Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: Brian and Angie Davis live in Bloomington, IL and have owned the Bear's Den since 2002. Just like many of our guests, we love to visit the Smoky Mountains and all of the attractions in and arround the Gatlinburg, TN area. We visit the Bear's Den at least three times a year to make SURE that everything is up to our standards. We know how important it is to have everything clean, working, and looking just like you expected! I'm an avid photographer, so Angie and I love to spend time sightseeing and hiking new trails . . .always with a camera close at hand.

Why Forest Springs (Gatlinburg, TN, USA):
The Bear's Den, a true log cabin, has the absolute best location for visiting the Smoky Mountain area sights and attractions. Very few cabins or chalets have this perfect blend of setting and convenience. You will feel as if you are miles from anywhere, but you're only one mile off the main Parkway linking Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This true log cabin offers all the luxuries of vacation living while keeping that down home Smoky Mountain feel. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and wooded view from your front porch rockers or while relaxing in the hot tub. Inside, the Great Room features a cathedral ceiling and a gas-log fireplace surrounded by windows so you can enjoy a view of the great outdoors. The stacked stone fireplace and comfortable furnishings make for cozy living. Distinctive touches like the 'lodge' fabrics of the sleeper sofa and recliner, oak tables and chairs, and beautifully framed prints in the great room set this well appointed cabin apart. The Bear's Den's all wood interior will give you that true log cabin feel. The kitchen in this beautiful log home is fully equipped, including a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and convenient stacked washer and dryer.
