Beautiful property- looks just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house- the entire family was very impressed! The view is amazing and we have been to many cabins in Gatlinburg- this, by far, topped them all... The drive up is a bit steep, but not at all what I had imagined based off of others reviews. Once you get to the cabin, you wont want to leave. Val and Renee have done a wonderful job in making sure all of your needs and wants are cared for and more. Loved it and cant wait to go back to make more family memories...

Definitely not disappointing! Better than the pictures, more than we expected! Our family of sixteen, between the ages of 8 and 71, all agreed that the Bear Paw was the place to be for spring break this year. The drive up the driveway is breathtaking, literally (best to be done in daylight the first time)! The cabin is unbelievably awesome; beautifully constructed with lots of room and conveniences for everyone. The view is one that can be enjoyed no matter what the weather is, day or night! Some of our activities included eating at The Peddler and The Park Grill, zip-lining, driving ATVs, horseback riding, doing the Escape in PF, shopping, taking a day trip to the Biltmore, and of course enjoying the natural beauty of the area and the National Park (various falls, Klingman's Dome, Cades Cove, etc.) Val and Renee were very pleasant and easy to work with in making arrangements for this stay at The Paw. Highly recommended place! Quite an adventure!

This cabin was perfect for celebrating my chapter's 15th anniversary. It was beautiful. All the handcrafted pieces throughout the cabin gave people something to talk about. Whether you want the view of the city or view of the mountains, this is the best spot in Gatlinburg as far as I can tell. Don't miss your opportunity to visit the mountains in luxurious style. I only wish we had more time here.

Pretended like we were Rich & Famous at Bear Paw Lodge!

I usually do not complete these surveys. The reason is I feel it is only my personal opinion. However the vast adjectives to describe your home is not opinion but factual. Magnificent! Grand! Initially when we reached the top of the mountain we almost turned around thinking to ourselves there is no way this enormous home is all for us. We literally spent about an hour just touring all 3 levels of your home. I was in awe the entire time (the magnificent mountain views didn’t hurt either). You decorated so beautifully with so much detail especially the themed bedrooms and gorgeous wood carvings. First Class! Already selected dates to return and just reserved our “borrowed” luxury log cabin in the sky. We are staying much longer this time around. Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Remote location perfect for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lodge for a vacation for extended family (16) vacation. We were pleasantly surprised that actual home lives up to the pictures online! The view was phenomenal from atop the mountain! Beautiful home inside and out... from the front door, to intricately carved posts, to a waterfall in the master bath... The kitchen was well appointed to cook for our large crowd. And we actually saw a Bear on our way back up the driveway one evening! However; the wifi was inadequate, and we could have used some instructions on how to operate the tvs, thermostats, and microwave. We would definitely consider Bear Paw for another family vacation.

House beautiful. Not clean. Great views of the mountains. Nice location.

  • 3 of 5

Easy to book. Easy to get in contact in case of a problem. Great location and beautiful home. Was not clean inside. Leaked on the bottom floor above the 2nd floor half bath and in the hallway downstairs. Had to put out trash cans in the hall because there was a leak from , I think in the master shower. Our towels smelled of cigarette smoke but we called and they came and replaced them. Any call we made because of a problem, someone was sent out to take a look. Easy to get to downtown gatlinburg, which was nice. Nice trail , although no signs to tell you which way to get to the visitors center. It's the left trail, by the way. A nice hike. We were able to see wildlife at the house. We saw a bear and a bobcat, which we were excited about.

Owner's Response: How exciting that you saw the wildlife during your stay at the cabin. We often see bears, turkeys, as well as white tail does and bucks. A terrific amenity of the cabin is the trail from our driveway to the visitor center; it's SO convenient! We are glad to hear that you found our cleaning and maintenance team to be very responsive to your calls for assistance. We pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service. We have been unable to duplicate the leak you experienced during your stay but have had similar situations at other cabins when either a shower door isn't closed properly or a water from a tub overflows onto the floor. We hope you will stay with us again in the future.
