Minor issues but overall a good place to stay
It was a beautiful cabin. Our kids really enjoyed their time there. Just a few things could be addressed...light bulbs need changing out (many were blown), housekeeping needs to be aware of food left in the oven (pizza was there when we arrived), the dryer sounds horrible (we were scared to use it for fear of a fire), although pets are allowed there isn't much grass for them to use the restroom on and therefore there was dog feces on the pavement going into the cabin (we took our puppy for many walks in search of grass). The bed was comfortable despite a previous reviewers statement. We had to contact the owner for the wifi password (took a day for that information) which was no big deal but for those needing it right away the owner stated it was somewhere in the cabin on display (we could not locate it) and he would make sure it was available. There was a little confusion as far as the code and address. The app you have to download in order to receive information was a little confusing and there was a lag in getting the information that you need to access the property. All of these things are minor and overall it was a nice place to stay.
Very nice place to stay. I read the reviews before booking and agreed with some but was still a good place to stay! Loved the pool and would recommend to anyone!
Left a day early
We were not a huge fan of this rental. Upon entering it there is a pool chemical smell that we expected as obviously there is a pool inside and we love the smell! What we did not like was the strong moss ball smell. The pool table is absolutely filthy. It has so many stains on it assuming from drinks - maybe something else in this romantic atmosphere. The felt needs to be cleaned or put a cover on the thing. The house was pretty clean, but still a few things we wiped up. Especially the sticky remotes that had stuff stuck to them. We wiped down all 4 in the living room - gross. The biggest reason we left was we did not feel secure. They keep a generic key in a lockbox that anyone could make a copy of. Most rentals we stay at has some kind of lock from the inside that is not accessible from the outside. We had to move the living room chair in front of the door just in case someone came in. We barely slept for two nights because of that. The mattress was fine. I know that was an issue in previous reviews. We just did not feel safe and traveling with a 3 and 5 year old we did not want to feel that someone could come in at any time without our acknowledgement. Management seemed fine as we did not really have any immediate issues that needed to be taken care of.
Almost a 5!
What a adorable place to get away! But if you don’t plan on staying in a lot you may not enjoy all to offer like the pool, ❤️ Jacuzzi, hot tub, sauna or decks. We were so busy that the hot tub was our only go to. Which was nice!
Only a few minor issues, no pizza pan, only 2 bath towels for 3 nights. Very loud dishwasher so run that before you go to bed. Not happy there is a 30.00 fee if you don’t have dishes done and put away before you leave. Most all places I’ve been (which is a LOT) only require dishes to be ran and clean so they are ready to put away. TV in living room never worked and there is a 30.00 fee if you unplug and rep plug in. Not a huge deal but it would have been nice to have a working TV in living room.
In a semi busy resort so it’s not private although back decks are primarily private except one neighbor but they can’t see fully your deck. Pool table needs replaced or removed, for kids it would be ok but it’s not a kid place.
Overall great place. Would recommend for couples looking to stay in for a weekend!
Great escape for couples!! The perfect place for privacy and relaxation.
We booked this cabin for our anniversary and long weekend away. It was the perfect place! It sits in a corner so there is privacy but still a great view from the deck off the bedroom and off downstairs. It feels far enough away but still close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We got Papa Johns delivered :) I highly recommend this cabin to any couples looking for a romantic stay in the Smoky Mountains.
Swim 'n Bear PERFECT for rainy days!!
We really LOVED our stay at Swim 'n Bear. We stayed 4 nights and it rained 3 of them. Thankfully, there were plenty of things to do in the cabin so we didn't notice as much. My daughter loved the pool table and swing on the porch. We enjoyed the pool, it was just big enough for the 3 of us. The hot tub on the deck was nice and secluded in a back corner. The cabin was very nice and clean and I love how it was decorated. I have put this one in my favorites list and we hope to stay here again!!
