Relaxing and Enjoyable Family Vacation
from Markle, IN on
My husband, daughter and I rented Away from Everyday for our Spring Break vacation. The reviews I read mentioned the difficult driveway, but we still weren't ready for it or the steep drive up to the cabin. The directions weren't very clear and it took some time (after a couple of wrong turns) to find the cabin as it is not clearly marked. It is difficult to turn around, but we drive a small car so it wasn't too bad. The cabin is very nicely decorated and we found the furniture and beds very comfortable. We played a lot of pool but it was difficult at times since the room was a little too small. We enjoyed the hot tub almost every day. It was very clear and just the right temperature! There were a few things that could have been better - the heat pump which is located directly under the deck ran A LOT and is every noisy, which made it difficult to sit outside and enjoy the sounds of nature; the outdoor fireplace didn't work on our last night; it appears previous guests have damaged some of the property (fence, stove, blinds, decorations) and that is unfortunate. The description says that there are no other cabins in site. I am sure in the summer and fall that is the case. We did find that it is one of the more secluded cabins, but there are a few cabins in sight and the neighbors were noisy a few nights. We had a couple of squirrels visit each day and two pileated woodpeckers ate from the trees around the cabin on our last day. Overall, we truly enjoyed our time here and would recommend Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg to anyone looking for a great place to stay.
