The cabin was gorgeous! The decor was rustic chic, not corny, schmaltzy. And, the kitchen was wonderfully equipped with everything you’d need to feel right st home. And, the Mountain View’s-possibly the best in the Smokies! The road is nicely paved with very easy access to the cabin.

TimberTops is great. NO issues with the broker of the rental cabin. We did feel the cabin was getting really worn down and dated. The sleeper sofa is horrible, the curtains, lampshades, decorations are dusty, dirty and dated. We love this cabin and have stayed here many times over the years, but think we will try another one next time. The cabin needs freshening and updated a little bit. The TV in lower level bedroom fades in and out all of the time, most of the time unwatchable. The bedding for the sleeper sofa was stained--unwashed. ewwwww The cabin has tons of potential, but seems neglected. The furniture is broken down and faded making it feel dirty and uncomfortable. We hope the owners take the comments as constructive critiz. Thrilled though to see that this little place made it through the horrible fires 2 yrs ago.

What an amazing view! My husband and I spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon here and our only regret was not staying longer! The cabin was clean and had everything we could need. The keyless entry was great since we didnt arrive until late the first night, it was so convenient to simply head straight to the cabin. We are already looking to book for our anniversary trip next year. I cannot rave enough about Timber Tops, especially High Expectations! My only suggestion for future guests at this cabin or the few right next door - (Swingin from a Star) the roads in Gatlinburg can be a bit confusing and since you cannot GPS the cabin, there is a little cafe right before the road to turn up the mountain called Apple Annies - GPS there instead of going from the main office, it was so much easier!

Chalet was excellent, very nicely kept and great amenities. Our group has rented chalets in Gatlinburg for 24 years now. This was the first time that someone called us to let us know the chalet was ready for us to check-in. Outstanding customer service.

Overall we really enjoyed the cabin! It's very spacious with a very nice view. We were really impressed with the beds - they are very comfortable, and the linens were great! We took advantage of all the amenities the cabin has to offer, and I like the separate living spaces. The downstairs bedroom is enormous! All that said, there are a few opportunities for improvement that I'd like to pass on: 1) There was an odor in and around the downstairs bathroom and washer/dryer. It had a bit of a septic quality to it, and if this cabin were mine, I would want to take a look at the septic tank. Perhaps it just needs to be pumped, but I would honestly recommend looking into this. 2) The sectional downstairs in the theater room has some aspects that are very worn, and just not comfortable. I think it likely needs replaced. 3) We found a broom, but no dustpan. Overall, these are minor complaints (though I really would look into the septic situation there) for an otherwise great cabin. In fact, I think this is our favorite cabin we've ever stayed in, and we'll likely rent it again in the future.

I loved that we could email and fax things and never had to drive to an office for keys and what not. Generally any calls were quickly answered and helpful.

Cabin was well maintained and everything ready. One issue was that, on our way out of the cabin, I looked around to make sure we did not forget anything. I found one beer can and a few coke cans in the small refrigerator in the game room. This should not have been there! And I did not notice it or look when we arrived. The kids were staying downstairs and it was not appropriate to have this.

Everything went great. Great cabin, great condition. The only thin I had requested was a remote location. When I booked the booking agent to me it was a remote are with no other cabins around it. There was a cabin within a stones throw of the cabin.

quick and easy check in at new office. Cabin was ready early, no issues going directly to it. I have recommended in the past to friends and family members. Thanks again for the wonderful stay.

The cabin and experience was very good. We had two issues (deadbolt had to be replaced and the dryer had to be repaired) but they were both handled very professionally. I did have one concern that I disagreed with the way that timbertops handled it. I originally booked 5 nights and considered the 6th but my schedule did not allow it so I told them to just put us down for the 5. My thought was that maybe timbertops could rent it and I was ok with that. My schedule did allow, at the last minute, to come a day early. I called and the cabin was available but I had to pay half price. I asked the lady about this and she said it was policy. I understand having policies but I also understand fairness and customer appreciation. I was ok with timbertops renting the night if I couldn't come but you weren't ok with letting me have my night (that should have been free). Again I was satisfied with the cabin and service (as I have been many times) but how this is handled will determine if I stay with timbertops again. Heath Hughes.

As always, an overall great experience. One thing we experienced at this log home and a couple previous ones is that the TV and components / remotes seemed to have been adjusted by prior renters and it was very frustrating having to try to reconfigure whatever they did. I'd recommend that these be checked prior to new rentals just to make sure they all work correctly so that it is not an inconvenience for the new renter. We have always rented from you for years and will continue. Thanks for striving for quality and service!

Timber Top Cabins are great.. reservations, payment and checking into Our cabin was easy with no problems. Our cabin was clean and beautiful. The area was quiet and we felt very safe. It was a easy drive up to Our cabin(High Expectations) with no steep hills. Our whole experience with Timber Tops was perfect:)
