While driving to Tennessee, I got a call on my cell from the management at Brother's Cove, checking to see when we planned to arrive and if we knew where to go. I also received an email in the same vein - have never had that happen before. They answered my few questions and when we arrived were very nice.
We headed over to our cabin, Creekside Oasis #3. It took a couple tries to get the hang of the electronic lock (no keys), but we got it down. Walked in and everything was as good as we had hoped. I had looked at reviews and pics online, and we were not disappointed. The beds were comfy, the kitchen had most of what we needed. There were two coffee pots - a drip brew and a Keurig. We didn't have measuring cups or spoons and we let them know in the office and when we came back from a day out, a new set of each was on the counter. The cabin came with a starter supply of kitchen and bath items (soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, etc). It was not enough to last our whole stay, but a good starter.
Our unit had three bedrooms, two baths. There was a wrap around porch with chairs and a charcoal grill. On a lower deck we had a hot tub and in the yard next to the creek a swing and couple of chairs by the firepit. The creek was usually just a trickle, except after a good rain.
The cabin was clean. Some things a bit worn, but still very comfortable. There were some bugs here and there, mostly spiders - as expected for a cabin in the woods. I did have an "incident" with a big old millipede that I stepped on at night with my bare foot, but that gave us all a good laugh once we got it relocated outside.
The driveway to get in is steep (it is a mountain after all) and going around and down to leave even more so. But we got accustomed to that. The pool is up another level and I will be honest and say I did not enjoy the ride up there (not a fan of heights). We met another family with a cabin higher up the mountain who said the view was gorgeous, but that next time they would choose a spot lower down that did not require them to keep driving up and down the narrow winding road - they were from Illinois too, so also not used to that kind of driving. Our driveway was at a decent angle and roomy - some of the units were not as lucky.
There was a washer and dryer in the unit that we gave a lot of use to. The dryer usually need to run another cycle to get things dry, even though we made sure the lint trap was cleaned each time. We had Direct TV - it did NOT include local channels which was a little disappointing as we wanted to watch the news and the Olympics in the evenings and could not. The WiFi worked OK - less so when all 5 of us connected at once. It did go out when there were storms in the area. There was no WiFi the first night, but we let them know (when we told them about the measuring cups) and it was fixed when we got back for the day.
We were about a 20 minute drive from Pigeon Forge - it was a pleasant drive and nice to be close enough to everything without being in the middle of the hustle and bustle.
All in all, I would highly recommend Brother's Cove, and Creekside Oasis in particular (units are individually owned, so may not all be on the same level).

Day four we headed to Cades Cove. We went early in hopes of seeing more wildlife and avoiding crowds. We saw a couple of deer right off and another one a little further in as well as some turkey. No bear sightings though - just missed a couple of times - cars backed up in front of us but the bears were gone by the time we made our way there.
Day three began with the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail in Smoky Mountains National Park. It was beautiful. Very interesting to see some of the historic buildings and imagine living there. We were going to visit the Sugarlands Visitor Center, but were running late because a certain boy did not want to get up, so we pushed that to another day. From …
We started day two by going to Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. It really was a beautiful aquarium (see review below) - much more than expected. We spent a few hours there checking things out (see photos), then crossed the street and had lunch at No Way Jose's Cantina. We were seated and served quickly and the food was all very good - we had a …
We had about a ten hour drive, so we headed out a little after 6am after a quick breakfast at home. We stopped along the way for a quick lunch at Five Guys somewhere in Kentucky for some pretty good burgers.
We arrived to our cabin at Brother's Cove Cabins and were very happy with our accommodations. We went to dinner at Smoky Mountain …
Our last stop has been Gatlinburg, TN. We enjoyed our visit to the Dixie Stampede and Dollywood. Jim looked all over the place, high and low but never saw Dolly! We ran into the Compton's from Lexington who happened to be here too. We enjoyed having dinner together with Ben, Suzanne, Charlie and Nancy. It was nice to have friends to enjoy a meal with again.
It will be wonderful to be back in South Carolina even though there will be lots of changes from ...
