    "Beautiful Stay in Gatlinburg"

    The staff and cabin surpassed our expectations in every way. Elk Springs staff checked in with us the day of arrival and the day after to ensure everything was good and see if we needed anything. They also have a text line during your stay so you can text any questions instead of having to call. The cabin itself, Life's a Bear, was amazing!! Spotlessly clean with wonderful views, a pool table, hot tub and the best fire pit I've ever seen. We're actually working on plans to build one at home! Elk Springs will be the only company we book through in the future.

    "Covid Get Away"

    Absolutely loved this property! We needed to get away just to breathe, relax and take a break from all that is happening in the world around us. " Life's a bear" was perfect! Because of COVID, my wife's OCD wouldn't tolerate a hotel, however, this cabin was perfect! Clean, peaceful and beautiful! Just what the soul ordered. Fours days of doing Absolutely nothing but enjoying the view, and watching nexflex.....Our gateway was complete when a bear came walking out of woods feet away from us as we were sitting outside on the porch minding his own businesses. Once my wife started screaming with excitement, he stopped, turned and looked at her and politely walked backed into the woods. A perfect COVID gateway!

    Had a great long weekend in the mountains. The cabin was spotless and had everything we needed to enjoy the weekend. The front door was stuck when we got there and we called and they immediately sent maintenance to repair it for us!

    "Life’s a bear cabin "

    We have a nice relaxing days at the cabin. Everything look clean and it was well equipped. The location was nice we didn’t have to drive a lot just around 10 min. to get to the main attractions such as Anakeesta theme park, The Ripley’s Aquarium and all the Gatlinburg attractions.

    "Relaxing "

    The cabin is clean, in a great location close to the arts and crafts community and downtown. The view isnt the best but walking out on the driveway or on the upper deck gives you a nice view of the mountains. We have stayed here twice because it is a great cabin for kids. We bring bikes and scooters for them to play. Highly recommend!

    "HORRIBLE! DO NOT BOOK ELK SPRINGS! WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!"

    If you’re idea of a beautiful Smoky Mountain vacation includes a view of asphalt then your in luck, stay at Life’s a Bear....with your stay you’ll also get: dirty, small, cheap couches to cozy up in, a toilet that won’t flush and threatens to overflow every time you use it, beds that make your whole body hurt after sleeping on them (that’s if you can get out of the worn out dip in them to a flat surface) and just in case you may have a complaint, no worries , you will be wrong about everything, they won’t comp ANY of your money for anything, and maintenance will never find anything wrong with the place. We wasted our money! Customer service was terrible and very un- accommodating. Rude rude rude. We left (lost our money) and stayed the rest of our trip at Dollywood Dreammore, where they waited on us hand and foot, had great food inside the hotel with beautiful decor and soft comfortable beds...oh! And it was a lot less money per night!! Don’t waste your time or money at an Elk Springs Resort! You will leave being anything but relaxed!

    Manager Response:

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Ashley. We are sorry to hear of your frustration, however, would like to clarify some of the details of this review. We did receive a phone call from you letting us know you were not happy with the cabin and had already left and found someplace else to stay. The representative apologized and went over our policy, as stated in the contract signed prior to arrival, that we would not be able to refund without first being given the opportunity to correct any issues. We did send a technician out to the cabin with a list of the complaints. He flushed every toilet in the cabin repeatedly and could not find an issue with any of them. He was able to find a very small mark on the couch you are referring to that looks like someone marked on it with a marker. This was a spot so small that without knowing to look for it, it would be easily overlooked. We can assure you, the mattresses are in great condition, although they may be a little firmer than you are used to. As far as your comment on a view of asphalt, the hot tub does overlook the front of this cabin, as clearly advertised on our website. The pictures and descriptions on the website clearly reflect all aspects of this cabin. While we sympathize with your disappointment, we do not feel that refunding would be fair in this situation given there were no mechanical issues found upon inspection. The cabin and amenities are exactly as they are advertised. This cabin continually receives rave reviews, however, we can understand not every cabin is going to suit everyone's taste. In fact, we received a 5-Star review from the very next guest that stayed at the cabin! We do care about our guests and work hard to provide exceptional customer service, this was certainly not an exception. The representative apologized repeatedly and showed the utmost respect throughout your conversation. We sincerely apologize for your disappointment.

    "LOVED Life's a Bear!"

    My wife and I had a fantastic time! The cabin was easy to find, clean,very roomy and we had everything we needed. The hot tub and pool table are a nice touch. The location was close enough to town yet just far enough away. Thank you so much for allowing us to use the cabin.
