I would be very leery of renting a cabin from this resort. They have unethical business practices. They used a bait and switch game with us and have been known to change the names of their cabins once bad reviews have been written about them. We initially looked into availability on a cabin they have posted on Trip Advisor. This... More

This was our first time to rent a cabin for a Gatlinburg trip since boyfriends/girlfriends were coming with the family. Found Mountain Shadows on Craigslist and did not research the property beforehand on TripAdvisor like I usually do. Was apprehensive when I read some other reviews, but we were very pleased with our stay in "Almost Heaven", and I am... More

My husband and I just spent the last three days at a cabin called "Smokey Mtn. Dream" with Mountain Shadow Resorts. It was perfect for just the two of us! King size bed with a foam top that was very comfortable. The pillows were horrible and flat but we always bring our own. The bathroom was clean, small, and bright.... More

Thank you KaCee for your comments regarding your stay in A Smoky Mountain Dream cabin. We have a wonderful King bed in that cabin, and everyone loves that memory foam mattress! The indoor Jacuzzi you referred to as the hot tub inside requires water to cover the jets completely in order to operate correctly, sounds like you might not have... More

WE stayed in Blue Mountain View Last December for a week. The cabin was clean and easily accessible. It was warm and cozy Our only complaint was the bed was lumpy and worn out and the sheets were ill fitted. Alll in all it was a good value for the price We will return again in the future
