River Escape was just the right size for a couple. It had a remote feeling but was close to everything we needed. The lack of dressers stumped us initially but my husband used the wardrobe in the master and I used the one in the upstairs bedroom. Loved the antique bed upstairs. The weather turned nasty that week, and we were able to enjoy the covered deck for just a couple of days. But it was great to sit out with a glass of wine and a book and watch the Little River rush by. During the next leg of our trip in NC we stayed at a larger property but it lacked the charm of River Escape. Would definitely book again. Only suggestion would be to take a weed wacker to the area around the cabin.
We loved our 3 nights at River Escape. It was the perfect base to come back to every day and relax after exploring the area. The size was just right and had everything we needed. It was clean and seemed well-kept for a vacation rental. The only negative - the bathroom off the master bedroom was always cold!
We love the location of cabin and the sights and sounds of the river at your back door. This was our second stay here, and it was drastically different than our first stay. The cabin did not have a clean feel to it, and required some cleaning when we got there, such as sweeping, mopping, re-washing some dishes, and washing the inside of garbage can. We also noticed when we took trash out that the outside trash can had not been emptied after last renters. We did not use hot tub because there was a strong mildew smell. We also were plagued with stink bugs the whole weekend. Don't know if there is a new cleaning crew, but you need different housekeepers.
We thoroughly enjoyed this newer cabin. Nice furnishings, extra comfortable king bed with TV in master bedroom. Nice big porch to look out on the river. We paddled right to the cabin! Loved our stay and added additional days to our stay.
This cabin offers you both privacy and beauty in one location. It was very clean and roomy. We couldn't be happier with our choice to vacation in the Smoky Mountains. Very close to food, shopping, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, Zipline, Horseback riding, roller coasters. We will will be going back soon!
