Excellent Private Birthday Celebration

The view was wonderful. My wife and I celebrated her birthday at the Bear Den cabin and it instantly became one of our favorites. Jeremy from the staff was very available and helpful. I had a slow leak in my tire and he was there to help me refill the tire before checkout. I would recommend this cabin for couples for the view, the accommodations and it's cozy size.

When we first entered the cabin, we were a little disappointed! Your pictures showed to be a much bigger cabin than what it was. Photographer did a good job (Photoshopped)! The view is breathtaking! Very comfortable bed, quiet, away from it all and you can hear the creek flowing during our stay, very peaceful! You're 13 min. East from Gatlingburg (which we didn't mind)! Would we stay again, you ask? Definitely!! Two thumbs up!!

Bear Den definitely has a fantastic mountain view, and we agree, the sound of the creek flowing is very relaxing. We apologize if you feel anything in the photos was misrepresented.

Very cozy cabin!

The location was perfect. It isn’t right in the middle of town, it’s secluded in the mountains but only a 10 minute drive from downtown gatlinburg! The size was perfect for us and our two children. View from the balconies were beautiful, we cooked at the cabin a lot and the cabin had all the cooking utensils we needed. It was an all around great experience for us, we would definitely recommend this cabin to others!

Bear Den Cabin

Loved it! Great time in and out of the cabin. It was just the right amount of "remote." I appreciated the call after our first day to make sure all was well, and after that we were left to ourselves. A wonderful experience from top to bottom. Enthusiastically recommended!

Cute but difficult staircase

Bear Den was just the right size for two of us. If our son had come with us, it would have been a bit tight. The cabin is pretty but there isn't any storage space for bags/luggage/clothing. The spiral staircase is brutal on the knees after long days of hiking, and it was a challenge to get our luggage up and down too. But as I said, it was sufficient for the two of us. The cabin we loved was lost in the 2016 fire and we aren't used to being so close to the highway. You can hear all the road traffic from the highway at Bear Den. The upstairs view is pretty, and there is no view downstairs but lots of privacy for the hot tub. The washer/dryer was used daily for all of our hiking/cycling clothes. So handy! The location wasn't at all where we thought it was going to be. That was tricky on VRBO.

The Bear Den...great little home away from home!!

The Bear Den was our family's first Gatlinburg cabin experience. It was so much more than we had even hoped for! From the beautiful view of the mountains & cozy living room upstairs to the master suite downstairs...we loved it all!! We enjoyed the pool table & hot tub. The soft luxury linens were a nice touch as well. The cabin was very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg & so easy to find. The staff was great. They even called to check on us after we arrived to see if we needed anything. The cabin was immaculately clean! It had everything we needed. The beds honestly were some of the most comfortable we've ever slept on (& we own a furniture business so we've tried several brands of mattresses)!! We look forward to our next Smokey Mountain getaway. We would love to stay at the Bear Den again!!

Beautiful as Always!!!

This is our second time at Bear Den. As always, the facilities were lovely and the people who maintain the property were attentive and helpful. The view from the cabin is spectacular and has plenty of room for two people. It's a short drive the nearest store, and a short drive from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Couldn't complain about a thing!
