We had a great stay, the cabin was great and is located within minutes from everything. We even got to see 3 bears right outside our front door. Everything was "as advertised" and David/Gwen were very good to deal with. Thank you

The Bear Sanctuary was an amazing place to stay. I have never seen so many different colors and types of wood used together In one space, but it was beautiful. Above anything else, it was clean. Spic and span. It was a great home base as we went out to eat, hiked in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and shopped along Main Street in Gatlinburg. The only disappointment was that we didn’t see any bears.

Bear Sanctuary is a special place. It's a great place to spend time with family and reconnect and is conveniently 5 min from town. Thanks David!

Bear Sanctuary was the perfect cabin for our group. The cabin has spectacular indoor and outdoor spaces (open floor plan, king bedrooms, and three decks!) that are ideal for spending time together. David was a pleasure to deal with and even called a week before our stay to introduce himself and tell us about the cabin and surrounding area. We even got to see bears from the back deck! Our only regret is that we were only able to stay for one night. We will definitely be back.
