Wedding in a Vacation Rental

Reviewer: Hickman Family from Louisville, KY - Wednesday, April 18, 2012


Cabin: Silvercreek

We recently visited Elk Springs Resort and stayed for a 7 days in the Silvercreek cabin for my mother and fathers wedding. This was the first vacation that my parents, my family of 5, and my sisters family of 5 went on together. We wanted to stay in a relaxing environment where the kids could run and play together and the adults could get some much needed R & R.

This was our first visit to Elk Springs Resort and we will be back! The cabin was top notch, clean, and comfortable. We could cook for our family. There were plenty of bathrooms for our crowd. Not to mention the relaxing that we did rocking on the rocking chairs on the deck. The children loved the hot tub and having three levels (one for each family) gave us time to spend apart when we needed that as well. We enjoyed being away from downtown Gatlinburg, but close enough to be able to drive each day if we wanted. We all were able to visit the aquarium and some members of our party caught a Smokies Baseball Game, while others visited the go cart tracks and outlets nearby. It was also super nice not having to have a key to keep up with for each family! My parents, after being divorced for many years, reunited in marriage at the cabin where a local minister came to the cabin to perform the service. We had an extra special meal this evening of prime rib, that my husband was able to prepare for the entire family. This saved us lots money and gave us time that we were able to enjoy my parents reunion.

The biggest area of improvement that we noticed where an upgrade to the TV's is needed and the trash (although we called several times for pickup) needs to be picked up more often. Overall, we loved our stay. We will be back. The biggest decision will be if we stay in Silvercreek (which we know we love) or try one of your other cabins which looked just as fantastic from the outside as Silvercreek did! Thank you so much for having our family at your resort.

The biggest advice that I can give future visitors is do not plan on arriving after dark. We made one wrong turn and wound up driving up a mountain that terrified us as it was in the middle of no where and there was no cell phone service. We now know not to make that mistake!

*** Management Comment: Please call us for trash pick ups as we do have maintenance staff on site. We do suggest following the directions we send with our reservation confirmations and pre-check ins. It is easy to get to our property, but wrong turns can be made. Strongly suggest you follow the directions we send you as they are suitable for day or for night travel.
