Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband, Lonnie, and I vacationed in the Smokies for many years. It was always a dream of ours to own a cabin in Pigeon Forge and in 2005 we were able to make that dream come true. We have created many wonderful memories at Bear Haven with our adult children and their families and we are happy to be able to share this dream with you, too. We personally answer all inquiries for Bear Haven, and, in conjunction with our cleaning and maintenance company, we work hard to provide you with a wonderful and relaxing 'home away from home' for your next vacation.
Drop us an email or give us a call. We're always happy to hear from you!
Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge: The Pigeon Forge area offers such a wide variety of things to do. From hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with its awesome vistas, to visiting one of the many live shows, to shopping at any of the wonderful outlet stores in search of that great bargain we are always able to find something to keep us busy no matter what the season!
In the years before buying Bear Haven, we actually rented several cabins on our road. It was such a peaceful and quiet location yet so convenient to the Parkway and all the activities! When we finally decided to purchase a cabin we looked at dozens of cabins but always migrated back to this area. In the end, it was an easy decision - our hearts were here!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Relax, renew and refresh! What more can I say? The view of Mt. LeConte from our screened deck is absolutely awesome! No matter what the season the view is beautiful. In winter, there is a chance you will see the distant mountain tops covered in snow. Come spring and everything is budding out in the brightest of greens. Summertime reveals the mature deep greens of all the trees and in the fall they put on their brightest colors - rich reds, oranges, and golds!
And the best part is that all of this is just minutes from the Parkway so when you have recharged your spirits you can get back to all the activities in no time at all!
