About Irma

Renting our vacation home has been a fantastic experience. We have built new relationships with our guests and enjoy sharing this wonderful home.

Our family lives in sunny Florida and we enjoy coming to the mountains as often as we can. We have been a part of the Smoky Mountains community for over 25 years. When we first visited we could not believe the beauty of this great land and the friendliness of the people here. We fell in love and decided that we wanted to be a part of this area for the rest of our lives.

Irma purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Irma chose Tennessee

We loved the location of our cabin in Eagle Springs Resort. It has a great view of a mountain range on one side and beautiful lush trees and pines on the other. The area is very peaceful and serene. You can hear the birds singing and see the butterflies dancing around on the flowers.

What makes this cabin unique

Honey Bear has a great location close to Hwy. 66, I-40, Dolly Parton Parkway & Winfield Dunn Parkway. Just 10-15 minutes from Pigeon Forge and 20-25 minutes to Gatlinburg. There is a Kroger and Food City close by as well as many restaurants and a movie theater just minutes away. The Sevierville Event Center , Wilderness in the Smokies Water Park and the gold club is just 7 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect For Our Family

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time staying at the Honey Bear Cabin after discovering it last year. The cabin is located in a resort area of individual cabins. There is a pool and new covered picnic pavilion. As we stayed in mid-April, the pool was not open yet. The cabin is ultra-clean, very well stocked including full kitchen and pots, pans, and utensils, and has just about anything you could want. The WiFi worked great as well as the satellite TV playing on a large flat-panel TV in the main 1st floor Family Room and a 2nd TV in the upstairs Loft area. There is also a separate TV upstairs exclusively for hooking up games. Everything was clean, including the hot tub, which was great and relaxing. The views from the covered decks are great. We enjoyed coffee on the deck each morning in the comfortable rocking chairs. The owner has thought about everything and has well-written and easy-to-understand instructions for things such as opening the hot tub cover, controlling the thermostat in the cabin, etc. Housekeeping had done a very nice job with specially folded towels in the 2 baths & kitchen, along with having set out some microwave bags of popcorn with several containers made special for the popped corn. The cabin is located about 10 minutes from the main street through Sevierville and is close by to many local attractions. Can't say enough nice things about the cabin, our experience, and the dealings with the owner. Thanks for a long sought after weekend of relaxation and no worries.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was really nice and the surrounding scenery was beautiful. The pictures on the website show you exactly what to expect and we had a very pleasant and relaxing stay. Irma was a pleasure to deal with and quick to respond to any messages with questions or concerns. The cabin was clean and weLloyd maintained and looked new. It is located just outside Sevierville so pretty much anything you need is not far away. It is extremely close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg but not too close that you have to deal with their traffic or overflow yet close enough that it is a quick trip to get to any of the attractions. I highly recommend staying at this cabin and enjoying everything it has to offer. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing Cabin - Great for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for a 4-day trip to Pigeon Forge and we absolutely loved it. Our 3 children (ages 9, 11, & 11) stayed upstairs in the loft and left the main level for us adults.

The twin bed setup was fantastic and each bed has it's own reading light built into the wall. The kids loved the large TV on the wall and the smaller TV for video games. They also used the pool table a lot too. Two couches meant that everyone had a place to sit if they didn't want to be on their bed. The view from the loft out the great window was incredible.

We got a lot of use out of the hot-tub too. The temperature was complaints about it being too hot. We appreciated the privacy grate so that we could be in the hot tub without feeling like we were being watched. Lots of seating on the wrap-around porch as well.

We also appreciated that the bathrooms and kitchen had a great starter amount of toilet paper and paper towels...and a very thoughtful amount of towels and wash cloths.

The only thing missing is a washer/dryer. It would be amazing to have, but definitely not enough to complain about...not even enough to change the 5-star rating.

We will absolutely stay in the Honey Bear cabin again on our next Pigeon Forge vacation. Also Irma has been extremely easy to contact and work with. Thanks a ton!

Owner's Response: Thanks Eric for such a great review. FYI-There is a laundry facility 10 minutes from the cabin. On the refrigerator there is a decal with the name and address of the facility for those guests that need to do laundry. Many come to rest and take it easy and are not interested in doing laundry, for those that are there is an option nearby. Irma
