Log Cabin On The Edge Of The Mountain With Fabulous View, 2 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths

Bear Cub Cabin in Gatlinburg TN, is located in Smoky Mountain Village and is a gorgeous upscale cabin with a spectacular view of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, OberGatlinburg Ski Resort, Mt LeConte, and the night lights of Gatlinburg.

There are 3 levels in the cabin and you enter the center level. The 2 bedrooms in the lower level are spacious and feature a stone shower, a tv, an overhead fan and an exit door to the outside. The furniture is rustic Appalachian. The washer/dryer and an iron and ironing board are located near the bedrooms. The game room on the top level has a pool table, a tv, a twin bed and a full bath with a jacuzzi tub for all the guests to use.

The center level comes tastefully furnished with a leather sofa and loveseat around a stone fireplace, rustic Appalachian dining furniture, and historic photos of the dedication of GSMNPark at New Found Gap, the builders of the Lodge on Mt LeConte, the Chimney Top Mountain, black bears, and the streets of downtown Gatlinburg in years gone by. The cabin is decorated with a bear theme. The center level has the living area and fireplace, dining area, kitchen and a half bath.

The back deck comes equipped with a gas barbeque grill, a table and benches, 2 rockers, and a hot tub. The covered porch on the front of the cabin features a bench swing for you to enjoy out of the elements.

Bear proof garbage cans are located beside the cabin for our guests use and convenience. There are 2 parking spaces assigned for our guests.

The owners of Bear Cub Cabin are members of the Chalet Village Resort which gives our guests the privilege to use the Club swimming pool and tennis courts during the warm months.

About the Owner

My husband and I are from Knoxville and we grew up loving this area and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We both are graduates from the University of Tennessee. We spent our childhoods vacationing in Gatlinburg and the GSMNPark, and we took our children there for vacations in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and camping in Cades Cove and Elkmont. Our decision to purchase a cabin home in the Smoky's was an easy one! We liked the Smoky Mountain Village location because the views are unbeatable and the location is close to everything. Our family still uses the cabin for special occasions. I am an avid hiker and have hiked all the trails in the GSMNPark which totals over 840 miles. My husband is an avid runner and he frequents the Gatlinburg Trail outside of Gatlinburg which runs beside a beautiful creek. Our children use the cabin because there is so much to do and so many close attractions. We have many fond family memories from Bear Cub, it is a great home get-away.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this cabin, we made a last minute trip the day of and Sandy was very good about getting back to us quickly to book our stay! The view from the back porch was gorgeous! It was very convenient to downtown Gatlinburg and easy to find. We will definitely be coming back to stay in this cabin again and I would recommend it for anyone else!

Had a wonderful time in this beautiful cabin. I only regret not being there more we spent most our time on the parkway with the kids, but we loved breakfast and coffee on the back porch with those beautiful views. Only problem was the hot tub, didnt get hot and the Jets seemed to lack power, but we were there so little it didn't really matter, tho we tried to use it after we hiked to rainbow falls n some other long trails we were sore lol..all in all beautiful and amazing cabin and kids already want to go back

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our vacation in Gatlinburg. This cabin was just great! It had a gorgeous view of the mountains and over looked Obergatlinburg ski resort. We relaxed in the hot tub and watched as people would try their luck of skiing down the slopes. It was convenient to downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin was beautiful, very nicely decorated. We were already planning when we could return again, before we left. I would definitely recommend staying at this cabin, you won't be sorry. I know we will be staying here again soon!

From the Owner

Since we are from Knoxville and grew up visiting the Smokies and Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, we knew we wanted a second home in the Smokies. Our property borders the National Park and it is almost on the top of a mountain...the road dead-ends a half mile from our entrance! The views are what sold us though. From our back deck we have a 180 degree vista with Mt LeConte, elevation 6593, right in the middle! We can watch skiers traverse the slopes of OberGatlinburg and the Sky Tram climb up the mountain. Bears frequent the area as well as wild turkey and deer. On the other side of Smoky Mountain Village, we can see the lights from Pigeon Forge. On clear days you can see for miles!
