"The Bashful Bear" offers panoramic views of the Smokies from one of the most majestic peaks in Sherwood Forest. It is convenient to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area attractions, restaurants and shopping. As you enter the warm, fully furnished lodge, on the main level you'll find a beautiful stacked stone fireplace flanked by a wall of windows. Enjoy the spectacular views while rocking on the deck or relaxing in the hot tub. Just off the fully equipped gourmet kitchen is a master bedroom with a king size bed, TV and large bathroom with a walk-in tiled shower. A short elevator ride up to the loft reveal...s a second master bedroom with king bed, TV, large bathroom, and huge Jacuzzi tub. Off this bedroom is a cozy game area with pool table, air hockey and foosball, and a loft deck with more fantastic views.
Ride the elevator down to the lower level to enjoy another big-screen TV and 3 other bedrooms (2 with king beds and 1 with queen-over-queen bunk beds), all with their own private bath. Here you'll find another fireplace and deck to reap those peaceful moments in your rocking chair. One more elevator ride down to the lowest level offers a wet bar, 1 more bedroom with private bath and Jacuzzi tub, and the beautiful home theater equipped with your own personal reclining theater chair! Visit with friends and family in front of another fireplace here, or enjoy the bar and deck.

Imagine a marriage in a precious chapel and traveling a short ride to the reception site at a beautiful cabin with a spectacular view. As you travel up the mountain to the reception you see the lights from the four story cabin shining like a beacon. When you arrive at the cabin, guests flow from inside the beautiful living area with a fireplace to the large porch overlooking a magnificent view of the mountains. My daughter wanted a small intimate wedding and reception with close friends and family and that is exactly what she had at the beautiful Bashful Bear. We had 30 guests ranging from 5 to 95 years of age and everyone felt comfortable in the cabin. Ten of us actually stayed in the cabin and were able to do all the preparation for the reception right there. The catering company easily worked around the large kitchen preparing the food. Earl and Patti were amazing in helping us with every detail as we prepared for the wedding. They could not have been kinder with their assistance and time. The pictures are exactly what you will experience at the Bashful Bear. The beds were super and everything was clean. The floors are beautiful, the rooms comfortable and attractively furnished but the very best is the view, the view. Although you are only minutes away from great attractions for the children, you feel as if you are in a secluded mountain resort. I liked the fact that the resort is not so built up and overcrowded so you feel as if it really is a get a way. Our time at the Bashful Bear will be a treasured memory our family will have forever. We just can't wait to go back

It was a super experience. We had 8 adults aand 7 grandchildren. All fit very comfortably in this Teriffic mountain home. All accomodations were special and the view was amazing of the mountains.
We had Oone problem with the a/C on level 2. The problem was quickly fixed and all else went well.
Great visit, beautiful views

What a stay! We really enjoyed ourselves. Even the teen-agers said they had a good time! The views are awesome. Very convenient to Gatlinburg, but far enough away to enjoy that 'mountain' experience.
