Unforgettable Vacation

Cabin: Unforgettable

My husband and I spent six nights in Unforgettable for our honeymoon in June of 2012. There are simply not enough superlatives to communicate how perfect this entire experience was. The cabin in Gatlinburg is aptly named.

I cannot imagine any human being spending time there and then later being able to forget it!

This summer was our first chance to stay at Elk Springs, but it certainly will not be our last! We both knew we wanted to honeymoon in the Smokies, so I did some pretty extensive online research. On TripAdvisor, there was absolutely no doubt that Elk Springs Resort had the highest ratings of any rental cabins in the area, so I started looking at the Elk Springs site to see if a cabin had the right 'fit' for us. Even the pictures of Unforgettable took our breath away.

I was a little worried that the cabin might not live up to our expectations because they started out really high. Needless fears!!! The cabin was better than advertised! The amenities are unbelievable. We had a blast with the 3D television. We were amazed that the resort actually had a selection of DVDs for our convenience.

The cabin has two levels; guests come in on the top level. The living room, pool table, kitchen, and table are on this level. The bedroom takes up the bottom level. A small laundry room with a stack washer/dryer is on this level as well. There are bathrooms on each level. Another awesome thing about the cabin is the fact that there are decks on each level! We often poured cereal in the mornings and went to eat it in the chairs out on the upper deck. The lower deck has a sauna (that it was too hot to use) and a spa (which we thoroughly enjoyed). My absolute favorite thing about this cabin was the shower in the master suite. It is huge with shower heads as well as side jets. We had seen pictures of it on the website, but we had no idea from the pictures just how big it was going to be!

My husband really loved the pool table. He talked me into playing once, but I was so bad at it, he didn't ask again. During our trip we did several fun things. We shopped and went to some of the attractions, but we did nature things as well. Two outings that stand out in my memory are hiking to Abram's Falls and climbing to the top of Clingman's Dome. The climb up to the dome is not for the faint of heart, but if the sky is clear, the views are incomparable!

One of my favorite things about the Smokies is the fact that there is so much 'homemade' food stuff available! We bought fruit butters for family members (and ourselves). My mother even asked for some stone ground corn meal, and I wasn't sure I could pull that one off, but we did find it-actually in the gift shop at Clingman's Dome! Another experience that we highly recommend is a day trip to Asheville. Neither of us had ever toured Biltmore, so we made a trip over to Asheville one morning and toured the home. It is an easy day trip and one well worth the time if you have it! We know we will probably spend many anniversaries in Unforgettable in the future, and I cannot wait to get back there! The worst part of the trip was packing up to come home!
