For a comfortable log cabin with highspeed Wifi in a beautiful Smoky Mountain setting, you'll want to stay at "A Bear Encounter."

This gorgeous log cabin is located in between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, so not only is it loaded with all the modern conveniences you could want, it's in a super convenient location too!

In the cozy living room, curl up to watch your favorite shows and movies on the new TV equipped with a Roku device and Spectrum television, or take a nap with the gas log fireplace on during the cooler months. You can also cook a delicious meal in the fully stocked kitchen or using the charcoal grill to share in the dining area, or simply make some yummy snacks to take with you as you head out to play in the Smoky Mountains.

After a long, fun-filled day in the mountains, you'll love going back to A Bear Encounter to sleep in the cozy bedrooms. A Bear Encounter's spacious main suite with a private bathroom contains a king-sized log bed, a corner jetted tub, a stone fireplace, a TV with a Roku device and Spectrum television, and a sitting area, creating the perfect environment to enjoy a romantic mountain getaway. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and TV with Roku and Spectrum as well! There is another bathroom just outside of this bedroom for your convenience.

This cabin has it all when it comes to amenities. Soak in the cabin's hot tub throughout the year while enjoying the cabin's beautiful scenery. Feel your stress melt away as you plan the next day's adventures on the highspeed wifi internet. When you're ready for some more action, just head to the well-equipped game room for a fun-filled night with the foosball table, multiplayer arcade game, electronic dartboard and board games! There is also a TV with a Roku device and Spectrum TV in the gameroom. As of 2023 there is now a cozy futon in the game room than can sleep an extra 2 family members or friends. Then, as the stars come out, gather around the outdoor fire pit area to toast marshmallows and trade stories before turning in for the night.

For added convenience, this cabin also comes equipped with a washer and dryer! We just ask that our guests supply their own detergent

With such a prime location, you and your guests will enjoy easy access to downtown Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and their wide variety of attractions, activities, and more. Spend the day exploring the Island or Dollywood in downtown Pigeon Forge. Head in the opposite direction, where favorites like Ripley's attractions, zip lines, and the Space Needle will appeal to your group. When in doubt, there's always the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to explore before heading back to your vacation rental.

Steep and winding mountain roads to cabin.

Very professional and personable customer service. I would have liked to have known our cabin location during the booking process instead of the day of check-in. I don't really understand the reasoning behind that.

The cabin was great. We loved the hot tub was very clean. We wished the fireplace in the living room was working. Called but said it was shut down because of the season. Well it was still cold a couple of days during our stay. There should be instructions for the t-stat and the remotes for the tv in living room and upstairs bedroom.

The cabin was amazing. Hot tub, fire pit, grill, location outstanding. Couldn't get the gas fireplace to work but we didn't need it. Cabin was clean when we arrived. Can't complain about anything. I WILL be back!

The cabin was wonderful! There was a slight smell of propane that smelt like eggs but it was just something we got use to.

The cabin was very nice and clean and everything we used worked. Loved that it was decorated for Christmas and an easy check in process. My only complaint was that shampoo, soap for the shower, and laundry detergent was not provided. Also, no hair dryer. The email indicated there would not be extra trash bags or toilet paper either, but fortunately there was. It just is an added stress to have to remember those items or go out to purchase them and it’s a minimal cost to provide those. I would have gladly paid $5 extra to have those items provided. Every other place we’ve stayed has provided those items.

It was a lovely place to stay. We had so much fun looking out at the beautiful scenery. Our only complaint was the master bedroom bed-mattress was horrendous the noise it made just getting into the bed and it sank into the middle

Every time we’ve stayed in one of your cabins it’s been absolutely wonderful! The descriptions are spot on and you always know what to expect. I love the newer check in procedure where the code is emailed. It makes for a much smoother process after a long drive. Thank you again for the great memories. :-)

Only thing I would recommend is providing at least an approximate location prior to check in that way families can plan their time better. Everything was great though!

-How is the drive to this cabin?

The drive to this cabin is steep and winding in areas. No 4 wheel drive necessary except during winter weather.


-How close to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is this cabin?

This cabin is 3.5 miles from the parkway of Pigeon Forge and 5.5 miles from the parkway of Gatlinburg.


-How many vehicles will fit in the driveway?

2-3 vehicles of any size will fit comfortably in this driveway.


-Is this cabin dog friendly?

NO… And we charge $250 when evidence of dog/animal is found inside unit.


-Is there another cabin nearby, in case more family wants to join? 

Nothing within walking distance, but we have A LOT of cabins in the same area if you want to text/call our Reservations Team for details: 865-436-6618


-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).


-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.

The VSG gives your reservation a cancellation policy. Without the VSG you will have a zero cancellation policy and zero reschedule policy. 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.

The Vacay Stay Guarantee allows for:
A 15 day cancellation policy for 1-3 bedroom properties.
A 60 day cancellation policy on 4+ bedroom properties.

For cancellations made outside of the 60 or 15 days, Auntie Belham’s refunds the entire amount of your payments made minus the cost of the VSG (which is only 7% of the total stay + taxes).

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.
