Saying Goodbye is Never Easy

But sometimes that is just what we have to do.  We the owners of Beary Blessed Cabin in the Smokies have sold our cabin and our quaint, little cozy mountain top cabin will have new owners starting July 1, 2014.  It will also have a new name, Beary Cozy Cabin.  It is with sadness that we have to tell all our past customers that we will no longer be their to help them with their cabin needs.  We have enjoyed all your positive feedback, and getting to know each one of you on a personal level.  We hope you have enjoyed our blog and all the tidbits we have shared with you over the years about the cabin and the Smokies.  But as we move on, we do want to extend to you our readers, and past customers the opportunity to be able to contact us until July 1st with any questions or information you may need regarding the Smokies or the cabin for future stays.

We truly do appreciate each and everyone of you and your support over the years and we hope all your stays in the Smokies will be blessed ones.

Sincerely,

Sheila, Sarah & Keith

Cheap Fun Filled Day in Great Smoky Mountains

Your family is sure to love the Smoky Mountain River Rat, it is one of my family's favorites!  Like I tell all our guest at the Beary Blessed Cabin that come during the summer months, this is a must!  A full day of tubing for only $13 per person for all day tubing, you can't beat this kind of fun at this price!  If your family loves the water and wants a new adventure, be sure to put this on your list of things to do.

Here is my recommendation for an inexpensive day in the Smokies full of fun for the family.

Pack up a picnic lunch, filled with lots of goodies for an all day adventure, fried chicken, sandwiches, chips, you know the usual good southern foods.  LOL!

Just a little ways outside of Pigeon Forge, is a cozy little town called Townsend, this is where you will find the River Rat, I would get there around noonish, go for a couple of floats down the river, usually takes about an hour for each tubing down the river and back to the starting point again(of which you have a bus to take you back to start all over again).  Then settle back for that picnic lunch and a little rest, head back to the river for some more tubing, by this time its getting to be late afternoon.

No better time than now to get all dried off and head onto Cades Cove just down the road, another must do in the Great Smoky Mountains and it is free, a motor driving trail where you can learn about the history of the early settlers and see wildlife, most of the time some bears if your lucky in the late evenings as most of the animals come out to have dinner in the pastures. Best time to view feedings and see wildlife is between 5:30 and 7:45 in the evening, it can take about as little as 1 1/2 hours to 3 or 4 hours, depending on how much your family wants to see, such as the old churches and first settler homes.  I would allot at least 2 hours for a decent tour, my family usually stays about 3, we take pictures and stop quite a few times though, there are restrooms at park entrance and midway through.   A quiet relaxing way to end the day, before heading back to the Beary Blessed Cabin for some steaks on the grill, a dip in the hot tub and a movie for the evening for the family.

See a day that is in expensive and fun for the whole family.  Be sure to visit the links and to bring your towels and bathing suits!!!  


Regular rate is $13.00 per person. Children five and under are FREE!
Tubing rates are for all day tubing, so once you pay you can take as many trips as you like.

Winter Life In Early Days of the Smokies



As you can imagine cabin fever was abundant when the long hard winters settled in the nooks and grannies of the Smokies back in the early settler days.  Activities from making music, lessons learned, to stitching, and what they ate during the difficult winters can be learned more about at
http://www.nps.gov/grsm/historyculture/winter-stories.htm

In reading the articles and learning more about the history of the Smokies at the Great Smoky Mountain National Park Service site, you will come to love and appreciate the simplicity and beauty of the Smokies in a whole different way.  It is my most favorite site about the Smokies, there is always a wealth of information on this site and the shop is simply awesome for those wanting to learn more in depth about the history, wildlife, and beauty of the Smokies.

Want a Fun Vacation in the Smokies, On A Budget, Payment Plan Options

Hey we understand that vacations are expensive and in today's economy it can be tight to have a fun filled vacation for a family of four.  But I do believe we can help your family experience the Great Smoky Mountains on those few dollars you have to spend.  First of all where else during the summer months are you going to find a 2 bedroom, 2 bath cabin rental, with a partial mountain view that sleeps 6 and has a great location between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, close to all attractions, for only $99 a night?  Plus that offers a Payment Plan Option?  No where, they don't exist, most owners are going to charge you a security deposit and pay half now and the remainder 30 days before arrival.  We don't charge a security deposit either, is it getting better for you, are you breathing a sigh of relief.  Good, cause we want your family to have a great place to stay and not bust the bank.  But wait, there are several things to do in the Smokies free that will keep your family entertained for a few days, like what your asking?

1.  A picnic lunch packed and off to Cades Cove for the day, where the kids can play in the streams and get their feet wet and see deer, fox, bears, turkeys and other wildlife and trails to hike and waterfalls to listen too.  We suggest buying your kids one of those cheap, disposable cameras and let them take pictures of all the things they see and experience in the Smokies, when they get home and get their pics developed they will be tickled to look back and relive their memories of their vacation highlights.  Then scrapbook and start a tradition.    

2.  A day in the Arts and Craft community and the kids can see candles being made, see Santa Claus even during the summer, sample all sorts of treats along the way and hear toe tapping mountain music being played.

3. Take a ride through the Great Smoky Mountain National Parkway and visit the Cherokee Indian shops and see Indians as they live and work and once again play in the stream that runs through Cherokee.

4.  Ride the Trolley in Gatlinburg, Enjoy the Great Smoky Mountain Tunes and Tales every evening, Enjoy Free Samples at the Pepper Palace and sample some of the free fudge from some of the candy shops.

5.  Plus you guys can always enjoy the hottub at the cabin and foosball table for an afternoon of relaxation, play some board games and rent a movie from Redbox.

Be sure to browse through our blog an find many exciting things to do in the Smokies and be sure to reserve your stay with us, we only have a few more weeks and then all our summer dates will be filled.  But their is always Fall, where the Smokies bring on a whole new dimension bursting with color and festivals. Check out our website where you can view the calendar for available dates and the video of the cabin as well.  Hope to hear from you soon and lets squeeze that Smoky Mountain vacation in on a monthly payment plan, by paying half now and the remainder in monthly payments until 30 days before your arrival date!  The Smokies are Calling!!

Ghost Town in the Sky, A Smoky Mountain Attraction

Ghost Town in the Sky, located in Maggie Valley, NC was always a favorite of mine as a child.  I knew as my family made its way to the Great Smoky Mountains on our family vacation, this would be one of our go to attractions.  I can still remember the anticipation of the the next move, the squeal with each gunshot and the silliness of Festus the undertaker, as I watched the gun shows.  If your children have never experienced the thrill of a showdown, a Western gunfight in the street, then this is a must, a memory they will always remember of their vacation.  We cannot forget the saloons, two of them with music and can-can girls, a schoolhouse, jail and so much more in Western Town.
 


Ghost Town in the Sky also has a Level Fun Park, with ziplines, three levels(even one for children 4 years and up), chairlift ride, and many kiddie rides for the little ones.  In 2014 the arrival of the Resurrection phase is to be completed.  Resurrection Mountain, projected to open in 2014 will be built on the highest-elevated portion of the mountain and will be a replica of Jerusalem’s Holy Land.  So as you can see Ghost Town is coming back to life and offers something for all ages, be sure to Visit Their Website

Make it a day, start out on your adventure as you leave Gatlinburg, by taking in the beauty of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park through the parkway, then off to Cherokee for a a visit with the Indians and their way of life, then onto Maggie Valley for a live Western town complete with all the trimmings of an old-fashion gunfight and can-can girls.  Be sure to get an early start as you leave the Beary Blessed Cabin, as this will be a busy, fun filled day, crammed packed with tons of memories for your family.

Books about the Great Smoky Mountains

One of my favorite places to go and find information about the Great Smoky Mountains is the Bookstore of the Great Smoky Mountain Association.  All proceeds go the park, so this helps in maintaining the park for the thousands that come to visit this natural wonder every year.  

Whether your looking for something for the Family To Do , a Family Fun Kit or Cades Cove Childhood, there is a book for everyone in their large collection.  You can also purchase gifts of jewelry and food goodies as well.  This is a gem of a treat for anyone who loves the Smokies and would like to learn more whether they want information on what to anticipate for their first trip or one's yearly trip.  I hope you enjoy their site as much as do, so head on over to the Bookstore and find something that interest you.

The Cades Cove Childhood book is sure to be one that will delight those of us who love Cades Cove and are drawn to its simpleness.  Watch the video to learn more about the book.
