                                                      We stayed in Townsend Cabin # 1 Black Bear. Our group consisted of 4 adults and the place worked perfect. Rustic, enjoyable, and a very easy drive into the Smoky Mountains so we could enjoy the Fall colors. We had a great time.

                                                      Thank you so much for the kind review! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, and hope to host you again soon!

                                                      Michael A.

                                                      We enjoyed 3 nights at this wonderful little cabin. For our family of 5 we enjoyed hiking during the day, getting to watch some black bears at dusk and dawn just a few 100 yards away from the cabin and games together around the table during the evening. It was great to be unplugged from wifi and internet access and enjoy the hot tub and meals together. Even with some crazy rain we were able to get an afternoon hike and look at the Smoky Mtns each day. Fun time together as a family.

                                                      Next to Heaven was just that!

                                                      Jayme T.

                                                      We had a wonderful stay in Black Bear! It was big, yet cozy for our family of four! One of our children slept upstairs, one took advantage of the downstairs sofa bed! It was perfect for a toddler and a teenager! The kitchen was perfect for light cooking, and somehow the hot water heater kept up with filling the giant jacuzzi tub! The fireplace kept it nice and warm on the cold evenings! Huge bonus: Our security deposit was refunded before we even got home!

                                                      We also took advantage of every activity on site! The unguided horse back ride up the mountain was AMAZING And the zip lining didn't disappoint! Bible verses throughout the stay/adventure were constant reminders of Gods grace and the beauty of what he created! Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!

                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                      We are thrilled that you had such a great experience while staying at Black Bear Cabin! So glad you were able to enjoy the horseback rides and ziplining too! We look forward to having you back and thanks for the great review! Come back soon!



                                                      We loved the cabin, the view - everything about this visit!!!

                                                      Clean & Cozy

                                                      Laura S.

                                                      Very cute cabin in the woods!

                                                      We rented the cabin for a "girls" family retreat over the weekend. The rooms were nice and the house was clean. The kitchen is very small, but there were enough dishes and pans for cooking simple meals. No dishwasher in this cabin. The downstairs master did not have a shower, only a large tub so everyone showered upstairs. Hot tub on the balcony was wonderful! We put the outside fire pit to use and roasted s'mores.

                                                      The HUGE downside to this was the outside balcony railing. Unsafe for small children. We had a toddler with us and had to constantly watch him because the space between the slats would allow him to fall to the ground.

                                                      We took advantage of the horseback riding and our whole family loved it!

                                                      For the price they charge, this cabin is a great deal! I would definitely stay there again.
