We were impressed with our facilities. Needed nothing.
We travel often and this is by far one of our favorite places to stay. I highly reccommend Jackson mountain Homes.

We really enjoyed our stay in Gatlinburg. The cabin was very clean and spacious for the 10 of us that stayed here. This trip consisted of all ladies, but we are planning to bring our spouses back to Gatlinburg.
We are a group of 3 families with a total of 7 kids( ages 5-10)

We had a wonderful visit to smoky top lodge. The cabin was roomy and very clean. The 3 master type rooms all had king beds which were perfect for the three couples. Our kids loved taking turns on the double bed bunks upstairs and the couches/futon downstairs! We also enjoyed the use of the swimming pool, although it was the coldest pool any of us ever remembered swimming in. The hot tub on the deck was a blast! We had a hard time getting the tv on the basement level to work...we think we were missing a needed remote. We got it to play movies but never regular tv. It definitely could have been user error! We loved this cabin and would definitely consider renting again.

Our 3rd visit in a cabin in the Gatlinburg area. Smokey Top Lodge, is by far the best kept secret. Extremely clean, well stocked, very private, great view of the Smokey Mountains. Promise, we will be back!!!

This cabin is breathtaking, there were 9 adults and 4 children and it never seemed full in this cabin. It was stocked great with everything you would expect and more... This cabin is located great to run out to the store or just go for a stroll on the strip. The only thing I would do if I owned this cabin would be to put in a window unit ac in the loft it was actually to hot up there to sleep so we had to use the couches instead, but that is a quick fix:)

I could not be more pleased with our trip. The cabin was immaculate. Everything was in perfect working order. I have rented houses many times in the past and this was the most efficient company I have ever worked with. Would highly recommend and will always use Jackson Mountain Homes when we vacation in the Gatlinburg area.

Smokey Top has a wonderful location and great mountain views. Suited our group of 7. Well furnished throughout. The loft bedroom was hot, however. Driveway is a bit steep but this should not deter you from this great choice. Jackson was great workin with us. Highly recommended.

The home was warm and inviting from the moment you step in the door. From making the reservation to check out it was a wonderful experience. Our youth group was there for the Challenge Youth Conference and absolute enjoyed the priviledge of staying at this beautiful place. There was more than enough room for all 15 of us. Staying in this home for the weekend was definitely the cherry on top! We as a group were a little audio/visual challenged though, the x-box 360 was in spanish (bummer as non of us speak spanish) and there was no audio in the basement for the tv (bummer too cuz we couldn't figure out all weekend how to turn the volume on) We couldn't have been happier and felt more at home.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Smoky Top Lodge. We are glad that you all enjoyed it! We apologize that you experienced any problem with the X-Box system and television. If we had known that you were experiencing any difficulty, we would have been happy to send someone to the cabin to show you had to operate them. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you all again soon!
Clean, comfortable and fun!

We chose to stay with a Jackson Mountain managed property after all the positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Check in was simple, as was check out. Location was beautiful, and we even watched a black bear walk up our driveway, between our cars and into the woods!! The kids loved the bunk beds and the adults enjoyed the pool table. Only thing I wish we had was some sort of Rec room on the property to enjoy with family. Something near the pool with different options would've been nice. Maybe shuffleboard and ping pong. But aside from that everything else was enjoyable.

This was our fourth stay with Jackson Mountain Homes. The cabins are always beautiful and well kept. This however has been my favorite cabin of all. We had 4 families, total of 14 people with plenty of room and supplies. Look forward to coming back next year!
The cabin was great and good location.

The cabin was well furnished and had plenty of dishes. The game room was great as well. We played many games on the big screen TV. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only 2 things I would recommend changing. 1. I would have a covered Grill to allow barbequing in cooler weather and be larger for size of cabin. 2. I would change the description from steep drive to long driveway. All most all driveways in black bear falls are steep, but no steeper that the roads are. I think this makes people look for other cabins. And this cabin is great.

This cabin was absolutely wonderful. It was fantastic for couples since each had a king size bed in the 3 bedrooms we used during the stay The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of cooking utensils, wine glasses, etc. We really enjoyed the seclusion and were able to crank the music up one night without disturbing anyone There was plenty of room so we could have our own space if desired. The view was amazing and the cabin was very clean. A great time. We are already planning the next trip.

Cabin was very clean and beautiful. There was plenty of dishes etc. for our crew of 13.
Biggest issue was tje 3rd level bedroom wss hot and difficult to sleep in. Cabin owner had fan to blow air up steps which helped some. Needs to be addressed.
There was not enough deck furniture. 2nd level had a swing and two chairs, while lower level (hot tub) had only two chairs.
This is not enough for a cabin of this size.
The interior was beautiful and overall our stay was great. The view was magnificent.
We had an excellent extended weekend visit.

Except for checking in it was a wonderful vacation. We had several families arrive at different times from various parts of the country and the idea that we could not even visit the property to find its location was absurd. Since the access was difficult at best for a stranger it was impossible at night when some of our people arrived...at least identify the location with GPS coordinates before, or at the final payment time...this was very frustrating!!! Read more
Thank you for your comments. We are happy to hear that you had a wonderful vacation and apologize for any frustration you felt. It can be a bit overwhelming when driving in an unfamilar area, especially at night. Unfortunately, when we have someone checking out and someone else checking in on the same day, as happened the day you checked in, we aren't always able to accommodate an early check in. A large cabin such as this requires longer to thoroughly clean and inspect. The next time you visit, if you have family arriving at different time, please notify the office and we will be happy to provide each of them with directions to the cabin so that you don't feel any frustration in trying to get them to the cabin. We hope that you will choose Jackson Mountain Homes in the future.

WONDERFUL FAMILY VACATION

We had a great time in Gatlinburg. The Smoky Top Lodge could not have been better for our family.
There were plenty of sleeping accomidations, and the house was spotless. We enjoyed the back yard where we made smores on the grill. The children loved climbing the hill. We visited the caves, downtown Gatlinburg, the Apple Barn, We went to the corn maze, we walked through the park, and also trick & treated in downtown on Halloween.
We look forward to coming back soon, maybe in the summer to enjoy the water rafting, although we did enjoy the Autum leaves and weather.

From the time we took the turn up the hill to the secluded location of this fabulous home, we knew it was going to be a wonderful stay! The house was beautifully appointed with nice decor, granite countertops, large flat screen tvs, entertainment systems, games, large comfortable beds, and the view is outstanding! The hot tub could stand to be a little bigger for the size of the house, but you could get 4 people in it. Aside from that, this is by far the most perfect cabin we've stayed in, and we've been coming to this area for decades!
Great times with 3 families

We had three families, 6 adults and 8 children, we had a great experience. Everything was wonderful! We went River Rat Rafting, Hillbilly Golf, and shopping. All was great! We did some cooking, the only, absolutely only thing we would of liked different, is a little better cooking utensils and cookware. It was a little rough and the grill was not near big enough for 3 families! But overall experience was great! Second stay with Jackson Mountain, great results, we will be back! Thanks!
Beautiful home for our large family reunion!
Left on 08/21/2009 for a stay in July 2009 | Iplannedit
We had a family reunion in Gatlinburg and rented 3 homes from Jackson Mountain in Black Bear Falls. The location was very convenient - close to grocery stores and downtown. Check-in was painless and directions were easy to follow.
Smokey Top Lodge was perfect for us. We had 3 families staying there and it worked out great. One of the other homes we rented was within walking distance (down the steep hill - eaiser to get there than to walk home!). There was plenty of parking for our 5 cars plus visiters, but the steep hill required some delicate backing and we often had to rearrange cars. The house was more secluded than I expected, with vertually no neighbors within sight.
The house was new and in perfect condition. The only things that could be improved upon - I would put instructins for operating the complex TV system in the welcome book along with instructions for operating the hottub. The upstairs bedroom was very warm - no ceiling fan because of the bunkbeds. There were no wine glasses in the kitchen, although plenty of other glasses. The entire kitchen prep area was small for a house of that size, but we managed to make it work. An island sure would have been nice. Great to have two laundry areas and plenty of bathrooms.
Overall, I would hightly this home and Jackson Mountain Homes. Read more
Glad you enjoyed your stay in Smoky Top. We will be sure to pass along the suggestion of wine glasses and more directions. Thank you!

Everyone in our group loved the cabin. The location was great for Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The view was very beautiful and the area is peaceful and quiet. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The kids loved the pool at the Black Bear Falls Community Center. We would definately choose this cabin again!

This house and neighborhood offer beautiful views of the mountains! Smoky Top Lodge was the perfect size for our group of 14. Plenty of sleeping space, living area and with 5 full bathrooms as major a plus! The house was immaculate and offered plenty of entertainment for the kids! Just remember to bring your own iron, extra garbage bags, and dish soap. The location was great, close enough to town, but without the crowds.

We really had a great experience with our rental. The services were great. The home was very clean and in a very good location. We enjoyed the great views yet we had so much privacy. The home had so much space that we never felt crowded.The location was great we were able to go for walks,go swimming at the pool, or just sit on the deck and relax. We were located just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. I really liked everything about our recent stay.We have always used JMH for our rentals when we vacation in Gatlinburg and they have always been the greatest with their services. They have always met our expectations and made our vacations filled with nothing but great memories.

We were thoroughly impressed with Smoky Top Lodge! We were on an extended family vacation - 13 people from 3 different states. We had room to spread out and room to be together. The view was impressive - someone was always out on the deck enjoying the view. We were close to Gatlinburg and the Smokies so it was easy to come and go. We will definitely recommend these accommodations to our friends!

Absolutely a beautiful home with all of the amenities. Loved the decor and for now (until they build new homes around it,) it is more secluded than other homes in the Black Bear community. Only negative remark is that the small (too small for the size of the home) hot tub was located on the driveay instead of the porch.
Great family experience

What a great house. We put the kids downstairs and us adults were upstairs. The location is second to none and house was in perfect order when we arrived.
