Throughout the cabin, you’ll find amenities designed to keep you comfortable and entertained, making A Knotty Bear your home away from home. This cozy Pigeon Forge cabin is more than a place to rest your head at night. It’s a place to unwind, enjoy a slower pace of life, take in the serenity of the mountains, and spend some quality time with family and friends you love. Breathe in these moments in the mountains and enjoy your escape to A Knotty Bear.

Living room
When you first arrive on vacation, plopping down on the sofa is probably the first thing you want to do. The comfortable living room of A Knotty Bear will invite you to do just that. Step inside, set down your suitcases, and kick back on the sofa for a bit. You’ll probably spend a good portion of your time relaxing here.

Outfitted with a sofa, rocking chair, and cushioned chair, it has space for several guests to sit around the stacked stone (gas) fireplace and watch the big screen TV. On lazy afternoons or nights in the cabin, flip through the movie library and pop some popcorn. Play cards on the coffee table or just use it to have your game-day snacks on hand.

A Knotty Bear also offers an open floorplan, with the living room, dining area, and kitchen all open to each other. This makes it easy for guests to visit whether watching TV, lounging, eating, or getting meals prepped. The living room also features a full sleeper sofa, so there’s some extra space for other guests.

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, where meals to be shared by loved ones are made. A Knotty Bear boasts an inviting, well-stocked kitchen to make those homemade meals possible. It features black appliances – a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, and dishwasher – along with a coffeemaker, blender, and dishes, utensils, and glassware for the group.

Save money by cooking your own meals, or just take advantage of having a place for leftovers and snacks. If you’re here for a family vacation, stock the refrigerator with some of the kids’ favorite treats. Getting away for romance? Chill some wine and have some chocolate-dipped fruits or steaks to throw on the grill outside. However you use this pace, you’ll find ample counter space and room for several people to pitch in.

Dining area
Just off the kitchen is a lovely dining area surrounded by windows letting in natural light and showcasing those peaceful wooded views. The table’s set for 6, so sit down and enjoy your time here. It will be easy to grab seconds from the kitchen and get back to chatting with friends. Or you can let the kids have breakfast here while watching their morning cartoons. If you’re traveling as a couple, set the table with candles and flowers and take time to reconnect.

The main bedroom in A Knotty Bear will be a welcome retreat after a big day downtown. Climb into your queen-size bed and get that much-needed rest you’ve been seeking. The room is furnished with the comforts of home, including nightstands and lamps, a ceiling fan, and a dresser if you want to unpack. And with 2 bathrooms in the cabin, each bedroom boasts its own space to get ready before heading into town or climbing into bed.

The semi-private loft in A Knotty Bear offers another queen-size bed and its own bathroom and closet. It’s a great space that feels like another bedroom, with nightstands and lamps, a dresser, and its own TV. There are even large windows framing wooded views, so you’ll feel tucked up among the trees as you rest here.

In its own alcove, a full futon offers some extra sleeping space or a place to kick up your feet with a good book. Set beneath a window, it will be a peaceful and private spot for enjoying some alone time.

Outdoor spaces
The wraparound porch of A Knotty Bear is the kind of place you just want to spend some time. When you walk up, you’ll be greeted by rocking chairs where you can sit back and enjoy the views. Make your way around the side for a peek of Bluff Mountain, along with a hot tub for soaking, more rocking chairs, and a picnic table where you can have meals on those beautiful Smoky Mountain days.

The whole property is wooded, and there is enough flat space for kids to stretch their legs and play in the parking area. There is room for about 4 cars, or there is space to park a trailer. There is even a fire pit that’s perfect for fall and winter nights, along with a charcoal grill for barbecues.
*4-wheel drive may be necessary in winter.
