There is a reason that Secret Garden is our most popular 2 bedroom cabin. Located on a secluded and quiet side street in the main resort, Secret Garden is just the perfect cabin waiting for you! Secret Garden lives up to its name and promises a "getaway" you will not soon forget. Enter this spectacular cabin on the main level and you will be dazzled by the 28 foot two story windows and views of the wooded valley below. We bet you can't wait to experience the 18 foot rain tower shower, the jacuzzi tub, foosball, pool table or hot tub!

Full Description

You will enter on the main level where there is a living room with sleeper sofa where you can cozy up in front of the gas fireplace with flat screen TV. To the right is the large kitchen (much bigger than you will find in a traditional 2 bedroom cabin). A rustic dining table and breakfast bar provide plenty of room to dine in. A Gas grill is just out the front door.

The lower level calls for FUN! The pool table and foosball table prod your competitive juices - let the tournaments begin! You will notice the wet bar on this level also for your convenience. Ah, another fireplace just in case the weather requires a little warming up. Outside on the balcony are a set of rocking chairs and the 101 degree hot tub.

Enter the master suite which may be beyond your wildest expectation! A beautiful king bed, gas fire place, and heart shaped Jacuzzi tub are just the beginning - experience the 18 foot shower tower - the question becomes "what do we want to do first!" The second bedroom is also beautifully furnished with a king bed plus an adjoining second bathroom with a tub/shower combination.

We have several cabins with this same floor plan! Ask us about this same cabin footprint that offers queen bunk beds in the second bedroom if you require more sleeping spaces. After a few days and nights in Secret Garden, you will add your name to the list of guests who keep coming back to visit! Spectacular!

    "Too good to be true! "

    Sometimes pictures are better than the real thing. Not this time! Cabin was beautiful, more secluded than others in the resort which we were thrilled about. Only a quick drive into town. Will definitely be back.

    Manager Response:

    We certainly agree, Jessica! The pictures can not truly reflect how remarkable this cabin is. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your visit. Please come back and stay with us again as often as you can. Hurry back, your next adventure awaits!

    "Secret Garden delightful getaway"

    This was our first stay in Gatlinburg and this cabin was the greatest part of the experience -- clean, comfortable, delightful deck, pool table. Even though other cabins were nearby, it felt secluded. Close to arts & crafts circle, to downtown, and to grocery story; however, you do need a car to get around. The kitchen & sitting room are at entrance level; bedrooms/bathrooms/game room/outside deck are lower level. Great windows--a lot of light.

    "Extended Weekend Getaway "

    We had a wonderful time enjoying the cabin for the weekend. The cabin was beautiful. I highly recommend booking this cabin. It's located close to Gatlinburg Main Street but far enough away to enjoy the scenery.

    Manager Response:

    Thank you for the 5 star review, Wesley. Elk Springs Resort offers you security and peacefulness without being in the middle of all of the hustle and bustle of downtown. There is so much to see and do in the area, but it is nice to have a beautiful cabin to return to for some down time at the end of the day. We appreciate your business and your feedback.

    "Secret Garden Cabin Rental"

    We stayed at the Secret Garden cabin. So enjoyable. The property was very clean. Wish there were bigger televisions in the bedrooms, but we were not staying there to watch television. Had a minor issue with one fireplace and the management company responded quickly and sent a very professional man to resolve the problem.

    "Perfect Honeymoon Retreat"

    We began our stay in Gatlinburg at a hotel in town. After spending 3 days there, we decided that we needed to move to a more luxurious and peaceful location. Marty at Elk Springs was able to quickly recommend several properties that were available and we chose Secret Garden. This property was everything we wanted: peaceful, luxurious, beautiful, spacious and cozy. There is not a single thing we did not love about this 'cabin' and wished we could have stayed longer. Had we planned from the beginning of our trip to stay here, we would have been better prepared with kitchen supplies/food, but there is a very nice grocery store close by which we took advantage of. We especially loved the "shower tower" and the views of the woods through the many windows. This property is a real treat!

    "Just as it's represented!"

    The check in and out process was very easy. Our cabin was ready early, easy to find and in close proximity to all the activities we did while there. The cabin looked exactly like the pictures and was in great condition. We especially liked "A Secret Garden" because it seemed a little more private than most the other cabins. It is tucked away in it's own spot which allowed our girls to play out front a little. We bought them a bow and arrow and they were able to shoot it into the big "mountain" that was against the driveway. Everything was amazing and we are already planning on coming back for Christmas!

    "relaxing vacation."

    Nice place to stay. everything was very clean. close to everything and it was quiet. there are cabins all around so you are not totally secluded but it is still nice. most of them are situated so you are not sitting on the deck viewing another cabin, but you can see them.

    "Perfect Family Vacation!"

    We stayed in The Secret Garden. Very nice, just like the photos. Clean! Perfect area once we figured out where we were. Close to the grocery store & shopping fun! My only complaint is my own fault. We only stayed 2 nights & we should have stayed at least 4! The kids cried when we left....this would be a great place for friends to go & hang out together too without children:)

    "Weekend get away"

    Had a great time. Accommodations were great. Loved the fact that it was close enough to,Gatlinburg but far enough away to feel relaxing. Only improvements I would make is to have a rug at the doorway to wipe your shoes and have a few games or at least a pack of cards in case of inclement weather. Also, the unit we had only had 4 drinking glasses. Minor things that in no way affected our enjoyment of our stay. Would stay there again

    "Awesome Vacation at Secret Garden"

    We had a blast again staying with Elk Springs...We stayed at a cozy cabin called Secret Garden.Plenty of room for my two kids,wife and me.We had a few problems because of the snow it had frozen the pipes so we had no water.Called and within 45 minutes someone was there to thaw the pipes out.Very nice and professional guy.He knew what he was doing!
    This is our 4th time staying with Elk Springs and will continue for years to come!Every cabin we have rented through Elk Springs has been spotless and very well maintained!We are already getting ready to reserve one for next year before there gone.Like everyone else says we wish we had spent more time in the cabin,but being from Florida we don't get much snow so my kids had to live it up outside as much they they could!! keep up the good work Elk Springs and we cant wait to Vacation next year with you!

    We had a last minute chance to take a long weekend trip and didn't want to spend a lot of time driving, we're from Asheville and just wanted to go into the mountains to relax and hike. This is a wonderful place, convenient, well appointed, good roads, close to things you want but still away from everything, I've already recommended to a friend. Thanks, we'll be back!

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Elk Spring Resort cabin.The accomandations were perfect! The cabin was clean and the furnishing and decorations were beautiful. We loved the view and enjoyed sitting on the porch and listening to the birds.We also appreciated the WIFI,so we could check messages and receive phone calls if we were needed. We enjoyed cooking on the gas grill. It was so nice to cook some meals and be close enough to eat some meals out.We loved the location because it was close to the local merchants with so many handcrafted items to see and purchase.We loved the local people. They were very friendly and inviting. It was nice that downtown Gaitlinburg was close family enjoyed the weekend so much that we would love to visit again. We would also recommend this resort to friends and family. Thanks so much for a great vacation.

    "Can't Wait to Head Back"

    In the past I have generally wanted to revisit vacation locations like Florida, Hawaii, or Tennessee. It is rare for myself that the "hotel room" makes me want to come back to the same place for accommodation. Honestly if the entire state was snowed in and we were forced to stay inside the cabin, my trip would have still been great.
