“Worked for Large Family Reunion”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My job every couple years is to secure a place for a large family reunion. We range in age from 5-85, some need handicap accessibility, we want to stay under one roof, oh, and I have a budget to stay within. Terrace Garden met those requirements and we had a wonderful stay over a long weekend.

Pros:
1. Cost: Terrace Garden was built in 1968. Over the years it has been updated and added on to. Since it is not a brand new building, the cost is much less than other large cabins in Gatlinburg.
2. Plenty of sleeping space. We easily slept 32 people. The bunk rooms are very small, but they serve the purpose. I would say 5 of the bedrooms are very nice, the other 9 are fine and functional.
3. Plenty of bathrooms and we never ran out of hot water. Plus there is a full size washer and dryer in one of the rooms, which made it easy to keep up with towels.
4. Heating/air conditioning was very easy to control with three different thermostats. We had no issues with keeping the temperature comfortable throughout the house.

What you need to know before you rent:
1. Property is up a very long, windy road. We have several young adult and elderly drivers that were nervous making the trek into town. We choose to stay more at the cabin because of this. Also, Gatlinburg traffic was extremely heavy. One of us ran to the grocery store 6.5 miles away and it took 45 minutes to get there and 1.5 hours to get back to the cabin.
2. Handicapped bathroom is in the main hallway. This is clearly marked on the floor plan provided by rental company. If you have a person who needs an equipped bathroom, just note they will have to walk from bedroom to get to it. Also, only toilet has bars. Bathtub does not. Those with mobility issues were able to stay in rooms on the main level, which also has the kitchen, dining and living areas. that worked out nicely.
3. Kitchen was fully equipped. We cooked all of our meals there, except for one night when we ordered pizza. Bring paper plates and cups, as there is only one dishwasher. We knew this in advance and were very glad to have planned accordingly.
4. Pool and clubhouses are not near the house. They are 2 miles away. We knew pool was only open in the summer. But were very surprised to find the clubhouse was closed as well, especially since the book in the cabin stated the clubhouse was open through Thanksgiving. Since the cabin didn't have one large gathering space, we were hoping to use the club house.
5. Although this house sits on some acreage, there is no real space for kids to place outside. We filled the drive with cars. The kids have brought games to play, but acreage was to steep and close to roads to safely let them play. We did find a nice park in Gatlinburg.
6. Dining area sits about 14-17 people comfortably. On the two days the weather was nice some eat on different decks that had tables or out front. Our last two days were chilly and we ended up eating more or less in shifts.
7. If your group is one that wakes up and goes to sleep at different times, be aware that the lower level bedrooms toward the front of the house hear every footstep, chair scrape, and toilet flush from upstairs. Also the two rooms closest to the kitchen are not sound proof at all, making it difficult for those folks to sleep when others are awake. If you are a group that is basically on the same schedule this should not be an issue. If you are a group like ours where the elderly liked getting up before 4 in the morning and the young adults/teens went to bed after midnight, it was an issue.

There wasn't one room where we could all gather, which was kind of a bummer. Oh, and we did have a bear climb a tree close to the house one night and paw some of the cars in the driveway. Just added to the adventure.

All that being said, we really did have a wonderful time. I would recommend this cabin to anyone, as long as you have realistic expectations about what you are renting.
