Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The bed was very uncomfortable needs replaced it dips in the middle. The cleaning person didn’t do a great job. Toothpaste splashes in the mirror, dust all over the side lamps close to the bed. A huge cobweb with a spider greeted us at the front entrance. It’s like nobody ever stays here. It’s very sad as it was a very nice cabin and it has so much potential if they just market it a little better for people to stay after going to the vineyard. A dead mouse was on top of the fireplace. Not sure how the cleaning staff missed this?? Talk about gross! Also didn’t feel safe as none of the side entry doors lock. Anyone can walk into the home if they wanted/ all the bedroom doors seem cheap and they do have locks but could early be kicked in. I didn’t get a goods night sleep here.

We booked the lodge for two night for our honeymoon (Tuesday-Wednesday). Upon arriving to the lodge, we struggle to find where we were to go. Once we got to the lodge to check in, we were told we would not be at the lodge, but at a separate house. In the refrigerator was a mason jar of orange juice, a mason jar of milk, and other assorted bagged pastries that we were told would be our breakfast! This was our honeymoon. If there was no breakfast, why did they say they are a bed and breakfast?? There were no restaurants anywhere around, and were told the vineyard had no food. We drove half an hour to find a place to eat. Once we ate, we drove by the Vineyard and found out they did have sandwiches to eat. It would have been nice to not have to drive so far, when we had drove most of the day to get to the lodge. The next day, we did go to the Vineyard, and it was very nice. We ate dinner there as well. During our entire stay, we never saw anyone to ask about our stay or if we needed anything. When we went to the lodge to check out, the lodge was locked.

We reserved Tuesday 9-15 for one night. When we drove up, it was very confusing as to where to check in. We ended up at the winery/restaurant and they told us where to go. I am writing 2 different reviews (one for the winery and one for the lodge as they have 2 different ownerships). The winery was very nice. The lodge was also nice. The door was unlocked so we walked in. No one was there so I called the number on my reservation. Holli was very nice and professional. She told us what room was ours, the code to the door and that there would be no other guests that night - just us. It was clean enough - just little things were off. The hair dryer hardly worked, there were only 2 towels and no where to get more, duct tape holding on to some pipe outside for the air conditioner. The deck needed a good cleaning. I heard great things about the breakfast, but due to low occupancy - there was a breakfast basket in the fridge. I thought that was ok. You could not use the stove/oven unless you booked the entire cabin. We purchased a pizza for dinner from the winery. We put it on the kitchen counter and went outside to enjoy some wine. When we came back inside to eat the pizza, we opened the box and it was full of ants and small roaches. It was so gross! We wasted $18 on a pizza and there really aren't many more options for dinner on a Tuesday night. The pool table downstairs was a little neglected. There cues were in bad shape. Only one of the darts had a tip on it for the dart board. A few of the outside doors did not lock so that was kinda weird when we went to our room. This could be so nice if if was maintained just a little bit better. We will return to the winery because that experience was very good, but I don't think we will stay overnight again. We met the housekeeper as we were leaving the next morning. She was very friendly.

I purchased the Groupon as our half way point to Pigeon Forge. It is 20 minutes off 75 but easy drive. Very quiet as we stayed on a Monday night with only one other room being used. Vineyard was closed & we left too early for home cooked breakfast but they has a nice basket in the fridge for grab & go but didn't fit into our schedule. Lodge was get clean & comfortable just right for the price of the Groupon. We were given excellent instructions for late check-in & early-check out had to pay the tax which was only $7.11. We went into town of Owenton for dinner at Hometown Pizza which was excellent.

My husband and I stayed in the lodge in the king 6 room for a little weekend getaway. Very nice, large room. Bed was comfortable. Be aware that it can be a bit noisy in the lodge - we could hear furniture being moved, suitcases rolling, etc above us. The common areas are nice with pool table, TVs etc. it was a quiet weekend there, we’d hoped to chat with other guests in the shared spaces but no one was around. Oh well. Still enjoyed our stay. Continental breakfast is a bonus too.

My husband and I decided to try Elk Creek over the weekend. The property was beautiful and the wine was fine, nothing to brag about. The biggest disappointment was the customer service at the lodge. When we can to check in, the woman had no idea what time the winery closed or if we would be able to skeet shoot at the adjoining property. All of the business are connected... how can you not know!? Overall it was a fine visit, but I would not rush back.

My buddy and I shot here last week and thought it was good but not great. First of all we did not realize how far off the beaten track it was from Cincinnati. Also, we had heard so many things about the place we had really high expectations. Unfortunately, high expectations can lead to disappointment. The carts don't even have a place to hold your guns. We were shooting in 90 degree heat and the guns were smoking and you have to hold them as you ride hole to hole. I will say we chose the more difficult course and we should have gone with the intermediate course. The problem was we were looking for a little shade on a hot sunny day. While I will most likely give this place another shot I am not going to rush back.

This was certainly one of my favorite stays ever! It didn't hurt that we completely lucked out as one of only two rooms occupying the huge house that night (full house on our checkout). The place was once the residence of the former owners of the adjacent Elk Creek Vineyards. Rustic hunter decor. The innkeeper sets you up and leaves you in privacy. The shared areas are huge, so it is easy to find the bar, deck, pool room, TVs with game controls, comfortable chairs, beautiful views, etc. We preferred the rear facing (toward the shooting range.....closes early), but the opposite side faces the vineyards. Our room and bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was massive. We had a small bedroom deck too. Breakfast is a simple refrigerator-ed selection of cereal, fruit, etc. that you can eat there or grab to take on the run. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed the night here from a Groupon deal I purchased. We stayed one night and overall had a great experience. The lodge actually exceeded my expectations! It was very well kept and clean and our room was large and comfortable. The only complaint was that you could hear every little noise, but thankfully our neighbors were quiet. It was a very short drive across to the winery, which was lovely. We did the tastings but not the tour. We enjoyed many of the wines they had and brought a couple bottles home. Breakfast in the morning at the lodge was good. My boyfriend loved the omelet and said he was surprised how good it was! It was a nice, relaxing and fun getaway.
