Owner stated will receive my confirmation number in 48 hrs. directions and the code. Tried to call back with a few questions . About 4 days later. Never received my confirmation number,... More

Unfortunately we didn't look for the negative reviews before booking our reservation at "Magic Forest" cabin or read the fine print about the non-cancellation policy after making full payment. So we traveled nearly 800 miles for our first visit to Gatlinburg and prepared ourselves for the worst. First the good. The cabin is very secluded and private and good for... More

Recently just stayed here, actually a few hours ago from this post. The place is wonderful! Very clean, very organized, and no clutter. The furniture was fine, the bed was extremely comfortable, you could tell the sheets had recently been cleaned before our stay. The hot tub was already heated, cleaned and ready to go as soon as we arrived.... More

My cabin vacation in Gatlinburg has the worst customer service ever. I wish I had dug deeper for reviews before renting the Magic Forest cabin. It's a complete dump. The front porch is rotting, the furniture is outdated and horribly uncomfortable, and is so dirty! There are cobwebs and spider webs literally everywhere. There are burned out lights. It is... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights. Everything was lovely. Cabin was clean and everything worked almost perfectly. Televisions were basic. But who wanted to watch television anyway. Would definitely do it again! Secluded, but literally only 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg.

My wife and I checked in to "Hidden Paradise" on Thursday night, February 12th. It was our 4th wedding anniversary weekend. I'm not sure where to begin. First, the key code didn't work. Finally after a 30 minute wait, we received a new code. Once inside, the fireplace didn't work and after a 3rd call to the office, we were... More

Arrived around 7:30 pm. Driveway blocked due to snow. Called office and they answered. Said that maintenance was unable to clear driveway. Might be able to do it the next day but probably not. After finally parking and carrying our stuff down a steep driveway, we arrive to find the cabin temp at 64° heat would not kick on. Called... More
