    "The place of peace and relaxation. "

    This place was fantastic to come stay. It was fun for myself and my children. You didn't have to bring any dishes or towels. They even left some dish soap to wash dishes. It was almost like a home away from home. The view from the porch was beautiful in the early morning. So much peace and relaxation you wouldn't believe. The cabin was so clean and neatly organized. I will definitely recommend and go back.

    Me and my family really enjoyed our stay at the Summit Sanctuary. It was very spacious and clean. My kids really enjoyed the pool table a lot. The location was great; it only took 10-15 min to get to most attractions. I recommend these cabins for a family get away in the mountains.

    I had 10 ladies in my group and we stayed at the Summit Sanctuary. We LOVED the cabin, the hot tub, sauna, HUGE rooms and beds... Everything was clean, worked great, the kitchen was fully stocked with all of the pots and things we needed. I was blown away at how nice this place is. Not to mention the location is perfect for getting to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. I would recommend this to anyone, I definitely plan on going back.

    "Home Away From Home"

    Summit Sanctuary is a top notch home away from home!!! Even though I was able to see, through pictures, where I was going to spend some valuable downtime, I was blown away when I entered the cabin. Everything needed to feel at home and on a luxurious vacation was provided...a home theater, hot tub, sauna, outdoor barbecue, pool table and jacuzzi tubs. I could have filled out days and nights just enjoying the cabin and never leaving. It was out up time and down time!!! We will be back to Elk Springs Resort with our children and our extended family friends.

    "Beautiful Cabin for Our Wedding Guests!"

    We rented Southern Philosophy, Misty Mountain Lodge and Summit Sanctuary for our wedding ceremony and reception. All of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding that they ever attended! The staff was very accommodating and helpful, offering their assistance with any last minute needs! We could not have asked for a better location! The property was perfect for a 40 x 20' tent and our 85 guests! Summit Sanctuary was a weekend to remember for our close friends attending the wedding! They were amazed at the beauty and elligance of the cabin! Every one of them have made plans to go back!!! We rented the three cabins for our famiies and close friends to stay for the weekend, which was close to 40 people! . Everyone had a wonderful time during their stay, not only enjoying the ceremony but all the offerings of the cabins! From pool tables and theater rooms to saunas and hot tubs, Elk Springs Resort is top notch! No comparison to other rentals in the area! If you're looking for a fun, relaxing weekend away, or an excellent spot for a moderate sized wedding, you've found it! Thanks to all of the staff for making our special day better than imagined!

    "Beautiful Cabin!"

    This was such a perfect place for my family of 7. We loved all the wood in the cabin. The beds were comfy and the large double sized bunk beds downstairs were perfect for my kids. We also really enjoyed soaking in the hot tub. It was a great location being very close to the Smokey National Park and all the attractions in downtown Gatlinburg.

    We will definitely stay here again when we come back to the area.

    "Plenty of Room"

    Making cabin selection and reservations was so easy and fun thanks to Marty Rogers. She was very professional and very helpful. We have a family of 6, with my oldest son 24yrs. another two boys 16 and 14 yrs., and finally our "cherry on top", a daughter 10yrs. old. Everyone had plenty of room and privacy.
    The orientation of the cabin put the decks facing south, which gave the interior plenty of natural light. This would be perfect for extending the comfort of enjoying the 3 amazing porches even in late fall and winter. Even though we didn't have time to enjoy he theater room until our last night, it will be a must for all our future reservations. The screen size was perfect and the sound was top quality.
    I'm not a clean freak but I can spot a hair a mile away (It's a curse), but this cabin was spotless!
    The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need to prepare and serve home cooked meals. Don't bother packing a can opener "just in case", they have everything! Take foil if you want to line the grill though.
    Washer and dryer worked great, hot tub was wonderful while star gazing and sauna got nice and hot! Totally enjoyed our stay!!

    "Awesome Amazing Cabins"

    We loved our stay at the Summit Sanctuary cabin in Elk Resorts. Totally impressed by the cabin - for once the actual details matched the photos. The cabin had everything as shown in the pictures and very nicely decorated and stocked. The kids enjoyed having one level to themselves with the media room and the adults enjoyed the pool table and hot tubs. The linens, towels, dishes everything was clean. We actually plan to return to this resort going forward to enjoy quality and peaceful time with the family. Not once with a group of 10 for 3 days stay - had we to call the maintenance people for anything- that in itself speaks a lot of the quality Elk delivered. We have put the same feedback on tripadvisor too.. so that speaks volume!! Awesome ... hope u continue to keep it that way.
