"The cabin was as described except the king mattress is incredibly broken and extremely noisy (your partner will wake you when they roll over). The dishes were dirty and the lack of hardly any basics such as dish detergent, toilet paper, trash bags, coffee filters, etc are why. We flew to TN from out of state and was shocked there was no hair dryer anywhere. I found it insulting that they expected me to pack that for the airplane when places like a Motel 6 provide something so simple as that. We did have one situation where we returned to the cabin and a worker was about to paint the railings but after we explained we were staying there he quickly left and said they told him it was vacant. Overall the cabin was nice except the outrageous mattress, but I don't know if I would stay with Elk Springs again because of the lack of basics. You pay the same each night, but you only get enough supplies for one and you need to remember to pack a hair dryer (and a mattress)."

"We rented this Cabin for a week vacation for our family, It was very clean, and very welcoming. The first night we even had a Mother Bear and some cubs show up that we got to view up close. Minimal contact with staff as most everything was handled through Email/Text. But the staff I did talk to were all very friendly and professional. My family will be repeat customers in the future with Elk Springs, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to book a Cabin in Gatlinburg and the surrounding areas. It is located just a few minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, and a Food City Grocery store is even closer."

"The pictures on the website must have been taken when the cabin was new as there are no longer any mountain views due to trees blocking the views, which we understand but you should change your pictures as that was one of the reasons we rented this cabin. The pictures of the inside of the cabin don't represent what the cabin looks like today either. It's very dated and not the cleanest place we've ever stayed. The one chair was filthy dirty and no one would dare sit in it. We had contacted the office a week before explaining that we would be coming from Wears Valley as we had stayed there for a family reunion and checked out that morning and could we check in to your cabin earlier. They assured us that wouldn't be a problem. However, on the day of check in we got a text saying we couldn't check in until 4: 30. We do want to mention that the grill was out of propane and they sent a maintenance guy right away and he was great."

"Overall we had a good stay. Not sure I would rent this exact location again. Some attention to details are missed. The flooring, rugs and carpet needs a good deep clean. Carpet in bedrooms felt almost sticky. I know the listing stated the hot tub was drained in-between each rental but we were bummed we had an hour delay for a check in and still had to wait about three hours for it to warm up.
I'm aware as a rental you can't have the best of the best but things in the cabin felt cheap and worn, dish clothes, towels, chairs in the living room. Rugs were really gross looking. Cobwebs outside on the lights could be taken care of quickly but they weren't. Overall we still had a good time and really enjoyed the pool table!"

The pool table and the hot tub were big hits with my grandchildren. I received a call the next day to make sure everything was ok.

"Reserving and checking into the cabin was very easy. We found the cabin with no issues and it was very beautiful. When getting ready to eat, my in-laws were getting dishes out of the cabinets and found visible dried, stuck food on the plates and forks. We also found used coffee grounds and filter in the coffee maker from whomever stayed there last. There were half eaten candy bars in the closets, under the bed, and potato chip crumbs in the upstairs bedroom. Many of the electrical outlets in the kitchen did not work. Customer service was notified about the cleanliness, they offered for the cleaning crew to come back out, but it was not necessary since we spent two hours of our first night washing dishes and cleaning the cabin. Checking out was simple and quick. During the checkout process I did let them know about the kitchen outlets. I would recommend this property to a friend, AS LONG AS it is cleaned properly. "

For example we bought ice cream for our kids and it melted after being in the freezer for some time. Second there are some pretty nasty stains on the main level bed that might require a mattress cover or something. Third, the hot needed some maintenance with a few jets I believe.

"The cabin is fairly secluded on the hillside with only 2 neighboring cabins. The firepit looks awesome although we didn't have time to use it. All in all, this is a nice cabin, looked clean, and served our purposes well. I brought my son and two of his friends down for a weekend adventure. We actually had a larger cub come up to the porch which I captured on video. The only issue worth mentioning was with the hot tub. We were unable to use it as it appeared to have lost its prime and would not function. I'm sure the service dept. for the rental would have fixed it but we only stayed for a few nights. I would certainly advise taking 20 minutes to test everything wherever you stay to maximize your enjoyment during your stay. The master bedroom suite was nice and had blackout curtains, and a large closet. There are two A/C systems which maintained a comfortable temperature in early July. The cabin is an easy 15-20 min. drive from the park with food options on the way."

However, the cabin was clean enough, comfortable and in a convenient location. While I recognize that the turnover at rental properties poses a risk to the owners, the several signs taped to walls warning of potential extra charges to credit card (e. g. for not using hot pads, not putting "trash" in toilets and turning A/C too low, was off-putting to guests who respect others' property. To protect my own interests, I alerted management to the deficiencies to document that we were not responsible. They offered to send maintenance, but with just a three-day-stay, it did not seem worth the intrusion. I would recommend Elk Springs in general, just not this particular property."

"The cabin is beautiful but there were alot of flies in the upstairs bedroom (alive and dead). Also the picture on the website was misleading. Overall the distance was great from the Gatlinburg stores."

"Life's a Bear is a beautiful cabin in the mountains, but close to Gatlinburg so we could enjoy the restaurants, quaint shops and everything else this lovely town has to offer. We really loved our stay there and would definitely go back for another visit."

"Overall great experience. We would stay again. Cabin was very clean. Everything was like new. Great location. If I had one thing to mention is they clear the cob webs on the deck. There were several cob webs and HUGE spiders at the entry of cabin. Everything else was fantastic"

"Our stay was fine. The staff worked with me to find a property which could accommodate my vehicles, which I appreciated. If you can, I would trim the growth near the drive to Brigadoone (not your property, I know) because it has completely cut off the mountain view from Life's a Bear. We were sad not to be able to sit outside and enjoy the spectacular view promised on your website."

"We loved the cabin. It was nice clean and
Very spacious. However, the bed upstairs was horrible. The mattress kept sinking i the middle. We would have stayed an extra night due to the mattress, we left. please purchase a new mattress."

"Cabin was clean good location, views were ok not as good as other cabins in that area. Bedrooms had carpet, would have not wanted carpet. Needs new bed mattress upstairs both sides slanted down. T V's need updating and Kitchen has very few gadgets and pots."

"Good: The cabin was spacious and clean. We enjoyed the proximity of the cabin to the attractions in Gatlinburg and surrounding area.

Bad: We experienced several problems before and at arrival. First, our cabin was not ready on time. Second, several maintenance issues further delayed our enjoyment of the cabin as resort personnel attempted to remedy the problems: 1) The televisions were not operable. 2) A light was not working in the bathroom - something the clean-up crew should have noticed. 3) The hot tub, one of the significant reasons for choosing this cabin, did not work for two days though promises were made it would work by day 2. No compensation was offered for these inconveniences."

"The cabin was nice and neat but there were many light bulbs that weren't working. Even after calling the first day to tell the office, they replaced some but not all of the bulbs that were out. Also, we didn't get the text to check in until 3: 43 and we were expecting to be able to check in at 3: 00 at the latest."
