Looking for a fun family retreat or a place to get away with friends for the weekend in the Smokies? Check out Bear Claws, a 1-bedroom + loft, 2-bathroom pet-friendly - and motorcycle-friendly - cabin with space for up to 9 guests in Pigeon Forge. From games to relaxing spaces, this Smoky Mountain cabin will make any vacation memorable!
Spend days at Bear Claws playing with your pup, grilling out, watching movies with the DVD and Blu-ray players, cozying up in front of the electric fireplace, shooting pool and playing arcade games, and relaxing in the rocking chairs on the deck. At night, you’ll find 1 king-size bed, 1 queen-size bed, 1 twin-over-full bunk bed, and 1 futon — plus TVs in every bedroom!
Conveniences make your stay comfortable and easy, with a fully equipped kitchen where you can create homemade meals and snacks, a washer/dryer for refreshing clothes after hikes, and high-speed wireless internet so you can get dinner show tickets ahead of time, keep up with what’s happening downtown, or post vacay pics!
Step into relaxation as you enter the living room at Bear Claws, featuring a high ceiling, stone electric (heated) fireplace, and hardwood floors. Unwind on the futon or glider after your travels or prop up your feet in a recliner after a Smoky Mountain hike. Looking for a little entertainment? Flip on the big screen Smart TV, connected to Amazon Prime/Netflix so you can stream your favs in seconds! And host movie nights with the DVD and Blu-ray players and bowls of buttery delights on the adorable bear coffee table. On cooler evenings, sip cocoa and chat with your bestie or open a classic novel by the cozy fireplace.
Nearby awaits the fully equipped kitchen, boasting all major stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), pots and pans, cookware, cutlery, glasses, and more. Fix hearty family feasts, pop Ole Smoky moonshine in the fridge, brew pots of joe anytime, bake fresh biscuits in the mornings, and reheat restaurant leftovers in the microwave. Best of all, Bear Claws has an open concept so conversations can keep going even while the chef in your group whips up a tasty storm!
Just off the kitchen lies the dining area with a round wooden table for 4. Combined with the living room seating, everyone will have a comfortable place to dine at the cabin. And when desserts are done, clear the table for board game fun provided at the cabin. Versatile to be sure, the dining area is also great for arts and crafts with the kiddos, journaling about your trip, or hopping on your laptop for a browse.
Head up the charming spiral staircase to the rec area in the loft, featuring a pool table and an arcade unit with 70+ games! Chill on the sofa and cheer for the players or join in the gaming fun and shoot a few rounds of pool or beat the highest arcade scores. There’s even access to a deck with rocking chairs, so you can cool off after playing or take a moment alone or with your spouse every now and then.
Time to get cozy and comfy — it’s bedtime at Bear Claws! Relax in the bedroom’s king-size bed, the loft’s queen-size bed or twin-over-full bunk, or the living room’s futon. Each sleeping space has a Smart TV (connected to Amazon Prime/Netflix) for entertainment. And the bedroom even has an indoor jetted tub, where you can light a few candles, play tranquil tunes, and soak in the muscle relaxing water before slipping into the cool bed sheets. There are also 2 full bathrooms in the home to make getting ready for bed or town easy.
Ah, the great outdoors at Bear Claws is where you’ll want to be, taking in the peaceful wooded views. Relax in the steamy hot tub, cook out on the charcoal grill, unwind in the rocking chairs, and sway on the porch swing. Ready to paint the town red? Head only 4 steps down to the flat, paved (motorcycle friendly) driveway with parking for 4 and venture onto flat, paved roads all the way to town — even the drive is easy here!
Bear Claws not only offers fun and comfortable amenities but also provides homey conveniences, like high-speed wireless internet and a washer and dryer. And perhaps the number one feature of this property is that it is pet friendly, meaning your furry family members can come to the Smokies and make memories with YOU!
Only 5 minutes from the Parkway and just over 5 miles to the heart of Pigeon Forge, Bear Claws is a top cabin option for those wanting a true cabin experience without being too far from city conveniences and fun!
