Need to get away for a bit? Head to Gatlinburg, Tennessee, in the scenic Great Smoky Mountains for a cabin stay full of relaxation and time spent with family and friends. This 2-bedroom, pet friendly cabin has 2 bathrooms and space for up to 6 guests across 1,000+ square feet of space. From partial mountain and wooded views to the conveniences of home, your Bearfoot Bungalow has what you need for a memorable stay.
On days in the cabin, unwind in front of the big screen TV, keep up with what’s happening in the area via the high-speed internet in the cabin, or just hang out as you chat and catch up. Mornings start with a cup of coffee on the large front porch, and evenings end with a relaxing soak in the outdoor hot tub.
For easy mealtime, the cabin boasts a fully equipped kitchen where you can make snacks, drinks, and more. Each bedroom has its own TV, and you’ll find 1 king-size bed, 1 queen-size bed, and 1 sleeper sofa for guests. The cabin also has a washer/dryer for your convenience, along with community pool access in the Big Ridge Mountain Resort for summertime fun!
Flowing with an open concept, the living area at Barefoot Bungalow encourages relaxation with every step as you head for the beautiful woodsy and partial mountain views streaming inside through the wall of windows. Take a load off on the plush sofas (one doubles as a queen sleeper) with entertainment on the big screen TV and snacks on the coffee table. It’s a cozy space to chill out with a glass of wine in the evenings or sip a cup of joe in the mornings. There’s also a reading lamp, perfect for the late-night readers in your trip crew, and a plush rug to keep toes warm in cooler months.
Take a short stroll along the multi-colored floor to the fully equipped kitchen with stylish blue cupboards, funky tile countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. Keep fresh ingredients in the refrigerator, cook hot breakfasts on the stove, pop brownies in the oven anytime, brew Colombian blends in the coffeemaker, and let the dishwasher clean up! There’s even a rolling cart, great for serving in the dining area or moving items around the kitchen as needed, plus a huge sink with large window so you can prepare ingredients with nature just a glance away.
Ready to dine in the trees? Head for the dining area with table, benches, and large windows framing the Smoky Mountain forests. Mealtimes are always better at Barefoot Bungalow as you laugh, swap stories, and reconnect with loved ones. This space is also wonderful for setting out a board game from home, hopping on your laptop for a bit, or taking in the scenery with a snack.
Each featuring a flatscreen TV for entertainment plus direct deck access, the 2 bedrooms at Barefoot Bungalow impress. The master offers a king bed with private en-suite bathroom that features a large tiled shower with window, while the other bedroom harbors a queen size bed plus easy access to the second full bathroom in the home. And with a queen sleeper in the living area, up to 6 guests can stay comfortably here.
Step onto the expansive front porch and get ready to enjoy the great outdoors at the semi-private Barefoot Bungalow. Slip into your swimsuit for a soothing soak in the hot tub hut, prepare succulent steaks, juicy chicken, and crisp veggies on the gas grill, dine at the outdoor breakfast table, and hang out in the cushioned seating area with a local bottle of red. Feel nestled in the trees as you take in the partial mountain views and watch the birds frolic in the canopy here. And when you’re ready to paint the town red, head to the parking area for 3-5 vehicles and take the paved, curvy (and steep) driveway towards Gatlinburg.
In addition to its featured amenities, Bearfoot Bungalow is a pet friendly Gatlinburg cabin, which means Fido can come along for your Smoky Mountain vacation! Just imagine all the tail wags, kisses, and cuddles you’ll get when you bring your furry friend with you to your pet friendly cabin retreat.

And if you’re visiting during summer months, get excited to splash in the community pool through Big Ridge Mountain Resort!

"Girls trip was a success! The bungalow was super cute, up to date, clean, and it has a good Mountain View, and the beds were comfortable! The only thing we had a problem with was the hot tub, it wasn’t as warm as we thought and it barely had enough water in it to cover the jets. Other than that great place to stay!"

"Our stay was great! Perfect view, beautifully decorated. No complaints"
"We stayed in Bearfoot Bungalow for the New Year holiday. The cabin was modern and clean. Very spacious and well stocked with supplies. The beds were super comfortable and we had a great view. One of the bathrooms was as big as a normal room. Hot tub was a little on the cooler side and there were only showers instead of a bathtub, which made it a little hard to give our daughter a bath, but this cabin will be at the top of our list to re-book. Customer service was great too: friendly and easy to talk to. We had a great time."
