What a Wonderful Weekend
Flynn C. from Sterling Heights, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 We couldn't be more pleased with our stay in Bear Den. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. We went grocery shopping before checking in and didn't leave the cabin until checkout. The mountain views were spectacular. I'd highly recommend this cabin. We will definitely be back.

Ryan M. from Woodhaven, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 Clean, and I mean vacuum marks on the carpet clean. The place was amazing. Not a thing out of order. Beautiful view. Quiet and private. A++ all around. I also have to give appreciation to the company because we forgot to checkout and realized on our drive home. I called and left a voicemail. I missed the return call, but they let me know it was ok and was wished a safe journey home. After spending hours online reading reviews of places to stay, this place had the best reviews. I will definitely agree that it was. We will be back. There were even polite signs posted throughout on how to work/handle different things related to the place (air, trash, the amazing hot tub). Just awesome. Oh!, the bed was amazingly comfortable for both myself and my GF who both have different tastes in mattress.

Nathan T. from Inman, SC does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2016 Beautiful Veiw, I stayed in the bear den. Hot tub had a leak, so we had to fill it with cold water to use it every night. The heat stopped working so we woke up to a freezing cabin. Then on the last night the power wouldn't work to the stairs light, fan over master, and master lights. We decided to leave a day early. I waited in this review to see if Elkspring lodge would call me to try and make it right. Guess what they didn't. I didn't want a refund. So for the bad business part if rate the stay a 1, just for the veiw
Reviewed by: Robert H. recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2016 This cabin was very clean, cozy, and had all the amenities we could ever need or want. We had a beautiful view of the mountains and all the luxuries of home plus some. I recommend staying here if you need some r&r at a fairly reasonable price.
Devin A. from Winchester, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2016 Very clean cabin. They thought of everything we would need, I do wish it was a bit more secluded, but we lucked out and didn't have anyone on either side.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are happy to hear that you had a great stay. Please call our sales department when you are ready to start looking for the perfect cabin for your next visit to the Great Smoky Mountains.

Chris R. from Brentwood, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2016 Place was perfect....super clean, everything worked well. Murphy bed upstairs was great for kids and we took downstairs a king bed which was super comfortable! A little "out of town" but not bad at all...only 10 min. Also less busy out there.
Donna B. from Eldersburg, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2016 This is a beautiful cabin in a perfect location. The cabin is even nicer than the pictures show it to be, the furniture is in great shape and the bed is wonderfully comfortable. It was immaculate with high quality sheets and towels. The location of the cabin is away from the noise of the town, but within easy driving distance of Gatlinburg and the Great Smokey Mountain Park. We stayed for seven nights and we still didn't get to do everything we wanted to do. We can't wait to go back and we will absolutely stay at Elk Spring Resorts. I can't say enough good things about this cabin.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review Donna! We are happy to hear that Bear Den exceeded your expectations. We hope to be a part of many trips to Gatlinburg in the years to come!
Kyle C. from Brodhead, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2015 Great experience. Great cabin. Friendly staff

Timothy F. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2015 My girlfriend and I were more than satisfied with the whole experience with Elk Springs, checking in was very convenient and fast, no front desk to deal with, you just head to your cabin and they make sure everything is ready. I personally researched for days who had the best cabin rentals in Gatlinburg and I will say hands downs Elk Springs is number one. And I'll tell you why first off the cabins are amazing! We stayed in the "Bear Den" cabin which was very clean, king size bed was extremely comfortable,cabin already has all the plates and utensils you need to cook breakfast or whatever you'd like. Cozy couch with big screen and fireplace along with an amazing view. Hot tub was phenomenal right outside the bedroom door. I could go on and on about how the cabin was just perfect and exceeded my expectations. If you want the perfect romantic getaway do yourself a favor and go with Elk Springs, you won't be disappointed.
Robert N. from St. Louis, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2015 Excellent!Cabin was clean and just as described.View from the cabin was awesome!Directions were easy to follow to get to cabins!Very pleased with our stay.Our only regret is only staying 3 nights, we will definitely stay a whole week next time.

Tammy C. from Keene, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2015 We stayed at the Bear Den in Oct. 2015. It is a beautiful cabin. I can't imagine it being any nicer. We also enjoyed the beautiful view from the cabin and the surrounding area. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to stay in a relaxing and beautiful place.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the great review, Tammy! Customer satisfaction is very important to us and your feedback lets us know that we are doing a great job in all areas! We appreciate your business and hope you will return again soon.
A guest from Lincolnshire, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2015 Quite good. The cabin was as advertised and quite enjoyable.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals There is nothing that can compare to a cabin getaway experience in the Great Smoky Mountains. Thank you for letting us know that you enjoyed your time here. We appreciate your review Malvern!
A guest from Bowie, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 The Bear Den is a well maintained cottage with a great view of the mountains. Even though you have neighbors on either side you never see them from your decks. The hot tub was so relaxing after a day of hiking. My husband and I played pool each evening after cooking dinner at the cottage. This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. I would definitely use Elk Springs again!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the 5-star review April! We are pleased that you and your husband had such a great experience at Bear's Den and enjoyed everything about your stay. We hope you are already considering a return visit to one of our luxury cabins.
David H. from New Lenox, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 The entire process for reserving and staying at the cabin was smooth and efficient. The location of our cabin was just in the right place. It was in a quiet area, but you were no more than 20 minutes away from anything you might need including downtown Gatlinburg and some great places to eat off the beaten path. We were happy with this entire experience!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Customer satisfaction is our number one priority and we appreciate you sharing your experience with us! It sounds like you made the perfect choice with Bear Den. It is just the right distance away from all the hustle and bustle of busy downtown Gatlinburg, but just a short drive to local attractions and eateries. We certainly appreciate your 5 star review and look forward to a return visit from you in the future.
Great cabin close to Great Smoky Mountain National Park
A guest from Alton, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 Had a great stay at Bear Den! The cabin is a great mix of rustic charm and upscale luxury. The pictures on the website accurately reflect the state of the cabin with one exception - a tree has grown up on the left side of porch, so while the view is still awesome it is a little different than what is shown. The cabin has everything you need for a great stay and the kitchen has more than enough pans/knifes/cookware. For us the cabin location was perfect. It is located ~20 min from Gatlinburg and the main entrance to the nation park. You are also 10 min from Greenbriar entrance and 15 min from the Cosby entrance. For us it was far enough away to avoid the traffic and crowds of Gaitlinburg, but still close enough to get to the park and restaurants without feeling like it was a long drive. One note is that while the cabin is not on the main road, it is still fairly close to 321 so during the day you could hear road noise, but when the traffic died down at nights there was none.Overall, we enjoyed our stay!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the review Molly. We are always pleased to hear about your cabin vacation experiences. We really can't do anything about the tree that has grown up unless it becomes a safety issue to guests or the cabin itself. As for the traffic, Hwy 321 is heavily traveled. But, as you stated, this cabin does not sit on the main road and the noise was tolerable and didn't interfere with you getting sleep at night.
A guest from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 beautiful cabin! Exceeded my expectations
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals It is our pleasure to offer a peaceful relaxing place for you to enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains. We appreciate your review Lea and thank you for mentioning that we exceeded your expectations. We pride ourselves in all that we do to provide you with the best cabin experience possible.
Thom W. from Lexington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2015 This was a great stay, out of the hustle of downtown Gatlinburg (about a 20 min drive) and the cabin was very up to date with granite countertops, modern appliances, a very comfortable king bed and of course a great view. The management company was very good and followed up several times. My only problem and the reason I rated it four instead of five stars is they need to trim several trees that are growing taller than the top deck obstructing the perfect view as seen in this picture. The picture you see of the two chairs looking out isn't exactly as it looks now as there is a large, tall tree on the left side and other trees growing up. They need to trim several trees down to where it looks exactly like the picture as that can be deceiving. If you are sitting on the right chair you can see unobstructed. We would definitely come back to this cabin but would check before we make our next reservations to ensure they've trimmed down the trees.
Donald S. from Glasgow, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2015 We stayed at this cabin outside of Gatlinburg and really had a great time. The cabin was clean and everything was laid out for us when we got their. The only negative was a little too much road noise during the day. Other than that I was very pleased.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the review Donald. While this cabin is not situated right on a main highway, I am sorry to hear that you heard some traffic noise now and then. Other than that, we are glad to hear you enjoyed your cabin stay.
Bruce B. from Galloway, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2015 had a great vacation in Gatlinburg and the cabin was beautiful. Hope to come back again soon
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are happy to hear you enjoyed your cabin stay and are looking forward to coming back again! Be sure to mention you are a repeat guest and receive a 10% discount off your future stay. You could even bring some friends or family members and book a stay at one of our larger cabins or one with an indoor pool!
Christopher S. from Saint Petersburg, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We went for the Outdoors around the cabin, but what a treat it is to come back to this place. The cabin is two floors and looks like it was just built. Everything was just the way it's listed to be, dishes, hot tub, inside bath was a hot tub style, with jets and all. (came in handy on that rainy night.) all in all I really cant say enough, if you do get the place, look in the guest book, Lisa and Chris, we put down some great notes.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Lisa and Chris, we are pleased to tell you that we love repeat guests like you! For that very reason, we offer a 10% discount on any future stays you book with us! Next time, how about an upgrade to one of our luxury cabins with your very own indoor swimming pool?
Trina Y. from La Vergne, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 Everything was great. There was an issue at the end of our stay because of the septic system and I kept in touch with the company to ensure everything ended up being ok. The pictures on the website were exact and everything was clean and there were plenty of needed things to cook etc... I always use Elk Springs because I never have an issue with the quality of cabins they manage. I just hope when people see signs in the cabin and they tell you not to do something please listen. Because of another guest, it caused us to have to leave earlier than we wanted to because of the septic system.
A guest from Tylertown, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 It was great! I would recommend this cabin to anyone. We loved everything about it and would love to stay there again.
David H. from Chesam, ENG recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 This is our second time at Bear Den. As always, the facilities were lovely and the people who maintain the property were attentive and helpful. The view from the cabin is spectacular and has plenty of room for two people. It's a short drive the nearest store, and a short drive from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Couldn't complain about a thing!
A guest from Lawrenceville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2015 This beautiful property is in an excellent location, away from the crowded Gatlinburg downtown but accessible to all activities. It's in a very clean and excellent condition and customer service is exceptional. We stayed for 4 nights and would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone. The view is fantastic and we didn't want to leave both decks! Absolutely perfect stay for our family.
DJ C. from Fayetteville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 I surprised my girlfriend with weekend trip to Gatlinburg. Proposed Friday night and it was very special. She loved the cabin and we had a lovely time. I'm sure we'll be back!
Christy D. from Louisville, KY does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 Over all good, cabin was laid out a bit different then we expected and was smaller then expected. The fans in the bathrooms had a lot of dust/dirt on them and the pillows on the couch looked stained. The master bathroom was very small from what I've seen in others I've stayed in. I've stayed in the same location but different cabin before and the other one was much better and cleaner.
A guest from Waterford, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 Nice cabin, over priced. Photos of the view from the cabin were not realistic. They were taken from a much higher cabin. Made it appear as though cabin were located much higher. Disappointing.
Mike S. from Wappingers Falls, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 it was our honeymoon and everything is as advertised, the cabin and views were amazing. It was clean and above standards, my wife and I have never stayed at a place that was as nice as the Bear Den, we already miss being there and can not wait to plan another vacation to back
A guest from Williamstown, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 Very kind and patient staff. They promptly returned calls though a little frustrating when having to leave message when you are lost and need directions. Beautiful cabin. Well stocked. Beautiful view.
A guest from Daniels, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2014 Wonderful honeymoon getaway! The cabin was very clean and fully stocked. Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay in bear den!
A guest from Ft. Worth, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014 We brought our 13 yr old granddaughter with us for her 1 st mountain vacation ! She absolutely loved the cabin and the view. The cabin was great ! Lots of room and it offered so much. She loved being able to eat our breakfast in with the view and playing pool. We definitely will come back to Gaitlinburg and will stay here again!
Jason S. from Upper sandusky, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Loved the cabin was very nice. Was nice to be away from the crowds of town this was our first time staying in a cabin. The re were a few things that we thought needs some attention the bed down stairs was like laying on a sponge wasn't comfortable we slept upstairs fro two nights and there were a lot of dead bugs on the window sill over the upstairs deck doors on the window sill
Matt B. from Cincinnatti, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2014 Loved it! Great time in and out of the cabin. It was just the right amount of "remote." I appreciated the call after our first day to make sure all was well, and after that we were left to ourselves. A wonderful experience from top to bottom. Enthusiastically recommended!
Brian Y. from Ruston, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2014 We had an excellent stay at the Bear Den. We loved the cabin, the incredible views, and the feeling of being away from all the tourist trap areas so much that we rarely ventured out! Great way to relax and recharge! Would recommend the Bear Den to all!
A guest from Hinsdale, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 We stayed there on our Honeymoon and we were so pleased with the cabin! The pictures on the website are true to what it looked like in person! The views were great and it was far enough out, but not too far from all the activities in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge! We highly recommend the zipline tour at Climb Works as well, it's a minute away from the cabin!
Brian M. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 This cabin is beautiful (Bear Den), super clean and very private. Definitively exceeded my expectations by far. Would recommend to anyone.
Ron C. from Naperville, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 I surprised my wife with the cabin for our anniversary and everything was as promised. We spent 3 days and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We will definitely do again with family and friends. Be sure to read the diary that guests leave in the cabin as it helped us and we wrote many of our experiences there as well
Pamela T. from Carmel, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 Fabulous mountain view, and the sound of the creek down below was so relaxing. Everyone was very friendly, got a great recommendation for a hike with our kids at Greenbriar. It was a little windy during our visit, so we couldn't take advantage of the firepit, but it was nice to have that amenity. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfy. The kids got a kick out of the murphy bed. Would totally recommend this cabin!
A guest from Lewisburg, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 The Bear Den was our family's first Gatlinburg cabin experience. It was so much more than we had even hoped for! From the beautiful view of the mountains & cozy living room upstairs to the master suite downstairs...we loved it all!! We enjoyed the pool table & hot tub. The soft luxury linens were a nice touch as well. The cabin was very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg & so easy to find. The staff was great. They even called to check on us after we arrived to see if we needed anything. The cabin was immaculately clean! It had everything we needed. The beds honestly were some of the most comfortable we've ever slept on (& we own a furniture business so we've tried several brands of mattresses)!! We look forward to our next Smokey Mountain getaway. We would love to stay at the Bear Den again!!
A guest from Matewan, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2013 The Bear Den cabin was beautiful. Ceiling to floor, everything was wood. Professionally decorated. Bear themed accents were well placed throughout. The only small negative on the cleanliness, was the presence of beetle bugs. Otherwise the cabin was expertly and professionally presented. The property owners and management group obviously take great pride in offering guests a turn-key visit with lots of appeal. The cabin is only 12 miles out of Gatlinburg after the turn onto 321. Out of the crowds, but close enough to all the excitement. The management called upon our arrival to see if we needed anything. But everything worked as it should, so there was nothing we needed to call them to fix. Went just as a vacation should. Everything functioned properly, the residence was clean and beautiful; the visit was stress free and relaxing. Many thanks to Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals.
Randy S. from Ball Ground, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2013 Beautiful, well equipped and maintained cabin. Bed very comfortable, nice view. HVAC did not work properly the first night, called, responded within 15 minutes, resolved, very courteous, professional, set expectations as to repairs, all met. Very comfortable cabin, perfect for a couple. great experience overall. Thank you.
A guest from Bealeton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 We had a delightful week-long stay at Bear Den. It was a great retreat! Great location-close enough to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, yet far enough to feel secluded. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains, the comfort of the cabin, and the amenities available (hot tub, jacuzzi, grill, etc). We also enjoyed the nearby zip line company (Climb Works) that was in walking distance from the cabin! Our stay was wonderful-clean, secure, comfortable property.
A guest from Blissfield, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 This is the second year we have used Elk Springs Resort and again we were very pleased. The cabin had all the amenities you could want. The decor was very fitting for the name of cabin, Bears Den. The view was just breath taking. Thanks again for a beautiful vacation. The Svestka's
Benjamin T. from Norman, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2013 This cabin was perfect for our honeymoon. The view was amazing and you could not beat the feeling of being secluded while only a 10 minute drive from Gatlinburg.
Anthony A. from Plainfield, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Beautiful view! Very quiet (except for some cabin maintenance in the morning that startled us). We went home very relaxed. I did notice black mold on the upstairs shower curtain and a few safety pins laying around, but other than that it was spotless!!
A guest from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 We had a fantastic time on our honeymoon. The cabin was great with amazing views! We couldn't be happier with our experience!
Shannon G. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 Directions could have been a little more accurate, but otherwise perfect vacation. I can't wait to return to this cabin!
A guest from Deleware, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 Elk Springs resort had a wonderful cabin, it was clean and absolutely beautiful. It was clean and had a wonderful kitchen, hot tub, bed, and mountain view! The only downside is the the cabins are a little too close to each other but it didn't turn out to be too big of an issue.
A guest from Freeburg, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 Everything was great. Cabin was clean and well maintained.location was out of busy area,but just a few minutes to all attractions.
David H. from Springfield, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2013 We have no complaints. We had a perfect honeymoon at Bear Den. It couldn't have been lovelier and cozier. And we loved the swing on the porch.
A guest from Harrison, OHIO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 we wanted to get away for some relaxing and to see a few sights. By not being directly in Gatlinburg we could choose how much of the touristy stuff we wanted. Getting back to the cabin and view was always the treat of the day. After waking up to the views of course.
Mark M. from Philadelphia, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 Bear Den was a great cabin, I spent my honeymoon there for a week in early March and it could not have been more relaxing!
Kimberly W. from Louisville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 We had a relaxing time watching the snow fall, grilling on the deck and enjoying the hot tub! The cabin was beautifully decorated!
Allyson V. from Memphis, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2013 Wonderful, already looking to book again! It was so relaxing and peaceful, the cabin is gorgeous and the amenities make you never want to leave!
Donald D. from Goshen, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 Everything about our stay was beyond perfect. We have taken cruises, beach vacations, and etc. and we have never been as satisfied as we were with our vacation in the smokies with Elk Springs. Thank you! We will be back soon.
Geoffrey S. from Alexandria, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2012 Much needed escape from the stress and rush of daily life. Perfect location, incredible view, prompt response from the property manager, and a spacious, comfortable cabin made for a wonderful vacation.
Rasheed S. from Franklin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2012 The view was wonderful. My wife and I celebrated her birthday at the Bear Den cabin and it instantly became one of our favorites. Jeremy from the staff was very available and helpful. I had a slow leak in my tire and he was there to help me refill the tire before checkout. I would recommend this cabin for couples for the view, the accommodations and it's cozy size.
Steve Z. from Prue, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2012 Everything about the cabin was great. it was very clean upon arrival and had plenty of the essentials to get us by for 4 day. The only problem we had was the lady bug invasion. when we got back on the second day lady bugs were all over the back deck and were getting inside the cabin. while harmless it was a little annoying. Thankfully they had a vacumn so we could suck up the ones inside.
A guest from Paducah, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 We had a wonderful stay at Bear Den! The cabin was promptly ready upon our arrival and absoulutely spotless. The two decks overlooked amazing views of the mountains, especially beautiful this time of year! The location of this cabin was perfect given the heavy traffic this time of year. We followed the alternate route given by the resort to avoid traffic and it was a life saver. It was about 30 extra miles but worth the distance for time saved sitting in traffic. We had no issues with this cabin but did meet the owners which were on property to assist if we needed anyhing. We would highly recommend Bear Den and will definatley be coming back to this cabin!

A guest from Mint Hill, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 Everything was great with the exception of the hot tub. We had some problems with this, but they were fix within 24 hours of arriving.
Cinque R. from Chesapeake, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2012 I enjoyed my stay at Elk Springs Resorts Cabin. I would like to start off by saying that when I first walked in the cabin, it was so clean that I felt I was the first renter of this property after it being built. The cabin was everything I wanted and more.The location was just right, not too far and not too close. When I did need the property manager, he came **** near within seconds of me calling. I will be back again and am even considering getting a time share down there. Only problem that I had was that I should have taken more time because the 4 days I was there didn't give me enough time to just relax in the cabin. Thanks again. I will be back.
Robert F P. from Somerset, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2012 Exceptionally clean, beautiful and serene. The cabin and management are all FIRST rate. We look forward to visiting again sometime soon. Thanks for making our Smoky Mt/Tennessee trip a memorable one!
Keith F. from Mableton, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 We spent a week at Bear Den and loved every minute of it. One of the best vacations we've had. This cabin is great. We relaxed about as much as you can. It was so clean. Wish we could have stayed another week. The only bad part was having to leave. Will be back again!
Thomas M. from Suffolk, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 This was one of our best vacations in a long time. The cabin was very clean and outfitted with everything for relaxing. We ended up grilling out on the back deck most nights and enjoying the quiet. We have already booked again with Elk Springs for the winter time.
Wilburn P. from Chaska, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2012 As we were packing our luggage into the cabin, we were so impressed with the accomodations that we took a break to video record entering the cabin, walking through to the deck, down the spiral staircase to the bedroom...ending at the hot tub. Now I'm back at work and have played that video a dozen times for the folks I work with...We loved our stay, and will most likely return.
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2012 This is the second year we have stayed in this cabin on our vacation. Elk Springs Resort never disappoints! Beautiful cabin, beautiful location. Will definitely be back next year.

Candice M. from Richmond, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 After searching tripadvisor for the perfect place to spend a few family days after Christmas we agreed up the Bear Den! We were not disappointed. From the beautiful starry night views from the hot tub at night to the sunrise over the mountains in the morning our days and nights began and ended perfectly! A family of 4 we decided to spend some of our "present money" on a trip instead of the usual gifts at Christmas. The directions given to us lead us right to the cabin and mapquest provided accurate directions to bypass the traffic at night. The cabin was decorated completely to theme and so cute. the kitchen amenity allowed us sleep in and prepare our own breakfast, but also allowed us to make it to town before the crowds. The pool table allowed us to play team games or one on one. Overall this was an excellent choice for our holiday trip. The only negative is that we had a couple of issues, the BOSE system and the hot tub, which probably amounted to our user error, but after calling to report it, the issues were fixed by the time we got back to the cabin that evening. If you choose the Bear Den you will not be disappointed. It is another day in Bearadise!
Stephanie W. from Belton, Missouri recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2011 When we walked into the cabin, it was even better than I had hoped for. It was very clean, everything looked new, and the view was amazing. Everything about the cabin was wonderful-the hot tub, pool table, jacuzzi tub. My husband and I loved being there! We would definitely recommend it and would loved to come back!

Ronald B. from Greenville, RI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 The property was in excellent condition. View was wonderful; however, when I booked it I thought I was in Elks Spring, I was 10 miles away
A guest from Mclean, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 My Wife and I stayed in the Bear Den for our honeymoon. The cabin was the cleanest place I have ever vacationed in! The views were great and it is far enough from downtown Gatlinburg that you are "away" from it all. This was my first time in Gatlinburg, and it was a little more touristy than expected. Highly recommend the Smoky Mountain Brewery and the Little House of Pancakes! Would recommend to anyone!

Nancy F. from Irwin, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 We just returned from a trip 9/4 - 9/8/11. The cabin was absolutely beautiful and clean. We ended up spending quite a bit more time at the cabin because of the weather and didn't mind one minute of it. We enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen, drinking a glass of wine on the deck despite the rain and enjoyed the hot tub and pool table. It could not have been a more perfect vacation.
Joshua C. from Claypool, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2011 cabin was amazing, although we hurd lots of dogs barking at night that had to have lived close by other than that it was wonderful. location was good not a far drive into town but far enough that we didnt feel like we were in the city. we will vacation there again.
Sammie C. from Miami, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 OUR TRIP WAS FABULOUS!!! IT WAS EVERYTHING WE EXPECTED AND MORE. THE ONLY PROBLEM WE HAD WAS THE DIRECTIONS THAT WAS GIVEN TO US WAS A BIT OFF BUT WE CALLED THE MAIN OFFICE AND THEY STAYED ON THE PHONE WITH US UNTIL WE ARRIVED SAFELY INSIDE THE CABIN. OTHER THAN THAT WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR NEXT TRIP. OH YES WE STAYED FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK AND WE FOUND SOMETHING TO DO EVERYDAY THAT INCLUDED COMING BACK TO THE CABIN AND ENJOYING GOD'S CREATION. :) THANKS ELK SPRINGS FOR YOUR PROFESSIONAL STAFF.
Deana L. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 My family and I just got back from Gatlinburg where we stayed at the Bear Den. We absolutely LOVED IT!! I don't think we could have found any other place so beautiful with such a great view. We will definitely be back soon.
Michael P. from Shorewood, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2011 Great view, very clean, well equipped, nicely decorated cabin. Adjacent hill drop-off a little inconvenient with 3-year old, but great place for family vacation. Close to CLIMBworks too!
Clean, relaxed atmosphere, close to town and hiking, amenities very nice, view amazing, great to have washer and dryer to clean
Tammy J. from Fenton, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 hot tub twice was out, but not a big deal, the owner came down and had the fuse back up within 10 minutes. Very responsive to problems!
A guest from Greenbrier, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 This cabin was perfect for my husband and I!! Immaculate and very homey! We could have moved right in!! It is obvious the owners take a lot of pride in their cabins!!
Nancy L. from Boca Raton, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2011 The cabin was wonderful. We did not want to leave. Immaculately clean with everything we needed. It was about 20 mins drive from actual Gatlinburg proper(which I didn't realize), but the location was peaceful with beautiful views. The cabin is built into the side of a mountain, so don't expect a yard; which if you have small children you may need to consider,esp.for safety reasons. However there are plenty of places to hike nearby and plenty of other activities to keep your family occupied. We hope to return to Bear Den in the future for another longer and even more relaxing vacation.
David N. from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2011 We loved the cabin - very comfortable with beautiful views; enjoyed cooking out on the grill, playing pool and sitting in the hot tub. The cabin was well equipped. Location was great - could drive into town or avoid it. We hope to be back soon.
A guest from Carencro, Louisiana recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2011 I couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon spot! We had a blast! The cabin was beautiful with an awesome view of the mountains! We will be coming back to Bear Den!!!
A guest from Spring Hill, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2011 We were thrilled with all of the amenities that this cabin provided. The cabin was impeccably clean, everything was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. We definitely plan on visiting again!
Amelia L. from Enterprise, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 the cabin was wonderful. we are so ready to come back for another stay. hope its longer and soon. really didnt want to leave.
ronnie j. from sherwood, AR recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2011 the hot tub had a funny smell, they charge a 45 dollar fee for cleaning the tub. im a spa dealer, you should consider hot springs brand. we did not use the tub, however we were absolutely impressed with every other detail, excellent attention to detail. we plan to return asap, will pass the word
A guest from Plover, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2010 We stayed at Bear Den for 6 nights in October 2010 for our honeymoon. The cabin was amazing! I did a lot of research on cabins to stay at, and knew that Bear Den would be great, but it surpassed our expectations. We felt right at home and it was incredibly hard to leave at the end of our stay. Thank you to Elk Springs for an amazing honeymoon! I'd recommend Bear Den to anyone!
Jeff O. from Wayne, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 We were very happy with the property----it was one of the best that we have stayed in. Loved the big TV in the bedroom and we enjoyed having free wi-fi since our cell reception is spotty when we are in TN. Thanks so much for making our stay great. We will definitely be coming back and we will recommend your property to anyone that will listen!!
A guest from Akron, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2010 Lovely! We were so pleased with the beautiful views afforded by our balconies. The cabin was spotless and we loved the decor. It was great to be outside of town where it was much more relaxing and peaceful. The cabin owner was friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this cabin and rental organization to all of our family and friends for a Smoky Mountain escape!
A guest from Front Royal, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2010 The cabin was very clean and very comfortable. The view off the decks was all mountains. You could hear the nearest highway occasionally, but could not see anything man made at all, even though it was just a short drive to hundreds of attractions.
Sammy S. from Corinth, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 My family of four (including two little ones ages 3 and 4) just got home from the Bear Den. We loved it. Very clean and cozy with a beautiful view.
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2010 We had a wonderful time staying at the Bear Den. The view was incredible and the cabin is like new. The distance from town was a little farther than we expected, but it was manageable. Thanks for making our first time to Tennessee a memorable one.
A guest from Exeter, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2010 The cabin was perfect for our honeymoon. We felt at home from the moment we entered and did not want to leave. It was the perfect stress free getaway we were hoping for.
Chris S. from Warrenton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 Our stay at the Bear Den was wonderful and relaxing. It was just what we needed for a 4 night get away. We had everything we needed to enjoy our time in TN, without even leaving the cabin if we were not up to it. We hope that our next visit is during the fall so that we can enjoy the changing leaves from the back deck.
A guest from Savannah, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in June, 2010 We stayed in the Bear Den for 9 nights. First and foremost, we THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay. The cabins was unbelievably clean and stocked with everything needed. It was very cute! The mountains were beautiful. We really enjoyed the deck. The property manager was very helpful and friendly. We had a couple questions, and he answered both calls on the first try. The ONLY negative thing we can say is we were disappointed in the location. While the mountains were BEAUTIFUL, we were right upon other cabins. There were privacy blinds which made it okay, but if we were out on the deck at the same time we could hear them. So, we would have liked more privacy. Also, the road noise is pretty bad until about dark. Another draw back is new construction is being done above the cabin. We heard construction noise the whole time we were there. That is also going to cause even more lack of privacy when the cabins are finished. But, the cabin itself was incredible and the company we went through was fabulous. No hassles, and our check in and out went very smoothly. I liked having electronic access and a security system in the cabin. We didn't have to worry with keys, and we felt safe.
Mac D. from Hollywood, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2010 We had the best time ever. This was one of the best places we have ever stayed. Loved the previous guest books, helped us try out places in the area. BEar Den was very clean, and had just about everything you would need when being away from home. We have already decided to come back in 5 years for our anniversary. We would and have highly recommended this rental to friends and family. Thank you so much the Davis'. :)
Daniel L. from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2010 The cabin was great, and we had a wonderful time. When we first arrived, we were worried because it was right next to a couple of other cabins, which was not mentioned on their website. However, the design and layout of the cabins was such that it wasn't really an issue; in fact, we didn't see anyone else until 5 days or so after we got there. The cabin was very nicely decorated, and had a great view of the mountains. It was also in a great location, away from town, but easy to get to wherever we were going. Overall, we had a great time, and we're hoping to be able to go back sooN!
Patrick S. from Columbus, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2010 Wonderfully cozy place to stay. Great views from the hot tub or from the breakfast table. Felt secluded, but not too secluded as there are five units in a row. Only downside was the 15 to 20 min drive to Gatlinburg, but wouldn't trade the experience.
Karen S. from Anderson, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2010 This cabin is everything we hoped it would AWESOME view of Mt. LeConte; an extremely clean, well appointed cabin with all the extras one would expect. Even had a wine opener!! We hope to come back to stay again, soon. We even got to meet the owner; he was friendly and kind to us!
Carolyn and Kamran M. from Stoughton, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2010 We could not get the internet connection to work. It kept asking for ComCast account information...more information on how to successfully connect would be a welcome addition to your information book. Also, a hairdryer would be a great addition!

A guest from Peoria, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2010 Bear Den is a great little retreat. We were a little concerned about the cabins next door being too close, but not a problem at all. The view is gorgeous. We spent as much time as possible on the deck--ate our meals out there and relaxed with cocktails at night. The creek that runs just down the hill provides very calming background noise. The week flew by. We'll go back for sure. I can't say enough good things.
Mary B. from Rome, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2010 This cabin was perfect!! I don't thinnk that I have ever stayed anywhere that was as clean and well-maintained. Very well stocked with utensils, etc. We enjoyed so much that we just went out for dinner one evening and prepared all of our meals in the cabin. Wonderful view of the mountains. Great Bed --I would highly recommend this cabin.
Awesome Honeymoon Stay: We'll definitely stay here when we return.
Keith C. from Alpharetta, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2010 It was the perfect environment for a honeymoon because we could only relax since there was so much snow on the ground. We actually had to wait to leave the cabin everyday no sooner than about noon. We will definitely come back to Gatlinburg, make sure we stay here, and make the stay in the warmer parts of the year so we can get a better view of the mountains, and go through the national park to Cherokee.
Laura E. from Northport, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2010 The location, cabin, sites and everything else was just perfect! It wasnt right in the middle of everything but wasnt too far either. The cabin was gorgeous and will visit again.
James N. from Lowell, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2009 We highly recommend this cabin rental company to anyone. We enjoyed our stay in the cabin and while engaging in many local activities during our 3-night stay.
Nechelle P. from Baton Rouge, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in December, 2009 Bear Den and Picture Perfect were amazing. The attention to detail made our stay great and was sad to have to leave.
Tamra B. from Auchier, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in December, 2009 This Cabin is exceptional and the property owner ensured our stay was very comfortable. The location is a little far out but worth the drive as the seclusion and the views are worth it..we truly appreciated the privacy when we turned the resort drive into a snowy playland. Also, we had no problems traveling in and out with all the snow, which is a must!! This is our fourth annual Christmas trip with small children and we so appreciated the exceptional accommodations.
A guest from Staunton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2009 We loved the Bear Den, its ammenities, and remote location.

The best cabin ever!!!!!!!!!!! The view is amazing
Stosh P. from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 The bear den made our trip unforgettable!!!!!! The view is unbelievable. The back deck is where we spent most of our time when we were at the cabin. It is awesome. I will be back..... for sure.
Grisel O. from Miami Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2009 I loved every single thing about this cabin. I had the pleasure of staying in another cabin prior to this one which was bigger and had a few more amenities. i though i was going to be dissapointed when we switched to the smaller cabin because our family had left. CONTRARY .. i was taken aback by the gorgeous views decor and cleanliness of this cabin. You have a customer for life. It was a magical honeymoon and the management is absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for making us feel so at ease and happy in this paradise away from home.
