Dreaming Bears- Beautiful Views, Hot Tub, Arcade, Great Reviews!
average rating of 5.0 based on 21 reviews

The view was breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a wonderful vacation during the week of Thanksgiving. The cabin was spotless and very comfortable for our large group of 9 adults and some big kids that crashed on the sleeper sofas in the basement/game room. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, including a Keurig, regular coffee maker, pots/pans, crockpot and more than enough tableware. We took a lot of pictures of the beautiful fall leaves and smoky mountains while relaxing on the deck. The cabin is about 15 - 20 minutes from town. The few minute drive up the mountain to the cabin was interesting and made for a lot of laughs. Us Floridians aren't use to the mountain roads. The cool weather was a great change to our usual hot and humid temps. Overall, we had an unforgettable vacation at Dreaming Bears and would like to thank the owners for a wonderful stay.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Dreaming Bears is simply beautiful and better than the pictures. The views from the two large decks have to be the best in the area, and you will understand why they are called the Smoky Mountains. The home was spacious and nicely furnished to handle our group of 12. Everyone slept well on the comfortable beds and we had too much fun with the arcade games. Finally, the check in and out process went smoothly and Kelly was always available to answer any questions. Our stay could not have been better.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely beautiful with spectacular views of the smokey mountains and amazing sunsets.

Best family vacation! The kids enjoyed the big game room while we relaxed on the main level.

The house was spotless, kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need, great location in the mountains, gated driveway so it was very private.

It was only a 30 minute drive to everything in town.

I highly recommend this cabin.

Perfect cabin for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Of the many cabins we've stayed at over the years, Dreaming Bears has been the best! The cabin is not only gorgeous, it is very functional for a large group. We put the early risers (aka kids) in the bedrooms downstairs, which worked out great because they could play the arcade games in the morning and not wake up the rest of the house. We made dinner at the cabin every night and the kitchen was stocked with all the necessary cookware. The large table was perfect for our big family. The best part of our stay, however, was the setting! The views were absolutely incredible and we loved returning to our secluded cabin after fighting the Gatlinburg crowds during the day. I wish I could be back there right now!

Wonderful mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious, beautiful, log cabin- style home was perfect for our family gathering of 5 families. The game room and hot tub were definitely crowd favorites! Morning coffee on the back deck was a great way to soak in the beauty! I have already recommended this property to a friend. There is a golf course and stream at the base of the mountain, both less than a mile from the house. We hope to return next year!
