We very much enjoyed our stay at Barely Afraid. The views are spectacular and the accommodations are more than comfortable. The kitchen is so well-stocked that you don't need to bring anything with you at all. We found the owners to be very responsive and helpful. Thank you for providing a wonderful place for our getaway!

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Wonderful place. The view was outstanding. Wonderfully decorated cabin. All of us enjoyed our stay. Just wish we had more time to enjoy being at the chalet. We were too busy going to Dollywood(a great day),sightseeing and going to the Aquarium (great experience as well). Loved our time in the mountains.

“Bearly Afraid made us feel Completely Welcome!”
Reviewed 15 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Terry and OC made this the most enjoyable experience I have ever had with a vacation rental. Let me start by saying the chalet is fantastic! The view is spectacular and the decor of the chalet is very homey and welcoming. Both Terry and OC kept us to date on the road conditions as a strong wind and rain storm hit the week before we arrived. We were provided with alternate directions that got us there with no issues. If you are going to stay in the Gatlinburg area at all, then this is the chalet for you. I can not thank both Terry and OC for welcoming us into there home and giving my family the vacation that we all so desperately needed.

“Absolutely amazing”
Reviewed 13 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I am writing this on behalf of Ray, my name is Liz and I am one of the seven family members that stayed in this beautiful chalet...from the moment we walked in we felt like we were home..everything was perfect , the view stunning ..we were fortunate to see the full moon over the mountain ..as we were walking out to pack up the car what did we see? Baby bear footie prints on the deck! That came to say goodbye.....We cannot say enough about this beautiful place and look forward to coming back and we're really bummed that we had to leave...love this place ..

“I could "bearly" stand to leave this place!”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My friends and I went to the Smokey Mountains for a week and stayed at the Bearly Afraid chalet. It was wonderful. The fall colors were at their peak during the week. The views from the chalet were breathtaking. The chalet is everything the website describes it to be. I won't go into all the details again, but just know, what the owners write about their place is true. I highly recommend staying here. It is so much better than an apartment or hotel room. It's a house...a home. I've included a few more photos, but there are plenty to look at on their website. I encourage you....don't waste your money on a drab hotel room. Don't invest in a condo or apartment where you will hear the neighbors each time they close a door or turn on their TV. No! Stay at Bearly Afraid and you will settle in your "home away from home."
