We stayed in the Lazy Bear cabin for 3 nights, we told Noel we were getting married while we in the Smokey Mountains and what amazing gifts we received when we got to the cabin. Fresh roses a beautiful card and even decorated our bed with rose pedals and gifts for my husband and I. My daughter and I had our hair done in Pigeon Forge the morning of our wedding and we were sharing how we were welcomed by Noel and she has done several brides hair for weddings for people that come from out of state and stay in a cabin and has never heard of any other cabin owner go out of their way like Noel has. The cabin was very clean, the beds were comfy. We struggled to get the gas fire place lit and messaged Noel on how to get it lit and he immediately responded and helped us. He was very prompt on any questions we had. Made us feel very welcoming. It is less than 10 minutes to drive to pigeon Forge. Very peaceful and quiet. We definitely will be back.

The cabin was absolutely beautiful! Very clean, comfortable beds, gorgeous views, and the owner is so amazing! We will definitely be back!
It is a beautiful cabin with lots of space! It isn’t to far out but far enough away from town to enjoy the Mountains! The owners are really great with working with you and communicating. We will rent from them again for sure! -The Biggs Family
Wanted to Thank Noel and Michelle for allowing us the opportunity to rent and stay a relaxing week in Providence Cabin. My family loved every minute of it. Very spacious and just beautiful! If you are looking for a place to get away from every day life. And just relax and enjoy Gods Creation..I would most definitely recommend Providence Cabin. We definitely will be back hopefully soon.
Noel was such a great host! We would recommend this place in a heart beat! We stayed in mountain escape cabin and it was such a clean cabin! They checked on us and was very fast responding! They were a great host and the cabin is very easy to get to and very close to town! We will definitely be hosting with them again!!
We just stayed at Mountain Escape and we had the best time! The location was more than perfect! The pool was open so the kids looooved having that within walking distance ! We spent a lot of time at the cabin with the traffic that was going on this week. So blessed to have plenty of room and things to do there! Cozy beds, clean showers and literally a 2 second walk to the pool. Will definitely be booking again! Thank you for being a wonderful host!
One of the best cabins we have stayed in. Me and the kids had an awesome time! Noel was very attentive and helpful! i rate this a 5+ no doubt and will be back!

Me and my family just stayed in the mountain escape, it was so beautiful, the weather was 55 to 67 degrees the entire time, there was so many things to do out here, and everything we did was a blast, the cabin was very clean, very spacious, and had everything we needed… Very comfortable and like I said a blast!!! What a time to remember , nothing but memories with my family , also Noel was very helpful with Things to do here as well as where things were in the cabin or how things worked. I highly recommend this cabin!!!
We had such GREAT experience at the lazy bear cabin! Noel was very helpful and super cool, any question I had I would just write to him and he will respond Asap! Excellent customer service! Definitely recommended it.
Perfect setting for a QUIET getaway. Removed from high traffic parkway and noise but yet close enough to drive the mountains easily. We enjoyed cooking at the cabin and all the amenities are there and ready for you.
Noel is such an amazing person to work with, lazy bear was super comfortable and clean! We had such a great time through out the past few days. It was super wonderful getting to stay here!!! Definitely will be back one day. My family had the best time ever. This cabin is so beautiful, with the view and wild life around. Everything about this area and cabin is perfect!! Thanks again to Noel for a great time!!
We had a great time at the Providence Cabin. My wife and I and our 4 boys. It was very clean, beds were very comfortable, the view was awesome, hot tub was perfect, great fireplace, all the rooms were big with jacuzzi tubs and showers, nice wrap around porch, etc etc! One of the nicer cabins Ive ever stayed in for the price.
This cabin was exactly as described. The owner was in contact to make sure everything was good and as it should be. I loved how it wasn’t right on top of other cabins. We had plenty of room and enjoyed our stay. We will definitely check back for future trips.
The absolute best cabin stay we have ever had! Noel is wonderful to work with. He is very helpful and straight forward. The cabin was absolutely gorgeous and very clean. We enjoyed our stay so so much and cannot wait to book again through Noel!
Cabin was perfect. Was very pretty. Looked just like in the pictures. Rooms and bathroom were very large. Cabin was clean. We liked being out away from all the crowds and traffic. Was a nice county ride to town when we went but wasn’t to far out. Noel was great t work with and we will defiantly always check for availability on his properties before we plan a trip.
Our stay at the Providence cabin was great. We enjoyed the hot tub every night, it was so relaxing after a long day of exploring Gaitlinburg/Pigeon Forge. Noel was filled with lots of tips and information to make the most of our stay. Thanks to Noel and the outdoor cameras for warning us of the bear hanging out around the cabin the morning we left! We definitely recommend the cabin and look forward to future stays!!
From booking the cabin to actually staying in it, it was an amazing experience. Noel has so much insight from restaurants to trails to entertainment. The cabin was as advertised and beautiful. There was a fully stocked kitchen, stocked bathrooms with all the necessary items needed for your stay. The hot tub was an additional bonus that I didn’t know I needed until I got in it, lol! It even snowed our last day there!! I highly recommend Lazy Bear Cabin to anyone!!

It’s beautiful views.. you won’t be disappointed at all…!! We stayed at the Lazy Bear cabin..!! If you want just a weekend getaway or a week getaway this is the perfect cabin to stay at…!! Thanks again Noel
We stayed at the Providence Cabin from Dec 29-Jan 2. The cabin is immaculate and its perfect for a family of 6. It not far from Pigeon Forge but is very quiet. Noel is very helpful and will answer any question within minutes. I 100% recommend this cabin.
The experience is cozy, warm, fun, great memories and brings everyone together
We had a great time this past week. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The Christmas lights was great. It was very quiet at the cabin which was great.

Booking our getaway cabin with Noel was simple. He truly cared by making sure we enjoyed our time from check in to check out and the whole stay. My family and I loved the cabin and his attentiveness so much we will continue to book through Smoky Mountain Life. The cabin was clean, cozy and had an amazing view.
We stayed at Providence the last weekend of January 2021. We had a great time with a great view. The house was perfect with a downstairs with pool table and bar. The jacuzzi was big and took a bit to heat up but once it was heated it was perfect all week end. We did lose water for about half the day saturday due to a local well problem but was eventually fix. We just went out and bought waters. Gas station was close by, we did run out of a few things like trash bags, paper towels, dishwasher soap and there wasn’t any dishsoap/sponges but this didnt ruin the experience and if we do it again we probably woulndnt use as many dishes as we did. All in all a pretty fantastic weekend with a great view, awesome hottub. Filled with countless hours downstairs drinking, playing pool and listening to a huge CD collection left by the owners! We will for sure be returning here! Thanks!

We had the pleasure of staying at this cabin recently. It is beautiful and Noel is so helpful and knows the area well! The views were awesome and the cabin is in the best location close to everything you need to visit while staying there. This is a very clean cabin with the most comfortable bed! We can’t wait to stay again! Thank you for the surprise birthday cake and t-shirts Noel. That was so thoughtful of you.
We had a wonderful stay for thanksgiving at the providence cabin! The cabin was clean, beautiful with amazing views. Noel was wonderful as well. Highly recommend!
We can’t recommend the providence cabin enough! Best honeymoon ever! 10/10 you will not regret it! Can’t wait to come back!
This place is amazing! It’s VERY clean, close to all major attractions (but not too close) and the owner takes a lot of pride in the quality of his cabin
Noel’s hospitality is top notch! This was our first time in the area and he made sure to recommend all his favorites and the most well known attractions in the area. We stayed in Lazy Bear and it was perfect for our family. We had a couple of nights where we just stayed in and ordered take out or cooked and the kitchen was perfect. We loved relaxing in the jacuzzi with the chilly nights we had, and we got the best sleep from the comfortable beds! We will be reaching back out to Smoky Mountain Life when we return!
Jessica Loucas Fontaine
We stayed at the Providence cabin the first week of November. The property is beautiful, close enough to amenities, and very private yet easy to access. The house is spacious, it has 2 good sized master suites, the beds are comfortable, and we enjoyed the hot tub and pool table. We will definitely be back!
We recently stayed at Lazy Bear Cabin and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin is very well kept, clean, great location, and far enough away but close enough if you need anything. It is well stocked with items you normally need for a week’s stay. Noel and Michelle are great hosts and are very attentive to any of your needs or questions. We have stayed in many different cabins in the area and this is one of the best! We would definitely recommend this cabin and plan on staying here again!!
Loved our stay!!! Cabin was very clean and so pretty
We stayed in Providence this weekend and absolutely loved the beautiful, clean cabin. I was worried the 10 mile drive to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area may be too long, but it wasn’t at all. Beautiful scenery the entire way. The manager checked in often to make sure everything was perfect for us, and it was. We 100% would stay in this cabin again and recommend it to all of our friends!

My Husband & I just got back from celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary at the Lazy Bear Cabin. We were greeted with an anniversary card, flowers and t-shirts from Noel & his wife. Extremely thoughtful and generous. Noel was very efficient from the first time we reached out to him to book till we had to say goodbye. No matter day or night he was available to answer any questions. Our stay was top notch. The cabin had everything and more for a relaxing trip. The hot tub was a favorite and is now on our wish list for home We like to be secluded, away from traffic areas, this cabin was the ticket for us. We will definitely be coming back!! Thanks again Noel, we look forward to what’s in store for you in your future. We can understand why you want to continue to grow in TN!
Suzie Lunsford Sowards
So beautiful and relaxing! Can’t wait to come back! The owner made sure everything was perfect!
It’s true what they say about a visit to the Smokies! . We had a great time at our stay here in the smokies! Lazy Bear Cabin was a wonderful cozy cabin to stay in. Thanks so much Noel and Michelle for sharing your place! Your hospitality and guidance of the area was perfect! We made so many great memories here! The beauty of this area is spectacular. So much to do and the location of your cabin is perfect! Our time and experience is hard to express in words as I’m still so full of joy! Let’s just say, we all smile when we talk about or think about our time here. Great memories made for sure! Love the Smokies and Lazy Bear Cabin! Thanks again! Bob, Tammy, Tata, Ashton.
We had the best experience staying here it is by far the best place we have ever stayed we were satisfied
Great place to stay! We were very pleased with this cabin. We would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful cabin. Owner is very nice and if you have any questions or concerns he is available to talk to you Definitely would recommend
This cabin is one of the best we have stayed at we was there 3 days and spent most of our time in the cabin. We only live like hour and half away so we come to the area offten so this time was just for us to spend time together and celebrate our 20th anniversary and this cabin just made it easy to relax and enjoy. The location is perfect is far enough away so you don’t feel like your on top of everything and that everyone is on top of you but yet it is so close to everything at the same time my husband and I are both in an agreement this will become our regular cabin when we are not staying in our regular motel. The owner Noel is absolutely amazing he checked in with us to make sure everything was to our liking and no issues and may I had he makes sure there is everything you could need in the cabin and this is the 1st for us they literally have everything from band-aids to your shampoo and conditioner and all the appliances you could need the layout of this cabin is beautiful and my husband and I really enjoyed just being there and with each other and we spent so much time just playing pool he has all ready asked when we coming back so I need to be trying to figure our schedules and getting us back there.

We just got home from staying at Lazy Bear Cabin. I didn’t want to leave. The place was beautiful and very clean. Me and my new husband needed this sooooooo much. I would recommend this to everyone!! Noel is great. Very helpful and always checking to make sure everything is alright. Our second day there, we lost power. Noel did everything possible to find out when the power would be turned back on. Thanks again Noel. We will be back!!
Great place everything we expected and more we will be back.
Spent four days three night. comfortable,cozy, clean, equipped with everything you need. even with cool weather was nice and relaxing. looking forward to going back, and hopefully seeing the bear next time. easy and accessible for older couples.
We had the amazing pleasure of staying at Lazy Bear Cabin for the last week! Our experience was phenomenal! This was our first trip to East TN from Michigan! Noel & Michele went above and beyond for our family! From the moment we booked the cabin they were helpful with attractions, recommendations, and so much more! When we arrived we were surprised with a gift for my 30th birthday which was super sweet! The cabin was breathtaking! So many amenities, the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in! Gorgeous views from the back deck, the hot tub felt so amazing and it was nice to have a roof so we could enjoy it in the rain! I am pretty sure we played more pool this week then we have in our entire life, enjoyed a ton of great movies through the cable tv, relaxed in the jacuzzi tub, and did plenty of exploring! The cabin had everything we needed for our week long vacation and we can’t wait to come back!
Just stayed March 12-15 and it was beautiful. Coziest cabin and the beds are insanely comfy. Owner is super helpful as well. 10/10!
My girlfriend and I spent a beautiful weekend at the cabin. we celebrated our 2 year dating anniversary and I proposed in the evening by the fire. This is a great cabin that offers lots to do. Would highly recommend it for couples or families to enjoy.
We stayed here February 17-20, could not ask for anything better! Spacious rooms, comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen. And the cabin itself is absolutely beautiful. The owner, Noel, is hands down the best! So easy to work with, checked in daily to see if we needed anything and to make recommendations. We will definitely be back to stay at the Lazy Bear cabin! Thank you Noel for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cabin! Can’t wait to come back!
Maridath N Wayland Broyles

Kim Collier Schumacher
My husband and I are so loving our stay at Lazy Bear!! And Noel and Michelle so graciously had a beautiful gift waiting for us upon our arrival to help celebrate our anniversary! We HIGHLY recommend this cabin to anyone looking in the area. This is our 12th year coming to this area for our anniversary, and without a doubt the best experience we have ever had with our cabin rental!! It’s beautiful, clean, private, and a beautiful view. Every detail has been thought of and taken care of by the owners. Thank you again, Noel and Michelle!!
Our family of 5 stayed just stayed in this wonderful cabin. I have nothing but great things to say. The location was just right! Not too far away from town but far enough out to be peaceful and private . The driveway was also good to travel on which was a biggie for me ! Noel( the owner) was absolutely great ! He stayed in contact from before our stay until the end . Could not have been nicer or more helpful ! The hot tub, pool table and cozy fire place were extras that we greatly enjoyed . Our stay was shortly after Christmas so the cabin was decorated and felt like home . While we were out during the day, our 10 yr old grandson kept asking to go back to the cabin! .We will definitely rent again as soon as our schedules allow another trip!
This cabin is amazing. Great views, clean, and cozy. Hosts are fabulous and checked in daily making sure everything was ok and ready to provide suggestions on things in the area. We loved the hot tub. Great location for heading to GSMNP, Pigeon Forge, or Gatlinburg. We will definitely be back!!!
Very clean and peaceful, enjoyed the hot tub, jacuzzi tub, pool table, and the view was breathtaking. Prices are very reasonable, I would definitely recommend you try Lazy Bear cabin, the owner is amazing with instant response time and recommendations.

Cabin is the definition of peace and quiet! Beautiful rustic setting with every comfort you could want. Owners are the best, go above and beyond in every way, always available for questions or advise. Fully supplied kitchen, linens, laundry, very comfortable bed, furniture. Very clean and well furnished. Short drive to all the area attractions, dining, and shopping. Accurate GPS navigation in area. Get familiar with backroads and bypass the traffic and you are ready for a great relaxing vacation
Natosha Hilliker Fielder
Perfect! My husband, my 18yr old son and myself stayed 11/18-11/23 and enjoyed every minute at Lazy Bear Cabin. Its far enough away for peace and quiet, even though there are other cabins near by, yet still close enough to all the attractions, restaurants and shopping. We even stayed in one day and enjoyed the hot tub, pool table and coffee on the porch. Owner checked in by text regularly to make sure we had everything we needed, and even had snacks and Tshirts waiting on us. Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed to be comfortable. We can’t wait to return hopefully in the spring
We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked for July everything was perfect and very relaxing have to but can’t wait to go back
Amazing! Very clean and easy to get to cabin! Bike friendly! The owners are great and honest people! Good times! We will be back! Highly recommend!
My family and I stayed at Lazy Bear Cabin 10/19/19-10/24/19. The cabin was very clean, the beds and couches were very comfy, and we loved how private the location was. The deck in the back where the jacuzzi is located is private with a beautiful view of the mountains. The pool table and foosball table were also a plus. The owner Noel was a pleasure to work with. He was very helpful from booking and directions to suggestons on things to do and places to eat. He kept in touch throughout our stay to make sure we were ok and having a good time. We could tell how important it was to him that we had a great experience making memories with our little family. We can’t wait to stay with Smoky Mountain Life again. Thank you for everything! – The Crucet/Medina family
We spent Nov 4-6 at The Lazy Bear Cabin and absolutely loved it. The location is close enough to town if you need something and far enough out it is peaceful (no city noise). Used google maps and had no problem finding it. The road up is a beautiful drive and easy. Noel is a wonderful host and took care of all our questions. Can’t wait to book our next stay as soon as I figure out the dates we can travel again.
Becky and Wayne
We just returned from our vacation at Lazy Bear Cabin, and it was great! Just outside of town, only 8 minutes drive. The cabin is very nice, all you need, and super clean! The back deck is private, all the furniture is comfortable, and we really enjoyed being there. Noel and Michelle are very nice, checking to see if you need anything after you get there, and if a problem comes up, all you have to do is let him know, and he’ll take care of it ASAP! They truly care that you enjoy staying in their cabin. We would love to come back soon!
Karen Bailey Walkup
We have had a great time here at Lazy Bear Cabin, we have made a lot of memories here and have been to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge shopping, visiting places, going to shows, and eating at some great places. I would recommend staying here to anyone cause it will not disappoint anyone. The cabin was decorated so Beautifully and so much to do here at the cabin from getting in the hot tub to go enjoy a fire at the fire pit outside. Thank you so much to Noel Bohrer for letting us stay here and always making sure all is OK during your stay and the recommendations for places to go and see.
Teresa Hill Peterson
We stayed 4 nights at this great cabin and could not be any happier with our stay. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with anything we needed. I hope to be lucky enough to stay here again next year.
We just spent 4 nights at the Lazy Bear and it was very relaxing – quiet area – clean and comfortable!! Noel was very helpful with questions before & during our stay
My family and I just spent the weekend at the Lazy Bear cabin. It was perfect, the cabin is clean, well organized, and comfortable. Noel is super responsive, and had everything ready for our arrival. We could not have enjoyed our stay more, it was just a perfect weekend, and we will be back. Thank you for everything!
Jobi Anne Tabler
Amazing! We just spent a week at the Lazy Bear cabin- and it was as close to home as we could have imagined! Noel went above and beyond to make our stay as easy and relaxing as possible. From the outdoor fire pit right by the deck- and charcoal grill- ( the bear outside was just over the top!!!!) to new appliances in the kitchen (even new items on the day of arrival!) to the hot tub and all around decor- it was one of the best weeks we have ever had down in the Smoky’s! Can’t wait to come back!
Just got back from our stay at lazy bear! This was my 5 year olds first big vacation & she never wanted to leave the cabin & keeps saying she wants to go to Tennessee forever! Me too! We had a wonderful stay the cabin is clean & beautiful!
5 stars!!! This cabin is AMAZING!! Decorated just right…easy to find but you still have privacy!!! The owners must know what people want because everything is on point. Not only are the owners available to assist you they want you to have the Best and Most Comfortable stay ever. I could use another week or 2 or forever being here. I highly recommend taking advantage of their pots and pans and cook or grill at home!! It was so much fun with 2 teenagers. I’ll be posting videos and pics soon. If you are on the fence do it now and book because we have already requested our next dates. Thanks Again!! #lazybearrocks
The cabin is amazing and the owners are also amazing I would totally recommend
5 Stars from us!!! My family (me and the hubby as well as my parents) just got home from a wonderful weekend in our favorite place where we stayed at the Lazy Bear Cabin. We have been coming to the area and renting cabins for 5 years now. We have never stayed in the same cabin twice until now. Out of all of the cabins this one has been the cleanest and most organized of them all. It has just about everything you will need even a first aid box that I have never seen in a cabin before. It is private and secluded for the area but still just 10 minutes to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Love that the hot tub is private. It is beautifully decorated. The pool table and foosball table are nice touches for hanging out at the cabin. Though we didn’t get a chance to enjoy them this trip the chairs, fire pit, grill and picnic table is outside is an added bonus. As for the owner he goes above and beyond to make sure it was stocked with everything you need to have a great stay and enjoy your vacation. He always gets right back to you with a call or text. We cannot wait to come for our stay in October. We will defiantly be returning time and time again. We highly recommend the Lazy Bear Cabin!

We arrived on Monday. In tow with our 4 kids (20,17, 9 and for our 5 night stay. Waking at 06:30 and getting back after 11 each night. We had a full itinerary. The cabin was located in the perfect location for us. The drive was simple. No doubt the showers and baths didn’t fail our party of 6! We had no problems getting showered ( for that I’m an extremely thankful). Thank you again Mr. Noel for checking on us several times through out our stay. This was our first family of 6 vacation and we enjoyed every minute of it! I’ll surely recommend the lazy bear cabin to anyone I know heading that way!
