About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeper sofa, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Location, Location, Location!! Near downtown Gatlinburg!

Secluded, cozy, two bedroom/two bathroom log cabin, sleeper sofa, jetted indoor tub and cathedral ceiling! Views of the woods all around! Other cabins are nearby, but you won't notice!

From hiking trails to the Glades Arts and Crafts Community to downtown Gatlinburg to the ONLY grocery store in Gatlinburg to Roaring Fork Motor Trail to Dollywood to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park--this cabin is in the PERFECT location.

Don't delay booking your vacation...the 2017 calendar will fill quickly! Sorry...ABSOLUTELY NO last minute reservations and rates are NOT negotiable! (Note: A. Payment must be received two weeks before your arrival date because we only accept checks. B. All inquires that ask for a 'deal' will not be answered.)

Great hiking out of Greenbriar just six miles east (away from the downtown traffic); the Glades is less than three miles (again east); downtown Gatlinburg is just over one mile away (west); Food Lion--the only grocery store in Gatlinburg--is about two miles east; Roaring Fork Motor Trail is within walking distance; Dollywood Family Theme Park is 8.5 miles north; and if you want to reach the MAIN entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park it is just 2.5 miles west/southwest.

Bear Forest is our second home--and not surprisingly--has a bear theme inside decor...including original watercolor paintings and photos of bears by local artists. And, the cabin gets its name by the fact that bears appear around the cabin frequently. Not dangerous--just treat them with respect---watch from a distance, admire and enjoy!

Directions in a Nutshell:

Light #3 Gatlinburg: Turn onto E. Parkway/Highway 321/TN 73;
Roaring Fork Motor Trail (Light #1A): Turn right onto;
Loop Road: Turn right onto;
Hilltop Road: Straight (Loop veers right);
Foothills Drive: Straight (Hilltop veers left);
Abrams Falls Way: Go PAST the 'Abrams Falls' Street sign (bearing left) and then at the end of Foothills bear right onto Abrams Falls Way;
Bear Forest: Third cabin on the left on Abrams Falls Way.
Note: Abrams Falls Way is a loop, so it can be accessed two ways off of Foothills Drive. We are suggesting the SECOND right off of Foothills onto Abrams Falls.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We (Larry Strout and Penny Rodrique) acquired Bear Forest in June of 2009. Larry is a university professor and Penny is a curriculum and intervention specialist for an elementary school. We, and our daughter, Nicole, started visiting the Smokies in 1995 and returned frequently mainly to HIKE! We love hiking! We've been to the summit of Mount LeConte more times than you can count! Bear Forest is really a summer home and a Christmas/New Year's retreat that we have now decided to share with you. There are two comments everyone makes after staying at our cabin--'We could live there!' and 'We didn't want to leave!'

Why the Owner Chose Gatlinburg, TN, USA:
Perfect spot for our needs. Hiking, arts and crafts, downtown Gatlinburg, and the grocery store are all close (along with great hiking trails) and the cabin brings us peace and quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Look out the window at dawn or at dusk and you might see a bear, deer, wild turkeys, or other wildlife.
