"Everything was as described in the description. The chalet was clean and is well maintained. From the time I booked it, there constant communication from the resort with all the information you would need. A great location and only 10 minutes to everything you would possibly need including some great fun places for the kids. The Aquarium was amazing and we had a great meal at the Alamo Steak House. Can't wait to come back again."

"This is a very nice "cabin" with plenty of room for a large group. Second time we've rented at Elk Springs and the service is very good, with quick response to maintenance. Nice to not feel like you're in Gatlinburg but be minutes away.

Cabin was in generally good condition. Only suggestions would be to better stock the kitchen especially for a large group where we plan to cook quite a bit and add window screens."

"This house was the perfect size for my family of all adults & a 2 year old. It was well equipped with everything a home needs. Plenty of linen & the HVAC system worked wonderful. We loved the fireplace.
There is a view of the mountains that was incredible. The mountain tops had snow on them. Incredible! The bathrooms were the perfect size and cleaned well. The bedrooms were good sizes and the sauna made it extra special.
The cleaning and furniture were very important to me. I didn’t want to work about contamination. There was quite a few ladybugs and dust behind doors & in window seals but we requested a cleaning and they came back to clean.
Overall, it’s a great place including location to stay."

"Cabin is spacious & beautiful. We’ve stayed at Elk Springs yearly sometimes twice a year for the last 10 years. Before our son left to the Army we wanted to find a beautiful cabin at Elk Springs and we did just that. Cabin was immaculately clean. The layout was perfect. My husband, my baby and I stayed on the main floor my two sons and their girlfriends had the upstairs two bedrooms which they had their own bathrooms and my youngest daughter stayed on the lowest floor. Everyone loved it we used the hot tub and the theater room, every night that we were there, the fireplace was beautiful in the living room as was the kitchen we cooked dinner every night. We enjoyed making new memories here before our son left to the army. We are so happy we went with this cabin. Thank you Elk Springs Resort for always helping us make the best memories."

One of the bathrooms had toenails in the stall; the kitchen was not thoroughly clean (we cleaned ourselves & there was accumulated filth); we had a light bulb out in the kitchen area, the rockers & furniture on the veranda were dusty & full of pollen; one of the tubs drained very slowly, our dining area curtains & valence were up backwards & our ice dispenser on the refrigerator did not dispense ice (had to stick your hand in for ice).

"This cabin is very nice. Checks most of the boxes for room, comfort, and entertainment. Wife did complain about lack of certain kitchen utensils, but no deal breakers there. The porch goes most way around the cabin. A gazebo was short distance away. View of tbe mountains was great. We did have a roach turn up on the stairway one day. It was half-dead with legs in the air, but still kicking. So the property must have had been sprayed at some point. The theater room was nice, but someone had disconnected the hdmi cables to the sound bar and the hdmi switch. It took a little time to put them all back, and after that it was nice to sit back, relax, and enjoy watching a movie. Pool table was nice. The masterbath did smell a bit odoriferous, but it looked clean. Personally I wouldn't use the ice and water from the frig' because the ice tasted a bit bitter. So not sure if the water filter in the frig had been changed regularly. So the big things with the cabin are all good with some complaints as well."

"We rented this cabin for a birthday event where our children and grandchildren as well as my mom could get together. The property had everything that we could need, but wasn't as tidy as we would have expected. The windows along the deck on the main floor were very dirty and smeared which diminished to wonderful view. The queen bunk beds downstairs weren't made up, and there were crumbs in the top bunk. The outside grill starter didn't work, and there weren't any matches or lighter to use to light it. Otherwise, it was a wonderful place for the family, and everyone enjoyed the downstairs game room thoroughly. The large bear that kept hanging around was exciting to see, if not a little scary."

"The cabin was nice and big. It could have been a bit cleaner, dead bugs on windowsills, windows not clean, I picked up one of the remotes and it felt sticky. the downstairs frig leaked, one of the toilets upstairs didn't flush well. I have stayed in many properties and condos elswhere and this one needs a bit more help. they provide cheap soap to clean with in shower and wash hands, it doesn't even lather up, no shampoo. not enough towels were provided or trash bags. The one thing I lke when staying in the mountains is sitting in the hot tub or on the porch and looking at the beautiful scenery. This cabin does not have scenery of mountains, oh you can see a small portion through the trees. most of the scenery was trees, I can see those at home. If you want scenery of the blueridge mountains don't stay here. The drive to the property was easy. No big hills to go up, I guess thats why there is no views. I would not stay here again. For the price you pay it should have been much better."

"The cabin was conveniently placed between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg which was a plus. Not sure if I was expecting too much or the cabin itself was a little bit of a let down but it just wasn't what I expected. I could tell it had been cleaned in a hurry and not thoroughly. Some of the showers had hair in them. There was dust everywhere. There was water build-up residue around the rim of the toilet where it hadn't been cleaned properly in a while. Some of the appliances in the kitchen were broken. I fell off one of the stools in the game room because it was broken. There was a millipede infestation on the bottom level. I had to call for a trash pick up and they only came the one time I called even though I would think it would a daily thing to help keep bears always. The cable box would not work in the bunk room on the bottom floor. The internet went out a couple times (could've been the rainy weather). I had to go out and get batteries for the remotes. I paid over $4500 for this cabin and regretted it from the moment I walked through the door.

With all that being said the resort itself was very helpful and patient with the booking. When I did call them about an issue they were on top of it. Friendly customer service staff (even though maintenance seemed annoyed) and clean surroundings, very quiet. I would maybe book with Elk Springs Resort again just maybe not this cabin in particular."

"Overall Southern Philosophy was a great location and the layout was fantastic. Being that we are in the middle of a pandemic we were shocked to see how dirty the cabin was. The floors have obviously not bee scrubbed in a very long time nor furniture moved as we found all sorts of stuff under the furniture. The shower curtains were covered in mold (they did replace them), but in two of the bedrooms the dressers were never checked. Master Bedroom had a sex toy left in it and downstairs there were dirty clothes and underwear. The cleaning was very much less to be desired. Every-time we did call the management staff was attentive to send somebody up, but they never wore a mask once. We even asked them after the 1st time somebody stopped by to ensure employees would wear a mask when coming in and they assured us they would going forward. That never happened. This is our 4th visit to Elk Spring Resorts and by far the worst experience."

"Our family visited Gatlinburg and loved the initial appearance of this beautiful cabin, especially the family room and game room amenities. However we discovered the sheets on two of the beds had not been changed prior to our arrival. Thankfully property management did work to change the bedding as requested. In the kitchen, the skillets were rusty and other cookware was worn out. The management company did help us quiet down the rowdy neighbors 3 out of the 6 night stay but we had to drive around late at night to get the names of the cabins where folks were making noise and partying and provide this info to the management. Elk Springs needs to improve its communication to renters about "quiet time" after 10PM. We also had a significant roof leak in the kitchen following a rain storm and management will follow-up on the roof leak. I would not recommend this cabin for families with young children."

"The Southern Philosophy cabin was gorgeous & clean. It was well lite & heated when we arrived in Dec. There are a couple of things that would have made our stay perfect- i would have liked to have had access to recycling. We accumulated a lot of trash in 7 days & I would have preferred to recycle half of it! I also wish that the description had been a little better. We chose this cabin because of the ramp leading into it & to the gazebo. I assumed it would be more wheelchair accessible than it was. The description claimed the gazebo was gotten to from a ramp. This was untrue. Because of how steep the grounds are the lowest floor is not wheelchair accessible at all from inside or outside. This meant one of our family members did not have access to the gazebo, hot tub, sauna, pool & ice hockey tables, or the theater room. I wish we had known this ahead of time so that family member hadn't been looking forward to the hot tub & sauna. I also wish they would have called the upper floor "soaking tubs" bath tubs. The term "soaking" leads you to believe that the tubs are oversized for soaking. They are not. They are typical, to smaller than typical bathtub size. Overall, the cabin was perfect for a covid family get together, while trying to avoid other people. It really is beautiful & spacious. The area is gorgeous as well- we were able to see snow capped mountains from our wrap around porch. Downtown Gatlinburg was a very close drive. I believe the theater projector played regular dvd's, so remember to bring your own! They supply 3 movies. The management company was very quick to pick up garbage every time we called them. Everyone that we spoke to was very kind, even the person in charge of texting. I loved the contact free check in-check out process, it was very easy!"

"This was our third time visiting Gatlinburg and our second time staying in Elk Springs resort. Because of the uncertainty of the pandemic and the large group we ended up traveling with it was not easy finding a cabin at the last minute. But Elk Springs Resort did not disappoint. The cabin was fleas, well stocked with items we needed, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The downstairs area was perfect for our group of five loud teenagers. They were able to have fun without bothering the adults upstairs. The resort was on top of any requests such as removing trash or even things as minor as replacing a missing hockey puck from the air hockey table. The kids loved having game night in the gazebo and the whole family enjoyed our private grassy area where we were able to play badminton. The best part was soaking in the hot tub while the fireflies lit up the evening.
In the previous reviews there were some comments about parking. But I must say the there was more than enough. We came in two large trucks plus an SUV with a trailer pulling three motorcycles. All these were packed in front of our cabin and still there was room to spare.
We will always recommend Elk Springs Resort as they have not let us down yet.
Thank you for an amazing stay and a much needed rest."

"The cabin itself is very pretty but it wasn’t great for the price. Cable didn’t work and we had to have them come out to fix it, they came out but then had to call Comcast and we had to wait 2 more days. The internet never fully worked. The downstairs bathroom was full of dead and living millipede type bugs. It had obviously not been cleaned so we cleaned the tub and toilet before use. The gazebo was not accessible from the deck and so the listing was misleading. It was down a fairly steep hill so my elderly in-laws could not access it. The kitchen was not supplied well at all. One tiny can opener that didn’t even work so we purchased a new one and left it for the next guest. Not many serving dishes. We never could find a broom in the place. Light above one upstairs shower was out. The parking isn’t great as it is right in a turn around the guests in the cabin next to us had about 5 cars making parking for our 2 vehicles pretty tricky. The deck could use some small tables for itting outside and enjoying coffee in the rocking chair. The listing boasted a Mountain View and that’s comical. The view of the mountain was one tiny littl place where you could see, if you strained, a tiny part of a hill top. Overall we wouldn’t book again."

"Overall this was a wonderful cabin. There was plenty of room for our 9 guests. The kitchen was stocked with enough dishes and cookware for our breakfast. The theater room was great for watching sports and the hot tub was very relaxing. We enjoyed the rec room downstairs as well and the property is a quick 5 minutes to the grocery store and 20 minutes to downtown Gatlinburg.
The property, like anything else, could be improved. The king bed frame upstairs was busted upon arrival, forcing one of our couples to sleep on a crooked bed for 2 nights. Unless you were on the main floor, the wifi was worthlessly weak. Though mentioned in the ad for the cabin, the number of towels could be increased for minimal cost. And lastly the sauna was nothing more than a pine box at room temperature; the heating element needs to be replaced.
Like previously mentioned the cabin was wonderful and we had a great time for the weekend. We would stay here again. 9.2/10"

My friends and I enjoyed every minute of our time here. So, the property is pristine! On our second day of our stay the manger called to make sure that we needed anything. It was clean, decorated beautifully and spacious. All the bedrooms where spacious and no one felt as though they were being cheated out of space. The air hockey table and movie theater were a hit! The large spacious living area connected to the dining room that held the beautiful farm style dining table and a wall of floor to ceiling windows and doors allowed us to enjoy each other without having to be in the same room. The rocking chairs on the deck allowed us to enjoy the serenity of the sun setting. It was so beautiful we decided to go out to dinner only one night out of our stay. With a fully equipped kitchen and gas grill, we said why not go to the grocery store that is within 7 miles of the property and enjoy the space around us was our reasoning! We all began talking about bring different groups of family members for vacation or even celebrating holidays! It is just that beautiful. During the day we took the short ride, about 15 minutes, to pottery class one day then the Titanic museum another. Downtown Gatlinburg was great for people watching and eating ice cream.

"We used Southern Philosophy as our family reunion headquarters with families staying in two other nearby cabins. It was very comfortable, clean, and well equipped. Two family groups and grand parents were quite comfortable. Kids used the pool table and air hockey a lot. The hot tub got a lot of use too. The outdoor gazebo is not so easily accessible because you have to walk down a steep grassy slope. It would be nice if you could walk out of the lowest deck to access it. The kitchen is pretty well equipped. There is ample glassware, silverware and dishes although we had to ask for a can opener and the ice maker does not work.

"My name is William Soto. For the past couple of years, I have been visiting Tennessee with my family for the Christmas Holidays, and I have always booked with your properties. We have stayed in cabins such as Amazing Views Retreat and Wine Down, to name a few. Both of these properties I can say have completely met our expectations. We booked our vacation a year ago with Southern Philosophy because of its great pictures online. However, this was not the case upon arrival. The cabin was in very poor condition. For the money spent on this rental, I can say that this cabin was filthy. I was completely embarrassed bringing my family on this trip after seeing the conditions of this place. After review, we noticed that the pictures advertised on your website are not an accurate representation of the cabin. As a result, we are packing our bags and leaving early tomorrow morning – 2 days ahead of schedule. Aside from having broken furniture (sofa), the rugs are in need of great detail cleaning. I am highlighting below and including pictures of how this cabin was given to us. I would like you to know that this has completely changed my impression of Elk Springs Resort, and I will no longer be visiting your properties again. I anticipate someone to give me a call regarding this situation and I would kindly appreciate a courtesy discount if you would like to keep my continuing business. Not only do I come here yearly, but my family and friends also book cabins of their own thru Elk Springs Resort. Because of this experience, I will honestly advise them to reconsider or halt their bookings."

"I do not personally recommend staying at a Elk Springs Cabin. This past weekend we rented the Southern Philosophy Cabin at a rate of $361/night. My expectation was to have a peaceful weekend in the mountains, however there was a raging party in the adjacent cabin that lasted until 3: 30 AM. After calling the office to complain, no remedy was suggested. This ruined our weekend. In addition, the sound system in the “theatre” room was not working. The carbon monoxide detector went off, upon further inspection the hot water heater was not properly vented and carbon monoxide was entering the cabin. After no help with the party next door the night before we decided to simply turn off the hot water heater ourselves. Renter BEWARE."

"My family and I absolutely loved our cabin in elk springs! It was perfectly located in between pigeon forge and downtown gatlinburg. The inside was gorgeous with a beautiful staircase and floor to ceiling fireplace! Large kitchen and outdoor grill had everything we needed we cooked a lot for our family of 10. Very clean. The view was picturesque. The staff was very nice and quick to take care of our needs, I. e. pick up garbage. If I ever need to go to Tennessee again I will definitely stay here."

"Online photos of cabin we're definitely taken when the cabin was brand new, some items (couches, bedding, linens) need updating/replacement. The cabin could also use a proper cleaning job (kitchen cabinets were sticky). Considering that the cabin sleeps 12, it definitely needs a much larger hot tub or a second one installed (a hot tub that holds 4 people is not enough). Theatre room is a room with uncomfortable chairs (not photographed on website) and vintage/mix-matched equipment. The location was pretty and convenient to town. This cabin definitely should be in pristine condition for the price of the rental, unfortunately it was not :("

"We arrived at the cabin around 4pm and by 8pm the upstairs was still 82 degrees. The lodge sent someone very quickly to look at it and gave us a big box fan to use. It was so loud you couldn't hear the person across the room from you. By 10pm that night we had to call for clean sheets because two of the beds still had dirty sheets on them. We could handle the loud fan but the dirty sheets pushed our limits. I guess when you pay what we did you expect the place to be clean. The main living room couch was worn and ripped and the ice maker stayed clogged up so we had to buy ice daily not to mention 2 extra fans to keep the cabin cool. I do have to say whenever we called the office for something the crew was very nice and helpful and would call us back to check on us. Just very disappointed in the condition of the cabin, it makes me wonder if the owners know what condition it is in."

"Overall, our stay was wonderful! The cabin was clean and exactly what we needed. The door code wasn't working initially, and Elk Springs staff responded promptly to make sure we got in. We also had some issues with the air conditioning. Maintenance responded quickly. They were unable to fix it due to needing to order specific parts, but gave us window a/c units and large fans so we were comfortable. The location is perfect- far enough removed to experience nature, but close to downtown. We are already looking at dates to come back and stay at Elk Springs Resort."

"The rental experience was easy. The cabin is beautiful. Although it didn't change our experience - the heating unit that heats the living area and basement/teather room area didn't work properly. When we woke up on Saturday morning the temperature in the stairwell to the basement read 55. It was even cooler in the basement. We did read the instructions and follow them and kept doors closed on the mid level and used the fireplace. Also we could not get the sauna to work (also reading and following instructions). Again it didn't change the experience but should be looked at for the next guest."

Having some way to have access to movies would have made great use of the beautiful theater; have more towels available; a working fireplace; a working air hockey game; a working sauna; a hair dryer; and a Keurig. Again, this was a wonderful cabin. It just seems that a little more attention to the details would have taken it to the next level and would increase return rates."

"We rented Southern Philosophy, Misty Mountain Lodge and Summit Sanctuary for our wedding ceremony and reception. All of our guests said it was the most beautiful wedding that they ever attended! The staff was very accommodating and helpful, offering their assistance with any last minute needs! We could not have asked for a better location! The property was perfect for a 40 x 20' tent and our 85 guests! Southern Philosophy was used as a central point for our reception as it has a large cathedral ceiling living room which was the perfect size! We rented the three cabins for our famiies and close friends to stay for the weekend, which was close to 40 people!. Everyone had a wonderful time during their stay, not only enjoying the ceremony but all the offerings of the cabins! From pool tables and theater rooms to saunas and hot tubs, Elk Springs Resort is top notch! No comparison to other rentals in the area! If you're looking for a fun, relaxing weekend away, or an excellent spot for a moderate sized wedding, you've found it! Thanks to all of the staff for making our special day better than imagined!"

"We spent a few days here and enjoyed every minute of it. The location was right in the middle between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Great location for when traffic gets busy during the seasons & you can take the backroads to the cabin and miss all the traffic. Once there, the kids & adults enjoyed the basement level with pool, air hockey, hot tub, sauna, & theatre room. There were nice flat screen tvs in every room. The management staff checked on us throughout our stay and were very nice. The cabin was clean for the most part. I think the comforters need an updating; especially in the master. The cabin had no skillet/frying pan, but we brought our griddle from home so no problem. I'm sure if we had told the management company they would have taken care it. Both family's can't wait to stay again. We were very pleased with Southern Philosophy & Elk Mountain."
