Full Description

You'll enjoy and appreciate the upgraded decor and leather furnishings in this unique cabin. Enter on the main level and notice the floor to ceiling center fireplace surrounded by a wall of glass extending 28 feet to the vaulted ceilings above. You have arrived in the great room! Plenty of seating on a leather sectional sofa an rustic rocker for your group. The adjoining dining room features a cedar log dining table and breakfast bar for meal prepared in your upgraded and fully equipped kitchen with cherry cabinets and stainless steel appliances. A mixer, blender, toaster, microwave, ice maker and plenty of pots and pans are all standard.

A gas grill is located just outside the door on the deck if you plan on grilling out during your vacation. For your convenience there is a half bath with adjoining utility room with side by side full size washer and dryer.

The main master suite with king bed, walk in closet, jacuzzi tub and stand up shower is on the main level. You'll especially appreciate the hand made aspen log bed with upgraded mattress and bedding.

The lower level game room includes a pool table, air hockey, card table, a large sitting area with sleeper sofa and love seat.

  • Grace S. Grace S.
    Wichita, KS


    We were a three generation family of 10 staying in the cabin. The young folks loved the downstairs with the movie theatre, hot tub, pool table and air hockey. j. It was a great place for them to gather. The main floor living room was big and comfortable with plenty of room for all. The cabin was very clean and everything was working well. The location was perfect for golf, zip lining, mountain biking, hiking Dollywood etc. There were plenty of nearby restaurants to eat the main meal at. We were real close to the arts and crafts loop so could do a little shopping on the way back to the cabin everyday. The kitchen was well stocked but never did find a cookie sheet! Could have used a sturdier garbage can in the kitchen that the lid didn't fall off all the time. That was the only minor problem. k. We loved sitting on the decks in the comfortable chairs at night and enjoying the beautiful scenery. It was a perfect week!

    "Knotty and Nice (but really just NICE)"

    We had an absolute blast at this cabin! We didn't even go anywhere the entire weekend. From spending time on the main level near all the food in the kitchen, sitting in the hot tub, watching a movie in the theater room and playing games, we were never bored. The cabin is very nice on the inside and everyone was impressed witht their rooms. If only we could have stayed longer and enjoyed more of the area, we would have.

    We definitely plan on coming back!

    "Perfect for our group of 11"

    The cabin was amazing. It was well furnished with an awesome layout. I could not think of anything that we could have needed that it didn't have. I took my Amazon fire stick and was able to hook it up in the theater room. We enjoyed the sauna and hot tub. It was easy to find and had enough parking for two vehicles, we had three and made it work. If you want to book this cabin, you better hurry. I might be about to book it again.

    We traveled 11 hours from Michigan to the beautiful mountains of TN. The cabin that we stayed in was amazing and perfect for our family. We loved it completely! The kids enjoyed the theater room and the game room. We loved the hot tub and sauna. There was plenty of room and the views were breath-taking. The only issue we had was the driveway was very muddy due to recent snow melting. However, maintenance was doing their best to plow all of the properties and honestly, we made it up and it was well-worth it!!!

    "What an Awesome Vacation~"

    We have two sons and their families that live a few hours from us, and a daughter and her family live in our town. We wanted to meet somewhere,and spend a week together, so that the cousins could hang out and do things together. We could not have picked a better place to do that. We stayed in Knotty & Nice. It was beautiful~ We enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The cabin was perfect. So much room for everyone. The kids loved the theater room. Each family had a bedroom with plenty of room. We loved that we were able to grill out and eat at the cabin. It was one of the most relaxing vacations that we have ever taken. Gatlynburg is beautiful. Everything was centrally located. A grocery store within 5 minutes was also great. Check in was easy, as well as the check out. We loved sitting out on the deck in the rocking chairs with the sun shining on us. The hot tub was a hit at night. There was so much to do, but also plenty of time to relax and enjoy our vacation. We will for sure be back, and hopefully Knotty and Nice will be available because it was a perfect " home away from home". Everyone on the way home was talking about what we would do the next we will be back. Thank you for sharing a wonderful vacation place~

    "Perfect Family Vacation"

    We rented the Knotty & Nice cabin for our family Thanksgiving vacation. The cabin was beautiful with plenty of room for everyone. We particularly enjoyed the sauna, theater and game room. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, pots and pans for me to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner. The view was nice and close to many attractions in Gatlinburg. We particulary loved that there was a grocery store 10 minutes from the cabin as well. The staff was very friendly and even made a courtesy call to make sure our stay was going well.

    The only complaint we have was that the cabin had out dated TV's throughout. Our teenage boys wanted to play xbox on the gameroom TV but we couldn't find the remote so we were'nt able to get them connected.

    All in all the cabin is beautiful and was the best family vacation we've had. The snow was a plus! We do plan on returning next year!

    Family loved the cabin! We were made up of 4 adults, 2 teenagers, and 1 child. Once we walked into the cabin, everyone was in awe on how big it was. The view was great! We had a view of trees and mountains. It was awesome watching the clouds roll in and out and how fast the weather can change in the Smokies. Cabin was close to area attractions, but far enough away to get away from the craziness. We had a cat visit us twice which my husband joked about cats can find me any where I go (I feed the stray cats that are around my neighborhood). The kitty was just making me feel at home. We make it back to Gatlinburg, we will most definitely stay here again.

    "You Can't Go Wrong!"

    Knotty & Nice is a fantastic home! There were 11 of us, and we all had our own personal space. Although it is close to other houses, the decks face the woods and it 'feels' secluded, plus there is a good view of the mountains. We loved the hot tub and the kids enjoyed the movie theater. It was in a perfect location for our active family... on the outskirts of Gatlinburg on the same side of town as Climbworks ZipLine, our Nantahala white water rafting on the Pigeon River, and our Walk in the Woods guide trip at the Cosby entrance to the national park. Turn left and you are just minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown Gatlinburg. We absolutely loved our vacation, and Knotty & Nice is the perfect home away from home when visiting the Smoky Mountains! You can't go wrong with this rental property!

    "Stay Here!"

    They have a warning sign at the entrance, that you may not want to leave. 100% correct, we truly regretted leaving after a 6-night stay. The Knotty & Nice cabin is absolutely amazing. Great setup for families with kids. We were very happy with the property- tons of amenities, plenty of space, great furniture & decorations. Also very clean. It really feels like a home away from home. Nice view through the huge windowed wall / off the main porch. Likely other cabins in the property a little higher up will have an even more amazing view.

    There are lots of cabins in the property, but doesn't feel like it when in the cabin. The location is relatively good, just east of the Gatlinburg 'strip'. If you plan to drive regularly to Smoky Mtns Park, you have to deal with getting through the slow Gatlinburg area, or go via the bypass. For groceries & supplies, I suggest Food City. It's very close, just be sure to get their savings card to save $$$. FYI, they sell TN fishing licenses there. Otherwise, there's a Kroger and WalMart in Pigeon Forge (20-30min away).

    My only recommendation for Elk Springs is to upgrade TV's to flat-screen HD, and upgrade the theater room to HD projector & Bluray. Ideally, add HDMI input to allow guests to connect game system, PC (streaming video like Netflix), etc.

    We'll definitely be back! Highly Recommended!!!
