About the property

Welcome to the Lodge at Bear Crossing! It is a large luxury lodge perched on 2 acres of private property that borders the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The front of the lodge consists of 522,419 acres belonging the Smoky Mountain National Park, without a house in sight. A National Park trail is easily accessible within 100 feet of the lodge. No need to go anywhere to hike through the mountains! The back of the lodge overlooks the floor of the famous Wears Valley. It is only 10 miles from our driveway to the Parkway in PIGEON FORGE, and about 15 miles to the Parkway in GATLINBURG. LOCATION! LOCATION!

Our entire lodge is custom, with most furniture being hand-carved from reclaimed lumber. It is a perfect place for large gatherings, with plenty of space to entertain! Outdoor living at the lodge is sure to please, with decks on all levels, fire pit, gas grill and hiking trail through the National Park OFF OF OUR PROPERTY! There is a double paved road that leads to our private driveway, with plenty of room to park multiple vehicles. (There are inclines driving up to the lodge). Located in an upscale area with surrounding beauty. We also have the ***SUNDAY TICKET*** so that you don't have to miss a game!

The main level of the lodge boasts a MASSIVE wrap-around deck, with a gas grill, seating, and 2 hammocks to relax in. The living room, kitchen/dining area, and laundry room with washer & dryer are also on the main level. Kitchen has custom cabinets made from native poplar bark. You may have seen the poplar bark materials in several rustic homes featured on HGTV. Huge floor to ceiling stone wood burning fireplace in the living room. This level has 2 large bedrooms with private baths, including a large master suite with a 65" 4K TV, whirlpool tub and separate shower unit with steam accessory.

The second level has 2 large bedrooms, both with TVs and private full bathrooms. One of the bedrooms has a large deck overlooking the National Park.

The lower level of the house has a large bedroom holding 3 queen beds, with a shared full bathroom. Adjacent to the bedroom, is a game room/sitting area with a pull out sofa-bed and large 52" TV. This level also has a pool table, and opens up to a huge deck area, with hot tub on this level.

We have a "bonus" level called the Tower Room, which is a 3rd floor level. It includes a sitting room, surround windows with views all around from the inside, and a stone gas fireplace. It opens up to a large deck with the most amazing views of the Great Smoky Mountains. You are above it all on this level!!!

We love this dream mountain lodge, and hope that you do too! We take pride in providing our guests with a clean and welcoming environment. All you need to do, is relax and enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains and all they have to offer:)

About Leah Rosenzweig

We bought this dream home last year to move closer to my Dad, and because we fell in love with the beauty of Tennessee and Wears Valley in particular. We are still amazed at how majestic the scenery is every time we are there, and never take it for granted...

Leah Rosenzweig purchased this lodge in 2016

What makes this lodge unique

We fell in love with this home because of the location and the magnificent views. We really do have our own piece of the Mountains! We love to sit on a different deck every time and soak up all of the killer views.

Fantastic cabin and weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a fabulous weekend at this property and a great time was had by all! There were 5 couples and plenty of space for everyone. I think our most favorite hangout spot was the awesome deck that wrapped around the entire cabin. Just absolutely beautiful and probably a repeat!!

Great cabin and awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin was perfect for our family of 15! The view is spectacular, especially from the tower room! We particularly loved all the porches, the location, the hot tub, all the amenities and the fire pit. Our grandchildren absolutely loved the game room! It is appropriately named Bear Crossing as we saw bear several times while there! We would definitely recommend this place and hope to stay there again.

Beautiful well appointed home in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

This large home was more than able to accommodate our party of 10, with large private rooms and plenty of outdoor space. Far enough away from the city to see thousands of stars from the third floor observation room/deck, but close enough for a run to the market. Kitchen was well stock and provided plenty of everything for our large group. We even had a visitor one night while playing bags on the driveway, a curious but non-menacing black bear. Loved everything about the home and location.

Spectacular location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with a location that can't be matched. Astounding views of the Great Smoky Mountains right at the edge of the property. It is a steep and windy climb to the lodge, but well worth it! Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome. The property manager, Leah, promptly answered all questions and went above and beyond to provide for our needs. Townsend is called the quiet side of the Smokies and the name is definitely apropos. It was a pleasure to be away from the congestion and noise of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge but still have access to all they had to offer. Had a memorable dinner at Dancing Bear Lodge in Townsend. We hiked a part of Round Top Trail which is located just off the parking area of the lodge.

Can't say enough about this lodge!!!!

Great home with immediate park access

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at Bear Crossing. Home was perfect for our family of 9. All had their own appropriately sized bed and individual room bathroom, no having to sleep on couches or pull-outs. Property is ideally located for those that want to maximize their time in the park and not have to navigate Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge to go exploring. Close enough to visit those locations if you want, however. Views are spectacular. Leah was very responsive and everything was as depicted. Our family is already looking for dates to see when we can return!

Car: necessary

Wears Valley is the perfect small town situated 15 miles in either direction to all of the attractions in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg.
