Long overdue getaway

In August 2017 my mother and my wife’s father both passed away in the same week and my wife took the daily care of her elderly mother. This commitment still happens today. Her younger brother told her she needed a break so we decided to get some R&R in the Gatlinburg area. Our 5 day stay rejuvenated her body and mind. Aunt Bugs provided the solitude that was much needed. If you’re looking for some easy way to get away, I suggest Aunt Bugs, if they can’t satisfy your wants and needs, nobody can.

Bear haven review

Not enough cooking items, no mixing bowels, no pizza cutter, not a pan big enough to cook soup. Each of the 2 bedrooms had a jacuzzi tub, water must be well water. Yellowish in color, not desirable to soak in. Nice cabin overall, hot tub relaxing and nice although old. Enjoyed the pool table. Bring supplies. Literally only give you 1 trash bags, 1 toilet paper, 1 dishwashING tablet, etc. For what you pay could provide a little more supplies. Coffee pot old and falling apart, needs some updating.

Nice cabin, prepare to clean the bathroom yourselves

Only complaint is the bathrooms were not cleaned well. Hair left in the shower from previous guest which is gross. The toilets had not been cleaned. Other than those issues, the cabin itself was great.

Get away with friends

One of my friends had never been to Gatlinburg so we went with another couple had a great time. The cabin was nice & we even got a visit from a real bear after grilling our food we was eating & just looked out the window in time to watch the bear come out of the tree area down to our cabin he smelled the food went over by the grill then up on the porch to the door then turned around & walked off the porch down around the back of the cabin back into the woods was awesome we got some really good pictures of him.

Not Impressed with Bear Haven #297 cabin

Was never emailed or contacted about check in procedure or door code. Called when I was about an hour out and was told the cabin was clean and given the door code. Arrive to find there is no parking whatsoever for Bear Haven #297 and had to park in a blind curve. Go inside and the cabin had not been cleaned. Bathroom was dirty - toilet not cleaned, fruit flys in both showers, about an inch thick of dust. Saw lots of bad reviews after booking and couldn’t cancel so decided to give it a try but knew (due to the fine print on the contract)I had to check everything out and report it within 2 hours. Over half the jets on the hot tub didn’t work, there was a styrofoam plate under one leg of the pool table to level it out, the pictures posted of this cabin are very misleading. It’s tiny inside. There’s no closet in either bedroom so you can’t hang up anything and there is very little to no water pressure. I called management about it not being clean and the jets not working and they said they would let maintenance and the cleaning service know. They asked if I wanted the cleaning service to come back out or if I had a problem with so many people bombarding my stay/vacation. Maintenance was supposed to come out. I called on Friday afternoon when I checked in and when I left on Tuesday they still hadn’t come, so no hot tub during the stay. Next time I’ll sgay in cabins in Georgia. There you get a lot more cabin for your Money and I have never had a problem with a broken hot tub nor parking. They’re also secluded in Georgia. It seems like there are very much in rental conditions. There’s no privacy. The cabins are stacked on top of each other and not maintenanced on a regular basis. Very disappointing.

Great place for a couple or two to stay at with a pup. We had a great relaxing time on our weekend trip. Cabin was furnished and updated nicely. Only thing was no blow dryer so ladies pack yours but no biggie.

Early Fall Weekend Getaway

We decided last minute to travel to Pigeon Forge for a Few Days with the Family & our Take our Fur Baby along....This Cabin was not only Pet Friendly but was reasonably priced. We had a Great Stay...Vey roomy and quiet. Located close to Both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge which was also convenient. We would definitely visit again
