Bear Cave Haus
Where you'll be
Even if Bear Cave Haus wasn’t so conveniently located, it would still be a delightful place to make your home away from home. Its woodlands setting is a joy to behold—and the cabin’s huge wraparound deck offers plenty of opportunities for doing so. You can gaze out at the towering oaks and listen to the wrens and larks from the deck’s roomy hot tub or while cuddled with that special someone on the porch swing. As you read on a deck chair you can enjoy the mountain breeze rustling through the trees. And you can savor meals out in the fresh air, courtesy of the deck’s picnic table. You can even cook outdoors, on the charcoal grill. If you reel in trout from one of the nearby streams, cook it on the grill for a true Smoky Mountain feast.
You can relish the views from inside Bear Cave Haus as well. The great room has a double-height wall of windows that brings the sunshine and leafy vistas indoors. The room also boasts three comfortable couches, so everyone can gather to watch the big game on the large flat-panel TV with cable and DVD player or warm up by the handset stone fireplace. There’s a full-size pool table as well—it’s almost impossible to be bored when you stay here!
Dining out is often a vacation highlight, but once you see Bear Cave Haus’s dining area and kitchen you might decide that eating in is even more fun. The dining table seats six and is roomy enough to host an after-dinner Monopoly marathon or Scrabble tournament. The open, airy kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, gadgets and tableware you need, whether you’re hosting a Thanksgiving feast or whipping up morning smoothies.
The main floor’s bedroom is both spacious and—thanks to the paneled walls, beamed ceiling and rustic furnishings—wonderfully cozy. Sprawl out on the king-size bed and watch a movie on the flat-screen TV or get lost in a good book before turning off the lights, and in the morning, you’ll be greeted by sunshine and birdsong.
The upstairs suite is just as comfortable. As it’s the only room in the loft, it offers maximum privacy—along with a log-frame king-size bed and a flat-panel TV of its own. Best of all, the suit has a private jetted tub. When you return from a day on the slopes or the hiking trail, you’ll love soothing your tired muscles with a long, lazy soak.
The loft bedroom has its own bathroom, and there’s a second full bathroom on the main floor. The main floor can also sleep another four guests, on two sofa beds in the great room. In all, eight people can spend the night.
When you stay at Bear Cave Haus, you’ll have a blast taking in all of the local attractions and sights. But you’ll also love returning to the comfort, serenity and beauty of the cabin. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? So, make your reservation today, and get ready to make some fabulous memories.

We were skeptical at first, especially after reading some of the reviews. However, we also understood this was a rental cabin in the woods. Yes, whomever did the caulk job around the tub could have done a better job, but everything was in working order and we had a pleasant stay. No complaints whatsoever and we’d rent this place again.

Living room furniture worn out not at all comfortable. Dining room chairs padding wore out. Light out in 1st floor shower. How can you clean a dark shower? Light out in upper bedroom. Jacuzzi jets did not work in upper bathroom. Dirty socks in front bedroom chest.

For sure we will not stay in this cabin again!! There were a lot of issues that made our stay less than acceptable. First of all, if you’re traveling with more than just 2 of you, be prepared for hearing everything upstairs and downstairs due to the rooms not being completely closed off (the upstairs bedroom has a door, but is completely open to the rafters/beams) above. We had seven in our group, so this was awful! People can whisper downstairs and you would hear the entire convo upstairs! Also, the temperature control system is not controllable in the cabin. It’s pre programmed, so during the night, it would go down to 60 degrees and be freezing! Both TVs in the bedrooms wouldn’t come on. We called and a maintenance guy came out and got the bottom bedroom TV going, but the top bedroom TV was missing a cord going to the cable box. He said he’d get it fixed and left. This was Monday. We were there until Saturday. No one came back out even though we called multiple times! Soot from the fire place is making the mantle and TV above it black! The hot tub literally looks like a bear attacked it. The top is ripped and won’t even stay on. The roof is covered with moss and needs replacing! Finally, there are 20 steps up to the cabin. If you have trouble being stable walking, all but 2 steps are missing the anti slip tape! Not safe in rain/snow! Cabin does not look like it was built in 2000! Very run down!

The home is exactly like the photos just a lot of outdated things that should be modernized. TVs were never working, the couch was full of tears and we could not take warm showers longer than 5 min. The hot tub could not exceed a warm temperature. The washer also was not fully functional. I also never received check in instructions so had to call and be on hold with the vacation homes because the host never replied. Do not expect a reply at all, I messaged him days before regarding another concern, I messaged him once we arrived and I still have not received a reply to this day. Beautiful home, beautiful location, but not 5/5.
