Friends and Family Recommended Elk Springs Resort in Gatlinburg

Cabin: Sight Seer

My family and I are from Mobile Alabama. We vacationed at the Elk Springs Resort in April 2012. We've always wanted to take a vacation like this, but I really was not sure about where to find great cabins. After I began asking co-workers, friends, and family for recommendations, the name Elk Springs Resort came up repeatedly. When I looked up the website, I was impressed with the helpfulness of being able to take virtual online tours of the cabins inside and out. The website was very helpful in allowing you to book all the accommodations and amenities you need in a cabin. That helpful feature and the fact that the resort came so highly recommended from family and friends made the choice to stay at Elk Springs Resort very easy.

I love the fact that the resort e-mailed our family very specific directions to our cabin because GPS systems sometime fail when you are in the mountains (ours did). I love the fact that the resort called my cell phone to give us our cabin access code at 11:00 in the morning. We were still a couple hours away traveling on the highway, but, had we been in Gatlinburg already, the early access would have been greatly appreciated.

During our vacation we stayed in the beautiful SIGHT SEER Gatlinburg cabin. The name of the cabin says it all. It was the most incredible mountain view we could have ever dreamed. The cabin was absolutely gorgeous. The kitchen was full stocked with every convenience just like at home. All the appliances were modern and attractive. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautifully decorated. And the peace and quiet was blissful.

Our cabin offered everyone in our family something special. My husband enjoyed the beautiful view and comfortable seating area on the porch and deck to enjoy morning coffee while watching the sunrise and a cold beverage to watch the sun set every evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi on the deck with the privacy petition. It was so relaxing to unwind while drinking a glass of champagne. My teen aged daughter loved the view from her bedroom and was very pleased with the fact that we had our own router for excellent internet service. The satellite dish let us all enjoy our favorite TV shows. We all enjoyed the game room and pool table. The view from the big bay windows in the game room was awesome. We all loved the location of the cabin. We were less than five minutes away from the grocery store, video rentals, discount store, and restaurants. Our cabin was located in the Arts and Crafts community just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, so we spent a lot of time browsing and window shopping the local craft stores shopping for homemade goods. We visited the game arcades and museums in Pigeon Forge. We visited the shops and restaurants in downtown Gatlinburg, and we did a little sight-seeing in between. We saw a small bear on our first day driving to our cabin. That was very exciting. We can't wait to visit again. Next time my daughter wants to try zip-lining and indoor sky diving. And next time, we will all definitely stay a lot longer !!!!!!!
