Awesome Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter and I spent a week here in March 2008. It was our 10th anniversary & Spring Break. This was our first "real" vacation and it was great! The home was wonderful and had everything we could have imagined. The location was perfect, away from everything but close enough to enjoy all the sights. We wanted snow soo bad and one day we drove into the mountains and played in the snow. The trip was a dream come true and when we come back we would definitely stay here. Thank you for loaning out your amazing home. Well worth the 14 hour drive from Texas.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon there. It was very beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed it soo much. And plan on coming back with my 9 year old daughter. It was private, but close to everything. We loved it
The owners were wonderful and we had great communication! I have recommended it to all my friends!
Thank you for our beautiful honeymoon!

Ahhhhh what more can I say!

  • 5 of 5
First I want to thank the owners. When we called to book there was someone else looking at the same dates, the owner contacted the other person to see if they would be willing to change their dates and they said "YES" (thank you very very much to that person) as it was our 40th anniversary. And thank you very much to Jeannie and Bill for making it possible. The cabin was awesome it had everything we could need, we brought our own food, and cooked a lot there. Everything was clean and very very comfortable. If we ever get to come back we hope we can rent this cabin again.

Fantastic cabin, very cozy!!!!

We had the best experience at the bears den. We have stayed in several cabins in the smokies and this one by far was our favorite. Great location, secluded, private and very cozy. We celebrated our 18th Anniversary and had a wonderful time. Thank you Jeannie for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. We are looking forward to coming back real soon, we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks again Sean and Tonya.

Could Not Have Had A Better Experience!

  • 5 of 5
Upon driving up Misty Lane, my wife and I had some ideas of what we were going to see when we arrived at The Bears Den, based upon the pictures, descriptions and reviews that we read online. When we pulled into the driveway, it was as if we had pulled into our home away from home! The tin roof, the well maintained exterior and the front porch complete with rocking chairs and porch swing made me glad I brought my guitar! When we opened the front door, we were flabbergasted with the decor and how it perfectly matched the overriding theme of our trip. Our expectations were immediately exceeded by the bear on the fireplace, the leather couches, the cedar walls and the oversized tub that our daughter loved. Upon further inspection, the place just felt like....home! All the amenities from home are there, from a fully stocked kitchen with sugar, spice, coffee and cutleries, etc, air conditioning, a fireplace, cable TV and even WI-FI. There is a washer and drier unit and a dishwasher, so you truly can pack light if you choose to, as well as a myriad of shampoos and body washes for the bath or shower, as this cabin has a stand up shower as well. The enclosed porch with the hot tub is a very nice and welcomed space, as you can grill out and have the family out in the hot tub, or enjoying a game of air hockey, or just sitting idly at the outdoor table, engaging in conversation. The weather was magnificent the entire week we were there, but if it should be a particularly poor day and you don't want to go out, (you should, rain makes the smoky mountains really 'smoke'!) the owners have stocked the place with board games, cards, a DVD player with some select movies, and XBOX with some select games or the family can spend some quality time on the front porch with the beautiful Tennessee landscape surrounding you! If you are 'on the fence' about this cabin, jump over. The pictures don't give an accurate representation of how perfect this place is. Our daughter, at four years old, didn't want to leave, and my wife and I truly didn't either! YES, we would go back in a minute, and YES, we plan to.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful, and they leave a detailed manual on the table to act as your Bears Den "Guide". To Bill and Jeannie, it is obvious you care about this place, as there's a feeling of 'welcome' from curb appeal and the expense and time you've taken to make it such a great retreat. Thank you both for treating us! Best. Vacation. Ever!

Great Cabin! Fantasic Owners!

  • 5 of 5
Jeannie, the owner, was very nice. I love that she allowed us to pay for the cabin in three payments instead of asking for a credit card payment only. The cabin was clean with cute bear décor. The bed was comfortable as was the sofa & chair/ottoman combo. The WiFi was easy to set up, and the TVs were not difficult to get going. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, coffee, sugar, pots, pans, & utensils. We have stayed in the Hidden Mountain area twice so we know the area, and it is fairly easy to access with one tight switchback. The neighborhood is clean and quiet. We felt safe. I would stay here again!!
