Just ten minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, Black Bear Hideaway makes it easy to experience everything the area has to offer—including the serenity and beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. Despite its convenient location, the three-bedroom log cabin feels blissfully removed from the hubbub of the everyday.

Black Bear Hideaway has both a front porch and a rear deck where you can relish the fresh breeze, the singing of thrushes and warblers, and the sight of the mountains beyond the woodlands. You’ll find it tough to resist the romance of the porch swing at night: After the kids are asleep, slip outside with a drink and snuggle with your special someone while gazing up at the stars. The deck includes a table where you can enjoy a meal alfresco. And perhaps the best way to soak up the natural beauty is while soaking in the deck’s hot tub; its massaging jets of water will feel especially fabulous when you return from a day of skiing, hiking, or white-water rafting.

Inside, Black Bear Hideaway is just as relaxing and restful. The charm of the great room’s wood-planked walls, floors, and beamed ceiling is rivaled only by the comfort of its large sectional sofa. Sink back and watch a movie on the large flat-screen TV, play Pictionary and charades, or take advantage of the free WiFi to surf the web.

The dining table’s chairs and bench are as well cushioned as the sectional, so you’ll enjoy lingering long after your meal is over. Once the dishes are cleared, set up your Monopoly or Scrabble board, and let your family meal segue into family game night. As for the meal itself, the kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need, whether you’re serving a multi-course feast or reheating leftovers from the previous evening’s restaurant meal.

If you enjoy shooting pool, head upstairs to the loft’s game room, which features a full-size billiard table. Even if you don’t play pool, the game room is a fun space for hanging out: It has its own flat-screen TV and a stereo. What’s more, the game room can sleep up to five people: two on the futon and three on the twin-over-double bunk beds.

The loft is also home to the primary bedroom. Spacious and airy, with a beamed cathedral ceiling, this room includes a king-size bed, a flat-screen TV, loads of storage, and a separate sleeping nook with a twin bed that’s perfect if you’re vacationing with a little one.

The other two bedrooms are on the main floor. One features a queen-size bed, making Black Bear Hideaway well suited for two couples or families vacationing together. The remaining bedroom has a twin bed with a trundle. Both bedrooms, like the upstairs primary, have a flat-screen TV and generous storage. There’s a full bathroom on each floor; the main floor’s bathroom includes a washer and dryer for added convenience.

Any time of year, however, you’ll find plenty to do just beyond your front door. Within ten minutes you can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its wildlife, wildflowers, and waterfalls, and Wild Bear Falls Water Park. Also just ten minutes away is downtown Gatlinburg, home to thrill rides, the Guinness World Records Museum, an aquarium, mini golf, arcades, and a tram that will carry you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Ski Area and Amusement Park. What’s more, the attractions of Pigeon Forge, which include Dollywood and the Titanic Museum, are no more than a half-hour away.

Close to all the action yet blissfully bucolic and peaceful, Black Bear Hideaway really is the best of all worlds—and don’t you deserve the best? So book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it.

Black Bear Hideaway did not disappoint!

The cabin is awesome, and super close to Gatlinburg. It has a nice hot tub and pool table. The kitchen was nice and well equipped. Beds were comfortable. My only suggestion is if you want to play pool, you should bring your own pool stick, theirs were small and didn't have any tips on them. The TVs were huge and there were lots of movies there to watch. We even saw a bear out front!

Great place!

The place was exactly as pictured. Everything looked amazing. The place was very clean and comfortable, although upstairs can get very hot and you can't adjust the AC. That's the only downfall of the place.

Great location

Great location- very convenient to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Enjoyed the fact that it wasn’t in a big complex and was very private. Loved it. Only down sides were no dishwasher and thin walls.

Great location

Great location with access to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge!!! The property was clean and ready for our arrival. The hot tub is a nice feature and my wife took advantage of the soothing warm water after a long day doing the tourist thing! The property is lacking in some areas. The washer/dryer (all in one unit) takes forever and does such a small load it might as well not be there. The sound from anyone walking around in the second floor bedrooms travels into the first floor bedrooms like they are in the room with you! If you are a light sleeper stay on the second floor! The AC doesn't keep the second floor as cool as the first (heat rises) . We were lucky enough to have cool weather while we were there and this was only a concern on the warmest day. It could be a problem during warmer months!!!! The lighting in the unit is dim and needs higher wattage bulbs and/or replaced with Soft White bulbs. The glare on the dining room table was rather annoying when playing cards with the grand kids. The only exterior lighting on the front of the house is a light at the front door. We arrived at night and made our way to the front door using the car headlights. Additional exterior lights of some sort should be installed in the front of the house, especially since guests will be unfamiliar with the yard.

Best Cabin in the Area

Amazing cabin. Very quiet and has more privacy than many other cabins in the area. The interior and exterior are very clean and in good shape. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay in the Gatlinburg area!

Cabin in the Smoky Mountains at Black Bear Hideaway.

This was a wonderful getaway for our family. The smoky mountains had such wonderful view and the cabin in the midst of the mountains was breathtaking. Would definitely recommend. there was plenty of things to do and keep us entertained in the area. The washer/drying did give us some problems. It didn't want to open and we almost missed our check out time
