LUXURY CABIN WITH ALL THE AMENITIES, POOLS, WI-FI

Pigeon Forge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5+ Baths (Sleeps 4-8)

Big Bear Lodge and Resort is minutes from the Parkway but built on a quiet peaceful bluff overlooking Pigeon Forge. Our 1,500 square foot duplex cabin is a great Smoky Mountain getaway not far from a variety of attractions including: the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Dollywood Theme Park, and the new Titanic exhibit. Also choose activities from white water rafting to a Zipline adventure. Step out nearby to a large selection of restaurants, outlet shopping malls including “5 Oaks”; a huge mall with 100’s of stores only minutes from the cabin. We are also just a half mile from the new Wear Farm City Park. At the park with be baseball/softball fields, playground and walkway. Many softball tournaments are schedule for the park. You can walk from the cabin to the park if you desire.

Inside the cabin, you’ll find three levels that are more like home than anyplace you’ve ever stayed: the main level, the second floor and the lower level walkout apartment or Studio Suite. On each level, we’ve added decorating touches throughout that you rarely find in any other vacation property. As an example, we’ve included classic fine art prints and local artist renditions of this beautiful location. We’ve also added lots of pillows, stuffed bears, and cozy throws. This cabin also features hardwood floors and leather furniture. Parking is available on both the main and lower levels of the cabin.

On the main level, relax near the huge stone fireplace with its nearby large flat screen TV housed in an armoire. For larger groups, the leather couch makes into a queen size bed. In the full kitchen, you’ll find everything you need to prepare a delicious home cooked meal, or you may opt to grill something on the large lower-level Studio Suite deck. Either way, you’ll be able to recharge your energies and enjoy being in a unique beautiful area of East Tennessee.

Just off the kitchen, you can enjoy a four person hot tub set in a large screened in porch. Enjoy the night air wafting through the screens while relaxing in the hot soothing water. A large half bath, along with a washer and dryer, is also located on this level.

On the second level, at the top of the stairs you will find a loft sitting area just outside the private master bedroom suite. This vaulted space overlooks the main floor. It includes a love seat, which may be converted into a twin bed. You’ll also find a large computer desk, books, reference materials, excellent lighting and a CD player.

Pass through the loft and you’ll be amazed at the size of the master bedroom suite with full bathroom and balcony. Each day you can view the beautiful Smoky Mountains from this suite. This balcony is perfect location for your morning coffee. The king size bed has multiple pillows, a coverlet and many throws should you need them. Relax with your own media choices by taking advantage of your own TV/DVD in this suite. Large chests of drawers are available for all your belongings.

The lower level Studio Suite is a separate apartment that is ideal when a larger group of travelers chooses Bears Retreat. This living space is perfect for another couple or children and comes equipped with a kitchenette that includes a microwave, coffee maker, sink and mini refrigerator. A recently added foosball table means fun for all! This level is accessed by a convenient stairway to the main living area and, if desired, a private outdoor entrance. This Studio Suite also opens to a large deck with gas grill and hi-top seating for four. You and your family or friends will love the extra space and tasteful décor of this Studio Suite that includes pictures and paintings of Smoky Mountain areas such as Cades Cove.

In this second living area, you’ll find another large stone gas fireplace. You can relax with a flat screen TV above the mantel. The burgundy leather couch opens into a queen size bed. Amenities include a full-size bathroom with shower and WHIRLPOOL TUB! The private bedroom in this suite includes a TV and CD player.

We (Jan and Bob Thelen) are from Lansing Michigan have been visiting the Smoky Mountains the past 30+ years.

Robert Thelen purchased this cabin in 2002

After visiting the area on many occasions we had an opportunity to purchase our duplex cabin. After looking at many cabins we felt Big Bear Lodge had the amenities we desired—close to all activities but still quite and peaceful. We purchased in 2002 when the resort was being developed. For eight years we worked with various rental management companies and were never satisfied with the services they provided. In February, 2012 we decided to rent through VRBO and HomeAway so we could have more control over the rental process and provide a better experience for our guest.

We were very impressed with the cabin. It was so clean, beautiful and so very roomy. I loved the hottub on the back screened in deck. My daughter had her very own space in the studio apartment on the lower deck. We also enjoyed using the indoor pool. This is a place that we will definitely be wanting to stay at again! I appreciate how kind Bob was in getting our reservation squared away so quickly. This was the best cabin we have ever rented!
Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I was pleased we were able to arrange your reservation quickly so you and your family could plan a last minute weekend getaway.

I knew your daughter would love the lower level studio apartment!
