It rained the first 3days we were there so we kind of hung out during the day and went to shows at night. The 4th day it was nice and we spent the day in Gatlinburg going to shops and doing the artisan loop.
We loved our stay at the Cozy Cottage - perfect for our holiday getaway. The views are beautiful and the cabin is great for just kicking back and relaxing. We were able to rest, read, cook, enjoy the hot tub and jacuzzi. It was so comforting to know the cabin was waiting for us after a full day in either Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this cabin. Everything was clean, tidy and tasteful. All appliances are updated and work great. We absolutely loved spending time in the hot tub and jacuzzi to relax. We cooked everyday and the cabin had all the kitchen tools we needed(except I brought a coffee grinder for fresh ground coffee :P) The only thing that was a downside was that the firewood was not covered or protected in any way, so it was too wet to light a fire. Other than that we had a great time with a great view of the mountains. Thank you!

All in all, we will be looking to stay somewhere else next time we come. We had a great time during our stay, I just felt very uncomfortable about the overall cleanliness and condition of the cabin. If I were looking I would pay a little more for something nicer and possibly even stay closer to Gatlinburg as it's a much nicer town. If I were management at this property I would look into a remodel of the kitchen and bathroom and hiring a better more thorough cleaning team and working on making this place look more profesional.
Pros: cheap, close to town, great views, nice deck, nice fireplace, "cozy"
Cons: everything (appliances, decor, shower, hot tub) is outdated, the bed set just seemed old and dirty, floors in bathroom need replaced as the subfloor seems to be rotting under the cheap linoleum, bath tub was gross and dirty , hot water runs out after a single shower, floors were sticky by the bed, there was no mattress protection which grossed me out a little, and the drive way is crazy steep.
