It can be hard with all of life’s distractions to find enough time to spend with friends, so why not retreat to cabins in the Smokies for a mountain getaway? You can reminisce over your favorite memories while soaking in the hot tub or use one of our Gatlinburg cabins to make new memories in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or other area attractions. There is plenty of room for everyone and lots to enjoy in our cozy cabins.


Large Cabins in the Smokies Have Plenty of Space for Groups

For a great combination of a warm and comforting place to stay and close proximity to lots of fun activities, check out Life’s A Bear Retreat. This three-bedroom chalet can sleep up to 10, with plenty of space for everyone. Split over two levels, this chalet has three bathrooms, three queen beds, and two futons for plenty of privacy.

Tucked into a lovely spot on Ski Mountain, you may want to spend all your time on the spacious back porch. One corner has a hot tub, which makes a great spot to relax after a long day of hiking, playing games, or shopping. Turn on the jets and enjoy the autumn colors of the trees all around you, or, if you have a wintry retreat in mind, you may be joined by softly falling flakes as snow dusts the mountainside. Your view will be unforgettable no matter the season as your group can see the lights of Gatlinburg at night, the aerial tramway, and ridge after ridge of the Smokies.

The cabin has much to offer inside. Break down the day’s best moments in the comfy living room and turn on the electric fireplace, set in stone with a large hearth. Start a pool tournament in the game room or watch a movie on the television.


Gatlinburg Cabins Are Great for Exploring

Life’s a Bear Retreat is only a little over two miles from the center of Gatlinburg, offering a multitude of opportunities to have fun as a group. One of the best reasons to stay in cabins in the Smokies is the nearby national park. The Smokies offer over 800 miles of hiking trails that take in waterfalls, mountain streams, and too many Instagram-worthy panoramas to count. Plus, access to the Smokies is free (while many companies offer whitewater rafting, bicycling, or other paid tours).

Not an outdoorsy group or stymied by the weather? There is so much to do near our Gatlinburg cabins that you will have no trouble finding plenty of fun. Enjoy one of the zany museums or check out a play or show. There is also minigolf, ghost tours, and all kinds of other entertainment. Shop for Christmas presents, arts and crafts, boutique clothing, and more. And, with many dining options, you can alternate meals out with home-cooked meals in the full kitchen of your cabin.

So, Book Life’s a Bear Retreat and you and friends can forget about life’s stresses in your cozy mountain hideaway!
