Very nice, clean hotel with large roooms and large bathrooms. The hotel has recently been renovated. It is good quality for the price. Breakfast is included. Half of the rooms are on the river. Staff is friendly and nice.

Stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend for our anniversary. Room appeared pretty clean upon arrival, except for some long black hairs in the shower which makes me think they didnt clean it. I do like the fact there is no carpet in rooms, thats much cleaner. We had a nice balcon

Just curious. Is there a table and chairs in the double queen rooms with river view? Does the lazy river close on Labor day? THANKS..... Looking forward to coming in October.
in our room there were 2 kitchen wood chairs a dinette table, a small couch and one comfy chair. Rooms were nice, I don't know about lazy river. Pretty small. very good for small children.

Sorry, Iam going to ask my question a different way. Is it doable for my two 5 year olds to walk to Gatlinburg from here? ie: sidewalks?
just saw the question... hopefully not too late... Yes, I would say a 5 year old would ache the ability to walk into gatlinburg from the bearskin. actually you in the Burg already, on the upper side. the bearskin is a block and half down from the main strip where about 90% of the stuff is. at any time you desire to go back you can walk or, for 50 cents ride the trolly back. hope this was helpful

is parking readily available? can you walk to Gatlinburg?
Yes, parking is available and all everything is either in walking distance or the trolley stops just in front of Bearskin Lodge. Bearskin Lodge and staff are wonderful,,,you will really enjoy your stay. Get a room on the creek side if you can.

How far is the Wild Bear Falls Water Park located from you guys?
I would say about 3 miles, time travel is hard to judge due to traffic congestion at certain times of the day.

I have booked my family into Handicap Accessible room with two queen beds and am wondering if the room has a bathtub in the bathroom?
they most certainly do. I too have physical challenges and I found the room to be quite accommodating
