Couldn't have asked for a better spot for our honeymoon! We stayed in "Cuddle up", the view was just amazing from our cabin. We could see the lights from downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin was nicely kept up. The large king size bed was wonderful to sleep in. And of course the hot tub on the deck looking over Gatlinburg just breath taking. The staff was very friendly. We found the road to get to the cabin was a little hard at first, but got used to it quick. We actually seen two cubs and a mama bear playing in the small creek below! The kitchen had everything we needed, also love the gas fireplace with the large screen tv. We cannot wait to come back!

My husband and another couple stayed at the Greenbrier for four nights in October 2012. We had stayed at this same property 14 years ago, and were really disappointed at the condition of the property we had really loved during our first visit. Our first clue that the property had not been maintained was the exterior and the weak boards on the deck. The light fixture next to the door was broken and there were cobwebs everywhere. Things didn't get any better when we went inside: dirty floors, more cobwebs, filthy carpet on the stairs, three blankets in the bedroom closet that smelled of mouse or animal urine, lightbulbs needing replacing and none available, refrigerator gasket torn off, poorly equipped kitchen with warped and damaged pans to cook in, mouse droppings upstairs in the second bedroom, dusty, and dirty broken down furniture in the living room with a coffee table that had been chewed on by an animal of some kind. There was a light in the stairway that had a short and kept clicking on and off all night, damaged walls and torn bed linens. We made lengthy lists of the problems and dropped them off at the management office twice so that we wouldn't be charged with damage. It was obvious that no one at Cobbly Nob Rentals had been at the Greenbrier for a long time. If the condition of this property is indicative of the other Cobbly Nob Rentals, this company needs to start checking the properties regularly. We paid nearly $800 for four nights, and we were offered no compensation for the condition of the Greenbrier. Avoid this rental company unless you can actually check out the place you're renting before you pay a deposit.

Room Tip: Insist on seeing the unit before you rent. The property we rented was in no condition to be rented.

My wife and I manage hotels...so we KNOW clean, in working order and accomodating! From the reservation to the check out, the staff was very outgoing and helpful with directions and information. He even provided us with a list of things to do when we return before winter! The cabin was absolutely spotless! Everything in the cabin worked just as it should, too! Our cabin was Amazing Point of View...and the view was absolutely well AMAZING! This cabin is secluded and not close to other cabins. We didn't want to leave the cabin for anything! The gas grill on the deck is a very nice touch! It worked great and we grilled both nights while there. We frequent the Gatlinburg area. However, for previous visits we have ALWAYS stayed with another cabin rental facility. Due to our short booking window, nothing was available at our "previous home away from home". The reservationist was SO kind when I called, I just booked without hesitation. We will not return to our previous company. We WILL return to Cobbly Nob for all future visits. They have a "frequent guest" program, the location is fantastic (away from the hustle and bustle), the view is AWESOME and the cabin is beautiful and so comfortable. I encourage anyone that frequents the Gatlinburg area to try Cobbly Nob! And if you get lucky, make sure to choose the 2 bedroom Awesome point of view cabin! You have my promise, you will not be disappointed!
Thanks to all the team at Cobbly Nob for making two very tired stressed people refreshed and relaxed. We are hoping to return in just 6 weeks! It is AMAZING!
Also, the country store (next to the rental office) is great! Very clean, organized and has everything you would need that you forgot. We didn't try the food at the cafe there but we heard lots of good comments! Give them a try! You will be AMAZED too!
Sunrise and Sunsets are great from the desk. Galinburg is a short 10 miles from the cabin.

Room Tip: Amazing Point of View is AMAZING!

We have just returned from another stay at Campbell Station rented thru Cobbly Knob. I don't remember how many times we have rented this cabin. Must be five or six times at least and we plan to rent on our next visit in the spring. We always find this house very clean and well stocked for cooking. There are ample stations for the flat screen TV. Although there is not much of a mountain view here, the wrap around porch (only accessable thru the house) is very inviting and private. Trees surround the porch making it pretty private. The fireplace on the porch is nice on cool nights. The beds are very comfortable. Like I said, we will return.

This was our second stay at a Cobbly Nob Rental home. We weren't completely wowed the first time we stayed but it was good enough to go back a second time. Most recently we stayed in "Angel's Touch". After enjoying dinner in Gatlinburg, we came home rather late and pulled back the covers in the master bdrm to discover long black hair everywhere! There were no spare sheets so guess who did laundry? The next morning at breakfast I opened the silverware drawer to find loads of small bugs mixed among the utensils. Oh, but they were dead. So guess who emptied the drawer, loaded the dishwasher and cleaned the drawer? I also cut my foot on something unidentifiable on the kitchen rug which obviously hadn't been cleaned in some time. I brought forth these issues to a young woman at the front desk in the rental office and she giggled and said she was sorry. After coming home I sent the manager of Cobbly Nob a letter and did not receive a reply. To add insult to injury, we paid a $75 cleaning fee when we rented the house. The whole house needed a good clean as you can imagine. The remote control didn't work, there were dirty, broken pans in the cupboards...the list could go on.
Also, if you look at the pictures on the website, it shows a beautiful view of the mountains; however, the only thing you can see is brush.
We were thoroughly disgusted and will take our business elsewhere for future trips to the area.

We rented this cabin with another couple for nine days and it's been a wonderful time. The cabin pictures from the website match what you find the moment you step inside the door. There is a small U shaped driveway that works well to park two cars. The view from both decks is simply amazing! There are cabins around you but NOT right next door so there is a nice degree of privacy to sit outside and relax on the upper and lower decks. The 'Simple Bear Necessities' cabin has two king bedrooms, one upstairs with private deck and a lower bedroom with lower deck access. The upper bedroom is slightly larger than the lower, with the loft style ceilings and such but both are equally comfortable with egg-crate foam mattress toppers on both beds. There is also a half bath off the kitchen which is nice to have when you don't feel like running into the bedroom baths.

The kitchen/dining/living room is one large common space with a flat screen TV, a DVD player, and cable. There is a gas fireplace for the cooler months and a beautifully decorated mantle over it. The kitchen itself is stocked with plenty of plates, bowls, cups and glasses, kitchen tools, and a dishwaher, disposal, microwave, and electric range. The fridge is modern and quite large with an icemaker.

In the upper loft area there is a jacuzzi tub and a waterfall feature to set the mood. On the deck outside there is a four person hot tub and a few rocking chairs to relax and unwind after a long day if sightseeing. A charcoal grill with smoker box is included but be warned it's a LARGE GRILL so be sure to buy lots of charcoal!

The decor inside the cabin is cozy with a black bear motiff throughout. It feels warm and welcoming and there are plenty of lights to set whatever mood you are going for easily. Down in the basement is the laundry/game room. The photo shows an air hockey table, but during our stay it had been replaced with a foosball table which was just as fun! There is also a pool table, but sadly only one cue stick to use. A sofa would have been nice to have to use when waiting for turns on the games, but we managed with little trouble. The basement is what I would call 'unfinished'. There are cutouts for windows and a door with framing and insulation visible, but perhaps the owners are renovating and it will be finished in the near future. There are no windows down there, just overhead lights so it wasn't the most inviting game room. The washer and dryer are nice to have and both worked well for our needs.

Wireless router provides internet access for all your devices, and you WILL need those as cell service at the cabin is not really possible. There is a wired phone in the kitchen and it has free long distance for your calling needs.

The cabin is located a short distance from the pool which is brisk due to being unheated.

Overall, it's a good cabin for the money and you will enjoy what it provides.
