'The Bashful Bear' offers panoramic views of the Smokies from one of the most majestic peaks in Sherwood Forest. It is convenient to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area attractions, restaurants and shopping. As you enter the warm, fully furnished lodge, on the main level you'll find a beautiful stacked stone fireplace flanked by a wall of windows. Enjoy the spectacular views while rocking on the deck or relaxing in the hot tub. Just off the fully equipped gourmet kitchen is a master bedroom with a king size bed, TV and large bathroom with a walk-in tiled shower. A short elevator ride up to the loft reveals a second master bedroom with king bed, TV, large bathroom, and huge Jacuzzi tub. Off this bedroom is a cozy game area with pool table, air hockey and foosball, and a loft deck with more fantastic views.
Ride the elevator down to the lower level to enjoy another big-screen TV and 3 other bedrooms (2 with king beds and 1 with queen-over-queen bunk beds), all with their own private bath. Here you'll find another fireplace and deck to reap those peaceful moments in your rocking chair. One more elevator ride down to the lowest level offers a wet bar, 1 more bedroom with private bath and Jacuzzi tub, and the beautiful home theater equipped with your own personal reclining theater chair! Visit with friends and family in front of another fireplace here, or enjoy the bar and deck. This cabin is sure to help you and your group relax, laugh, and enjoy a wonderful vacation at 'The Bashful Bear!'
Welcome to our cabin high atop the mountain. Sandra and I, plus our kids and Ginger our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever want you to have a great time just as we do when we get the chance to stay in our cabin. We moved from the Twin Cities and settled down in a suburb of Tampa, Florida, but always loved the beauty of the Smoky Mountains as we drove between Florida and Minnesota. We always said that when we could get a place to share with our family and friends we would. We also wanted it to be a place that we could share with others. So please enjoy your stay and hope you feel refreshed and rejuvenated like we do.
SkyView "Bashful Bear" purchased this cabin in 2008
There were 18 of us here this week from ages 3 to 89! We came from Seattle, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and North Carolina. We had a great time.
The cabin was awesome with plenty of room. Morning coffee on the deck, watching the Smokies, was a great way to start our days. The week was filled with fun, food and laughter. Our families got to reunite and make more memories together. We are already making plans for our return!
Very Nice ----beautiful view. A little strange with no in door stairs but actually became a positive not having to worry about the little ones falling.
Best Part check in already done! ---did not have to wait for paperwork. Drove straight into the cabin which was a huge plus for me.
Our family of 22 (14 adults, 3 teens and 5 children) had a fun-filled vacation at this gorgeous mountain cabin. We all fit comfortably in our separate bedrooms and had ample room to congregate on the 3rd floor making full use of the living room/dining room area and the great decks. The game room was a pleasant surprise with pool table, shuffleboard, a soccer table and arcade video game. We were very happy that there was enough table & counter space in the dining area to accommodate all 22 of us! The location near the Smokey Mountain National park was perfect for us and the view from the decks was unbelievable. The only suggestion for improvement that I have is for them to hire a better cleaning service. It was surface cleaned and there was plenty of clean linen but it needs a good thorough cleaning. I do recommend the place and would come back again.
There are a lot of houses being built around this home. The construction traffic and the trucks blocking access was really bad. Also we were told the home had new carpet..... however - the entire second floor smelled like dog urine and clearly there was an animal in the home - there were claw marks on every door frame on each level. Also - I would have thought for the amount per week the house would have been in better shape. The first and second floor bathrooms were really run down (specifically mold in the showers - and a really poor attempt to caulk over the mold). Also every pull out couch had mouse poo in them. Would have been nice if they cleaned the couches first (a lot of food wrappers under the furniture - hence the mice problems).
Stayed 6 nights over the holidays and it was fantastic. The cabin is beautiful and everything worked great and was clean. The management company responded promptly to the few requests we had. Had 28 people in the cabin and there was plenty of room and everyone had a great time. Definately will return!!
We had a large group with a wide age range. We thoroughly enjoyed the game room on the top floor. We enjoyed the hot tub as well. My friend and I were responsible for the meals for this group of 16 and found the kitchen quite adequate. This is a great place for a family reunion. People went fishing, hiking, shopping and some just relaxed. Of course, UT beat GA and that was a highlight of the weekend! We never felt crowded and there was plenty of privacy. There is also a theater, but we never used it. Too many other fun activities!
We had a family wedding AT cabin on one of the decks with a gorgeous mountain view background. 23 people stayed the weekend with ample room. Everything as clean & organized as promised. Very relaxed atmosphere. Bedrooms/Bathrooms were spectacular. Just minutes from all major Pigeon Forge attractions. Working with Skyview Rentals was a most pleasant experience. Every question was answered promptly and they even helped us with logistics of having folks come in at various times over the weekend. Definitely on our list of places to gather as family or for a multi-couples weekend getaway.
