Looking for the perfect Smoky Mountain cabin for your next family getaway? You’ve just found it! Located in the Covered Bridge Resort, 3 Bears II is close to local attractions but far enough from the crowds and traffic that you can savor peace and quiet in the evenings after a day on the go. It also has plenty of amenities to keep everyone entertained when you’re not at an amusement park, on a hiking trail, or hitting the links or the slopes.
The spacious great room makes up most of the 2-story cabin’s main floor. With its wood-planked walls and floor, beamed cathedral ceiling, and well-cushioned seating, the living area invites the whole family to settle back and make themselves at home. It’s particularly delightful in winter, when everyone can gather in the glow of the fireplace to watch TV, surf the web via the free WiFi, or play a game on the Xbox.
Also in the great room is the dining area. The round table can seat 6 on handsome ladder-back chairs, and another 2 people can sidle up to the adjacent breakfast bar. An alternative is to eat outdoors. The huge wraparound deck includes a picnic table with benches, and a ceiling fan ensures that you’ll keep cool even during the heat of summer.
After your meal, you can continue to revel in the fresh mountain air and the view of Bluff Mountain beyond the trees. The deck’s numerous rocking chairs provide a comfy perch for listening to warblers in the morning and whip-poor-wills at night. Or for a truly luxurious experience, laze in the deck’s hot tub. The massaging jets of water will feel so restorative after a day of horseback riding or whitewater rafting.
Back indoors, you can head upstairs to the loft’s sitting area, which includes foosball and a roomy sofa. The large windows provide a bird’s-eye view of the lush trees surrounding 3 Bears II. If everyone else is downstairs watching TV, this room is a peaceful spot to lose yourself in a good book—or a good nap.
The master suite is located in the loft as well. Once you step inside, you might never want to leave. From the 4-poster king-size bed and the leather armchair to the TV and the Jacuzzi, every aspect of this room was designed with pampering and relaxation in mind. Even its private bathroom, which includes dual sinks and plenty of storage, is luxurious.
The other 2 bedrooms are on the main floor. Each has its own queen-size bed and TV. Like the rest of 3 Bears II, they’re furnished in rustic yet elegant fashion, with lustrous wood-planked walls and beamed ceilings. Should you have additional guests, one of the sofas opens into yet another queen-size bed, enabling the cabin to sleep 8 people in all. The 2nd full bathroom is located on the main floor as well.
In summer you’ll have free access to Covered Bridge Resort’s outdoor heated swimming pool and poolside deck. And year-round there’s plenty more to explore. Less than 2 miles away is Waldens Creek Stables, where you can ride horses and fish for bass, catfish, and carp in a large stocked pond. In 10 minutes you can drive to Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster, the Coaster at Goats on the Roof, or Wears Valley Zipline Adventures. In less than 20 minutes you can get to Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to the Titanic Museum, dinner theaters, go-kart tracks, mini golf, the WonderWorks educational museum, amusement parks, and more. Just a bit farther are Dollywood and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
There truly is something for everyone to enjoy when you stay at 3 Bears II. See for yourself; book your stay today—before someone else beats you to it!
