About Staci Helman-Smith

Welcome to our home away from home, Big Bear Lodge!

We are farmers from northeast Indiana who found our favorite retreat in the mountains of Tennessee more than 25 years ago. Since then, we have been vacationing here each year with our children and later, our grandchildren too. After years of renting, we decided to find a cabin of our own, to be able to add our own personal touches, and make it 'ours' when we gather for holidays.

Each room was decorated and named by different members of our family. Our master bedroom is the Suite Retreat. Each of our three children decorated their rooms - The Bear Cave, Moose Den and Majestic Hideaway. The entire family decorated the John Deere room, a nod to our livelihood, and the M&M room is for our grandchildren.

We hope that you enjoy the cabin as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to tell you and your folks that we had a wonderful time last week. The cabin is just great and so well outfitted! It worked for my family beautifully--the 3 couples all had their own space, my granddaughters enjoyed the bunk room, my bachelor son did well in the John Deere room, and the family voted me into the upstairs suite--way too big for me but, heck, a little luxury now and again is OK!



We all took a night to make dinner with one reserved to eat all the leftovers. I decided I'd take everyone out on our last night to avoid my cooking assignment and we had a great time at the Crystelle Creek Restaurant keeping the singer busy with our requests. I lost track of how many times my younger granddaughter added to the singer's tip jar! My one son elected to do Pizza on his night and we had been kidding him about him having to go out and finding a takeout miles and miles away! And lo and behold you clued him into a resource for DELIVERY! . We could not believe a driver would head up into those hills! We're lucky at home if a driver will go more than a mile on the straight!



This trip had an element of deja vu for me. More years ago than I care to admit, my husband and I took our 3 oldest kids to the Smokey Mountains areas of NC and TN and I always thought it would be great to return--and we never did. Sooooooo, when I decided to take the whole family on a week's vacation (we've never had this much time all together since my oldest got married 20 years ago!) it seemed like an option--if we could get everyone with a week available at the same time. Well, it worked out just great and we saw and did so much--Dollywood and Rafting and Zip lining and Forbidden Cavern. We rented a boat for a day on Douglas Lake. We hiked and explored and checked out many of the arts and crafts locations, found some great barbecue. We saw wildlife and enjoyed playing games and just sitting on the rockers watching a downpour or two and the sun breaking through the "smoke" in the mornings. We found Pigeon Forge a bit too commercialized to our liking, but Gatlinburg was just about right! Now there's talk of having to do something like this again...



Oh, and lest I forget, the speed with which the A/C problem was corrected was remarkable!



Thanks for helping us have a memorable experience!

Wonderful time at the cabin and with the owner of the cabin

  • 5 of 5

The location of the cabin and the roads leading to the cabin were great. Though there were tall trees around the back of the cabin, we were able to enjoy a spectacular view of the mountain from the decks. My son and I enjoyed the hot tub every morning while viewing the "smoke" lift from the mountain. I really enjoyed communicating with Staci. She is very attentive and goes out of her way to make sure everything is in perfect order.

Great place and everything was in great shape. We had a family vacation with a total of 10 and the accommodations were perfect. The only complaint I heard all week about the mattress with the exception of the master bedroom needing replacement because of center sag. All in all and we really loved being far away from the insanity of Gatlinburg. For a family retreat this place is a 5 star. Kitchen and bathrooms were great and a fantastic view from the deck. Rocky the raccoon visits nightly and the kids loved it. We have every year for the last 8 rented a places from one coast to the other and even Canada for the family gathering. This is near on at everyone top of the list. Thanks to the owner for making it available and such great accommodations.

Practically Perfect in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

You must stay at Big Bear for the ultimate TN experience. The home is spacious yet cozy and warm. There were 12 of us and while we had plenty of room to spread out, we also enjoyed the coziness of the den and the game room. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. This was the first cabin we have been to (and we have been doing this for 5 years now) that we found a FULLY stocked kitchen as far as appliances, dishes, pots and pans etc. The bedrooms were nice, the beds very comfortable and everyone had their own bath. The deck was beautiful and the view spectacular. I cannot even begin to tell you how clean everything was when we go there. We all were very impressed! Stacie, the owner, was a warm and wonderful person to work with and her home is what dream vacations are made of. We ate too much, drank too much and laughed just enough. We will be going back and WE WILL be going to Big Bear. You will not be disappointed!! This property is practically perfect in every way!

Perfect place for a family retreat

  • 5 of 5

There were eight adults and four children in our family and we enjoyed every inch of this lovely cabin. Having two large gathering places allowed us all enough space to watch sports and Hallmark movies at the same time. The hot tub was a hit and having a bathroom for every bedroom was appreciated. The televisions were perfect and I can't think of one thing I would change. We were close enough to town to be able to see the aquarium and the outlet shopping. We also saw some of the recent fire devastation. Our hearts go out to those affected. Thank you for sharing this property and Merry Christmas.

Half a Century Birthday Celebration 10-6-2016 to 10-10-2016

  • 5 of 5

What an Awesome weekend we had!! We had a group of 10 girls, all either nurses or physicians celebrating 2 friends 50th birthday. The house was perfect for our group with everyone having plenty of room to sleep and the 6 bathrooms always a plus!! The mornings started with our coffee on the deck overlooking the mountains. It was so peaceful! Exactly what we needed. I was so pleased with how well equipped the kitchen was with pots, pans, utensils, dishes etc. I have stayed in multiple cabins in this area and I must say, this one was the best equipped for cooking!!

The beds were all very comfortable. The house was very clean. I loved that the table could seat all of us for our breakfast and even more room with the barstools!

Great location close to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We had an amazing experience at Climb Works! We also went horseback riding at stables not far from the cabin.

The owner was excellent to work with!! We had originally booked a house in Florida and the reservation got cancelled by the owner. I was slightly hesitant to rebook afraid of this happening again. Stacey was so friendly and made me feel at ease!! Very easy to work with. She always answered my emails within 24 hours and gave clear instructions and directions.

We all had do much fun that the girls all want me to start planning another adventure. If we decide to come back to Tennessee, I will definitely stay at this cabin again!!
