“Clean & spacious cabins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2008

My family just returned from our spring break vacation at Big Bear. We were pleasantly surprised to find how large, bright, and clean the cabin/condo was. There were 3 floors. My husband and I slept in the master loft which overlooked the living room, below. The second floor had an outdoor hot tub which was very clean, a modern kitchen and a living area with a gas fireplace which my boys, 13 and 10 loved! The boys slept downstairs which was like an apartment, with another fireplace, an efficiency kitchen, and a jacuzzi bathtub. The soundproofing was superb!

On the downside: we had a wasp problem in our cabin. We contacted the office who promptly sent a workperson while we were out. They could not find the wasps but left us spray. We used the spray later that night and let the office know that there was still a problem. I feel that an exterminator should have been summoned ASAP. What if somebody got stung? We killed 5 wasps in all and were unable to locate the nest. The office was again made aware and stated that they would have to do something about it. Not sure what that was.

Stayed March 2008

We have stayed here several times this year. They are very clean cabins. Everything is comfortable. You are 2 minutes from everything in Pigeon Forge. Anytime we have a problem, they fix it immediately. We will stay here again.

We stayed in one our their dens (kinda like a little appartment below their cabin rental), and it was BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN! All the amentities and quiet! You have to see it to believe it! Even better, they gave us an even better deal than what the internet price was! The view from our deck was wonderful! The staff was so nice! Can't wait to go back with the kids and rent the upstairs cabins!

I just returned from a weekend (11-7 to 11-9) at the Big Bear Resort. I rented one of the lodge dens, since it was just for two people. There was a living room/kitchen together, a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, and a bedroom. It was like an apartment in the bottom of a log cabin. The furnishings were beautiful, the decor rustic, and the gas fireplace marvelous! This is the best lodging experience I have every had anywhere! I can't wait to go back and would recommend this to everyone!!! It is very romantic!

In June of 2002 my family and my sister's family visited Big Bear, It was amazing. The cabin was decorated with class, it was great. There were 7 of us all together and the way it is set up we were all able to stay in one cabin, with access to a living area and kitchen we shared. I would definately reccommend this to everyone.
