Big Bear Lodge II, 7 Bedrooms, Pool Table, WiFi, Hot Tub, Sleeps 20
Two’s company, and 20 is a party: If that’s your philosophy, you’ll love Big Bear Lodge II. This 7-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom log home can sleep up to 20 people. Whether you’re vacationing with another family (or 2), visiting for a reunion, hosting a wedding party, or gathering for a church or office retreat, you’ll find that this lodge offers plenty of space for everyone to spend time together as well as rooms for enjoying private time.
Each of Big Bear Lodge II’s 7 bedrooms is a suite, with its own bathroom complete with a combination shower/tub. That’s a major plus right there: You won’t have to wait on line for your turn to wash up. Six bedrooms include a king-size bed; the 7th has a pair of bunk beds, so that it can sleep 4 people in all. If you’re traveling with kids, they’ll love making this their private clubhouse; every night will feel like a slumber party! Should you have additional guests, one of the living area sofas opens into a queen-size bed.
All 7 bedrooms include a TV, and 2 of the bedrooms offer additional luxuries: Along with a king-size bed, they feature a fireplace and a jetted tub. These rooms also open onto one of Big Bear Lodge II’s decks. Start your night with a spot of stargazing on the deck before slipping inside to enjoy a languorous soak in the jetted tub amid the flickering flames of the fireplace. Romance is practically guaranteed!
Like the bedrooms, the living area of Big Bear Lodge II boasts lustrous wood-planked walls and rustic yet refined furnishings. Three sofas offer plenty of comfortable seating. Just above the stone-surround fireplace is a flat-panel TV with cable, so that you can watch a favorite show after a day on the go. Another entertainment option is to shoot some pool in the downstairs game room, which has its own full-size table. Even if pool isn’t your game, you’ll still enjoy hanging out in this large space, whether you’re sipping an après-ski drink by the fireplace (the lodge has 4 fireplaces in all), sprawled out on the carpet playing Candyland with the kids, or stretched out on the sofa surfing the web via the free WiFi.
Because Big Bear Lodge II is just 10 minutes from the Pigeon Forge Parkway, you’ll have scores of restaurants to choose from. Especially when you’re with a large group, though, it can be easier (and more affordable) to dine in. Fortunately the house’s dining area can seat at least 10 people at its log-style table and another 4 at the adjacent breakfast bar. What’s more, the kitchen is fully equipped with stainless-steel appliances, cookware, and tableware, plus there’s a charcoal grill outside.
And you’ll want to spend as much time outside as you can. Big Bear Lodge II is set among lush woodlands, with the majestic Smoky Mountains visible beyond the trees. The covered decks are furnished with rocking chairs so that you can kick back and listen to larks and wrens put on a concert. Even better, one of the decks has a roomy hot tub. While any time is a good one to laze among the massaging jets of water, evenings are particularly magical.
As you revel in nature’s beauty, you can easily forget how conveniently close Big Bear Lodge II is to the numerous attractions of Pigeon Forge. Dollywood, Parrot Mountain and Gardens, RainForest Adventures Discovery Zoo, and the Tanger outlet mall, among others, are no more than 10 minutes away. And you can drive to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community, and downtown Gatlinburg in a half-hour or less.
Surrounded by nature’s grandeur and serenity but close to all the action—and able to accommodate a small crowd to boot—Big Bear Lodge II has everything you need for a fun-filled Smoky Mountain stay. Don’t miss out; book your reservation today!
