“Perfect Getaway!”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our family of nine (ages 3 - 60) enjoyed our stay, to say the least. The cabin is gorgeous, there is PLENTY of space - we had 5 kids in our party and they all had a great time. They loved the pool and movie room - we could hardly get them to leave. The bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The shower was really nice, too. The kids (and adults!) loved the arcade games and pool table. I didn't get a chance to enjoy the hot tub but those who did, enjoyed it. There are three balconies overlooking the woods - we didn't see any animals but it was still pretty. We cooked a few meals here and found the kitchen to be well stocked. The kids also loved the Christmas tree. We will definitely stay again if we ever come back. It was a great place to enjoy the National Park.

“They canceled at last minute”
Reviewed 3 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Left us high and dry. We booked in October 2016 to vacation in March 2017. 5hrs into our 8hr drive to start our vacation we got a phone call. Owner canceled. Said pool wasn't working and problems with other things. Yeah , right. Sounds to me like the owner wanted the place to himself. Thanks but no thanks .

Dear hansendiamondinr2017,

On behalf of the staff, management, and myself, please accept our sincerest apologies for the issues you encountered with us. We wish to assure you that this is certainly not our typical guests’ experience. Your comments are very important to us. We always want to exceed your expectations and make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. The cabin was being renovated with new vanities, carpet, railings and fresh stain and had not been completed by the date we were given. When the cleaners arrived to inspect the home, they found the home nowhere close to being habitable. We did offer you another, larger home and to pay for swimming passes during your stay, but that offer was declined. We hope that you give us the opportunity to show you a much better experience on a future stay.

Yours in hospitality,
Amy P

“Lots of Potential”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

people found this review helpful

We primarily chose this home over less expensive cabins for it's indoor heated pool and large bedrooms with king-sized beds. However, we were sadly disappointed that the pool would not be usable after spending much of my beloved vacation time trying to get the heater working and dealing with Wyndham staff trying to get a professional to come out. This really put a damper on our experience. The staff was very nice though, I have a feeling it has been out for quite a while and they have no intention of fixing it due to the added cost of running the pool heater.
The house also has only about half of the kitchen chairs you see in the pictures and the few kitchenwares available are of very poor quality. There are too many good owner operated cabins out there to go with another Wyndham.

Dear Barton L,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with the feedback from your stay at Beary Dee-Lightful. We are disappointed that you experienced issues during your visit and apologize that they impacted your stay. Your reporting of the pool heater malfunction was our first notification of the problem. It is important for us to ensure that the properties on our program are in their best possible condition for our guests and I apologize that we fell short on not having some of these issues identified and fixed prior to your stay. We are working closely with the homeowner to correct these issues. We hope to have the opportunity to accommodate you again during a future visit to the Smokies so that you will see that your visit with us just now is not the norm for our guests.

Excellent place to stay. Rooms were very spacious and there is plenty of space to spread out. Would definitely rent again if we were in the area again
