What a vacation! Creekside Lodge at Cedar Falls Resort is beautiful. This cabin is constructed out of large timbers, a real lodge. The access is easy, nice flat parking. We entered In the front- the door is a large curved wooden door. The dining table is large round looks hand made, it had chairs and benches. I've never seen a table so large, our family including children enjoyed eating together. The kitchen had nice new stainless steel appliance, photos show older appliances, nice surprise. The kitchen is so organized and many serving dishes, even has crock pots. The living room has 2 nice leather couches and love seat. The gas fireplace has doors that look hand made, perfect for a lodge. All bedroom were very spacious with different lodge theme. Back screened porch was an extension of the lodge with two large tables, kids and adults loved playing uno at night. Oh and the hot tub under the stars, very nice. Large rocking chairs and tables on all porches were very nice. Theatre room is very large with two leather sectionals, movies time was very nice. Our grownup boys loved the gameroom with 3 TVs- they could watch the game while playing pool. We had our own private fishing pond with waterfall. Children loved catching the fish. We had to buy the poles but it was worth it to watch them. We made many photos and many memories. We saw many fish, turtles, turkeys and birds. The small stream beside the cabin was less that a foot deep in most places, very nice for small children. We enjoyed walking to the resort swimming pool every day. We also shopped at the Five Oaks Mall in Pigeon Forge, only a few miles. We went to Ripleys aquarium in Gatlinburg, the glass tunnel with sharks was amazing!! Dollywood was nice but very crowed so we didn't stay long. This cabin/lodge is the more that we could ever dream of. We will recommend Maples Ridge Vacation Rentals to everyone. And we will be back!
- [ ] Gamblers Cove is awesome. Very clean. Convenient to Pigeon Forge, lots of room for our family. Maples Ridge Rentals are incredible. They are truly a southern family full of southern hospitality. The maintenance gentleman, Seth is an angel. The tv would not show a picture, he repaired very quickly. The kitchen had everything to prepare a meal for my family. Our beds were very comfortable. Grandchildren loved bunk beds and hot tub. We called to check out and lady said "Have a safe trip home and Hope to See Y'all again soon" We had a wonderful vacation.
Our stay was great, thank you! It was really beautiful there. Everything in the Hitchin Post cabin was perfect, very clean and organized cabin. We drove around the area close to the different mountain ranges it was really neat. We did a little hiking. We did some hiking in the Cades Cove area which was really cool, I couldn't believe how many deer were around. We really liked how secluded the cabin was, there are a lot of others around but really could not see them. Thank you so much again Maples Ridge Cabins, we really enjoyed our time there.
Love their cabin in Wears Valley! Celebrated anniversary and enjoyed the hot tub as well as pool table. Very romantic!
We spent 4 nights at Maples Ridge Cabins Timber Top cabin and was very pleased with the service and cleanliness. Very caring owners and staff. We were treated with utmost respect and the cabin was equipped with everything we needed and was extremely clean. We will definitely stay with this company in the future
We have been visiting Pigeon Forge and staying in cabins for many years. Wild Berry Lodge is the best cabin we have ever rented in the Smokies. Very close to downtown Pigeon Forge. The large family room allowed our family of 12 to enjoy watching the huge tv and playing card games. The kitchen is well stocked with a bar/counter with seats. The large kitchen table was surrounded by windows. All beds were made out of logs. The upstairs had the bunk beds my children LOVED them. They also enjoyed the pool table and air hockey. We ventured down the mountain to find the little stream. We found it,very small but we found salamanders, very interesting. We also built a fire in the fire pit and roasted marshmallows. We got to visit the Maples farm. Yes, the Maples really live just down the little country road. The large bunnies are the best. We will definitely return to the Maples cabin. Whaley's market is a great country store. We also visited Gatlinburg. We enjoyed the Sky Lift, Gatlinburg tramway to Ober ski resort, Smoky Mountain Moonshine, Dixie Stampede, Dollywood , Splash Country and Hatfield and McCoy.
We rented from Aardvark 2 years ago and got engaged at the Snuggle Bear cabin. We had a wonderful time and decided to return this year, but to try out a different cabin, the Sky Ryder. Big mistake. This cabin was a nightmare and we ended up leaving early as a result. First of all, we had one tiny light on the fan in the master bedroom and multiple lightbulbs out in the entire cabin. When I called to tell the office, Jeannie was very rude and told me someone couldn't get there until the next day. Next, we noticed brown, cold water in the hot tub, which was very disappointing. I called Jeannie again and was told that we are in the mountains. Then I got off the phone and tried to sit in the rocking chair at which point, I fell through. I got up to look and there were nails sticking out of the chair and duct tape holding the back together. That night we lost power for a few hours during the night, making it very warm. We tried to make the best of it and stick it out. The next night we decided to try out the advertised jacuzzi tub. When we filled it with water, the water was brown and the jets sounded like a plane in our room. After draining the water, we found a brown film stuck to the tub, gross. The next day we lost power twice in perfect weather. that night, we lost power and water for 6 1/2 hours. I tried calling the emergency line at Aardvark, but there was no message space. We had to google the electric company with hardly any phone battery power and leave a message. However, all of the other cabins on the mountain had power. That night we were unable to use the hot tub, flush toilets, or even brush our teeth. There were not any flashlights or candles in the cabin or even a number to call should this happen. The nex day, Jeannie actually laughed when I told her this and refused to move us for our last night or refund us any money. The BBB has given them an "F" rating! DO NOT RENT FROM AARDVARK CABIN RENTALS!
