About "Black Bear Lookout" Gatlinburg Cabin

Be on the lookout for a wonderful time! This newly remodeled cabin is 2 floors of lush comfort and tasteful décor.

You'll enter on the upper level: the fully furnished kitchen is on your immediate left and the living room opens on your right. This space is very open thanks to the airy floor plan and the abundance of windows which extend from the sliding glass door to the vaulted ceiling's cathedral style panes and run the length of the home. These windows look out onto the stunning mountain view this home offers, allowing you to enjoy your natural surroundings whether your relaxing in the cozy living room or basking on the deck. The living room comes complete with both sofa and recliner which are parked in front of the gas fireplace and cable TV (with VCR and DVD capability). Take your pick! Also upstairs is the first of two bedrooms. This bedroom is decorated in dark forest greens and accented with naturally finished wood surfaces. A king size bed resides on the iron wrought bed frame, rich with an air of rugged yet sumptuous comfort. The second bedroom is downstairs and is furnished in burgundy hues with wood accents. It also features a king size bed with a bold 4 post bed frame of unfinished wood. Each bedroom has a wall mounted cable TV and a full bath nearby to make every guest feel at home. Downstairs is also home to the game room. Here you'll find an additional wall mounted TV and a futon. This space features a pool table at its center surrounded by hardwood floors and ample windows which face out onto the deck. The lower level deck is where you'll find the hot tub, a spot definitely not to be missed. Also off note, this home has full washer/dryer facilities.

If you're thinking about a Gatlinburg vacation, be sure to give us a try. We're sure you'll want to hibernate with us every year.


Great stay!

by from Richmond, IN

I HIGHLY recommend staying here! The cabin was immaculate when we arrived! We appreciated the special note from the housekeeper, Luis, letting us know the hot tub was shanties and the time it was cleaned. The office staff was very helpful and efficient and VERY friendly. We will definitely be staying here again! Thank you!

One of our favorite places to stay. Great view, great service. It's a regular for us.

Excellent Overall Stay at Black Bear Lookout!

by from Cynthiana, KY

My friends and I retreated to this cabin for a weekend in early December, 2014 and were so overly pleased with our stay that we are already talking about a second one early next year!! The cabin was very clean, spacious, cozy and the view was spectacular! To have stumbled upon Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg and found people so accommodating and a cabin so suited - we couldn't be happier!

Black Bear Lookout- Great Place to Stay!

by from ray city, GA

We rented Black Bear Lookout two years ago for a family vacation (I know, this is a bit late) and it was perfect! The roads leading to the house were a bit steep, and it was difficult to find in the dark, but it was also our first time in TN. The house itself is gorgeous, very well maintained. There were 3 of us, my husband and I took the downstairs room and my son slept upstairs. Very comfortable accommodations, everything is great shape. We did not see any bears like some of the other renters reported, but it was still a perfect mini vacation. My husband proposed to my on the balcony, in front of the view of the amazing Smoky Mountains!!! About to book again for next Feb.! Highly recommend!!!!

Excellent company to rent from. We have stayed at 2 or 3 of their cabins, but this one suits our needs & wants perfectly. We have rented it 3 times and will return again this winter.

Bear sighting--2 days in a row!

by from Fort Pierce, FL

We spent a wonderful week at Black Bear Lookout, let me just say it's a steep drive (yes I know that's been said) and you should use your gears going up (if you don't have a 4 wheel drive). The view is amazing- so much sure you take your camera! The inside was very clean and up to date. The beds slept very nice and the floors were clean! We enjoyed the seperate living areas (upstairs/downstairs) and loved that we had a washer/dryer- I hate coming home with dirty clothes! My son loved the pool table and the hot tub (although we only used it twice). We did call maintenance one time to replace outside flood light bulbs and they were very prompt to change them that day. The only down side that we noticed was the lack of outside upkeep with cobwebs and spider webs near the front door and on the deck; however as I stated before the inside was very nice and no complaints in that department. The best part of the ENTIRE trip was our bear sighting on Tuesday at 1pm and Wednesday at 230pm- this was certainly a highlight and very unexpected! We named the bear Homer and kept an eye out for him the rest of the time. You will certainly have a great time at this cabin and I would stay again. The mountains are certainly a work of God.

Response from Management

Thank you for your wonderful review of Black Bear Lookout, we are excited to hear you had such a great time in the Smokies! I will notify housekeeping of the exterior issues and get it taken care of. Thanks- Beth

A great cabin with few flaws

by from Indianapolis, IN

Spectacular view of the mountains. Very comfortable for family of 4. nice kitchen with all you could need - a couple of the utensils (tongs and spatula) could be replaced. Ice maker and fridge worked well. Bedrooms nice with plenty of blankets and pillows. Upstairs bedroom could use a little more lighting. Loved lower level bathroom with washer and dryer. A hair dryer would have been convenient as I left mine at home. Loved the opportunity to play pool with the family-bumpers need to be replaced. Grilled most of our meals-top rack on grill needs to be replaced as it kept falling on our food. Overall, we give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars! Black Bear Lookout has become our family's Tennessee 'home' and we look forward to coming back in 2014.

Response from Management

I will have Maintenance check the grill rack and the pool table bumpers. We to to see you soon at Black Bear Lookout!

Black Bear Lookout

by from effingham, IL

The name says it all, we saw 9 bears total. A very nice cabin with a beautiful view. The hot tub didn't get hot the first day there but after a call Ron showed up and had it going in no time at all. Cabin was very nice, wood floors, nice decor, good tvs. Sitting in the hot tub looking at the view of the smoky mts was wonderful.

Great experience once again

by from Canton, OH

This is our third time staying with Mountain Rentals of Gatlinburg and in Black Bear Lookout! My husband and I try to get to Gatlinburg every couple years and we always choose Black Bear Lookout. We love the cabin and the view is awesome. The staff is always helpful and very polite and we have never had any complaints or problems while staying at the property. We will definitely be coming back and staying here once again!

A very pleasant stay!

by from Hilliard, OH

The cabin is clean, spacious, and well equipped, very comfortable for four of us. With curvy roads and steep slopes leading to the cabin and not very clear road signs, it's a bit hard to navigate around. We decided it's better to come back to the cabin before dark to avoid getting lost. Luckily it did not get dark until 8:30 pm.

Awesome company to rent from. Awesome cabin. Had everything we needed. The best view on the Smokies. I will definitely rent through you guys again.

Family Retreat

by from Whiteville, NC

Overall nice cabin. The interior was neat and clean and very attractive. The washer/dryer worked great and was a nice asset to have. It was easy to get to (as long as there is no snow). Not too far from town, but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet that nature has to offer. I would stay at Black Bear Lookout again without hesitation. MRG was easy to work with and the online reservations were great. I had my key code and internet password delivered to me just as they promised.

Black Bear Lookout

by from LaGrange, KY

The cabin was very clean and nicely decorated. The layout of the cabin was comfortable and the view great. the hot tub was set very low, but I was able to get it to a good temperature. Had a problem with the HVAC and a man was sent the next day. He had to order a part, but got it running adequately. Overall a nice rental.

Black Bear -November 2012


My Husband and I rented this cabin in 2011 nd fell in love with everything about the cabin and especially the most fantastic view of the Smokie Mountins.We want to say thanks to all the great empolyees @ MRG. Special thanks to maintance who came so fast when could not get the tv to work..I would recomend this cabin its really beatiful..

Awesome Vacation

by from Owensboro, KY

We had an Awesome Vacation in Gatlinburg, TN. The cabin was all we wanted and more. The balcony view, watching the morning sunrise, was incredible. The access roads are steep and curvy but the cabin location, amenities, and mountain views are well worth it. Only short drive to any area location. We recommend the Smoky Mountains as a great vacation destination to all!!!

Another great experience

by from frackville, PA

Can not say enough good things about the cabin and the overall experience dealing with mountain rentals, I am a returning customer and will be returning again in the future. This is the 2nd time staying at this particular cabin and we absolutely love it, it is close to everything yet away from it all at the same time nice and private and the views are great! This trip was totally a pleasurable experience from beginning to end and the the entire staff at mountain rentals are superb to deal with I would defiantly recommend using them in the future.

Our Family Vacation

by from Sunrise, FL

We had a great time at Black Bear Lookout cabin. The cabin was spotless and everything was as advertised. No bait and switch with this company. The view was spectacular and the cabin was very comfortable and clean. My wife said this cabin was heaven. Thanks for the great memories! Andy K. West Palm Beach, Florida

Response from Management

I am glad you and your family had a great family vacation! We hope to come and stay with us again in the near future! Thanks, Brooklyn

Our stay at Black Bear Lookout

by from Hogansville, GA

This year for vacation my husband and I decided to do something different for vacation and invited my mother in law and father in law because they are getting older and would not be able to take a vacation alone. The cabin was absolutely perfect! We had a wonderful time and the view was amazing! My inlaws are already planning our next trip back. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin.

Response from Management

I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! We hope you come back and see us in the near future! Thanks, Brooklyn

Our honeymoon stay at blackbear lookout

by from fairborn, OH

Our stay at the black bear lookout cabin was absolutely incredible! The cabin was VERY clean and stocked with anything you could need for your stay.We were highly impressed it exceeded our expectations. I am terrified of bugs and spiders and that was a concern of mine. I checked in corners of the floors and ceilings and I didn't even see one cobweb or insect in the whole place :) I would highly recommend staying there in fact I have already to family and friends. The patio was difficult at times to enjoy due to the wood boring bees but it is nature and you can't control that.they aren't as bad in the evening though.

Great anniversary get away!

by from Bethalto, IL

The house was very comfortable and had AMAZING views of the mountains! My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful short trip. The cabin is a short, easy drive from Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountain National Park. The house was wonderful but there were carpenter bees outside on the deck that kept us from using the outdoor space. We definitely would go back!

Wonderful Time

by from Hiram, GA

Had a terrific time in Gatlinburg and the cabin. It was warm for 2 days and then snowed the last night there. The kids (7 and 8 years old) loved the cabin, especially the hot tub!! Very clean with a marvelous view of the mountains!

Black Bear Lookout

by from Woodruff, SC

Excellant cabin and I would definitly stay again. Great view,the decor was excellant, the kitchen well stocked. Loved the new ease of checking in and out. The staff have always been very good. This is our fourth time renting with Mountain rentals and our third cabin. So far, all have been good, but this is my favorite.

Wonderful Experience!!

by from McComb, MS

We stayed at Black Bear Lookout. It was a charming cabin, "bear" décor throughout, with lots of room and an amazing view of the mountains and the valley below. Everything was provided to get us started (paper products, etc) and the kitchen was fully furnished - there was nothing we needed that we didn't find. We felt the cabin actually saved us money, because we ate a good breakfast at the cabin, ate lunch in town, and came back to the cabin at night for a late supper - this had to have saved us over $100 a day, with a family of 6. So be sure to consider that when you think about the cost of a cabin versus a hotel. The only thing I didn't rate as excellent was the heating/AC, and it was NOT bad. But the temps dropped to below freezing two nights, and while the upstairs was toasty warm, with a fire place and the thermostat there, we couldn't find a way to get the downstairs room very warm. But there were plenty of blankets, and once under the covers, we were comfortable (and the upstairs was a perfect temp). Be sure to eat on the upper outside deck for breakfast - if you are an early riser, the sun coming over the mountains is spectacular. We must have taken over 100 pictures out on the deck, and at least one will be our Christmas card with the children, that we will send out this year. Also, be sure to watch Channel 20 (I think), the Gatlinburg channel. I found a place to go to get some pottery (Adelwine Pottery) on that channel, and I spent a whole morning there (and way too much money lol!) I could go on forever - if you are wavering between this cabin and another, let me tell you now that you can't go wrong choosing this cabin - it is absolutely wonderful, and we will book it again.

Black Bear Lookout


This is an beautiful cabin. Very clean and and has the best views of the Smokey Mts. Even had an Black Bear visit when we were leaving.

Beautiful view!

by from Evansville, IN

The pictures online did not do this cabin justice. The view was expansive, peaceful and beautiful. Cabin was very clean, nice floor plan. Love the downstairs bedroom and bath as this added to the privacy for all of us when we wanted it. Fully equipped kitchen was great. Actually woke up one morning and saw a huge black bear walking down the road in front of the cabin - this made my week!! We will be back and hopefully can stay at Black Bear Lookout again! Thanks for a great stay!

1st time cabin family

by from Joliet, IL

The cabin was great. Great views of mountains. Enjoyed everything in the cabin except the multi-leg bugs in the bathtub. Would request monthly spraying for bugs inside, but not enough to keep us from coming back to the same cabin. We loved it and planning next year's visit.

Response from Management

I apologize for the bugs, we do have the cabins treated on a monthly basis. I will contact pest control for an additional spray.

Wonderful view

by from Gulfport, MS

We just returned from our spring trip to Gatlinburg. We go 2x per year (in the fall and in the spring). We stay at a different rental every time, but this one may be a keeper. We had an awesome view and spent most evenings on the deck. There was a table and four metal chairs on the deck so we had all of our meals outside. The temperature at our home was in the high 80's when we left for Gatlinburg so we really enjoyed the temps and lack of humidity in the air. We used the air conditioning very little. We just opened up doors on the decks and enjoyed the weather. On the third day my husband decided to grill ribs, and we had a bear visit us while grilling. We have heard about people seeing bears before at your rentals, but we have never seen one at any of the places where we have stayed. I got a great photo. It was an awesome experience. The only complaints I have are very minor. There were only 2 dishtowels and 1 dishrag in the kitchen so you really need a few more. The only other thing I missed was a rocking chair on the deck.

Black Bear Lookout

by from Grafton, Illinois, IL

We have been staying in cabins in the Gatlinburg area for over 20 years and with Mountain Rentals for 4 years. We stay in a different cabin every time we visit. We have been very impressed with Mountain Rentals from the first time we stayed with them. The cabins are all priced right and very well maintained. Black Bear Lookout was no exception, the cabin was wonderful. The parking area is big, the cabin itself was roomy, a well stocked kitchen, bedrooms had comfy beds and the view is one of the best we have had yet! We saw 4 bears in the local park, can't remember the name...turn left at S.L. #8 and the park is up the road on your right, got some great pictures of them, very up close. Enjoy your stay!!

Response from Management

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! I think the park is Mynatt Park, the bears are definately out and about.

We'll be Back

by from Galliano, LA

This was our third time staying with Mountian Rentals. As always we were very happy with everything. The view is great! We put a humming bird feeder up and were able to sit outside while they drank right in front of us. Our main goal is relaxing and hiking the smokies.We also manage to shop and sample the food. Can't wait to return! Neal


by from crawfordsville, IN

We just stayed in Black Bear Lookout for 4 nights and it was absolutely wonderful! The view from the top deck was amazing, the hot tub was perfect, and the cabin was super clean. We looked and looked for the right cabin, and Black Bear Lookout was just what we wanted. On top of that, the staff were very nice and helpful. It was really easy to make our reservations and this was an overall pleasant experience. I would recommend Rentals of Gatlinburg to anyone wanting an excellent get-away. We will definitely be back!

by from danville, IL

We recently stayed in Black Bear Lookout, and absolutely loved it! It's spacious, clean and nicely decorated inside. The upper living room is great with is glass windows/doors that allow you to view the Great Smokey Mountains . We spent a lot of time playing pool, enjoying the hot tub, and relaxing on the upper deck. Although we did love the decks we were not a fan of the artificial flowers that decorated them. Also, take note that the parking area is not as large as it appears in the 360 view on the website.

Solid rental

by from Kansas City mo, MO

Just got back from Black Bear Lookout, a great cabin at a good price. The cabin was clean, large and comfortable. Two decks and a large downstairs make it a great choice for a couple and a godd choice for 3 or 4 people. There were a very VERY MINOR things about Black Bear Lookout just to be aware of-- there were no screen doors on the exits to the decks, the TV's were a little sub par and the dryer wasn't that good. Please don't let that keep you from this cabin! This was my second stay with MRG and I'll be back.

Nice Weekend Vacation

by from Monroe, TN

Nice Cabin, good view. Tastefully decorated, comfy couches, and nice hot tub. Only about 10 min. away from downtown Gatlinburg. Kitchen had pretty much any utensil you needed. We prefer not being quite so close to your neighbors and the road. We had two couples, two babies, and one other person which made it a little crowded. Not a baby/little kid friendly cabin. The pool table room could have been slightly bigger..sometimes it was too tight to make a shot. Cable downstairs was great, but the satalite upstairs was a pain. (and we've had satalite)Very nice overall, but will probably stay somewhere else next time. I do recommend it if just 1 or 2 couples staying though!

Response from Management

Thank you for your review! Sometimes in the mountains we do experience trouble with satellite; if you do have issues please call our maintenance dept & they will assist you with any & all needs.

My stay at Black Bear

by from St. Charles, MO

It was just what we were looking for. Great view with Bar-B Que pit and pool table. The food store was close and the cabin was clean. The reservation was painless and professional.

What a lookout

by from Lexington, KY

This rental unit is gorgeous. The decor is so cute and homey. The view is awesome! It snowed and you could see the mountain caps covered. This was awesome! This is my second time staying in this unit. The first time we lost electricity and this was fixed within an hour and a half. My husband had issues with the Internet the second stay but contacted the cable company and they were very helpful in resolving the issues. We will definitely stay here again.

Black Bear Lookout

by from Crystal Lake, IL

This chalet is perfect! It is so roomy and the decor is beautiful. The view of the mountains from the living room/dining area is spectacular. We definitely look forward to visiting again!

Black Bear Lookout - what a view!

by from Saint Charles, MO

I just stayed in this adorable cabin atop a mountain in Gatlinburg. The view was breath-taking. The comfort of the cabin was incredible. I was isolated from the world (which is what I wanted), but groceries, dining, gas, etc was only a few minutes away. I had all the privacy and peace I need to recharge my batteries, while still being convinient located to all kinds of sights and sounds. I definitely recommend this (or any other) cabin rental.
