Return renter. Both cabins we had were great, easy access to, and clean upon arrival. Everything was as promised.

Buddy Bear was a great cabin in a good location. The only issue we had was in locking the entrance door when we left. There were no instructions on locking the door, but it wasn’t too difficult to figure out. It was a little tricky because the lock didn’t line up properly and will probably need replaced In the future. Also, there was no information about where the pool was located. Loved the hot tub, pool table, WiFi, and the ease of getting to the cabin.

The cabin was perfect for our little group. The code to the gate did not work though. luckily someone came out of the gate and we were ale to get in and get the correct code. Also, the hot tub didn't work when we first got there, we had to turn the breaker off then on but we got it turned on almost as soon as we got there.

We were happy with this cabin, the pictures and description on VRBO was very accurate, no surprises when we arrived. I would caution that there is parking for only one car and there is no outdoor space for a firepit. Nice place to stay when visiting Pigeon Forge.

We arrived at pigeon forge to find out that our original place rented was horrible conditions to stay in. With a 10 month old we just had to find another place to stay. Sarah and everyone else at aunt bugs found us beautiful cabin lodging. Our family was able to enjoy a beautiful vacation in the beautiful Smokey mountains. These cabins were awesome and so clean!!!!

It was very easy to book, check in, and check out. The staff was friendly that I saw. I was only there 3 days and did not have any issues or need to contact them. There were a few small issues with the cabin but otherwise was a nice place to spend the weekend.

Dawn From Wellsville

We were so very happy w our cabin! The only small things we might suggest is to clean the windows as thet were very dirty and the leather sectional couch was not hooked together so it continuously seperated. The hooks were broken or missing so we could not fix it. These matters would not deter us from coming back! Loved our stay!!

Kristy From Montgomery

Everything was nice and we enjoyed our stay. Would recommend and can't wait to come back.

Erica From Lake Lynn

Loved the cabin but it was not clean. Things on the walls were dusty, floor was filthy (had to keep your shoes on), cob webs all over the porch, porch chairs weren't clean and the blankets had stains on them. I understand it is a cabin in the woods but it really needed some TLC considering I paid a houskeeping fee and it didn't appear that housekeeping took their time cleaning. We also had to empty the garbage and run the dishwasher before we checked out so I am not exactly sure what we were paying the housekeeping fee for. Seems housekeeping must rush through and no one checks up on them to see if things are actually clean. The actually cabin was great, the staff at check-in was friendly and helpful but was really disappointed in the actual cleaniness.

Amy From Clay City

Loved our cabin. Especially the location. Check in and out was simple and fast. We were late arrival due to traffic back up and received friendly call from the office to let us know of the procedure for late check in.

We loved our stay at your beautiful cabin. We do know for next time to get one with a better view. We had an excellent time. We do plan on a return visit in the future. We liked not being on the main drag. Thank You again. Janet

Anita From Hamilton

We were very happy with our experience using aunt bugs. It was unfortunate that not enough outside chairs were provided by the cabin owner so that all four guests could sit outside. We liked that the cabin was nice and clean.

The two young ladies at the front desk were so pretty it kick off a great week end just seeing them and they were very nice to top it off.

The experience was awesome; the location our the cabinet was good. However, the king size mattress leaves a lot to be desired. I woke up with backaches each night and the curtains needs to be washed and I did dust the lamp shades in the room that I slept, dust allergies. Other than that, the cabin was beautiful and clean.

Darlene From Evans City

Oct 25, 2015


Buddy Bear was a great cabin; very beautiful. The hot tub was wonderful. Cleaning crew needs some help. Everything was dusty, many cob webs hanging from the lights to ceiling, in the railings, floors were dusty, TV's were dusty. Fireplace in the master bedroom didn't work. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. We had plenty of towels and paper products. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes and kitchen needs. Location was convenient. Privacy was good.


Oct 21, 2015


Cabin was nice and cozy. The hot tub was wonderful. We absolutely loved the convenience to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg attractions. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. However, I'm not sure why there was a tip jar in the cabin for the housekeeper.

Linda From Indianapolis

Oct 15, 2015


We really enjoyed the cabin overall. Linens & towels were clean. Nice decor, but definitely needed to be dusted/cleaned. Bathroom vent full of lint/dust.

Suzanne From Meraux

The customer service was great during our stay. The cabin was very clean and large for our needs. The price was reasonable for our cabin. I was expecting a better view of the mountains based on the pictures on the website, but we still enjoyed the view we had.

Connie From South Elgin

We totally enjoyed our stay found everything that we needed in the cabin the only problem we had was the king size bed frame needs to be tightened the boxspring kept falling through and the wifi I kept going out. We would totally stay in a cabin again!


Sep 25, 2014


We were very happy with our cabin and the service provided by Aunt Bugs. We can't wait to get back soon!

I was disappointed with the cleanliness given the cleaning fee I was charged. If you are going to charge a seperate distinct fee for cleaning, it shoud be spotless.

-How is the drive to this cabin?
The drive to this cabin is steep and windy in places . No 4 wheel drive necessary except during winter weather.
-How close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is this cabin?
This cabin is 2.7 miles from the parkway of Pigeon Forge .
-How many vehicles will fit in the driveway?
We recommend bringing no more than 2 vehicles, of any size.
-Do I need to bring extra toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, soap, etc?
YES… We provide 1 roll of toilet paper per restroom, one trash bag per trash can, 1 roll of paper towels in the kitchen. You are responsible for bringing your own extras. In this cabin, we also provide 8 towels and 8 wash clothes, 2 hand towels and dishwasher detergent. We do not provide shampoo, conditioner, lotions, laundry detergent, coffee or coffee filters, salt and pepper, charcoal for grills, daily maid service or flashlights/candles/matches (too often these items were taken home by guests so we stopped providing them).
-Is this cabin dog friendly?
NO… And we charge $500 when evidence of a dog/animal is found inside the unit.
-Can I use the fireplace year round?
No. Local fire codes restrict the use of fireplaces April through September and we take this very seriously.
-Will I encounter wildlife?
Possibly. Black bears are attracted to food, so DO NOT leave food in your vehicles or unaccompanied food on decks and porches and grills. If you want to go outside and there is a bear outside, make loud noises they will leave. If you pull up to your cabin and there is a bear in the yard, blow the horn. They will leave.
And remember, you are surrounded by flourishing nature and a national wildlife reserve, so it’s not unusual for small animals to be heard around the house or bugs to get into your cabin. We do a very good job of spotting and cleaning bugs before your arrival, but we cannot guarantee they won’t return, just as you can’t prevent 100% of bugs from entering your own home. Please be respectful of the fact that we don’t have total control over nature. Just call us, and we will send up wildlife management people or pest control to get rid of any small animals or bugs for you.

-Will the hot tub be clean for my arrival?
Absolutely. Every hot tub is emptied, cleaned and refilled between stays. In fact the water may still need time to heat up on the day of your arrival. Just keep the cover on the hot tub and turn on the jets, as this will heat the hot tub quicker. To keep your hot tub clean for the length of your stay, keep the cover on the hot tub when not using it and rinse off your skin in the shower before entering the hot tub. Unwashed skin will dirty a hot tub quickly, and we only drain & clean the hot tubs after check-out. If there is sediment in your hot tub upon check-in, it is because your cabin’s water comes from a well.

The Vacation Guarantee is 7% of your total reservation and enables you to receive a full refund, less the cost of the guarantee, up to 30 days prior to your arrival for a 1 to 4 bedroom cabin, and up to 60 days prior to arrival for 5 bedrooms and larger.
