Great Time ! Great Owners ! Great Location to Pigeon Forge

  • 4 of 5

The owners of the cabin were very nice and easy to deal with. The cabin was very well decorated inside and felt very much like home. The bed was comfy and had a heart Jacuzzi in the bedroom. It was only about 1.5 miles from the main Pigeon Forge strip so it was perfect location to be just far enough away to have peace n quiet but close to drive back n forth whenever you wanted. It is on the bottom of the hill so it did lack a view but in return you had complete privacy and quiet. The cave room with hot tub was a neat little addition to have. Hot tub is a little older with only a few jets but it worked just fine. The kitchen was well equipped although we only used the fridge, but it was there if you wanted to cook. I would recommend this for a couple wanting a few nights away as it is an open loft style concept but you could sleep another couple/kids if you didnt mind. The only downfall is the driveway does need a suv or truck to go to the top but other than that I would not hesitate to stay here again. It was overall great time !! Thanks GUYS !!!

Bare Bottom Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Bare Bottom Cabin. It was clean and cozy and even decorated for Christmas when we arrived. The owners did a great job communicating with us and had there been a problem (there was none) I feel sure they would have handled it right away.

We are from Canada (now living in MS) so the setting and the nice cold crisp days made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay there again!

Not enough hot water for the heart shape tub . Waterfall did not work when it suppose to. Towel holder by sink ( bear ) broken . Hot tub not hot enough and cools off quick. Bath tub really slippery. Drive way has large rut close to top .

Owner's Response: The heart tub upstairs is in excess of 50 gal. The hot water heater is a standard 40 gallon heater. It is set up this way so people can't over-flow the tub and damage the floor/ceiling. We've never used it,,,,we prefer the hot tub in the cave. 2) The waterfall is described on VRBO and Flipkey as "seasonal," being on Mar.1 to Oct. 1. One year, it was left on by the previous Mgt. company during the winter and the entire cave floor was a skating rink when it over-flowed and froze.. Again, we are responsible for a certain degree of safety. You arrived Sun. Nov. 1 or there abouts...we checked out Nov 1st ourselves (the owners), so of course the waterfall was off for the winter. It's closed and winterized the same as you pool. 3) The bear towel holder is chipped/broken on one side. It's on a drywalled wall..thus..if it's taken off..there will be drywall work to repair as well. Not worth the hassle. Guests break stuff...thus there will be issues. 4) The hot the little door and TURN UP the heat and leave the cover on the hot tub's marked/set at 100F initially. Again, safety, we can't initially set it to over 100F....remember McDonald's coffee deal ? If it's not hot enough...turn it up and keep the cover on, esp. over-night. Children stay at the cabin too...we cannot turn it up before you arrive and risk scalding anyone. 5) Bath tub careful. I have the same one at home. 6). The driveway is platted by the City of Pigeon Forge as "Trentham Lane" (look it up on Google maps). Getting them to re-pave it isn't going to happen I guess. We put new gravel at the top every other year. We get up it just fine. It's in a mountainous area of the US...not New York City. Our Ford Explorer does just fine on it. We looked at many other cabins before buying this one...the driveway to Bare Bottom is better than most of them with a LEVEL place to park at the top. Rains wash the gravel down...this is nature...we can't help this. The Owners 11/2/2015.
