Romance is alive and well at Snuggle Bear. This 1-bedroom love nest was designed for getaways with that special someone. Though it’s just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, once you step inside the cabin you’ll feel as if you’re in your own private haven.
The covered front porch welcomes you with a pair of rocking chairs, a Smoky Mountain cabin essential. Bring your morning coffee or juice out here to watch the sunrise and listen to wrens and warblers greet the day. The porch also houses a gas grill, perfect for cooking up steaks, burgers, or trout you reeled in yourself from one of the nearby streams.
Snuggle Bear has a covered rear deck too, with a ceiling fan so that you can relish the woodland view on even sultry summer days. When you’re not stretched out on one of the comfortably padded chairs or dining alfresco, you can luxuriate in the deck’s hot tub. You’ll love lazing among its steamy bubbles after a day spent hiking or skiing—or you might want to skip the hiking and skiing and simply spend the time soaking instead!
The interior of Snuggle Bear is delightfully cozy. Its high sloped ceiling and burnished wood-planked floors and walls provide a rustic complement to the luxurious contemporary furnishings. These include a leather sectional sofa where both of you can stretch out (or snuggle together) while watching a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable.
Thanks to Snuggle Bear’s superb location, a wide variety of eateries (including the acclaimed Greenbrier Restaurant) are only a short drive away. Sometimes, though, dining in is much more romantic—especially at a table for 2 set beside a fireplace, like the one here. The kitchen has all the appliances, gadgets, cookware, and tableware you’ll need to prepare your feast, whether it’s a gourmet delight or a batch of margaritas to accompany cheese and crackers.
For dessert, you might want to head to the bedroom’s jetted tub. Turn off the lights, bask in the golden warmth of the room’s fireplace (yes, Snuggle Bear has 2 fireplaces), and let the massaging jets of water soothe you into a state of utter relaxation. Afterward you can lounge on the sumptuous king-size four-poster bed. If you need cooling off after your soak, the soft breeze of the ceiling fan will do just that.
Snuggle Bear’s other amenities include free WiFi, a stereo system, and in the summer, free access to the outdoor pool that, like the cabin itself, is part of the Mountain Shadows Resort. And have we mentioned that the cabin is pet-friendly? Well, it is!
The cabin’s proximity to the local attractions definitely counts as another amenity. Snuggle Bear is within the Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of more than 100 galleries, studios, and shops offering everything from stained glass to custom knives to chainsaw art. Less than 10 minutes away is downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Museum, an aquarium, thrill rides, distilleries, and a tram that carries you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. Just a few minutes farther is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, with its hiking and biking trails, historic cabins, waterfalls, and wildlife ranging from black bears to elk. Even the attractions of Pigeon Forge, including Dollywood and the Titanic Museum, are less than a half-hour away.
However you spend your days, you’ll look forward to returning to the relaxation and romance of Snuggle Bear at night. Experience its bliss for yourself; book your stay today.
