"Martha Stewart needs to hand over her hostess crown... this place was impeccable! The owners did a fantastic job of anticipating anything we might need or want and having it at the ready (umbrellas, binoculars, books, etc.). Although small, the cottage is arranged beautifully and is very comfortable. We were especially impressed with the craftsmanship and quality construction that obviously went into building everything. And the view of the lake is too perfect to be believed. Highly recommended."

"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."

"We love this house! It is a very convenient location, stores and gas stations close, and close to several marinas on the water. This is a beautiful house, 2 bedrooms upstairs, and 2 downstairs, and a full bathroom on both floors. Our teens stayed downstairs, and adults were upstairs so we each had our own areas because of course the kids were up later, and made more noise. There is a refrigerator down stairs, which was perfect for cooling drinks to take right out the back door to load in the boat. The kitchen is large enough for 2 or 3 people to be prepping or cooking, and a gas and a charcoal grill on the deck made dinners a snap. We LOVED the upper back deck! It has plenty of seating, and an absolutely beautiful view! The lake is beautiful and clean, and the water was perfect, about 85 degrees. We can't wait to go back. Kim is very responsive to any questions, and extremely easy to work with. She even has a book put together that has directions to local stores and restaurants, which is where we found a pizza place that delivered our first night, and it was delicious. This was probably our best, and most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. We celebrated my birthday while we were there, and I can't think of anywhere I else I would have rather been. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your home Sid and Kim, we will definitely be making reservations again!"

"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!"
