Bear Hugs is exactly we we're looking for in a cabin. View was top priority and didn't disappoint. We didn't want to feel like we were in some palatial mansion. We wanted the simple rustic feel of a single room cabin and I think it delivered. Only downsides were the cleanliness and appliances. Now it wasn't filthy or anything, just dusty in areas and basically like it doesn't get lived in everyday so by no means was it a turn off. The appliances serve their purpose, just not the best. Refrigerator doesn't stay the coldest and drawer under oven seems to be broken. All in all we loved it and would definitely stay again.

My husband booked this cabin for 2 nights for our 1 year wedding anniversary. From the pictures it looked very nice and our plan was to mainly stay in most of the time. It's nice and secluded in the mountains which is what we wanted. When we arrived I started to unpack our food in the kitchen. Unfortunately it was one of the dirtiest cabins we've stayed in. The plates were greasy, silveware had food stuck on them and there was cob webs on the container holding the spatulas and large spoons that was sitting on the counter. The only sponges that were available for me to clean everything before we used it were all old, dried up and already used. The "clean" dish towles smelled like mildew. The large bath tub upstairs had white residue all over it. The cover for the hot tub is falling apart. The couch is also so worn that it is peeling. You can tell this cabin is not well kept.

“Great cabin”

We enjoyed our visit to the Smoky Mountains. We rented this cabin because it was just one bedroom and from just one review (at time of booking). It is clean, quaint, wonderfully decorated and a beautiful mountain view. Every thing we needed was there for us!

“Most relaxing vacation ever!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We rented this cabin for a getaway to celebrate our 35 th anniversery. From the moment we pulled up the driveway to the cabin we were in relax mode. The cabin is cozy and romantic. The view from the back deck will leave you in awe. I wish I could attach some of the pictures we took. We will be back!!

Great place! Clean, everything you need is in the cabin. View off the deck is second to none. Were came to ride the Harley and it is truly the best riding we have done to this point. The whole area is breath taking! Backing the Harley trailer to the cabin was a challenge. You must have a 4 wheel drive truck to do it. We made it work and had a great time. A 35th wedding anniversary we'll never forget! Thanks Bear Hugs.
