Little Bear Hideaway is just as charming as its name. Tucked away in a wooded area of the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, the 1-bedroom log cabin offers all the privacy and quiet you want for a romantic getaway, along with luxuries such as an outdoor hot tub and an indoor jetted tub.
The covered deck, which spans the length of Little Bear Hideaway, enables you to make the most of the idyllic setting. You can kick back in the rocking chairs and listen to warblers in the morning and whip-poor-wills at night as the crisp mountain breeze rustles through the trees. Lush and green in spring and summer, the setting is especially dazzling in autumn when the leaves transform into a kaleidoscope of golds and reds. You can cook up burgers from the supermarket or trout you reeled in yourself on the deck’s charcoal grill. Best of all, the deck includes a hot tub. Few things are more romantic than basking among steamy jets of bubbles with that special someone amid the silvery shimmer of moonlight.
The great room’s fireplace ensures that the romantic ambiance continues inside. The comfy sofa is made for snuggling while you watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, which receives cable channels and includes a DVD player. Or perhaps you’d like to enjoy some quiet time in the rocking chair, reading a book or surfing the web via the free WiFi.
A cozy dining table perched beside a window is just the right size for a candlelit—or fireplace-lit—dinner for 4. Little Bear Hideaway’s kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you’ll need to prepare a multi-course dinner… or to heat up leftovers from the previous night’s restaurant meal.
The bedroom makes up the loft, and it’s just as inviting as the great room, with wood-planked walls and a beamed, sloped ceiling. A languorous soak in its heart-shaped jetted tub is a blissful way to end the day—and an enchanting way to start the evening. After your soak, sprawl out on the king-size bed and watch TV, listen to the crickets chirp and the owls hoot, or find another way to entertain yourself with your sweetheart.
Little Bear Hideaway’s bathroom is large enough to include a convenient washer and dryer. What’s more, the great room’s sofa opens into a queen-size bed, should you decide to make your romantic getaway a family vacation instead.
If you’re staying in Little Bear Hideaway with just your sweetie, you might want to spend the majority of time at the cabin, enjoying the views, the hot tub, and each other’s company. But you’ll find plenty to see and do just minutes away. The Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, for instance, includes an 8-mile trail of more than 120 galleries, shops, and studios offering everything from paintings to pottery, candles to quilts. In 15 minutes you can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a wonderland of wildlife, wildflowers, and waterfalls. And just 12 minutes away is downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Adventure, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and a tram that carries you over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. Even Dollywood, the Titanic Museum, and other attractions of Pigeon Forge are less than a half-hour away.
Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? So make your reservation today, and get ready to make memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
