My stay at the Bear Cave Cabin
I enjoyed my Saturday evening through Tuesday morning stay. The peace and quiet, clean cabin, well supplied kitchen and good bed made for an excellent rest-cation. Your proximity to Pigeon Forge is excellent also. I hope to be a repeat customer. 5 stars!

The Perfect Smokies Getaway
This was our first time visiting The Great Smoky Mountains as a family and this cabin was a hit! The kids enjoyed the wide open spaces to run around and couldn't get enough of the hot tub. We loved being in a secluded location, but not too far from all of the amazing hikes and restaurants. It was perfect. Can't wait to come back!

Great Get-away
Took my grandkids to Black Bear Mountain Cabin for the beginning of their spring break. It was secluded, rustic, woodsy, well-stocked, AND clean. We had a great time in the hot tub, watching movies, playing games, making crafts, and took a hike at the nearby Metcalf Bottoms. We also had some great pizza down the road. Will stay again!!

We were Over the Rainbow
The cabin was beautiful and we had everything we needed for our stay. The view was amazing and we had a great time having a bonfire one evening. Even though it rained we loved it there. Kitchen was great and lots of room for our big group. We did having walkers but weren't sure where to walk except on the road. Would like to come again for a longer stay since is a good central location to meet. Would also plan to be sure we had our groceries before we got there since the closest store is the IGA in Townsend and it is limited.

Very nice cabin!
We had a wonderful stay at Paradise View Cabin. The cabin was very large, clean, and well supplied. The views were beautiful even in early spring before the trees were leafed out.

Best stay ever
We enjoyed everything about this cabin. We usually look for something for both the older ones and the younger ones to enjoy, and I have to say this was the best decision ever. We will definitely return. The views were amazing, the cabin is breathtaking, and the fin is endless.

Get Away from reality
As always I enjoy getting away and staying in one of your cabins even if it is just for a weekend. Your cabins are always clean and you can feel the family love in each one and just the environment around. Thank you for having the best cabin get away in the Smokies.

Spectacular Cabin
We recently stayed in the "Black Bear Cave" cabin at Black Bear Hollow Cabins in Townsend, Tn. I have been visiting Townsend cabins for many years and just happened across the advertisement on line. What a rare find this cabin was. It is secluded behind a gate...down a small road between two mountains and the surrounding cabins that are visible are strategically placed so that absolute privacy is awarded to all. Bear Cave is adorably decorated and well kept. We will definitely return!

A truly precious memory indeed!
The cabin was everything that we had hoped for. Very private without losing the feeling of the safety of a gated community. Everything described was accurate. Kitchen was nicely stocked, comfortable beds, wonderful views. We will be staying at another Orr’s property in the near future.

Smokey Mountain Memories
The cabin was clean and adequately supplied. Our family enjoyed the pool table, card games and light of the fireplace. The large windows from each living space provided stunning views! Home is conveniently located about 20 minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We would certainly choose this home again.

Best View! Amazing Cabin!
We loved it. The kitchen had everything needed for my family that likes to cook all of our meals. The views were stellar! Seriously! The best views! One day was a smokey, cloud rolling day. The next was bright and sunny with views that went on and on. Then another day that had rolling clouds, fog and while we were there, snow falling. Each day had a new look of the mountains. The roads are typical mountain roads with switch backs/ hairpin turns. It is normal for the region. If you are not used to it, just go slow. Be very glad that those roads are all residential which means there is very little traffic. The hosts were so receptive to all of our questions and requests. We would book again with them at this location or at their beach condos. It has been a few weeks since our satay, and I still feel refreshed!! Thanks Smokey Mountain Memories Cabin!

There's No Place Like Home
There is a small sign on the wall in the Over the Rainbow Cabin. It reads with Dorothy's famous line, "There's no place like home." This is a particularly relevant sign to hang in the cabin because guests will not feel like guests for long. Like magic, guests transform into residents. Residents quickly become embraced by the quiet, majestic mountains which surround and protect it. The cabin immediately calms the mind and awakens the soul. The residents feel this by simply gazing out the windows. Just as Dorothy found her way home, others will, too, with this cabin. There are thousands of cabins one may occupy, but be assured this one has a Yellow Brick Road leading to it.

True vacation rental
This cabin was fantastic! We could not have asked for a more relaxing experience, and it was the cabin that made our stay in East Tennessee so pleasant and homey. The cabin was super clean and equipped. Many thanks to the owners for making this feel like a home away from home.

A Perfect Thanksgiving In Townsend, TN
Cooked a traditional Turkey Dinner for a family of 6, sat outside by a fire pit and listened to nature and enjoyed the scenery, did a hike through Cades Cove, and then my family and I enjoyed being disconnected for a couple of nights with a gas burning fireplace, hot cocoa and toddies, Christmas movies and family board games. The cabin was clean, comfortable, modern enough for cooking but still had the old world charm of Christmas in the Smoky Mountains. Couldn't have been happier.

Black bear creek
We have stayed in Black bear creek several times and it is always clean and cozy, usually just the two of us but room for a couple more people. The cabin is quiet and private, love it and will be back at Christmas.

Fall stay in the mountains
We stayed in the Black Bear Ridge cabin. We enjoyed mornings and evenings sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch. The cabin was clean, decorated and well stocked. It was everything we wanted in a cabin. Very pleased and plan to return.

The group enjoyed our stay in the hot sunny south. Your cabin was very comfortable and clean for all. We were able to find our cabin without difficulty. We didn’t spend much time in the cabin since we had other activities planned for all. Thanks for having us. Bill Bessler

Perfect Week
We were looking for a secluded mountain cabin we could meet our German cousins for a few days to bike Cades Cove and visit Gatlinburg. Precious Memories was the perfect place. Danny was the perfect host and answered all our questions. We are already planning our next trip back to precious Memories.

Lovely Secluded Cabin <3
We absolutely loved the Black Bear Cave cabin. We took our time online and chose it for our honeymoon getaway. We didn't really want to be right up next to other people -- it kind of takes away from the whole "staying in a cabin" experience. The location was nice and secluded and the drive was beautiful. We were close enough to local attractions that we could get out a little bit, but also retreat when we were done for the day and ready to relax. The cabin was very clean and we had everything we needed for the week. We really enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub -- we definitely miss it now that we are home!!
