A 3-bedroom cabin with an awe-inspiring view of the Great Smoky Mountains, Resting Bears is tailor-made for a rejuvenating, restorative getaway. Not only are the surroundings stunning and serene, but the cabin itself is a haven of calm and comfort. Every element of the home, from the outdoor hot tub to the deck’s fireplace to the great room’s wall of windows, encourages relaxation.
Located in Gatlinburg’s private Cobbly Nob neighborhood—itself set within a 1,000-acre resort—Resting Bears has a back deck that stretches the width of the house and looks out over woodlands toward the Smoky Mountains. Enjoy your morning coffee while kicking back on one of the rocking chairs or sprawled out on a chaise; there’s no better way to start the day. At one end of the deck, a screened enclosure houses a hot tub, where you can luxuriate among the steamy bubbles without the intrusion of insects. The other end of the deck features both a fireplace (so that you can stargaze on chilly autumn evenings) and a ceiling fan (so that you can linger over an alfresco lunch even during the heat of the summer).
You don’t have to be on the deck to revel in the beauty surrounding Resting Bears. The great room’s wall of picture windows floods the space with sunlight and lets you gaze out at the mountains even as you stretch out on one of the leather sofas to watch TV, gather at the card table to play rummy, or sit back on the glider with your tablet to surf the web (Resting Bears has free WiFi). The wood-planked walls, the sloped and beamed ceiling, and the stone-surround fireplace are ideal complements to the majestic beauty on the other side of the windows.
In addition to the card table, which seats 4, the great room has a dining table that can accommodate 6 people. What with the elegant furnishings and the stunning mountain view, you might opt to eat many, if not most, of your meals in. You don’t have to rely on takeout, though; Resting Bears’ kitchen is equipped with appliances, cookware, and tableware galore. There’s even a dishwasher because nobody wants to scrub plates while on vacation.
Resting Bears’ 3 bedrooms can sleep up to 8 people, and there’s a full bathroom for each bedroom, which will make everyone’s morning routine stress-free. The spacious master bedroom includes a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, and a bathroom with a jetted tub. You’ll really appreciate its massaging jets when you return from a day of hiking, skiing, or exploring every inch of Dollywood.
The 2nd bedroom features a queen-size bed, another flat-panel TV, and perhaps best of all, doors that open directly onto the deck. You can slip out at night for a romantic drink in the moonlight or head out first thing in the morning to watch the sunrise without waking the others.
The 3rd bedroom sleeps up to 4 people in 2 sets of twin-size bunk beds. The kids will love this room: There’s plenty of space for them to spread out with their games and toys, and as with the other bedrooms, there’s a flat-screen TV.
When you stay at Resting Bears between Memorial Day and Labor Day, you’ll have
free access to Cobbly Nob’s 3 pool areas. What’s more, at the foot of the resort is the award-winning Bent Creek Golf Course, designed by legendary golfer Gary Player. Just slightly farther afield are the restaurants, shops, and amusements of downtown Gatlinburg; the Great Smoky Mountains National Park; and the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and shops.
No matter how you spend your days, you’ll relish returning to the pleasures of Resting Bears. Experience its calm and beauty for yourself: Make your reservation today!

Great cabin, wonderful view, spacious, awesome hot tub and deck. Only wish we had more hot water.
Most everything was great. Just need more hot water and water pressure in master bath. Would rent here again.

Cozy Cabin with a Great View
We really enjoyed our stay at Resting Bears! The beds were comfortable, the living room was cozy and the kids really enjoyed the bunk room. Our only disappointment was that the outdoor fireplace is gas and didn't work. Otherwise it was a fantastic cabin and we would love to return again next year. Keep an eye out for bears! A mama and three babies were close by taking a curious peek at us as we unloaded our car.
We are pleased to hear you really enjoyed our stay at Resting Bears! Thank you for staying with us.
The cabin and view was so beautiful. My family had the best time. I wish we had a few more days there. Best vacation!!
We are pleased to hear your family had a great time at Resting Bears. Thank you for staying with us.
Beautiful cabin and view, unfortunately there were lots of things not working.
The view can't be beat and the cabin is adorable, however it was poorly cleaned (covered in cob webs and stains on the sheets) and half the stuff around the cabin didn't work. The internet didn't work, the outdoor fireplace didn't work, the cover was broken on the hot tub, and the hot water didn't work in one of the bathrooms and one of the sinks in another bathroom. In addition, when I called about these things, nothing was done about them or even offered to be fixed or given any compensation for the many issues. Had a great vacation because of the company and enjoyed the view but not happy with the issues and lack of cleanliness and lack of responsiveness from the management.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us. I'm so sorry your vacation was anything less than perfect. We have addressed the housekeeping issues you described. A member of our Customer Service team will reach out to you regarding your stay.
