We were a little nervous about our trip to Gatlinburg Falls Resorts based on some of the reviews here......but had an overwhelmingly positive time!! We stayed at Eternally Yours with our two families---4 adults, 4 early teen kids. It was everything we hoped for. Check in was a breeze, and the folks at the front office were friendly and efficient.
PROS: clean, upscale, beautiful views, complete kitchen and accessories, working televisions and appliances. We loved the home theatre and used it throughout out 4 day stay. The video game console in the lower level was a blast for all of us, and we also enjoyed the air hockey and pool table. Love loved loved the hot tub. So great to sit out on the balcony in the early morning or late evening, and listen to the cicadas. Kitchen was well appointed, with all necessary plates/flatware/cookware. Liked having the outdoor grill, but will remember to bring our own charcoal next time. The washer/dryer was a real plus, too. The 3 level cabin was spacious with plenty of room for all of us to spread out.
CONS: Not many, but.....Wifi was very spotty, at best. We had a real hard time connecting the entire time we were there, and had planned to use the internet to find things to do. If you are a coffee drinker, they have a nice coffee maker, but you have to bring or buy your own filters. ?? Linens were crisp and clean, and beds were comfortable, but pillows were really small and cheap, might want to bring your own. And the community pool is rather small, but adequate.
Note, if you are planning to do any activities, you might want to wait to book until you get there-----we booked our horseback riding and rafting trips in advance (which were a BLAST!), and when we got to our cabin, found an envelope full of great coupons (thank you!) Unfortunately, we couldn't use them because we had pre-booked. :( Also, the cabins ARE very close together (surprising based on the photos) but they are well-engineered, with privacy walls between properties, so you can't see your neighbors unless you really tried. Also, while we were there, it seemed everyone was respectful of the 11 pm quiet time-----which we really appreciated with full days and tired kids!
We had such a great time, and left Eternally Yours already planning to book the same cabin for next year.
