We did not notice that there was no common area access to any bathroom in the house until sometime after making our reservation. This made bathroom use after bedtime difficult for the parents who slept on the sofa beds to access the bathroom without waking sleeping children in the bedroom. A note pointing this out may be helpful to anyone who may be in the same situation we were. This was our ONLY issue with Hickernut. Loved the house.

I would highly recommend using Patriot Getaways to anyone. Our cabin was perfect. It was clean and had all the amenities you would need. I did have to call the office for the code to check in and to check out due to the automated system not working but th at was fine. Things like that happen. I have nothing but good things to say. Thank you for making our vacation/wedding week fantastic!

This is our 2nd yr. staying in an American Patriot Getaway cabin. Both times I have called my experience with the staff has been great! We had an issue with one of the showers, the maintenance person came and fixed it. He got a cleaning person to come an d clean the shower after he fixed it. We truly enjoyed our time there and plan to book again for next yr.

The overall state of the cabin was awesome, when we arrived all the worry of where we were staying was quickly made a non issue when the cabin was entered. Everything was clean, well stocked and beautifully decorated. The cabin made our family experience t he best week for our celebration. It was easily located to access everything that we wanted to in the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge area. Not having to worry about where we were staying made the trip awesome. Thank you for making our stay memorable. Please chec k a small leak in the ceiling of the bedroom right next to the kitchen and also a couple of the seats in the movie room where loose and or broke, otherwise the cabin was awesome!

This was perfect for our large family. Hickernut Lodge was everything we expected and more. The cabin was clean when we arrived and we were given plenty of the essentials to start our stay. We will definitely be using Patriot Getaways for another vacation. Thank you for helping to make this Christmas memorable and special.

By far the cleanest cabin we have stayed at to date! Beds were comfortable and the rooms were perfect size. The 3 different family rooms were a plus for girls and guys Bible studies each night. There were enough activities and Tv's to keep everyone entert ained. The kitchen was well supplied and even enough and extra toiletries which no other cabin has. Thank you for a great place to stay...we will be renting from you all again!

We stayed in the Hickernut Lodge and WOW can't even begin to describe our experience. We had 5 couples and our driveway held 6 cruiser motorcycles, 1 car, one extended bed quad cab pick up and 14ft enclosed trailer. When I called and told the customer rep what I needed he really came through for us. All paved roads and paved level driveway for the bikes. The cabin was beautiful and clean and had every amenity you could ask for. The theater room was awesome and we took full advantage of it. Two big kitchen t ables easily fit our 10 people. I just cannot say enough about how great our experience was and we will be back. We have used Patriot Getaways on three different occasions now at three different cabins and have had great experiences at all of them. Plus be ing a Marine I like supporting a company called Patriot Getaways.

This trip was with our church youth group and the kids had a blast! The cabin was very clean, in great condition, and all around wonderful. We had an unusual warm weekend for the time of year and we didn't have air for 1 1/2 days on the main floor but it w asn't too bad. But the CSR and the owner made it top priority to get it fix, and they did just that. It was a wonderful stay. We will stay again!!!

Our group had a wonderful time at Hickernut Lodge. Family from Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida gathered there and had a great visit. There is lots of room for a large group. I highly recommend a stay at Hickernut Lodge!!

The cabin is awesome! This is the third time using Patriot for a cabin and we were not disappointed. Definitely bring larger skillets though if you think you will need it. We cooked most meals there instead of going out and had a large group. But overall, we had a great time and will absolutely use Patriot Getaways again!

Very nice floor plan and layout, great value for what you get. Had a grill out each night and enjoyed the wooded view. Only issue would be the basement shower door was off the hinge. Overall great experience!

The staff at APG were wonderful from finding a cabin to changing the date. Always friendly, I never felt like any question was too much and that they would help with whatever. I definately would rent again thru APG. Our cabin (Hickernut) was great as fa r as accomadations and things to do. The layout was perfect. They also had everything we needed in the kitchen and was pleasantly surprised by how roomy it was. I will say the cabin floors needed a good sweeping but overall it was clean on the surface. Thank you for a most wonderful time with my family.

My family and I were very pleased with Hickernut Lodge. Any issues we had were promptly taken care of. The owner of the cabin actually called me to make sure any problems were taken care of and told me to call him directly if we needed anything else. We would stay in this cabin again and would definitely use American Patriot Getaways again. Staff and cabin owner were great! Again, very impressed!!!

When we first arrived the air hockey table wasn't working and blinds on back door was broken. However when I calle someone was sent out to fix the problems on the first day. Table was fixed and he took measurements for blinds. It was very spacious and well equipped for our group of 17. Everyone enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks for making our stay in the Smokies great.

The cabin was wonderful and my family really enjoyed our stay. A couple of suggestions that would make the cabin even better is blinds on the doors that lead to the hot tub and a recliner for people with disabilities.

This was our first stay in any cabin in Pigeon Forge. We have always stayed in one particular hotel and were a little hesitant to stay anywhere else. Those doubts were put to rest with our stay in Hickernut Lodge. The cabin was absolutely spotless and w as gorgeous throughout! We will definitely be staying in another Patriot Getaway cabin. The entire process was very easy from start to finish. Thanks for making our weekend getaway so effortless and enjoyable!!

The container for the trash bags needs to be bigger or there needs to be more of them. We had probably 4 bags more than what could fit in the box and the raccoons were all over them outside! The cabin was amazing and we were EXTREMELY pleased.
June 17, 2011 - Website

by Andrew Griffin
We had 17 people in the house. We all loved it. The only downside was the crafty racoons that kept getting into the trash outside. I had to make two different calls to have housekeeping empty it and on the second day they did. Other than that we would definitely stay again.

We had 11 people in the cabin & had a lot of room for everyone. The cabin was beautiful, just like the pictures on the website. The Oaks is a very nice little community. We would definatly stay at the Hickernut Lodge again.

This was a wonderful cabin to have all of our family come together at for the holiday! The only downside being that we could have used a bigger kitchen given the number of people. Maybe 2 ovens to cook Thanksgiving dinner, lol. However, if not going at suc h a food-centered holiday, then the kitchen is just right. 🙂 The gaming areas were great for keeping the kids entertained.
