Gatlinburg is also known for its Golf, specialty shops, restaurants, Whitewater Rafting, biking, hiking, and Canopy zip lines.

Here you can enjoy a day at Dollywood. Or one of the many other activities found in Pigeon Forge, such as water parks, Titanic Museum, Wonder Works, Magic Quest, miniature golf, go karts, fairs, dinner theater shows, shopping outlets, and pancake houses galore.

Bears Escape Cabin is a great location to try out Dollywood — This year open the first winged roller coaster in the country. The ride, which opened in April, delivers a heart-stopping twist on regular roller-coaster seats. Seats jut out on either side of the track, so have nothing above or below them but air — giving them a real sensation of flying as they scream at more than 60 mph through four inversions and a zero-gravity roll. Of course, the 200-foot-high coaster’s cars are built to look like the national bird.

Some of our favorite hikes are:

Mingo Falls

Mingo Falls is on the Cherokee Indian Reservation (Qualla Boundary), just outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park. No special permits are required for access to the reservation. At 120 feet tall, the waterfall is one of the tallest and most spectacular in the southern Appalachians. The hike to the waterfall is only 0.4 miles in length, but is considered moderate in difficulty. Access Trail: Pigeon Creek Trail Trailhead: From Oconaluftee Visitor Center, drive south (toward Cherokee) on US-441 and take the second left onto Big Cove Road. At the first stop sign turn left and drive 4.5 miles to Mingo Falls Campground, where the trail begins.

Juney Whank Falls

Juney Whank Falls is divided into an upper and lower section. Both can be viewed from the footbridge which crosses Juney Whank Branch at the falls. Together they drop 90 feet from top to bottom. The trail to the waterfall is 0.8 miles roundtrip and is considered moderate in difficulty.

Grotto Falls

Trillium Gap Trail meanders through an old-growth hemlock forest and actually runs behind the 25 foot high waterfall. The cool, moist environment near the falls is ideal for salamanders and summer hikers. The hike is 3 miles roundtrip and considered moderate Trailhead: From the parkway in Gatlinburg, turn at traffic light #8 and follow Historic Nature Trail into Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Take Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail to stop #5 where there is a large parking area. This one is close and absolutely beautiful. I last hiked it with my 60 year old mother and 4 nieces and nephews ranging in age from 3-11 years old. We saw 3 bears at a distant, swam in the reflective pool of the falls, and had a fun-filled day without over doing it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very nice cabin. Close to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg & Smoky Mt. National Park, yet you are definitely away from the hustle of the towns. Cabin was very clean and well stocked. Owner in a gem. Owner replied quickly to any concerns we had and went out of her way to ensure a comfortable stay. Spring time in this area is breath taking!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the beautiful cabin. We do have working wifi, but it is password protected. If you had trouble logging on, I wish you would of called and I would of walked you through it. I stayed there the last week of August to do computer work in peace and quiet and the wifi worked perfectly. When I spoke to you the day you checked in, I offered you a complimentary cleaning and trash pick up halfway through your stay, but never heard back from you. We have such a great cleaning crew that are so attentive and helpful. Hopefully our 2 bear-proof garbage cans worked out well. We do have a beautiful hottub that is emptied and cleaned after each guest. I hope you enjoyed that and the great ammenities this cabin has.

Enjoyable visit

  • 4 of 5

The trip was enjoyable. The cabin was clean and definitely convenient to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The drive to the cabin was rather scary the first trip but got better each time.

The driveway really needs to be fixed for smaller cars. The dishwasher was inoperable, but not a big deal. Also the free wifi apparently had the password changed and Dorothy was not aware so there was no wifi available.

For the most part, the cabin was very nice, Dorothy was very personable and responded pretty quickly when a storm knocked out power for a few hours.

I would just recommend anyone renting this cabin go into it with an open mind. After all, life is what you make it.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I too love the openness of the main room. When I am cooking I still feel apart of the family activity. I am glad you enjoyed the hot tub, the secluded back deck is very relaxing.
