About the property

A cozy cabin atop a beautiful mountain ridge with fantastic views!

Welcome to Chubby's Sleepy Bear Retreat- a completely renovated two bedroom cabin with on-suite bathrooms perched on a mountain ridge. Beautiful views of the mountains and downtown Sevierville provide that "get away from it all" feeling, yet it is less than a 10 minute drive to the Parkway, Dollywood, Cal Ripkin Experience and all the excitement of Pigeon Forge. Gatlinburg and the National Park are less than 20 minutes away.

As you arrive at the cabin you will see there is an outdoor grilling area. There is also a park bench and seating on the front porch. A great place to sit and relax! There is flat parking (unusual for this area!) for 2-3 vehicles or motorcycles.

When you enter the cabin the first thing you see is a wall of windows with an incredible view of the valley and mountains in the distance. At night, the lights of Sevierville twinkle and glow like hundreds of lightening bugs! To your left is a completely remodeled kitchen with stainless appliances, new cabinets and countertops. We have added a pantry for additional storage. The kitchen is fully equipped with a variety of small appliances including a regular and single serve coffee pot, crock pot and blender. To the right is the dining area with table and chairs - seating for 4 (there is an additional bench in the bedroom if you need extra seating). The brand new, full size stackable washer and dryer are just behind the door in the dining area.

The living area has plenty of comfortable seating - and the couch is also a queen sleeper sofa. There is a double-sided gas fireplace and a 55 inch LED Smart TV with sound bar. Cable and Netflix are provided to keep you entertained! We also have wireless internet access. But don't forget to unplug, we have plenty of board games and cards too!

There are two master bedrooms - each with king sized beds, 43 inch LED Smart TV's and ensuite full bathrooms. Each bedroom includes a full closet and dresser for plenty of clothing storage. The first master bedroom has a cozy reading area and the double-sided fireplace. We have added a gaming area in the second bedroom that features a Megatouch touch-screen game with over 100 games including puzzles, card games, trivia games, etc. (be careful- this game is addictive!). There is also a cocktail video game with 60 video games to choose from. Both bathrooms have been completely renovated with new tubs, toilets and vanities with storage for personal items.

While the inside of the cabin is a wonderful place to relax- the back deck is even better! Of course, there is that amazing view with plenty of seating to just sit and do nothing. There is a brand new hot tub on one end of the deck and a gas fire pit with four chairs on the other end. (There are also skewers hanging on the wall for toasting marshmallows!) Enjoy views of downtown Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. At night, you can see the LED Ferris Wheel at The Islands. On clear days, you can see over 60 miles and the Jellico mountains at the Kentucky/Tennessee boarder is in view. Sit on the deck and enjoy the sunset over Bluff Mountain to your left.

What about the wildfires fall of 2016? The cabin is located in an area hit by the wildfires. There are several cabins currently being rebuilt in the development of Eagle Crest. When we have been down working on the cabin, we have not found the construction to be inconvenient and, to us, it is a promise of better things to come! Also, the HOA has guidelines for hours of operation by contractors. It is actually quite quiet and peaceful. If you are wondering how the area looks, there are no obvious signs of fire in front of the cabin or behind you, and nature is quickly restoring other areas of the mountain. The view off the deck is as spectacular as it always was as the surrounding valleys and mountains were unaffected. In fact, we have recently cleared surrounding brush and trees behind the cabin to make the view even better!

We have a second cabin in the Gatlinburg area close to a lot of outdoor activities including a zip line! Visit our VRBO listing 1114625 Chubby's Webb Creek Hideaway!

For those of you who have stayed with us before and are curious about the name change - Chubby was our best buddy- our little Boston Terrier who loved his time in the mountains. The Smokies were his favorite getaway ( and ours), and we hope it is yours too. We hope you stay with us soon and we are sure you won't be disappointed. Come visit, relax and enjoy all the Smokies have to offer!

About Doug and Linda Selkirk

We love this part of the country! We have been visiting this area for over 20 years and for the last 10 have talked about retiring here. We lost our first cabin in the fire of 2016. But Chubby's Sleepy Bear Retreat survived and we spent most of 2017 renovating and repairing some fire damage. We also bought land on the next mountain over (about a quarter mile away) and in a few short years we plan to build our permanent home and become full time residents of the Smoky Mountain area. We have adult children and a young grandchild we hope will fall in love with this area too and visit us often! We added the name "Chubby to our cabin in remembrance of our beloved Boston Terrier who loved to come and visit in Tennessee.

Doug and Linda Selkirk purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Doug and Linda Selkirk chose Sevierville

When we first visited this area almost 20 years ago we stayed in a cabin on the same mountain ridge in Eagle Crest. We loved the views and the proximity to everything. So when we started looking for a cabin we looked in several nice areas but something kept calling us back to this mountain ridge. When we walked out onto the deck and looked at the view we knew we had found a great cabin. We decided to turn it into the beautiful rustic retreat we knew it could be and hope we have succeeded. We want our guests to truly feel like they are "getting away from it all" when they stay at our cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

An amazing view of the sunset over Bluff Mountain, the beautiful twinkling lights of downtown Sevierville at night, the fireworks from Dollywood, being close to everything but not feeling closed in! A very quiet and peaceful setting.

Gorgeous views, great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect getaway for our family of four! Great location- we were able to spend time in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevierville...each about 15 minutes away! The hot tub was such a treat after spending time in the snow. The view is breathtaking as well. So glad we came, looking forward to next time!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great time at the cabin. Usually I tell people I am sorry the weather wasn't better for their trip but it sounds like you enjoyed having some snow! I am always talking about the fantastic view - but I guess I am not the only one who finds it wonderful. Please come back and visit us soon!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. We completely remodeled the cabin in the last 6 months and am glad you found it well supplied and clean. Our housekeeping crew works hard to make sure the cabin is ready for our guests! I agree that having the hot tub for relaxing and then being able to sit by the fire pit while enjoying the view is the best part - time well spent!

We loved the little extra touches you have with your cabin - from the extra keurigs to the gas fire pit on the deck.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

There was quite a bit of construction going to the cabin, but nothing that hindered our stay. The cabin was beautiful and immaculately clean. We enjoyed the arcade games and the hot tub was great after a long day. This cabin has everything you need to cook and enjoy a meal at “home”. Thank you for letting us stay!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Yes there is construction going on in the area but most of the cabins under construction near ours will be finished very soon. And, once you enter the cabin you can't hear the construction and the workers are usually finished quite early in the day. We are grateful that the community is coming back stronger than ever! We hope you get a chance to come back again.

Perfect Long Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at this cabin! Sleepy Bear Retreat has every amenity you could ask for in a cabin rental. The cabin was immaculate and the furniture and decor were very comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and small appliances and had everything we needed to cook several meals.

The view from the back porch was amazing, especially at night from the hot tub and fire pit.

This was our first visit to Sleepy Bear Retreat and will not be our last. We had such a wonderful time and will definitely return.
