affordable and family-friendly cabin Great location with easy access to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. IN general, the cabin was fine. However, it is smaller than appears in photos; mattresses are in bad shape - squeaky, thin and uncomfortable; hot tub was not clean with dirt floating in it.

Great experience! Dare to Bear exceeded my expectations! It was spotless and so charming. The mattresses were a little lumpy/worn and could be replaced and the bedrooms were extremely hot while the common area was comfortable but other than that we loved it. The hot tub was so nice too and management was very professional and kind. The cabin is tucked away from the hustle and bustle but in just a few short minutes you’re in town. We will definitely be booking this cabin again.

Great Cabin We were a little worried when we first booked because some reviews weren't that good. We absolutely loved the cabin though. It was very relaxing. The cabin was very clean. The view was awesome. Some trees have grown up since the initial pictures were taken, but still very nice. The driveway was slightly intimidating at first, but got used to it very quickly. loved the express check-in/out. Everyone we spoke to at Aunt Bug's was super helpful and nice. It was so great to be able to take our dog with us also. I highly recommend Aunt Bug's. Our kids loved the pool table and game room upstairs. The little beds in the wall were a big hit with them too. The small yard around the cabin added to the homey feel of the place.

Great location...Cabin leaves a little to be desired From the pictures and description, this looks like a wonderful cabin, and the location is absolutely wonderful. The cabin isn't horrible, but just a few things to note. We had a family of 4, so our son slept in the loft. Thing to note, the floor of the loft is the ceiling of the bedrooms. So as soon as he was up, everyone was up. <br/><br/>The cabin wasn't as clean as we would have liked. It's also a bit worn down. For instance, simple caulking between the tub and the floor is half done. The bed mattresses needed to be replaced as they were really bad. People have obviously let there dogs run free and not kenneled in this cabin as you can see the scratch marks on the walls.<br/><br/>I think the cabin itself at one point was a great cabin, but has been worn down over time.

Dare To Bear Rental Experience was marginal. Cabin had nice privacy but was not well maintained. Bathroom tub didn&#x2019;t drain, hot tub had debris and scum floating in it, grill was full<br/>of ashes and used charcoal upon arrival, flooring was not swept and our cabin had a big roach (killed 27 roaches and 12 spiders) and spider problem. . Fireplace did not work. Will probably not rent from Aunt Bugs in the future.

Beautiful but not totally happy! The property was beautiful and the stay and our time was great. The disappointments were in the discrepancies in the pictures on your website and gallery compared to what was reality and the service available while staying. The size was significantly different, much smaller than anticipated. <br/>Also, service available was poor. I understand the description said "sleeps 8" and the 3 beds in the wall are not included, however, when the pictures show mattresses, I expected mattresses when we arrived. One will typically make plans when looking at pictures for a family vacation. I was informed when I called that it was not the properties responsibility to provide mattresses. <br/>The sofa bed was broke and uncomfortable and no one came to fix it - we were provided an air mattress. At the price we paid, I would have thought it would have had more than an air mattress. The dish washer also did not work. <br/>In summary - beautiful property, but service was poor and left with the feeling that since the company had their money, they were not concerned about the working of the property.

Smoky Mtn Weekend Overall good weekend. The cabin is clean and well equipped, the Aunt Bugs folks do a great job. <br/>The view is not as good as the pictures because the trees have grown quite a bit. The small bedroom bed creaks with any movement making sleep a little challenging. Unfortunately that was important to us.

This place is horrible The pictures of this place on line are not the same as the place we stayed. The blinds were all ripped up and torn, when I called to complain all they said was sorry we ordered some new ones. The TV's didn't work, no cable or satellite, no wifi signal. Spider webs everywhere with spiders, wasp nests on the porch with wasps swarming. The bathrooms were filthy, no toilet paper.

Great Cabin! We really liked this cabin! It was in a great location right between Gatlinburg and Pigeon forge. Housekeeping could have stepped it up a bit and we would have liked to see more things in the cabin such as salt/pepper, a broom, and games. The kids loved the cubbies upstairs to sleep in but if you are in the bedrooms underneath the loft it is VERY loud when people are moving around upstairs.

Not So Secluded There IS a difference between being secluded & being remote. This cabin is in a remote location, but it is NOT secluded. There is a cabin directly above and a cabin directly below this one, so don't count on peace & quiet if that is your reason for a getaway. Be sure to let the rental company know about problems so you don't get billed. Not all jets in the hot tub & jacuzzi bath are functioning. Tiles in front if the jacuzzi & in the master bathroom are cracked and there is a big crack in the bathroom vanity countertop. Housekeeping doesn't seem to do anything more than wash towels and bed linens. For this, you have to pay a $45 housekeeping fee. Dust was caked on furniture, cobwebs covered lamp shades, & some of the walls had a coat of "dust fur". None of the floors were "cleaned", unless you count the area under the dining table that looked like a bucket of water was poured on it. We couldn't find any way to turn on the gas fireplace. FYI: The dishwasher does work...you just have to get the door lined up so it doesn't hit the base cabinet frame.

Needs updated The cabin was not very clean. Hot tub had something's floating in the water. The bathtubs had soap deposits from where the soap had sit from previous renters. Many things were very dusty. My husbands allergies killed him the entire time we were there. The microwave has a huge crack across the front and the dishwasher door was about broken. The noise it makes when you open/shut it (which is also very difficult) is very loud. The cabin is also about 12 min off the main strip and the driveway is VERY steep. Be careful about winter months. Other than these complaints, beds where comfortable and clean. Cabin is very pretty and very secluded. We did not contact management about any of these issues. Most couldn't be fixed besides the cleaning and there would have been fee for that per the rules and regs we agreed to prior to checking in. I would not recommend this cabin.

Okay cabin but needs some attention to cleaning and bugs Overall the stay was okay. There were a lot of bugs in the cabin ranging from a scorpion to a roach (something actually crawled on and bit my husband while in bed). We also had a raccoon that visited our trash can at night causing us to have to bring the outside bins inside. The cabin was not very clean and the sheets on the bed looked like they had not been changed (they were yellow in the spots where people had been laying and there was hair on them). The air conditioner upstairs did not work and someone came to look at it and found the duct needed to be replaced and said they would send someone that day but no one came to fix it; there was no air conditioning upstairs the entire time. The appliances also looked dirty as you could see smears all over the refrigerator and stove. We also had an abundance of bees that congregated at our front entrance everyday.

My Stay at the Dare to Bare All in all the cabin was beautiful but I have a strong fear of heights and it was too high up for my comfort. The driveway was the scariest I'm sorry to say. It was so very steep and I was terrified to come down off of it. I had to put our car in 4 wheel drive to get up the drive way. One day I got half way up the drive and my car rolled backward back down to the road. Another day My daughter and I started down the drive way and my foot slipped off the brake and I lost control of the car going down. I screamed out "God Please help us!" and when I said us the car just stopped... It was still in gear and my foot was off the pedal!! I managed to find the brake pedal and pull it up into Park. Then I put it back in gear and I got us down. Needless to say I had to sit at the road for at least 5 minutes to get my composure. The location was my only problem. Everything else was fine.

Well on line they showed that. but when we got there they wer missing the mattresses. I was disappointed. Cause that was the whole reason we wanted that cabin. Cause the kids were excited about the beds in the walls. I didn't even bother to call the front desk. Cause as rude as they were about the hot tub. I knew they didn't care that my family just spend 800$ on a cabin that they advertised that wasnt what we paid for. I won't rent from them again.

Stayed 3 nights with kids and grandkids. Cabin was beautiful and clean. Driveway was very steep, a little scary up on top of a hill. Views were great. No Way Jose's Mexican restaurant in Pigeon Forge was Fantastic!

The cabin property was well kept and clean. The kids loved the game room. Our TV's stopped working the day after we arrived which was taken care of immediately. The blinds however, were ripped apart and offered no privacy. We were told they would be replaced and were not.

The cabin was just as described in the photos. Very steep driveway. If there is snow or ice, no way to get to cabin. Futon upstairs was broken and dish box in master did not work. View are pretty but not really a mountain view. The cabins was 20 minutes from anything. If yoqu like peace and quiet this is the place. Management company was great. Very helpful.

We had a great time. Our family needed a relaxing time away and we sure got it. The only thing that needed attention was the hot tub. Water was a bit on the smelly side and kinda dirty. Cabin itself was awesome.

All in all the cabin was beautiful but I have a strong fear of heights and it was too high up for my comfort. The driveway was the scariest I'm sorry to say. It was so very steep and I was terrified to come down off of it. I had to put our car in 4 wheel drive to get up the drive way. One day I got half way up the drive and my car rolled backward back down to the road. Another day My daughter and I started down the drive way and my foot slipped off the brake and I lost control of the car going down. I screamed out "God Please help us!" and when I said us the car just stopped... It was still in gear and my foot was off the pedal!! I managed to find the brake pedal and pull it up into Park. Then I put it back in gear and I got us down. Needless to say I had to sit at the road for at least 5 minutes to get my composure. The location was my only problem. Everything else was fine.

We weren't sure what to expect based on other reviews but I just want to say that we loved this cabin! We had a wonderful week here with no issues.

The cabin was larger than I imagined. It was amazingly clean and the beds were very comfortable. It has big screen TV's and Dish in every bedroom as well as the living room. We had no problems with anything. It is very secluded and farther out than I am used to but if you want to be away from the car noise and want to hear the sound of water rippling over rocks, this is the place. I will definitely come back.

We were a little disappointed we the cabin. The beds were so worn out ad uncomfortable that we left a day early because our backs couldn't take the punishment any longer.

Rental would not agree to current price listed on website. Operator did not have the listening skills required to even understand my questions.<br/>Floor in master bathroom was rotten around toilet and caving in. Tiles were duct taped together. Had to straddle the toilet to use. Cabinet in MBR falling apart. Floor in cabin was filthy. Huge log blocking part of the parking area. Otherwise, not bad with a good floor plan and good location. Quiet with few neighbors. Just needs some maintenance and better housekeeping.

We have used Aunt Bug`s 3 times and they are always great but Dare to Bare has a few issues. Driveway is straight up and hard too park and then turnaround and get out. There was a huge hole in the master Bathroom floor covered with Duck Tape and a crack in the jacuszzi bath tub covered with duck tape. They were in the middle of re-staining the outside of the cabin and deck. Ruined a new pair of shoes getting stain on them from the deck. Aunt Bugs has great cabins to stay in but will not return to this one.

The cabin was not very clean. Hot tub had something's floating in the water. The bathtubs had soap deposits from where the soap had sit from previous renters. Many things were very dusty. My husbands allergies killed him the entire time we were there. The microwave has a huge crack across the front and the dishwasher door was about broken. The noise it makes when you open/shut it (which is also very difficult) is very loud. The cabin is also about 12 min off the main strip and the driveway is VERY steep. Be careful about winter months. Other than these complaints, beds where comfortable and clean. Cabin is very pretty and very secluded. We did not contact management about any of these issues. Most couldn't be fixed besides the cleaning and there would have been fee for that per the rules and regs we agreed to prior to checking in. I would not recommend this cabin.

There IS a difference between being secluded & being remote. This cabin is in a remote location, but it is NOT secluded. There is a cabin directly above and a cabin directly below this one, so don't count on peace & quiet if that is your reason for a getaway. Be sure to let the rental company know about problems so you don't get billed. Not all jets in the hot tub & jacuzzi bath are functioning. Tiles in front if the jacuzzi & in the master bathroom are cracked and there is a big crack in the bathroom vanity countertop. Housekeeping doesn't seem to do anything more than wash towels and bed linens. For this, you have to pay a $45 housekeeping fee. Dust was caked on furniture, cobwebs covered lamp shades, & some of the walls had a coat of "dust fur". None of the floors were "cleaned", unless you count the area under the dining table that looked like a bucket of water was poured on it. We couldn't find any way to turn on the gas fireplace. FYI: The dishwasher does work...you just have to get the door lined up so

New appliances needed, new clean bed linens and quilt (Quilts were very dirty) This place had the dustiest decor I have ever seen. So sad for such a nice cabin other than needed cleaning from top to bottom.. in and out side. Kind of far from town but beautiful setting. Clean everything and I mean everything and put new shades up and I would come back! Couldn't get fireplace to work also. I suggest you have some one check this place more often to see the condition its in.

It was a little farther out than we expected but most of all we felt the property had garbage all over it including used bars of soap in the yard and empty water bottles and cans. Inside we found a dirty sock that did not belong to us with spider webs all over the place. When we went to use the dishes there were dead bugs in the cupboards with the dishes. This could be a really nice place just needed to be cleaned. The upstairs beds are in like closets not big enough for adults.
