Laugh away the evening hours around the big coffee table playing board games by a warm, crackling fire! No need to gather wood on those cold winter days; the gas fireplace is easy and convenient for nights of sipping hot chocolate and watching the kids play with their newly opened Christmas gifts. Let your imagination adventure through your latest reading obsession, uninterrupted by home responsibilities and stressful distractions, while slowly leaning back in the rocking chair illuminated by the natural light drifting in through the nearby window.

Every appliance and tool is within your grasp in Bear View’s spacious kitchen with a long breakfast bar, making big holiday meals a lot easier! It’s also easy to set up a buffet of snacks for game day or lazy days around the cabin! Mosey into the soft morning light of the kitchen to start your day your favorite way; use the blender to create a breakfast smoothie, the coffeemaker to brew a warm cup of joe, or the toaster to heat an English muffin. Venture into the kitchen late at night to retrieve your leftovers from the full double-door refrigerator before reheating your delicious midnight snack in the microwave.
After piling on all the delicious sides from the Thanksgiving buffet laid out on the breakfast bar, find a seat around the charming 6-chair wooden dining set a few steps away from the kitchen. The open concept of Bear View’s floorplan provides plenty of space for everyone during meals together without ever feeling cramped. After clearing the plates from dinner and placing them in the dishwasher, lay out a board game to play while sipping on blackberry dessert wine from your tour of the Smoky Mountain Winery in downtown Pigeon Forge. Reconnect with friends or make cherished memories with family while sitting around the dinner table!
Unpack your suitcases into the spacious dresser of your bedroom and feel more at home during your stay in Bear View! The entry-level bedroom provides a comfortable king-size bed, nightstand for books and phones to be easily accessible, and a big flatscreen TV so you can watch your favorite late-night shows before drifting off to sleep.
In the Second Floor, another king-size bed awaits. Curl up after a long day, flip on your flatscreen TV, and fall asleep watching movies and favorite late-night comedians. Just around the corner, a twin bunk bed lets kids have their own sleepovers with an Xbox and their own TV. A bathroom placed on each level provides easy bathroom access when you and the kids awake in the mornings. The king-size beds are the perfect resting place for tired guests who want to enjoy an afternoon nap or watch TV on the large flatscreens under the soft breeze of the ceiling fans.
Challenge the kids or your spouse to a friendly game on the pool table while passing some time during cabin downtime in the afternoons. While the big game plays on the large flatscreen TV nearby in the living room, take turns making trick shots and sipping on cold beers as other guests laugh and hang out on the couch. The open concept floor plan makes enjoying company while eating, playing, cooking, and relaxing easy and more fun!
Take advantage of the wonderful temperatures of the Smoky Mountains and take the fun outside to the back deck! Play board games and host summer picnics at the dining set on the screened-in porch on summer afternoons, rain or shine. Take nice, long soaks in the outdoor hot tub on the screened-in porch in the evenings, letting the steam clear your mind and the waters soothe your body.
