautiful setting close to many activities.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals What a wonderful review! Isn't it nice to know that pets are welcome in some of our cabins, so you don't have to pay to board them out while you are on vacation? Just one of the many reasons why we have so many returning guests at Elk Springs Resort!
A guest from Harmony, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 The cabin overall was beautiful.... but there were several yellow jacket nests and the cabin next door had a hornets nest on the front of there beam on front porch. The second morning when I got up and went out on the porch there was BAT poop everywhere! They where all up in between the logs and the roof, so we didn't use the hot tub after the 1st night. The only other thing that was missing from the cabin was a broom there was a mop, but no broom.
Brooke D. from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 The cabin was beautiful. Even nicer than the pictures. Cabin was clean upon arrival. It was nice to come back after daily activities and make dinner and relax as a family.
Chris M. from Sarnia Central, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 We stayed in May. The cabin Was great! The property was well maintained and clean. The resort staff called and checked on us and were very polite. It was the perfect spot to getaway and relax. We will book to stay here again!
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 Very nice and clean. The icemaker in the refrigerator was not working (or we didn't know how to make it work). No big deal because we had brought our own ice. Other than that, everything was great!
Loved our stay with Elk Springs Resort at Rascals Retreat
Christine K. from Birch Run, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 My family spent our spring break at Rascals Retreat and we were very satisfied with the cabin. It was extremely clean and well maintined. The beds were very comfortable. This cabin is pet friendly and is situated next to an open grassy area which is convenient for walking your dog. The cabin is near the Arts and Crafts area, close to a grocery store and gas station. We would recommend this cabin.
Tod B. from Canfield, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2015 What an amazing week we had while staying in this beautiful cabin. From start to finish everything was top notch. We have been coming to Gatlinburg for the last 12 years and this was by far the most enjoyable experience. Within this immaculate cabin you will find everything you need. It truly is home away from home.
Reviewed by: Shay A. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2014 Loved the cabin! Very clean and great amenities! Loved the location because there was a vacant lot next door where I could take my dog and throw the football around with my son. 3 minor complaints: (1)tv is not in HD, very blurry picture with a lot of glare.(2) gets extremely HOT upstairs when you run the fireplace or put the heat on....tough to regulate the temp throughout. (3)only were given bath 4 towels for a weeks stay (for 4 people). asked housekeeping for extras and they refused. said we needed to do laundry when they were dirty. would have been nice to have a few extra towels. Overall though, it was a great experience and would return.
A guest from Oakman, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 We had the best time during our stay at Rascals Retreat. The cabin was very well maintained; it was a short drive to most attractions although we did not want to venture out much once we got there!! Will be returning in the near future :)
A guest from Lake Villa, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 This was our first time visiting the Smoky Mountains. We hoped to explore the National Park, hike a bit, and relax with our dogs. We found exactly what we needed in Elk Springs and Rascals Retreat! The cabin was conveniently located just ~15 minutes from the "bustle" of downtown Gatlinburg, in a beautiful scenic neighborhood. Our cabin was next to an open grassy area... just perfect for the dogs. Although we had neighbors nearby we felt like we were in our own little world. The amenities were nice... especially loved the comfy beds and the hot tub! We also appreciated the washer & dryer... thank you! Wish the couch & chairs offered more support and that the washcloths were not so thin that you could see through them but still better than staying in a hotel. The reservation & check in were seamless... helpful, cheerful staff members made us feel welcome right from the start. We had a wonderful week and are already planning a return trip!
Alan E. from Franklin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2014 We loved our stay. The cabin is very nice, the customer service experience was even better. Thank you for assisting with the delivery of roses for my wife as we were celebrating our 20th anniversary.
Jack and Nancy K. from Conway, South Carolina recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 We loved the cabin in spite of the few problems we encountered. #1 we had no cell phone service so we couldn't get our code to get in. Luckily the cleaner was there and put it in for us. She also could not get in touch with the office. There was no back-up plan to get our code to get into the cabin beside our cell phone and apparently no signal happens often. #2 - No in cabin phone service. We were told we would have it. #3 - Dishwasher was not working, maintenance came out a couple of times but did not have the part. An inconvenience to us because we had to be there since we brought our dog. GFI in both bathrooms didn't work. They did a temp fix but did not replace them. If we used both, it would have snapped off again. Again, inconvenient for us. #4 Fireplace was not working. We were told only during the season. We were never told only after Oct. 1st. In spite of all the above, we had a great and relaxing visit. A lovely area, conveniently located.
Charles D. from Moneta, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 My Mother-in-Law, my Wife and I had a wonderful 4 days relaxing, enjoying our 3 Shelties, shopping for arts and crafts and going to shows in Pigeon Forge. The cabin was very comfortable and provided great relaxation time. Two items were of concern and those were the dishwasher has on of the spray arms broken and the thermostat for the upstairs heat/AC ran away on heat twice. It once was up to almost 80 when it was set to 70 deg. Other than those 2 items it was a great great away cabin.
Elk Springs is now our annual family vacation spot!!!
Jennifer M. from Willowbrook, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014 This is the 2nd year my family and I have gone to Gatlinburg and stayed at an Elk Springs rental. It was a great time, the weather was perfect and the overall stay was GREAT!!! The only downside was the outlets in both bathrooms didn't work and we had trouble getting out door unlocked when we first arrived. But we got a hold of maintainance and they were there quickly and fixed it for us!!
A guest from Severna Park, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 We were very impressed when we got to the cabin, but were concerned when we noticed the refrigerator was moved out from the wall. We also noticed there was no blender which we had planned to use. Very soon after the call, a man arrived with a new blender and went to look at the refrigerator. He mentioned that there was a problem with the ice maker and installed a new ice maker in the freezer within about 15 minutes. Because of their prompt service, what could've been a problem was a very minor thing. Everything else about the cabin was terrific! Very clean throughout including the hot tub on the deck. If we ever visit the area again, we will look here first.
Katherine G. from Mundelein, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Great last minute trip to Smoky Mountains. Property able to accommodate a family with 3 kids and a dog very comfortably. The washer/dryer also very key when doing a lot of outdoor activities. I don't know why anyone would stay in town when this is much more relaxing.
A guest from Cutler Bay, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 We stayed at Rascals Retreat property located at Elk Springs Resort. The cabin was very clean, spacious, all of the amenities necessary to make our stay comfortable and guest friendly. Short distance from downtown Gatlinburg and attractions. Great place!
A guest from Sharpsburg, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 This was our first visit to the Gatlinburg area and we were not disappointed. Our cabin was very spacious and very clean. It was well-stocked and everything was in working order. The property management company was very professional and met all our needs. The cabin was a little further outside the downtown area than expected but it was very quiet and relaxing. We really enjoyed the hot tub! We would definitely recommend this property to a friend.
Erica H. from Cincinnati, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 I always thought that being in a cabin in the mountains would be like a scene out of "The life and times of Grizzly Adams". Boy was I wrong! When I walked into the cabin, I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. It was clean, it smelled fresh, the furniture was very nice, and the bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! I was very impressed and I can't wait to go back. Elk Springs Resort is my new annual destination!
Scott R. from Harrison, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014 Bats in overhang of back porch pooped all day on chairs and ground near rear doors, otherwise great cabin. It is the wilderness though.
Ann S. from Bellaire, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 We stayed Rascal Retreat and loved the quiet location just 5 minutes outside of town and the huge deck for morning coffee or a glass of wine. The cabin was very nice and spacious, and well kept. Our only complaint was some weird resin that was hanging from the microwave and dropped to the stove top area. I think maybe there had been a microwave door repair or something with some sort of glue that hadn't been cleaned up. Other than that the place was very clean. Our Golden Retrievers loved this pet friendly unit. Management was very accommodating. My only other suggestion for improvement would be more dishes. There were only 4 place settings in the unit and it caused us to run the dish washer more than would have been necessary. Overall, we really loved this place and would stay here again and recommend it to friends. We were so happy not to have stayed in place right in the middle of town and loved being close to nature in this nice cabin.
Betty D. from Bluffton, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014 We were disappointed with the lack of sound barrier from the upstairs floors. If you walked upstairs, it was very loud downstairs. No should barrier, just plywood.
David D. from Brownstown, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014 Great experience from ease of making reservations to ease of check-in/out. Very clean; great location. Would definitely come back again.
Lacy S. from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 We loved walking around the entire cabin resort and enjoying the woods and mountain views. There's nothing more relaxing than sitting in a rocking chair with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise and listening to a symphony of birds. Rascals Retreat is decorated very cute and all accommodations were comfortable. Definitely want to return soon.
Reviewed by: Stacey G. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 The best cabin we have ever stayed in - will always book cabin through Elk Springs Resort in the future and have referred several friends to stay there from now on also.
Laura J. from Chlesea, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 Elk Springs was a delightful getaway, unlike any other experience I have had that exceeded all of my expectations! It was so peaceful and just what I needed!
John S. from North Worthrayton, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 Even though the location of the lodge was very nice, the traffic in Gatlinburg and Sevierville is horrible. For this reason, I would not return or recommend it to a friend. I was also disappointed with the amenities in Rascals Retreat. For example, the bath towels were very small. I would expect more for the price I paid.
A guest from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2013 We two couples had a wonderful time. In early November we had a great showing of color since the normal color was somewhat late. The Roaring Fork Trail was breath taking.
Terry C. from Aberdeen, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 Elk Springs Resorts does a great job of ensuring a wonderful stay at their cabins. The reservation and communication from them were very helpful. The Rascals Retreat was very nice - clean and well provided. Our only (minor) beef was that the chairs were not real comfortable. A recliner would be a big improvement. Otherwise it couldn't have been better.
Mike S. from Mooresville, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 Sap was very old Made it feel less than invitingWish there was a wood burning fireplace (indoor or outdoor)Overall very nice
A guest from Versailles, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2013 Beautiful pet friendly cabin that doesn't look like pets have been inside. Super clean! Check in and out process is so effortless. The surroundings are peaceful and it was wonderful to sit on the porch and rock the day away. I will be returning for years to come!
Anne S. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2013 Nice get away yet close to the community. ElkSprings never fails with amenities and cleanliness. We always come back and enjoy each and every cabin. Thank you ElkSpring for giving us the vacation we love!
Allison C. from Montgomery, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 My husband and I wanted to get away from it all but be close...Rascals retreat allowed us to do just that. We brought my parents who are older and can't get around like they use to; my father had no problems with using his walker. My husband and I are talking about our next trip but next we will stay longer. My parents are wanting to come back too.
Daniel P. from Christiana, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 Relaxing place to stay. We visit this resort every year. The cookware selection isn't too extensive but it covers the basics. Will be coming back soon.
Keshia H. from Jackson, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 The property was so great that we didn't want to leave the cabin to actually enjoy Gatlinburg. I plan to return just to stay in the cabin!
A guest from Sikeston, MO recommends this property.

A guest from Normal, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 We had a wonderful time in Elk Springs and would recommend this property management company to anyone considering a vacation in this area! The location was perfect, the property was well-maintained, and the arrangements were handled very professionally. Thank you for great memories.
Jeff B. from Oxnard, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 What a great way to spend a vacation in the woods totally professional and extremely easy check in and check out ---Fantastic stay
Melissa R. from Plainfield, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 Our stay at Ell Spring Resort was wonderful! The cabin is perfectly located a short 15 minute drive into Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, but enough off the beaten path to be quiet and serene. Our Rascals Retreat cabin was clean and well equipped. The kids loved the hot tub and the pool table, and used them both every day. The check in and out process was as easy as possible. I would definitely recommend a stay at Elk Springs!
Erik B. from New Port Richey, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2013 DON'T STAY HERE !!!!!! Because this location and cabin were perfect. Please look elsewhere . This will allow us to stay longer and have more choices of cabins at Elk Springs. All jokes aside, we had an amazing experience. It snowed on our last day and our cabin sat near a sloped field (Perfect for sledding). The kids had a blast as well as our dog. No complaints here other than losing electricity on our last day. But we made the best of it. The fireplace and grill still worked and we had a fridge full of beer. We will definitely stay here again and can't wait to come back. All the cabins appear well maintained as well as the property. And yes we wish we stayed longer. Believe the reviews. Other resorts in the area don"t compare.
Eu W. from Birmingham, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2013 The first night we stayed there was a leak in the upstairs restroom to the downstairs restroom right below we had to call maintenance. They already very quickly and solved the problem. The next day when we came back to the cabin after skiing we saw a hole in the wall in the kitchen/dining area and there were rats coming in and out of this hole. We've stayed here previously and it was great I think maybe this cabin was older so it may have had more problems. Otherwise it was a wonderful stay
A guest from Weston, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 We stayed at Elk Springs Resort during Christmas and LOVED it. The Cabin was so wonderful - so cozy. We enjoyed going for walks on the property and especially loved being so close to the Smokies' park entrance, groceries, restaurants, etc. Perfect location. We miss Rascals Retreat so much and can't wait to come back one of these days. Very clean cabin - don't hesitate to stay at Elk Springs. You will be very pleased.
A guest from Murfeesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 smooth check in, great cabin location, very clean, very relaxing,,,,Highly recommend Elk Spring Cabin rentals to everyone traveling to the Smoky Mtns
Hilma B. from Girard, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2012 We were very pleased with the cabin we rented, everything was in great shape. We had a problem with the dryer venting and they were there to fix it within 10 min of calling them. The men that came were very friendly and professional. We had wished it was a little more secluded, but the nest time we would ask for that.
Eric G. from Fox Lake, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 The property was simply amazing. Cleanliness was top notch and we found the cabin to be very comfortable. Located close enough to stores for the essentials, it was also far enough away from the busy sections in the area. There was plenty of hot water for showers etc. (how could there not be....the size of the hot water heater is huge!). All of the appliances were in top working condition. The only issue we had was the internet and phone provider (Comcast) went out on our fourth night and again the following morning. Other than those two short outages the internet was great. Very fast and reliable. We didn't use the hot tub, but did look at it and seemed very clean. We will definitely be coming back for another stay...hopefully we'll be able to stay longer next time. We can't wait to go back.
Dhivya S. from Mauldin, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 The cabins were just like the pictures on the website. Great views, very helpful staff, thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
A guest from West Alexandria, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2012 The only thing I didn't like was all the hidden fees. When I was making the reservation I asked why it was higher then what I figured out and they told me it was because of taxes. I didn't know til afterwards when I got the receipt that I saw the fees.
Kristen B. from Aurora, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 Our cabin was in a great spot and definitely our home away from home. Our kids LOVED the treat of having a TV in their bedroom. We loved having a beautiful, spacious spot to relax in after a day of hiking and sightseeing.
A guest from North Vernon, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 This cabin is very nice. It was a little noise in that everyone down stairs could hear every move made up stairs.
David C. from Washington, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2012 The cabin was very nice and the area was quite but some of the cabins are very close together.The management are professional and quick to fix any issues.If your looking for a view or seclusion this isnt your cabin.This is completely irrelevant but the tile installer did a ****** job with the bathroom floors but I am a contractor and look for these sort of things.Overall a pleasant experience but I'd rather have a mountain view for the money I spent on this cabin.
A guest from Point Pleasant, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Great rental company. Great cabin. Only 2 things. Mattress on sofa bed really needs to be replaced. Only suitable for small child. Also oven took forever to preheat to 450 degrees, in fact after 1 hour I gave up and just put our food in. It never did get to set degrees. Probably should be checked. I didn't call about it because I never had to use it again.
A guest from San Marcos, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 After reading so many negative reviews about other rentals it was nice to find one that was truly like home away from home. We would definitely stay here again.
A guest from Trussville, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 We have stayed at Elk springs for the last seven years . The location is great and cabins are always clean . We like to think of Elk springs resort as the no problem resort and just enjoy our vacation. See you next year.
Lance U. from Brookline, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2012 The cabin was great, good location. Only two real complaints. 1. The drinking glasses all had chips on the rims but two, also the dinner plates had chips.2. There was a wasp nest in the bathroom window between the glass and the screen so if you opened the window in would come the wasps! The staff was advised of the nest they said they would contact pest control but no show.Don't get me wrong the cabin and location were very nice and we had a very good vacation.
A guest from Fort Wayne, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 Weather was terrible for late April: cold, windy, cloudy -- but the cabin made up for it all. It was so beautiful that we cooked most of our meals instead of going to restaurants. We wanted to spend as much time as possible there. The staff was THE best. A couple of minor issues with toaster and gas grill were quickly resolved. The photos online do not do it justice. You will not be disappointed with this online booking.
Carrie W. from Louisville, Kentucky does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2012 Nice, clean cabin in a peaceful, relaxing location. Although, I would not necessarily call it "luxury." Bath towels need to be more plentiful and plush, not your run of the mill cheap hotel towels. The mattresses definitely need replacing, very creaky, and uncomfortable, especially after 6 nights. The bedding also needs regular updating/replacing. One quilt had a tear in it, the pillows were flat from wear, and the mattress pad and pillows were noticeably stained after removing linens. The pictures online are quite misleading. The cabin looked quite a bit bigger and you could not see other cabins, which is most definitely not the case. Lastly, we left an item in the cabin, called the same day about it, and was told it would be a couple days to get with the cleaning crew and then if anything was found they ship out every 2 weeks, not very prompt for "luxury." This was a pet friendly cabin with typical animal wear and tear, but this should not compromise bedding and towels. Overall a nice stay, enjoyed some hiking, relaxing in the hot tub, and good food, but was ready to come home to my nice comfy bed!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Carrie, we estimate a 2 week turn around on shipping items as a worst case, but glad we could get yours to you within 3 days. We have also replaced all the towels in our cabins within the last 2 weeks. Best regards and remember that you get 10% off as a future visitor.
A guest from Hickory Corners, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2012 Loved staying at Rascal's Retreat! Everything was beautiful. Wish extra batteries were available for the remotes...two of the three did not work and there were no extra batteries. Tin foil or plastic wrap in the kitchen would have been nice, too. Other than that maybe some wasp spray for around the porch/hot tub area since we have people who are allergic. The area and the people were so kind. Loved the mountains!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Sally, glad we were able to respond so quickly to your issues during your stay and also glad that you enoyed your stay! Remember as a repeat visitor you get 10% off future stays.
Eric P. from Mooresville, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2012 Very nice cabin! Lots of room for four of us. We like to bring our dog so it was great to find a pet friendly cabin with outdoor areas for him to enjoy. The resort is very convenient to Gatlinburg and has a nice park-like feel. We enjoyed taking walks around the resort and sitting in the covered swing provided along the way for a rest. We found the rates were very affordable compared to other cabins we've stayed. We'll be back!
Melissa R. from Milford Center, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2012 This was my second time staying at elk springs and they both were great. The cabin has all the qualities of home plus more, the kitchen is one of my favorites because i dont have to go out to dinner everytime im hungry. I defintly enjoy the bigger cabin ive stayed at knotty&nice and rascal retreat im a little spoiled from knotty&nice because it was so spacious and had nice added amenities. My family and i tell everyone this is the place to stay on gatlinburg and we will always come back when we go to tennessee.

Pam G. from Hixson, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 We loved staying at Elk Springs Resort. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I also like the ease of check in and check out. But, most importantly, the cabin was clean. That's our first priority when booking and even returning. We expect to stay at Elk Springs Resort from now on. We just loved the convenience, the area and the wonderful experience...and loved the area for our dog to use the bathroom and play. Everything worked out great this time. Thanks.
Francs M. from Little Falls, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2011 We have come to Gatlinburg for vacation for the past 10 years.

Joyce O. from Muscle Shoals, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2011 Before I made our reservations with Elk Springs, I read the reviews on Tripvisor but a co-worker of mine actually helped me finalize our plans as she had already stayed there and had rave reviews about it. Needless to say I had high expectations and at the end of our stay was not disappointed at all. The cabin was very nice, the surroundings gorgeous and we loved, loved the location. We also liked that we could walk throughout the property. The only improvement would be that the mattress on the bed downstairs was very uncomfortable and really needs to be replaced and other than that, we have no complaints and we will back. Oh, one more thing, we found Boogertown Rd. very interesting (not so much the night we were lost though, not at all LOL), so interesting that we googled it, very interesting reading about the history of Boogertown/Oldham.
Hiawatha R. from Crawley, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2011 Gorgeous cabin, exceptionally clean, and well appointed. The only, and I mean ONLY issue we had was with the sofa bed. The cabin is advertised as sleeping six. Until the sofa bed is replaced, it should be advertised as sleeping four. The sofa bed had a huge valley in the middle, and the mattress was so thin that it felt like sleeping on gravel due to the lumpy springs. Other than that, it was fantastic.
Tiffany B. from Memphis, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2011 THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR I HAVE SPENT MY BIRTHDAY AT THE ELK SPRINGS ALWAYS EVERYTHING WAS NICE & SPOTLESS. THE RESERVATION PROCESS & CHECK IN/OUT ARE TWO OF THE REASONS WHY I DONT WANT TO LOOK OR EVEN THINK ABOUT DEALING WITH ANOTHER COMPANY. TRUST ME I HAVE SEEN BEAUTIFUL CABINS WITH INDOOR POOLS BUT ONCE YOU READ THE OTHER COMPANIES POLICIES YOU'LL FIND ALL TYPES OF FEES FOR JUST ABOUT ANYTHING.WHEN I'M ON VACATION I DON'T WANT TO BE STRESSING ABOUT ANYTHING. ELK SPRINGS RESORT MAKES YOU FEEL RIGHT AT HOME. MY NEPHEWS HAD A BLAST.THEY EVEN GOT A CHANCE TO SEE A BEAR WHICH TOOK OUR TRASH CAN & ATE RIGHT UNDERNEATH OUR CABIN. WE HAD AN AMAZING TIME & OF COURSE WE WILL BE BACK
Tim S. from Tulsa, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2011 The cabin was beautiful and very clean upon arrival. Our only complaint was that the bed in the downstairs room was not as comfortable as the one upstairs. Otherwise everything was great!
Tracy L. from Pineville, LA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2011 We loved the cabin and the location. Everything was great except the beds were very uncomfortable and the floors creaked if walked on upstairs. If you told me it had a new bed then I would definitely stay there again next year.

Should you have an issue such as this during your stay please let us know as we have maintenance on site. We can respond and fix simple problems such as this very easily so as not to disrupt your stay.
A guest from dublin, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 This was a nice cabin to stay in. No problems at all. Mostly clean, however there were some areas that had dust bunnies and the matress pad had urine stains. We washed the matress pad and the stains came out so it is obvious that it just hadnt been washed since the "accident". Overall it was a good stay aside from the few cleaning points needed.

Gwendolyn H. from Maryvillle, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 The cabin was great and peaceful, quite and far enough away from the tourist but close enough to be envolved. We loved the Gas Fireplace even in the summer!
Travis C. from Goodlettsville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2011 The cabin was beautiful. I only had a couple complaints regarding the cabin one being the lack of cell service along with no cabin phone and the pull out sofa sleeper's sheet set was covered in pet hair from a previous resident. I would suggest more than one roll of toilet paper per bathroom as a family of 4 staying will go through that in no time. My reservation's went great the second person I spoke with. The first was not very helpful and would not honor an advertised special on your website. After multiple call back and two different quoted prices $100 higher than the special by this person I went to call a third time later in the day to go ahead with the extra expense since we had already planned the vacation. This call I spoke with someone different who not only gave me the discounted rate off the web but the whole process took 10 minutes and we were booked/paid saving $100 from the multiple calls earlier in the day.After I finally recieved the service I expected the first time and arrived at the cabin. I will say it was well worth the snags to get there. I am over all pleased with my stay and will recommend this to others in addition to repeat visits in the future.
A guest from Washington DC, recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2011 We are a military family so we have a hard time planning ahead because of my husband's travel schedule. Even harder to plan with dogs, especially a large dog. Elk Springs staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and they got us into a cabin right away. Even with our 2 dogs. The cabin was amazing and isolated just like wanted (we wanted privacy). But don't worry, it wasn't too far from downtown. About 10 minutes. And extra kudos for having codes instead of keys. I'm always loosing keys or forgetting them so it was very nice not to have to worry about that.Sometimes you can look online and be disappointed with the place when you arrive but you will not with these cabins. Our cabins was big, spotless and the bed very soft. I could see all the other cabins up the road and they are just as beautiful. Our 4 days flew by just way too fast. When we visit again we will stay at a Elk Springs cabin. Hopefully in the in the fall. Thank you for a wonderful stay Elk Springs Staff!- Kay
A guest from Sparta, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2011 Overall well-maintained and quite clean, except for wads of black dog hair in the corners. Several small and not-so-small problems: broken coffee machine, expired batteries in RC, no hot water during the last evening and morning. One afternoon, the neighbor's hot tub was refilled to overflowing, and gushed water for over an hour. We called housekeeping, maintenance and main office, but only reached answering machines. The location was ideal, near the arts and crafts community and off, but close to, tourist spots.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Sarah, certainly call us if you have any issues as we do inventory kitchen and maintenance items and do have housekeeping and maintenance on staff. Next time please leave a message, we typically respond within 5-10 minutes when our agents are busy assisting other guests. We have on site housekeeping and maintenance and can address the issues you identified very very quickly.
A guest from New Richmond, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2011 This was our second time staying at Elk Springs Resort and we can't wait to go back. We've stayed in two different cabins and LOVED each of them. We are so thankful ESR has pet friendly cabins. The location is great. You are close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but in the same respect far enough away to have peace and quiet. We are already planning our next trip.
David M. from Jonesborough, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2011 Clean and maintained, but not a lot of privacy as the other cabins are so close and all around. The furniture was nice looking however it sat horribly, absolutely no support, accept for the bed. This being said, I must still say I enjoyed my stay and would recommend that others consider this resort.
Janice K. from Leesburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2011 Really enjoyed our stay at Rascal's Retreat. Looked exactly as pictured, was super clean, and had everything we needed for a time of rest and relaxation! Added bonus for women travelers was the on-site security. Looked a long time for a cabin to rent with easy access for my 76 year old mom. The parking and entrance made it so easy for her (and me too)! Loved our stay and will recommend to others!
Anna K. from Jasper, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 We had an abslolutely wonderful time at Elk Springs Resort. We stayed at Rascals Retreat and it was absoulutely beautiful. The cabin was clean and we had no issues with anything during our stay. I will definitely stay at Elk Springs resort again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful cabin to stay at while in Gatlinburg
A guest from Galloway, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2011 The property of Rascal Retreat was extremely clean. This statement is also coming from a family of neat freaks. Rascal Retreat is very comfortable especially for dog owners. There is an open lot adjacent to the cabin fielded with grass so can walk your dog for bathroom breaks. The cabin is in great condition all items inside in working order. Exterior lighting is very good. (ie, motion sensor) The propertys are also patrolled by on site security at night. Beside being a short drive to downtown Gatlinburg, the fire house and sheriffs office are near by, for the just in cases. The staff was very pleasant. I will stay here again and would recommend to others and families. Thank you Elk Springs.
Jessica N. from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2011 We had a short weekend at Rascals Retreat, but it was a great getaway for sure! We came to go to Ober Gatlinburg for the day, and after our first day on the slopes, the cabin was great to come home too. Very comfy and relaxing! We will definitely be back!
A guest from Michie, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2011 Staying at this cabin was amazing. The property manager and all staff members were very helpful and friendly. it was easy to get to and the cabin was beautiful. The only problem was that the cabin was in no way private. If your going to use the hot tub then also plan to be stared at by all the other guests driving around.
David P. from Brandon, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in December, 2010 Thanks to all that made our stay comfortable. The weather had us feeling a little insecure, but the staff made sure we were taken care of. Thanks to all- it was way more than we expected! We will be back again soon- hopefully!!The cabin was so clean and roomy. We loved it!!!
Divyapratap C. from Dublin, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2010 We had an excellent time at elks springs resort. We arrived late night and someone from staff was on round and made sure that we get in comfortably. Hot tub and gas grill were clean and in ready to use condition. If the names of the cabins can be written in a bit larger font that'll b great.
A guest from Elgin, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2010 The check in and check out process could not have been made easier. I could not think of a single creature comfort that could be added to the cabin to enjoy our stay more.The only down side is the local traffic in Gatlinburg.
Only suggestion- recycle!!!!!! and possibly pizza pan
A guest from Germantown, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 Beautiful location and cabin! Will most certainly suggest this property to others.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Dissapointingly Gatlinburg does not recycle! And we have to drive 70 miles to the nearest recycling center. We are dissapointed too!
A guest from Kirbyville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2010 We had a great time! The cabin and location were beautiful! It was very peaceful and quiet. We had (5) adults in our group and the only thing I'd change is to book a bigger cabin next time. We had a (2) bedroom, it was nice and cozy, but we could have used a little more room.
Judy L. from Cedarville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2010 I researched many properties in the Gatlinburg, TN area. This property by far exceeded all the other cabin options that I saw. I was impressed with all the recommendations by other travelers...now I know what all the fuss was about! Excellent says it all!
A guest from Orlando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2010 The cabin and rooms were very clean and comfortable. We had no problems with reservations or arrival. I would definitely stay here again or one of the other cabins at Elk Springs. You do have to drive to town, but it's not that far, just be careful at nightime since it's very dark outside of Elk Springs Resort area.
Angela B. from Mt Washington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2010 The only negative thing I can say about our rental property was that there was no phone available at the location and we had no cell phone service available while at the cabin. I have young children, so they had no way to reach me in an emergency while we were away except to call my cell phone and leave a message and for me to retrieve it once I went into town. Other than this the cabin was wonderful and would definately go back and recommend it to others! Thank you for a wonderful weekend getaway!
A guest from Arlington, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2010 Well furnished! Clean! Convenient to Gatlin'g! Easy ck-in/ck-out! Friendly staff! We really enjoyed our stay! Just a few things to note: very loud creaking by bed & floor upstairs (above additional bedrm); very weak wireless signal on rainy days; noisy neighbors (two times @ 1:30am--sound travels easily)
A guest from Knoxville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 Great four day weekend in the mountains. Only downside was that when we arrived the hot tub was not hot. That problem had fixed itself by the next morning. Also the view wasn't great. The cabins are fairly close together.
A guest from Brandon, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2010 We loved the cabin but they are built too close together. There was no view of the mountains from our particular cabin. The cabin was very nice just would have liked more privacy.
Lauretta P. from Humble, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2009 The accommodations were lovely and the staff helpful. I do have to say I was a little mortified to be instructed to leave all towels in one bathtub; that is a housekeeping task and my stay was not cheap. Also the "tag on" fees are excessive.
