A great place to stay!
Everything was wonderful! Pictures don't do this home justice. Location was great, convenient to shops and attractions. Soley is very responsive when you have an issue or just have a question. Communication is clear and concise. Easy to follow check in and check out instructions. Highly recommend!!

GREAT location, CLEAN cabin, VERY spacious - WOULD RENT AGAIN!
We fully enjoyed our stay here at Hakuna Matata in Sevierville/Pigeon Forge. We would absolutely rent this place again. It was clean, spacious, and full of relaxation and entertainment for the whole family. The owners were very kind, gracious, and responsive. We didn't find coffee filters the first morning, and the owners received a call from us and kindly dropped them by the porch for us that day. Pigeon Forge has so much to do, we could have stayed another several days and not been bored. The resort was very well taken care of, and beautiful. Highly recommend!

Excellent experience
My brother and I brought our youth group and we loved it! Our only complaint was that the pinball machine was not working. We're already thinking about bringing them back there next year to stay!

Christmas in the Mountains
We spent Christmas at this charming cabin in the woods! The property was spotless! Our girls loved the hot tub on the deck and the outdoor TV. Very comfy and great location. Close to town but out of the traffic! The owners were amazing to deal with. Great experience!

Hakuna means NO Worries!
Our group of 11 had a very comfortable stay in this cabin. Kitchen was well equipped. Cabin was clean and orderly! (the Christmas decorations were an added bonus to our holiday trip)
Check in process was a breeze! Will definitely use them again.

Exceptionally comfortable
Beautiful, fun and comfortable.
Aug 2019
Everyone enjoyed the cabin. The pictures were as accurate as promised. The only draw back was going to the cabin in the dark. We rode for a while until we found the cabin. I didn't know there was a second gate and our cabin was close to the gate. We went to Dollywood (our yearly visit) and the Island. We also shopped, something we do every year.

Pleasant cabin ... wooded surroundings ... no mountain views
Overall a pleasant stay. Grandkids loved the games & hot tub. One issue ... the HIGH chairs and HIGH dining table were difficult to impossible for my wife (75 years old) to sit at.

No worries
Really enjoyed the game room. Been a long time since I played pinball. Also enjoyed being able to sit in the hot tub and watch TV. The couches in the living room need replacing,a little hard to sit on. We have stayed in a lot of cabins in the area and this one rates among the best. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Family Christmas in the Smokys
Loved this cabin! Perfect for families, loved the game room.
Only thing was you couldn’t use the loft sofa bed it wouldn’t open
all the way up without hitting the bunks which makes it not useable.

Hakuna Matata
Quiet and secluded location. The carpeting in the bedroom needs cleaning and/or replaced. Some minor housekeeping items - but overall, very nice lodging.
Sep 2018
A fun and very friendly environnement
At first we were surprised by the location, we expected something more secluded. The cabin is very close to other cabins but fortunately it is very well located within the compound (end of a road) and the proximity with the neighbors wasn't a problem. The property is very well furnished and provide lots of attractions (games, TVs, jacuzzi, hot tub). Everything was just perfect apart from the bedding which could be improved. Overall a great experience and a good value for money.

Cabin Rental
We had a good time and enjoyed the stay at Hakuna Matata. My wife said she would love to live at Hakuna Matata. I know anyone else would like it too. We travel to the Smokies often and would recommend stay with Soley Clayton's Cabins.

Great family cabin
Comfortable beds. Very clean cabin.Plenty of activities at the cabin and resort complex for the kids.
Feb 2018
It was pretty cool
overall had an amazing experience. the ladybugs however made the entire upper floor no fun. they were EVERYWHERE. my brother was slept on the upper bunk bed and after one night had to move because he woke up covered in bugs. other than that the only issue was the laundry room door does not fully close.

Pleasant Cabin in the Woods
The rental was great the staff did everything they should to meet my needs. They even went out of there way to bring us a baby crib for my 9 month old. The cabin was very clean and beautiful. Only thing is please get better trash bags. It caused a mess lifted it out of can and trash hit the floor. Not a big deal just a recommendation. They are to cheap. But on the upside everything else was perfect. I will be staying at this cabin in the future. I loved the view.

Overall Good Value
The cabin was clean and aside from a warm loft area, all was very comfortable. I'd recommend this cabin. The property management company was well organized and easy to work with.
Aug 2016
Hakuna Matata Cabin
The cabin was adequate for the number of family members. It was clean and well furnished. The location was great as we had no neighbors directly to either side. We had a great time, however the Dish Network issue with the TV was an inconvenience for sure because we were cut off from the news channels while our great state had the worst flooding in over a century and many friends were stranded. The only other negative is cell towers because our cell phones could get no signal at all. Might want to see what can be done about that. Maybe put boosters in the rental units to assist.

Spring break
This cabin was private and fun! My kids loved all the games and kept occupied while mom and dad relaxed. We'd definitely go back. Good location with easy access to anything in Pigeon Forge.

Haikuna Matata Rocks!
It was very cold for this FL couple, but our WV children did very well. The temp in the cabin was easy to operate and always just right. Would love to be there in the Spring or Fall to enjoy the pools. The hot tub was a real "hit".

Great mountain vacation
We enjoyed our stay in this great cabin. We loved the wrap around porch. The kids, as well as the adults, enjoyed the game loft. There was plenty to keep us busy as well as relax. The resort was nice and loved how secure it was. Soley was great to work with while making our reservation.

Excellent Retreat
Everything was in great working order and clean. The owner had several notes on how to use internet, alarm, hot tub etc. Only 5 minutes from Apple Barn restaurant. The pinball machine and video games were a real plus.

Comfortable & Homey, Exactly as Advertised
The Hakuna Matata cabin was an extremely comfortable vacation home that our family found restful and relaxing. The property management team keeps it very clean and well maintained. They are very responsive to the needs of their guests and work tirelessly to provide a pleasant vacation experience. I recommend them highly and will not hesitate to stay with them again.

A Quick Quiet Getaway
Our stay was absolutely wonderful and left us wanting more time to spend in the quiet Smoky Mountains. We were looking for something very different from our normal hotel stay and that is exactly what we got. The property was exceptionally clean and comfortable. It was stocked with all the necessities along with plenty of the luxuries. Our 6 year old thoroughly enjoyed the game room in the loft area and it wasn't so bad for Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa either. Our party of 5 had plenty of room and felt right at home in "our" cabin for the weekend.
The owners are amazing. The reservation process was seamless and extremely efficient. We even received a text from the owner on our first full day there to make sure everything was okay. We will definitely be back!

July 4th Weekend
The property and owners were amazing! It was raining for much of the time we were there and we noticed a leak in the roof. The owner personally came to see where the leak was located and repaired it while we were out sightseeing.
