Everything was very nice and the cabin was beautiful. The location wasn’t too bad. I will say it was a little hard to find the road at night. But other then that the stay was everything we could ask for.

Perfect quiet getaway

We visited this cabin over Thanksgiving. It is a great choice, close to town but far enough to have quiet time. Clean, well kept, plenty of linens. Plenty of space for our family of 5.

Perfect hideaway

I visited this site in September on our honeymoon. It was absolutely perfect! The only thing I'd suggest would be to put a thin screen on the back porch. Due to time of year and bugs there was a lot amd we couldn't use the hot tub or porch at night. But using it in the morning was nice with the steam from tub and fog coming off the mountains. I still wouldn't trade it for anything. Absolutely amazing. Had a hard time leaving this peace of heaven!

Bareskin Romance

The view, location, and cabin was great. The only problems were the mattresses in the cabin were too cheap and hard. The mattresses killed our backs every night and sadly my back wasnt hurting before I laid on it. The other problem was the satellite had no channels, there was nothing on tv to watch in the evening time to wind down for bed.

A lovely retreat!

We visited this home labor day weekend 2017 and loved it! As an academic, it was very refreshing to disconnect since the reception isn't great here and there is no wifi. It allowed me to check out of student emails for the weekend! The view is quite wooded and private and beautiful, but there certainly aren't mountain views. The location is very convenient for travel to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. I would highly recommend this home!

Wifi would greatly help - there are certain Mobile providers with absolutely no network coverage in this cottage, do wifi is a must

Amazing stay!

I brought my children here on their first vacation and it was absolutely beautiful. Very clean and well kept. Secluded away for perfect privacy but so close to all of the main attractions in town. Absolutely would recommend to anyone looking for a gorgeous get away!

My spring break

It is very nice cabin. when we arrived, everything was prepared and clean. Also, it has nice view. One thing that I'd be improved is to add the Internet because also yhe signal of the cell phone for both (AT&T and t-mobile) is not available.

We just stayed in Bearskin Romance for the third time! We love the location and privacy this cabin provides. We cooked a few meals in the cabin and the kitchen had everything we needed to do that. The hot tub was our favorite feature as we started most of our days there and ended our same in the same place. Highly recommend this cabin!!!
