The black bear cabin is located just up the road from "Next to Heaven" horseback riding and zip lining. There are two other cabins within 100 feet of the cabin, but no one was in the other two cabins so my wife and I enjoyed complete solitude. The check in and access was very easy. Directions were perfect. Really the only negatives we had was that the water had quite a bit a sediment in it, and made the jetted tub somewhat of a muddy experience. It also was not very good for making coffee or tea. If we would have known about the condition of the water we would have brought our own water for drinking.
The other issue we had was that the TV in the downstairs bedroom did not work, and the remotes for the TV and cable were not real clear on how to use as well as we had to get our own batteries to make one of them work.
Oh one other thing was the cleaning people had left the dirty linens wrapped in clear plastic under the end table downstairs.
Everything else worked and was pretty clean. About what we expected for a mountain cabin. Upstairs mattress could be a little better as well as the linens, but we stayed downstairs so not much of an issue for us.

Thank you for the review. We are glad that you were able to enjoy the solitude of the Smoky Mountains and our cabin during your stay. These cabins are great for those folks that want to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax with nature.
We would like to say that we hear you about the water, the linens and the TVs and would like to assure you that we have Direct TV on their way out to fix our service, we have bought brand new TVs for both the living room and master bedroom for each of our cabins and we have a water filtration specialist along with hot tub maintenance crew on their way to make everything right with each of our cabins. We are also replacing linens. After your stay our Team went on a mission! We would like to invite you back to stay again soon with assurances that that all of the above has been made perfect! We appreciate you and your review of our property.

Thank you!

Thank you for the review of our property. We are glad to see that you had an enjoyable visit, and we hope that you were able to get some great pictures while visiting Cades Cove!

We would like to address the 3 issues that you mentioned and hope to clear up any confusion. 1. We agree that the faucet in the master bath needs a better connection or to be replaced and appreciate your pointing that out. Our team is on it. 2. Had we of known that there were not any sheets or a blanket for the sleeper sofa we would have been straight over. We store extra covers in the chest in the hall. We are sorry for the miscommunication. 3. We are glad that the government reopened as well. The shutdown created unfortunate circumstances for many folks. We would like to state that we feel that our cancellation policies are fair and in no way strict. We offer our guests options, including the option to reschedule their visit when and if they ever need to consider cancelling their reservation. All of the options are clearly outlined in our booking agreement that each guest must sign before booking one of our properties.

Thank you again for taking the time to review our property and your experience with us. We do hope that you will come back soon! We encourage you to call or email with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,
Summit 54 Properties, iTrip Team
