'Lil Apple Bear Cottage--EXCEPTIONAL LODGING & EXCEPTIONAL RATES!
'Lil Apple Bear Cottage is a quaint little cottage not a camper or a mobile home, and is centrally located in Wears Valley making it easily accessible to Cades Cove to view wildlife, 8.8 miles from the house to Pigeon Forge Parkway (441) for Dollywood, Splash Country, dinner shows, etc., 1.5 miles to Wears Valley convenient stores, antique shops, souvenir shops, candy making shops, bank, etc. Or, if you are honeymooning, you may prefer just to kick your shoes off, throw a steak on the charcoal grill, and dine under the stars on the patio overlooking the majestic mountains before retreating to the jetted whirlpool tub built for two!
Lil'Apple Bear Cottage features a spacious king-size bedroom with the lodge-look metal bed. For a touch of romance, this room includes the jetted whirlpool tub and an electric black marble fireplace with flickering flames useable with or without the heat. For your recreation, it also includes a 19 inch flat screen TV with DVD/VCR.
If bringing along an extra person, the living room includes a plush sofa with fresh linens provided. This room is also equipped with an electric black marble fireplace with flickering flames useable with or without the heat.
The kitchenette is fully equipped with dishes, pots, pans, silverware, and appliances. The enclosed front balcony is easily accessible and provides an awesome view of the morning dawn on the mountain drapery as you enjoy that first morning cup of coffee in one of the four chairs already there for you.
And, Oh, by the way, if you haven't noticed, we kept you totally in mind while designing 'Lil Apple Bear Cottage! We just want to spoil you a little bit while you are in the Smokies! Call Karen today to make your reservation. Damage/reservation deposit required.
I'm Karen & worked as a LA teacher before coming on board as an educational diagnostician (assessing children for special needs). I resigned my LA position June 2012, and as of August 2012, I am now teaching a special needs class in nearby MS. My husband, Donald, is a retired security officer from a LA state inmate facility. He and I have owned rental property for the past 25 years and we renovate our own properties. We renovated a house in MS a couple blocks from the Gulf which Katrina claimed in 2005. We looked on the bright side and bought a house in Pigeon Forge 2006: Bear Creek Lodge. We are building back on our lot in Bay St. Louis, MS, so remember us if you are planning a trip to the mountains or to the beach. We are blessed to live on LA/MS line where we can go back & forth for important things: LA: grandchildren and church; MS: beach and school children. The most important things in our lives are God, our children, grandchildren, family and friends.
Karen purchased this cottage in 2007
I feel the presence of God daily, but when I take a scenic ride through Smokey Mt. National Park or Cades Cove, I think of how great my God must be that He spoke this existence into place. I've vacationed here for many years and owning a piece of property here was a far-away dream, but God made it a reality in 2006 when we purchased Bear Creek Lodge in Pigeon Forge. God blessed us with guests like you to rent it; however, being an educator, it was always rented during summer and holidays when I could visit. A year later, in 2007, while looking for a piece of property to park our camper, we stumbled upon this awesome place in Wears Valley. After renovations, we not only had a piece of the mountain to park our camper on, but two more additional nightly rentals. He gave us more than one piece of the mountain. We invite you, our family and friends, to visit and enjoy a piece of the treasure with us.
Had a wonderful time. The cabin is very comfortable and homey. Thanks for the opportunity to visit here. Thanks!
We loved the location of this cottage. It was perfect for our motorcycle riding in the park. It also is very close the other way to Pigeon Forge and all the action. The cottage itself is cute. It has everything you need. There is a small fridge and a 2 burner hot plate, charcoal grill, etc. if you choose to stay in and cook. The bed is comfortable. If I had to suggest something, it would be to either find a lower headboard or higher mattress since we lost our pillows a lot behind the bed. There were quite a lot of cobwebs but that's to be expected if not rented back to back. Other than that the cottage was very clean. We are hoping to book again for our yearly "Mommy-Daddy" motorcycle trip.
We had a wonderful time staying in Lil Apple Bear Cottage. It was roomy enough to accommodate my family using the pull out sofa bed for our girls. The location and the views are wonderful. Karen is super friendly and very helpful. The cottage was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We look forward to returning!
Love the Little Cottage in Cades Cove! Cozy, and a great get-a-way - away from the busy part of life. Very quiet and a great place to just relax! Will be staying here again. Karen is always great to work with. Those who have not stayed here, should try it if you want to have peace and quiet!
Loved it! Smack in the middle of Townsend/Cades Cove and Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. Far enough from the crowds, but close to everything! Nice view, better than expected! Has carport, 2 burner "stove" every cooking and eating utensil possible, nice washer and dryer in the shed. Also, a pleasant surprise, a freezer in the shed for bags of ice to pack coolers for day trips! Huge jetted tub, kids loved it....but Honeymooners would really enjoy. Easy to find, easy to get to. All paved roads. Nice porch to watch the local bunny rabbits on the lawn. Charcoal grill on back porch! Everything perfectly maintained. Rate is a bargain for the comforts of home.
Our stay was enjoyable. The cabin had everything we needed, except a stove. The only things I would improve on would be cleaning up the outdoor seating and porches before guests arrive, replacing the toilet seat, and cleaning or painting the walls in the bathroom and jacuzzi tub area. Also possibly replacing the water heater woth a bigger one; there's not enough hot water to take a full jacuzzi bath.
We enjoyed our stay at Lil Apple Bear Cottage. We had to call Ms. Karen about a small problem and she responsed very quickly. The cottage was clean and in a very nice area.A very short distance to the Dollar General at home we call it the "DG" or "Little Yellow Boutique". So glad we found this home away from home. Thanks
