Beautiful group cabin; great for Men's/Women's/Youth Retreats. Large common space downstairs with two-sided gas fireplace, sofa sleepers, TV, and patio with hot tub overlooking the beautiful Smoky Mountains and Dry Valley. There is also a piano, washer/dryer, pool table, and carpetball table downstairs. Upstairs is the main living room, dining room, another two-sided gas fireplace, and large TV.

About the neighborhood
Bear Lodge is located on Tuckaleechee Retreat Center property, 53 acres of mountain side property with 6 cabins total for rent. The spectacular view of the mountain and valley, the beautiful pool, and the lovely landscaped grounds make this property a peaceful and relaxing environment. Parking is adequate for the size of our cabins. We are in a quiet valley surrounded by mountains and farm land.
Getting around
Dry Valley in Townsend is a quiet valley surrounded by mountains. It is 3 miles from the main road in Townsend, Hwy. 321. Townsend is a small town with one stoplight, several wonderful restaurants, a Christian-owned coffee shop, outdoor and boutique shops, an art gallery, easy access to hiking, waterfalls, picnic areas, ziplining, bluegrass music, fishing, horseback riding, biking, and river tubing (in summer), only a 20 mile drive to Pigeon Forge, TN and 26 miles to Gatlinburg, both east of Townsend. Maryville to the west is an 18 mile drive. The beautiful Foothills Parkway, Cherohala Skyway (popular with cyclists), and Tail of the Dragon are within close driving distance, as is Cherokee, NC. Come see us and you won't want to leave!
