  • - 11/1/2022

    Everything good - nothing to complain about everything to complement.
  • - 9/30/2022

    Wonderful, comfortable cabin. Very well stocked, extremely clean and beautiful views. Couldn't want for anything more, except maybe one more comfortable chair. There were 4 of us and 3 on the couch was a slight squeeze.
  • - 9/27/2022

    The cabin was clean & spacious, a beautiful home. The neighborhood is quite & peaceful. We hope to return again in the future & maybe for a longer stay next time.
  • - 9/6/2022

    Clean and quiet! Kitchen was well stocked. Sun room was a perfect place for reading and watching golfers. We hope to return in the future.
  • - 4/28/2022

    This is our absolute favorite cabin. This is our third time here. We have stayed in many of the Smoky Cabins and stay here when we don’t bring our dog. If it were pet friendly, we would stay everytime. There are 3 porches and my favorite is the one attached to the living room. The top one is great also. We have no complaints and thankful for the management and all they do.
  • - 3/6/2022

    Clean, well appointed ( a full spice rack) and properly maintained. Wish there was more space or trees between cabin. It was a short visit, so the kitchen went unused. Maybe next visit.

    Great location. The view of golf course and mountains was beautiful. Very clean and comfortable.
  • - 9/20/2021

    Very clean and quiet cabin. If you're looking for something away from the hustle and bustle but with gorgeous mountain views and scenic drives then this is your cabin. We would definitely stay here again.
  • - 9/11/2021

    We truly enjoyed your cabin and all you provided. It was clean and cute inside and out. As two women traveling together, we felt safe.
  • - 8/18/2021

    Very nice cabin. “Homey” and clean. Closer to Cades Cove than staying in the Gatlinburg area, which is nice.
  • - 6/17/2021

    Love the location, 2nd time renting this cabin.
  • - 6/12/2021

    Wonderful stay!
  • - 5/17/2021

    This cabin is absolutely beautiful. Rates up as one of my favorites. I have stayed at 7 of them an this is my 2nd favorite. They are all so beautiful it hard to choose.
  • - 5/2/2021

    This is our favorite cabin to reserve. I wish it were pet friendly because we like to bring our dog. I love all three porches and watching the golfers. The kitchen has everything you need! The main shower is huge... we love it. I like that it isn’t a steep climb to get to the cabin. We will definitely reserve it again!
  • - 4/26/2021

    Bear Haven is our preferred choice when we come to the Smoky Mountains. It is our 2nd stay and we will surely be back to stay again. We enjoy the comforts that it offers after long hikes in the mountains as well as being on "The Peaceful" side.
  • - 4/11/2021

    Overall nice
  • - 3/30/2021

    The cabin and location was superb.
  • - 3/13/2021

    This cabin was everything that we needed. It was cozy and clean and the location is superb. We had a relaxing, quiet visit and would come back anytime.
  • - 3/11/2021

    This is the third time we have booked with Smokey Cabins and as always had a great experience. Bear Haven was delightful, perfect for our needs. Loved sitting in the sun room and watching the sunsets.
  • - 3/7/2021

    We had so much fun here. January was a rough time for our family, making this getaway time all the more meaningful. Our 3 young children really love staying in the mountains so I was a little concerned about staying on a golf course but Bear Haven did not disappoint. We’d definitely make a return trip in the future. Thanks so very much.
  • - 2/1/2021

    This is the second time to rent this lovely cozy cabin! Can’t wait to come back again!
  • - 1/2/2021

    Loved the Cabin! The view is spectacular and we spent our mornings in the sun room enjoying coffee.
  • - 11/22/2020

    Stayed many times. Always enjoy the cabin and the peaceful location. We have noticed all the positive changes and upgrades.

  • - 9/28/2020

    Lovely setting and great cabin. Look forward to coming back again.
  • - 9/20/2020

    My sister and I stayed at Bear Haven last year, too, and liked it so much we had to come back. We were not disappointed. Lovely, peaceful and very clean cabin. Love the view of the mountains from any of the three back porches. We hope to be back next year.
  • - 9/1/2020

    We greatly enjoyed our visit! The seclusion and security were both appreciated. Having rented over twelve cabins in The Smokies, this property rated very high with us. First of all, Bear Haven is located near Townsend, which provides the peace, beauty and lower crowds we desire. Updated decor, nice bathrooms, outdoor space usable even in rain, a beautiful view and very clean interior were all noted and welcomed by our party.
  • - 8/22/2020

    Wonderful home, very nice. Thank you for letting us enjoy your cabin. We will be returning in the spring.
  • - 7/22/2020

    Loved the cabin.
  • - 7/12/2020

    Nice cabin. Great location. We didn't care too much for the change in the TV provider. Missed the tourism channel. Smoky Cabins are the best in the area.
  • - 7/6/2020

    This was our third time staying at bear haven we love the cabin and the location. Always a pleasant transaction with Smoky cabins.
  • - 6/27/2020

  • - 11/17/2019

    This place is amazing!!! Absolutely gorgeous cabin and beautifully decorated. We were super pleased with everything. Very well stocked and spotless cleaned. We could not have ask for a better place!
  • - 11/9/2019

    Beautiful cabin! All the comforts of home. We enjoyed the stay and will be back next year at this time!
  • - 10/27/2019

    Very good location and the cabin was in great condition. Good layout for our family and very easy to get back to town.
  • - 10/21/2019

    We dearly loved the cabin and would happily stay here again. It was perfect for a couple and a single. Each person had plenty of room and privacy.
  • - 9/29/2019

    This is the 4th cabin that we've rented from Smoky Cabins and it was wonderful! All have been good, but this one is the best. We usually have to get a pet friendly one but didn't this time. It is very easy to get to...nothing steep. It is beautifully designed and so clean. Everything was found working and we just loved it. I wish it was pet friendly, but we will definitely rent again.
  • - 8/20/2019

    Love this cabin, the golfers are so funny to watch, and the sunroom, oh my.. Even was blessed with a doe and her two fawns in the yard this time.
  • - 8/6/2019

    Absolutely perfect cabin for me and my 3 kids .... everything was wonderful from the setup in the cabin to the view from the upper deck!
  • - 6/16/2019

    I have stayed in cabins in the Laurel Valley area eight times, and this is my favorite cabin. It was cozy, clean, and comfortable. I loved the view of the mountains from the back porch. It was peaceful and quiet. The bedrooms were large and beds very comfortable. I absolutely loved it, and so did my sister. I'm going to bring my husband for a few days in the future.
  • - 4/26/2019

    Bear Haven is immaculate, comfortable and well maintained. I have stayed a few times and always find it to be perfect.
  • - 4/17/2019

    A lovely cabin with great views of the mountains. Wildflowers were abundant as well for those who enjoy nature. We stayed for 10 days and were very comfortable here and look forward to choosing Bear Haven for our next stay as well.
  • - 3/18/2019

    Absolutely beautiful cabin and views. Lots of wildlife - wish we could have seen a bear, but the beauty of the property made up for that. Highly recommend!!
  • - 3/13/2019

    Cabin was great although couldn't figure out how to turn on the fireplace on our cold and rainy day. Cable in the bedrooms and dish towels in kitchen would be great. Overall a wonderful stay!!
  • - 12/27/2018

    This was the perfect cabin for our first Smoky Mountain Christmas. We spent more time just hanging out and playing games at the cabin. Provided by Smoky Cabins. We have stayed with them several times over the years and we will in the future as well. We are talking about making this a tradition every year. Thank you so much for making our holiday a special one and very memorable. The Marine Family
  • - 11/18/2018

    One of the nicest cabins and locations we have experienced with our many stays in the Smokies. We will probably stay again. The staff of Smoky Cabins was the best we have ever dealt with. Just wish we could have stayed longer.
  • - 11/13/2018

    We hosted a wedding in the area, this resort was suggested by our coordinator. All of the cabins that our family rented were clean and beautiful. However, Bear Haven stood out among the rest. It was the most beautiful and relaxing of the cabins. The view was spectacular! It was right off the golf course which gave the kids room to play. The driveway was easily accessible and not located on a cliff. It also was the last cabin on the road which gave more privacy. Out of the 8 cabins we rented, Bear Haven is the one I would return to!
  • - 10/24/2018

    The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The views from the enclosed sunroom and open deck are great. The beds were more comfortable than some other cabins and condos I have stayed in. I hope to book with Smoky Cabins again in the future.
  • - 10/3/2018

    Quiet, well appointed, clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.
  • - 8/20/2018

    It was a beautiful cabin with large bedrooms and plenty of room. Loved the decor, location (especially the views) and no noise. Would recommend it to anyone.
  • - 8/17/2018

    Loved the cabin! Fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, had everything we needed. Super clean. It rained quite a bit while we were staying there, so we loved having the option of the enclosed deck. Close to Tuckaleetchee Caverns, so take the time to visit. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay in Townsend, I'd highly recommend Bear Haven!
  • - 7/14/2018

    Wonderful cabin in a great location close to the park. Cabin was excellent, very clean, and great views of the mountains. Highly recommended and we will stay here again. Customer service from Smokey cabins was the best!
  • - 7/8/2018

    Great cabin with a golf course view. Very clean and well stocked. We plan to stay here again.
  • - 7/3/2018

    We had a great time at the "cabin". We couldn't really figure out what most of the light switches did, but that was really minor. Overall, everything was great, clean, well equipped, etc.
  • - 4/22/2018

    We loved Bear Haven! It was clean and modern, and we loved the amenities. The view was wonderful, and the sunroom was our favorite place to eat and to just sit and relax. We had a couple of little visitors in the form of a tiny lizard, and an energetic hummingbird which happened to fly in just as I opened the deck door! :D But all was well. We returned the critters to the great outdoors, and continued to enjoy our stay. We come to Townsend every year to the Smoky Mountain Fiber Festival, and we will certainly stay in Bear Haven again if we have the opportunity. Thanks for a great weekend.
  • - 4/18/2018

    The cabin was great, very clean and nice location.
  • - 2/19/2018

    We found the cabin to be very comfortable. We will definitely be back!!
  • - 1/3/2018

    Cabin was very clean! A little too far from Pigeon Forge for us and not enough to keep the kids occupied inside. If it’s just adults or a honeymoon vacation this cabin is perfect!
  • - 12/3/2017

    We truly enjoyed out weekend in your beautiful cabin. We would highly recommend it to all our family and friends. Manager was extremely helpful and prompt with replies to our questions. We look forward to our next opportunity to return to Bear Haven .
  • - 11/8/2017

    Beautiful cabin! Great location. Very clean and well kept. Surprised that the cabin was stocked so well. Given 4 stars only because parking was an issue and due to the limited amount of TV channels to choose from. Will recommend this cabin to family and friends.
    Management Response: We have updated the channel offerings to include sports channels and ESPN. Thank you for staying with us at Bear Haven.
