Recent Review

About the Owner

I grew up in Kentucky in a large family long before computers and video games; it was a time when games like “kick the can” and playing in the old creek behind our house represented the sum total of my worldly ambitions. Every year we would go on a family vacation. We would all jump in the station wagon and fight over who had to sit on the “hump” while dad drove to the campground. We spent a week camping in some amazing national park – building fires, roasting marshmallows and singing campfire songs. It was fantastic time to be a kid and I would not trade those memories for anything.

Growing up during those times I learned that no one owes you anything in life and that hard work and honesty will get you far. My word and handshake was my bond.

It is with that attitude that I rent this cabin. I understand that you work hard for your money and I respect that. I will strive to give you the best possible value, vacation experience and enjoyment during your stay.

Simply Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is AMAZING!! I cannot wait to come back! We had 11 people traveling with us and there was so much room! The whole cabin is clean and beautiful. I cannot say one bad thing about it! The property is very clean. Pool was wonderful. Highly recommended this cabin! We had a last minute issue the day before we came and Deanna and her staff helped us and resolved it quickly. (An issue on our end, not the cabin) We will be back!!!

Thank you!

Wonderful cabin for families. Great location for hiking and sightseeing.

  • 5 of 5

This we our family vacation including my husband, 4 children/spouses and 5 grandchildren under 5 yrs. we had a wonderful time hiking and seeing the sights. Childhood Memories was the perfect cabin for us. The kitchen was stocked and we loved the built in gates on the stairs 😊򒠠Easy to keep an eye on the little ones. The views of the Smokey Mts were beautiful. Of course the theater room was awesome! The community pool was a great help to expend some kid energy.

Thank you Deanna, you have a great cabin that is kept in excellent condition. It is just as you have described it. All of the information you send me was extremely helpful especially the short cuts around the traffic. I appreciated the emails you sent welcoming us and the personal phone call to check if everything we ok.

Childhood memories and Adult memories

  • 5 of 5

The Childhood Memories cabins was wonderful. The description in the listing was right on. In fact, our experience was even better than our expectation. The views from the balconies were incredible. The cabin was clean and very well stocked with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and modern and there were plenty of towels and a hair dryer in each. The kitchen was extremely well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, cutlery and cooking equipment. For our family of 12 there were enough dishes for two meals without needing to wash everything immediately. The kitchen was also clean and the stove and dishwasher were both in excellent condition. The refrigerator was large and the automatic ice maker was a nice feature. The cabin has an incredible theater room with a huge projection screen TV with state of the art sound and video equipment. Our family enjoyed watching movies. While we brought some of our own movies, the cabin is well stocked with a variety of adult and chidrens movies. The theater even has a karaoke machine. The hot tub on the balcony was clean and inviting and provided a nice place to relax and take in the view. The balconies were both covered so you could watch the clouds and rain. The only issue we had was the A/C on one of the floors acted up but it is wired and sent a message to the owner who called us to let us know it was malfunctioning and that she had sent a repair person who appeared a few hours later and fixed it (a clogged drain had caused condensation to backup into the unit). THe entire process from renting, arriving, using to checkout was very easy and the owner was very helpful in providing directions for everything from how to operate the door lock and garbage disposal to where the grocery stores were, to things to do. All in all, this was a wonderful family vacation and we would highly recommend the cabin as well as Deanna, the owner. Note- the Ripley's aquarium is a wonderful family activity. We also enjoyed Dollywood waterpark and would highly recommend getting a Retreat if you have young ones.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Cliff for taking the time to write a review and share your experience with future guests. So glad to hear your family enjoyed the cabin so much. I appreciate the positive feedback on the state of the art movie theatre. So many cabins stick a TV in room and call it a home theatre and I really try to convey to guests how this is not that and this a true movie theatre experience. So I really appreciate your comments on that. Thank you so much for your business - I sincerely do appreciate it and hope to see you again on a future visit! Deanna

Great family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin. Plenty of room for all 13 of us. Spectacular views. The kids loved the movie theater room. We had plenty of space for all of us and didn't feel like we were all in top of each other. Cabin was clean and had pretty much everything we needed.

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful cabin the only way it could have been better is if the lightening had not hit the electronic equipment in the house and even then she worked hard to get it fixed. Deanna gave us an extra night. Our 18 month old granddaughter had a blast as did the 2 twelve yr olds and the eight yr old. The gates by all the stairs was wonderful for the baby. Great vacation home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Lori for taking the time to write a review and share your experience with future guests. I'm so glad to hear you had such a wonderful time. Yes, the lightening strike was a real crazy act of nature that destroyed over $25,00 in electronic equipment. I appreciate your understanding for the intrusion during your stay as we had to get the electronics replaced. Thank you so much for your business - I sincerely do appreciate it and hope to see you again.

Location

From the Owner

Sherwood Forest is perfectly located just 1 1/2 miles from the Parkway to give you the isolation and quiet you want while being close to all the action. There are tons of activates within a few miles of the resort - Dollywood, restaurants, outlet mall shopping, zip-lining, go-carts, putt-putt golf, etc. It also sits right on the edge of the park allowing easy access. Gatlinburg is also a quick 5 miles away so you can go there for a day trip. Smoky Mountain national park is a short 5 mile drive. The Smoky Mountains are an amazing place - hiking trails, drive-to overlooks, biking, and animals galore. In recognition of the park's unique natural resources, the United Nations has designated Great Smoky Mountains National Park as an International Biosphere Reserve. I am sure you will fall in love with its beauty the same way I did.
