A one-bedroom log cabin within the gated Hidden Springs Resort, Bear Escape is ideal for a romantic getaway or a vacation with one or two kids. Not only is it conveniently close to Dollywood and other local attractions, but it also has a pool table, a hot tub and more to keep you entertained right on the premises.

To see why Bear Escape makes an idyllic honeymoon destination, you need only to step into the bedroom. The log-style furniture, wood-planked walls and floor, and sloped ceiling give it a fairy-tale charm, while the king-size bed provides five-star comfort. The room’s gas fireplace will warm up the space as you watch a movie on the flat-panel TV. A door opens directly onto the deck so that you and your special someone can linger beneath the stars before snuggling under the covers or enjoying a soak in the bedroom’s jetted tub.

If you prefer to do your soaking outdoors, you can step into the deck’s hot tub. The combination of steamy bubbles and cool mountain breeze is especially restorative after a day on the slopes or the hiking trail. The deck has rocking chairs as well—a mountain-cabin must-have—and a bistro table for dining outside among the sunshine and birdsong. Because Bear Escape looks out onto lush woodlands, you’re sure to be serenaded by wrens and warblers in the morning and whip-poor-wills at night.

Back inside, you’ll find a dining table that seats four guests and a kitchen fully equipped with appliances, cookware and tableware. There’s even a dishwasher, because why scrub plates when you can be lazing in the hot tub? Bear Escape has a charcoal grill outside too. Doesn’t everything taste better when cooked in the open air?

The dining table is adjacent to the beautifully furnished living area, which has its own gas fireplace. You can bask in its warmth from the roomy recliner or the roll-arm leather sofa, which opens into a queen-size bed. If you’re vacationing with the kids, they’ll be delighted to sleep here, especially once they spy the flat-screen TV and the full-size billiard table.

Bear Escape’s other amenities include free Wi-Fi, cable TV and a washer and dryer—not only can you pack light, but you can also return home with a suitcase full of clean clothes for a change. Don’t forget to pack your bathing suits, though! When you stay here you have free access to Hidden Springs Resort’s indoor heated pool, which is just a short stroll from the cabin.

While all of the above are great reasons for staying at Bear Escape, we can think of at least one more: the convenient location. The cabin in less than 10 minutes from Dollywood, Dollywood’s Splash Country, Parrot Mountain and Garden and a few of Pigeon Forge’s most popular attractions. Drive for a few minutes more, and you can be at the Titanic Museum, Gatlinburg Golf Course, go-karting, dinner theaters and restaurants galore. Even the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a true must-visit, is less than a half-hour away.

Bear Escape has it all: charm, convenience and unexpected luxuries. Go on, treat yourself to the getaway you deserve, and book your stay today!
