“Christmas 2013”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2014

The cabin was nice, little outdated but nice. My husband, two sons and their two friends stayed the week of Christmas. We had snow and it was beautiful. The only downside and reason I would not stay here again was the drive up to the cabin and the drive way was very steep and dangerous. Wish I had more of a warning. It was located right between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge which was great.

“Never again!”

First of all, let me say that american Patriot Getaways was a wonderful company to travel with. However, this cabin is in serious need of repairs, maintenance and updates. I don't even know where to begin... Our family of four visited for the Thanksgiving week. The location wasn't bad but it's very hard to find the cabin and then you have to drive past it to back into the driveway because of how the driveway is situated. The driveway was so narrow and difficult to get into. The porch was very slippery and desperately in need of a good pressure washing! You walk into the bottom floor (which has no heat, by the way. Or if it does, it never worked while we were there) and then have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the main level. Very inconvenient for all your luggage, bags, etc. There is absolutely no view out the back of the house. And, out the front, you look at the road. There was a broken light fixture hanging from the overhead ceiling fan/light. The kitchen counter was cracked. The floors were dirty and scratched. When I swept them, there was no dustpan available for use. The floors by all the outside doors were cracked and rotted looking. The electrical outlets kept working and then not working at random times. It took forever to figure out the main TV and the directions on how to use it are wrong. So, we finally figured that out on day two! The master bathroom had a countertop the would hold maybe two items. So, we all shared the upstairs bathroom in order to have enough space. There was no trash service the week we were there. We were overflowing with trash by the time we left! This was listed as a deluxe rental and I don't feel that is true at all! Would definitely stay with aPG again but never in this cabin. I have reported all this to aPG so that hopefully, no one will have our same experience.

This is our third trip to TN with american Patriot Getaways...and, as always, it was a great experience. I would recommend these cabins (small or large group) to anyone. Thanks for always making our stay memorable!

“Rent this one!!!”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2013

This was the first time we'd ever rented a cabin in the Smoky Mountains...and we were not sorry with our choice. Very clean. Nearly fully real need to bring any of your own dishes. Plenty of linens. Nice fireplace in the living room. Hot tub was great. Did not even realize a couple of cabins were as close as they were in the daylight. Very conveniently located between Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg. Not too far up the mountain. Just rent it. Stop thinking about it & do it!

“This cabin is an "amazing, home away from home"!”

The Big Bear Cub House is an awesome cabin for relaxation, as well as family fun & entertainment. It has 3 differnet decks for different interests. You can sit out on the deck for grilling, using the hot tub, or if you jus want to relax in the rockers on back deck & listen to the water from the stream below. It has a pool table & card/game table as well. I think it's a great cabin for all types.. (families or couples). Its located minutes from Dollywood, as well as many different shopping venues & restaurants. The american Patriot staff was always friendly & helpful. We had a problwm with one of the Tv's & reported the problem. a tech was sent out very promptly. My family would love to stay at the same cabin each time we're visiting the Smoky Mtns in TN. Its like a nice vaction "away" with all the amenities of "home". My husband was surprisingly impressed with the whole cabin. Really enjoyed staying there.

“Fantastic!!! Cannot Wait To Return”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2013

The cabin was fantastic!! Private setting, very clean, well maintained. I read the reviews before going and was a little concerned about some of the comments on the driveway, But I had no problems at all getting in or out of the drive. The hot tub was great. There are lots of games and other things located inside the cabin to keep you busy. It is a short drive to town if you want to go out to eat or local places do deliver to the cabins which was awesome!! This is a must see type of place for all ages. Couples, family, children friendly. We cannot wait to go again. Thank you so much, We had a wonderful time.

“No view at all, not quite too many cabins around in one area.”

This would have been our fourth time to rent a cabin from american Patroit. We never had a problem until we rented this time. I always call and make reservation over the phone because I want to be sure of what we are renting. We like a private location with not too many other cabins around. We decide to go luxury on the cabin this time, and was excited about the trip. They knew what we wanted and when we got there it wasn't anything what we wanted you could hear the people talking from the other cabins, and the hot tub was facing the road and the other cabins, no view at all no yard the drive way tore the under neath of my car. I call american Patroit to see if we could change cabins and they were very rude. So we went to the office to speak to a manger and the to girls that was there wouldn't let me talk to a manger and said sorry there is nothing we can do, we was willing to pay extra as well. I started to cry because we made a long trip to get there and I told them I wasn't coming back(as if they cared!!!) and we went back to the car and when I looked backed the girls was pointing at me laughing. American Patroit has a Facebook page ,so I went on there and comment. Then I had there attention, and they changed me to a different cabin that was lower quality for a extra $45.00 but we was satisfied with that cabin. It was ashamed we wasted two days dealing with this when they could have done this in the first place. We never had a problem until this time, but as far as us we will not be renting cabins from them. Don't know where we will rent from any suggestions?? But we do love the smokiest mtns.

“Cabin is pretty”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2012

We were shocked to see that there were roaches in the cabin. We had to bag everything up and put on the table and rinse all the dishes before eating from them. It would have been nice to have received somewhat of a refund but wasn't even offered to us. This was our honeymoon. The drive way was hard to get into. We had to go up to the next drive and turn around to get into ours.

“It was awesome.”

My wife and I recently visited the smokey's for our 1 year anniversary. The big bear cub house met and exceeded all expectations I could've had. We had a blast and american patriot getaways made it super easy. Will definitely be going back.
