Our family enjoyed our stay at the Mountain Gem. It was a quaint little cabin in a beautiful setting. We had some issues with the lock. It often took multiple times before our code would open the door. We would also recommend cutting some limbs to clear the view of the mountains. Other than that we were pleased with our stay.

Thank you so much for staying with us! We apologize for the issues you had regarding the lock, they can be temperamental at times. We will be sure to have a discussion with the cabin owner about the tree branches. We hope you will stay with us again!

Very convenient location for dividing our time between Maryville and Gatlinburg. Hot tub was throughly enjoyed and accommodations were comfortable. Five things we look for in a rental. 1. ) Location 2.) View 3.) Ammenities 4.) Fully supplied kitchen 5.) Comfortable accommodations. This cabin had 3 out of the 5 things that are important to us. The first night I had to cook in a very dark kitchen (which was quite a pain) because the kitchen lights were not working. It was late so I decided I would ask someone to check it out in the morning. I asked for someone to come help us with the lighting issues the next day and he found they had a short and did a quick temporary fix for the remainder of our stay. I also struggled to cook many items at once in the small kitchen because of the selection of pans and cookware available. (The pans and cookware could be added to and or updated.) The most disappointing thing was the LACK of view. We purposely rented this place because it was suppose to have a beautiful view. It was totally grown over and what would have been a beautiful view was obscured by trees and brush. When the gentleman came in to fix our kitchen light issue he even commented to us how this is the cabin with the best view but he had not taken care of the trimming yet and he was sorry about that. :( Needless to say we were very disappointed. I would recommend this place with the disclaimer that they should call and talk to someone first to see if the view is actually what is shown or not and if they don't care about using a "hodge podge" of kitchen cookware.

First of all, thank you so much for staying at our cabin! We apologize that not everything was able to meet/exceed your expectations. We will make sure to discuss with the cabin owners about the situation with the cookware, and will have the trees/brush trimmed ASAP. However, we are delighted to hear the lighting was able to be fixed in a timely manner. We hope you will consider staying with us in the future, whether again at Townsend or at one of our other cabins!

The cabin is nice but unprepared we have no gas and DVD player is broken and wasn't told about well water till we paid in full. The cabin is nice but I wouldn't stay again. Mabey if they cut the branches so you could see the view out the windows it would be better. Extra towels would be good since they have no washer and dryer but down at the bottom. Also no main garbage dump but at the bottom entrance. I hate putting garbage in the trunk of my wife's car! Also it's not child proof.

Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. When requested, we can provide additional towels/linens during one's stay. We do not advertise laundry facilities in the cabin, so we apologize if there was any miscommunication. We are sorry you were not entirely satisfied with your stay at Townsend, but we hope you will consider staying with us again at one of our other cabins!

We had a wonderful trip. We purposely chose this cabin as we did not want the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg. It was a quiet area with other cabins in the area, but we only saw people as they left in their cars. We did have an issue that was addressed quickly by Ann and Brian the maintenance people. The toilet still leaked, but we didn’t have to plunge it. Dad and hubby had surgery in the weeks before we came. It was a great place to heal and recoup. If you want busy, shopping, traffic this is not the place for you. If you want quiet, and peaceful, this fits the bill!!!

We spent two nights at Mountain Gem. We took a weekend trip to the Smokies with our daughter and grandchildren. We had a wonderful time. The cabin is as described. We would have like to have a shower in the master bathroom over the large tub, but I am sure others enjoy the tub. We would definitely recommend.

My family of 6 stayed at Cabin 3 , Mountain Gem. It was a nice little cabin, with a Great View. We stayed 3 nights. The king bed was comfortable , but I'm not sure if the bottom sheet was cleaned before we got into bed. It had a stain on it? I'm not sure what it was. The MB has a HUGE tub. But no shower. So if you wanted to take a shower you had to go upstairs. And the teens that stayed in the LR didn't have access to either bathroom without disturbing the sleeping people in the beds. So they went outside to pee in the middle of the night. The kitchen has most everything that you might need except baking dishes. Bring extra towels unless you want to do laundry. And when we were getting ready to leave , the directions on where to put the garbage were not clear. The only dumpster that we saw was at the entrance and a backhoe was sitting on top of the lid, and itcouldn't be opened. So we left the trash in a neat pile in the cabin. I would stay again , it was a great location, pretty clean. And reasonable priced.

We loved our stay! For the price this is a great cabin. It had all the amenities you'd want for a little mountain getaway and an AMAZING view. We were staying for my husband's birthday and we're grateful that we were allowed to have family come visit.

Loved our stay at this cabin; we are a family of 6 (4 little ones aged 2-6yrs). Everything we needed was there; well maintained cabin with tasteful décor! The only down side for us was that it didn't have a washer/dryer or a dishwasher. Beds were comfortable and kids really enjoyed jetted garden tub for bath time! We chose this cabin due to it's close proximity to Cades Cove. Didn't use the horse stables or zip lines, but they are located on your way to the cabin, convenient;)

My husband and I rented this cabin, came down with our best friends and we had a blast! Would definitely stay here again. The view was beautiful, hot tub was relaxing and cabin was the perfect size for four people. Only complaint I have was the fridge leaked inside and the grill was old and rusted. Easy fixes though!! Perfect location and not too far from town :)

The cabin itself is nice. However,when we arrived, the porch was covered with leaves and debris. Inside, there were bugs in all of the sinks and tubs, which also had to be cleaned before we could use them and one of the toilets wouldn't flush. Within an hour of turning on the heat, wasps and dirt dobbers started coming out of the walls and we had to fight them during our entire stay, each of us keeping watch at night since our daughter is allergic to wasps. There was also a limited supply of towels and washcloths and since there wasn't a washer/dryer available, this was not ideal.

Our team is in agreement that had we known that there were issues to this degree that we would have made every effort to relocate you and your family. We just had no idea of what was going on during your stay. We would like to say that there is a washer and dryer on site at the office for guest use. We do provide enough towels/ washcloths for our guests for the length of their stay and all of this is outlined in our booking agreement, and check in email.
