We Loved our Secluded Cabin

Cabin: Secluded Hideaway

My family stayed at Secluded Hideaway for 2 nights on the week-end of July 20-22, 2012. This was our first stay with Elk Springs Resort. I initially found out about Elk Springs through a Groupon advertisement, and after checking out their website, I was intrigued by the beauty of their cabins.

It has become a family tradition for us to celebrate my husband's birthday with our two children and their spouses. We usually go to Kentucky Lake in Grand Rivers, KY, but decided to try something different this year.

When I booked the reservations, it was important to me to get three separate bedrooms with three king-sized beds. I also wanted a cabin that was centrally located between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Secluded Hideaway offered both of these amenities.

The game room downstairs was an added bonus since my husband, son, and son-in-law love to play ping-pong! Our cabin was very spacious and clean. One of our favorite things about Secluded Hideaway was the wraparound porch. We spend a lot of our time out on the porch visiting. The name Secluded Hideaway is a perfect name because you are indeed secluded. It was a very quiet and peaceful location, but very convenient to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

We rode the sky lift in Gatlinburg and ate at the Smokey Mountain Brewery for lunch on Saturday, and then drove to the Tanger Outlet Malls in Pigeon Forge and shopped for a while before heading to the Old Mill Restaurant for Sat. night dinner. We had not eaten at either one of these restaurants, and found them to be great choices! Even though we had a great time doing this outing, we found ourselves looking forward to getting back to our Secluded Hideaway for rest and relaxation! We celebrated my husband's birthday after returning to our cabin by having a ping-pong tournament in the game room of the downstairs of our cabin. There was also a card table in the game room which we enjoyed very much as we played cards well into the night.

The only advice that I have for future visitors is to make sure you figure out the short cuts that you can take to and from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Traffic was horrible on the strip between the two towns, but a local guy told us about a short cut we could take. All in all, we had a good experience with Elk Springs Resort and would definitely consider returning for a future visit.
