Nestled in the woods with a Smoky Mountains backdrop and a rushing creek beside the deck, mountain cabins don’t get any better than Lil Bear’s Den. Natural logs make up the exterior and inside you’ll find the warm, welcoming glow of hand-finished pine. This cabin is a jewel with three bedrooms and the option to sleep up to eight when the futon in the sunroom is used as a bed for two.
Lil Bear’s Den has it all - from a huge stone fireplace to a gourmet kitchen. There’s not a bad season to visit this woodland cabin. You’ll enjoy dogwoods in spring, flaming colors in autumn, winter skiing, and the gurgling creek in summer. When you walk into Lil Bear’s Den, you’ll be delighted with the cozy furniture and open floor plan. Grab a seat on the couch to watch the large HDTV with BluRay and cable. Or, enjoy a good book by the crackling fire. There’s plenty of space for family games and a deck outside with a bubbling hot tub to soak in after a day of hiking or skiing. It’s fun to sit out on the deck and enjoy a morning cup of coffee while you listen to the stream and the songbirds singing their hearts out above.
