Perfect for both a romantic getaway and a weekend away with the family, Cozy Bear Lodge is the perfect Smoky Mountain cabin for a TRUE mountain experience. It's a very large 1 BR (sleeps 6) with wifi, a hot tub and tons of space.
The cabin is central between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and just 6 miles away from the action. But it FEELS isolated, being in the middle of the woods and hills.
The cabin is located deep in the woods, down a beautiful and winding mountain road. It's located directly between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, so it's right where you want to be. Getting there, you even cross a small creek and pond... It's perfect for having your "cabin" experience in the Smokys!
You can take in the birds and trees from rockers on both the front and back porches, soak in the hot tub after a long day hiking/shopping, or relax with the TV and pool table. (Netflix, Disney+ and YouTube TV are all logged in and ready to go)
The cabin itself is appointed just as you'd hope and is huge for a 1 bedroom (1386 sf) so you never feel cramped for space. Upstairs is the open living area with soaring ceilings and plenty of windows to let the light in. A sleeper sofa and comfy chair frame the gas fireplace so everyone can stay warm on those cold evenings. Also, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need - Keurig and a coffee maker, pots, pans, silverware, glasses, blender, crock pot, microwave, iron and board, washer and dryer. Just bring any food you want and you're all set.
There is a 4 burner propane bbq grill on the porch with all the tools you need to grill up a tasty meal, if that's your preference. (Propane take will be there but you may need to swap it out)
The two flat screen TVs have Netflix/YouTube TV/Disney+ hooked up and of course there is wifi so you stay connected. (But ONLY if you want to!)
The bedroom features a king bed with extra comfy mattress, which is perfect for getting a great night of sleep. If you're feeling in the mood (hint-hint guys looking for brownie points), an in-room Jacuzzi tub is perfect for that. (There is a full shower+bath in here too, but I forgot to take a picture of it!) And we just put a vinyl record player with a few older albums, but bring your own if you want to have a fun little memory.
We recently added a second sleeper sofa and table to the room just in case you either want to relax or bring along an extra person or two. (The pictures don't reflect the new sofa)
On the outside, there's a private hot tub on the porch to warm your muscles and help you relax after a long day exploring the area. Keep your eyes open because if you're lucky, every week or two guests spot a black bear (Dolly) and her cubs walking by!!
When you're done relaxing in the hills, the entire area is chock full of things to see and do. Head to Great Smoky Mountains National Park for a long hike and your eyes peeled for wildflowers, white-tailed deer and 60+ species of birds that are there year round. If it happens to be rainy, climb into your car and take a drive through the park for glimpses of historic buildings dating back to the 1800s. In either case, pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it!
Dollywood is the beating heart in the area and has something for all ages, whether it be amusement park rides or fun live entertainment. Gatlinburg Golf Course is there if you have a desire to get in a few holes... But most don't know that there is a Harrah's Casino a short drive away in Cherokee, NC. And of course you can ski at Ober in Gatlinburg as well as Cataloochee Ski Area in North Carolina if you want to get some half decent shredding action.
** I want to note that if there is snow/ice on the ground, you will want a 4WD vehicle. The Smoky Mountains are very hilly and the cabin is on a hill too. I'm not aware of any wrecks due to weather but I definitely want you to be safe! **
For a couple seeking a relaxing and romantic retreat or a small family looking for a getaway, there's no better place than here in the Smoky Mountains. Don't miss out on Cozy Bear Lodge - book your stay now!
Other things to note
*** The entire Smoky Mountain area is very hilly (After all, it IS the Smoky Mountains!) so do yourself a favor and download an "offline map" in your Google Maps program. This will let you navigate to our cabin and around the area even if you don't have cell coverage. Neat, right??!
To do this, it's easy:
1. Open the Google Maps app and log in.
2. Search for Pigeon Forge. Zoom in/out so that the map you see contains everything from Gatlinburg on the bottom to Sevierville on the top. Don't be afraid to zoom way out because it'll get everything in between.
