"Our stay here for the Labor Day Holiday couldn't have been any better. Everything we saw in the description of the property came true. Very clean and extremely well maintained. Gary and Angela provided an excellent customer experience from beginning to end. Renting a boat was easy especially with the use of the beautiful dock. Don't miss out on a day in the Smokey Mountains to see a bear or two up close! I would recommend this property to my closest friend."

"We loved our overall experience with this cabin. The location does not have mountain views but it makes up for that in where it is located. We were just a couple miles from the Gatlinburg strip. The cabin was very clean. We loved sitting on the outside swing and very much enjoyed being able to have a real fire in the fireplace. The beds and couch were comfy. We did get a brother bear visitor too! Now for things that could have been a little better..... First off we were amazed that we had such a close neighbor because you cannot tell it from the pictures. There is another cabin right in front of this cabin. There is not any privacy if you want to use the hot tub for either cabin. We tried to use the cool red blender for mixed drinks. Unfortunately the blender's blades are wore out... The amenities say this cabin has a pool table. The cabin does not have a pool table. I am assuming the description is talking about a pool table they have at one of their game rooms that are located elsewhere. We were able to find one of the rooms a few miles away from the cabin, but it was closed. We would rent this cabin again now that we know what to expect. It's just disappointing when you are expecting a certain perk at your cabin and when you arrive it is not there. One last biggie problem... We arrived 45 minutes past check in time just to be told by the cleaners still in the cabin that they needed another 45 minutes before they would be finished. This put us 1.5 hours past check in time that our cabin was not available to us!! This disturbed our plans since we had to leave and go fight traffic again! We were not notified of this delay."

"We really enjoyed our stay at Papa Bear. We had 9 adults and it fit our needs perfectly. Each family was able to sleep on their own floor of the house. The 2 decks are just perfect and hot tub is wonderful at night. We brought all of our food with us and the kitchen was furnished nicely. We were missing a few little things, can opener and kitchen towel) we ended up finding a kitchen towel draped outside on the deck later in our stay. We didn't have much dish soap but made due. The location couldn't have been better. We were no more than 20 mins to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. And the view was just stunning. We hiked Alum Cave and it took about 39 minutes to get there. So nice to come home and sit in the hot tub. It was so quiet and peaceful. We can not wait to go back."
