    Very quiet, secluded cabin. A perfect spot for a peaceful getaway.
  • - 8/25/2022

    Good lodging, very secluded and private. Cabin met all expectations
  • - 8/3/2022

    The cabin was awesome! You guys make it seem like home with everything you need for a perfect getaway. So peaceful!! We will back :)
  • - 7/1/2022

    The cabin was wonderful. Everything we needed. Enough towels was a plus. We've stayed at other VRBO homes and what they say is not what you get. This was definitely everything it said plus. The location in the woods next to a mountain was perfect. It was far enough off the main road that you pretty much did not hear traffic. The road the cabin is on is private so not much traffic at all. We loved the relaxed feel of it all. The hot tub was a bonus. We liked that it was close enough to everything but not in the middle of it all. Loved it! Definitely would recommend. Would definitely stay there again.
  • - 6/26/2022

    I have stayed with smoky cabins many times. This time was no different. We loved our cabin everything was fresh and clean. We had no problems. We will be back again soon!
  • - 5/14/2022

    The cabin was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. We loved the private location. Bear’s Den is my favorite cabin and we will definitely be coming back! We’ve been booking with Smoky Cabins for several years and highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a cabin to rent!
  • - 4/18/2022

    Beautiful secluded cabin in the mountains! This was by far one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. It was absolutely pristine.
  • - 4/13/2022

    A great cabin with great interior decorations. Very comfortable and was a welcome “temporary home” to come back to in the evening!
  • - 3/21/2022

    Bear’s Den ranks as one of my favorite cabins Smoky Cabins offers! It’s in a great location and is the perfect size for a couple to get away. The homey touches throughout also are beautiful! Remember to bring your laundry detergent since there is a washer & dryer in the cabin. Also, it’s good to know there is absolutely no reception in this cabin location, so it’s perfect for an electronic free escape! This cabin received a four instead of five as the bed and pillows are below par for a good night’s sleep. I’ve informed management though and I’m sure they’re working toward a resolution!
    Management Response: New pillows ordered and bed is being checked as we spoke for repair. There should hav been laundry detergent at the cabin so we will replace that as well. Thanks for the heads up!!
  • - 3/12/2022

    This cabin was very nice. We enjoyed our stay for our 50th anniversary and my birthday. It is located in a very quiet and semi-private area. It is a small cabin but plenty of room for 2 people. The back deck with hot tub, charcoal grill and fire pit was wonderful. Will definitely use Smoky Cabins again.

  • - 2/14/2022

  • - 1/9/2022

    Cozy cabin. We had a great time.
  • - 12/1/2021

    Great cabin. Perfect spot - secluded but still close enough to town and two entrances to the Smoky Mountains. Owner was very responsive.
  • - 11/9/2021

    Another awesome time at a very cool cabin
  • - 10/30/2021

    Great peaceful cabin! Our new favorite. Definitely will book this cabin again.
  • - 10/18/2021

    Such a cute little cabin. Was very clean when we arrived. We enjoyed our stay very much and will do so again next time we travel to the area
  • - 10/14/2021

    We enjoyed our stay very much. We hope to stay here again.
  • - 10/3/2021

    Very clean and a quiet location. Great place to relax.
  • - 9/11/2021

    Everything was clean and cozy
  • - 9/5/2021

    We really enjoyed the Bears Den cabin. It is conveniently located between Pigeon Forge and Townsend center. Trailhead steak and trout in Townsend is an excellent place to eat and there are nice shops near by. We found those due to the location of the cabin that we may not have stumbled on. The cabin is private and relaxing. Very clean and nicely decorated. The deck and hot tub is where we spent most evenings. We cooked out several evenings using the grill provided. The staff is very courteous and helpful! We couldn’t have asked for more. We had rented another cabin that was cancelled on us less than a month before our trip and was paid in full as that owner supposedly sold. We were frantic to find another and found this one and glad we did! We will be back!!
  • - 7/25/2021

    Bear’s Den was a dream! We absolutely loved our stay and would definitely come back. It was in a very relaxing setting and had everything we needed for our stay!
  • - 7/8/2021

    We had a fantastic time in Bear's Den! The cabin was very spacious and super clean. The linens and towels were great! Had a lot of kitchen utensils and anything else you could need. We enjoyed it tremendously !!
  • - 6/28/2021

    Very clean. Great amenties, kitchen has basically everything you need to have a home cooked meal. Bathroom is great, made me feel very luxurious. Cabin is very cozy & homey. Peaceful surroundings. Check in & out process is was made extremely simple. Cabin was easy to find. Definetley would come back for another stay.

    As I age, I'm learning to "take what I like, and leave the rest", and since no one likes complaints, I'll only share perhaps observations to better future stays. THIS cabin, Bears den, was quaint, and charming, and I'm not easily charmed. The town of Townsend is easy to navigate, and has many great stopping places, and points. Bears Den Cabin had MOST everything folks would need, and settling in for the weekend was easy. The bedroom had enough space for personal items, and the bed was just right, however I did feel like the center was a bit too dipped in, leaving you feeling on one side or the other like you can roll to the center of the dip. LoL. Hot tub was relaxing, and the views to the West, and Easterly directions, were serene. Lot's of Lightning bugs. Shower pressure was nice. No flat hair here! Kitchen is open, and the fireplace rocked. I do however wish there was an outside space for a "campfire", but understand that possibly due to the close area of the nearby foot-hills, it's a fire danger. Many folks are irresponsible, and we don't want anyone burning down our Beautiful Smokey's. Parking is easy. Lots of wildlife, in the mountains to observe. Don't be a knucklehead and try to pet em though, as you're likely to lose an arm, or hand. At the cabin there are plenty of singing songbirds to chill to as you soak in the hot-tub. That about sums it up.
  • - 6/18/2021

    Beautiful cabin! Loved the privacy! The owners are so helpful.
  • - 6/4/2021

    The cabin was very clean & cozy. The perfect size for 2 people with all the amenities needed for a relaxing get away. A great location that is private but still close to many of the great attractions of the Smokey Mountains.
  • - 5/29/2021

    Really enjoyed the cabin. Everything was as advertised. Cabin was clean and well maintained. Location is quiet and plenty of space to other cabins in the lane so it's very private. Close to Townsend but not too close. Very handy to Wears Valley gsmp entrance.
  • - 5/17/2021

    What a great little quiet place to hang your hat for a week. First off, the house keeping ladies do a darn good job. We've rented places that needed TLC as soon as we walked in...not this cabin. Location is just 3 miles or so to Townsend, convenient enough. We cook in mostly and this place had enough tools for the job I do. WiFi was good, as was the tub. No cell coverage but that's normal for us AT@T users..The only thing missing guessed it, a view. But it was sooo quiet we didn't care. It's a keeper do again for us..
  • - 5/15/2021

    Cute little cabin on the mountain side. Easy to get to and conveniently located close to pigeon forge, Gatlinburg, and Townsend. Would definitely visit again.
  • - 5/5/2021

    Great company our family has used smokycabins since I can remember. They have great cabins and are very customer service oriented. We are looking to book our next trip.
  • - 4/16/2021

    We loved our vacation at Bear’s Den! The cabin was very clean and the location and privacy was perfect! We will definitely be back soon!!
  • - 3/19/2021

    Very beautiful cabin
  • - 3/9/2021

    We had an amazing time in the Bear's Den. It was very clean and cleaning supplies were left behind for us to use throughout our stay. The location was great, nice and peaceful and only about a 20 minute drive to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Soaking in the hot in the middle of the woods was just what we needed. Thank you for making my boyfriends birthday weekend special!
  • - 2/16/2021

    This was a cute and cozy cabin. My husband and I had a very nice time. Would love to come again sometime.
  • - 2/7/2021

    A very clean cabin. It’s very cozy. Had plenty of supplies as well as plenty of wood for the fire place. Easy to find and very peaceful.
  • - 1/2/2021

    The cabin is very comfortable and decor is not overdone. We had everything we needed to cook our meals. When entering the cabin it smelled fresh and clean. The king size bed was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of firewood. The hot tub was clean. I had to call to ask a few questions and the person was very helpful.
  • - 11/19/2020

    We loved this place!! The only thing that could’ve been better is 2 recliners so we could relax a little more comfortable instead of 1 recliner & a small couch. We aren’t complaining though!
  • - 11/14/2020

    Everything was absolutely perfect about this cozy little cabin! We have stayed with smoky cabins the past 3 years and we will continue to book through them every year! If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place to stay away from all the hustle and bustle but still only a few minutes away, this is the perfect place!
  • - 10/19/2020

    Awesome rental co to deal with, super awesome place to stay, pretty secluded, perfect for the two of us. (helpful hint): It was cool to be able to access the cabin easily from the park thru wears cove as well as the townsend way.
  • - 9/25/2020

    Very clean, private.
  • - 9/11/2020

    Quiet, peaceful, private and convenient location, small but excellent for a couple. Would stay again.

    Great quiet cabin close to Townsend, Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg but away from the noise!
  • - 7/28/2020

    Very nice place, close to great trails, yet feels remote. Communication and instructions were awesome.
  • - 6/25/2020

    GREAT cabin, friendly staff & awesome shopping & dining options! Most relaxing vacation ever!
  • - 6/4/2020

    We love this cabin! The location is wonderful and secluded. It was very clean. We’ve been booking with Smoky Cabins for a few years and will continue to do so for all of our future trips. We had an awesome week! We already have a return trip planned for later this year!
  • - 5/25/2020

  • - 12/30/2019

    This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The Bears Den was comfortable and met all of our needs. We are checking with our family about getting a larger cabin for all of us.
  • - 12/21/2019

    We really enjoyed our 3 week stay in the Bear's Cabin! It was cozy, relaxing and very quiet. We utilized the washer/dryer and the full kitchen while we were there and we're grateful we had those options! We would stay there again in a heart beat!
  • - 12/1/2019

    The cabin was very cute and cozy. Very impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin.
  • - 11/17/2019

    Our cabin the “Bears Den” was the perfect little cabin for a couple to get away for a weekend. Positioned close to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge made for a nice couple of day trips for both shopping in Pigeon Forge and enjoying Anakeesta in Gatlinburg. Our cabin had all the amenities you could want including a full kitchen, fireplace with wood supplied, king size bed with a full bathroom along with a jacuzzi on the back porch, outside seating and a charcoal grill. We’re looking forward to another stay very soon.
  • - 11/4/2019

  • - 6/18/2019

    We loved the quaint, cozy cabin. It was perfect for our 22nd Anniversary. It was clean and decorated so cute. It’s in a gated area, which was nice. We loved getting in the hot tub, listening to nature. The location was great! We even spotted a bear nestled in the woods. We’re so glad we chose this cabin.
  • - 5/18/2019

    We absolutely loved our stay in this cabin! It was secluded and quiet and the location was great! We will definitely be staying here again!!
  • - 5/12/2019

    The cabin provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. Listen for the whip-poor-will every night and early morning! There was great WiFi but absolutely no cell service at the cabin although we have a Canadian provider so that could have been the issue. Overall a good stay and the hot tub was a nice treat.
  • - 4/22/2019

    Was great clean cabin loved it.
  • - 4/7/2019

    Everything was GREAT!! Cabin was very comfortable, loved the location

  • - 11/17/2018

    Loved it!! Everything was great! Had a great time!!
  • - 11/17/2018

    Perfect cabin for 2. Nice quiet setting. Really enjoyed ourselves and will be back!!!
  • - 11/4/2018

    We had a very nice time there. We loved the seclusion, but our cell service was spotty. We had it in some parts of the cabin, but not in others. There isn’t a dusk to dawn light, so you might want to bring a nightlight if you don’t like the dark.
  • - 10/21/2018

    Great location. Cabin was clean and comfortable.
  • - 10/1/2018

    The cabin was real nice and the cleaning crew did an excellent job preparing for my arrival.I would definitely stay again.
  • - 9/16/2018

    Beautiful cabin VERY clean and had everything we needed. Tucked away just the way we wanted it. We will definitely be back.
  • - 8/19/2018

    Cabin was super cute had all the amenities a couple would need and was convenient to all areas
  • - 8/16/2018

    We love Bear's Dean it was very clean and the bed was so comfortable it was so nice to get in a good bed after a long day in the Mountains. We had everything we needed to cook a meal or BBQ outside. We also had a bear that came by daily. He would just walk down the road and go up in the woods. I think it was like you don't bother me and I want bother you. Over all this is the best cabin we have ever stayed in over the last 30 years we have been coming to the Smokey Mountains and the location is perfect. Thank You so much we will be back. David and Charlotte
  • - 8/12/2018

    Very nice cabin. No noise but nature we enjoyed ourselves.
  • - 7/18/2018

    had a great time at the cabin. only one glitch that was addressed reasonably quick, other than that very comfortable cabin . am seriously considering a return stay at the same place.
  • - 6/14/2018

    The Bear's Den was exactly as described and we loved it. After one small email requesting that the shower head be fixed, it was awesome that it was fixed upon our return back to the cabin later that day. Would definitely rent from you again. Thank you.
  • - 5/30/2018

    Booking was easy and when we asked questions the response time was quick.
  • - 4/1/2018

    It was our honeymoon and it was the best! This Cabin had just enough space for me and the husband. Quite area too!! We will definitely be coming back!
  • - 3/16/2018

    Perfect! Clean cabin decorated with a rustic feel with bears all over, very cozy. Perfect for privacy in the hot tub. Close enough to grocery store, restaurants and shopping. The bed, oh my the bed is perfect! Best sleep ever!!! This cabin lived up to all of my wishes. We didn't want to leave. We hope to return.
