"This was such a lovely cabin in a great location. It had all the comforts of home in the beautiful foothills of the Smokey Mountains not far from Gaitlinburg. There were 8 of us and we were very comfortable. The roads are very curvy and can be a little scary at night and the driveway is VERY steep, but I can't find any other faults with Bear Necessities. Thanks for a great stay!"

"We have rented dozens of cabins and condos in the area, this one ranks as one of our favorites! Close in, no steep mountains to negotiate, convenient to everything the area has to offer. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. East Tennessee was experiencing record heat when we were there, but the cleaning crew had the AC already adjusted for us when we arrived (not always the case with rentals)!! Thank you Mr and Mrs Melton for allowing us to enjoy your cabin, we'll return soon!"

"Such a great location near to the Cosby entrance to the smokies. An easy drive to Gatlinburg if you want to do that, but far enough to go nowhere near it too! The Cabin is super cozy and comfortable, the creek area is perfect. The children had a lot of fun and we had plenty of relaxation. Carver's orchard is just around the corner for local produce and country dinners. A super hot tub with a gorgeous view for after a days hiking. We will be back for sure! Next time we plan to take tubes for the creek."

"We've been renting cabins in the smokys for years and this cabin is perfect weekend getway. The cabin was comfortable and clean and had a beautiful view! We were so happy to find the cabin stocked, loved the the hot tub. It felt very private and was enough room for all of us. The road up is curvy but the location more than worth it. The view is so amazing, like a picture spot. Me and my husband really enjoyed the break and are hoping to come back."
