“Mixed Feelings”
Reviewed March 28, 2011

This is the 3rd trip to Gatlinburg for me and my husband and the 3rd time we've stayed in a rental cabin. This time we stayed with Cobbly Nob at a cabin called "Dreams and Streams." The staff at Cobbly Nob was very friendly and helpful at the time of checkin, he even suggested some sights for us to see and knew the area really well. But the first day we noticed the cabin's fire extinguisher was missing and notified them. The staff member said they'd get one to the cabin the next day and it never came the 5 days we were there. I'm glad we didn't need it. The cabin was in a fabulous location, but not as clean as the other 2 cabins we've stayed in (each with a different rental company). There were cobwebs in every corner and dust all along the walls and covering every light fixture. This particular cabin is in need of a little TLC, including better lighting and light bulbs that aren't burnt out.
We had a great time and Gatlinburg and the Smokies are a great place to vacation. We'll be back, but probably with a different rental company.

Stayed in Cobbly Nob by a friends advice.The cabin is called Campbell Station
sleeps 12 comfortably. it was a last minute reservation to see the snow. I took our breath away. We opened the door and felt like we had entered a dream home.This cabin is decorated like in the cabin magazines.The kitchen was awesome.The bedrooms were amazing , we were like the three bears . Every bedroom was different. Every bed was either memory foam,latex or whatever. We have stayed in other cabins beforeand literally could not sleep because of the mattress.These were GREAT.We bought food and hunkered down for 4 days found everything we needed in kitchen, better than my own. The dining room table was my favorite place with a beautiful view of the snow on mountains.we could see the entire back of Smokeys.Pool table was great as well as the Tv room.The entire cabin is spread out perfectly for privacy... We spent alot of time next to the Fireplace on large deck with great seating.This cabin is everything it says it is and more. We wanted to cry when we left with a heavy heart. but we allready booked it again for summer.I cant say enough. YES YES YES you will love it.

We stayed at the White House, it was filthy. There were 10 towels in a house supposed to hold 16 people. The staff we spoke with was unbelievably rude, some girl who sounded like she was 16 and couldn't care less. The whole house was filthy, the stove didn't work, and dishes were very dirty. We had to wash everything before we used it. The tubs were full of dead bugs and scum. Don't stay with Cobbly Nob if you want a good vacation!!

Our experience with Cobbly Nob Rentals is based on how bad we was treated by the manager. The manager was extremely rude and some of the front desk employees also was unwilling to provide much help. We stayed in the Whispering Pines cabin; the cabin was okay. It was clean and had most of what was advertised. Our opinion of this vacation is not to stay in a cabin that is under this management team. We were talked to like we were unwanted guest and we told my the manager that he would come up to the cabin and remove us (we were snowed in during Christmas and couldn't get down the driveway and ask several times for a shovel and never was giving one. we had to shovel out using a baking pan) We even had to contact our attorney that in return called the manager to explain our situation. We had to cancel three days of activities because of no help. We realize that you can not control mother nature but you could be sensible enough to offer some kind of compensation for our loss. We did go the Gatlinburg to stay locked in the cabin. The main roads was cleared the next day but the manager kept reminding us that they did not clear the drives and that we should had come on a 4 wheel drive. I feel like we paid for three night to do nothing but watch TV and play pool.

My husband and I were looking forward to returning to Cobbly Nob after we had been there about 10 years ago and had a wonderful experience. This time our chalet (Mountain Getaway) was extremely disappointing. First off, the only entrance was a deteriorating deck with rotting wood, splinters, rusty protruding nailsand a hot tub in the corner spilling water on this already rickety deck hanging 50 or more feet above ground level. We felt this was too dangerous to even get near. Inside the cabin was filthy with fuz on lamp shades and the wooden blinds. The appliances were coming apart. The dishwasher was filthy. The carpet was scarred with multiple burns and rips. The cookware was deplorable,scratched,dented and missing lids. The grill on the deck was a mess. We also worried about escaping this place in caseof fire since there was only one way out. Because every window was 50 feet or more straight down , the deck had only one exit which was right where the fireplce was. A fire caused by that fireplace could have trapped us. We were so disappointed and freaked out about the filth and unsafe conditions that we did not complete our reservations. We left a day and a half early. We wound not recommend Cobbly Nob to anyone and we will never consider returning. It even soured our total experience in Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains.

We stayed in Dreams 2 Nite the last week in October for our first trip to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains.
The cabin overall was clean and well kept. We did not cook any meals but we did eat cold breakfast there and packed lunches to take into the park. The refrigerator was clean and had an ice maker. We were surprised that there was not a toaster available.
There was a half bath on the same level as the living room and kitchen.
The upper deck is large and overlooks the woods. The colors were beautiful that week. The hot tub was clean, no rust. We used it every evening after hiking.
The bedroom is downstairs. There was not much storage space. There are no hangers furnished. We found the bed to be uncomfortable. It was a pillow top mattress but it was worn out. The pillow top rinkled which made it uncomfortable to lay on and the mattress sagged to the middle causing my husband to roll toward the middle. The pillows were too flat for our comfort and the pillow cases barely covered them. The sheets that were furnished did not have the deep pockets that fit a pillow top mattress so they just hugged the pillow top part of the mattress. After three nights my husband moved to the couch for a better nights sleep!
We thought the design of the bathroom attached to the bedroom was strange because there was no door between the bedroom and bathroom. The towels were light weight. Hooks were funished to hang them instead of a towel bar so they didn't dry enough to use twice. I did wash towles several times during the week.
The staff in the office was always very helpful with suggestions on things to do and how to get there.
The deli had good food at reasonable prices.
We would go back to Cobbly Nob but we would try a different cabin.
