Thirty years ago my wife and I came to this exact location for our honeymoon. Over the last few years I've searched and searched for "Cobly Nob Resort" in the hopes of staying there again. No luck. So when we arrived in Gatlinburg we didn't have a whole lot of hope that we would even be able to find the place. But we stopped on the way out of Gatlinburg at another hotel that we thought might be it and they remembered the name Cobly Nob Resort and told us where to find it. We drove out the 11 miles to Bent Creek and soon realized that it is now owned by Diamond Resorts, so we thought there wouldn't be much of a chance of getting a place to stay. Well, the staff were just amazingly accommodating. They arranged for us to stay in an amazing one bedroom condo, that was certainly a whole lot better than what we had stayed in thirty years before. We had a beautiful and comfortable bedroom, a bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower, a nice living room with gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, and a small dining area, as well as washer and dryer and screened in porch. We stayed two nights, and if we hadn't gotten called away by a family emergency we certainly would have stayed longer.
When we checked out I mentioned to Beth at reception that we had stayed here thirty years ago, and she went and found pictures of the previous building where we stayed. A few days ago she even mailed us a postcard of the place for our scrap book.
The attention to detail at this place is impeccable. The staff are way over the top in their kindness, helpfulness, and friendliness. We had an absolutely fantastic time here that will never be forgotten!
