Located in the Bear Creek Crossing Resort, the traditional log American Bear Cabin is a classic mountain getaway with some great extras! The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom cabin for 8 is semi private and boasts a patriotic motif throughout the cabin, easy parking on a flat, paved driveway (motorcycle friendly), access to indoor and outdoor community pools, a fun game room, a soothing outdoor hot tub, and peaceful wooded and mountain views! It's also packed with lots of conveniences, making you feel at home while still swept away by the Smoky Mountain grandeur! Plus, American Bear Cabin is just a few miles from downtown, so it'll be easy to head into town for dinner, shopping, and playing at the dozens of attractions!
Living Room An inviting log exterior is matched by a charming patriotic interior when you step inside American Bear Cabin. This 2-story cabin boasts high ceilings and large windows, creating an open, airy atmosphere where you can feel right at home. Slip into comfort in the American Bear Cabin living room, where you’ll find 3 cozy seating options: a full-size blue couch accompanied by 2 red-and-white-striped sitting chairs. In the middle of this space is a large coffee table for midnight munchies or board games on a rainy day. And the focal point of the living room is a large, stacked stone (electric) fireplace with a 50-inch flatscreen TV mounted on it. The TV even has a Blu-ray player and surround sound system, so be sure to plan for a movie night or two during your stay at American Bear Cabin!
Kitchen The open-concept design of American Bear Cabin leaves the living room open to the kitchen and adjoining dining room. So you can keep your favorite TV shows on while you prep and cook inside this cabin’s stylish kitchen. Enjoy dark granite countertops with matching black appliances along with light wood cabinets inside American Bear Cabin. This kitchen also comes complete with countertop appliances like a coffeemaker, toaster, and blender. Plan to stop by a local market like the Apple Barn General Store and pick up Smoky Mountain must-haves like apple butter and apple-strawberry wine, and enjoy homemade biscuits in the cabin on a lazy summer morning. Then sip your glass of locally made wine on your rocking chair porch while the sun sets over the mountains.
Dining Room Connected to the modern kitchen inside American Bear Cabin is the dining room, which offers a wood-and-glass-top table with place settings for 6. The mix of black chairs with an oak-colored tabletop complements the design of the kitchen and offers a pleasant place to enjoy your pancake breakfasts, deli-style lunches, or homemade dinners during your stay. 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 American Bear Cabin. This way you get the best of both worlds—a place to eat with private views of the Smokies and a meal you didn’t have to prepare! Or you can clear the table and set up for family game night!
