Tammy made our stay at the Black Bear Loft very comfortable. Beautiful view and was everything we hoped for our first visit to the area. The cabin was full of amenities that made it feel like home. Tammy is a wonderful hostess who saw to it we were settled in and was available if we needed anything. Thanks again, we look forward to coming back!
Our hosts were very accommodating as our guest list grew from 4 to 8. They switched us to this loft which had more than enough space. It was our dogs first vacation and they loved it. The views are scenic and all needs met. The loft is just the perfect amount away from everything yet close to everything. The climb to the loft is steep but the van managed yet couldn't make it to the Buddhist Temple at the top of the mountain. Some family members made it hiking and we're impressed with the view. I wish I knew in advance we could rent ATVs or golf carts for the week because they were sold out. We didn't get to everything on our list and would definitely plan another trip here. One thing strange, TN doesn't sell wine on Sundays but do sell beer so stock up.
So first off this place was absolutely amazing, the pictures do a great job of showing the place, but don't really do it justice as to how beautiful it is there. Privacy is not an issue here as you are pretty much secluded from everything else. It would be easy to not see the sights and to just remain at this cabin for our entire trip as it was a pleasure to get away from the "real world". The owners were fantastic and their communication was timely and beneficial.
You are about an hour or so away from the "touristy" things in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, which was nice actually as the drive to those locations was pleasant. We did take one day and book a ziplining and whitewater rafting excursion which was only about 15 minutes away down I-40, Wildwater was the company, they were awesome, I recommend this to anyone who is interested to do these activities. You also must go the Carver's Orchard and Applehouse Restaurant, it was fantastic and they have a nice little farmer's market there for fresh veggies and fruit. There is a Wal-Mart about 5 or 6 miles down the interstate which is nice to get your supplies at, so in your general area you can easily get things you need without having to go to far.
Overall, we had an absolutely amazing stay and would book here in a heartbeat again, it was a perfect vacation!!
Exceeded our expectations!! The cabin, the view, everything was just wonderful! We will definitely be booking this cabin again!
It was amazing! The cabin we rented was perfect for our family. It was very secluded and the view was amazing. We would recommend anyone staying and we will definitely stay again.
