Little Bear Chalet is a beautiful log cabin in a peaceful setting. A few cabins can be seen from the deck, but you still have plenty of privacy to enjoy your stay. Paved roads bring you all the way to the cabin, but the parking area is gravel. Two steps up and your own the covered part of the deck that leads to the entrance. The deck continues on around to the front where you can take in the amazing mountain view along the way. Several rocking chairs line the front, providing a place to sit back and enjoy all this area has to offer. A whimsical wooded area out front will leave you smiling, as you notice faces on the trees smiling back at you. The long range views of the Smoky Mountains here are ever changing, as the blue sky fills with clouds and then fades away again, the sunlight casts a wide spectrum of colors and shadows across the mountains, giving a different look to the view all through out the day. The far side of the deck has a hot tub. Sitting in the warm massaging waters and sipping a glass of wine make this a special place to retreat. The deck also has a gas grill, ideal for grilling juicy steaks for dinner. The side yard has a swing that sits near the fire pit. Roasting marshmallows over a crackling fire and listening to the crickets in the evening will add to the calmness this cabin brings.
The entry brings you inside to a warm and welcoming cabin. This cabin features wood tones, chalet windows, cathedral ceilings, and little black bears scattered all through out the home. An open floor plan joins the kitchen, dining, and living room. This cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway for 2, but comfortably suits 4. The kitchen is fully equipped and you will find everything you need to make your favorite recipes, The unique handcrafted red cedar and aspen log table allows you to take in the views as you dine, with large windows bringing the outdoors in. Comfortable leather furniture in the living room lets you enjoy a stone gas fireplace, satellite TV, and the great views. Off from the kitchen there is a comfortable queen size bedroom. You will feel like you are being pampered when you snuggle down into the soft bedding at night. A full bath with tub is across from this room, and a washer and dryer hide behind a closet next to the kitchen.
A set of stairs take you up from the living room to the open loft. A king size bed fills this master suite in the loft area. A very romantic room to share together. The mountain views can be enjoyed through the front chalet windows while still snuggled in bed. Adjacent to this room is a full private bath with shower and jetted tub.
