    "A Wonderful Place to Stay "

    We really were pleased with our stay. The pictures are exactly what the cabin looks like inside and outside. It was secluded in the outdoor hot tub area which was very nice. It was very clean. A great place for a Honeymoon. Very close to stores, resturants and entertainment. Its well worth the money!! We loved all the cute bear decorations!

    "Personal Compfy Stay"

    This vacation rental is best just for two. I'm the type of person to get home sick; not so much here. Placed in a convenient place close to all attractions. Would not mind renting again with you all! Thank you for the experience!

    "Great experience"

    My wife and I had a wonderful time there. The location is very convenient to restaurants, tanger mall, national park, walt mart, tc, everything is pretty much within 15minutes. The only thing I don't like is the AC in the room makes some noise.

    Manager Response:

    Thank you for your kind review, Feng. Due to the size of the cabin, we have to use a window AC unit there. Unfortunately, we can't do anything to make this noise completely disappear, unless you don't use the AC at all. We have had no other complaints about this, but we do appreciate your feedback. It is nice to hear that you and your wife had a wonderful time here and we hope you will return again in the future.

    "Almost perfect"

    The only issue I had was the window mounted a/c and the parking space. The small unit struggled to keep to cabin at 75 even when temps outside were in the low eighties.I drive a Honda Accord and pulling up all the way my car still stuck out into the road.

    Manager Response:

    We would love the opportunity to solve the problem while you are staying with us, as we have maintenance staff on site and would be happy to dispatch them for a solution. This is the first complaint we have ever had regarding the air conditioner in that cabin and sometimes they start to run low on freon and just need to be recharged. We certainly would do all that we could to make sure you were comfortable during your stay. As for the driveway, while it is small, it is long enough for a full-sized vehicle to park in without it sticking out into the road if you pull all the way up to the front deck far enough. We certainly appreciate your review Jeffrey and hope you will consider a return stay with Elk Springs Resort.

    "Great retreat"

    The cabin was nice and clean. Perfect for a weekend getaway. Only complaint is that we didn't have any trash bags. Everything else was great. Kitchen was more than enough and the hot tub on the balcony was nice for relaxing after long days of hiking. The cabin is a short 5 minute drive to all of the Pigeon Forge attractions.

    "Beautiful "

    I enjoyed my stay at this cabin. The one thing that I had to call maintenance about was the internet and TV. I eventually figured out the internet but the TV maintenance had to show me which remote was used to turn it on and which remote was used to control the channels. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

    Cabin was very nice-enjoyed the proximity to all the attractions. Would have enjoyed a little better view from the deck but was overall a GREAT experience!

    "Perfect Getaway!"

    We really enjoyed our stay in Bear Necessities! The location was great, away from the town noise but only 8 minutes or so from the dinner shows in Pigeon Forge. The cabin was clean and well maintained and everything was neat and spotless. Elk Springs did a fantastic job calling with our door code and then calling the day after check-in to ensure that everything was to our liking. Checkout is super easy. I have no complaints!

    "Awesome Cabin!"

    My husband and I had a great time at this beautiful little cabin during the Memorial Day Weekend! It was very romantic overall. The cabin is private enough but not too far from other cabins. The kitchen was well equipped too. The internet connection was not good though. I tried resetting the device and followed the instructions but it did not help. I had a free hotspot on my phone, so it wasn't a problem. If you have a T-Mobile phone, the cellular network isn't good/non-existent inside the cabin. However, my Verizon cell phone had a good network connection even inside the cabin.

    I am usually too lazy to do reviews but this place was so amazing I had to. Everything was just like described. It was very clean and quiet and conveniently located only about 1.5 miles from the city. If you are looking to spend quality time with you significant other this is the perfect place.

    We were very happy with our stay. The cabin was clean and check in was a breeze. We had to call on one issue but it was dealt with quickly and professionally. The location was great. You felt like you were out in the sticks but were in reality, it was a few minutes from everything. We had a great honeymoon, and the cabin was just a perfect little love nest for us. We will definatly rent from these folks again. If not this cabin another one. I can't recommend them enough for a cabin in Pigeon Forge. Hotels are for the birds.
