Property description

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Less than 4 miles from Light #8 in Pigeon Forge (close to Dollywood, the new LeConte Event Center and The Island).

VIEW! VIEW! VIEW! Check out our spectacular panoramic view including Mt. LeConte - third highest peak in the Smokies!

PET FRIENDLY so you won't have to leave the furry member of your family at home!

Whether you are looking to get away from it all or want the excitement of Dollywood, Splash Country and all that the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg areas have to offer, Bear Haven is where you'll want to stay. It offers the peace and tranquility of the mountains and the convenience of being just minutes away from the Pigeon Forge Parkway.

Kick back and relax on our large screened deck. It’s well furnished with rocking chairs and a picnic table and the panoramic view of the Smokies can’t be beat. From English Mountain to Mt. LeConte (third highest peak in the Smokies) to Ober Gatlinburg, the view is absolutely awesome. Or soak your cares away in our hot tub on the separate but connected second deck. And, don't forget the swimming pool access in the summer season.

Meal time will be a pleasure. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare anything from a light snack to a full meal. If grilling is more to your liking, the gas grill is ready and waiting just outside the screened deck.

When you are ready to head out for the day, it is an easy four mile drive back to the parkway and the many activities it has to offer – shopping, live shows, dinner shows, restaurants, go-karts, mini-golf - it's all close by. For the golf enthusiast, the Gatlinburg Golf Course is only three miles from our cabin. And let’s not forget - the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only 15-20 minutes away!

Bear Haven is great for families but also well suited for couples. Some of the main features are:

*Panoramic view of the Smokies from an elevation of 1595 feet
*Great location in the Dollywood area - only four miles from Dollywood Information Center
*Level parking for multiple cars

Owner info

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! The Hobsons Northport, Alabama

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!
