Property Details

Updated: Oct 25, 2016
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 Dollywood's nightly fireworks show! No neighbors to the left or right (or in front, or back 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 in either town.


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.

Centrally located , very convenient for trips into gatlinburg and pigeon forge. But far enough in the mountains for serenity

Second time this year we have stayed in this cabin! Already want to come back :) There is nothing that this cabin is missing, everything about it is inviting! So much to do and the view from the cabin makes you never want to leave. It is so accessible to pigeon forge and gatlinburg that when you do get out it doesn't take long to get where you need to go! So nice that Teri the owner of the cabin is always available and helpful and it is obvious the pride she takes in this home away from home. Thanks so much! We will be coming back next year :)

AMAZING!!! Exactly like the Photos

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cabin is perfect! The location is great for going either to Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. The setting in the mountain is wonderful, private, and has a great view. The inside is just so cool, comfy, and clean, and has so much to do. You have a choice of 3 decks, Pool Table, Air Hockey, Foosball, Movies & Games on the big screen. The kitchen is fully stocked with all dishes, appliances, and utensils. We just really enjoyed hanging out at the cabin, after some touring around the area. I told Teri we were trying to figure out how to pick the cabin up and take it to the woods in Michigan. Teri was very available, but we didn't need to ask for anything! We were on the way home when Teri let us know our deposit was already refunded, and thanked us for leaving it in such good shape. Highly Recommend!!

The cabin was everything we could have hoped for and more. We weren't expecting anything so nice to be quit honest. The views from the balcony were for miles and miles. Really enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets from there. Our stay there was enjoyable and pleasant. We hope to return someday. Thanks for making our stay so pleasant and answering all of our questions in a timely manner. We will recommended your property to our family and friends.
