About Rosemary Pound

In 2010 while on vacation from Florida, my husband and I found a beautiful property in the East Tennessee mountains to build our vacation cabin. After retirement as a School Administrator, years of traveling and building nearing completion, we shifted gears and decided to make our cabin our permanent home. So, in 2014, we packed up our two rescue dogs and moved full time to this beautiful area. We haven't looked back since. In 2016, fearful of running out of projects (lol), we purchased an adjacent property with a long time vacation rental in need of work. After months of blood, sweat and yes, some tears we are ready to re-offer "This Ole Bear" to vacationers of these beautiful mountains.

Rosemary Pound purchased this Cabin in 2016

Why Rosemary Pound chose Tellico Plains

My husband and I are long time RVers and love to travel and explore. Taken by the beauty of this area, we searched for an RV friendly property that could serve our needs for a few months out of the year. We found the perfect property in the Cherokee National Forest a short distance up a mountain over looking a beautiful creek with a rich history and some of the most scenic falls right down the road, but..... restricted against RV's. Convinced this was the perfect location for us we built our dream vacation cabin instead. It truly was a labor of love that we never regretted.

What makes this Cabin unique

"This Ole Bear" was planned and furnished with you the vacationer in mind. Purchased and renovated in 2i016 and made available September 2017 as a full time vacation rental, a guest of This Ole Bear will have access to the entire cabin and surrounding property to enjoy. Why vacation in someones part time home when you can stay in your own mountain retreat. Whether you are looking for a remote setting for a romantic outdoor candlelight dinner overlooking a massive stone fire pit or a destination for your adventurous family with a private upstairs suite for the kids, the Bear has it all and more. Romance or kids not your thing, check out This Ole Bears' backyard with its hundreds of miles of recreation. The Tellico Plains and Coker Creek area offers hiking, backpacking, equestrian, fishing, white water rafting, mountain biking, motorcycle trails and roads, historical sites and museums as well as steam era railroad tours, antiquing and flea markets.

                                      So sweet and charming

                                      Amanda K.

                                      My husband, myself, and our 3 daughters plus lab puppy had a wonderful long weekend in paradise. The cabin was perfect. There was nothing we needed during our stay and it was made clear if there was we knew who to ask. Rosemary was so sweet and anticipated our needs just perfectly. We would love to stay again :)

                                      Wonderful Cabin and Owner.

                                      Eugene W.

                                      The cabin is a doll house, every thing we needed was there. The owners were more than nice. Wine and cheese ball were there waiting for us. The view from the cabin was breath taking. I highly recomend the place. I have already said it but it is worth saying again, the owners are great, and acomadating. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

                                      Warm and welcoming!

                                      Amy M.Where do you live?

                                      Nice, quite location. Rosemary is a great hostess and put a lot of thought into stocking the items you need. We'll be back!

                                      Cozy Mountain Cabin

                                      Jordan B.

                                      Our family truly enjoyed our stay at The Bear cabin! It felt like home as soon as we arrived. Rosemary thought of everything and the little things that we forgot to bring were all there. The kids loved the loft bedroom and playing baggo on the deck. We loved sitting around the fire together and exploring the trails around the property. It was a perfect home base from which to explore the area.

                                      Beautiful Location

                                      Beth L.

                                      The cabin is great! Location is so beautiful! Fire pit with the view of the creek is so peaceful! Owner is super nice and very welcoming! Can’t wait to visit again! Thank you Rosemary!

                                      A home away from home!

                                      Elaine P.

                                      This is the place to be if you are looking for a cabin in the woods. We spent five days exploring Coker Creek and surrounding area. Don't miss Coker Creek Falls and Buck Bald. Both are breathtaking. The cabin is extremely well appointed with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Add in that Rosemary and Larry are great people and wonderful hosts. This is the place! Book it!
