You're in for a Treat! You won't be disappointed!

Welcome to Smoky Bear Retreat! Located in the city of Gatlinburg and in the heart of the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Community in the quaint Morning Mist Resort. You're about a 10 minute drive from the center of downtown which is just over 4 miles away. Surrounded by trees and other cabins. Private enough to enjoy the seclusion of the natural surroundings. This is a safe community with friendly neighbors throughout! There is a level driveway with room enough for two vehicles only! This adorable wood cabin has its entire interior constructed with tongue and groove pine wood panels and a lovely stained wood siding on the outside. Laminate floors upstairs and down, tile in the bathroom floors and carpet on the stairs. The cabin is complete with Two Master Bedrooms With new Log King Beds, ensuite Full Baths, a Flat Screen TV In Each. These two rooms are located on bottom floor upon entry. Leave your luggage! Next, upstairs is the living space with brand new floor. There is a Sleeper Sofa on the Pool Table side of room in a somewhat private enclave and Two more Flat Screen TV's, a Complete Kitchen except for a dishwasher, a dining table with chairs, a Pool Table, and a Half Bath. Outside there is a Brand New semi-private Decking with Seating, a Lovely Treed View, and a Hot Tub just outside the living area.

This is just the beginning of your exciting adventure when you stay with us! Come here and explore! Kitchen is stocked, but you may want to bring paper plates, cups, and plasticware because there is no dishwasher. You certainly can opt to wash any dishes or utensils you use by hand in the kitchen sink. But after all, you're on vacation and it is a great excuse not to do so many dishes!

We know that even though you are on vacation you can't live without TV and wifi internet! Free local calling only. City Water! Instead, of well water and so much more... Please enjoy your stay with us and thank you for choosing Smoky Bear Retreat!

About Deirdre and Tricia

Welcome to our property; Deirdre and Tricia, whom also speaks Spanish. We are the proud owners of Smoky Bear Retreat.

Deirdre and Tricia purchased this Cabin in 2016

Why Deirdre and Tricia chose Gatlinburg

Our Cabin is located in a prime area! You are situated within the Gatlinburg City Limits in the Arts and Crafts Community. Very close to all necessary conveniences like a grocery store, pharmacy, gas station, post office, police and fire rescue, shops, and restaurants! This entire area is amazing; there is an abundance of things to do and places to see! This is our one and only cabin and we've made significant improvements to make it the most comfortable and adorable place possible; so, you can feel pampered and renewed during your stay with us! There is easy parking for two cars in the driveway. A flat yard to enjoy, a picnic table and charcoal grill. Basically, all the amenities of home, but in a cabin like atmosphere. It's truly a fun place to be to explore and relax!

What makes this Cabin unique

This cabin is truly unique, and the location is superb. We are perfectly located in the city of Gatlinburg. Close to everything and yet just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. You can go out for daily excursions, come back to the cabin to change, and then go right back out or just stay in! That's how conveniently located this cabin is. Remember to be nice to our cabin and to our neighbors! No loud parties! Treat it like your home away from home and be sure to come back next year. Thank you for staying with us!

You can even get on the Trolley car up the street which will take you all over the area!

The owners are very nice after chatting with them and welcoming as well, it is very close to gatlinburg downtown. We will definitely be back for a family vacation! Thanks Family fun or Romance for a great stay!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Amy R.

                                                                  Absolutely beautiful! This cabin was more than what we expected. Just minutes from the arts and craft district. Only 10-15 minutes from everything we wanted to do in Gatlinburg and about 20-25 minutes from everything in pigeon forge. My family truly enjoyed our stay and plan to stay here again.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Nice family holiday get-away

                                                                  Tonia V.Geneva, Ohio

                                                                  Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay. House was clean and just as pictures showed. It was set up perfect for my husband and myself, and our two young adult daughters.

                                                                  It did snow a little while we were there. Happy we at least had an AWD vehicle. The one road getting there and leaving is one way and very narrow. No room for sliding at all. We are used to living/driving in the Ohio snowbelt, but this was a little tricky!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Sorry roads were a bit tricky for navigation. That is why I give specific instructions in the email I send prior to arrival with the cabin code and other pertinent information as to the proper directions to the cabin so you don't encounter the narrow one way road! I specifically mention the easiest and most direct passage to the cabin. As to the entire area of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge; it is a mountainous area especially in the higher elevations, but you can expect easy access to and from my cabin with 2WD. The cabin is within the city limits very accessible to all the attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and the Great Smokies surrounding area!

                                                                  Great property and location

                                                                  Donna L.Cincinnati, OH

                                                                  Comfortable stay

                                                                  It’s a great little cabin that’s close to everything.

                                                                  Todd M.Birmingham

                                                                  Stayed here with my 22 and 6 year old son. We had a great stay. It’s in a quiet location, that’s still close to the entertainment areas. If there was one thing I wish was different, it would be that the ESPN channels were part of the satellite subscription. The WiFi was a little hit or miss too. Otherwise, this place was terrific.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Hi Todd, I'm sorry there weren't enough ESPN channels for you. I will look into that. I know about the wifi internet. We were up this summer and dealt with this issue extensively. Sometimes it's spot on and at other times less so. AT&T is our provider and it's the best they can provide at this time. It's a mountain town and we are one of the lucky cabins to even get internet at all. Thanks for your positive review! Deirdre:-)) Update: We now have the ESPN channels!!

                                                                  Wonderful experience!!!

                                                                  Saran A.

                                                                  Owner's Response:
