We stayed 3 nights at the Cozy Bear Ridge, rented through Cobbly Nob Rentals. It was a wonderful place and a great location if you wanted to stay away from the over-touristy downtown Gatlinburg. Our main focus was the Smoky Mountain National Park and this was a perfect location to get away from everything else. The pictures on the website make it seem very isolated but there are other properties fairly close but nothing that I would say that would make it undesirable. The big hang-up I have is the lack of information they give when you check in. They give you some documents which, thanks to TripAdvisor I was prepared for. If you don't take out the trash, $50. And you have to clean up to a reasonable standard yet there are no cleaning products. The last morning we were leaving we had already run the dishwasher yet we had nothing to clean a glass after drinking out of it for breakfast.
I was also a little taken aback by the lack of friendliness from the staff of the rental company. We showed up about 2:30 PM and I know the check-in time is 3:00 PM but I would have figured we'd get a nice welcome and we're working on cleaning it but all we got was, "Come back at 3:00." I thought they were rather short and very uninterested in our business. So, to summarize...the property was EXTREMELY nice but the staff (which you don't see after check-in) could have been nicer.

This is the 2nd time we have rented a cabin from Cobbly Nob. The first time was wonderful, with the staff being exceptionally friendly and helpful. This time around, for several months, I have not gotten the proper attention or responses via phone calls, email or mail. Their answers were short and not customer friendly, for the most part. There was one older lady on the phone, sorry not to get her name, that was always nice. Our rental cabin was fine, but it had some minor problems, and when we called about them, got a rude response, yet again. They wanted extra money for a new tax Gatlinburg has imposed, but had not informed us before arrival. The air bed they gave us did not work. The info given us about sleeping accomodations, according to the description online, as well as in the rental contract, was not up to date, nor up to date via phone conversation. This caused minimal sleeping arrangement problems, but at that cost, you at least want to know what exactly is available. The maintenance man was very friendly. The cabin came equipped with everything we needed, right down to the utensils a large group would need, as well as all cooking/baking/serving dishes. Bedding/linens/bath towels were also good. Nice, newer furniture in most rooms, with a beautiful master bed carved with bears on the posts. Again, customer service needs improvement. Other than that, we might stay with them again, however, I think we might enjoy being a bit closer to town, as it can be a long drive (actually about 15 minutes) at the end of a long day spent in the nat'l park or town. The cabin we stayed in was King of the Mountain.

My husband and I got married at Almost Heaven Resort. We had 37 people join us and we all stayed at Cobbly Nob Cabins. Everyone loved their cabins. We stayed at the Copper Ridge. It was clean and absolutly beautiful. A group of 11 stayed in one cabin and had the cops called on them for playing the music. The next morining Cobbly Nob manager left a threating letter and had someone come in and "inspect" the cabin for damage. They still had 2 more nights in the cabin. They were not happy with the way they were treated and were even threatened to be arrested the night the cops came if they turned the radio on (by the way it was only 7 p.m.). Would not recommend cabins for a large group. Cobbly Nob managmenty was rude and uncalled for. everyone else in the group of 37 enjoyed their stay. Cabins are miles away from each other and difficult terrain to some.

Stayed in the Eagle's Roost in April and were very pleased with their operation. The place was spotless, very private and a perfect romantic getaway. We saw one other of their rentals and was also beautiful. Highly recommend these folks.

We stayed in this cabin for our honeymoon! It was absolutely wonderful. Very secluded, not another cabin in site. We did not even have cell phone service which we loved! The decor in the home was beautiful and very relaxing. We loved the fire place and the hot tub! We also enjoyed playing pool! We put the grill to use and had dinner in one evening! The cabin owners left a small notebook for those who stayed in the cabin to write about their experience. I loved reading the stories, too bad I lost the only ink pen we came with! Overall the experience was wonderful. The only thing I didn't like about the property was that it was very dark! There was only 2 small lights to light up the long walkway, we had to turn on our headlights to see to get up to the cabin door, but I still loved it!

We shared the Grand View with another family for a week last August, 2006. It was difficult to chose this rental company and cabin because of all the choices in the Gatlinburg, Pidgeon Forge area. We did alot of looking on the internet and spent a night narrowing the choice down to a couple. We liked the fact that Cobbly Nob isn't on the beaten track but is close enough to the towns and attractions. Great Smoky Mountain Park is literally across the road so there is plenty of nature and solitude right there. We chose "Grand View" cabin because it is described as having great views. After a 12 hour drive we met up with our friends at the Cobbly Nob office/store after dark. They had already checked in and had been to see the cabin and after the appropriate suspense they said the place is way better that they could have imagined! We followed them to the proper turn and went up a twisting gravel road then stopped at our private password operated driveway gate! Talk about feeling special! Some more climbing up to the cabin and no kidding, what a place and what views! The inside is beautiful and is better than described in the website. What a relief! We truly enjoyed the stay, the cabin, the views, etc. We had no complaint at all with the cabin and the management staff is great. No hidden fees or surprises. The "Grand View" sets on the top of a ridge with the decks facing south east and west so there are views sunrise to sunset. Could see the Milky Way on a clear night and even saw the lights of Gatlinburg one clear evening though it's about 15 miles away to the west. We could not see another structure from this cabin! Very private, secluded. You can hear the main road way down in the valley and the occasional barking doggy.
Food stores are on 321 near town so stopping for supplies is convenient. Plan on a 15-20 minute ride to go into Gatlinburg from this cabin. We didn't mind as we enjoyed the change from resort/tourist town to peace and quite.
I almost hesitate to recommend Cobbly Nob and the "Grand View" as the weeks may be harder to come by. We rented the 3rd week of August and it was warm in the day in town but was comfortable back at the cabin in the evening.
From our experience I say rent with confidence! I don't mind emails if you have any specific questions. davedrews@sbcglobal.net

WOW! What a great cabin, the view is truly amazing. We had a great stay over Thanksgiving weekend. The Cabin has everything we needed, big clean bedrooms, fireplace, hot tub and game room. Most of our time was spent on the rocking chair deck looking at the amazing view. The folks at Cobbly Nob Rental are very friendly and handled everything for us.
