Very private and very secluded - the two most important features you have requested. Just wait until you're in the hot tub covered by your own private gazebo. This is the perfect ending to the day whether you have been hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains or zip lining across the tree tops! Spend time on the covered deck relaxing on a rocker or in the gazebo hot tub; spend time inside surrounded by lush wooded views of the valley and bluff mountain.

Manager Response:Thank you for your feedback. From your comments, it appears that you enjoyed your trip and liked the cabin. We hope you will consider a future stay with us.
"The Perfect Getaway"My mom has always wanted to stay in a log cabin and this meet everyone of her expectations. We visited in December when the weather was cool and crisp. The cabin was perfect. My mom raved over the b…eautiful wood, the way the stones from the fireplace extend to the top of the ceiling, and the kitchen with the granite counter tops. Most importantly being there allowed her relax in her dream vacation home. If our schedules would have allowed, we could have easily extended the stay for another week. My mom can't wait for a chance to come back. There was not one thing that we would complain about or suggest an improvement. Check in and out was simple and customer care was only a phone call away to answer any questions, including who delivers pizza.+ Read More
"greatest place to stay"The cabin was so great,it was in a great location and has everthing we could hope for. We were totally impressed with the resort company as well, they were helpful and friendly. I highly recommend this vacation spot.
"Peaceful Retreat"Cabin was beautiful and accommodated with luxury furnishings. It was located close enough to all attractions and restaurants but far enough away on the mountain that you felt secluded. We enjoyed ou…r stay so much we have already begun making plans on our return to Elk Springs Resort and reviewing which cabin we would like to stay in the next time. I highly recommend choosing Elks Springs Resort.+ Read More

"Beautiful Property"The cabin was clean, organized, and everything you could ask for in a vacation destination. The process of renting was smooth, the location was secluded and the neighbors were easily accessible. Only …thing is the winter weather was a little hindering but Elk Springs was expeditious with shoveling and salting the driveways. I plan to come back next year!+ Read More

The personnel were pleasant, knowlegeable, and courteous during the sign-up as well as during the week.Cabin (cottage) was up to standards, well furnished and everything in working order.

"Tranquil and Restful"We rented this cabin for an anniversary getaway for our 25th and my parent's 56 anniversary. This was a great cabin. Very peaceful and tranquil. The cabin was nicely decorated had all the amenities …of home. We loved sitting on the porch in the rockers and enjoying the sounds of nature such as dueling woodpeckers in the woods in the morning and the crickets at night. The cabin was easy to find and was minutes away from Gatlinburg and most times a 20-30 minute drive to Pigeon Forge. We did have on small issue with a leak from the upstairs bathroom to the downstairs bathroom upon arrival. Called the maintenance number and he was there in less than 30 mins to fix the issue. Very polite and professional and fixed it within an hour. No more issues during our stay. Would stay here again!!! Loved the Grin and Bear It cabin.+ Read More
