LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Less than 4 miles from Light #8 in Pigeon Forge (close to Dollywood, the new LeConte Event Center and The Island).

VIEW! VIEW! VIEW! Check out our spectacular panoramic view including Mt. LeConte - third highest peak in the Smokies!

Whether you are looking to get away from it all or want the excitement of Dollywood, Splash Country and all that the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg areas have to offer, Bear Haven is where you'll want to stay. It offers the peace and tranquility of the mountains and the convenience of being just minutes away from the Pigeon Forge Parkway.

Kick back and relax on our large screened deck. It’s well furnished with rocking chairs and a picnic table and the panoramic view of the Smokies can’t be beat. From English Mountain to Mt.

Meal time will be a pleasure. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare anything from a light snack to a full meal. If grilling is more to your liking, the gas grill is ready and waiting just outside the screened deck.

When you are ready to head out for the day, it is an easy four mile drive back to the parkway and the many activities it has to offer – shopping, live shows, dinner shows, restaurants, go-karts, mini-golf - it's all close by.

About Peggy Hobson

My husband, Lonnie, and I vacationed in the Smokies for many years. It was always a dream of ours to own a cabin in Pigeon Forge and in 2005 we were able to make that dream come true. We have created many wonderful memories at Bear Haven with our adult children and their families and we are happy to be able to share this dream with you, too. We personally answer all inquiries for Bear Haven, and, in conjunction with our cleaning and maintenance company, we work hard to provide you with a wonderful and relaxing 'home away from home' for your next vacation.

Drop us an email or give us a call. We're always happy to hear from you!

Peggy Hobson purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Peggy Hobson chose Sevierville

The Pigeon Forge area offers such a wide variety of things to do. From hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with its awesome vistas, to visiting one of the many live shows, to shopping at any of the wonderful outlet stores in search of that great bargain we are always able to find something to keep us busy no matter what the season!

In the years before buying Bear Haven, we actually rented several cabins on our road. It was such a peaceful and quiet location yet so convenient to the Parkway and all the activities! When we finally decided to purchase a cabin we looked at dozens of cabins but always migrated back to this area. In the end, it was an easy decision - our hearts were here!

What makes this cabin unique

Relax, renew and refresh! What more can I say? The view of Mt. LeConte from our screened deck is absolutely awesome! No matter what the season the view is beautiful. In winter, there is a chance you will see the distant mountain tops covered in snow. Come spring and everything is budding out in the brightest of greens. Summertime reveals the mature deep greens of all the trees and in the fall they put on their brightest colors - rich reds, oranges, and golds!

And the best part is that all of this is just minutes from the Parkway so when you have recharged your spirits you can get back to all the activities in no time at all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your cabin. Best view of any cabin we've rented. Peggy, you do a great job in making your guest feel at home. You have not overlooked one detail. We would definately return when visiting Pigeon Forge again and would recommend Bear Haven to others. Sitting on the porch while it rained was so relaxing that we didn't even mind the wet weather.

Beautiful scenic views, great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Spring break with snow, rain and sunshine! Our Gatlinburg vacation encompassed a full range of weather and good times! The splendid scenic views from the wall of windows and wrap around deck allowed you to experience the beautiful Smoky Mountains. We cooked several meals in the cabin and found the kitchen well furnished. It was obvious that the owner put much thought in all the details from the well stocked kitchen to the number of board games provided in the game room. The gas grill and hot tub were also put to good use. We had plenty of room for parking our 3 vehicles. Our family of 7 had enough room to spread out in the cabin. It's only a short drive to Pigeon Forge. The road is steep and curvy, though. Be sure to carefully read the directions to the cabin if you are arriving after dark as we were. We all agreed that we would love to return for another fun vacation!

Best cabin ever!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was amazing!! The wrap around porch and the beautiful scenes were priceless. The Christmas decorations were still up and were the highlight of the trip! The whole family went and spent a majority of time by the fire playing board games. Everything was clean and had plenty of space! We will be back next year for sure!!

All the conveniences of home with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is so very well stocked with dishes, pans, spices and even recipes! This was a repeat stay for us and we enjoyed being there as much as the first time. The cabin was so nicely decorated for Fall. No other entertainment needed then to sit on the enclosed porch and watch the mountains!

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was wonderfully cozy, comfortable, clean and well stocked with a great floor plan and beautiful views. It was just remote enough while not too far from restaurants, grocery stores, the national park and many attractions. We took advantage of and enjoyed the screened patio, hot tub, fireplace, washer dryer, pool table and gas grill. We were out and about during the day then cooked dinner and relaxed at the cabin in the evening. There was plenty of cookware and dishes and it was nice that we didn't have to buy every little thing like salt, pepper, foil, coffee filters, etc. We had a great time. No complaints.

Close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Great location for day trips to Asheville to see the Biltmore Estate, to Cherokee, NC where you can visit the Indian reservation and Harrah's Casino and to Cataloochee Valley, NC to see the elk that have been reintroduced to the national park.
