Bear Cave Haus

Bear Cave Haus is a cozy two-bedroom, two-bathroom log cottage conveniently situated between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge’s attractions. The cabin’s large wraparound balcony provides the perfect spot from which to enjoy your lovely forested environment. From the deck’s private hot tub or relaxing porch swing, you can admire the property’s large oak trees and listen to the singing of the wrens and larks. The mountain breeze rustles the trees while you read on a deck chair. The deck’s picnic table allows outside dining and the charcoal grills allow outside cooking. Doesn’t it sound perfect? Better yet, you can bring your furry friend along to bask in the relaxation too!

Bear Cave House offers plenty of space and incredibly scenic views that will leave your jaw dropped. A double-height window wall delivers sunlight and lush views into the great outdoor space. Three comfy sofas let everyone enjoy the big game on the enormous flat-panel big screen TV with cable and DVD player or warm up by the handmade stone fireplace. And a full-size pool table makes it hard to be bored here!

Bear Cave Haus’s dining room and kitchen may make eating in more fun than eating out. The six-person dining table may accommodate an after-dinner Monopoly or Scrabble tournament. The large, airy kitchen offers all the equipment, cookware, gadgets, and tableware you need for Thanksgiving dinner or simple morning smoothies.

The paneled walls, vaulted ceiling, and rustic furniture make the main floor bedroom warm and roomy. After watching a movie on the flat-screen TV or reading a good book on the king-size bed, turn off the lights and wake up to sunshine and birdsong.

This cabin’s log-frame king-size bed, flat-panel TV, and privacy make this room perfect, but add on the suite’s private jetted tub, and your every want is provided for! After skiing or trekking, a lengthy warm bath will relax your muscles.

Two living room couch beds can accommodate four more guests on the main level, so a total of 8 people can stay – plus your pets, of course!

At Bear Cave Haus, you’ll enjoy seeing the area’s attractions which are just a short drive away. Downtown Gatlinburg has an aquarium, the Guinness World Records Museum, mini golf, a two-floor arcade, and more. Great Smoky Mountains National Park is nearby. Walk, bike, horseback, or drive to see its waterfalls, animals, and wildflowers. Also, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, Dollywood, the Titanic Museum, and the Arts and Crafts Loop.

A Walk in the Clouds

A Walk in the Clouds is a romantic lodge overlooking the Great Smoky Mountain forests. A Walk in the Clouds offers a pool table, foosball, air hockey, and a bedroom with a jacuzzi tub, perfect for romance. And they accept pets, too!

You’ll see the A-frame cabin’s meticulous care and details as you enter. The loft’s handmade spiral stair, planked-wood floor, walls, and vaulted ceiling are impressive, and the stone-surround fireplace’s golden glow will warm the open-plan living rooms in winter. The bedroom with private bathroom makes A Walk in the Clouds honeymoon-worthy. The jetted tub and four-poster log-frame queen-size bed are exquisite. After skiing, trekking, or golfing, soak your weary muscles and your worries away. Watch a movie on the 42-inch flat-panel TV – it includes HBO and a DVD player, so you can watch your favourite shows. The comfy sofa also becomes a two-person bed.

The polished log dining table seats four, but as the deck has a picnic table, you might prefer to dine outside in the great outdoors! Every dinner will be exceptional with the mountain air rustling the trees and falcons and eagles flying above the mountaintops.

You’ll love the hot tub on the screened-in porch overlooking the mountains. Soak and enjoy truly beautiful views right from your own cabin!

The cabin may feel remote from the area’s attractions and stores due to its serene location, but a Walk in the Clouds is less than five minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, which has restaurants, an aquarium, mini golf, and other activities. Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with hiking trails, historic cabins, waterfalls, and black bears and elk, is just a short 10 minutes away.

Your beloved pets will love this cabin getaway too, with so much beautiful nature to explore right outside your door!
