Description

Whisk your love away to this elegant and romantic escape tucked among the trees of the Great Smoky Mountains at Bear Elegance. Magnificent vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams let natural light flow into this charming and intimate space. Natural elements throughout complement the modern amenities, and you can add to the romance with a gift basket for the 2 of you. Add relaxing amenities like a sunken outdoor hot tub on a private enclosed deck, a clawfoot tub with its own wood pergola, and an outdoor dining table on a screened-in deck, and you have a wonderful Smoky Mountain escape.

Bear Elegance goes beyond romance, though; it’s a great place to get away by yourself for a weekend or hang out with a friend on a hikers’ retreat. It boasts elegant décor, a double-sided stacked-stone fireplace, a unique bathroom, and conveniences like wireless internet, a big screen TV and DVD player, a fully equipped kitchen, and a gas grill. Sink into the plush leather and suede couch for relaxing movie night screenings on the large flatscreen TV, or enjoy your evening movies from the comfort of your king-size bed with a second large flatscreen on the bedroom’s fireplace mantel.

Nestled among the pines of Mountain Shadows Resort, guests in Bear Elegance are privy to more amenities within the community. Community pool access is fun in summer, an outdoor volleyball court lets you play around, and the wood pavilion boasts picnic tables and cornhole boards. Plus, enjoy your own outdoor spaces year-round. 

Living Room
Natural wood tones balanced by elegant gray stone create an alluring space to unwind with your loved one while lounging on the plush suede cushions of the oversized sofa on laid-back afternoons between excursions in the Smokies. Return from a delicious dinner in Gatlinburg and uncork a bottle of wine to enjoy by a warm fire in the stacked-stone fireplace. Bring your favorite card games from home to play during these evenings or simply pop a movie into the DVD player to enjoy on the large flatscreen TV.

Kitchen
With plenty of kitchen tools and appliances within your reach, easily create those specialty meals during your stay in Bear Elegance to orchestrate divine romantic dinners by candlelight or surprise your special someone with breakfast in bed. The large double sink and dishwasher provide ample space and tools for easy cleanups as well. Bring home leftovers from lavish meals in Gatlinburg to reheat in the microwave as easy midnight snacks while staying up late by the fire. Blend your favorite breakfast smoothies in the blender or pour yourselves freshly brewed cups of your favorite coffee grinds from Coffee & Company in the Village before scenic hikes in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Dining Room
Gorgeous all-wood interiors with mountain motif décor lends you a Smoky Mountain dining atmosphere only a few steps away from your bedroom door. This charmingly simple dining set lets your delicious candlelight dinner take center stage each evening as you dine in your own space at Bear Elegance. With dreamy natural lighting drifting in through the high triangular windows accented by vaulted ceilings, savor every moment of laid-back mornings with nowhere to be – until you’re ready to get out and explore.  

Bedroom
The elegant bedroom in Bear Elegance boasts a gorgeous and ornate four-poster king-size bed facing the double-sided stacked-stone fireplace and flatscreen TV. After unpacking your suitcases into the tall wood dressers and closet, relax on the bed with some daytime TV on the flatscreen or read a few chapters of your favorite book in the warm lighting of the bedside table lamps.

The open-concept bathroom is an elegant touch with beautiful tile flooring that meets the equally gorgeous wood floor. A large walk-in shower lends a spa-like experience, with tile, a bench, and a rain shower head. Just steps away, the luxurious clawfoot tub sits beneath its own wooden pergola. Climb in for a soothing bath before heading back to your lovely king-size bed.

Outdoor Amenities
Step through the double glass doors of your bedroom to your private deck and step into the soothing bubbly waters of the sunken outdoor hot tub surrounded by gorgeous wood paneling and lush Smoky Mountain forestry. On the deck resting beyond the glass doors of the living room, bring your morning coffee to sip and savor inspiring wooded mountain views from the lawn chairs. Once you have prepared your steaks in the kitchen, step through the adjacent glass doors to the screened-in side deck to prepare your dinner to perfection on the gas grill and enjoy a picnic lunch at the outdoor table without the worry of bugs.

On warm summer days, visit your cabin resort’s community pool to soak up some sun and splash around. With an outdoor pavilion and indoor facility that can be reserved, playground, cornhole boards, and other Cabins for YOU properties within the resort, Mountain Shadows Resort is a dreamy locale for a Smoky Mountain destination wedding!

Reviews for Bear Elegance

  • "Loved our stay! Mattress was pretty hard. Need a rail to get into the hot tub. Need curtains on door and kitchen window. Need knob fixed on French door. Other than that, we felt relaxed and had a great time!"

  • "Bear Elegance is fantastic in every way. It’s located right off of Light 3 in Gatlinburg, so great location, clean, well appointed, and beautiful inside and out. The dual sided fireplace and four-poster bed added just the right touch, especially after soaking for hours on end in the hot tub. We plan on returning very soon and will certainly choose Bear Elegance again!"

  • "My boyfriend and I live local in Sevierville and I still choose to rent a cabin in the mountains. This cabin caught my eye on the website in every area and, I booked it instantly. When we got here it was amazing. The tub was awesome, the giant rain shower – wow, and the hot tub was just what I needed. The giant, king size bed was easy to fall asleep in. I felt like a princess in an enchanted cabin. All the little wooden bears are adorable, and we hope to come back one day for a honeymoon or anniversary. This is a perfect cabin."
