traveler reviews for this gatlinburg cabin rental

On Top of Our LIst

Review submitted: August 13, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2014

I could go on and on using many words to describe this property, but I will simply say it will exceed anything you can imagine. The views, the atmosphere, and the tranquility. Close to tourist activities yet feels like its your own home. Every question I had was received with a quick response by the owner. The process was easy and will come back again and again.

Owners response: I too could go on and on using many words

Simply.... A welcome review!

Thank You Very much for your kind words!!!

Totally not worth it

Review submitted: August 20, 2014   Date of arrival: April 11, 2014

My husband and I stayed at this property in April, and it fell far, far short of our expectations, especially considering the price. The property was not very well maintained inside or out - we had several plumbing problems (master shower leaked extensively into the bathroom below it, at least two sinks would not drain). I'm not quite sure how a 'live-in' owner could have missed these issues. The pictures on the site are also old - the outdoor decks and patios have not been treated kindly by the weather. The VRBO listing has since been updated to reflect 'seasonally available' big ticket items, but at the time we booked we were led to believe there was a fully functioning hot tub, sauna, and gas grill. The sauna only turned on once for us and then stopped functioning, the hot tub was slimy and wouldn't go above ~80 degrees, and the gas grill turned out to be charcoal (with no coals available and a long trip back to town to get some). When we brought up the grill situation to the owner, he suggested that we go out and buy him a gas grill and put it together, and that he would reimburse us for the grill. I'm not sure about you, but someone else's chores are the last thing I would think about doing on my vacation, especially when I'm paying for the privilege. It's hard to believe that this is billed as a 'bucket list' property and receives so many good reviews. I'm sure the owner will have lots of say in response to this (we've already heard every excuse in the world about the conditions we encountered) but I've vowed to myself not to read anything else from him - every dealing we had made my blood pressure go up further and further and my head almost explode. The only good things I can say are: the property was as secluded as a person could ask for, and the views were really lovely. I wouldn't recommend this property to anyone.

Owners response: What Makes the World Go 'Round?

Have you realized that there are some people you can't please? No matter what you do or what you try or how nice you are to them. You just can't please everybody.

Every year at TOTW Spring opens up to the beginning of a new year. TOTW supports many changes, some based on previous occupants requests, and others based on standard maintenance, and upkeep preservation.

Initially this rental request was denied, based on timing. A telephone conversation took place between the parties. The renter insisted on renting and to bring a pet. The prospective renter was completely and totally apprised of the ongoing construction and preservation. The renter sounded sincere and verbalized... a vacation was really needed!

In an effort to accommodate the renter, all maintenance and considering the circumstances, a special price was arranged for the stay, including no charge for the pet!

Quite simply; the numerous excellent reviews and quality stays, plus TOTW's 100% cleanliness rating from the TN Department of Health speaks for itself!

There are many categories of people from all walks of life. They all choose a path... The vast majority of individuals, couples and families are fantastic!

Notwithstanding, a flip of the coin will also turn up others who are threating, disrespectful, and fabricators.

“In Him we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

Review submitted: June 26, 2014   Date of arrival: June 14, 2014

Great place to stay! We loved the property. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans and spices, too. Some things we didn't even expect like the wine coolers. Very nice home. Get groceries before you come up because you won't want to go back down. It takes 25 minutes to go 3 miles. Very windy road! If you are driving and are afraid of windy roads and heights, get a different driver but still go. In almost every room of the house there is a place to enjoy. The decks and views are spectacular! We bonded and enjoyed every moment together as a family. We barbecued every night and watched the sunsets. The hot tub view was awesome and each day we played pool. Bring Cutter insecticide and flashlights in case you lose electricity. We did but didn't end up using the flashlights. Awesome home! Thank you, Dr. Bob!
