A three-bedroom chalet-style cabin that sleeps eight, Bear Ridge just might be the site of your best vacation yet. Recently renovated, it sits on three-quarters of an acre of lushly wooded land, providing plenty of privacy and serenity. And because it’s just minutes from the Pigeon Forge Parkway, it’s also conveniently close to all the local attractions.
A huge wraparound deck lets you make the most of the wooded views. You can sit on rocking chairs as you sip your morning coffee and listen to songbirds greet the day, then stretch out on well-cushioned chaises in the afternoon to read or treat yourself to a well-deserved nap. And for true indulgence, luxuriate in the deck’s hot tub beneath a canopy of stars as owls hoot and the mountain breeze whispers through the trees—sheer bliss!
Inside, Bear Ridge is decorated in modern rustic fashion, with log-frame furnishings, restful colors, and large windows that let in plenty of sunshine. There’s enough seating in the spacious living room for the whole family to kick back and watch a movie on the flat-panel TV. And if you need to catch up on emails, you can sit yourself down at the desk and take advantage of the cabin’s free high-speed WiFi—just try not to get distracted from the view outside the window. One of the living room couches, by the way, opens into a bed for two.
Although Bear Ridge is close to a wealth of restaurants, once you see the kitchen and dining area you’ll want to enjoy at least a few meals right here. Nestled in a corner with banquettes and chairs, the dining table seats six, and another three people can sit at the kitchen island, which doubles as a breakfast bar. The kitchen is roomy, open, and fully equipped with appliances, gadgets, cookware, tableware, and plenty of counter space. What’s more, you can rustle up some home-cooked barbecue on the deck’s grill; the fresh mountain air is the perfect seasoning. For dessert, head out to the fire pit and roast marshmallows as dusk gives way to nighttime.
Like the living room, dining area, and kitchen, the master suite is located on the main floor. A great night’s sleep is practically guaranteed here. French doors open directly onto the deck, so you can slip outside for a spot of stargazing before sprawling out on the king-size bed. Or maybe you’d like to pamper yourself with a soak in the en-suite bathroom’s jetted tub. Especially after a day of hiking, skiing, or keeping up with the kids at Dollywood, lazing among the jets of steamy water will feel so soothing. The master bedroom also has a flat-panel TV and a ceiling fan whose gentle breeze is sure to lull you to sleep.
The other two bedrooms are upstairs. The sloped ceilings of these rooms add to the comfortable cocooning ambiance. One bedroom has a queen-size bed, the other a pair of twin beds. Both have their own flat-screen TVs with premium sound systems; the kids won’t give you any argument about heading to bed on time!
Upstairs has a reading nook as well, with generously cushioned slipper chairs that make this a quiet spot for one-on-one chats. Back on the main floor, you’ll find a second bathroom as well as a washer and dryer. Here’s your chance to return home from vacation with luggage filled with clean clothes for a change.
Bear Ridge’s setting is so secluded and serene, it’s easy to forget just how close it is to the area’s attractions. In less than fifteen minutes you can drive to Dollywood, the Gatlinburg Golf Course, the Titanic Museum, and the Smoky Mountain Opry, among other popular spots. Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park & Ski Area is just twenty minutes away, as is the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
For the perfect balance of privacy, convenience, and comfort, Bear Ridge is tough to beat. So book your stay today; we can’t wait to see you!
