vacation rental description

Big Bear Lodge and Resort is minutes from the Parkway but built on a quiet peaceful bluff overlooking Pigeon Forge. Our 1,500 square foot duplex cabin is a great Smoky Mountain getaway not far from a variety of attractions including: the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Dollywood Theme Park, and the new Titanic exhibit. Also choose activities from white water rafting to a Zipline adventure. Step out nearby to a large selection of restaurants, outlet shopping malls including “5 Oaks”; a huge mall with 100’s of stores only minutes from the cabin. We are also just a half mile from the new Wear Farm City Park. At the park with be baseball/softball fields, playground and walkway. Many softball tournaments are schedule for the park. You can walk from the cabin to the park if you desire.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find three levels that are more like home than anyplace you’ve ever stayed: the main level, the second floor and the lower level walkout apartment or Studio Suite. On each level, we’ve added decorating touches throughout that you rarely find in any other vacation property. As an example, we’ve included classic fine art prints and local artist renditions of this beautiful location. We’ve also added lots of pillows, stuffed bears, and cozy throws. This cabin also features hardwood floors and leather furniture. Parking is available on both the main and lower levels of the cabin.

On the main level, relax near the huge stone fireplace with its nearby large flat screen TV housed in an armoire. For larger groups, the leather couch makes into a queen size bed. In the full kitchen, you’ll find everything you need to prepare a delicious home cooked meal, or you may opt to grill something on the large lower-level Studio Suite deck. Either way, you’ll be able to recharge your energies and enjoy being in a unique beautiful area of East Tennessee.

Just off the kitchen, you can enjoy a four person hot tub set in a large screened in porch. Enjoy the night air wafting through the screens while relaxing in the hot soothing water. A large half bath, along with a washer and dryer, is also located on this level.

On the second level, at the top of the stairs you will find a loft sitting area just outside the private master bedroom suite. This vaulted space overlooks the main floor. It includes a love seat, which may be converted into a twin bed. You’ll also find a large computer desk, books, reference materials, excellent lighting and a CD player.

Pass through the loft and you’ll be amazed at the size of the master bedroom suite with full bathroom and balcony. Each day you can view the beautiful Smoky Mountains from this suite. This balcony is perfect location for your morning coffee. The king size bed has multiple pillows, a coverlet and many throws should you need them. Relax with your own media choices by taking advantage of your own TV/DVD in this suite. Large chests of drawers are available for all your belongings.

The lower level Studio Suite is a separate apartment that is ideal when a larger group of travelers chooses Bears Retreat. This living space is perfect for another couple or children and comes equipped with a kitchenette that includes a microwave, coffee maker, sink and mini refrigerator. A recently added foosball table means fun for all! This level is accessed by a convenient stairway to the main living area and, if desired, a private outdoor entrance. This Studio Suite also opens to a large deck with gas grill and hi-top seating for four. You and your family or friends will love the extra space and tasteful décor of this Studio Suite that includes pictures and paintings of Smoky Mountain areas such as Cades Cove.

In this second living area, you’ll find another large stone gas fireplace. You can relax with a flat screen TV above the mantel. The burgundy leather couch opens into a queen size bed. Amenities include a full-size bathroom with shower and WHIRLPOOL TUB! The private bedroom in this suite includes a TV and CD player.

traveler reviews for this pigeon forge cabin rental

Beautiful cabin!

Review submitted: January 28, 2014   Date of arrival: January 25, 2014

We were very impressed with the cabin. It was so clean, beautiful and so very roomy. I loved the hottub on the back screened in deck. My daughter had her very own space in the studio apartment on the lower deck. We also enjoyed using the indoor pool. This is a place that we will definitely be wanting to stay at again! I appreciate how kind Bob was in getting our reservation squared away so quickly. This was the best cabin we have ever rented!

Owners response: Thanks for your kind words. I was pleased we were able to arrange your reservation quickly so you and your family could plan a last minute weekend getaway.

I knew your daughter would love the lower level studio apartment!

Excellent cabin in a great location

Review submitted: August 30, 2014   Date of arrival: August 24, 2014

7 of us, 6 adults and 1 child, stayed at this cabin for 4 mights. The cabin is in great condition and is spacious. The owners are nice. There's a good view of the Smokies from the top floor. Grocery store, gas station etc. are within walking distance. Dollywood and Great Smoky Mountain National Park are a few minutes away by car. The hot tub is a great way to relax after a long day of hiking. Highly recommended!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, sight seeing

Owners response: Thanks for your review. I think you hit on what I hear most often from guests--the cabin is spacious and clean, close to shopping, the Parkway, Dollywood and the National Park! Yes that Hot tub is nice after a long day hiking. Guests also like the internet service in the cabin if they need to stay connected!

Beautiful cabin, great location

Review submitted: August 3, 2014   Date of arrival: July 19, 2014

Our family of 7 really enjoyed staying in this beautiful cabin. My husband and I used the lower apartment and let the adult children and teenagers use the upstairs. They loved both the indoor and outdoor pools! It is also very convenient to all the activities and a grocery store. This made getting around very convenient. I would have given 5 stars but we didn't have enough sheets and towels when we arrived and when I called to get more I still did not receive complete sheet sets. I don't like to complain and this was a minor inconvenience. We made do and loved our time at this cabin. We hope to rent this cabin again in the future. I will add the communication with the owner is wonderful and he is very kind and friendly. A great person to work with.

Recommended for: families with teenagers

Owners response: I'm pleased you loved the cabin, the amenities of the resort and the convenient location. Sorry about the sheets, I have worked with this cleaning company for three years and have never had a problem with the supply of sheets.. I have reminded the cleaning company of the importance of ensuring that all supplies were in the cabin.
