Such great get away for our honeymoon!
This cabin is elegant - the wood work is beautiful. Located minutes from Pigeon Forge, we had easy access to so many activities. The hot tub on a private deck is a particularly welcome treat as fall evening temperatures fall. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We had a wonderful vacation and the cabin completely exceeded our expectations. The whole process (renting, arriving and departing) were simple and easy to follow. After long days of being at the baseball field and/or sightseeing it was so nice to come “home” to Are We Bear Yet. Would definitely recommend.
We had a nice stay at the cabin with our two young boys. The boys loved the bear decor throughout the property and the cabin was just as described. The cabin was the perfect location to get to the PF strip as well as the Dollywood parks - it took about 10 minutes to get to the parks on back roads without any traffic. We visited the main pool in the Alpine Valley resort and it was a great size and not overly crowded.
Perfect location and beautiful cabin. We definitely enjoyed our stay.
“Great place to stay. Had a fun time. Will definitely stay again. Would recommend it to everyone.”

Confirmation of the reservation and a copy of these Terms and Conditions will be emailed to guest(s) upon receipt of the booking deposit (or entire payment if reservation is less than 60 days or less prior to scheduled arrival). Please read the confirmation for accuracy of dates, mailing address, number of adults and/or children and accommodations. Guest(s) must notify us immediately of any discrepancies in the reservation. Guest(s) agree to email Rent Cabins And Condos LLC the names and ages of all Guest(s) who will be staying at the property. Guest(s) will be provided via email, the address, access and directions information to the property FIVE (5) days prior to your scheduled arrival date. This information will ONLY be released to the registered guest that did the booking. Please be sure to provide us with a working cell phone number so that, if needed, we may reach you during or prior to your stay.
CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT: Check-in is AFTER 4:00 pm EST and check-out is BEFORE 10:00 am EST.No exceptions. Housekeeping must be able to enter the cabin by 10:00 am. Please realize that they only have a limited amount of time to get the property prepared for the next guests, so please be on time. If you have not left the cabin when housekeeping arrives, you will be charged a fee of $100. If your late check-out prevents the next guest from checking in on time, then you will be charged for an additional night rent and taxes plus penalties. During peak season, some properties may not be ready by 4:00 p.m., and your patience is appreciated. Lessor will use reasonable efforts to have the rental property ready for guest(s) occupancy at check-in time, but Lessor cannot guarantee the exact time of occupancy. The cleaning staff reserves the right to occupy the unit until it is clean and ready for your check-in. NO compensation of any type will be given to the guest(s), including but not limited to: cleaning delays for any reason including inclement weather conditions, excessive cleaning as a result of a previous guest(s) rental, rare or unforeseen circumstances. No early check-in is permitted. This agreement does not create a tenancy or residence. Guest must depart at the appropriate time.
Bring a flashlight to see the keyless entry system after dark. We try to leave a porch light on but this is not always the case.
CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY: We have a NO REFUND policy. This includes cancellation of an event you planned to attend or participate during your stay; late arrivals and early departures for any reason do not warrant any refund. If you decide you need a larger or smaller or a different cabin for ANY reason you will not be refunded ANY money. Your first payment is due at the time of reservation. This payment is applied to your total, and the final payment is due 60 days before your scheduled check in date. When you reserve Are We Bear Yet, we take it off the “available list”. Hence, other interested guests cannot make a reservation that includes a date you have reserved. Since vacation resort rentals are normally booked well in advance of arrival, rebooking is unlikely. Since Are We Bear Yet is a one-unit cabin owned by individual owners we highly encourage you to consider purchasing trip-cancellation insurance. We provide recommended travel insurance information for guests booking our properties. Optional travel insurance is available for guests that feel it necessary.
RESCHEDULING POLICY: We have a “no-rescheduling” policy. This includes all rescheduling for any reason. If you decide to add nights to your current booking, please let us know so we can verify availability. If additional nights are available in conjunction with your current booking, we will provide information to you as to how to add more nights.

A travel insurance plan can help cover your vacation investment. Specific coverage questions should be directed to Travel Guard (1.877.246.5376 or www.travelguard.com/astp). Please refer to product number 008573/008574 P1 & account # 97908.

We will be happy to confirm all data and information contained herein or will be glad to answer any questions you may have prior to booking your reservation. Rental rates and fees are subject to change and subject to prior booking without notice, until Rent Cabins And Condos LLC has confirmed your reservation. You may view photos of our property on our website or advertising listings. Photographs are meant ONLY to give a general feel for the property; specific furnishings and décor items change from time to time and may vary from the photographs.
FURNISHINGS: Furnishings are subject to change without notice. Furniture, bedding, mattress pads, utensils or any other property supplied with the rental property must not be taken out or transferred from one property to another. Loss of these items, as well as damage to the property or furnishings in excess of normal wear will be charged to the guest(s).
HOT TUB: Hot tubs have been cleaned prior to your arrival. If there is any problem with the hot tub, contact us! DO NOT enter the hot tub if there are mechanical or electrical problems. There will be a $50.00 charge if guests require an additional cleaning of the hot tub during guests stay. For guests’ safety and health, each hot tub is drained, cleaned, disinfected, refilled, chemically treated, and tested following each stay. Bromine is used to maintain water quality. The floater (chemical dispenser) must remain in the hot tub at all times. Use of the hot tub is at guest(s) own risk. Prior to use, consult a physician if you have any questions or concerns regarding use of a hot tub. Pregnant women and women who may possibly be pregnant, and guest(s) with pre-existing health conditions, sensitive or allergies or susceptibilities to chemicals, high or low blood pressure, circulatory system problems, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, thyroid disease, multiple sclerosis, etc. or guest(s) consuming alcohol or taking medications which induce drowsiness, such as tranquilizers, anti-histamines or anti-coagulants should NOT use the hot tub. Please do not stand or place objects on top of the hot tub cover. If the hot tub cover is damaged, there will be a $500 charge to guest’s credit/debit card.
HOT TUB SAFTEY: Enter and Exit the hot tub slowly and carefully. The steps may become slippery when wet! Never use the hot tub during a thunderstorm! For your health, we follow the guidelines set by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission and the National Spa and Pool Institute for maintaining proper water temperature in our hot tubs. The water temperature should NOT exceed 104 degrees F (40 degrees Celsius) at any point in time. They cite that high water temperatures can cause drowsiness to occur that may lead to unconsciousness and drowning. The hot tub water will also raise your body temperature, and thus your blood pressure that may lead to heat stroke and death. A safe soaking time should NOT exceed 15 – 20 minutes. Prolonged usage can lead to rashes, a variety of heart related illnesses such as stroke, heart attack, nausea, heat stroke, brain damage and death. Some medical authorities have recommended a lower temperature of 100 – 102 degrees F maximum. Generally, 100 – 102 degrees seems to be accommodating to all bathers and is NOT considered a health risk for a healthy adult.
JACUZZI BATH TUB: Use of the Jacuzzi bathtub is at the guest(s) own risk. Never use the jetted tub in a thunderstorm! DO NOT turn on the jets to the tub until all of the jets are completely covered with water. Turning on the jets prior to them being fully covered with water will damage the motor. *Caution - When entering areas that are near water or moisture sources, the flooring in the region of the water may become slippery when wet or damp. This includes but is not limited to: showers, sinks, indoor jetted tubs, outdoor hot tubs, and pools. All guest(s) assume the risk of injury when entering these areas that contain a water or moisture source and will hold Rent Cabins And Condos LLC and property owner harmless with respect thereto.
FIREPLACE: The fireplace is seasonal and is non-operational from May 1st through October 1st. DO NOT use the fireplace unless the outside temperature is suitable for a fire. DO NOT set the heating and air conditioning (HVAC) system thermostat to COOL or leave the exterior doors or windows open while the fireplace is in use. The (HVAC) unit will continue to run and may “Freeze Up”, as the HVAC system thermostat will not be able to appropriately respond to the temperature inside the property. DO NOT attempt to alter the fireplace or fireplace timer in any manner or use during the OFF Season. A $100 charge will be made to the credit/debit card on file if the fireplace is used during the OFF Season. Gas fireplaces have a pilot light that stays on during the ON Season. Gas logs are NOT to be rearranged for any reason. The logs are designed to burn cleanly without emitting harmful carbon monoxide gas and need to be in a particular arrangement. Rearranging the logs can be very dangerous causing the fireplace not to burn cleanly and thus emit carbon monoxide gas. DO NOT throw or place any foreign items especially non-combustible or dangerous materials into the fireplace. DO NOT attempt to cook food!! DO NOT leave the fireplace turned on while unattended or if you leave the property. Lessor and/or owner assume NO responsibility for any potential liability or damages that are the result of guest(s) failure to abide by these policies. Guest(s) are responsible for any damages caused by use of the fireplace.
REFRIGERATOR AND REFRIGERATOR CONTROLS: When you enter the property, the refrigerator will be clean and empty. Icemakers will be emptied and turned off. Your personal food that may have warmed since the time you purchased it will cause the refrigerator to work very hard. It may take a while for the refrigerator to catch up. This process may take up to 12 – 24 hours. To help your items cool faster, minimize opening the refrigerator during the first few hours. Be patient. We recommend bringing a bag of ice to get a jump-start. DO NOT adjust the cooling setting any cooler than the factory recommended medium setting! Turning the settings cooler than medium can cause the refrigerator or freezer to overload, stop working or cause a defrost cycle to occur. It can take up to 24 hours for the refrigerator to recover once the defrost cycle has started.
THERMOSTAT: Some of our properties have a thermostat “LOCK OUT” feature. This feature is used to prevent the heat & air unit’s compressor from “freezing up” the coils in the summer due to turning the cooling setting below 65 degrees or use of the fireplace in warmer weather and then turning the air conditioning on. If the coils freeze up, this will leave the system unable to cool for up to 12 hours or more. DO NOT attempt to force the thermostat Above 75 degrees in the winter or Below 65 Degrees in the summer. It is “LOCKED OUT” at these temperatures and you will break the thermostat. If you break the thermostat, a $250 replacement fee will be charged to the credit/debit card on file. The thermostat must NOT be changed to the “ON” setting. It must remain on the “AUTO” setting at all times. *DO NOT run the air conditioner with exterior doors or windows open because the coils will “freeze up”!
SOFA SLEEPERS: Our sofa sleepers are not designed for adults or much weight even if children are using them. Guest(s) agree not to leave sheets, blankets, or quilts on the sofa sleeper mattress or pillows between the mattress when folding up the sleeper sofa between uses or upon departure. The sofa sleeper mechanism will break due to the extra bulk in the unit.
AIR MATTRESSES: Air mattresses are NOT allowed under any circumstances. Don’t bring any with you.
WASHER/DRYER: A washer & dryer are provided so guest(s) may wash and freshen up their linens and towels as needed. Guest(s) agree to empty the lint trap in the dryer after each load of laundry dried.
WATER, SEWER & DRAINS; This cabin has city water & city sewer. DO NOT flush anything other than toilet paper. NO feminine products should be flushed at any time. If there is blockage after guest(s) departure and a plumber determines that foreign materials or feminine products were put into the toilet or drain, the guest(s) agree to a minimum of $200 charge to the credit/debit card on file. Guest(s) agree to leave all drains “free running” as they were upon arrival. Guest(s) agree that they will place all cooking grease, bagged, and in the outside garbage cans and will NOT pour any cooking grease down the kitchen sink, any other drain, or in the toilet. We recommend freezing any grease in a can before disposing.
LOCKED AREAS: Guest(s) agree NOT to tamper with or enter any locked area containing the owner’s personal effects. These areas are NOT included in the rental. If locked areas are found to be tampered with, guest(s) agree to pay for any damages, loss (missing items) and/or repair resulting from their entry of the locked area.
PEST & THE SMOKY MOUNTAIN ENVIROMENT: A licensed Pest Control company services this cabin on a regular basis, with precise and complete preventative treatments in an effort to keep all the pests and bugs outside. Ladybugs and Carpenter Bees are seasonal but common to the area. The National Forest Service disperses millions of Ladybugs each year. Guest(s) may find an “uninvited guest” in the form of one of Mother Nature’s small creatures. Guest(s) are staying in the heart of A National Forest/Wooded Mountain area. This does create certain challenges. We do appreciate our guest(s) understanding and hope you will enjoy the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains and all of “God’s creatures big and small.” Should you experience a MAJOR pest control issue, please contact us so we may attempt to eradicate the problem. We DO NOT guarantee that your cabin will be pest or creature free in the Smoky Mountains and we DO NOT offer refunds or discounts for these types of occurrences.
CRITTERS & WILDLIFE: There are a number of different animals and wildlife species you may encounter during your stay. It is imperative that you DO NOT feed any animals you come in contact with. Feeding the animals directly or by not securing your garbage cans will be very dangerous. No refunds will be given for raccoon or bear sightings. This is the mountains and the bears do live here. DO NOT leave garbage bags or food in containers or coolers on the open decks or the exterior of the cabin as raccoons, bears, stray dogs, stray cats, and other wildlife will snack on anything left outside! Please do your part by keeping windows and doors closed, all food inside, and garbage in the appropriate outside latched receptacles.
SYSTEM FAILURE: In case of failure of a system or amenity during your stay, including but not limited to, water, sewer, heating, air-conditioning, electrical, mechanical, ventilating, structural systems, major appliances, or entertainment equipment, we shall promptly repair them. You agree to permit access to the cabin to make repairs. We shall not be liable to you for damages, and NO REBATE OR REFUND will be given for such temporary failure, provided we are able to repair the system or amenity in a reasonable manner after having received notice from you that repairs are needed. ALL REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE ARE PERFORMED BY OUTSIDE CONTRACTORS. EMERGENCIES TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER NON-EMERGENCIES. IF REPAIR IS NEEDED, WE ARE AT THE MERCY OF THE SCHEDULE OF THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN. IF PARTS ARE NEEDED AND HAVE TO BE ORDERED, WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER DELIVERY SCHEDULES OR STORE HOURS.
AMENITIES OFFERED: Everything will be done to make sure what was offered in any advertising will be in the property as described. There may be times when the exact amenities are not in the property. Every attempt is made to keep the inventory as advertised. A difference in amenities does not entitle you to any refund of rents paid. Amenities may be added or removed at the owners’/manager’s discretion. Example: We may have advertised 8 DVD players; one may be out for service. That does not warrant any refund.
ACTS OF GOD: We shall not be liable for events beyond our control which interfere with your scheduled occupancy, including but not limited to, Acts of God, acts of governmental agencies, fire, strikes, war, tornado, ice storm, severe weather, inclement weather, loss of electricity, or loss of water. NO REBATE OR REFUND shall be given in these circumstances.
ERRORS/OMISSIONS: Double booking is extremely rare. We will be careful to avoid conflicts with reservations; however, if through error/omission, other tenants are occupying the rental unit or the unit is otherwise unavailable for any reason on the dates of the rental agreement, we will attempt to find a substitute accommodation of a similar quality/price range when the error is discovered. If there is no replacement property found or if you reject the replacement, a refund of rents and fees you paid shall be your sole remedy for any and all damages, liability or inconvenience arising out of the double booking. In no event will renter be permitted to demand removal of those occupying the rental unit.
SHORT-TERM RENTAL: It is expressly understood and agreed that this is a short-term vacation rental and is not a lease or other long-term residential tenancy agreement. This agreement is only for the use of the property for the stated term. It creates no property rights in you, the guest, and no rights to renewal or for recurring usage. Any payment received by Rent Cabins And Condos LLC from renter(s) for occupancy of vacation property indicates the acceptance of the terms and conditions of this rental agreement.

Some of our electronic equipment is equipped with theft control devices both overt and covert. Tampering with wires can set off a continuous alarm on equipment that can only be turned off by us.
