I booked a unit thru VRBO after finding one much cheaper than Priceline, so I can’t speak of that process. We enjoyed our Memorial Day stay. (Our condo was nicely appointed but my husband peaked into our neighbor’s one day and said it was completely different).
I grew up in WV so I thought I was prepared for the road up but it even got me- my dad joked you needed oxygen and a Sherpa guide to get to the top.
The outside of the building could use a coat of paint but we very much enjoyed the outside pool and loved the indoor pool and hot tubs.
Lastly, my sister had to sprint past a black bear eating out of the dumpster on her way in the first day, so I suppose she got the true Smoky Mountains experience!
