We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Puppy Love". The place was clean and well maintained, and the back porch provided a secluded place to relax.

The cabin was a nice size and comfortable but was not as clean as I expected. Cobwebs and dusty in the bathroom area. The parking area for this unit needs some immediate attention, it is not safe and it is difficult to park in the designated parking area. The unit decor is outdated and the throw rugs in the bathroom/vanity area are slippery and are a safety issue.

My husband and I spent our 2nd anniversary in Gatlinburg. The cabin was a cute and quaint pseudo- studio cabin. Everything was perfectly cozy for just us two, and the dog. It was so serene and secluded. Just the relaxing vacay we both needed.

Had a great time and a very nice cabin to stay in. I'd stay with Aunt bug's cabins again.

This cabin smelled like wet dog. We had to purchase scented candles from the local grocery store just to mask the smell. For $200 a night, you would think that they could have done something about that. The cabin itself wasn't bad, but we wouldn't have had to deal with something like that in a hotel.

Was nice to be able to bring the two dogs although I think $75.00 per dog non-refundable is too much. (Other places charged 50$). Overall cabin was nice. We had a nice relaxing time.

It was a quant little Cabin nestled in the mountain it was cute we had neighbors but not to loud and the view was great you could see the road but it was far enough away that it wasn't loud or iterating it was really nice for just the two of us and not to far from town so when we went exploring we could always get back without getting to turned around.
Reviewed On: 4/16/2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was in good shape and clean and well furnished. The only downfall was that we were right next to another cabin and we didn't have a shade (or anything) to give us more privacy in the hot tub on the porch. The description of the property does say that it's within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg, but it would be more like a hike to get to downtown. However, it was in a very good location and a very easy drive to downtown. We are looking forward to our next stay!
Reviewed On: 2/3/2016
The place was great except we were right beside another cabin and we had inquired if it was secluded and private and were told that we would be due to using the hot tub frequently<br/>
Reviewed On: 1/26/2016
We arrived on Christmas night and it was raining. When I opened the door to the cabin I was surprised I felt like we were on a mountain by our self even though there were cabins all around us. The cabin would be just perfect for me and my husband forever. The staff were very helpful and curtious.
Reviewed On: 1/15/2016
We had perfect weather 60's and cool evenings 40's however the hot tub made it great at nite and privacy, perfect for two people and will be back again maybe for larger cabin and bring whole family next time Thanks "Aunt Bugs" for the location and will refer to friends here in Indiana about our stay in Tennessee..

My husband and I were just looking to spend a couple of days away from home and had always wanted to stay in a cabin at Gatlinburg. This was our first time staying in a cabin and the experience was fair. The cabin was decent but could have used more cleaning. The fake plants had a lot of dust on them and there were cobwebs above the door in the bathroom. The comforter set on the bed was dirty. The cabin also had cockroaches which was a big concern because we were afraid we would bring them home in our luggage. I know that you are supposed to be "roughing" it a little when you stay in a cabin but we are a little particular when it comes to cleanliness. The staff at the office was very nice no complaints in that area. The location was not as private as I would have liked. Semi-private to me is a little more secluded than what we were. So the description of the area should read to let you know that you have other cabins right beside you.
