Description of the Gatlinburg vacation cabin rental

Sassafras Lodge is an authentic log house and is architecturally accurate for the locality of the Southern Highlands in the time period of the 1890's to early 1900's. The Lodge is furnished and decorated in accordance with that period. However, the Lodge is also fully equipped with all the modern living conveniences we have come to enjoy. Please enjoy our unique home and our local nature library, nature paths and forest friends.

DISAPPOINTED, but still a beautiful home.

May 31, 2011

We were looking for a pet friendly, family of 6, vacation home. Seemed, according to the description, Sassafras Lodge was perfect. But we were disappointed once we finally arrived. Finding the lodge on the narrow, winding, one lane road was our first challenge, but we eventually made it. The driveway was very steep and even difficult for us to walk. (Particularly for our 75 year old mother.) We were told there was internet available at the house, there was NOT. Our daughter had a school project to complete, she had to go into Gatlingburg for Wi-Fi access. We had trouble using the tv in the main living area. There were no instructions on how to operate the tv, satellite, or dvd player. The location of the lodge was not what we expected. Due to the drive to and from the lodge we only went out during day light hours. We had hoped that making shopping, dining, and exploration would be more convenient. This is a beautiful home just not the type of home for our active family to vacation.

Guestbook

The T----- family from West Monroe, La loved staying here at Sassafras Lodge! The late evenings we spent on the porch on rocking chairs will always be remembered. We loved the covered bridge and the stream by the old cemetery. Your place, although tough to find at first, was well worth it! Thanks for letting us enjoy your place. 4/2011

"ODE TO SASSAFRAS Gatlinburg is always so much fun From Park Waterfalls to Ripleys, its run, run,run, run! Take the Ober Tram for a ride And then go fast on the Alpine Slide! Nothing is more beautiful than all the trees, In October, they showed all colors of leaves. But the BEST part of this trip has acreage & grass, Its a beautiful cabin called SASSAFRAS! At the end of the driveway we saw a small bear, We were in the car so it wasn't a scare. The cabin is so perfect in every single way That we're booking our next visit without delay!" "Thank you for letting us stay at your amazing property! We loved every minute of it 11/10

Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your cabin this week! We enjoyed everything from relaxing by the fireplace, watching movies and TV's, playing cards and pool, building snowmen (we had 6-9 inches of snow the day we arrived), walked the roads and explored our surroundings, enjoyed the views, grilled and cooked, shopped in town and spent quality time just being together! We had a blast! We had everything we needed right here at our fingertips!! You have a beautiful home! It's very comfortable and relaxing! I hope we can visit here again here again soon! God Bless you, The J......... and the G.........s Savannah, TN P.S. We watched the Sam Elliot movies and he died three times! We left you a western "Shiloh Falls" to add to your collection!! 1/5/11

Message: Just wanted to thank you for letting us rent your beautiful log cabin - Trillium during our visit from 7/3/11-7/10/11. Your cabin was beautiful, we spent many hours sitting on the covered porch -the picnic table was perfect for our family meals and card games. Loved the rockers also. The location was great - just far enough from the craziness of Gatilinburg and Pigeon Forge but still close enough to enjoy if we wanted. Enjoyed the 4th fireworks over Gatlinburg, hiking in the park, whitewater rafting, ziplining. Had many games of pool in the lower level. We ended up not bringing our own dog but got a dog "fix" from a visit from the neighborhood very well behaved dog. Really had everything we needed to make it a great vacation. Thanks so much. Would definitely highly recommend!!! 7/17/11

"Thank you, Thank You, Thank You!!! This was perfect. One of the things we hated most about vacations was not eating home cooked meals. With this house we could, BBQ's for dinner...what a great way to end our evening. Everything is close at hand with not a lot of travel. This was quite a nice location, we love the serenity of the house! We could have been the only people for miles. Thank You for sharing your house with us." 5/11

" Yalls cabin is so beautiful....I really liked all the antiques...made us feel at home. We had a lot of fun but we did pick a bad week to come. It stormed just about every day and lost electricity about every day. Really wished we could stay longer! Everything was wonderful. Thank you so much for letting us stay!" 6/2011

We had never been to TN & the Great Smokey Mountains. What a wonderful vacation we had. The cabins is wonderful with lots of amenities! It is so peaceful & quiet up here. We could just move right in. Our daughters have enjoyed catching the moths & grasshoppers and just playing in the yard. We hiked, went rafting, visited downtown and did some shopping. We enjoyed touring the National Park & even spotted bears, turkeys, deer, squirrels & lots of birds. Our friend, who was with us from Mexico also thoroughly enjoyed herself. We will definitely be back!" 6/10/11

"One whole week of relaxation and enjoying the time with family. We looked for a long time to find a cabin that would allow large breed dogs and we're so thankful to find this place! During our stay here with Son, daughter-in-law and 1 year old grandson (he turned one while we were here!) we visited the shops in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We highly recommend eating/visiting the Applewood Barn and going to the Dixie Stampede, you'll be glad you did. We took a day trip to Cades Cove and saw some black bears! Great Time! The cabin was beautiful, comfortable and had all the supplies we needed to cook whatever we wanted to bring in from the store. If we ever return to Gatlinburg, THIS is where we want to stay again!!" 6/24/2011

"It was our first time staying in a cabin and it was wonderful. A little scary coming up the hills at night, but we loved it! We shopped and toured everyday and ate 'til we couldn't eat anymore. My family came during my 2 weeks R&R from Talil, IRAQ. We were very nervous I wasn't gonna make it. I kept getting delayed in Kuwait! But, I made it just in time. And it was a well needed vacation! All the fresh air and beautiful greenery reminded me of what we're over there fighting for, the freedom & well being of others. Thanks for allowing us our stay in your lovely home! We wish you many blessings! A happy family..........." 7/8/11

"We loved your cabin! It is beautiful! The location is superb! We had a great time. Mornings on the porch with coffee are great! Thank you for your hospitality! We'll be back!" 6/11
