Overview

Wears Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Little Bear Cottage is a charming, 2 story home, reminiscent of a turn-of-the-century, Appalachian homestead, centrally located on a lovely wooded lot in scenic Wears Valley. It features easy access and a paved driveway, making coming and going a pleasure, year round. It also features 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a Jacuzzi tub, a large wrap around deck with covered hot tub, high speed internet, cable TV, and real wood burning fireplace. If you have children, you will undoubtedly appreciate the large, shady property, located on a quiet cul-de-sac.

Whether you choose to immerse yourself in a wide variety of activities in town, or just relax at the cabin, there just never seems to be enough time! We are just a short drive from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Townsend. We are within walking distance of local shops and restaurants, not to mention just a few miles from the Foothills Parkway and within 10 miles of the back entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Enjoy a scenic drive to historic Cades Cove, or take in the breath taking view from Clingmans Dome. Hop a ride on the trolley to cruise the Parkway, or spend the day at famous Dollywood. Add to that bicycling, river rafting, fishing, hiking, restaurants, theaters, museums, gift shops, and outlet malls. The list is endless! Contact us for more information about this amazing location in East Tennessee.

About Melinda Dix

Bruce and I have been coming to this area for 30+ years, starting out in a tent, then to a pop-up camper. In fact, this is where we spent our honeymoon! All of our children's memories revolve around these camping trips and vacations. Now that they are grown, with children of their own, they come here to make their own memories. What I find heart warming is that they do not consider the vacation over until they have gone to all the places that they went to as children! We never tire of making the drive from Florida, and always look forward to the peace we feel as we turn onto our hill leading to Little Bear Cottage.

Melinda Dix purchased this house in 2000

Why Melinda Dix chose Wears Valley

We chose to buy in this area because of the memories and the tradition of spending our vacations here. This area has enough attractions for all ages to keep busy, and at the same time, offers activities that are free. You can't put a price on a peaceful walk through the woods, or a picnic by a stream.

What makes this house unique

One of the benefits of staying at our property is the large yard. Many guests with children like the security of knowing the kids are not going to fall off a mountain when playing. We are also within walking distance of so many local shops, and restaurants. During the fall we are across the street from the Octoberfest activities and not far from the local farmers market.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Went for a get-a-way weekend and was very pleased! Loved that we didn't have to take a steep road to get to the cabin, and it was close to attractions. Also, Melinda was great to work with! I would definitely recommend this cabin! Great for couples!

Perfect Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cabin! Close to the attractions without being in the middle of the traffic mayhem, and not so far off the beaten path that you have to drive on twisty mountain roads after dark! Thank you for making your cabin available!

wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here it was close to most things.(like Cades Cove, Tremont shopping and stores for food. A cool very close back away into the park at metcalf bottoms. We like that the driveway was flat and didn't have to drive on the mountain roads. The view was amazing. Melinda the own was so sweet and helpful. she was like talking to a friend. It's great for a family. Hot tub was great after a long hike in those wonderful Smokey Mountains.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. Not many people know about the short cut into the back entrance to the Park. I always try to remember to let my guests know. In the winter months "How steep is your driveway?" is the number 1 question!

Love Little Bear Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your Pigeon Forge home with us. We loved the spaciouness of the home and the layout. I sure hope that the next time we are able to get away for a long weekend that your cabin will be available again for us to rent. I have been searching for a cabin that we can use on a regular basis without having to hunt for hours for one that is available. I loved the bif kitchen table along with the layout of the floor for the kitchen, dining area and living room. The bedrooms were very comfortable too. Loved the hot tub!! We liked that this was a level lot and so easy to get to when driving! I will definetly recommend your cabin to others!!

Thanks again for everything!!

Little Bear

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time spent at Litte Bear Cabin! It was furnished beautifully with "Bear's" all over, and very comfortable. We had everything we needed, very clean and well maintained, we just wish we had more time here.. It is located in a Prime location, convent to Cade's Cove, Wears Valley, Townsend, and Pigeon Forge. The Hot Tub was great too! We would highly recommend this Cabin. We stayed with another couple and it was perfect. Melinda was a great Host too, answering any questions we had about places to eat or things to do! We'd love to stay again! :-)

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect location! We loved the way that it was decorated and when you first walk in the door you smell the fireplace. The hot tub was also great & relaxing, it is covered so we were able to enjoy it while listening to the rain. This is the perfect getaway!! Melinda was great with communication!! We will be back soon hopefully!!

The personalized thank you was great also!!
