Secluded. So quiet, you hear the earth begin to speak. A deck that winds around the walls of where the family sleeps. There's warmth around the fireplace; a roaring hot tub pleads. It's faith regained in family dreams. It's BEAR NECESSITIES. Hillside in a treeline, there waits the perfect family cabin for your next great expedition. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin with 2 sleeper sofas sleeps up to 8 people and wakes them to the stillness of peace in the cool breeze of morning. Just in case you need a break from all the rest you'll be getting, you're only miles away from the belly of excitement. Known for exhilarating rides, entertainment, and adventure, both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg have long since waved the green flag. Once you and your family are filled and low fueled, when you're ready to forget about your worries and your strife, head back to BEAR NECESSITIES, reserve it while your family sings: that brings the BEAR NECESSITIES of life!

Mountain Views

by Brian Tewell
This was our 2nd stay in the Bear Necessities cabin. Great views all around us! This cabin is nestled in a wooded area and is very quiet and serene. Short drive into Pigeon Forge. Pet friendly!

This was our 2nd stay in the Bear Necessities cabin. We love the fenced yard and big deck for our dogs. Located in Wears Valley and just a short drive from the Parkway of Pigeon Forge. Very relaxing and quiet area. American Patriot Getaways has an excellent staff. Easy check in/out. Make sure you visit Mountain Brothers General Store. Fried pies are to die for! We will be back soon!

This was a very nice cabin, it was decorated for Christmas which was nice, and it was very clean. The dog fence was a nice touch. If this cabin is in the Christmas Special again we will be staying here again next year at this time. The Fireplace did n ot work, and you had someone fix it that same day, Thank you for that.

This cabin was the perfect cozy getaway. We brought our goldendoodle with us and we loved the fenced in back yard and locked deck so she could go in and out without a leash. It was easy to get to and not too far from pigeon forge. We would definitely stay here again!
