We have rented from Barbara and Abel for several years and this year we decided to go to their latest addition Dances with Wolves. Thistle cabin is beautifully decorated. It's surrounded by trees, you feel like you are in a giant treehouse. The views of the mountains can be seen from the back of the house as well as from the front. The bedrooms are well appointed and the bathrooms are nicely decorated and spacious. There's a game room for the kids with an XBOX gaming system, my kids loved it! The kitchen is amazing. There's plenty of cabinets and it is fully equipped to prepare an extravagant dinner. There is seating in the dining table for 14!!! The hot tub is spacious and wonderful after a fun day of activity. There are many activities to do in the area. We ran out of time before running out of things to do. We went hiking, whitewater rafting, ziplining, biking, alpine coasting, shopping and to a couple of shows. The location of the cabin is wonderful. There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. With our GPS we discovered several ways to access the cabin from different roads. Bárbara and Abel have done a wonderful job with the cabin. The renting process as well as the security deposit refund was effortless. We can't wait to come back to this treehouse again!
The house is gorgeous with a wonderful setting very close to Pigeon Forge and has an impeccable view. The house is very roomy yet cozy at the same time. I went with my family and we had an amazing time going to see shows and sight seeing. Barbara was very attentive of us which is much appreciated especially since we aren't from the area. I would definitely stay again next summer!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Hope you visit us again soon.
My family and I, visited Pigeon Forge Tennessee stayed in Dancing with Wolves cabin, it was the most beautiful cabin ever, the layout was perfect, the Owners, made you feel like Family, it was easy access to attractions, yet peaceful, comfortable and relaxing, looking forward to staying again next year.
Two families stayed in this cabin - we had 4 adults and 3 kids. Great bedroom for the kids with double bunk beds and their own bathroom! Really spacious family room that allowed for all us of to be in the same room, but do different things. The cabin was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and we only had to travel about 7-8 minutes to get to Pigeon Forge - which was fantastic for us - everything we did for the week was in Pigeon Forge. We didn't use the hot tub, as the weather was pretty warm while we were there. This cabin is really nice - I would definitely recommend it!
We really enjoyed the layout and location of this cabin. You don't feel like you're on top of other cabins. Loved walking the roads around the cabin. Loved the fire pit and sitting by the fire at night. The only take away was the spiral staircase to get upstairs and the sulfur smell in the water. Overall it was a great stay and we would love to stay again.
Monica, Thank you for taking the time to review the cabin. I'm glad you thought our place was great!! There's not much we can do right now about the spiral staircase, but we have contracted a company who will be installing a brand new water filtration system to get rid of any remaining sulfur smell in the water.
Dances With Wolves was the perfect mountain getaway! The location was great, a very well kept property, great layout, plenty of bathrooms, comfortable beds, loved the huge dining table, porches, fireplace, hot tub, & the fire pit/grilling area!! Thank you for a great place to celebrate a birthday getaway!!!
This was a perfect Pre-Thanksgiving 3 night stay with our 2 daughters, their hubbies and Grandkids. Location was great, not too far from town. Scenery was beautiful from every room. Loved our early morning coffee looking at the views from the picture windows. Was beautifully decorated. Downstairs was so roomy and nice for everyone to be together without being crowded. Master bedroom was nice and large with a private balcony. Would have loved to use the fire pit, but too dry and no burn law. Very nice area made to hang out around it though. Parking was great and plenty of space. My daughters were right when they said I had found a gem of a place for us to spend our family time together in a cabin. Have a new love for furnishings with wolves. It had everything we needed for a large family. Thanks for sharing it with us.
This cabin was everything we expected from seeing the pictures of the cabin and more. Everything was clean, well maintained, as well as recently remodeled. The views from the porches was beautiful and we hardly noticed the other cabins in the area. The owner made sure everything was alright. We prepared and ate most of our meals at the cabin enjoying the time together. We went to the aquarium in Gatlinburg and found it to be outstanding. Then, of course, there had to be the shopping trips into Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We found a great restaurant north of Pigeon Forge, Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant, that also included The Apple Barn and Cider Mill, a gift shop and much more. We definitely recommend this cabin and destination to our family and friends.
Everything from the property owner interaction to the accommodations was flawless. I could not think of one thing that was missing from the cabin. The beds were so comfy, cabin was so clean, no complaints whatsoever. Thank you, for letting us stay in your cabin. We can't wait to go back!
Our family had a magnificent time. The cabin was awesome. Everything seems new. First, it was huge. The pictures do not do it justice. It is a log mansion. The space, windows and amount of light make every minute worth savoring. The decor really enhanced our mood. My wife and I loved waking up and drinking our coffee while gazing out the picture windows. The immense fireplace at the center is simply decadent. Second, the rooms were perfect. My Mom's condo is smaller than the master bedroom. The double bunk beds were a hit with our teenagers. Outside, the views of the Smoky Mountains were grand, as were the views of Pigeon Forge. Again, you feel like you are on top of the world. The cabin is situated what seems to be the top of the mountain. Despite this fact, it took us no more than 15 minutes to reach the parkway and enjoy food, shopping and entertainment. I have made plans to return with our extended family.
What a glorious cabin. I came up to Tennessee with my family and what can I say this place is huge. The rooms were great and the beds were very comfortable. The best feature was the fire place at the center of the cabin. We loved turning it on during the cold winter nights we spent here. This cabin is definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at. Will definitely return with some friends and family next year!
Large family style dining tables next to the abundant seating area in the living room. Whether playing pool, sitting on the large hearth (even though it was too warm to crank up the fireplace), relaxing in front of the large screen or preparing the meals in the kitchen, we always felt together which we enjoyed very much! Easy drive up to this beautiful cabin and it's a quick drive to all the parks and activity going on nearby. We didn't play with the Xbox although there was a great setup to do this in the open loft area. The cabin was extra clean and decorated beautifully in the cabin-rustic feel! Plenty of parking for our 4 families and great outdoor space for swinging and rocking. We didn't use the outdoor spa, (b/c we forgot our swimsuits) but it was super clean. If we ever decide to return to Pigeon Forge, we would definitely check back with "Dances With Wolves"! There is nothing negative to say or report about our stay. Our family had a great time!!
The cabin was beautiful and very clean. My handicapped father was able to get around just fine in his motorized scooter. We were very sad when we had to leave
Thank you for taking the time to review our cabin. I am so glad that you enjoyed it. Hope you keep us in mind for your next visit.
Everything was just like in the pictures. Kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need. The 360 fireplace was awesome. The hot tub was perfect on the cold nights. Barbara was quick to answer any questions we had and offered great suggestions on what to see while we were there. Will definitely book again in the future.
This cabin is amazing! Pictures are right on target! The kids and grandkids already want to come back. Great location too! Pool table hot tub and Xbox kept the kids occupied. The kitchen was so nice. We had everything we needed to cook breakfasts in. Sitting on the porch with our coffee in the mornings was so relaxing. Grilled out one nite and laughed and danced and made so many memories. Thank you Barbara for all your help too!!!!
We rented this cabin for a multiple family vacation. The size of the cabin worked perfectly for grandparents, adult children and grandkids. At first glance, this cabin looks wonderful however; it has not been maintained well. The cabin was not very clean.... we had to sweep the floors when we arrived. We were not able to use the hot tub - it did not appear to have been cleaned in some time. The whirlpool tub in the master suite also was neither functional nor clean. The tile in the showers –especially the floors and corners were dirty with soap scum. We also had to call about the upstairs air conditioning twice and a new unit had to be installed mid-week. When we first lit the grill outside, there was a grease fire – the grill was very dirty. There were nails sticking out of the deck boards so we had to be very careful letting the children out on the decks. The outdoor fire area wonderful though. The views were fantastic. If this house had been maintained a little better, we could have had a much better experience.
Letitia, I am very surprised to hear about all of your comments (except the AC). You did not make us aware of any of these issues during your stay. As you can see from prior reviews we strive for guest satisfaction and 5 star reviews. Had you informed us of any cleaning issues we would have corrected the problems immediately. Also please note that our hot tubs are drained, sanitized and treated after each guest departure. We are sorry to hear that you encountered these issues and we will address them with our cleaning crew.. As far as the AC is concerned...it was unfortunate that it brokedown to the point of it needing to be replaced. We ordered the new unit and had it installed as quickly as we could.
Dances with Wolves is exactly as featured in the photographs. It was the perfect location on top of a secluded mountain but very close to downtown Pigeon Forge. The spacious cabin gave us room to move about easily and there were lots of private areas as well. We were impressed from the moment we drove up the driveway.
Beverly, So Happy to hear that you found our cabin had the perfect location for your trip to Pigeon Forge. We thank you for taking the time to review our property and hope you visit us again soon.
Amazing cabin. Best I've ever stayed in. It has a hot tub, a jacuzzi, a pool table, an electronic fireplace, a fire pit, two DVD players, and more tvs than I can count. Also a beautiful kitchen with a big dining room table. Everything was clean and well organized. Would definitely stay again.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cabin. We strive for 5 star reviews and are very glad you felt it was "so good you didn't want to leave". Please visit us again soon.
This was a great stay for us. It is secluded with other cabins visible,but not close enough to where we were ever disturbed. It has horseshoe pits,and enough room for one to bring their own outdoor activities,we brought ladderball. The fire pit is nice and has room for a good amount of people. And enough woods to go find some firewood. The grates on the grill were dirty but we cleaned them. We ran out of propane, but contacted the owner and had some delivered promptly early the next morning. Plenty of eating,sleeping,and just plain lounging around room. Everything worked fine,appliances and such. It is handicap accessible,the only issue we had is with that the jacuzzi tub is upstairs,as we are caregivers and we wanted to put our client in the tub but couldn't get him up the stairs. Xbox worked fine,as did the internet access and televisions,even through the rain storms we had.Pool table was in really good condition and you have enough room to play without walls and tables and such hitting the back of your cue while shooting. We even called (the owner) and extended our stay two days. I highly suggest contacting her and NOT going through The Homeaway Company,as they took $106 from us for nothing. The cabin is close to Krogers, Calhouns, The Island, and The Track at traffic light #3.Basically close to a lot of restaurants and attractions in that area. About a 12-15 minute drive to them,depending on traffic. If we get another good deal we will end up returning later this summer.
An old group of friends and I organize annual cabin trips to get together for a long weekend and this cabin was exactly what we needed. There is really only one good room for privacy so it may not be ideal for multiple couples, but there are tons of beds, bathrooms, and space. Beautiful views and not terribly far away from the tourist attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. My only negative of the cabin was a leak that appeared to be from one of the upstairs bathroom through the ceiling and right into the kitchen. We stopped using that bathroom and had no further issues. The owner said she was aware, but that they hadn't been able to find the cause. Ultimately, it didn't really affect our trip, but it seemed like the owner should have been a bit more apologetic/concerned. tl;dr small leak, but great cabin and well worth the price!
I'm glad you thought our cabin was great for a group - it sure is with the 3480 square feet of living space. We just recently stayed there and have added a 60 game arcade machine so now it will be even more fun for families. We finally think the small leak has been resolved. I apologize if I made you feel like this issue was unimportant. We take any issue seriously and try to make amends as soon as we have been advised. I hope you visit us again soon.
We enjoyed our stay tremendously! The cabin had all the things needed for a weeks stay and it was wonderful for all ages. Those who couldn't do the stairs stayed on the first level and the younger adults took over the upstairs. We made great memories and are already looking forward to our next visit !!! Thank you Dances with Wolves for the great mountain experience !!
Cabin is beautiful and roomy. Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to have their own space. Porches and views, firepit, hot tub, pool table, grill, washer and dryer, and video games were all used and enjoyed. The large table and plentiful parking make it easy for families to share the cabin. Only slight negatives were that for just a long weekend stay we had to buy some basics like dishwasher detergent and hand soap for each bathroom that could have been provided. Of course, we left them for the next guests. Also the road up gets pretty steep right before the cabin driveway. Overall, really nice place to stay. Not far from shopping and attractions.
Dances With Wolves is an exceptional cabin for your Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg vacation! We recently stayed for a week from June 26-July 1. Our group was comprised of three families - my in-laws, my husband and I, my brother-in-law and his wife, our 9 and 6 year old nephews and our 6 and 3 year old daughters. Every single person enjoyed our stay! We thoroughly enjoyed all of the cabin amenities - the hot tub, Xbox, satellite TVs, pool table, arcade game, Wifi, porch swings, washer and dryer, swinging chair in the living room, and so much more! Our children enjoyed sharing the room with the bunk beds and having "movie nights" where they would watch a movie in their beds at bedtime. We enjoyed their "movie nights" too as that let us adults sit around the beautiful dining room table and play games a little earlier than normal. All of the adults had our own spaces with bathrooms for everyone! My favorite feature of this house, as a parent with young children, was that I could see and hear where my children were at all times. That allowed them to feel like they had freedom and room to play and allowed me to truly relax. I can't say enough wonderful things about this cabin! You will be happy you chose to stay here ! 😄
Marla, Your review is what we strive for. We have put lots of love and effort into making our cabin comfy and pleasant for ourselves and our guests. I am glad you and your family had a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
My kids, grandkids, and I absolutely loved staying in this beautiful home. It is so spacious!!! The open concept with windows from the floor up gave us a magnificent view. The arcade was a hit with the kids as well as all the other games provided. House was close to all the sites and activities in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We really liked the seclusion this house provided. Thank you Barbara.
We had an unexpected visit to Pigeon Forge area as we had to evacuate for Hurricane Irma, we were blessed to find such a beautiful cabin with plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Beautiful views from all the porches with just enough privacy without being secluded! The cabin was very clean and you can tell it's been well maintained. All of the furniture and decor is up to date, perfect cabin feel in every room! Arcade game, pool table and game system area for kids in the loft, large kitchen table, plenty of room in the kitchen for multiple people cooking and cleaning. Hot tub very nice, outdoor fire pit area with grill worked out great for us as well. Large sitting area in the living room for everyone together as well. I have nothing negative to say about this cabin. It was a blessing! Only about 12 minutes from the parkway and not a bad drive back to cabin in the dark, only one what I would consider steep hill to get there but overall not scary as I usually am with steep hills! The owner was very nice and quick to respond, especially with the location where she was at was being affected by the hurricane as well. We will definitely stay here again as this has been the best spacious up to date with our kind of cabin style that we have rented yet. While this was not really a planned vacation for us we couldn't have asked for a better cabin to relax in and have our four boys and parents to enjoy as much as everyone has.
The cabin is beautiful, very well stocked with essential items, very spacious for a large group, loved having a deck on the front and the back, short distance to town. I would definitely recommend it. Very nice owners to communicate with.
We had a great time at this place. Fun games and activities, plenty of room, fire pit, perfect location to jump to pigeon forge. We will definitely stay here once again when we come back to the mountains!
Thanks for sharing your experience. We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Lovely, spacious, beautifully and warmly decorated cabin impeccably maintained and situated in a superb location that offers a private and peaceful secluded setting while being within short driving distance from the hustle and bustle of activity and sights that makes this area so special. Whether looking for quiet peaceful relaxation, entertainment, sightseeing or adventure this cabin fulfills it.
The cabin was beautiful, plenty of things indoors to keep adults and kids entertained, the privacy from other cabins was very appreciated, and the owners were very helpful and responsive. Would like to come back again someday.
Thanks for your feedback. We hope you can visit us again in the future.
We loved this house. It is furnished very nice and the kitchen has everything we needed and more. We have young Grands, so a high chair would have been helpful. The housekeeping drains the Hot Tub between each rental group (we are germ-a phoebes). Plenty of parking and privacy. Roads getting to the house caused concern on the wife's part. It would be questionable with ice or snow. Our suggestion: Buy the rental insurance. Would definitely rent again.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We have decided to not provide a high chair due to the many recalls on baby items. So sorry for the inconvenience.
This house is absolutely amazing! One of my favorite things about the house is the LARGE kitchen table! The kitchen is also fully stocked! The rooms are very nice and spacious too. We enjoyed the fire pit almost every night along with the fireplace inside! We visited the day after Christmas and we were pleasantly surprised that it was decorated with a Christmas tree! The house is located in a great spot close to shops, shows, Dollywood, restaurants, grocery store and other fun outdoor activities. We really enjoyed our family Christmas/New Years Vacation!
Janette, we're so glad you enjoyed your Christmas vacation at our cabin. We strive for guest satisfaction and your words are indicative that you are a happy guest. Thanks for sharing....
We had a great time staying at this cabin. All the necessities are provided. (Even sleds for the snow)
Chad, so glad you took the time to review our property. We try to stock it with what guests will need to have a memorable vacation. Hope you plan a visit again in the future.
We had such a wonderful time at this cabin. Everything was better than expected. The customer service from the owner was second to none. We especially enjoyed that the cabin had a bit of actual flat yard so the kids could run around outside. The fire pit put it over the top. We look forward to staying at this cabin again in the future!
Thank you for taking the time to review our cabin. And yes, we love the unique feature of this property of having a YARD. It is not commonly found in cabins. We're glad you enjoyed it. Hope you visit us again soon.
The cabin is beautiful . It’s very spacious and there’s plenty of things to do inside the cabin. I loved the big wooden dinning table where you can fit your whole group to enjoy a nice meal together. This is definitely a cabin I would come back to again .
Maria, I'm glad you enjoyed our cabin. We decided to put in a large dining table because sometimes the large properties only have seating for 8 when in fact you can sleep 12-14. This cabin allows the whole group to sit together to enjoy their meal. Thanks for the feedback
Our family stayed the weekend here and had a fantastic time! The layout of the main floor was really nice for everyone to be doing different things but allowing us all to be together. We used the fire pit every night and everyone enjoyed the pool table. The place has everything you need and the working gas fireplace was really nice since it was a cold weekend. We will definitely stay again sometime!
Judith, Thanks for sharing your experience at our cabin. We hope you visit us again in the future.
This cabin is awesome. Second year we took the kids and grandkids. So much fun! This cabin is perfect! Stocked with everything you may need! 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. Bunk beds for the kiddos. Sleeper sofa. Pool table hot tub. And the kitchen table is great for a big famiky. Very private yet so close to the island, the track, and the goats on the roof coaster. Three of our favorite things. The owner is so nice and always there to fix even the tiniest problem! The kids already want to come back to dancing with the wolves next spring break!!!
It's a pleasure to host your family for the second time. Thank you for taking the time to review our property and we definitely hope you make this a family tradition.
My family and I chose Dancing With Wolves and we were not disappointed. What a week, the cabin was everything we had hoped for. Love the open floor plan, spacious and beautiful. The Pigeon Forge area was a great vacation spot, so much to do for all ages. Definitely would return to the area and the cabin. Great family vacation.
It was a pleasure hosting your family at our cabin. We're so glad you thought it was perfect!!! Hope to see you in the near future.
We loved the house, but the towels and sheets smelled of cigarette smoke, and there were a few minor maintenance issues (no oven or hood light). But the space and location were great!
Katherine, I wish you would have advised us that the linens were not up to par and we would have replaced them immediately. We have already addressed this issue with our cleaners to make sure it does not happen again. And, you're right the location and the spacious yard make this cabin "great".
This is by far the nicest cabin we have stayed! We come to Tennessee yearly and this cabin is one we would come back to! Its clean and very roomy! The owner is super nice!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this great review. We love it there as well!!! Keep us in mind for future travels.
We celebrated our daughter and son in laws college graduations the outside patio,grill and decks were fantastic the large dining table was perfect to gather around and have fellowship
I'm glad you enjoyed family time at our cabin. We hope to host you again in the near future.
What a beautiful cabin-from the inside out-loved the spacious yard we brought our corn hole boards-sat out at the firepit -kids loved the hot tub! There is lots of parking and the cabin is out but yet not far from all the attractions! Very comfortable beds- spacious living room-loved the big kitchen table -big kitchen that we used everyday! we enjoyed the pool table! Just a few minor things -there were no kitchen towels or pot holders! And with us cooking everyday for 10 people we had a lot of trash which after 3 days the bins were full! I would suggest they pick up trash every 3-4 days ! Barbra was wonderful to work with-we had storms one nite and it done something to the hot tub-I sent her a message and she had the repair man out the next day! I would highly suggest renting this cabin! We have been vacationing in Tennessee for 13 years and wanted to share this experience with my brother-my sister and their families! We all had a great time and the kids will remember this trip forever-lots of laughs and family memories!! Thanks Barbra for sharing your cabin-dances with wolves! We loved it!!
We're so glad that your family enjoyed our cabin. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We hope you visit us again.
This was a first vacation in the Smokey Mountains for everyone in our group. We weren’t disappointed! The house was beautiful and the swing chair was quite a hit among us! There were a few minor things that needed maintenance, such as lights out around the home, and not all showers got hot water, but it was minor and didn’t disturb our stay. If we hadn’t seen all the fun things to do in Pigeon Forge, I think we’d have been content to spend all our time in the cabin. I think one of our favorite things was the location. It’s far enough away to feel peaceful and quiet, yet close enough that you can take a quick drive down to Pigeon Forge for fun or anything you need. Some of the trees interrupt the beautiful view this cabin has but I’m sure it’s even more stunning to see in the winter! We hope to come back again!
The theme of the cabin was great. We had two families and easily could have had a third and still be comfortable. There was something for everyone to do. Highly recommended for others!
Antonio, We appreciate your taking the time to review our cabin. We also love how spacious the cabin is. It's perfect for making family memories. Hope you visit us again in the future.
My family and I (13) of us stayed in this cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed the open floor plan of the kitchen/living/game room. Beds were very comfortable and not squeaky! There were separate air conditioning units for both levels which made it easy to control the overall temperature. The owners were right on to whatever we requested of them, and very pleasant and happy to accommodate us every way. Our stay in Pigeon Forge was the best, most comfortable one yet. Christine....

Christine, Thank you so much for sharing your experience! We're glad you had a wonderful time at our cabin. Hope you visit us again in the near future.
Communicative owner, the place was in great shape, perfect location to town while still feeling very remote & rustic. We couldn’t have asked for anything more - very happy that we stayed here & one of my favorite properties I’ve vacationed in when visiting the Smokys.
I am so glad to hear that you and your family had incredible experience at our cabin. Thank you for your awesome review. We hope you visit us again in the near future.
The cabin was very good and had everything you need. The pool table was a huge hit with the family as was the fire pit! A little secluded from the main roads but that is to be expected. I mean, you are in the mountains!
Thanks for the 5 star review. I'm glad you enjoyed our cabin. The pool table seems to be a hit every time!!! Hope you visit us again in the future.
What a wonderful cabin. Great location. Very clean with everything we needed. When we had a question, we had a great response from the owner. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. I would recommend this for anyone.
Thank you for your 5 star review. We appreciate you taking the time to write about our cabin. We look forward to hosting you and your family on your next trip to the area!!
My family loved Dances With Wolves! We were amazed at the large yard-- a rare find for a cabin in the Great Smoky Mountains! We spent 3 days here and one of our favorite things was spending time in the large living room by the fireplace, especially in the super comfortable swinging swinging papasan chair. :) The property was just as Barbara described and was clean and well-maintained. I was happy that the road to the cabin wasn't scary. The driveway for the cabin is just before the road appears to get steeper and curvier, meaning we were up high enough to enjoy gorgeous views, but I didn't need to panic whenever we were coming or going from the property--it's perfect! I highly recommend Dances with Wolves for families or groups who want to visit the Smoky Mountains and stay in a lovely cabin that is close to the action, but secluded enough that you feel that you are truly "getting away from it all." It was pretty cold when we visited, but the big yard with its fire pit and seating area would be perfect for guitar sing-alongs, toasting marshmallows, or telling some Smoky Mountain tall tales.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Dances with Wolves. And yes, the spacious yard is a rare find in the area. Hope you visit us again soon.

For years I've visited with friends the area of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg in Tennessee and have enjoyed it immensely. But this time it was a different story. I wanted to get the whole family together and went with my three sons (2 of whom are married), their wives and children. I cannot express how perfect this cabin became for this purpose. The area has developed immensely and now most of the cabins are pretty much close to each other. Dances with the Wolves cabin was exactly what I was looking for. It is fully equipped, beds are very comfortable and it was the perfect size to accommodate all of us. Another thing I liked was that once you reached the cabin, the driveway and ample parking area is flat and not slanted by the mountain. Also, stores and attractions are very close by. My grandchildren couldn't have had a better time. During the day they went went to the attractions nearby (which are quite a few) and at nighttime enjoyed the different video games in the cabin. I, on the other hand, stayed home only because it was so cold for me... I sincerely highly recommend this cabin if you have a large group. The pit on the outside of the cabin surrounded with benches was great! It didn't only keep us warm, but we enjoyed roasting smores, having a couple of drinks but, for me, I MOSTLY JUST ENJOYED THE WONDERFUL TIME OF SHARING WITH MY FAMILY! My smaller grandchildren had never seen snow and it happened on the second day of arrival. The little ones were all excited. I cannot close without mentioning that the owner, Barbara Hernandez, is an awesome person and it was a pleasure dealing with her. All in all, I sincerely suggest that you celebrate your next family reunion or larger group of friends at this very special cabin. Believe me, you won't regret it! Astrid Buttari, Miami, Florida Thank you, Barbara. We all had a wonderful time.
We had problems with the master shower and an awful rotten egg smell with the water. The owners were very accommodating and did their best to resolve the issues we had. Every time we called, they answered right away.
During you stay there had been torrential rains and flooding in the area and it affected our water filtration system. We apologize for the inconvenience, but all is working well now.
The cabin is absolutely beautiful! Stunning views, TONS of space, and plenty of parking. Close enough to neighbors and town, but still secluded. We loved the space! Will definitely be going back!
Tad, thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am so glad you and your group enjoyed your stay.
Our family had a great time here. This log cabin is close to everything from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg. We had a minor hiccup with the reservation but Barbara took care of us. Very good communication and customer service. When we arrived to the cabin and walked in we were in awe. It was very clean and well kept and my three girls were so excited. Everything functioned that we needed, however the master shower didn't get hot which was a little disappointing but there are other bathrooms that got very hot so not a big deal. The mountain views from the cabin were fantastic as that was something I was a little worried about. Photos don't do it justice! Most days were spent out and about doing activities, but when we came back to the cabin we enjoyed the fire pit & Jacuzzi tub then passed out shortly thereafter. Make sure you buy firewood as it is not provided. The Jacuzzi tub is emptied and refilled upon every reservation which is appreciated. The beds are comfortable and there is a TV in just about every room which is nice, but we didn't spend much time watching it. The fireplace in the center of the room is a great functional centerpiece. The couch was very comfortable and everything in the kitchen worked as needed. This was the perfect spring break for my Wife and three girls and look forward to coming back and spending time here when it snows.
Thank you so much for taking the tine to review our property. The shower in the master wasn't hot enough because we just remodeled the shower and they installed a "scald guard" so that kids would not get burned with the hot water. My plumber has since then adjusted it so that now the water is hotter. Hope you visit us again.
Getting away was peaceful. Hot tub was a well needed item, we loved it. The views were of mountains , There are other cabins in view so it is not secluded, if this is something other guest are looking for. The fire pit was nice but we didn't get a chance to use it. The fireplace on the inside was on a timer and it was an absolute hit with our elderly uncle, he stayed by it. The bed cover wasn't clean, their was hair in the comforter, The kitchen faucet needed a screen, when it was used , water sprayed everywhere. Overall it is a nice place to get away and relax.
This was our third spring break staying in this cabin. It was just as amazing as it was the first time! Our grandkids go immediately to the hot tub then the pool table. The kitchen is huge! We cooked breakfast in for the 7 of us each day and it was wonderful! We also sat around the fire pit making s’mores and hotdogs. Weather was great. Clingmans dome had snow this year. Barbara is the best landlord because anything you may need she responds immediately!!! For example we were getting ready to grill out and noticed the whole bottom of the grill had rusted out. She responded immediately with sincere apologies and the next day had a brand new grill delivered! Above and beyond what some people might have done. That’s why we keep going back. This cabin has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths so plenty of room and privacy for everyone plus a couple couches to sleep on too!! I highly recommend it for big families. Thanks for letting us use your cabin. ❤️
Our family vacation in the Smokies was enhanced by our “Dances with Wolves” vacation rental. There was plenty of room to spread out, and the large and pretty kitchen was well stocked except for pot holders. Teenagers and adults alike enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and games. Our contact, Barbara was helpful and responded quickly to our questions. Thank you. We would definitely consider renting this property again.
We had a wonderful family vacation at this spot. Absolutely LOVED the quality and comfort of this cabin!
So great to hear you absolutely loved our cabin. We're glad your family had a wonderful vacation. Hope you visit us again in the future.
We had 6 adults and 7 children 12 and under. This cabin was perfect. Each family had a private bath. Plenty of room indoors for kids to run off excitement and sugar highs! Owner was quick to respond to any question. Check-in was seamless. Very large open flood plan to keep a eye on kids at all times. To my surprise the hot tub was a Huge hit with kids while adults planned the next day activities. Would rent this cabin again.....
Thank you for your feedback. We're so happy to hear our cabin was perfect for your family vacation. Hope you visit us again in the future.
This cabin was large enough for our extended family to enjoy. We appreciated the large table so we could all eat together. We would suggest more lighting in the living area and in the bedrooms. Also blinds on the Windows in the upstairs bedrooms would allow guests to sleep in. Our greatest concern was the strong smell of sulfur in the water throughout the cabin. We realize this is a characteristic of well water, but it was very strong. We appreciated having the pool table on the same area as the living area so the family could hang out together. The ramp in the back was helpful so that our elderly family members could walk easily into the cabin.
I am glad you enjoyed the spaciousness of our cabin and our large dining table. I am so sorry to just now hear about your concern with the water at the cabin. You never advised us about this during any of your contacts with us. We have an excellent filtration system and it probably needed servicing. Had you advised us during your stay we would have taken care of it immediately.
