This program entitles our guests to one free adult admission ticket, per night stay, to attractions like Ripley’s Aquarium, WonderWorks, Mama's Farmhouse, Rowdy Bear Coaster, and more.

Beautiful location, quiet, clean and relaxing v
The location was beautiful clean and easy to locate. Close to pigeon forge and gatlinburg locations and that was a big focus. We had a wonderful stay.
would love to have a restaurant on property.
The tv didn't work. We knew there wouldn't be any wifi and that was fine. Apparently, the tv hasn't worked in quite a while by the looks of the guest register. We told the desk staff the first day, never heard anything - tv was not fixed during our stay. If you have zero intentions on fixing it just remove it from the list of amenities. The living room furniture is so uncomfortable we could barely sit through a rented movie. The cabin could be great. It was clean. Bed/pillows were comfortable. Property is beautiful. The pool/lodge area has stunning views. The back deck is a great spot to read a book and listen to nature. We won't be returning to this cabin though.
excellent communication. friendly people. Good experience all around!
Heat did not work. Cabin was freezing. Shower in the bathroom was very small. No cell phone reception on the mountain and no internet. Pull out bed in the living room was very uncomfortable. You could feel every spring. This was an expensive cabin and we actually ended up leaving for the 2nd night and spending the night in a hotel for $50! Wish I would have just booked the hotel for both nights.
We had absolutely no TV or internet!!!
Terrible. Went to office. Technician came and could not help us.
The cabin was well equipped and close to the exit--not way up the hill with all the twists and turns! My son was at the top of the hill and WOW! That was a trip! But both places were just lovely.
We truly loved our stay. The only thing we were expecting was the TV/satellite to work. It did not. Completely fine, we just wish we would’ve known prior so we could’ve brought some movies with us! We loved our little getaway!
Really enjoyed our honeymoon in the mountains! Wow what an amazing experience! Thanks Natural Retreats!
Easy to book, great customer service when needed, cabin was clean, expectations were clear.
Brianna, Tracy and the entire staff went over and beyond to accommodate any issue that arose. They are polite and professional! Cabins are conveniently located for an amazing getaway.
The home was nice, the view was amazing, however we did not have cable or wifi and we were expecting to have both. Thats the only thing I would have changed.
The overall experience in the cabin was good. We did like the off the grid and the remoteness. The kitchen pots/pans need to be replaced since the handles are very loose and difficult to cook with.
Tracy is an amazing host. She went out of her way to help us have a great stay. I am a diamond member for Hilton and she surpassed any experience I’ve ever had. She even purchased a foam pad for the bed because it was not very comfortable. We had a vehicle break down and she helped us work through that as well. She is simply amazing
Beautiful and cozy cabin. Great location with beautiful view.
It was nice and relaxing and a very clean and secluded spot. Loved my week stay here 😁
Cabin was clean and had everything we needed to help make our visit enjoyable
We had a Very clean and private cabin! It was perfect for an unplugged weekend gateway!
Peaceful and a great getaway!
We stayed in this cabin in July for a week. It was so peaceful! No cell service and no tv. Sometimes you need to unplug to enjoy yourselves and that’s exactly what we did. The kids colored and played games instead of looking at a screen. We had a blast! There were some DVD’s there that was funny. Everything you needed was there except laundry detergent. Kitchen and bathroom was stocked. Back porch was very nice in the morning. Good and cool and so quiet! Queen bed in bedroom was a little hard for me and pull out was very uncomfortable. The pullout probably needs replaced. The kids slept on it so it wasn’t too bad for them. Cabin was very clean and Everything else was great! We would stay there again!
Simple and nice
We stayed in July for a family wedding. The cabin was just what we needed for our family of 4 for a couple days. Overall cleanliness was good, but lots of dust in the ‘out of sight’ places, ie. top of refrigerator & shelves dishes were on. If you plan on doing laundry, stuff takes forever to dry. They advertise a pull out sleeper sofa. However, it is very uncomfortable & you can feel the springs, so don’t plan on sleeping on it. Minus those few things, it was a great little cabin. The grounds at Brother’s Cove are breathtaking! You are truly in the mountains and have beautiful views throughout.
Visited for a wedding in May. Had a good time but the lacking maintenance outside made the cabin look very creepy.
Nice sit up!
Celebrated my 50th birthday!! The cabin was very comfortable. Needs a little TLC. Would have loved to have Wi-Fi but was sort of nice having to disconnect. Would love to come back when the pool is available.

second time to visit this cabin, wonderful getaway, very private
Had the BEST time on my birthday vacation to the cabin. The staff especially Mr. Carnes and Ms. Alex, they brightened our vacation completely!! Perfect place for a get away, no wi-fi, no service, and a hot tub!!
My husband and I visited the end of October for a wedding and had a great time. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed.
Although the cabin was very nice and comfortable, we had several issues that we were not happy about. The first issue was that the propane tank was empty and because the maintenance man was not on site, was required to go pick up new tank at the office at the bottom of the mountain. Next issue is that the sheets on the bed had a large urine stain indicating that the sheets were not changed before our arrival. Brought the issue up to the staff and they blamed housekeeping. Is housekeeping not part of the staff. Third issue was that although we were advised that the Direct TV was not in service at our arrival (Monday), it would be resolved the following day (Tuesday). It was not resolved till Thursday.
The cabin was so peaceful! It was very clean and cozy and we enjoyed the hot tub. Always enjoy our stay at Brother's Cove.
We needed a few nights away from reality. Had a wonderful time. There's so much to do and see in the area, but we spent the majority of our time just relaxing here in the cabin!
Came for a wedding, which was beautiful in the gazebo.
Very quiet and relaxing

Amazing, relaxing vacation!
Everything about this place surpassed my expectations. The cabin was beautiful. The staff were so friendly and helpful and responsive. The property is phenomenal - stay in a small cabin in the woods without seeing another cabin. Then. drive up the mountain and experience the views. Best pool ever - swim with the most amazing mountain views!
