About the Owner

Welcome to our home away from home, Big Bear Lodge!

We are farmers from northeast Indiana who found our favorite retreat in the mountains of Tennessee more than 25 years ago. Since then, we have been vacationing here each year with our children and later, our grandchildren too. After years of renting, we decided to find a cabin of our own, to be able to add our own personal touches, and make it 'ours' when we gather for holidays.

Each room was decorated and named by different members of our family. Our master bedroom is the Suite Retreat. Each of our three children decorated their rooms - The Bear Cave, Moose Den and Majestic Hideaway. The entire family decorated the John Deere room, a nod to our livelihood, and the M&M room is for our grandchildren.

We hope that you enjoy the cabin as much as we do!

Craig, Beth and Family

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to tell you and your folks that we had a wonderful time last week. The cabin is just great and so well outfitted! It worked for my family beautifully--the 3 couples all had their own space, my granddaughters enjoyed the bunk room, my bachelor son did well in the John Deere room, and the family voted me into the upstairs suite--way too big for me but, heck, a little luxury now and again is OK!

We all took a night to make dinner with one reserved to eat all the leftovers. I decided I'd take everyone out on our last night to avoid my cooking assignment and we had a great time at the Crystelle Creek Restaurant keeping the singer busy with our requests. I lost track of how many times my younger granddaughter added to the singer's tip jar! My one son elected to do Pizza on his night and we had been kidding him about him having to go out and finding a takeout miles and miles away! And lo and behold you clued him into a resource for DELIVERY! . We could not believe a driver would head up into those hills! We're lucky at home if a driver will go more than a mile on the straight!

This trip had an element of deja vu for me. More years ago than I care to admit, my husband and I took our 3 oldest kids to the Smokey Mountains areas of NC and TN and I always thought it would be great to return--and we never did. Sooooooo, when I decided to take the whole family on a week's vacation (we've never had this much time all together since my oldest got married 20 years ago!) it seemed like an option--if we could get everyone with a week available at the same time. Well, it worked out just great and we saw and did so much--Dollywood and Rafting and Zip lining and Forbidden Cavern. We rented a boat for a day on Douglas Lake. We hiked and explored and checked out many of the arts and crafts locations, found some great barbecue. We saw wildlife and enjoyed playing games and just sitting on the rockers watching a downpour or two and the sun breaking through the "smoke" in the mornings. We found Pigeon Forge a bit too commercialized to our liking, but Gatlinburg was just about right! Now there's talk of having to do something like this again...

Oh, and lest I forget, the speed with which the A/C problem was corrected was remarkable!

Thanks for helping us have a memorable experience!

Fun Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was clean and beautiful, inside and out! It easily accommodated our group of 17 (11 adults and 6 children ranging in age from 2 to 13 yrs). The setting in the mountains was gorgeous and the cabin was an easy 15-20-min drive to sites and activities in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Smokey Mountain National Park. Had a minor problem with one of the TVs in the upstairs family room (turned out satellite receiver was bad) and some miscommunication about the presence of a sleeper sofa (sleeper sofa no longer in cabin), but all told, a great experience! Management staff were very cordial and easy to work with. If our family reunion returns to this area in the future, we definitely would consider this cabin again.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
5 couples enjoyed a long weekend together. Cabin was comfortable and spacious and lived up to its billing. Setting was beautiful. All ten of us enjoyed being able to sit around the kitchen table together. Lighting in kitchen was inadequate as well as kitchen utensils lacking a bit. Otherwise, it was a great place to stay and we would return again.

Owner's Response: We were so happy to have you stay with us! Your group was wonderful and we hope to have you stay at the Big Bear Lodge again in the future :). Thank you for mentioning the lack of utensils, we will look into that. It seems that at least once a year utensils start to lack and need a restocking. Thanks again!

Beautiful Cabin!!!

  • 4 of 5
My group and I arrived at the cabin and were very happy and excited to see that the cabin definitely lived up to our expectations. The cabin was nicely decorated for the holidays with the christmas trees still up. We all enjoyed our time and got to relax alot and enjoy ourselves during our stay. We had one issue during our stay which was resolved in a timely manner and didn't disrupt the flow of our trip at all. The only thing I might warn about is if you have a large group and plan on cooking alot you might have to make multiple trips to the market (depending on your shopping habits and length of stay) because there's only one fridge. We all still very much enjoyed our stay and hopefully plan on coming back next year. We all agreed that we would definitely recommend the cabin for anyone considering a stay in the area with a large party, and the listing was very accurate.

Great place to stay for a long weekend!

There was plenty of room for our 4 families that included 8 children ages 9 and under. We could all congregate on the decks or living areas to enjoy each others' company, yet there was plenty of rooms where we could separate and enjoy some quiet time.

First Time Multifamily House Trip

  • 5 of 5
Our group had 3 families with 6 adults, 5 teenage boys and one 11 yr old girl. W were pleasantly surprised to find the house to be much better in person than the pictures showed! It has a lovely cabin feel while being comfortable for all 12 of us. All six bedrooms were roomy and comfortable and the kitchen was perfect for our needs - we cooked in every breakfast, some lunches and 3 2 dinners during our stay. Kids had plenty of room to run around outside and when inside, the second family room with tv and pool table were perfect. The location was perfect for us since we were hitting all of the outdoor activities (rafing, ziplining caving, etc) as well as time in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It is approx 15inutes from both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge giving you a mountain feeling without being too far from civilization. We would definitely stay there again.

We just vacationed at this cabin last week. We loved it! There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room. We had no complaints at all. It is exactly as described and was close to everything! If you like to shop this is the place. It is right in the art and crafts tour. Very nice. We went to the smoky mountains and toured through their. It is beautiful! Would love to go back in the future. Don't hesitate...this cabin is great!!
