Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is great, our family has enjoyed our stay here. We especially like how each room is decorated and that each room has its own theme like the teddy bear bedroom, the Elvis room and the Coca-Cola bathroom. Now that was creative. We also enjoyed the wrap around deck and all the views. We loved it.

Great stay for large families!

  • 5 of 5

Our family's first trip to the Great Smoky Mountains. The cabin's location made it very easy to access the many attractions and activities that the area has to offer. We visited Dolly wood, Dixie Stampede, Smoky Mountain Knife Works, Ripley's Aquarium, went zip-lining, putt-putting, go-carting, as well as visiting the many antique shops. Each time, we had a short car ride to get there. The cabin was very spacious, we had plenty of room for everyone and we enjoyed the themed decor of each room. It was clean and well maintained. Overall, we had a wonderful experience, and would certainly recommend this property to anyone, especially large families.

Bachelorette Weekend By Melissa

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Bear Necessities cabin for a friend of mine for her bachelorette weekend. We had an absolute blast! The cabin itself was beautiful and well taken care of. There was plenty of room for all of us and there were 16 (girls) total. We loved the large wrap around porch and of course the hot tub was a huge hit! Some of the girls said the sofa beds were a little rough to sleep on but that is to be expected with the thin mattresses on those things. :) The only problem we encountered was the driveway because it is on the steep side (also, to be expected in the mountains). Lower cars drug a little bit going up into the drive. Just FYI we figured out that if you back out toward the exit of the development and go down to the cul-de-sac to turn around that it doesn't drag too bag. The location was pretty great too because there was plenty to do and the drive to town was not far at all and if you needed a taxi, they could come find you with no problems. Overall a great experience and can't wait to go back. Two thumbs up!

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had about 15 people in our group. It was a beautiful canin, with lots of room. We enjoyed going from room to room to see how it was decorated. Plenty of space for the group to be split up and do their own thing or all be together. We really enjoyed our stay!

Beautiful getaway cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful cabin with just as amazing views. We were taken away by the gorgeous mountain view before even stepping foot inside. Once going in, it got even better. Everything in here was top notch. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the utensils you would ever need. And the amazing Elmira stove looked like one of yesteryear but was completely up to date behind the facade. Between the dining table, the bar, and the open floor plan, there was a ton of seating if you want to have a large family getaway. Every bedroom was themed and done very nicely and not too cheesy like a lot of cabins. The jacuzzi in the master was very relaxing after a long day hiking. We were up early in the morning and the large porch swing was great to sit in and watch and hear the world wake up. This was one of the most relaxing places I've stayed at in years!

The Cabin, Bear Necessities was absolutely beautiful, Great location! 2 miles from Tanger Mall, and any restaurant your heart desires. Housekeeping is #1, very well kept, and clean. Has everything to make you feel at home even though you're in the mountains. No more shopping around for cabins, I have put this rental service in my contact list on my phone. Please call and book your reservations today. You will never shop for any better, because there is no better comfort and desire anywhere else than what this cabin offers.
