“Convenient to Activities”
Reviewed June 20, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The location is very convenient to Dollywood, shopping, and dining. We enjoyed the view from the balcony which is very wooded and private. The community pool looked nice, but we were did not have time to enjoy it. The area is quiet but close to town. Parking is a little tight if you drive a larger vehicle but it worked. The cabin is spacious and has everything you would need for a nice time away. We rented a smaller cabin through Fireside a few months before and had been very pleased. This particular cabin does need some slight updates to make it more desirable. The towel rods had fallen in two of the bathrooms. Towels and wash cloths were provided, but there were not quite enough for a unit that sleeps 8 people. There is a nice washer and dryer so we just washed them frequently. Extra blankets and pillows were thrown in the closet floor and a sprite bottle was left in the floor of the basement bedroom. The unit is in need of cosmetic touch ups especially in the basement where the walls are very scuffed and dented. A good deep clean is needed (under beds, closets, tops of curtains).

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2014

This Cabin was great! Had everything you needed, plenty of room, loved the view from the balcony. Easy drive to attractions, not far from Pigeon Forge but out enough from streets so the privacy was great, would love to rent again, can't say enough about this place, was very happy when we stayed here.
