About Randall Crum

A native of East Tennessee I now live in Savannah, Georgia. For all of the beauty that Savannah has to offer it does not compare to the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains. Bear Necessities is a beautiful and wonderful place to stay. When we stay at Bear Necessities it is very hard to leave. Most of our guest say the same thing.

Randall Crum purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Randall Crum chose East

I fell in love with Bear Necessities as soon as I saw it. I told my real estate agent to do the deal immediately, without hesitation and I have had no regrets. This peaceful setting is one that is very hard to leave once you have spent some time there.

What makes this cabin unique

Peacefulness. It is so relaxing. I find it interesting that most of my guest to Bear Necessities rarely ever leave the cabin. It is close enough to the area attractions but once your there it really is hard to leave.

Great Cabin !

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely stay there again. We visited the Smoky's for a motorcycle vacation. The location was great and we had access to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There is one sharp curve just before the cabin but didn't have any problems pulling the trailer to the cabin. Nice and clean. Hot tub was awesome. We didn't have any issues at all !!

Very clean relaxing and perfect for us and our pets. Enjoyed our stay very much.

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a more relaxing place. Our dogs were very comfortable. 1st time away for 1 of our dogs and she is usually hard to please even at home. The cabin could not have been any cleaner. It has been several years since we have been to a cabin and this one could not have been better! Would not have changed anything about it. Loved our trip and the cabin was the very best part!!!

Great Place! Highly Recommend It!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! The cabin was very clean, everything was in place as stated and had all the needed provisions for our stay. Very easy access to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge as it was located directly between the two. What a treat to come home to after a long, busy day of sightseeing. Thank you for a great, affordable place to stay and would highly recommend it to anyone! Thx again! Steve Gregg Bucyrus, Oh.

Cozy cabin in great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our three night here at Bear Necessities - it was clean and we experienced no issues. It was very conveniently located with easy access to both Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg/National Park. The back porch was very private and we enjoyed drinking our morning coffee out there. The hot tub was also nice to enjoy after a long day of hiking. It's a great place to stay if looking for a cozy cabin with everything you need for a few days. We will certainly look at booking again next time we are in the area.

Owner's Response: Dear Adrianne, Thank you very much for staying at Bear Necessities Cabin. I am glad you enjoyed your visit there. The back porch is my favorite place too. I have to work when I am traveling so I go out there with my lap top and it seems like the day just flies by. Not like working at all. I enjoy my morning coffee out there too. I hope that you will come back and visit again sometime soon. Sincerely, Randall
