We have both moved here from Virginia & Rhode Island. Both of us have traveled and been in Property Management for years. We finally found this little piece of Heaven.
Tom purchased this bungalow in 2013
We choose this property after visiting the area for many years.
We chose this property for the outstanding mountain view and the privacy in our gated community and of course the wildlife.
This was a great place to stay and different than any other cabin I've stayed in. The close proximity to a less trafficked entrance to the National Park was great, and the view from the sleeping porch is as good or better in real life than the pictures. We didn't realize that the cabin is actually shared with the owners (one building, 2 separate living quarters) and we could at times hear them like one would hear someone in a (quiet) hotel. We never heard them from around 8pm to 10am, though, so it wasn't a big deal, just something to be aware of. They were very nice when we saw them as we were coming or going and the views in and out of the bungalow were private. The other thing to mention is that, as the description says, there is no full kitchen. Again, not a huge deal, but it's definitely a little work to cook a meal there, and we only did it once. The only sink is in the bathroom, but they provide a tub for washing any dishes you use. All in all, it was a very nice stay, and the sleeping porch is such a fun and unique experience. It is very well thought out and well-designed and as another reviewer said, the only other way to sleep like that is in a tent and without the amazing view. Loved waking up to a view of the mountains! Fun cabin to stay at!
My Fiancée and I stayed two nights in this unique little Bungalow. There is no where else other than staying in a tent where you can experience sleeping in the outdoors. It was always after sunset that we arrived for the evening but we were able to experience the beauty of the view when we woke up and didn't have to get out of bed to see it. Really neat little Bungalow. We will be coming back to experience the fall foliage and staying a couple of nights in this neat unique little Mountain Bungalow will be a part of our planning. Awesome experience!
Where to begin; again?! We stayed again this month and so enjoyed ourselves. The sleeping porch is divine! And, the fall foliage was still hanging around which we weren't sure if it would be. It was absolutely gorgeous! I can't say enough about the beauty of the area. And, Tom and Delores are just the absolute nicest people and are great hosts. I really enjoyed the stillness and quiet that this time of year brings in the mountains. Thanks again, Tom and Delores for a most memorable stay.
Tom, We came to this bungalow to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. We had a great time. The view was incredible and sleeping on the deck in the screened in porch was the highlight of the trip. We arrived and the fall leaves were changing for a beautiful view but the snow on Friday was gorgeous. We were sorry to have to leave the last day because of ice but it was worth it. We'll see you in the spring! Thanks, Terry and Donna
This is an awesome little hidden gem!! Delores and Tom are very nice people and made us feel very welcome. The views were spectacular from the screened in porch and the sitting room. The beds were comfortable, especially the heated mattress pad and electric blanket on the king sized bed on the screened in porch. It is close enough to Pigeon Forge, but far enough away that it is so peaceful and quite. We are already talking about a return trip in the spring and cannot wait to stay at this hidden gem again.
We so enjoyed our stay in the Mountain Bunaglow in October. The view was absolutely gorgeous. The bunaglow had everything that we needed and more. It was very clean and neat. We have stayed various places in the mountains, but this was by far the best. The sleeping porch was romantic and very peaceful.
The Smokey Mountain National Park Entrance is 1 mile from Bungalow, lots wildlife.
Things To Do in Wears Valley
Wears Valley is literally your gateway to the Tennessee Smokies! This is an unincorporated area between Pigeon Forge, one of the most active cities in East Tennessee, and Townsend, one of the quietest. If you crave some excitement and attractions, Pigeon Forge is just 15 minutes away, if it’s peace, solitude and the dignity of the mountains you’re after, Townsend is also just 15 minutes away!
And the immediate area offers plenty to see and do as well, the following list should be a good starting place to building your itinerary.
Places To Visit:
Gear up for the great outdoors at GSM Outfitters in Wears Valley. Camping, Fishing, Hiking, Kayaking gear, outdoor clothing, hiking snacks and trail foods, cold refreshments, hammocks and so much more. Specializing in outfitting the Smokies’ visitors at the most reasonable prices in the area.
Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster
A large surprise for most of us living here, not even that it exists but gives Dollywood a decent run for its money, The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is a newer attraction on Wears Valley Road and it’s been getting a lot of acclaim from locals and visitors alike. This is a thrilling 7-8 minute journey through the hills on a one or two-person coaster. There isn’t anything quite like this in the area, so be sure to check it out!
Wear Farm City Park
This is Pigeon Forge’s newest municipal park and it’s on the side of Wears Valley Road towards Pigeon Forge. This area has a playground, baseball fields, basketball courts, a large pavilion, snack complex, a proper football field and much more! You’ll barely even see much of it from the road, but you’ll be surprised how expansive it is once you get out there.
One of the most popular recreational riverbeds in East Tennessee, the Townsend Wye is a tradition for thousands of locals and visitors every year. The Wye is just a single river cutting through the National Park running alongside the main road of Townsend, but it’s just wide enough without needing to be too wide, and shallow enough for people to enjoy swimming, fishing, tubing, what have you! There are also plenty of good spots to enjoy a simple picnicl. Parking is free, but you need to expect parking spaces will fill up quickly during the Summer and most vacation periods outside of Winter. Shuttles may also be available for transport. Also, as the river has no lifeguard or safety regulation in place, exercise good judgment at all times.
Cades Cove is a valley offering a multitude of natural attractions for visitors coming through Townsend. Wildlife such as white-tailed deer, bears, coyotes, groundhogs, turkeys, raccoons, skunks, and just about every other type of animal you can find in the mountains. You can hike, bike, go horseback riding, go fishing, go on a nature shoot (photos of course) and even go camping in the backcountry. You can tour Cades Cove by foot, bike or motor vehicle and numerous hiking trails start in Cades Cove – like Abrams Falls, Thunderhead Mountain, Rocky Top (as in THE Rocky Top that made the song) and the Cades Cove Nature Trail. There are many historic sites like the John Oliver Cabin, the Primitive Baptist Church and the Becky Cable House. Cades Cove is history, nature and potentially raw excitement and fun on one spot. See more on Cades Cove at www.cadescove.net.
Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center
Probably the finest museum capturing all the nature, beauty and spirit of Southern Appalachia you will ever see, the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center is a nonprofit organization dedicating to preserving the history and culture of the Tennessee man from Native American to European Pioneer and on.
