"We were all very pleased with our stay at Bear Den South. The pictures do not do it justice as they can't show how spacious the home is. There were nine people in our party and we had plenty of room. We had great views of the Smokey mountains and beautiful Cherokee Lake. The kitchen is well equipped and I had fun using the variety of dishes. There were also supplies on hand which was very nice. Little things mean a lot like plenty of trash bags, toilet paper, towels, blankets, pillows, cooking items, lots of movies to watch, and kitchen essentials (salt, pepper, baking powder, etc.) All the beds were very comfortable. Also, the kids had plenty of rafts to play on, plus life jackets galore which they used all week. The water is deep and clean and not weedy. We rented a pontoon boat for a day from Cardinal Cove which was close to the house and convenient. Other side trips were a day in Gatlinburg and an afternoon at Panther Creek State Park (welcome center is closed on Wednesday). We also found a vegetable stand nearby with some good Grainger tomatoes. It was just a wonderful time for our family and at the end I had a big hug from my youngest grandchild who said "thanks for bringing me to Tennessee and also for our great home!" I can say anyone who stays here will not be disappointed."

"The rain didn't spoil our fun . We used a canopy on the concrete pad and enjoyed the view. We tied our boat to the dock and hung out and swam between rains. We also took a couple of canoe rides through the beautiful cove. The Bunkhouse was clean, beautifully decorated, and perfect for my family of 3 . Can't wait to visit again!"

"Very nice stay. House is clean and crisp. Well cared for property. Bruce and Carolyn are delightful and are close by. House can accommodate many. Shady , relaxing backyard to swing in the hammock. Eat breakfast in the sunroom listening to the birds. It's peaceful and convenient. 1hr away from The TriCities and Knoxville. Houston Lake is 20mins. away. Wal-Mart is literally 5 mins away. Load the family in the car and take in the fresh Mountain air cruzing the country roads. Why stay in a small hotel room? We will return."

"My family and I enjoyed a great week at this property! The cabin was very clean and definitely inviting. There was plenty of space for my family of 4 plus my 2 in laws who joined us for a few days. The dock is gorgeous and we spent a lot of time there, even the neighbors were friendly! The kitchen had everything we needed pkus more. The cabin is at a manageable distance to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. There was a wonderful snack basket prepared for us when we walked in and we already planning our next trip here!"
