Should I book Direct, or through Airbnb or VRBO2023-03-20T18:02:28+00:00

All of the booking platforms have their own benefits and disadvantages. We are premier status and super hosts with both platforms because we work hard to make your stay as great of a vacation as we can.

By booking direct, you save money on the fees that Airbnb and VRBO charge and we provide the same great service regardless of how you book. We are excited to host you!

What is the cancellation policy?2023-01-08T16:56:05+00:00

To receive a full refund, guests must cancel at least 30 days before check-in. They can also get a full refund within 48 hours of booking if the cancellation occurs at least 14 days before check-in. If a guest cancels between 7 and 30 days before check-in, they receive 50% refund off of the total value. There are no refunds for cancellations less than 7 days ahead of arrival.

Sweet Home Bearolina is only 6 miles to the back entrance of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park! It is the most visited National Park in the country with over 12 Million visitors per year!

While driving through the park, we recommend the Gypsy Guide app ( ). It is like having a tour guide in your car as you drive! It costs $13, but is well worth it. In addition to pointing out landmarks and overlooks, it includes stories about the pioneers and founders of the park. There are also stories about the wildlife and Cherokee Nation all while you explore the park at your own pace on your own schedule.

If hiking is more your style, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park has some excellent hikes for all abilities. We recommend the app “AllTrails” for great reviews, and up to date details of hikes.

If you are interested in stopping by the ranger station, be sure to ask for the Junior Ranger Badges for the kids. The park headquarters is located at 107 Park Headquarters Rd, Gatlinburg, TN 37738
