About Whitney

We're a family of grandparents, parents and children that love the Gatlinburg area so much that we wanted to own a piece. We wanted a place to enjoy together and to offer to others for the same reason. Our family has shared many great memories in Black Bear Falls, and we know you will too!!!

Whitney purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Whitney chose Gatlinburg

Our family chose A Black Bear's Trail because we wanted a cabin with a view. We also wanted to add a one bedroom to our two and three bedroom cabins here in the Black Bear Falls Resort.

What makes this cabin unique

A Black Bear's Trail is hands down in the absolute PERFECT LOCATION!!!! You will never have to fight traffic when leaving this resort to run to the store, gas, restaurants. We loved how the cabin is conveniently located to all of our needs. The cabins have been strategically built in a way that offers privacy with breathtaking views. Of course having a breathtaking view which is a definite plus.

Just a few flaws from perfect...

  • 3 of 5

I'll start with what I didn't like, since I feel like even though almost everything was as it should have been, the few things that weren't could be dealbreakers for someone.

1) The view of the mountains in the pictures is slightly deceiving. If the leaves have not fallen off the trees, they block the vast majority of the view from the deck. The view from the hot tob picture is pretty accurate, but keep in mind that's looking off the edge of the deck at the corner of the hot tub... With leaves on the trees, we had to go out of our way to see the view. Similarly, related to the wide open beautiful views, I'm not sure if those were pictures taken from a camera held off the deck to get the trees and deck out of view, or what, but that wide open view is definitely not available from any casual standing point in the cabin / on the deck. There is a cabin in front of this one one the true 'edge' of the hill that blocks the pretties views. Having never been to the mountains before, I was mostly excited specifically FOR the views, so this was quite disappointing to me (I actually shopped around homeaway locations just looking for a good view). I have to admit, we ended up sneaking over to our neighbor's cabin when they weren't home just to get the real view...

2) The Jacuzzi tub INSIDE of the cabin had mold growing in all of the jets. I'm not sure how many people look for this sort of thing when they get in any kind of jetted tub, but it was pretty apparent in this one. The hot tub outside seemed pretty clean, but we opted not to use the one inside due to the moldy jets. Also pretty disappointing since again, it was a selling point originally (I didn't get to use the bath bombs I bought in town!).

3) The fan light in the bedroom was burned out. I'm not sure if it's on a series circuit or what, but we couldn't get it to turn on no matter what methods we tried. Maybe user error, but kind of annoying that it didn't just default to "on" when I flipped the switch. We never ended up getting it to work, so nighttime was a bit dark in our room save for the dim lamps next to the beds.

As far as everything that was good, the rest of the cabin was exactly what you see in the pictures. Clean, has all the necessities, and is in an AWESOME location if you want to be in the middle of lots of attractions. It's just outside of town, so you're not actually drowning in tourists if you need some time to relax.

3/5 for my two personal dealbreakers. 5/5 Otherwise.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate honest reviews:) Unfortunately, the trees having leaves on them in September is something that's out of our control. Yes, the late fall views are definitely the best! As far as the hot tub jets, they were checked with no sign of mold. Since they get cleaned multiple times per week due to our calendar being booked full all year, mold can't grow. The ceiling fan light would have been an easy fix since we have on sight maintenance. A quick call or text always solves any minor inconveniences:) If you've never been to the area, Gatlinburg fall foliage follows most Midwest seasonal "schedules". Late October to end of November are the best views!

Fantastic Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this cabin...perfect location, quiet and relaxed yet all the amenities you could want! It was a short drive into Gatlinburg for shopping and activities if we wanted. Otherwise, if you just wanted to chill at the property...that was great too! The cabin was (in my opinion) perfectly located, clean and priced right! Before we even left, we were planning our next trip here and will definitely try to stay at this cabin!

Perfect weekend getaway!

The perfect place for a weekend getaway. The cabin didn't miss a beat. Perfect location to all the attractions, yet secluded for privacy. Highly recommend!

Love it here!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Perfect size for the 2 of us. Close to everything but so peaceful in the mountains. We love Black Bear Falls. Third time here and it most definitely not our last!

Where do you live?

Neat, clean, with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights in this cabin and enjoyed it very much. The owner has thought of everything you may possibly need while you're there such as a fully stocked kitchen, soap, shampoo, very soft towels, etc. No complaints here!

Cute cabin

  • 5 of 5

I really liked this cabin. Great location only minutes from Gatlinburg. Grocery nearby with restaurants too if you decide not to go into town (we liked Three Jimmys just up the road). Cute, very well maintained community. My son enjoyed the pool table and arcade games, and we all loved using the hot tub after a day of hiking. The cabin is near the top of the hill so you get some mountain views (there are other cabins in front of this one but that wasn't an issue for us). The porch curtains and trees give plenty of privacy.

My only complaint is the linens and pillows could use an update - but in all fairness I did not contact the owner about this.

I would definitely stay here again - we had a great time!
