Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family gathered from Florida, Georgia, Indiana, South Carolina & West Virginia to celebrate our mother’s 75th birthday. Our choice of Mama Bear Lodge was the best. We had a great time! Next thing to being home! The screened porch was perfect and the wrought iron rockers went for hours (so much that we hope to buy a few for our own porches). Thanks for providing us this perfect spot to make another great family memory.

Group of 6 couples In a great cabin.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned back from a great time at Mama Bear Lodge. We had a total of 12 people. All married couples who decided to go away together. The plus is that each bedroom has their own bathroom and lots of living space. There was so much room in the cabin for everyone. I was extremely nervous about cabin living, since this was my first time, however Mama Bear was above and beyond. We enjoyed the third floor living area with the pool table and couches, Then was able to relax on the second floor living area as well as use both balcony areas. This cabin is very close to all the attractions in Pigeon Forge as well as not too far from Gaitlinburg. Everything worked in the cabin, I saw no bugs during our stay. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. We were very happy with our stay. Thank you to the owners. I wanted to write in the guest book, but a party of 12 people did not have a pen :) Also please do the Alphine Coaster that is within minutes from the cabin, THAT was awesome!

Family Reunion in a Fantastic Cabin!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a family reunion that included 10 adults and 8 children. The cabin and all it's amenities enhanced our time together as a family. Cabin was spotless, well stocked with kitchen items, plenty of towels, blankets, and linens. Everything worked: appliances, hot tub, plumbing, TV's. Zero complaints. The cabin looks and feels new. Very children friendly. The two living areas (one on the main floor and one on in the basement) were great for groups to play games in or just talk. Lots of chairs for meals. All 3 decks were fun to have: including swinging benchs, bar b q, lots of rocking chairs and outdoor furniture to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Even though we were on a street with numerous cabins, we did not hear anyone else. Still felt like we were secluded up on a mountain! Great cabin! Would recommend it to anyone for a safe, clean, spacious get together.

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time while staying in this cabin. My new husband and I rented this cabin to bring our families together to celebrate our marriage. The 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms made every couple comfortable and made them feel like they had their own space. We had 11 adults and 3 children staying in this cabin and I never felt like we were on top of each other. We loved sitting out on the patios enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery. The cabin was clean and just as described. The only complaint I have is that we could only find 1 big skillet and that wasn't enough when cooking for 14 people. Oh, and we couldn't find any dishclothes or wash clothes for dishes, but that was an easy enough fix and we just picked up a few from Wal-mart. This cabin was well worth the money and we will forever have fond memories of the time we spent there.

Family vacation 2015

  • 1 of 5

This property is absolutely beautiful and accommodates ten people nicely. This poor review is due to our inability to use the master bedroom, which was definitely a huge selling point for the property. Upon our arrival we noticed a horrible smell coming from that room. It is an odor that resembles a decomposing animal. We followed protocol and notified housekeeping and the owner. We didn't receive any assistance on the first day and an air purifier was brought in on Sunday by housekeeping. This has not resolved the issue at all. No follow up call by the owner to check on the situation. We will have a great week on vacation without using this room which isn't ideal; however it does leave me with a poor taste in my mouth about the customer service that is provided once you've paid for the property. So I would say renter beware.

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know about this issue. We did receive a call from you on the Saturday evening of your check-in and we contacted the housekeeper to ask her to bring over an air purifier and also spray Fabreeze. She was able to bring over an air purifier from the storage unit on Sunday morning first thing. Unfortunately, she was not able to get it and bring it over on Saturday night. We did try calling the cabin but did not get an answer and we do have someone try to make customer service calls to all of our properties within 2 days of arrival but she also did not get an answer at the cabin either. Our housekeeper indicated you spoke to her twice on Tuesday by telephone about another issue and you did not mention anything about the odor persisting. We assumed everything was OK but obviously when we received your notice on VRBO did we realize there was still an issue. Today we spoke to the housekeeper again during the turn from your departure and the arrival of the next guest she indicated there was no oder that she could detect. She also indicated you left the cabin about very clean. That is truly appreciated. Thanks for you letting us know and your gracious comments about our cabin. Craig, Elaine, Toney & Linda

Couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

There have been 6 couples that have stayed in this cabin for 4 years straight. We come from Ohio and Kentucky. Even though some of the couples have changed over the years, the fun times have not. We really enjoy staying here and relaxing either in the rocking chairs on the front porch or in the hot tub on the back deck. It's a perfect place to stay because each room has it's own private bath. That's important to all of us. We all love sightseeing and the shows in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg . We are already talking about the trip next year! Love it

The location and structure of the property were pleasant to the eye. The cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Dead bugs all over the floor, dusty surfaces, paper trash on the floor in the bedroom. It was obvious the cabin had not been cleaned before we arrived. We were disappointed because the cabin's cleanliness did not match up to other cabins in the same resort.

Owner's Response: We're sorry you were disappointed in our cabin. We can assure you it had been cleaned. This time of year we have lots of lady bugs. The US Forestry Department releases lady bugs every fall (they help prevent other types of insects), so we get lots of them every Fall and Winter. They are harmless - just annoying, and our quarterly pest control measures do not get rid of them. We try our best to make our cabin pleasant for all our guests, and apologize for your inconvenience.
