The wood burning fireplace was perfect......lots of firewood and fire starter. The jacuzzi on the back porch was perfect. We used it each morning and each evening. The bed was sooooo comfortable......great... More

The cozy cabin is one big room, but not crowded. Couch, TV, full kitchen,fast Wi-FI, bed, hot tub all in one big room - but not crowded. Couch: not a... More

Not too may word can describe these cabin. They are gorgeous, very well kept, and luxurious. I throughly enjoyed every aspect of my stay; from the beautiful room, wilderness, feather bed, jacuzzi, great shower/bath, and even the friendly staff at the apple valley country store, I did not want leave. We will definitely be back to stay here, maybe even... More

I have read ALL of the reviews as I attempt to do when making travel arrangements and relying a great deal on TripAdvisor. This is not about the accomodations, which I'm sure live up to reviews, but to their cancellation policy. My husband had a business trip to Nashville so we decided to extend our stay and booked lodging at... More

Doe Knob- This cabin was made for a romantic getaway. If you are looking for great views high onto a mountain, look elsewhere. These cabins are conveniently nestled in the woods just off the main road. A real wood fireplace and a Jacuzzi on the porch made a perfect romantic weekend.

OK, almost heaven, as John Denver would say about the mountains. We stayed one night at one of the cabins (Meigs Trail?) and could have stayed for weeks...if we didn't have to work for a living. The cabin is well done with a stacked stone fireplace and plenty of amenities for a rustic setting (hot tub, continental breakfast stored in... More

Had only a one night stay at Dancing Bear but we were so impressed with the accommodations and service that we wished we could have extended for many more! There was a mixup with our booking site reservations and Dancing Bear did not know we were coming. However, Mark provided us and our two granddaughters a small cabin to stay... More

Was looking for a cabin in the woods, private and with a hot tub. Chose Dancing Bear on recommendation. The goods: Very attentive, accommodating, and pleasant staff. They went the extra mile and decorated our cabin for our daughters birthday complete with a cake and bottle of sparkling wine. Housekeeping was very friendly and attentive as well. Cabin was clean.... More

Love the location of the cabins. They are conveniently located near local activities, but private enough to rest & relax. Great for a romantic get away or a weekend of activities in the mountains. Can't wait to go back!

Dancing bear lodge is a special gem in the smoky Mountains! Cozy, spacious cabins. We kept a Fire going all weekend in our cabin. Lots of firewood available. Cooked great meals and had progressive gatherings at friends cabins. Could walk all over property with ease. Loved the outdoor hot tubs on your back porch.overlooking a valley.
