Bear’s eye view

First time we stayed at this cabin. The cabin was clean and cozy. Nice views, and had a wonderful visit. So much to do, and why we were at the cabin it was very quiet and peaceful. I would buck a other stay soon.

Great stay

My family and I had a great time at the cabin. Also pigeon forge and Gatlinburg was beautiful, we had a awesome time at dollywood also. I suggest this to anyone. The next time it's only me and my wife going for a romantic retreat.

Beautiful view

Overall the house was good, the view was amazing. There was plenty of space for 4 adults and 3 teenagers. The thing that was deceiving in the pictures was that the pool table was in the kitchen and the 2nd master bedroom was in the basement. We thought both masters were on main floor and pool table was in the basement. Things I would suggest... put address on the sign at bottom of the hill. very difficult to find house. We drove around at 8:30 at night for about an hour before finding the house. We were about to give up and find a hotel.

Great experience

Love this cabin! View was absolutely beautiful and we were looking for privacy and it was perfect! Will definitely try renting this same cabin in future. We had 6 adults and it was very comfy and plenty of space for everyone!

Amazing family trip!

Bear's Eye View was everything we needed and more! Plenty big for a group of 7 and the wrap around deck with the hot tub was unreal. Not to mention the big kitchen and hang out area and also the Mountain views were some of the best I've ever seen! I totally recommend any group to stay here. Plus it was nice to get away from the snow in Chicago, this was just what we needed. Mike

Bear's Eye View

Our family really enjoyed this beautiful cabin and the stunning mountain views. The beds were very comfortable and the loft was perfect for the kids. There were so many things to do in the area. We loved the hot tub and the large porch. This was our first trip to the Smokey Mountains but it won't be the last.

Bear's Eye View

This cabin is beautiful and true to the advertisement. We enjoyed the pool table and ping pong table and hot tub. All were in good condition and the hot tub was clean and in excellent condition. The views are amazing. They are the best of anywhere we have stayed before. The location was easy to drive to (as easy as it gets in the mountains)' convenient to town and attractions but has a secluded feel. We had 5 adults with plenty of room. It is decorated nicely but could use some updates on it's linens and bedding. I would definitely recommend it and hope my family can visit again. Thanks for giving us a good place to rest our heads.

We loved this cabin! It's SO spacious-- plenty of room for 2 families of 4. Upon arrival everything was clean. There were only a few towels in each bathroom (not quite enough) but it wasn't much of a problem because we just washed clothes every night. Coffee filters, napkins and toilet paper were stocked well. There were also plenty of dishes. Only problem with the dishes were that they were all glass- not appropriate for kids-- we bought paper cups for the kids and solved that issue. We loved the hot tub and the jacuzzis in the master bedrooms! We will definitely be returning!

We had ample space, comfortable beds, plenty of space to sit and watch t.v. and play games. The kitchen was very well stocked. The wifi mostly didn't work, but the cable was good. The porch was wonderful with rockers and a wooden swing. The only 2 warnings are to bring extra toilet paper and try to get there in daylight to comfortably maneuver the driveway.

Bears eye View

This is our second time staying at "Bears eye View".My kids had a choice of where to go and where to stay for our vacation and they wanted to go back to "Bears Eye View" They Love it There! They loved playing Corn hole,shooting pool and playing ping pong in the evening after hiking and sight seeing all day, and then relaxing in the hot tub.I liked sitting on the deck in the morning watching the sunrise and drinking my coffee,The view is awesome! The house was very clean and had new linens from last year. We didn't have any problems that affected our stay. We hope to stay back at " Bears eye View" again next year! Dwayne is very easy to deal with.

Such a beautiful home! Worth the 11 hour drive from Florida. Breath taking views from the porch and the town of Gatlinburg is such a close drive. The home sits apart at the highest point on the mountain. Truly a beautiful get a way!

Thanks for an awesome rental

I took my family on this trip we were a total of 10 people. This house had plenty of room for my entire family. Everyone enjoyed the large wrap around porch and the hot tub. All of the bedrooms are large and having 4 bathrooms was a blessing at times. The large kitchen was perfect and I personally loved the kitchen table and chairs. We used the pool table every night and enjoyed the board games in the closet we found. We cooked out 3 nights on the grill outback. We saw a lot of wildlife and my kids made friends with a local cat who would show up outback of the cabin almost every night. The private location was great for our family. My dad is a recent cancer survivor and I myself have Autistic twin boys who are 8. Other than the TV'S changing channels when someone else would change their channels this property was absolutely perfect!!! Not worth complaining about just a heads up.Lol. We had a wonderful time and plan on a return trip in the future. This cabin is AWESOME!!!!

We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It was clean and well equipped with everything needed for a stay away from home. We enjoyed being able to spread out yet being able to come together as a family to enjoy some quality time together. The views were fantasic and we even saw a rainbow the last night. A much recommended cabin for a family with kids or a a few families meeting together!

Fantastic Fall Foliage

My husband and I enjoyed "The Bear's Eye View" for five days and would have loved staying another five. The cabin is very well-built and the furniture was comfortable. Our view of the mountains and the surrounding woods was spectacular! Late one afternoon we had a flock of wild turkeys in our driveway. The leaves were at their most beautiful.

My family of 5 stayed at the Bear's Eye View cabin for a week. The cabin was perfect for our family! My teenager enjoyed her own area downstairs while my other two children had the entire upstairs to themselves. My husband and I had the bedroom on the main level.

We stayed at Bear Eye View over Labor Day Weekend 2013. I have to say overall we were very pleased with our stay. The cabin was clean, the AC worked WELL, the hottub was great, and our kids had fun playing ping pong and pool. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you might need for those of you like us that wanted to save some money by cooking and eating in instrad eating out.I would recommend this cabin to anyone, especially with kids. We had a small mishap, but Dwayne (owner) was quick to response and recitify the stuation to our satisfaction.

Amazing Relaxation!

This cabin quickly became our personal retreat in the great Smokey Mountains! Words cannot describe the experience of sitting out on the deck to start or end an eventful day of exploring the great outdoors. Thanks for thinking of our every possible need. All that was required of us was to successfully navigate the winding mountain roads, unlock the front door and BREATHE! Thanks Again --- We are already planning our return trip.

A Great Get A Way

First of all thank you for sharing your cabin with my family. It seems you have thought of everything for a relaxing vacation. We loved the kids space and all the bedding you have there. My husband and I felt like we were on a mini honeymoon with all the privacy the 3rd bedroom downstairs provided. The jacuzzi tub and fireplace in the room was wonderful. The corn hole was a big hit for an evening of family fun. We hope to stay with you again soon and will suggest to friends and other family members to check your cabins out first!
