... face-to-face unless you go out and meet someone new, and even though this may be easy for some it still takes up your time.
When I created a profile on the website, similar to Facebook, people who have similar interests to you almost get to know you ahead of time so by the time you arrive it is like meeting an old friend. That is how it was with Colleen, from the time I arrived to the time I left, our conversations seemed to flow ...
Day 1 - Friday night, we drove from spartanburg to gatlinburg and arrived at the river terrace. It was lightly snowing on our ride up and was it was still snowing when we got to gatlinburg. We got to our room and then went for a walk to get ice cream. We got back to our room for some nice fireside time and relaxing. Day 2 - Saturday we woke up late, had some pop tarts and researched for going to ober gatlinburg. After riding up ...
... head home on Saturday. The weather here has been crazy cold - not unlike the cold that the north has been experiencing, but God - I'm 775 miles south of Toronto and like they say here in Tennessee - "it's colder that a witches tit in a brass bra laying face down in the snow". The long term plan is for it to warm up over the next couple of days, but unlike Ontario - the schools have been closed now for three full days and the roads are dry - it's just "too cold". It's day 35 since ...
... her old house in Kingston and then on to my grandparents place of birth - Oliver Springs, TN. Coincidently this was also where Deborah's daughter went to high school - it was pretty weird that while I looked for information on my family's history at the local library, she was able to find Keli's yearbook from the year she graduated high school. It must really be fate that Deb and I hooked up, except there is a distinct possibility that we could be related now that I read some ...
... Jym enjoyed his comic shops and actually found some things he was looking for. We then came back to the hotel and I took a small nap. I am exhausted. I did not sleep well last night at all. I have not been able to relax at all on this vacation. I am just wound so tight and every time I turn around some other bad thing is happening.
So we check in and before my nap I am unpacking in the room and notice there is food stuck onto ...

Historical Traveler Reviews MountainLoft Resort Gatlinburg
Overall an ok place to stay
We stayed at MountainLoft during our Spring Break and had a relatively
nice time. Due to the rainy days we were limited to many of the
activities that we had scheduled, however, we made the best of it. The
resort did have a few things planned however, they also were limited in
what they could do due to the weather. Overall, it was a nice change of
pace. I would return to this resort during a different time of the
year. One major concern that we did have was for the cleanliness of the
I did mention it to the staff and asked to have them clean the room again for us.
We are members of the Blugreen Resorts and from our own point of view and the comments that we have read at this web site gives us very mixed feelings about referring Mountain Loft to our friends and family. We have stayed at Mountain Loft only once, and I was terribly dissapointed. The couch was badly stained, the microwave busted up, the dishwasher did not work, the door trim in lower bedroom was badly damaged. The carpeted floors were very dirty and it was obvious that the bedspread had not been washed in quite a while. It was very dirty, we did not want to sleep under it. The bathtub was dirty and you could wipe a paper towel over it and it turned black. We did not even feel clean using the shower. All adds indicated it was a 5 star, but it was not.
Terrible stay with mountain loft resort
I agree mountain loft is a very dirty place to stay. We tried to stay there, but we were so upset about the condition of our room, that we left
mountain loft is a wonderfull place to stay, it is so pretty! we have stayed three times and every time it is peacefull and gorgous....unbeleiveable...you would not regret staying here! it is the best!!!
Always a nice trip
My family and I are on our third trip here and are very pleased with the accomidations . We are a Blue Green Owner but this is not our home resort . It gives you the feeling of seclusion without the drive .
I come back here every year for a reason! ! !
Since 2000, I began a tradition with my daughter who is 10, by bringing her to Mountain Loft every year, the week of Thanksgiving. We shop together, and have a great time. There is a reason we keep coming back to Mountain Loft.... and not only she and I vacation there. My husband and I come for a romantic getaway at least one long weekend of the year. It's perfect. We have never had any problems, other than not having time to stay longer than we want! The staff there are wonderful.
They go out of their way to make the trip fabulous. In fact, we are leaving day after tomorrow to go back! I can't wait to get there, and I know I never have to worry about my accomodations! I'll never stay in a roach motel again!...... and yes... I became a Bluegreen owner.
Nice to get away
We were looking for a nice gettaway and found it at mountain loft we really enjoyed being alone without tons of people around.
the unit was too small. the carpet was badly stained.It had not been dusted.The bedspread was filthy.I was very uncomfortable.
We made reservations thinking this was a 5 star resort. It is more like a 2 or 3 star. Room was not vacuumed. Daughter killed a spider in the bathtub, so it had not been cleaned. Found easter eggs and candy wrappings under diningroom table. Bedspread was very faded and full of lint balls. We were so disappointed we didn't even unpack. When we notified management we were displeased and wanted to leave this room; they refused to put us in another room and didn't refund our full payment. This was a $159 + tax room per night and it was compariable to a $69 room. We went to the Gatehouse condos for $150 per night and got 2 full bedrooms, 2 baths, full size kitchen with marble kitchen countertops, cherry cabinets, wet bar, and a total of 1400 sq. ft. of luxury with covered parking. That's a 5 star room!
Several trips to Mt. Loft
We have been a Mt Loft owner sence 4/87, our 10th Anniversary. We have taken several trips and had a great time, EVERYTIME. I like the privacy for each unit, you feel like you are alone in the mountains, but have great neightbors you meet at the club house, if you would like to. It is close to town, and on a main highway, we have gone several time in the winter, and have no fear of being snowed in.
