About the property

Beautiful Private Gated Community of Shagbark 1300 Beautiful Acres Pet Friendly

The Hiking Bear is a place you can relax with your loved ones in front of the fire or out on the deck enjoying the nature. This luxurious cabin is located in a gated community of Shagbark all the cabins are spread apart to maximize privacy, just minutes from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and all the main attractions. This cabin offers peace and serenity which will leave you feeling rested and restored. The fully equipped kitchen and gas grill will complete any culinary desires you may have. Enjoy a comfy night cuddled up, taking in the warmth of the double sided gas fireplace. The master suite also boasts an in room Jacuzzi. Enjoy the outdoors and do a little nature watching from the comfort of your own deck rocking chairs or take in the sights and sounds of a peaceful evening in the outdoor Hot tub. Being in the Smokies is a great place anytime of year, you can enjoy the nature by Hiking the trails or rafting the river or tubing your days away. We love this area for all the things it has to offer. Cades Cove is near by and a great place to take a hike and take in all the Beauty of the Smoky Mountains. And since we are pet friendly you don't have to leave your dog at home either.

We want you to feel at home whether its just you and your honey or if you bring the little ones there is room for 4 to sleep and enjoy. There is also a community pool and tennis court you can get out and play or cool off in the pool.

There is level parking and you are only about 10 minutes from the main Pigeon Forge Parkway, close enough to be part of the action but far enough to enjoy the quiet side of the mountains in Wears Valley. We hope you enjoy the Hiking Bear.

About Jennifer Murphy

We started coming to the Smokies in 2006 and have come back every year since. We finally decided this is where we want to spend our retirement. But we still have some years until that happens so we decided to buy a cute cozy cabin in the community of Shagbark. With the hopes of staying and sharing it with others until we make the big move for good. We love everything about Tennessee & are so happy to own a little piece.

Jennifer Murphy purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jennifer Murphy chose East

We chose The Hiking Bear property because of its beauty and location in the Village of Shagbark, a residential community in Sevierville, Tennessee—just a stones throw from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, the Foothills Parkway, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our community is a gated, 24-hour guarded village of nearly 1,300 acres of mountainous woodlands. It's a secure, quiet, peaceful retreat that offers an escape from the days excursions to nearby Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium, Cades Cove, the dozens and dozens of Smoky Mountain hiking trails, and the arts and crafts community. We love it and we are sure you will too.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the Shagbark Community it is private and feels like your away from it all, but yet you are only 7 miles to the Parkway. Its gated and has 24/7 security which we love. With 1300 acres its like our own park with our own wildlife to enjoy. We decorated with love for Bears and things that represent Tennessee. The Hiking Bear is our cabin name as we love to Hike the trails and we love to observe the Bears from a distance so a Hiking Bear it is. We hope you enjoy the cabin and the home like feel we have tried hard to create for our guests. Also if you are looking for a larger place we have another cabin please check our other listing VRBO Listing #814038

Adorable and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. We had everything we needed and loved the cozy feel and the decor of the cabin. We especially enjoyed the double sided fireplace and the hot tub. It was a peaceful location yet not too far from Pigeon Forge and all the attractions. Would love to come back and stay again in the future. Perfect for a couple's get away.

Friendly, romantic, secluded, great spot and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cabin and a lovely place near pigeon Forge. Only a few minutes away from Kroger's as well as other convenient places, comes with fully stocked kitchen and a great hot tub as well as a Jacuzzi. The hosts were nothing but gracious from the beginning and let us know that we could contact them if we needed anything. They were very helpful as were the people that worked at the guard post. This is a great place especially for a couple on vacation wanting seclusion!

Great week in the Smoky Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Nice little cabin with amazing privacy in a gated community. Very fun drive up the back roads to the cabin. We have a Jeep and didn't have any problems but I wouldn't have felt so good in a small car but plenty of other people seemed to do just fine.

Cabin was just as it appeared in the photographs. Very clean and everything was in working order for us when we got there.

One morning the power was out when we woke up, I emailed Jennifer to see if she knew anything. Within 15 minutes she had responded and let us know the electric company was doing some repairs and it would be back up shortly. We ran out for a quick breakfast and everything was fine when we got back.

The gas grill is directly hooked up to the gas line so plenty of gas to grill up anything you want. Hot tub worked great. The jacuzzi tub in the bedroom looks cool but the hot water heater doesn't have enough capacity to fill it up before running out of hot water.

Overall we loved our stay at the Hiking Bear and would be happy to return. We would certainly recommend this property to friends / family.

Owner's Response: Sounds like you had a great week at the cabin and enjoyed the grilling on the deck too. Perfect. We are happy you used all the amenities the cabin has to offer. The roads in the area are well maintained by our community so you never have to worry about a car truck or motorcycle all our guests have arrived with no problem at all. Thank you for spending your vacation at The Hiking Bear and we hope you visit again next year.
