After a positive experience at one of the owner's other properties, my family and I (7 total) booked this cabin the first week of May. It was very quiet while being nearby to the "main drag" of Gatlinburg. We parked at the post office and grabbed a trolley from there whenever we wanted to go downtown (where parking is always difficult and expensive).
We have stayed here for decades and keep going back! It's not the ritz Carlton... But a great locally owned place that is very well maintained! The …

My family and I spent a week at this cabin in mid-April. We all had a fantastic time! It was clean, well-maintained, and the owner was very professional to deal with. We've decided to make this place our regular vacation rental whenever we visit Gatlinburg, which is often. It's a great value and is certainly better than staying at one of the cheesy hotels in the area!
I spent a week at this cabin in late April of 2018 with my wife, son, daughter-in-law, and their two children. (We heard that you need to spend at least 5 nights in Gatlinburg to adequately experience everything the area has to offer). Needless to say, the kids really loved Dollywood and the Aquarium. We adults favored the great restaurants and shows. Of course, everyone loved the Smoky Mountains. The cabin was very clean, comfortable, well-equipped, and close to everything that we wanted to visit.
I stayed here for a week with my family in late April. We were very impressed with how detailed the Web site was and how quick/easy it was to book the property. (Some places didn't even reply). The two main bedrooms had attached bathrooms and king-size beds, which we particularly liked having. We also appreciated the mountain neighborhood that had abundant wildlife. We frequently saw pheasants, deer, and small elk on the road in front of the cabin - got some great photos! We'll definitely be back.
My husband and I rented a cabin from Cabins for you last October. When we got there, the floors were so slick and dangerous that we both almost fell, myself more than him. When we booked the cabin, I repeatedly told them we needed something that was handicap accessible, which it wasn't. The pictures were beautiful and the cabin didn't live up to them. We also didn't appreciate the cleaning staff waiting in the driveway 30+ minutes before we checked out. I called a manager when we left but I don't know if anything was ever done. They definitely don't care about repeat business or making customers happy.
Been staying in Gatlinburg for more the 40 years and this place provided the worst experience in all those years. The a/c didn't work and we informed them the 1st day. After explaining how much it would cost to have it checked on a Sunday and asking if I was sure there was a problem they reluctantly agreed to have it checked. No one ever showed. Had to clean the grill and add water to the hot-tub before use. Fans were nasty and windows had no screens, but had to utilize both to cool it down - dust in the air and bugs. Also killed about 50 bee's in the front bedroom. The worst of it - the attitude and sarcasm we got at check-out when we brought these issues up. That's all we got - no apology, no credit, no discouny....NOTHING. Never using these people agos
My husband and I reserved a specific cabin thru About the Smokies, checking in on a Sunday night and checking out on a Tuesday. We looked for 3 hours wanting to find the "perfect" cabin with specific amenties. We finally found what we were looking for with "Knotty by Nature." I called Friday to confirm reservations and that we had all the information we needed to check in on Sunday. (The office is closed on Sunday, so we would have to call a number to get a security code for a lock box that held the key and other important information.) To my astonishment, when I called I was told that THEY had to change our reservations because the owner of the cabin was coming in for the weekend to move their stuff out because it had been SOLD!!!! We had already paid for that specific cabin. They were in the process of putting us in another cabin without calling and asking us first. But when I questioned the CSR she said, "Oh, I was just getting ready to call you." I don't believe that for one minute, because of the shock in her voice when I told her who I was and wanting to confirm our reservation. I said NO to another cabin, we picked that cabin for specific reasons. I think this is really bad business practices when first, the owner sales the cabin, and doesn't alert About the Smokies about it. Second, that they were going to put us in another cabin without telling us and third, the owner of ANY cabin should reserve it just like any other person. This really upset me, I couldn't believe the audicity of such!!! Do your research, throughly, before making a reservation. Make sure the office is OPEN when you go pick up your keys and always confirm a day or two before your visit that you still have the cabin your reserved!!! We got our money refunded after I refused to accept one of the other cabins. Never again will I use About the Smokies and I dissuade anyone who is thinking about renting a cabin. There are way to many other companies that use better business practices than this one. They don't even rate a one in our book.After the fact, I went to the BBB and found complaints about About the Smokies on there too. Just some advice, RESEARCH the company who you are going to be renting from!!! Lesson learned for us.
rented 4 chalets for wedding. Alpine helped with finding chalets close to each other, but 2 of the chalets were not cleaned well. floors and carpet dirty. not updated chalets. hot tubs in all four units did not work well. all beds were old and uncomfortable. we have been going to Gatlinburg for over 30 years first time renting from this company. will not rent from Alpine again, will go back to other rental companies.
Stayed here for our family summer vacation and had a blast! The ladies in the office were very helpful with directions and cabin suggestions. We stayed at Making Memories and the cabin was clean and appeared just like the pictures. Overall 10/10 rating, I'll be using Cabins For You next time we vacation to the Smoky Mountains.
At the beginning of the year I decided that it would be a great idea to take my entire family on a vacation. We looked at several places and finally decided to go to the Smoky Mountains. We stayed in a very nice large lodge that surprisingly had enough room for everyone (we have a very large family). Everything was clean and in working order. The only issue we had was with the coffee pot. The first day it seemed to not be working. We called the Cabins For You office and they brought us a new coffee pot right away. We are really looking forward to vacationing here again.
