About the property

Beautiful Private Gated Community of Shagbark 1300 Beautiful Acres Pet Friendly

The Hiking Bear is a place you can relax with your loved ones in front of the fire or out on the deck enjoying the nature. This luxurious cabin is located in a gated community of Shagbark all the cabins are spread apart to maximize privacy, just minutes from the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and all the main attractions. This cabin offers peace and serenity which will leave you feeling rested and restored. The fully equipped kitchen and gas grill will complete any culinary desires you may have. Enjoy a comfy night cuddled up, taking in the warmth of the double sided gas fireplace. The master suite also boasts an in room Jacuzzi. Enjoy the outdoors and do a little nature watching from the comfort of your own deck rocking chairs or take in the sights and sounds of a peaceful evening in the outdoor Hot tub. Being in the Smokies is a great place anytime of year, you can enjoy the nature by Hiking the trails or rafting the river or tubing your days away. We love this area for all the things it has to offer. Cades Cove is near by and a great place to take a hike and take in all the Beauty of the Smoky Mountains. And since we are pet friendly you don't have to leave your dog at home either.

We want you to feel at home whether its just you and your honey or if you bring the little ones there is room for 4 to sleep and enjoy. There is also a community pool and tennis court you can get out and play or cool off in the pool.

There is level parking and you are only about 10 minutes from the main Pigeon Forge Parkway, close enough to be part of the action but far enough to enjoy the quiet side of the mountains in Wears Valley. We hope you enjoy the Hiking Bear.

About Jennifer Murphy

We started coming to the Smokies in 2006 and have come back every year since. We finally decided this is where we want to spend our retirement. But we still have some years until that happens so we decided to buy a cute cozy cabin in the community of Shagbark. With the hopes of staying and sharing it with others until we make the big move for good. We love everything about Tennessee & are so happy to own a little piece.

Jennifer Murphy purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jennifer Murphy chose Sevierville

We chose The Hiking Bear property because of its beauty and location in the Village of Shagbark, a residential community in Sevierville, Tennessee—just a stones throw from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, the Foothills Parkway, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our community is a gated, 24-hour guarded village of nearly 1,300 acres of mountainous woodlands. It's a secure, quiet, peaceful retreat that offers an escape from the days excursions to nearby Dollywood, Ripley's Aquarium, Cades Cove, the dozens and dozens of Smoky Mountain hiking trails, and the arts and crafts community. We love it and we are sure you will too.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the Shagbark Community it is private and feels like your away from it all, but yet you are only 7 miles to the Parkway. Its gated and has 24/7 security which we love. With 1300 acres its like our own park with our own wildlife to enjoy. We decorated with love for Bears and things that represent Tennessee. The Hiking Bear is our cabin name as we love to Hike the trails and we love to observe the Bears from a distance so a Hiking Bear it is. We hope you enjoy the cabin and the home like feel we have tried hard to create for our guests. Also if you are looking for a larger place we have another cabin please check our other listing VRBO Listing #814038

Adorable and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. We had everything we needed and loved the cozy feel and the decor of the cabin. We especially enjoyed the double sided fireplace and the hot tub. It was a peaceful location yet not too far from Pigeon Forge and all the attractions. Would love to come back and stay again in the future. Perfect for a couple's get away.

Great cabin!!! Very very clean and has all the things you need. Loved the double sided fireplace. Easy to just stay here and not leave or easy access to get to Town for things to do there!

This cabin is beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a nice cabin to get-away-to for some much needed rest and relaxation! Our stay at The Hiking Bear Cabin far exceeded our expectations! The cabin is located in a great community that is close enough to town, yet far enough to give you the mountain experience! The cabin is cozy, quiet and clean. I had trouble with the internet after a power surge and E-mailed the owner who called me right away to help me clear up the issue. I have already recommended the cabin to friends and we are already planning on going back to the cabin later this year.
