Property Management Owner Testimonials

Read testimonials from our property owners in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville about how our vacation rental management practices have helped them earn more from their properties.
After managing my own rental for many years, I decided to let Bear Camp Cabins take the headaches out of the loop.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that my Net Income doubled, an accurate and easy to understand operating expenses report was provided each month, and minor to average repairs & maintenance are provided for.  Bear Camp also mandates quality from its owners which translates into repeat Guests and word-of-mouth referrals.  Although we don't live in a perfect World, my life is much easier now and we have a lot more free time.

Christy and I are extremely grateful we have Bear Camp Cabin Rentals managing our cabin, Bearly Behavin. We live 6.5 hours from Pigeon Forge, but knowing they are there gives us so much peace of mind!! Our cabin is thriving and currently has a five star rating. We would like to thank Bear Camp Cabin Rentals for keeping our cabin cleaned and maintained in order to have such a great rating. They truly go above and beyond and are always available either by phone or email if needed. We simply feel that we could not have a better company managing our cabin and are very blessed to have found them!!

John, Michelle, Alyssa, and the team at Bear Camp Cabin Rentals have gone above and beyond my expectations. They run their business the old fashioned way with integrity and honesty.

I began my relationship with Bear Camp a little over 8 years ago. While setting up financing and insurance, I questioned five different sources locally involved with the rental business in Sevier County. I asked for three recommended companies to use for management. Bear Camp was the one consistent name that kept coming up. 8 years later, I could not be more pleased. I have received personal service for every concern large or small. My occupancy rate has consistently increased each year. During the fires, Bear Camp kept me informed of status until the area was opened for limited personnel other than emergency staff. I know the staff by name and have their contact information. I have had the pleasure of watching them grow yet remain a smaller company with personal touches. I feel my cabin is in good hands. They, as a management company, and I, as an owner, have common goals, providing the best possible vacation experience for each guest.

Bear Camp is the BEST!! They really care. My place is cleaner than it ever was with another (to remain nameless) company. If there is a problem, they let us know right away and help us to correct it. Our rentals are better than ever; last year was a record breaker for us. THANK YOU BEAR CAMP!!!

It just came to my attention that we have had our vacation rentals in your care for 9 years. WOW did time fly; it seems as if it were only a few years. Of course, we had several years working through the Gatlinburg fire ordeal. I want to thank you and the staff as y'all helped us work through the ordeal of losing 2 properties and cleaning up the remaining. During this time, we went through cleanup and rebuilding one of the sites. That was quite a process, and you were there to help every time we needed it. Even introducing us to our contractor (Ben Vaughn). I had interviews with 3 other contractors and was ready to say, "That is it, we'll just keep the one property we had left and be happy." I am glad we didn't!!!! We were able to build something far beyond our expectations! And to top it all, the rentals have also passed our expectations, and you were there through all the experience to assist us in the right decisions. Having been in the rental market for the past 27 years, I've never had this excellent service and friendship. Again, thanks to you and the staff.

Bear Camp has been the management company for my cabins for the past 4 years. I initially started Bear Camp 4 years ago with only one rental cabin, and I felt so comfortable with the Bear Camp team that I have increased my inventory to 3 cabins. The Bear Camp management team is reliable, trustworthy, clean, courteous, and everything I need to keep the rental customers coming. They let me know when something needs repaired and they get multiple bids for my review. They have provided the utmost in detail when it comes to servicing customers and keeping my cabins clean and fresh.

I researched all the cabin management companies in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area before finally selecting Bear Camp Cabins. All the other companies came across like used car salesmen offering 1 year guarantees with high split percentages and fees without the performances. Bear Camp separates itself from everyone else by offering the most marketing vehicles, the lowest split percentages, and great customer service. One of the best values of using Bear Camp is the family/friendship atmosphere that naturally occurs working with them. As a cabin owner, I’m able to focus on my day job and life activities without the hassle of managing my properties because Bear Camp really takes care of everything.


~Chad Garland, Owner of Mountain Tyme & Wilderness Lodge~



I give Bear Camp Cabin Rentals the highest possible recommendation; to be honest, I was with another cabin rental company years ago and was so unhappy I decided to sell and get out of the nightly rental cabin market. Then, I met John from Bear Camp and signed with them. WOW.... What a difference!!! Owning a cabin was fun again!!!! The staff at Bear Camp are always friendly, professional, and helpful. Also, I have never done better with income production.


~Dr. Dennis Kern, Owner of Bears Valley, Big Sky, Black Bear Cove, Black Bear Crossing, & Lazy Bear Lake~



Bear Camp has managed our cabin since we purchased it 10 years ago. Since we are not local to the area, we needed a reliable management company to keep close eyes on our cabin and be there when we couldn't. They have never let us down and continue to help us keep our cabin in great shape and in working order. They have been there for us when we had furniture delivered, a new a/c installed, and to clean-up flooding on the bottom floor when we had a leak. The staff are always professional, helpful, and courteous; keeping us apprised of any issues, large or small, with our cabin. On top of all that, they ensure our cabin is rented regularly! I highly recommend Bear Camp Cabins!
