Smoky Sunrise is located in prestigious Black Bear Falls Resort. Just 2.5 miles from downtown Gatlinburg, Ober Gatlinburg, ski slopes and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park entrance. Our cabin is easily accessible just 1 mile from traffic light 2A 0n hwy 321 very near the Galtinburg post office, fire dept.,police dept. and med center. This location gives our guest the privacy of staying in a beautiful tree covered resort yet feeling safe because the city offices are nearby. There are also banks, a grocery store, trolley pickup, restaurants plus much more within 7 minutes of the cabin location. Smoky Sunrise is also near all attractions.

The resort is unique because the cabins are built along the natural lay of the land. Smoky Sunrise is approximately 100 ft. from neighboring cabins and shares a private drive with the cabin next door. The HOA has rigid rules that help insure that the beauty of the natural environment is preserved while adding flowers, shrubs, and naturally flowering plants to enhance the beauty of the property. The resort is well maintained and cared for the entire year.

Smoky Sunrise is just what the name implies. If you get up early you can watch the sunrise over the Smoky Mountains from the great room or deck, and experience the beautiful ever-changing colors as the sun rises. The photos of the mountains were taken at different times of the year without the use of zoom lens.

The resort offers a private, heated swimming pool within a short walking distance of the cabin. If you should choose to drive, there is a parking area available. Also available is a spacious clubhouse that can be rented for weddings, private parties, and other occasions. Fees are very reasonable.

Accommodations: 1750 Sq. ft. Cabin with 3 bedroom, 3 baths & 1 convertible bed. Sleeps 6 -8.

Smoky Sunrise is a true log cabin with 3 private bedroom/bath suites on 3 separate levels plus a sofa sleeper in the game room.

The game room has a pool table, mini refrigerator, a microwave, plus plenty of seating. The great room faces a fantastic view of the Smoky Mountains. Mt. Le Conte, Mt. Guyot and Clingmans Dome.

There is a 50” TV and DVD player mounted over the fireplace in the Great Room. The dining area

can accommodate an 8 place seating. Our kitchen has everything you will need to prepare a meal and enjoy a view of the Smoky Mountains from the dining table.

There is also a charcoal grill if you choose to grill out and plenty of deck space for dining outside. Our cabin is equipped with 5 flat screen TVs with DVD players and DVDs for your enjoyment. High speed internet with WiFi is also available.

There is a Hot Tub located on the 2nd/main level. If you prefer a dip in the pool, it is just a short walk to the resort’s heated swimming pool and clubhouse that offers rental for weddings or private parties. If you book a reservation I will mail a packet to you that will include maps of the area and the Smoky Mountains, discount coupons for restaurants and attractions plus other brochures of interest.

I also have a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in Sevierville Tn. 1block off the Parkway near many attractions. VRBO #642125

About Roger

We are very close to our family and we love the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains. Our goal in purchasing Smoky Sunrise is to share with our family & other families the great & fun times that can be experienced at our cabin. We believe a stay at Smoky Sunrise will give quests memories that will last a life time.

Roger purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Roger chose Gatlinburg

We chose Black Bear Falls because of the convenience of the location and is easily accessible to all the places we love to visit in the Great Smoky Mountains. The beauty of the resort was another factor. Its natural surroundings, beautiful well maintained landscaping & layout of the resort were also a plus.

What makes this cabin unique

Beautiful, quiet, peaceful surroundings located just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, Arts & Crafts community, Ski Slopes and hiking trails. Easily accessible with no winding mountain roads. Heated swimming pool and clubhouse just a short walk away. Outstanding mountain views!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The design of Smoky Sunrise is fantastic! Just a few of the great features of our cabin - the mountain view from the great room and decks - large user-friendly kitchen - 3 bedroom/bath suites each on a different level, ensuring privacy for all - large game room. We take pride in the cleanliness of our cabin and have made every effort to make it feel like a home away from home.

No Better Cabin in the Smokies!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is in my favorite neighborhood of Gatlinburg and is ideally located near downtown Gatlinburg and the entrance to the park. It is very comfortable and has great views of the Smokies from the main floor deck. I will certainly be back as soon as possible!

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the house was VERY clean and in a great location (grocery store right around the corner). The living room was furnished so that we all (four adults and a child) had plenty of room to sit and lounge. The kitchen was small but had most of what we needed to cook each meal, since there aren't a lot of great (healthy) places to eat in the area. We could have used a couple of extras- a cutting board, maybe some foil/saran wrap for leftovers. The hot tub was a great edition- warm and ready for us when we arrived! The only other thing I would suggest is some upgraded towels- the ones at the house worked, but were a bit worn and not so soft. Thanks for a great place to stay while we visited TN!

Very comfortable and close to Gatlinburg

  • 5 of 5

I took my daughter and teenage granddaughters for a short trip a few days before Thanksgiving. I can verify this property was very clean and well-maintained. My girls loved the hot tub. The owner was very easy to work with and supplied plenty of information about the area. I liked not having all the extra fees and expenses that most rentals have. When the fires came through Gatlinburg, we heard a rumor that Black Bear Falls was destroyed. We were so relieved that it was only a rumor. I would recommend this cabin!

Awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 had a great time at Roger's cabin. Close to town, easy to find, comfy, cozy, well maintained and clean! We had fun using the pool table and jacuzzi. All the beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra blankets. There is also a good assortment of dvd's available. Kitchen was well equipped although I used the stove maybe twice - hey, I was on vacation! Haha! There are 3 levels and each level had a bedroom and it's own bathroom. Worked out great for my family. Roger was easy to get a hold of and was very kind and accomodating. Would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone! So happy it snowed while we were there, being that we live in Florida. The kids had a blast! The best part was that, the owner Roger, being in an association, the driveway was plowed for us which was very helpful! Thanks again for a great vacation and accomodations!
