This is a delightfully intimate cabin tastefully using the icon of the Smokies as inspiration for the Bear themed decor. Enjoy its open atmosphere—having a see-through fireplace between the living area and the bedroom. The Jacuzzi is located right off of the bedroom for a romantic encounter. The kitchen has all new appliances and is open to a very restful living space furnished with a cozy couch, oversized chair and flat screen TV. The back porch has a hot tub and is equipped with retractable shades that can be lowered for a more private setting. There is also BBQ grill and table for that outdoor dining experience. Prepare to relax and be quiet pleased with your time spent in 'Running Bear'

About Matthew Leslie
Vaughn & Margaret Leslie. We live in Dandridge and have other cabins in Echota. The cabins have proved to be rewarding in the friendships that have evolved with our guests and fellow cabin owners.
Matthew Leslie purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Matthew Leslie chose Sevierville
This is a quality maunfactured Honka log home from Finland. It had been a topic of our 'future addition' conversations for some time. We decided 'Running Bear' would be a perfect companion to our very popular 1BR 'Lakota Wolf cabin and we were fortunate to purchase this cabin in May 2013.
What makes this Cabin unique
Very intimate. Just off the beaten path yet feels very 'away' as if it's just you/yours and the icon of the Smoky Mountains -The Bears. Enjoy!

I ended up leaving a day early, for only one reason. The bed is excruciatingly hard. To the point, I woke up hurting after the two nights slept on it. This is the one and only reason I would not stay here again.
*The owner is SUPER nice and helpful
*The cabin is nicely done. We stay in the area about 4x a year and many cabins are very cheaply built. Not this one.
*Kitchen is very well appointed
*Plenty of available towels (A big plus)
*Quiet area (although it isn't remote, if that is what your'e looking for)
*Nice porch, front and back
I would certainly have given it a 5 star rating had it not been for the bed. My back hurts thinking about it :)
An adorable cabin in a prime location!
My husband and I loved how the cabin was away from the traffic and congestion of Pigeon Forge but was close enough to enjoy the fun. The cabin was well cared for and had a mountain charm. The space was great for just the two of us and the porches with the hot tub made the whole space cozy. The owner is fantastic!
Wonderful place to stay
Great atmosphere and a good location. Tucked far enough away to feel isolated, but close enough to attractions to not make it difficult to get out and do things.
Minor issues during our stay were immediately addressed and corrected by the owner. Will definitely stay here again and be looking into larger properties of his for family trips!
Cozy and quite
We had a very relaxing stay at the cabin. I liked that it was close to Piegion Forge and Gatlinburg but not right in either. Very quite and away from it all. Would recommend and would love to stay here again in the future. Thanks again for letting us rent your cabin!
Cozy, well stocked cabin in a good location!
The cabin was very comfortable and cozy and we had everything we needed. I didn’t give it five stars because we couldn’t get the fireplace to work so I wish there were directions on how to operate it...I didn’t want to disturb the owner just to turn it on. Also the cabin check-out directions said to throw away our trash in dumpsters when leaving echota - but there were no dumpsters. We had to keep the trash in our vehicle on the way home. Otherwise, we loved this cabin and hope to get to return some day!
Centrally located on easily accessible paved road 1/2mile off 6 lane Highway 66 near most of the activities folks do when they visit the Smokies. Knifeworks,Dollywood,Pigeon Forge,Bass Pro,Douglas Lake, Wilderness Resort & Waterpark are all just minutes away.
