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.

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.
