"We loved the convenience of the condo to downtown Gatlinburg being able to walk down the hill and not drive in was great! We would stay again for this alone, but the condo was quiet and I loved sitting on the deck each morning drinking coffee watching the birds. Everything we needed was in the condo."

"Nice stay. Great amenities
We were a family of 4 and this cabin was more than sufficient for us. The the hot tub was in great condition. The rooms were big and the dining area was nice. The cabin is beautiful during the night. The game room though, was just a bit small to really play pool or ping pong (It could use new equipment). The place was quite and a great place for couples/family like us. The family room recliner needs to be replace so is the sofabed. Called the maintenance guy for a beehive and He was great!!! He was there in no time, super fast. The security system and locks worked great. Steep ride up to cabin, right between Gatlingburg and Pigneon forge Great stay overall"

"This was our 1st time staying at the Bear's Den. The Hale's were very responsive through emails and great to work with. We arrived on Saturday afternoon. Wayne had sent very detailed directions although our GPS took us right there. There are a couple of really steep hills. If there was snow, or the chance of snow even with our Jeep I would not want to stay here just because of those two hills. The locations is absolutely perfect. The cabin is very nice. We took our two small dogs with us and there is a nice area right across the road by the cabin to take them for pottying. It was nicely mowed. The cabin is well lit. A motion light shines on the driveway and there are porch lights. We also took a lantern flashlight just for taking the dogs out and not wanting to come face to face with any wildlife. My husband and I both are extremely picky about beds and the bed in the loft is VERY comfortable. We chose to sleep up there because the bedroom downstairs does not have a tv in it. The living room furniture is very comfortable. Nice tv in there. the wifi is awesome. The cabin needs some updating but it was VERY clean. The hot tub is on the porch and not totally secluded. Couple of the jets didn't work and was over chlorinated so I itched and eyes burned so bad we were only in it once which was very disappointing. The only other complaints I have would be in other cabins we've always found a "starter" supply with paper towels, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher detergent, and a couple trash bags. There was none of that stuff. Didn't really want to go shopping as soon as we got there. The trash can in the kitchen is extremely small with only one garbage bag. Filled it up the first day, took it out to a bigger trash on porch which is not fixed to keep wildlife out of it so the next morning our garbage was all over the porch. this happened twice so at this point we had to just let the garbage pile up inside. The outside trash can should be in one of those cage things so animals can't get in it. Also the linens weren't great. Towels very, very thin. No handtowels (I bought one), and only three wash cloths. Didn't really want to do laundry everyday so I bought a few wash cloths too. These would be my only complaints and they wouldn't make me not stay here again, we would just know what we needed to take with us. Was the perfect location!! Would definitely recommend!"
