Wears Valley house description

Little Bear Cottage is a charming, 2 story home, reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century, Appalachian homestead, centrally located on a lovely wooded lot in scenic Wears Valley. It features easy access and a paved driveway, making coming and going a pleasure, year round. It also features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a Jacuzzi tub, a large wrap around deck with covered hot tub, high speed internet, cable TV, and real wood burning fireplace. If you have children, you will undoubtedly appreciate the large, shady property, located on a quiet cul-de-sac.

Whether you choose to immerse yourself in a wide variety of activities in town, or just relax at the cabin, there just never seems to be enough time! We are just a short drive from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Townsend. We are within walking distance of local shops and restaurants, not to mention just a few miles from the Foothills Parkway and within 10 miles of the back entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Enjoy a scenic drive to historic Cades Cove, or take in the breath taking view from Clingmans Dome. Hop a ride on the trolley to cruise the Parkway, or spend the day at famous Dollywood. Add to that bicycling, river rafting, fishing, hiking, restaurants, theaters, museums, gift shops, and outlet malls. The list is endless! Contact us for more information about this amazing location in East Tennessee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Bruce and I have been coming to this area for 30+ years, starting out in a tent, then to a pop-up camper. In fact, this is where we spent our honeymoon! All of our children's memories revolve around these camping trips and vacations. Now that they are grown, with children of their own, they come here to make their own memories. What I find heart warming is that they do not consider the vacation over until they have gone to all the places that they went to as children! We never tire of making the drive from Florida, and always look forward to the peace we feel as we turn onto our hill leading to Little Bear Cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Wears Valley:
We chose to buy in this area because of the memories and the tradition of spending our vacations here. This area has enough attractions for all ages to keep busy, and at the same time, offers activities that are free. You can't put a price on a peaceful walk through the woods, or a picnic by a stream.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the benefits of staying at our property is the large yard. Many guests with children like the security of knowing the kids are not going to fall off a mountain when playing. We are also within walking distance of so many local shops, and restaurants. During the fall we are across the street from the Octoberfest activities and not far from the local farmers market.
