Welcome family and friends to a memorable cabin stay in Pigeon Forge, TN — at the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom Friendly Bear Lodge! With accommodations for 12 plus homey conveniences and bonus amenities, this 2,000+ square-foot cabin rental is your quintessential pick for getaways with your friends and family vacations. Enjoy community access to a heated, indoor pool year-round through Hidden Springs Resort, relax in a soothing hot tub outside, and play pool and arcade games in the rec room.
This cozy home features an open concept sure to please with hardwood floors and massive floor-to-ceiling windows with woodsy views. Plop on the large, plush sectional for entertainment on the flatscreen TV or recline by the electric, heated fireplace with a good book in one hand and a steaming mug of joe in the other. Meals, drinks, and munchies are always close by in the fully equipped kitchen, with the dining area ready for quality time together any time.
After playing at amusement parks, shopping until you drop, and eating to your heart’s content in town, return to Friendly Bear Lodge for wine sips in the outdoor rocking chairs, relaxing baths in the indoor jetted tub, and cozy cuddles in a king-size bed. You’ll find 3 king bedrooms here with 2 twins in the last bedroom. And don’t forget to take advantage of the washer and dryer as well as the high-speed wireless internet!
Whoa is what you’ll be thinking as you open your cabin door to the huge living room windows with a high ceiling, large sectional, flatscreen TV, and electric (heated) fireplace with stone embellishment. Step into your home suite home — Friendly Bear Lodge! Drop your bags, head straight for the comfy couch (first one there gets the corner seat!), and soak in the enchanting trees with everchanging sky views. When ready, grab a few snacks from the nearby kitchen and pop on the TV for a bit of entertainment. Better yet, hop in the recliner with your favorite e-book and enjoy a mountain read by a dazzling fire.
Mere feet away rests the fully equipped kitchen, perfectly suited for all your meal-prep needs. Fix hearty breakfasts, set out lunch spreads, try out Grandma’s secret recipes for dinner, and whip up tasty midnight treats in no time with the stainless-steel appliances and provided cookware, dinnerware, cutlery, and glasses. There’s even an island for extra counter space with bar seating for 3, where the kiddos can help decorate freshly baked sugar cookies or the adults can lend a helping hand and conversational support.
Take a few steps over and you’ll bump into the dining area, featuring a large wooden table with 10 cushioned chairs. Enjoy indoor picnics, family meals, and board game fun (brought from home) with your besties. Being open to both the living and kitchen areas, this dining space is versatile and communal, great for keeping conversations going, finding a good work space, or simply keeping an eye on rambunctious kiddos.
Get ready to play and win in the rec room downstairs! Beat the highest scores on the Multicade unit, show your kids who’s boss at pool, and sprawl out on the large sectional in the media space, which features a flatscreen TV. Here you’ll also find pub seating for 3, perfect for kicking back a cold one or two with friends while awaiting your next turn in the game tournament.
At night, it’s time to unwind and drift to dreamland at your cozy Pigeon Forge cabin rental. Opt for the master suite on the entry level with a king-size bed, en-suite bathroom, and an indoor jetted tub! Or choose from 3 additional bedrooms on the lower level: 2 harbor a king-size bed while the other boasts 2 twin-size beds. To keep everyone entertained, each bedroom also furnishes a flatscreen TV. And let’s not forget the 2 queen sleepers in the home, which boosts the possible number of guests to 12.
Ah, there’s nothing quite like soaking in an outdoor hot tub at your Pigeon Forge cabin with fresh Smoky Mountain air and wooded views to keep you company. On the entry-level deck, you’ll be pleased to find many rocking chairs and even a picnic table. Rock your worries and cares away with a cup of joe outdoors every morning, bring your sketching tools into nature as you draw your next masterpiece in serenity, and feast on delectable treats while listening to your friend’s best stories. There’s also a charcoal grill out front, great for cookouts at the cabin that really bring out that Smoky flavor (wink). And when you’re ready to paint the town red, you’ll need only venture 3 steps down to the flat, paved driveway with parking for 2-3 vehicles.
Located in Hidden Springs Resort, Friendly Bear Lodge gives you full (and free!) access to the indoor, heated pool, where you can splash, swim, and wade without a care no matter the season! And the best part is it’s only a short walk away from your Pigeon Forge cabin rental. Does this cabin provide anything else? Of course!
