“Amazing Point of View at Cobbly Nob in Gatlinburg”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Everything about this cabin was great except the couch. It had particle board under the cushions instead of springs. What a back breaking. butt numbing experience. Until this couch is replaced avoid this cabin. This is not only my opinion but several previous guests made comments about it in the Guest Book on the coffee table. See the attached picture.
On a positive note, the view is amazing. The large two person shower in the master bedroom is cool also. The master bed was fine, except the mattress cover was worn old and falling apart. The fireplace is for ambience only, as it is too small for the room to provide much heat. The firewood grate is melted down flat so it doesn't allow air flow.
The hottub is average, not really a high quality tub with spa jets.

I have stayed once a month for past several months and have never had any problem. Maybe too good a view or a beautiful sunset. Last week I stayed and was worried about the snow fall. The Cobbly maintenance were right up and salted and cleared the roads. Even winter they are the best. Going again next week and can't wait.

Beautiful cabin... Just not for winter. We got there and the heat was set at 50. The thermostat read 66 by the time we went to bed. Only had 1 blanket in whole cabin and was on the bed. We had to sleep in our flannels, socks and heavy robes. It took until next afternoon to get to 70.

We have stayed with Cobbly Nob Rentals on 5 separate occasions. We wanted to be close to the National Park and the city, but not too close. We have rented in one week stays, 1 to 3 bedrooms, as our family grew. When booking check availability on units and we always ask for a rental map so we can see where the property is located. look at the cabin pictures and the amenities, just a small caution, when looking at several its easy to get confused, so before your final booking review the cabin one last time. We spend most of the day sightseeing after preparing breakfast and return for a late supper. Its gets dark out at 5pm during the winter months, so also think of driving up to your mountain retreat in darkness. In the warmer months you may be interested in the pools, you can always use the nice pool, gym and bowling ally by the High school.

We stayed at Angel's Landing in Gatlinburg over Thanksgiving. My son turned 16 over our stay and we wanted to celebrate with a family getaway. The day we arrived it was snowing and our first morning there we awakened to a breathtaking view of snow laden trees all around us. The staff of Cobbly Nob were very friendly and gave us great directions to Angel's Landing. The cabin is gorgeous, well furnished and extremely clean! I had read so many reviews of cabins where the linens were not so great that we brought our own linens... we didn't need them! The owners of this cabin had provided music, movies and games for entertainment. The Wifi worked perfectly. It took us until our last night to get up the nerve to use the hot tub because it was really cold while we were there - particularly at night when we wanted to use the hot tub... but once we did, it was awesome.
We had visions of using the fireplace and cuddling up to watch Christmas movies. Unfortunately, the fireplace has only a screen - and there was such a draft coming down the chimney (even with the flue closed) that ashes blew out of the fireplace... and we were a little paranoid about the mess and the potential for a fire. So we only used the fireplace once. The cabin has a gorgeous Jacuzzi tub inside and it was wonderful to get in and relax after a day of walking around Gatlinburg. We did have an issue with an element going out on the hot water heater - but a quick call to the rental office and it was fixed by the time we got back to the cabin that evening.
If you are planning to stay at Angel's Landing, I recommend that you have 4 Wheel Drive. It is a steep climb up and although the driveway is paved, with any snow, ice, wet leaves on the ground - it can be a trick getting up. There are very steep drop offs on both sides of the driveway so the climb is not for the faint of heart. But, once you get there it is so completely worth it. You truly have the feeling that you are secluded and in a world of your own!
We had a great getaway and I would recommend this cabin and rental company to anyone looking to get away for a little while.

My husband and I along with our two teenagers stayed with Cobbly Nob Rentals in the Sundown cabin for the week of Thanksgiving. Out of the countless different rental companies in the area, I think Cobbly Nob has the most affordable rates. The rate is straightforward without hidden fees and they offer a military discount. Doug (?) was really friendly and talked to us for a while at the front desk. He gave us a lot of recommendations in the area which turned out to be really helpful during our trip. There was a small problem with the key when we first got to the cabin, but Doug drove out with us and a maintenance man and stayed there until we were in, which was only a few minutes.

I couldn't find a review for Sundown cabin, so hopefully this will help someone else. We needed a three bedroom and I wanted to be on the ground and not up on top of a steep mountain because sleet, ice and snow were forecasted for Thanksgiving. Sundown was a little further away from the other Cobbly Nob cabins, about 5 miles more and closer to Cosby, but it wasn't too bad of a drive and it wasn't up a steep driveway. The yard was huge and there was a nice stream running through the yard. The cabin is all one level and is stocked with the basics to get you started, but if you want extra toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, thick pillows, board games, etc., then bring your own. There was no internet at the cabin and we could barely get a signal on our phones, but it was nice and secluded. The cable channels were nice with a tv in every bedroom. They also have a wood stove which was a life saver when it got down to 30 degrees at night. The cabin thermostat was locked on 66 degrees so we couldn't make it warmer without using the fireplace. There is a mudroom with a washer and dryer, so we were able to wash towels and our clothes. I believe it's also pet friendly, but we didn't bring our dog and I couldn't really tell that pets were ever in there. Over all, Sundown is a nice little affordable 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin that has a great yard for playing in the snow.
