Bear Creek Haven
Location Details: Gatlinburg
Starting at: $123
Bedrooms: 1 Bathrooms: 1 Half Bathrooms: 0 Sleeps: 4
Bear Creek Haven is the most charming old time Gatlinburg cottage! It’s hard to find these classic properties anymore, with it being located on a little creek near downtown. And of course, you must walk up a trail of steppingstones to access the sweet cottage! After a long day of hiking in the national park or shopping on the parkway, sit back and enjoy the sounds of birds and rushing waters from the outdoor hot tub. This property shares a courtyard with our other cabins called Timeless Treasures and Storybook Romance, so this spot is perfect for a multi-family trip or couple’s getaway. It is within walking distance of town and a trolley stop but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
You’ll enter the home through the fully stocked kitchen (it also has a washer/dryer), and then turn the corner to enter the cozy living room! On those chilly autumn and winter days, brew a cup of coffee or cider and cozy up around the stone hearth of the gas fireplace. This is the most perfect living room to curl up with a book, listen to the rain, and enjoy the simpler times! In the event you are not a fan of simpler times, there’s also a TV and Wi-Fi. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room. The bedroom has a king sized-bed and there is a full bathroom in the cottage, as well as a jacuzzi tub.
Enjoy the screened in deck by dipping in the hot tub, or just get a glass of sweet tea, sit back in a rocking chair, and enjoy the sweet Southern sounds of Gatlinburg in your little slice of paradise.
This property is smoke free.

What people are saying about this property
-How is the drive to this cabin?
The drive to this cabin is very easy and flat.
-How close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is this cabin?
This cabin is 6 miles from the parkway of Pigeon Forge and less than half a mile from the parkway of Gatlinburg.
-How many vehicles will fit in the driveway?
We highly recommend bringing only one vehicle
-Do I need to bring extra toilet paper, trash bags, paper towels, soap, etc?
YES… We provide 1 roll of toilet paper per restroom, one trash bag per trash can, 1 roll of paper towels in the kitchen, 1 small bar of soap per sink. You are responsible for bringing your own extras. We also provide 4 towels and 2 wash clothes per F/Q/K bed, 2 towels and 1 wash cloth per twin bed, and 1 kitchen set (1 hand towel, 1 washcloth, starter kit of dish detergent). We do not provide shampoo, conditioner, lotions, laundry detergent, coffee or coffee filters, salt and pepper, charcoal for grills, daily maid service or flashlights/candles/matches (too often these items were taken home by guests so we stopped providing them).
-Is this cabin dog friendly?
Yes… We charge $75 per dog, up to 2 dogs. No more than 2 dogs are permitted. The dog(s) must not be left alone in the cabin unless they are in a crate. We charge accordingly for damage done by dogs such as scratches and chew marks, and for extra cleaning due to shedding in beds, soiled carpet/rugs and fecal matter left behind. Do not let your dog(s) sleep in beds or relieve itself inside the cabin.
-Is there another cabin nearby, in case more family wants to join?
Yes, Timeless Treasures and Storybook Romance share the same courtyard with Bear Creek Haven.
-Can I use the fireplace year round?
No. Local fire codes restrict the use of fireplaces April through August and we take this very seriously.
-Will I encounter wildlife?
Possibly. Black bears are attracted to food and are very curious and destructive, so DO NOT leave food in your vehicles or unaccompanied food on decks and porches and grills. If your cabin does not have a bear proof trash can, please call us for trash pick up.
And remember, you are surrounded by flourishing nature and a national wildlife reserve, so it’s not unusual for bugs to get into your cabin. We do a very good job of spotting and cleaning bugs before your arrival, but we cannot guarantee they won’t return, just as you can’t prevent 100% of bugs from entering your own home. Please be respectful of the fact that we don’t have total control over nature.
-Will the hot tub be clean for my arrival?
Absolutely. In fact the water may still need time to heat up on the day of your arrival. Just keep the cover on the hot tub and turn on the jets, as this will heat the hot tub quicker. To keep your hot tub clean for the length of your stay, keep the cover on the hot tub when not using it and rinse off your skin in the shower before entering the hot tub. Unwashed skin will dirty a hot tub quickly, and we only drain & clean the hot tubs after check-out. If there is sediment in your hot tub upon check-in, it is because your cabin’s water comes from a well.

Should you have to cancel your reservation at any point, for any reason, you will lose what you’ve paid up to that point. No exceptions, since the cancellation policy is offered at booking. By not purchasing the VSG, you will accept that you forfeit all monies paid if you have to cancel your reservation.

For cancellations made inside of 60 or 15 day time frame, when the cancellation policy has expired, you will be allowed to reschedule your stay in that same property within 6 months, but no monies will be refunded. After the 6 months all monies are forfeited.
Without the Vacay Stay Guarantee, absolutely no refunds.
Absolutely no refunds for early departures for any reason including but not limited to: weather, road conditions or family emergencies. We are not responsible for such occurrences and will therefore not refund money because of them.
