This 5,300-square-foot NEW CONSTRUCTION cabin in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, boasts views, space, and awesome amenities for groups! It has 7 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, and space for up to 30 guests, with king-size beds and queen-over-queen bunk beds to accommodate both adults and kids! There are also 2 sleeper sofas for some extra space. You can start the vacation with easy arrivals in the flat, paved driveway before heading inside to cozy but spacious interiors.
Spend cool mountain evenings by the electric (heated) fireplace (one of 8 in the cabin) or fire up the 2 park-style charcoal grills for cookouts on nice days. The cabin has all the conveniences you need for a great stay, including a 65-inch smart TV in the living room — plus a smart TV and a fireplace in each bedroom! The washer/dryer is great for longer stays with a group, and the high-speed wireless internet will be much appreciated by everyone.
You’ll stay entertained at Bigger Bear Views Lodge, too, with an air hockey table, pool table, Multicade, Supercars game, and a 65-inch smart TV in the rec room! And don’t forget the theater room, where every night is movie night — with a 75-inch smart theater TV with 300-watt surround sound and Blu-ray player! Before you head to bed, be sure to climb into the soothing hot tub for a relaxing soak while watching a show on the outdoor TV on the deck. In the morning, grab a coffee and enjoy a breeze on the deck together from the 17 rocking chairs!
While downtown Gatlinburg is less than 2 miles from the cabin - keep you close to the area attractions, restaurants, and shops - you won't have to leave the cabin to enjoy a favorite Smokies sight: wildlife! Many guests have reported seeing bear, wild turkey, and deer from teh cabin!
Looking for even more space for your large group? Bigger Bear Views Lodge sits next door to its "little brother" cabin, Big Bear Views Lodge, a 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom cabin for 22 guests! It's another gorgeous new cabin packed with amenities!
Walk towards the wall of mountain views and enter the charming living room at Bigger Bear Views Lodge. With a 2-toned ceiling, hardwood floors, stacked stone fireplace, and popping red sofas, you’ll feel right at home and in style here. Flip on the 65-inch big screen smart TV for entertainment with snacks on the coffee table or turn on the electric, heated fireplace to set the mountain mood for a good book or cocoa with family.
Say hello to double everything in the fully equipped kitchen! Twice the counter space, stainless steel appliances, cookware, dinnerware, and more await lunch spreads, homemade meals, and midnight munchies. Utilize the open concept to keep convos flowing, the 2 long islands — one with a double sink and the other with bar seating for 5 — for meal prep and serving, and the dishwasher to take care of the messes!
Just off the kitchen rests the dining area with 3 large tables with wood detail and matching chairs and benches. Add the kitchen’s bar seating and living area nearby, and everyone will have a place to dine together every day. And when mealtimes are over, clear the tables for board and card games from home, crafts with the kiddos, and think space for your next blog entry.
Ready to play at the cabin? Head the revving rec rooms — one featuring a SuperCars racing game, pool table, and a pub table for 2, and the other boasting a flatscreen Multicade, air hockey table, plus another 65-inch big screen smart TV with sofa seating! Turn up the tunes and let the game tournament of champions begin…winner chooses the night’s film in the theater room!
Settle in for movie nights on the 75-inch smart theater TV with Blu-ray player and 300-watt booming surround sound! Pop bowls of buttery delight in the kitchen, then head to the private home theater where action scenes, heartfelt moments, jump scares, and fantastical worlds come to life! And with theater-style seating (drink holders included), you’ll feel like you’re at the movies.
When it’s time for bed or you just need a little space and privacy, spread out across 7 bedrooms — each with a smart TV and a cozy electric, heated fireplace. Some bedrooms even offer direct deck access and stunning mountain views! And you’ll find a garden tub in one of the bathrooms, perfect for soaking after a long hike through the national park. There are 5 king-size beds, 4 queen bunks, and 2 sleeper sofas so everyone will have a comfy place to relax and sleep.
The great outdoors at Bigger Bear Views Lodge is inviting and soothing. Sway away your worries and cares in the 17 rocking chairs, unwind in the steamy hot tub with entertainment on the smart TV, and cook out on the 2 park-style charcoal grills! Best of all, gaze upon rolling Smoky Mountain views at every glance. And when you’re ready to play in town, head down 10 steps to the big, flat, newly paved driveway and travel the convenient, flat, paved roads into Gatlinburg. There is overflow parking in front of the cabin at the dead-end cul-de-sac, and it can accommodate bus parking there, just about 100 yards from the parking lot.
Tucked away in the Forrest Springs Community, Bigger Bear Views Lodge offers free high-speed Wi-Fi and a washer and dryer set for your convenience. Post trip photos and videos with ease and keep towels and clothes fresh throughout your stay.
Just 2 miles to Gatlinburg attractions, fine dining, and unique boutiques, Bigger Bear Views Lodge keeps guests close to city fun without losing the cabin experience in the Great Smoky Mountains.
