We like the cabin and view however, this is more of a 4 bedroom cabin since the bunk beds are in a less desirable setting...would also be nicer cabin if the two upper bedrooms did not have to walk out of their rooms for a shared bathroom. I would recommend this cabin for 4 adult couples but hard to see how it could accommodate more than 2 kids.

The cabin was great, the view was amazing! Everyone had an amazing time there was more than enough room for everyone. All the extras work great, the TVs the games the washer and dryer. This is one vacation I will definitely do again.

We stayed at the Vista Lodge Cabin. Our overall experience was a good. The house and scenic views were beautiful. There were some minor maintenance issues but nothing that ruined our experience. We chose to report them at the end of our stay. The resort was apologetic and said they would address the issues immediately.

Everything was over and beyond what we expected. There was something to do for all ages. We will return very soon.

Nice view. Relaxing atmosphere. It was a good location to take our 78 year old mother and 2 teenagers. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, the view, use of the grill and the kitchen.

We went to the National Park for the Cades Cove loop (about 30 min away) and the muscle car museum (also about 30 min away).

Areas for improvement include: There was some trash and cigarette butts (a lot of cigarette butts) in front of the cabin, a couple of burnt out light bulbs, and the GFCI tripped in the master bathroom due to the blender in the kitchen. Also, the arcade game had loss some joystick functions.

Elk Springs has wonderful rentals. Everything was wonderful.

Overall our weekend stay with family was wonderful. However we were not impressed with this cabin. Location wise it was beautiful. The views were breathtaking. The cabin itself wasn't cleaned very well. Lots of dust and dirt behind the bathroom doors. Large stain on main level bedroom carpet. The drain in the bathroom sink up stairs was clogged and drained very slowly. Our first night there the A/C unit stopped working on the main level. We didn't think of contacting anyone at first because we thought maybe it was set on a certain temperature and kicked off when that temperature was reached, but throughout our second day it never would come back on. Finally we called to have someone from maintenance come check it out. Two hours later he arrived to find out the water level on the inside unit had gotten too high and needed to be drained. He wasn't the friendliest person either. Almost like it was a bother for him to be there. The kitchen refrigerator was set on the lowest temperature but our drinks and food stayed fairly warm. We asked the maintenance guy about this as well and he stated that because we put so much food and drinks in at one time it took it longer to cool them down. He said this even after we told him we put them in the night before so it had been almost 24 hours since they had been placed in there. Overall, it was more of the little things that made us not enjoy this cabin.

Let me say first the view was great. The cabin furnishings had some wear (bedding, mattress, sheets all needed replaced). Mis-matched plates, silverware and most of what we cooked stuck to the skillets. But everything was very clean. Pretty long drive to Gatlinburg (40 minutes). All in all, not the best cabin I've stayed in, not the worst either. Also wish all the game stuff was on the same level. And need a mirror in one of the bathrooms.

Enjoyed the cabin but the drive to it was not pleasant..I will be renting cabins on the actual Elk Springs Resort site from now on. If you like seclusion and view then get this cabin :)

The Cabin is amazing. Very spacious and accomodating.

The stay was good. My family had a great stay, however, they tried to have a movie night on their last night of stay and the screen would not load.

We had a great time and the cabin was beautiful! The DVD players need to be updated because we brought movies which were blu-ray so we could not play them. Also a TV in a bedroom on the main floor needs to be updated because the picture was very dark. Overall we had a great experience!

Pictures don't show how beautiful this cabin really is. We enjoyed our stay and are already looking to book this cabin again next year

Rental process was fast and easy. Cabin was very clean and comfortable. Extremely spacious. Enjoyed the use of pool table and other games provided. The theater room was impressive. We rented a DVD to watch a movie and it was a wonderful experience. It would have been nice to have DVD’s in the cabin tho.
Hot tub was nice. Ping pong table was a lot of fun. Lots of positives about this cabin but the most beautiful and enjoyable thing was the AMAZING VIEW!!!

Generally speaking our stay was OK. It was a beautiful cabin, and was clean. There were areas for improvement:
1. TV's in living room and media room didn't work at all and we needed to call maintenance. Maintenance fixed media room by rewiring connections. He was not able to fix living room and said he would need to call for service on Monday. After he left we exchanged the cable box in the living room with one in the bedroom and that fixed it.
2. Some of the pillows were king size but were covered with regular sized pillow cases (gross).
3. Bedspreads probably never get cleaned, so why not offer clean blankets so the bedspreads aren't needed for warmth and can be removed at bedtime.
4. Media room couch smelled bad - need some fabreze.
5. Bedrooms upstairs (game room) did not have mirrors so ladies could do makeup. Easy to fix.
6. I understand the plastic covers on the beds but they were noisy, wrinkly, hot and uncomfortable.
7. Not enough pots and pans for large group.
8. Some burnt out light bulbs. Had to cannibalize bulbs from lights we didn't need to lights we did need.
9. Definitely could use a mid-week garbage pickup. By end of week we had to just stuff the bags in the bear proof container.
Again, we had a good stay, but it could have been great if these few easy to fix things were taken care of.

Cabin was beautiful, spotless as usual. The view was amazing. Cabin was in a community, I would have rather had one more secluded. Elk Springs is a wonderful place to rent from. Will definitely be renting from them again.

I can't express how much my family and I enjoyed staying in Vista Lodge. The view is amazing and the beautiful/peaceful area made it all the best.

We had everything we needed in the cabin. We enjoyed each others company and the kids loved the game room and movie room.

We will be staying here again for sure! I highly recommend!

Our stay was great too short I would say the cabin was everything we expected to be.

The view is even more beautiful than shown in the pictures. The Cabin was CLEAN & VERY spacious. The amenities listed by Elk Resort were accurate & all were in good working order. The cabin can afford a few upgrades especially in the kitchen area: Stove/oven, cabinets/drawers, fridge-while all were usable, they were quite "dated". The outdoor furniture is worn & should be replaced as well. We loved that this cabin is not located in the mist of all the action. It's located up in the mountains, in a "neighborhood" of cabins that are quite close, but neighbors were not an issue & it was surprisingly quiet. The bedrooms were comfortable & nicely decorated. The Jacuzzi tubs were amazing after a days play! The hot tub made for excellent relaxation, however, the hot tub is NOT located under the covered portion of the deck. While this cabin is located in The Preserve Resort, there is no pool access. We cherished our stay & would certainly stay again!

The Vista Lodge was lovely and suited our needs. We will be back again. :-)

Overall the weekend was wonderful! The two things that would have made it even better are 1) a better equipped kitchen - no cookie sheets or cheese graters, and the knives and can opener were pitiful! 2) Knowing that the cabin was in a "neighborhood."

This home is gorgeous! Didn't want to leave! Will be going back again.
Carissa G. October 12, 2016
The cabin was gorgeous as was the view. As soon as we arrived we wished we would have booked for the 5 night instead of just two.

Be sure to bring your own kitchen essentials if you plan on cooking...pans and such are provided but nothing else.
I would also recommend bringing your own blankets as some were not the freshest looking.

Overall a great stay, would come again
