Dancing Bear Lodge is a five Bedroom, three and a half Bathroom Luxurious Cabin with the absolute best, layered mountain views that you can experience in the Smokies. You will be only minutes to Bryson City, Cherokee, Maggie Valley, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park as well as 44 miles to Gatlinburg and one hour from Asheville. 

The first thing you will notice when you pull into our covered parking is what caused us to fall in love with Dancing Bear Lodge… The absolutely stunning views. They are truly the best we have ever seen. You feel at peace when you sit on the porch or in the hot tub and stare out at the mountain views as you hear the river in the valley and the birds in the trees. It's what made us fall for Dancing Bear Lodge when we first visited. 

As you venture inside, you will be impressed with the attention to detail. We did our very best to think of everything you may want when staying with us. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to cook a meal for your family and guests. Coffee lovers will absolutely love staying with us (You may experience a little bit of coffee envy about the coffee bar, be warned!). You will find two different whole bean coffees with a coffee grinder to grind them to your specifications. Then you will notice the french press, a regular coffee pot, a Keurig machine, and my personal favorite.. a Nespresso machine for excellent coffees and espresso shots! After you brew your coffee you can prepare it however you like best. We stock four different syrups, three types of creamer, sugar in the raw, equal, splenda, and honey sticks to make your coffee even better than at home! 

After passing through the kitchen and dining room you can venture down the hallway to the two top floor Owner's Suites. They each have King size beds and their own bathrooms. You'll enjoy the spa sheets and our favorite quilt sets on each bed as well as the great views from the bedrooms. 

Downstairs from the main living room, you'll find a striking two-story game room. The game room has a pool table, a full-sized arcade-style basketball game, a large poker table(with eight barstools), two arcade cabinets and our second living room adorned with a stone fireplace. Around the corner of the breakfast bar you will find an eat-in kitchen as well as the door leading to the lower porch with the hot tub. Down the hall from the eat-in kitchen, you will find the two downstairs bedrooms. One features a third king bed and the other features a queen bed, which share a spacious and private full bathroom. 

The "Bear's Den" (5'6" ceiling height) is tucked away halfway up the staircase and includes one queen bed and two twin beds. This room is perfect for the kids in the group or for extra beds for any other guests. It is setup with a kids teepee, a chalkboard, plenty of books and games to play with, as well as a TV with a Roku to stream their favorite channels. 

Outside, enjoy the view stars and roast marshmallows in the large fire pit. You'll love the feeling of privacy while still feeling close enough to others to feel safe while staying at Dancing Bear Lodge.
