Cabin was very clean and homey. Had a great time. Got to see a couple of Bears our first day there. Would stay again.

“Paradise high above Gatlinburg”
Reviewed May 14, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We booked Honey Bear Ridge for our son’s college graduation. This cabin proved perfect for our family—the three levels of living space were the perfect separation yet kept us close as well! Lynn and her family were beyond gracious and helpful before, during, and after our stay! Views from third story deck provided amazing sunrises each morning!! We did not get to see the “resident” nlack bear but did spy a mom with three cubs on trail just behind cabin! Awesome place to stay! You will not be disappointed!!!

“All that it was said to be”
Reviewed May 12, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

This "cabin" (Davy Crockett never had it so good) perches on the mountain side and is private in spite of the numerous other cabins nearby. Foliage and differences in elevation give that privacy.
The cabin is outfitted with everything necessary for a comfortable stay and offers a variety of entertainment. The pool table, foosball table and the hot tub were all well used during our three night stay.
Steep, tho well maintained, mountain roads allow access to Gatlinburg in less than 15 minutes for even the most timid drivers. Gatlinburg has become the consumate tourist town and offers something for everyone.
Lynn H, the owner, was very helpful and pleasant during the entire leadup and stay.
All in all, well worth the money as a good time was had by all!

“Awesome Mountain Cabin”
Reviewed March 24, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We had a fantastic time staying at Honey Bear Ridge! The cabin truly lived up to our expectations and more! It was perfect for myself, husband, mother-in-law, and 3 children ages 9-12. We loved that there were 3 bedrooms & 3 baths. We had fun in the game room playing pool and fuse ball, and enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a being out and about all day. The cabin was in great condition and beautifully decorated. Plenty of conveniences of home. Lynn the owner was so sweet and helpful, and always available when we had needs or questions. The location was perfect - super close to the action in Gatlinburg, as well as convenient to Smokey Mountain National Park. Views and sunrises from the cabin were breathtaking as well! (See pic). We will definitely be back and will absolutely stay at Honey Bear Ridge again! Thanks Lynn & Chris!

“Perfect family get away”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We rented Honey Bear Lodge for our children's fall break. We met both sets of grandparents and all stayed together. It was perfect! Each family had a private bed room and bathroom. The cabin was immaculate. The kitchen had all the cooking essentials needed for a long weekend. Sheets and towels were luxurious. We had a lot of fun family fellowship on the balcony and in the game room but plenty of privacy too. It is so close to the park. The views are amazing. We left relaxed, refreshed and ready to jump back into our busy schedules.

The owners were delightful to work with and easily accessible. We can't wait to go back.

“Beautiful mountain cabin!”

person found this review helpful

Pictures and description exactly as stated. Very beautiful cabin and full of amenities. We were able to experience the beauty of the mountains and its bears first-hand. Lynn was always just a text away for any questions we had and was an excellent resource for us. I highly recommend staying here! Please be advised though: this is a mountain cabin and the road to the cabin is narrow and the drive (and drive way leading to the cabin) is very steep.

Heather ,

Thanks so much for the great review! I'm so glad you enjoyed Honey Bear Ridge - we'd love to have you back again :) Indeed, we are in the mountains, and you must drive up some steep roads to get there, however, all of the roads to the cabin are actually 2 lane ( they do seem narrow at some spots lol), and all are paved and city maintained (thats a BIG plus in the mountains). You just have to remember - the prize is at the top ;-) Take care~until next time... Chris, Lynn & Lauren

“Lovely place”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We met here for a short family reunion. Sitting on the deck, talking and sipping wine, was awesome! The view and the breeze were lovely, even with 85 degrees! Be prepared for a short rough-ish road to the cabin. When you see the drive on the left (it's a sharp V turn), drive 100 yards beyond to a turn around on the left so you can enter the steep driveway straight into the drive and coming down the hill. When you exit the driveway, also go to the left (up the hill) back up to the turn around area. This eliminates all potential problems entering or exiting the drive. Do not try to turn right out of the drive way. Your bumper, front and back) may scrape, even at a slow speed. Since this is easily solved, this is not why I gave this cabin a 4-star rather than 5. The queen bunks in the lower level are adorable and comfortable. However......they are really much better for children as they are a challenge to get in and out of -especially for those of us with "maturity." :)
The owner, Lynn, was delightful and could not have been nicer or more helpful. Thank you, Lynn!

Jan,

I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your time at Honey Bear Ridge! In the information package we send to all of our guests we mention several times, "Please be sure to follow our directions to the cabin, not your gps, or you will have to turn around on unfamiliar mountain roads . etc". It appears you did not follow our instructions, and inadvertently, took the wrong road - which is a road I would not encourage, and is not the correct road to the cabin. The road you took is undergoing major construction (main water lines), and is the reason you had to make the turn around at the end of the road, and turning left (the wrong directions to the cabin) is the reason for your troubles. I'm very sorry you missed these instructions, and the map we provided with highlighted directions to the cabin. We are always available by text, phone or email, as was mentioned numerous times as well, and would have gladly helped you :) Personally, I would agree that bunk beds are more suited for children, even being a queen size upper and lower. However, the bunk beds are shown in our listing,, and being one our guests favorite features, we allow them to make the decision as to whether they are appropriate for their families situation.

Thank you again for staying at our cabin!

Chris, Lynn & Lauren
