I can't say enough about this resort! Not only are ALL the staff super friendly but the cabin we stayed in was spotless and smelled of fresh wood. I had a wedding to attend and when my package did not arrive in time for the wedding the staff did everything in their power to not only point me in the right direction for what I needed but offered to help me themselves finding phone numbers and addresses of places I could go to find what I need. I will be booking here again. With the friendly staff and so much to do in the area you can not miss this truly amazing experience. THANK YOU DANCING BEAR LODGE!!

Superb rustic, yet upscale accommodations. Great choice.

Upgraded room. Friendly staff and great breakfast. Overall an amazing experience.

We stayed in the Villas and it was awesome! We rented one side with queen beds and it was a good enough size for two adults. The beds were comfy and warm. The bathroom was beautiful and huge! The cabin was very clean and we even had a kitchenette! It included a microwave, sink, coffee maker and even utensils, plates, cups and wine glasses. I think our favorite part was the breakfast delivered every morning which included homemade granola. It was so yummy! We were there when the winter storm hit and the staff was very on top of making sure we had running water and the heater was working. Definitely would stay here again and recommend to couples and/or families.

Dancing Bear was the best place I could have stayed when I visited TN. I needed that relaxation away from it all and Dancing Bear delivered! I went in December and was there for the first snow. I kid you not it was beautiful, peaceful and simply amazing. The staff was always nice, always accommodating and always with a smile.

Dancing Bear Lodge was exactly what we needed for our city escape. The deluxe cabin was perfect for our needs with a hot tub, a cozy fireplace and comfy king bed. Loved that they were dog-friendly and we could bring the pups along for our vacation. The homemade granola was very yummy!

We only stayed one night at the dancing bear lodge. Our room was very spacious, clean and very charming. There were many little details that were put into the design of this room that made this a very authentic cabin in the woods. The staf was very friendly and eger to help with reservations and informing us of thing to do in the area.
