Fabulous cabin and spotless! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

Construction on new cabin next door. Builders noisy early in the morning. Workers present - no privacy on deck, not much of a view. Several lights burnt out in bedroom.

Totally awesome. Really enjoyed the layout and the fireplace. Would have like to try the 18’ shower but it was too cold to use.
Kevin R. November 6, 2018
I wish the company was transparent and let guests know that there was construction taking place and cabins were being built on the next lot (possibly 20 yards away). I expected some piece and quiet ; however, woke up the first morning to the sound of hammers and circular saws. We brought steaks to grill; however, grill didn’t work. The cabins are not secluded, - misleading from pictures in web. Overall- horrible experience. After complaining and only getting a $100 credit - I plan to start a social media campaign to make sure everyone is aware of these issues and to avoid this place.

Hello, this is the 4th or 5th time that we have stayed at Elk Springs Resort. The past has always been wonderful. Our cabin location this time was on the far side of several cabins being built. Each time we entered or left we had to work our way past construction vehicles and materials, sometimes having to wait to get past vehicles parked in the road. The construction noise made it hard to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the mountains if we were outside of the cabin. There was a trailer parked close to our cabin, so between the parked cars at the cabin beside us and the trailer, the only place we could park was on a semi-steep hill right in front of our cabin.
I realize that construction has to be done, but it would have been helpful if the property management would have warned us ahead of time so we could have selected another cabin or location. We come to the mountains for peace and quiet with a relaxing atmosphere. Unfortunately we did not get that this time.

eEverything was perfect. The cabin and the location. It was clean and I have no complaints. Only issue we had was finding the place. We got lost on the way trying to follow the directions they provided. If you have problems with directions I would use your gps.

The rental company was very easy to work with . We had no problems at the cabin and it was very nice and clean. The location was great for everything we did in Gatlinburg and around the National Park. It's a nice quiet location, but not mountain views.

Pool table worn and rug and carpet, Washer dryer made awful sounds ,

Overall it is a great cabin. Love the quiet location, beautiful windows, nice hot tub, and spacious layout. our family enjoyed the pool and foosball tables a lot.
Only thing not so great is the TV stand at 2nd bedroom is a potential safety concern. The height of the small wood stand is right at the height of my face/eye level, and it is right at the way to the door. Especially dangerous during the night if you wake up and go to restroom.

It was amazing
Anonymous August 10, 2017
Wonderful location, extremely quiet (even though there are other cabins pretty close, and very nice cabin and amenities. We had a very small issue and they came out to fix it within the hour of being reported and were great! Only complaints would be they need to provide more towels depending on family size, and a bit of cleaning under the beds and behind nightstands is needed.
Caroline H. September 16, 2018
Nice location. The hot tub, billiard table and fussball table were great. Plenty of clean towels. Flat pillows on the queen bed and the pillows smelt like sweat. I’m not sure if the comforters on the beds had been washed recently. Enough room for 6 to sleep but only 5 dinner plates and 3 wine glasses. Not one coat hanger so bring your own. Uncomfortable beds. Lots of signs with rules and warnings that make it quite a negative atmosphere.
Ravonda S. April 10, 2018
From the time we step in we was in Awe. It was lovely. Plan to return soon. Even though we was close to other cabins it was still peaceful. Not far from the activities and stores. The kids enjoyed Gatling Escape Games. You will have to grab your own coffee for the coffee lovers. We didn’t get to enjoy the hot tub due to the weather but the rain shower and jacuzzi heart shape tub was on point. The snow was such a delightful sight.

Problems with the dish washer and dryer. Maintenance rep was there very soon after report to repair dishwasher but was unable to repair noisy dryer, Good stay and location.

Perfect for my family, great location, easy access to downtown!
Anonymous August 28, 2017
Four of us stayed in Spur of the Moment. Cabin was nicely decorated and conveniently located to town and the park. Customer service people are great to work with! Downside would be if you are planning on staying for a week, you need to pack EVERYTHING...salt, pepper, spices, cooking spray, dish soap, napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry det..... Cabin comes with pots, pans, dishes, bedding and towels, and that's it! I think we went to the store EVERYDAY because we needed something. Luckily it is fairly close! We enjoyed the hot tub and pool table, and washer and dryer were a plus too! We drove around the resort, and there are many other very nice cabins at this resort too! I would definitely stay again, but I think for the money, additional daily items could be included.
James P. July 29, 2017
From the amazing drive through back roads up a mountain side, to walking in the front door, I was amazed. It only got better. Not only is this completely charming, it's fully modern. And the pictures don't really do it justice. Everything was in good condition. Everything worked. Everything was perfect. So not only is there an amazing jacuzzi in the master bedroom, there's a giant, no really, giant rain shower in there as well. It must be 20 feet tall. And fantastic water pressure. I'm not only going to stay here again, I want to try out the other cabins as well. Elk Springs won a customer for life.

Great location! Beds were comfy except for hide-a-bed. Glad we brought our air mattress. Sleeping arrangements best for 4 people. Could use more seating in living room. Needs coat rack or wall hooks at front door. Dishwasher didn't work.
Brittney B. May 30, 2018
Upon arrival we found a dishwasher full of old, smelly dirty water and no dishes. We called and put a request into maintenance and they sent someone over to look at it. They did spend 2 hours working on it and were unable to fix it. At our request he did leave and get a shop vac to drain the water. Our towels were used to clean up the mess without being asked. We were on vacation and I had to wash every dish multiple times a day. No consideration was given to provide us with a drying rack or any type of inconvenience refund since they did not notify us a head a time of the problem. We were promised a follow up call in 24 hours and have yet to receive one.

Cabin was beautiful and the description was exactly as it appears in the pictures, inside property was clean and well maintained the only downside was the outside wasnt appeasing at all it definitely need some landscaping and the 18 foot rain shower was nice but to dark. We enjoyed Soul of Motown, Dixie Stampede dinner shows and The Island was nice to visit and downtown Gatlinburg was a nice area to visit..
Anonymous December 3, 2017
Amazing. We enjoyed the fall foliage, scenic roadway to the cabin, and the peace and quiet very much.
Keep in mind that as a log cabin, it does creak and make noises, like when the heat would kick on and the wooden walls settled. But everything was as good as I could have expected.
Anonymous January 10, 2018
The master bedroom sheets were dirty, it appeared they had not been changed, and although housekeeping came the next morning, management refused to give us a partial refund for that first night's stay.
Terrika G. December 29, 2017
The house was beautiful and very clean. Not as private as what I thought it would be. There are many other cabins very close to the one we stayed in. The kids enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and huge shower and tub. It was a really neat cabin. The hot tub was the perfect temperature. We couldn't get the downstairs fire place to turn on so it was a bit cold down there. Overall I was honestly very happy with the cabin and the beds were beyond comfortable. Cabin is not far from town either. Glad we made the choice to stay in the spur of the moment cabin.

1. The living room TV was above the fireplace and uncomfortable to watch 2. The 2nd bedroom TV was on a shelf that was at eye level where you could hit your head 3. The shower entry was broken and a tripping hazard while some of the shower lites didn't work 4. The fireplace in the master bedroom didn't provide heat 5.The master bed frame was broken, missing piece and loose 6. The kitchen counter top was concave and couldn't be used. 7. We had too call and have a ripped/damaged carpet repaired for the tripping hazard. Pictures are available.

The cabin was clean and ready when they said it would be. The contact person was very nice and checked to see if everything was okay once we arrived. The only downfalls were the dishwasher did not work well, we ended up hand washing. Also the bed in the master bedroom was pretty uncomfortable, the one in the second bedroom was fine. Overall our stay was great. Our kids enjoyed the games, the hot tub was clean, and there was information all around the cabin that helped you know how to properly use and care for everything.

The property was very nice and in a wonderful location. It was easy to get to. There were only a couple of things that could of been better. The cabin was hard to find. We were given the wrong address on the paperwork that was sent to us prior to arrival. The name and description to get there were correct but the incorrect address made it hard to determine if we were in the right location. Secondly I realize it's in the mountains and rodents tend to get in but there were a lot of rodent feces on all the dished in the lower cabinets as well as the floor. At night you could hear the mice running around. Since we cooked quite a bit while we were there it made it a bit uncomfortable knowing that mice had been running around all night. We had to constantly be washing everything. Overall however, I would say that the trip was great and the views amazing. The cabin was very nice and as described.

Cabin was clean and no dust which was great.
Pictures from website was a true reflection of the cabin.
Well appointed cabin nothing was missing and very
Close to downtown.
A few things that can be improved is better quality linen.
Bedspread in guest room did not seem very clean or
Sheets. Towels very thin.
Also major construction on the same street as spur of the moment and next door.

I loved the cabin & the location was excellent. I had really been worried about that but it was pretty easy to get there. Check out was a little tricky because my phone had no service so I didn't get the check out instructions until I was already home
Ellen L M. April 2, 2018
We stayed for three nights at Spur of the Moment and couldn't have been happier there! The layout was perfect for my family (2 adults/2 children), and the furnishings were top-notch. The house was spotless and well appointed with everything you need to feel like you're at home. I loved that the location within the resort was a little off the beaten path--we were higher up, which made us feel like there were few people around us. Overall, we loved our stay and highly recommend it!
Gine H. February 21, 2016
This was was EXACTLY as pictured. I rented the space for a Girls' Getaway with 5 friends and it was perfect!!! We did a lot of cooking and drinking and they had everything we needed to get the job done...plates, pots, wine glasses, etc. I received a phone call each day from one of the staff members to see if we needed anything. The Hot tub plus that sensational view was the icing on the cake. I will DEFINITELY be planning another trip there in the near future!!!
Brooke P. March 16, 2016
Loved the Shower in the Master bedroom. The description showed 2 king size beds, however only one was a king. Found a used cig in one of the trash cans in the bathroom- luckily the baby didn't find it. Other than that I have no issues
Anonymous November 2, 2015
The cabin was amazing. Particularly loved the rain shower and it was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. Lovely massive bed in the master suite. Cabin close to Gatlinburg and conveniently there is a Food City a five minute drive away. Only piece of feedback I would add is a small welcome pack of say milk and coffee or would be a nice gesture. Overall a fabulous stay and we truly left our hearts in the mountains.

The entire process, from booking, payment, check in, staying and checking out, was smooth and hassle free. The property was exactly as described. Close enough to everything but far enough away to feel secluded. Any issues were handled VERY quickly and professionally (we had two small maintenance issues while we were there). We will certainly be back - we were planning which cabin we wanted to stay in next time before we had even left!
Elnora L. May 11, 2016
It was a beautiful cabin. Very clean and furnishings made the cabin homey and enjoyable.

Perfect peaceful retreat! Everything was just as described. Customer service from the time of booking our reservation onward was excellent. I wish I could have stayed forever! Will definitely be recommending to others.
Blythe P. June 19, 2016
We were impressed with the quality of the cabin and happy with the location. An easy 10 minutes or so to downtown Gatlinburg. The ownership was happy to please and available for questions. We would stay here again no question.
Julio A. June 2, 2016
My wife and I had higher expectations for the resort. When we reserved the cabin, we specifically requested a cabin with a view or a cabin that was secluded. The cabin did not have a view and was not secluded. We travel to the Smokeys 6-8 times a year. Unless we have no other option, I do not foresee us reserving a cabin at Elks Resort anytime soon.
Helen W. December 3, 2016
We all had a blast. The cabins were wonderful. They were perfect for all the kids to play the games and watch movies. We also rented Eagles Nest.
Joe H. June 22, 2016
Everything was just okay. No working batteries in remotes, dead battery in smoke alarm, only place I've ever stayed that I had to buy my own toilet paper, Foosball table falling apart, bed post loose and falling over, shower turned on and dripped during the night and no working light in hot tub.
Anonymous June 17, 2016
My husband, three children and I stayed for three nights in May 2016. The cabin was exceptionally clean, comfortable and provided everything we needed to cook meals. The cabin is absolutely beautiful. In the evenings it was nice to sit on the deck, or teach our kids to play pool. We will definitely come here again and recommend to our friends.
Natalie R. September 2, 2016
Very nice and clean cabin with plenty of amenities.
Max S. September 16, 2016
Several issues with the cabin. Mostly small problems that did not ruin the experience.
Lights out, dead bugs (including roaches) found inside, tv in the bedroom did not work were just some.

Great location. Only 10 minutes from Gatlinburg but far enough away from the endless traffic. Also, 17 minutes away from Pigeon Forge and Dollyworld. Would stay within the Elk Springs Resort again.
