Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath in wooded setting with Hot Tub

Faffoo Bear's Den

Located in the Cherokee National Forest at scenic Cosby, TN, this modest 1 Bedroom/Bath log cabin is only a short distance from the Smoky Mountain National Park. Home to the black bear, the wild turkey and a myriad of plants and animals unique to Eastern Tennessee, Faffoo Bear's Den provides a comfortable retreat for up to 3 adults or two adults and small children, with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a pull-out loveseat in the living room. The dining table seats 4.

The genuine log construction keeps the interior cool in summer and warm in winter, while air conditioning and electric heaters provide comfort during temperature extremes. Constructed in 2008, Faffoo Bear's Den is the cozy alternative to large and costly cabin rentals.

The spacious porch provides a scenic view of Ground Hog Creek, located on the property, and the creek provides the appropriate mountain music for carefree days and restful nights. Situate on 8.7 acres of mountain forest, hiking opportunities are there for those who like their hiking to be largely vertical.

While not equipped with some of the luxuries of larger cabins such as full kitchens, all the amenities needed for a long weekend getaway (or longer) are here. A modern bath (inside!) features a large walk-in shower. Microwave and convection ovens, griddle, charcoal grill and refrigerator combine to provide all the cooking opportunities short of roasting a turkey! The silverware and crockery is what you would expect in your own home and the knives are quality and kept sharp.

Dish TV with DVD player, video library and very limited satellite internet access provide entertainment when you aren't hiking, rafting on the Pigeon River, dining in one of Gatlinburg's many restaurants or visiting its tourist attractions and riding or driving the many "twisty" roads in the area. Gatlinburg is only 20 minutes away and historic Newport, TN is closer. Cosby Campground, operated by Park Service, is less than 2 miles with its hiking and bridle trails and fishing opportunities on Cosby Creek.

An RV site is also available with 30 amp service, cool mountain water, satellite TV wiring (provide your own receiver) and pleasant graveled patio area enclosed with a split rail fence just a few yards from the creek. This pull-thru site is available October 1st to April 1st by the day, week or month. Because of the uphill turn required to enter the site, we recommend trailers shorter than 30' unless you have 4 wheel drive and excellent trailering skills. Smaller motor-homes can negotiate the graveled drive as well.

Nestled in the arms of nature

  • 5 of 5

Our first time staying in a cabin and we absolutely loved it. It was so nice just hanging out and around the cabin when we were done for the day. Enjoyed Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. I don’t think we will ever book a hotel again.. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place. We had a wonderful time.

Great for Honeymooners

  • 5 of 5

We came to this area for our honeymoon, after saying for 5 1/2 years, we finally tied the knot. We wanted a place that was quiet and away from all the hussel and bustle of life.

A great place to stay, lots of towels, and only 45 minutes from Pigion Forge.

We recommend going on the auto-tours and the forbidden caverns.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. We look forward to hearing from you in the future in regards to your vacationing and anniversary needs. Congratulations on the wedding and wishing you both many wonderful years together.
