This Pigeon Forge cabin is packed with lots of conveniences, making you feel at home while still swept away by the Smoky Mountain grandeur! Make meals and snacks in the fully equipped kitchen to enjoy at the dining table or light the gas grill for an outdoor cookout together.

After a day of hiking to waterfalls, perusing museums, or shopping at The Island in Pigeon Forge, slip into comfort among the full-size blue couch and 2 red sitting chairs in this cozy space.
Centering this space is a large coffee table for midnight munchies or board games on a rainy day. The focal point here is a large, stacked stone (electric) fireplace with a 50-inch flatscreen TV mounted on it. There’s also a Blu-ray player and a surround sound system, so be sure to plan for movie nights on your family vacation or mountain retreat with friends!

Another option for your getaway to Pigeon Forge is to pick a restaurant that delivers or offers takeout so you can enjoy your meal from the comfort of your Smoky Mountain cabin.

Between mealtimes, you can clear the table and set up for puzzles or family game nights!
Pigeon Forge is loaded with fun things to see and do. Attractions like the Comedy Barn Theater keep families coming back to the Smokies year after year. But when you stay at one of our Pigeon Forge cabins, especially one like American Bear Cabin, you won’t have to make the short drive to downtown Pigeon Forge to have a great time. In the loft — aka game room — of this cabin, you’ll find exciting amenities to keep your family entertained for hours!
Enjoy a full-size pool table, air hockey table, foosball, and dartboard in this large loft space. There’s also a flatscreen TV where the kids can watch their favorite shows or you can catch a ball game. Besides the game tables, enjoy a 120-game Legends arcade unit and checkers table in the rec loft. You can play a round of checkers while soaking in tree-studded views of the Smokies from 2 large windows in this space.
This 2-bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge is ideal for family or small-group getaways. Both bedrooms are located on the first floor — each with a king-size bed, a private bathroom, and a TV. The primary suite also features an indoor jetted tub and a shower with a sit-down bench.
If you need more sleeping space on your Smoky Mountain retreat, take advantage of the queen-size sofa bed and extra sleeper in the loft. There are also 2 full bathrooms for added convenience. In total, you’ll be able to accommodate up to 8 guests for a Pigeon Forge vacation that’s full of comfort and fun!
One of the all-time favorite amenities of our Pigeon Forge cabins is an on-the-deck hot tub, where you can soak away your stress while you soak in the sights. American Bear Cabin doesn’t disappoint with its steamy hot tub enhanced by a privacy screen on one side and open views of the towering trees on the other.
Your semi-private Smoky Mountain cabin rental also offers a gas grill for family cookouts or Memorial Day barbecues and a couple of rocking chairs joined by a swinging bench, where you can unwind on the wraparound deck. To note, the motorcycle-friendly driveway is paved and flat with parking for up to 4 vehicles.

American Bear Cabin is one of the first cabins you’ll find inside the Bear Creek Crossing Resort, which means you’ll have easy access to exciting community amenities! Swim in the indoor pool year-round and splash in the outdoor pool — next to cascading waterfalls — in summer. Plus, there’s a mini-golf course, so bring your putters!
Your family and friends will have plenty of options for fun whether you stay at the cabin, venture to the community center, or make the short, 5-mile drive to downtown Pigeon Forge. Play at popular attractions, like Dollywood Theme Park, The Old Mill Square, and Paula Deen’s Lumberjack Adventure Park. Shop for Appalachian souvenirs, sip mountain moonshine, bite into homemade fudge, see a dinner show, snap selfies along the Little Pigeon River, and oh-so-much more!
Plus, you can pop over to neighboring mountain towns, including Gatlinburg, Sevierville, and Wears Valley, for even more things to do together. And there are loads of outdoor activities in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park — like hiking trails with mountain views, mountain biking, horseback riding, fly fishing, and picnicking.

"The best cabin experience! The cabin was clean, updated, and had everything that we needed for a terrific vacation and then some.
