Beautiful Private Gated Community of Shagbark & Pet Friendly!!
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 Pigeon Forge
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

This was the perfect getaway for my birthday to take a step away from it all and just relax. The cabin was just perfect for our needs, very clean and comfortable. It really eases my mind to be able to travel with my dog as well some place that she can relax too. We had everything we could have possibly needed except more time!
We love that you spent your birthday at The Hiking Bear and you all had a much needed break from the world. Thank you so much and come back anytime!
