About the property

What a cabin should be! Our 1 bedrm hideaway is tailored for a trip for 2 & Pet!

Bare Hugs is away from it all, tucked away in the stately trees of Bluff Mountain, yet close to everything. The cabin is five minutes from Pigeon Forge and Wears Valley!

Beautiful decor will make your stay delightful and romantic, a far cry from impersonal rentals. We have made Bare Hugs a hideaway haven for the two of you with a private hot tub in back, a large King bed inside, and a cozy swing in front. A fenced backyard and lots of room in the front is tailor made for your beloved pets to freely explore the land with you, so bring up to two with you!

Cable and free Wifi is included in your stay; enjoy the hot tub for two and a quiet porch to while away the time after a busy day in the park or exploring all Pigeon Forge has to offer.

The bedroom has a King bed and a pull out couch is available in the living area so you can bring the kids. A stone fireplace with wood provided will keep you warm all year or just provide that extra bit of romance in the evenings.

About Duke Walsen

I visited Wears Valley from my home up north over ten years ago and fell in love with the area. I felt at home in the mountains and realized pretty quickly that I could have my dream life. I retired and relocated to Wears Valley and now own two cabins of my own that my wife and I would love to share with you..

Duke Walsen purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Duke Walsen chose Sevierville

This cabin has a wonderful, central location and charm. I loved the backyard where couples can bring their pet along on vacation and not have to worry about them and I loved the spacious front yard that creates privacy and a welcoming outdoor haven for anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life.

What makes this cabin unique

A fenced yard in the back for your pet! The cabin is decorated beautifully and is cozy and close to Pigeon Forge. Love the real wood fireplace as well for romantic evenings.

Very nice and pet friendly cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable cabin. Nice pet area out back. The bed is very comfortable. The one thing that I would change is that I would pave the driveway instead of the gravel and easier access to the pet area ( like an opening from the deck to the pet area ). The refrigerator needs attention, it froze our tea and milk, we tried adjusting the thermostat, but in didn't help.

Perfect Week in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

What an adorable cabin! Music was playing when we first stepped inside. It was bright and open with a lovely cathedral ceiling. There were also snacks waiting for us on the counter...including a canister of dog treats! My husband and I stayed here with our dog Odie and we had a wonderful time. The little road was great for walks and the backyard being fenced was very convenient too. The decor is so well thought out and really feels like you are staying in a home and not just a rental. The fireplace was perfect in the evening and there was even some firewood outside for us to use. We really appreciated the little things in the cabinets like tupperware, aluminum foil, salt and pepper and cutting boards. Other things were very nice too like the gas grill on the back porch, the Keurig type coffee maker in the kitchen and the mattress was very comfortable too! Duke, the owner, was wonderful to work with and answered every little question we had. He even gave us recommendations for where to eat and the best route to take to get to the Smokey Mountain National Park to avoid the traffic. If you are looking for a cabin near Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, we would highly recommend staying here!

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and just what we needed down to the porch light being on and music playing when we arrived. Not far from the Parkway yet far enough to be peaceful and quiet. We will be back.

Comfortable, clean and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Bear Hugs cabin! It was very clean, nicely appointed and had everything we needed. This is a charming cabin with all hard wood floors, that is important to us. It was close to town and quiet, again a priority for us. The front porch was so nice in the evenings, it is the perfect place to sit in the rockers and take in the peacefulness with someone you love.
