A classic log cabin set on 7 fantastic acres, Dancing Bear offers a quintessential Smoky Mountain experience. You’ll be tucked among the trees at this Pigeon Forge cabin that offers the comforts of home, fun amenities, and plenty of conveniences to make your Smoky Mountain vacation one to remember. It’s also located about 20-25 minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, offering you easy access to the best of the Smokies – from restaurants and shops to attractions and annual events.

Enjoy easy arrivals at this smoky Mountain cabin, with a large circular driveway with ample parking for the group. Step inside and drop your bags to get ready for a great getaway. This 1,500+ square-foot vacation rental can sleep up to 6 guests across the 2 king suites with log beds, private bathrooms with jetted tubs, hardwood floors, and easy access to the deck where you can enjoy a hot tub soak.

In the updated full kitchen, enjoy preparing meals, snacks, and drinks with new granite counters, full-size appliances, cooking tools, and dishes and glassware provided. Sit down at the dining table for 6 or head outside to toss some burgers and steaks on the gas grill. Enjoy outdoor seating here before climbing into the Nordic Retreat hot tub for a soak.

After a busy day, cozy up in front of the stacked stone fireplace while watching TV on the flatscreen. Browse the web via the Wi-Fi, read some books, or check out the board games provided in this hideaway. There is also a sleeper sofa for extra space, keyless entry (no office to stop by for check-in), and of course, it’s a pet-friendly cabin!

Living Room
Perfectly cozy and welcoming, the living room of Dancing Bear is just the place to unwind after a long day. You’ll appreciate the peace of the mountains at your secluded retreat, fit for family or friends.

The living room features wood flooring, exposed wood beams, a stacked stone (gas) fireplace, and large windows that frame those serene wooded views. Here you can relax on the sofa, grab a drink off the coffee table, and flip on the big screen TV. Watch some shows as you sit back in the recliner and stay cool beneath the ceiling fan.  

The fully equipped kitchen has been updated here, with new granite countertops, sleek black appliances, stone backsplash, and blue cabinets. It’s outfitted with all you need to make drinks, snacks, and meals. Cabinets are stocked with coffee mugs and glasses, utensils and cooking tools, and dishes for meals in the cabin. You will also have pots and pans and a microwave, so you can cook as much as you want or just reheat leftovers. In the morning, brew some coffee – with options for single cups or full pots for the group.

Dining Area
Gather for special holiday dinners, pancake breakfasts, picnic-style lunches, or a spread of snacks at this nice dining space. The log table opens to the kitchen and living room, so guests can spread out during meals. Sit down together at the table or take your plates to the picnic table outside or to the living room.

When you aren’t enjoying pizza parties or recipes the whole family loves, use the space to play board games and card games, put together puzzles, craft and scrapbook, or decorate some sweet holiday treats! You can also do homeschooling, take a work meeting, or sit down to plan out the day’s adventures using our blog.

Days of shopping, driving go-karts, playing miniature golf, riding roller coasters at Dollywood, watching dinner shows, and exploring The Island and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will leave you ready to rest in the cozy bedrooms at Dancing Bear. This 2-bedroom cabin features king-size beds, direct deck access from each bedroom, en-suite bathrooms, ceiling fans, TVs, log furniture, and jetted tubs!

Each guest will get the royal treatment in these private suites that are located on either side of the living room – offering extra privacy. There is also a full-size sleeper sofa in the living room, great for kiddos or extra guests.

Outdoor Spaces
Pigeon Forge has tons of great outdoor opportunities, from kayaking, whitewater rafting, and ziplining to hiking, fishing, and the nation’s most-visited national park. But when you want to enjoy the outdoors without leaving the cabin, Dancing Bear has you covered!

This 7-acres property offers hiking trails throughout, or you can sit back in the rocking chairs on the deck with a drink. As you relax on the deck with views of Webb Mountain, enjoy lush greenery in spring and summer, snow-covered trees in winter, and stunning colors during autumn.

There is also a dartboard for some fun, or you can climb into the bubbling Nordic Retreat hot tub to soak away stress. Toss burgers, fish, or kabobs on the gas grill and sit down at the picnic table for a nice outdoor meal.

Additionally, the home has a large, flat, circular driveway with parking for up to 4 vehicles. And with just a few steps up to the cabin, it won’t be a hike to get your vacation started.

Other Amenities
This pet-friendly cabin welcomes dogs (limit of 2), so you won’t have to board your dog while away. Bring them along for a fun week of hiking, strolling around your 7-acre property, or just cozying up by the fireplace.

With high speed Wi-Fi- in the cabin, easily catch up on emails, do homeschool with the kids, shop online, or just browse our blog to find out what’s happening in the area during your stay. You will also have a washer and dryer (pack light and head home with clean clothes) and keyless entry so you don’t have to go by an office for check-in.

This was a very cute cabin and great for a romantic getaway if you really want to be secluded.

This was a very cute cabin and great for a romantic getaway if you really want to be secluded. Very very private and lots of winding backroads to get there. Driveway is long and steep and winding. Very glad we had a Jeep with lots of off road lights. A couple of negatives…the couch was not comfy at all! And there was absolutely NOTHING to cook with. No spices, no oil, no sugar, no staples of any sort. Maybe it’s asking a lot, but when you’re only staying a few days, it’s a lot to have to purchase every single thing to prepare a meal or two and then either tote it all home or trash it. Also….the hot tub was filthy and smelled like a pond. They DID send someone to work on it….over halfway into our stay and that night when we finally could get in it, it wasn’t hot and half the jets didn’t work. Paid extra for a place with a hot tub and very disappointed in this element of our stay, especially when this is the catch line in the listing. All in all if you want to buy a bunch of groceries and stay in for a week, it’s a great place to go. But if you’re trying to go out a few times a day to enjoy the restaurants and entertainment of the city, I’d stay somewhere closer to town. Also….it’s very buggy outside and the air was very still. Take lots of bug spray if you’re planning to be outside at all!
