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 motorcycle-friendly cabin with space for up to 7 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 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!

Living Room
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!

Dining Area
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.

Rec Room
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.

Outdoor Spaces
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 propane 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!

Reviews for Bear Claws

  • "My wife and I want to leave an honest review that is helpful to future guests to bear claws cabins. Staff: Although we never met any of the staff in person the registration process and communication with the staff was quick and easy. Location: The cabin is off the beaten path, but you do hear road noise, and theres also a chainsaw carving place nearby and occasionally you can hear them at work, so there is a little noise but nothing that would be considered bothersome. Cabin: it is cute! Remember to bring your own extra blankets and pillows, AND ALUMINUM FOIL! They supply all cookware, but you will need the basics; coffee filters, laundry detergent, etc. They give you a little tote bag with lots of goodies, DONT BE LIKE US, we waited until the last minute to actually go through it! The spiral staircase while beautiful is very narrow and makes climbing with luggage a task, the jacuzzi tub in the master wasnt working upon arrival, but we never planned to use it. Theres also a trick to bathing: one faucet in use at a time, otherwise there is no water pressure, but it is a CABIN, it's exactly what you should expect. All in all we had a wonderful stay and would readily recommend this to friends and family."
