My husband and I rented a cabin through Groupon with Creekwalk Inn. Janice, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful both when we called to make our reservation and when we arrived. The drive up to our cabin was a bit daunting as we are not native mountain road drivers, but our little car made it without a problem and the cabin was perfect. We had a little one room cabin with a full kitchen, one bathroom, a king size bed, jacuzzi inside, wrap around deck with hot tub, and lots of privacy. The pictures on their website don't really do the rooms justice.
The cabin itself was only about 30 or 40 minutes away from Gatlinburg, TN if you wanted some touristy, downtown time and it was also very close to the Smoky Mountain National Park with what seems like unlimited hiking trails to choose from.
The cabin did not have internet access but it was kind of nice to escape from all of that for a little while. We did have great phone service, so if you need to check anything on the internet you could do so from a smart phone. Otherwise there was a small TV and DVD player if you wanted to watch a movie, and there were TV stations to choose from but they cut in and out because of all the trees, but we enjoyed just playing games we brought and soaking in the hot tub!
The cabin was charming and perfect for a couple's get away. The only downside we could think of was the amount of bugs we saw inside the cabin. There wasn't a overly large amount and most of them were just moths and a couple beetle type bugs, but we did encounter and kill a small scorpion in the cabin. No worries, their sting (we read) is no worse than a honey bee sting, but still, not the most inviting thing to see on the floor.
Otherwise, no complaints! Definitely a great vacation spot to get away from every day life and just enjoy each other's company and, if you want, some hiking in the mountains and tourist time in Gatlinburg.
