About the property

Beautiful log cabin home located in the private resort at Black Bear Falls

Whatever your dream getaway—a ski trip with other couples, a kid-oriented vacation with the extended family, a chance to catch up with old friends in a mellow setting—Summit Lodge will make a great home base.

The 5-bedroom log cabin is just a 5-minute drive from the restaurants and amusements of downtown Gatlinburg, and it’s nearly as close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area, and the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop. But you’ll also find plenty to keep everyone happily occupied right on its premises.

For instance, the downstairs game room has a billiard table, so you can challenge friends to a game without having to drive to a bar. If pool’s not your thing, station yourself at one of the three classic arcade games—Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man, and Out Run. Show the kids in your group how we amused ourselves before the internet! And if even helping Ms. Pac-Man avoid ghosts is too strenuous for you (understandable after a day spent biking, snowboarding, or shopping the nearby outlets), stretch out on the game room’s plush sofa and watch a movie on the 55” HDTV. with movie theater surround sound.

Or head out onto one of Summit Lodge’s 2 rear decks and revel in the glorious vistas. Spanning the width of the 2,700-square-foot cabin and looking out onto the Great Smoky Mountains, they’re furnished with plenty of comfortable rockers. Sip your morning coffee while chickadees greet the day with a song; reminisce with family and friends in the pink-tinged glow of sunset; come out late at night after the little ones are in bed for a romantic drink in the moonlight.

For the ultimate in pampering, step into the lower deck’s 7 person hot tub. As if the massaging jets of steamy water weren’t relaxing enough, you can listen to the breeze rustle through the trees and maybe even spy eagles soaring through the sky as you soak… bliss!

A double-height wall of windows along Summit Lodge’s living/dining area lets you admire the mountain vistas even while indoors. In winter the gas fireplace makes space an especially welcoming spot, though any time of year is a good one for stretching out on the living room sofa with a book or gathering the gang to watch a favorite show on the 50” HDTV.

The dining table seats 12 people comfortably; smaller groups can sit at the adjacent breakfast bar. And though you might intend to eat most of your meals in one of the many nearby restaurants, once you see the fully equipped kitchen (and the stunning view from the dining area) you might change your mind. Appliances, cookware, tableware - the kitchen has it all. There’s a dishwasher too, because why scrub dishes when you can be shooting pool or hiking in the mountains?

Each of Summit Lodge’s 5 bedrooms has its own bathroom, a TV, plenty of storage, and a view you’ll love waking up to. The most private of the bedrooms makes up the entire loft level and includes a king-size bed. Two additional master bedrooms, each with its own king-size bed, are just off the living room main floor.

Downstairs, on either side of the game room, are the remaining 2 bedrooms. Each of these rooms has 2 queen-size beds, making them perfect if a number of kids are in your group—they’ll feel as if they’re at sleep-away camp! What’s more, the sofas in the game room and the living area convert into beds for 2, accommodating up to 4 more guests.

Because Summit Lodge is located in the 43-acre Black Bear Falls Log Home Community, you can take advantage of the resort’s 2 heated swimming pools, one of which is a kiddie pool, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. But even when the pools are closed, you can enjoy a vacation that’s as action-packed or as laid-back as you like.

Why Gary Davis or Lynn Davis chose Black Bear Falls

We have always loved going to the Smoky Mountains when we were younger and when we had the opportunity to buy there was no doubt this is where we wanted to be. The view is breathtaking and we love the area and so close to Gatlinburg. Black Bear Falls is a very well maintained resort and is in a private setting that everyone will fall in love with. This cabin is very special to us and have shared wonderful memories with family and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

The view is spectacular and the deck goes all the way across the front that gives a view to three mountain peaks. The cabin has upstairs for dining and watching your favorite movie and the game room downstairs for playing pool and listening to some music on surround sound. The eight person hot tub is on lower level with great views and lounging.

Beautiful view and lovely accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Summit Lodge. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. We traveled to visit Gatlinburg to celebrate my son’s 16th birthday with his friends. They had a ball and loved having the awesome basement and game room all to themselves while the adiults enjoyed shutting the basement door and the resulting peace and quiet upstairs. The cabin was immaculately appointed and had all we could ask for and more. Highly recommend!

Beautiful place to stay! Will definitely come back!

Wonderful property to stay at! Close to all the nearest attractions, but far enough out to escape the busyness of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We will definitely come back to this cabin in the future! Great and courteous owners to deal with!

This home has AWESOME breathtaking views from every room! We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets at night from the 7 person hot tub. This home has so many wonderful amenities. Having a huge gas grill was a big hit. Crowded weekend so we cooked out and had everything we needed from the fully stocked kitchen. We also enjoyed being able to all sit around the big family table that sits 12! The home décor is so adorable and beds/rooms so comfy and cozy. Loved the big fireplace, so relaxing! By far our favorite place and the owners Gary and Lyn are so wonderful to work with and respond in minutes with any questions. The pool table and games kept Caron busy and loving the visit! The cabin is so close to everything including a big grocery store which came in handy. You are able to zip downtown and back in no time. Perfect location! Thank you Gary and Lyn we hope to be back again for sure! I miss the view already! Hard to leave this place.
