Very nice and clean cabin. We enjoyed our stay and was a perfect size for just the 2 of us.
Robert V. Jun 2022
Very nice deck and all the interior was designed like a log cabin. it was very cozy and comfortable. Great location for many attractions and still off the beaten track. We had all the amenities of home and the quiet nature around us. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone and would stay here again.
Samantha T. Jun 2022
We stayed for 4 days and we loved every minute. We wanted seclusion and quiet and we really got it. It wasn't that far out of town where we couldn't go get something from the grocery in a 10 minute trip. The bed was comfortable, the sleeper sofa was perfect and comfortable for the kids. We loved it here and we would definitely stay again.
Thomas W. May 2022
Loved the solitude the cabin provided. Cabin was clean, everything was as advertised. Would definitely book again.
Amy K. Apr 2022
It was a clean cabin. However there was just a few things wrong. The blinds need to be replaced, the windows didn’t have screens so we couldn’t open the windows for long periods of time, and the jacuzzi tub buttons are really hard to use. The cabin did have a smell to it when we first came in but we just thought air room spray while we were out. Other than that. The cabin was clean and nice. We spent most of our time out in the hot tub.
Manager response:
We appreciate you choosing to stay with us, Amy. This home is scheduled for a deep clean, and we will check the blinds for repair. Thank you!

enjoyed stay. was cut short because of forrest fires/evacuation. would definitely book again. Tad bit outdated but clean. Getting in driveway was tricky and getting out was even trickier. all in all this place was awesome. look fwd to goin back

The only reason not a 5 is…. We arrived on Friday night and could not build a fire because it was not a gas fireplace and no wood. We loved the cabin however!

It does need a couple of updates… bathroom where shower and toilet are located needs a new door badly. Also flooring need to be replaced.
Mini blinds some of the slats were broken which is an easy fix with extra slats located at bottom of the blinds. It was a great cabin and everything was clean! We will come back!
Manager response:
Hi, Rhonda! We're glad you stayed with us and apologize some things didn't meet your expectations. The bathroom and flooring have been brought to the homeowner's attention, and maintenance will be taking care of the blinds. Thank you!

We enjoyed the quiet, and the hot tub! I’m thankful that I’d read other reviews and knew to bring my own salt/pepper/TP.

I wish I’d thought about coffee filters. Waking up and looking forward to a quiet morning on the porch, and finding out that we had to go out right away was disappointing.

Knowing that the driveway looks scarier than it is was nice, too! The mattress in the bedroom has a distinct ridge down the middle, and springs sticking out. It left my partner with significant back pain.

Despite these things, we loved the setting. The decor was cute, the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, and the stove, fridge, shower, dishwasher, furnace, etc., all worked well -no issues!

It was a lovely stay, and we truly enjoyed our time there.
Karen C. Feb 2022
The driveway is very tight and the spa was not hot enough. There was a problem with the stove but a repairman was sent out rapidly to fix same. Now, the cabin was nice and clean although just a little dated.
Allen B. Nov 2021
Perfect for couple
Jessica C. Oct 2021
Perfect for two people and clean! Pretty place!
Jan Z. Oct 2021
The location is lovely and quiet, lots of woods, so that although there are close neighbors, it’s very private. It needs a few basic maintenance tasks done, and perhaps a bit more generosity on the supplies (1 small soap, 1 roll of TP, no salt & pepper), but overall lovely rental.
Manager response:
Jan, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you had an enjoyable stay. We apologize for any maintenance issues you experienced and for any inconveniences caused by the supplies provided. We provide a starter kit of essentials, intended to last 2-3 days, and encourage guests to make a quick trip to the store prior to arrival for the next experience. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon.
Roxanne K. Oct 2021
Didn’t care for it much at all not really any safe spots for a dog to handle business nor is it safe to try and get out of the driveway or get into it a steep drop off. Was hard to see the address and find the place. For the money we spent would rather stayed in a hotel check in time is too late and check out is early 2 hours before we were to check out was getting text messages about checking out. We will not stay at this one again musty smell also looks of mold missing wood in the bathroom walls and could see the mold behind the bathroom door by the shower as well. No sheets on the sleeper sofa also mattress was stained couldn’t use it
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Roxanne. We're sorry to read in your review that you were so unhappy. A new sign has been ordered to help guests locate the property, and housekeeping is being retrained to catch the oversights you experienced. We hope to host you again!
Cheryl L. Sep 2021
Cabin was clean and beautiful. Parking was a little tricky till you got the hang of it. Home was comfortable and close to the main events in town
Becky N. Jul 2021
This 1 bedroom cabin was all we needed. A cute place to rest. It's not very big but had the essentials and was located close to attractions. The drive way was a little difficult to get out of though and the pull out couch was not very comfortable. The bed in the master was very comfy.
Manager response:
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!

It was a perfect cozy clean cabin nestled in the mountains for my family of four.
Dennis D. Jul 2021
tucked away for privacy, yet close enough to enjoy Pigeon Forge activities. Will definitely return.
Ed C. Apr 2021
Very clean. Great location. Would definitely return. Had an issue with the stove and they were VERY prompt in fixing it. Couldn’t be happier overall.
Alyssa B. Mar 2021
This cabin is in a great location to visit the smoky mountain national park but even if that wasn’t your destination, there are ENDLESS things to do in the area! The cabin was very clean (just no sheets on the sofa bed) and the kitchen has everything you’d need to cook just about anything. Hot tub is fantastic morning or night, lots of birds to listen to in the area. We were very thankful to be able to bring our dog as well. The only moderately negative thing I have to say is that the driveway is quite terrifying and you should DEFINITELY have 4wd if you want to make it safely. The road is paved, but the incline is insane and if you pass it the first time like we did, turning around is not an easy feat. Overall, would definitely recommend and stay again!
DARLENE F. Dec 2020
This was a lovely cozy cabin, for a getaway with my spouse and our dog. The wood burning fire place and the hot tub were wonderful to come back to after a day of hiking. Since I am a healthcare worker and very conscious of COVID 19 we chose to make as many meals as possible in the cabin, and the kitchen was well equipped to do so.
Amanda K. Nov 2020
We thought the cabin was cute. It was perfect for our family of four. Used hot tub often. I would recommend this cabin. It was great weather. Loved that we could bring our dogs.
Eric J. Aug 2020
We loved most of what this cabin had to offer.It was close enough to plenty of activities inside and out,plus shopping for the wife and secluded enough to feel plenty of privacy.Only thing we didnt like was in the bedroom there is quite a bit of cobwebs at the peak of ceiling,the bathtub drain stopper did not seal the water in very well and the bed seemed very uncomfortable.i did read previous reviews about the cobwebs and the bed and seen comments that they had taken care of those issues but I'm not sure.I understand that cobwebs can appear very quickly in the woods but I might be very picky about my mattress but my wife is not and even she could not sleep well on this one,so that was the cause of us leaving early Thursday afternoon instead of Friday morning.over all we really enjoyed our stay just not the bed.
Dwight S. Aug 2020
Nice little get away for the weekend. Very clean and neat, (a few too many remotes) and kitchen had plenty of cookware for any meal.
Tiffany C. May 2020
We really enjoyed the hot tub. It stayed hot the whole time! The Cabin itself was very nice. The only complaint we had was the water pressure in the shower was weak.
Scott W. Feb 2020
Beautiful cabin,great people to rent from. Will do it again soon.
Melanie T. Jan 2020
This was our first time staying at this cabin. For 2 people it’s just the right size. A couple of perks with this cabin is the wood burning fireplace and hot tub. Those are 2 things we look for when we book a cabin. The only suggestions we have are: 1. Remove all of the cob webs especially in the bedroom over the bed, cabin needs a good deep clean. 2. Update the mattress, very uncomfortable. Other than that it’s a nice little get away cabin.
Manager response:
Hi, Melanie! We appreciate you sharing your feedback with us. We have taken care of the cobwebs and mentioned the bed and couch to the owner for their consideration. We do hope to see you again!
Gokce w. Jan 2020
I really loved the location and the layout of the house. I got everything i needed. I was in the wilderness but still quite close to civilization. I just wanted to stay in and enjoy.
Doug S. Dec 2019
It was a warm and cozy cabin. Clean and well kept. Hot tub was certainly the highlight. Would certainly love to come back.
Kyle P. Oct 2019
We really enjoyed our time at Bears Heaven. The cabin was very clean and convenient. The only things I would recommend would be a light to stay on outside as it was dark when we arrived and we couldn't see the driveway very well or the sign for the cabin. Also, the bathroom light needs to be brighter.
Scott H. Oct 2019
Loved the cabin, clean, quaint, and quiet. Everything was ready and so easy to check in and out.
kristen M. Oct 2019
This was our second time back to the same cabin we loved it it was perfect for just the two of us very close to town but plenty of privacy looking fw to coming back next year
Stephanie C B. Sep 2019
Cute cabin with all the amenities! 👍😁
Nancy C. Sep 2019
We had a great time, loved every minute we were there. We will definitely be coming back.
Valorie V. Aug 2019
The cabin had everything we needed and more. Comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful stay.
Minda S. Jul 2019
We enjoyed staying at Bears Heaven. Cute cabin, perfect size for two. Plenty of towels for our 4 night stay which we is not always the case at rental cabins. Very clean. Loved the location.
Shawn I. Jul 2019
Cabin was perfect had a great hot tub with netflix in livingroom and bedroom. Bed was comfortable.
Darren B. Jun 2019
We loved it all, from the drive into the hills to the quiet of the location, as we didn't want to stay in the hubbub of town. The cabin was well-appointed with everything we needed, from towels and blankets to coffee filters and a cork screw. Being able to do laundry was wonderful. It was homey and cozy for our little family of three. I loved sitting out on the deck in the mornings and evenings, drinking coffee and listening to the birds. The wi-fi connection was excellent. The only surprises were the drive in, which is narrow, winding, and steep, and the lack of a mountain view, but it was still a lovely place and a short walk up the hill provides breath-taking scenery. Would definitely recommend as a quiet get-away, and would stay again if we ever revisit the area.
Robin M. Jun 2019
cleanliness and a good place to relax
Thomas C. Jun 2019
Cabin was beautiful and peaceful.
Perfect location for the two of us.
Friendly and inviting... would recommend to anyone!
Heather F. Jun 2019
We loved everything about the cabin. It was serene, quiet, and it was clean. The amenities were also lovely.
Cole L. Dec 2018
Loved the home! It was just a little smaller then expected. It was a little worn too. The carpets could use a good cleaning for sure. Would definitely go back.
Heather H. Nov 2018
The house was very nice and close to town.
Beautiful house
Well maintained
-rowdy neighbors
-could not figure out the livingroom TV (remote batteries were gone)
-no coffee filters (we left our spares for the next group)
The cons were very minor disappointments but overal the cabin was gorgeous in a very nice location.
Ashley R. Nov 2018
Very relaxing! we took our two boys (ages 5&8) and they loved their "bear cabin". Everything that we needed was there and we really enjoyed the view from the porch. Thank you!
Patricia R. Oct 2018
