We had an awesome time at a Bear's View. The cabin had a gorgeous view! The charm and character of the cabin was wonderful. We will return!
Spacious and Gorgeous View

This cabin has one of the best view that I've experience of all the cabins that I stayed in while staying in the Smokey Mountains. The cabin was also very spacious that accomodate three families during our visit. There were eight of us.
Not a luxury cabin but fine for a few days of peace and quite

Older cabin in need of some updates but quite with a nice view and fine for a few days. Daily rate is probably overpriced when compared to newer cabins around town but I would rent this cabin again. Steep drive up and down Ski Mountain but fine as long as you take your time. Jmh staff excellent as always. Had some buzz type noise go off in owner's closet and JMH staff took care of it with no problem.
A beautiful view and an excellent place to relax.

The home was well maintained and fully equipped with everything we needed. The hot tub was perfect with the mountain view all around us. The home was also very spacious; perfect for us.
Just what we expected!

This home was very comfortable and just as was portrayed on the website. It is on Ski Mountain, which is exactly where we wanted to be, and only about 5 min. into downtown Gatlinburg. We even saw a bear in the front yard on two occasions! The home was clean and amply supplied, everything worked, with a nice floor plan. That's not something we could say about some of the homes we have stayed in Gatlinburg, managed by other companies. We would gladly stay here again!

We recently took our 4 month old on her first family vacation and stayed here! We loved it! I felt the pictures online made it look dark and dirty, but we we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that it was perfectly clean and actually very open! Plenty of room for our family, 7 adults and my little girl! Liked that the upstairs bedrooms were far away from pool table so she could sleep! Enjoyed both decks! Especially the third floor deck during the mornings! Hot tub was clean! Saw 2 Papa Bears, 1 Momma Bear and Three cubs in our yard!!! The only thing was the altitude of the home was tough on our baby girls ears, but the view!!! We had a bit of a water leak while there but they were great to get someone right out to us! Definitely would go back!

Our stay was just plain awesome!!! The cabin had plenty of room for the nine of us. it was very clean and when the air messed up they sent someone out right away, even though it was past 10 pm. Everyone had fun and we will be renting from them again!!! Oh! we also saw a bear!!!

We had a wonderful time and the service was superb. We hope to make this a tradition. We were with our children and grandchildren and celebrated our Thanksgiving. The house is very very well stocked with dishes and cookware. We wanted for nothing to make our Thanksgiving dinner. We would stay at Bears View again. Thank you!

The house was great with plenty of room for our large family. We loved the view from the back deck and loved the proximity
to the local attractions.
Left on 08/02/2010 for a stay in July 2009 | Disappointed
Overall the stay was disappointing. It began with the overall appearance of the chalet. It is disappointing when renting a place to vacation and you arrive and it is dusty and looks like it was abandoned. When paying the amount of money to stay at a place like this and the deposits for cleaning the overall appearance should be in tip top shape. To add to the dirt and dust throughout the unit, we had a leaky hot tub and a leaky ceiling. We took action immediately to alert of the ceiling leak.
Then to top off the stay we had a window get broken. We took full responsibly to resolve the issue and alert management of the incident. Resolving the issue was a hassle. We immediately called and offered payment for the window. It took all day for someone to come board the window. Then when the repair was completed we get charged for the window and then bogus administration fees. It is absurd when we have paid the deposit and everything else to be charged fees on top of the repair. The way the whole thing was handled by management was a hassle when we supplied an immediate method of payment. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. The hot tub was replaced just a couple of weeks after your stay. Since the time when this review was received, the ceiling leak has been repaired and a deep clean completed. The processing fee was also explained in detail, but also refunded as an act of good faith. The guest has expressed their appreciated for our "excellent customer service", and hopes to return to stay again.
a real treasure

Beautiful house and view! We loved how all the rooms were decorated, and how spacious and inviting it was, both elegant & comfortable. It didn't feel like a "cookie cutter" chalet, like some of the other Gatlinburg rentals we've stayed in. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub looking out at the incredible view of the Smokies. We were 9 people, but never felt crowded at all.
Do know that the house is at the very top of a very steep hill - this makes for fabulous views, but also for a somewhat dizzying drive up & down!
We spent a lot of time exploring the national park, which is very close by, as is the town.

A bears view is a beautiful place to stay with all the amenities you need. Hot tub on the deck with a wonderful view. Make sure to have 4 wheel drive and a good map! If swimming is the thing you want to do within walking distance, this is not the place to stay. Not far is shopping to the max and any entertainment you are looking for. Much to do for kids if you have lots of money to spend.

We found everything to be clean, comfortable, modern, easy to live with, completely furnished to every detail, and a lot of fun. It was exactly as advertised. We had never done anything like that before and we were a bit skeptical, but we weren't disappointed!
It will be awhile before i come back to Gatlinburg

the home was nice although it could use some updating. The bathroom on the basement level needs to be completely sanitized and cleaned it had an awful smell of mildew and it had alot of mold.
i liked the view from the home and the black bears we spotted strolling by the most.
Thank you for your comments on A Bear's View. We are having that bathroom assessed today for a deep clean. We are sorry you had problems at all as we do everything we can to remedy situations as soon as we hear about them! Thanks again!

We stayed here for my parent's 50th anniversary and had a wonderful time. The location is great in back far enough to feel like your in the backwoods, but close to town. We sited a bear watching us unload our SUV when we arrived, and saw bear sitings daily and got great pictures! Of course not close up pics, though... Great weather and great cabin.
