My husband and I spent a couple nights in the two bedroom cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations. The beds were super comfortable. The cabin was very very clean. I would recommend this as a lazy getaway to read and recharge your soul;)

This is our new weekend getaway. Beautiful place with wonderful food! Friendly helpful staff. The fireplaces both inside our room and outside the bistros were so nice. We enjoyed that so much. We definitely be back!

Without a doubt the nicest place to stay and eat dinner. Accommodations were the perfect from the hot tub on the back deck to the fire place. We stayed in the Doe Knob cabin....king size bed comfortable as well as the two over stiffed leather chairs in front of the fire place. Just wonderful. We will return.

After 2 nights on the trails in GSMNP, our stay at Dancing Bear Lodge was wonderful. We had the Rainbow Falls cabin and could not have asked for more. They provide a wonderful breakfast in the cabin including yogurt, house-made granola (delicious), fruit, coffee and orange juice. The bathrooms are quite large and the bed was ridiculously comfortable. We also...

Solo trip to Townsend and stayed at the Evergreen Cabin. It was perfect! The king-sized feather bed was so comfortable, the room was clean and the perfect place to unwind after a day in the mountains. Garden tub and free wi-fi added to the very nice accommodations. Will most definitely stay again.

We had a three night stay at the Dancing Bear Lodge using it as a base to explore the Great Smoky Mountains. Accommodation was excellent; large, clean cabin, very comfortable beds. The location was great for exploring Cades Cove and convenient for other day hikes in the park and also a visit to Pigeon Forge. A particular highlight was the...

I decided we should stay here on our visit to Gatlinburg after my husband told me Gatlinburg was a crowded, noisy, touristy place. I was looking for a place where I could have quiet, relaxation and natural beauty. I chose very well! In addition, the bistro has excellent food and a lovely staff. Our cabin had lots of windows for...

We arrived in around 8:30 after a 24 drive & ran right to the resturant. From the moment we arrived we were in heaven. From the community camp fire with a Smores Station... to the stunningly lit & airy resturany, we were blown away. Our Pet friendly cabin was breathtaking. It was obvious that its a newly remodeled room &...
