Property Reviews 
Rainbow Lookout
Michael K. from Crowley, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2016
Let me preface my stay in that it was very late notice. So, I was surprised to find much of anything available. With that said this particular cabin is OK but needs some changes. First of all, the lighting in the kitchen needs to be upgraded, can't see much. The bedroom upstairs could use a remodel. The bed actually is the worst part. Very old style with a wood canopy that completely blocks the ceiling fan...not to mention the mirrors on the underside of the canopy. The bathroom is so tiny and barely manageable. The bottom floor bedroom and bathroom are much better. The gameroom is pretty good. Had a great time playing foosball. The living room is very comfortable with a new sectional and the technology is good. Outdoor ammenities are OK and understand there is no view except for the trees. The driveway is nuts. VERY steep and a bit nerve racking but you get used to it.

Cherie M. from Cosentino Ct., SC recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016
Our stay at Rainbow Lookout was terrific. The cabin was just as pictured on the website. The property was clean and well maintained. Communication with customer service was impeccable. My husband left a very expensive camera at the cabin and housekeeping turned it in and management shipped it to us at our house. The cabin was conveniently located in the craft circle and in close proximity to downtown Gatlinburg. As the website states the driveway to this cabin is very steep but it did not pose a problem for our small SUV. I would definitely recommend this property!

Rainbow Lookout
Jennifer P. from Mount Pleasant, SC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016
The advertising for this property was misleading. It stated you need a four wheel drive vehicle in the winter. You need a small four wheel drive 365 days of the year! Our first experience with this property was one of fear. Our Ford explorer barely had room to make the turn up the driveway and the wheels spun to make it to the top. What was suppose to be a fun relaxing experience was a fearful one every time we had to go up the driveway. The wash machine shook the cabin and sounded like it was going to break apart! The game room was great for our kids.

Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals

Beautiful cabin but no view
A guest from Lebanon, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in April, 2016
Perfect sized cabin for a party of 4.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Rainbow Lookout is the ideal cabin if you are looking for seclusion. In creating the seclusion, the trees block out the view at the cabin. While this is perfect for many of our guests, others find that they are missing having a beautiful view. Please contact one of our friendly, experienced sales representatives when you are ready to start planning your next get-away. They will be happy to assist you in finding the best of both worlds. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will receive 10% off all future stays.

A great secluded getaway.
Michael B. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in January, 2016
We loved this cabin. The pictures really didn't do it justice honestly. The couch in the living room was completely different than the ones in the pictures, which is a good thing because it was a huge comfy leather reclining sofa. Super comfy. The game room was alot of fun and the hot tub was clutch. We enjoyed the fire pit everynight and grilled steaks on the grill right by the fire pit. There really is nothing we didn't enjoy about this cabin. If I had to pick one thing it would probably be the steep driveway but it was a non issue for us plus we knew beforehand about it so it's not like it was a secret. I'd highly recommend this cabin and I will personally probably stay here again in the future!

Birthday party? Book it!!!
Demetria S. from Clarksville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in November, 2015
The cabin was clean throughout. We went November 13-15th and the weather was fair. I had girls with me and they loved it. The driveway is steep so if you need tires, get them before booking this one. The bags weighed the suv down but low gear all wheel drive got us up. The location is great. The road that it is on is curvy but we only knew that because we passed it lol. It was my first time in a cabin and I enjoyed it. Everything we needed but food and toiletries were there. It was great. Not too far from attractions, shopping or food. Not on the main drag which I loved. We are going back this summer. I worked with Dan to get this trip together and he was great and very professional. Loved it!!!!

Fall getaway
Carol B. from Saylorsburg, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2015
Exceeded expectations. Only negatives were limited view off porch because the lot is not cleared and wet leaves on the steep driveway was scary. Maintenance man went above and beyond in securing us a place to store our truck and boat.

Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Thank you for your 5-star review, Carol. Coming to the Smokies and viewing the Fall colors, even with a limited view from this cabin, is simply breathtaking. We are glad we were able to accommodate your extra parking needs. The driveway to the cabin is quite steep and can be intimidating to some. We appreciate your business and your feedback and look forward to your return visit to Elk Springs Resort!

Rainbow Lookout October Stay
Dana L. from Greenwood, IN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015
We were very disappointed in our cabin experience. From the initial drive up to the cabin and throughout the remainder of stay, we were disappointed. We were told the drive was steep and it was to say the least. The issue is there isn?t adequate turn around area at the top of the drive. Inside the cabin was also a disappointment. The upstairs table fell apart when we set a stack of 3 small reading books on the edge due to a broken leg. This caused the table to crash resulting in a broken lampshade. The restroom toilets smelled of constant urine. Additionally, the rooms themselves were not very clean. My wife had to wash the blankets on the bed before we could sleep due to white stains on the underside of the blankets. There were several items under the downstairs bed from previous guests as well as a thick layer of dust. Lastly, there were wasps and some sort of animal in the upstairs bedroom. Maintenance supposedly came out and left us a can of wasp spray but no word on if they found the animal. We couldn?t sleep in the upstairs bedroom after that so we split the downstairs bedroom and the couch. We should have requested a new cabin from the start but thought we?d give it the benefit of doubt since we had stayed in Moonshiner?s Legacy in the past with no issues. I?m not sure we will be staying in the cabins again after this experience.

Family friendly retreat
Kevin L. from Brentwood, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2015
Very nice house. We were impressed to find out the house looked just like the pictures. The game room is located on the lower level, which provides good distance from the master bedroom. The appliances worked great, as did the hot tub. We would recommend this cabin with one exception, the driveway is very steep and we wouldn't recommend it if there was ice or snow in the weather forecast during your stay. Otherwise, great property.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Thank you very much for your feedback, Kevin. Rest assured that the staff at Elk Springs Resort would never jeopardize the safety of our guests during inclement weather. We don't get too much snow or ice here, but if driving up this driveway becomes too treacherous, we simply don't rent it out until it is safe to do so. We appreciate your business and hope you will return again one day.

Wonderful Cabin
Carrie J. from Richmond, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in October, 2015
The cabin looked exactly as advertised. It was perfect for a family of four. I had read the reviews and was concerned about the steep drive, however, we had no problems at all going up the driveway in my 2007 rav4. It was raining and we still did not have trouble and never had to engage the 4 wheel drive. We will stay with Elk Springs again when we return to Gatlinburg. We were very pleased with the cabin and the game room is a great place to try to beat your teens at air hockey!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Thank you for sharing your review with us Carrie and for mentioning the driveway. This is probably one of the steepest driveways at any of our cabins and you didn't have any problems navigating it even in the rain. Many of our guests simply are not used to the steep hills and winding roads in the Great Smoky Mountains and it has been a concern of others as stated in past reviews. We appreciate your business and hope you return for another stay soon.

Will Stay Again!
Natasha W. from Clarksville, Tennessee recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015
This was the best cabin I have ever stayed in around the Gatlinburg area! The price was great, granted it was a Groupon deal. I love the ease of the check in and check out. The cabin was pretty clean, the basement could've been swept better and we found a chip bag behind the dresser but overall spotless. We also had raccoon and possums visit but that's to be expected. I would absolutely stay again! One last thought, the "master style" bedroom has the most outdated TV! Luckily we were using everything else in the cabin we never had to use it!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us Natasha! We are pleased that you took advantage of our Groupon promotion and booked this cabin getaway with us. We would have welcomed the opportunity to correct these minor cleaning issues for you, as our housekeeping staff is on site and could have been dispatched to resolve these matters right away. The master bedroom tv is scheduled to be upgraded and we are glad this didn't affect your overall experience at the cabin.

Beautiful cabin, but not as advertised
A guest from Ham Lake, MN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015
First off, Rainbow Lookout is a beautiful, well maintained cabin. It was very clean, was well stocked, and is in a very central location and close to many activities. We had a great time during our stay. HOWEVER...-- The listing for the cabin said it had two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa. It had two bedrooms and a sectional with blankets and sheets sitting on top of it. There was no sleeper sofa -- and we had counted on having one for our group. -- The listing stated the cabin had a washer and dryer. It did not.-- Just a few days before our departure, we got a call where they mentioned the driveway was very steep. Holy cow -- that's an understatement! The first time up it was actually scary! You get used to it, but it's incredibly steep and not for the faint of heart. -- We had trouble with our alarm system, and called Elk Springs Resort about it and mentioned the sofa sleeper/washer & dryer issues. They said they would check on it and get back to us. They never did. So this cabin gets very mixed reviews from us. At the very least, the listing should be changed to correct its inaccuracies.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Thank you for your review Debra. First off, I would like to apologize for the lack of a sleeper sofa. The owners replaced the furniture a couple of weeks ago and did ask us to change the listing on the website, which we did. It was a complete oversight on our part to not have notified you that this amenity had been removed. We would have been happy to move you to a cabin to accommodate your entire party if you had called to tell us of your dilemma. As for the washer/dryer, I have no idea why you weren't able to find the stackable unit on the main level because that is where it is located. The only call we received from you was on 8/30 to report that you were unable to lock your cabin. We also called and left you a voicemail on 8/28 to check in to see how everything was going. Again, our sincere apologies for the inconveniences during your stay.

Sweetheart's Stay
A guest from Sacramneto, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015
Our intent was to stay in the cabin the entire weekend and that's exactly what we did! The view was beautiful and there was plenty to do to keep us busy. Just some tips on your arrival though. It's a very steep driveway so don't drive an old car. Also, be sure to crank the a/c and turn on the fireplace. The bedroom upstairs has mirrors on the ceiling but it'll be hot unless you cool it down first.

Good Cabin but Disappointing
Ben B. from Covington, KY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2015
The Good: Cabin was close to grocery & downtown G-burg. Plenty of room, but not huge & not as big as it looked in the photos. Jacuzzi in master was a nice touch. Hot tub worked perfectly. Cabin very private. Kitchen well stocked with everything you should need, even a slow-cooker. Perfect size for our group of 4. Wi-Fi worked well.The Bad: Myself nor the alt cell # received code to the padlock on front door via text as was advised. Had to contact office. Sketchy cell service from cabin. Driveway VERY steep & difficult to climb w/ 2WD vehicle, esp w/ any moisture on the ground. VW Jetta was able to climb, just a little tire spinning when damp. Full-on rain would have prevented making it up the slope. NO mountain views, you are basically in a tree house. Cabin is private, but closed in w/ trees & woods. Don?t use GPS to get to cabin. Ours took us off Smoky Mtn Pkwy b/w Pigeon Forge and G-burg via scenic route. Took extra 15-20 mins of windy roads. Upstairs bdrm hot upon arrival, cranking AC cooled it down enough. Lighting in kitchen dim & made it difficult to cook.The Ugly: Major issues w/ plumbing. Used dishwasher & discovered it would not drain. Drain pipe in the left side of the sink had leak. Multiple calls to maintenance & two visits by three maintenance men, neither were fixed by the time we left cabin. Last day discovered upstairs tub leaking into downstairs bedroom through ceiling. Looked like ceiling had been patched previously w/ clear caulk where dripping occured.Conclusion: Good cabin, esp for the price (Groupon, ½ off). Close to downtown, easy access to national park & activities. Perfect size for 2 couples or family of 4. Having to do dishes by hand & cleaning up water for 4 days not our idea of a relaxing vacation. If we had to pay full price this review would be harsher. 6+ visits to G-burg cabins & this is 1st time I?ve experienced anything like this. I would not recommend Elk Springs Cabin Rentals to a friend and will likely not retur

Mixed Feelings...
A guest from Cincinnati, OH does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015
I booked with ElksSprings only because i was given a good deal and the Customer Service Rep was very pleasant to speak to. However, everything beyond that was a dissapointment to some degree. Perhaps what I found frustrating is not a big deal to other potential renters though.1- The driving directions specifically state 'DO NOT GPS- Use our directions'. This is because the GPS directions will take you to their Home Office, not the cabin. So, I followed their directions. After spending 45 minutes lost in the woods, I called and they provided my cabin address which I plugged into the GPS and found. *Why doesn't ElkSprings provide your cabin address when you book? *ElkSprings directions which you're supposed to follow are missing 4 streets which were crucial to get to our cabin. Ridiculous.2- This is part human error, but when i filled the hot tub up upstairs and sat it in, the water overflowed onto the floor. Which then leaked through the ceiling and got the 2nd bedroom downstairs soaked- bed and all. So we did laundry this day.3- Dartboard does not work and has not worked since 2014 (i saw a complaint in the book at the cabin, where you tell about your stay)4- ElkSprings called me 6 times during my stay to make sure 'everything was great'. Far too many call/voicemails.And i believe thats it. Overall, the customer service was pleasant, cabin was nice although not a good view and the driveway is extremely steep. Photos are more appealing then cabin itself in my personal opinion.

Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015
The cabin was nice and clean. The hot tub was not up to my expectation. The location was terrible in terms of the driveway. The driveway was very dangerous. The first tier went up at about a 80 degree angle (not exaggerating that much at all). You then made a 90 degree turn to the left and up a another very steep angle (so steep that you could not see the drive in front of the car - all you can see is your hood). You are then provided an incredibly tight area to turn around. One slip and you are going over the edge of the drive and down the side of the hill. There needs to be a concrete barrier at the top of the drive like parking lots have to stop you for moving forward. Then you need to back up in a very tight area where you go back and forth, back and forth to get your car situated to go down the drive - which also includes another hillside disaster waiting to happen with one wrong move. What upsets me most is the rental company did not mention the challenging driveway at all. I consider myself a pretty good driver and still found it unacceptable. I know the people with me would not even tackle that driveway.

Great place, scary driveway
Michelle B. from Douglasville, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in April, 2015
Rainbow lookout is a lovely cabin, but the driveway is scary. It's steep, and turns 90 degrees in the middle and there is little space for turning around at the top. If you don't have all wheel or four wheel drive your tires might spin A bit. You also might bottom out at the bottom of the driveway as well if your car rides low. On a positive note... Because of the steep grade, the view is nice from all of the porches. The check in check out process could not have been easier. It is a well appointed cabin and the game room was awesome! All in all we had a great stay, but I would only recommend this property to someone with the right kind of vehicle.

Our family had a great time at the Rainbow Lookout cabin!! We did not want to leave. It was the most relaxing family vacation we've ever had. We enjoyed all of the amenities the cabin had to offer. The only downfall to the cabin is the dangerously steep driveway.

Everyone should know this is a STEEP driveway! Don't think we could have done it without 4wheel drive. Great getaway! Loved the location distance from downtown. Great time for our first family vaca! Great size for our family of 6!

Nice, but won't be using again ...
A guest from Buffalo Grove, IL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014
Nice roomy cabin. Quiet. Convenient location to Gatlinburg and national park.No view.Driveway is very steep and challenging. Hated it.Fireplace not available until Oct 1. We stayed last week of Sept and no exception was allowed.Did not like the line item billing system - one rate for room, separate/additional costs for cleaning, administration, and damage waiver. Admin cost should be part of the room cost. Damage waiver should be refunded to guests who don't damage anything.I believe I could find comparable lodging options for a better price in area.

Great Place - Quiet and Beautiful
Cheryl S. from Grand Rapids, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014
Loved the cabin. Everything was clean, setup was great, setting was wonderful. Elk Springs has superior customer service - contacted me several times between the date that I set up reservations, all the way through our stay to make sure that we had everything we needed. Great experience, would definitely do rent from them again. The only thing I would mention to renters is the steep driveway - if you didn't have a vehicle that could handle it, it could be a problem. Just let the renter know ahead of time.

Overall good stay
A guest from Cincinnati, OH Ohio recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014
Overall we enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and private and very close to a grocery store. The only issue we had was with the Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. The water came out yellow. We called in a maintenance request but no one ever came or called us back about it. It wasn't a huge deal since we still had the hot tub and it was a short stay, but we were disappointed in the lack of response. I got a deal on the price and don't think I would pay full price for a stay in this cabin.

Overall, the cabin was fantastic! The cabin was larger than what we expected, and included a very well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, and a great game room. However, we did call the resort to report one small issue but did not get a call back from them.

Beautiful 's fully loaded and everything you need is at your reach. Quiet,clean,relaxing and privacy all you could ask for. We couldn't enjoy the fresh mountain air due to the no screens on the windows but not a big deal. Game room was awesome. Convenient to stores and restaurants. Driveway is pretty steep,not as bad once you get used to it. I still highly recommend this cabin. We(me,wife and kids)loved it.

home is secluded in trees, very clean and a great few days away. Experience with Elk Springs was great. Only drawback is the steep driveway, however they were upfront about it when we booked it. House was very clean and the hot tub was just what we needed after our hikes.

The Little Things
A guest from Lancaster, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014
Overall, our vacation experience as a family of 5 was very positive at this location. However, I would offer that little things matter. If you describe a game room with a dart board - have darts that aren't broken. If there are 4 TV's, more than 1 should be working on arrival (Elk Springs came and fixed 2, but the one in the master bedroom was unusable. Also, it should be mentioned that this driveway is STEEP! It's broken up into an L shape, and both parts of the L are steep. The kitchen was great and fully stocked with what you'd need. The outside had a nice place to eat. The hottub was used a lot! It's a great location close to the arts district, only a few minutes from downtown, and about 20 minutes drive from some great hiking spots. Overall a great stay?just some little things that would've made it better.

Home was very nice and clean. The only downside was the driveway. It was unbelievably steep with a hairpin turn. I am not exaggerating when I say I thought the car was going yo glop backwards going up it. That was in a minivan I can't imagine anyone attempting it in a mid size truck or larger.

The cabin, its amenities and its privacy are all one could ask. The location is convenient to town, groceries, attractions, etc. An aspect of the cabin which must be considered serves as both a pro and con: The driveway is extremely steep, with a hairpin turn. While this assures privacy (the cabin is literally built into the hillside), it is a bit hair-raising to negotiate, particularly at night. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would not hestitate to return.

Great location, home away from home
Stephanie G. from Troy, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014
We had a very good experience from reservation to check in and during our stay. Staff was excellent! The cabin was perfect for our family and had all the amenities of home...the living room with fireplace was our favorite room to relax in. Hot tub was a huge hit! We loved being in the arts and craft community...close to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mtn National Park.Wish we could enjoy the Spring breeze by opening up the windows...but no screens on them or doors. Also, the driveway was a bit rough...a sttep 45 degree angle and then a sharp 90 degree turn with another steep 45 degree angle. Made our hearts thump for sure!Would definitely recommend Elk Springs to others and use them again.

Not the luxury cabin that is advertised
Elizabeth L. from Beaver Creek, OH does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014
We started out our vacation by going up the driveway to the property (it was not even wet!) and having my tires spin on the second half! We had to park halfway up and walk. This was a huge issue since we were traveling with older people. We were extremely disappointed because we asked if this was easy access and not too far "off road". I was told there was nothing challenging about accessing this site. WRONG! The living room couch cushions are frayed. The basement was so cold that we couldn't enjoy it. There is basically no yard area at all. The view you see from the porches is the road. Be careful using the jacuzzi in the master bath. I filled it up on our first evening there, turned the jets on and HUGE hair ball blew out of one of them. The pictures make this cabin look much nicer than it is. We have stayed several different places in the area and we were very disappointed. :-(

The location was right next to a road up a step hill. The hot tube was on the porch which was un-level and would over flow. All the hardwood floor had large gaps in the which would hurt your feet. the Jacuzzi tub leaked into the bedroom below it. the air hockey table the goals were broken. It is not as shown in the pictures or described properly.

Rainbow Lookout Cabin
A guest from Glen Burnie, MD recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in February, 2014
The cabin was gorgeous. We loved it. But the 2 steep hills you have to drive up to get to the cabin were not fun. They need to tell people about those hills. I had a packed mini van and had to have my friends walk up the hills because we all couldnt be in the car. Also outside by the grill area it would be great to have some type of light. Its really dark at night.

Rainbow Lookout Review
Jennifer K. from Jonesborough, TN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in February, 2014
We stayed at Rainbow Lookout for Valentine's Day just following a snow. The staff was helpful in trying to accommodate us if we couldn't make it to the cabin. We were able to make it to the cabin. The staff took the time to clean it, however they didn't bother salting the drive or walkway, so my husband and I hiked through the snow and he shoveled it himself the next day. The coffee maker hadn't been cleaned and was moldy inside. The game room was freezing and the darts were broken and the air hockey table needed some repairs. The radio downstairs wasn't operable because the remote was missing. Someone had blown the speakers on the TV upstairs. Someone had also taken the local eateries menu from the kitchen. We saw footprints in the snow near the cabin, which made us a bit uncomfortable relaxing in the hot tub knowing the porch was open on one side. My husband also heard someone attempting to enter the cabin around 5am on our last night and turned on the lights inside scaring them off. This made for an unsettling sleep. Overall it was what we were looking for. But it didn't live up to the luxury of its online presence. Probably best suited for a warm-weather family vacation. For the cost, I would recommend looking into other options in the area.

Not worth the money
Jo Ann S. from Memphis, TN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013
The kitchen and playroom were great, and we also enjoyed the hot tub and Christmas decorations. The rest of the property left much to be desired. The speakers on the main TV were blown, so when we went to play Christmas music it sounded horrible. The jacuzzi tub upstairs had brown tinged water, which left a nasty film around the tub and the tub itself was very small. Every night the upstairs room was very hot, yet downstairs was freezing; we never got a good nights sleep due to this. The view was not great and it was extremely difficult to get up and down the driveway. Lastly, the phones did not always work and one day when my son was taking a shower upstairs, it started leaking in the downstairs bedroom!! Of course, I was napping at the time and woke up to dripping water in the bedroom. What a messs!! The day we left a very rude man showed up at the property wanting to make sure we were gone. For $2500 we expected much, much more. We will never stay in this cabin again, it needs some maintenece. We were overall disappointed in the property, the pull out couch was also very uncomfortable for my son, he did not sleep well on it. For the money we spent, the cabin should have been much nicer.

Dont book if you drive a small vehicle!! Driveway way to steep!!!
A guest from Decatur, MS does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 1 days in November, 2013
We could not even get to the cabin to tell whether or not we enjoyed our stay. We arrived late and the drive way is steep, steep, steep and being in a Nissan Altima, we could NOT get up the drive. Well, we could have if we wanted to replace the whole under side of the car. NOT!! so, we had to stay in a hotel the 1st night of our 5 night stay in Gatlinburg. But..The nice people at Elk Springs moved us to another cabin that we could actually navigate too. So, we appreciate them for being so helpful and understanding. So, I would not recommend this cabin to anybody driving a small car. now, if you have a major lift kit on your vehicle, go for it!! Elk springs DID tell me that the driveway was steep but easily navigated. NOT TRUE!! unless you want major vehicle damage. WE did not so we opted not to stay here. I would recommend Elk Springs to book your vacation stay, just not this cabin in a small car with no ground clearance. Thanks Elk Springs for moving us and saving our vacation!!

Nice Cabin, Horrible location.
Angie B. from Connelly Springs, NC does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2013
When I booked my vacation with Elk Springs resort, I chose a cabin that seemed to fit my family's needs perfectly, that cabin had pictures of a beautiful mountain view and looked to be very accessible right off the road with no driveway. Two (2) days before check-in, I was notified by the resort that they would no longer be able to accomodate me with the cabin I chose with no explination. I was placed in a cabin I would have never chosen and I was not given the chance to choose a different cabin. When I arrived at the cabin (Rainbow Lookout), the driveway was narrow and so steep I thought my vehicle would scrape entering it and tip backwards while driving up it. The area to park was eigther on a straight up and down hill or in a tight area with hardly room to turn the vehicle around. The cabin was clean and ammenities were nice and my family enjoyed the gameroom downstairs, but the ceiling in the downstairs bedroom leaked water from the bathroom above on our last day there(we were only there for 2 days). The cabin has absolutely no view of the beautiful mountains I had been looking forward to in the other cabin, only the view of 2 roads looking straight down through trees. I would say the driveway and the "view" were so disappointing, I do not plan on booking another vacation with Elk Springs ever again, due to the fact that they were unable to fulfill the vacation I had planned for a month and a half and put me in a leaky cabin with a horrific driveway with no other options. Also, the Resort "guide" book is outdated with phone numbers to the resort that are "no longer in service". Very disappointed.

The lodge is set back in the woods and is a fantastic experience. The kitchen, floors, linens were all clean. There was a noticeable amount of dust in fixtures and ceiling fans. Bathrooms were okay - commodes had stains and did not seem to be cleaned out each time. Wish cleaning crew takes care to clean the commodes each time when a guest moves out, this can be easily kept clean.
