Not a horrible place, but several things in the cabin either did not work or were of questionable cleanliness and/or serviceability. Can opener, coffee maker did not work. Hot tub had an old, stale smell. Kitchen sink and downstairs bathroom sink drained REALLY slowly. The sofa was peeling. Fake flowers super dusty. Jacuzzi littered with dead bugs. Comforters faded and looked old. Although we brought our own, cabin supplied only one roll of paper towels and two rolls of TP for an entire long weekend. The good: owner was pleasant and responsive when I phoned regarding the television remote and cable service. Location was quiet. Cabin was spacious.
Cabin is located in between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It’s about a 15-20 min drive either way. GPS takes you straight to it although there are about 4/5 different ways and we managed to do them all. Driveway is not bad either.
We took our dog and our two kids. They loved it. They have a hot tub, pool table, foosball table, air hockey table and multiple board games too. The cabin did NOT smell like dogs to me. The beds were comfy but the comforters need to be replaced. They kinda smell old or of moth balls and dingy.
The DVD player didn’t work but spoke with the owner and they are really nice and looking into that for repair. Cute cabin and I would recommend. I would caution if you had a toddler though because the stairs are narrow and winding. All the games are up there too so it would be a lot of temptation to climb. Perfect location if you plan on traveling between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
We had a great stay and loved the cabin. It was in a great location and had all the amenities and more! It was just what we wanted and look forward to our return.
My family and I stayed at the Playful Paws cabin for 5 days , four nights. It is in a perfect location between Gantlinburg and Pigeon Forge, it's only 15 minutes to reach either. The owner is very responsive to anything that needs to be done. We will definitely be making this a yearly event.
We had an amazing time getting away to a nice cabin. Everything needed was there and well set up. The only thing was the cleaning. When we arrived there was stuff all over the mirror in the bathroom and a pacifier covered in the downstairs bedroom floor and dirty towels in the washer. We had a great time and would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting just to get away for the weekend!
