“Quiet, woodsy stay, close to Gatlinburg”

Enjoy your stay here, there's lots to do in the cabin and lot to do in the surrounding area. Dorothy is easy to reach by phone and will help you solve anything that's not right or that you don't understand. Our only complaint are the satin sheets (whats wrong with these guys, huh), They're hard to prop yourself up on to read (read!, whats wrong with these guys) and during the night your pillow and covers slide off the bed. Otherwise everything is as advertised. Take the winding road up to the cabin slowly, better for your car's safety and for the occasional black bear that you may see. This is a two story cabin, with private decks on both levels, hot tub on the upper deck. Font door opens to upper level at the kitchen, living room, and eating table tucked away in a corner. Fireplace in LR is shutoff for summer season, also, full bath on first floor. Lower level, has rec. (with futons), master bedroom with spa tub, electric fireplace and master bath. TV viewing in all areas.

Gatlinburg is a carnival (thats a plus and a minus). Ride the shuttle from the Welcome Center for free parking. When driving or walking the town pay attention and don't hit or get hit. Some of the best stores are off the main strip. Find the 8 mile loop road for the local crafters!

Smoky Mountain NP is wonderful, take your time and enjoy. The Trail Road called Roaring Fork is quietly scenic, try it in the early morning or evening. Excursions to the park take longer than you might expect (traffic, scenery, curves, little walks).

OK, one more negative, not to discourage you, just to inform. At the cabin there is no yard space. You have the woods all around you except for your parking space in front that is large enough to turn around in so you can head out the next morning.

If we were going back, we'd look first to see if this cabin was available.

Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I enjoyed reading your review. So you know for your next stay, we do have extra sheets in the chest at the top of the stairs, both cotton and microfiber sheets. Also the fireplace is not turned off for the summer. It should of turned on with the timer knob. We have it on a timer so you can set it on up to 30 minutes at a time, this is just for safety to prevent it from being left on after someone leaves the cabin.
Thank you again for booking with us and for taking the time to leave a review.

“Beautiful serene hideaway in deep woods”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

This cabin is a perfect place to unwind for a very relaxing weekend. It is conveniently located 10 minutes from Gatlinburg so getting there is not a problem. It is located quite deep in the woods and at a decent elevation to provide a good view.

The road that gets to it is a little tricky to drive up. Has a lot of sharp turns and steep curves on the climb. Parking too is tight to be able to reverse. But once you get there it's worth it.

All the facilities are as promised. The cabin is very nicely maintained. TV, a good DVD collection, open wifi, games. The kitchen is well equipped, bedroom is well furnished with decent quality linen. It says 'sleeps 6' although I couldn't find any additional beds for more than 2 people.

I would definitely consider going there again and won't hesitate in recommending it to others.

I am glad you enjoyed the cabin and look forward to your next stay. The road from the main parkway upto the cabin does have a sharp turn but we love that it is only 1.2 miles off the main parkway so the drive is short.
I am sorry you could not locate the extra sleep areas. The cabin does sleep 6. Beds in the cabin are 2 sleepers in the King bed in the bedroom, 1 on each of the 2 sofa beds in the game room (the back of the sofas fold down to create a bed) which we recommend for children or petite adults, and then there is a sofa bed in the livingroom that sleeps 2. Since it is a one bedroom, this cabin is great for couples and small families because the bedroom is a romantic haven for a couple and the sofa beds are great for kids.
Glad you enjoyed the serenity!

“Perfect honeymoon spot!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This cabin was great! It was located close to everything, but just far enough to make it quiet and very relaxing. The hot tub was very nice. The driveway was kind of a pain, but with our truck we were able to deal with it.

I am so glad you had a wonderful honeymoon. I The driveway has been slightly washed away by the unusual amount of rain the last few months but we are having it built back up. So the driveway will not be an issue for future guests or your next stay. Thanks for staying at Bears Escape Cabin.

“It was a great honeymoon vacation!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The ONLY suggestion for the owner we had was to improve the driveway. We drove a 2WD Dodge Ram and was able to maneuver but small cars and lower vehicles would have more of a problem. There was a cabin within sight on both sides but the partition on one side of the balcony and how the other cabin was placed gave us privacy. Inside the cabin was great! We had all the necessities, plus extra towels and wash cloths. The jacuzzi tub and the hot tub were perfect. Dorothy was always quick to respond in the booking process and even when I asked how to operate the bedroom fireplace after we got there. (There's a panel that folds down to show the switches, very well hidden). We would definitely revisit.
