Youth retreat

We had 28 people for a weekend church youth retreat and there was plenty of space and entertainment for the kids. The cabin was well stocked with cooking items and toiletries. The views were amazing. The management was amazing at keeping us up to date on conditions around us (it was December and snowing) and made sure the cabin was up to our standards. The kids enjoyed themselves and would go back again.

Recent Stay

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your cabin. We were very pleased with the customer service. Every request was responded to in a timely manner and every phone call returned. The door was mastered with assistance and close reading of directions. Our packages arrived before our party and you were very helpful in securing them until we arrived. We were disappointed that the dishwasher stopped working and the second floor refrigerator thermostat was broken. It remained warm the whole weekend. The cabin does not have as many rocking chairs as pictured and a few of them have broken arms. The views were amazing and our group of 16 were very pleased. Many thanks to your customer service, housekeeping and maintenance personnel.

Worth the Drive!

Big Bear Lodge sits at the very end of the access road, but the view, once there, is well worth the steep climb! It was spacious and comfortable furnished, boasting a second eating area on the top floor. Each level had its own veranda, so you could take in the view on every level.

Big Bear Lodge

Our family of 21 (grandma age 80, 6-age 50 something, 9 age 25-30, and 4 little ones ages 1-5, just returned from Elk Springs Resort- Big Bear Lodge.This property gets a 4.5 star rating from our family. We would all go back and recommend it highly to friends traveling to the area. We have rented a summer vacation home every year for over 30 years in various places around the central and southern US, so we know the details that families are looking for and have a lot to compare this property to.You are in the mountains, and it is a beautiful drive up the mountain! The parking area is large (probably comfortably 8 parking spaces) and is on a flat plain area of the mountain so seems very safe. It is only 20-25 minutes to downtown Gatlinburg and Dollywood, so very convenient between the 2 towns either way you go, and not a difficult drive between either, in fact, enjoyable. The decks are very usable and safe as long as an adult stays with the kiddos. The lower level has a convenient outdoor hose so we filled up a little blow up pool for our young kids next to the hot tub that they used daily.The kitchen is well equipped, blender, bullet, skillets, wine glasses, mixer, large fridge, and another small one for drinks on the top level.The bedrooms all have their own mirror and sink, so no need to feel like you are taking up the bathroom for lengths of time to do hair or apply make-up. VERY convenient… the best set up for bedrooms bathrooms I have ever seen in 30 years of vacation rentals.Each floor has its own central air conditioner unit and temperature control, so none of the freezing up if you like to run it a 70-72 that can be a problem in large rentals. Bedroom stayed cool even on the top floor.The pool table is in a huge room, plenty of space to have other things going on around it, like a table for family puzzle, card game, we even set up our giant Jenga game and used it while pool games were going on in the same room.T

Excellent location

The cabin was in excellent condition and very roomey. Very clean. Enough linens were provided. We really enjoyed the stay and the beautiful view. All of us were not happy with the quality of mattresses. I think they are getting old needs to be replaced. Also, some of the bed covers were bad. The pots and pans in the kitchen were non-stick so most of them had the coating ruined. I would recommend them to replace.

Wonderful cabin for a great mountain retreat!!!

We stayed here with the majority of our soccer team and we had the best time! It was such a nice place, everyone could spread out on the three floors and three decks. The kitchen was amazing because most of us could all sit together for meals. Wonderful cabin! Highly recommend it!

Pretty Good Cabin

I rented the cabin for a combined bachelor/bachelorette party. We had 18 people and were very comfortable except the kitchen is super small and is missing a cookie sheet if you plan to cook!
