Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay at Smoky Bears Play House. Your refundable $100 damage deposit will cover them. Your deposit will be returned within 7 days if there are no damages, pet related clean up, excessive human related clean up, damages or missing items reported by the cleaning staff.

This cabin does not have a yard so you will have to walk your pet.

Smoky Bears Play House is perfect for couples or families looking for a great and convenient location. We welcome well behaved pets. For non pet owners rest assured that the cabins are thoroughly cleaned after each pet and because there are no carpets you probably won't even know a pet has stayed.

Overall the cabin was wonderful. The only complaint I have is that the furniture was very uncomfortable.

Lots of FUN!

  • 4 of 5

Had a blast at this cabin! We stayed here a couple of years ago and loved it so we came back. The only downfalls were the grill was no longer on the back porch and a few of the lightbulbs were out throughout the cabin.

Owner's Response: Amy, Thank you for coming back to Smoky Bears Play House Cabin. My insurance carrier lowered my premium for moving the grill off the deck and out front of the cabin. We then converted it to a charcoal only one. I am sorry that you did not know this before this stay. Thank you for letting me know about the light bulbs. I will get a maintenance order submitted for those to be taken care of. I look forward to having you back again. Sincerely, Randall

Our family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Cabin is very nice. It would have been a little better if we did not loose power due to the wind storm that night, but we just went out for breakfast.

Owner's Response: Dear Tammy, Thank you for staying at Bear Skye Cabin. I am very sorry that the wind storm made the power go off during your stay. It was restored so I hope that your lunch and dinner plans went as planned. Please visit again sometime. Sincerely, Randall

My Second (but not my last) Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here a couple years ago and had planned to stay last year but the fires prevented that from happening. I did not experience some of the negative issues that others mentioned. We were here for 7 nights. It snowed about 4 inches so that was nice. We plan to return next year.

We do try to address any concern presented by a guest whether in a review or otherwise. So, if it has been mentioned in a past review we have tried to correct it. I look forward to having you back again next year. Thanks again, Randall
