Inside, custom woodwork and warm paneling give this cabin a cozy, rustic atmosphere, while polished wood floors, vaulted ceilings and thematic lighting make Black Bear Lodge an ideal luxury vacation.

On the main floor, a large living room features large widows on two sides, providing an incomparable view of the Tennessee landscape and filling the space with natural light. Plush leather sofas are gathered around a stone hearth and a large, flat-screen TV.

Unique Features

Black Bear Lodge makes great use of its high vantage point by providing gorgeous outdoor spaces. The double decks on the front of the house are furnished with old-fashioned rocking chairs and a swing that look out over the valley. Another, more private deck is positioned to the side of the house with an outdoor hot tub surrounded by tall trees. For even more secluded relaxation, this woodsy cabin is also equipped with an indoor whirl pool tub in the master bath.

Things To Do

Black Bear Lodge is located in Townsend, Tennessee, just minutes from the popular tourism hubs of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Townsend is home to a variety of unique shops and local restaurants, while Pigeon Forge is known for its live entertainments, including concerts and dinner shows. Visitors can get lost in the history of an American icon at the Elvis Museum, or spend the day appreciating natural treasures at the Forbidden Caverns.

In Gatlinburg, visitors will find the Space Needle and the Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort & Amusement Park, where indoor and outdoor adventures include ice skating, downhill skiing, a go-cart track and a real black bear habitat. Visitors can also enjoy the views on and under the water at Pigeon River White Water Adventures or Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.

Black Bear Lodge also offers easy access to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, where visitors can explore the great outdoors from lofty hiking trails or take an easy ride along the trails with Bluff Mountain Adventures. The mountains hold many breathtaking sights and other wonders, including free wine tastings and tours at Mountain Valley Vineyards or the Smoky Mountain Winery.

Wow! Great time staying here! Our first time to this area and for staying at a cabin! It was really nice to have a kitchen and laundry to take care of everyone’s needs! loved having the hot tub to take care of mine! Dayton, OH
Beautiful cabin, great location. Far enough from Pigeon Forge to give us the feeling we “got away”, but close enough for when we needed to go to town for something! Really enjoyed the Fireplace!” Jason, NY
Thank you! We really enjoyed our stay at Bear Lodge. It was nice to do our running around, then return to the peace and quiet. We may never use a motel again. We were able to be together without feeling like we were on top of each other. Thank you again! Kimberly Frith
We loved this cabin! It is secluded, but not far from attractions.It is up to date, with plenty of room for our group of 9. Upon arrival the cabin was very clean, grass freshly mowed, outside areas were clean. We will definitely stay in this cabin again in the future. Kara Campbell
We couldn't have been happier with our stay at the Black Bear Lodge cabin! It was very clean and well equipped. The location is perfect and we took advantage of the back roads to get into Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, wasn't stuck in traffic at all. Truly a wonderful vacation. Wa will return! Joann Kinnaird
We really enjoyed our stay at Black Bear Lodge! The cabin was very clean and well stocked with bedding, towels, etc. We loved the private drive/setting and enjoyed sitting on the porch and taking walks at night. The fire pit was fantastic! We used it almost every night and loved hearing the coyotes ??. Would stay again and would highly recommend to others. This cabin was close to everything we wanted to do; national park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Cade's Cove, etc. Thanks so much!! Kim Chilcote
