Wonderful Lodge with a scenic view!
My family of 8 had a wonderful stay in Black Bear Lodge. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We especially enjoyed the peaceful setting and scenic view. We also appreciated how the owner honors educators, veterans and church groups with a discount. My family would love stay at Black Bear Lodge again!
We stayed at this property July 2018 with 4 adults, 3 college aged boys, 4 teenagers and 1 child. It was a great fit for all of us. We tossed all the boys (6) in the lower level and it was perfect for them. Although there wasn't a shower, they had a bathroom and we managed. The pull out coach wasn't terribly comfortable in the basement, but with an air mattress on top, it was perfectly fine. The bedrooms in the home were very spacious. The living space was ample for all of us. The screened in decks were nice and the view from the decks and kitchen was stunning. The home was clean and the kitchen was stocked w nearly all needed items to cook full meals, which we did nightly. The property was in a nice quiet location, but close enough to stores, restaurants and attractions. Vicki was friendly and great to work with during our reservation booking. We also appreciated the 10% teacher/police officer discount.
Really enjoyed Big Black Bear cabin. Clean & comfortable! Loved, loved the screened in deck. The only thing we missed was having a shower on the bottom level but we made do. Was also handy to Pigeon Forge. We had neighbors but hardly could see or hear them because of the trees. Would rent again sometime!
We were not impressed it’s house
For the money we paid we were very disappointed. The house was not what it was advertised to be. The house was listed at 3000 sq ft but was only 2300. I’m sure they were including the porches in the footage. It offered a hot tub but it was filthy and had not been cleaned in a long time. The house itself was dirty. Cobwebs everywhere and if you walked across the floor barefoot your feet were black. There was suppose to be an Xbox 360. There was but the controllers were not working. We contacted owner about problems but he never solves any of them. We ended up buying controllers and took them home with us. Hot tub was never cleaned so we didn’t get to use it even though he said he was trying to get someone there. TVs in every room but only some of them worked. The furniture in living room needs replaced. You couldn’t sit on couch without sitting in a hole. There are 4 bathrooms but only 2 showers.
I would not recommend this place or ever use it again.
We were disappointed to read your review. Our earlier email correspondence did not reveal any displeasure on your part. Our home is our pride and joy and we are very proud of it and so are our guests. As you know, we were working diligently to get the the hot tub filter replaced. New filters, that had to be special ordered, were replaced and the hot tub is now perfectly clean. Additionally, we offered to reimburse you for the XBox controllers, but you turned us down. We have since purchased new controllers for the Xbox. The sofa in the living room is a sleeper sofa and is fairly new. We have sat on this sofa and have never experienced your description. Our guests rave on the cleanliness our Lodge. Please note, others have reviewed this Lodge and just do not have the same experience. We are sorry that you did not enjoy your experience at Black Bear Lodge. Most of our guest return year after year.
Wonderful Stay in an Awesome Cabin!!!
Our family of 9, ranging from one year old to 80 years old, stayed at the cabin. Most of our time was spent in the cabin, and everyone had a wonderful time!!! The cabin was clean and fully stocked. The location was great, away from it all, but close to everything There were some minor gliches...one of the jacuzzies did not work, but we had 2 more. A couple of the TVs in the bedrooms had cable signal go in and out. I spoke with Mr. Bridwell about the jacuzzi, and he had someone come check it within an hour or two. One of the best things about the cabin was the screened-in porches, which allowed us to sit outside day and night without getting eaten up by mosquitoes. The high chair, playpen, and gates came in handy with my grandson. The pictures of the cabin are true to form, no misrepresentation. We totally enjoyed our stay at Black Bear Lodge!!!
Beautiful Cabin and views
We loved our visit at this beautiful cabin. Very clean, comfy and cozy. Definitely would consider renting this cabin again. We spent quite some time enjoying the views. 5 thumbs up.
