Each season has its own breathtaking beauty, but if you visit in winter, we encourage you to arrive in a four-wheel-drive vehicle or at least have chains for your car. Despite the best efforts to keep roads clear, they are occasionally icy and snow-packed. Walk in the front door and enter your spacious living room anchored by a large river rock fireplace. It’s fun to snuggle up on the leather couch, loveseat and armchair as you listen to the crackling fire and watch your favorite shows on your TV with cable, a DVD player and VCR. High, exposed-beam ceilings and beautiful pine log finishes give the room a warm, welcoming feel. There’s a half-bathroom close by on the main floor for guests’ convenience. When you come to the mountains, be prepared for friends and family with hearty appetites. The mountain air and all your activity make guests hungry for dishes like chili, spaghetti and stew. Fortunately, you have a fully outfitted kitchen ready and waiting for you to whip up your family favorites. You also have two charcoal grills out on the deck in case you want to sizzle up some steaks or burgers. You can serve your group around your expansive harvest table that seats 10 people. Of course, you can always find an excellent restaurant in Gatlinburg where you can entertain your whole group. You have plenty of choices. Outside your Big Bear 2 kitchen is your large deck where you can sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee. You’ll love the porch swing, and even better, there’s a hot tub where you can soak your tired muscles after horseback riding, golf or hiking in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Another door on the deck leads directly into your Big Bear 2 game room where you’ll find theater-style seats for TV watching, a pool table and comfortable furniture where you can settle down with a good book or for a game with friends. Kids who are lucky enough to get to sleep in the two sets of bunk beds will love claiming the game room as their sleeping quarters. Imagine the adventures they’ll have playing together there. Your Big Bear 2 bedrooms feature large windows that let nature’s rich beauty in as you begin each day. Two of the bedrooms feature king-size beds and another four have queen-size beds. One thing’s for sure, you’ll sleep well in the mountain air and peaceful quiet of these rooms. Each bedroom has a private TV so guests can fall asleep watching their favorite late show. The four full bathrooms each feature a shower/tub combination. If you’re interested in a soak instead of a quick shower, we have you covered. Added features you’ll like are the washer and dryer tucked away behind folding doors in the game room. No need to head off for the Laundromat when you stay at Big Bear 2!
