  • Clean and efficient experience in The Bear Condo


    It begins with communication and communication from the owner was perfect. We felt very prepared to enter the unit and found it as we expected. The balcony was a nice place and was very comfortable and peaceful. We felt like we had a great location as we were not on the strip, but we were not far away either. The Keurig that was there was a great addition and enjoyed by all of us. The kitchenette was simple, but efficient. The Condo was very clean and We would definitely stay there again.

    Our stay was outstanding, although the condo was a little bit small for 4 adults, it was clean and conviently located to town and the trolly. We also spotted 4 bears in the parking lot. We had a great time. John & Valerie

  • Comfortable and quiet!


    This condo is nicely located to the main tourist strip of Gatlinburg. There are many stairs, which my family enjoyed walking after eating downtown. Beds are comfortable, there is a fully stocked coffee station and a large balcony to enjoy your morning coffee. The host was kind enough to reach out via text and email with helpful details. We even saw three baby black bears as we were packing up the car to travel home!

  • Just Right!


    Clean, great location, quiet at night! Pre-reservation information and communication was excellent - thank you!! We were within walking distance of downtown, the pool was adequate for the kids, and the apartment was comfortable. I would stay there again!

  • Great Place


    A very nice place with a great location. Everything was very nice and clean. It is a little small but I knew that gong in. For what we needed it was just right. The owner answered all our questions and was easy to work with.
