“Nice log cabin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

I agree with nearly everything on TA. The pros - clean, quiet, kids loved the log cabin. Cons - the wi-fi doesn't work often, lots of things which would have been handy, not in kitchen. I'd read about how great the bathrooms are etc. well, to be honest the tiling in our bathroom (159) was more like crazy paving - but I was staying four nights, not living there. And yes both bathrooms had his and hers sinks - but in a three bedroom log cabin I wondered why every time I went in there. The sealant is mouldy and grouting cracked, but I see that in nearly every hotel bathroom and I'm picking now. Summary, if you're going to visit the Smokys, want somewhere clean and quiet, it's here. As for the location, it was ideal for us. It's out of town, but having spent the last day of our holiday walking up then down the main street in Gatlinburg I can honestly say that was a blessing.

Room Tip: All the log cabins looked good from the outside.

This property was incredible. The cabin was clean and beautiful. Large bathrooms and everything we needed in the kitchen. Loved the Hot Tub on the back porch and the beautiful view for my morning coffee on the front porch. The pool was absolutely gorgeous as well. The property is away from the hustle and bustle, but not too far to go participate when you want to. The property manager, Charlie, was very warm, friendly and helpful. The ladies in the front office were the same, very informative on what to do and where to go. We ended up finding FREE activities that we liked more than the paid ones thanks to them! The only thing we didn't like was the spotty wifi service and absolutely NO cell service. But, something can be said for going "unplugged" on vacation. My family has wonderful memories of this place and we will definitely be returning! Many thanks to Charlie & Co. for a job well done!

This was a very nice place to stay. We stayed in a condo unit that was very spacious and well cared for with everything we needed. The property was well maintained and and when building they thought about the preservation of the trees to keep the area wooded. The only issue we had while there was connectivity ... our phones (AT&T) did not get reception --- however, the resort has accommodated for this by making land line calls free (even Long Distance). Also, the free wireless worked the first couple of days but stopped after that. I asked about it, and they said they'd try to get it fixed.

We had a wonderful time there --- nice being away from the Gatlinburg crowds.

This place was far and above our expectations. I have been a GDV member for 7 years and we have stayed at some really great places but White Oak Cabins beats them all. We had a 2 bedroom cabin with a Jacuzzi tub in the corner of the master bedroom and a 4 person hot tub out on the screened in porch. Right out side our upstairs master bedroom was a pool table the my kids just loved. The pool was a little cold for me but my 2 kids didn't mind, they loved the waterfalls. The pool was beautiful though. We can't wait to go back

I recently stayed in one of the cabins at White Oak Lodge & Resort with my wife on our honeymoon for the better part of a week. I couldn't ask for a better place to stay. They are located just outside of Gatlinburg, and its only a short drive into the town. The pictures on their sight are great and give a very accurate picture of the cabins. I recommend White Oak Lodge to anyone, and we will definitely be coming back.

Room Tip: I recommend a cabin on the back row.

This was our first visit to White Oak Lodge & Resort and we plan to visit again. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo which had all the amenities of home. The whole resort is spotless and we were very impressed that the Owner and Contractor protected the trees when laying out this resort.
Our visit was during Memorial Day weekend and even though the resort was quite busy we never heard noise from any of our neighbors. The management and staff were very friendly and extremely helpful in providing information about the area including driving instructions that allowed you to travel to your destination bypassing the congestion in Gatlinsburg. This is a wonderful place to stay if you do not mind driving to the various attractions.

First, let me share the only negative thing about this cabin. There are only boards separating the rooms. We had the downstairs bedroom and my son had the upstairs bedroom and we could hear everything he did or said. I always bring earplugs so it was fine for me, but that is a consideration in staying here. We didn't hear outside noise, but inside we could hear everything. Now the good things! This cabin was exceptionally clean. We had a 3 bedroom one (156). The water pressure was strong and hot. The kitchen had everything we could want. The rooms were large and spacious. The hot tub was one of our highlights! We used the grill and our steaks were perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and loved the screened in back porch. The icemaker was helpful. The large upstairs bath tub was fantastic. Each bathroom had 2 sinks and that was nice as well. The owners were helpful and informative. The grounds were very neat and clean. The wireless internet worked without a hitch. Everything was perfect. It is not in town and not within walking distance to town, but that was OK with us. There are restaurants close and the supermarket is not far either. We do not recommend Geno's Pizza. They were expensive and although they are about 7 miles away, they would not deliver. The toppings were scarce and the pizza was unremarkable. Not worth the drive to pick up or the money. Greenbrier restaurant was a treat. Hungry Bear BBQ was really good! Movie rentals are very reasonable at the supermarket, but with all the channels included in the TV, there was plenty to watch! Can't wait to come back to this place. The pool looked wonderful and inviting, but we were so busy and so content with the hot tub, we didn't even go there! You won't be disappointed with this resort.
