About the Property

Relax and enjoy 'Our Hiking Hideaway', a 3 level duplex cabin located at Big Bear Lodge & Resort. As our guest, you’ll enjoy all the amenities of the resort including free WiFi & Netflix, indoor and outdoor pools, game room, exercise room and conference room. Our cabin is private, yet conveniently located minutes away from Pigeon Forge attractions, restaurants and shopping. Drive 10 minutes further to experience Gatlinburg and the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Baxter the Bear resides in the upper loft, much to the delight of our guests. While you're staying with us, please help us complete the story of Baxter's journey to Our Hiking Hideaway.

Like to hike? We love to hike in the Smokies. The guidebooks located in the armoire on the main level are provided for our guests wishing to experience the magnificence of the Smokies through hiking. The guides describe location, distance, level of difficulty, and highlights of all 900 miles of trails within the National Park boundary. Note: this could keep you VERY busy!

On the upstairs level, you’ll find:
• a loft with love seat,
• Baxter the Bear (he's not fake),
• master bedroom with king bed, 2 dressers and TV,
• full bath with shower and tub

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We moved from Michigan to Knoxville in 1978 to attend the University of Tennessee. We immediately fell in love with East Tennessee so we stayed and raised our family here. We're so fortunate to live at the gateway to one of the country's most beautiful and popular national parks.

Why the Owner Chose Pigeon Forge, TN, USA:
We purchased our cabin in 2002 to allow us to be closer to the Smoky's for our hiking and fly-fishing adventures. The location at Big Bear Lodge & Resort is incredibly convenient to everything you need to enjoy this wonderful area. In 2012 we decided to forego rental management companies and rent on our own.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin is perfect for guests who want to be close to shopping, restaurants, and all of the Pigeon Forge attractions, but still feel a sense of privacy. We love to use it for our 'base camp' for hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains!
