    Absolutely divine meal at the Appalachian Bistro! Our cabin,Metcalf Bottoms, was charming and immaculate. Loved the hot tub on the deck. Granddaughter enjoyed nightly s'mores around the fire by the restaurant. Friendly staff. Beautiful surrounding. We had a great stay.

    The cabin we stayed in was wonderful. Clean, comfortable, and included delicious granola and yogurt for breakfast. I will definitely return to Dancing Bear Lodge when I return to the Great Smoky Mountains!

    Dancing Bear was untouched. The fires were in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Not where Dancing Bear is located. Hope this helps!
