Nice cabin.....but upgrades are needed.
A guest from Cincinnati, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016 Overall, we had a great time in Gatlinburg, but our stay at Bear Cub Lodge could have been better. It appears that the owner has not put much effort into furnishing the cabin. The furniture was very dated, mattresses very uncomfortable and it appears that the kitchen was supplied from items purchased at a yard sale. The hot tub was nice, but small. Nice cabin, but it needs some attention.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Ken. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to ensure each visit is exceptional. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. We can assure you, none of our cabins are stocked with yard sale items. Each of the items stocked in our kitchens and throughout the cabin are purchased new for each individual cabin. They are regularly checked and replaced as needed. We sincerely apologize for any discomfort experienced and hope you were able to enjoy your time spent in our area in light of these issues.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 We really enjoyed our stay in the Elk Springs Resort. The location was perfect and easy to find. The fireplace outside was beautiful and the cabin was a perfect size. We will definitely be returning.
A guest from Iva, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 We had never rented a cabin before, so this was a new experience for us. It was wonderful! Our cabin was roomy and very comfortable, as well as very clean and well-maintained. Customer service checked on us to make sure everything was as it should be. We loved it. This was a family vacation and we will definitely recommend this resort to others.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Our goal is excellent customer service and a wonderful all around experience at Elk Springs Resort! We are so happy that you had a great stay. Thank you for taking time to review Bear Cub Lodge. We hope that your family will get to stay with us again in the future!
Danielle L. from Brandon, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 The cabin was everything it seems to be from the pictures. there is plenty of space for 12 people with the 4 bedrooms and 2 pullout couches(we had 11 adults in our party). It was very clean upon arrival and we were even able to check in a bit early because no one had stayed in it the night before. The only negatives I have are some light bulbs were burnt out (we pulled some from other areas to compensate), the ice maker in the fridge was not turned on (simple fix, we just did not think to check) and the grill ran out of propane in the middle of cooking my birthday dinner and it took over 1 hour for a new one to be brought. The customer service representative was less than helpful but it all got taken care of. We hiked the property to get our nature in, the cabins are quite close together (not a problem for us, but if you have noisy neighbors that can be a problem for a quite weekend getaway).All in all it was a great cabin and weekend getaway, we are already talking about going back, just got to make sure to check the propane before we start cooking!

Danelle J. from Lansing, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2016 This is our second time staying at Elks Springs Resort, and had a great time. Staying at the Bear Cub Lodge was an awesome experience. Everything matches the photos seen on the website. The check-in and check-out process was easy, and the staff is always friendly and professional! Will definitely be back next year!!
Amy M. from Georgetown, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2016 We just were looking for a 2 day getaway form work and the stresses of everyday lives. Elk Springs Resort provided this escape for us. I was a bit nervous about booking all by phone and email given I am definitely not tech savvy but,from the get go,the representative Daniel ,I think , set me at ease. The cabin was wonderful. Everything was clean and we had use of all the amenities...the hot tub, fireplaces ,pool table , arcade games, foosball table. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were accommodating. We all enjoyed our stay and our stay at Bear Cub Lodge provided us the 2-day escape we needed.
A guest from Nicholasville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 Our family has visited multiple Elk Spring Resort cabins and have never been dissatisfied. This cabin was at a great location and parking was a plus. We visit again and will recommend to family and friends.

Shirley C. from Madison, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2016 The cabin was very nice, clean and comfortable. It was conveniently located close to a small shopping area for last minute purchases. The only real concern was lack of a restroom on the main floor. The staff was very friendly and efficient.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your wonderful review, Shirley! We are happy to hear that you had a great stay with us.

Geoffrey S. from Montgomery, AL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 Our family takes an annual vacation with out of state friends and this year we decided on Gatlinburg. After looking at many cabins, we decided on Elk Springs and Bear Cub Lodge. We were called and told we could check in early, which was nice, especially with six children. Upon arrival, we found the cable to be out. I called maintenance and was told the company had been out that day, but was not sure what was going on or when it would be fixed. Then, we discovered none of the fireplaces worked, which took four different trips, and the propane tank was empty and we were grilling that night. When the children were ready for bed, we pulled back the sheets on one of the beds only to discover a blood stain on the mattress pad which could be seen through the sheets. I called the maintenance number, again, and housekeeping came the next day, but changed the wrong mattress pad and sheets. We tried to play a movie on the theatre screen, only to discover it didn't work. After two repairmen came, we were able to play a movie. During my last repair call, I was told management would be notified due to the many problems, especially the blood, we had encountered and a refund recommended. After we left, I received a telephone call from an employee, not a manager, and was informed a refund had been approved. I laughed at the amount since it was not even 10% of our bill. If we return to Gatlinburg, we will choose another resort.
Bennie P. from Madison, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 Overall our experience was great. The cabin was well kept and the rooms were in great shape. Multiple fireplaces and hot tub along with pool table were pluses. Only draw backs were that the video game and foosball table were broken and not functioning properly and there was no clear understanding of how to work the video system in the game room. Would have been nice to have cable hooked up to it with directions.
Debbie V. from Caruthersville, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2016 We had a great time such a beautiful Cabin. Staff was so nice and helpful. We brought our children and grandchildren for my son's 30th birthday!! It snowed that day and we had so much fun. We will definitely come back and would recommend the Bear Cub Lodge to anyone.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals What beautiful memories it sounds like your family made! We are glad your family was able to enjoy the snow during your stay. We would love to be a part of many vacations as wonderful as this one in the future!
Jocelyn G. from Douglasville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2015 When I first walked in, I fell in love with the place! I loved it, rooms are big it's beautiful inside.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-star review and for sharing your guest experience with us. It's easy to fall in love with our cabins. They are amazing and give you that home away from home feeling. Please come and see us again.
Darrell K. from Piedmont, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2015 This was the best Groupon purchase ever. Every thing was just as shown on the site. Very quiet. We will be return in the future.
Barbara R. from Bone Gap, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 We were very pleased with Bear Cub cabin. Very clean, perfect for our group of 10. Kitchen was well stocked, we did not need the extra things we brought.Directions were good. Location to attractions was good. We will be back! Would recommend.
A guest from Florissant, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 We truly love the cabins at Elk Springs Resort, they are very clean and spacious! There were a few minor things that would have made the cabin more enjoyable such as the theater screen showing a better picture and the projector showed a distorted picture at times. The carpet in the basement area had some small holes and the flooring in front of the refrigerator is warped. HOWEVER, those were not a big problem and we still enjoyed ourselves with all of the other amenities!
A guest from Hampton, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 We rented 4 cabins for our family reunion. I stayed in Bear Cub Lodge. It was absolutely lovely, very comfortable, with a lot of wonderful amenities.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Allean, thank you for letting us know that everything was perfect in all 4 cabins that you rented from Elk Springs Resort for your 2015 Family Reunion.

A guest from Brazil, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2015 Overall we had a good stay at this location. The features of the cabin were great with four bedrooms and three full baths. Customer service from the property managers was phenomenal!!! They call back within 30min or less with my experience. Maintenance was quick to respond for a burnt out light bulb and arrived within an hour to change the LP tank for the grill. Use caution if looking to sleep more than 8 (2/bed) as the sofa sleepers are not great. No bathroom on main level (kitchen/dinning). Well maintained property and had all the amenities we needed. It is a bit of a drive from town, but a nice quite setting. Limited mountain views but a nice cabin or forest feeling
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased to hear that your experience with our staff was phenomenal! We apologize for the sofa sleepers, they are geared more for a couple of kids to sleep on and not meant to be substituted as a bed for 2 adults. Each of our cabins feature a different layout, so I would encourage you to check out the pictures and videos on our website when booking with us again. This way, you can hand-pick the cabin that best suits the needs of your party. Just mention you are a repeat guest and you get an instant 10% discount!
A guest from Olive Branch, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 The cabin was spacious, clean and everything we needed for our stay was included with the rental. The only thing that was a bit of a bummer was that we could not use the projector to play movies from our phone. There was a DVD player so we just ended up renting redbox movies from the local grocery store. Other than this hiccup, everything was great!
Sagnelli D. from Stockbridge, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 We rented the cabin in celebration of our sons College graduation. Everything in the cabin was very extremely nice. We initially had a problem with the air but within 5 minutes of calling, Shane came to the rescue. Phenomenal customer service. We will definitely visit again!
Chelsea W. from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2015 The cabin was fantastic. Very clean and spacious.The scenery was beautiful. Me and my family had a great. We will be back next year
A guest from Dayton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 The cabin was perfect and bigger than I expected. Very clean and neat and can't say enough about the game room with our 5 boys! They were in heaven and still can't stop talking about it. Such a fun trip and loved our visits to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg!
A guest from Dyer, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2015 The home was almost exactly as we imagined it, except there was no media room with little small red couches. That didn't bother us at all. We had a great time. The house was very clean, the beds were very comfy. We bought extra blankets we didn't need. Spacious. There is no bedroom or bathroom on the first floor, which maybe hard for some elderly folks, but the staircases and steps were very wide and large. There was no mountain view, however the home was beautiful.
Joye S. from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2015 We had a great time! The foosball table, arcade and billiards table were fun to fill in time between activities. The theater was also nice, not to mention the hot tub and fireplaces! The beds were comfortable and the location to Ober Gatlinburg was perfect. Thank you!
Laurene H. from Decatur, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2015 I visited the Elks Springs Resort - Bear Cub Lodge with my wonderful husband and three of the best couples in Atlanta! We had a truly fabulous time. The resort was inviting and accommodating and our lodge had great ammenities. We were blessed with snow which made the place look like a winter wonderland. A special thanks to the maintenance staff for being very responsive and going so far as to check in with us just to make sure all our power, heat and water was working despite the stormy weather. Also, I was very grateful for the directions with traffic avoidance. They came in super handy and ensured that our vacation got off to a great start without angst from being stuff in rush hour traffic!! Can't wait for my next visit.
Ashley T. from Lowell, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2015 It was better than the pictures! The cabin was very clean, the staff was amazing and my birthday weekend was great because of this cabin. It was located close to downtown. It only took us about 5 mins to get there.
Susan S. from Downers Grove, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2014 Great experience but the recommendation for alternative route to get to town was much longer (for our guests who joined us) we took the normal route which was better by 45 minutes. Also, highly recommend supplying extra toilet paper as the inconvenience of running out in middle of night is enough to make people feel that a house rental is not worth it. Even though it is noted as just a starter supply....the extra expense would help avoid big inconvenience. The hand/body soaps were an especially nice touch and enjoyed! The maintenance response time and fixing of issues was quick and resolved issues - thank you!
A guest from Birchwood, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2014 Our family had a Wonderful Christmas Vacation at Bear Cub Lodge. Lots of space, very clean and the staff was very nice. Close to everything we wanted to do. Thank You very much for everything!
Royce M. from Suwanee, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2014 We spent Thanksgiving week here; it was our second stay at Elk Springs, our first time with this cabin. Same great Elk Springs location, spotless condition, a very professional and responsive management team. The bear-themed furnishings were cute and we cooked a lot in the kitchen, which had pretty much everything we needed. They called me the day after we arrived and asked if there were issues--and there were a couple very minor maintenance things, which they took care of within about an hour. When I called for trash pickup, they were very prompt about that as well. Things to be aware of: there is no bathroom or bedroom on the main floor. This can pose an issue for people who have trouble climbing stairs. The downstairs master bedroom was so cold I couldn't sleep in it, ended up having to share an upstairs bedroom. And although this is a nonsmoking property, there are cigarette burns on the downstairs carpet and a faint smell of smoke down there.
A guest from Nicholasville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2014 There were 4 couples overall with us & this was the perfect amount of space for us! It was very clean & the beds were super comfortable. We weren't crazy about how close each cabin was to each other, the view, or the placement of the hot tub (the water splashed out onto the other deck levels- which you had to watch for), but it was still easily enjoyable! The management at Elk Springs was great & we appreciated the quick responses with questions & phone calls checking in on us. We also had extremely early check-in which was wonderful! Overall, a great experience and cabin for a wknd getaway!!
A guest from Virginia Beach, VA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 The house was very well maintained and clean. We had a couple of minor maintenance issues that were addressed very quickly. There was a strong fish odor in the refrigerator and we were told housekeeping would be by but they never showed. The pool table wasn't level so it made it difficult to play. Our biggest problem with this house was it did not have a bathroom on the main floor so it was difficult for my 78 year old mother. This is why we would not recommend this particular house.
Kellie W. from Marietta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 My vacation to Elk Springs was a excellent getaway . The Bear Cub Lodge was a wonderful cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. I didn't want to leave when it came time to check-out. I would definitely visit again it is a vacation spot to come back to.
A guest from Dennison, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 Beyond beauiful cabin. If you're looking for a place to get a way for a while, this is it! We loved it! And there is so much to do in Gatlinburg which isn't much of a drive.
Wanda R. from Noblesville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 We had our children and grandkids meet us at the cabin. Plenty to enjoy for all ages pool table, hot tub, games. We had a wonderful time.
A guest from Houghton Lake, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in April, 2014 As our family is scattered in several states, this was a way to get everyone together. We met for two days and everyone had an excellent time. We could have used several more days. The only minor faults that we found were squeaking doors in the bed rooms and not enough lights in the kitchen.
Sheryle B. from WATERFORD, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2014 This was our first time renting a cabin for a vacation. Also our first time staying in the mountains. Our ages went from four years old to sixty six. Every one of us enjoyed our stay. We all used the hot tub at various times. The gas grill was used and each of the fireplaces! What a beautiful cabin. Having three separate decks and three levels was perfect! We will be back, even with my fear of heights!
Melissa B. from Mauldin, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2014 It was awesome!!! We didn't want to leave. The location was perfect! Food, gas, downtown etc. was so close and convenient. The only complaint/suggestion that we have is in regards to check-in/check-out time. Our check-in was at 3 and of course the cabin was not the easiest to find because GPS doesn't locate every land mark. So by the time we arrived it was 4:30 ish. Half the day is gone by now already and if this is your first time visiting (like ours) then you don't have time to do anything that Friday. Then Saturday comes and goes so fast you can't do to much that day because you have to get up so early on Sunday for check-out. As a customer you (we did) almost feel like you were cheated out of your money and a long weekend. Downtown Gatlinburg had so many shops and attractions we missed 95% of it because we had to get in bed early Saturday so we didn't over sleep on Sunday. I'm pretty sure other customers feel the same way especially those of us that don't live in Tennessee. It would be a better stay if check-out was at 12 (noon). We already checking in late so why would we have to check out so early? If we check in late then we should check out late. If we check in early then we should check out early. This is something to consider, you won't loose customers you'll gain because no one wanted to leave. Overall we really enjoyed our stay it just went by to fast but we are planning on coming back. Real soon!!! Again thanks for the stay we really enjoyed it. And we would like to send a special thanks to Misty Grant. I personally applaude her for such excellent customer service. Thanks Misty for everything!
A guest from Fairfield, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2014 We booked this cabin based on the description of the property and the amenities that were provided. On the site, it said that the cabin was suppose to have an xbox 360, hair dryer in every bathroom (3), it didn't have as many tv's as promised as well as "not" having a "master suite" nor was it clean. My daughter found a pair of slippers, empty water bottles under the bed as well as baby toys. Upon checking into the cabin, we found that the heat was not working. We called the rental place and told someone would be right out (1 1/2 hr later) He said it was fixed, however, never came in to check that it worked. We also contacted the rental place in regards to the xbox 360, tv, and hair dryer's not being in the cabin and told that they do not provide such things--and that was that. We have had a trip planned every year to gatlinburg for the super bowl. This was the most we have paid for a cabin so expected great things----we will never book again with Elk Springs. Very disappointed
Lacee B. from LaBelle, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2014 We have been to Gatlinburg many times but this was only our second time visiting Elk Springs Resort, our last being a little over a year ago (in cabin Finders Keepers). Once again we were very happy with our stay. The cabin is great and the bedrooms at Bear Cub Lodge are much bigger than typical cabin bedrooms which was a nice surprise. The bottom floor also has a theater screen which kept my 4 yr old son completely entertained for our entire visit. He actually cried when we left! The only real complaints we had was that the kitchen is poorly lit?we had to put 2 lamps in the kitchen to cook dinner because it was hard to see at night with the kitchen only having 2 small lights and the main floor/bottom floor air system could use a few more vents. In the cabins defense, we went at a VERY cold time of the year (January 5th - 9th), just in time for the polar vortex going through and we had to run the heater nonstop. The main floor stayed warm but the bottom floor was still very cold even with the heater on. We did run the fire place downstairs and that helped but we have a 10 month old baby so it was difficult keeping her away. The 2nd night we were there the temperature reached -2 so our pipes froze which also affected the heater and caused it to shut off during the night for the main and bottom floor. Luckily the top floor heater continued to work so we were able to stay warm. I called Elk Springs Resort around 9 a.m. and left a message with the desk that we were having problems and they called back within 10 mins and maintenance was there shortly after. They had us back up and running with warm air within no time. We were VERY satisfied and happy with the quick service! The temp only reached 17 that day so while we were out they came to the cabin and somehow worked their magic and got our water back on. It was quite a relief as we had multiple bottles that needed to be washed for my daughter. Overall we were very happy with our stay. Thanks!
A guest from Chattanooga, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2013 Upon arrival at the cabin, we noticed immediately that the pictures gave a false idea of the cabins location. The cabin is in no way secluded, it is surrounded by several cabins in all directions, no privacy. One of the reasons we chose this particular cabin was for the outdoor fireplace, which was broken. After several calls to the main office I was informed that they were aware of this problem 2 days prior to our stay, yet we were uninformed and were unable to enjoy this feature(very disappointed). Also, we decided to grill out our last night, only to find there was no propane in the grill and it was also very "unkept" looking. Shockingly after calling the main office, a replacement propane tank was supplied. The basement bedroom was never heated, which made our stay in that room quite freezing, even with fireplace and heat on. Overall we were disappointed with our stay with Elk Springs Resort and will not be staying here again or recommending it to friends and family. This cabin was quite costly to have so many problems and no privacy.
Jeremy S. from Charleston, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2013 Very nice property. We had a great time. Very clean. Wish the cabins were not so close together. I would recommend and stay again.
It was the best family vacation we have every done
A guest from Fort Walton Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in November, 2013 We enjoyed everything thing about the cabin and it snowed while we were there over thanksgiving it was the icing in the cake my grandchildren had never seen snow it was great. . We will be booking again your next year this time we are going to try Christmas
David D. from Powder Springs, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2013 The Cabins Are Way To Close,, We Could Hear The Music And Talking From Everyone Around Us. ThePictures Make It Look More Divided But I'm Sure That Was By Design. From Any Point Outside You Could See No Less Than Five Cabins,, Which Means They Could See You. Because Of That The Outside Fireplace And Hot Tube Went Unused
Erica S. from Rock Hill, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2013 This cabin was beautiful and cozy and very luxurious! ! We had four Couples and had plenty of room. The men enjoed the game room playing pool while the women cooked and hung out in the kitchen the first night. We all ate at the dining table for each meal. The fireplaces put out so much heat we had to cut them off at times!!! However was great lying in front of the fireplace while watching a movie on the big screen. Down stairs 3rd level bedroom was cooler than the rest of the cabin..once the timer on the fireplace cut off it became cold for my fiance and I..You may want to think about other heating alternatives for down stairs..The 2nd night we hung out downtown and rode the skylift and ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co which was fantastic! ! Overall we enjoyed our stay but did not like the idea of checkout time being at 10am...12 maybe?? I would recommend this cabin to anyone!!!
Jeff N. from Georgetown, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 We stayed at Bear Cub Lodge and the pictures on the site were good but the cabin exceeded our expectations. The cabin was spotless, everything from the hot tub to the video game machine to the wi-fi worked with no issues. Management was very responsive and easy to work with - we got in our cabin 3 hours early on check-in day with no issues. We'll only consider Elk Springs for our next Gatlinburg stay.
Michael T. from Mason, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Fantastic family retreat, everything was perfect. When not in town, you can relax and enjoy all the pleasures of home right at your cabin.
Thomas C. from Westville, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 Had a great time. Was dissapointed that there was no lighting in the kitchen area. While using the hot tub, it kept tripping the breaker. We had reset the breaker twice before maintenance showed up. We would like to return next Sept., though trying a different cabin.
A guest from Mount olive, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Family thoroughly enjoyed this property. Can't wait to do it again! Wish the theater screen was configured for television also.
A guest from Kingsville, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 This is the 3rd time we've stayed with Elk Springs. We've been very happy with the company overall, however this time we were disappointed in a few things. First, the furniture in the cabin was different than the pictures. Downstairs bedroom was VERY small. Nice to have a king size bed, but difficult to move around in it. Also, when we got there, the floors were very dirty. Our feet were black from walking around in it a few hours. That being said, we called and maintenance was there within a half hour to fix the problem, which was great.But overall, a great company and good property.
A guest from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 Our stay at Bear Cub Lodge was just as advertised. It was a great location.The check in and check out were very efficient. There were no surprises.
A guest from Dalvell, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 THE CABIN WAS BEAUTIFUL!! IT WAS VERY CLEAN AND IN A SECLUDED LOCATION BUT NOT FAR FROM ATTRACTIONS! THE CABIN CAME EQUIPT WITH EVERYTHING WE NEEDED! WE WILL DEF BE BACK AGAIN!
Keith C. from Appex, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2013 This makes the 3rd time that I have stayed in your resort. The first 2 times were with some of my biker friends(4 day trip with the guys). This time I wanted to show my family what I enjoy so much about the area. They had a wonderful time and were captivated by the beauty. They were a little nervous about the roads, but that is to be expected in the mountains considering my extended family is from the flat coastal areas of N.C.. I am in the process of attempting to get some of my biker brotheren to do our annual M109 riders meet there. The biggest concern would be enough level parking for the bikers. I am sure some will stay there and we will be calling to make reservation probably around the end of December or early January. Either way, I will be seeing you again soon.
Kristin P. from Huntley, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2013 We LOVE Elk Springs Resort. This is our 2nd stay. Bear Cub Lodge was great. My kids ages 19,14,11,7 loved the pool table, arcade game and foosball table. As well as the outdoor fireplace and rocking chairs. Mom and Dad liked that we were close to store, entrance to the mountians and the Art and Craft district. Downside - NO MOUNTAIN VIEWS - very wooded. Also no bathroom on main floor. Excellent vacation I am sure we will go back agian.

Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 Everyone was pleased with the accomadations, wecouldn't have chosen a better place, I really enjoyed the hot tub, after walking so much, seeing the sights. I would recommend your place to anyone who is planning a trip to Gatlinburg.
A guest from Mason, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 It was our first vacation to Gatlinburg. We were very impressed by the online photos and had great expectations, so were overly thrilled when we reached the location, to find the Bear Cub Lodge, far exceeded our expectations. The location of the cabin from the attractions and the stores, were ideal for a family vacation. We will go back again the next time and would also recommend the Bear Cub Lodge to everyone.
Barbara D. from Arlington, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 We had a reunion with family in two other cabins, loved the game rooms for the kids, kitchen facilities were top notch. Also loved the proximity of the Appalachian Trail at Clingman's Gap! Wonderful weekend!
A guest from Pacific, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 We were very surprised and very relieved to find the cabin was as great as the pictures. Everything about it screamed mountain retreat- from the décor to the property. Just wish a little more privacy on the hot tub side. Thanks for all the great ambiance - fireplace, etc and the outdoors with the rockers and great deck views.
Joan B. from Amelia, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 Very close to all the activities no traffic which was a plus. Would go back to this particular place in a heart beat.
Kalee A. from Seymour, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2013 I've rented from Elk Springs Resort previously and definitely had to use them again for out Family vacation. We had 8 adults and 2 children in our cabin which was Bear Cub Lodge(formerly Legendary Luxury)Everyone was very happy with our stay, from the location to the layout of the cabin. Our only small complaint was there was no kitchen level bathroom, you had to go upstairs or down to use the bath. Other than that we had a awesome stay. If you haven't rented from Elk Springs Resort you should on your next Smokey Mountain Trip!
A guest from Opelika, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 beauty, quality, amenities, comfort, style, security and peacefulness. Pure pleasure. Extreme satisfaction. Will be returning and would highly recommend Bear Cub Lodge. Thank you Elk Springs Resort.
Eric P. from Goldsboro, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2013 My family and I enjoyed our stay at Bear Cub Lodge. The cabin was beautiful and the location was great. I am never disappointed with Elk Springs Resort cabins, you provide a luxury vacation at reasonable prices. I will continue to book my trips through your company and have recommended to friends and family.
Rebecca M. from Capon Bridge, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2013 We had a great week in Gatlinburg and this cabin was perfect for our group of 12!! It was very spacious and clean. Our hot tub was not working and within 2 minutes of me calling there was a man there to check it out! Very prompt! Also, our dryer belt broke and we were stuck with two loads of wet laundry. The maintenance man offered to take the two loads of laundry and he dried them for us that day! When we came back that evening there was both loads of our laundry folded neatly on our table!! I was shocked and amazed! That is some awesome customer service!! Thanks so much! You went ABOVE and BEYOND!!
Nicole H. from Pickerington, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2013 The properties are amazing! The amenities are amazing! We had 4 adults and 4 kids and go had plenty of room. These cabins are huge and extremely nice. The location isin the heart of the artists loop with wonderful shopping and close places to eat. Our only concerns was our code was not programmed and when we arrived at 9:30pm, it was scary at first when we could not get a hold of someone. Another issue is the beds were not accurate in the description. One if the beds was a full and suppose to be a queen. Overall, we did ave an amazing experience.
A guest from Wake Forest, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 We enjoyed our stay even though the weather was not the best. The cabin had plenty of space and entertainment capabilities that it made for a great bachelor party experience. I would definitely comeback again in the future.
Mark S. from Dayton, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2013 The cabin was one of the nicest we have stayed in. I was really disappointed with the size of tv's. My computer monitor at home is larger than the tv's in bedroom. The tub in lower level did not have slip strips in it making it dicey for a disabled veteran. The kitchen was great and fully loaded. The electronic game did not completely work correctly. The main reason I would not recommend this cabin was that the pictures showed were misleading and not representative of what was really there.
A guest from Greenville, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2013 We enjoyed a wonderful weekend with 2 other couples. Six foot movie screen, pool table, arcade machine, foosball table, gas fireplaces, and spacious accommodations were better than expected. Loved every minute. Will be returning.
Michelle S. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2013 I invited 6 friends on this ski trip for my birthday, only 2 of them had taken the time to view the resort's website, so 4 of them had no idea how beautiful the cabin would be. The pictures online were great, but actually being in the space, chatting around the fire, and waking up to beautiful views really made the difference. We were planning our next trip before this one was over! This time, we intend to spend more time in the cabin and maximize the space. We really appreciate the hospitality and courteous employees. They welcomed us during the phone call which made us feel at home, and called to check-in and make sure had everything we needed the following day. The name ?Legendary Luxury? is fitting for the cabin, in fact, it?s fitting for our trip as a whole. Thanks, Again and Again. -MS
Beth B. from Huntsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2013 I recently rented this cabin for a group of friends, my husband and myself for my husband 30th birthday and I loved it! It couldn't have been better, the location was great (I am completely terrified of mountain roads and this cabin was not too far up) and the place was perfect! Had everything we needed to cook and to be able to enjoy our stay! I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a nice place to stay!
Joy H. from Dublin, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 My family really enjoyed the stay...we loved the cabin and all the activities. Wished we could have stayed longer! I have quadruplets that are almost 18 years old plus 2 other teens...all enjoyed playing pool, the arcade games and the hot tub. Look forward to returning next year, during college breaks, etc.!!
Casie D. from Gastonia, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 We had a blast! The cabin was beautiful and over exceeded our expectations. We would recommend this property to anyone!
A guest from Nashville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 Absolutely amazing! The cabin looked incredible online but was even better once we stepped foot in the door. This cabin was extremely clean, organized and overall just a comfortable vibe.I've stayed at other cabins through different rental companies around Gatlinburg so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of amenities like kitchen equipment, pots & pans, utensils, etc. This cabin was STOCKED! We ended up bringing a lot of items from home, not sure what would actually be there waiting for us. Needless to say, we didn't use any of our kitchen supplies. Well, except for the kitchen knives. We needed those because the ones in the cabin were pretty dull, but that's a personal preference. Beds were extremely comfortable, linens were very clean and the bathrooms were in great condition. No shortage of hot water, that's for sure. Looking forward to returning to the Legendary Luxury in the near future and I highly recommend staying here or at any of the Elk Springs properties as I'm sure they're all just as nice as the one we had this weekend.
A guest from Westerville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 Great family vacation in the Smokies. We were there for a whole week and found plenty to do.The kitchenware was a bit skimpy, but manageable.Thought it strange that there were 12 wine glasses, but no cork screw! There is no mountain view.The management was great in responding to any problems.In the directons to the cabin it was strongly recommended that we take a very long route around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to avoid the heavy traffic. In our experience this proved to be unnecessary and added another 30 minutes to our trip coming from the North. We returned on the more direct route.
A guest from Alpharatta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 Great place for family vacation and reunion. Kids love the projection screen movie theater, pool table and various video games. Definitely recommend this property for anyone interested in vacation home rental.
Mark S. from West Mansfield, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in June, 2012 We had a wonderful time on Legedary Luxury! Very spacious and particularly liked the fact that when using the game/theater room downstairs, it was still very quiet upstairs for the little ones to sleep.
A guest from Shelbyville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2012 The cabin was very nice. A few housecleaning issues..Dirty towels on lower level, Doritos in pull out couch on lower level, and deck on lower level had trash on it. Had plumbing issue on lower level but maintenance was very quick to solve the issue. I thought that the description was a little mis-leading. It showed a big screen tv on lower level but none was there only the theater screen. And also led to believe that king room on second level had own bath but had to share with other bedroom. In all fairness, the cabin was very nice and would come back to Elk Springs on next visit.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Lamar, really sorry for the inconvenience and glad we could solve it so quickly for you as we do have housekeeping and maintenance on site. Glad you still enjoyed the rest of your trip with no other interruptions!
A guest from Sumner, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2012 Our stay at Elk Springs Resort Cabins was a wonderful experience. They were very professional and helpful in getting our reservations set. Check in and check out was very easy. The cabin was beautiful and very cozy. I would highly recommend them to anyone. We would definately use them again.
Carol K. from Twin Lakes, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2012 It was beautiful. We had so much room. The beds were very comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub, the games and the tv's., and the large screen for movies was over the top. Wonderful kitchen with everything we needed. Thank you.
Nick S. from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2012 We really have nothing but great things to say about Elk Springs Resort and the staff there. We had 2 minor issues that needed maintenance staff help and they were very quick to come and fix the issue. The cabin was very well cared for and also very clean. I would definitely come back and stay again and recommend Elk Springs to anyone that is looking for a great place to stay in Gatlinburg, TN.
A guest from Cordova, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2012 Just returned from a weekend at Bear Cub Lodge/ Legendary Luxury. The cabin was great and met all our expectations. We were also very pleasantly surprised by many of the new upgrades. We can't wait to come back and stay with Elk Springs again!!!
Nichole F. from Hamilton, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2012 We had a great time at the cabin. It was very nice and for the price you can't beat it. This is our 2nd time at elk springs and both cabins were wonderful. Can't wait till the next time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thanks again for the review. Our return customers receive a 10% discount. Come back soon.
A guest from Paris, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2012 We stayed for four days at Elk Springs resort and enjoyed every minute of it. We arrived to find the cabin very clean and comfortable. Every room had a warm friendly feel to it. The kitchen was very functional and had up to date appliances. Each bedroom was decorated with taste and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and fresh. After a day of sightseeing or a night out downtown it was great to come back to the cabin turn the fire on and relax. We would recommend this resort to anyone. And by the way some cabins are pet friendly !
Dave D. from Mainville, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2011 Great property, clean, great location. Close enough (w/in 15 min) to enjoy all the attractions yet far enough to provide "the escape" you need. As part of a development we were initially hesitant because we wanted a place that offered some seclusion. You'll find the cabin towards the back of the resort and although you have neigbors you'll see that you're not on top of each other and can enjoy your 3 decks in relative privacy. Relax at night in front of the fireplace on the main deck (and don't forget the marshmellows!). The cabin is nestled within the tree's so don't expect a panoramic view of the Smokies (not important to us but I could see how others may want). Open floorplan with lots of room. Everything (fireplaces, hot tub, wifi, virtual check-in process, etc..) worked flawlessly. Would definitely return and recommend...
A guest from Gallatin, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the Bear Cub Lodge was very clean and comfortable and had very nice surroundings.
A guest from Warren, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in October, 2011 No main floor bathroom. TV Screen in upstairs badly damaged. Carpet and flooring dirty--appeared clean, but socks got filthy when walking on either. Belongings from other tenants left under the beds. Thermostat not working properly. Dryer never heated up properly. Have stayed at various homes in the Elk Springs Resort and have always been very satisfied. This home was a little dissapointing.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Cindy, we replaced the damaged upstairs TV with the flat screen in the lower level. We also added a 9 foot theater screen to the lower level and high definition theater system with surround sound. The lower level has been insulated and the thermostat has been fixed. all other items have been addressed. Please contact us during your stay if you have issues as we have housekeeping and maintenance on site and can address your issues quickly.
A guest from Hartford, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2011 We had a very pleasant visit , the cabin was very clean and well taken care of . We would love to come back and stay again ! Only problem we had was we had mom who had problems with stairs and bathrooms are upstairs or down stairs , no bathrooms on main floor .
Susan F. from Morrow, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 I loved Elk Springs Resorts. The reservation staff was so helpful. The cabin's were beautiful, better than I expected and the location was great. I would come back in a heartbeat.
Kimberly L. from Orland Park, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 The house was everything and more that we had hoped for. It was spacious and we found the location to be quiet and relaxing. Our town time back at the house was a great part of our vacation.
A guest from Newark, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2011 The only thing we missed was deck furniture. Beautiful decks off the sleeping areas, but nowhere to sit! We were lucky to have some sports chairs left in the van that we were able to move onto the decks during our stay. The appointments were beautiful. What a wonderful stay. If you are looking for sweeping panoramic views, this is not your choice. However, if you are looking for a beautiful setting, on excellent roads, in supremely convenient location...you won't go wrong.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Jerry! We do have replacement rockers for the ones that were missing. sorry for the inconvenience and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
This cabin was awsome and I would stay there again.
A guest from Chagrin Falls, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 Overall it was a great place to stay and I really enjoyed myself.The beds were a little too hard could be more comfortable.
Randy G. from Simpsonville, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2011 The cabin was a nice design and we loved the space. Everything worked very well. Found issue with downstairs cleaning with some trash near sofa (including a cigarette but). Only comment about whole facility is that they have built these cabins very close to each other and you do have noise coming from other cabins and more foot and car traffic on roads. Suggestion for upgrade to the facility would be adding a swimming pool and fishing pond.
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 We really enjoyed our stay in Bear Cub Lodge. We had 9 people in our party and had no problem with capacity, etc. Only downside was no bathroom on the main floor. Other than that, everything was perfect and we would definitely stay here again.
Stacy K. from Wheeling, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2011 The price of the cabin caught our attention originally. It was very affordable for what appeared to be a high quality cabin. Moreover, we were traveling as four couples and most of the other cabins we looked at had a kids room with bunkbeds, etc. This was the perfect cabin for our couples getaway. Each couple did not have their own restroom and three of the rooms were somewhat close to one another, but it didnt bother us.The three decks are great, and all of the fireplaces were great. They were not very fake looking like we had expected.We would love to make this cabin an annual trip!
Erin C. from Chagrin Falls, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2011 Our stay at Bear Cub Lodge was perfect. We spent the week hiking with our four kids in the smokies and Elk Lodge Resort was the perfect place to call home while we were there. The Arts & Crafts Community is wonderful , and was a welcome escape from the business of Gatlinburg. We never did make it ot find the swimming pool, but we were so busy in the national park , we didn't need it. Not only would we stay here again, but we can't wait to come back. The only thing I could say needed improvement- a few of the beds in our cabin were squeaky. Slight annoyance, but not enought to keep this from being a perfect 5 stars for us.
A guest from Hendersonville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 Overall the property was very clean. However, before getting in the hot tub, I pulled a clog of hair and what looked like small chunks of paper towels from the circulation vent/drain. Additionally, there was a head of standing foam even after the jets were off. I have a hot tub and clean water does not produce standing foam. I did not like having a less than clean hot tub, particularly when you charge a hot tub cleaning fee. If my girlfriend had any idea the hot tub was not clean, she would have gone ballistic!
Donie N. from North Augusta, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2011 The spacious, beautiful lodge we stayed in was so great that we only left once during our stay. The fireplaces, hot tub, pool table and DVD players were all kept very busy and normal stressful busy life was put on hold for 4 days. We were able to enjoy God's beauty with no timetable and no stress. A perfect vacation!
Beautiful Cabin with all the amenities and uninvited guests!
Brad B. from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2011 The cabin was very affordable and had all the amenities you could ask for, the view was pretty good, only wish the cabins were not so close to each other. The cabin was decorated beautifully fit the ?Bear Cub? theme. Only negative issue we had was we were awakened each night by squirrels / rats (something) in the attic that showed up each night around midnight, we complained to the management they tried to address but to no avail. If this problem is resolved we would defiantly return.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We've had our pest control people on the property and the issue was resolved. These occurences are rare and sometimes can take a day or two to resolve. We apologize that this occured and we were not able to fully resolve it within 24 hours.
A guest from Meadowview, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2011 This cabin was very pleasing. Only problem was towels/wash cloths. This cabin slept eight but only had enough towels for one shower per person. This cabin also had three floor and I slept on the first floor. Never could get the first floor warm. Taking a shower in the bathroom was like taking a shower outside. The fireplace down stairs worked, but didn't warm the whole floor. As for the location, it was far away enough from town but close enough for comfort. It snowed both days of our stay and the travel in and out were very dangerous. Our friends stayed at a resort down the road from us and their resort salted the roads for them. One other concern was the 800# and local # given for after hours help. Called both several times with no answer. Tried to leave message on local# but mail box was full.
