“Wonderful cabin, great vacation”

people found this review helpful

My husband, my dog, and I visited Hunker Down the last week of September/first week of October. I had read all of the visitor reviews on Trip Advisor and Flip Key and had looked at all of the pictures that the owners had posted. I had very high expectations of the cabin prior to our arrival due to all of the praise it had gotten and the appearance of the property in the pictures. My expectations were met if not exceeded once we got there!

The cabin is very cozy and welcoming. Our doggie also warmed right up to the place. Everything was very clean and working properly. You could tell that everything was maintained very well. I loved looking at all the different styles of finishing on the wood used throughout the interior and on the porch. The porch was absolutely lovely and we spent quite a bit of time on the swing and the rocking chairs. The hot tub was also very enjoyable. We also found that the kitchen was fully equipped and even had some things furnished that I would've never thought to cook with while on a trip.

I would agree with the other reviews that the location is the perfect distance from the tourist towns in the area. A short drive, 15 min or less, and you can be in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg but once back at Hunker Down you'd never know it!

We had a great time and loved our stay. We'd love to make a return trip sometime, maybe during a different season just to see some different scenery.

There are only two items that I'd bring up to anyone thinking of staying in Hunker Down. First, if you are looking for daily cleaning & turn down services this is not the place for you. This is more of a DIY vacation spot. Secondly, I would recommend making sure that the vehicle that you are taking has pretty decent brakes & tires, but then again you should probably always do that when traveling!

“convenient & cozy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What a cozy cabin. Very clean & comfortable. We especially loved the wrap around porch. The girls had a great time watching the big TVs & playing Wii. They enjoyed the jacuzzi in the living room. We also took advantage of the private hot tub on the side porch. The kitchen is fully equipped & the washer & dryer spoiled me. Very nice. The location is far enough from the hustle & bustle to enjoy the quiet & close enough for it to be convient to the fun. The only thing I would change is the crazy hill you have to go down to get to the cabin. It was OK in the summer, but I don't think we would stay in the winter. There is no way I would attempt that major incline in the snow & ice. Owners were awesome to work with & we loved out stay!
