Bear Elegance offers much more than the bare necessities — in fact, it has more the atmosphere of forest castle than a regular mountain cabin. This luxurious log home is a one-of-a-kind vacation experience, with unique spaces and high-end décor and finishes throughout. This three-bedroom retreat reaches three-stories high and uses all of that height to peer down the side of the mountain at the lush wilderness greenery all around.
The front steps of Bear Elegance lead to a main-floor deck hedged by careful landscaping. Through the front doors — a wrought-iron work of art in themselves — guests will enter a large, open living space with vaulted ceilings and dark, polished hardwood floors. A comfortable living room with leather reclining sofas and a full-height stonework fireplace is softly lit by natural light filtering in through skylights and the many windows.
The great room connects to a gallery kitchen with marble countertops and stainless-steel appliances. The kitchen is separated from the dining room by a wraparound breakfast bar, where a round table sits in front of a large, picture window with a great view. On a furnished lower level, guests can discover the in-home theater, with an oversized screen and eight cinema-style chairs. Also located on the lower level is the game room, with a pool table, a card table, an arcade game, a second lounging area with a flat-screen TV and a wet bar. A stair chair is available upon request to aid guests in traversing the stairs.
Sleeping arrangements: Each of the three stories at Bear Elegance houses a master suite, with a king-sized bed, a television and a private bathroom. The main floor suite enjoys the use of a private fireplace, as well as direct access to the exterior deck and a copper garden tub nestled in a corner nook with a window looking out toward the Smokies. The suite on the upper-story loft features an excellent bird’s-eye view of the countryside, while the lower-level suite also offers direct deck access.
The decks at Bear Elegance are well-appointed and expansive, furnished with old-fashioned rockers and alfresco bistro tables. Guests are welcome to enjoy luxury outdoor living, with the use of the charcoal grill and the hot tub.
Bear Elegance is a member of the 43-acre Black Bear Falls community, which offers guests seasonal access to the shared, heated outdoor swimming pools. A pianoforte and the chair lift are available upon request and require prior authorization. An additional fee and deposit will be taken for special arrangements.
Bear Elegance’s luxury lies not only in its spectacular furnishes and features, but also in its unbeatable location. This mountain cabin is located just ten minutes from downtown Gatlinburg, where visitors can walk the strip, eat and shop with ease, while enjoying one-stop access to the best entertainments the region has to offer. Some of the most popular attractions in downtown Gatlinburg include:
1. The Gatlinburg Space Needle
The Space Needle features a 407-foot-tall observation deck that offers a 360-degree view of the city and the mountains beyond.
The IRIS Theater is the go-to venue for live shows and entertainment, featuring stand-up comedy, music, drama and dancing.
3. The Captured
If you haven’t participated in an interactive escape room, now’s the time. This live attraction is located right at the base of the Space Needle, and is a battle of wits, skill and courage to avoid capture. It’s both fun, and an excellent bonding experience.
4. Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies
Ripley’s is rated America’s number-one aquarium, with everything from penguins to stingrays, and featuring live experiences such as diving and feeding shows.
5. Guinness World Records Museum
The Guinness museum offers incredible displays, interactive games, challenges and trivia, all centered on the exploration of the famous book of records.

Bear Elegance an amazing luxury cabin. My family stayed for a full week. The interior is perfection. The decorative details were outstanding and a wonderful surprise. We had our 3 boys ages 16,17 23 my husband and I and the three-story home was exactly what we needed. They could stay up late in the game room playing pool and make as much noise as they wanted too, and I could not hear a thing in my room on the third floor. The location is perfect. We were high enough to have amazing views but low enough to be near all of the activities we wanted to do. We have stayed at 4-5 cabins on vacations and this, by far, was our favorite cabin. Thank you, Don, for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. May God bless you and your family. Reviewed May 2018
