Thank you for your 5-Star review, Joanne! We are ecstatic to hear you enjoyed your stay. How exciting! It is always a treat to see black bears playing and interacting in their natural habitat, at a safe distance of course. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will visit often!

"Life's A Bear" Cabin Rental - Elk Springs Resort

Elk Springs Resort is the best placed we have ever stayed and we've stayed in a lot of places! The 2 bedroom 2 bath cabin was rustic, large, and comfortable as well as luxurious. We had everything we needed in the spacious kitchen and the outdoor hot tub was an extra bonus, along with the pool table in the loft area. You won't be sorry for staying with Elk Springs Resorts!

cabin in the mountains

all was great. only complaint i have is the pictures of the "mountain view" were a little deceiving - online the pictures showed no street pavement or the other cabin that is facing you. the privacy was not as it had appeared. the other thing is the internet was down for about a day and a half. this is not really a complaint as i believe it was due to the weather which obviously no one can control but just wanted to point out.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

Cabin was incredibly clean and well stocked. We really enjoyed family pool tournaments and the hot tub at night. In a great location. Only a short drive to downtown Gatlinburg and the National Park.

Life's a Bear Review

Our stay was fine. The staff worked with me to find a property which could accommodate my vehicles, which I appreciated. If you can, I would trim the growth near the drive to Brigadoone (not your property, I know) because it has completely cut off the mountain view from Life's a Bear. We were sad not to be able to sit outside and enjoy the spectacular view promised on your website.

Host Response (June 30, 2017):

View to a victory

The turn off was it was hard to locate. However, the beast was the customer service in helping us locate the cabin. It was clean, the view was great and we had a great time.

it was ok

the cabin is beautiful but there were alot of flies in the upstairs bedroom (alive and dead). Also the picture on the website was misleading. Overall the distance was great from the Gatlinburg stores.

Host Response (December 08, 2017):

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Tracy. We are sorry you were disappointed with these aspects of your stay. We provide professional pest control at each of the cabins. This cabin was treated recently. The treatment provided is effective, however, can take a few days to reach full effectiveness. The pictures on our website are taken at the cabin itself and are a true representation of what you will find once you arrive at the cabin. We are sorry if you felt it was misleading in any way. We sincerely apologize for any disappointment and hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.

Serenity at its best

We went to the mountains to celebrate a milestone birthday and take in some skiing. This trip will remain in our memories for many years to come. The cabin was nestled at the top of the mountain and all we could see was snowy woods- absolutely beautiful. We will be back to enjoy this special place.

Convenient location

Overall great experience. We would stay again. Cabin was very clean. Everything was like new. Great location. If I had one thing to mention is they clear the cob webs on the deck. There were several cob webs and HUGE spiders at the entry of cabin. Everything else was fantastic

Host Response (September 19, 2017):

Thank you for your wonderful review, Andrea. It is great that you enjoyed your stay at Life's A Bear! This cabin is truly a great place to relax and take it all in. Although we make an attempt to sweep down cobwebs during each cleaning they can literally form overnight. Being in the mountains, this is something we can not escape. We are sorry if this caused an inconvenience to your stay but hope that you will join us again during your next trip to The Great Smoky Mountains.
