Great location and cute cabin

The cabin was in great shape. Checking in and out was easy. The river behind the cabin was beautiful. Close to town and but river made all of the noise drown out in the background. Even saw a bear with her 3 cubs.

Great Get Away

Great location, nicely decorated and very clean. Really enjoyed it and look forward to return visit. We were not made aware of onsite check in option before we had already made the trip to Pigeon Forge to get the key, but all in all, great experience.

Great location!

This cabin was walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg. This was especially awesome because the traffic was INSANE and not having to rive in it was an added bonus I did not expect when booking cabin. The cabin was cozy but always seems too dark. Beds were extremely comfortable. Didn’t see any smoke alarms which concerned me.

Serene getaway

My family and I loved this cabin. It’s location is close to town and the park. Not to mention, it sits on a back road next to a serene, rushing creek that hides any traffic noise. The cabin was very clean and a good size for a family of four. It has everything you need to make your stay easy and care free. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We have stayed at this cabin several times and always enjoy the visits. We love the old cabin, specially the screened in porch. Since it rained every day that we were there; it was nice to have the rockers on the porch and enjoy the outside even when it was raining.

Patricia at Aunt bugs was awesome when I called her and told her what I was looking for. The cabin was good and the information of its history was totally awesome. The pigeon river running along the bank behind the cabin was beautiful!!

Bear Cabin #462 In Gatlinburg Tennessee

The cabin was in a great location in Gatlinburg right on the little pigeon river, the sound of the water was wonderful and so relaxing! The cabin was very clean and so cute, after a long day of doing so many fun things it sure was nice to come back to the peace of the cabin and get in the hot tub on the back porch and just relax, the cabin even has a wood burning fireplace which was a nice bonus to enjoy in the evening. The first night we were there our bed frame was loose, but the staff from Aunt Bugs called the next day before I even had a chance to call them to check and see how we were and if there was anything we needed, I told them about the bed and they sent a handyman straight over to fix it, we couldn’t be more pleased about how they handled that and treated us! Very sweet people. I will definitely use them again!
