Shopping in the Great Smoky Mountains


Hey ladies, it's that time of year again when we start thinking about that perfect gift for those special girls in our lives! Whether that be granddaughters, daughters, sisters, moms, grandmothers, or best friends, there is that perfect one of a kind gift for each one of them.  One of a kind Beehive Rainbops will surely make those granddaughters happy Christmas day. Cell phone cases, owl accessories, pocketbooks, chevron necklaces, family handstamped necklaces, initial items and oh so much more for everyone on your list!  This is absolutely one of my most favorite shops in the Smokies, its a little gem on the outside of Sevierville, located just down the road from Knife Works, and the Russell Stove Candy Outlet, near I40.   Be sure to stock up on those unique gifts whether that be for Christmas or special events for the friends and family in your life. You don't have to spend a fortune on that one of a kind gift this Christmas, just slip into the Beehive when you visit the Beary Blessed Cabin within the next few weeks.  The cabin makes a perfect getaway for a long weekend for the girls to go shopping and take advantage of great deals at the Beehive Outlet, Tangier Outlet and the many sensational shops in the Great Smoky Mountains.  Be sure to visit the cabin's website at Beary Blessed Cabin to view our calendar and see if the dates you can get away to the Smokies are available for some shopping and dining with the girls!

Tennessee Wildfire in Gatlinburg


Tennessee Wildfire in Gatlinburg and a Update on Beary Blessed Cabin  

First of all we want to let all our blog readers know the Beary Blessed Cabin was spared during the Tennessee Wildfire in Gatlinburg.  The cabin sustained no damages and we were truly blessed as there were many not as fortunate as us.   We have been very busy this week trying to accommodate the guest we had in the cabin and that arrive within the next couple of weeks.  The overwhelming response of concern we received from our past guest, our blog readers and Beary Blessed Cabin Facebook Fans has touched our family more than you could know.  You all are simply the best and we appreciate every call, email, text, but most of all your prayers. We do thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 

The Great Smoky Mountains will be stronger and better as the people of the area are so resilient.  The businesses, the cabin owners, the people of the Smokies want to move forward and restore things as quickly as possible.  Its a place we hold dear, as well as so many of our guest who come to the area. 

One of the most important things about my blog today is how we can all help in supporting the Gatlinburg, Great Smoky Mountain area during this tragic time.  One of the ways is by ordering a 'Smokies Strong' T-shirt for $15 and the proceeds go to the American Red Cross to aide those in need from this great devastation. 



This way you can let others know how much the Great Smoky Mountains mean to you as well. These shirts come in adult and youth sizes.  You can purchase them in one of two ways, if your going to be in the Pigeon Forge area you can pick up a shirt at Krogers, Wal-Mart or Food City or you can visit Smokies Strong T-Shirt and order one.  To learn more about the shirt and how this was started Visit Knox News  

We do thank you all for your support and we appreciate your continued prayers as the area rebuilds. To make the Great Smoky Mountains stronger than ever, we do encourage you to purchase a t-shirt to aide those in need. Also to plan a visit to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area and enjoy the many attractions of the area and our Smoky Mountain Cabin Rental, so that the area may thrive once again at its full capacity.

Blessings to all.

The Fall Colors of Great Smoky Mountains


A lot of people who come to the Great Smoky Mountains to enjoy the leaves as they change color, want to know several different things.

1.  When is the best time to come?  It varies from year to year based on the weather conditions in the area, but normally in the higher elevations you can see the leaves changing color in late September. Usually around the 3rd and 4th week of October and the first week of November the lower elevations will show their colors.

We still have Fall Dates Available with Specials at Beary Blessed Cabin

2 NIGHT STAY SPECIALS
Total Price $280.00(Includes Ntly Rate, Taxes and Cleaning Fee) 
September 27, 28
October 25, 26
December 22, 23

3 NIGHT STAY SPECIALS
Total Price $390.00(Includes Ntly Rate, Taxes and Cleaning Fee) 
October 4, 5, 6
November 1, 2, 3
November 6, 7, 8
November 13, 14, 15      Winterfest in Smokies Begin November 9th this Year     

2. Many ask where is the best places to see the leaves as they change colors?  Higher elevations such as Clingmans Dome and Mt. LeConte offer some spectacular views!  Don't forget to get up close with nature to see some of the beauty of fall as you take some Hiking Trails and be engulfed in a canopy of leaves.  One of the most popular ways to enjoy fall in the Great Smoky Mountains is the beautiful motor tour of Cades Cove or drive Newfound Gap Road.  Or you can be real adventurous and take a Scenic Helicopter Ride and see it from a whole different viewpoint.    

3.  What is the weather like during the Fall in the Smokies?  September temperatures during the day can average still in the 80's.  October temperatures average during the day of around 70 and the evenings in the 40's to 50's. So I always like to tell visitors coming to the Smokies during this time of year, be prepared with a lightweight jacket or sweater for the mornings, short sleeves during the day and maybe a little heavier jacket(keyword jacket, not coat) during the late evening hours. Temperatures vary greatly in October, so be prepared.

 4.  Where can I get a great nightly rate on a cabin for our family, that will not break the bank?  Our Affordable Smoky Mountain Cabin Rental offers great low rates and payment plan options for stays made in advance, year round.  Cabin offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, great location between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, a hot tub, jacuzzi, pool table, fireplace, 60 arcade game in one, DirecTV and so much more for your family to enjoy!  Oh yea, don't forget our September, October, and November Specials listed above to save even more for some of our last available dates in 2016!  Come enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains like never before during Fall of the year.

Smoky Mountain Fall Foliage



Fall in the Smokies is just around the corner and we still have a few dates left open for a little getaway along with our Last Summer Special.  To learn more about our availability and the changing colors of the leaves we have provided some information we hope you find helpful.

Last Summer Special Stay 3 Nights/4th Free from August 24-27
Fall Available Dates:
October 4, 5, 6 and October 25, 26
November 1-8 and November 13, 14, 15 
Winterfest Available Dates:
December 3-17   

Fall is a special season in the Smoky Mountains as temperatures drop, and trees change in to their fall splendor of colors.  Each year, people always ask when the leaves will change color in the Smoky Mountains in hopes of planning a visit at just the right time to see the colors at their peak (when they are the brightest).  Understanding what makes leaves change color in the fall will give you an idea of how to know when the colors will peak. There’s a long, detailed, scientific explanation available at the USDA Forest Service website
Foliage Forecast #1: July 27, 2016 – The Smoky Mountains have had a very wet and warm summer, which means the trees are extremely green & plush with leaves. This has created an enormously full canvas for what we expect to be an incredibly vibrant, beautiful, and hopefully long-lasting fall foliage season! The biggest variable in predicting when the colors will change is the temperature. Everything will kick into gear when we have cool (but not freezing) nights starting in September as the daylight becomes shorter. Currently, the National Weather Service is predicting above-average temps for August, so hopefully that will change as September rolls in.

As of right now, our first prediction at the Gatlinburg Tenn Guide for the 2016 Fall Color Forecast for the Smoky Mountains is October 15 – November 15.  As always, the colors will begin to change in the highest elevations first and then trickle down into the valley (Pigeon Forge) over the following weeks. As temperature and weather patterns change over the next couple of months, we will update this forecast accordingly if necessary.
So we invite you to come and enjoy Fall in the Smokies at our affordable Smoky Mountain Cabin Rental accommodates 6 adults comfortably with tons of amenities and a great location, visit us at Beary Blessed Cabin  or Affordable Smoky Mountain Cabin Rental or our Facebook Page

And for those of your with a sweet tooth, I have created a list here of some of the many candy shops in the Gatlinburg area.  These shops will make your mouth water and make the decision making process in your life a lot more difficult.  Items such as gourmet candy apples, to taffy you can watch being made, to pecan clusters and even some sugar free candies for those who may be restricted.  A trip to the Gatlinburg strip without stopping in a candy shop, shame on you, its half the fun and it brings out the kid in all of us.  So be sure to stop in one of these many shops for a sweet treat the next time your in the Gatlinburg area.
