This property is amazing. The second we arrived it felt just like home. The cabin is tucked away from everything, yet close to attractions and lots of fun things to do with the family. My husband and I stayed here for a weeks vacation with our two sons. The kitchen had everything that we needed to prepare meals and even spent a few nights grilling out on the porch. My kids loved the bunk beds and the video games. The cabin was spotless when we arrived and it showed that it was prepared for us to enjoy our time there. We loved listening to the rushing stream from the porch while watching chipmunks, ground hogs and birds. We even saw some elk at the bottom of the private drive. We ventured out to many locations around the area including Cherokee and Waterrock Knob and all were easy access. I will say that the private drive is a little scary to we "flatlanders". But after two trips up and down the steep climb in the car, we all realized that it was nothing to worry about and handled it like we had been there all along. We even spent some time walking up and down the drive to look at the nearby stream. The property owner was quick to respond to all of my emails and even a quick text when I asked a question about something at the cabin. I would highly recommend this rental. My family and I will always remember the time we spent there relaxing and enjoying a break from the sweltering heat and humidity of summer in FL.
This is the second time my wife & I have rented this cabin, & are already thinking about renting again the end of April or 1st part of May-gotta decide!!! We stayed from September 30th thru Oct 7th 2017 & had the most fun & relaxing time in our much needed getaway from working & the everyday hustle & bustle of work!!! First of all the cabin is so inviting & truly so comfy - cozy -& inviting & clean--we will never consider ever staying anywhere else except here!!! We love Maggie Valley where it is located---All the food -restaurants & nearby attractions are nearby & anything you could ask or hope for!!! Everytime we go the Big Elk are waiting there to greet us & we look forward to our daily trips up to the Masonite Marker to see the majestic & awesome view of these beautiful animals-not to mention they are also on our road leading up to our cabin-It is a beautiful 2 bedroom-2 bath fully furnished with all the comforts of your own home. It even has a hot tub after a really nice day of hanging out & sightseeing--& a beautiful outside firepit on the side of the mountain & inside firepit!!! We love going into Cades Cove & Cataloochee, just a short drive away & Gatlingburg & Cherokee just a short drive -- All I can say, is it the most special place that we have found & we look forward to going again--- you will not find a better or more relaxing place anywhere!!!! Thank you our special friends, Jenn & Billy as always for sharing your lovely places & giving us many more special memories to ad to our 43 years of marriage---Mac & Cindy
Elk Crossing cabin was a absolutely perfect. Very clean and had all the amenities of home. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and taking in the view of the mountains. Very short drive to the heart of Maggie Valley. We can't wait to book a trip back to Elk Crossing.
The cabin was wonderful. I paid a $200 deposit and only got $150 back. According to the owner the toilet seat was broken in the master bath, a corona bottle with cigarette butts was left on the back porch and cigarette butts and a piece of plastic was in the fire pit. I admitted that our daughter had left the bottle on the back porch and had thrown butts into the fire pit.After the owner and I got done bickering back and forth she made the comment that she didn't believe me... I ask you why would a person admit to doing two out of three if they're lying.... We have been renting vacation homes for 20yrs plus and have never had a problem. There isn't anything in the contract about not putting butts in the fire pit. Plus I swept all the floors and the porch , washed all the dishes and put them up, cleaned all the countertops,did all the laundry except sheets which we were instructed not to do... I bet their cleaning crew didn't tell them about all the work I saved them from having to do!!!
We had a wonderful time at Elk Crossing. Jen and Billy, the owners were wonderful. We planned many activities during the day and it was always nice to get back "home" to the cabin for a relaxing evening. The hot tub was an added bonus! The best part of all was seeing the wildlife...and we did see the elk!
