What Past Guests Are Saying
Our Honeymoon at autumn Ridge
We loved our stay at autumn Ridge! It was the perfect place to escape the fast pace life demands of us and relax in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee. We woke up every morning and welcomed the clean mountain air, drank coffee with the birds chirping, cool breezes blowing, peace and quiet atmosphere, and weather in the upper 60's. In the evenings, we would return early to enjoy our cabin life, take a dip in the hot tub or just relax on the couch watching movies. I will admit the only downfall to this trip was our drive up and down the steep and narrow road. We drive an Expedition and it was not easy to park. Once we got up the mountain, we had to drive up past the cabin to the small cul-de-sac, back up at least once before driving down to pull into the neighbors yard across the street. We backed into our driveway to make it easier to maneuver the next morning. We are from Louisiana and not used to driving on such steep and narrow roads. We managed to make it work and during the next few days the drive was better. They do have areas for 2 cars to pass have a few places along the way to pull over, so once you figure out the route it will be easier. Another way we made it easier was to leave in the morning and return before dark. Overall, the cabin was immaculate and had all the essentials for a home away from home, including cable TV and WiFi. We did not see any wildlife but the scenery and seclusion away from the daily routines made our trip wanting us to stay and extra day or two. It really was a beautiful cabin and the check in/out was simple. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we enjoyed ours. Happy Trails!!
This is a wonderful cabin. We enjoyed our stay there and will most definitely stay there again. The cabin is fully stocked with all necessities and the grounds are just beautiful but when you walk out on the deck - wow!! The view is just breathtaking!!
Coal City, IL
we had a truly wonderful time in the smokies!
Our stay at the cabin was wonderful. The location to the activities in the surrounding areas was good, however, I didn't expect that the rental properties were among residential properties. This wasn't a problem but seemed to take away from the area as a whole. The cabin was very clean, nicely decorated and had everything that we could have wanted. The layout was a little different as the master bedroom was downstairs (the bottom level). The first couple of nights were a little chilly but then the weather warmed up considerably. The gas fireplace warmed up the room, but was on a 30 minute timer. Also, the grill was on the front porch rather than on the back deck. It would have been nice to have it in back so that we could have grilled and used the deck and hot tub at the same time. Just an inconvenience having it on the front porch was all. We loved the area and definitely plan on a return trip.
The cabin was perfect!The staff at Jackson Mountain Homes were always friendly and helpful!I found this cabin on line and was impressed with the photos of the view and then we arrived at the cabin and my husband and I were in awe of the view and the privacy(very important to us).We were on our 1st vacation by ourselves in 27 years with no kids or teenagers.We will be going back!The view was amazing! I thank God for the beauty!

Perfect weekend getaway
Autumn Ridge with Jackson Mountain Homes was better than we expected! It was perfect for our 1 year anniversary with the great view, hot tubs, fireplaces, and so close to the strip. This is my first trip to a cabin in Gatlinburg and I will not stay in a hotel again. The costs was less than most hotels and it truly gave you a mountain experience with a short drive down the mountain to many wonderful eating places and shopping. After getting ove the first drive up the mountain and being a little scared we got used to the trip and loved every minute of our three night stay.
Best time ever
Me an my wife loved it there we didn't won't to leave we went up there 3/1/13 and we got snowed in the first day it was great we will be going back soon..
Baton Rouge, La
Autumn Ridge is a beautiful cabin. My husband and really enjoyed our stay there. I love sunsets and the sunsets from the balcony were very beautiful. This cabin is in a quite secluded location yet easy to get into town and to the hiking trails. Very clean and comfortable. We will certainly book this cabin again.
It was very nice to sit in the hot tub and vie the amazing sunsets this cabin offers.
Perfect for our honeymoon!!
Autumn Ridge is a very beautiful and romantic cabin!! We stayed in it for our honeymoon. We did not want to leave!! The cabin was very clean and very comfortable!! Everything was very nice and up-to-date! The drive to the cabin is a little tricky, but we didn't get up there until after dark. Every other time it wasn't bad at all. I do recommend driving your smaller vehicle. Not just for the roads to the cabin, but for the entire mountain area! The staff of Jackson Mountain Homes were so friendly and considerate. They made the rental process very easy!! We will always rent from Jackson Mtn. Homes and will stay in autumn Ridge again soon I hope!!! Do not let this one pass you by!!!
Perfect vacation experience!
We are very well traveled. From the best cruise ships to some of the best resorts in Hawaii Mexico and Carribbean. For our 25th anniversary wanted something different. No hassle with flying. Found Gatlinburg. Better yet found autumn Ridge through Jackson Mountain Homes. When I tell you I researched it is an understatement. Looked at at least 10 different rental companies and found the best deal with Jackson. The home was perfect. Truly no exaggeration when they say about 5 minutes from downtown. But cabin seems so isolated. Our 25th anniversary was special because of the complete privacy from the back of our home away from home. The views from this cabin were truly understated. We loved getting away from it all but being close enough to enjoy town. I almost hate writing this review because I do not want to have a hard time renting this place in the future.
Autumn Ridge was a wonderful cabin to celebrate our anniversary.
Autumn Ridge was comfortable, beautifully decorated, and extremely clean!!! The view of the mountains from the decks is simply breathtaking. We had seven different bear sightings during our stay here!! The people at Jackson Mountain Homes were friendly and helpful. The road to the cabin does get narrow and winding, but after the first time the drive does not seem bad. Better road signs would make finding the cabin easier. Definitely would love to stay here again.
The best one year anniversary present
The mountain view was beyond our expectations. The cabin was perfect. It was spacious, spotless and tasteful. It did get warm in the living room and loft, but the ceiling fan helped to cool the rooms. The only thing is the road up is extremely narrow. On our way up, we met a vehicle going down and did not have enough room to pass. Be careful because there are blind corners as well. We stayed for six days and found it very hard leaving. We enjoyed it that much. If you are thinking about staying autumn Ridge is excellent. There are a couple of cabins close by, but the view from the back balcony is very private. The balcony to the bedroom is very secluded.
Another great experience w/ JMH! This cabin can't be topped. It is just the best! The mountain view is way better than the pictures on the website showed. The overall quality of everything was excellent. It took a couple of days to get used the narrow drive but the seclusion and view was worth it once we were up there. I highly recommend this cabin. You will not be disappointed.
We will be back!
We stayed at autumn Ridge. We could not have been more pleased! This was our first time renting a cabin and first time coming to Gatlinburg and we loved it. This cabin is modern, feels like home, is in a great location and has great views. I was so impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin as well. The condition of everything inside was top notch also. The road leading to the cabin was a little unnerving at first but we quickly got use to it. The road is paved but narrow in spots with a couple of blind turns. I am afraid of heights so if I can be fine with it, I'm sure others could too. There are two other cabins close by, but I imagine in the summer when the trees are leafed out, you can't even see one of them. The other is across the street so only the front sides are facing each other. When you are on your deck you have complete privacy. When we stayed no one was renting either cabin so we felt like we had the mountain to ourselves. This could possibly be our best vacation yet, and we have been married for 27 years. Rent with confidence here.

My husband and I stayed at autumn Ridge in March for are 10 year anniversary and I have to say for are first trip to Gatlinburg we picked a perfect cabin. Getting to it was a little scary but once we where up there it was breathtaking! I hope to return with my children and stay at another wonderful cabin through Jackson Mountain Homes! Thanks for everything (;
By far, one of the best vacations I have ever been on! The view was amazing. The cabin was amazing. Gatlinburg was amazing...it even snowed one morning! We will definitely be back!
Randy & Tari
Best vacation ever!!!
We absoutely loved staying at this cabin!!! Actually we didn't want to leave it!! The cabin was clean could not even find a cobweb!!! The bed was comfortable!!! A truly spectualar view of the mountains!! We did not see any bears which would of been very exciting...but, we did buy a bear to take home!! We will be staying with the Jackson Homes in July with all our family at the Kodak Cabin!! I can not wait! And, hopefully we will stay at autumn Ridge next year! Only downside...the road leading to it was very scary (no side rails) only one car could fit on it!
Sugar Hill, Ga.
This was our second time staying at autumn Ridge. We love the quietness, view, hot tub, and pool table. My husband and I come here to celebrate our anniversary and we always enjoy ourselves. We look forward to staying here again in the future.
Honeymoon Heaven !
We have stayed with Jackson Mountain Homes before, but this was our honeymoon and we wanted everything to be just right.
Autumn Ridge was the perfect spot. Quiet, comfortable, warm, cozy, relaxing, everything you could need was there. Great king size bed, wonderful hottub, soothing jacuzzi tub. Lots of windows so you can see the "fantastic view" from any room or either deck !
Like all rentals at the "top" of the Smokeys the road is a little crooked and steep, but hey , do you want to get away from it all, this is it. The two gas fireplaces were very nice , we will have to come back when it's snow covered sometime. Perfect for two.
After searching 100's of cabins, this is the one!
If you love a more secluded cabin, very close to downtown Gatlinburg, with perfect views of the National Park mountains, then this cabin is what you have been looking for! The pictures of this cabin are accurate and the view was exactly what we hoped for. We normally stay on the strip in one of the many motels but chose a cabin this time. If you are reading this, then you know how difficult choosing a cabin will be. If you are looking for a family resort with multiple cabins in a complex, then this is not for you. No pool, etc that a complex might offer. But if you are looking for what we were: a more private setting just close enough to everything but with that "perfect view" we all crave, then Jackson Mountain Homes rental company and this cabin is the one!! Jmh not only easily accommodated our very late check-in, but also had a personal hand decorated note tucked into our check-in package wishing us a Happy anniversary! This cabin is located off Cherokee Orchard Rd/Baskins Creek Rd/ Loop Rd. This cabin's view is situated toward the actual Smokies, with the Park Vista hotel slightly to the right between you and the mountains. You can see the lights from the sky lift on the strip off to the right. To your left is a mountain rising straight up. Read the other reviews regarding the road up to the cabin, and the suggestion to back down the dead-end road into the driveway if you are in a larger vehicle. The bedroom is a little chilly, but there are extra blankets for the bed in baskets with extra pillows. The fireplace is on a timer because of the propane. But I'd rather not haul or chop wood while on vacation unless we're camping :-)
I dread writing this...hoping this cabin will be available for our next trip because the popularity will increase will most who choose it...but how can I not commend this location, view, JHM staff and the owners for creating a perfect place in the Smokies? P.S., we used OnStar to be sure we could find the cabin. Read the map JMH provides carefully and drive slowly.

A perfect mountain retreat that has breathtaking views!
We thoroughly enjoy our stay at autumn Ridge. Thanksgiving 2011 was our 4th stay there and we hope to spend many more holidays there. It is such a beautiful cabin with a breathtaking view of the mountains. We enjoy the privacy on that mountain location. We have been customers of Jackson Mountain Homes and highly recommend them. They are very courteous and professional and have excellent follow up throughout the reservation and stay with them.
A pleasant get-away.
Great cabin, amazing view. The drive to the cabin was tough. Not possible in the winter time or with a smaller car. Other that a definite recommend.
Bowling Green, KY
We had an awesome time at the cabin and loved the wireless Internet . The only complaint was the leaf covered road to get to the cabin. It was impossible to tell where the road side ended.
We really enjoyed autumn Ridge. We loved how quiet, peaceful, and private it was. The cabin was not close to other cabins, which added to the secluded feeling. The cabin was very clean, we felt like we were the first ones staying there. The views were amazing. We really enjoyed using the hot tub on those chilly autumn evenings. We had some difficulties with it when we first arrived but maintenance came right out and adjusted it. Jackson Ridge called us up after our first night to ask how everything was - great customer service. The cabin also has a pool table which was a lot of fun. There are two fireplaces, which add to the ambiance. The mattress in the bedroom was actually very comfy, a lot of rentals let the mattress get old and not replace it, etc but that was not the case here. The road to the cabin is kind of scary the first couple of times you do it, but after a while you get used to it and realize that there are not that many people coming up and down the mountain (the road turns into a one lane road in certain places, which blind curves). Make sure to follow Jackson Ridge's directions to the tee when getting to autumn Ridge, they are accurate directions. Some flat screen Tv's would make a wonderful touch to this cabin :) But overall we would definitely return, this is a great relaxation getaway.
The Knowles Family
The best view yet.
Autumn Ridge is a great place to get away with your wife or small family. It is private with a great view of the mountains. The leaves were very colorful at sunrise and sunset.We had a great time and would highly suggest you stay here. We saw fourteen wild turkeys a few squirrels but no bears.
Our stay was awesome. the view from the cabin was beautiful. The cabin was everything we could have asked for and had every amenity we could need.
Refreshing and Restorative and Private
Can't be beat. The cabin is clean and well stocked. The views are incredible. The hot tub is great. Incrdibly private! The road to get there is a mountain road. Can't think of anything to imporove our stay.
View was breathtaking, but the cabin needs some updates!
Autumn Ridge is a great cabin with a view that will match all others. We stayed here and were overall very happy with our experience. The only complaint was the cabin needs some updates...the Tv's are old and need to be modernized. The mattress on the king size bed was very very uncomfortable and old..it need to be replaced and finally the main couch had a very very pungent odor..so much so we couldn't sit on it! If these things were addressed it would be a great find in the Smokies!
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 10/06/2011
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Autumn Ridge. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate your suggestions and will forward them to the owner. We apologize that you experienced any discomfort with the bed and odor on the sofa. We will assess both for replacement. We appreciate you bringing these items to our attention and your understanding. We hope to see you again soon.
The most peaceful and relaxing cabin
The cabin's cleaniness was outstanding. We loved the amenities (hot tub, jacuzzi, gas and charcoal grill, washer/dryer, Tv's). We had a beautiful view of the mountains. Our time there was very peaceful and relaxing. Within five minutes of downtown Gatlinburg. We will definitely go back next year.

awesome vacation at autumn ridge
the cabin was very nice. The road up to the cabin needed more road signs.the view of the mountains was awesome.saw one bear.
My wife and I spent our honeymoon here! It was very isolated and quiet. The cabin was absolutely beautiful. The view was gorgeous! The drive up the mountain was a little scary, but worth it. The a/C in the place kept the bedroom freezing cold, while the rest of the cabin kind of struggled to keep cool. But, that was really no big deal. We just closed a couple of vents in the bedroom and it seemed to blow a little harder out of the rest of the vents. All in all, it was a perfect honeymoon spot. I loved drinking coffee out on the balcony in the early morning with the mountain view! It was perfect!
Glen Carbon, IL
Absolutely breathtaking !!!
Jmh is the only place we will ever rent from when coming to the area. We heard the horror stories about dirty cabins, poor service, misrepresented rentals and none of this could have been farther from the truth at JMH. We reviewd over 200 cabins before selecting the autumn Ridge and we could not have had a better stay uless it would have come with a butler! The location was breathtaking, cabin was modern and clean, and the service was first rate. We will be back sooner than later and JMH will be getting the call again!
Jmh has done it again...provided us with another great vacation...we have stayed at 3 other cabins...all great...its nice to get away to rest and relax...very clean and excellent service from the staff at JMH..
thanks for another great stay.
A Great Place to Stay!
After many days and nights searching on the internet for the perfect cabin for my husband and I's 10 year anniversary getaway, Autumn Ridge was the only cabin we kept going back to. Once we arrived to the cabin, we were amazed by where the cabin was located. All the pictures on the website we viewed was exactly what we were hoping for! The mountain view was amazing! This was exactly what we wanted and needed for a couple get away. The cabin was very nice and the views throughout the cabin were just breathtaking. One thing to remember while you are going to the cabin for the first time is to really pay attention because when you go down for the first time, you question where to turn. But, once you drive the route a few times, it's no big deal. Other then that, everything was perfect! We both highly recommend this cabin if you are looking for a place to relax with peace and quiet and with a gorgeous moutain view.
New Providence, Pa.
This cabin is perfect if you want to be close to town.
Autumn Ridge is secluded, quiet and a perfect place to relax. The view was very nice. The cabin was clean and the hot tub was nice. We had bear in a couple times in the mornings. I would rent this cabin again in the future but it is for sale so I hope the new owners will still rent it out. The drive up is not that bad just alot of turns.
New Orleans, LA
The cabin was gorgeous! The views were incredible. The cabin is in a great location; private and quiet, yet just a few minutes drive to the Parkway and the park entrance. We will definitely stay here again!
Lived up to expectations!
After reading all the reviews we booked this cabin for our belated anniversary celebration. Autumn Ridge and Jackson Mountain Homes lived up to all the great comments. The cabin was very clean, cozy and comfortable. At first we weren't sure we would like the bedroom downstairs but it was so cozy, we loved it! The drive up to the cabin is not bad at all. Unless we bring the whole family we will definitely stay in autumn Ridge again!
My husband and I were so impressed by this cabin! We searched for many cabins online and when I showed him this one he immediately said that this was it. We were a little skeptical about how nice the cabin was really going to be since photos can be deceiving. We also thought this was too good to be true when we couldn't find a bad review, but what you see is what you get with this little find! The view was beautiful, even though there weren't many leaves on the trees. We will definitely return to this cabin in the future.
Every thing was great!! The staff was oanderful, they even called the next morning to make sure every thing was ok. The cabin was above what I expected. The view was great!! This was a wonderful experience..
Wonderful time for me to get away from it all and relax
Pass Christian, MS
Best vacation in 23 years
My wife and I are exercise buffs and we were looking for a relaxing and challenging, short get away. We chose Gatlinburg, TN and Jackson Mountain Homes. The cabin was amazingly comfortable and the hospitality of the check-in staff was second to none. We hiked all day everyday for four days and then went back to the most comfortable cabin we've ever stayed in. The accommodations were perfect after a long day of hiking. The cabin was romantic and relaxing. We will be back and soon!
Comfortable and Relaxing
My wife and I enjoyed autumn Ridge. All we did for the four days was crash and we had a great scenic view to look at. The hot tub was great. We would recommend it for others.
One draw back was the master bedroom on the lower floor. We would have liked to have rented something with the master on the same level as the living space.
Susan and Tom B.
Fantastic views and very fun
Autumn Ridge and Jackson Mountain Homes are top notch. We have stayed at this cabin twice and love the views, the hot tub, the pool table, and serene location. Jmh staff are friendly and helpful.
This home has the most beautiful views, from every room in the house. The fireplaces and hot tub add a wonderful touch of romance. Road up is a little scary, but you get used to it and it is certainly worth the drive to be at the top of the hill.
Chris A and family
Beautiful winter getaway
Excellent getaway with the family. Cozy, comfortable accomodations, beautiful view. Only glitches were: 1) steep drive to get up to cabin (icy roads make it tricky) and 2) Fireplaces didn't work first day we stayed there. Otherwise, a wonderful, relaxing vacation and would come back.
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 01/13/2011
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Autumn Ridge. We are happy to hear that you had an excellent getaway! We apologize that the fireplaces were not working and are happy the owner was able to get them working for you. We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you again soon at Autumn Ridge!

Stayed in autumn Ridge over New Years and had a great time. The cabin was very nice and clean. The view from the decks and hot tub are awesome!

Sugar Hill, Ga.
We stayed in autumn Ridge for the first time ever. We were celebrating our first anniversary. It was everything we expected it to be plus more! It snowed the day we arrived so it looked like a Winter Wonderland! It was beautiful. The view was amazing. It was breathtaking. It was everything the reviews stated that it was. The sunset from the hot tub was beautiful. It was also very private which is what we wanted. I expected the roads leading to the cabin to be absolutely terrible and frightening after reading all of the reviews but it was not bad at all so no worries. We arrived when it was dark so the first time was challenging not knowing what to expect of the roads but once we had done it and during the daylight hours it was no issue.( It had also snowed and iced and we still had no issue to or from the cabin) The only worry at all was the sharp turns(I believe there were two) but once we had done it we had no issue. I would recommend arriving in the daylight hours. Also- for first-timers I suggest backing in the driveway. You can go past the cabin and you hit a dead-end. Turn around and come back down and back in. It makes leaving much easier. That way you don't have to back out and down the hill when you leave.We didn't pass one car to or from the cabin on the roads and we stayed 7 nights and left daily. Everyone had worried me about the size of the roads. The trip was everything we expected (except that we did not see bears and really wanted to) and we will return.
We had a wonderful honeymoon way up the mountain.
Our cabin was great. The drive up was kind of scary. The cabin was pretty clean and had excellent views of the mountains and gatlinburg. We had problems with ladybugs (i think it was just the time of year) and when we called the office to complain they did everything they could to help us out. We felt very comfortable in autumn Ridge and can't wait to go back!
Bowling Green, KY
A little piece of heaven.
We stayed at this cabin in October 2009 and October 2010. We love the size and location. The view is tremendous and the cabin is very comfortable.
Broken Arrow OK
Loved the view
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this perfect cabin. We loved the view. This was our first trip to the Smoky Mountains and we could not have picked a better place to stay.
J & S
After spending our honeymoon at autumn Ridge, we came back for our second anniversary. We enjoy the beautiful view that feels miles away from everything, yet so easy to get to and close to all the fun down below. The cabin was wonderful as always and the perfect size for the two of us. Snow the morning we left got us in the holiday spirit.
Martin and Susan Marsh
This cabin was great. It had a best view of any cabin we have ever stayed in. It was secluded and very clean. I will be staying there again. It would be great for honeymoon or anniversary.
"Crazy about Autumn Ridge"
Somehow, we found the best cabin in the mountains on our first try. It was just right ~ spacious enough to be comfortable, but cozy enough to feel homey and inviting. This cabin is now on our top favorite vacation spots.
A great place to stay.
I planned a vacation getaway for my wife and I to celebrate our 25th anniversary, I could not have picked a better place for us to stay. My wife and I commented again and again just how perfect everything about our stay was. The cabin was beautiful, the view was everything that we hoped it would be and the proximity to Gatlinburg was nice. We will return and rent from Jackson Mountain Homes again.
We had a great time at autumn Ridge. The place was very nice, cozy, and had a great view! We did run into a lot of bugs inside the cabin during the week though...I guess that is expected during the summer time though.
We were extremely satisfied with our stay at autumn Ridge! The cabin is well-kept, the location is convenient to the National Park and the view is absolutely incredible. My kids enjoyed the hot tub and pool table and their only disappointment was not seeing any bears! We will definitely stay at autumn Ridge again.
Clay City, KY
Privacy, with a wonderful mountain view!
My husband and I have stayed in autumn Ridge twice. The cabin is perfect for a couple, or a couple with older children. The bedroom is downstairs and the sleeper sofas are unstairs on the main level so it may not be suited for families with young children. This house has one of the most breathtaking views of any place we have ever stayed. We have stayed in the Smokies about twice a year for the past 15 years and this cabin has one of the best views. Gas fireplaces in living area and bedroom are also nice. Had trouble with the hot tub shuting off on it's own, but quick response after I called the office. Office staff professional and nice at check in and when I called about the hot tub. Road curvy and steep but the view makes up for it, just drive slow and it's OK. First time we stayed we drove an extended cab, full size truck and the second time we drove a SUV, we had no problems but did drive slow and tried to not be out too late. We would highly recommend this cabin to other guests.
My wife and I had an amazing weekend in this cabin. The views are amazing and Jackson Mountain homes does everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. The cabin was extremely clean and was much better than expected. There were all the pots and pans you would need to cook with and nothing was out of place. We will definitely be back
New York, NY
I hope this doesn't cause prices to increase for future guests, but we were both amazaed at the value we received. We thought about staying in a bed and breakfast but wanted to spend the little extra to get a cabin up in the mountains. We were both impressed with the price of the cabin. The whole process of checking in and getting to our cabin was very easy (and everyone we spoke to was very helpful). Once we arrived at the cabin things even got better. The cabin met our every expectation and there were no unexpected surprises. Everything was clean and in great shape. I would recommend this anyone and will definitely be using JMH in the future!
Came for the Mountains
Autumn Ridge - Second review
Jackson Homes staff gave us great service starting w/ info as we chose our rental, the reservation process (very easy - all via email!), and our arrival.
Autumn Ridge was reasonably clean, nice amenities, nasty drive up (don't worry - you'll get used to it!), and a 10 star view! (Which was the main reason we picked this home.)
At Autumn Ridge, our favorite amenity was the pool table, as I had never played before (altho' we wished the loft was 2ft wider OR we had a sawed-off pool cue for those shots where the post and railing interfered!). Our least favorite feature of Autumn Ridge was lack of a frying pan in the kitchen supplies, dirty dishes in the cupboards (not housekeeping's responsibility - this is on the previous renter!), no screens (had to use the AC when just some ventilation from outside would have been suficient. But, we couldn't leave doors/windows open because of bees) AND - for us, the close neighbors. Most guests feel it was a secluded cabin, but for us it was not, as out home in PA is completely secluded w/ no neighbors in sight!
Now, the area of Gatlinburg: we came here for the Great Smoky Mts National Park - the hiking and wildflowers. That was fantastic! Downside of that was 3 main park areas closed for road maintenance which left the other areas crowded for off-peak. But the wildflowers were in their prime and we really enjoyed that. As far as town - we stopped in one evening for dinner, decided town was everything we dislike about a town, and went back to Autumn Ridge!
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 04/22/2010
Thank you for your comments. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience! We will forward your suggestion for short pool cues, additional frying pans, and window screens to the owner. We apologize that the previous guests placed dirty dishes in the cabinet. The next time you visit, if you encounter any problem, please contact the office and we will send someone to the cabin right away to take care of it. Cades Cove is re-opening this Saturday April 24th and the other temporary road closures are set to re-open soon, so the next time you visit you should be able to enjoy them! By the way, if you've never visited in the fall, it is absolutely beautiful! We hope to see you again soon!
We'll be back!
The cabin was beautiful, just as pictured online, and was very clean.
The location of the cabin is on top of a dead-end mountain road and was very peaceful and secluded.
We loved being off by ourselves and yet it was only about 2 miles to the grocery store or downtown Gatlinburg. The thing that we liked least was leaving the cabin and returning to reality :( We will be back & while there may be other companies who rent cabins in Gatlinburg, we trust Jackson Mtn. Homes and will be repeat customers. Thanks for the best vacation experience!
Great view, very comfortable cabin, great time
We enjoyed the experience very quiet private location. Cabin was great, view even better. We will return.
Autumn Ridge is a little slice of heaven!
We very much enjoyed the Autumn Ridge Cabin and Jackson Mountain Homes service. We were in Gatlinburg celebrating our 20th Anniversary and were very pleased with everything. The cabin had wonderful mountain views, a nice interior, a pool table and hot tub on the deck. We would love to stay there again!! All in all~ a great experience!
Beautiful Mountain Home
This is a beautiful home with a gorgeous view. It had everything we needed
and more. Within minutes of Gatlinburg, it was both secluded and convenient
This was my first trip to the mountains and my first cabin rental and I hope it won't be my last. The cabin we rented was everything they said it would be and the pictures do not capture all of the beauty of the rooms. It was private, well maintained and the scenery was gorgeous. We did not see any bears because they were hibernating but we got snow and it was just beautiful. There was not one thing that we needed that the cabin did not provide except MORE TIME THERE!!!

Autumn Ridge Stay
The home itself was very nice. Amenities were good. Perfect place for a couple to spend a long weekend or week. The view was absolutely spectacular and home was conveniently located.
However, I was very disappointed in the cleanliness of the cabin. There were dead flies everywhere in this place. The great room floor, loft floor, window sills, etc. I have never in my life seen so many flies in one place, dead or alive. I suggest that when the cabin is cleaned that the floors are swept and window sills are checked for dead bugs. They were quite excessive and we had to watch where we stepped the entire length of our stay.
Overall we were pleased with our stay!

Thank you for your comments and we are glad you liked the cabin. Please let us address the flies. The cabin was cleaned thoroughly on the last checkout which was five days prior to your arrival. We had our Quality Control inspector in the cabin the day prior to your arrival. The problem is we had a little heat bloom before your arrival where the temperatures were in the 60's which caused flies and ladybugs. We had several cabins affected by this. The reason they died was because we have monthly pest control. Had you called us during your stay, we would have gladly come up and vacuumed the cabin for you. We do apologize this regional insect problem.

We had a very nice time in Autumn Ridge. The only thing that I would say would be nice to have since we do not have someone who comes daily to fill up things, to give more paper towels, towels, a dust pan to sweep on all the lady bugs. It was very nice and we really enjoyed ourselves. We will be back for sure!
This cabin was beautiful! The drive up there was a little scary, but well worth it! We only wish we could have seen a bear! Very close to downtown. I will coming back and bringing friends!

Autumn's Stay at Autumn Ridge
My husband, Bill, and I stayed at the Autumn Ridge cabin in Gatlinburg in October 2009. The cabin was wonderful, although a tad too warm to enjoy the fire places. It was clean, easy to locate, and had amazing views. We plan on staying there again on our next trip to Gatlinburg. Thanks for a memorable vacation.

Very nice, clean log home is a very secluded and private area. Beautiful mountain views. Road a little narrow for a large vehicle, but just drive slow and watch for other cars. Would recommend to other travelers.
Classic Log Home in a Beautiful Setting
Home was situated perfectly on the ridge to enjoy the mountain views and the city of Gatlinburg below. We were able to access all of the Smoky Mtn. activities and scenery easily from this location. The log home will afford you two comfortable decks to sit and relax after a day of hiking and biking. Services from Jackson Mountain Homes was courteous and quick to resolve an air conditioning problem after hours.
A beautiful mountain get-away!
This was our second stay at Autumn Ridge and was the occasion of our 25th
anniversary. We first visited this beautiful cabin 5 years ago for our 20th
anniversary. The home is very clean, cozy and relaxing. The interior, with its
cathedral ceiling, gives you the open air feel that you want in this location.
The jacuzzi for 2 is marvelous after those hikes in the mountains and the view
from either balcony is breath taking.
My only request would be some type of grill on the deck. Although, fighting off
a friendly raccoon wanting to share our dinner was a unexpected treat.
Rocking chairs on the bedroom deck would also be a wonderful addition.
Beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting.
Exciting Place To Enjoy
Great cabin with a great view. Well maintained. Maybe the best cabin for the view of the mountains.
A great vacation any time of the year although the road to get there is challenging.
The only two things missing were bear and utensil. We had hoped to see some bear. The kitchen is missing many much needed utensils.
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 09/25/2009
Thank you for your comments. Bears are exciting to see - sometimes they are everywhere and other times they just hide! :) We have the cabin owner assess the kitchen for untensils - thanks for for letting us know! We hope to see you again soon!
The best place ever
I can't say enough about this cabin! We had such an amazing time and would
definitely visit again! Autumn Ridge has such a wonderful view and it is so
secluded and thats just what we wanted! I am recommending this cabin to all
of my friends and family. Thank you
Autumn Ridge- amazing honeymoon/anniversary getaway
Our stay at Autumn Ridge was amazing. It is secluded, cozy, clean, has great amenities (hot tub on patio, jetted pool, pool table, fireplaces, etc.), it has an extraordinary view of the mountains and sunset, and it is conveniently located near downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It is secluded and serene for nature lovers and others who enjoy peace and quiet. It is also close to a variety of things to do in the area for enjoyment and fun. I would highly recommend this cabin for couples on their honeymoons and celebrating anniversaries.
Autumn Ridge is a true beauty!
From the moment I saw it online, I knew that Autumn Ridge would be a
great place for my wife and I to get away for a few days. I booked it online
and a representative from Jackson Mountain Homes called me the very next
day to verify the online reservation and answer questions. From the
moment we arrived in Gatlinburg to the moment we left, we felt absolutely
at ease. The check-in was very simple and the staff was great. The cabin is
nearly a mile and a half up the mountain road (rather steep and narrow at
times) but it was not difficult to find.
The cabin itself was absolutely beautiful and was well prepared for the
week. The owners of the cabin and Jackson Mountain Homes have done a
wonderful job maintaining this home. It was very clean and very
welcoming. Every night when we returned to the cabin, we felt totally at
ease and relaxed. There was a binder of material left for guests that details
many, many ideas for getting out and about both inside the town of
Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains National park. It came in handy more
than once and helped us plan out daily events.
We stayed in this home for almost a week and did not want to go home!
Thank you to Jackson Mountain Homes for making our getaway a very
enjoyable one! We would definitely work with that company again.
We loved Autumn Ridge. It did not disappoint us! It was clean and well
maintained. The setting was beautiful and private. It was stocked with extras
that we didn't expect. We had trouble with the two TV's our first day and the
service person came right out and fixed them. Great service!
Some people thought the drive up the mountain was a minus but we thought
it was a plus. We loved every twist and turn. We saw bears and wild turkeys
on the drive up too. We loved it and would love to return to the Smokey
Mountains again in the future. We will most surely stay with Jackson Mountain
Wonderful, charming experience
The cabin was immaculately maintained - seemed brand new. The view was incredible. Easy access to Gatlinburg and the National Forest. We hiked or white water rafted each day that we were there. Short distance from restaurants and shops in Gatlinburg. The road to the cabin is a little treacherous - just have to take it slow. Directions from Jackson Mountain Homes were spot on. We definitely would recommend this location and plan to stay in the area again.
The reservation process was easy and everyone was so helpful and friendly. Our cabin was just gorgeous. The trip was an anniversary surprise for my husband and he loved it. The view was incredible and we had a lovely time. We will be returning for sure!
Stay was fantastic. Left a day early cause I was homesick. Hope to be back next fall with my whole family.
We purchased a gift certificate from the local PBS auction. It was clean and had every thing we needed. The view is breathtaking, we hope to go back in the fall. The staff was friendly and had everything ready for us when we arrived. They give you lots of coupons for attractions and food. Read the notebooks they have in the cabin, that other guests have written in. They give you info about the area. One thing...don't try to turn around in the drivway unless you have a little car. Try backing in instead. Carol B.

Great stay at Autumn Ridge
We had a fantastic 9 days here at the cabin. The hot tub and deck views were amazing. There was enough space for all 4 of us - each child had their own sofa bed and hubby and I had the master suite. It was too perfect. We will be coming back again next year.
Great View & Very Private
The road to get to the property is a paved one lane goat trail but it is well worth the drive. The view is spectacular, especially when appreciated from the hot tub. We also enjoyed seeing either a bear or wild turkeys in the woods every day. Furthermore, it is very quiet and private. We did not see or hear another car the entire time. We have stayed in many places in Gatlinburg over the years and Autumn Ridge is one of the best.
beautiful home - difficult to ge to!
We have stayed at Jackson Mountain Homes before so we expected to find a nice cabin - clean - comfortable and fun - and we were not disappointed. Autumn Ridge is a beautiful cabin - and sitting on the porch looking out over the mountain is a breathtaking experience. However, the drive to the cabin is also breathtaking - and gut wrenching! We found ourselves hanging around Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge until later in the evening because we knew once we faced the drive up the side of the mountain we wouldn't come back down until morning. I wish this had been a little better advertised that the access road to the cabin was very steep and became 1-way.
The cabin had great views from all rooms. We saw bears on 2 different occasions near the cabin. It is not easy to get to the cabin but well worth the effort. It is very close to Gatlinburg with a wonderful view so if you are looking for a one bedroom cabin, this is a great one.
great place to stay
went there for our honeymoon . it was one of the most fun times we have ever had . we have rented from jackson befor and had a outstanading time then . would recomend this to anybody that likes privacy and being one step away from heaven . you can almost see it from this cabin . only complaint was we were there during a insect time of the year , otherwise it was the best . thanks to you for a very memorable honeymoon . we are thinking about going every year for our annaversary .
We are return customers to Jackson Mountain Rentals. Our first time was our Honey Moon where we stayed at the Dove's Nest. Since then we have retured every other year on our anniversary. We don't even consider renting from anyone but Jackson Mountain - because they are the absolute "BEST"!
We highly recommend Autumn Ridge and Dove's Nest as a romantic getaway. They are both secluded for privacy yet close to all the excitment and events of Gatlinburg. We actually saw our first bear which was absolutely wonderful. The cabins are always spotless clean and ready for us upon arrival. The staff is friendly, informative, and always available, yet, the give us the privacy we want.
Always a wonderful stay and we highly recommend Jackson Mountain Rentals.
Location! View! and More!
Beautiful cabin in a great location. Fantastic view. No problems though the road is steep so in icy weather could be tricky but not an issue for our stay. JMH was fantastic to work with - again. This is now our favorite JMH cabin.
Worth the Money!
We spent the weekend in one of the Cabins in Gatlinburg, TN. It was wonderful and well worth the money we spent. The Cabin slept 6 comfortably and the kids loved the pool table. The thing I enjoyed most was the view of the mountains and how peaceful it was at night. The only complaint I had was how narrow the road up the mountain was. We drove a Sequoia, SUV and it took up the whole road, if another vehicle was on the opposite side of the road we would have had to back down the mountain. In all I would recommend this vacation home to anyone, I loved it!
Very enjoyable, would stay again!
This is a perfect cabin for a couple get-a-way. We enjoyed ourselves immensley and would go back at the drop of a dime. Sitting on the top of the mountain watching the sunset in the hot tub was amazing. the only thing I would do different on my next stay is spend more time at the cabin relaxing. The owner was very pleasant and helped fix the one small problem we encountered immediately.
We chose this particular cabin based on the writeup that it had a view, pool table, hot tub and fireplace. It was exactly what we were looking for in a cabin. It had an outstanding view, was very clean and had great privacy (unlike some cabins that were almost on top of one another). The road narrows as you go up the mountain to the cabin so the drive may not be ideal for the squemish! The driveway is also a little tricky to manuever out of.
The only complaint we had was that the gas fireplaces only stayed lit for 30 minutes (on a timer)and we almost froze in the master bedroom and had to move up to the main floor and use the sofa sleeper the second night. (It was extremely cold outside that weekend, though.)
We would definitely return to this cabin but more importantly, we will certainly use JMH again. The people were excellent to work with and very knowledgeable of their properties. Check-in and check-out were simple,they gave detailed directions on how to get right to the cabin and even called us to make sure we arrived and had everything we needed.
I recommend this property highly if you want seclusion and a great mountain view.
Response from Jackson Mountain Homes - 06/18/2009
Just to let you know the driveway has been widened since this time to allow more room to manuever and back out. Thanks for all your other comments!

Great rental for quiet relaxation
We had a wonderful time at Autumn Ridge. It had everything we needed and was very cozy and secluded. We enjoyed unseasonably cold weather in April, and really enjoyed the fireplaces and hot tub after long days of hiking in the park. The kitchen was very well equipped with dishes, utensils and even wine glasses. We would definitely go back!
