“Great Accomodations and Beautiful area”

The pictures and review of Bear Skye were very accurate. Top shelf cabin. The dishwasher was broken but they advised at check in and the maintenance man came in and replaced it just after we arrived. The only thing that could be improved if it is possible would be to cut down a couple trees so there is a clearer view off the back decks. Everything was amazing. All of us (my 9 yr old daughter, 11 yr old son, my GF and her 16 yr old son) really enjoyed the accomodations and the activities in the area. We hiked; went tubing in Little Pigeon river; went whitewater rafting with Smoky Mtn Outdoors on upper Pigeon river; and went Ziplining with Climbworks. All were excellent except the water level was too low for heavier people the day we went river tubing. Our guides were excellent at Climbworks as was Amelia on our rafting trip

“Sweet Cabin”

We really enjoyed our stay at Bear Skye Cabin. I cancelled all dinner reservations upon arrival because the cabin lends itself quite nicely to relaxing nights in. Between the well equipped kitchen, grill and hot tub, we didn't feel like leaving after long days hiking. Tip: We stocked up at Whole Foods prior to arrival and I am so glad we did as the one grocery store in town did not have much of a prime meat or organic selection. The cabin was clean, comfortable and adorable. My parents are traveling to Gatlinburg in a few weeks and my mom was bemoaning the lack of well rated cabin management companies. I feel very lucky that we booked in time to stay at Bear Skye. Mr. Crum runs a tight ship and it makes all the difference. Perfect cabin for our little weekend getaway.

“Great cabin for holiday trip!”

We booked this cabin for a Thanksgiving weekend trip, Wednesday - Sunday, and loved it. We were blessed to have snow for our first white Thanksgiving. Cabin is located where it is easy to get to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The directions sent by the owner, Mr. Crum, were perfect and despite mountain roads, if you have a good sense of direction you will be fine getting back and forth. The property was nice, quiet and had great views. The full kitchen is a plus. I would say the only downside for us is the hot tub did not get hot at all, not even warm. I know the controls aren't rocket ship controls, so I guess the heater element just was not up to snuff. We will stay here again if not at the other great cabins in the area. I really liked the key-code entry system instead of worrying about keeping up with a key. The cabin also had very fast Wi-Fi in my opinion. There was no shovel for the snow and when I called the required maintenance person, he seemed not to be interested in helping and told me to call the owner. This was a bit of an issue because of needing to clear snow for two 70+ year olds to get in and out of the cabin safely. I was notified by the owner shovels had been purchased and must have been "borrowed" by neighboring cabins if we couldn't find them. We cleared the snow ourselves, but I really think maintenance should have come right out to help us (and the roads weren't bad at all so that wasn't it). But overall we loved this place. I highly recommend it to anyone.

We were looking for a cabin to spend a few days in during our visit to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. This cabin exceeded all our expectations! This is a beautiful cabin that is very well taken care of and clean. The furnishings in the cabin are beautiful, very comfortable and "rustic". We loved the game room in the cabin with the Pool Table and other games. The hot tub out on the back deck was perfect and the views are superb. The views make you feel like you are staying in a big, beautiful tree house! The upstairs master suite is perfect - it's very large and roomy with a wonderful King size bed and the bedroom downstairs is convenient and cozy with a queen size bed. We enjoyed sitting on the deck off the master suite upstairs drinking coffee each morning. The owner was so easy to work with, and he was always quick to respond to our questions. I would highly recommend this cabin if you will be visiting the area. I'm sure we will be back!

The Bear Skye cabin is a perfect place to relax. Excellent accommodations, everything needed to enjoy is provided. It is a very comfortable place and the owner, Randall, is very responsive to any need. Walking around the neighborhood is fun. The hot tub and whirlpool bath add to the enjoyment and relaxation. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more.
