Nestled into a hillside overlooking heaven-reaching trees and seasonal mountain views, Bear Hug Cabin is a 4-bedroom, 3½-bathroom cabin rental in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Amenities include a rec room with pool and air hockey tables, a steamy hot tub under a pergola-style awning with fairy lights, and a big screen TV with Blu-ray/DVD player and a stretching stone fireplace in the inviting living room.

Accommodating up to 11 guests, this Gatlinburg cabin rental is an ideal choice for family vacations, trips with friends, or couples’ retreats in the Great Smoky Mountains. You’ll be in a great location near local attractions, shops, and restaurants in downtown Gatlinburg plus minutes from the snowy ski slopes of Ober in winter. After hanging out in the national park, at amusement parks, seasonal events, and shopping centers, return to rest and recharge at Bear Hug Cabin.

Cozy up with a good book in the recliner, sip wine with your friends in front of a crackling fire, slip into the hot tub for a soak, play board games at the dining table, and enjoy fresh mountain air from the rockers or porch swing. At mealtimes, cook in the fully equipped kitchen or toss veggies or burgers onto the gas grill. When you want to relax further, head to your bedroom — each has a TV for added entertainment. 

There’s a mix of 2 kings, 1 queen, 1 twin-over-full bunk, and 1 sleeper in the home. Three of the bedrooms have direct access to a deck with lovely views, and the bunk room has a sofa to unwind. Additional amenities include high speed Wi-Fi to stay connected, a movie library, a flat and paved driveway with parking for 6+, and a washer/dryer. 

Living Room
Playing arcade games at Fannie Farkles or ziplining at Anakeesta will leave you ready to rest for a while in the cozy living room at this Gatlinburg cabin rental in Chalet Village. Check out the serene wooded views through the large window while chilling on the plush sofa with family and friends. Kick back in the recliner with a good book or a glass of wine while relaxing with a crackling fire in the wood-burning fireplace that stretches across an entire wall. 

For more entertainment, plan for movie nights in the living room. There’s a big screen TV, a DVD player, and a Blu-ray player. Switch on the lamps for a cozier setting, lump snacks and drinks onto the beautifully carved coffee table, and settle in for a classic comedy, romance, drama, thriller, or documentary. You can bring your own movies or select one from the movie library in the home.

Up for a snack or 4-course meal? Whip up something tasty for your group in the fully equipped kitchen that features major and minor appliances, dishware, pots and pans, cooking utensils, cutlery, glasses, and mugs so you don’t have to pack much. All you really need are the ingredients and any specialty pots or tools you may need. 

Stew soup on the stovetop, pop a lasagna in the oven, rinse fresh fruit in the double porcelain sink, keep leftovers in the fridge, grab dessert from the freezer, and reheat food in the microwave. You can make a pot of tea to serve and brown bagels in the morning. There’s even a pass-through into the dining area to make things easier at mealtimes in your Gatlinburg cabin. 

Dining Area
Sitting beneath a chandelier is the dining table that’s a classic wood style, fitting for a cabin rental in Gatlinburg. Set the table for family-style dining, with additional seating available in the open living room, including the sofa, recliner, and glider. After the last bite, clear the table for dessert or board games (some provided at the cabin). You can also use the table for homeschooling the kiddos, getting a little work done, or setting up a coloring or crafts station.

Rec Room
Just around the corner from the dining area and living room is the rec room that’s welcoming for lovers of fun. Grab a few craft beers, local wine, or Ole Smoky Moonshine from the kitchen and shoot pool anytime. You can also knock around an air hockey puck for a spell! Between turns or rounds, feel free to sit in the raised chairs and sip your drink or pop a snack. 

When you’re ready to take a nap, get away from everyone for a little while, or hit the hay for the night, you’ll appreciate a large bedroom with a TV and sitting space. There are 4 bedrooms total, and there’s a mix of 2 king-size beds, 1 queen-size bed,  1 twin-over-full bunk bed, and 1 queen-size sleeper sofa. 

As an additional amenity, 3 bedrooms feature direct access to a deck, where you can step out in your PJs and take in the tree-studded or seasonal mountain views in peace. There are also 3½ bathrooms so your group can get ready to paint the town red or head to bed without a hassle.

Outdoor Spaces
Ah, the great outdoors in the Smoky Mountains beckon at this Gatlinburg cabin rental. Wooded views remain year-round, and you can see the mountains peering back in winter. Sip morning coffee, afternoon tea, or evening cocktails in the rockers while taking in the serene scenery. You can fire up the gas grill for a memorable cookout together and hop into the hot tub for soothing soaks after hiking, biking, or horseback riding. 

When you’re ready to head into town for a little while, the flat, paved driveway makes things much easier during your stay. There’s parking for 6+, including room to park a trailer if needed. And there are only a couple steps to reach the front door, which means unloading and reloading the cars won’t be a struggle on this vacation.

Other Amenities
For added convenience, you’ll have full access to high speed Wi-Fi to stay connected as much or as little as you like in the Smokies. Plus, there’s a stacked washer and dryer set in case you want to reuse provided towels and pack light this trip or if you need to get a stain from The Peddler Steakhouse or Crockett’s Breakfast Camp out ASAP. 

Community Amenities
At this Gatlinburg cabin rental, you’ll have guest access to all the amenities within Chalet Village Resort. There are 3 clubhouses with fun things to do for all ages. Swim in the swimming pools with cool water features, play tennis and basketball, take the kiddos to play areas, and keep fit on vacation with workout equipment.
