Be among the first to stay in the Dancin' Bear Log Cabin! Doors open May 15, 2008. This traditional log cabin is perched upon 13 acres of lovely mountainside property. You will want to spend hours just hiking and exploring this tranquil wooded property. Across the street is a huge U.S. Forestry Service Tract for unlimited adventure.
This traditional log cabin was built with hand hewn timbers; which were saw cut only for window and door openings. You have to see this log cabin in person to fully appreciate the old world craftsmanship. The traditional construction includes a stone stacked fireplace and hardwood floors throughout the cabin; updated with a wall mounted LG Flat Screen Television displaying 150 stations and many other modern conveniences.

We have put a lot of time, thought and energy into making this log cabin the ideal destination for a memorable vacation in the Smokies!
