  • Amazing cabin, awesome views!!

    "Let me start by saying that I don't think we could have rented from better people! Mrs Ginger and Mr Jimmy went above and beyond to accommodate us. On to the cabin..we had 4 adults and 1 child and had PLENTY of space. The 2 master suites were awesome! There were gas fireplaces in both bedrooms and the living room! There were also nice jacuzzi tubs in both suites, as well as 2 full bathrooms. The pool table provided a lot of entertainment. The side deck included a nice charcoal grill and a nice hot tub. You can't beat a nice relaxing soak in the hot tub while taking in such a beautiful view!! They seemed to think of everything, DVD players in all rooms, fully stocked kitchen, satellite tv, and WIFI!! We had great signal on our cell phones as well! They also provided salt for the steps in case they iced over, which they did lol. We stayed cozy and warm inside as a winter storm blew thru. We felt very safe up there with the added protection of a front door security camera. I could go on and on about the great experience we had. If you are looking for a nice, affordable cabin to rent, THIS IS IT!!"

    "This was a wonderful place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone. The cabin was super clean, anything you needed was there, and the scenery was beautiful. Our GPS got us back to the cabin from all over and it was close enough to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, or Gatlinburg, but far enough away that you felt at peace. We particularly loved sitting out on the deck watching the stars at night. On our last night we got to see a shooting star. We wished to go back!! Ray was great about checking in with us. We are planning to go back soon and hope that we can stay here again! Thanks Ray and Dana for allowing us to use your 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."

  • Fabulous

    "We had a wonderful holiday here. The condo was well equipped and in beautiful surroundings. Our 2 children aged 14 and 11 loved the pool and games room. It was perfectly situated for all our needs and really comfortable after a long journey from England. A pleasure to deal with everyone involved, you all made it very easy and communication was really good. If we visit again we would definitely want to stay at Big Bear Lodge again!"
