Common Concerns:
*Road Conditions: Some of our cabins are on steep, narrow, curvy, mountain roads. If you are concerned about road conditions to get to a cabin, please feel free to ask us! None of our cabins require a 4 wheel drive under normal weather conditions but some do in inclement weather.
*TV & WiFi: We do have TV's and WiFi in most all of our cabins. There are times when heavy cloud cover, weather systems, mountains, or trees will cause problems with the signals. We always want our guests to have the comforts they want on vacation, but there are times we cannot control this problem.
*Pests & Wildlife: Here in the Smoky Mountains, we have lots of native bugs and wildlife. All of our cabins are treated for pests, but there are times you will find bugs or even have trouble with bugs. Please let us know if they are causing trouble, we will handle it as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please never feed, taunt or approach any wildlife. This is their home and we are the visitors.

  • - 10/26/2021

    This cabin was exactly what we wanted! Set off in the woods and away from everything. There were plenty of kitchen supplies included. The manager/owner was very responsive if we needed to call for anything.

    The cabin was very nice, clean and spacious. Well supplied with blankets, pillows, towels and wash clothes. The only issue I had was ants and centipedes. It is by a busy road. Didn’t bother me with the traffic passing.

    It was so nice and peaceful and felt like home
  • - 5/27/2021

    We enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and seemed well kept. Would of liked to have been a little further off the road, but still enjoyed our time away.

    Over all a good experience. Surprisingly quiet for it proximity to highway. Slept very well in spite of memory foam mattresses. Furniture is sparse and worn. I guess for money it was pretty good. Next trip I'll spend more money.
  • - 5/3/2021

    Overall the cabin was nice. Wasn’t a fan of the memory foam mattress. There wasn’t many tv channels. The front door needs better locking system so that you feel more secure while staying inside. Need more lighting in the back porch area at night.
    Management Response: Thank you for staying with us at Black Bears Den. We appreciate your business and feedback. The cabin has an electronic keypad on the front door which automatically locks when you close the door. Can't get much more secure than that.

    Great location for folks like me and my wife who do not like traveling up to the top of the mountain. Loved being able to bring our baby Rosie with us.

    4 star It's a very nice 2 bedroom cabin, which fit our needs for this trip, and we felt really lucky to find one this nice that accepted dogs. Great size, comfortable couches and beds, nice size ell equipped kitchen for cooking. Some cabins we have stayed in have incredibly small showers so this full size one was very nice. The washer and dryer was an extra bonus.

    We enjoyed our stay very much.
  • - 10/20/2019

    We liked the cabin; it was very nice. Comfortable living and sleeping areas; clean bathroom. Great local soap! I have a suggestion: When it is going to get below 45-50 degrees at night, perhaps, provide an extra blanket?
    Management Response: Thank you so much for staying with us at Black Bears Den! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay!! The cabin does has central heat so there should never be a time that our guests are cold, however, we will consider adding an extra blanket.
