"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."

"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!"

"Quaint little cabin at the end of a long and hilly road and built into the side of a hill. The view is spectacular and we were able to watch a Bald Eagle every evening as it hunted for dinner. Very clean and it is obviously a labor of love for the owner. Be prepared to climb if you want to access the lake. As I mentioned, it is built into the side of a hill and there are many stairs and some rocks that you will have to traverse to get there. It's also not really made for tall people. My husband is 6'2" and had to duck coming down the stairs. Just a couple of things to be aware of if you are interested. But all in all, it was a great experience for us!"

"I can't say enough about this beautiful place. No matter where you look the views are second to none. Thank you to the owners for renting their little slice of waterfront heaven! There was plenty of room for all of us as well as our two dogs. The owners were quick to respond to any questions and are very easy to work with. Kids especially enjoyed playing in the water and fishing from dock. Everything was great, if you want to just get a way and just relax this is the place. We look forward to coming back."
