The Experience

breakfast area at bearskin lodge in gatlinburgThe overall Bearskin Lodge Experience is certainly one of the top reasons that couples love to spend their time with us. Our hotel was created to honor the legacy of our owner’s grandmother Hattie Ogle McGiffin. Hattie owned and ran The Bearskin Motel that once stood where the The Bearskin Parking Garage is today. 20 years ago our hotel opened its doors with the hope of recreating the hospitality that Hattie was known for in the community. We strive daily for our hotel to be a place that is filled with charm and comfort. The experience of our guests is our top priority and we pride ourselves on knowing that time after time members of our Bearskin family return to see us. When staying with us you’ll experience the comfort of your grandmother’s home, the beauty of a rustic mountain lodge and the type of romance that’s often only found in Hallmark movies!
