King Bear Downtown-Right off the Gatlinburg strip!

5 Bedrooms • 6 Baths (5 full, 1 half) • Sleeps 6-12
Accessible Internet Wood Stove Mountain Downtown Hot Tub (more...)

An extremely rare find, right in the heart of Gatlinburg, this custom built lodge was designed by Hurbert Bebb. Architect Hurbert Bebb was a former student of the famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Mr. Bebb is best known for his architectural design of Clingmans Dome where President Franklin D. Roosevelt held the dedication of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The lodge was custom built for a family of Gatlinburg's early entrepreneurs. The location of the lodge is due to the family-owned hotel (GateWay to the Smokies) located directly on the strip in Gatlinburg before entering into the National Park. Afterwards, the lodge became Gatlinburg's finest B&B and is now open for nightly rental.

The location is perfect for walking directly to the main strip (.03) or simply having your own access to the National Park within walking distance (.05). No need to worry about finding a parking space and no need to worry about traffic. It's unbelievable to have access to both of these locations within less than half a mile. This location is also conveniently accessible to Pigeon Forge via the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Although having the convenience of the location is important, the lodge itself offers numerous amenities. It is handicap accessible. The lodge is all on one level with large hallways and oversized bedrooms making it enjoyable for everyone. Another rare amenity, the lodge sits on a wide level piece of property and a privacy fence throughout its entirety. It offers plenty of flat, paved parking. No need to worry about the elements of the weather outdoors because it also includes an attached carport leading directly into the lodge.

One great amenity the lodge has to offer is the stunning mountain views while still located right in town! There are views of Anakeesta, the city lights of Gatlinburg and the lights of Ober. It has outside living with chaise lounges, dining, tv picnic tables and grill. The hot tub offers an electrical roof and privacy screening if desired. There is an outside fire pit with plenty of seating to be enjoyed at night with the beautiful city lights and moonlite mountains. If that's not enough, the lodge also has an outside shower with stunning mountain views!

The lodge has five large oversized bedrooms. One master is located at the front of the house. It has a king size bed, tv, sitting area, double closets, a large private bathroom with tub & shower and a granite double sink vanity. This master bedroom has direct mountain views while lying in the bed.

The master bedrooms (No.#1 & No.#2) are located directly behind the living space of the home. Master No#1 has a king size bed, an electric fireplace, a large private bathroom with a granite double sink vanity, with a shower and a tub. It has a private patio located on the side of the house. Master No#2 has a large wooded mural on the main wall, king size bed, small couch, private bathroom with a walk-in shower and double sliding doors to a patio with stunning mountain views. Both master bedrooms have their own heating and cooling system for personal room temperature setting.

The next two master bedrooms (No# 3 & No# 4) are located down the corridor. Master bedroom No# 3 has two queen beds, a sitting area, tv, private bathroom with a walk-in shower and double sliding doors to the patio with beautiful mountain views. The No# 4 masterbed is located at the end of the hallway. It has a mural on the main wall with a silhouette of trees, king size bed, tv, sitting area, private bathroom with walk-in shower and double sliding doors to the patio looking at the center of all the outside living area. Both master bedrooms have their own heating and cooling system for personal room temperature settings.

The King Bear Downtown Lodge offers free access to three clubhouses! They are all conveniently located within three miles radius from the lodge. Each clubhouse is uniquely different. All of the clubhouses have oversized swimming pools (some have two or three pools at one location), tennis courts, pickleball, basketball, workout facility, gameroom, and children's playground. All guests must have the club pass upon entering.

The King Bear Downtown Lodge has been a wedding destination for years. The stunning mountain views, easily accessible location and numerous amenities makes it a perfect wedding venue.

The wedding ceremony venue is located behind the lodge in the large outdoor space with beautiful mountains views. The reception venue is located at the south clubhouse just 3 miles away. The club house includes 12 round tables, 4 six-foot tables, 2 eight-foot tables and 45 chairs. Also included are black linens for all tables, 45 gold chargers, 45 gold napkin rings, 45 white dinner plates, 45 water goblets and 4 chafing dishes. All of this for a $3,000 fee.

A four night minimum stay is required, excluding the $3,000 fee. There are other cabins close by that can be rented separately for additional guests, if needed.

Cancellation Policy: One hundred percent (100.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 60 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.
