This cabin has it all; location, luxury, amenities, the Smoky Mountain vacation you deserve. Our cabin is perfectly located mid-way between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Upon entering Loaded for Bear you are greeted with wide open spaces, floor to ceiling stacked stone fireplace and ridge-line vistas. As you explore this log luxury cabin you'll find the fully stocked gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. The 3 log king bed master suites, each has its own bath including Jacuzzi tub. Each bedroom is located on its own floor in the cabin, providing extra privacy for guests. A game room on lower level that has it all. Situated on a private lot with no neighbors looking down up or from either side giving you the privacy you expect. The two large decks, each with four log rocking chairs, provide perfect mountain ridge and sunsets views! Perfectly located just one mile off the Parkway with easy access to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge this amazing log cabin puts you close to it all.

We purchased our cabin summer of 2015 with an eye to "load" it with the amenities you want. The cook's kitchen has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances including a 5 burner double oven and a french door refrigerator with ice. Televisions in the Great Room and Game Room have been replaced with new 55" and 60" LED Smart TV's while each King Suite has it's own flat screen TV. Direct TV Premier Package (HBO,SHO, Cinemax, etc) and the Sports Xtra Regional Pkg with all College Games. Sunset views from the two expansive decks are enhanced by the 8 log rocking chairs and soothing hot tub, just right for after those waterfall hikes or a long day at Dollywood.

Location, Location, Location! Just 1 mile of easy paved road east of the Parkway, Loaded for Bear, is close to everything the Great Smoky Mountains has to offer. Once on the Parkway you are a short 1.5 miles to Pigeon Forge (Dollywood, Dollywood Splash Country, The Island, Dixie Stampeed, etc), 4 miles to Gatlinburg (Ripley's Aquarium, Downtown, etc.) and 3.5 miles to the National Forest bypass.

At days end retire to the game room where there is something for everyone. From chess to checkers, foosball, shuffle board and pool tables, Play Station 2 to board games or relax in the conversation area and watch your favorite blue ray movie on the 60" screen. For those with a little more energy who miss their morning run there is even a treadmill.

Loaded for Bear will be your next favorite vacation destination!

About Diane

My husband and I moved to North Carolina from Washington State to be closer to our three boys who all moved to the East Coast. We missed the mountains and everything the outdoors had to offer when we discovered the Great Smoky Mountains. We immediately fell in love and began our search for a True Log Cabin in this central location large enough to accommodate our family. Having managed long term rental properties back in Washington State I am excited to share this true gem with you.

Diane purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Diane chose Sevierville

We chose this area for one reason, location. Being just one mile from the Parkway between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge we are close to it all. Other locations we looked at require a long or trecherous drive that makes you think twice before you head out for the evening. This cabin is an easy drive on well paved roads.

What makes this cabin unique

We began our search looking at many properties and realized there are many differences in Cabins in this area. What we loved most about this cabin was:

1. Privacy with no other cabins on any of the four sides providing a secluded feel

2. True Log Cabin with all wood interior. No dry wall. So different from our primary residence.

3. Just a few miles to all major attractions. Do not have to plan a major excursion just to go to town.

4. Awesome 180 degree views from both decks where the sounds of nature prevails.

5. Three Large King Suites each with their own bath including Jacuzzi Tub. No reason to fight over who gets the best bed.

6. We added our personal touches as we remodeled.

Loaded for Bear Jan. 2-6, 2018

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Loaded for Bear during a cold week in January (lows in the single digits), but it was warm inside and great fun. The cabin is well-situated between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and it's easy to get to both and the National Park. It's cozy and holds heat well, we never felt chilly with the gas fireplaces and the hot tub. We hiked in the NP, skied, snowboarded and skated at Ober Gatlinburg and took in the arts and crafts of the area at Arrowmont and the artists colony.

The only downside of the cabin is the sleeping arrangement for more than 4 people. If you have people that like to stay up late and/or sleep late, there are really only two bedrooms which you can close off from the main areas (living room and game room). For us, it was a decidedly minor problem.

Thanks for a great stay, we would stay here again!
