About Matt and April @ Bear Tracts
We are a couple that believes in the work hard/play hard philosophy. We both hold down full time jobs and dedicate our time and efforts to being the best we can be. That will show in the properties that we offer. We want this to be the best "home away from home", for you as well as your friends and family.
Why Matt and April @ Bear Tracts chose Gatlinburg
We were both raised in the South, so these mountains feel like home. We enjoy the outdoors and hiking, and Gatlinburg is surrounded by beautiful landscape with a lot of outdoor activities for all levels. Couple that with great food, thrill rides, shows, and shopping, and it becomes a place you come back to time and time again. At least we did!

July 2019 Stay
We enjoyed our visit to Gatlinburg. Matt was great to deal with and was just a text or a phone call away if we needed anything. He always made us feel that whatever we needed was always a priority and would be taken care of immediately.
Living the dream
We had an amazing time at Living the dream. Matt was attentive and responded quickly when we needed something. We would differently stay here again.
Property was clean and as advertised. Communication with management was effective and easy. Whole week was above expectations!
Could have been great if it was clean 🧽
Great location and home & property owner was great but the place was not clean!!!
Sometimes its the people you do the most for that treat you the worst. There is nothing we could have possibly done short of nuclear sterilization to satisfy this guest. I still dont think that would have been enough. They complained about the floors. We sent the housekeeping crew back out and they scrubbed the floors on their hands and knees at this guest request. While they were working on the floors we also went around and remade all the beds as a courtesy. After an hour of going over the floors several times, the guest said that was good enough. The next day I also personally went out because the hottub was "gross and smelly". When I arrived the hottub was chemically balanced, the water had a slight tint to it as they do after a few days of use and had no odor except for the bromine. I emptied and refilled the hot tub anyway and sanitized the filter again as well. Please reference our many other reviews to make your own judgment call.
Living The Dream property
Overall we enjoyed our stay. Issues reported were addressed quickly. The trash dumpsters were not emptied often enough and trash was all around. The bear proof trash bins are not going to work if they are full and people put trash on the ground. Not sure who is responsible for that. The pictures made me think we wouldn’t be as close to other cabins.
Well I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. you can see other cabins in practically all of our photos and we do not hide that it is in a resort community. As for the dumpsters, those are handled by the city. Unfortunately we dont have control over how often the trash receptacles are emptied.
Living the Dream
What a beautiful cabin. Everything we needed was provided. The call ahead grocery service was a plus! The beds we're very comfortable and we lived that every room had it's own bathroom. Media room and game room we're well used as well as the hot tub. If I had one complaint it would be the over abundance of gnats. These were overwhelming...we we're in the mountains though so I guess it's expected. All in all we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend Beartracts77!!
So Glad you had a good experience Terri! We work really hard to make sure our guests are taken care of! I would love to hear back from you about the Gnats. Were they inside the cabin or buzzing around the outside on the decks and grilling area?
