We booked this cabin for a group of 25. I cannot express enough how perfect this cabin met our needs & actual was above & beyond what everyone expected!! The Christmas tree & decorations on and inside the cabin made it even magical! The service was excellent, and the welcome email sent ahead of time had everything & anything we needed to know!

70th Birthday Surprise/Family Reunion
Left on 07/23/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | Raven H. and Family
We had an amazing time! We were extremely impressed with all the amenities. SkyView clearly cares about every last detail and we really appreciated it all! This cabin is fully loaded which is why we chose it. We knew if the weather was bad or if we were too tired to take an excursion there would be plenty to do onsite. There would be no, "I'm bored!" coming from any of the children in this group. Our group ranged from age 9 to 70.
We found a cabin diary in the living room and noticed there was a 70th birthday surprise just before ours. What are the chances in that?!
Having 4 floors was so fun. We limited the elevator use mainly to the first and the last day so it was a bit of a workout if you forgot something on another floor but it helped prepare us for the hikes so it was great. The kitchen was wonderful for a group as large as ours.It can be a bit daunting with a group of 19 but we used the rule as if we were at someones home. Show respect for the wonderfully cared for property and leave it in as good as or better condition then we arrived.
We ended up going to Laurel falls. We saw a mama bear and her babies. Park rangers were on the trail so we were comforted by that. It was a pleasant and unexpected surprise.
We also went to the Forbidden Caverns. It was an amazing experience and very safe. After going to Laurel Falls this walk was a breeze. The lady running the place was very friendly. She loved hearing about our surprise for our mom and we purchased many souvenirs. It's a must see!
On our last night we compiled all of our favorite photos we took for a surprise slide show for our mom to recap our wonderful time there. Thanks to Earl this was extremely easy with the wonderful setup in the movie theater.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful option for our surprise. We enjoyed ourselves immensely! We will cherish the memories for a long time and can't wait to return for another special occassion!

My husband and I have 5 children between us. They in turn gave us 6 grandchildren. We all made it, including the husbands and wives, to the Elegant Elk. What a trip! The house was fantastic! Truely a treasure! It was so spacious that we had plenty of room, and were not triping over each other. We used every room in the house! The grandkids loved the movie theatre and game room! The older set of children loved the hot tub and various decks. We went hiking every day, did some shopping, and even did some ziplining! For the first time ever, I did not want to come home! I can't forget to mention that Patti was superb to work with, and while we were there my husband talked to Earl twice. Once as simple as how do you turn on the TV! The second time my husband hung up and said, "What a nice guy!" Thank you for sharing your home...I am so thankful that I stumbled accross it on the internet. I am already recommending it to my friends who are looking for a place to spend a family reunion!
A perfect family reunion week!

We arrived on June 10, all 12 of us...four grandchildren, and 8 adults. Pre-trip communication was perfection. There is no check-in, just go to the house. The mountain weather is sooo pleasant, and the view from the decks is superb. The house was clean, huge, the beds were comfy, and the kitchen was just right for cooking for a crowd. The management and owner did a great job keeping on top of things all week long, and we will certainly be back! One daughter-in-law said "We need two more days. There was just so much to do that we never had the time to really lay around and enjoy the Elegant Elk just for itself." And everything in the house works flawlessly!
Best vacation ever!

We would like to thank the Martin Family for a vacation we will never forget, we had 14 people ages 9 through 78 and the cabin was absolutly perfect, the view were spectacular and we always had something to do. We hope to make this a regular annual trip. Thanks again for a weeks vacation that will be something we talk about for a lifetime.
