Welcome to Bear View, a cozy studio cabin built for two. This one room cabin is set up just for couples.

There is even a loveseat with electric recliners for relaxing and watching movies together.

Don't be fooled, the small but fully equipped kitchen is just the right size to cook up your honey that special occasion dinner. The King sized bed and oversized shower are both welcoming and relaxing.

    We got engaged in this cabin! The cabin was set up very nicely and the WiFi was amazing. It was a wonderful experience, everyone was nice! Townsend is an absolute gorgeous place to be in. I believe it gave me the full GSM experience more than Gatlinburg! The caverns behind the mountain are a must see! We will use Smoky Cabins again! THANK YOU!!

    Great peaceful location felt nice and cozy. Townsend was the perfect town to get the Appalachian culture and peaceful side of the smokies. Cabin was just what we needed!

    Overall, the cabin was a nice place to stay. My only issue was the bed - time to be replaced, huge "ruts" on both sides.
    Management Response: The mattress is being replaced next week. Thank you and I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay.

  • - 4/19/2019

    Excellent! Beautiful cabin. Everything that we could have needed was there.

    The cabin was great! Comfortable with a gas fireplace Xfinity cable full kitchen nice comfortable bed! The last turn to the cabin is a little tough if you don't have any experience driving in the mountains. Just take it wide and you will get up no problem. It's only 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. And only a few minutes from an entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Forest. We stayed here for our honeymoon my only complaint is that it wasn't longer! If you like Cajun food go to New Orleans Sandwich Company in Gatlinburg you will not be disappointed!

    Bear View was a perfect cabin for two people. We couldn’t believe how simple the check-in and check-out process was. We enjoyed our stay and we will be back again soon!!

    5 stars....we have stayed at Bear View 3 times and have always enjoyed it. I have used other rental companies for our stays in Townsend in the past and have found Smoky Cabins to provide the best customer service.

    Cabin was clean and comfortable. Pool and shelter were very nice. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend Smoky Cabins highly!
  • - 7/25/2019

    The cabin was fantastic. We enjoyed the very nice porch that looks out through the trees. The bed was very comfortable, and the fireplace was a great way to shake off the early morning chill. Our complements to you for stocking the kitchen with sufficient plates, glasses, and cookware to really be able to cook meals in the cabin. We had a great stay and look forward to coming back.

    Beautiful place to stay! My husband and I spent a long weekend in this cabin and truly enjoyed our stay. As a few others have mentioned, we did struggle to get up the hill in our small suv (good tires, but not 4 wheel drive). If you stick to the left it seems to help avoid the spot in the road that has eroded some. This would NOT deter us from coming back. This place is fully equiped and well kept. We will be coming back!

    We loved the cabin! It was perfect. It was rather chilly and the fireplace was our favorite part. It was nice to sit back and relax because we really needed it! We will stay again!

    We had a wonderful time in this incredibly cozy cabin! It was the perfect size for just the two of us. We loved the gas fireplace and the hot tub. Everything was decorated for Christmas which added to the ambiance. We are already planning our trip for next year!

    Nice little cabin that is positioned far enough away from other cabins that you really don’t realize they are there, at least with foliage on the trees. May be a bit more obvious in the winter months. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to cook and there is a decent grocery store (IGA) nearby. The grill and hot tub work fine as does everything else in the cabin. The bathroom is clean and maintained and the bed is comfortable. High speed internet and cable TV are nice. The location is a perfect mix of seclusion and convenience. 10 min to the park, 25 min to Cades Cove, 30 min to Gatlinburg then 20 min to Maryville in the other direction. There are a few decent places to eat in Townsend but be advised at after 8 pm the options are slim and Maryville is the closest place with a decent selection. The hill to the cabin can be intimidating if you don’t have experience but it should be doable unless you are driving a Ferrari (or any low car). (We watched a big Propane delivery truck make it up and down.) There is a security camera on the front of the cabin and several other cameras in the complex so we didn’t feel uncomfortable leaving a couple very expensive bikes out on the porch for 5 days. The decor was ok but a bit cluttered for our taste. Would have been nice to have the space on the microwave stand for our food supply rather than a bunch of decorations. Only place for dry food is on the small counter. A couple very minor maintenance items but nothing to complain about. Overall we would probably stay in this cabin again.

    It's a nice little cabin and was clean and comfortable for the most part. Kitchen was well stocked, fire place is nice, TV and internet was good, the grill works great, the bed is very comfortable. Nice place for 2 people.

    Great cabin! Exactly as advertised. Kitchen is well stocked for any type of cooking/grilling/baking you may want to do.
