About Barbara Murray

We love the Smokies! We came to Gatlinburg on our honeymoon and have come several times every year since. We have the most incredible memories of our times in the Smokies. When we had the opportunity to purchase a top quality cabin in the best resort in Gatlinburg we were thrilled. We want to give other families the opportunity to grow closer and create fantastic experiences and memories as we have on our vacations in the Smokies.

Barbara Murray purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Barbara Murray chose Black Bear Falls

To enjoy the beauty of Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains with our family and to allow other families to enjoy time together, as we do.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is in downtown Gatlinburg, but just far enough off of the beaten path to give you the feel of being away from it all. The views at the cabin are simply amazing. You are looking at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We have done our best to make our cabin feel like Home away from Home, unlike many of the rental cabins in the county. We added the little extra amenities to enhance your stay. We are proud of the cleanliness of our cabin and have gone the extra mile to insure it is well maintained.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Barbara, I absolutely loved your cabin. It was so beautiful and I loved your decor. We all

enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and gazing at the mountains. What a

beautiful view! Even at night, the lights from the other cabins reminded me of

Christmas. I hope we are able to stay again sometime. Thank you for sharing

such a wonderful home. Priscilla B.

Amazing view & beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just stayed at Barbara's beautiful cabin last week. We had such a wonderful time on our first visit to Gatlinburg. This cabin is perfectly located just a few miles outside of Gatlinburg, in the mountains. The view from the rear decks are truly amazing, we couldn't get over how pretty the setting was. It is an easy drive into the neighborhood & up the roads to the house. It was important for me not to have to navigate really windy or hilly roads to reach the cabin. We had no problems whatsoever. The cabin is very beautifully decorated with three king master suites, one on each level. The hot tub is perfectly placed to enjoy the amazing views. We found everything to be in good working order and had no problems. We loved the grill and cooked out often during our stay, but we also enjoyed being close enough to Gatlinburg to dine out several times as well. We found all the beds to be very comfortable and the cabin is very clean. We enjoyed an easy two hour ride to Asheville one day, to visit the Biltmore! We also did ziplining, white water rafting and horse back riding, all close to the cabin. Plus we were an easy drive to the Smoky Mountains, which we toured a few times. We enjoyed Clingman's Dome & Cades Cove loop road the best. We highly recommend this cabin and hope to come back again! It was like a home away from home! Thanks Barbara!

Definitely will be back to stay again!!
