“Peaceful Cozy Refuge”
Reviewed 28 November 2017 for a stay in March 2017

JT's Jungle was such an amazing place to stay while visiting the mountains. It has a amazing view of the mountain side and is tucked away in it's own corner with lots of privacy. It was a perfect cozy home away from home. Both my girlfriend and I wished we could just live there forever.

Driving back from our adventures really felt like coming home which is a feeling you don't get with hotels and apartment rentals. When you come back after a long day and start driving down the driveway it embraces you with it's warm glow, inviting you to come in and start the fire or relax in the hot tub. It's the perfect refuge from the cold dark silence of the mountain's winter/early spring nights.

I seriously can't think of anything that could be improved on this property. It's exactly what you expect and more. It's the perfect rental. But just a small word of warning, there is a very short but very steep section of road right before the cabin's driveway. Google maps does not do this hill justice, it was a bit of a chug for my weak little 4 cylinder FWD SUV in dry conditions. If it snowed, getting up the hill would have been difficult to impossible for me, but it was worth the risk and I would stay again in a heartbeat.

“The Truth!”

First, the pictures to the cabin, are just teasing! JT's Jungle was very peaceful, and relaxing! Was not hard to find and I enjoyed every moment i was there! It was very cozy and comfortable. Cleaning crew had just left and it has a very clean smell. Ive read other comments about JT Jungle... The Truth, if you are looking for a space to enjoy some relaxing sounds of the birds and view the best artwork that GOD created... Visit SmokyMountains Cabins... JT Jungle was EXACTLY what I needed and was looking for. We were so far away from the world, YET, so Very close to enjoy Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge attractions! Sitting in front of the fire place and then chilling on the back patio/porch was like heaven to me! Thank you! If I could suggest one thing... Make a check list of what you need to survive... yes they had pots/plates/silverware... but no cutting board, coffee filters, A real Knife.... other than that! PERFECT Relaxing Cabin! Will visit again!!! it's a must!!

Thanks for taking time to review your stay with us. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the cabin and the great location. I do apologize that some things were missing in the kitchen. We will have housekeeping get a good knife set and cutting board over to JT's right away. Please come back to visit us again soon!

Somtimes we let life get to busy. This was our first time visiting TN. The atmosphere and hospiatily that we experienced already has us working on plans to make this an yearly trip. JT’s was the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We love everything about it. It was exactly what we needed to just rest and relax with one another. My husband loves to cook, so we took full advantage of the kitchen and enjoyed a delicious anniversary dinner. We enjoyed the hot tub, the fireplace (my personal favorite), and the large jacuzzi. Everything we needed was provided. Thank you for allowing us to make the perfect anniversary memory. Looking forward to many more just like it.

Staying at JT's was everything I had expected, we loved the place. It was very clean and well kept. Very quiet and cozy loved the fireplace and pool table. The bed was very comfortable and clean. It is in a perfect place to either go to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg without a long drive. We would definitely stay here again. Lisa Nipper

“House From Hell”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Upon entry, the house smelled musty, like a hunting camp that was Used once a year. Negatives: nasty smell, no hair dryer, no can opener, no pots, dishes dirty, furniture old,had 1/2 in dust, sofa and chair uncomfortable, bed comfortable but sheets did not fit, very few elec. outlets and they were old, no central air or heat , only old window units and wall heater, fireplace dirty-had not been cleaned in a long time. Bottom line...... STAY AWAY

We thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our JT's Jungle and we're sorry for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay.
If you would have contacted us during your stay we would've sent someone out to address your concerns and show you where the hair dryer and can opener were stored.
Housekeeping was sent out to access the kitchen and make sure it was fully stocked and all dishes are clean.
The cabin has gas heat and new window units for air conditioning which keep it totally comfortable.
We've had several guest at JT's since your stay in December and have had no reports of odor problems, however we will continue to monitor the cabin.
I do apologize that housekeeping overlooked the removal of ashes from the fireplace, again if you would just have given us a call us would've sent someone right out to take care of this.
We appreciate your understanding and hope to see you again soon.
