Rest, relax, rejuvenate, repeat!!! Our family had a "beary" special time at "Beary Special." We were greeted at our late arrival by Joe, the friendly security guard who personally led us up the dark winding roads to our cabin-Thanks! We woke to amazing views that could be seen from almost every room of the cabin. Beary Special was roomy, clean, well-appointed and perfect for fun times and quiet moments. The kids loved the upper level with the pool table, air hockey, hot tub, king-size bed and futon. It was a perfect escape for them, while the downstairs king master was perfect for the adults. The adults even got in on the fun "old school" style with the vintage 80's arcade game - Pac Man or Galiga anyone. The staff at Dollywood cabins always had a smile on their face and a "can-do" attitude. We appreciated their knowledge of the area and genuine enthusiasm for the Smokey Mountain area and it's people. We were able to spend a couple of days at Dollywood, a truly great, family fun spot, the Titanic Museum, and of course a little outlet shopping. We had excellent hospitality and yummy food and the apple Barn and Old Mill-mouth watering fritters at both places.
Our family will definitely return to this Rocky Mountain paradise!

The cabin and views were just the breath of fresh air I needed while my boys stayed occupied in the game room.
We will definitely be back!
A peaceful getaway and lots of great memories for the whole fami

We made a last minute decision to getaway for a few days to the Mountains. Our original plans were to go to Disney World, but we decided that we would rather go somewhere that we had never been. All of us were glad that we did! My parents who are both retired, my brother who is in his upper twenties, my 9 year-old son, and myself (upper 30's) all enjoyed ourselves beyond belief. The views were phenomenal, the amenities were fantastic, and Beary Special was gorgeous! The spiral staircase to the second floor could be tricky for smaller children, older adults, or disabled individuals due to the narrowness. The second floor is an open layout with the second king bed and the futon sharing the floor with the game room. If you are looking for extra privacy, this might be a problem. We just hung out like we did when we were younger and had "slumber parties" during our stay.
We enjoyed the use of the pool table and games. We enjoyed the balconies throughout the day. We loved the fireplaces! We visited in late January and we fortunate enough to see a little snow while we were there!
The location was great, and we felt like it was a home away from home.
We have all decided that this won't be our last trip to Beary Special and are planning a return visit in the near future. The people in the area were some of the friendliest people that we have run into. It was a sad morning when it was time to leave, we all wanted to extend our trip. Thank you Beary Special for the great memories and we will see you on our next trip! Read more
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Here at Dollywood Cabins we want your experience to be memorable, one worth repeating and we are glad to hear that you will be back again to see us.

Beary good time at Beary Special

I've been fortunate enough to have stayed at Beary Special prior to this visit. Dollywood Vactions are very accommodating - I've used other management companies and have had problems. We stayed somewhere else last year and were disappointed with problems in the cabin. We had no issues with our cabin and the amenities we received. It was exceptionally comfortable and clean. We used the hot tub and pool table every night. The only thing I could suggest to Dollywood Vacations that we would have appreciated a little more silver ware and cooking ware. Also the tv's were fine but a flat screen would have been better. Everything else and the views and service were spectacular!! See ya next year!!
Beary Special, Indeed!

Had a great time at this cabin. It has a fantastic view of the Smokies, espcially at sunrise. The cabin is set up so you have ample privacy around you. All the amenities are in great shape. We couldn't possibily use it all in the long weekend we were there! We will definitely use this cabin again on future trips!
I will say, the stairs to the 2nd level might be a little difficult to manage for older people or people with a disability. But the 2nd bedroom is on the main level and isn't a problem.

Very nice, well appointed cabin. The spiral stairs were a small issue and a few taller trees blocked the mountain view. The windows are not covered in the living areas making it very sunny. Drapes in the bedroom would be an improvement since we do not wish to wake at sun up while on vacation. We greatly enjoyed the cabin and our stay.
We'll Be Baaack!

Very nice getaway. Check-in packet and staff very helpful, beautiful area to visit. Cabin itself pretty nice, although would not recommend it for more than one couple, as upstairs "bedroom" is really a community play room with no privacy. Overall a fun weekend and we would recommend it it fully.
Comfort in the midst of chaos!

If my review title sounds a little odd it is because our vacation began with a bang as our car broke down on Veterans Blvd. before we even made it to the office at Dollywood Cabins to check-in on our first day! With car troubles plauging us in one form or another throughout our vacation stay our cabin, Beary Special, became a haven for relaxation as my mother took down time to read her books while my sons and I relaxed in the hot tub. The views were awesome, and the location was great for a family with young children as the resort park was just across the street and up a little ways so our boys could safely walk there and play together. The best part of all, though, was the hospitality and caring of the Dollywood Cabins staff! We thank them all for putting a smile on the faces of all in our family by giving us the opportunity to go to the Titanic Museum when we did not think our finances would allow for it with our unexpected vehicle expenses. Even our two boys (8 & 11) loved the museum as there is a great interactive childrens tour that brings the experience to life for them. We definitely recommend this to everyone. And of course, Dollywood and Splash Country were a hit as always for the family as were evenings spent in Gatlinburg to stroll the streets, listen to the live music, and enjoy a great meal at Calhoun's!! We didn't make it out to the National Park this go around, but there is always another year to enjoy this beautiful attraction as well.
Thank you all for turning what started as a vacation nightmare into a vacation to remember!

This is the second time we have stayed in this style of "Cabin". Great view, spacious rooms and plenty to do in doors and out. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed each night better than the previous. No describing waking up to the sound of water from a near by creek and the view of the mountains in front of you. Truly amazing!

We couldn't have been happier with the Berry Special cabin! We had all the comforts of home with the fun of vacation. One suggestion I would offer to others is be bring a crock pot. I threw everything into it in the morning, we left for the day's activities and returned to a yummy dinner with no fuss or the cost of going out with a family of 7. We loved and took full advantage of the "length of stay" passes at Dollywood. The views were really spectacular! There was even a very large playground right on our street that we didn't know would be there. Next time we come to Tennessee, there is no doubt that we will be staying in a Dollywood property. Thank you for such a wonderful vacation!

This year was our 3rd year of vacationing in the Smoky Mountains. However, It was even made more wonderful when we went with Dollywood Cabin rentals. The cabin was very very cozy and clean, and the view was outstanding. Especially waking up every morning and seeing the mountain from the patio window. The price itself was also outstanding. We were able to maintain the comfort of home life for a very resonable price! we plan on returning for a second time this year, and will make Dollywood Cabins our first choice!
Great for a big family

We loved the Beary Special cabin because of the games it had. The sit down arcade game, pool table, and air hockey was awesome. The hot tub and jacuzzi tub were nice too. The cabin was very clean. There was some trash outside in the woods from previous guests but other than that, no big complaints. We will surely go back.
The cabin and view was beautiful.

Wonderful Views of the mountains..

Check in service was excellent. They let us check in early.
The cabin was wonderful. Best location, we had privacy even though we were near other cabins. The upstairs really needs
blinds... I felt a little uncomfortable walking in my pj's.
The bedding had a feeling of not being all that clean.I'm use to staying in the Hampton chains with clean white bedding. If we went again I would bring my sheets and blankets. I'm kinda a clean freek...Overall a wonderful experance..

I stayed before in StarrCrest, Dollywood, w/great experience. On arrival I immediately realized the cabin was not up to par & requested an exchange to anything at any cost. They were fully booked and we spent our entire stay in BearySpecial. PigeonForge did not disappoint in a wonderful family vacation.
BearySpecial was indeed "special". Listed as a newer cabin, but having guest book entries dating back to 2005. 7 years of wear and tear have made this cabin outdated and in need of some downtime for repairs. 1. Tv had a line through the picture and the screen is missing 10-20% of it off the top or bottom depending on which time we turned it on ha. 2. The rocking chairs: worn & poorly cared for, lots splinters. 3. Hot tub functional, pieces broken. View from tub is entirety neighbor's cabin & 2nd cabin: no privacy. No window without view of neighbor. 4. "pub table" had chairs w/broken pieces at bottoms. Had to treat carefully so did not break further. 5. Sleeps 8, table sat 4 w/elbows close. 6. Upstairs bed is w/pooltable and <5' from futon that is supposed to sleep 2. 6. The back deck door broken into so many times it doesnt stay shut & is partially hanging from the door. 7. Front door didnt even work when we got there. Had to call and wait 20 minutes to come fix the door. 8. The shower door was broken in the only bathroom w/private bedroom. 9. The floor finish is in need of repair. Upstairs is cheap tap together fake flooring. Luxury rental? 10. One of the windows was broken (cracks across it). 11. Wooden railing upstairs outside is molding. etc.
For having spent almost 2k on lodging, we were very disappointed. While I have many fond memories of the area, I will be staying elsewhere next time.
Review has character and pic limit much more to say. Welcome to contact me. Review is accurate reflection of stay in July of '12. It is my sincere hope this cabin gets some TLC and lives up to her well rated past.

We enjoyed our stay in Beary Special at the Dollywood cabins. The place could have been a little cleaner..my white socks were gray after walking on the floor. However, the location was great and the cabin was fun.

The cabin was gorgous and all the big windows made you feel that you were outside in the trees. Need a little bit of improvement in the Wifi signal. Enjoyed decompressing and relaxing while soaking up the view. Read more
