Perfect for our Trip
Dogwood Place was perfect for our family. We loved that each bedroom had its own bath and enjoyed the gas grill and chairs out on the deck. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was very well-equipped, with plenty of dishes for the number of people the cabin accommodates. Having a dishwasher was wonderful.

We are so glad that Dogwood Place was able to nicely accommodate you and your family and that you could take advantage of the gas grill and dishwasher, they are definitely convenient things to have in a vacation home! We hope that you guys will come back and stay with us again on your next trip to Gatlinburg!

Cool Tram Views!
We booked the Dogwood cabin to bring family together from different cities and states. The cabin itself is very comfortable with equal rooms and attached bathrooms that allow for added privacy with big groups. The cabin was very clean and it looked like they made some recent upgrades with new flooring. Very close to the National Park and downtown Gatlinburg.

On the first night, we had a minor maintenance issue. Despite calling in after hours, Mtn Laurel had someone to the cabin to check it out and fixed it within an hour.

The deck is spacious with views of the Ober Gatlinburg Tram Cars. It made for an exciting view when enjoying time outside or in the hot tub. The cabin is clean with comfortable furniture (beds, couches, chairs). The kitchen is well stocked with quality pans and utensils to use for cooking any meals.

Be careful with the driveway as the visibility when coming out is very low. The cabin is located on a curve which makes it impossible to see the cars that are coming from either direction.

Wow Coriana, we are so glad that you were able to enjoy such quality time with family at Dogwood Place. We always want to be good stewards of our guests, so we are glad we were able to to get your maintenance issue fixed for you! It would be fantastic to have you back with us soon!

Mountain Retreat Close to Everything
We had a wonderful week in Gatlinburg and the National Park. The house was as described with a very well-appointed kitchen. Mattresses were extremely comfortable and provided perfect sleep after a day of hiking. Linens and towels were provided, along with soaps for the bathroom and kitchen. Management was courteous, welcoming and quick to respond. They were not kidding about the bears! We had one take a nap in a tree right off the deck and one wander across the deck. We were literally 5 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and the national park. It made for easy planning for meals out and for hikes in the woods. Pool and tennis courts are a bit of a drive from the cottage, but we were so busy in the park, it didn't matter. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend Mountain Laurel Chalets

Cabin review
We loved the cabin. The location was close to town. The layout was great with 4 king size beds. We woke up one morning with a bear eating acorns on the deck and it was so cool! The only negative was the carpet had several stains and looked very dirty. It definitely needs to be updated. Other than that everything else was taken care of.
Anonymous - Posted: 9/26/2021
Thanks for your comment about the carpet. The owner just removed all carpet and installed new floors. I will be ready this week (October 8) so we are excited to see this and other improvements. Photos coming soon.

Fun getaway with family and friends.
House was nice. Close to downtown Gatlinsburg and easy access to Pigeon forge. We were visited daily by the resident bears. House is on a blind corner and tricky to get in and out. There should be two mirrors as you pull out so that you can see in both directions. We had several close calls with traffic pulling out of driveway. Overall we had a wonderful time definitely plan to return.
Anonymous - Posted: 8/14/2021
Thank you for your feedback Bridget! We do apologize for the trickiness of the driveway. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay otherwise, and as you said it is in a fantastic location to enjoy all that both Gatlinburg and Pigeon forge have to offer. We look forward to when you return to Dogwood Place!

Daughter's 30 birthday retreat
My daughter turned 30 and we took a long weekend to Gatlinburg. We loved the cabin! The location is very secluded but still close to the National Park end of town. The beds were awesome - very comfortable. The unit was very clean. We did see the neighborhood bear on our deck when we first arrived. Remember to lock your car as he did try to open the door on my car. He did not even make a scratch - what a thoughtful bear! The pool table was a great addition for my 8 year old grandson. My daughter had a restful time as 2 of her friends surprised her at Bennett's BBQ. Bennett's is one of our favorite places to go. We also had a nice meal at the Park Grill. We visited Ober Gatlinburg - about a 8 minute easy drive up the mountain. The mountain coaster was a great ride for my grandson and the ice bumper boats were a nice addition for our trip. We would definitely rent this unit again. The driveway is a little tricky but very doable.

Wow, it sounds like you all had a fantastic time celebrating your daughters 30th birthday with us in Gatlinburg! We are so glad that you all enjoyed the chalet, and that you got to enjoy a lot of the things that the city has to offer! We would love to see you back with us soon.

Nice cabin with some maintenance needs
We enjoyed our stay ... The info below is for those considering renting the unit and [hopefully] for maintenance considerations.
Good:
1) As a whole, the cabin is in good condition with the standard accommodations.
2) As in other reviews, bear sightings are exciting.
3) Decking is new. So apparently mgt did pay attention to other reviews.

BAD
1) Noise from Ski Mountain Drive.
2) Noise from Furnace is loud
3) Rodents in the walls (noise in walls in downstairs bedrooms is loud)
4) Dishwasher is loud.
5) Though we did not use it, the BBQ Grill is inoperable. The bear knows how to take out the grease pan (we watched him), and upon inspection after the fact ... noted that there are no guts to the unit! (Might as well get rid of the tank)
6) Pool table rug needs fixing (velcro tape will work!). This is in other reviews as well. It IS a trip hazard. (Mgt: This could lead to larger problem if not resolved)
7) I understand the COVID situation. However, I do not understand the inability to serve your customers by having the office staffed. Hotels can do it. Stores can do it. So can you if you chose to.

Great Cabin
We loved the cabin. I might suggest providing ice cube trays if the ice maker isn't connected.
Anonymous - Posted: 4/12/2021
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay at Dogwood Place. We appreciate the information on the icemaker. It was installed less than a year ago and has been working fine, so we will be taking a look to see what the problem might be. Please call the office if you encounter any kind of inconvience during your stay so our maintenance crew can provide you with excellent customer service. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great cabin, missing a few details
The cabin itself is a perfect combination of the woodsy cabin experience and modern updated amenities. The location was near a road which was a little bit loud but we still enjoyed the beautiful deck. Gas grill did not function properly and we received no response when we inquired about a replacement. Also, there are 2 steps that blend into the deck and are not very visible. Three members of our party fell because they didn't see the steps. This is a huge safety hazard that needs to be addressed. Overall, home was comfy and we had a great time.
Anonymous - Posted: 4/8/2021
Thanks for the review and the good feedback. The information about the deck is especially appreciated. We have ordered safety strips to make that step more visible and are checking on the gas grill. We hope you will remember Mountain Laurel when you plan your next trip to the Smokies.

7.5/10-Convenient & Comfortable Stay
Arrival and check in process with Mountain Laurel was as expected/described. Code entry worked great, no keys which is more convenient for multiple families and at check out. Drive is a bit steep and located in a blind curve, be careful. Parking can easily accommodate 2 vehicles. Drive is shared with another Cottage/Chalet, although still very private. Location was good though, very convenient. It was interesting to watch the Ski Mtn. Rd. hairpin turn traffic from the hot tub and upper deck. Most of the unit has been updated. Pool table and Hot tub are severely showing their age. Agree with the previous review about the rug under the pool table, trip hazard. Nice for each bedroom to have their own private bathroom. All beds are King and VERY comfortable. Water pressure was great until someone turned on a faucet, cutting the pressure in half. Living room furniture was comfortable as well. Dining table comfortably accommodates 8 people. Kitchen was well stocked, except scissors. If you plan to prepare multiple meals, take baggies/tupperware and foil/plastic wrap for leftovers. Looks like the owners are working to extend/replace part of the deck, which is already pretty new. We did not use the grill. Was surprised to find NO cleaning supplies available. You are asked to clean the kitchen prior to check-out, but not provided anything to clean with. Luckily, I brought wipes and that is what I used. Would be nice to have some all-purpose cleaner and a broom. We were provided extra toilet paper and paper towels when we asked, no problem. No real issues during our stay. Would suggest a couple board games or cards, we brought our own though. Rates were the best I found, compared to other 4BR units. Wish there were more pet-friendly properties available. I will check out other Mountain Laurel properties before staying at Dogwood Place again.
Brittney L. - Posted: 3/27/2021
Brittney, thanks for the review and we really appreciate your input. The things you mentioned will be addressed by the maintenance staff. The confirmation form you received lists the things we suggest you bring, including cleaning supplies and plastic wrap, etc. We do not leave any chemicals in the house for the safety of young children. As for cleaning the kitchen, discarding food, loading the dishwasher (detergent is provided) and taking out the trash is really all we expect. There should have been a broom and a mop in the house. That will be addressed by the housekeepers. Thanks again for your comments as they are very helpful to both our staff and future visitors of the cabin. We hope to see you again soon.

Enjoyed our stay.
When we arrived I’ve we surprised and pleased to find that all of the beds were king sizzle. The description we read was 3 queens and 1 king. Very nice that each bedroom had its own private bath. The beds were comfortable as was the furniture. Did not like the rug under the pool table. It hurts your feet and it it curled up and a trip hazard. Honestly, I did expect it to be cleaner, I do not wear shoes in the house nor did my guest. But it felt like the kitchen floor had not been swept or mopped. Luckily I brought disinfecting wipes with me so wiped down all the surfaces assuming if they did not sweep the floors they may not have cleaned the other surfaces. We liked the location as well. We drove two cars and I think parking would have been difficult if we had driven 3 cars as this property really only has space for two vehicles. There is another property that shares the driveway and each property really only has parking space for two. When we arrived We discovered that the gas grill did not have any gas but I called first this Saturday morning and they had maintenance bring us a full tank of gas so the response from the management company was really good. Overall, we all really enjoyed our stay we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

Thank you for your review and we appreciate you letting us know the bed sizes were described wrong on the website. It has been fixed and the floor plan will be revised soon. The homeowner has made so many changes this year, I haven't been able to keep up! We regret if the kitchen floor was not clean and apologize for the inconvenience. Our maintenance and housekeeping staff stand ready to assist you with any issues if you will let the office know. We look forward to hearing from you again.

Can't wait to go back
Description and photos were pretty much spot on. The only difficulty we had was with the driveway. The owners should put up reflectors or some sort of sign at the entrance. It took us 3 tries in the dark to find it. It is VERY DARK at night! Take a flashlight! The rooms could use more blankets as well. Other than that we had a really great time and enjoyed the place!
Karen S. - Posted: 2/11/2021
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed Dogwood Place. Sorry to hear you had trouble locating the property after dark. Being in a curve, it is possible to miss the sign at the bottom of the driveway, especially at night. We apologize for the inconvenience with the bed covers. Due to covid, we need to be able to launder everything on the bed after each guest stay, so we have removed the bedspreads and comforters for the time being. There is one waffle style blanket for each bed, but we are advising guests to bring extra blankets if you are cold natured. All the houses have central heat/air, so the heat can be set to a comfortable level at night. We will be so happy to resume normal operations and open our office so we can greet our guests properly. We look forward to that day and seeing you back again soon.

Loving Dogwood
Everything was perfect but would like to express one concern. You cannot carry big bag down staircase so you have to bring it to outside door. Terrain is very unloved and I was the only one who had the balance to do it out of 8 people. It would be great if some sort of walkway to cement would be done. I do plan to stay there again. I have stayed at all 4 bed 4 bath chalet with Mt. Laurel and this is my favorite.

Cheryl, always good to have you back with us. We really appreciate your suggestion about a walkway. That idea will be passed on to the homeowner for their consideration. We look forward to your next visit.

Dogwood Place
The location was very convenient to Gatlinburg and only minutes from Pidgeon Forge. We saw a bear on the deck the first morning and had bear paw prints on the driver's side of our SUV. The stairs going down to the second level were very steep. If you are older or have health issues, this could be a problem. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and comfortable. The driveway is pretty steep. We also had a leaky faucet in the kitchen. We called and they came out the next morning to fix it.

Perfect Mountain Getaway
This cabin was beautiful and the location was perfect! It was clean, comfy, and had plenty of space. We were so close to the Gatlinburg “strip” but far enough away that it was quiet and peaceful. Having the ski mountain market so close was another bonus. We also got to see a few bears up close and personal, which was so cool!

Great space in the mountains
This four bedroom place had plenty of space for our family of six. Each bedroom with their own bathroom is always nice. The kitchen and eating area was just right. The location worked out, close enough to the pool and tennis courts. Mountain driveways in this area can be steep and difficult, but this driveway was average or better in those terms. If you want to see a bear explore your deck, car, and grill daily for food - this is the place for you! It was a little shocking for our family at first to have the bear right in our business, and we decided to not use the grill or hot tub because of it. Some of the inside could use updating. A musty smell in the basement. Updated sticks and chalk for the pool table are a cheap and simple upgrade that would make playing a little more enjoyable. The TV’s are a little small and outdated compared to what I’m used to in my house, but these are pretty par for the course for rentals in the area. Overall, the price was very competitive and the place was clean and spacious. A short drive from Sugarland Visitor Center, which was a nice place for a Smokey Mountain home.

Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed the location and amenities of the chalet - inside. Those pesky bears sure can make things interesting. The homeowner had just finished remodeling the bathroom prior to your visit, so he is working on updating. I will pass along your comment about the television and make sure the billiard supply are in good shape. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

The drive way was tricky to get into with 12 passenger van other than that it was nice
Steven H. - Posted: 5/24/2019
There is definitely a trip to the driveway. I'm sure you noticed the mirror mounted across the street that enables you to look down the street, but the trick is the look up the street where you can see the road, then wait about 5 seconds to make sure no one is between that point and the driveway. I hear you thought, a 12 passenger van is quite long, but I'm sure you figured it out beautifully, We look forward to your next visit to the mountains!

Dogwood Place
Chalet was clean and comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed. The gas grill was a plus. We only rent from MLC and as usual the staff was helpful and friendly. The only things that I didn't care for was the top deck has a noticeable slope and the dining table was painted black with latex paint. Always felt sticky and dirty, should have used oil based paint. Also one of the bathrooms on top level could use a fresh coat of paint.

Excellent place to stay, would recommend.
The house was very clean upon our arrival. Although not a ton of square footage, the space is used incredibly well and slept 4 couples (8 people) very comfortably - including with everyone lounging around the communal areas. The location is PERFECT. You are right in the middle between Gatlinburg and Ober Gatlinburg - not far at all.

A couple of things that aren't necessarily negative, but are worth noting: the driveway is very steep and has terrible visibility, so don't plan on bringing your Corvette. The dishwasher is pretty awful - not sure if its just a low quality model or if the filter needs cleaning. Warm water and pressure can be lacking when multiple people are using it. The hot tub cannot fit more than 4 people comfortably, but otherwise is solid. Overall, would recommend.

Relaxing get-a-way
I have rented from Mtn. Laurel Chalets many times and I have never been disappointed. This trip was no exception. The cabin was quiet and well furnished. Our stay was relaxing and comfortable. We were close enough to town to do things, but far enough away to be quiet. We will continue to stay with Mtn. Laurel as long as we return to Gatlinburg.

We would stay here again!
We loved this house! It was perfect for our family Thanksgiving getaway as we had 4 adult couples. The private baths in each bedroom are a big bonus and their was plenty of room for relaxing, shooting pool and enjoying the hot tub and fireplaces. The home was very clean and had most things we needed. The kitchen lacked a few standard items but we were able to work around it. This home has not been updated in quite awhile but it was clean and has a great location and the price is extremely reasonable. The driveway can be a bit tricky to maneuver but we would definitely stay here again!!

Second time around!
This was our 2nd trip to TN. We loved the close location to the strip, but also in the beauty of the mountains. The house is spacious and well equipped with all the kitchen necessities. It is however a tad run down with water damage. Not the loveliest bathrooms, but they get the job done. The place was nice enough for us to choose the dance property twice!

Thank you for the review. The chalet is only 1/2 mile from downtown, so very convenient to all the activities on the strip. We will check for water damage and let the homeowner know your comments on the bathrooms. Please give us a call when you plan to return to the Smokies.

Absolutely perfect!
For two adults and five kids...this place was PERFECT. The location was close to town and to the bypass...but felt very cozy and remote. Each bedroom having its own bathroom worked out great. Also the kitchen was well-stocked with the dishes, pots, pans, etc. that we needed. I ALWAYS rent from Mountain Laurel...and I have never regretted it. Their service and their chalets are first rate.

Dogwood Place
We enjoyed our stay at Dogwood Place. There was plenty of room for four couples. It was nice having four bedrooms, 4 baths and 6 tvs. One of our party uses a walker/scooter and it was nice to have bed/bath/living area on one level. The staff at Mountain Laurel Chalets is super to work with! We did have some concerns about the cottage. There was a strong musty smell especially on the lower level. There was only enough water pressure for one person to shower at a time and the bath tubs were slow to drain. Most important for safety, the deck becomes very slippery after a rain and is slow to dry. Also, please continue to warn the guests of the bear who has become extremely used to humans. We returned to the cottage one afternoon to find him lounging on the deck. He was not intimidated by the presence of humans. Don't leave food in your car and don't leave your car unlocked. He had obviously tried to get in our car door! Overall, we had a great vacation stay and would use Mountain Laurel Chalets in the future.
Karen C. - Posted: 5/28/2018
Thanks for taking the time to write such a helpful review. We will get maintenance to address the issues you had and appreciate you bringing them to our attention. Also, we are glad you have learned the drill for dealing with the bears. There is a definite path from the top of the ridge down through the yard and on down the mountain. They can most definitely open car doors, but don't really bother much unless the door closes behind them, then watch out! Glad to hear your group had a good time and we look forward to your next visit.

Good place to stay
Nice location, easy access to town, great staff. Hot tub was clean and ready to go on arrival. Propane tank for BBQ was low but staff replaced it with a new one immediately. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes etc. Cabin is a little older and has some signs of wear which also makes it hard to look spotless even though it was clean. Furnishings were good. Would stay there again.

Birthday Weekend Getaway
My friends and I spent the weekend in this cabin and had a very good experience. The property is very close to the Gatlinburg strip. The cabin itself was nice. We enjoyed the pool table and the hot tub. The only negative things to say is that you do not have a view and there was a few minor cosmetic issues on the interior of the property. Overall, I would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Gatlinburg.

We really enjoyed this vacation. It was our first time traveling for the New Year and it was worth it. The kids were looking for a bear but I had to remind them that bears hibernate in the winter. It was so fun watching them look though. The cabin was in a great location, it was clean, and had more than enough room to accommodate us. Thank you so much for helping to make out New Years great!

Impressive
This cabin was extremely well equipped. The fact that everyone had their own private bathroom was great. My only neutral comment would be that the hot water didn't last very long - considering there are four bathrooms with four showers, a bigger hot water heater would be a good investment. All of the furniture and fixtures were in great condition, and the beds were very comfortable, except the dining room table (it looked old and worn down). The location was excellent - less than a mile from Gatlinburg, and easy roads to navigate.

Family Vacation
We arrived to check in and were informed that the staff had been trying to call(we had used our land line so no answer). We were then advised that the chalet that we had booked had a problem and we would not be available but that they had moved us to Dogwood Place. We were told you wont have the view that the other chalet had. We signed up got the keys and drove a short way up Ski mountain to the chalet. This was the first time I had stayed this close to town we usually get higher up in the mountains. Everything in the chalet worked as it should. It was clean and I felt that we were taken very good care of. The house didnt have the view but we spend a lot of time in the park and get to see the mountains that way. We have used Mountain Laurel many times over the past 12 years. I was very happy in how we were treated and how they fixed a problem that was not their fault at all. Will be booking with them next time I go to the mountains.

Nice Chalet Close to Shopping and the National Park
We stayed at the Chalet in July of 1995 and stumbled upon it during Spring Break of this year and decided to book it for a before school starts get away - still the same as before with updates mind you! The location is great along with the room sizes plus each bedroom has its own bathroom. The only drawback would be there is no view of the mountains from this location, you do feel as though you are in a tree house. We like the close proximity to Gatlinburg Shopping and Dining as well as the Park entrance.

Bear in the driveway!
Our family had a great time. There was enough space for everyone. We had 6 adults and 1 child. There's a notebook of information in the cabin and one of the things in there is what to do if you see a bear. We made jokes about how we wouldn't see any bears. Well, at dusk on the first night my husband looked out the kitchen window and sure enough, a bear walked by the steps leading to the driveway, walked by our cars, checked the secured trash cans (which were empty) and walked on down the driveway! We were all in shock! It was one of the neatest things watching that bear walk so closely by our cabin. Had we been in the hot tub at that time we would have been bear soup! We definitely watched out for them the rest of the trip. The cabin was really nice but it was more of a house than a cabin. But the pictures made that really clear. We only had one issue - one of the upstaris bathrooms leaked into one of the downstairs bedrooms. It wasn't too messy though. We simply told the rental place about it when we left which was when we noticed it. No other issues. It also says you're not allowed to grill at the house per city ordinance but there's a grill out by the driveway. One last thing, the house is in a very woodsy area but it's RIGHT above a sharp curve in the road. When it rains the curve gets very loud because it makes tires spin going up the hill. Plus you hear all the loud motorcycles go by. This cabin house is great for if you want to go in and out of Gatlinburg and be close to the park entrance and you're not looking for a remote cabin experience. We would totally rent this house again though and highly recommend it! OH and it has several smart TVs with Netflix right on the remote! And Wifi but we didn't use it.
