This is our second year staying in The Preserve Resort. We loved BearSlide Inn. Very nice cabin with awesome views.
Sarah S.Nov 2020
We had so much fun! Loved the accommodations, games, hot tub..:perfect for a getaway!!!
stephanie s.Aug 2020
This was an amazing experience for my family. We absolutely loved the Bear Slide Inn Cabin it was clean and well equipped and decorated perfectly! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The kids especially loved the hot tub on the deck and my husband and I couldn’t get over the view! We can’t wait to come back again someday!
Carmen E.Aug 2020
My family and I LOVED our cabin. Everything was perfect. We will definitely be back!
Frederick S.Jul 2020
Lost water for two days and entire resort has water shortage issue. We love the Bear Slide but until the water issue is fixed it's more camping than most want. Low pressure the whole time and waking up to no water, having to dump water from hot tub into toilet to flush is not something we planned. We love the BEAR SLIDE and have stayed there several times but this trip was way too much work and worry. The worst part was that we were not told the day of arrival that there was no water till we walked in the door.
Frederick, thank you for your review. We apologize for the poor communication prior to your visit regarding the water shortage and regret to hear this was your experience. We strive to have excellent, guest-focused service and we apologize that we missed the mark this time. We certainly appreciate your feedback, and we look forward to having the chance to better impress you in the future.

We had a great time. The location was perfect and the view was very nice.

The trek up the mountain to BearSlide Inn just hints at what awaits. The cabin is perched on the mountain side and has amazing views. My whole family was in awe of the black bears that roam the area at night. The cabin itself overall was comfortable and had nice furnishings. The decks are awesome, especially the porch swing. The cabin was very clean upon our arrival. We would definitely go back.
Esther V.Mar 2020
Clean cabin , beautiful view
Debbie R.Dec 2019
We made great memories here at Bear Slide Inn!
Jeffrey G.Nov 2019
The cabin was incredible. It was very beautiful and clean. It was stocked with all the basic toiletries that one would need. Within 10 minutes of gas stations and within 15 minutes of grocery stores. Will definitely be back!
Maria T.Jul 2019
Loved everything about the cabin the feel so cozy and peaceful!!!! The view amazing day and night not what I was expecting it was just so perfect !!!! Did zip lining mountain coaster went to bird paradise close to pigeon forge and Gatlinburg will be coming back loved the whole experience my kids absolutely loved it so much to do in the cabin itself everything else is a bonus!!!!!
Karla Z.Jul 2019
The view was absolutely beautiful. Only downside the upstairs would be better if it was a bedroom and not open concept. Also the cabin had too many nick naks and not enough space for clothing and travelers items. Loved our getaway and would love to go back to The Preserve Resort sometime in the future!
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Karla! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful views. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we will schedule a service visit to ensure adequate storage is provided for future guests. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

Everything was perfect! I loved it so peaceful I didn’t want to come home
Courtney W.Jun 2019
The place was awesome. You know when you look at pictures online and it’s never really what is shown? Well this place actually looks as the pictures do. This was our first cabin rental and this will not be the last.
Bryan C.Jun 2019
Spotless, well equipped, and true to the description online. Would definitely stay again
Lisa W.Jun 2019
The best week my family and I have had! The amenities were wonderful and the layout of the cabin was perfect for our family of four. The view was amazing! If you bring along your four-legged family member you will have to be creative in finding bathroom areas. We hated saying goodbye when our week was over and will definitely be returning again!!!
Matthew C.May 2019
Everything about this stay was amazing. The view from the cabin was great. It had a covered outdoor deck with hot tub. The management paid attention to every detail, ensuring there was dishwasher/laundry detergent, toiletries, kitchenware, utensils. The layout of the cabin was perfect. Just what we needed to decompress. You can go into town and there are an endless number of activities to keep you busy. You can also explore the park or not even leave the cabin. Be mindful of where you leave food. We did not follow warning and left some food in the car and found the next morning a bear had opened the car door and ate the food while we were asleep! I would come back here in a heart beat.
Patrick P.Apr 2019
We loved everything about the BearSlide Inn. Our family of seven travels every April school vacation week. This trip was the most peaceful and relaxing yet! Thank you for the wonderful memories 😍❤
Kelly M.Mar 2019
Cabin fever as absolutely amazing! We would definitely recommend to anyone.
Chad L.Jan 2019
Great lodge in a great location. Loved the view, hot tub, games and everything else.
Stephanie R.Jan 2019
7 (2 adults and 5 kids) slept comfortably in this beautiful cabin. It was clean, well stocked with the essentials, and we couldn't have been happier.
Amanda T.Dec 2018
We really liked this cabin. Everything was clean and well decorated. It's very high up in the mountains so if you're bringing a dog there isn't much grass for them to use. There is a spot 6ish cabins down that's more grassy though. The cabin has everything you need and the hot tub was really nice. My one and ONLY complaint is how far it is to a store (25ish minutes #city girl) so make sure you bring groceries at check in or no morning coffee for you!
Stephanie B.Dec 2018
We loved staying in this cabin. The view and cabin were beautiful. Easy and fast to deal with Vacasa.
Lindsay W.Dec 2018
Short weekend trip with family that was much needed. Cabin had great views and especially the sunrise. Hot tub on top deck was a plus!
Teresa A.Nov 2018
We had a great time.
Rachel M.Nov 2018
This cabin is beautiful with awesome views! The kitchen has everything you need and more. We enjoyed the pool table and air hockey table! The hot tub was very clean and well maintained. Great memories we will never forget!
Thomas C.Nov 2018
The cabin was a wonderful family experience! We loved the huge picture windows that brought the outdoor view right into the living spaces. The cabin was very clean, cozy and comfortable, and the layout was very functional. The view from the back porches was incredible, and we loved the rocking chairs and swing. A big plus was that we were able to bring our beloved dog, because he is a big part of our family. That factor helped us to settle on this cabin when we were looking for a rental property. We can't wait to return for our next vacation.
Delana B.Sep 2018
This is our second stay at Bear Slide Inn, it’s such a wonderful cabin and the view is beautiful! Close to Cades Cove. Peaceful neighborhood and we saw a bear the last time we were there. Great place to stay!
Janet K.Aug 2018
Very cute cabin and spacious. It was very clean with plenty extras. It resides in a whole row of cabins that are very similar. Would recommend this cabin.
kim R.Aug 2018
I loved the view but wish the trip up there was not so far away from pigeon forge. The road up was very steep.
Samantha V.Jul 2018
The cabin was beautiful had alot of space very clean when we arrived would recommend
Adam P.Jul 2018
The area had a beautiful view and was very peaceful.
Becky C.Jun 2018
Home was nice, especially for the price. Seemed to be pretty clean, with several nice touches like laundry detergent, extra blankets and pillows. The home is one of the few that has nice exterior decor and landscaping, including a bench. The interior decor was nice but dusty. There were several cobwebs in corners or hanging from ceiling, but we saw no bugs. The throw rugs were pretty worn too. The biggest disappointment was the neighborhood pool. It is much smaller in person and all of the lounge chairs were busted out and unusable. The street to neighborhood is very hilly and twisty but that’s pretty common for the area. I give the house 4 stars, but the pool 2 stars.
Melissa H.Jun 2018
This was the best cabin we have stayed in since coming to Pigeon Forge. The cabin was very clean and decorated cute. It was stocked with everything you would need and that was a first for us on vacation. Would stay again at this cabin in the future!
Cassie S.Jun 2018
Very clean, great cabin for a family! Everything you need and beautiful scenery all around. We will be back.
Ross P.May 2018
we just spent 8 days in this cabin. we really like the preserve resort, it's about 12 miles to pigeon forge in the wears valley area. now to the cabin, we had some issues, the main one, is the fridge started beeping on day one, and it was about every 30 seconds, and it done it the whole time we were there, i unplugged it for an hour and plugged it back in and it continued to beep, it was the most annoying thing ever. the dishwasher is very old, and it wouldn't dissolve the pods, we had to run every load of dishes 3 times to get the pod to dissolve. the couches are very dated and very uncomfortable, there is not one baking dish in the cabin, i bought one to use for our stay. the cabin overall is a nice cabin it just could use some updating. BEWARE OF THE BEARS!! i was sleeping and around 2 a.m. i heard growling outside of the cabin, i went to the kitchen window, and there was a huge bear at the cabin next door and he grabbed the supposed bear proof garbage can holders and he picked it up and threw it over to get the trash out of it. i grabbed my keys and pushed the panic button on my car, and he stood on his hind legs and was growling, and then ran off. i was shocked at the strength and power that bear had. i want to make it clear, we had a fantastic vacation, and i would recommend this cabin to other travelers, it just needs some updates with some of the furnishings. we travel to the area twice a year, and will consider this cabin on our next visit.

I have been staying in the preserve resort for over 10 years now. I loved that the owners said they had finally realized a dream by owning their own cabin! I understand what they mean and for awhile their cabin was my cabin and I took care of it and enjoyed it as such! I appreciated that pets are allowed! My girl loved the trip as well. I booked the cabin to celebrate my mother’s birthday, and I brought along her sisters and my 89 year old Grandma! I have mostly all great things to say about this cabin, but a few things would really make it fantastic!!! The cabin was clean except for the bedspread on the master bed downstairs- it had what appeared to be red stains on the underside of the bedspread. The bed upstairs had rough to the touch sheets and the bed was like sleeping on springs! A little better quality mattress would make this sleeping environment amazing! The only real issue that was very disappointing and near unbearable was the heat- when we arrived the heat was set on 55. I know this is the instructions upon discharge, But the cabin was ice cold and I knew my grandma could not be sittting in that environment long. I turned the heat up- but four hours later it was only up to 64 degrees. The vents downstairs felt like they were putting out cold air? I kept putting blankets in the dryer to warm my family. I finally called in around 7pm and got a call back after 11pm, but we were tucked in and I didnt notice it until morning. In the morning the cabin was 70 degrees- more manageable but still pretty cool. It eventually resolved but never reached the temperature we set the thermostat to? I’ve never had that problem in these cabins so I’m not sure if something was wrong with the system? The heat in the upstairs cabin was strong and worked fine-the vents put out nice hot air, but this did nothing for the downstairs, especially the first night. I tried everything I could, I even tried to get the fireplace to blow out heat to help the situation downstairs, but it would not. Our first night was rough due to this issue and I felt horrible for my family. The positives- the cabin is decorated very nicely! It’s beautiful! Lots of little touches to make it feel like a home. The hot tub was very nice and well maintained! Pet friendly! This is huge to me! I’ve always traveled with my dog! And this cabin, unlike others that are pet friendly in the resort, this one has a small grass area for your pet to potty. This is a huge plus! The porch swing was really nice! We all enjoyed it! The view is beautiful both upstairs and downstairs! I would definitely rent from this owner again- the heat issue was probably a fluke! Like I said in all my years coming to this resort, I’ve never had that issue. Nice job to the owners for all their personal touches! :)
Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience with the cabin's temperature. We checked the heat and it was working as intended. The cabin temp was set at 55 degrees, which is normal for that time of year and it does take some time to warm up the downstairs area. If our guests wish to stay with us we would like to know ahead of time so that we can turn the heat up prior to their check in. This will prevent future scenarios of guests being cold. We certainly want them to visit the cabin in the future. We would be happy to turn the heat up for them. Thank you.

This is our 3rd Smokies cabin rental, and the 2nd with Moose Creek (now Vacasa). We only planned to stay 3 nights, and were ok with getting a slightly smaller cabin with other cabins nearby.
This cabin is attractively decorated and is very cozy. The oversize jacuzzi tub is located in the bathroom off of the 2nd floor bathroom. We could not get the jets to work, which was disappointing.
The master shower backed up, and I called the manager to let them know so they could fix it before the next guests arrived. They offered to come and take care of it for us, but by that point we were on our last day and preferred not to have someone come in.
The hot tub is on the 2nd floor deck, and is super nice.
The view is spectacular.
Unfortunately, these cabins are not well insulated, and the party occurring next door definitely disrupted our peaceful stay. The first night, just a few hours after our arrival, I awoke thinking someone was beating on our cabin. Turns out it was the cabin next door, and they ended up speeding off in the car a few minutes later. This was sometime after 1 a.m. Over the next couple of days, it was rowdy and noisy off and on. We have 4 children aged 10-18, so we are used to noise, but this was a different level.
I went to open the microwave, and the handle (with multiple layers of glue) was detached from the base of the door. I can't explain it, but every time we used the microwave we had to pull from the top of the handle and attempt to not pull off the handle, which was also attached to the lower half of the face of the microwave door.
Most areas of the cabin were clean. The walls need dusting. I went to pull a cookie sheet out of the oven drawer, and it still contained the remains of two slabs of fish that had been cooked during a previous rental.
Overall, it is an attractive property. Just needs a little more TLC.
We are sorry to see there were some disappointments with this visit. The cookie sheet has been replaced, the jets have been fixed, the drain is working, and the microwave has been replaced.

I was there for two nights in mid October and everything
Marisa M.Oct 2017
It was a great cabin with a great view! Very roomy and clean. The drive up at night was a little stressful, but not too bad if you take it slow. The roads are paved. My kids had a great time, too! We would definitely stay there again!
Kim S.Sep 2017
The porches are a perfect place to find peace and quiet from the city. Either swing on the porch swing or sit in the hot tub upstairs on the porch.
Perfect for all ages. We went to see our Grandkids ranges from just born that week, a 2 1/2 year old and an 8 year old. When the older ones came up to the cabin they had a GREAT time. Didn't have to worry about them being board at the house.
When we were alone we got our peace and rest lol.
This cabin is far enough out of the huddle and bussle of Pigeon Forge but close enough to enjoy everything.
Please remember there are bears around we did get a chance to watch one very close to the cabin just follow the instruction posted in the cabin for your protection.
Have fun and enjoy the wonderful cabin just like we did.
Jeff M.Sep 2017
Great experience with beautiful views
Tim S.Sep 2017
A very nice cabin. It made our stay one of the most relaxing. We came down with the internet for rest and relaxation and this cabin and area and that is exactly what we did. Thank you and we look forward to staying again.
Danny K.Aug 2017
This cabin was amazing. It is advertised to sleep 8 people and it does this easily. The decor is amazing. There was a lot of time put into this theme. We loved it and will definately return again.
Terry S.Aug 2017
We have stayed in several different cabins over the last 4 1/2 years and this is the prettiest cabin we've ever stayed in, comfortable and relaxing. Plenty of towels,

Great cabin! Great Resort!
Well decorated and clean!!
Wish the community pool was bigger and hot tub was hotter..
Brenda P.Jul 2017
We loved being able to come back to the cabin and eat a meal. Will probably never stay in a hotel ever again. Really loved the Park .... less into the tourist-trap type offerings.
Winona T.Jul 2017
Our family enjoyed this cabin. Nice for a small family, very clean and cozy, we would definitely stay again!
Wynoka T.Jun 2017

Jeff K.Apr 2017
We really loved the spaciousness of the cabin and the variety of games. The hot tub was nice, too. The drive up the mountain is a little scary, so we recommend only driving in the daylight, but it is beautiful.
Lisa F.Mar 2017
The cabin was beautiful and the views were amazing! Loved the layout of the cabin and having a deck for both floors was great! My family enjoyed their stay very much! We would definitely stay in this cabin again!!!
Amber M.Mar 2017
This cabin is awesome, so cozy and warm! It was awesome being able to bring our dog and the price was great also! Booking was so easy, called up and talked to a lady named Alora (something like that), she was great and made it simple. Hot tub was great and the jacuzzi tub was much needed after a day in the slopes!
