About the Owner

Welcome to our cabin high atop the mountain. Sandra and I, plus our kids and Ginger our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever want you to have a great time just as we do when we get the chance to stay in our cabin. We moved from the Twin Cities and settled down in a suburb of Tampa, Florida, but always loved the beauty of the Smoky Mountains as we drove between Florida and Minnesota. We always said that when we could get a place to share with our family and friends we would. We also wanted it to be a place that we could share with others. So please enjoy your stay and hope you feel refreshed and rejuvenated like we do.

Guestbook comments from the manager

There were 18 of us here this week from ages 3 to 89! We came from Seattle, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and North Carolina. We had a great time.

The cabin was awesome with plenty of room. Morning coffee on the deck, watching the Smokies, was a great way to start our days. The week was filled with fun, food and laughter. Our families got to reunite and make more memories together. We are already making plans for our return!

So amazing!

This cabin was spectacular! The pictures were very accurate. My family visited Pigeon Forge for the weekend (it was about 20 of us ranging from age 3-60+). We had an amazing time and will surely consider returning to this great cabin!!

A Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
We were on our very first all family vacation to the Great Smokey Mountains. The Bashful Bear cabin was the best place we could have stayed. The cabin was just terrific and the view absolutely beautiful. The owner was great to work with and answered all questions we had. I highly recommend contacting the owner if you are planning a family vacation.

We visited Clingmans Dome and watched the mist freeze into frost on the trees - an exciting experience. We also drove the loop of Cade's Cove and saw gorgeous scenery and wonderful animals.

Best Vacation Ever...Definitely Going Back!!!

  • 4 of 5
The cabin itself was EXCELLENT!!!! It was exactly as described in the pictures. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it lacked privacy and there were no internal stairs. The cabin is located in Sherwood Forest Resort and the cabins are very close to each other. I could (and did) stand on the porch/patio and have conversations with the group staying in the cabin next to us...they were very friendly :) But the lack of privacy was worth the trade off as the location was very convenient to everything. It was a relatively quick drive to the water/amusement park, horseback riding, ATVs, rafting, zipines, and other tourist attactions. The cabin has an elevator which was GREAT for bringing in the luggage, going from the 1st to the 4th level, and for after being super tired from a long day of activities, but it would have been nice to have internal stairs for those occasions when you didn't want to wait for the elevator or when someone forgot to close the door and the elevator wouldn't come when called. Another AMESOME feature was the intercom system. It was perfect for calling everyone to the main level and for reminding everyone to close the elevator door. We had a group of 19 people ranging in age from 4 months to 49 years old and the cabin had more than enough space for all of us. No one felt crowded and there was always somewhere to go if you wanted a quiet moment to yourself. We stayed at the cabin for 5 nights and no one wanted to leave. Because we were outside the cabin so much doing different activities we didn't have time to enjoy the cabin and all its amenties. Next time we are going to stay at least 7 nights. The cabin has a movie theatre and game room which were also GREAT. The owners were also SUPER!!! They were very responsive to all our needs. Again, although I didn't rate it 5 stars, I would and have recommended this cabin to friends and my family is already looking forward to coming back again next year for a longer stay.

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5
This place is exactly as pictures. Absolutely beautiful views, wonderfully warm and comfy cabin made you feel like you were far away from civilization....yet it was just down the mountain. AMAZING!! First all family vacation since our kids are grown with families of their own and it was all we hoped it would be. Great communication with Management company and owners. All in all it was an easy vacation home and we would stay here again. One of our sons stated " this place has everything except a DRUM SET"
Thanks goodness, our grandchildren provided lots of singing, dancing and noise ...: ). Highly recommend!!!! Sad to leave at the end of our week.

Greatest FamilyVacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
The grand kids did not want to leave the cabin. They watched movies, hooked up their X-Box, band and microphones to the big screen in the theatre room. When not their, they were playing air hockey, pool, shuffle board, fuse ball, or sitting in the hot tub. The view is breath taking. They also enjoyed zip lining, zorbing, NASCAR, and mini golf. The outlets were great. Everyone found something they could not live without. When not cooking in the well equipped kitchen, we ate out at some fantastic local restaurants. The apple barn was our favorite. The kids put this vacation right up there with the family cruise, which they loved. The only thing missing at the cabin was the free/anytime ice cream. I would recommend this for all families. A great bonding experience.

Disappointed

  • 3 of 5
The location was very convenient, the view was great, and the cabin was beautifully decorated. However, the jaccuzzi tub/shower on the top floor would barely drain and it was disgusting getting in the shower behind someone and standing in dirty water with soap scum and shaved hairs floating. Housekeeping would have had to have known this when cleaning it last. Also, I was very embarrassed when my 30 yr old step son and his girlfriend told me they had a bathroom on the ground floor that couldn't even be used because of rat droppings all over the floor. I went to see for myself and sure enough, I wouldn't have expected anyone to walk around in there. Another thing, the theater room is a completely wasted feature unless you pack your own DVD's to bring. There are absolutely NO movies kept on site and the children were so disappointed not to get to hang out in front of the big screen. I would probably never stay here again because it was extremely over priced considering our experience.

Owner's Response: I apologize for the problems you found. While regrettable, Smoky Mountain critters do seek warmth during the winter months. Regardless, I had our Pest Control Company take the necessary actions to minimize future intrusion. I’ve instructed the housekeeping staff to start using the “Zip-It Drain Cleaner” and continue bleaching the tubs to prevent future issues. I have now bolded the section in our Welcome Letter stating that we do not provide DVD’s. The Theater is connected to the Internet, allowing you to access your Netflix account for unlimited online movies. Also, the Theater has a HD Cable box with The Premium Cable Package. Although we value all of the positive comments, we do take very seriously any concerns and address them immediately so our future guests will continue to have great experiences.
