“Views and value were great, but lack of parking at our cabin caused problems that could have ruined the stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2009

We stayed at Waltz in the Woods cabin on Upper Picadilly Lane in the Cobbly Nob Community for 3 nights. We got a good rate and enjoyed the cabin and the views from the cabin, but there was no suitable parking for this cabin, which caused a lot of problems. There was a "live in" homeowner in the house next door on the dead end mountain road, and she was unhappy with most of our parking choices and called the Sheriff's Dept and Cobbly Nob security on us about the parking. There was one small parking space down an 80 degree incline and it is doubtful and car could have gotten back up if it had been able to get down there. None of our party of six would rent that cabin again, which is part of Fontaine Rentals. because of the parking problems. Who needs that kind of hassle when you are on vacation and trying to relax?

My wife and I along with our three children had a wonderful time at a cabin called Whispering Pines. The front desk was extremely friendly and informative upon check in, much better than other company's we've dealt with. They gave us information on all the activities in the area and made suggestions on things to do. The cabin was very nice and clean. We had a great time in the hot tub and building fires. Excellent stay, we will definitely come back now that we are Gold Rewards Members.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Gatlinburg for a quick winter vacation in early December. We've visited Gatlinburg every year for the past three years and this vacation was our best yet! Our cabin was INCREDIBLE! We stayed at the Amazing Point of View. We had an great view of the National Park from the back deck of our cabin and it was also secluded from other cabins on the mountain. We mainly booked this cabin because of the view and the wood-burning fireplace; there weren't any big flat screen TVs or anything like that in our cabin, but that wasn't really important to us. There was an awesome two-person shower though as well as a hot tub and pool table.

Our experience with the Cobbly Nob staff was pleasant and we thought they were friendly and helpful. Besides calling to reserve the cabin and checking in, you don't really come into contact with anyone during your trip.

We were able to stay in our cabin for roughly $100/night due to a special they were having and it was well worth the money! The cabins of Cobbly Nob are roughly 15-20 minutes away from Gatlinburg and the National Park, but it never was a burden for us. We actually kind of preferred being away from everything. There is a small market down the mountain that had a few essentials, but there is an actual grocery store about 10 minutes down the road which we stopped at a couple of times. I was kind of hesitant to write this review, as I don't want this cabin to be booked the next time I travel to Gatlinburg but we just loved it so much I felt like it deserved a good review!

We stayed in a cabin managed by Cobbly Nobb in December 2007-the year before the cabin had been managed by a competing company.

Some changes we had noticed between the two visits: the quality of the cleanliness had gone downhill, WE (the customer paying for the cabin) were required to take our own trash down the hill to the trash dumping site, and the customer service at the main office leaves much to be desired. (By the way, I understand the reasoning behind immediate trash removal, but for a hundred bucks a night, someone could drive up the mountain and provide this service-the competing company that previously owned the company did this).

Despite the above concerns, we were still willing to stay at the cabin again because we enjoyed it, but when we called this summer to reserve it, we were told it was unavailable. Further, the reservation clerk MADE NO ATTEMPT WHATSOEVER to offer us another cabin. She behaved as though she couldn't care less whether we stayed in one of her cabins or not.

That is why this year, we are spending several hundred dollars on a cabin managed by a competing company. We have a funny policy of not staying where we are not wanted. Strangely enough, we want to spend our money where people treat us like a customer!

  • Liked — The cabin, amenities and view is great!
  • Disliked — The people who manage and clean the cabin!

Wow! Our cabin was great! We stayed in Mountain Siesta. It was way on top of the hill! Great views, great cabin!

When we were driving to get the the office, it was a little farther up the road than our GPS said it was. We arived after 5pm, so we had to use our "code" they gave us to open the box to get our packet with our key. You then have to drive a little farther up the road to get into the cabin area. The roads are a little scary if you are not used to driving up and down twisty roads. We followed the map they gave us and went up and up the hill! My kids were scared of the road-it's really narrow and sometimes close to the edge.

It is well worth the drive after you see the cabin! It is beautiful! Nice well equipt kitchen, dining area, living area, bedrom loft with pool table and jacuzzi tub, upstairs bathroom, downstairs bedroom, bathroom, and laundy area.
It had a nice huge deck with chairs, tables, grill, and the best part--a big hot tub/jacuzzi!!!
The decor in the cabin is real tastefull. It had 2 sofas-one of which was a hide-away bed, a coffee table, nice size tv, and a stone fireplace. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, cups, plates and silverware. The fridge had ice and water in the door. The washer and dryer were stacked in between the kitchen and downstairs bathroom. The downstairs bathroom has a stand up shower that was spacious. The downstairs bed had a king(I think) bed and a tv. Upstairs is the loft area with huge vaulted log celing, the pool table and second bedroom. It has the jacuzzi tub in the room and a sink and toilet in the bathroom.
We loved it here!! It is a great value! A great place to relax.

The view is GREAT!!! You overlook the Smoky Mountains.

Things I would reccomend bringing--soap, food and drinks, laundy soap, tissues, bathing suits, and shampoo.

This cabin is huge and a great value.

the cons: a bit of a drive from downtown Gatlinburg and twisty narrow roads that don't have yellow or white lines painted on the edges, and the roads are not well lit.

  • Liked — the big cabin, the view, the value, relaxation
  • Disliked — the drive up to the cabin, a bit far from town

After many hours searching the internet for the perfect cabin to rent, we found the Cobbly Nob Rentals and booked "Amazing Point of View." It was recently remodeled and we were the first renters--WOW the view, the new pine wood floors, fantantic kitchen, gigantic master shower 3' by 5' and a deck with an unobstructed view of the Smokies...we loved every day April 14-18 2008. We were three miles up a curving road from the nearest highway and cooked breakfast and dinner. Hiking trails were less than 30 minutes away and the weather was Dogwood winters. We loved the outdoor hot tub and of course the ever changing view out the back of this cabin. No close neighbors, and easy access with a totally private drive. Now, the only regret we have is that we left a laptop power cord in this unit. We called the day we left 4 hours away on our journey home. We were told that the cleaning crew would not interupt renters but they would locate this item. Well, after a week we called again, and again and on Monday May 16, I called the cabin number by mistake and the renter spoted the cord and took it down to the office---I called Cobbly Nob rentals and gave them my credit card to pay for shipping and handling. Well, on May 19 a box with postage of $10 was handed to me by my postman. Cobbly Nob charged $27.38 for shipping and handling---Wow what an AMAZING POINT of VIEW this company has for lost items!!!!!

  • Liked — The privacy, the quiet location, and the amazing view of the Smoky Mountains.
  • Disliked — The fact that the cleaning crew never found our laptop computer power cord after a month and a renter located it. I was charged $27.38 for a $10.00 uninsured package to be delivered.

My husband and I recently stayed at Cobbly Nob for one week. We were in the cabin called "bear hug." The cabin was spotless when we arrived and so much more than we expected. Everything that was listed on the website was there are in perfectly working order.

This a such a great alternative to honky tonk Gatlinburg. The cabins are about 20 minutes outside of Gatlinburg, but there is a grocery store about 5-8 mins away. They are built into a hillside and feel very secluded. Our cabin had a pretty view of the mountains. One warning, the drive up is very steep, so in winter I would suggest 4WD!

We went on long hikes in the park almost every day and came home to a lovely hottub on the deck. We cooked almost every meal, saving hundreds of dollars on restaurant bills.

This is a great way to travel, I would whole heartedly recommend Cobbly Nob- I cannot account for all the cabins, though they looked similar from the outside.

One hint- we flew into knoxville so couldn't bring a whole lot with us. If you are driving, bring some laundry detergent, dish soap with you. It seemed a shame to have to buy full sizes of these, as they don't supply them.

  • Liked — clean, romantic, convenient, well equipped, felt like home
  • Disliked — property did not supply TP, paper towels, cleaning supplies
