      Great place for big groups

      We rented owl lodge for a class field trip to the Smoky Mountains. It was a great place to stay for our big group. The place was even bigger than it looked in the photos. Really enjoyed our stay!

      4/5 Good

        Very spacious!

        We rented Mountain Joy #3 for a week at Christmas and for the second half of the week had a full house that included some toddlers and babies. There was a lot of room to spread out and the living room and kitchen are very spacious! (Though for some reason, the kitchen is never shown in the pictures.) The location is very close to Cataloochee Ski Area and also very close to town. We ate all of our meals there and were able to all sit at the very large dining room table. Beds were comfortable and we loved having so many bathrooms! I am not giving 5 stars because of the following: 1) the dishwasher did not work; 2) though the kitchen was well stocked for cooking and eating, there were absolutely no dishtowels or dishcloths. (Thankfully I had brought some from home!); 3) some parts of the house were not very clean; and 4) not a lot of parking close to the house ... hard to move in and out. (we did drive around back once we saw that it was possible, but still crowded) Highlights: the kids enjoyed the ducks on the pond and 2 mornings we saw large elk in front and in back of the house!

          We loved mountain joy 3

          I stayed this weekend with 13 others 11 adults and 3 children. It was great for us the sitting arrangements and kitchen was great for us together. Then the bedrooms where such we had our privacy. The location was for the most part clean but it could have been a little bit better. Outside area was quite and nice but you where close to area restaurants and shops. Overall we had a great time and would definitely consider returning next year.

          4/5 Good


            This place has exceeded our expectations. Very spacious, equipped well and overall clean. We wish there was a full patio sitting area but front porch had enough reclining chairs to enjoy our morning coffee!

            4/5 Good

              Great house for a large family

              The best thing is the space this house has - in addition to the bedrooms, the living spaces are large and comfortable for a large group. The house is split up in a way that allows people that need quiet or privacy at different times to do that. It is a cabin and a little "rustic" but what we expected. We did have a maintenance problem but they responded quickly. Overall, everyone was happy and comfortable and we would stay again.
