We had a great stay at Bearskin Lodge! Clean. Comfortable. Friendly. A perfect stay except that we paid for an "upgraded view"... the river view... yes there is a river... but all you see is the hotel that is directly across from your room. Save the $10/night! We did speak to the front desk the day after we got there...

My husband and I often do an over night getaway in Gatlinburg. On a whim we decided to try the Bearskin Lodge. We will be returning regularly. Upon arriving the staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a pool and lazy river but I prefer a hot tub. I was a little disappointed to find out their wasn't a...

My husband and I love Bearskin Lodge! We have stayed several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable, and the accommodations are always clean and nice. The hotel is also very convenient for walking to area shops and restaurants. We will certainly stay here again.

It is really nice to have a hotel that is so close to the path leading along the creek right into the National Park. We liked everything about the BearSkin Lodge. We were there in February. The pool might be a little small for a hot summer day, but the cold creek leading into the park is footsteps away and...

Although nice accommodations too expensive for what they were. Had my husband not booked over the phone we would have not stayed there. We have been coming to Gatlinburg for years & this isn't he first time I regret letting him book the room. He was told one thing over the phone & we were charged more when the reservations...

Rooms are well lit and lightly colored.Not dark and dreary. Good breakfast.Fast elevators.Covered parking. A 2 minute walk to KFC. Large enough pool to where you dont feel crowded . Nice staff and the lobby is rarely super busy so you can grab a fres hot cookie and rock by the fire.

The Bearskin Lodge is ideally located close to all the Gatlinburg sites and entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains. Easy access to the Parkway to and from Pigeon Forge! The rooms are very clean and staff all very professional!

Not even the manager that was standing there off into space. We were there for our honeymoon. Check in was good, room was ok other...
