On top of ole Smoky! Amazing! This 2 story cabin is above the rest! It is for the guests with some adventure at heart and those that are up for a mountain drive. The Bear's Den is newly renovated and there are many wonderful things about it! The atmosphere is incredibly beautiful and peaceful!
(Pets are NOT allowed. Also please see NOTES BELOW for vehicle and road info in Winter and wet weather.) The cabin has an open floor plan upstairs and down, with many log furniture pieces too. You'll take comfort in knowing this cabin is clean and sanitary as well as the jacuzzi and hot tub! Downstairs can sleep 4 (more if you are up for a cot), the cabin is open for family or a few friends with the living area, flat screen, a new queen sized pull out couch, a stacked rock fireplace, windows all around to bring in the outdoors, and a trundle bed, kitchen/dining and new large bath with tub shower combo, Jacuzzi and a large window to view the great outdoors. The front deck has a great view and a very nice hot tub for your privacy and enjoyment! The cabin is lightly decorated for each season and with a Christmas tree sometime after Thanksgiving to make your cabin home away from home.
Upstairs, the entire floor is a wonderful master suite with a king sized log canopy bed, its own sitting area, private deck with rockers to soak in the mountain air. A flat screen, vaulted ceiling, full bath and a stacked rock fireplace are also upstairs !
This cabin is perfect for families or just the two of you!!
Some special notes to make your stay as special as it should be are listed below!
CHECK IN MUST BE BEFORE DARK FROM NOVEMBER 1 THROUGH FEBRUARY 28. We are on Eastern Time, so please take that into consideration for planning your trip. It may be necessary to begin the next day instead of rushing to get to the cabin or arriving too late in the evening. The first time driving up the mountain is daunting for most guests in the dark and especially if it's raining. Planning is essential.
VEHICLE NOTES: The road is concrete all the way to the cabin and is about 1/2 mile long. Front wheel drive vehicles do well most all of the year, although hybrids may not pull the mountain. In winter all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive is needed in case of snow or rain. If the roads are dry, these features aren't needed. In wet or wintery weather, Pick ups most often need some weight in the back.
