Cabin rental company - Reccomendation?

We are planning a trip to Gatlinburg in late April and are overwhelmed by the number of places available for rent. Was hoping sk

Wine could reccomend a rental company/agent that could assist. We are planning to spending of our time in the park and prefer to stay in Gatlinburg within a 10 minute drive to the park and to the restaurants/shops in town. Looking for a 1BR with nice unobstructed mountain view and hot tub on porch overlooking mountains. Thanks for your help!!

I've rented through Jackson Mountain Homes the last three times I was down there. Some of their one bedroom cabins have gorgeous views of the mountains! I've never had any problems with the cabins and the office staff is great....very helpful. I like the Arts and Crafts area as well as Black Bear Falls. Very close to downtown and the park entrance. I hope to go again late April myself and am in the process of cabin searching, too but will probably stay where I did last year. Hope you find what you are looking for and enjoy your vacation!

In the past, we used Auntie Belham's & were happy with them. Our last few trips have been through Sunset Cottages, which are a little more budget-friendly. For our upcoming trip, we are booked through Elk Springs Resort. They offer what I would describe as luxury cabins. We decided to splurge on this trip. So far, they have been very nice & helpful.

The only rental company we have used in the area that I would not recommend was ERA in the Smokies. The cabin was not as described or pictured on their website and the staff was less than friendly.

Hope this helps! Have a great vacation!!

We're going with Chalet Village too. This is the first time though. The price is good. 3rd night is half price or 4th night is free. Reviews were good also.

Thanks for all of the recommendations everyone! We decided yesterday morning to go with a cabin from Jackson Mountain homes in the bear creek falls area. It looks nice and just what we were looking for. We found out about the landslide in newfound gap road later yesterday and are really concerned about how it will affect our trip. From what I am hearing, it sounds like we should still be able to access clingmans dome and most of the activities on the TN side. Also, maybe we could have got a better deal by booking later on. I'm sure the road closure will impact rental vacancy in the area

I think someone posted Timber Top's website above (yourcabin.com). They are wonderful! We stayed in Chalet D'Amour last year. It's a cheaper cabin, has some cheesy decor, but the views are AMAZING. It's up Ski Mountain and it's only about a 10 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg. We really enjoyed our stay. Timber Tops also offers a luxury pass for all guests which will save you $$ on certain attractions! We were able to zip line, go to the aquarium, a show, and a couple other museums for half the price! They are a wonderful and well managed company, I don't think you would be disappointed. They also have a ton of cabins to choose from! :)

I read somewhere (on another post) that the road closure is to be opened back up around May 15TH but not sure how accurate that info is.
