Bear Necessities is perched among towering treetops. If offers guests privacy, spectacular views of the densely forested lands, and is just a 5-minute drive to Gatlinburg. Prepare for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation experience!

This Gatlinburg log cabin goes well beyond the home-away-from-home necessities too. It’s charming inside and out with plenty of luxuries: Large hot tub and gas grill on the back deck, pool table, arcade and indoor jetted tub is just the beginning. Fully equipped kitchen can handle a quick snack or a multi-course holiday feast - find all the cookware, tableware, and appliances you need. Dining table seats 6 people. If your Gatlinburg vacation is less about meal preparation and more about experiencing the local flavors, try a juicy steak one night, barbecue ribs the next, and everything from New Your style pizza to a sunrise Breakfast in between.

Sleeping arrangement: The master suite has a crafted log King bed, cathedral ceiling, a flat-panel TV, expansive windows, a jetted tub and master bath with shower. The upstairs loft has queen-size bunk beds and is home to the game room (arcade game, pool table, full bathroom). Extra bedding includes 1 Sofa Sleeper in the living room with 51-inch TV and the stone-surround gas fireplace for a little added romantic ambiance.

Unique Features

Your unique vacation starts here. Be warned, the kids will rush to stake their claim on the Loft since that is where the games are (Multicade arcade game) and pool table. We have your evening entertainment covered with 51” TV, a sound system, comfortable sofa in the living room and big windows that let in the sunlight and evening breezes.

Bring the whole family, a group of friends, or escape with you and your honey and take advantage of our unique location to the city - easy walking to shopping, dining and attractions that never stop (you’ll learn about mountain heritage and the arts around every corner). Gatlinburg is nestled at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in America.

Things To Do

Vacationers expect lots of memorable activities and Gatlinburg delivers. World-class golf and fishing, 900 miles of hiking trails in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Heart pounding Class-IV whitewater rafting, biking, birdwatching and horseback riding - every age and every skill level is represented in Gatlinburg. Every season is considered - Ober Gatlinburg is the only combined ski resort & amusement park in Tennessee! After a full day of hiking or biking, golfing or walking the grounds of Dollywood it’s time for a dip in the hot-tub. Now that your tired muscles are relaxed, maybe you’ll grill up your freshly caught trout and some corn on the cob. The deck is a great place to plan tomorrows activities.

Discover the hiking treasures of the Great Smoky Mountains; ask us about ziplines, tree canopy walks, magic and mind-reading shows, Gatlin’s Mini Golf, the Aerial Tramway, mountain coaster and the 2017 Best US Aquarium by USA Today: Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. Since you plan and book directly with us at Jackson Mountain Homes, we can give you tips based on what your interests are so everyone can experience a taste of Appalachian hospitality. A thrill ride for all ages is the Earthquake! For the adults - local breweries, distilleries and wineries are great pit stops. Stock up on your cabin spirits and vivations!

I loved everything about the place. My family completely enjoyed our short time there. My only complaint which really isn't one is our only full day there was Saturday. While enjoying our day I got emails and texts about our departure. Wanted to enjoy without thinking about leaving. That's not such a big deal. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin
Bear Necessities was very well-equipped. Very open and spacious! It was Great to relax in the hot tub after hiking in Smoky Mountains National Park. Very conveniently located to Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove, and Townsend. We were so busy that we didn't get a chance to use the pool table or the video arcade game! THANKS!
This cabin was conveniently located between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and was a quick trip to the National Park if you take the bypass. Instructions and communications were clear and we had no problem finding it or getting in. Cabin was clean and beds were fairly comfortable. There were a few other cabins nearby, but it felt secluded and the back porch had nice views & we enjoyed sitting in hot tub under the stars at night.
