What Past Guests Are Saying
Fantastic relaxing vacation
This was our first experience in cabin rental and we were not disappointed. We booked this rental via the Internet from England and it was so easy to book with no problems and great communication all the way. The cabin was so much better than expected. Everything was spotless and the hot tub and games room were an added bonus. The area was very peaceful but not too far from Bryson. It was quite a steep hill to get up too but did not cause any problems driving. I would highly recommend this cabin and it had everything we needed. We hope to stay there again. The only thing that I would moan slightly about were the slightly uncomfortable creaky beds and the hot tub is outside the master bedroom and as it kicks in every 20 mins it sometimes sounds very loud when trying to sleep. That is a very minor complaint though. All in all we all had a fantastic time.

Thanksgiving at the Smokies...
The cabin, house really with a country flair, was clean and warm. Nice view. Only had two bones to pick: 1) no firewood was stocked. This was done for all our other cabin rentals in other locations; 2) While the game room was nice, it lacked heat. The space heaters provided popped the breaker when used. A small wood stove would be much better, no electric bill to deal with and radiates heat 360 degrees.

Very relaxing, comfortable cabin
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Beds and rooms were comfortable and large great room easily accommodated all of us. The boys really enjoyed the dart game and the hot tub.
Our only real issue was the dug up yard - moles??? - which kept the boys from playing much as the ground was too uneven to run around.

This cabin was very nice and suited what we were looking for as far as the space needed. The location is okay as long as your not looking forward to any large activities. It was very relaxing and secluded. I would recommend to a friend or would come back myself...

Peace and quite for a good price!
We (two cousins and I) have rented three cabins from Gscr
and will reserve again in aug. All three cabins have been great. No more noisy hotels or motels for us. Half the fun of coming to the mountains is sitting on the porch and just relaxing. Everything except personal stuff is there for your use. Your only obligation is repsect the cabin and enjoy your stay.
