If the prospect of driving up high, winding mountain roads to reach your cabin is keeping you from enjoying a Smoky Mountain vacation, Bear Nook is for you. The 2-bedroom log cabin in located on a level property in Wears Valley—among the mountains but not atop one. Set near the woods with a burbling creek in its backyard, Bear Nook is just minutes from downtown Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, among other local attractions.
With its burnished wood floor, planked walls, and vaulted ceiling, Bear Nook exudes rustic charm. But the pet-friendly home has plenty of luxuries too. It's roomy deck, for instance, is outfitted with a hot tub. It’s the perfect spot for listening to songbirds in the morning or owls at night. A pub table and a dining table for 2 let you enjoy alfresco meals or cocktails under the stars. And the kids will love the wooden deck swing—as will romantic couples once the little ones are tucked into bed.
Inside, the living area boasts a large flat-panel TV with cable and a DVD player and plenty of comfortable seating for everyone to gather together. Generous windows let in the sunshine and the sight of trees swaying in the breeze, while the hand-laid stone-surround gas fireplace will cast a welcoming glow when you return from skiing or snowboarding.
The loft’s game room is another inviting spot for hanging out. A full-size pool table takes center stage, but there’s also another flat-panel TV plus a video game system. Or you can simply stretch out on the sofa and take advantage of the free WiFi to surf the web—or take a nap under the gentle breeze of the ceiling fan.
One major advantage of vacationing in a home rather than a hotel is access to a private kitchen. Bear Nook’s kitchen is fully equipped with appliances both major and minor (including that all-important coffee maker and a blender for whipping up smoothies or daiquiris). There’s a wealth of cookware and tableware too—all you have to bring are food and an appetite! And let’s not forget the outdoor charcoal grill… mmm, barbecue!
Bear Nook has a bedroom and a bathroom on each floor, for maximum privacy. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, plenty of storage, and cabin-perfect furnishings. The master bedroom on the main floor does have one advantage: a whirlpool tub. Talk about luxury!
If you have additional guests staying, the living room sofa converts to a bed for 2, as does the futon in the game room, so that Bear Nook can sleep 8 people in all. For maximum convenience, the cabin has its own washer and dryer too.
And speaking of convenience, Bear Nook is just a short drive from the attractions of both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Among the must-sees in Pigeon Forge are Dollywood, the Titanic Museum Attraction, and Parrot Mountain & Gardens, where you can feed the brilliantly plumaged birds. Downtown Gatlinburg features an aquarium and the Guinness World Records Museum among its attractions. Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area offers skiing and snowboarding in winter, plus ice-skating and more year-round. And no visit to the area is complete without exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park—it’s the country’s most popular national park for good reason!
