Special thanks to the owners for opening up your home to us, we loved it. Also special thanks to the cleaning crew, the cabin was immaculate!

Shannon Family, Memphis, TN 3/15/2020

Dancing Bearfoot is a wonderful little place to unwind and relax with friends. The drive in was a little harrowing at night but sometimes you need to drive that extra mile for the best! Enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day. Love your cabin!!! We could get used to this kind of living real quick! Thanks for sharing your home!

Baleka, Jim, Gayle & Don, North Wilkesboro NC  3/05/20

This was honestly the best cabin we've ever seen or enjoyed a stay in. The attention to detail is unsurpassed - it's very easy to tell how much the owners care about their investment. More than worth the price, and we wish we could have stayed much longer!

Chris S. - Knightdale, NC 3/02/20

This is a beautifully designed cabin and as someone  (Amy) who restores and builds furniture  the attention to every minute detail is unsurpassed.  It's very easy to see that this is a well cared for cabin. Thanks for creating this experience for your guests!  You guys are flippin' awesome!

Amy W - Raliegh NC 2/28/20

This is the best rental property that we have experienced in a long time. My wife & I travel frequently and this is FAR & AWAY the best-kept, most well-appointed rental that we have had the pleasure of staying in for quite some time.  We were in the mountains about 4 weeks prior to this trip for New Years celebration & the rental that we had from another company was subpar.  This place was well-designed, nicely decorated & just a pleasure to enjoy!  WELL DONE to both American Patriot Getaways & the owner for a quality property!!!
Jerry H,  Waynesboro TN 1/23/20

Loved the cabin, had a nice vacation!  We hope the next visitors enjoy it as much as we did!

Chris & Sheba, Aiken SC 1/02/20

Love the Smokies, Dancing Bearfoot and the wonderful people who enable us to have a wonderful visit.

Billy & Michelle, Brandon MS 11/29/19

Thank you Chuck & Cindy for letting us stay at your wonderful cabin!  We will be back!

David & Kelsee, Oswego, IL 11/20/19

This trip has been such a blessing!  Such a cozy cabin, the attention to detail, the interior design and the location is absolutely perfect to say the least. We have enjoyed every aspect of our trip from the weather, the cabin, the attractions, nature & hiking, the food and the people.  it could not be more perfect. So we say thank you!  Thanks for not growing weary of each new guest, Thanks for making it special for us. You never know what someone is going through and how something seemingly routine for you can make a lifetime impression and memory for another.

Travis & Robin, Live Oak FL 11/17/19

Thanks for sharing such a great cabin.  We loved it (and the name) and will certainly it recommend to friends. Favorite moments: Tea in the morning & hot tub at night on the back porch, the natural beauty of the fall colors, blue sky through the upstairs windows, seeing a bear and nearly dying on the roads!

Ashley & Mike, Washington DC 11/03/19

Beautiful cabin, we had a great time.  Favorite moments were the hot tub and the copper tub, both relaxing.  Seeing a huge black bear outside the door 10 feet from us while unloading the Jeep!

Darryl & Johanna, Hope Mills NC 11/01/19

This was our 4th trip to these mountains.  We plan to stay longer on our next trips.  The leaves were just turning their beautiful fall colors near the cabin but the higher elevations were beautiful. Favorite moments were the porch swing, the hot tub and just relaxing at the cabin.

Bo & Faye, Vicksburg, MS 10/22/19

Beautiful and cozy cabin- had everything we need.  Loved the hot tub and sitting on the back porch swing enjoying coffee in the morning.  thank you for providing a Keurig!

Rob, Jen, Isabelle & Willow, Westfield IN 10/15/19

This cabin was great!  Very tastefully decorated.  Home away from home. The kids (ages 6, 9 & 10) would have been happy to have hung out at the cabin whole time even though they loved all the activities we did.  The beds were  comfy, the A/C was efficient, water temperature was great, quiet, clean etc. etc. etc. We will definitely be back, thanks for a great vacation!

Ryan and Natalie, Batavia IL 8/01/19

-Jeff, Debbie, Brandon & Bryanna, Morehead KY 9/16/2018

Everybody was so sweet!  Just wish the weather was better, it rained every day.  The cabin was nice and fun.  The card and board games are a good bonus as is the dartboard upstairs.

-Jon Allison, Elizabeth & Ava, Michigan   8/03/2018

We have really enjoyed our stay!  We did see one small black bear below the back deck and a large hawk in the trees as well.  We enjoyed the board games and poker table since it rained most of our trip.  Love the extra touches like the Guest Book and the signed log.

This cabin is so cute!

-Kan & Preston, Bardstown, KY   5/08/2018

We had a very relaxing stay.  The cabin is beautiful and very comfortable.  The back deck was our favorite part.  The weather turned from nice and warm to rainy and cold but the porch remained our favorite place to relax.  This was our first time to the area and mostly getting a feel for the place.  We will definitely be back.

-Shane & Lequita, Arkansas   4/16/2018

This was our first trip to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and it was a great trip.  The main reason was family time and to to to the Sugarlands Shine Distillery and it was the most awesome time we had.  This was the first time we've stayed in a cabin and I'm not sure we'll ever stay in a hotel again.  This was great we really enjoyed our trip!

-Eric, Brenda, Dave & Dakota, North Carolina   4/08/2018

The road up here to our cabin felt like we were riding a roller coaster! My daughter even screamed when we came down one of the hills and she's 22 years old!  We had the best time here and would love to come back!

The cabin was awesome!  It was very clean when we arrived and was surprised to see the extras (games, cards, etc).  the hot tub was definitely a plus also, it felt good to sit in and relax.  Loved the swing as well, nice to sit out there in the mornings and the evenings and enjoy the beauty of nature.

I loved the cabin, you really made it feel like home here. I lived sitting on the back porch and looking at natures blessings. Enjoyed the go-carts and just having a relaxing weekend.  This cabin is beautiful and I would always want to come to it.  My grand kids loved it, especially the snow they hardly get to see back in Georgia. Thank you so much for our wonderful weekend.
