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 Pigeon Forge
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.

Getaway with the wife
The wife and I took a little overnight trip away. This was the first time we had been alone in in about 8 months. We came into town and got checked in, spent a little time in Gatlinburg and went back to the cabin to spend the rest of the night melting away our worries in the hot tub. The property manager was very helpful and accommodating. An added bonus to the cabin is that there was no cell service for us, which helped us to unplug. If that scares you though dont worry, there is wifi and a phone!
I am glad that you enjoyed your short getaway to Bear Necessities Cabin. I hope that you will visit again sometime. Maybe when you can stay a little longer?
Not what I was expecting
We arrived right at check-in and the cabin was very warm, especially upstairs where the pool table and basketball hoops were. We couldn’t stand to stay up there to even play a game that night. Took till the next day for it to cool off. Hot tub did not work most of the time there. Service had to come twice and only got to use the last night there. The cabin could be a lot cleaner and there is also a odor. I tried to use the Keurig for coffee and found bugs in it where you pour the water. It could definitely use some repairs also. The one good thing about the place is the location.
I am so sorry that you had a bad experience at this rental. This is not typical for this cabin. It normally receives great reviews and comments.
The hot tub has been repaired but I do hate that you could not enjoy it both nights. I have let the cleaner know about your concerns regarding the bugs and the smell.
I hope your next VRBO experience will be better than this one was.
Excellent-- very nice accommodations and location
Thank you very much for staying at Bear Necessities Cabin. I hope to host you again sometime soon.
Another amazing visit!
We had another amazing stay at Bear Necessities! We stayed there on our honeymoon 3 1/2 years ago and decided then we would come back. We loved the charm and amenities. It’s conveniently located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We did notice since our last visit that it is need of some sprucing up. We will definitely be back and hopefully sooner then the last time.
Thank you very much for staying at Bear Necessities Cabin again. We do plan on doing some updating to the cabin soon. The floors are going to be either refinished or replaced.
Please come again.
Home away from home
From beginning to the end of our trip everything was perfect. Home was clean and furnished with all the amenities. Very convenient to Gatlinburg and pigeon forge! We will be back!!

Great stay at Bear Necessities!
My family of 4 had a great stay at Bear Necessities. Great location with easy access to Pigeon Forge and the Gatlinburg Bypass. Well equipped with all the essentials and the kids especially enjoyed the game room and hot tub. Being able to bring a pet was an added convienience. This is the second time I've rented from this owner in 2 years and would not hesitate to do so again. Highly recommend a stay at any of his properties. Thank you! Look forward to our next stay already.
