  • My Vacation Stay

    "The cabin was very nice but needs more insulation between the upstairs and down stairs bedrooms. We could hear every foot step. Even though we were at the front entrance it was still quiet. There needs to be some lights on the steps can't see them very well at night."

  • Comfort on vacation

    "We've rented a lot of cabins in the Smokies over the years. Most of them look a little tired but are still OK. Sunset Lodge, though not huge, was by far the nicest one we've ever stayed in. The extra decorating touches the owners have put into this cabin give it such a homey feeling. We also prefer to rent directly from the owner rather than property management companies. We didn't go to do all the tourist stuff. We went to spend time together as a family over Thanksgiving, hit some of our favorite spots and just relax so we spent a lot of time cooking, relaxing in the hot tub, watching football etc. It snowed a little on Thanksgiving Day which we loved. The beds were ultra comfortable. My little dog was even comfortable (we never left her alone though.). Wifi worked great as did cable TV. Nothing like snuggling up to the gas fireplace, watching the Macy's Day parade with a turkey in the oven and the scenery of the Smokies. It was a little hard to find after dark and our GPS's tended to disagree but we always found it eventually. There are some steep roads in that area. I recommend coming in during daylight the first time. I hope we can go and stay there again on our next trip. Thank you Carolyn for the swift email responses and hospitality. You're very fortunate to have such a lovely vacation home."

  • Exceeded Expectations

    "What a wonderful vacation! My family of 13 stayed at this house for seven days during our annual family vacation. This was our first time in Gatlinburg and our first time staying at Bearhart Lodge. When we arrived we were surprised at how large the cabin was. It was everything as described on VRBO and more. Frankly, the pictures don't do it justice. Each bedroom was decorated lovely and had a king size bed with a private bath. Who could ask for anything more? The air hockey, pool table and hot tub were all in working order and the kids spent most of their time downstairs taking advantage of them. The kitchen was adequately stocked and fresh linens were provided. The driveway was a little steep, but certainly manageable. We quickly learned to drive past the driveway, turn around and drive straight in. On occasion, we backed in so we could pull straight out. We had five cars and a trailer and had enough parking for all. It is a ten minute drive up the mountain from the main thoroughfare between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. You will see a beautiful view during your drive up but there is a limited view from the lodge. The Gatlinburg Visitor's Center is located at the turnoff to Wiley Oakley Road. We took the trolley to Downtown Gatlinburg for only 50 cents. You are better off taking the trolley since there is limited parking in Gatlinburg and it will cost you around $6.00 to park. We were paid a visit by a local baby bear who walked right up onto the front porch and looked around. After learning there was no food, he turned and walked away. That was the only time we saw a bear during our stay. It was a thrill for all of us. One note of concern though. The woodpeckers are spending a lot of time damaging the exterior. Wood chips were all over the deck floor and we had to sweep them up. One morning we were awakened by machine-gun pecking on the side of the house. We went outside and apparently scared it away. We never saw it again. This certainly isn't the owners fault, just a act of nature. I should point out we did not receive the email from the owner with instructions for disarming the alarm. So, of course, we set it off when entering. We were able to contact the owner immediately and she helped us disarm it. In fact, the owner was very responsive to all of our needs. She was easily contacted and responded immediately. Thank you Jammie for allowing us to stay at Bearhart Lodge. We hope to visit again soon."

  • Just what we expected

    "I first want to thank Princeton for working with us on our stay. We had originally had it planned for February but when our state was hit with 12+ inches of snow that made travel near impossible he allowed us to make last minute changes to our dates of stay. The condo was exactly as described. It's situated in a quiet complex with plenty of nature at your fingertips. We were even woken up one morning by turkeys. The kids have a wonderful play area during the months when the pool is a little chilly to get in as well as a nice area for the parents to kick back and relax as well. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay for a quick Spring Break getaway with our two sons. Thanks again for the wonderful weekend."
