September 2014 Knotty and Nice Trip
A guest from Norwood, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in September, 2014
Overall, Knotty and Nice was a great cabin! It was clean, well-decorated, comfortable, and spacious! Our only complaint is that some of the sheets were sandpaper! These sheets should be upgraded to a slightly better quality because they were very uncomfortable and itchy. Other than that though, the cabin was great and we had a lot of fun! Highly recommend this cabin and company!

Family Vacation
A guest from New Orleans, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014
On each family vacation, I surf the internet for resorts/properties based on the description, reviews and pictures shown. Knotty and Nice went beyond our expectations. Upon entering the cabin, my family was overwhelmed by the layout, cleaniness and amenities. They loved the appearance of the log cabin look. The sauna did not work the 1st day; however, it was addressed/operable the following day. The next visit to Knotty and Nice will be adults only.

Home away from Home. I love everything about my trip. My cabin was ready 2 hrs before check in. The staff was so friendly and prompt with any answers to my questions and service request. The cabin was easy access and convenient to drive to downtown Gatlinburg. I just could go on and on how great my stay was. I'm already planning a second trip back this summer and will try to make this annual trip.

What an Awesome Vacation~
Cheryl B. from Marne, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014
We have two sons and their families that live a few hours from us, and a daughter and her family live in our town. We wanted to meet somewhere,and spend a week together, so that the cousins could hang out and do things together. We could not have picked a better place to do that. We stayed in Knotty & Nice. It was beautiful~ We enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The cabin was perfect. So much room for everyone. The kids loved the theater room. Each family had a bedroom with plenty of room. We loved that we were able to grill out and eat at the cabin. It was one of the most relaxing vacations that we have ever taken. Gatlynburg is beautiful. Everything was centrally located. A grocery store within 5 minutes was also great. Check in was easy, as well as the check out. We loved sitting out on the deck in the rocking chairs with the sun shining on us. The hot tub was a hit at night. There was so much to do, but also plenty of time to relax and enjoy our vacation. We will for sure be back, and hopefully Knotty and Nice will be available because it was a perfect " home away from home". Everyone on the way home was talking about what we would do the next we will be back. Thank you for sharing a wonderful vacation place~

Check in/out was very simple. Staff was most helpful, providing information, directions, etc. Cabin was very clean and spacious. Floors were a bit creaky in the Master bedroom which was difficult for those sleeping in the Queen bunk room. Loved the cabin and area. Would definitely go again.

Perfect Family Vacation
Jeanna S. from Laceys Spring, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013
We rented the Knotty & Nice cabin for our family Thanksgiving vacation. The cabin was beautiful with plenty of room for everyone. We particularly enjoyed the sauna, theater and game room. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, pots and pans for me to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner. The view was nice and close to many attractions in Gatlinburg. We particulary loved that there was a grocery store 10 minutes from the cabin as well. The staff was very friendly and even made a courtesy call to make sure our stay was going well. The only complaint we have was that the cabin had out dated TV's throughout. Our teenage boys wanted to play xbox on the gameroom TV but we couldn't find the remote so we were'nt able to get them connected.All in all the cabin is beautiful and was the best family vacation we've had. The snow was a plus! We do plan on returning next year!

Knotty and Nice Family Vacation October 2013
A guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013
The home is lovely, and it was so wonderful having my daughters and their families all under one roof. I did find several pieces of dirty siverware, so I ran the D/W twice, cleaning all the utensils, plates and bowls, and pans before family use. The upstairs loveseat and ottoman look very worn and unappealing. The livingroom rocker tore my sweater with an exposed nail. Another LR chair would have been nice. We found a child's size 5, black skeleton PJ shirt under one of the upstairs beds, lost by a previous family. All the bedspreads and pillows were obviously not changed or cleaned between families. For beds, I prefer all clean sheets and blankets wrapped in clean sheets. The extra blankets looked awful. Also, the towels were small and threadbare. We did wash them daily. The washer and dryer were wonderful with children in the house! We appreciated the clean water in the hot tub. Everyone had fun in the downstairs area, and the house was big enough to be able to escape, when the noise level was too high! Beautiful deck with plenty of rockers to sit and enjoy the view. The railing were safe for youngsters, but we were glad to have a babygate for the stairs(bring two) The little ones loved the porch swing. We had a great location to travel into Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Smokies. From the restaurants and shops to the grocery store, everyone was very friendly. Be sure to call to have your trash emptied...we had a raccoon visitor on our dect one night! We had a wonderful time!

Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Thank you for the comments and sorry our housekeeping crew missed a few items. We have on site housekeeping and maintenance and are happy to assist (typically within 10 minutes). It is easier for us to respond to items we know closer to check in as we are unable to remedy things you notify us about after you check out. Again, sorry for your inconvenience.

Great stay! Family loved our cabin, Knotty & Nice!
A guest from Bucyrus, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in September, 2013
Family loved the cabin! We were made up of 4 adults, 2 teenagers, and 1 child. Once we walked into the cabin, everyone was in awe on how big it was. The view was great! We had a view of trees and mountains. It was awesome watching the clouds roll in and out and how fast the weather can change in the Smokies. Cabin was close to area attractions, but far enough away to get away from the craziness. We had a cat visit us twice which my husband joked about cats can find me any where I go (I feed the stray cats that are around my neighborhood). The kitty was just making me feel at home. We make it back to Gatlinburg, we will most definitely stay here again.

Fun times
A guest from Knoxville, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013
I stayed in the cabin with 9 friends for the weekend and it was a great time. Plenty of activities inside the cabin to keep you busy while you're being rained out. Sauna instructions were a bit tricky, but we figured out that it only gets HOT on the 1st #1 on the dial. The toggle switch is a push button on the bottom side of the unit.Everyone had their own bathroom which was nice. The 2 only gripes were that there are not mountain views in this resort, and there were no cleaning items. We could have used a broom several times.....

You Can't Go Wrong!
Linda A. from Lumberton, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013
Knotty & Nice is a fantastic home! There were 11 of us, and we all had our own personal space. Although it is close to other houses, the decks face the woods and it 'feels' secluded, plus there is a good view of the mountains. We loved the hot tub and the kids enjoyed the movie theater. It was in a perfect location for our active family... on the outskirts of Gatlinburg on the same side of town as Climbworks ZipLine, our Nantahala white water rafting on the Pigeon River, and our Walk in the Woods guide trip at the Cosby entrance to the national park. Turn left and you are just minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Gatlinburg. We absolutely loved our vacation, and Knotty & Nice is the perfect home away from home when visiting the Smoky Mountains! You can't go wrong with this rental property!

Stay Here!
A guest from Cedar Park, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013
They have a warning sign at the entrance, that you may not want to leave. 100% correct, we truly regretted leaving after a 6-night stay. The Knotty & Nice cabin is absolutely amazing. Great setup for families with kids. We were very happy with the property- tons of amenities, plenty of space, great furniture & decorations. Also very clean. It really feels like a home away from home. Nice view through the huge windowed wall / off the main porch. Likely other cabins in the property a little higher up will have an even more amazing view.There are lots of cabins in the property, but doesn't feel like it when in the cabin. The location is relatively good, just east of the Gatlinburg 'strip'. If you plan to drive regularly to Smoky Mtns Park, you have to deal with getting through the slow Gatlinburg area, or go via the bypass. For groceries & supplies, I suggest Food City. It's very close, just be sure to get their savings card to save $$$. FYI, they sell TN fishing licenses there. Otherwise, there's a Kroger and WalMart in Pigeon Forge (20-30min away).My only recommendation for Elk Springs is to upgrade TV's to flat-screen HD, and upgrade the theater room to HD projector & Bluray. Ideally, add HDMI input to allow guests to connect game system, PC (streaming video like Netflix), etc.We'll definitely be back! Highly Recommended!!!

The location is in a great place. The cabins are very nice. Their was some parts of the cabin that might need to be updated. Newer TVs would be a easy upgrade from the ones that are there. It was time to replace the air hockey table. It was worn next to the goals. The thermometer did not work on the grill as well. Other than that it was a real nice stay. This was our second time staying in this cabin. We have been going to elk springs sense 2008 and always enjoy it!

We all abosutley enjoyed our stay so much that we are considering doing this every year at elk springs. Customer service was amazing and very prompt to return calls and simple fact that they called me to just make sure we had everything we needed on the weekend speaks volumes!From the Pratt & Henry family we say thank you soooo much and look forward to staying here again, and again, and again..well you get the point! :)

Our family of 5 had a wonderful surprise at the elk springs resort. We really had no idea just how beautiful the smokey mountains were let alone from our beautiful deck at the knotty and nice! Kids loved the lower level game room and theater room. I loved the view. Only 2 items of feedback - 1. no availability of child safety products - gates etc so please being your own! 2. The bedding and every surface was covered with large decorative pillows , heavy comforters, and other soft goods. I know these cant be cleaned between guests. The pillows and table drapes aren't necessary! I'd prefer higher quality linens and expected a washable blanket and no decorative pillows. Looking toward to a return visit to this wonderful spot!

It was very difficult to contact the office, a person!
A guest from Versailles, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in October, 2012
Knotty and Nice was a nice cabin. Set up well for a large family group in structure. Would be nicer if the pavement was continued to that road and driveway. Overall cabin was set up well but not set up for family cooking or eating. Kitchen was dark and we found 4 spoons in the set and a few extra serving spoons for 12! We had to eat chili with forks which I counted only 13 in a house that states sleeps 14. Loft sofa bed (futon) would only be appropriate for a child to sleep on since it was an "on the floor rollout". A real sofa bed, even and twin, would be much more usable. We had to limit towels and still had to wash daily. The cheap white towels would be OK if there would have been enough for everyone to use. We are used to better and more towels in our rentals. It was quiet except for the crazy Friday night party and I was not able to get thru to anyone at the office. We called the office many, mamy times from 12am until 1am and left messages then called the police after one hour of calling your contact #. No one ever returned my messages left that night. We are not used to staying where loud parties happen or are permitted. We are used to staying farther out for past 20 years and did like the closer locattion of this cabin. Glades Road is a nice area. With some minimal upgrades to kitchen equipment, loft seat/futon and towels this could be a fabulous rental! Better contact to office is a must if needed with problems like drunk, screaming neighbors too! I would not have expected that problem in a rental of this price range. It has been our most expensive rental with poorer amenities than we are used to having. If we return we would expect to see the drive paved, more silverware and towels and better phone office access. Overall we had a good stay though. Cabin and furniture (not futon) were very nice.

A guest from Jasper, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012
We were a group of 11 people and this property had ample space to accommodate all of us plus more. Location is a little out in the sticks but it's very peaceful and has forest views plus a peek into the mountains. The indoor theater is amazing, pool table, ice hockey table, jacuzzi all add to the fun of staying in this location. Check in / Check out is effortless.Negatives - no cell phone reception, very patchy wifi network. And yes, the front door started beeping at 3am one day and woke all of us. It was fixed by 10 am. No, it wasn't beeping continuously, just every 30 mins or so

As if the cabin, complete with home theater room, sauna, pool table, air hockey and hot tub wasn't enough, the resort is in a great location. Close enough to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge that you dont spend all day driving but far enough away tucked in the mountains enough that you are away from all of the hustle and bustle. It was a wonderful vacation and we will be going back.

The Knotty and Nice cabin was just simply Awesome, Beautiful and Very Spacious and we felt like it was our very own home while we were there. It was very clean and decorated very beautiful. The deck was so refreshing to sit out on and drink coffee, read a book, or just talk. Every thing I needed to prepare a family meal was in the kitchen which made it so convenient. The children had a ball playing in the game room and so did I. We had so much fun visiting the many attractions, there's just so much to do there no matter what your age is. The theatre room was like being at the movies, but only better because we were able to recline back as we watched our movie and ate popcorn. It was Awesome and the "Best Family Vacation" trip ever!!! We are still talking about it and can't wait to go back!

Not as described, no customer service
Matthew G. from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in December, 2011
First off, this cabin is not as described, we picked out this cabin, partly on the fact that it said there were 3 jacuzzi tubs, one in each master bedroom. This is not true, only one of the bedrooms have a jacuzzi tub, the others are just normal bathtubs. The night of check-in I called because the pilot light was out, left a message. Never received a call back, so called again during the next day, no one answered, so left another message, never got a call back or anyone to show up to fix the property. Also left message about the xbox not being in the cabin as requested, once again never got a call back. In one of the master bedroom's bathrooms, the tub drained very slowly, did not call in, as I never got a call back about my other issues. We ended up lighting the pilot light ourselves. The location was great, I'm not entirely sure if I will use that discount for repeat visitors, with the lack of customer service, and false advertisements of the cabins.

Just like going to the movies. The sound wasnt working right when we arrived, it was checked that afternoon, and the next morning, a brand new systen was installed. Have never had better service.

Our family stayed August 1st > the 5th. in Knotty and Nice. The cabin was just as pictured on the web site, beautiful and roomy. The cabin was clean and well maintained, the only suggestion we have would to check the tips on the pool sticks and maybe have a couple spares on hand, as they had been worn down and worn out. When we tried to use the sauna it did not work the first time I called and left a message but we tried later that evening and it seemed to be working so we called back to let maintence know.The location was great as well as long as you don't mind a short drive to the attractions. The staff and property manager were very helpful from booking to checking in. Would have loved to stay longer, so we could have spent even more time relaxing and hanging out in the cabin.

A guest from Milford Center, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011
I loved the cabin! There was a lot of room and separate areas for everyone in the family to go; also i have two infants and pretty much this cabin was "baby proofed". I liked that this cabin was a little more tucked away than others and provided a lot of parking where as some i could see did not. Just a couple of things i did not like, the jacuzzi tub didn't appear to be cleaned when i arrived, it could have been dust i don't know. I would recommend bringing your own sheets and towells if you like something with a little more thread count. I don't believe there is a pool going in at all if there is i never saw one it would have to be at a different location... I will be staying at Elk Springs again and i cannot wait to try out some other cabins!

unusable due to falling through the frame. We really did have a nice time and enjoyed the overall condition of the cabin. It suited our needs perfectly. We would return - but just felt some things could have been better. We would have liked to have had a vacuum available as the children do drop crums and food onto the carpet around the table - but we weren't able to do anything about the small crums. The heat/air conditioning was broken and it took 2 days to get it repaired. By then the temperatures were cooler and we didn't need air. Just things that should be checked between each tenant. It sounds like we hated it - but we really didn't. 1 more thing - our garbage added up quickly - and we couldn't get anyone to pick it up.

Thank you for the feedback and we're sorry for the issues. We should have been more thorough on this unit to prevent these items from happening. Spring and the warm temperatures did come early and we did not yet have all of our A/C units inspected and did not know there was a freon leak in your unit. We have since fixed the unit and all of our other units. Again, we do apologize. You do get a 10% discount on future stays as a repeat guest and we are glad you still enjoyed your stay despite these issues.

The cabin was beautiful and very clean. The layout allows for privacy when needed and the game room, hot tub, etc. were welcome additions. We are looking forward to visiting again in warmer weather and getting our family together again since we had such a good time during our last stay.

We were booked into a different cabin than knotty and nice, but upon arrival and getting settled we encountered a problem that could not be fixed that evening. when we called they came out immediately and tried to take care of it. it was a problem they were unaware of. they moved us to knotty and nice and helped us move. We couldn't have asked for more instant helpful management. They were great. The cabin is beautiful and the cleanest we have ever been in and we have been to the smokies for the last 27 years, We have never stay in a Motel, condo or cabin as clean and nice as this resort offers. Our family came in and we enjoyed the pool table, air hockey, movie theater.sauna room and hot tub.

The ottoman downstairs was broken, and there was no TV in the downstairs den. Also, a major leak occured in the home theater during our stay. It ended up not being a huge inconvenience because we had plans in Townsend that day. However, it would have been a disappointment had we opted to bum around the cabin, watch movies, etc. Other than that, our stay was very enjoyable.

Property Manager Response:
Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals
Sorry about the inconvenience with the leak. Apparently a significant amount of water was splashed out of the jacuzzi tub while in use that caused the leak. We sealed the tile and caulked around the tub, but in some cases when that much water is splashed out, it can cause a leak.

We visited the Knotty and Nice Cabin at Elk Springs in Feb 2010. We travelled with 8 adults and 2 small children. The cabin is as beautiful as it looks in the photos and this cabin in particular is very private in the back which was a big plus. Plenty of tools in the kitchen, clean and the movie theater and game room was lots of fun. A few small points - the family room desperately needs a DVD player. With small children, they cannot be left alone in the movie theater downstairs and we needed a place to entertain the kids in the main area. Also, the BBQ grill was very dirty and needed an hour of scrubbing the grates before it could be used which was an inconvenience. Otherwise, we would certainly return.

Also, lower floor accommodations lacked adequate heating (freezing). The positives were movie theater room, gas grill, gas fire place, roominess of main floor and plenty of bathrooms.

We had a great time as a family. The weather gave us a "White Christmas" surprise and a power outage that we were not prepared for. An emergency pack of flashlights/batteries and emergency and instructions for future guests might be a nice addition. Upon arrival to the cabin there was a maintenance man on sight repairing all the movie seats. It took him about 2 hrs to complete the task and another repair to the stairs. I think this should have been done before our arrival. Also, for a luxury cabin the kitchen was equiped with old, mix/matched and chipped glassware, cookware, and cooking tools. Additionally, for a 14 person cabin there were only two towels per bathroom (not enough). Having said all of this, the cabin was spacious and the movie room was a hit. The gameroom temperature could not be regulated so it stayed chilly most of the time but we enjoyed the ice hockey and billards down there. With improvements to the equipping of the kitchen and supply of linens this cabin would have been given a 5 star rating. Real luxury is in the details and this cabin fell a little short.

We loved the house overall. There were a couple of issues that didn't ruin our trip but the management company needs to address. The chairs in the media room kept breaking (that was huge for us because we watched movies every evening and there were two that couldn't be used...a major bummer. They did come and fix them but one broke again the same night. The jets on the hot tub aren't great but not a biggie. AND my biggest recommendation would be to bring some sort of sound system...we assumed there would be sattelite tv and for a property that's luxury like this, we found that odd so we had to go out and by speakers and hook up the computer. Secondly, they need to invest in silverware. There weren't enough sets and what was there was horrible. You can buy cheap nice sets at TJ Maxx for 20 bucks. There should be service for 10. We ended up buying plastic but that was sub-standard for Thanksgiving dinner! That being said, check in was very organized, clean up was easy, plenty of towels, beautiful hosue, plenty of blankets and pillows and we really did love it. Going back next year for Christmas:)

We love Elk Springs Resort. We started a tradition a few years best friend and her family, along with my family, come to Gatlinburg every Oct or Nov. This makes our 2nd yr at Elk Springs Resort. My best friend also comes every Feb for her wedding anniversary. We absolutely love it, and would recommend and do recommend to everyone. We stayed at Knotty and Nice this time. It is beautiful!!! Our only complaint is that one of the seats in the theater room was missing the springs or something. It was caved in. We had 9 people, so it limited how many could get a seat. We reported it, and I'm sure they will fix it. I wouldn't let that stop me from renting this beautiful cabin again. However, it is our goal to come back every year and stay in a different cabin until we have stayed at all of them. We absolutely love Elk Springs!!!

Relaxation Vacation
Rich H. from Plainfield, IL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at your resort. There were 8 of us (4 couples ranging from 58 to 67 years old) so our plans were to spent an ample amount of time in the cabin with some time for sightseeing, shopping, and dining. The cabin was plenty spacious for our group so that we could do things together or separately. One small thing that the balconies could have used were tables by the rocking chairs for our drinks and snacks, but this was just a minor inconvenience. One more small annoyance, the street that ran by our cabin was not paved, causing the bottom of our car to occasionally scrape as we pulled into our driveway if we weren't careful. Overall, we, all eight of us, were very pleased with the accommodations and location and would recommend this resort to our friends.

Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009
Our stay was everything we hoped for. The house was absolutely gorgeous. The game room is away from the rest of the house on the bottom floor which kept all the party animals away from the grandma's. The house looks JUST LIKE THE PICTURES. There isn't a great view but the trees keep the house pretty private, which is important. The management is very helpful and provided everything we needed. The only advice i have for future guests is, do not take a luxury car or compact car for that matter to this area. Stick to SUV's Vans etc... my BMW's bumper suffered severely because of the unpaved road to the house. That's just a heads up and a mistake on MY part for not being familiar with my surroundings.

Upon check-in, our breakfast basket and additional rocking chairs were brought late. A media room chair was broken, a drain in an upstairs tub was slow, and I reported an ice maker problem that never received any kind of response. The cabin was lovely with great views. It would help to have better maintenance of the cabins and quick response to problems. Tripadvisor reviews indicate others have had the same issues.

A guest from Martinsville, IN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in June, 2009
THE ONLY THING THAT WE HAD TO DO WAS BUY MORE POTS AND PANS BECAUSE FOR A LARGE GROUP THE POTS AND PANS WAS NOT BIG ENOUGH. WE HAD TO HAVE MAINTINENCE DONE ON THE HOTWATER HEATER AND THE GENTLEMAN WAS VERY PROMPT ON GETTING IT FIXED. WE WOULD STAY AT ELKS SPRINGS AGAIN.

The only negative I would express is the narrow driveway. Particularly a large house should have more parking. Overall however i

Knotty and Nice
george a. from morgan city, LA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 6 days in April, 2009
The cabin was exceptionally clean and beautiful. However, the fire place did not work properly nor did the projection system. Neither were repaired during our entire stay. We requested for the garbage to be emptied and only the bears came. On a positive note, we do appreciate the ability to have left our motorcycle trailer at the entrance of elk springs.

We stayed with another family of 4 and had plently of room to spread out. We are looking forward to coming back in the summer and staying with Elk Springs again. Marnin the maintanence man was the best. He helped get our projector fixed and brought us a new coffee pot. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Knotty and Nice. Thanks!

Natalie D. from Starkville, MS recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in March, 2009
Had some trouble with the lock and had to stay in a different cabin the first night. The projector also went out and they were unable to fix it before we left. This was all understandable, these things just happen somethimes. Except, we thought some sort of compensation should have been offered for the trouble. They did say they would send me a voucher for a different stay but I have not received anything. But this does not really help me in this circumstance since it only would help me and not the other people that came on the trip. Overall an ok trip though.

Birthday Snow Miracle
Terry S. from Panama City, FL recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in February, 2009
We celebrated my twins' 13th Birthday at our Cabin and considering that they are Florida girls who have never seen snow we got everything we wanted and more with one of the biggest snowfalls in 40 yrs. Our cabin was just spectacular and our entire family of 4 adults and 7 kids ranged in ages from 9 to 23 had a great time. My wife is already planning our next stay.

My family and I enjoyed our stay. The cabin was beautiful. The furniture was extremely comfortable. Unforunately some of the pictures I took showed how dirty the windows were. One of the chairs in the movie theater was busted and the sauna could only be set on 1. My cell phone didn't have a signal but the cabin provided a phone that let you call local numbers. You are expected to call when you check out but the number isn't local. So therefore I was unable to inform management that I had checked out. Over all I would rate my stay 3.5. It was a nice get away but for the money I expected a little more.

Gatlinburg Family Vacation
Paula Y. from Milford, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in February, 2009
Upon arrival we found the rental office closed, and one of the phone numbers listed on the door was a message that asked us to leave a message. Not helpful when you need to check in. After several tries of the alternate number someone answered. He was rude, and finding that we couldn't check in. The entry code had been left on our voice mail (our home phone which did us no good).After some wine and a restful night's sleep we began to prepare breakfast, but discovered that there were no filters for the coffee maker, no salt and pepper in the salt and pepper shakers on the counter, and only a 7 and 9 ince omelet pan to fry bacon, sausage, and eggs. Those two omelet pans also had dried eggs from the previous renter. Disgusting!!!This time when we called he informed us that all of those items were the responsibility of either the property owner, or the renter. None of this was explained anywhere in the rental information. Later that day Whitney again saved us by bring coffee filters, and frying pans.The tub/shower in one of the upstairs baths didn't drain, and after reporting it nothing was repaired. The carpet in the lower level recreation room was dirty.There was a very nice tissue box cover in each bathroom, but no tissues in any of them. Again we were informed that tissues were the responsibility of the property owner, or renter.This is a very nice area, and a beautiful and fun cabin, but the management company's customer relations, and attitude will soon stop anyone from renting

Stayed for 6 days in February, 2009
the cabin was mostly in good shape, but a few things stood out in our mind to mention here.the center seat in the back row was busted out in the movie room to where we didnt use it. the was tape over the 1st light down stairs over the air hockey table(didnt seem safe, so we didnt use the light). we found roaches downstairs in the cabin and killed promptly. the temp control seemed out of sorts. it would be 75 in the upper levels and 60 downstairs.

Had High Hopes
A guest from Decatur, GA recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2009
Several issues came up while there with no type of compensation for the inconvience. No heat in the bottom floor. Trash in master bath upon arrival. Stove/oven did not heat properly causing issues for 8adults staying there plus 6 in the other house. Not enough towels. Missing light bulbs. Locks did not work. Had limited utinsils and pots and pans. Set up for a two person as far as the cooking utinsils. Had issues in the 2nd house as well not working properly.Not enough trash storage. No regular trash pick up, so trash overflowed and the animals got it. Had to clean it up.Busted seat in the theatre room. Had to bring chairs in from the porch.

Gatlinburg 2008
John E. from Louisville, KY recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2008
All was good accept that we had to move to 3 different cabins during our stay. The first cabin Snuggled In had Bunk beds and we had two couples, the second cabin The View the electricity was shut off due to not getting a final inspection. Although Whitney and Kim were helpful if was a bit of a hassle having to change cabins 3 times. We will make it back but would like some compensation for our troubles in moving cabins twice in 2 days

Stay at Knotty and Nice
Hollie W. from Harvest, AL recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in November, 2008
I was very impressed with the cabin at Elk Springs Resort. It had everything mentioned on the website and so much more. The only thing I would like to see added would be serving dishes. There are pots and pans as well as mixing bowls, but nothing to serve dinner in. I will be bringing my entire family to stay at Serenity in two weeks to celebrate Thanksgiving. It would be great if we didn't have to bring serving dishes. Other than this complaint, Elk Springs is the greatest place I have stayed at to date.
