Sleepy Bear Lodge, 7 Bedrooms, Arcade, Theater Room, Hot Tub, Sleeps 22
The fun never stops at Sleepy Bear Lodge. The pet-friendly log home, which can sleep up to 22 people, is packed with entertainment options: pool, air-hockey, and foosball tables; arcades; a home theater; an outdoor hot tub; cable TV… And if that’s not enough, because it is located in the Arrowhead Resort, in summer you’ll have free access to the resort’s outdoor swimming pool. Plus the lodge is mere minutes from all the major attractions of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. A fabulous vacation is all but guaranteed.
Set among lush trees, Sleepy Bear Lodge has 2 large decks with rocking chairs so that everyone can bask in the crisp mountain breezes, the singing of larks and wrens during the day, and the chirping of crickets at night. The lower deck has a hot tub too. Its massaging jets of water will feel so rejuvenating when you return from hiking in the mountains or exploring every inch of Dollywood.
The main floor’s great room is another space you’ll enjoy relaxing in at the end of an action-packed day. It’s tough to say which is more comfortable: the spacious leather couches or the roomy recliner. There’s plenty of room for everyone to kick back and watch TV or to enjoy après-ski drinks by the fireplace.
The great room encompasses the dining area. The live-edge wood table seats 8, and there’s room for 3 more at the breakfast bar alongside it. Though you’re sure to enjoy at least some of your meals at the numerous nearby dinner theaters and restaurants, when you do dine in you’ll find all the appliances, cookware, and tableware you need in the well-equipped kitchen. There’s even a blender for whipping up margaritas or milkshakes, and a dishwasher for making cleanup a snap.
Sleepy Bear Lodge has 2 game rooms. In the loft, you can shoot pool, play foosball, or try to score at air hockey. The downstairs houses a Ms. Pac-Man arcade and a NOS racing arcade. Alongside the downstairs game, area is a home theater, complete with a large screen and 9 cinema-style seats. After enjoying private screenings here, you may never want to go to the cineplex again!
Of course, you have to sleep some time, and Sleepy Bear Lodge’s 7 bedrooms make it easy to catch up on your z’s. Every bedroom has its own flat-screen TV so you don’t have to miss out on your favorite late-night shows. Five of bedrooms feature a king-size bed. The 6th has queen-size bunk beds; so does the 7th, as well as a futon that opens into a bed for 2, so that 6 people can camp out in that room. The kids will love it; every night will feel like a slumber party. The sofa in the downstairs game room opens into bed for 2 as well.
The lodge’s 5 full bathrooms are spread out among the 3 floors. Two of the bathrooms have combination shower/tubs, while the other 3 each have both a shower and a spacious soaking tub.
Sleepy Bear Lodge’s other amenities include free WiFi, a washer, and a dryer. But the greatest amenity might be its location. In just 5 minutes you can drive to the Pigeon Forge Parkway, home to the Titanic Museum, the WonderWorks educational amusement park, dinner theaters, and more. Dollywood, Parrot Mountain and Gardens, and Gatlinburg Golf Course are less than 15 minutes away. And in less than a half-hour you can be hiking, biking, or riding horses in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or browsing the galleries, studios, and shops of the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. Also less than a half-hour’s drive is downtown Gatlinburg, home to the Guinness World Records Adventure, Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, and the tram that travels over the town to Ober Gatlinburg Amusement Park and Ski Area.
One thing’s for sure: There’s never a dull moment when you stay at Sleepy Bear Lodge. See for yourself: Book your stay today!
