- Here's What Past Guests Had to say about Bear Hug Cabin

- "The cabin is exactly what we expected from it's posting online and had everything we needed for us while we chilled for two days. We never left the cabin except to hike up to the top of the mountain." - Jim

- "Great experience with GSCR. They made booking and getting into our cabin a breeze! The Bear Hug Cabin was incredible! Amazing view, amazing city, and awesome hot tub!" - Johnnie

- "The staff (Cathie and Kelli) were very friendly and most helpful.  They were more than willing to answer all our questions and to assist with finding the cabin.  The instructions were very detailed and easy to follow. The cabin was everything we had hoped for.  The pictures on the website were true to form.  The only draw back was the road getting to the cabin.  There were a lot of pot holes causing the car to hit bottom.  I would have felt better if we had a four wheel drive vehicle. We wanted the feel of camping to enjoy the outdoors with the sunsets and sunrises and not be stuck in a hotel room. " - Edward

The quintessential weekend getaway. What a cozy cabin, will recommend it to friends 7 will return ourselves. Climbed Deep Creek trail and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Highlight of the weekend was an in-cabin couples massage from Avanti Mobile Spa. Can't wait to come back.

We came here on a Monday and played dominos and built a campfire and went in the hot tub. On Tuesday we went on the Smoky Mountain Express, white water rafting, and used the hot tub. We made a fire in the fire pit. On Wednesday we went hiking and to the gem museum and the Rose Creek Mine. On Thursday we went horseback riding and to the Museum of the Cherokee Indian.

"Beautiful view and beautiful cabin" This was a nice cabin to stay in. If you are looking for complete privacy, then this cabin may not be for you. There is a road and another cabin that overlooks the hot tub. We did love the size and comforts of the inside and the view was great, even in early april. Manager Response - May 24, 2013: Thank you, Robert, for taking the time to review Bear Hug Cabin. We are glad that you enjoyed the view at the cabin. Please keep us in mind for future vacations.

My husband and I chose to stay at a Bryson City cabin after a very hectic and rough 8 weeks of work. It was just what we needed. It was the perfect three days. We were on the side of a mountain and completely isolated. We awoke every morning to coffee on the porch watching the sunrise and spent the evening in the hot tub watching the sun set. We grilled, had a fire, and cooked smores. It was the perfect vacation to reconnect with eachother. We also spent a day on the trails in the Smoky Mountain park, jumped on the Smokey Railroad and drove up to Cherokee. We will be returning.

If you don't mind the drive up the mountain, and your looking for a private little get away. this is it. What a view. I shopped around for just the right place so I did the home work and this is definatley a place i would return to. 10 minutes from town. All you need is a little firewood for the outdoor fire pit and have 4 wheel drive. totally awesome. Jim & Mary Manager Repsonse - Jun 5, 2012: Thank you, Jim & Mary, for taking the time to review Bear Hug Cabin.

Nice clean well equipped cabin with view of Lake. Very pleasant with exception of visit by neighbor's ( owners, I believe of cabin just above the one we stayed in. One dog was very large. They came into the back yard while we were roasting weiners and marshmallows. They attempted to lick us and search for the food. I let them know in a nice way that we didn't want the company of the dogs. They removed them, but they came back several times. The owners of this cabin might want to finish the fence around the back and put a gate on the lower deck of the cabin. Manager Response 04/13/2012: Thank you, Allan, for taking the time to write a review. Those neighbors who spoke to you were not the owners of the property, despite what they may have lead you to believe. Unforunately, in this area leash laws are very limited and some people just let their dogs roam free. We'll let the actual owners of the property know about your suggestion for the gate and fence. We're glad that you enjoyed the cabin other than your unexpected visitors. Please keep us in mind for future vacations. As a repeat guest you will receive a 10% discount off any of our cabins.

We were very happy with our stay here. The cabin is cute and cozy. Tremendous view of the smokies. Relaxing porch. Only negative is the road up the mountain is a challenge to navigate. Easy to get lost.
