Stayed in "Awesome View" 2br condo for 5 nights. My family had a relaxing stay and thought the unit fit nicely with our Smoky Mountain vacation. A couple things to consider...yes, the location is decent but is not in practical walking distance to the Pigeon Forge strip. You will need to hop in your car each time you'd like to... More

Fantastic lodge, with excellent staff. The breakfast is pretty good too. Right next to the mountain for skiing and walks. Check out the free guided walks, we did snow shoeing and loved it. Ask at reception for details.

I have been so busy that I keep forgetting to write me review. However, I found myself daydreaming of another vacation to Pigeon Forge, so I thought why not reveiw it. Mike is such a lovely person. He was so polite. He chatted with us about the area and was just a very genuine person. The cabin felt like home... More

We stayed in Cabin 326. It is very nice. My understanding is that it is not one of the newer cabins but at any rate it was very nice. Very impressed with the cookware in the cabin. When we stay in the cabins, we eat in quite often. A lot of the cabins we have stayed in before did not... More

I went there for New Years Eve with 2 other people, they said the room was redone over, it was the worst place I have ever stayed in. They also had no water, so we could not use the bathroom, our stay was for 3 days and checked out next morning. They refused to refund any money to us and... More

We stayed at the Mountain Vista Getaways (also called the big bear lodge and resort). I was hesitant at first because I was not sure what we were booking. It was fabulous. We had a two bedroom cabin for 4 adults and two children. The cabin was roomy and very well decorated. Also, the cabin was in great condition and... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in cabin 450. The cabin has 2 bedrooms( king and queen ) and the beds and bedding are divine.There is a queen sleeper sofa in the great room. The second "bedroom" is located in the loft so if privacy is an issue you might want to put kids here. 2 full bathrooms, one with... More
