Reviews for Black Bear Retreat

  • "Very prompt with questions. Check in and out were extremely easy and the house itself was beautiful!"

  • "It was amazing. This was our 2nd year and we stayed in a different cabin and both have been absolutely amazing. We take our entire family about 20 of us and just relax and enjoy each others company. Last year we went and did our Christmas there had a passing party the cabin was full of Christmas decorations it was so nice. This year we did Thanksgiving and cooked dinner and all. I would recommend to anyone. Look forward to our next trip which we are already planning."

  • "We used this cabin for my Bachelorette party. It was pretty close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There were enough beds for us all to sleep comfortably. Downstairs is a great place to hang out with everyone. The check in and checkout process was super simple and stress free."

  • "The vacation at this cabin was amazing everything was awesome. My family didn’t won’t to leave. Must visit this cabin again in the future. Thanks for a great experience. It was a great birthday gift to myself.🥳😀"

  • "We enjoyed the house very much. Location was slightly inaccurate. House is not in Seiverville but is in National Forest near Gatlinburg. Still excellent location. Loved game room and hot tub especially. Perfect for large family trip. We had 11 and everyone was comfortable! Beautiful home."

  • "Excellent stay with this company. Excellent communication skills and easy and convenient check in and check out process. Very prompt with small maintenance issue as well."

  • "Everything went great! We had a smooth check in and stay. Perfect for families with kiddos. Thank you for your hospitality!"

  • "My son in law planned this trip to Tennessee and found Cabins for You! It is a vacation our family will never forget! The Cabin was gorgeous and perfect for our family of 10! My mom is elderly and has a hard time getting around, but not in this home away from home! We will definitely be seeking out Cains For You in the future! From the decks, hot tub, game room, spacious bedroom and well appointed kitchen it was a gem! Memories are so important, don't be afraid to book this one!"

  • "They have beautiful cabins in the Smoky Mountains and their website is very easy to use to rent cabins."

  • "The house was in the mountains and it was very large and accommodating for all 8 of us! The game room was a big hit for all the kids and we loved the second level porch to sit and relax every morning and evening. The only downside was the garbage was stacked quite high in the garage when we arrived and the smell was awful. Otherwise I would highly recommend this beautiful rental!"

  • "It was a beautiful cabin, very clean. Great views and easy to find. Spacious and lots to do in the cabin."

  • "Really enjoyed my time here at this cabin . I look forward to booking this place again next year !!"
