With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, Bear Cub Retreat can accommodate two couples visiting for a ski weekend as comfortably as it can a family on a summer vacation. The primary bedroom includes a NEW king-size bed and the second bedroom includes a NEW queen-size bed and both offer plenty of storage. One of the bedrooms opens directly onto the balcony. After the kids are asleep, you and your special someone can sit outside to revel in the silvery moonlight as owls hoot from the surrounding woods.
The balcony, which is screened for year-round enjoyment, is accessible from the living area as well. The living area's well-cushioned sofa opens into another bed for two, enabling the condo unit to sleep up to six people in all. After hitting the slopes, you'll love gathering around the electric fireplace, hot chocolate or Irish coffee in hand, to play charades or go over the highlights of the day. When you return from hiking, horseback riding or exploring Dollywood, you can kick back and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV with cable or surf the web via the free WiFi.
Next to the living area is the dining area. The handsome table seats six, and just behind it is a breakfast bar with two stools, where the kids can eat a snack or friends can help you prepare a meal. On the other side of the breakfast bar is the kitchen, equipped with all the appliances, cookware and tableware you'll need, whether you're whipping up pancakes for breakfast, hosting a dinner party or simply reheating leftovers from the previous night's restaurant meal. There's even a dishwasher because no one wants to scrub plates while on vacation. This unit is also equipped with its own washer and dryer.
Bear Cub Retreat's pool is indoors, which means you can swim and ski on the same day. There's something especially luxe about looking out the windows of the pool area at the snow-covered mountains while in your bathing suit! In warm weather, you can bask in the sun on the deck outside the pool or enjoy an alfresco snack at one of the patio tables. The resort has a sauna too-just what your tired muscles will long for after a day on the go-and a game room to ensure that the kids are never bored.
Though given how close Bear Cub Retreat is to the local attractions, they won't have the time to be bored. In 15 minutes or less you can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a wonderland of flora and fauna, and Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area. In winter, you can ski and snow tube, and there's ice skating, rides and an animal attraction year-round. Downtown Gatlinburg is equally close. Among its attractions are Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, the Guinness World Records Adventure, thrill rides, mini-golf, restaurants, shops and more. The Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, an eight-mile trail of more than 100 shops, galleries and studios, is less than a half-hour away, as are Dollywood and other attractions of the neighboring town of Pigeon Forge.
Bear Cub Retreat is atop a mountain, so in winter you'll want a vehicle with four-wheel drive and/or tire chains. Then again, its mountain location-high above the traffic and hubbub, with stunning sunrises and sunsets, but close enough to the action-is part of its appeal. Experience its pleasures for yourself. Book your stay today. We look forward to seeing you!

Grand kids trip
We loved the view. We brought our Grand kids and they loved the poolWould recommend to others? Yes
Nice place to stay with a few hiccups
Nice condo. Enjoyed the views and pool/hot tub. Wifi didn't seem to work and couldn't find a network that used the provided password. Called the '24-7' help line at 9am and got a confused guy at a restaurant and when I said 'Jackson Homes' he said 'Oh yeah, call back after 10 and you'll get someone at the office.' Also garbage disposal didn't work so the sink was kind of gross. But I don't mean to get too down on it. We had a good time and the place was clean and adequately supplied with dishes, kitchen items, blankets and pillows, etc. Thanks for a relaxing visit!Would recommend to others? Yes
