Stayed at this cabin July 23 thru the 26th, 2012. The webpage states; New luxury cabin with 2 master suites, gas fireplace, 3 televisions, and 3 dvr players. I'm not sure how long one can consider something new, but this one is pushing the boundaries. There is one king suite and a king bed in the loft area. There are 2 televisons, not three, and only 1 dvr player. Webpage states that 1 of the televisions is a 42", it's more like a 32". The other television is a tube television with a bad picture. I couldn't find any gas controls for the fireplace, and think it is actually wood burning. The small pool table in the loft is actually too big for the space it fills. Yuo have to use the 3 foot cue to play, not to mention that one of the pockets has a hole in it which allows the balls to slam to the floor scaring everyone in the cabin. The noise created from walking across the floor is enough to wake those in the downstairs bedroom. The sink in the upstairs bathroom is also too large for the area, very obtrusive when trying to use the toilet. The photo on the website depicts a nice, large hot tub area. In reality you can't take one full step out of the back door without falling into it. I posted all of these comments on the elk springs website and received no response. The price wasn't too bad but there are three different $45 charges in addition to rental price and tax. If looking for a "luxury" cabin in the Smokies, shop around. I have stayed at 6 or 7 cabins over the years and again, not terrible, but not as advertised.
