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 Sevierville
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.

Would visit again
Overall we had a great vacation in a very nice cabin. Close to pigeon forge and Gatlinburg but secluded area about 3-4 min off the main road. No stairs to climb to get to cabin, could park right next to front porch. We went early spring and the trees were just starting to bud so you could see some of the neighboring cabins but it wasn’t a big deal. Also, we couldn’t find the listed grill. It also seems the lock may have recently been changed because our instructions on how to lock the door we’re incorrect.
Thank you very much for staying at Bear Necessities Cabin. I apologize for the confusion on the grill. It has been changed to a charcoal grill and is now located out front of the cabin. I hope that you will visit with us again sometime. Sincerely, Randall

Not bad needs cleaned better
Overall it's a nice cabin but really needs cleaned better. There was pee when you lifted toilet seat so we had to clean that. There was dog hair bad on floor, even dog food on kitchen floor. The couch on one end smelled like dog pee. It's a cute place but needs a good cleaning
Quiet and Comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay at Bear Necessities! The cabin was very clean and loved sitting on the back porch in the evening with a glass of wine and relaxing! The maintenance man James was super nice and was always available with any questions that we had!!! Super great week! Can't wait to go back!!!
