This was our first vacation rental of this type. I was totally impressed! The cabin was amazing. The people were fantastic and friendly! The only thing we had to do was exchange the propane tank the second day as it ran out. The views were breath taking. The cabin was even better than the pictures showed and was impeccably clean and equipped with everything we needed. We did bring paper plates, silverware and cups but the kitchen cabinets were completely stocked so we didn't need them at all. I will say the drive up the mountain road was an experience on it's own but exciting too. Just go slow and stay on your side. Lots of blind turns and curves. We were so impressed that on day our 3rd day we all said to each other we are coming back HERE next year. My 2 teenage daughters also loved the cabin and all the attractions around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Great job Aunt Bugs!!!

My husband and I stayed in Apple Bear #116 this past week. It was absolutely perfect! Exactly what we wanted, nice hot tub off the back porch with a swing overlooking a beautiful view. Everything was nice and clean very well set up and stocked. Very close to Pigeon Forge and easy to find. We are looking forward to booking another cabin in the future!

We loved our cabin. It was so comfortable and clean and beautiful. I slept so incredibly well every night. We didn’t spend anywhere near as much time at the cabin while visiting Gatlinburg as I thought we would. I think I’d really enjoy staying here at Christmas time, and we would be in the cabin more often.

We stayed at the Apple Bear View, it was a perfect cabin for the two of us. We were celebrating our 8 year Anniversary. The King size bed, was actually very comfortable. It was one of the most comfortable beds that we have slept on in a cabin. The view was really nice as well, and I love how they supply a fly swatter and bug spray for outside. Since you are partly in the woods as well. Also, another major plus, the hot water lasted a long time. Even when filling up the huge Jacuzzi tub, it was still hot after taking so long to fill it up. The housekeepers could do a little bit of a better job when it comes to dusting but overall it was the perfect cabin. *Hint* Coffee drinkers out there, the cabin is on well water, so if you don't mind that taste then you will be fine with the coffee maker, otherwise you might want to buy individual coffee drinks that you can open and drink and not have to use the well water. If we can ever get away again for just the two of us, we will be staying in this cabin again.

The cabin was a lot more than we honestly expected. Beautiful kitchen, super clean The staff from the moment we showed up in town to get keys and paper work at their office was fast and very accommodating. Beautiful cabin conveniently located to pretty much everything in town. very quiet and secluded enough. We will most definitely be coming back.

My wife and I stayed a week in A View to Remember. Spectacular views, peaceful, and fairly secluded. No problems with anything from check-in to checkout. Only complaint is that I wish they would let you check in earlier. Check in is at 4pm and paying $150/night with checkout st 10am seems a little ridiculous. But other than that definitely recommend!

Tim Richardson - 05/07/2018 5.0

Me and my wife just stayed there 5/5/2018 through 5/7/2018. Our cabin was called river sounds, exactly as described very clean when we got there and the staff were super friendly at check in. If you're looking for a secluded gateway I would definitely recommend this cabin. The only thing I didn't like was having to leave.

just me kistina - 04/26/2018 5.0

My husband & I rented through Aunt Bugs for our son's spring break. We stayed 4 days/3 nights. Aunt Bugs gave us a killer deal on a gorgeous cabin! Booking was very easy, as was checking in and out! Every staff member we encountered was amazing! They helped us plan things to do & happily answered any questions we had. The cabin, Always Misbehavin, far exceeded our expectations! The pictures online were great but still didn't do it justice! We had everything we needed- full kitchen, huge bed, pool table, jacuzzi tub (heart shaped), hot tub, porch swing, everything!- and still didn't pay as much as we would have for a hotel room! I cannot say enough good things about Aunt Bugs! We'll never stay anywhere else again!

My husband, myself and four friends rented Sweet Mojntain Laurel for a weekend and we loved it! We had zero complaints, I was actually very impressed considering the negative comments. I would highly recommend Aunt Bugs, check in and check out went flawlessly and the hospitality app was very helpful. We cannot wait to return with our kids!

You should come stay in our cabin (Golfer's Getaway) because "It doesn't get better than this!!!" 3 story, 3 bdrm, 3 bath, log cabin with our own hot tub, just a mile off the Parkway. Cozy! Clean! Small development with community pool too. We love coming here with the kids and grands! The customer service with Aunt Bugs is awesome too! Come relax in the mountain air!

I just returned home from a stay at Cherokee Nights #132. This cabin is modern and conveniently located to Pigeon Forge attractions. It had all the comforts and conveniences of home. Pet-friendly is a must, and there were sufficient grassy areas nearby for my “babies.” Aunt Bugs staff was warm and welcoming upon arrival and check-in was a breeze. The welcome packet had several useful discounts/offers. The Aunt Bugs mobile app is a handy tool and kept me well/informed. Cherokee Nights was clean and comfortable. An added bonus: the cabin was decorated for Christmas. I’ve booked and stayed with Aunt Bugs five different times and have yet to be disappointed! Keep up the good work. I’ll see you again in the Spring!!!

We loved staying here! The cabin was very clean, and we loved the rap around porch! I would definitely stay here again!! Also, I recommend Aunt Bug's Cabin Rentals for the whole family! We extremely enjoyed our stay here!

Jenny Gail - 09/30/2017 5.0

Perfect for what we needed. Cabin was beautiful and pet friendly. Only issue was the winding uphill and downhill roads leading there. It was so secluded that once you were in, you were in for the night.

Christy Allred - 07/14/2017 5.0

We just rented the cabin called Beaver Fever. I have no complaint about any aspect of our experience - from booking to checking in to staying at the cabin. It was very clean and everything there worked perfectly. We LOVED the location of this cabin, less than 3 minutes from the Parkway, and only minutes from both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. I'd definitely stay here again.

Leann Grant - 03/16/2017 4.0

Nice cabin. Very clean and everything worked and looked great. Only complaint was cabin had no outdoor seating of any kind.There was also no outside lighting except on back deck so hard to see to walk up steps Also when you look off deck there was quite a bit of trash down below. Good deal for money though if you are not hanging out outside cabin. Mountain memory 711

After we booked this cabin we began to see terrible reviews. I was very apprehensive about our stay based on all of the awful things that have been posted. However, we had a wonderful experience! We stayed in Zen Garden, and it was the perfect romantic getaway that we were looking for. It was a little dated and the hot tub cover wasn't in the best shape. Otherwise, we had absolutely no complaints. The staff at the office were very nice and accommodating. We also received a pass for one free ride at Jayell Ranch. It was a wonderful weekend!

Kelli Andrews - 02/06/2017 5.0

Great weekend in a cute well equipped cabin.. great for a couples getaway or small group. Would definitely recommend

Sarah Holland - 02/03/2017 5.0

We had a great time. Our cabin was the perfect distance from downtown but far enough away to still be secluded and quiet. Checking in and out was super easy. We plan on coming back again very soon!

We made a last minute getaway to your cabin. We've been married for 18 years and never been away without at least 1 of our 4 children for a romantic getaway. We were extremely happy and pleased with the cabin! We will definitely return. Thanks so much for all the hospitality ;). We enjoyed the hot tub immensely. Very romantic, secluded, yet still close to everything. Couldn't have asked for too much more :). Only made us see we need mommy/daddy time more often. Already looking forward to returning.

Hunters World - 01/24/2017 5.0

Location, amenities and service were all exceptional! Grab some groceries, and a few dvd movies, relax and enjoy. Ms. Patricia provided A+ customer service skills during the booking process. She was kind, informative and patient. Will come again soon.

mdawgdouglas - 01/17/2017 5.0

Everything was perfect! It was our best anniversary yet! After 15yrs of marriage this cabin gave us the perfect setting to reconnect to each other. From sitting in the hot tub watching the sunrise to relaxing by the fire, everything with the cabin was perfect. We will definitely make this our new honeymoon tradition each year!

Our first visit to Pigeon Forge and rented cabin, Under The Stars. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They even had gifts for our puppies we brought. It was dark but the directions we were given made it easy to find our cabin. The driveway was extremely steep but my full-size 2wd truck had no problem. The cabin was very clean and felt like home. Very private and quiet. You could here the creek down below while sitting on the deck. There was not one thing to complain about and we are planning many more trips and will continue to use Aunt Bug's Cabin Rentals.
