Sleeps 4


Located in beautiful Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, this charming and cozy 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom cabin for up to 4 guests is a peaceful retreat from busy days. After you’re done exploring along the Parkway, touring the Rocky Top Wine Trail, or playing at Dollywood, head back to the pet-friendly Bear Bottom Grotto just minutes away for some rest and relaxation. You'll especially love the treehouse feel as you relax outside in the one-of-a-kind hot tub grotto, complete with tree-studded views.

In the bedroom, spread out in a king-size bed at night. It’s perfect for a romantic weekend as a couple or for your own space when you’re traveling with the kids. Before you head to bed, climb into the heart-shaped jetted tub to unwind! This completely secluded cabin (no other cabins in sight) will give you that getaway you’ve been seeking! There’s also a TV in the bedroom, so you can fall asleep watching a movie or late-night show.

The living room features a sleeper sofa for extra guests, along with wireless internet that makes it easy to stay connected (if you want) or to check out our blog to see what’s happening in the area. The big screen TV is great for unwinding, or you can treat yourself to a nice bath in the heart-shaped indoor jetted tub. The cabin also features a fully equipped kitchen for in-cabin meals and a gas grill for cookouts! Then end your day with a soothing soak in the outdoor hot tub to top it off! 

Living Room
Walk into the cozy living room space — featuring hardwood floors and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace — and settle in for total relaxation at Bear Bottom Grotto. Stretch out on the sofa (doubles as a sleeper) with a glass of wine on the coffee table and your favorite DVD playing on the big screen TV. Light the gas fireplace on chilly eves with a mug of hot cocoa and a romantic novel in the armchair. And enjoy morning chats in comfort with wooded views through the windows and coffee from the nearby kitchen at the start of every day.

Updated and modern, the fully equipped kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, pots and pans, dinnerware, silverware, glasses, and plenty of tools for whipping up homemade meals in a flash! Store fresh ingredients in the fridge and sweet treats in the freezer, fix hot breakfasts on the stove and savory dinners in the oven, brew a pot of joe whenever you please, and warm leftovers in the microwave. Best of all, there’s a handy dishwasher to clean up the messes, so you can enjoy your vacation without a care.

Dining Area
Just off the kitchen rests the dining area with a wooden table and 4 chic metal chairs. Chat with family and friends while enjoying a tasty meal together here. Guests can also see the living room TV from the table, so you can keep the kiddos entertained while you dine or check out the weather before heading into town. This space is also great for updating your blog, playing a board game from home, or sneaking in a midnight snack.

Loft Bedroom
Ah, after exploring Cades Cove in the national park all day, you’ll be pleased to head to the loft bedroom upstairs — where the heart-shaped jetted tub in the shape of a heart beckons. Run the hot water, add lavender scented bubbles, turn on peaceful tunes, light the bedroom fireplace, and drift away to a world of relaxation before slipping into the soft sheets of the king-size bed. There’s even a mounted flatscreen TV for entertainment, a ceiling fan to keep cool on warm summer nights, and an en-suite bathroom with an open sink area for your convenience.

Outdoor Spaces
Outdoors you’ll find the reason behind the name Bear Bottom Grotto — the hot tub oasis! Step into the custom-built stone grotto with draping plants, fairy lights, a waterfall feature, and bear figures and get ready for a soothing soak in the steamy hot tub. Tree-studded views surround the property, giving you a treehouse feel at this secluded getaway. And there’s even a gas grill and breakfast table so you can cook out and dine in nature.

After traveling along the flat, paved roads, pull up the steep, gravel driveway to the lower and upper parking areas — each with 2 spaces. For guests wanting to avoid the staircase outside, head to the upper parking area with only 5 steps to enter the cabin.

Other Amenities
What’s more, Bear Bottom Grotto is pet friendly! Bring along your furry friends for a Smoky Mountain retreat to remember, playing with toys, cuddling together, and checking out new sights and smells. And the cabin also provides complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi so you can log on during your stay.

Local Fun

Providing that secluded feel yet prime location to super shopping, mountain trails, and tasty restaurants, Bear Bottom Grotto keeps you just minutes (less than 4 miles) from everything Pigeon Forge has to offer!

Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster
Just up the road, board the Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster and adventure down the hill, through the trees, and around twists and turns at your own speed!

The Island
Hang with family and friends at The Island — an entertainment and shopping complex that offers fun and games, food and drinks, plus unique boutiques!

Comedy Barn Theater
