I really enjoyed my stay here at Hunker Down. The cabin was very clean and feltlike home away from home. The only downfall is that I was expecting to be up in the smokys. However I blam myself for not reading the aamenities in its entitiry. U are litterly sown yonderdeep on the woods. Sceenary ia not good at all. So to sum it up if your looking for mountain views like being in the smokeys this is jot the place. If ur looking for an escape this is just for u.

Loved our stay at hunker down. Location is close enough without be too close. There are close neighbors so if you are looking for solitude this might not be your pick; however it was a quiet area even with the neighbors. Our only complaint was the awful sulfur smell from the water heater when taking a shower.

Loved all of the wood throughout the cabin, and the cute little bears. We enjoyed reading about how the wall panels in the front room created by Mr.Pace had names for them and the bear next to the window showed up. We were thankful it didn't ice over because it would have been difficult getting up and down that hill. Overall, it was a wonderful stay and hope to visit again.
“Great modern cabin - all the features, but quiet and peaceful!”

Forget 'rustic', this cabin, close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Dollywood and the Great Smokey Mountain National Park is modern, inviting, full of charm and very clean. Being from Florida, I was concerned about the roads since I stayed in January. No worries - they are paved, and very convenient to all the sights in the nearby towns.
It was so quiet and relaxing! Again, this was the winter season, but that made the views even better. The cabin layout is ideal; the master bedroom and bath are in a loft, with a large sleeper-sofa in the living room. There are two hot tubs (inside and out), and two baths (upstairs and down). The fireplace worked well, as did the Tv's, DVD player and Wii gaming system.
With all this, we skipped many of our planned day trips and stayed close to the cabin. Walking up the steep hills in the neighborhood was very rewarding. In the daytime the mountain vistas are awesome, and on clear nights you can see the lights from the nearby towns. Since I've stayed in hotels in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge before, we wanted to skip the traffic and tourist traps and relax. This turned out to be a great plan, and you will leave with far less stress than when you arrived!
I are very pleased that you had a great vacation and was able to enjoy the winter environment and the cabin! Please let us know when you would like to come back. We will give you a repeat guest discount! Thanks again, Marian and Mason

“My escape from reality”
Left on 06/28/2011 for a stay in November 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 28, 2011Stayed Nov 2010
Last November, a friend and I escaped from work for a couple of days and stayed at Hunker Down. The cabin was just darling. The living room was warm and cozy, the kitchen had everything we needed for when we were too tired to eat out, and the bed was so comfortable, I slept like a bear. In the mornings, we sat on the porch, reading our favorite novels and enjoying the clean, fresh mountain air. Everything was perfect. I can hardly wait until my next escape. I am definitely going back.
Thank you Liz for the review and very pleased that you enjoyed our cabin as much as we do! Please let us know when are planning to come back up and we will give you a repeat guest discount! Regards, Marian and Mason
