My grandson and I stayed at Dancing Bear last weekend. Our cabin was well appointed & comfortable. The fridge was stocked with granola, yogurt, juice & fruit- this was great for our early morning trip to nearby Cades Cove. We greatly enjoyed the hot tub on the deck after many hours in the car. The cafe had great food. I...

I enjoyed my stay, but expected more based on the way Dancing Bear advertises itself. We were in a Deluxe Cabin. The bed was very comfortable, the cabin was clean and stocked with everything we need, but I would not describe my experience as luxurious. It was a perfectly comfortable and cozy cabin, but nothing more than that.

My daughter held her wedding here. From the beautiful setting to the accommodating staff it was a perfect weekend! We are so impressed with how easy the planning was and the outcome of the wedding as a whole. Jaden, Chrissy and Colleen really were magnificent in every way.

A cross between a cabin and a luxury hotel. Great for those who want the Smokeies experience without breaking a fingernail. Plenty of firewood was provided. Great to be able to walk to the resteraunt just a few steps away. A special wekend break.

My husband and I stayed in Rabbit Creek Cabin. Our accommodations were excellent! The food was fabulous! The people were friendly and helpful. This was a great trip! The porch rockets and hot tub were great for relaxing before retiring for bed! The cabin was clean and there were lots of towels!

My husband and I spent a couple nights in the two bedroom cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. The beds were super comfortable. The cabin was very very clean. I would recommend this as a lazy getaway to read and recharge your soul;)

This is our new weekend getaway. Beautiful place with wonderful food! Friendly helpful staff. The fireplaces both inside our room and outside the bistros were so nice. We enjoyed that so much. We definitely be back!

Without a doubt the nicest place to stay and eat dinner. Accommodations were the perfect from the hot tub on the back deck to the fire place. We stayed in the Doe Knob cabin....king size bed comfortable as well as the two over stiffed leather chairs in front of the fire place. Just wonderful. We will return.

After 2 nights on the trails in GSMNP, our stay at Dancing Bear Lodge was wonderful. We had the Rainbow Falls cabin and could not have asked for more. They provide a wonderful breakfast in the cabin including yogurt, house-made granola (delicious), fruit, coffee and orange juice. The bathrooms are quite large and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. We also...
