It’s especially magical at night, in the silvery glow of the moonlight.Bring your swimsuit - Because Artistic Mountain is part of the Black Bear Falls Log Home Community, when you stay here you can take advantage of the resort’s amenities, which in the summer include heated adult and kids’ swimming pools.Rustic refinement - Elegant furnishings—a leather sleeper sofa, a one-of-a-kind wood bench, a gleaming dining table—help make Artistic Mountain a truly special vacation retreat.It’s all right here - The open plan of the living/dining/kitchen area makes it easy to watch the big game while you’re cooking or to grab a snack while you’re playing Uno at the dining table.Hidden conveniences - Tucked behind those doors are a washer and a dryer, so you can pack light and maybe even return home with a suitcase full of clean clothes.Dine in style - There’s plenty of room for everyone to gather around the dining table, whether it’s to enjoy a family meal, play Monopoly, or work on a jigsaw puzzle while watching TV.You name it, the kitchen has it - Stainless-steel appliances, pots, pans, tableware, even a dishwasher: The kitchen has everything you need (except food, of course!), whether you’re cooking a holiday feast or microwaving popcorn for movie night.Gather in the game room - With a pool table, an arcade, a TV, and a comfy futon for lounging, the downstairs game room makes a perfect rainy-day or after-dinner hangout.The game room sleeps 2 - The futon in the game room opens up into a bed for 2.

Go ahead—you are on vacation, after all!Let the fan lull you to sleep - The soft breeze and gentle hum of the ceiling fan practically guarantee you’ll fall right to sleep.A bathroom for each bedroom - Because each bedroom has its own bathroom, everyone will be able to get ready to start the day without waiting on line to use the shower.Kick back and relax - The covered front porch looks out toward the mountains. The rocking chairs and beautifully carved bench provide perfect perches for taking in the view.Dine on the deck - For a true Smoky Mountain meal, cook some trout—maybe fish you reeled in yourself from a nearby stream—on the charcoal grill, then feast at the deck’s picnic table. Everything tastes better out in the fresh air!The great outdoors - You can enjoy meals with a side order of sunshine when you dine at the picnic table on the lawn or the table on the deck.A perfect location - Despite its bucolic setting, Artistic Mountain is just minutes from the bright lights of downtown Gatlinburg, with its restaurants, shops, and entertainment.Simply breathtaking - The view from Artistic Mountain is nothing short of stunning.

A beautiful log cabin in an even more beautiful setting, Artistic Mountain has even more going for it besides its good looks. The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom retreat includes an outdoor hot tub, an indoor jetted tub, a pool table, and free access to a swimming pool in the summer. All that, and dogs are welcome too!

As part of the Black Bear Falls Log Cabin Community, Artistic Mountain is located close to everything Gatlinburg has to offer. Downtown, with its wealth of restaurants, shops, and attractions ranging from an aquarium to mini golf, is roughly 5 minutes away. Just slightly farther are Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area; the Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop, an 8-mile trail of galleries, studios, and shops; and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can hike, bike, and ride horses among wildflowers, waterfalls, and wildlife. What’s more, you’ll have access to the Black Bear Falls clubhouse and, in the summer, its heated adult and kiddie swimming pools.

The convenience of Artistic Mountain’s location is rivaled only by the gorgeousness of its views. From the main floor’s expansive porch and the lower level’s deck, you can look out over dense woodlands to the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s tough to choose the best spot for listening to chickadees greet the sunrise or for stargazing as whip-poor-wills sing their lullaby: Perhaps it’s the porch rockers, or maybe the picnic table, also on the porch and large enough to accommodate the whole gang for dinner. Or maybe it’s the lower deck’s spacious hot tub… yes, the outdoor hot tub definitely has our vote!

The interior is nearly as lovely as the views. When the stone-surround gas fireplace is lit, the knotty-pine walls, ceiling, and floor take on a golden glow. The great room’s leather sleeper sofa is wonderfully sumptuous, whether you’re sitting on it to watch TV or converting it to a bed for 2. There’s plenty of space to play with the kids, kick back and surf the web (Artistic Mountain has free WiFi, of course), or stretch out for a nap.

The roomy dining table is positioned near the French doors to take full advantage of the view. And whether you enjoy your meals indoors or out—in addition to the porch picnic table there’s a table out on the lawn—you’ll appreciate having a modern, fully equipped kitchen in which to cook. You can barbecue outside as well, on the charcoal grill.

After dinner, head downstairs to the game room for our favorite kind of workout: a game of pool. In addition to a full-size billiard table, the game room has its own TV with DVD player and an arcade. There’s a futon too, which opens into a bed for 2. We have a feeling the kids will want to sleep there—who wouldn’t want to have an arcade in their bedroom?

The cabin has 2 “proper” bedrooms as well, one on each floor for maximum privacy. Both bedrooms feature a lofty king-size bed, a TV with DVD player, plenty of storage, and a bathroom. The main floor’s bedroom has one added perk: a jetted tub in its bedroom. Slip away for a soak; you’ll feel as if you’re in a private haven within the retreat that is Artistic Mountain.

One recent guest noted, “We could have just stayed in the cabin for the whole trip and been happy”—that’s how’s comfortable, welcoming, and amenity-packed Artistic Mountain is. Whether you’re coming to ski, hike, visit Dollywood, or simply revel in the beauty of the Smoky Mountains, you’ll love having Artistic Mountain as your home base—and we look forward to having you visit!
