We had a wonderful time on our 2nd trip to Bear Hug Cabin. We celebrated our 4th anniversary and our last vacation before our daughter is born. We spent so much time just relaxing on the porch, it was just what we needed. We hiked, road the train and picnicked. Just like our first time here, the cabin was the perfect cozy place to get back to at the end of the day. It has been a great trip.

We couldn't be happier with the cabin we chose. It was very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Not to mention the beautiful view. We did lots of hiking to waterfalls and up the mountains. We are already planning our next trip back. We couldn't have asked for a better home away from home.

WOW the great Smoky Mountains are nothing short of MAJESTIC. We went to the NOC for white water rafting. We went up the road to nowhere and hiked through the tunnel and saw so many butterflies. The pictures we have can not just do justice the beauty of this place. Bear hug is the perfect spot as it is clean, well equipped and cozy. The people of Bryson City are so friendly. We hope we can make our way back soon.

The Great Smoky Mountains. How great they are. This was my birthday gift from my fiance. he gave me the choice of anywhere and I chose the beautiful Bryson City. I am so glad that I did, nothing beats the views, tranquility and peacefulness. We were kept company by a cute dog while we were here. We enjoyed cooking out and the hot tub. We were able to watch the sunrise over the mountains while in the hot tub. So surreal. This trip has been amazing and we will be back.

We stayed her for 2 nights on a long trip from Shenendoah to Florida. The setting is lovely, the view is amazing, and the cabin is cozy and warm. Moonlit hot tubs and a cup of tea on the deck in the early morning sun were great. Hiked Noland Creek Trail which was peaceful, quiet and lots of swimming.

The team members were great. They helped tremendously from start to finish. They even called to check in on us that we made it up to the cabin ok. We absolutely loved it. The perfect romantic, weekend getaway! I honestly just searched on trip advisor for a cabin and when I saw the price and amenities of this cabin, I picked it. I will definitely be using Great Smokys Cabin Rentals again. We hiked different trails and looked for waterfalls and went to the casino. It was my 6 year wedding anniversary!

Any questions I had were easily answered in a timely manner either through email or phone call. Enjoyed the view and the hot tub. We grilled food everyday and had a total relaxing time in the cabin. The Bear Hug Cabin met everything we were looking for at a great rate. The only thing I would suggest is that the road leading to the cabin could really use a little patch work, such as putting some rock or clay in the giant holes that bottom out the cars going up and down.

Excellent. Unfortunately it rained up until our last night, but the cabin was so beautiful, and the breath taking view, we hardly noticed the weather. The weather didn't dampen our stay at all. Have stayed in other area cabins before, and was trying your site for the first time. Your cabin exceeded all expectations.

This cabin had the most charm of any we have stayed in. The Smoky Mountains is the greatest place on earth. The hot tub was a very warm place in the rain and sleet. This was my Christmas Gift from Mike and I couldn't have asked for anything more except sunshine. Every day we looked out on the porch and were an awe of the view.

Our trip to Bryson City was so perfect and the Bear Hug Cabin was the cherry on top. We came here for a belated honeymoon. We got married November 21st. Even though the trip was a little rainy it didn't damper the trip at all. Every night was so relaxing. We can't wait to come back.

Bear Hug Cabin is perfect for going to hiking and relaxing. It has a very nice view and was quiet. Hot tub was relaxing after hiking. The cabin was very clean too. Only problem was driveway. If you have a 4WD, you will be fine.

WE came to the Great Smoky Mountains for a peace filled celebration of the Saviors birth. First time with out the kids since they are all grown now. The cabin is an excellent place to retreat. Spent the week hiking Deep Creek Waterfalls, Alum Cove and Goldmine. We were surprised how close the national park is to Bryson City. It surrounded the cabin.

We came to Bryson City to elope. Everyone was so friendly at the courthouse. The cabin was so nice and cozy. We loved the hot tub and porch. Although we didn't see nay bears, we enjoyed how quiet it was at night. The cabin was wonderful. The road to nowhere is a must see.

This was exactly what we wanted for a long weekend getaway! It was cozy well equipped for staying in and just close enough to town. For our first trip together we couldn't have asked for a better one. The town was a perfect afternoon. We will definitely be back again for another break from it all.
