Had a wonderful short visit. I would recommend this stay to anyone. A nice, comfy cabin stay and having a hot tub, in addition, was divine.
Loved our stay here on our honeymoon. Great view and wonderful memories.
We celebrated our 24th anniversary at the cabin. It was very cozy and relaxing. The view and hot tub were great. It's not far from shows, shopping, and restaurants. No Bears - Dang! thanks for a great time! we'll be back soon!
This was our first vacation together and not only was this a beautiful place to stay, but it was also a beautiful getaway we would love to come back to again. So much stuff to do here, everyone is so nice. The view is wonderful.
Had a wonderful time in this cabin. It is very well layed out and set up for being a small cabin. View from the cabin was good. Hot tub was a great addition for our stay. Location was great for travel to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg both. Only complaint is the the shower heads be taller.
We had an amazing time. Beautiful View and cabin is super cozy!
We celebrated our 8th wedding Anniversary this week with our 5 year old daughter and one on the way. This is our second time here at Black Bear's den and it's like a home away from home. We visited Roaring Forks and Cades Cove. My husband proposed to me at Cades Cove 9 years ago and at the exact location, we go to see a mama bear. It was so special. We hope to be back soon with our next addition to the family. As always with love. The Williams's family from North Carolina
We had a great time, wish we could stay longer! We were supposed to head to SC, but the hurricane had other plans, ugh. No bear sightings. We visited Anakeesta, the Aquarium, and played a lot of mini golf. Loved the views and the hot tub! Hope to be back soon.
Beautiful, spectacular, very clean and great place to stay while traveling to Tennessee :)
We enjoyed our stay here. We went to all the coaster rides, Sky bridge, Island. Eat at to many to write. We will for sure come back for another family vacation. We love it here! We are from Kennett, Missouri on a family vacation.
Cabin was perfect to start our honeymoon week. Clean, cozy, with a view, and the hot tub is a bonus.We drove through some of the National Forest. Beautiful! We really enjoyed all they had to offer on "The Island" more than Gatlinburg. Tuckaleechee Cavern was a cool and interesting visit. Overall, what a time! The driveway up is certainly interesting too:) Thank you! Overall, what a t
Kenny and I had a great time. Didn't see any bears but enjoyed the snow flurries and seeing the sights. We will definitely be back.
We enjoyed our visit from Ohio as this was a family-friendly trip.
The cabin was beautiful and very comfortable. The view is amazing. The seclusion made it hard to find but extremely worth it. I'm planning to visit this very location in the fall.
Great location and view. Was very clean and had everything we needed Would definitely stay here again
We absolutely loved our stay at "Black Bear Den"! The staff was very responsive, polite and efficient. We loved the coziness and cleanliness of the cabin. The view is spectacular and the hot tub is the extreme of relaxation after a long day out! Good times were had!
We truly enjoyed our stay! We loved going into Gatlinburg. Lots of Christmas lights and decorations. We also drove thorough the mountains to soak in the views. We spent most of the Christmas Eve in the hot tub relaxing. We only went into town for one day and enjoyed the pizza at Mellow Mushroom and used the grill to grill streaks. Definitely recommend doing the lift in Gatlinburg to overlook the entire town. It was just the two of us but there is plenty room for kids.
We enjoyed our stay, going up ad down the driveway was an adventure. We ate at the Old Mill Restaurant, Graze Burgers, Ole Red's and Papa Leone's Pizza. we went to Dollywood, the Christmas lighter were nice and the cinnamon head was worth the wait in line! We also went to Gatlinburg for the sky lift and sky bridge. Also had a lot of fun tasting at Sugarlands. Enjoyed relaxing away from our kids and fur children in the serene setting.
We had a fantastic stay! We love the cozy cabin. It was or very first stay away from Missouri and away from our kids. We hope to make it an annual trip and hope to stay here again in this Peaceful setting. We enjoyed every minute.
The Cabin was very awesome and we loved the little hear made of towels. We went to Gatlinburg and walked the stip and went to several different places but our favorite was going to the aquarium and go-carting. We will definitely renter again. From Kentucky
Cabin was good, very "Rustic". Always have a good time.
Me and family had a good time. It's a pretty cabin. We Enjoyed our Thanksgiving here.
My boyfriend didn't see a bear. He is beary disappointed. Ha! Beautiful hike @ Alum Cave, new fantastic friends and food at Della Santina. Sit @ the Bar , the owner is fabulous! Morning Coffee on this porch is my new favorite Hobby. Thanks.
Very Awesome Cabin. Very Quiet and chill will be back real soon. We loved it!!! From: Lumberton!
My husband and I had a wonderful time here at the cabin and area. We always enjoy this part of the country! The cabin was cozy and relaxing- was much needed! We hiked at Grotto Falls and visited Cades Cove. Beautiful! We cannot wait to come back. Blessings! Michiganders
The cabin was very awesome and we loved the little heart made of towels. We went to Gatlinburg and walked the strop and went to several different places, but our favorite was going to the aquarium and go-karting. We will definitely return again.

The cabin is very nice. Our stay was wonderful. Beware of bears, 'cause they are here. The Trolley's are the best way to go. It saves gas around here. we had a great time and will return.
From Long Island and Brooklyn NY We had a wonderful time. We were very busy visiting Forbidden Caverns, Dolly's Stampede Show, Great Bear Rafting, Covered Bridges, Nascar Go Carts, Bush Bean's Center, Gatlinburg Sky Lift and walked the Suspension Bridge 680 in length.
My friend and I saw a bear! It was Beary Awesome!
My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary. We enjoyed the cabin and the quiet time. Our favorite times were on the back porch listening to music and reconnecting and being together.
Me and my family are here for a short vacation. We started our day by going to Cades Cove. It was my first time but my parents and my sister have been before. It was very beautiful. We didn't see any bear though. We did see some turkey and crows. After that we went to Tuckaleechee Caverns. It was very cool and interesting. Next up Dollywood. We went to see the drone show and the fireworks!
Such a Beautiful View here!! We had an amazing time white water rafting, zipling and a rope course. Then we explored and went shopping and relaxed. All in all it was wonderful.
Loved this cabin
It was very quiet and relaxing. Had an amazing view overall it was really nice.
Had a great stay the view was everything!
We enjoyed staying here at the cabin! While we were here we... drove to Clingman's Dome and on the drive back we stopped to hike Chimney Tops Trail. that evening we enjoyed the Dolly Parton's Stampede! We spent time in Gatlinburg, rode the skylift, walked over the swinging bridge. We drove the Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail. Thanks for everything! 3 sisters from Pennsylvania
We visited over a long May weekend. We visited Dollywood (buy the fast passes!) We also visited Ober Gatlinburg and walked downtown Gatlinburg. We loved "The Village" with 27 unique shops. A good place to eat is the Alamo Steakhouse, they were great! We really enjoyed our stay.
The cabin itself is a nice cabin with plenty of space for what you need. The hot tub is in a great location and are able to watch the sun rise perfectly in the mornings. The pool table location is a little tight to be able to play well but overall a great cabin with only one cabin next to you!
Cabin fit our needs for the week, which was basically somewhere in the mountain area to sleep, as we spent majority of our time exploring Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Very cozy and the perfect size for the two us. We even had a furry visitor (bear) on our porch one night.
We enjoyed our 3 night stay in this great cabin. Very clean and comfortable.
It was the perfect getaway stay for me and my husband!
All the way from Stevensville, MI. We came down to relax and put everything aside for 5 days. Tennessee if beautiful and we enjoyed our stay!
We came for our honeymoon. We will definitely be coming back! If you have never been here the wax museum and the local goat are some good spots to go!
My fiancé and I came here to celebrate our anniversary- 10 years! We had an amazing stay. The cabin is so cute and cozy! We would definitely come back! We plan to get married in Gatlinburg.
The Anderson's was here and we enjoyed ourselves here in the cozy cottage. We also enjoy the nature walks, the downtown tour of shopping center and rides. Beautiful time to make memories.
We got married in February and came down from Ohio for a mini-honeymoon. We loved our time and enjoyed movie nights and the hot tub. We hike in the national park and enjoyed the beautiful views.
Wonderful stay! It was beyond nice to get away and have a relaxing weekend to ourselves. I would highly recommend the skylift for a rush of adrenaline and Holston's for dinner. It located on Dolly Parton Parkway. We even got engaged! We will be returning very soon!
Beautiful and we plan on taking up hiking as a new hobby with our three children. Than you for a wonderful stay on our fist visit to TN!
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We loved the hot tub, watching Netflix on the couch on a rainy day, and finding all the lovely hiking trails this part of TN has to offer. The cabin itself was clean and organized. We’d definitely rent this cabin again!
Beautiful little cabin with excellent view and close to everything.
This was the most relaxing anniversary getaway ever! My and husband and I have never been so relaxed and at peace as we were here at "Black Bear Den". We will be returning very soon. The early morning sunrise was the best part of the stay for us. All the way from Michigan.
Thank you for allowing us to use your cabin. It has truly been a home away from home. My husband and I enjoyed our 6 year anniversary with our 3 year old daughter. She really enjoyed the "hot water" (hot tub). We look forward to visiting again.
This was our first getaway together and enjoyed every minute of it. We were quite active and on the go a lot but accomplished much. We hiked Grotto Falls (highly recommend) visited Anakeesta and the Sky lift Park. We enjoyed the cabin in the evening playing pool and sitting out while the sun was setting. Super cozy and relaxing! We highly recommend this cabin and would love to come back.
We came here for our honeymoon. We enjoyed going on a wine and shine tour that toured different wineries and distilleries in the area. We enjoyed using the grill l to make our dinner for the 4th. We relaxed in the hot tub and played pool. Enjoyed the Smokies!
Beautiful cabin and a great stay. Will definitely be coming back.
My boyfriend and I came here a little getaway. It was really nice to stay and this cabin with someone special. The cabin is perfect.
Really enjoyed our stay. This was our honeymoon. It has been peaceful and quiet and relaxing. I will be back next year for our anniversary. we were able to ride in the helicopter and see the beauty of these mountains.
This was a great and relaxing get-a-way. My husband and I really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the beautiful view.
I brought my husband to this sweet little getaway spot for his 30th birthday. This cabin was everything we hoped for and more! We especially enjoyed the beautiful view and how peaceful our stay was. We expect to return very soon and looking forward to many more special memories to make.
