Bear Necessities

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 6


Bear Necessities, a stylish two-bedroom condo for families or groups of friends, located just minutes from the main parkway in Pigeon Forge, offers a stunning location with breathtaking mountain views for an unforgettable vacation experience.


You’ll love the open-layout living space with its huge windows, amazing views, comfy seating, and a flat-screen TV.  Start a fire in the stone fireplace, and curl up with a warm cup of cocoa, or have a movie marathon. This space will relax you, inspire you, and entertain you!   


This fully stocked kitchen is such a cheerful space to be, you’ll catch yourself finding excuses to be in it!  Whip up your son’s favorite pudding, or your daughter’s favorite brownies. Whatever you need, this kitchen has it—cookery, flatware, and dishes. 

For your convenience, all cutlery, cookware, and dishes are provided. 


Nearby, you’ll find the round oak table that can seat four. Deal up a game of Texas Hold ‘Em or play a rousing game of charades... this dining room space is multi-functional!  If more seating is necessary, there are two additional seats at the breakfast bar. 


Both bedrooms here at Bear Necessities feature an abundance of natural light, making each space airy and bright. The beds are comfy, there are flat-screen TVs for your entertainment, and we’re not bragging, but we think you’ll have the best night’s sleep you’ve had in a long time here. 

Throw open those windows and breathe in that fresh mountain air! There’s nothing like it!  


The view here at Bear Necessities will leave you feeling reconnected with nature, and fully rejuvenated. We feel confident that you’ll return year after year. 

Don’t forget your swimsuit and sunscreen!  In warmer months, you’ll want to take a dip in the resort pool! 


With all the luxury that Bear Necessities has to offer, you might not ever want to leave the cottage. But if you do, you are within minutes of any convenience that Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg has to offer, from charming local eateries to grocery shopping, to entertainment. 

All linens are provided, and there is a washer/dryer for your convenience.

Bear Necessities offers complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi access so you can browse your entertainment options or check your email.

We were in town for a baseball tournament at the Cal Ripken Experience. This condo was the perfect location. Close to the parkway and all the activities and yet a very quiet, secluded feel.

Bear necessities was the perfect family retreat! The home looks just as pictured and you can tell the owners take great pride in their home, it was cutely decorated for the fall season. Everything you could possibly need in the condo and tucked away from hustle and bustle but close enough to all area attractions in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg! Kids also enjoyed the tic tac toe board and the pool during some down time. Great place and highly recommend.
