Big Bear Log Cabins are found in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains in beautiful Macon County, North Carolina. Our charming North Carolina vacation rentals are located on a quiet wooded mountainside conveniently off of Hwy 441 in Franklin.

Our cozy, fully furnished vacation log homes are a real breath of fresh air from the typical motel chains and are perfect for your next family vacation or that special honeymoon getaway. The brand new, rustic log cabins sleep 4 adults comfortably in 2 bedrooms with queen beds; however, with a queen futon and loft, each can sleep up to 8. Click here to see photos of our real log cabins with log furniture and all the amenities you need, including FREE WI-FI. In addition, we have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house on the same property that has been recently renovated and furnished.  It comes complete with wood floors, all appliances, rustic furnishings and will sleep 8 very comfortably.  Will work well for one large family or two smaller ones.

With spectacular long-range views, plenty of wildlife and lovely mountain trails nearby, our secluded mountain cabins not only offer privacy but also a true mountain experience. Plus, they make a perfect base location for all area attractions – Hiking, white water rafting, fishing, horseback riding, gem mining, antique shopping, golfing, waterfall tours, and so much more! Click here for a list of all the things you can do for true recreation and fun.

North Carolina is famous for its hospitality and easy going lifestyle. Call today to make a reservation, and get ready to experience the relaxation, adventure, romance, natural beauty, and good times that are North Carolina’s Smokey Mountains.

Retreat to Big Bear Log Cabins and get close to nature and the ones you love.

 ** Note to Asheville vacationers – If you’re planning to enjoy the hiking, rafting, and other outdoor activities in the Smokies, staying with us rather than in the city is probably a more convenient option. Plus, you just might find that you enjoy the peace and quiet over the hustle and bustle of the city. We’re an easy 1 hour drive from Asheville, so visiting the city would be simple. Then, you could come back home to your mountain retreat!

Our offices are located at the south entrance to the Whistle Stop Mall. If you're passing through, come by and see us.
