Property Details

Updated: Mar 27, 2015
Very private 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom (sleeps 5) with huge gameroom in loft

Black Bear Bungalow offers an incredibly charming and private Smoky Mountain experience. This 2-story real log cabin has been extensively renovated and lets you relax in style with incredible mountain views from both front decks.


A full size pool table, air hockey, foosball and more await you. Even a 72 inch projection TV and a play area for young children (they will love the toys and the kitchen for playtime). There is also a Game Cube with 20 or so video games.


Black Bear Bungalow is located on a quiet street amidst tall trees. The view from both front decks is stunning and you can see the lights of Pigeon Forge at night. During the summer, watch Dollywoods nightly fireworks show! No neighbors to the left or right (or in front of you, either), you will enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains every day.


From the moment you arrive, you'll know that this is your special place. There is a fire pit for relaxing evenings outside under the stars; a heart-shaped Jacuzzi with waterfall; two fireplaces--one in the living area and the other at the foot of your king bed. On the back covered deck is a large hot tub, swing and more seating. You will love the sounds of nature and the privacy of having it all to yourselves.


Black Bear Bungalow is only a couple of miles from the parkway, or as the locals like to call it, The Spur. It is centrally located in between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. In a few minutes, you can be to either town.


The cabin was extensively renovated in late 2013 and is now ready for guests! So many things are new we can't list them all here, but look at the photos and you can see a lot of attention to detail. New hard anodized cookware, new bedding and linens, new stairs, driveway and fire pit, security system and more.

Black Bear Bungalow is not just a couples retreat--it is perfect for families, too. The game room has so many things to do, your kids will be busy for hours up in the loft. Whether it is just to celebrate an anniversary...spend a long weekend with old friends...or bring the kids to their best vacation ever, Black Bear Bungalow is the perfect choice.

About the Owner

For many years, our family has been enjoying the Smoky Mountains. Just like most people do, we fell in love instantly! Our children who are now ages 11 and 9, consider this our “home away from home,”not just a place to go for vacation. Over the years we have stayed at quite a few different cabins but for the last few, we have kept coming back to Black Bear Bungalow, previously known as Bear Paw. Earlier in 2013, my husband was online trying to book our next trip and discovered the Bear Paw was for sale. We were so thrilled to be able to purchase it and take on this new endeavor. My husband spent a good part of the summer just providing the cabin some TLC and a few great upgrades such as a fire pit and a big screen projector! We truly hope that all who visit will love it here as much as we do. Make yourselves at home, relax, enjoy and come back soon.

Cozy, beautiful, private cabin

  • of 5
My husband and I stayed at Black Bear Bungalow and it exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, cozy and had spectacular views. It was very private, nestled up in the mountains before you get to Gatlinburg . We enjoyed the loft with the games and screen projector for our entertainment. So this cabin is also great for kids, not just only couples. It had everything we needed. Kitchen was well stocked with appliances. I really can't complain about anything. We will be sure to return to this cabin next time we visit!

We absolutely loved this cabin high up on the mountain. We used it for our Spring Break get-a-way with 15 y.o. twins and they LOVED the game room, the movie screen, and pool table! My husband and I enjoyed the relaxing bed, comforts of home and most of all, the hot tub. Thank you Teri for such a welcoming vacation. There's also so much to do located 20 minutes away; such as water rafting, go karting, lots of fantastic shows. We especially liked the Comedy Barn.

Great cabin, loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin with another couple and enjoyed it very much. It was comfortable, clean,and very cute. We loved the three porches, all with furniture so we could sit out with coffee and enjoy the view from which everone we wanted. One day we did have rain, so it was nice to be able to use the hot tub that was on the back porch, as we had a roof overhead too. We did not use the tub in our room, preferring the hot tub with it's serene woods and hill view. The weather was not great during some of our stay, so we ate in most nights, and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking. implements. The men enjoyed being able to go upstairs and play pool and foozball. My husband and I used the master bedroom and the bed was very comfortable. The other couple had a great view from their bed in the loft area. There was a TV in the living area and master bedroom, which was great. It would have been nice to have a TV in the loft as opposed to the projection one, as it only played DVD s, but great for kids. All in all we would return to the cabin again, it was very nice. I would say it would be great if there could be a way to have more places for hanging things. The cabin has no closets. As we went during snowy and then warm weather, all in one week we had more heavy coats and things to hang up, so we had to get a bit creative to keep things neat. There is a rack behind the door in the master bedroom, and a short pole hanger upstairs, but some more hooks, or racks would have helped. Even a coat rack would be nice. One last thing, and having rented many places, this is the most important to me, the owner was just great to communicate with. We had some questions while there, and we found the owner, Terri to be wonderful. She took our calls, or promptly got back to our email. From my experience this is not always the case. It was very apparent that she wanted us to enjoy our stay on her property, and we did.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the detailed review! I do know that storage is certainly a consideration in a smaller cabin. I will reexamine the space and try to creatively find more. As we have just purchased our second cabin, one of the first things I bought was a coat rack for the front door!! I'm so glad that you and your friends were able to enjoy your stay and I do appreciate your review.

What an experience!

The cabin is lovely. We especially enjoyed relaxing in the heart-shaped tub. We had the misfortune of going during the worst winter storm in over 100 years! When we lost power and couldn't drive down the icy mountain, the owners were more than helpful in assisting us. We did plan on hiking, but didn't think we'd have our luggage with us! We would have loved to have been able to enjoy the cabin more.

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness! We will never forget this stay! Thank you again for your flexibility and trust in getting you down the mountain. (sorry about the hiking!) I'm just so glad you both are safe and sound. Please come back again, summer is lovely! I'm considering investing in a snowmobile!.....
