We stayed here on our anniversary in the king suite with jacuzzi tub and fireplace. The staff is friendly, everything is very clean and has the most comfortable beds! We will definitely be back and will bring our family.

My wife and I took a quick getaway after New Years tos support Gatlinburg after the fires. We had an amazing visit with Bear Skin Lodge. Great service from the desk, rooms were clean and modern. The only exception was the extremely loud bathroom fan. The breakfast was very good and in a comfortable setting on the 3rd floor, which...

This was a great location and the rooms were beautiful. We had a balcony that overlooked the street and downtown Gatlinburg, with two queen beds. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. We have stayed at a few other hotels in the area and they were in desperate need of updating. This is probably one of the most modern...

We got in later than expected on our night of check in and they were so nice and advised us we had just missed the cookies but there was some hot chocolate left which was nice with the snow coming down. There was a gas log fireplace in our room and a great view overlooking the river. Each day of...

We stayed here for an anniversary weekend in the double-queen suite room with a whirlpool and fireplace facing the city. The view is great out of the front of the hotel to the mountains and Gatlinburg below (we were on the 4th floor). The room is nicely decorated with the lodge theme. You can tell the hotel is little older,...

Needs updating- But location is good. Can walk to all attractions. Inexpensive so it's good for families wanting a hotel downtown. We were late to arrange - our first choices were full. We wanted the sister property which we're told is newer. Bed was not comfortable and linens old. Front Staff were friendly and welcoming. I would not recommended for...

had a chance to get to Gatlinburg and it was either here or the Hilton and for the money we stayed here. Got a room with 2 queens and a whirlpool for a reasonable price. Changed rooms when we got there from one queen in the back on the river to a double queen in the front. People at the...

My boyfriend and I chose to stay here during our time in Gatlinburg. Our first night there was perfect. The employees were very welcoming and full of information. On our second day, (November 28th) we woke up and it was very smoky in the downtown area. We went about our day at the aquarium then returned to our room. On...

So happy that I chose the Bearskin Lodge for our recent stay in October 2016. They were suggested by a close friend and our vacation was superb! Our room was very cozy, 2 queens, hot tub, fireplace, with a street view. We like to see what's happening outside so the street view was great, not only for people watching but...
