If you’re not convinced a log home in the Great Smoky Mountains can be luxurious, that’s because you’ve never been to Bear Elegance. Furnished with a discerning eye for detail, this retreat includes 3 en-suite master bedrooms, a spacious theater room, an outdoor hot tub, and a pool table among its amenities. Bear Elegance is a luxury, diamond rated property that you must see to believe!
Each of Bear Elegance’s 3 floors has it own master suite, so you can enjoy exceptional privacy. All 3 suites include a king-size bed, a private bathroom, and a flat-screen TV—and so much more. The main floor’s suite, for instance, boasts a fireplace as well, along with a door that opens directly onto a deck. The bedroom also features a gleaming copper garden tub nestled in a nook that looks out toward the Smoky Mountains. Just as pampering is the private bathroom: In addition to a custom-tiled shower with a rainfall showerhead, it offers 2 lavish vanities. Getting ready for a night out on the town becomes an event in itself.
The loft’s suite benefits from a dramatic sloped ceiling and a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding trees. Its equally lavish private bathroom includes a soaking tub and a shower. The downstairs suite, like that of the main floor, opens directly onto a deck, so that you and your sweetheart can slip outside for a spot of stargazing without waking the others.
The great room, which makes up most of the main floor, is both grand and welcoming. The towering vaulted ceiling and the expansive windows imbue it with an airy ease. Leather couches provide a delightful sitting area for watching TV while basking in the golden glow of the gas fireplace or surfing the web via the complimentary WiFi.
The dining table is close enough to the fireplace to benefit from its warmth—perfect after a day of skiing or snowboarding. Six people can sit at the table, in cushiony leather seats so comfortable you’ll want to linger long after the meal is over. The adjacent breakfast bar, which seats 2 more, is a handy spot for sous chefs to perch and help with meal prep. And once you see Bear Elegance’s spectacular kitchen, you’ll definitely be inspired to get cooking. Open, spacious, and gorgeously appointed, it includes stainless-steel appliances, cookware, tableware, and plenty of gleaming counter space.
When you’re not congregating in the great room, you’ll no doubt be downstairs. Here’s where you’ll find the large theater room, with its oversize screen and 8 cinema-style chairs, complete with cup holders. Another 4 modern rockers will definitely entice the kids.
Also downstairs is the game room. You can choose between shooting pool, playing at the classic arcade, sitting at the bistro table for a game of cards, and stretching out on the sofa to watch TV. The room has its own wet bar, so you don’t have to run upstairs for a cold drink. And to ensure that even those with mobility issues can join the fun, there’s a stair chair for the stairway between the downstairs and the main floor.
Let’s not forget Bear Elegance’s expansive decks. Furnished with rockers, tables, and even a swing, they make it easy for you to revel in the glorious scenery day and night. Thanks to the charcoal grill you can cook outdoors, then dine alfresco on the deck’s dining area. Perhaps best of all, the lower deck includes a roomy hot tub for lazing after an action-packed day.
Bear Elegance is located in the 43-acre Black Bear Falls community. That means in the summer you’ll have free access to its heated swimming pools. It also means you’re just 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg
