We had an Amazing Time

We had an amazing time at Bear Foot Lodge. Everything that was in the pictures or listed on the website is exactly what we got. Not to mention Pat is AWESOME! She followed up with me throughout the whole process and checked on us after the storm. We definitely plan on staying again! Thanks Pat!

Thank you for this heart felt Review, Whitney. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself and members of your group finally got a cabin experience in the Smoky Mountains. I look forward to hearing from you for your future visits. Take care.

Exactly as described, incredibly clean

The cabin is exactly as described on site. It was incredibly clean. There was all of the appropriate kitchen supplies: dishes, glasses, wine glasses, pots and pans etc that anyone could need. The grill is charcoal and in front of the cabin. If you need charcoal, there's a small market less than 2 min away. Everyone was very friendly, including guests of other cabins. Pat was always available. The communication was great and frequent, but not intrusive the upstairs bedroom got a little hot, but there were recommendations listed as to how to help with this. After my family left, my new husbands and I enjoyed the 2 balconies and down stairs pool table. All in all, I would go again in a heartbeat. Wonderful cabin and wonderful hostess. Thanks. Kristi

You have been such a great guest.   She was married while staying in my cabin and had guests in during her week stay. I have enjoyed her so much. Very responsive, polite and sent me photos of a leak I had in my hot tub to let me know.

Great Experience

The cabin was perfect for our 3 generations of family.  It was clean, nicely decorated.  The location was great.  Close to Pigeon Forge but not too close.

Cabin was Great

It was a little hard to get to the cabin in bigger vehicle but the cabin was great. Everything is updated and the beds were very comfortable.

Pat's Response:   Oh my goodness, we were watching the super bowl game and made the comment, "I hope our guests are enjoying the game in the big screen". The surround sound had to be a big plus to the game. We are happy you enjoyed your My Bearfoot Cabins stay in Bearfoot Lodge. We enjoyed being your host and always welcome excellent guests such as yourself. Pat and Don Kirchhoefer, owners

Clean, well decorated and spacious, 5 STARS

Cabin was clean and well decorated.  We had 8 adults and 4 kids and it as spacious for all of us.  We used the hot tub every night.  The game room was a great place to play pool and watch the super bowl.  We also made several meals in the cabin and had everything we needed to cook and bake.  We will be using this cabin again when in Pigeon Forge.

Pat's Response:
We truly enjoyed John's stay and his family while in Bearfoot Lodge.  They called and said the hot tub wasn't working, so my husband went over and flipped the circuit breaker.  They had fun at Ober Gatlinburg and enjoyed the area.  Thank you for allowing us to be your host, John.

Awesome Time at the Cabin

We had an awesome tine at the cabin.  So much to do in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.  The kids had so much to do at the cabin to keep them occupied.  Will definitely be back!

Great Cabin, Great Location

We had a wonderful time in this is a beautiful cabin with a great location. The cabin was spacious enough for our group of 10 adults. Well maintained and updated kitchen was a plus. I will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Thank you for this wonderful review. We are always thrilled when folks create memories in Bearfoot Lodge. Yes, we do our best to keep the kitchen up to date with new, higher end appliances, both large and small. I believe our crock pot has been on many picnics in the area, especially Metcalf Bottoms, which is only about 15 minutes from the cabin. Please stay in touch. We would enjoy being your host again. Pat and Don Kirchhoefer, owners.

A Breath of Fresh Air

What an absolute gem, this home away from home had something for everyone in our group.  We traveled with Grandparents, 40 somethings, young adults and teens.  Everyone commented on how the owners had thought of everything we could have possibly needed for our stay.  The owner, Pat, called to check on us mid-week which has never happened at ay location we've stayed.  The cabin was clean, beautifully furnished and in the sweltering heat we always felt comfortable and cool inside.  The view was wonderful.  We felt tucked away from the hustle/bustle but close enough to get to all of the attractions with ease.  This was our first trip to the Smoky Mountains and we will most definitely be returning.  If you are thinking about booking a trip, book this place NOW.

Oh my goodness, you have no idea how this review has made me feel  Happy and excited can't even come close.  We try her to think of everything a family and group of friends could eat in a home.  You have hit all the high points an owner of a vacation rental could ever hope for. Please know I am always here, and we would absolutely love to have you all return.  Please don't hesitate to tell your family and friends.  My Bearfoot Cabins can be found easily, and I look forward to hearing from you all very soon.   Thank you for choosing us, and thank you for this wonderful review.
