Loved Bear Sanctuary
Great cabin! You will see bear!!!
Comfy and Convenient
This house was perfect for our stay. It was very clean and the owner has thought of everything. If you have small kids-- you might want to bring toys and games as there is only a pool table. Also, the house is on a curve of a street and there isn't much room for them to play outside.
The house was clean and very comfy.
Fantastic cabin. The home owner thought of every detail.
We had a lovely stay in this wonderful home. It had everything you need. I’m a VRBO owner myself with over 60 reviews all five stars and I could honestly say, there was no detail missed in this lovely home. Thank you.
Spacious accommodations (we had 11) and well appointed with pretty much everything you would need
Fantastic time at this cabin. David was easy very accessible. Conveniently located and plenty of wildlife. (Lock your vehicles as the bears are a bit nosy). Would recommend and probably stay again
We absolutely loved staying at Bear Sanctuary! It was everything we needed and wanted! Quiet and beautiful! Thank you for letting us have a very happy family get together! Beautiful home!
Amazing and can't wait to come back!
The cabin was great for our 3 generation family! We enjoyed seeing different bears everyday at the cabin for the week we were there. The cabin was very clean and well equipped with everything you would need from pots and pans to laundry detergent. We have stayed at 10 different cabins over the last year's and this was by far the nicest and cleanest. There are 3 decks off the back. The upper deck off the main level with several wooden rockers and an ice chest for drinks. Another deck off the bottom floor of the cabin with chairs and stairs down to the 3rd deck where the hot tub and table are located. The hot tub is newer and had different colored lights which the kids loved. Inside the cabin the bedroom on the first floor is very large and has a great bathroom. We were traveling with my parents who are in their 70s so flat parking and a bedroom on the main level were important to us. The bathroom in the main level bedroom has a huge walk in shower and David even arranged for a shower chair for my parents. Gwen texted us to check on us during our stay and let us know the bears were out while she was cleaning a nearby cabin which we appreciated. She also made wonderful recommendations for food. All the appliances are higher end and not your typical apartment size. We were coming back the day before school started for our kids so it was great to have full size washer and dryer to take all clean clothes home. We stayed on the bottom level where the washer and dryer was which made it easy for me to put a load in first thing in morning. The cabin is about a 5 min drive from downtown Gatlinburg and the road was steep at places but parking is completely level at the cabin. I just wouldn't try it in winter. The cabin is close to bypass and River Rd so you can avoid main rd and traffic. We did go to the pool one day and it was close to cabin. Had several different depths for children of all ages and abilities. The pool was crowded the day we went but it was August and we had access to two other pools. The cabin was also decorated beautifully with period pieces from when the original log structure would have been built. You can tell the cabin had a lot of thought and extras put into it. I really can't say enough great things about this cabin we will definitely stay here in the future. Gwen and David both were great to work with!
