Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed 5 nights at lil' bear cabin. We were very impressed with how clean and beautifully decorated the cabin is. It was fully stocked , it had everything we could have needed. There were 4 adults and 3 children, we enjoyed a 4 generation family vacation, ages ranging from 77-8 years old. The cabin accommodated all of us. It gave us plenty of sleeping room and room to enjoy the company of all. We loved watching the sun come up each morning over the mountains and We spent most nights watching the sun go down while sitting on the deck relaxing after fun filled days! We were able to go to lookout mountain and ruby falls. We spent a day at rock island swimming and seeing waterfalls. We spent a day at Tennessee aquarium, we were very impressed with the aquarium. We went to foster falls and did some hiking, the kids loved swimming at the foot of the water falls!! It was such a wonderful family oriented stay. It was so nice enjoying the outdoors and going back to such a beautiful comfortable cabin. It really was like home! We are looking forward to returning to lil' bear cabin. We have decided to make it a tradition for our family!!

Owner's Response: Oh my stars! Thank you so much for the 5 star review! I so enjoyed hearing about three sweet couples that travel together each year. It is always a thrill and privilege to have amazing renters who enjoy our cabin on the mountain as much as we do. We are honored that you had such a great time staying with us and exploring the area. Spring is such a great time to enjoy the outdoors, the back deck, and other local attractions. I'm sure there's still more that you can explore...we hope to see you again soon! Best! R-

what a view!

  • 5 of 5

My (new!) husband and I kicked off a 10 day vacation at Lil' Bear Cabin and we could not have made a better choice. Renee was approachable, quick to respond, helpful and so so kind. Upon first arriving at the cabin the view really look us away. The quiet, serene experience we had was much more than we could have ever anticipated. The cabin was cozy and comfortable with a fireplace and full kitchen. We truly could not have asked for a better experience and cannot wait to visit again!

New, spacious, comfortable, and that view!

  • 5 of 5

Renee was great, quick to respond and has put the little touches in the property that makes the difference. The property is new and spacious (the pictures don't show how large the space is). We had a family reunion of 12 people, and were able to rent the cabin next door. The combination of these made a perfect family getaway. The cabin comfortably accommodated 6 adults. Most time was spent on the deck enjoying the views, hummingbirds and hot tub. The local Piggly Wiggly provided all our cooking/grilling needs and we enjoyed hikes at the University of the South and Foster Falls (bring your swim trunks). Highly recommended!!

Peaceful and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the cabin. What an amazing view! Hummingbirds visited daily while we sat on the deck. We hiked at beautiful locations nearby, and drove a short distance to visit Cumberland Caverns, Rock City and Chattanooga. Everything we needed was provided (we really appreciated the extra towels) and our host was always available to answer a question. We can't wait to stay here again!

Beautiful, Serene Setting

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this cabin with my dog and three children as a stop over point between Wisconsin (where I went for the summer) and Florida (where I live). We needed a place to rest and run around. It is absolutely adorable. The home was clean, well supplied, and I love the authentic feel of the cabin. The owner was responsive and gracious. We found a park with some trails to take everyone for a long walk after the long car ride. It is quiet and remote, yet very close to town accommodations and right of the interstate, which made access easy. My ONLY suggestion, is that I would have felt slightly more comfortable if there was a fence, since I had a dog and a 2 year old. That is minor though!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are thrilled to be your "cabin away from home" while on your way traveling back to Florida. I'm sure the kids enjoyed the park and the hike. ;) Thank you so much and please let us know if you will be traveling through again. Best!
