      Historical Traveler Reviews Bearskin Lodge on the River Hotel Gatlinburg

      Honeymoon with children!!!!

      from

      I loved our stay at bearskin. Although we were with our children, it was romantic and cozy. I highly reccommend to all! I was, to say the least, impressed.

      Loved the view

      from

      We loved the hotel, and the staff was more than helpful with luggage,etc. and very friendly. The only negative thing was the carpet was dirty. I had my grandchildren in the room running around barefoot and their little feet got so dirty. But awe will stay there again because it was one of the best weve stayed in in Gatlinburg and weve been coming there twice a year for about 30 years. Karen Gregory

      Just The Best for JamFest!

      from

      Just The Best!Jan. 3-5, 2003, I was sponsor of a Peewee Cheerleading Squad of approximately 20 and had to make accomodations for the girls and their families to stay in Gatlinburg for the New Year's Jam Jamfest Cheerleading Competition. I did some internet research, some phone calls and received a brochure on The Bear Skin Lodge. Tony was more than helpful and courteous to all of our inquiries. The lodge was absolutely all that I was told it would be! They were also so kind to barricade off an area in the parking lot for our Motorcoach driver so he could easily access parking daily. Now that is service! Rooms had great views, fireplaces and all the necessary amenities and we just loved our view of the river from our balcony. I only wish we had longer to stay and enjoy it. I would highly recommend The Bear Skin and I intend on staying there again Jan. 2-4, 2004 for the New Year's Jam Jamfest again. Thanks guys!

      Love Bearskin Lodge

      My Best Hotel Experience, Ever!!!!!!!

      from

      We had originally booked another hotel but switched hotels when we saw The Bear Skin Lodge on our way in. The rooms were extremely clean and well taken care of. The housekeepers were anonymous, and the staff was more than willing to help with anything. After we leaving we decided that we wanted to stay there for our honeymoon, so in October me and 15 other guests will all be staying there because we me and my fiancee cannot stop raving about the excellence of the hotel. I hate hunting and my fiancee loves it! The decor was well matched with the name but not so over powering that it made me uncomfortable. All in all this was the best hotel that I have ever stayed in, literally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      thanks, Jessica Blakely

      Great place to stay!

      from

      This is by far the best place in Gatlinberg to stay! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly. You can't go wrong with this one!

      Wonderful!

      from

      Very clean with friendly employees, nice pool and lazy river. Nice decor, and, most importantly, comfortable beds. Every other hotel we've stayed at in Gatlinburg has mattresses that are like concrete slabs, but Bearskin is very comfortable. Also right next door to our favorite steak place in Gatlinburg, the Peddler.

      Excellent Stays

      from

      My family and I have been traveling to Gatlinburg several times a year for over 3 decades. In that time, we have stayed at almost every motel/hotel there. As hotels age, they will usually have a corresponding decline in service/cleanliness and this keeps us moving around. Right now, the Bear Skin is absolutely the best place to stay in Gatlinburg. A nice plus is the proximity to The Peddler restaurant.

      Great Place in Town

      from

      We don't usually stay in Gatlinburg, but decided to try this place for a weekend stay so we could go hiking. The room was great. Very spacious and decorated very well. The fireplace was a great extra touch! The only down side is that your view is of the hotel on the other side of the river, but I would still stay here again since it was nice to be on the edge of town (light # 10) and walk around at night after a day of hiking.

      Love at first sight

      from

      Love the style of the motel. Rooms on the river are great.

The campground is located in the Pigeon Forge area which is near Dollywood, Gatlinburg, etc., it looks like a great place to come with the kids lots of things to do a real tourist area like Mrytle Beach, just be sure to bring lots of $$$$$$$.

      The weather cooperated as we travelled along, temperature rising from 16 to 24. The clear blue skies would be perfect when we reached the Smokey Mountains. The driver makes the rules and decisions while they are in the Captains seat. He announced "Did you know you have to smoke in the Smokey Mountains?", he has a dry wonderful sense of humour. We prepare for this event, what else is there ...

      I was glad that my instructor came up with the idea for us to work the flight from Charlotte to Knoxville instead of us deadheading because if it wouldn't have worked out, I would have not passed and would have had to do a few more hours with someone else. We got to Knoxville about 9:30 pm and I was done, I got my ...
