A comfortable, fun, and relaxing cabin in the woods of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, A Bear’s Eye View boasts lots of windows, tree-studded views — plus valley views — and a classic log build that gives you the quintessential mountain experience. From modern fun to homey conveniences, this 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom cabin with space for up to 10 guests really impresses.
When you’re ready for a break from exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and downtown Gatlinburg attractions, shops, and restaurants, head back to A Bear’s Eye View for games and inviting spaces. Shoot pool and try your hand at foosball — all with gorgeous tree-lined views. Or you can cozy up in the lounge area upstairs with plump sofas, a big screen TV, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Down the spiral staircase, find the living room with a gas fireplace, more cozy seating, a TV, lots of windows, and the fully equipped kitchen just steps away. It has all you need for in-cabin meals, including a dining table and full-size appliances. A charcoal grill awaits outside, and the hot tub on the deck is perfect for unwinding after long days. Or just grab a drink and sit back in the rocking chairs to enjoy the views.
At night, each bedroom offers its own TV and king-size bed! There are also 2 queen sleeper sofas in the cabin if you need more space. Plus, you’ll have conveniences like wireless internet, an indoor jetted tub, a flat driveway, and a washer and dryer at A Bear’s Eye View!
Step into your cozy mountain vacation as you enter the living room, where a plump L-shaped sofa (also a queen sleeper), large coffee table, flatscreen TV, and tall windows await to welcome you. Place drinks and snacks on the table, flip on the TV, and plop on the sofa. Or opt for card and board games brought from home instead! On chilly evenings, the stacked-stone gas fireplace is great for cozying up with your spouse, telling spine-tingling ghost stories to the kids, or curling up for a romantic read.
Featuring an open concept, the kitchen at A Bear’s Eye View is convenient to the living and dining areas. It is also fully equipped with major appliances, cookware, plates, cutlery, glasses, and more to make meal prep easy as pie — which we highly recommend you make! Keep ingredients fresh in the fridge, whip up family feasts on the stove, pop buttery delights in the 2 microwaves, brew a pot of joe anytime, and let the dishwasher clean up the mess. There’s also a blender, toaster, electric can opener, and a stainless-steel double sink.
Feet away from the kitchen lives the dining area with a square table for 4, great for mealtimes, coloring time with the kids, wine time with your bestie, work time…nah, don’t worry about that while you’re on vacation! And remember the living area seating is just a few steps away, so the rest of your group will have their own place to dine in comfort.
Atop the spiral staircase awaits the rec space, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows with treetop views, game tables, and a media area with a big screen TV, sofa seating (one doubles as a queen sleeper), and a DVD player! Challenge your pals to pool and coach your foosball team to victory, all while grooving to your favorite jams on the CD player. Then, gather the movie lovers in your group for a feature film on the big screen — game tournament champion chooses the DVD!
It’s bedtime, and you’re ready to hit the hay on your king-size bed. In fact, each bedroom features a king-size bed, a TV, an en-suite bathroom, and direct deck access so you can wake up to fresh mountain air with a steaming cup of coffee every morning! The master bedroom even boasts a romantic fireplace and expansive windows with tree-studded views. There’s also an indoor jetted tub, great for unwinding after a full day of play at the cabin. And the queen sleepers in the living room and rec loft are great for extra sleeping space.
While the numerous windows will have you feeling as if you’re at one with nature, the outdoor spaces at A Bear’s Eye View will take you that extra step. Rock away your worries and cares on the front porch with a glass of wine, head onto the entry-level deck for a soothing hot tub soak with the trees, or sway with a loved one on the second-floor deck’s swing. And when you’re ready to head to town for tasty meals, endless shopping, and attraction fun, walk down 3 easy steps onto the flat, paved driveway with parking for 3 vehicles and be on your way in not time. There’s also a charcoal, picnic-style grill, perfect for cabin cookouts.

"Absolutely beautiful cabin. The main floor is pretty large, with a master suite that leads out to a large deck with a huge, fantastic, hot tub. My 7 &9 year old enjoyed having the HUGE loft pretty much to themselves. The view from the loft is absolutely beautiful. There's two microwaves, an oven, etc. Wi-Fi is spotty at best, but you're in the mountains, so it's to be expected.
My one real complaint, and it's not really even a complaint, just an observation - if you have anyone with mobility issues in your party, you might want to look at a different cabin. My mother was with us, and she has hip/knee issues and arthritis. The bathtub in the master was high and deep, and she had trouble getting in to take a shower. There is a shower stall in the basement, but it would have required her to go down a narrow spiral staircase. Aside from that, the cabin was absolutely lovely, and if it was just the 4 of us, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to stay here again."
