Beautiful place

Beautiful cabin! The interior was decorated very nice and the view from the living room and the bedroom were to die for! The hot tub and jacuzzi were one of my favorite parts. The location was good. Not too far from downtown Gatlinburg. The place was very clean and kept up. The only problem was that half of one of my days there was wasted waiting on the water to turn back on. It was about a 7 hour wait not being able to take a shower. Other than that, I highly recommend staying here.

Thank you for your wonderful review, Andrea. We are pleased that you enjoyed your cabin stay and we certainly agree the views are spectacular at Bear Den. We certainly apologize that you were inconvenienced while the water was off. Unfortunately, this was out of our hands, as the county was making some repairs. We appreciate your business and hope you will join us again during your next visit to The Great Smoky Mountains. Hurry back, new adventure awaits!

Week long stay - Elk Spring Resorts Cabin

It's difficult writing this review as the trip turned out so badly for us. The cabins appearance was clean, and amenities were great. Unfortunately both my husband and I both sustained large numbers of bedbug bites which didn't appear until about ten hours after checking out. We had so many bites we had to seek medical attention. I had close to 100 on my face and lower arms and my husband had somewhere between 150-200 bites covering his entire body. Although they never returned out phone call, the resort did confirm via an email sent to me they sent in canines and confirmed the infestation. They did provide us with a full refund for our stay, but said they didn't feel covering our medical expenses was warranted since we had the use of a "beautiful cabin for six nights". Whoever sent us that note clearly has never had to deal with the four-fives days of sheer agony from that number of bites. We don't EVER want to see that cabin again. While we recognize that this is a problem all properties can have, we will not be renting, nor can we provide a good recommendation for Elk Springs Resorts.

Host Resonse (November 09, 2017):

Thank you very much for letting us know about the circumstances that affected your stay. I am very sorry that you and your husband endured this. Unfortunately, when people travel, they do sometimes bring along bedbugs. However, bedbugs do not discriminate and can be brought into the cleanest of cabins by the cleanest of people. It is an unfortunate situation for all involved. We take extensive measures to ensure that our cabins are checked for these regularly and treated as needed. Thankfully, we don't have to deal with them very often. After your report, we did have the cabin inspected by canines trained to detect the presence of bedbugs and they confirmed that your report was true. We did refund you the full amount of your stay. However, we are not in the business of refunding for medical expenses after the fact. Here is the quote from the email you sent me 6 days after you checked out of your cabin.. "Thank you so much for your response. I can’t begin to imagine how difficult it is to manage to this issue and am so very glad to know that you did follow up immediately. I know how hard it is to control and stop this from spreading and I was very concerned about the other renters who may have been affected by this. Your response confirms that we did choose a professional company to work with. Thank you very much for your responsiveness. Kathy" Again, our sincere apologies for your cabin experience.

Wish we could stay longer

Bear Den was a cute and clean little cabin! We have no complaints with our time here. The views were great and there is plenty to do while spending time at the cabin (hot tub, pool table). The bed in the master bedroom was SO comfy, you will almost instantly fall asleep when you hit the bed. Overall we had a great time on this trip, we spent our time outside of the cabin zip lining, riding horses, and riding ATV's. We will certainly be back!

A gorgeous view of the Smokies

We were very happy with our stay at Ben Den. The deck off the main floor offers a great view; however we were disappointed with the amount of noise that could be heard from a road nearby. For being a more remote location, the traffic noise was unexpected and detracted from the peaceful feeling we were looking for in the country. Overall a very well maintained and lovely stay.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Jennifer. We are happy you enjoyed your overall stay, however, disheartened you were disappointed with this aspect of your visit. While this area is well known for it's peaceful feel, it can experience heavy traffic during peak seasons. We were experiencing a higher than normal volume of traffic over the weekend with the car show as well as a large number of families visiting us from Florida and areas that were evacuating from Hurricane Irma. With the higher than normal volume, we can certainly understand the additional traffic related noise. We sincerely apologize and hope you understand this was not a typical weekend. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will make plans to visit again in the future.

Superb!

Renting a cabin in the mountains has been on my bucket list. I was not dissappointed. Meticulously maintained, beautiful view, private and just a short drive to Gatlinburg town. If you are looking for a great, quiet getaway spend it here. Fantastic! Thank you for sharing your fantastic cabins.

Bear Den Cabin Anniversary Stay

We loved the cabin. Being a little older, it was an experience that we weren't sure of, but we loved it. Usually stay in motels so this was a lovely change for us, very relaxing and a beautiful view. We did not do any cooking or eating at the cabin, but will if we do this again.

Bear Den Review

We truly enjoyed this cabin and it's beautiful views. However, we we were very disappointed when there was no propane to use the fire pit of the grill. We followed the instructions that were left but were unable to use either. We would like to stay here again but hope these things work next time.
