Overall we enjoyed the cabin and our stay. The only downside to the entire experience was the size of the actual living area. There wasn't enough seating for our party of 7 adults. (Minor issue) The cabin was beautiful and well kept. The location is very convenient whether going to Gatlinburg or hiking. We would have preferred to have a larger TV to watch the football game but once again a minor issue.

The Hillside cabin is beautiful and location was great. Few areas for improvement: sauna was a huge attraction but did not work; queen double lower bunk mattress was flipped over had to place couch cushions on top in order to sleep on mattress. Did not turn mattress over fearful of what might be on the other side. Much difficulty getting theater working. We were grateful we had high tech family members present.

Only problem for me was the gravel driveway going up hill. Other than that everything was great.

Cabin was nice, But it needs new upholstery, bedding, and carpet. The carpet in the bedroom next to the kitchen on the second floor smells like urine.

They change my reservations to another cabin two days before my check in date the replacement cabin was not great like that one we booked out

We enjoyed our stay at Hilltop Hideaway despite a few issues. The cabin was clean and nicely decorated, but we did have to call for light bulbs upon arrival, and then the shower on the third floor leaked water into the second floor bathroom which meant that we couldn't use the shower in that bathroom during our stay. Kind of a bummer.
Otherwise the cabin is very nice and has a lovely view of the mountains.

House was clean and beautiful. Our Overall experience was really nice.
There is not a lot of insulation and can hear almost everything from 2nd to 3rd story. The upstairs bedroom king bed is squeaky and so is the floor. The upstairs tub was leaking down into the 2nd floor bathroom but they came and re-caulked it.

Enjoyed time in smoky mountains. Quiet location away from hustle & bustle loved the 3 level cabin. Lots of space for family fun. Bring DVDs for movie theatre. Very nice cabin up on a hill some light bulbs were out parts of kitchen floor squeaked & appeared sticky. Anything you forget can get at food city 10 minutes into town

Had me and my extended family in one cabin. 8 of us in total. 2 little kids and 6 adults. Had no problem getting rest. There was plenty of room and beds for everyone. Super comfortable and the view was amazing.

I have to be honest the pictures on the web site and the actually resort omg it is ten times better in reality, super clean and just beautiful. only complaint i have was that the road was not paved but the place itself beautiful view of the mountains. it gave my grown children time to relax hike and reconnect.the resort staff stay in contact with you for all your needs and return your phone call immediately. loved it.

Important note: there are no hairdryers supplied. We found using Google Maps and GPS points 35-45-33N 83-27-12W was the only accurate way to get to house (Waze did not get to correct house).
We have rented houses from Maine to Caribbean and everywhere in between. The pictures were relatively accurate; however, they missed the signs throughout the house reminding you if you broke or damaged an item, the price you will be charged is marked with the signs. I have never felt so uncomfortable in a house.
Furniture was ok - our comforter had some stains & wear. Check out the excessive caulk job at the tubs.
We visited the house with our 2 adult children and their husbands. Cooking was difficult at best due to the poor quality and quantity of the cookware, silverware, utensils. The appliances, while stainless finish, were all entry level builder grade.
Basically, for about $500 they could have proper kitchen and other amenities that you would expect to be included at this price point. If you are driving - bring your own supplies.
We did not use the hot tub, sauna, or the media room as there were so many posted prices of what damaging different things would cost if we did use it and something broke (a $30 DVD cost $250 to replace - really?) The seats costs $950 (think basic movie theater seats).
Towels were another treat - think high school gym class or maybe Motel 6 – but cheaper.
Getting to the property was interesting, the house sits on a hill, and the driveway is loose gravel with ruts. The next door neighbors Chevy SUV could not get up drive. We ended up leaving one car at bottom of drive too.
Bottom line : If you don’t mind the constant reminder of signs, and plan on eating out, this is a decent house / cabin that will work for up to 6 people (one bunk bed set is in lower level); this house is fully functional, decent location to hiking / town / other attractions. Note: we have no idea who installed the signs - the re

We loved our stay at elk springs. It was absolutely peaceful and relaxing. Our kids had so much fun.

I have been coming to vacation in the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area on a regular basis for the past ten years, and I have to say that this experience has been, by far, the worst. The driveway to our cabin was gravel that had not been packed down, which no one bothered to mention. This made getting to our cabin extremely difficult. The next morning came with a leak from the upstairs bathroom into the main level bathroom, which almost caused my 87 year old grandfather to slip and fall. That night came with me discovering stains on our king sized comforter (which looked suspiciously like blood), and maintenance bringing us a 2nd comforter, which was a queen and also dirty, and a 3rd comforter, which was still a queen. All of this occurred around 10:30 at night, when I would have much rather been sleeping. The towels were dingy looking, and like sandpaper, the rain showers over the jacuzzi tubs were completely ridiculous and not practical at all, the dresser in the upstairs master is in horrible shape (I was scared to touch it for fear of it falling apart), and the WiFi was a cruel joke. When I spoke with a woman at the management company our second night, in reference to our comforter issue, I was very clear with her about all of the inconveniences we had experienced. I never received any sort of communication from management asking about our experience. The whole situation left the impression of complete indifference. There will never be a circumstance where I will use this management company again, and I would certainly never recommend them to anyone.

I honestly didn't know that I had that Rustic Girl inside of me, but once I arrived here, she emerged... This place was awesome. All of the amenities were fully functional. This place made me not want to leave. It has been put in place that we will be returning in January 2018.

Gorgeous views, clean and well maintained, very close to the attractions,easy check in and check out process.I would recommend this place to everyone who either wants to stay and relax on the porch or go out and explore beautiful mountains.

We loved staying at this cabin. It was very clean and the family loved using the theatre room, pool table, hot tub and sauna. It was our mini spa! Would definitely stay here again. The only issue we had (and it wasn't really an issue) was the pilot light would not stay lit on the fireplace so we didn't get to use it.

The cabin was quite comfortable for us with 3 kids in tow. It was convenient to Gatlinburg and in a quiet 'neighborhood' of other cabins. There were a few things that we think needed to be addressed in order to make it a more enjoyable stay. Our fireplace would not stay lighted. Apparently the previous guest had issues as well. Someone came to repair it but the problem continued. (Contacting the rental company involved a bit of time on hold or leaving messages). While the media room is a great idea and a favorite area for our kids, it only works if you bring your own dvds or make a run to RedBox. At the very least have the ability to watch TV on the projection screen or movies on hand. Or possibly inputs on for the many devices people have now like Apple TV, fire stick, etc... we would consider staying her again with a few improvements.

The cabin was amazingly beautiful. The view as well. We did have a few minor issues that were dealt with ASAP through a cabin visit and phone conversation. The cabin was spacious and clean.

An awesome cabin in the smoky mountains with everything for the family to relax, if I'm ever back will definitely go there again!!!!

The cabin was located at a great location to get away from all of the crowds witch was wonderful after a long day. It was centeraly located near grocery store, shops, gas station, restaurants, and just a few short miles to down town.
Dan C. October 12, 2017
Just a few comments, a dozen wine glasses no corkscrew.
The mainfloor toliet needs repair, continues to run.
We had an amazing time in the Gatlinburg area and at the end of the long day it was nice to get out of the crowds and relax in a quiet space.
Bob B. September 16, 2017
We choose this cabin, and paid a premium, for the media room. We wanted to watch football games during the weekend and this room looks great on the website. What they don't tell you is it ONLY PLAYS DVDs. No cable, no streaming, nothing but DVDs. We were very disappointed. Also, the floors on the middle and top floors are very load. They squeak with every step. Once anyone is up, it's hard to stay asleep.
Tracy B. November 16, 2017
From checking in to checking out, we loved our stay. The cabin was everything you see in the pictures. So quiet and peaceful. Our kids cried when we had to leave. Will definitely stay here again!

Great Place and location!
Jennifer K. April 28, 2015
We travelled to Gatlinburg for a long weekend, and had a great time! Only problem was we couldn't stay longer! The cabin was very nice. It appeared to be one of the more secluded cabins (off to the side a bit more than some of the others) which we enjoyed. The cabin was clean and appeared to be well maintained. A short drive to downtown Gatlinburg, which was nice! The Company even called over the weekend to make sure we were enjoying our stay and everything met our expectations. Overall, great experience, and we will definitely go back!
Nicole J. March 15, 2015
The cabin was very nice, a little hard to get to in the snow. Layout was good, kids room was on the first floor which was a bit colder than the rest of the house. Only complaints were the hot tub was not cleaned off and we had to clear off the snow to get in, and the movie room was not the same one pictured. Enjoyed the cabin, the pool table, the grill, hot tub was awesome once we got in it. All around great stay. Sound travels extremely well in this cabin though! Thin walls!

We stayed 4 nights at the lovely Hilltop Hideaway with our 2 children and their 2 friends. Such a great experience. Everything was spotless and in great condition...true cabin luxury! Just a couple of things to note for future guests. 1. The photo online shows 6 chairs in the media room but there were only 5. We had 6 guests total so it would have been nice to have a chair for each person to enjoy our nightly movies. I called to request an additional chair but one was never delivered. We made it work though...just be aware if this is important to you. 2. It's a true cabin and the walls (or floors rather) are very creaky so you can definitely hear others walking above you. It didn't bother us at all but just make note if this is important to you. We had an amazing time and would book with Elk Springs Lodge again in a heartbeat. Location was excellent to all Gatlinburg of both worlds, nice quiet relaxation at the cabin and all tourist activities you could want just a short 10 minute drive away. Loved that the Food City is so close too!! Made for easy grocery shopping and preparing meals in the cabin!

Seven of us spent a week at Hilltop Hideaway and had an amazing time. The amenities of the house added to our mountain experience. The view was amazing and the staff couldn't be more helpful. We had some issues with bugs and an exterminator was sent out that same day. Our only complaints - and they are minor- are that we could have used more towels and additional paper towel and dishwasher detergent. This was the only rental property we've stayed at that was lacking both. In addition to needing some new carpet, the house was great.

On a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains, we stayed at Elks Springs Resort's Hilltop Hideaway cabin. Their warning as you entered the resort: "You may not want to leave!" Truer words were never spoken. My first impression was that the cabin was very clean. My family of six stayed in this 10-person cabin. We had plenty of room. It had three floors and provided an excellent view of the Smokies, especially from the third floor. This would be a big plus during the seasons when there is less foliage on the trees. All the starter amenities Elks Springs promised were there. This conveniently got us through the first day as we got settled. I liked the fact, too, that it was away from the city, that it gave us that cabin feel throughout our stay. Since we are big on arts and crafts I appreciated the cabin being right in the middle of the Arts and Crafts community. On our first day there, the management gave us a courtesy call to assure that everything was fine. After spending our days taking in the Smokies, we looked forward to coming back and doing some relaxing. This was the perfect place to do it. We took advantage of the hot tub, home theater room, sauna, and pool table. Everything satisfied our needs although the home theater system may need a little upgrade to allow something more than just showing movies. All in all, I was very pleased with our cabin. Kudos to Elk Springs for providing an excellent place to stay. Would I recommend this property to a friend or relative? Absolutely!
Nicholas C. October 21, 2015
We had a total of 4 adults and 3 kids staying at the Hilltop Hideaway. The kids loved the bunk beds and movie room. The location is excellent and convenient to Gatlinburg with a grocery store very close to the cabin. We will definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Only thing I would add is more towel pegs in the bathrooms. One isn't enough. Check in was so convenient, great cabin.

Excellent week in a great vacation house. Elk Springs is a nice cabin-only resort, house didn't give us the feeling like we were in someone's house and afraid to touch anything, yet well stocked. Great customer service beginning with a call to check in with us shortly after arriving. We highly recommend Elk Springs for a family vacation. Next door to Gatlinburg and Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

The cabin has a beautiful view in a perfect location and lived up to the pictures!!! Can't wait to go back.
Crisden M. November 17, 2015
Hi we love the cabins but there is definitely a lack of things in the kitchen such as a kettle! There is only one pot and when we used the BBQ there is nothing to clean it with! The down stairs carpet is ripped to pieces near the sauna! It needs some desperate renos for sure. Otherwise we love the location
Anonymous November 3, 2015
Cabin was super clean and features were plenty like home theatre, hot spa, dry Sona room, pool table, large bunk bed, etc. We enjoyed our stay and kids had real fun. Location was very close to art and craft community and 15 min away from downtown in secluded area. We knew what we signed up when we chose in Elk resort community. If you are looking for an adventurous cabin stay with no cabin around you with fantastic mountain view, look elsewhere not here.
Susan M. November 8, 2015
Hilltop Hideaway was everything we visualized and more. The location is perfect for avoiding the traffic in Gatlinburg. There are other cabins in this area, but plenty of space in between each one on the hill. Everyone had their own space and then some. The only complaint we had is that we didn't spend enough time at the cabin. We were out every day horse back riding, hiking, or shopping. We plan to return and never leave the cabin.

The cabin was really nice. Great location. It was clean for the most part. Loved having a washer and dryer. Cons: The dishwasher door was broken so loading the dishwasher was a pain. The jacuzzi was really nice but the water got cloudy by the 3rd day. I think it needed to get shocked. I think it would be nice if a little booster/high chair was available for families with little ones.

Very clean, awesome customer service, and enjoyed every moment! Cant wait to come back!!! 5 stars all the way!!!

3 couples, from our church, enjoyed marriage dvds, fun, and fellowship. The home theater room was awesome, and the hot tub was wonderful with a view of Mount LeConte. We enjoyed the pool table, and the open kitchen, dining, and living space was a perfect place to cook, play games, and sit by the fire. Also, the customer service was better than any place I have stayed before. We had two problems that were quickly taken care of by the maintenance staff too.

Nothing worked as it should from the front door that was like a rocket science project to lock to the Home theater room that played movies with no sound (what was the point???). The "customer service reps" were 100% no help 100% of the time (cannot stress that enough), from the beginning of the process they were unpleasant and unnecessarily difficult. The location was miserable from being up a gravel hill that was a nightmare to drive up in the pouring rain to being located in a desolate place where all the roads leading back to civilization were treacherous to drive-- and in all those nonsensical emails mgmt sent, not one mention of this, well, that's an imp. thing to mention!! The noisy neighbors with their motorcycle gang and dogs were ridiculous and it sure didn't help to have no drapes/curtains in the livingroom, never heard of such. The cleaning people cleaned minimally, the linen was old and full of lint, the plates and glassware were not clean and they had the nerve to leave an envelope for a tip as if enough wasn't paid already for this miserable experience. So, no, I would not recommend this place to anyone.
