Family Tradition Reviews
Clean and Comfortable
I found the cabin to be clean and comfortable. Also, a plus was that it wasn't far from the parkway. My family really enjoyed their stay. Thank you.

Cabin was Wonderful!
Family Tradition Cabin was wonderful! The layout was perfect for our get together with our family, ages 50 plus, teenagers and a 10 year old. The pool table, game room and two bedrooms that were all downstairs were perfect.... the kids could stay up all night without disturbing anyone else who was trying to sleep. The hot tub looked brand new, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, pans, dishes, paper towels, dishwashing liquid. We loved the seclusion of the cabin and the neighborhood, but that it wasreally close to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood but not in the middle of all that crazy congestion and traffic. The stores at the end of the road ( jeep store, General Store and Pizza place) had everything we needed for our four night/five day stay. The GeneralStore was wonderful and the prices were very reasonable. The Pizza place had great thin crust pizza though the wait was really long but we just went back to the cabin as we waited. The Cabin was super clean, we loved all the flat screen TVS to watch hockey and football. Would definitely return!

The cabin was super clean and well stocked
We loved Family Tradition Cabin and the neighborhood! The Cabin was super clean, as well as wellstocked with everything you needed in the kitchen, plus ample trashbags, paper towels and dishwashing liquid. The basement area with game room, pool table, Flat Screen TV with sound bar and two bedrooms was just perfect for our teenagers! They could stay up all night and not bother us older folks sleeping upstairs! The hot tub looked brand new and was nicely secluded from the neighbors. The location of the cabin appeared secluded but only ten minutes from Dollywood and the Parkway. But far away from all the congestion. We enjoyed driving right down the end of the road to the General Store which had everything we needed for our 4 night/5 day stay! Lots of jams, apple butter, local specialty coffee, bacon, etc. The Pizza place was also delicious but be prepared to have a long wait. We would definitely recommend this cabin to others and enjoyed Pat and all of her expertise with the area. She was very helpful! We give it FIVE STARS!

Far best cabin ever stayed in
This was our third annual cabin trip with our entire family. We stayed at Family Traditions. By far the best cabin we have ever stayed in. This was our first time renting from Pat and we will be back every year for sure. It was the cleanest we have ever seen. They had EVERYTHING we needed and more. Our whole family loved it!! Thank you so much!!

Exceeded our Expectations
My family really enjoyed our stay at Family Tradition! The cabin exceeded our expectations! The pictures don't do it justice. There was more than enough room for all 12 of us-5 kids & 7 adults. Will consider it again when we return!

Beautifully decorated, mountain views, large to accommodate our group
We went to Gatlinburg to celebrate my husbands birthday. I had the help of an Agent at Patriot Getaway to help in choosing a cabin.
The cabin is beautifully decorated and was large enough to accommodate 8 adults and 8 kids. What is very nice is the location.
Had the mountain views, but not so far up making it difficult to go back and forth to town. Will definetly stay here again .

Family Tradition is beautiful!
We recently rented one of Pat's cabines, Family Tradition, and it was beautiful! Enough room for everyone to be together, but perfect for those times you need a little "alone time". Looking forward to doing it again next year!!!!
Note: This is the second review from this guest. This one was posted on Facebook.
Thank you for this lovely review, Pat. I am changing property management companies, so make sure you use the website I have set up for the cabins to reserve. We will be staying at Family Tradition on Nov 1 and dr orating for Christmas. I think I'll have professional
Photos taken and put on the website. Please stay in touch.

Beyond our Expectations – 5 STARS
Price was a little steep for our single family, but the cabin & scenery were beyond our expectations. Loved having the rec. room upstairs with pool, air hockey, arcade games & massage chair. The views were fantastic & this is in a gated community with indoorpool & putt putt golf. We will be going back next year!

We LOVED it!
My husband and I took our son (5 & a half months) on his first vacation and stayed in your cabin last month and we LOVED it! We love the location and always stay in Bear Creek Crossing when we come up! It was out first time in your cabin, but we will be staying again! We have already started looking into our next trip. The cabin was very clean for the most part and we loved all of the different games and such your cabin had to offer. I enjoyed swinging on the back porch and relaxing in the hot tub. Thank you for opening up your cabin to us and we cant wait to come back!
Thank you for this great review!
We are leaving for Bearfoot Memories on Friday. We are replacing the futon in the loft with a queen sleeper sofa with memory foam and acquiring a new air hockey game. We are also buying some new deck furniture.
I will be deep cleaning the living room, kitchen and bathrooms.
We strive to think of our guests and all their needs, paying attention to detail.
We are moving to a new property management company, so please bookmark my personal website on the cabins. You will always be able to reserve directly on the site and also keep track of specials that are available.
Please stay in touch and don't forget to sign up for the seasonal newsletter on the website. It will contain a Calendar of Events fir each season.
Thank you for choosing Bearfoot Memories.

Pat's Response: Our fall has been particularly warm this year and the fall colors have stayed very strong for an extended period time. I'm sure that added to your enjoyment at Bearfoot Memories. We, too, are very thankful for the area and for guests like you who appreciate the time and effort we put into making the cabin as perfect as we can. We hope you can stay again very soon.

Overall great cabin. We loved the hot tub and the pool table. Could not get the lights on in the pool!! Therefore, we could not swim. We hope to be back soon!!

Pat's Response: Thank you for taking the time to make a review on Bearfoot Memories. We appreciate all reviews, even when there is a slight glitch. The indoor pool is operated by the resort. I did notify them the lights were not working and it appears the breaker had flipped and needed a new breaker. I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience. My phone number is inside the guest book and also the welcome book. When you stay again, if there are any questions or problems, please feel free to call me.
