“Nice house for our family reunion vacation, but hard to find”
Reviewed 16 November 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Came here in July for a family reunion. The road this house is situated on is so hard to find, my husband and I drove past it about 4 times, and when my sister arrived late at night, we actually had to walk down to direct her from the main road because she drove by so many times and was close to tears. Basically it's a hairpin turn and you can't even really see the street sign from the main road. Once you get there, you go up a steep hill and there's really no indication as to where the house is (you can go off to the right and up, or straight, or up higher). Clearer directions would be great.

Besides the hard to find street, the house itself was great. It's huge, and the pictures are accurate. Gameroom was great for our large family group, we had all 7 bedrooms plus the sofa occupied, but it never felt cramped. Very clean, and nice views from the balcony. Big kitchen table, and an island with stools helped since there were too many of us to all sit at the table for meals. The huge vaulted ceiling and windows is certainly dramatic and gorgeous, but there are no shades or anything to block the sun, which can be a bit of an issue if you want to watch tv (or sleep late on the couch).

The location is within walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg (about 15 min) but in the summer heat this walk isn't exactly fun, especially with the steep hill up to the house. Overall it was a very nice house, but I wouldn't stay here again (then again I wouldn't go to Gatlinburg again, but it's just not my cup of tea).

Thanks so much for submitting a response. I glad you loved the cabin. Navagating in the mountains can be a little tricky. While this property is close to the downtown area, with beautiful views, I personally wouldn't recommend the walk. It's a little too steep and certainly a challenge in the summer heat. I'm sorry you don't think you'll be returning to our area. Should you change you mind, I hope you'll give American Patriot Getaways a call and let us meet your lodging needs.
