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 STAY!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Bear Necessities right before Christmas and loved it! They even have a Christmas tree setup for this time of year which we plugged in every night. This house is in perfect location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Mr. Crum was great to deal with was very quick to respond when asked anything about our stay. I highly recommend this cabin, Thank you!

Perfect weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on New Years weekend celebrating our 1 year anniversary. It was clean and had everything we could have needed. The perfect distance between gatlinburg and pigeon forge and very easily accessible if you follow the directions given to you. We highly recommend anyone looking for a cabin to stay in and we will definitely be back!

A very nice, rustic cabin with all modern accommodations working very well.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mr. Crum for your refund check #1684. We enjoyed our limited stay. Wish we would have arrived Piegon Forge in daylight hours because we had never driven in the mountains at night.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bear Necessities for 6 days with our 5 yr old son. We had an absolute blast! This area was not affected by the wildfires, thankfully, and was the perfect location to get into Pigeon Forge as Gatlinburg was still closed due to the fires. My husband and I had stayed here for a weekend when our son was a baby, and this was still the perfect cabin to bring him back to experience the Smokies. There was still plenty of fun to be had in the area, and we'll certainly be back. We enjoyed the hot tub, and used the grill to cook a steak dinner, and the gas fireplace was used any time we were lounging around. Our little boy loved the game room upstairs, and we enjoyed spending time together relaxing.
