“Snuggled Inn at Elk Spring Resort”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Overall the cabin is in good shape. I wouldn't give it the 5 star rating that I've seen on this website though. First, the view is of the woods, nice if that's what you want but we were expecting a mountain view, at least a partial mountain view. I was told by Elk spring staff that it's a wooded view but behind the trees is a mountain view. Well this may be the case in the winter when all the leaves have fallen but in spring/summer/fall there is no mountain to be seen because of the forest.

Second, the shower drains did not work well. There are 2 baths. We called maintenance and he fixed one of them. But the tower shower he said will not drain well because of the way it was constructed: not enough slope in the tiles. Well this makes the showering experience suboptimal as you stand in a puddle of water.

The drive to downtown Gatlinburg is about 10 minutes or so. The cabin is in very good shape, the kitchen is nice. The hot tub was nice. Our expectation was that we would have a mountain view and this was a disappointment. But if a wooded view is your cup of tea then this cabin is a good choice.

My family stayed at "Grin and Bear It!" The house was gorgeous! Warm, inviting and well appointed. The home was clean and included everything we needed. The hot tub was clean and in good working order. I will remind everyone that the home is a log cabin in the woods. Spiders and other creepy crawlers will be around so keep that in mind. Other cabins will be within sight so be prepared, but we did not have any issues with privacy. The town was an easy drive and just the right distance away. If you are looking for the peace and relaxation of the woods or the hustle and bustle of the town these houses will work. I hope I get the chance to return again.

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. It was beautiful, clean and the bed was awesome!!! So glad that we chose Elk Springs for our honeymoon! Our only regret was we should have stayed longer :)

We stayed at Elk Springs for Labor Day Weekend. We had a party of 11 and the house was plenty big and everything you could need. The theatre room was great and we will be coming back to Elk Springs in future.

A co-worker suggested Elk Springs (she had stayed there)when we were planning our trip and I'm so glad she did. The cabins are super nice and clean plus the grounds are beautiful. We brought our dog along and was able to walk him on the streets, hills were not too steep. We were very pleased with the location also, especially close to shopping and grocery store. My only regret is I wish I had planned a whole week there as it is definitely a retreat.

We switched to Elk Springs for a change from the other resort, well we got one. Their Cabins were in EXCELLENT condition, everything worked the staff were kind and professional.We did not half to travel back to the office for supplies because Elk Springs did everything before we arrived and over the phone. We stayed in Moonstruck Cabin and it has a great view of the Smoky Mountains. We will be back!

We stayed at Finders Keepers @ the Elk Springs Resort. We absolutely loved every minute. The place was decorated very nicely, just as the pictures reflect, but, for me, it was even nicer in person. We had a party of 6 and had plenty of space. The char gril, movie theatre room, washer dryer and screened in porch were all just bonuses. The furniture was very nice and the cabin was clean. We had everything that we needed. Thankfully, the ESR website mentioned that you should bring your own seasonings and foil. We grilled each night! The kitchen and home had everything else that you have at home!! This was our first trip to the Mountains, but will not be our last with this Resort. From speaking with Dan on the first call, the directions that were given, the convenience of checking in and out over the phone with the express service, the customer service and property were all unbeatable. I will tell everyone that I know about this wonderful place!

Room Tip: Tip -- Stay longer... You will not want to check out!!!!
