“In a Word - Unforgettable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Thirty years ago my wife and I came to this exact location for our honeymoon. Over the last few years I've searched and searched for "Cobly Nob Resort" in the hopes of staying there again. No luck. So when we arrived in Gatlinburg we didn't have a whole lot of hope that we would even be able to find the place. But we stopped on the way out of Gatlinburg at another hotel that we thought might be it and they remembered the name Cobly Nob Resort and told us where to find it. We drove out the 11 miles to Bent Creek and soon realized that it is now owned by Diamond Resorts, so we thought there wouldn't be much of a chance of getting a place to stay. Well, the staff were just amazingly accommodating. They arranged for us to stay in an amazing one bedroom condo, that was certainly a whole lot better than what we had stayed in thirty years before. We had a beautiful and comfortable bedroom, a bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower, a nice living room with gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, and a small dining area, as well as washer and dryer and screened in porch. We stayed two nights, and if we hadn't gotten called away by a family emergency we certainly would have stayed longer.

When we checked out I mentioned to Beth at reception that we had stayed here thirty years ago, and she went and found pictures of the previous building where we stayed. A few days ago she even mailed us a postcard of the place for our scrap book.

The attention to detail at this place is impeccable. The staff are way over the top in their kindness, helpfulness, and friendliness. We had an absolutely fantastic time here that will never be forgotten!

We stayed 3 nights beginning the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It's a nice place and our 1 bedroom was a great size with a gas fireplace, small kitchen, large jacuzzi bathroom and screened porch. It's ten plus miles from Gatlinburg up the East Parkway, but it was nice to be away from the holiday mania. We told the staff they needed to replace the sofa and chair upon checkout and were told they had planned to do so and wished we had mentioned it earlier and they would have given us boards to place under the cushions...lesson learned! This is a golfing resort so if you're not into it, there isn't anything to do here. That said, we'd go back for the peace and quiet.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about your recent stay here at Bent Creek Golf Village. We were delighted to hear that our accommodations, amenities, location, and staff met, if not exceeded your expectations. It was a little concerning to see that you were not able to locate any additional activities here besides golf. We have a game room, fitness center, pool table, and additional activities that are handled by our activities staff that will entertain our guests of all ages. That being said, we do really appreciate your recommendation, and look forward to seeing you again soon!

My family and I (wife and two children ages 10 and 8) just spent two nights at the resort and loved it; very clean and quiet in a picturesque setting. We had a single bedroom and the kids slept on the sleeper which worked just fine; a little cramped but no complaints. The indoor pool was great as was the game room (my son learned to play pool). The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only reason I did not give it an excellent rating is there were a few ants in the bathroom and the internet was not free. However, I am glad the internet was not free as I decided not to purchase (very small fee) and stayed "offline" for two and a half days and loved it. We will be returning to Bent Creek and plan on making it an annual trip.

Our family stayed here this past weekend, Oct. 20-23, 2012 and it was awesome as always. We stay there every year since our timeshare Diamond Resorts owns the property. The people are so friendly, the property is so well maintained and the rooms are perfect for our family travel. We always get a 2 bedroom lockoff. No matter if it is the golf lockoff or the standard rooms, you could not ask for a nicer place to stay.

Bent Creek is about 15 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg but the quietness and beauty makes it the perfect location for us. I have gone to Gatlinburg all of my life and have stayed in downtown and away. This is by far my favorite place to stay when it comes to family time.

Stayed 7 nights in a 500 square foot unit with my wife and 10 year old daughter. Would opt for the 800 square foot unit with a fireplace next time but we still had plenty of room. Great little condo- well appointed with upper scale utensils, pots, pans, etc. Resort is about 10 miles outside of Gatlinburg in a quiet beautiful location. Golfed 3 times and loved it. After 3:00pm it's only $30.00 and so worth it. Practically had the course to myself in peak season. Beautiful layout with Bent Creek meandering throughout. The back nine is very entertaining and challenging as the course begins to move into the mountainside. I hit the jacuzzi every night and I was always the only person there (nice). Staff was truly great. Very helpful and friendly. Using a tip from a staff member, I was able to catch trout less than 3 miles from the condo with spinning gear but bring your fly fishing gear if you have it. Great combo having such a secluded, quiet resort and the bustling town of Gatlinburg just a few minutes away.

Room Tip: Make sure to request a room (condo) overlooking the golf course if that is your preference. It seems...

From the second we arrived the experience was perfect. Was in town for a 4 day weekend and had the best experience at Bent Creek I've ever had at a hotel. I was treated like an old friend by the staff when I arrived although it was my first time at this property. Staff was friendly, efficient, and went out of their way to make sure everything was great right down to the phone call from the assistant manger to follow up to be sure the accomodations were acceptable. The grounds are picture postcard beautiful. The rooms were clean, neat, spacious, and fully stocked. We had 2 one bedroom condos with a balcony at each. After staying here I will definately be back and also look for Diamond's other properties when I travel elsewhere. It was a short drive to the Gatlingburg downtown and regular roads (not the s curve pitched roads that are so common in this area). Our cell phones are ATT and did not get reception at the property (I thought this was a good thing) however one in our party did have service on verizon. We did have high speed internet through our ATT account at no additional charge. The grounds of the complex are expansive and clean and well kept. There are gazebos with gas grills if a cookout are in your plans along with the stove, oven, and microwave in the room. The best recommendation I can give this property is the next time I am in the area I will be staying at the Bent Creek Golf Resort.

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem look for a first floor room. No elevator to the second floor.
