We usually get cabins when visiting the Mtn but decided to stay closer to the action of downtown gatlinburg this time. I did a TON of research before choosing Bearskin and it lived up to all my hopes!

Located near the park end of the strip. It is within super close walking range of the main drag without actually being on the main strip which is perfect!

Definitely try to get a room on the creek side..we loved coming back late at night and sitting on the room patio and listening to the creek with a bit of the park mtns visible.

The rooms are super clean and done in a rustic camp style that was classy and not over the top cheesy.

There was coffee, lemonade and fresh cookies in the lounge. Staff was polite and responsive.

The only minor thing which was a downside was that the pool and "lazy river" is MUCH smaller then it appears in the pictures. Small kids will probably still have fun in the heat cooling down but it is not an area that teens or adults would want to hang out for long.

Overall we would definitely stay again!!

Front desk staff was very welcoming and professional. Our room was OUTSTANDING with a great balcony and view of downtown. Best value on our 10 day trip to 3 states. Property was very clean and well kept unlike the nasty hotel we stayed at the day before in Nashville. Good lighting and safety equipment appeared to be in order. We are making this our Gatlinburg Hotel. Everyone we saw and spoke to were smiling and having a good time. That should tell you a lot about this property. THANKS! See you soon!

Room Tip: The higher up, the better! Only a few balconies, book early!

Staff is the best, rooms where great, breakfast was great. The pools are a little on the small side but the fire pit was nice to sit by. Also the view from the room for the river was nice. Also included free parking the entire stay witch is a must for gatlinburg. Even saw a black bear in the river a little down the block from the hotel. I can't say enough about all the staff and quality of the rooms.

We really liked the Bearskin Lodge. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Continental breakfast was filling and delicious. We had a creek side room, and I really enjoyed sitting on the balcony and hearing the water. The only problem we had was that the beds were EXTREMELY loud. Every time one of us moved, the beds made a really loud noise. We were informed at check-out that the beds were being replaced soon, so this may not be an issue in the future.
