|Description: Faffoo Bear's Den is
located in the Cherokee National Forest at scenic Cosby, TN, this modest 1 Bedroom/Bath log cabin is only a short distance from the Smoky Mountain National Park. Home to the black bear, the wild turkey and a myriad of plants and animals unique to Eastern Tennessee, Faffoo Bear's Den provides a comfortable retreat for up to 3 adults or two adults and small children, with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a pull-out loveseat in the living room. The dining table seats 4.
The genuine log construction keeps the interior cool in summer and warm in winter, while air conditioning and electric heaters provide comfort during temperature extremes. Constructed in 2008, Faffoo Bear's Den is the cozy alternative to large and costly cabin rentals.
The spacious porch provides a scenic view of Ground Hog Creek, located on the property, and the creek provides the appropriate mountain music for carefree days and restful nights. Situate on 8.7 acres of mountain forest, hiking opportunities are there for those who like their hiking to be largely vertical.
While not equipped with some of the luxuries of larger cabins such as full kitchens, all the amenities needed for a long weekend getaway (or longer) are here. A modern bath (inside!) features a large walk-in shower. Microwave and convection ovens, griddle, charcoal grill and mini fridge combine to provide all the cooking opportunities short of roasting a turkey! The silverware and crockery is what you would expect in your own home and the knives are quality and kept sharp.
Dish TV with DVD player, limited cell phone service, video library and very limited satellite internet access provide entertainment when you aren't hiking, rafting on the Pigeon River, dining in one of Gatlinburg's many restaurants or visiting its tourist attractions and riding or driving the many "twisty" roads in the area. Gatlinburg is only 20 minutes away and historic Newport, TN is closer. Cosby Campground, operated by Park Service, is less than 2 miles with its hiking and bridle trails and fishing opportunities on Cosby Creek.
An RV site is also available with 30 amp service, cool mountain water and pleasant graveled patio area enclosed with a split rail fence just a few yards from the creek. Because of the uphill turn required to enter the site, we recommend trailers shorter than 30' unless you have 4 wheel drive and excellent trailering skills. Smaller motor-homes can negotiate the graveled drive as well.
Whatever your outdoor passions, the Great Smoky Mountains, beautiful Eastern Tennessee and Faffoo Bear's Den will cater to them. The log cabin vacation you've been putting off is now affordable. We hope to welcome you soon.
