The furniture is rustic Appalachian. The washer/dryer and an iron and ironing board are located near the bedrooms.

The cabin is decorated with a bear theme. The center level has the living area and fireplace, dining area, kitchen and a half bath.
The back deck comes equipped with a gas barbeque grill, a table and benches, 2 rockers, and a hot tub. The covered porch on the front of the cabin features a bench swing for you to enjoy out of the elements.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My husband and I are from Knoxville and we grew up loving this area and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We both are graduates from the University of Tennessee. We spent our childhoods vacationing in Gatlinburg and the GSMNPark, and we took our children there for vacations in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and camping in Cades Cove and Elkmont. Our decision to purchase a cabin home in the Smoky's was an easy one! We liked the Smoky Mountain Village location because the views are unbeatable and the location is close to everything. Our family still uses the cabin for special occasions. I am an avid hiker and have hiked all the trails in the GSMNPark which totals over 840 miles. My husband is an avid runner and he frequents the Gatlinburg Trail outside of Gatlinburg which runs beside a beautiful creek. Our children use the cabin because there is so much to do and so many close attractions. We have many fond family memories from Bear Cub, it is a great home get-away.

Why the Owner Chose Smoky Mountain Village (Gatlinburg, TN, USA):
Since we are from Knoxville and grew up visiting the Smokies and Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, we knew we wanted a second home in the Smokies. Our property borders the National Park and it is almost on the top of a mountain...the road dead-ends a half mile from our entrance! The views are what sold us though. From our back deck we have a 180 degree vista with Mt LeConte, elevation 6593, right in the middle! We can watch skiers traverse the slopes of OberGatlinburg and the Sky Tram climb up the mountain. Bears frequent the area as well as wild turkey and deer. On the other side of Smoky Mountain Village, we can see the lights from Pigeon Forge. On clear days you can see for miles!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This cabin has it all......great views out of the large picture windows on the back of the cabin and close proximity to restaurants, shops, attractions, hiking, theme parks, shows, horseback riding, skiing, golf, Cades Cove, Clingman's Dome, Space Needle, putt-putt golf, etc. Yet the cozy fireplace and comfortable interiors invite you to stay and never leave!
