    "What a Wonderful Weekend"

    We couldn't be more pleased with our stay in Bear Den. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. We went grocery shopping before checking in and didn't leave the cabin until checkout. The mountain views were spectacular. I'd highly recommend this cabin. We will definitely be back.

    "Clean, Amazing Stay"

    Clean, and I mean vacuum marks on the carpet clean. The place was amazing. Not a thing out of order. Beautiful view. Quiet and private. A++ all around. I also have to give appreciation to the company because we forgot to checkout and realized on our drive home. I called and left a voicemail. I missed the return call, but they let me know it was ok and was wished a safe journey home. After spending hours online reading reviews of places to stay, this place had the best reviews. I will definitely agree that it was. We will be back. There were even polite signs posted throughout on how to work/handle different things related to the place (air, trash, the amazing hot tub). Just awesome. Oh!, the bed was amazingly comfortable for both myself and my GF who both have different tastes in mattress.

    "Fantastic weekend away"

    Place was perfect....super clean, everything worked well. Murphy bed upstairs was great for kids and we took downstairs a king bed which was super comfortable! A little "out of town" but not bad at all...only 10 min. Also less busy out there.

    Manager Response:

    Thank you for your business! We hope you will continue to enjoy Elk Springs Resort's cabins for many years to come! We are running a great Groupon promotion right now. Feel free to check it out and book your 2017 vacation with us!

    "Great Anniversary Trip"

    This is a beautiful cabin in a perfect location. The cabin is even nicer than the pictures show it to be, the furniture is in great shape and the bed is wonderfully comfortable. It was immaculate with high quality sheets and towels. The location of the cabin is away from the noise of the town, but within easy driving distance of Gatlinburg and the Great Smokey Mountain Park. We stayed for seven nights and we still didn't get to do everything we wanted to do. We can't wait to go back and we will absolutely stay at Elk Spring Resorts. I can't say enough good things about this cabin.

    "Perfect Romantic Getaway! "

    My girlfriend and I were more than satisfied with the whole experience with Elk Springs, checking in was very convenient and fast, no front desk to deal with, you just head to your cabin and they make sure everything is ready. I personally researched for days who had the best cabin rentals in Gatlinburg and I will say hands downs Elk Springs is number one. And I'll tell you why first off the cabins are amazing! We stayed in the "Bear Den" cabin which was very clean, king size bed was extremely comfortable,cabin already has all the plates and utensils you need to cook breakfast or whatever you'd like. Cozy couch with big screen and fireplace along with an amazing view. Hot tub was phenomenal right outside the bedroom door. I could go on and on about how the cabin was just perfect and exceeded my expectations. If you want the perfect romantic getaway do yourself a favor and go with Elk Springs, you won't be disappointed.

    We stayed at the Bear Den in Oct. 2015. It is a beautiful cabin. I can't imagine it being any nicer. We also enjoyed the beautiful view from the cabin and the surrounding area. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to stay in a relaxing and beautiful place.

    "Bear Den's A Winner"

    The Bear Den is a well maintained cottage with a great view of the mountains. Even though you have neighbors on either side you never see them from your decks. The hot tub was so relaxing after a day of hiking. My husband and I played pool each evening after cooking dinner at the cottage. This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. I would definitely use Elk Springs again!

    "The Perfect Spot"

    The entire process for reserving and staying at the cabin was smooth and efficient. The location of our cabin was just in the right place. It was in a quiet area, but you were no more than 20 minutes away from anything you might need including downtown Gatlinburg and some great places to eat off the beaten path. We were happy with this entire experience!

    "Our stay at bear ben"

    This was a great stay, out of the hustle of downtown Gatlinburg (about a 20 min drive) and the cabin was very up to date with granite countertops, modern appliances, a very comfortable king bed and of course a great view. The management company was very good and followed up several times. My only problem and the reason I rated it four instead of five stars is they need to trim several trees that are growing taller than the top deck obstructing the perfect view as seen in this picture. The picture you see of the two chairs looking out isn't exactly as it looks now as there is a large, tall tree on the left side and other trees growing up. They need to trim several trees down to where it looks exactly like the picture as that can be deceiving. If you are sitting on the right chair you can see unobstructed. We would definitely come back to this cabin but would check before we make our next reservations to ensure they've trimmed down the trees.

    We went for the Outdoors around the cabin, but what a treat it is to come back to this place. The cabin is two floors and looks like it was just built. Everything was just the way it's listed to be, dishes, hot tub, inside bath was a hot tub style, with jets and all. (came in handy on that rainy night.) all in all I really cant say enough, if you do get the place, look in the guest book, Lisa and Chris, we put down some great notes.

    This is our second time at Bear Den. As always, the facilities were lovely and the people who maintain the property were attentive and helpful. The view from the cabin is spectacular and has plenty of room for two people. It's a short drive the nearest store, and a short drive from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Couldn't complain about a thing!

    Fabulous mountain view, and the sound of the creek down below was so relaxing. Everyone was very friendly, got a great recommendation for a hike with our kids at Greenbriar. It was a little windy during our visit, so we couldn't take advantage of the firepit, but it was nice to have that amenity. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfy. The kids got a kick out of the murphy bed. Would totally recommend this cabin!

    "The Bear Den...great little home away from home!! "

    The Bear Den was our family's first Gatlinburg cabin experience. It was so much more than we had even hoped for! From the beautiful view of the mountains & cozy living room upstairs to the master suite downstairs...we loved it all!! We enjoyed the pool table & hot tub. The soft luxury linens were a nice touch as well. The cabin was very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg & so easy to find. The staff was great. They even called to check on us after we arrived to see if we needed anything. The cabin was immaculately clean! It had everything we needed. The beds honestly were some of the most comfortable we've ever slept on (& we own a furniture business so we've tried several brands of mattresses)!! We look forward to our next Smokey Mountain getaway. We would love to stay at the Bear Den again!!

    "Week In The Mountains"

    The Bear Den cabin was beautiful. Ceiling to floor, everything was wood. Professionally decorated. Bear themed accents were well placed throughout. The only small negative on the cleanliness, was the presence of beetle bugs. Otherwise the cabin was expertly and professionally presented. The property owners and management group obviously take great pride in offering guests a turn-key visit with lots of appeal. The cabin is only 12 miles out of Gatlinburg after the turn onto 321. Out of the crowds, but close enough to all the excitement. The management called upon our arrival to see if we needed anything. But everything worked as it should, so there was nothing we needed to call them to fix. Went just as a vacation should. Everything functioned properly, the residence was clean and beautiful; the visit was stress free and relaxing. Many thanks to Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals.
