A guest from Falmouth, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2016 Beautiful and spacious cabin. The cabin itself was very clean and most furniture nice. However, living room furniture was in poor condition. The two living room chairs were dirty, actually nasty and had to be covered with sheets. A few disappointments along the way: Price on line was $75 dollars cheaper a night than when went to actually book an hour later and management would not honor price. outside light not working (could not see to use hot tub) and plasma tv not hooked up. We did not realize until got home first night and decided to enjoy. It took over 2 hrs. before someone came to fix which was then too late to enjoy. Also, the plasma tv is not hooked up to cable. This cabin sits on incline and not top of mountain - some of the pictures can be deceiving. Overall, the cabin was well built, spacious and nice - however probably would not rent again unless furniture updated and would be extra cautious about on line price.

Travis H. from Louisville, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 If you have allergies, want a view and want to watch sports on the 8 foot screen like they show in the pictures then this house is not for you. Main reason I rented this cabin was to watch sports/college football on large screen which is only for movies. Do not be fooled by the Pro Football team on TV they have in adverstising pic. These pics are also old. No view of mountains, all you see is woods. Can do that in my back yard. If have kids may be ok just watching videos on TV but we don't - all adults. Carpet on steps and downstairs dirty. Red fabric chairs in main living looked like pulled from side of street where discarded. Seems I'm being picky but when you pay almost a months mortgage for 4 days and leave 1 day early bc ready to leave, I have concern. Location was good. Will not rent this cabin again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay at Blackjack. We care about the quality of your stay. Your feedback is vital to us as it helps us to improve the quality of our cabins. We apologize for any misunderstanding regarding the big screen television in the theater room having the capability to play anything other than movies. We have notified our marketing department of the picture showing the football game and will have it removed. The description only advertises it as playing movies and we sincerely apologize that the picture made it look otherwise. This cabin is advertised with a wooded view. All of the pictures on our website reflect this as well. We try our best to ensure what we advertise is exactly what you will see at the cabin. Each of our cabins are furnished with quality furnishings. We apologize that you did not feel the red chairs were up to this standard. We will have one of our technicians assess both of the chairs to ensure they are of the quality our guests come to expect when staying with us. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience experienced and hope you were able to enjoy your time spent in our area in light of these issues.
A guest from Floyds Knobs, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2016 The outside grill was unusable.. totally rusted grate with half working burners. Fridge water did not work. Called management co and they stated a work order was issued for the water line freezing last winter.. so like almost a year ago.
Jeremy F. from Orland Park, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 We stayed 6 days with another family in the Blackjack cabin and the layout and size of the unit was perfect. On day two we had an issue with a clogged drain and called the property management. They came out within an hour and fixed the issue while we headed out in an adventure. We also liked the Elk Springs location and frequently took our dogs for walks through the neighborhood. Traffic was minimal and we greatly enjoyed the peace and quiet. We will definitely rent from Elk Springs again.
A guest from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 It was very nice plenty of spacious room. Very clean bedrooms and bathrooms. I really enjoyed the hot tub didn't want to get out felt so good! Overall stay was nice relaxing and peaceful. Other than hearing something in the woods eating a 1am snack that was alittle scary but I didn't care long as whatever it was. I was just glad me and my family wasn't going to be the snack we were safe in the cabin.
Chris B. from St Henry, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 This was a Family Vacation that was one of the best that we have had. The location is perfect. You are a short distance from Gatlinburg and also from Pigeon Forge. We played Golf, horseback riding, Drove ATV's on wooden trails, and visited many of the local establishments (not big on Chain Restaurants). Also a big hit was the streams in the Smokey Mountain Park. We all wish we would have stayed at least one more day. Thanks Again for the great fun and stay in Blackjack!
Jason P. from Waynesboro, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Very much enjoyed our stay. This was a way overdue vacation. The cabin was large enough for me, my wife and our 5 kids. There was plenty to do for the whole family too. It kept the kids occupied and not arguing like they normally do.lol

A guest from Wesson, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2016 Blackjack was great! Very Clean when we arrived. Loved all the amenities! The staff at Elk Springs Resort could not have been nicer-answers emails/retrains calls very promptly. The cabin was a great location-not too far away from the Gatinburg area, but far enough to feel that you're somewhat secluded. My family enjoyed the trip so much, we're already planning a return trip! Thanks again for the great service!

Daniel G. from Miramar, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 My family and I enjoyed our stay at Blackjack Cabin very much. The cabin was big and beautiful, even better than the pictures. We had a wonderful time, everyone was very nice. We had one small problem with the water dispensing from the refrigerator and the problem was immediately addressed and fixed. We couldn't have asked for a better time and definitely look forward to more visits in the future. Thank you Elk Springs!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review, Daniel! The pictures certainly do not reflect the true beauty of this cabin.

Reviewed by: Nancy M. recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 What a wonderful family vacation! Elk Springs Resorts was just what we were hoping it would be; an amazingly beautiful log cabin with beautiful, quiet surroundings just minutes to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Our cabin was clean and comfortable. Our family was able to enjoy the movie theatre room with a Redbox located just down the road. Checking-in and out at Elk Springs Resort was so easy. This was our first visit to Gatlinburg and we will definitely be back again. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation.

Darius S. from Wyoming, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 We stayed in one of the Elk Springs cabins before so expected the very best this time too. The cabin was just OK, however. It is one of the older cabins, with lots of signs of tear and wear. The couch in the living room was so dirty due to years of wear that it certainly needs to be replaced. However, the beds were relatively comfortable and bedrooms, bathrooms clean. Net, it was OK, but will not stay here again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We appreciate your business, Darius and I am sorry that you didn't enjoy this cabin as much as we would have liked. We have not had any other reports about the couch, but will be sure to follow up on your complaint and replace the couch if necessary. Our maintenance and housekeeping staff spend a great deal of time in our cabins and report any issues like this, so I am sorry if you felt the cabin was just "ok". We do have many luxury cabins to choose from on our rental program, so we hope this experience won't keep you from being a repeat visitor at Elk Springs.
Oakfield B. from Oakfield, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2015 Good trip, great cabin. See you next year.

Jason F. from Woodbridge, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2015 The first time we visited, we stayed in Mountain Memory, and although the cabin was designed for fewer people, it seemed bigger than Blackjack. Moreover, the views from Mountain Memory were much better than Blackjack. The kitchen was bigger in Blackjack, and for our purposes this visit, that worked for us. I was happy with the stay, wish it was a longer stay and a little less expensive.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your feedback Jason. We have several luxury rental cabins in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville to choose from and will be more than happy to assist you in finding one to suit your needs for your next visit. We appreciate you being a repeat guest and look forward to doing business with you for many more years to come!
Kimberly A. from Whites Creek, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 My family and I spent Halloween at the Blackjack cabin. There was 8 of us and the place was perfect! We all had plenty of space. My only suggestion would be that, they provide some movies to watch on the projector screen, otherwise you can't use it and it's just a wall decoration. It would really be nice if it were attached to cable. My father wanted to watch football and that would have been perfect! However, we had a great time. I would definitely stay again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your feedback, Kimberly. We appreciate your comments and suggestions regarding the movie theater. We have left movies in the past for our guests to enjoy, but they would end up going home with guests. Due to potential electronic damages, we do not have our projectors hooked up to anything but DVD players. There is a red box rental just 5 minutes from the resort at the Food City grocery store where movies can be rented. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return.
Matt S. from Upton, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Great locations very quiet but close to attractions. Also like the Craft area of town.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your review with us Matt. The Arts & Crafts community located just 5 minutes away from this cabin is the perfect place to spend a day shopping. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your cabin rental experience with Elk Springs Resort and hope you will return again some day.
A guest from Kingwood, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 It was a nice cabin even though it was not the one we originally reserved. Our original reservation had more amenities than we received in the substituted cabin. This cabin is nice and if it is your original choice it would be a good one. The pictures and information that is provided on the website is accurate from what we saw in the substituted cabin. The management company did a great job.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review Anna. We are sorry about the maintenance issue (water leak) that caused us to have to move you from your original cabin choice. While we have no control over this particular maintenance issue occurring, we did work quickly to provide you with a nice alternative cabin. We hope you will come back to stay with Elk Springs Resort again.
A guest from Avon, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 We had a wonderful vacation at Blackjack! The kids loved the movie room and arcade. That kept them entertained, when we were relaxing at the cabin. The cabin was very clean, and we had a lot of room for all 8 of us. The air conditioning worked great, and we had no problem staying cool. We were only about 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. Hope to come back!

A guest from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 We had initially rented a cabin in the smokey mountains. A couple of days prior to our departure, I called the management company to inquire about access to the cabin via RV and was immediately informed that the cabin was not accessible by RV and promptly refunded our deposit. I quickly started another online search for suitable properties and found the "Blackjack" cabin in Elk Springs Resort ... A great find! The property description was completely accurate and was perfect for me, my two sons, my daughter-in-law and 5 grandchildren, ages 2-17. When we walked in, the older grandkids said, "Mimi, this place is off the chain"! They loved having their own space on the lower level ... and so did we! The property was clean and very well-maintained and we were provided exceptional customer service. The sound on the arcade machine was not working properly and after reporting it to the manager, someone was there within 30 minutes to resolve the issue. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you Bobbie! This cabin choice sounds like it was a perfect fit for you and your family! We are pleased that you found our customer service to be exceptional, the cabin very clean and that our maintenance staff was able to resolve your minor issue promptly. Don't hesitate to bring the whole family back for another fun-filled stay. We do offer a 10% discount to all repeat guests.
Richard B. from Rockwall, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 We arrived and everything was very clean and just like the pictures shown on the website. The cabin was spacious, wonderfully decorated,quite and peaceful, but just minutes from great shopping and activities. Loved waking up and sitting on the deck overlooking the forest and having coffee in the mornings.We only had one minor problem during our stay at the cabin. When we went to cook, the outdoor grill would not work. We called Elks Springs and they came out that same morning, By early afternoon, they had installed a new grill with plenty of time for grilling. Awesome response time. Thank you for an outstanding time. We will definitively be coming back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review! Your testimony about the malfunctioning grill is proof that we go above and beyond for our guests. When booking your next cabin stay, be sure to let us know that you have stayed with us before. We give all of our repeat guests a 10% discount!
Eric E. from Cibolo, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 We recently stayed at the Blackjack cabin at Elk Springs as a last minute stay in the Smoky Mountain area. The entire experience for our family of four was unbelievably exceptional! The cabin and surrounding area was clean, very spacious, and central to a lot of the area attractions.You don't get a true appreciation until you venture into Gatlinburg a drive along the strip seeing thousands of people crammed into small hotels/motels. The cabin is the size a house and includes all the amenities you could want. The kids really enjoyed the pool table and upright video game console. Also each cabin on the property was completely different from the others.Without question, Elk Springs is our "go to" place when visiting the Smoky Mountains!Everything from the reservation to the virtual check-in to the departure was flawless!
Bo F. from Savannah, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 I have been there last year with my family and friends. It was a amazing! This year I stayed in pepper black, it's still great! Evert hing is perfect again!
A guest from Melbourne Beach, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015 Elk Springs cabins, roads, and grounds have always been awesome. We had a fantastic stay. Wonderful days in the smoky mountains and return to the cabin for a relaxing night hanging out with family.
Harish K. from Piscataway, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 Delivers what it promises, a warm comfortable stay, nestled among the woods. Very responsive management company, were there at the cabin within five minutes of me reporting a glitch with the home theater system, and were very cooperative too.
Dianne C. from Sterling Heights, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blackjack Cabin. The rooms were spacious and clean. We went there to hang out and relax, and that's just what we did! The furniture was comfortable and the equipment was all in perfect working order. Even though it rained while we were there, we had plenty to keep us occupied. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable stay. Our only complaint was that our time there was too brief.
A guest from Crestwood, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2015 We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cabin.

JulieAnne K. from Moore, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 The cabin was very clean and functional, it had everything we needed to enterain our 4 children and plenty of room for sleeping! Our children wanted to move in permanently!
A guest from Sunbright, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 Experience was overall great, was disappointed that the hot tub was not working. It was repaired during our stay but did not get warm in time for us to use it. Staff was great to work with and cabin was clean and very spacious.
Bashara H. from Salem, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2014 Everything was super clean and was as nice as the pictures showed. The customer service was A++ too. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I'm already making plans to return. Elk Springs put the "great" in The Great Smoky Mountains.
Duane E. from Ararat, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Very comfortable. Didn't appreciate someone coming and showing the cabin to another family in the middle of our vacation, was looking through windows. Not professional.
Matthew K. from Canton, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2014 My family and I spent a week in this cabin and was very nice. I do wish that there were a few more external lights on the property, deck, and hot tub area. It was quite dark in the evenings when we would use the hot tub.
A guest from Grand Forks AFB, ND recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 We loved our cabin. This was our first time using Elk Springs Resort and we will be using them again and hopefully make it a yearly experience. The pictures of the cabin were very accurate. The cabin was very clean. Check in/out was so easy. Our family had a great time!! Quick access to downtown Gatlinburg but also private! Loved our stay. We can't wait to book our next stay!!
A guest from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2014 Recently, we stayed at Blackjack for a girls weekend with 8 total people. Blackjack was perfect, giving plenty of bed and bathroom space. Plus, the main floor had tons of seating options for meals and board games. The upstairs bedroom was perfect for the older folks to get away and the bottom floor had it all: games, huge TV screen, a bar area, hot tub and seating. The downstairs does get pretty chilly in the winter, so bring socks to sleep in! I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking.
Brandy W. from Fayetteville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2014 I bought a Groupon so I was slightly worried about what the place would actually look/be like. I was extremely impressed! We had a different cabin originally but the water wasn't working so they moved us to Blackjack! We will be staying there again for sure!
Sam S. from West Chester, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 We had a wonderful time staying at Elk Springs Resort again and loved taking a break from Cincinnati. The cabin, Blackjack, was beautiful and great for pets! Thanks to everyone at Elk Springs for a great vacation!
Timothy B. from Granger, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 This cabin was great for our family's fall getaway. It was extremely clean and ready for us on our arrival to Gatlinburg. The management company called us with our code as they said and even checked in the next day to see if things were good. The cabin was stocked well with essential items which made it very easy when we arrived so we didn't have to run back out to pick up things. It's close to town and the community where it resides was great to take kids on walks. I would highly recommend this cabin and we will check it out again next time we visit Gatlinburg.
Linda M. from Elk Grove Village, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 Wonderful trip to the Smoky Mountains, our cabin was very comfortable, everyone enjoyed our stay at Elk Springs Resort, our third trip now, we brought more family members this time and plan to return again!
A guest from Rochester Hills, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2013 We stayed at this cabin with my in-laws for about a week and it was okay. The view outside was of the side of a hill and not the mountain view that we were expecting. We also has some issues with the cleanliness as we found junk in 2 different rooms and there was dust caked in one area in the bathroom. The sound travelled from one floor to the next pretty readily, but I can't hold that against them as that's what happens in a log cabin. The property management was always very professional and they were very easy to work with.
A guest from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 Blackjack is a very nice cabin and must be cleaned by folks who take their job very seriously. There is not a speck of dirt to be found. The thing that sold us was that it is pet friendly and kept us from boarding our shih Tzu during our honeymoon.That being said, two things were irritating about Elk Springs management. First, one picture shows an NFL game on the nine foot tv screen. Unless you have a DVD of a game, this will not happen because the basement tv does not have cable. The only function it serves is to watch a DVD. Second, I called to express concerns over a couple of small matters and no one ever answered the phone. The one time I did reach a person, he was apathetic.I would give Elk Springs a second try because of the cleanliness, but this cabin was not all I had envisioned.
stayed at Blackjack Cabin did not have a mountain view :(
Sherry F. from Lake Worth, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 Location was great although the Blackjack cabin had no Mountain views and in the mountains that would have been key. Cabin was clean but needed some upgrades in Kitchen and linens for bed were old and stained. would bring my own next trip. Bathroom by kitchen a little creepy.Toilet is located right next to kitchen a little to close. Layout was weird and uncomfortable. Best part I was able to take my dogs. Also fire place did not work. I would try a different cabin next time and bring my own sheets.
William B. from Clinton Township, Michigan does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Little things about the cabin were dirty broken or not there this time. And although some were addressed right away I would expect that a place that I am paying over $350 a night would be in top condition and fully functional upon arrival
A guest from High Point, NC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 Good space, bad location, acceptable once you learn the back roads. Only one of three bedrooms even had a closet. Would have been great to have a mountain view and not look just at trees. Pretty entrance. House oriented peculiarly on property.
William T. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2013 Only shortcoming is lack of dedicated swimming pool for use by guests. Did not like indoor pool at the community center. Will definitely return for another stay when the planned pool is available. Excellent facility otherwise.
Susan L. from Laflin, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in June, 2013 Elk Springs Resort is a beautiful resort. We loved our stay. Cabin is clean, modern, beautiful decorated, well appointed, and in a great part of the Gatlinburg area. Blackjack is not as private as the other cabins and is on the main road of resort, so not as secluded feeling as the other cabins. If that is not important to you, then this cabin should be considered!
A guest from Evans, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 Very nice cabin, worth the price. Watched a movie on the big screen from the hot tub. I like how the cabin was sectioned off, three different levels. Few negatives I can think of, is that there is not much light by the infrared BBQ grill, so get done before it gets dark. 10am check out is a little early when you are trying to get the dishes and laundry put away as well as pack and making sure that nothing gets left behind.
A guest from Dublin, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 The cabin was very clean and furnishings were well done except for the downstairs pull out couch which was very poor. We did not use the hot tub, but still had a $45.00 fee assessed. Overall, lovely cabin, but overpriced.
A guest from Maylene, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 Blackjack provided the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation. Close to area attractions, yet private. Would recommend to anyone.
Amazing Church Retreat, Thanks in Part to Elk Springs
Amy D. from Moss, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2013 All of the accomodations in our four cabins were phenomenal. Our church youth group loved the space and fun offered by these luxury cabins.We have been traveling to Elk Springs Resort for several years now to attend a youth conference. I can't imagine staying anywhere else with our group! Thanks for all you do.
Nichole F. from Hamilton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2013 We always enjoy coming to gatlinburg and staying at elk springs. The cabin we stayed in was not our favorite but was very nice. We also wanted to reserve one for next year and the staff was very nice and let us check out the one we wanted to reserve for that stay so that we would make sure we liked it.
Ella S. from Romulus, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 We love staying in the Black jack! This was our second stay there and we plan to come back!Its very relaxing for those who want to stay back and just hang out...but for those who want s to get out,there are many things to do in the area.
Jeremy C. from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2012 We really enjoyed our stay at Blackjack in Elks Spring Resort. The cabin was very clean and cozy. We wish the cabins were a bit closer to attractions, but it's great to get away from everything as well. The beds were a bit hard and some of the furniture was a bit worn and uncomfortable, but no complaints otherwise.
A guest from Bowling Green, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in October, 2012 Reservations did a great job helping me find a cabin on a short notice. The cabin was beautiful. Property was conveniently located and well maintained. We checked in after dark and had a little trouble finding the cabin. I would recommend making the cabin name more visible at night. Our only complaint would be arriving at the cabin and finding out we did not have phone service. Everyone had AT&T and apparently there is not a tower close enough for service.
A guest from Corunna, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 We enjoyed our stay immensely. The cabin was every thing we expected. The location was very easy to find and the amenities it has were all thoroughly enjoyed. From relaxing inside on a rainy day in front of the fireplace or watching a movie in theatre room to relaxing in the hot tub or grilling on the large decks, everything was great. Everyone is already talking about our next stay in the Smokies.Thanks for an enjoyable vacation.
Bob K. from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 The cabin was very comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The views were awesome. We all felt like we were home. This was our second time to rent a cabin at Elk Springs. We all defnitely want to come back and stay longer. We also liked the area with it's art and craft community. It was nice to also be close to Gatlinburg. All the people in the stores, restaurants, rental staff etc. were friendly and hospitable. Cannot wait to come back.
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 The perfect spot. Loved returning from the milling crowds to the bucolic resort out of the chaos. Staff there immediately there was so much as a light bulb out, and delightful. Like the extra safety features (e.g. cable on hot tub). Also found many many things to do that cost nothing: our 4 grandsons "creek-ed" and "rock-ed" rather than do any of the Gatlinburg costly stuff. Thanks, to all at this resort. Talk to Marti if you want to book, she knows her properties
A guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2012 Our stay at the Blackjack cabin was great and exactly what we were looking for. I thought it would be a little closer to Gatlinburg, but it was very convenient to the grocery, Arts and crafts shops, and main highway..and only 10-15 minutes to Gatlinburg. We loved it. Thank you for all of your help. And, a big thanks to Patrick who checked on us after our checkin--very appreciated. Take care.
A guest from Jamestown, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2012 we've stayed in other cabins in pigeon forge.all were good to great.blackjack is a great 1.size of rooms & kitchen perfect.bonus room perfect for the kids.love having no carpet in bed rooms.need a little more room around the pool table.theatre room not its own room but still ok.great place to stay & would go back again.didn't see any bears!
Susan B. from Peoria, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2012 The cabin and surroundings were beautiful. I would recommend this cabin to everyone. It offered something for all of us. we brought family with us and everyone had their own floor that accommodated their needs. Beautiful cabin. Thank you for the experience!
A guest from Narvon, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2012 Our family of eight thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at "Blackjack". The jacuzzi was great,the beds were comfortable and we made good use of the outdoor grill. It was nice that the cabin is located 10 minutes from Gatlinburg,so we could come and go as we pleased and not lose a lot of time driving.These cabins are located in a resort type of setting and some are fairly close together,but the area is very wooded and feels secluded. We even saw a bear cub just up the road from our cabin! We would definitely recommend this cabin and Elk Springs Resort to anyone looking for a semi -private location near Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge,Tennessee.
Joseph H. from Bluffton, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 A worry free experience in a very nice log cabin, with nice furniture and amenities. All plates, silverware, cookware, towels, etc. were provided too which provided a carefree stay.
A guest from Lenoir City, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it!! The staff were all very helpful and the cabin was very clean and well stocked. The cabin was well decorated and the views were breath taking. We will be coming back again in a few months with friends!
Denise W. from Coral Springs, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2012 Cabin was beautiful, location was peaceful. Looks just like the photos. Clean, modern cabin and prompt courteous property management. Would stay here again in the future and recommend to all my friends and family
Dawn R. from Lousiville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2012 The cabin was beautiful! This was our second time staying in the resort. It's such a great getaway and the kids always enjoy all the room. The Only thing I would suggest would be to upgrade the tv's to flat screens in the bedrooms and a few more sauce pans in the kitchen. We stayed here for two nights and on our third night moved to another cabin. The staff was great on making sure our move was done in a timely manner. We are grateful for you sharing this clean and beautiful resort with our family. God truly blessed us with this getaway!!!
A guest from Fluahing, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 I made our reservation with Marti at Elk Springs - she was excellent, can't say enough good about her customer service and expertise! We were very please with the BlackJack cabin. It was clean and spacious.
Juanita C. from Greer, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2012 I would say that if you are travelling with teens that this cabin is practically perfect in every way. The entire lower level is a great place for them to hang out and have fun. The adults meanwhile can have peace and harmony upstairs. This cabin is very open and really beautiful. We cook...a lot. This cabin had beaters. I have never been in another cabin that thought to include them. We were pleased with the oven size and large fridge. We never ran out of ice and we had a party of 12. The only drawback to this cabin was that the upper master bedroom had no closet. The room itself is huge, so it was a slight inconvenience and did not detract from our weekend. I specifically asked about an indoor pool and was told that there was an indoor community pool nearby that we could use. I was somewhat surprised that the pool was the actual Gatlinburg Community Center. The pool closed at 6pm on Saturday. It doesn't open until 1pm on Sunday. This was a large inconvenience. Also, I noticed that the pool may have swim meets and other activities that might cause the general swimming to be cancelled. This cabin is ideal and really was quite a bargain. It houses large family groups and you are not tripping over each other. The porches are massive. The fireplace adds to the beauty of the family area. The beds are comfy. The gas grill is a pipeline so you can grill for the whole rowdy crew and not worry about the tank running out. There are many more wonderful features to this cabin and we would give it two thumbs up!
Audrey C. from Clarksville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2012 We went for a quiet, relaxing get-away with our family and had a blast. It was big enough that we all had our own privacy. I would recommend this vacation to anyone. We plan on coming back in the summer and maybe winter!!!
John W. from Centerville, Tennessee does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2012 Though we made the best of it, not having the use of the home theater until the night before we left was very disappointing! We also found a few dirty dishes, which makes you wonder what else was dirty there. Management never replied to our request for restitution for not having the HT available since that is why we booked this cabin. We also had to call for the XBox and the maintenance person working on the HT asked for us be called to be told he wasn't able to get back until the next day and we never got the call.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We do prefer that guests do not attempt to manipulate the wiring of the theater system to connect game systems. Doing so can damage the unit as it happened on the second night of your stay. They can be connected but it's important to follow the instructions that posted next to the theater system. Otherwise you do run the risk of damaging the unit which did happen during your stay. We were unable to replace the system as we did not have the system we needed until the next morning. Also, we're glad we were able to provide the xbox within 15 minutes of your request as we do keep these in a central location for check out upon request.
A guest from Port Wentworth, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2012 The cabin was great, our only problem was that it took the downstairs 3rd level a long time to warm up during the night. The amenities were great!!! We are definitely planning our winter vacation here!!!!!
Kelly F. from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2011 We had a wonderful time in our cabin in the smokeys, it was clean, beautiful and in a great location. I will definitely be back!!
Janeane B. from Columbia, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2011 We took our kids and grandchildren for 4 days during Christmas and had a wonderful time. Our whole family loved it!
A guest from Youngstown, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in December, 2011 We are repeat visitors to Elk Springs and always love the cabins. Although this unit - Black Jack needs a deep dusting. All the interior logs walls were loaded with dust and the outside definitely needs pressure washing. The high central windows haven't seen windex in a long while. Other than that everything was **** n span. Our only major complaint was self inflicted - we didn't book a longer stay! :-)
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thanks for the comments. We have addressed these and do apologize. Thanks again for visiting and glad you enjoyed your stay!
Joanna N. from Connellsville, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011 Blackjack is exactly as the pictures describe except for the sitting room. There isn't a sitting room there is a pool table in which the kids enjoyed. The kids are 11 and 16 hardly kids, however they had a great time. I advise anybody if you have a problem, call maintence no matter how small you think it is. We were not able to use the downstairs for the first four days due to it being very cold. We were not happy at all, the 11 yr old was sleeping with everyone but where he wanted to because of the coldness in the basement, however we called maintenance and there was something wrong with the heater. They fixed it within minutes. We definatley enjoyed the basesment after that and him sleeping in his own bed. There were other issues as well that were fixed. The hot tub was a enjoyable treat a couple times a day. My only complaint is the pots and pans if you plan on cooking take your own. They stick very badly....
A guest from Elk Grove Village, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2011 We had a wonderful vacation enjoying the beautiful fall colors in the Smoky Mountains. Our cabin and grounds at Elk Springs were better than we could have imagined. This was our first trip to Elk Springs Resort and will definitely be back.
Beth L. from Leamington, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2011 Our experience at Blackjack was great! The internet advertising was exactly what was promised - sometimes you just don't know, but our expectations were certainly met. Only negatives: clean was surface clean - there was pet hair on the furniture and other things you would see but not at first glance. Also, our washing machine did not work so no laundry service. Maintenance looked at it, but could not repair. Management did not call to address the situation. Cleaning staff left an envelope looking for a tip. I expect that I paid enough for the cabin to be clean on arrival.
Lawrence I. from Taylors, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 This is our 3rd year at Elksprings Resort, and our 2nd stay at 'Blackjack'. We love this 's is sooo peaceful and yet it's so alive with all the amenities offered. Love the hot tub, pool table, big screen, fireplace...two decks...perfect!
A guest from Spring, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2011 We had an awesome stay in our cabin. It was clean, well stocked and the beds were very comfy. We could not get water from the fridge, we called and they were there right away to fix it. We would like to return in the fall and have told our friends about Elk Springs.
Kim T. from Mt Juliet, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2011 This is my second stay and I have to say that it was wonderful for the second time. I was worried about the Blackjack cabin being to close to my neighbors and being able to see them. Not the case. This cabin was absolutely gorgeous. Very big and comfortable. Management staff (Dan) was so willing to help me out after my husband rented a cabin up in the middle of nowhere. dan got me in at last minute and was so helpful. Not to mention this resort is absolutely gorgeous and close to downtown Gatlinburg. Away from the hustle and bustle but not too far away. I will definitely come back!
Richard M. from Puslinch, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 The parking for motorcylce was a little treacherous at the Black Jack cabin. Was great otherwise. Wish we could watch TV in theatre room not just movies.
Pamela D. from Dublin, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2011 We really enjoyed our stay at Blackjack and Elk Springs.MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS NOT ENOUGH PET FRIENDLY CABINS. I realize that some pet owners are not very responsible, but most like me are. I think you should have more pet friendly for small dogs under 25 lbs. The reason we stayed in a three bedroom cabins is because of the pet friendly,we really only needed a cabin for two.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Pam, we're trying to add more pet friendly cabins. We agree, most pet owners take the best care of cabins!
A guest from Madison, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2011 First I would just like to say that the customer service was so wonderful. I spoke with Dan and Heather and they both made it so easy that it made me relax and not worry. The cabin was in a perfect spot, not too close to town, but not too far out. Once we got inside, I was amazed at the beauty. It was actually a luxury log cabin and it had all the amenities that we needed. We have stayed in Gatlinburg several times but this was the BEST by far.
A guest from Grove City, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2011 My extended family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at blackjack. It was extremely clean, and although not the best view, it was very convenient to town. I would recommend adding an additional exterior light nearer to the gas grill. Our iron went bad, and no ssoner did I leave a message with maintenance, someone was at my door with a brand new iron. Wow! Great job.
Shari L. from Grand Rapids, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2011 The "only" thing I didn't like is that the spacing in some of the floorboards were so far apart a lot of dirt was in the spaces and it was very noticeable, it was gross to me and we all wore are shoes the entire time. Other than that I hope I get a chance to come again.
Terra L. from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2011 It was a beautiful cabin. We were allowed to bring our dog (with a reasonable pet fee). Close to the attractions in downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge that we went to. The cabin was stocked with all necessary items to feel at "home" for the week. Enjoyed sitting around hanging out at the cabin as much as going out. There was no landline phone in the cabin and I was a bit nervous,I had read other reviews that claimed there was no cellular service. I have Verizon and received cell service my entire stay without any problems. I definitely want to come again, maybe next time in early summer when it's not quite so cold, especially, since this place allowed my larger dog.
A guest from New Port Richey, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2011 We had a wonderful stay in the Blackjack cabin. The location was perfect and everything in the cabin was as wonderful as we expected.
Josh M. from Madison, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 This was the most amazing cabin and we couldn't have asked for more! Our favorite part was the privacy of where it was located as well as the hot tub.
Kim T. from Panama City, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2011 I loved the location but was not impressed with the beds were horrible. Also, the lower level was so cold that we could not use the media room or the bunk beds. We even bought a space heater to try and make the lower level warmer but that did not help. We had to pull the mattresses upstairs to the main level for the kids to sleep. I would recommend better mattresses and addressing the heat issue in the lower level.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Kiim. We've addressed the heat issue in the lower level. Sorry for the inconvenience, but he added more warm air supply ducts.
Thomas F. from Mobile, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2011 The Cabin was perfect there was 9 of us. The space was exactly enough. The hot tub only could hold about 5 or 6 people max. The house was clean and location was perfect except for it did snow most the time and it is really hard to get down the hills without sliding if you dont have a four wheel drive car or chains on your tires so we got snowed in a couple of times. The only bad thing is most of our cell phones had no service up there which should be expected on around a mountain. Maybe they should of had a phone at least that we could of used in the cabin for that kind of situation. But the cabin was perfect, clean, no maintenance issues, staff was very nice. The ski resort is about 15 min and downtown is only like 10 min away which there is tons to do downtown. Would definitely stay again and would like to go again next year.
A guest from Cooperstown, NY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2010 The Blackjack cabin was beautiful just what we were looking for in a getaway. We soon found out we were surrounded by college kids everyone. They were totally trashed, beer in each hand up all night screaming and hollering. Even during the day when we went for a walk it was very intimidating. They we all out throwing broken beer bottles at each other. We felt like a prisoner to our cabin. I emailed the manager. Got no response, no sorry, no nothing. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is not the place for you. If you like to cook, bring your own pots and pans. I'm a clean freak and There was no dustpan or vacuum. It is very easy to dirty a floor but for 5 days we had to walk around it.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Brigette, sorry for experience during your stay. I don't think your review is fair, however, given that we did speak several times and did contact you with solutions to your concerns - which you were uninterested in.We definitely owe you an apology for all the noise during your stay. We did have a college group that stayed with us last year and we had absolutely no problems. When they returned this year it was a different story. We are no longer permitting college groups to stay at our cabins anymore.
A guest from Ravenna, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010 We had a BLAST while staying with Elk Springs and we had so many memories. Our cabin was very clean and felt like home immediately. We were able to bring our dog with us and did not have to worry about her. There is a fantastic arts community right down the road and we spent a lot of time at Alewine pottery picking up beautiful Christmas gifts. Everyone in Gatlinburg was super friendly and we are already planning to re-visit for our anniversary!
William H. from Lewistown, PA. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010 Everything was great. A motion light would be nice on the entry door. When we got back to the cabin after dark, could not see to punch in the code. We were instructed to call a number at checkout. Tried but it would not work! LOved the cabin and the area. We'll be back.
Tim P. from Canton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 Just a suggestion, the pool table upstairs is not a good idea. It was extremely hard to shoot pool due to the small area / walls in the way. Suggestion, maybe air hockey table or ping pong.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals It is a little tight, but many of our guests enjoy pool more than they enjoy foosball, so we decided to go with the pool table. thanks for your feedback!
Rebecca K. from Carriere, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2010 This cabin was Wonderful ! Everything was amazingly clean, and I was impressed that even the towels smelled 'like Home'...I had a hard time was that cozy ! I could really see myself living in that cabin, it was perfect. We were a little disappointed with the location of the pool table. It was in the upstairs loft, and it was too big for the space. You couldnt really use it because the pool sticks hit the walls. Im thinking maybe an air hockey or foose ball table would work better up there for that particular space. Also, not too much space outside for the puppy to potty, but luckily for me, I have a small dog and it worked out fine. I would definitely love to come up around Thanksgiving and bring the family. We only stayed the weekend, but would love to come back and extend my stay ! We had a great experience with Elk Springs Resort ! Thank you :)
A guest from Muncie, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 We arrived in the middle of the night and it was so nice that someone thought to leave all the lights on for us, nice touch. Overall, our stay was great, but the condition of the sofa sleeper in the lower level needs some attention. It is in poor condition and should probably be replaced.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Debra, thank you for your feedback. Yes, the sofa was recently damaged and we have replaced the sofa mechanism.
A Vacation Without an Elksprings Cabin, is Like a Day Without Sunshine : )
Lawrence I. from Taylors, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 Exc. cabin, more than we expected. 3 levels, pet friendly, pool table, open and clean. Did need maintenance for minor issues. Immediate response, lit pilot light on fireplace, freshened garbage disposal, put batteries in remote to theater room projector. Everything we needed, blender, coffee pot, towels, linen, extra blankets/pillows...Trash receptacle are now steal cages, no bears lurking. Hot tub was very relaxing, grill cooked our steaks to perfection, & free phone service "out" : ) 7 of us in cabin and we had LOTS of space, sleeping on all levels. Looking forward to our 3rd visit!
Tom H. from Keller, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2010 Prior to arrival, I was given inaccurate information regarding parking. We had two couples, each with a pickup pulling a motorcycle trailer. We were told there was room to park both pickups w/trailers at the cabin. There was barely room for one. The parking was on a steep incline which made loading/unloading very difficult. The pics on the website do not accurately depict the layout of the outside of the property. However, if you are visiting in a car, the place was great! The cabin is very well kept and very clean. It would have been helpful to have instructions on the operation of the big screen projector and the remote controls. It took us quite a while to determine enough functions to even view a movie. The management responded quickly to our request to eradicate several wasps nests.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Our max grade on the property is 12%, which is the new building code for developments and the steepest part is right in front of Blackjack. (note 12% is not very steep, especially given what people are used to in some of the older resorts). We did have plenty of space for the vehicles and I noticed you put it in our overflow parking which was a short walk away. Sorry for the confusion, but we do have plenty of parking. If you had the small to medium size trailers they would have fit perfectly, but with all due respect, the trailer was a car trailer and was huge (25+feet), so I think you'd be hard pressed to find a spot anywhere. But I do know that we still easily accomodated you.
Crystal T. from Shelbyville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 We were able to spend time and do things together, yet the property was large enough that we had plenty of space to spend some alone time as well.The cabin was absolutely fantastic, with everything you could wish for and more.The only issue I noticed was that the place really needed to be dusted, beyond just the table surfaces. The corners and pictures, etc. had lots of cobwebs. I'm sure the cleaning staff is in a rush between 10AM and 3PM on any given day, but I was surprised to see that lack of attention to detail in such a spendid home. Otherwise, everything was perfect!! We plan to be back!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Crystal, yes we do apologize for the dust and cobwebs, we were really busy and wanted to get you checked in. But we've gone ahead and done our Fall Cleaning on the cabin and remedied the problem. Hope you stay with us again - all returning guests get 10% off over advertised specials!
Donna H. from Texarkana, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2010 Cabin was nice and clean. There was plenty of room and comfortable beds. Kitchen was missing a few key dishware items and the phone didn't work. A little closer to the neighbors than I would have liked. Our neighbors were rather noisy. Also, not the picturesque view of mountains I expected. Not really any view at all.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Donna, this cabin is classified as wooded view, so you're not going to get a view of the mountains. For future bookings, we do have all our cabins categorized as mountain view or wooded view.
Shelly G. from Ashland, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2010 The cabin was beautiful and we had a wonderful time!! Well highly recomend Elk Springs Resorts to anyone!! Will rent from again on our next trip down.
Vernon and Pamela D. from Dublin, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2010 The resort was great and the cabins are beautiful. The staff at Elk Springs were very nice and we loved the express check-in . More pet friendly cabins would be nice.
Terri L. from Brighton, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 Black Jack was far beyond our expectations. The cabin was clean and stocked with necessities to make your vacation spot complete. My Husband and I enjoyed our own king size suite on the 2nd floor and my sister in law and her husband had their own on the first floor. It was very private and relaxing. We spent our days sight seeing and our evenings in the hot tub. We cooked most of our meals in, but found a great restaurant right down the street. I cannot wait to go back. This was the best place that I have ever stayed. PS - the pictures didn't show it but there is a pool table!
A guest from Plymouth, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2010 We enjoyed our stay at Blackjack, however there were some cleanliness issues that need to be addressed. The maintenance person told us we were in the owner's cabin and if that were really the case then he needs to visit it himself & take a look. There was pain on the deck & an area of the cabin exterior, our bedding appeared to be dirty still when we arrived so we washed ourselves & when attempting to locate a lost slipper we looked under the beds & I would wager that the cleaning staff is just sweeping everything under there by the look of it all. I would also suggest that the pool table be moved downstairs instead of on the balcony. We were unable to play because of lack of room to make many shots, and if a ball jumped the table you better watch out below! Other than that, any issues we had were addressed immediately and they are very nice. We may go back ourselves at some point, and I'd probably recommend to a friend.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Bobbi, thank you for the review. Our sheets sometimes are wrinkled when we don't run them through our sheet press / folder, but they are always clean. We appreciate the feedback and you get an extra 10% off on future stays as a repeat guest.
A guest from Evansville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2010 The cabin was great, and the staff was easy to get ahold of and responded quickly when we needed something. The only problem we had was that many of the light bulbs needed to be replaced, half dozen to a dozen.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Chris, thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the burned out lightbulbs! We check them prior to check in, however, they all tend to burn out around the same time as we normally change them in batches. We have onsite maintenance so that when and if you have a problem we can respond quickly. Thanks again for the comments!
A guest from Downingtown, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2010 Great Cabin, great location! Very friendly and helpful staff. I would stay here again, however sound really carries throughout the cabin. Makes it hard for others to sleep if people are talking in another room, even on a different floor.
Tracie P. from Stevens Point, Wisconsin recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2009 We Stayed at the Blackjack cabin for a Family Christmas get together. We had a wonderful time. I will recommend Elk Springs Resort to everyone.
Jason R. from Lima, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2009 This was the perfect get away for me and my family. We stayed in Blackjack in early December 2009 and we really enjoyed the amenities of our cabin. I have two young girls and they really liked the bunk beds and the hot tub. We also really liked the theater room and got a membership at Food City so we could rent movies and get discounts on food. I would reccomend this cabin to anybody.
Jeremy W. from Seneca, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2009 This was our families first true vacation and we truely loved it. Clean,pently of space and very convenient to all local attractions.
Jack D. from Crestwood, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 We loved our stay at Blackjack! Our favorite thing was the theater room! The cabin had beautiful woodwork! We were pleased that the Master bed was king-size (a little too firm for our liking, however) In fact, had the bed been more comfortable, we would have stayed another night or two! We are used to the Helen, Ga. area where each cabin is secluded. We did not care for the 'subdivision neighborhood' of cabins that seem to be the case throughout Gatllinburg, not just Elk Springs. Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay, and if we visit this area again, we would return to Elk Springs Resort. Thanks for the wonderful service!!!! Jack and Carrie Crestwood,KY
Rhonda S. from Springville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009 The cabin was beautiful. Nice furnishings but the beds were a little hard. The only thing I think needs to be addressed is the jetted tub in the bathroom. The jets were filthy inside. When sitting in the tub taking a bath you could see around & inside the jets they were black & very dirty - may need to find another cleaning crew. Other than that we really enjoyed. The cabin looks just like the pics on the website & is pretty convenient for a cabin location.
Willie Y. from Tuskegee, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 Overall our stay was very nice! I really enjoyed the beautiful cabin but we were disappointed that we did not have a pool table and the nice sauna shower.
A guest from Boynton Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2009 This place is awesome it looks just as it is pictured, the staff was always there whenever we needed anything. It was top notch I would go back again anytime. The only problem was there was no phone in the house and no cell phones work up there, which was perfect for our honeymoon but in case of an emergency or is the bears got into the cabin...5 star rating!!!!!!!
A guest from Charleston, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 My only complaint was that there was no TV tuner hooked up to the video projector, so we couldn't put the football game on the big screen. That would have been awesome. DVD looked great though. The cabin was beautiful, clean and comfortable.
Property Manager Response:
Thank you for the feedback. Given the longevity of the bulbs we are unable to hook up the cable to the projectors. We're glad you enjoyed the movies, the theater rooms are a big hit with everyone!
Amanda G. from Clyde, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2009 There was noone on the property to talk to from elks springs. Every dish had grease all over them. There were dirty towels and sheets in the wash! It was just plan out dirty! It would have been nice to actually talk to someone that was in charge or that actually worked for that particular cabin.
Hans-Juergen B. from Buende, NRW recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2009 As german visitors we had chosen the elksprings resort to relax for 5 days after we had travelled the US from Florido via NC to Tennessie. Good choice! We found an absolutely quiet resort ,a big fully equipped cabin with jacuzzi, home cinema, AC and much more amenities only 10 min ride to Gatlinburg downtown. And all was topped by the visit of a bear at 11.00 pm while we were chatting about the day. For heavens sake the bear was as afraid as we were, when he saw us and ran away. All in all a great stay in the Smokies!Hans-Jrgen B., NRW, Germany
Mary B. from Williamston, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2009 The property offered was worth every penny. The cabin was beautiful and well-equipped for a week's stay. Any maintenance issues that arose (e.g. pilot light not on in fireplace; sliding glass door stuck) were dealt with immediately and efficiently. My only issue was that there appeared to be paint splatters on the main deck which detracted from the beauty of the cabin and should be removed prior to the next guest visting. All in all, a wonderful vacation, a great sanctuary after a day in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge and if you are not relaxed after your stay, it is your own fault.
William B. from Ellisville, MS does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2009 Our stay in Blackjack was riddled with challenges. We were very misled as to the amenities and quality of the property. The home theater was rather useless and was not a theater room like the other cabins but more or less just a projector retrofit in the basement and was out of adjustment until a day before we left. There is in fact NO pool table in this cabin even tho it states all cabins have one. The hot tub provides a wonderful view of the nieghboring cabin and parking area (if your looking for privacy in a hot tub look elsewhere!) and every time a car came up the road at night you would get blinded like a deer in headlights. We had to replace 5 lightbulbs on arrival which left 2 lamps still not working. If you notice a smell when you come in just flush water down the kitchen sink for about 20 minutes. Over all it is a very nice looking cabin with a good layout but just wasnt what we expected based on our past visits to other luxury cabins. Perhaps the other cabins at Elk Springs are much nicer?
