  • One Day After Our Return from vacationing at Tanasi.. still thinking WOW!!!

    "About 6 months ago I set out to find a great location for a combined family vacation and reunion. I needed a great location where 20 people could stay, relax, and yet have plenty of activities for any family to enjoy (1 year old to 80 year old). I focused on what, for us, was a great location relative to where our various family members live… and that was the Smokey Mountains near Pigeon Forge, TN. Next step was to find a great cabin/lodge, however I did not want to work with an agency, as I have learned a few lessons on how great they can make a place sound and look and then you show up only to wonder where they took the pictures they showed you. Ultimately through a few search’s and then a Sunday night call to the owners (Cindy & Bob), I found “Tanasi Lodge”. Cindy helped me better understand the location (top of the mountain) and this great lodges offerings, not to mention made me feel she would be there for my every question as I planned the family events for the week, so I locked in and never looked back. One day (today) after we returned home, I am writing my “first ever” on line review as I and my total family were so impressed. What a GREAT location/view, lodge, and amenities. We had s’mores at our fire one night, enjoyed watching the fireworks in the valley on the 4th, and just had a great and spacious place for our family to meet, relax and catch up. We did waterpark at Dollywood, a lake day at Lake Douglas, drove go carts, went to Dixie Stampede and more, but every night returned to the top of the mountain and relaxed. If you are looking for a Great, and I mean ZERO complaints, location near Pigeon Forge, stop now, call Cindy and Bob and book this lodge. Being a skeptic, I know this review may sound like I am making a commission, but I am not…I am just over whelmed with this vacation as it was one of our top 2 best of all times and that was primarily due to this incredible lodge setting that allowed 20 relatives, who have not all been together for 10 years, to live together for over a week and still be on speaking terms  Cindy/Bob—Thank You!

  • GREAT CABIN, comfy beds,

    "We rented this cabin after talking with Donna the owner. She was very informative, and gave me info for ALL my questions (there were many) my wife has had a bad back surgery so many stairs were out as were steep stairs and she needs a personal shower. many cabins only have a hot tub and a bathing tub. the home was described and amenities exactly as they are. We were very pleased with the cabin although it rained every day! We never got to enjoy the outdoor fire ring. We did get to help locate a neighbors dog that figured his way out of a nearby cabin...We loved the beds, linens, towels, all high quality and soft...everything you need is there including karaoke. TV s in every room. We didn't cook my wife is on vacation too so we eat out at usual places. Tony Gores BBQ and ribs, steaks etc ; TJ Hanna's; ALAMO has best steaks, Cheddars; smoky mountain pancake pantry in Gatlinburg is best pancakes and crepes: We liked flapjacks in pigeon forge too, but not as well. The cabin has a drive in garage which helped me getting wife in and out in the rain. We will definitely stay here again, Thanksgiving it is booked so we r searching already for another great place....Donna and Rusty are great owners, actually answered the phone!! they helped us in the time we had to call and everything was worked out quickly. We r hoping to stay here again really son and his girl friend came and we really enjoyed the large den."

  • Great place to stay!!!!

    "I really enjoyed staying here. The owners were wonderful. We had a problem with the internet and oven and the owners were there and fixed everything. This home looks as nice as the pictures. I was very pleased when we arrived. We had 3 different small families (7 people) staying together and we each had our own space and was plenty of room. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. The fireflies at night were amazing, unlike anything I had ever seen. The drive to Chattanooga was nice and only took about 20 minutes. If I vacation back in Chattanooga I would definitely stay here again."

  • Wonderful place......once you get there!

    "My husband and I and 3 kids (ages 12-18) booked the Bears Den for a quick 3 night family getaway. My husband is a police officer and did not get off duty until 7pm so we set out from Atlanta around 8pm to make the 4 hour drive. There was a little snow on the ground as we topped the mountains and we were able to see all the city lights and Christmas decorations aglow. I will agree with the other visitors, that once you get in the area of the Bears Den it is a nerve racking, twisting, steep, narrow climb. I would suggest that you have a 4 wheel drive and if you are not comfortable with these types of roads that you get everything you need and head back to the cabin before dark. However the owner did provide perfect directions and even though it is a rural area we had no problems locating the cabin. The cabin is beautifully decorated and full of entertainment for children of ALL ages. We rented a movie from the local Red Box and enjoyed the theater. Everything worked perfectly (we did not use the hot tub; but I would be willing to bet it was perfect as well). The master bed could use a new mattress but other than that we had no problems at all. I would have no problem recommending this cabin, just again be prepared for the ride up."
