A weekend of love!

We had a blast! Only thing we didn't like was the shower never was hot, and the hot tub never was hot until Saturday night. We had a great time bonding together that weekend just wish it would have been longer!

Fungus smell

The cabin was clean and in good conditions but there was a heavy fungus smell which ruined our first day of stay. The property management helped us with an O3 device to get rid of the smell but the next day they took it away and that smell was back in a few hours. I couldn't enjoy the cabin AT ALL.

We LOVED our time at Bear Necessities!

The cabin was lovely and private. It was so much more comfortable than a hotel would have been! The only issue we had was checking in. They had told us we would receive a code to check in at 3pm. We were waiting at the location when the cleaning crew showed up at 3:20 to start cleaning. My husband also felt like the mattress wasn’t the best quality and left his back aching. Other than that, our stay was perfect!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, Alaine. We are happy you enjoyed your stay, however disheartened to hear you experienced these issues. We apologize for the delay in the cabin being completed on your day of arrival. We try our best to have all cabins ready prior to our 3:00 pm but can be delayed during peak times. We hope the late checkout on your departure day helped to show that we truly care about our guests and want you to be able to fully enjoy your time spent with us. We appreciate your feedback regarding the mattress. We will have one of our technicians check the condition of the mattress. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience experienced and hope you will consider staying with us again during your next visit to The Great Smoky Mountains.

Host Resonse (July 06, 2017):

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed in your cabin choice, Hiteshkumar. We would like to clarify your statements though, as they are simply untrue. We do show that you booked this cabin online, and can assure you every one of these items you were unhappy with were clearly listed on our description. This cabin is located just moments from Dollywood, which is in Pigeon Forge. Bear Necessities is not located on our main resort, nor is it advertised to be. Elk Springs Resort is in Gatlinburg, and along with several offices, offers our guests a choice of 45 cabins located on our actual resort property. Our website makes it simple to search for the properties on our resort as you can easily search by area if this is an important factor for you. During the reservation process, our cancellation policy is clearly stated, prior to booking the cabin. It is also clearly stated on the contract you signed prior to arriving. This cabin is also clearly listed as having no washer/dryer as well as no dishwasher. In an effort to ensure our guests are aware, it is highlighted in capital letters in the full description. We have strict policies regarding our hot tubs. The housekeepers must submit time stamped photographs of both the emptied hot tub as well as the filled and sanitized hot tub to ensure that they are drained, sanitized, and filled prior to each guests arrival. This was certainly not an exception. We do have photos showing each of these steps and can assure you the hot tub was not in the condition you described when you arrived. Each of our cabins are professionally treated by our local pest control company. We provide comforters on each of the beds, along with an extra blanket, which although you stated we don't give, you described as very light and thin. This truly is an exceptional cabin and we do not feel your description is reflective of this cabin in any way.

Private, quiet and romantic

The property was ready to find and in close proximity to all the action in Pigeon Forge. The only complaint we could have it's that on the first day in arrival the cabin had a musty odor. This was probably due to the heart shaped tub and the carpet combination. But it disipated after we were there for a while. The cabin is beautiful and the back deck and hot tub is nice and private. No noise complaints to speak of. On Expedia the bed is listed as twin but it is full sized. Overall we are very satisfied with out stay and had a great time.

Great stay!

We very much enjoyed our time at Bear Necessities through Elk Springs. It was a great getaway from home and a great honeymoon spot. We'll be recommending Elk Springs to more people we know vacationing in the Gatlinburg area.

Something smells

Cabin smelled musky. Either replace the carpet or shampoo it. Air conditioner was lacking any performance. And the location being across from the landfill did not allow one to enjoy the hottub when you were downwind
