Dog-friendly cabin w/ hot tub, pool table & decks - close to town!

This three-level log cabin, nestled in the trees less than a mile from downtown Pigeon Forge, is an excellent vacation destination for families and friends. The beautifully maintained cabin offers two separate decks (one with a private hot tub) as well as a porch off the kitchen for outside grilling. Each of the king and queen bedrooms has an adjoining bathroom with shower. There’s also a sofa bed in the living room, with another half bath off the kitchen. Curl up in front of the gas fireplace in the living room with a book or watch a movie on one of the four flatscreen TVs. Soak in the hot tub or shoot some pool and watch the game on the screen in the downstairs game room.

What’s nearby:
When you’re ready to leave this relaxing woodland setting, you’ll love that the cabin is less than a mile east of the Parkway in downtown Pigeon Forge, so you’re just minutes away from all the action! The Old Mill District and the Trolley Station at Patriot Park is a 15-minute walk from the cabin. You can ride the coasters at Dollywood (three miles east), walk the halls of the Hollywood Wax Museum (three miles northwest), and round out your day at one of several dinner theaters, music venues, and comedy clubs. Outdoor enthusiasts will also find incredible trails, streams, meadows, and sweeping vistas in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, nine miles south.

We had a great time staying at Thunderbear hideaway. The location was great; we could enjoy the quietness yet not be too far from the city. It was very close to Gatlinburg and to the Factory Outlet Store. The place was cozy and the space was just enough for the 5 of us that stayed there. We were glad to use the jacuzzi and the outdoor grill as well. There was ample electrical outlets in each room so we could charge our phones. The check-in ad check-out procedure was very easy and Vacasa communicates very well with their clients through email and text reminders. I would highly recommend staying there and would return the next time we plan a trip to Gatlinburg.

This was a great place to stay to enjoy a quiet few days away from home. Everything was clean and comfortable, and it's close enough to town to enjoy some time out, but far enough away to seem sort of secluded.
Thomas B. Jun 2020
We truly enjoyed this cabin and the Pigeon Fun the area. The cabin was great for 4 people. Very comfortable beds! I felt like I wash my own bed at home. We will definitely be back!
Danita R. Mar 2020
We enjoyed how close it was to everything. The cabin was very comfy and I really loved all the decor!!
Chuck P. Mar 2020
Great location very clean would recommend to anyone.
A nice place to stay for a short time for small group. The place is very, very clean. We would definitely stay in this cabin again.
Susan D. Jan 2020
The house was smaller than the pictures made it look. Loved the fireplace! Stove burners needed to be replaced. Driveway is STEEP and very tricky parking for two vehicles.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Susan! We have alerted our local property manager that the stove burners need to be checked and replaced as needed. We hope to host you again soon!
Kenneth N. Jan 2020
The home was beautiful with everything we asked for would reccomend this place to anyone!
Sherry S. Jan 2020
The cabin was very nice! It was close to everything but far enough away for privacy. Driveway was a pain, but it is in the mountains. Checkin was very easy. Cabin was very nicely decorated and clean. The reason for a 4 instead of a 5 is The dishwasher is very loud so you have to turn on when you leave to go out, the pool table room is too small to play and table isn’t the greatest. Otherwise great cabin!
Eduardo G. Jan 2020
Ame todo . El único problema fue la Loma qué hay para parquear el carro
Manager response:

the cabin was close to everything and very clean. I loved the décor and convenience to the Island and Tanger Outlet stores. Only bad thing was the super steep driveway.
John S. Dec 2019
It was a great cabin. My family really enjoyed the stay. The only thing that was confusing was the directions In the email are not correct. You do have to turn right on iron circle drive and it turns into Stevens court. We drove around iron mountain road 3 times before just following the gps instead of directions that were sent via email. Other than that we had a great stay.
Manager response:
We are happy you enjoyed your stay! We are sorry you had difficulty with the directions we provided. We will review them and make the proper corrections if needed. We hope you will stay again soon!

The cabin is very nice but not what was told online. There is one king size bed and no room to put your suitcase but ont the bed or on the pool table and there were fleas. The pool table was old balls were chipped and the room was to small for a pool table maybe a air hockey table. And the drive way was bad and only small cars can get in the parking Area only one suv maybe. A few things needs to be updated and addressed 😟😟😟
Manager response:
Thank you for letting us know about your recent stay at Thunder Bear Hideaway. We apologize for the issues you experienced. The cabin has been thoroughly sprayed and all the dishes have been washed, dried and placed in the cabinets. The listing has been corrected to list 1 king and 1 queen bed in the amenities. Mountain parking can be a bit tricky! We look forward to hosting you again.
Nathan R. Oct 2019
Great location and very comfortable stay. Great for couples with pets! Only downside is that one of the sinks was stopped up and the driveway is hard to climb in a car.
Manager response:

Our team can assist in troubleshooting or correcting any issues the guest encounters once alerted to any issues.

We stayed in Thunder Bear Hideaway from Oct. 11th - Oct. 14th and loved it. The location is easily the best feature of this cabin. We have stayed in several different places in the mountains over the years and the convenience was amazing since it was peak season and the traffic was challenging. It was well-appointed, very clean, and included all of the things that were in the pictures and listed online. The small details that I enjoyed the most were the abundance of really nice towels. They are hotel quality and nicer than most that I have used in other rentals. The other detail that I loved were the nightlights in the plugs all over the unit. The small details make the biggest difference to me. The weather was perfect and it was a great long weekend. I would definitely rent this unit again.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously! Everything was very clean. We hope to visit again one day
JENNIFER K. Jul 2019
We are a family of 5. We splurged on this rental due to the 2 full bathrooms and size we needed for the week long trip. Everything was fine except the lower level bathroom ceiling leaked water from upper level shower, toilets, washers...large mold patch appeared in ceiling not 24 hrs. after our arrival. Mopping up water with my bath towels all week was not something I planned on doing during vacation. Hope the problem was corrected for next renters 7/6 week?? Also, the driveway is very steep. If you have mobility issues this will be a problem for you. We enjoyed the hot tub, furnishings and it's a great location - close to everything.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Jennifer. We appreciate you reaching out to our management team to let us know of this issue, and we are happy to report that the leak has been repaired. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
ERIC F. Apr 2019
Not a bad place driveway is a bit steep. But it is close to downtown. Easy to get to everything. A good stay!
Dottie F. Mar 2019
The location was close to lots of activities. The driveway is steep and a little intimidating at first. It would be better for 2 couples rather than 6 people because the other bed is in the living room which prohibited anyone from sitting in the living room when the others were still sleeping. Had everything that we needed for our stay.
Roberts F. Jan 2019
Perfect cabin for our family of six! Five humans and one dog and none of us wanted to leave. Fast wi-fi, pool table, hot tub, and decks and TVs everywhere. We enjoyed the gas fireplace having cozy without the hassle, and a game night in front of the fire. We loved the privacy and quiet location and also the proximity to Pigeon Forge, just a five minute drive to everything. We're rebooking for summer!
Kyle T. Jan 2019
We stayed here for 4 nights and really liked it. The log furniture is great, and the beds extremely comfortable. The King size bed upstairs fills up the room, but it was worth it for stretching out! Having a bathroom on each level was convenient. What I really liked was the accessibility to the Pigeon Forge Old Mill District. My wife and I enjoy walking, and found that it was just 15 minutes down the hill to the Old Mill Restaurant and shops. We will definitely come here again – next time for a Dollywood trip which is like 5 minutes away by car – and maybe we will walk there also to save the $15 parking fee! Oh yeah, the hot tub and pool table were great at the end of the day. We don’t have kids, but I bet the downstairs pool table/ bed room / bath and two TV’s would be a great place for kids to hang out and get away from the adults! The driveway is a little steep but we got used to it.
Laura C. Jan 2019
This cabin was everything we remembered from when we had seen, but not been able to stay in it, on our first visit to Pigeon Forge. With three floors and three very separate outside sitting areas (two decks and a back porch), the cabin feels big, but it's still cozy. All the furniture is very relaxing and comfortable, from the outside swing to the sofa and big chairs in front of the fireplace, and also the mattresses. Everything was clean and cared for. There's a lot to do in Pigeon Forge and the surrounding area in winter so we really loved the cabin's proximity to The Island at Pigeon Forge, restaurants, shopping and attractions. Choosing a cabin can be overwhelming but we definitely hit the jackpot finding this one. Thank you!
Jennifer . Nov 2018
So relaxing! This cabin was the three C's. Convenient, Clean and Cozy. We actually enjoy doing some cooking while on vacation so we were thrilled that the kitchen had plenty of pans, dishes and even a slow cooker.
William B. Nov 2018
We had a great experience. Excellent cabin experience from check-in to check-out! Thunder Bear had comfortable beds, which was really appreciated by all of us. The layout allowed everyone space to hang out, together and also alone. Loved the porch swing in the afternoon sun!
Kathleen R. Sep 2018
Beautifully decorated spacious cabin nestled in the trees above Pigeon Forge. Truly loved the cabin. It was peaceful and offered all kinds of space to enjoy. It's a beautiful cabin and we would gladly stay there again. No street noise. All we heard at night was the rustling of leaves and even an owl, yet we could walk to town during the day, an unexpected plus. Perfect.
Lori T. Sep 2018
Beautiful cabin and outstanding location and surroundings! When we entered the cabin, it was spotless. We stayed in the early fall. For those who rent in the winter months you may want to park closer to the bottom of the driveway as it is a little steep. That added to the feeling of privacy, and we would rent this cabin again anytime. Thank you!
Amy F. Jul 2018
Wonderful experience. This was a super comfortable cabin. It was very close to everything and we enjoyed it very much. There was so much to do in Pigeon Forge but as soon as we walked in the door after a day of being tourists we felt relaxed and at home. Would like to return in fall for the trees.
Carmen Z. Jun 2018
This is a luxurious but homey cabin, close to all the attractions of Pigeon Forge. It was great and I didn't want to leave! I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone and we hope to come back again soon. Watching fireflies from the hot tub was a highlight at night. Thank you!
Hattie K. Jun 2018
Great vacation! Cabin was great for our family of three. My son and husband loved the pool table. I loved the comfy sofa and the shelf of paperbacks! We all loved spending time on the decks and how close we were to PF and the trolley to everywhere else. Weather was perfect for sitting outside.
Michael K. May 2018
Great cabin with separate game room with a pool table so we could play pool late at night and not disturb people sleeping upstairs. Hot tub was great and the wifi never flickered even with five people on their own TVs and devices. Golf course two miles away was exceptional perk and so was great weather.
