We rented this lodge before with a different agency, and we are so happy that Stony Brook Cabins took it over! They checked in with us, were very communicative and kind, and ensured we had everything we needed throughout our stay! We highly recommend it!

We enjoyed the house/area so much that we’re already planning to return here for our 4th Annual Family & Friends Retreat in 2025. The house was clean and spacious enough for us all to feel like we could sneak away and get some quiet time if we chose to do so. The hosts were very responsive and helpful with providing ongoing updates and offering assistance if needed. This cabin was definitely above and beyond our expectations and we are looking forward to staying here again very soon. The hot tub and pool were a plus, although we never used either due to the weather. However, the added amenities were most definitely a bonus.

Great location & perfect for large groups
The Big Poplar Retreat has a lot of room for larger groups to stay and have their own space. Kitchen is fully stocked, more than enough towels and blankets, they supply dish soap, dishwasher tablets, sponges, shampoo, conditioner and soap. Only thing I will note is that it advertises they have "hair dryer" and there is only one in the unit when the unit will sleep over 60 people. We never found the one hairdryer but luckily someone else brought one. Also the kitchenette downstairs is not stocked with anything other than a tea towel, sponge and dish soap. No dishes, cups, glasses or silverware so you would need to bring down from main floor kitchen. Other than that, the place was perfect for our needs. Thanks Vacasa for another great stay! We have stayed in this area for 3 years in a row and not sure we will go anywhere else.

More than a place to sleep.
This property was the perfect location for an annual office retreat. The accommodations were more than enough for our visit to Gatlinburg. Located within a short walk to downtown with a shorter walk to a trolley stop. This was very convenient for taking in restaurants and shopping without the hassle of attempting to park on the main strip. The house is beautiful with cabin themed decor throughout.

We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments along to our local manager to review and we appreciate guests’ preferences as a means to continually improve. We look forward to hosting your next stay!

Sistare family WINTER vacation
Location was GREAT. We were able to walk to and from the downtown main area of Gatlinburg, even the 4 year old. Watched the fireworks on New Years Eve from our deck with a great view. Large Gathering Room on main level with kitchen/dining area was great for our large group. We had a few minor problems but as soon as we notified the manager the problems were immediately taken care of. We recommend this to large groups and we look forward to going again soon.

Great house for a large group or family!
This place was great. Even better than expected. It was super clean and check-in was easy for everyone. Plenty of parking. The house itself is in a great spot- walkable to the center of Gatlinburg but you also have some great forest/mountain views from the front and back of the house. Great place and we hope to go back to this house or one of the others in the complex.

Great time in Gatlinburg
Property was awesome as advertised very clean. Cabin feels much larger than the impression I got from the pictures. Stairs were a bit steep and was a challenge for some of the older members of the family. Minor issues at arrival that didn't impact our trip but host offered to have someone fix. Close to everything in downtown Gatlinburg. The trash bins inside the house and in the community are much smaller than expected. Family of 19 had a great time would definitely rent again.

Our family truly enjoyed this amazing cabin. We did see a bear and cub out back of the property but we followed instructions left to not feed bears and other information.

I will definitely be staying here again in the future.

Sleeping with the bear
This property was nothing short of GREAT! The photos were spot on. There were any surprises and my family enjoyed every night. The location is spot on. Everything is within walking distance. The high light of our stay, aside from the actual cabin, was seeing the black bear multiple times. He didn't bother anyone while taking his morning and night walks. He simply cruised the sidewalk and kept quiet. If I could make any recommendation it would be to look into new mattresses in the near future. They weren't the most comfortable. We still had the best time and will be returning for sure.

Hi Victoria, thank you for staying with us. We are so happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed the home and everything it has to offer. We have passed along your recommendation to update the mattresses to our local manager who will work with the homeowner to make any necessary upgrades. We hope to welcome you back in the future!
