Black Bears in Gatlinburg Tennessee

We all love to think of the black bears as cute and cuddly.. Like yogi the bear or Winnie the pooh right? Well they might look cute but we really do not recommend hugging them. Just like people, they need their personal space. They just happen to need a lot more! To help you get to know these majestic creatures a little better, here are a few facts that you would otherwise only know from a little chat from the bears themselves!

The bears do not all look the same! “Black Bears” can actually vary in color from black, to light and dark brown, and to an almost cinnamon color. The can reach up to around 6 feet in length and from the ground to their shoulder they can be somewhere around 3 feet. The female bears are generally smaller. When a bear is born it will usually weigh around 7-12 ounces, once it reaches adulthood it will weigh 200-400 pounds or more! The bears generally live between 8-12 years. However, bears that are considered troublesome live only half as long. There are some bears such as the ones in Gatlinburg TN that have lived to be 20 years old or more!

The bears used to inhabit most of North America. Due to obvious problems, such as humans and loss of habitat the bears are now confined to wooded areas and dense brush land.

Most bear-ly Activity happens in the spring and summer usually during the early morning or late evening. The mating season for the bears is summer and during that time they may have more than one mate. With the onset of winter the bears will begin choosing a denning site. These are usually a hollow logs, caves or where ever there is adequate shelter. The bears do not really hibernate, they merely enter a stage of elongated deep sleep. If a bear is disturbed or if there is a stage of warmth the bears may come out of that sleep and leave the den for a short period of time. During the winter sleep the mother may give birth to anywhere from one to five cubs. The mother and her cubs will leave the den in the early spring. These cubs will stay with the mother fro somewhere around 18 months or until she mates again.

These mother bears are extremely protective of their young. When the mother bear feels that the cubs are in harm she will warn with growls, snorts, blows, and the snapping of jaws.

I hope that this helps you understand bears better. You now understand a few of the characteristics that they portray. Now, you will be protected, yet still in awe of these magnificent creatures.
Lasty, when renting one of your Gatlinburg cabins, please place all food in trash cans. Also, please never purposely leave trash outside to attract the bears. They are to unprodictable and dangerous.
Remember, most of all, enjoy your stay in Gatlinburg TN.

Finding the perfect cabin for you!

O.K. So you have decided to go on vacation. You have even decided to go to the Smoky Mountains. So just hop in the car and go right? WRONG! There is so much more to your vacation that you probably haven’t even thought about. Like for instance where would you like to go? How about Gatlinburg TN or Pigeon Forge TN? Would you like to be right in downtown Gatlinburg or high above the bustle of the city? Then it has to, at some point occur to you of who you want to bring. The number of people you bring not only affects which cabin you have but also your price and also narrows down your choices. Sleeping arrangements also play a big part in which cabin rental you choose. Just because a cabin sleeps the right number of people doesn’t mean that it is the right arrangement. Eight bunk beds would not exactly be right for four elderly couples just as four full beds might not fit right with a large group of teenagers with an odd assortment of genders.

O.K, so now that we have the necessities out of the way we can start talking about the things that make your Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge cabin special to you. The view usually plays a major part in deciding on a cabin. Would you like to wake up in the morning and look up into the mountains, or walk out in the middle of the day into the shade of dozens of types of trees in the midst of a thick wood? Or maybe you would like to close the door at night on a soft glow from the city lights of Gatlinburg shining up from the valley below. Some choices are just as practical as they are fun. Like which amenities you MUST have. Are you one to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of a violin accompanied by the melodic rhythms of a piano? Then unless you can fit that into your suitcase, you might need a CD player. And what about recreation? Is a pool a necessity? Or maybe a pool table. And as crazy as it is some people even watch a little TV on vacation. Do you need one? Two? One for each person? One factor that usually plays a major factor in cabin rentals is price. You want to know that you are getting what you pay for. So how do you make sure you are getting the best deal? Well that is fairly simple. Call Cabins For You.
