This is my third stay in Cobbly Nob cabins and it was my first disappointment. It simply does not meet the standards of the other two cabins (which were great cabins. We were not allowed to check in until percisely 3:00 because they were shampooing the carpets. Upon arrival, the leaves were mounded up on the porch and driveway...no way to keep from tracking them in. (We called and someone did come to blow them away 3 hours later.) As we entered, the cabin needed airing out from the cleaning chemicals smell and a general " stale, closed up" odor. There were very visable cob webs hanging throughout. I wanted to take every artifical flower arrangement out and spray the dust off. Had to dust my headboard before we would crawl into bed. Just wasn't a clean place. On the second morning, the chemical smell was overcome by a "dirty-diaper-dead-animal-what-on-earth-is-that" odor in the lower hallway and two bedrooms. The multiple air freshners sitting around the rooms should have tipped us off that there was a problem. The bedroom TV's didn't work. Not enough silverware for a meal of 6. Barely enough towels. One bedroom did not heat well. This cabin has been neglected. Cobbly Nob has much better places to stay in the area.

We booked the month before so we didn't have tons of choices of rentals in the area. This one met our criteria and price so we decided to book it. I find it odd that the reviews are all over the place for this rental company. Maybe its the owners of the individual houses that are to blame? Angels Landing was about 12 miles outside of Gatlinburg but it was fine for us who are used to being away from the main drag. The house is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath (one of each on each level) and is located on the side of one of the hills. The "driveway" is a bit adventurous and you'd definitely need 4wd to get up here in ice/snow. The house was very clean and the hot tub was ready to go. The owners had decorated with several paintings, had books there for us to read, cds to listen to, and plenty of wood and matches for the fireplace. Just bring some newspaper to get the fire started. The master bath has a huge jacuzzi tub to relax in if you want to be indoors. The hot tub is so private that I imagine you can go sans swimsuit if you want. All around is just beautiful trees and hillside.
The only thing the house needs is a good carpet cleaning. It looks like someone tracked mud in through the main floor which is a shame. All in all we'd definitely recommend this rental.

Room Tip: The place we stayed at is also listed for sale, so we knew it would be in good repair. Just google t...

Our stay was in "The White House" . Very nice. Clean. A great place for a large group. Bedrooms are relaxing and though there may be many people in the house the bedroom is still your sanctuary. We have stayed in this home 2xs. Location rating is bad if you are wanting to be in the hustle and bustle of the Gatlinburg area, but if you want a retreat area away from it, this place is it.

Just returned from a stay at the king of the mountain. I can not say enough about how nice it was. Views are amazing, rustic decor is amazing, all handmade and beautiful. Furniture maybe rustic, but that is all that is rustic. Bathrooms were large and looked BRAND NEW. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the view and family time. Eagle's nest (master bedroom) is large and has French doors to a deck. The deck off the master is deck number 2. The main deck wraps around and has a very large grill for outdoor cooking. House was very clean and had all the modern conveniences you could ask for. I look forward to planning another trip and will definitely stay at the king of the mountain.

Room Tip: Master has LARGE shower, brand new, only room on the top floor. Very private. Could not hear he othe...

We stayed in the Eagles Nest and enjoyed our stay a lot. We were out of the cabin during the days and, once we found the back roads, it was near everything. The staff at Cobbly Nob was always helpful and friendly - even when they were very busy. I left a bag when we departed and called them for help. They located the bag and packaged it for UPS pickup with no complaints. Good stay.

My beautiful wife and I are staying at copper ridge right now. We are celebrating our marriage and feel we have found a truely special cabin that we look forward to coming back to in the future. I googled "sleep number bed gatlinburg, tn" only to find this "picture perfect" cabin. There are a few minor improvements that need repair but the natural beauty inside and outside makes up for those flaws. The personal map provided by colby nob cabin rentals used to help my wife and I find our cabin was very helpful. It was dark and rainy but thanks to the map, the hunt to find the cabin was relatively easy. The cabin is stunning. The lighting throughout is perfect, the temperature is cozy, the 2 person hot tub in the bedroom is huge. Did I mention lovely? The wood fireplace in the den is fun and provides an extra touch of warmth and peace. It is true that the waterfall sitting area does not work. The sleep number bed choosees to work when it wants to as well. You just have to push the button and wait for it to do its thing. You cant read the "number" on the controller. Maybe a Sleep Number tech could come out and repair. Overall, we love the cabin and would defiantly tell any love birds looking for a great mountain hideaway to stay here. It about a 20 minute ride from Hard Rock Cafe Gatlingburg up the moutain to the cabin.

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!
