My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Bear watch. That evening, not even an hour in a half after checking in, my husband and I were outside in the jacuzzi when a mama bear and her 2 cubs walked up to the stairs of the back patio. Scared to death lol the mama bear went to the front of the house and I was able to run in the house and record the mama bear and her two cubs. As scared as I was, it was such a beautiful experience seeing nature at it’s best. Days into the stay we didn’t have any other visitors and was able to enjoy the outdoor and grill area (I was still nervous lol). Over all, the home was cozy, clean, bug free, and had all the amenities that we needed away from home. My husband and my daughters stayed in the game room playing pool, competition at its best lol. The beds were so comfortable, I fell straight to sleep. Overall, we would definitely stay at bear watch again and again!
The cabin was absolutely beautiful. We even had a mama bear and her three cubs that visited on the porch. But of course we just watched them thru the window of the cabin. It was amazing. The cabin was very clean and well kept up. A huge Thank you to Colonial Properties, for making the rental transaction so easy. I would highly recommend them.
The cabin was absolutely beautiful. We even had a mama bear and her three cubs come to visit on our porch, but of course we watched them thru the window from the cabin. Colonial Properties is the best company to work with. I would highly recommend them.
We enjoyed the seclusion from others, stayed on the mountain, had a wonder time! We have been before and we'll definitely be going back again! The cabin was clean and stocked well, had all the amenities needed ,we even got to see bears this time ,so definitely be on a bear watch! The office personnel were wonderful people, very thorough and were there for any assistance if needed. If you want some quite time and still close enough to town, perfect company to assist you.
Great overall, easy experience.
We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this cabin and will definitely return!

We stayed at Bear Watch and enjoyed it immensely. Very clean and ready to go when we arrived. Beautiful back porch to enjoy nature while sipping your morning coffee. One early morning we had three bears stroll by us sitting on the porch. They are beautiful creatures. They looked at us and moseyed on their way. Cant wait to come back and stay again!
The cabin was clean and meet all our needs got to see a momma bear and her 2 Cubs through the window of the cabin the WiFi was reliable . Everyone enjoyed a nice relaxing time
Cool, comfortable, & cozy... perfect cabin for a mountain getaway.
Cabin was very clean, had everything we needed. We would definitely book again!
The cabin is very nice and has everything you need to stay in and cook. We arrived around 1 in the morning and it was rough navigating to the cabin. All the roads are paved but some spots you can’t see where the road is, either way the cabin itself was perfect and would be good for two couples to share. The owners were very nice as I had a last minute death in my family and they were nice enough to offer to allow us to stay another time within a year. It all worked out where we could just arrive late....I would recommend this cabin to family and friends.
The cabin was a great place for my wife and I to spend our honeymoon in. We really enjoyed our stay and our time in the smokies. Would absolutely consider doing it again with your property in the future.
Great place and wonderful experience!
We had a wonderful time, the cabin is a great place! We were so relaxed we didn’t want to come back home! Thank you for a wonderful time Colonial properties!!
Great Cabin very clean. We had a great time.
The cabin is so quaint and lovely. There is a drive up the mountain but after A-day it got a little more comfortable. And the beds were comfortable and clean, the windows were gorgeous, there was a fireplace a TV, and nature elements and a game Room downstairs. I wish I were staying for a week because Gatlinburg was so charming and there's still much to see just outside of Gatlinburg. I would have been content just to sit in my cabin for several days. Fewer than 8 miles from the center of Gatlinburg but far enough at the top of the Hill to enjoy nature. I wish I had seen more wildlife but the weather was gorgeous and so was the cabin.
The cabin was beautiful! Just what our family wanted/needed for our trip. We really enjoyed our stay!
