Great place

Jul 6th, 2020

We booked this place for price, location, parking, and it's just a great place. Friendly staff. We took our motorcycle with us, we could park it under the hotel, out of the rain. We went down to the fire pit's every night after we got back from exploring, we meet a lot of good people. We will stay here again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Pictures are deceiving

Jul 5th, 2020

We booked this hotel based on the pictures and reviews. Pros: Nice large rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking is good. Easy access to the strip. Within a block of the forest. Cons: We did come during covid restrictions, so no breakfast or housecleaning, but we knew before we came. Wish price hadn’t been so high since we didn’t get those perks. Staff was good to give us towels and such when we asked though. After seeing the pictures of the pool, we thought it would be large and a good area. Wrong. Pool is very small. 5 people in it would be crowded. And as for the lazy river, it is very small also (probably no bigger than the size of a large SUV). That was a disappointment as my daughters wanted to swim a lot. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

First Time Visit to Gaitinburg

Jun 30th, 2020

My spouse and I spent three nights at the Bearskin Lodge in mid-June. As others have posted, with the Covid practices being followed their was no breakfast or housekeeping. The one negative with no breakfast is that you then need to find a place to eat. Given how crowded the town was and with restaurants having their own social distance rules, that can take up a good portion of your morning if you don't get an early start. We found that just shopping for breakfast items at the Food City about 3 miles out of town worked best for us. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay. The room was beautiful if a bit dark with the lighting provided. WiFi worked well. The pool area was very small, but good enough. One complaint is they allow people to smoke by the pool. The hotel location is great for quick access to the GSM. There is a very nice trail just a short distance from the hotel. While we loved the hotel and GSMNP, the town was just too crowded. It was wall to wall people. If you are concerned about Covid, take that into consideration if planning a trip. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Nice Hotel Great location

Jun 20th, 2020

Hotel is at end of the main strip and sits back off parkway so a little quieter, but still very short walk to restaurants. Very nice rooms, river view rooms over look small stream. Small but nice pool with propane heaters. Staff very helpful and friendly especially George. would return TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Still our favorite Gatlinburg hotel

Jun 17th, 2020

Arrived on Saturday and was just as impressed as last year. Love all of the front desk staff but George really went out of his way for us and made us feel special. We will definitely come back to this place next time we come back Will definitely recommend to others. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
