“Another day in paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The view was amazing. We enjoyed the outdoor fireplace. The pools were very clean. The cabin itself had a great layout and nice TVs. It could have been cleaner. There were cob webs and needed to be dusted. The rugs also seemed dirty. There was mold near the faucet in the tub. We didn't use the hot tub very much as the unit was only one level, when we did raccoons came up on the deck at night to visit which made me nervous. We didn't sleep well here at night as you could hear scratching outside from wild animals. We recommend bringing your own cleaning supplies. Despite the cons it was a great vacation.

This was our second stay in the Smokies and it was wonderful. The cabin was exactly as it was pictured on the web and it was immaculate! The view from the deck was breathtaking. The rental agency was very efficient and helpful with local information. We would definitely go back. Thank you Tennessee for a great week!

A friend of mine recommended cobbly nob and we were not disappointed. We stayed in "Another day in Paradise". We got there after check in time and we had called in advance to let them know. When we arrived to the office evreything was there for us including easy directions. We couldnt see much of the outside when we got there but the inside of the cabin was clean and great. It had everything we needed for our three nights there. We just brought some food and drinks and had evrything we needed to make food, fire and even wine glasses. The complaints of no maid service and bugs. My thoughts are that you are in the woods and mountains there are going to be bugs. The maid service and hotel like accomodations come with a hotel or a resort. If you enjoy a home away from home and an escape this is it. It was quite no noise of children running down halls or people above you. The washer and dryer there in the cabin for you was great. We washed all our clothes to take home and just put away. The most amazing part was waking up the first morning to the smokie moutain view that could be seen from evry window and sliding glass door. The view at sunrise was absolutely breathtaking. We will be back and recommend it to anyone.

At first glance the cabin appeared nice but it did not live up to our expections.Pillows on bed were two small flat pads on a king size bed. And when we tried to fix this, we found dirty, sweat stained excuses for pillows. Discusting!!!! Other supplies not adequate -towels ,wash cloths,etc .Furniture needs to be replaced, sat on sofa, almost sank to floor also fabric has holes the size of quarters on it. kitchen desperately needs to be up dated! Range door spring not working and dish washer doesn't work properly. When we loaded dishwasher to wash dishes before leaving, we found soap dispenser still full from previous load! When we arrived we had to unload dishwasher (remind me why We were charged cleaning fee). Seeing that soap was still in Dishwasher Dispenser, HOW CLEAN WERE THOSE DISHES WE USED? We have stayed many times in cabins in this area never have we encountered conditions like this, plus we have never had to use our car to haul trash to a Dumpster! When we paid our bill we spoke to Cobbly Nob rental agent about these problems- totally unconcerned! We do not trust this rental agency and will never stay in cuddle up again or any other units they rent.

Hooo's Lookin' Back is a beautiful 1 bedroom cabin in the Smokies, in Gatlinburg TN. The cabin is managed by Cobbly Nob Rentals of Gatlinburg. Expecting an enjoyable and special vacation stay, I rented the cabin for 3 nights, 3-5 July 2013. Having rented a number of cabins in the same area over the past 18 years, I had/have a good understanding of what to expect. However, upon first entering the cabin, it was apparent that this cabin fell way short of my expectations. There were 1 1/4 rolls of the thinnest toilet paper made, for sure unacceptable and not enough to last 2 people for 3 days. Checking other items, it was very apparent there were not enough towels for 2 people for 3 days. There were 2 large towels for use when enjoying the hot tub, 2 bath towels adjacent to the jacuzzi for use when enjoying the jacuzzi, and in the bathroom there were 2 bath towels and 2 hand towels for use by 2 people for 3 days - totally unacceptable. There were plenty of bath cloths and a basket of rags for use by guest. All of the bed linens and towels provided were of extremely cheap quality, not at all what you'd hope to find at a resort cabin. I did not rent the cabin for me to wash towels, perform maid duties, or purchase toilet paper for use during my stay. Additionally, it was apparent the $50.00 cleaning fee was not being well spent as the filth around the base of the toilet, the layered dust on the cabin beams and fan blades, and the extremely dirty windows were distinctive shortcomings of management. Further, the interior was not well supplied and there was no toilet brush or plunger for use in the bathroom. Included in the negatives were a very hard and very uncomfortable bed, and really no appreciation for me renting the cabin. They expect their guests to bring the majority of all supplies normally stocked in a resort cabin and to do most of the cleaning, to include hauling your trash to the Cobbly Nob Rentals office dumpsters to make it easier on their cleaning staff. So, why am I paying a $50 cleaning fee?! When checking out, it is normal and a courtesy to ask how one's stay was. This appreciation never occurred although it is advertised, "Our guests are very important to us and we take pride in our service & hospitality." in About Us on the web page of Cobbly Nob Rentals. The cabin rental was not conducive to an enjoyable and special vacation stay. I do not recommend renting from Cobbly Nob Rentals and will not do so in the future.

Room Tip: Read and heed reviews before renting...

I had read a few very bad reviews on the "Stairway to Heaven" property. I called the Cobbly Nob office to voice my concerns and to see if they had any bad feedback on the "Stairway to Heaven" cabin. I was fearing for the worst but hoping for the best when I arrived at my cabin. It exceeded all of my expectations. I discovered that there are several "Stairway to Heaven" rental properties in the Gatlinburg area. The Cobbly Nob "Stairway to Heaven," where we stayed, was clean, updated and a great place with a magnificent view! During our stay they delivered a brand new grille and changed the air conditioner filters. In closing, make sure the "Stairway to Heaven" review you are reading is the actual property you are renting.

Just left from staying at The Birds Nest. We won't use Cobbly Nob again. The house was musty, dead bugs, went to pull down the shade and the whole thing fell down. They advertised televisions in all bedrooms, but neglected to say they don't work. Needs serious updating!! Better experience at Deer Ridge.
