About Peggy

We live right outside of Cincinnati OH in Northern Kentucky. We love vacationing and decided we wanted our own vacation home in the mountains of TN where life slows down and you can relax and enjoy the splendid wonders of the Great Smoky Mountains.

We hope you enjoy our cabin as much as we do.

Peggy purchased this cabin in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Peggy,

I tried to go in and write a review after we stayed at "Grin N Bear It", but it would not take -- don't know what the issue was, but afterwards I got back into the normal day to day routine.   Here is a review for you to cut and paste if you would like to.

Enjoyed our stay at Grin N Bear It.   The cabin was very convenient to Pigeon Forge, shopping, and restaurants.  We enjoyed the hot tub after hiking in the park and the guys enjoyed the pool table as well.   Peggy was great to work with, very responsive, and would rent one of her properties again.

Beautiful Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Grin and Bear It is a secluded mountain cabin but near to all the excitement of Pigeon Forge. We had 3 generations, nine people all together and there was plenty of room for all. We really enjoyed the porches and hot tub. I would highly recommend this property!

Not As Expected According to Other Reviews

  • 2 of 5

First let me start off by saying that I can usually find the positive in every situation, but this cabin just wasn't what we expected. The other reviews said how clean it was. It was not. There were cob webs everywhere, tons of months in the light fixtures, dust in the bathrooms, etc. Here are my complaints about this cabin:

1. There were 2 very small grills (this was hard for a family of 9)

2. The furniture looks old and worn.

3. The kitchen is very small.

4. Overall not very clean

5. We had to wait 30 minutes after check in for the cleaning lady to finish

6. The trash cans outside were filled making it difficult to store our trash

7. The pool sticks were not good. The tips were worn and there was no chalk

8. Old TV in game room

9. The comforter on the bed downstairs was torn

10. The beds were squeaky

11. The extra blankets were thrown in the closet in a ball so they looked dirty

Here are the positives:

1. Convenient location to town

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your opinion. Summer is a very busy rental season for the area. At times we are able to get our guests into the cabin early and on a very rare occasion they are delayed in getting it cleaned due to circumstances beyond their control. If a previous guest leaves the cabin with broken items and incredibly dirty it does require more time to clean than expected. We want everything to be working and it can delay checking in. We apologize for being a 1/2 hour late. My cleaning crew and I have reviewed your opinions and have taken steps to insure this doesn't occur in the future. Please note we do touch base with all of our guests upon arrival and ask for any input to correct any issues immediately. We did not hear from you that you weren't satisfied with the cleaning. Otherwise we would have been back within the hour to correct any issues if you had contacted us. We want to insure our guests are happy during their stay. It's my goal to insure my guests are happy!
