grin abd bear it christmas

Our Christmas vacation was amazing. Grin and Bear It is a cute, cozy cabin. Glad I brought Christmas decor to make it seem like Christmas,though. The management company was attentive and prompt to repair fireplace and grill but couldn't fix ice maker. Was slightly disappointed at the lack of some kitchen necessitates like quality silverware and a full set of dishes and pots. Only found out I neede bowls, measuring cup, spaghetti pot were missing on Christmas eve and didn't know I could call the management company for them to bring to me even on Christmas. Family Dollar was close though. My bad. I'll know for next time. Overall we had a nice time!!!

None Given on 12/30/2017

great private location and beautiful cabin!

It was a get away for my 50th birthday. From the time I called to make my reservation to needing directions back to cabin, my boyfriend and I had a fabulous time. Cabin was beautiful and very clean and up to date. We spent time out in the days, but would relax in hot tub and in front of fireplace while in cabin. My boyfriend and I both give Grin & Bear It an A+, as well as the entire staff at Elk Springs Resort. We will definitely be back!

Laura K. on 02/10/2018

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such a special celebration, Laura. Happy Birthday! We are pleased that you and your boyfriend had such a great time.

grin & bear it

Overall we once again enjoyed our stay. Elk Springs is a reputable company to rent through!

Although we have booked through Elk Springs several times, this was the first cabin (Grin & Bear It) we stayed in that was on the resort property down off the mountain. The cabin itself was cozy and very clean. The yard was one of the reasons we chose this particular cabin, however we were disappointed when there really wasn't a yard. The picture is deceiving in that respect. We also were told the cabin is secluded. However, it is right next to and shares a driveway with another cabin. It was still quiet enough to enjoy evenings on the porch. Lastly, we had to launder towels 2-3 times during our stay, because there were only enough towels for each family member to shower once. Another set of towels would be appreciated for 3+ people.

Overall, we do highly recommend Elk Springs Resort and this cabin.

None Given on 06/18/2017

Thank you for providing us with your feedback regarding your recent stay at Grin and Bear It. We are pleased to hear that you did enjoy your stay and appreciate you sharing some areas in need of improvement with us. The photos are actual pictures taken at the cabin. In no way do we try to mislead our guests by misrepresenting the cabin you have chosen. However, it should have been listed as semi-secluded, as you do share a driveway with another cabin and can see other cabins from your front porch. The back deck and hot tub areas are private and hidden from the view of others. As for the towels, unfortunately, we are not able to provide daily linen service and it may be necessary for you to launder them as needed. We provide enough for the amount of guests each cabin sleeps. Most of our cabins are equipped with a washer/dryer and we even provide you with a box of laundry detergent! We hope to continue doing business with you in the future. As always, your review helps us to continually improve our services to our guests.

Now that you have experienced a 5 star stay with Elk Springs Resort, we hope you can plan a longer stay on a return trip in the future. There is so much to see and do here that you cannot possibly fit it all in with a two day stay. We do offer special discounts for extended stays and repeat guests. We sure hope you will be a guest of ours for many years to come and will take advantage of these awesome discounts.

a great place to relax and unwind in the wildness-with amenities!

This was our second time staying at an Elk's Spring Resort rental, and we were very satisfied with our stay. We loved the area. It was peaceful and private. We made a last minute reservation and we were able to to get a nice cabin. They provide you with basic starter toiletries and kitchen stuff but you will need to bring/buy additional supplies if your stay is 2 days or longer (coffee, cream, sugar, garbage bags, toilet paper, laundry det. and dryer sheets, dish detergent, foil, seran wrap, etc...We drove to Tennessee from Louisiana so we just brought these items from home. We bought "fresh" groceries from a store close by. We had to cut our trip short due to a "city wide" power outage from a bad storm that passed through. The management team handled our situation nicely-they offered to put us up in a hotel anywhere in the city until our power was restored. They also refunded us for 2 nights! I highly recommend Elk's Springs Cabins and we will visit with them again in the future.

ADIL J. on 05/21/2017

Thank you very much for the nice review. We certainly appreciate your business and how patient you were with us through the unusual windstorm and resulting 3 day power outage we had. Although we did not have any control over this Act of God, nor are we obligated to refund our guests, we wanted to ensure our guests' safety and satisfaction by offering them a refund if they went to a hotel that had power and running water. We are pleased that your overall cabin experience was great and we look forward to having you back for a future stay.

very private cabin.

Grin & Bear it is a very private cabin for a cabin in a community. The views are woodsy. One cannot see the mountains while there are leaves on the trees in this unit. However, it is a beautiful cabin. The hot tub is housed in its own shelter which adds to the privacy. The interior is in excellent condition and is well-maintained. We were very comfortable and pleased with our stay.

very clean and spacious

The cabin was up a steep little hill sitting off to the right. We loved it right away. It looks just as pictured! In the winter it may be difficult getting up the hill with snow... The inside is very clean and comfortable. Downtown Gatlinburg is only about a 10 minute drive. The cabin was large enough for the 5 of us and still had extra space. We will be staying here again.

None Given on 08/30/2016

Thank you for your wonderful review, Lashaundra! It is exciting to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. The roads on Elk Springs Resort are maintained in the winter time by us. This allows us to give our guests staying on the resort an advantage as they are salted and plowed during any weather event. With this being said, there may be short periods that you may enjoy a little extra family quality time in the cabin while we are allowing the salt to work it's magic. We definitely don't see that as a negative though! The winter months can be the most magical in our area. The natural beauty that emerges is truly extraordinary. We hope you will make plans to come back and visit with us again. Each season holds it's own beauty and we would love to help you experience it firsthand!

beautiful cabin and not too far from gatlinburg or pigeon forge

Interior pictures of the cabin were just as described. We were however surprised by the number of cabins and how close they were together. Property was very well kept and customer service from Elks Lodge was great (they checked in on us several times). Chad, who manages all grounds and cabin maintenance was extremely professional and polite (he had to come out late one evening to fix the A/C).

Thank you for your kind review, Chris. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We certainly agree, Grin & Bear It is a beautiful cabin in a great location. We offer a variety of cabins throughout the resort. The cabins that are located toward the end of the resort are spaced out a little more, offering a little more privacy. Please contact us when you are ready to start planning your next get-away. One of our experienced sales representatives will be happy to assist you in finding the perfect cabin for your next stay. We look forward to many more exceptional stays!

wasn't great but wasn't bad

Cabin was nice inside. Outside was disappointing there were spider webs and leaves all on the furniture outside. Plus a litter of kittens and cat that lives under the porch that kept climbing on vehicles. Luckily nobody was allergic to them and we are not cat people

ok stay

Cabin was nice and clean, nicely decorated. Bedrooms were very cramped. Sheets did not fit beds and came off of the mattress when we got into the bed. Seems like a minimal expense compared to nightly rate that we paid. Also, the quantity of dishes in the cabin was minimal. Be sure you take additional dishwasher tablets as they only leave you one. I have stayed in much nicer/better "stocked" accommodations (cabins) in Gatlinburg for less. Total after taxes, etc for two nights on weekend was 934.00.

We provide a starter supply of toilet tissue, paper towels, bath soap, facial soap, dishwasher tablet, dish washing liquid, laundry detergent, and trash bags.

friendly - clean - great location - but cabin is dated

Elk Springs Resort is A+ in customer service. They were always very pleasant over the phone from the time I made my reservation throughout my stay. Someone even called me a day into our vacation to make sure I was happy. The cabin was spotless. Beds were comfortable. However, the cabin seemed to me to be dated. The dark maroon living room furniture and green curtains needs an overhauling. And better looking towels and washcloths would make for more comfort and plushness. The hot tub seems to be several years old as well. Location was great.

Lisa D. on 04/12/2017

Thank you for your review, Lisa. Each one of our cabins are individually owned, but managed by Elk Springs Resort. The owners decide how to decorate their own cabins. However, if something is broken or damaged, Elk Springs does contact the owner for immediate replacement. Our towels and washcloths are replaced on a regular basis several times throughout the year. The hot tub is still functioning and it would be a great expense to the owner to replace it simply because it looks older. We pride ourselves in keeping all of our properties in excellent condition and have a great track record for our cabin cleanliness and customer service. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay overall and hope you will return for a future stay. I would encourage you to check out our many other luxury cabins available on our website. Perhaps one of our newly constructed pool cabins would suit your needs on your return visit.

We had an amazing time and the cabin was gorgeous! We were impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the cabin. It was a treat to have it equipped with games to play! I am only sad that due to weather we did not use the hot tub but next time for sure! It was fun to be close enough to the attractions of Gatlinburge to enjoy them and then be able to retreat to our cabin. Overall it was better than we had even hoped. Thank you!!

weekend get away with good friends

our cabin was absolutely beautiful. The only problem that I am going to mention is the fact when we walked into the downstairs bathroom there was dried Feces dried on the floor!!! I was shocked and it made me very uncomfortable, and made me wonder just how well the cabin had been cleaned before our arrival! When I called the office to complain they were very courteous and offered to come clean but I had taken care of it myself! That is something that could not wait!

The cabin was beautiful and very clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with all the basics but if you plan on cooking like a Cajun you need to bring a good pot and seasoning. The cabin was perfect if you plan on staying there a lot or don't mind driving a while to get to your excursions. It is a good ways from downtown but very peaceful. Don't forget your essentials it's not like a hotel where they come and clean or replace the towels and stuff daily. Loved the cabin had a great time.

two nights of horrible sleep!

It was extremely hot inside and even worse at night. Cats were everywhere outside and my daughter and husband are bo th allergic and had to stay inside. Not worth the money we paid. That was the most expensive cabin experience. We were all very miserable :(

Walter V. on 07/11/2015

We are very sorry to hear that you felt the cabin was too hot. An AC problem was reported by the owner who arrived after you checked out. It appears that your air conditioner unit was froze up and was low on freon. We wish you would have reported this during your stay. Maintenance was dispatched and had the problem resolved very quickly. As for the cats everywhere outside. There are a couple of cats that wander around the resort. Unfortunately, people have dropped them off and abandoned them. They have never been a nuisance, so we let them be. Again, if they were interfering with your stay, our staff would have come out to the cabin and shooed them away so you could enjoy your cabin experience. It is not our intention for our guests to feel miserable. We can't fix a problem that we are not made aware of. Once reported, we act quickly to resolve issues for the comfort of our guests.

grin & bear it cabin review

It's time to replace the leather furniture in this unit. The couch had a large rip on the back middle pillow that was attached to the of the couch frame. The leather chair had an large upholstery nail that was exposed from the back panel that is unsafe for children. The wood floors were very dirty, we couldn't walk in bare feet in this unit without getting extremely dirty feet!

This is a beautiful, comfortable cabin. Nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked, but bring your own can opener because theirs is rusted out! The location is good…far enough away to feel secluded, but close and convienent to town, shopping, groceries, etc.
Enjoyed the critter show at the Comedy Barn in Pigeon Forge, as well as the Hatfield and McCoy dinner theater.

The overall experience was great. There are a few house keeping issues.

We apologize for any inconveniences that you experienced and are glad you were able to overlook this and enjoy your vacation experience.

we did have to grin and bear it

the cabin was very clean ,but we felt there was a lot of big bulky uncomfortable furniture and the grade just to get to the cabin was too steep

beautiful cabin...horrible customer service

When I rented this cabin I was told several different things that were not true. I was told it was a few minutes to downtown Gatlinburg which is a lie it's 15-20 minutes. Also I was told that there was no steep hills to climb which is a lie. I tried calling when I got there because of how far it was from downtown and there wasn't anyone that could help. I was told to call back at 830 next morning and I did stayed on the phone 2 hours trying to get some of my money back or move cabins and the supervisor said she would call back...needless to say never heard back from her. Customer service sucks. However the cabin is really nice but the people running it aren't. I would never ever rent through them again and will never refer anyone to go through this resort.

We appreciate your review, Mika. We welcome your feedback as it assists us in ensuring each stay is exceptional. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed in these aspects of your stay. There are very few cabins in this area that are less than 15 minutes from down town Gatlinburg. However, we do apologize for the miscommunication. We can assure you, our guests are our number one priority. We have made several changes since your visit and want to thank you for sharing your thoughts.

peaceful retreat

Cabin was beautiful and accommodated with luxury furnishings. It was located close enough to all attractions and restaurants but far enough away on the mountain that you felt secluded. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already begun making plans on our return to Elk Springs Resort and reviewing which cabin we would like to stay in the next time. I highly recommend choosing Elks Springs Resort.

the perfect getaway

My mom has always wanted to stay in a log cabin and this meet everyone of her expectations. We visited in December when the weather was cool and crisp. The cabin was perfect. My mom raved over the beautiful wood, the way the stones from the fireplace extend to the top of the ceiling, and the kitchen with the granite counter tops. Most importantly being there allowed her relax in her dream vacation home. If our schedules would have allowed, we could have easily extended the stay for another week. My mom can't wait for a chance to come back. There was not one thing that we would complain about or suggest an improvement. Check in and out was simple and customer care was only a phone call away to answer any questions, including who delivers pizza.

beautiful cabin! beware of snow - gatlinburg can't handle it!

The Grin & Bear It cabin is just stunning. We loved every inch of it. It was spotlessly clean and the furnishings were lovely. The only complaint I have is the fact that the driveway to the cabin is a steep incline. This would not have been a factor if the weather was nicer, but Gatlinburg saw an inch of snow during our stay, and even though we do not drive a small car, we could not get our car up the drive to the flat space in front of the cabin. We had to leave it at the bottom of the drive and climb up on foot. Had this incline been advised in the cabin's description, we might have chosen another one. We did get the car up the driveway the next day, but coming back down proved treacherous as the car just slid. I was terrified that we would slide right off the edge of the road, which had no guardrail. The actual roadway throughout the property was plowed, so no issue there. I would caution vacationers to consider the time of year they visit, because Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge shut almost completely down with the minor snowfall, and we had nothing to do and no place to go out to dinner. Since we did love the property so much, we would definitely come back again in warmer weather.

Bonnie P. on 01/23/2016

Thank you for your honest review. We appreciate your feedback as our guest. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the cabin during your stay. The snow is almost magical to see, however, it does make travel challenging in our area. Please do not hesitate to contact us during your visit if we can assist you in any way. We have on-site maintenance, as well as 24/7 guest assistance. We will be happy to send someone out to salt and shovel the driveway while you are at the cabin. Your safety is our top priority. As a returning guest, you will enjoy a 10% discount off all future stays. Please call one of our friendly sales representatives when you are ready to start planning your next Gatlinburg get-away.

a wonderful retreat for a family of 4

Overall, this was a very memorable vacation rental. First time on a true family vacation with our 9 and 6 year olds. House was beautiful, clean and secluded. Spacious and well-maintained! We would have appreciated a kitchen that was stocked with more utensils/pots/pans, sharper quality knives and a salt/pepper shaker. A couple glasses were chipped/cracked and we had to run the dishwasher more than expected. As a family that planned to cook a lot for 6 days, we were a bit restricted when planning our menu. The outdoor grill worked well, hot tub was actually 'hot' and the fireplace was super cozy. Our kids were very happy with the accommodations and we made great memories, which is what it was all about! Thank you and we hope to return.

Scott Z. on 04/18/2016

We are happy to hear that enjoyed your stay. You are correct, the memories are what it is all about! We sincerely apologize for the issues that you experienced during your stay. I can assure you, your feedback is appreciated. We will have our housekeeping department take an inventory of the kitchen items to see what may need to be added. We keep a variety of kitchen supplies on hand and ready for situations such as this, however, we do not stock salt and pepper shakers. Please do not hesitate to contact us during your stay if you find that the cabin is not stocked appropriately. We will be happy to send out a friendly technician to bring out the missing or broken items. You, as our guest, are our top priority. We provide 24/7 guest assistance during your stay to assist you with any need that may arise. Please don't suffer, call us! We hope that you will consider choosing Elk Springs Resort for your next vacation get-away. Please come back and see us soon!

great but some surprises

I will agree with most reviewers that the cabin was beautiful. However, Grin & Bear It was described as been extremely secluded with a garden. This was not the case. The Elk Springs Resort is a winding hill with cabins closely dotted together on this hill. Grin & Bear It is still about 4 SUV's length away from the next cabin. Our cabin had a nice wrap-around deck but all of it is in view of the neighbors. A walk to the hot-tub along this deck cannot be done in privacy and you will still hear your neighbors when in the tub (though they cannot see you). Finally, the "garden" on this property is so small its unusable - I had vision of playing with my kids outside the cabin, but that not possible. Finally, our feet were black after walking around the cabin bare-foot. I'm been picky in this review, but my vision of a mountain getaway wasn't realised at this resort. Its a cabin on a winding hill where you can't do much other than stay inside or go to town.

best. vacation. ever

We loved our stay at 'Grin and Bear It'. We have 4 children aged 1-10 and the cabin was perfect for a landing spot for our daily adventures into the Smokey mountains. It was gorgeous, beautifully decorated and comfortable (well, except for the horrible fold out mattress in the sofa-that needs immediate replacement) and we didn't want to leave! Better than a home away from home. We wished this was our home!

We had a wonderful time in this cabin! We enjoyed using the fireplace on a chilly morning, and the hot tub on a cool evening. The cabin has all the features of home, and despite the resort being almost full, it was extremely quiet. The property management company is very accommodating and professional. No complaints! Perfect vacation stay! Will definitely be telling our friends about this hidden gem!

Grin & Bear It cabin was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. Very nice bedrooms and loved the floorplan. One suggestion - the kitchen needs more plates, silverware and glasses. I would suggest another set of 8. One set for a small family had me running the dishwasher almost every day.

tranquil and restful

We rented this cabin for an anniversary getaway for our 25th and my parent's 56 anniversary. This was a great cabin. Very peaceful and tranquil. The cabin was nicely decorated had all the amenities of home. We loved sitting on the porch in the rockers and enjoying the sounds of nature such as dueling woodpeckers in the woods in the morning and the crickets at night. The cabin was easy to find and was minutes away from Gatlinburg and most times a 20-30 minute drive to Pigeon Forge. We did have on small issue with a leak from the upstairs bathroom to the downstairs bathroom upon arrival. Called the maintenance number and he was there in less than 30 mins to fix the issue. Very polite and professional and fixed it within an hour. No more issues during our stay. Would stay here again!!! Loved the Grin and Bear It cabin.

Grin and Bear it is the perfect cabin if you have little ones. You do not have to park so close to the road like other cabins. There is also a good amount grassy area for the little ones to run around in. The cabin was in excellent condition, and stocked with everything you need. For us, the location was perfect. We are already looking at dates for next year!

cabin was not as described. i called b4 picking the cabin below

I ask about the bed with tall poster poles so I choose that cabin over their with a jucuzzi for the bed.. Mistake. Picture was not accurate. The bed was gone. Also pictured were 2 sofas one was supposed to b a bed. It wasn't! So my son 10 year old son slept on the couch 9 year old daughter in bed. I'm moderator of 11 Facebook pages, I don't like being mislead. While the cabin was beautiful the truth is the fact that item not as described made it a very hard trip with kids unhappy. My mom has been in the hospital 14 days this was to b a nice getaway. We go every year. You look great from pictures & computer. Wish someone had informed us of changes. Contacted company upon arrival. Sorry it's a personal owned cabin!!! SO? You have mis leading info. No happy at all!

look up secluded.

"Very private and very secluded - the two most important features you have requested" That is directly from your website and those were the two most important aspects of the cabin we were looking for. Our cabin was less than 50ft from our neighboring cabin. I would hardly describe that as secluded let alone very secluded. For the amount I paid for the cabin I expected it to be farther into the woods with at least some trees between in and the neighboring cabin. The pictures on the website are misleading in that regard. I passed up other cabins because of their proximity to neighbors and thought I was paying extra for a private retreat. I will not stay here again nor recommend it. The cabin was not what I was looking for and I find the blatantly untruthful description and pictures very unprofessional.
