About Earl & Sandra Martin, or Stacy Cole

Welcome to our cabin high atop the mountain. Sandra and I, plus our kids and Ginger our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever want you to have a great time just as we do when we get the chance to stay in our cabin. We moved from the Twin Cities and settled down in a suburb of Tampa, Florida, but always loved the beauty of the Smoky Mountains as we drove between Florida and Minnesota. We always said that when we could get a place to share with our family and friends we would. We also wanted it to be a place that we could share with others. So please enjoy your stay and hope you feel refreshed and rejuvenated like we do.

Earl & Sandra Martin, or Stacy Cole purchased this cabin in 2008

Guestbook comments from the manager

There were 18 of us here this week from ages 3 to 89! We came from Seattle, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and North Carolina. We had a great time.

The cabin was awesome with plenty of room. Morning coffee on the deck, watching the Smokies, was a great way to start our days. The week was filled with fun, food and laughter. Our families got to reunite and make more memories together. We are already making plans for our return!

Not as nice as the first time, but still a great vacation experience.

  • 3 of 5

The older ones appreciated the new ADA improvement, however a lot of the railing was loose and some not even connected, this presented a safety hazard for all the young and older alike. Overall, its still a great spot but it could use some TLC.

I just stayed at The Bashful Bear for a family get together. The cabin was amazing and allowed for great views of the mountains and plenty of space for everyone to spend time together and have quiet time. The rooms were great and the cabin had everything you would need for a great stay!!

Very Nice ----beautiful view. A little strange with no in door stairs but actually became a positive not having to worry about the little ones falling.

Best Part check in already done! ---did not have to wait for paperwork. Drove straight into the cabin which was a huge plus for me.

Fabulous family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 22 (14 adults, 3 teens and 5 children) had a fun-filled vacation at this gorgeous mountain cabin. We all fit comfortably in our separate bedrooms and had ample room to congregate on the 3rd floor making full use of the living room/dining room area and the great decks. The game room was a pleasant surprise with pool table, shuffleboard, a soccer table and arcade video game. We were very happy that there was enough table & counter space in the dining area to accommodate all 22 of us! The location near the Smokey Mountain National park was perfect for us and the view from the decks was unbelievable. The only suggestion for improvement that I have is for them to hire a better cleaning service. It was surface cleaned and there was plenty of clean linen but it needs a good thorough cleaning. I do recommend the place and would come back again.

Not the best or cleanest.....

  • 1 of 5

There are a lot of houses being built around this home. The construction traffic and the trucks blocking access was really bad. Also we were told the home had new carpet..... however - the entire second floor smelled like dog urine and clearly there was an animal in the home - there were claw marks on every door frame on each level. Also - I would have thought for the amount per week the house would have been in better shape. The first and second floor bathrooms were really run down (specifically mold in the showers - and a really poor attempt to caulk over the mold). Also every pull out couch had mouse poo in them. Would have been nice if they cleaned the couches first (a lot of food wrappers under the furniture - hence the mice problems).

Owner's Response: We do apologize that your experience with us was anything less than excellent. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over construction traffic that happens within the resort. As for the housekeeping and maintenance issues that were stated, we responded immediately and took care of the issues you made us aware of during your stay. Each property is inspected behind housekeeping to ensure that the home is in check-in condition for every new guest. However, the property is large and on occasion things might get over looked. Bashful Bear does have a total of 6 pullouts and there were only 2 of them that had an issue. You mentioned a urine smell after requesting the fireplace be lit on that floor. When we came out to check, the odor came from the fireplace and was the chemical included in the natural gas line. Being that we are in the woods and small critters do make it inside of log cabins from time to time as kids leave doors open. We did respond to the complaint as soon as it was reported and made arrangements with pest control to address and take care of the issue immediately. The scratch marks you found on the inside of the guest bathroom were from the previous owner allowing pets which were locked up while they were out, we do not allow pets due the previous damage caused.

Awesome place for a large gathering

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 6 nights over the holidays and it was fantastic. The cabin is beautiful and everything worked great and was clean. The management company responded promptly to the few requests we had. Had 28 people in the cabin and there was plenty of room and everyone had a great time. Definately will return!!
