Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 16

A 3,000-square-foot, 3-story log home, Apple Bear Lodge can sleep up to 16 people. But sleep may be the last thing on your mind once you take note of all the lodge’s amenities, which include a hot tub, a pool table, air hockey, foosball, and free WiFi.

Set atop a steep driveway, Apple Bear Lodge looks out over woodlands toward the Great Smoky Mountains. Its 2 covered rear decks, which span the width of the home, offer plenty of space for the whole group to watch the trees sway in the breeze as to warblers and thrushes sing in the sunshine. When you’re not kicking back on the deck rocking chairs, you can sit at the main deck’s patio table with a drink and a snack. And for a true treat, luxuriate in the lower deck’s hot tub, especially at night: The combination of the steamy jets of water, the star-studded sky, and the serenading of owls and crickets is an experience you’ll long remember.

You’ll find plenty more to do inside. The downstairs game room has something to keep every member of your group entertained for hours. Shoot some pool at the full-size billiard table, challenge friends to a game of foosball or the kids to an air-hockey match, play cards at the pub table, or stretch out on the plush couches and watch a movie on the 60” flat-screen TV. On chilly winter days, the fireplace will keep the space toasty, and the wet bar ensures that no one will go thirsty.

The living room is another inviting gathering spot. It too has a fireplace, whose golden glow will add to the luster of the wood-planked walls, floor, and ceiling. Stretch out on the leather sofa to watch the big game on the flat-screen TV, or curl up in one of the plush armchairs with your tablet and take advantage of the free WiFi. If you’re looking for a quiet spot to read or chat, head to the upstairs sitting area, which like the rest of Apple Bear Lodge is furnished in comfortable, quietly elegant fashion.

The dining area can seat 12 people: 8 at the lengthy dining table and another 4 at the adjacent breakfast bar. The kids will probably love eating “by themselves” at the breakfast bar while the adults linger at the table.

If you enjoy cooking, you’ll love Apple Bear Lodge’s large, open kitchen, with its stainless-steel appliances, ample cookware and tableware, and generous storage and counter space. Even if you don’t plan to cook much, you’ll appreciate having a coffee maker for your morning cup, a microwave to heat up restaurant leftovers, a blender for mixing margaritas, and a fridge for keeping juice boxes cold.

Each of the lodge’s 4 bedrooms has its own bathroom with both a tub and a shower. The 2 upstairs bedrooms and the bedroom on the main floor each feature a king-size bed; the 4th bedroom, downstairs, has queen-size bunk beds. In addition, the upstairs sitting area has bunk beds and a sofa that opens into a queen-size bed; the living room sofa opens into a queen-size bed as well. The variety of sleeping areas makes Apple Bear Lodge an ideal option for a family reunion, a wedding party, or several families vacationing together.

Not only is there plenty of fun to be had at Apple Bear Lodge, but there’s also loads to see and do just minutes away. You can drive to downtown Gatlinburg in less than 10 minutes; once there, visit the Guinness World Records Museum, play mini golf, enjoy thrill rides, or ride the tram up to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. The wildlife, wildflowers, and waterfalls of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are less than 15 minutes from the cabin, and Pigeon Forge’s attractions, including Dollywood, are less than a half-hour away.

Conveniently located, fabulously spacious, packed with amenities: Apple Bear Lodge really does have it all. So book your stay today, and get ready for what might be your best vacation yet!

Myrtle Beach in the Mountains

  • 3 of 5

The area is fun and offers something for everyone. From challenging hikes with impressive mountain views to A downtown that feels more like the midway at the county fair. The property is ideally situated for easy access to all of these amenities. With that being said, we would probably not rent this place again mainly because of the driveway; it is way too steep and long and I grew up in a mountain community. Some items in the house that could use some attention: uncomfortable "saggy" mattresses (and no mattress covers); some game equipment needs repair; outside "park style" grill not really ideal for our family that likes to cook out a lot- This could be some kind of requirement as it was the only type of grill we saw on our many walks around the neighborhood.; Amount of towels supplied wasn't enough especially since there is a hot tub (increased towel use) and there was no bath mat supplied so a towel had to be substituted (decreased amount of towels).

Wonderful Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We went here with our best friends and it was breath taking! The Cabin was huge, way bigger than we expected and had everything you could imagine. We loved every minuet we had here and enjoyed the cute little town below along with the surrounding towns. So much to see and do and enjoy. The only thing that was a bummer, is the driveway. It's extremely steep and if it's rain or snowing, it's extremely hard to get up the hill, some nights were impossible so we had to park below and walk up. Other than that, the kitchen is huge, the rooms are fantastic! The bathroom are excellent, and with the bottom floor being a game room was so fantastic! A little bit of everything for everyone. <3 Thank you again for such a memorable couples vacation!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin! We had plenty of space to spread out, and plenty of sleeping space for everyone.

Everything was in great order upon our arrival. Spacious living areas and large bedrooms. The kids and adults loved the game room and its large tv. We will definitely look to rent this cabin again next time we are in Gatlinburg.
