Black Bear Lodge
Where you'll be
Enter the great room with soaring ceilings extending up to a lofty landing. You’ll love the charming log-cabin construction, and the grand scale both outside and in will lift your spirits. Make yourself at home on the luxurious leather sofa and relish the view through glass doors and windows lining the back wall of the living room. Find your favorite sporting event to watch on the HD Smart TV with Blu-Ray player. Head to the game room for a round of pool, or let the kids get comfortable on the couch in the media room to watch their own movie.
It’s a joy to cook in Black Bear Lodge’s beautiful and spacious kitchen, where it is easy for multiple people to walk in and out without feeling cramped. Gorgeous natural stone countertops allow lots of space for preparing food and drinks. You’ll find everything you need in the fully stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes, cookware, and other essentials as well as top quality appliances. The kitchen bar is a perfect place to enjoy a casual breakfast or serve drinks while you chat before dinner. Round up your whole group for delicious food and lively conversation around the extra-large dining table!
Decks stretch the entire length of the front and back of the vacation home creating abundant outdoor living spaces that bring you up close and personal with the great outdoors. A cozy covered deck area extends out toward McFalls Branch Falls overlooking the gently-rambling creek below. This amazing outdoor room is fully furnished with a table and chairs, extra seating, a gas grill, even a stone fireplace. The beauty and uniqueness can’t be overstated. It is truly like a national park scenic overlook every time you set foot outside!
The primary suite at Black Bear Lodge is spectacular, with a direct view of the waterfall from every spot in the room! Whether you’re looking for romance or simply peace and quiet, you’ll find it here. Start a fire in the fireplace and stretch out in the king-size bed for a good night’s sleep. Windows covering one whole wall let the filtered morning sunlight gently wake you, and your private balcony is the best spot in the house to greet the day. If you can pull your eyes away from the view, there’s an HD Smart TV where you can watch a movie before you drift off to sleep. A large en-suite bathroom features dual sinks, lots of cabinet space to store toiletries and a roomy walk-in shower. Unwind before bed with a relaxing soak in the garden tub while you enjoy the tree top view.
Black Bear Lodge boasts six bedrooms and seven bathrooms—a perfect arrangement for a large family or group to enjoy privacy and comfort in addition to fun times together. A tranquil downstairs bedroom with king-size bed and view of the falls can serve as a second primary suite. Two more woodsy bedrooms each feature a queen-size bed and charming raw-timber furnishings. Upstairs you’ll find a fun bear-themed bedroom and bath that the kids would love. Imagine it’s a secret cabin hideaway with rustic vaulted ceiling and skylights to let the sunshine stream in! Close by is another peaceful bedroom containing a queen-size bed, vaulted ceilings with skylights, and an en-suite bathroom.
No matter which bedroom they choose, all of your guests will appreciate having their own full bathroom for extra privacy and convenience. Two of the baths feature roomy walk-in showers, the others a tub/shower combination. Plenty of fresh, soft towels are provided for all guests, and every bed will be made up with fresh sheets before your arrival. A large laundry area with full-size washer and dryer makes it easy to make sure everyone has a clean change of clothes everyday of your vacation.

If you rent this cabin in the winter time they need to know ahead of time that there will be NO firewood supplied. We had to drive around on the icy roads to try to find firewood in an attempt to heat the drafty cabin. I understand that a winter storm is out of anybody’s control but I should have been informed that I needed to bring firewood with me because the central heat in this cabin can’t keep up with the leaks around windows and doors.

Everyone loved the cabin and the waterfall view. Bigger than expected. Country drive coming and going to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Definitely off the beaten path but our group of 6 couples loved the whole week and would do it again.

The cabin stay was good. The road up to the cabin was not good road needs work. WiFi needs to be added. Besides that the cabin was beautiful
