Beautiful View and Great Location
We enjoyed our stay at the Paradise View Cabin. It was immaculate and had all that we needed. The location was centrally located for us. We love to go to Cade's Cove and it wasn't a bad trip. Also, close to the Island and the Parkway. We went to Gatlinburg and walked across the new Sky Bridge, which I would recommend. Danny responded to all of my questions promptly. I would highly recommend this cabin to everyone. You won't be disappointed.

Bear Creek Cabin/ Paradise rentals
My husband and I stayed at Bear Creek Cabin May 18- May 26, 2019. This was the nicest cabins we have ever stayed in! The cabin was very, very clean. The cabin was also very accommodating with a full kitchen, bathroom, WIFI and grill. If I emailed the owners with a question, I received an answer immediately. We plan on staying there again next year.

Memories
We had a great stay at the Smoky Mountain Memories cabin and made memories of our own. The cabin was ready for us to enjoy the beautiful scenery from the large windows of the family room and dining area. As we cooked our breakfast you can see the clouds come in and why they call them the Smokey Mountains. Having the pool table downstairs was convenient for fun and games. The cabin had everything we needed.

Relaxing
Started to go out on the town, however the cabin was so secluded, cozy, relaxing and beautiful, we just stayed at the cabin 90% of the time. Clean and had everything we needed and wanted in a relaxing stay.

Beautiful cabin and great location!
Our stay at Paradise View cabin was perfect. The view is wonderful and the cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed. The drive up the mountain was a little intimidating at first but we only met one other vehicle on the one lane road during our entire stay. We used Uber to go to Pigeon Forge for dinner each night and it was great. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again!

Amazing Vacation!
We had never been to the Smoky Mountains before and weren't sure what to expect. Staying in this cabin set us up for a week of success. It was centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit. There was nothing too far, and yet it offered the quiet and peaceful seclusion we were looking for. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, and we loved the views. The hot tub was an added bonus, and I loved that linens were included (I've stayed in homes before where they are not included and it is such a drag having to pack sheets/towels). Thank you so much for helping us have an amazing week! We LOVED coming, and we hope to return one day!

Nice Weekend in the Smokies & at Black Bear Hollow
Last weekend my wife Jane and I spent the weekend in search of wildflowers and waterfalls in Great Smoky National Park. It was Jane's first real trip into the Smokies. The night before we arrived the Park got a lot of rain so the rivers and waterfalls were just amazing. It was as noisy as I have ever heard the park. But it was a sight to behold. And the wildflower festival was just beginning. So the trip was a great experience. We stayed in Black Bear Cave Cabin at the Black Bear Hollow Cabins. The cabin was warm and cozy and clean. It was perfect for the 2 of us. The hot tub was a real hit after long hikes each day. We enjoyed the relaxing water as we felt the cool rain on our cheeks. The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals which we appreciated. This tied the weekend together and made for a wonderful experience. Having stayed in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area in the past I found this part of the park much more quiet and less congested. I would definitely stay in Townsend again and likely at Black Bear Hollow.

Satisifed
We were very pleased with our stay at this cabin! The cabin was clean, BUT we do wish it was a little better stocked for the money we spent on it. Over all, we were satisfied and would stay here again. We come to the Smokey Mountains every year and always have a great time!

A great secluded cabin.
We planned a quick weekend getaway and Danny and Tara couldn't have done better. Danny and Tara were very accommodating and were quick to respond to any of our questions. The cabin was very nice, well equipped, and the last one on a private road. If you are wanting to get away from it all, this is the place to go.

Peace and Quiet and a must needed "Escape"
We just returned from our week stay at Precious Memories and it was wonderful! Our family considers Townsend our home away from home and now we have a new place to return to. The cabin is beautiful and super inviting and comfortable. The views are the best to wake up to and return to after a day spent in Cades Cove or throughout the mountains. Thank you for providing such a beautiful place for our family and others to enjoy!

Beautiful cabin with incredible views!
We enjoyed a wonderful week with extended family at this picturesque, isolated and beautiful cabin. The house was clean and in great shape. Every room in the house has a balcony and phenomenal view! My mom is handicapped and the house worked well even for her! We loved our time at this beautiful spot in the Smokies and would totally come back!

Absolutely loved it!!
We enjoyed the cabin !! Very clean and had everything we needed. I really appreciate you letting us arrive a day early. The snow was beautiful. So thankful we didn’t have to drive on the actual day we were to arrive. We would definitely love to stay there again.Thanks so much for taking care of us.

Definitely One for the Memories!
This cabin is amazing! Highly recommended. Spectacular view that you will not, repeat, will not get tired off. My spouse and I spent a full week with a couple of family members, and it was extremely satisfying. The house was cozy, has everything we needed, now me being pregnant could have interfered in how comfortable I would be, but I can honestly say, we felt like home. Great location, near to all attractions and entertainment, convenience stores and everything you’ll need that probably have forgotten at home. The cabin is located at the top of a mountain meaning you will be experiencing the full secluded cabin idea and relaxation. I would request another booking . Oh, not to mention the owners Danny and Tara, incredibly helpful, attentive and understanding. I could say the best hosts I’ve encountered in vacation rentals.

Wonderful stay!
We so enjoyed our stay! Everything was perfect. Our cabin, Bear Cave had everything we needed to make our stay quite comfortable. Jacuzzi, hot tub, porch with rockers, outdoor fire pit, grill, well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed, washer and dryer. What else could we have possibly needed??? The light snowfall we received was The icing on the cake!!! This was our fourth time staying at Black Bear Hollow and will not be our last. Thank you!

GREAT!! As always..
We've been staying at Black Bear Hollow at least once a year for many years and it is always a great vacation. We usually stay in Black Bear Mtn. Cabin but we have been in almost all of them at one time. They are very private and secluded, well maintained and comfortable. I like the fact that each cabin is different, not the "mass produced" plastic looking "cabins." We plan to be there every year that we possible can. Danny and Tara have always been great hosts and are very attentive to the details of making our stay great everytime. Thank you! Kerry & Alex Keeling

Great Getaway!!
Nice accommodations and loved being at end of road. Unfortunately didn’t see any wildlife in the area but close enough to Cade’s Cove for wildlife viewing. It drizzled a lot during our time so the covered porch with swing was nice! Decks are a tad slippery during rainy weather but they have some areas that have textured stepping areas. They do have a great jacuzzi on the back deck that worked out any soreness from hiking! Unfortunately because of rainy weather didn’t get to use the outdoor fire pit but the gas fireplace inside was a great bonus!!! They have a super cute bear cabin theme going on with your own little bears throughout. I will definitely love another getaway to this location and hopefully snow next time!!!

Perfect weekend getaway
This was our second time staying here and we live it more every year. Feels like home away from home. It’s clean and beautifully decorated. We come every year for my birthday and can’t wait for next year.

Perfection!
The cabin was lovely. It was exactly what we were looking for. Very secluded, we didn't see anyone else the 5 nights we were there. Very comfortable to return to after days of hiking in the mountains or sightseeing. Location was close to Gatlinburg and Pigeon forge. So you can do as much or as little as you want. We would definitely return and have recommended it to friends.

Love It
We have been staying at these cabins for about 5-6 years now. We use Townsend as our paradise away. We have stayed at three different cabins with Black Bear Hollow Cabins. All three have been perfect. I do believe Black Bear Ridge is my our favorite for us. The location of there cabins are perfect because we love going to Pigeon Forge and Townsend. So being on Wears Valley is the perfect location for us. The cabin had everything we needed and the setting is second to none. I just got back from 4 months in Iraq so for my wife and I it was a great way to get away. Thank you for our vacation get away!!!!!!
