We've driven past The Cub (formerly the Bear Cub) for decades, while on camping trips to the National Park campground nearby. This year due to a severe thunderstorm, we called ahead to see if they could accomodate us for one night.
This little gem is very moderately priced, won't break your budget. The new managers have worked very hard to improve the inn. Yes, it's older. No, it's not a Hampton. But it's clean, comfortable, microwave/fridge in each room, bathroom amenities, free wifi, and a super location right by Cosby Creek. There is a really nicely furnished king suite upstairs, for only a few dollars more, that would be terrific for a longer stay.
All rooms are non-smoking. All have either balconies or front & back patio access. Pet friendly with a deposit, refunded instantly in the morning when our dogs passed the test. The managers will do whatever it takes to make you happy.
If the Cosby, Tennessee area is your destination, you really should consider this inn. They do fill up sometimes, so you should call ahead if you're planning to stay. For the price it's a serious bargain and one you should consider if you're looking for a budget stay in a lovely setting.
