Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 12, 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 LOFT OF GAMES & MORE

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.

THE PERFECT SETTING FOR PRIVACY

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.

ROMANCE IS IN THE AIR

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.

CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

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.

NEW AND IMPROVED

The cabin was extensively renovated 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.

Black Bear Bungalow 5 stars

  • 5 of 5
The vacation was everything I had dreamed of and more.We wanted to relax and get away from the stresses of life. The cabin was awesome and more then met our expectations for a peaceful and quiet vacation.We ended up just going out to dinner one night because there was so much to do for fun and relaxation at the cabin. We enjoyed the 3 decks with awesome views of the trees and moutains. We used the outdoor hot tub and we rented movies to enjoy at night on the projector screen and played pool in the evening. The cabin was a short distance from the parkway which made it convenient to getting to the park for hiking which we did everyday. Thanks to Teri and Dave for sharing her beautiful home and just a text or phone call away if we needed anything. Look forward to returning.

Awesome Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed the Black Bear Bungalow. As soon as you stepped into the house, it was like you were home. The little amenities throughout the house were awesome and let you know even the smallest of detail were paid attention to. The upstairs was awesome and where we spent most of our time. The movie projection with surround sound and lots of movies, the Gaming system, the pool table were all our favorites. The bed upstairs was nice to prop up and read a book (there were many good books there) while looking out the big windows. There are 3 nice decks all with comfortable seating, and the front 2 decks had awesome views. On the back deck, there was a swing and a hot tub. I loved going back there and sitting on the swing and just enjoying nature. It was so peaceful and quiet.

The drive up was not bad after your first trip up, which seemed to be a little intimidating but definitely worth it. There were really no bad curves, just some steep inclines, but after your first trip up, it was a breeze. You literally felt like you were in the clouds. I cannot say enough good things about the cabin. We have stayed in many cabins over the years, and this was the best as far as the cabin itself and the location. I would definitely recommend you go up the first time in the daylight. The directions the owner gives you are perfect.

As far as the owner, Teri, she was great. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will definitely stay here again.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Excellent place to both access the local area (entertainment, shopping, and outdoor adventures) and still feel secluded. I highly recommend this cabin!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I agree, it's very close to all the hot spots but so secluded when you're at the cabin. Reminds me of being in a tree house for kids of all ages! Hope you make it back soon!

Cozy, beautiful, private cabin

  • 5 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!
