No One Wanted To Leave The Cabin!

Cabin: Basswood Lodge

My husband, son and I are from Indianapolis, Indiana and we stayed at Elk Springs Resort last August for five nights. We stayed in the Mountain Fever cabin and all I can say is Oh My Gosh!! It was such a beautiful cabin!! I had searched for days (weeks maybe?) for the perfect cabin for our vacation. This was our first family vacation with my son and I wanted it to be perfect. And thanks to Mountain Fever and Elk Springs, it really was. I had a long list of activities for us to do while we were in Gatlinburg but the cabin was so nice that no one wanted to leave! My son is 8 years old and I was worried about him not sleeping well in a strange room but he was so comfortable in his own room with bunk beds that sleeping and staying in bed was not a problem. Of all the things to see and do in Gatlinburg, his favorite part of the vacation was staying in the cabin. He loved the bunk beds, the hot tub, the theater room, the big bath tubs. My husband's favorite part of the cabin was definitely the theater room. It was not something we were looking for in a cabin, but once we were there and experienced it we fell in love. The reclining chairs were so comfortable and the sound and picture quality were just like being at the movies. He also enjoyed cooking out on the gas grill and relaxing on one of the three decks. I have so many wonderful things to say about this cabin as well. First off, it was CLEAN! Even outside on the decks was spotless! The kitchen had everything we needed and everything worked well. It was an easy kitchen to cook in. The bathrooms were beautiful as well.

While we were there we did have an issue with the lights not working in the kitchen and living room area. I called the office and since it was after hours I had to leave a message. Within five minutes I received a return phone call and less then ten minutes after that we had someone at the cabin and he immediately fixed the problem. The staff at Elk Springs was so nice and we received excellent customer service.

I was able to drag my son and husband out of the cabin a few times and a couple of our favorite things were Ripley's Aquarium which was awesome, the Old Mill Restaurant which was delicious, and hiking around the park. It was a great vacation and we will have wonderful memories of it for years to come. Thank you Elk Springs for an awesome vacation!
