Great Value Staying in a Cabin

Cabin: Beary Cozy

My family and I visited Elk Springs Resort the week of August 8th, 2011. We are a family of four and also brought my mother in law. We chose to stay in 'Beary Cozy' due to the value rates for the week and the beautiful pictures.

We had stayed at the Resort two years prior with 2 other families at 'Sweet Dreams' and enjoyed our stay then as well. We called the resort to see if there were any discounts available for returning customers, the staff was so friendly and willing to help, they offered us a GREAT discount and we booked right away.

I immediately started looking for things to do, and their website was such a big help! The community center with the indoor pool and kid pool was definitely on our 'to do list', but it ended up being closed that week for maintenance. We planned to visit the aquarium, Titanic Museum, and Ober Gatlinburg. Since Gatlinburg is full of attractions and plenty of shopping, we didn't get to do everything, but we of course didn't mind.

Since our cabin had a beautiful kitchen we decided to try and save money on eating out and cook 3 out of the 5 nights. The grocery store that is located less than 10 minutes away was wonderful. They had everything we needed and if there was something they didn't have, the Family dollar located right down the road did. There was also a Dollar General right there as well, but we didn't have to go there as we found everything at the other two stores. Now there was a couple of mornings where we left out early and didn't have time to cook breakfast and the McDonalds less than 5 minutes away was perfect for those occasions. I guess you can see why we are repeat customers of Elk Springs; the cabins are just as pictured and absolutely gorgeous. The staff is friendly and willing to help with any questions you may have, plus offering great discounts.

I don't really have any major complaints regarding the resort, the only thing I would mention and its really no big deal is the close proximity of the cabins. Some are close together, but there are ones that are secluded. Seclusion was not a big deal to us, so we didn't focus on that aspect to much. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again.
