This cabin is everything you are looking for in a vacation to the mountains. It is beautiful. It is so tranquil and peaceful on the wrap around porches. You will never want to leave. Cabin is close to town and easy to get to. Gated community with pool. I highly recommend this cabin!

Beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this house. It was secluded but still easy to get to. The house was spacious and comfortable. The kids loved the pool table and hot tub. We grilled outside and I took a few naps on the rocking chair in the porch looking at the mountains. Smoky Mountain park was easy to get to as was everything else. Janice is responsive and an awesome host. I highly recommend.

Janice was a great hostess, she went out of way to assure we had a great experience to share.

We totally enjoyed our family stay even though it rained and we didn’t see any bears at the cabin. We were visited by a couple of playful raccoons who chased each other onto the middle deck, they were a rolling ball of fur that circled the deck then scampered off. Then there were the flying squirrels, one climbed down the edge of the cabin then eased out onto the railing while we were relaxing on porch. An amazing experience to see them flying off the roof to the trees below.

The cabin was very quiet and secluded but not to far from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville. It had enough room to accommodate our family of 10 with plenty of room to spare. We will definitely be returning.

Great weekend trip!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a weekend trip to Gatlinburg and wished we could have stayed longer. We spent quite a bit of time sitting on the decks, playing pool, and enjoying the hot tub. Janice was quick to respond when the power went out during a thunderstorm one evening. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy Black Bear Peaks!

Comfortable and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear Peaks is a great place to stay while visiting the Smoky Mountain area. The beds are comfy and plentiful, the seating/eating area was great for eating and playing games at night, the deck has great chairs and viewing areas on all 3 levels, the hot tub and indoor jacuzzi's were great (although not enough hot water to completely fill) and the pool table area was very nice. As other reviewer's have noted, the pictures don't do the house justice in that the place is much roomier and brighter than the pictures reflect. The location is very close to all the attractions in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville (Gatlinburg is a little farther but still an easy drive). Being from Illinois and still not used to mountain driving the drive up to the house from the gate is a little scary. The "back way" past the pool is a little farther and less steep but still a bit tight and intimidating but if you want to stay in the mountains you have to deal with it. I was worried driving back in the dark but turning my brights on made it doable. Again, I am from IL so not used to it and if I can handle it, most people can. Janice is great to work with as she was already sending my deposit back during my drive home! We have done VRBO a lot over the past several years and it usually takes weeks to get a deposit back so that was a nice surprise. I would definitely recommend Black Bear Peaks for any vacation to the Smokys!

Couldn’t have asked for much more than what was provided. Great view, convenient location, and still private. Well maintained property. Thank you for sharing it with our family.

Car: necessary

Shagbark is a gated community only 12 minutes from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. Yet it is very private with cabins in a very private wooded development with wonderful mountain views.
