Elk Springs Resort is a luxury cabin resort in the Arts and Crafts Community area of Gatlinburg. They offer 1-5 bedroom log cabins, which can sleep up to 15 people. The cabin designs are all unique, so Elk Springs doesn't have that cookie cutter look you get with many resorts.

Some of the notable features at Elk Springs include gently graded roads, a selection of pet friendly cabins, a large flat parking area for motorcycles and their trailers, free wireless internet, gas fireplaces and gas grills, plus numerous luxury amenities.
