We arrived to dirty socks in two locations, used washclothes hanging in the shower, broken lamps, multiple light bulbs out, dust bunnies, spider webs...wi fi didn't work, furnace couldn't keep the house remotely warm...and more. Went to office to talk about problems and was completely blown off with eye rolls and everything. Been renting cabins in Gatlinburg area for over two decades, multiple times with aunt Bug's over the years - first time to have a bad experience like this.

We enjoyed the cabin itself very much. So much that we even booked an extra night. We did have some trouble trying to get the TVs to work. But after about an hour of playing with different settings, we were able to figure it out. The WiFi never did work. Even after a repairman came out and claimed to have fixed it.
The reason I wouldn't recommend this cabin to anyone is because of the steep driveway and the many stairs leading up to the cabin. My parents are handicap and knowing about the amount of stairs before hand we would've booked a different cabin. Read more

I am sorry that you had so much difficulty with the steep driveway and number of stairs in the cabin you reserved! We do have some cabins that are "handicap friendly", that may have worked out better for your parents. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, otherwise. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your visit. I look forward to your next stay with us!

Ease of access to Gatlinburg and the National Park is the most attractive aspect of Bearfoot Lodge. Multiple nearby bear sightings was a massive bonus.

My family loved this lodge. It was near everything we wanted to do around the smokies, gatlinburg and pigeon forge. Inside was just great, clean,and had a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were separate from each other and baths for each. We loved it. The road entrance was scary. Had to be careful. Many Thanks To The Owners for giving us the pleasure of enjoying such a wonderful home. Read more

It was wonderful, everything was great, we get to meet real black bear, he came to get some barbecue but we block the entrance and shoo him away,it was most exiting experience of all. My profession is construction and remodeling, I suggest to pay attention to light bulbs on the property, the outside lights with motion sensors only one out 8 is good rest of the bulbs long gone, if they were all good we would spot a bear a lot earlier not 8 feet away from barbecue pit ( but it was a great adrenalin rush :), and the other thing you guys need to do something about carpenters bees, they're a lot of bees damage and pilings of saw dust. And also outside hot tub turns on by itself unless you disconnect the breaker, looks like main board needs to be replaced.Also few chairs in the kitchen bolts needs tightening( I did best by hand , did take my screw driver).
Thank you for everything, we will come again one day. Read more

Directions on the map were incorrect; upstairs bedroom door kept locking when pushed up against closet door. Door closed on its check out instructions, (time to leave, procedures, etc...) were given. Over all cabin was great and we all enjoyed our stay. Read more

The cabin was clean and beautiful but the remote batteries were dead, the heat only worked on 1 half of the house, and the driveway was in a horrible location.
The customer service was not all that great. Scott was nice, but the woman was rude for customer service.
We were told we could pay 1/2 down and 1/2 upon arrival and got a call for the 2nd half a week before we went there. We paid the 2nd half by phone when they called and asked for it and they called back the next day and told us we needed to pay after we already had. I guess they didnt check before they called the 2nd time to see that we had already paid it.

Thank you for your review. We have a first name and generic cabin description to go by here, so it is difficult for us to find out where this review is coming from. We are glad you enjoyed the cabin, and we would have been happy to send maintenance out for the remote and heat. We apologize for any ill feelings, and we would love an opportunity to satisfy you on a future stay.
