A guest from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2016 We were worried the fires would have effected our stay, but our cabin was so great we didn't leave. The only drawback to the cabin was the circulation. If you were upstairs, and the downstairs fireplace was on you better have prepared to sweat.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Sorry you were having a problem with the heat rising upstairs making it a little too toasty for you. The only thing that can be done is to make sure the ceiling fans are on to keep the air continually moving. We are pleased to hear that overall, you had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year with Elk Springs Resort.
A guest from Geismar, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016 Bearfoot Memories was the perfect cabin for our family of 6. The game loft was great for the kids, and the two master suites were perfect. The view from this cabin is absolutely breathtaking. The sun rises over the peaks that face the family room windows, so the morning views are especially amazing. The location is great, and very convenient to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and other area attractions. Also I cannot say enough about the Elk Springs staff. To say they were helpful, courteous, and professional would be an understatement. They were prompt with the check-in time and even followed up with a phone call to make sure everything was ok with our cabin and check-in. Would absolutely rent this cabin again, and would definitely rent from Elk Springs again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review, Cory! We were honored to have you as our guest. We take pride in making you feel at home from the moment you first walk through the door. We are here to ensure you are taken care of every step of the way. We hope you will make plans to come back and stay with us often. Hurry back, the mountains are calling!
A guest from Independence, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 This cabin was beautiful and impeccably clean. The view was unbeatable and I love that it's at the end of its very own private lane. Very peaceful and secluded. I highly recommend this cabin. No complaints!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We really appreciate your review! Thank you so much for staying with us at Elk Springs Resort. We look forward to seeing you again!
A guest from Avon Lake, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2016 Property description accurate. Cabin clean. Good customer service. I would recommend this property to a friend. Visited Cades Cove, Elkmont ghost town, Little River. Wonderful relaxing time. Great views of Smokey Mountains from porch. Nice people.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you Kelly for your review. We strive to make every guest feel right at home when they arrive to Elk Springs Resort. We do hope that you make plans to come stay with us again in the future.
A guest from Riverdale, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2016 Wonderful
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review, Vertis! We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will consider staying with us again during your next visit to Gatlinburg.
Gary A. from Liberty Twp, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in October, 2016 Overall...very nice. Cabin was well appointed and very clean. We especially enjoyed the spectacular view! The upstairs area was very roomy...plenty of room to shoot pool without need of a short cue stick. My personal favorite was the upstairs nook with large picture window, quiet and restful.We will definitely return if God allows. If I had to pick a negative it would be the couch and love seat. They are nice to look at but for a septuagenarian they are very uncomfortable...almost impossible to get up once you set down! There were a couple of other items but not really worth mentioning here. We especially enjoyed Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal. They came to visit the large picture windows at least twice a day to peck out their 'hellos' on the window sills! LolGreat cabin with an even greater view. We loved our stay and highly recommend to others visitors.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your kind review, Gary! It was an honor to have you as our guest. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your time spent at Bearfoot Memories. We hope you will consider making Elk Springs Resort part of a new tradition when visiting our beautiful Great Smoky Mountain. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays. Hurry back, new memories are waiting to be made!
A guest from Canal Winchester, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2016 We loved the cabin except for one thing....the shower. It needs a flexible shower head because the shower is so small. it really needs changed. I don't know that I would stay again unless something is changed to make it better. Other than that the cabin was absolutely perfect. It was clean and well stocked with dishes. The tvs were nice and the kids absolutely loved the pool table.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Judy. We appreciate your feedback as it helps us to improve the quality of each stay. We have shared your suggestion with the appropriate department, thank you. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience experienced due to the shower head. We hope you will consider staying with us again during your next visit to Gatlinburg. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays.
A guest from Cloverdale, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2016 The cabin was excellent! Everything was in good working condition and had no issues to speak of other than when we got there the trash can in one of the bathrooms had not been emptied of dirty diapers from the previous vacationers! It was very quiet and peaceful there, would definitely come back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your wonderful review, Aaron! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry to hear that the trash was overlooked. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we corrected the issue. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will make plans to stay with us again!
Mark G. from Malvern, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2016 Great experience at Bearfoot Memories. The cabin was everything it was advertised to be. While we didn't spend a great deal of time in the cabin, it was a great place to rest, either after long hikes in the Smoky Mountains, or after a day of antiquing in the surrounding areas. The view from the front porch was fantastic!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with us, Mark! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your visit. We hope you will consider making Elk Springs Resort part of a new tradition when visiting Gatlinburg. Hurry back, the Smoky Mountains are calling!
Lawrence D. from Riverview, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2016 We loved our stay at this lodge. It was a very nice well kept lodge. A few light bulbs were out and the Direct T.V. didn't work. The guy came out got it working and the next day it was out again. No worries we stayed busy outside the cabin with activities like 4 wheeling, hiking, and tours. Would love to come back and spend a week day hiking the many trails in the Smokey's.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are delighted you had an exceptional stay, Lawrence! We are fortunate to be able to share our area with our guests. There are so many places and activities to enjoy, each trip is sure to be a new adventure. We are sorry to hear the Direct TV went back out the next day, we were not aware. We have reported this to our maintenance team so it can be corrected. Please do not hesitate to contact us if any item in the cabin is not working properly. We are always happy to send a technician out to the cabin to address the issue. If you find that the issue is not resolved, please let us know as we will work diligently until the issue is resolved. Your satisfaction is our primary goal. We are happy to hear you were able to enjoy so many activities during your visit. We hope you will make plans to come back and stay with us again. Hurry back, new memories are waiting to be made!
Best foot memories cabin is an amazing place for the family.
Rachael L. from Roswell, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2016 My family and I had an amazing stay at th bear foot memories cabin. It has every thing we wanted great living room with kitchen n view. The view was amazing, this is our 3rd visit to Gatlinburg but our first stay at this cabin which was amazing. Will definitely recommend to everyone . The cabin was very clean n neat.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your wonderful review, Rachael! We are pleased to hear you and your family had such a great time.

A guest from Medina, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2016 We all travel often and stay at 5 star condos/cabins. We are accustomed to more amenities and that would be my only complaint. Seriously spend another $5 to add 2 rolls of toilet paper to each bathroom, decent size soap to sink, tub and shower, 2 rolls of paper towels, enough towels so laundry isn't required on vacation. A few amenities go a long way.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Dana. We appreciate your input as it helps us to ensure that each stay is exceptional. Thank you for your suggestions! We have forwarded these suggestions on to our housekeeping supervisor to see if these additional items may be added in the future. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will consider staying with us again during your next trip to Gatlinburg.
Lindsey G. from Fayetteville, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2016 My husband and I stayed at Bearfoot Memories for 6 nights for our honeymoon. It was our first time vacationing in Gatlinburg and this cabin made it all the more enjoyable. The location is perfect! Not too far from downtown Gatlinburg, the grocery stores, local restaurants, or even Pigeon Forge. And the view...the pictures do not do it justice! Waking up with the rising sun every morning might have been my favorite part. The neighbors are not too far away, but still blocked by the surrounding trees giving you that secluded feel you want when renting a cabin. The inside was clean and had just about everything one could want for, especially on a vacation. The easy check in and check out process makes it perfect for those who have to travel a ways to get there. The staff is always pleasant, friendly, and helpful in making sure everything is perfect for you and your stay. I can't say enough good things about the cabin, or the staff of Elk Springs Resort except my husband and I will definitely be back!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful celebration, Lindsey. Congratulations! We are delighted to hear your stay was exceptional. We certainly agree, Bearfoot Memories offers the perfect location to make it feel as if you have entered your own personal paradise. We enjoyed having you as our guest and hope you will consider making Elk Springs Resort part of your anniversary plans for many years to come. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will enjoy 10% off all future stays. Hurry back, new memories are waiting to be made!
A guest from Columbus, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2016 Amazing views, perfect location, clean and comfortable cabin. Exactly as pictured.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review, Abigail! We are thrilled to hear you and your family enjoyed your visit. We certainly agree, Bearfoot Memories is the perfect cabin to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life. We hope you will come back and stay with us again soon!
A guest from Inverness, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2016 Beautiful cabin with breathtaking mountain views. Only complaint was missing dryer which management failed to address.
Nancy S. from Maurepas, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in May, 2016 I have never been to the smokey mountains after a lot of research I decided to go with Elk Springs and the cabin was Bearfoot Memories. I was so amazed at the cabin, the privacy, and the view. It was absolutely the best. The location is wonderful and you are close to the grocery store and downtown gatlinburg. Everyone was so nice and helpful. I can't wait to go back and I will definitely be using Elk Springs again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals How exciting! We are happy to hear your first visit to our area was such a success. We specialize in providing exceptional cabins with top-notch modern amenities. With so many cabins to choose from, we are sure to make each visit with us a new adventure.

Frances B. from Marissa, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 Everything was as described and the view was amazing. The whole house was clean and beautifully decorated as well as had everything we needed.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your 5-Star review, Frances! We are happy to hear Bearfoot Memories exceeded your expectations. We hope you will take the opportunity to come back and visit with us as often as you can.
Darla D. from Columbus, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2016 No fireplace after may 1? It was very chilly,and so quite disappointed.I didn't see that mentioned anywhere before we arrived.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the view at Bearfoot Memories. The gas fireplaces are seasonal, they are only operational during the colder months. They put too much of a strain on the air conditioning systems in the warmer months. We can certainly understand your disappointment. We do specify that the gas fireplaces are not in operation from April through September in the contract. Since these are sent to each of our guests, we feel it is the best way to ensure that everyone is aware of this policy. We sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding.
Elissa R. from Buchanan, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 The cabin was very easy to find, and the cabin was ready early so we were able to get in before the actual check-in time. The cabin was beautiful and clean. All of the pictures of the views of the mountains are accurate; it's gorgeous. Every morning we would drink our coffee in the hot tub while looking at the beautiful view. The day after we arrived an Elk Springs staff member called us to make sure we had everything we needed. The location was great; about a 15 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg. The beds, jacuzzi tubs, pool table, fireplaces, TVs, and everything else about the cabin made us never want to go home! We are booking the same cabin for next year; we love this place!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals The pictures could never truly reflect the view from this cabin, it is absolutely breathtaking. We are happy to hear that so many wonderful memories were made during your stay. It sounds like you have found the perfect cabin! Beautiful views, great location, and top-notch amenities; this cabin has everything you could want and more! We hope to become part on a new annual tradition that will last for many years to come. Your next Smoky Mountain adventure awaits you!
Cody R. from Harrod, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 We had a wonderful time on our vacation! In fact, the cabin was so nice that we found ourselves staying there in the evenings, cooking and relaxing, instead of going out. It was a great place to stay.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We truly enjoy hearing such a wonderful review! Thank you for letting us be a part of a great get-away. Please keep in mind, as a returning guest you will receive 10% off all future stays.
A guest from Macon, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2016 The Cabin was very nice and has been well kept up. But the real treasure he is the view!! The view from the (now covered) deck is absolutely priceless. Just as the pictures show you look out into a clearing and see the mountains in the distance, super cool. The drive to get to the Cabin from the main road was a little scary at times but after the first day it was not too bad. The hot tub was also a nice touch, perfectly placed for the amazing mountain views. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! Thanks so much for taking the time to review Elk Springs Resort. We hope you will return to stay again in the near future!
David B. from Jacksonville, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2016 My new wife and I selected this cabin for our special occasion out of multiple cabin choices based on the pictures online. THIS CABIN DID NOT DISSAPPOINT! We had our wedding in Pigeon Forge and wanted a somewhat private cabin for our honeymoon. The views were amazing, the privacy was exactly what we wanted. (It is not in the resort) The wall of windows offered views 24/7. Far enough out to not be in the traffic of downtown and close enough to get there easily. I will definitely be back to this cabin soon. My new "HOME AWAY FROM HOME".
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thanks for this review! We are elated that you have chosen us as your "home away from home". We hope to see you again! Have you made your plans yet for your 2017 vacation? We look forward to hearing from you!
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2016 I stayed at Bearfoot Memories for two nights in February. For the most part, the pictures looked just like the cabin. It was beautiful, clean, close to downtown and the view was breathtaking. The property manager was very attentive, although, I had no issues or complaints. Downtown Gatlinburg was right down the road. It was a very interesting town. I would suggest the moonshine tasting and snow tubing. I would probably want to come back when the weather's warmer to see everything in bloom. I would definitely recommend Bearfoot Memories.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for the nice 5-star review, Claudia! We are pleased that you enjoyed some of the wintertime activities and local attractions, as well as your cabin stay. I would suggest a fall trip might be the ideal time to come and enjoy the picturesque views and beautiful colors of the Great Smoky Mountains when planning your return trip. However, we think any time of year is a great time to be in the mountains!
A guest from Port Colburn, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in January, 2016 Probably the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. The cabin was extraordinary...extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the deck was better than expected. I've already recommended this cabin to many friends.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We love to hear such wonderful reviews! We are happy to hear we were able to exceed your expectations. The views from Bearfoot Memories are absolutely breathtaking. We hope to become your new home away from home for future visits to Gatlinburg.
Jorge C. from Naples, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2015 This was our first time staying in a cabin up North (we're from Florida) and we loved it. The cabin had amazing mountain views, as described. It was updated, clean, modern. We had no issues at all. The Elk Springs Resort staff was always very nice and courteous and we did speak on the phone. Loved our family vacation and looking forward on visiting again.
A guest from San Antonio, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 Like home. Loved the view and bed was nice.

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed a nice relaxing cabin getaway as well as some amazing views.

A guest from Buckner, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 The cabin was very nice with an amazing view! Getting to the cabin was a challenge (22 hair pin curves) but it was so worth it! Doing business with Elk Springs Resort was awesome. Everything they said they would do...they did. Had one issue with the door code but contacted the resort and it was resolved within 10 minutes. I would definitely stay at this cabin or others managed by Elk Springs Resort again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review Aubrey. The only way to reach this cabin, to take advantage of the amazing views, is by driving up the mountain. Unfortunately, this also involves some sharp curves along the way. The good news is, we haven't lost a guest yet! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the cabin and we look forward to your return visit.
A guest from Brownstown, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 Cabin was very nice and very clean. Lots of living space. The view is Beautiful. Bedrooms are large and beds are comfortable. Nice touch with jacuzzi tubs. The hot tub was wonderful. Star gazing is fantastic. The loft had a pool table, flat screen tv, couch and lounge chair. Very nice location. Close yet far away. Drive time to Smokie Mts. National Park 1/2hr. Whitewater rafting on Pigeon River 1/2hr. Can't go wrong with this property if you enjoy peace and quiet.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you for your review Don. We are pleased to hear that the cabin, the location, the amenities and the view were all you had hoped for! Be sure to mention you have stayed with us before and receive 10% off your next booking. We hope you hurry back to make some more Smoky Mtn. memories soon!
A guest from Hopkins, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 The view was even better than the website showed. Loved Elk Springs check in process. Close to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the park but far enough out to be secluded/private. Very clean and everything was in good working order. Kids loved the pool table and the hot tub on the deck. Great vacation!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Another 5-star review from a satisfied guest! Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some great feedback Belinda! What a treat when you find out the cabin and view exceed your expectations! We are glad the kids enjoyed the amenities the cabin had to offer as well. We hope you and your family come back to make more memories in the Smoky Mountains soon!
A guest from Waxahachie, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 We had a great time. Wonderful views. Wished for a sofa sleeper. Had two 13 year olds. One slept on couch and one on the futon.
Michael K. from Crowley, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 Our family stayed at Bearfoot Memories from 07-19-2015 thru 07-25-2015. The cabin was very nice and spacious with two full bedrooms with king beds and separate bathrooms. The gameroom upstairs was a nice getaway as well (needs an updated TV though). The location was perfect for us. About 15 minutes east of Gatlinburg and nicely secluded. The grocery store (Food Lion) was about 10 minutes away. There are a few things that need updating/fixed. The hot tub would only get a few of the jets going as one of the knobs that affects the jet flow was broken off. The charcoal grill just needs to be replaced. It is rusted out and actually dangerous. The gas grill was perfectly fine to use though and we did. It think the deck needs to have some new nails and be restained. As far as the inside, really just replace a few of the bulbs that were out and maybe add a few kitchen items such as cookies sheets and a knife sharpener. The cabin was very clean when we arrived. Overall experience was very good and would give it a 4.5 out of 5.
A guest from Chesterfield, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 Very beautiful view and comfortable accommodations. The cabin was perfectly equipped. We had a great time and would have rated 5 stars except...One of the mattresses was past its prime and really needed to be replaced, though, as it was quite uncomfortable for sleeping. Additionally, the exterior of the cabin needed a good clean up. It didn't appear to have had any attention in a long time which made it a lot less appealing to use the deck with the beautiful view.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Thank you Helen! I am very sorry that you didn't find the exterior of the cabin and deck area to be exceptionally clean and the mattress was uncomfortable. We will make sure these issues are addressed and our cleaners do a better job of ensuring the deck areas are cleaned each time the cabin is. We hope you enjoyed the surrounding area along with the beautiful views and the overall comfort of the cabin itself during your stay.
Melanie P. from Birmingham, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 The stay at Bearfoot Memories was truly a blessing. First of all, the view is absolutely gorgeous. It's just as breathtaking as the pictures. The cabin itself was so adorably quaint; secluded, clean, cozy. The kitchen was well stocked with your basic utensils. The staff was a pleasure to work with in the booking process. Also, we couldn't figure out how to turn on the grill. We called and immediately got helpful answers. I will say that it took a little bit longer to dry our clothes than the standard 50 minutes, but no biggie. And remember to call and officially check out. But overall, our stay was FANTASTIC!!!! We'll definitely be back!!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals We are sorry that you had trouble with the grill and clothes dryer during your stay. As you can well imagine, these get used quite a bit and when guests like you report an issue, we respond quickly for the assist with an easy repair or replacement! Thank you for your feedback! We are pleased that you had a Fantastic stay. Don't forget to take advantage of the 10% repeat guest discount we offer when you book again!
Rodney E. from Plainfield, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2015 This cabin has a great view of the mountains. This was our 4th time to rent through Elk Springs Resort and they have always treated us well. We enjoy staying east of Gatlinburg for the views. Our stays have been for a family of 5 and for 2 of us in the past. This time we had a group of 4 and it was once again the right size and accommodations for us.
David G. from Lewisville, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2015 Our stay at Bearfoot Memories was wonderful. The cabin was extremely nice and the view unbelievable. The cabin is very nicely furnished with everything you can think of and then some more. We went to relax and see the area and it was perfect. We used the hot tub, bar-b-que grill, pool table and even read a couple of books in the small library. It is about 7-8 miles outside of town just far enough to be away but close enough to go back when exploring and going to the park. We plan on returning next year to explore more.
Steve &. from Titusville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2015 We had a great time!!!! The cabin was absolutely beautiful. It was so beautifully decorated and extremely clean (and we are picky). The views were amazing and the secluded location was perfect. We enjoyed our trip so much, we will tell our friends and definitely come back! The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We loved this cabin!
Casandra W. from Williamston, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in April, 2015 The cabin was wonderful, clean and well maintained, also a beautiful view! There are so many great things to say about this cabin!!! The only thing I was not pleased with was when the maintenance man came to refill the tablets for the hot tub I guess he brought his dog which pooped right my the porch steps and he did not clean it up.
James S. from Spring, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in February, 2015 My wife and I have always wanted to rent a cabin in the mountains. We have traveled to many parts of the world to do specific things. I fretted many evenings on the internet looking at the amenities at the hundreds of properties in the area. Bearfoot Memories WAS the RIGHT choice. From the wide pine interiors and Alpine looking exterior to the not covered hot tub and the charcoal grill (it also had a gas grill). It was absolutely what I thought staying in a cabin in the Smokies should be. Everything was perfect. Although they had satellite tv, wifi, and phones mostly I left them off and sat on the porch and had coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings. This is the view I was looking for. I could go on and on since we stayed almost a week but it would be more of the same. I can't speak for any other properties in the area (I KNOW there are more beautiful properties) but for us THIS WAS IT !!!!!!
Noora L. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2015 Amazing stay! The cabin was even better than in the pictures, clean, and all around wonderful. This was our 3rd time staying at an Elk Springs Resort cabin, and while they have all been great, this was our favorite cabin.
Gregory W. from Alexandria, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 Cabin was great and also has a fantastic view of the mountains. To us this is one fine cabin for two couples to stay, but there is a few issues. Kitchen faucet leaks if your hand is putting pressure on it all over the counter top. Deadbolt on door does not work. Banister to upstairs game room is very loose and could break if pressure is put on it and someone may fall. Other than that we would definitely stay in that cabin again and again.
Rachael S. from Blacksburg, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2014 Everything was great....only maintenance issue was that the sinks were not draining and filling up with standing water but it was resolved.
A guest from Sarasota, FL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2014 The viwe was absolutely beautiful, but the good ends there. The cabin was not clean. Oven was disgusting. Dryer was full of lint even in the door. Clothes took over 2 hours to dry. Cobwebs and dust everywhere.Had a snowstorm the last night. Cabin did not have salt or snow shovel as posted outside. I called Jeremy, the Property Manager and he told me he was too busy to do anything. Also we lost power and had no candles. Heat source from gas fireplace only.Ice maker not working, issue with alarm, loose railings....and useless Jeremy did not even return the call. I called Elk Springs and got an answers, but nothing actually got done.even though this property is not managed by Elk Springs, they are ultimately responsible. This was our 3rd year with Elk Springs, and probably our last. For the money paid for this cabin ($2300) for 8 nights, was VERY disappointing.
Jennifer N. from Poland, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 We have stayed in this cabin twice now and love the seclusion it offers! When you need to get away from it all, it is the place that offers it!This cabin is close to downtown Gatlinburg and all the amenities it offers, but far enough away to be in the serene beauty it offers in a few short minutes. We love it!!
Barbara P. from Savannah, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2014 We enjoyed a 6 night stay in this beautiful cabin. It is exactly as pictured and the view is breathtaking. Check-in/out was very easy. We definitely plan on returning to this cabin as I can't imagine a more beautiful place to stay.
Cathi M. from Orlando, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2014 We enjoyed our stay very much. The cabin was clean. All equipment in the cabin in working order. We did not cook any meals in or use the grills. We enjoyed the wonderful restaurants in the area. The only 2 things with the cabin that needs some attention is the carpet and the loft area stays hot and would have been uncomfortable for anyone to sleep in .
Jack K. from Vero Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2014 We celebrated our 50th Anniversary at Bearfoot Memories. This is just the most adorable cabin and we fell in love with it. The outside is so cute, and the property it sits on is beautiful with a view that is magnificent. The porch is a decent size to enjoy relaxing or cooking out. A few more rockers would be nice and an umbrella for the table would have been great during the daytime.The cabin inside is cozy and very inviting. We cooked most meals at the cabin and found it to be well stocked. The bedrooms were quiet large and the beds were very comfortable.I highly recommend this cabin if you want a beautiful cabin with amazing mountain views. We plan on renting this cabin again if we are in need of a two bedroom.I just can't say enough about the management at Elk Springs. From Dan, who books us, to Jeremy who manages the property, and the ladies who check up on you to make sure everything is to your liking. They all make sure your visit is a good way !
Diane H. from New Castle, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2014 This was our second stay in Bearfoot Memories. We adore this little cabin and it's breathtaking view. We highly recommend it!
We couldn't ask for anything more! We will be back!
A guest from Bay City, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2014 We absolutely loved the Bearfoot Memories cabin! We rent a cabin in Gatlinburg every year and we finally found the perfect cabin! There is no way to describe how beautiful the views are. We felt like we were constantly looking at a post card (inside & outside the cabin). The drive up/down to the cabin was my biggest worry and it was so easy to get to - well paved/maintained and the neighborhood is very very nice. The cabin was spotless and beautiful - it felt like home. You can see the mountains from just about every room. We would take the kids into town and we all just wanted to get back to the cabin to relax in the hot tub, grill and play pool. We will be back for sure!
A guest from London, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2014 Our vacation was awesome. We loved the cabin Bearfoot Memories it was everything we say in the pictures and more. We never expected to say in such luxury in a cabin it was like it was our own private cabin. We would not hesitate to book again and I am not sure any other cabin would compare to it. The view in the day as well as at night was breathe taking. We found lots of things to do and Gatlinburg it's self took us 2 days to walk the streets and I am not sure we even saw everything. If we plan another visit there is still lots to see and do. We would recommend this trip and Elk Springs to anyone. Thanks for making our vacation the best
Jennifer C. from Menomonee Falls, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2014 We took a family vacation to celebrate two birthdays. Cabin was perfect! Very clean and well stocked. Amazing view. Close to downtown but far enough away from hustle and bustle. Highly recommend!
Stephanie W. from Jupiter, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2014 Quiet, beautiful, and very relaxing. Cabins were out of town which is nice. They are well stocked with all of the features needed for a carefree stay. All needs were taken care of immediately. Jeremy was awesome. All you have to do is show up and start enjoying.
Aimee C. from Glastonbury, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2014 Fantastic stay with absolutely gorgeous views in a beautiful, private cabin that had everything we needed. The property managers were very friendly and thoughtful and checked in with us during our stay to ensure we were satisfied. This was like a home away from home in the Great Smoky Mountains!
Michelle H. from Big Pool, Maryland recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 This was our 3rd time to the Smoky's. This was our first time staying in the Bearfoot Memories Cabin. The view was totally amazing. We stayed at one of the Elk Springs cabins before on the same road but the view from this cabin was totally awesome.
Judy R. from Youngstown, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 My cousin and I had a wonderful long weekend. We enjoyed the cabin location, the hot tub,and the fact that everything was included and upscale(for a cabin). We had a wonderful experience. We loved the arts & crafts trail, the Wild Plum Tea Room, and just relaxing on the deck enjoying nature.
Carissa G. from Martinsburg, WV recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2014 We were extremely pleased with what we paid for in this rental! We were leery with the pictures looking over photo shopped, however, they don't do the place justice! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and appreciated coming into a place that just felt like home.
Tim C. from Saint Elmo, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2014 The cabin was perfect! Very clean, well stocked, all the little things were done. Easy check in process. And the view was amazing! We spent as much time in the cabin as we did seeing the sites and downtown. It felt like a home away from home but stress free! We will stay there again, the kids are already asking me when we are going back! Thank you Elk Springs Resort, you are top notch! A+++++
Eric R. from Brusly, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2014 My wife and I were awe struck when we first walked into the cabin. We were just not ready for it. We absolutely loved it up there and would not hesitate in the future to plan another stay in one of your cabins. Thanks for everything. My favorite thing was watching television with my wife cuddled up next to me with the fire going. It doesn't get any better than that. Thanks again guys! We loved it.
A guest from indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014 Cabin was excellent in all aspects... Great location .. Clean..beautiful view.. Would definitely stay there again!
Sheridan C. from Gainesville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014 My fiancé and I didn't want to leave and already booked out next stay! This cabin is absolutely amazing. It was just what we needed to escape from reality for awhile on a mini- vacation. I would and do recommend this cabin and company to friends and family. Can't wait to be back at bear foot memories!!
Christy L. from Marion, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in March, 2014 We had a fabulous time at Bearfoot Memories. The cabin was even better than we ever could have imagined. The living area with big screen TV and fireplace and comfy couches was so cozy. It was a great area for watching movies and playing games. We had a blast playing pool in the loft. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds were so comfortable. The Jacuzzi tubs were a real treat. The kitchen was well equipped and perfect for dining in. Having a washer and dryer was so helpful. The deck and hot tub were incredible. We spent many hours out there. The directions made the cabin very easy to find. We loved the privacy. This far exceeded our expectations....we could not have asked for anything better! Thanks Elk Springs for providing such a relaxing home away from home for our vacation.
A guest from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2014 Living in the city we wanted a quick weekend getaway and Bearfoot Memories was perfect. The view was breathtaking and the cabin was lovely, super clean, and cozy. We accidentally locked ourselves out of the cabin on our first night around 8pm but we were able to get ahold of the staff and were back inside within 15 minutes. They were super helpful and we look forward to visiting this cabin again.
Robert C. from Greencastle, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in February, 2014 Loved our time at Bearfoot Memories. We wanted to have a getaway that was very low key and relaxing and that is exactly what our stay was. We spent a fair amount of time at the cabin enjoying the peace and quiet and comfortable atmosphere. We did not want to leave when our time was up, have recommended to others that this is a great little getaway.
A guest from Angola, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2013 Cannot wait to go back, we had a blast, this cabin is so relaxing, the hottub, the fire place and pool table were our favorite! Not to mention the view, it's breathtaking. Checking in and out was easy and very convienient. We will be returning! No complaints at all
Paul J. from Humble, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 This cabin, the view, and the experience exceeded our expectations on every level. It was clean, with all modern amenities including breathtaking views from the deck and hot tub at night. It was one of the most enjoyable vacation rentals I've every made.
Ashleigh R. from Hayes, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 We loved our stay at Bearfoot Memories. The cabin was in great shape, had amazing views from the deck and was a good distance from town. We enjoyed the seclusion of the cabin but we were still close to the attractions in Gatlinburg. Satellite tv and wifi was available. Property was kept in good condition. Overall we had a very relaxing vacation and hope to return again!
A guest from Columbia, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2013 We went for privacy, relaxation and views of the Smokey Mountains. We found everything we were looking for and then some! Would definitely rent this cabin again. Six days were not enough. Next time we'll stay 2 weeks!
Denise A. from Miamisburg, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 This is the second time this year we have stayed at this exact cabin and if we had the time, would stay again during winter. We love everything about it and have recommended to many of our friends.
Diane H. from New Castle, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 This is a top-notch cabin! From the moment we walked through the door we were in amazement of how delightful Bearfoot Memories cabin is. The cabin was very clean, the décor was tasteful, the loft was cozy, and the view from the floor to ceiling windows was outstanding! After our day excursions into the National Park we felt like we were home when we got back to the cabin. Grilling on the deck, soaking in the hot tub, and watching the ever changing scenery of the mountains was total enjoyment. We adored this cabin and we will definitely come visit again.
A guest from Atlanta, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2013 Two days after the whirlwind of our wedding, my husband and I made our way to Bear Foot Memories for a week-long honeymoon. The cabin was immaculate, and we immediately felt at home. The location of the cabin was great too, as we had lots of privacy, but were close to several entrances to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The road up to the cabin is in good condition and my little Acura had no problem getting up there. The check-in/check-out process was seamless, and the keypad entry meant that there was no key to lose. There's even a grocery store nearby that had everything we needed that we forgot to bring! The cabin was beautiful and had far more amenities than we ever needed, but we really enjoyed having the extra bedroom and loft space, and even the little lawn outside. We really loved our time here and were very sad to leave. We'd like to return as soon as we have some more vacation time saved up!
Jim M. from Jacksonville, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2013 Great location - beautiful views from deck and inside cabin. Amenities nice and comfortable. We liked being off the beaten track.
A guest from Troy, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2013 Most beautiful place that we have ever stayed! All of the amenities of home with the most spectacular view!! Will definitely be staying here again!!
A guest from Lowell, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2013 WE COULDN'T OF AKSED FOR ANYTHING BETTER. EVERY HEAD TURNING VIEW AT THE CABIN WAS TRUELY BREATH TAKING, AND YET WE AKSED OUR SELVES "WHY DO WE LIVE IN INDIANA"!!!
BEST View (Barefoot Memories - Elk Springs Resort)
Georgi C. from Battle Creek, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2013 We go to Gatlinburg every year and NOTHING compares to this cabin as far as the cleanliness, upkeep, and views go. We love the fact that it's secluded and you can't see the person next to you. If we can't reserve this cabin then it's not worth going to us.
Michelle B. from Indian River, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 We got married in Gatlinburg and spent 3 nights at Bearfoot Memories. We had guests over the night before the wedding and there was plenty of room for a group of 10 with the loft, patio and living area. We grilled and enjoyed the awesome mountain view from the patio. The cabin was very clean and included necessary items. It was about a 20 minute drive to downtown Gatlinburg, but closer to a park and ride trolley stop. We hope to return to Bearfoot Memories!
William W. from Lorain, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 The floors were dirty, doors don't close properly, some dishes were dirty, deck not clean, kitchen table top surface should be refinished or table replaced, carpet up stairs still has burn hole in it, bugs on top of fridge and in windows. Also suggest a good screen door to allow fresh air in.
A guest from Troy, Michigan recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2013 Awesome cabin, awesome location, awesome view. If you like to feel like you're in a remote location while still staying within a short drive of the park, the local craft stores and downtown Gatlinburg, this is the place for you. We absolutely loved it.
Phillip P. from Sandusky, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2013 We have stayed at better vacation rental cabins. This one was "ok". The view was amazing although, the cabin was quite far from town and trolley stops. The websites for Elk Springs Resort all claim that their cabins are exceptionally clean, however this was not the case with this cabin. There was dust everywhere inside the cabin. The carpet throughout the cabin was dirty and had a glob of something in it in the loft. When we turned the jets on in one of the tubs, black stuff came shooting out-possibly mold.?? The clothes dryer took more than 3 hours to dry a load as reported by another renter. We had to replace lightbulbs outside so we could see the keypad to get in at night. Overall, the view was great, the location was a bit of an inconvenience, and the cabin was a bit of a let-down.
Kristen H. from Chatham, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2013 My husband was shocked by how beautiful this property was. It was our first time to the smoky mountians, so we really weren't sure what to expect. The view was amazing and the house was perfect. We kind of just wanted to move right in. I have three little kids and they were in heaven in the hot tub!
A guest from Patterson, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2013 This is a wonderful, well appointed cabin with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. The views were spectacular from inside and out and the location is very private. It was also great to have the game room for the one wet afternoon of our trip. Only minor disappointments were the small stall showers - in such spacious bathrooms it would have been nice to have a different arrangement.
Denise A. from Miamisburg, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013 It was so nice to step into a beautiful, clean cabin and spend a relaxing week away. The place was set up so comfortably and it was so nice to have a nice set of dishes, utensils, cutlery and cookware there. Very homey. Thank you!
Darrin B. from Rainsville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2013 We loved the views from Bearfoot Memories. A little drive to get there but so peaceful. Nice weather. The bed was so comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub. *One thing--the jets in the tub had mold coming out of them
Brandy L. from Ringgold, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in January, 2013 The views was awesome. I lived the privacy. It had a couple issues with the cabin. The dryer would take 3 hours to dry a small load of towels. The jet tubs in both bathrooms had mold in the lines. Black mold came out when you turned them on. The vents in the bathrooms was full of dust. It just looked bad. They still worked. Foil over the stove plates for the eyes. Kinda tacky. The cabin was great. I would stay there again if it was maintained a little better. YOU CAN'T ASK FOR BETTER VIEWS AND PRIVACY.
Tammy B. from Saucier, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012 We always choose Elk Springs for our Smoky Mt. stay. It is always absolutely perfect with the most beautiful views!
Richard W. from Cincinnati, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2012 Everyone writes how nice the view is from the cabin, but until you see it you don't realize how hard it is to describe. The cabin itself was wonderful. It was equipped with everything we needed for our long weekend. The way it's furnished is so welcoming & it makes you feel like you are in a home not a rental.We had an issue finding the road as we came in at night. I would suggest rechecking the mileage it was not 10 miles to the C-21 office, more like 8 something. We passed right by it & finally asked someone who helped us find the road.
Peter P. from West Palm Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in October, 2012 Great location, very private, beautiful morning sunrise every day. Bearfoot Memories was a perfect home for our vacation in the Smokies.
Premchand G. from Littleton, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2012 Awesome experience in awesome cabin and 3 night stay is too less to completely enjoy this cabin. Will plan for extended stay next time for sure. Hassle free reservation, check in and check out process. It would have been better if the cabin was handed over before the scheduled check in time of 3 PM.
Cristina W. from Peoria, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2012 Bearfoot Memories had such an amazing view!! Overall, the cabin was very clean (aside from the cookware stored in the broiler) and pulled through with all the amenities promised. I do recall the hot tub being described as covered, however, it was on the open deck. The location was great. Not too far away from food and entertainment. The property management company was extremely nice and even called the second day of our stay to see if everything was going smoothly. Check in was easy as well. The only issue we had was when a man unexpectedly showed up to the cabin in an unmarked vehicle, followed by an unmarked van. It wasn't until I called the number listed for the property manager that I was told he was in fact the man that showed up with another man to give an estimate on painting the exterior of the cabin. Due to the fact that Bearfoot Memories is very secluded and we are from out of town, this was very scary and nerve-wracking. Other than that one incident, the cabin is well worth it! We stayed 6 days!
Heather S. from Winston Salem, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2012 We really enjoyed our stay at Bearfoot Memories! The views were breathtaking! I felt like I was home. I really liked being secluded yet not too far from town. The only problem we had is we ran out of propane while cooking a nice meal. Overall, a great stay and will be back!
Lawana W. from Pitt City, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 The cabin was extremely well kept and smelled incredibly clean upon walking in. The views were absolutely unbelievable, and the beds were very comfortable.We will absolutely be coming back and statying at Bearfoot Memories!
Robert E. from Troy, OH does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 When we showed up the hot tub was filthy there was hair and foam and the water was murky. The porch and porch furniture was completely covered with bird droppings. we called three or four times to fix the problem and were told that 1st the person taking care of the property has been emailed. after no response and we called back we were told that he couldn't be gotten a hold of and a message was left. After no one showed for two days we called the next day and another message was left by elk springs to the caretaker. After no one showed again we turned off the tub and drained it and refilled it ourself. We also washed down the furniture and scrubbed it. We are not anal retentive people or have OCD we just don,t like to bath in other's slurry or dine on a table covered with bird feces. This was the 2nd time that we had stayed at Bearfoot Memories the first time was good 2nd time not a charm.. No one ever even called back after 4 complaints to see if the situation was fixed. For $1000+ dollars I could of stayed home and cleaned up my own stuff. If you want I will send pictures!
A guest from Leonardo, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 My husband and I came to TN to get married and saw this amazing cabin online and couldnt wait to get there. It was absolutely beautiful. The view is spectacular. We LOVED it and cannot wait to come back. Very secluded and private. Close to downtown gatlinburg It couldnt have been any more perfect!
A guest from Kiel, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2012 I was extremely pleased with my rental experience with Elk Springs Resort and my cabin Bearfoot Memories. The view from the front deck was like a painting that changed with the time of day. One day it rained and it was still breathtaking with the way the greens from the trees and the different contrasting colors from the clouds and it created a whole new portrait. The cabin was cozy for my family and we had some very valuable family time before my two children go off to college. I hope to return again soon.
Anirudh S. from Columbus, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 my wife and I along with our 6 month old kid stayed here. much needed break and boy did the cabin deliver. everything was in mint condition, and the cabin was exceptionally well kept.
Billy M. from Heflin, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 Bearfoot Memories is a cabin located on a mountain side overlooking a valley. The mountain is covered with morning mist early, and the sun is unforgettable as it peaks over endless mountain ridges. I really never wanted to leave the cabin because of the beauty. The mountain side is dotted with small, yellow incandescent flickering at night, and you know that all throughout the valley there are people living life in the mountains.
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.
Kathryn P. from Fort Wayne, Indiana recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 Our family had an amazing vacation while staying at Bearfoot Memories. The cabin was spotless, the beds were very comfortable and the view was fantastic. Everything was exactly the way that is should have been with the cabin! We can't say enough of how thrilled we were with this cabin and our experience with Elk Springs! Thank you for a very enjoyable family vacation that our boys will remember for a very long time!
A guest from Lewis Center, Ohio recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012 We loved the cabin - the views were amazing and our stay was as peaceful as we had hoped! We did nothing in town after dark because the road up to the cabin is narrow, winding and has no guardrails or lane markers. I've driven a lot of mountain roads but it would take me several weeks of day time runs up and down that road to feel safe taking it at night.
A guest from Greenfield, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2012 BearFoot Memories was AMAZING!! We were a little hesitant at first because we have always known pictures to be deceiving...but not with this rental!! The cabin was EXATCTLY as the pictures show...even better!! The view was absolutely breathtaking, the cabin was clean, and just perfect. I would love to go back again and i would highly recommend this cabin to anyone!! You defiantly will NOT be disappointed :))
Jean R. from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2012 Pictures do not give it justice. I loved it there. Spectacular view and very clean and cozy! I highly recommend this cabin!
Yifei K. from Chesterfield, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in April, 2012 Nice Cabin, great location. Almost everything things are new and in great conditions. Enjoyed the Blue-ray. Super nice employee(Jeremy), replaced our empty gas tank when called at 7:30PMNeed sharper knifes and more usable cutting board.
Michael S. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in April, 2012 We loved the cabin. Arrival was smooth, we even received a followup call to make sure everything went well. Cabin was clean and cozy and just what we hoped for - we actually stayed an extra day. Wireless internet worked well, view was great.Our only complaint was that the cabin was a little further from downtown gatlinburg than we thought. Not really a problem, but you just have to plan ahead as you aren't going to want to go back and forth to the cabin.
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.
Jeff C. from Smithville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2011 The family enjoyed everything about the cabin and its location. We will be looking forward to staying at Bearfoot Memories again. The hot tub at night with the wife was great and the pool table gave some good family time with the girls. The location was just perfect not in town and not to far away from downtown Gatlinburg. I have always wanted to stay in a cabin with a view and I finally crossed that off my bucket list with also getting to ride a horse for the first time.
A guest from Caryville, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2011 We really did enjoy our stay. The cabin was awesome!!! The only thing that was not great was waiting for someone to call us to get our security code for the cabin. We waited all day and didn't recieve a call. We finally called them at 2:30 and was given our information. It was just a bit "uncertain" and nobody wants that on a vacation. It would be better if you gave out a key or you gave the call a day before not the day of. Other than that it was GREAT!!!!!!! Lovely view and cabin.
Jeff M. from Lapeer, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2011 The place was great and very clean. We were very pleased with the amenities and were secluded from other cabins. Great view and close to town. We definitely plan to return.
A guest from Royal Palm Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 The pictures we saw online of Barefoot Memories did not do the view justice. It is spectacular and we were thrilled as we drove up to the property. The cabin itself was spotless and equipped with anything you would need for a luxury vacation. Watching Despicable Me on Blu ray on the big screen with surround sound was an unexpected bonus. The beds were fantastic and pleasing me is not easy to do. The kids loved playing games in the loft and learning to play pool. The private location was perfect too making us feel like we were all alone, but still knowing civilization was not too far away. We could not have picked a better place to stay.
A guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2011 Traveled with three adults, 1 & 3 yr old boys. We had a great time. Very courteous and helpful management staff. The cabin was well equipped and comfortable. Pool table, Blu-ray player, and top of the line AV equipment were great for entertaining kids and adults alike. The adults loved the hot tub and grilling under the stars. What a view! Close enough to everything, yet away from all the tourists. Only downside was that the main living area/kitchen and loft got way too hot during the day in Mid-summer. The thermostat read 79 deg. by 9AM each morning, and stayed @ 79 deg. until late afternoon. This problem could be helped by installing window coverings on the high windows. The AC simply can't compete with the morning/midday sun that pours in. All-in-all, great stay! We'd rent from Elk Springs again without question.
Steven B. from Runnemede, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2011 Bearfoot Memories was so much more than we expected! The cabin is beautiful and spotless. It's tucked away for privacy yet only minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and all the attractions. The cabin had absolutely everything you needed for a wonderful stay. There was a loft with pool table, flatscreen tvs and dvd players in almost every room. The view was spectacular! The hot tub was so relaxing after our busy days out and about. Each bathroom had its own whirlpool tub and shower stall. Fresh linens were provided for each bathroom.The bedrooms were beautifully decorated with the most comfortable beds!Our week long stay was amazing! We couldn't find one thing wrong. If we could stay at this cabin no matter where we were to vacation, we would be one happy family!Thanks Bearfoot memories and thanks Elk Springs Resort!
Stephen S. from Grayslake, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2011 This was our second time at Elk Springs and it was wonderful! The view from the cabin is spectacular and the amenities are perfect (especially the pool table, which played at night). Management is very responsive and helpful. We'll be back. Great vacation! Thanks.
David C. from Dundrod, Antrim recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2011 Had a balst at the cabin. BBQ's overlooking the mountains - bliss.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals David, we appreciate the opportunity to have you as a guest! Don't forget that you get 10% off all future stays as a repeat guest
Dan J. from Toledo, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in May, 2011 The cabin is beautiful and the view is incredible. The cabin was very clean and it has all of the ammenities that you have at home and more. The front deck gives you a great view of the mountains nearby and you only have a view of a couple cabins far off in the distance and are not in your line of sight. Pool table and card table give you hours of enjoyment and it is very well decorated. The drive up there can be a bit of a challenge, but driving anywhere in the area can be a challenge because of steep inclines and drop-offs just be prepared, our 4 cylinder made it up so its not like you need a truck or 4x4 (the view at the cabin is worth it). The only complaint that we have through our whole week of being there is that when the water is ran in the cabin you can hear a noise in the master bedroom that sound like a water heater or pump we were not sure but it can wake you up. My wife and I were woke up several times during the vacation because of this. Also when the air kicks off and on it can be kind of loud. The other problem we had which is no fault of Elk Springs is that while you are quite secluded and cant see and cabins near by there is a cabin close by maybe a hundred yards or so of thick forest between but they were having a party which was rather loud they woke us up about 3:00 in the morning on our last night there, but it died down soon after. If it wasnt for the noise I would give the cabin a perfect review, but I just cant.
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Dan, thanks for the review! We're looking at the water treatment unit to see if we can run the timer at a different time during the day.
Alice G. from Winston-Salem, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in March, 2011 I was extremely satisfied with our cabin. I actually didn't expect it to be so nice. It was everything I hoped and more.
Charles T. from Lafayette, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 We had a wonderful time at bearfoot memories. We wish a later checkout was available, but that won't keep us from coming back. We will have to remember to bring playing cards and family games. Management was helpful. Beautiful cabin, awesome view!
Timothy L. from Lebanon, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2011 We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We loved how secluded and private it was but still close enough to everything we needed, it was perfect. It felt like home, we didn't want to leave. The view of the mountain was gorgeous, enjoyed from inside through the huge windows or outside on the peaceful deck. We loved the hot tub and the pool table too. Will definitely go back to Bearfoot Memories!
A guest from Tyrrelstown, Dublin recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2011 My boyfriend and I spent 3 glorious days in this beautiful cabin. The pics actually don't do it justice! The view is absolutely amazing and sitting in the hot tub at night under the stars was just one of the many highlights. The cabin is located about 7 miles from Gatlinburg nestled into the side of a hill. It's very private although there are cabins near by, but not overlooking the property. The cabin was absolutely spotless and is kitted out with everything you could possibly need. We plan on coming back here as soon as we have some time off. Thanks to the reservation staff for being so helpful and recommending this cabin!
Hunter C. from Charlottesville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in January, 2011 My wife and I stayed at Bearfoot Memories the last week of January and had the most amazing time. It's sort of the off-season for Gatlinburg, but the low-key feel was exactly what we needed. Gorgeous mountain views through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, the fireplace, hot tubbing in the snow... so perfect.We loved how our cabin was secluded and private without being remote. Bearfoot Memories is actually off the main Elk Springs Resort property, but it wasn't difficult to get to and was very convenient to Gatlinburg and all the restaurants, shops, and attractions in town.Some of the highlights of the week were the Aquarium of the Smokies, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and dinners at the Greenbriar and Calhoun's.This was our first time in Gatlinburg, and we're excited to come back; Elk Springs is where we'll stay, for sure. Maybe we'll even bring some friends with us next time!
John M. from Kissimmee, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2010 The cabin and location was wonderful. There were only 2 issues within the cabin I would suggest needs to be fix. The remote control in the main living room did not always work. The shower heads in the bathrooms should have different settings. It currently has only one setting that sprays out too far out (out the shower stall).The biggest complaint I would have is with the management company. It started the first day when we were not given proper instructions for disarming the alarm. The security company did call, so did the police and the owner of the property called because they could not reach the management company. Next, there should information either provided by management company or owner on what to do when it snows. As a Floridian, we were snowed in for 3 days and didn't know how to get down the driveway or mountain. We could not get a hold of anyone from the management company. We left several messages for them and as of today we still have never heard from them other than this email. We were disappointed in the their or your response!
Michael B. from Cameron, SC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in December, 2010 The property is a little ways out but still within a quick drive of downtown Gatlinburg. The view is amazing! We had snow for two of our four days, which really added to the view of the mountains. The cabin is cozy and comfortable. And speaking of comfortable, the beds are extremely comfy. Best sleep we've had in a while! The only complaint I have is that the shower is a little cramped for my 6 foot, 190 pound frame, as well as the shower head itself being pretty unpleasant. Aside from that trivial matter, the stay and the property were both wonderful!!
Frankie H. from Cottondale, Alabama recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2010 We had a wonderful time. And the caretakers were so helpful when one of our grandchrildren became ill. We really appreciated his help.
A guest from Newburgh, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in November, 2010 The location was very good. View and privacy was great. Cabin was not as upgraded as I was expecting, but still nice. I would have appreciated more alarm system instruction before arriving. Had some trouble with that upon first entry. The most excitement was when a mother bear and 4 cubs visited within a few feet of the front deck. Thrilling and terrifying at the same time. Overall a good stay.
Gorgeaous views and cabin! The "discounts" on the site were a little confusing, so we had to call, and still did not get a clear

Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Kelli, sorry for the confusion. We have a lot of specials as we like to offer the best value and they can be confusing (not on purpose!). As a repeat visitor you get an additional 10% off on all future stays.
Debbie W. from Murfreesboro, Tennessee recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2010 Loved that we didn't need a key, however, the lady who called with the entry code gave us the wrong number. It was midnight when we arrived the first night and since the property was not within the resort boundaries, security said it was out of their jurisdiction and could not help us. That issue should be looked into if Elk Springs continues using cabins outside their "resort boundary". Owner called and gave the correct code - rest of the stay was wonderful. Had a good laugh and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thank you for some great memories!
Property Manager Response: Response from Elk Springs Resort Cabin Rentals Hi Debbie, glad you enjoyed your stay and sorry for the mixup with your door code. We have dedicated security and maintenance for the cabin in the area where you rented. You probably called our main number as opposed to the dedicated number on your check in reservation documents. That's OK! Our security / maintenance person at our main site after hours doesnt cover the cabins you were staying in so he called that areas manager / owner who assisted you with your door very quickly. He's only 5-8 minutes from the cabin. So if you do stay at a similar cabin again in that area and if you call our main maintenance number we will dispatch you to that areas maintenance person. Don't forget that you get 10% off all future stays!
Margaret C. from Mount Juliet, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 Everything was wonderful at this cabin, the Hot Tub could have been larger for 4 people. It was quite crowded, but all in all it was great!
Cathy C. from Alma, Ontario recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2010 We had a WONDERFUL vacation (25th wedding anniversary celebration). From the moment we pulled up to the cabin it was just perfect. The cabin was more than we expected and the website does not do it justice. The views were Magnificant and we had a wonderful time (can you tell !!!). We WILL be back.Thank you
Carroll M. from Burlington, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2010 In my 40 years of coming to the Smokies, Bearfoot Memories without question is the best. From the private drive, the spectacular view, the cabin layout all added to a wonderful stay. I was amazed on how clean the cabin was on the inside. We ran out of propane and it was replaced in 15 minutes. This cabin is absolutely perfect. The staff as always did a outstanding job. I would buy this cabin, if it was for sale. Great Job Elk Springs, We will be back
Gregory K. from Cary, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2010 We really enjoyed our stay in Aug 2010. The cabin was beautiful and secluded but close enough to all the things we wanted to do.
A guest from Metropolis, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2010 This cabin could be renamed Beautiful Memories! A clean and comfortable cabin with a splendid view of Mt. Leconte from the windows and the deck. Pleasantly, this pretty cabin had everything the website listed and more! Our family will stay again! Also, the directions and contacts from Elk Springs Resort answered every question prior to our arrival. P.S. Enjoyed the rocking chairs!
A guest from Shipensburg, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 The cabin was clean and we loved the quiet location. The view was fantastic and everything was very comfortable. We plan to return!
Mark B. from Tipp City, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in July, 2010 Cabin was very private with an absolutely magnificent view. Nicely appointed with just about all you need, just bring food & drink. Close enough to Gatlinburg & all the attractions when you want to go, and far enough away so you can relax and feel like you're alone in a secluded beautiful forest. Wonderful cabin! If we go back to Gatlinburg for another vacation, we will try to get this cabin again. 5 star stay all the way.
Travis L. from lexington, Kentucky recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2010 All i can say is we had a wonderful time and the cabin was the best ever. We plan on getting the same one in the fall!Thank you so much,Travis Lewis
