“Wonderful experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2010

We arrived with 9 adults and 3 children under 3 yrs. old. Misty Mountain Lodge was ready for us when we arrived. The house was really a wonderful place to have a vacation. It was stocked well with utensils and dishes, with extra dishwasher soap. Everything worked, and was cleaned nicely. We originally had the Lumberjack Lodge reserved for a week, but unfortunately it had been forclosed on. Brandi and Kim, who manage the resort, handled the situation wonderfully. We understood that the forclosed property was beyond their control. They gave us an alternative plan, which included another 5 bedroom house for 5 days, then move our crew to two different cabins for the remainder of the stay. The last two nights were spent at the Diamond Mine and Mountain Fever. Both of these cabins were just as nice, or nicer than the 5 bedroom. They gave us a nice discount for our troubles. The resort was located close to the arts and crafts area, which feature local artists. It was situated within an easy drive to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the park. If we return to the Smokies for a family vacation, or are just passing through for a couple of nights, we will definitely stay at the Elk Springs Resort again.

A clean and comfortable cabin with a splendid view of Mt. Leconte from the windows and the deck. Pleasantly, this pretty cabin had everything the website listed and more! Our family will stay again! Also, the directions and contacts from Elk Springs Resort answered every question prior to our arrival. P.S. Enjoyed the rocking chairs!

We recently stayed at Elk Springs Resort in Gatlinburg at the Silvercreek. We loved everything about it. The location was off the beaten path yet very close to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The check in procedure was great- no need to stop at an office- just drive straight to cabin and head on in! When we got there, the cabin was very clean and the air conditioner was already on and the cool cabin felt great on a hot July day. We thought there was a problem with the hot tub because only half of the jets worked. So we called maintenance and someone was there within a few minutes, only to show us how to turn the other jets on (we were hot tub rookies). Our trip to Gatlinburg would have been OK had we stayed in a hotel, but staying at the Silvercreek made it excellent. If we vacation again in Gatlinburg, we would undoubtedly stay at the Elk Springs Resort again. Don't go anywhere else.

We stayed at Elk Springs Resort in the Majestic Views cabin during late July 2010. The booking process and check in process could not have been easier. The prompt email communication from Elk Springs Resort made everything so easy and was very helpful in answering my questions. The cabin was super clean and absolutely beautiful. Three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs, along with a sitting area with a TV. Hot tub is off of this level. Main level has a spacious living area, dining area, and gourmet kitchen with absolutely everything we needed, including a gas grill right off the kitchen. Downstairs level had one bedroom, living area, pool table, bathroom, and washer/dryer. Both the main level and the downstairs had fire places. The view was beautiful!!! The cabin was conveniently located close to the Arts & Crafts community. There is a grocery store about 2 miles away. My fiance, his teenage daughter, and his 8 year old son made the trip with me. We initially booked for a 3 night stay; however, we were having such a great time, I emailed Elk Springs at the last minute to book and extra night. They responded within 30 minutes and comfirmed the extra night at a great discounted price!!! We hated to leave, but we can't wait to go back next year. We shopped and experienced the attractions of Gatlinburg, The Smoky Mountains, and Pigeon Forge by day. By night, we cooked meals, watched movies, shot pool, played cards, and relaxed in the hot tub. It was the perfect vacation at an amazing location! Thank you Elk Springs Resort!!!!

This was our second time to Gatlinburg. Our experience with Elk Springs Resort was absolutely hassle free! We were able to go directly to our cabin which is so convenient especially after traveling several hours in the car. The cabin was spotless and decorated so nicely. We had a beautiful view of the Smoky Mts. also. We loved everything about it!!

Our cabin (A Desire Fulfilled) was absolutely perfect. It was clean enough for my one-year-old to crawl around on the floor. It was comfortable enough to host her 92-year-old great-grandmother for dinner. It was convenient enough for trips to the grocery store, Pigeon Forge, and attractions in the area. The management makes check-in and check-out a breeze. We had a ton of fun playing pool and foosball. The setting and the huge wall of windows was absolutely gorgeous. We will definitely be coming back!

Out of the last 16 years that we have stayed in Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge, this is the cleaniest one we have stayed in. Not having the hassle of going to the office before and after arrivel and departure is another plus. The cabin we stayed at was Cherokee Charm. AWESOME CHALET!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
