Every vacation is designed to be different from all the ones that went before it, but when you want a getaway that stands out, escape to Tennessee and our Kaizen Rentals Angel View cabin. Nestled in the heart of America and offering peace, tranquility and almost heartbreaking views of the trees and a hint of something special just beyond, your journey to our treehouse in the woods will be one that brings joy to your own heart. Featuring 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, our cabin ensures that up to 6 guests can enjoy their time in the Great Smoky Mountains comfortably and without stepping on each other’s toes. As you swing in the rattan hammock-style chair on the front porch with a jar of Old Smoky Moonshine in hand, you may wonder if getting back to work and your hometown is so important after all!
We have learned that the smaller, simpler things in life often create the biggest impact on our hearts and Angel View is the perfect example. Built of logs and glass, guests will feel welcomed and at home within seconds of stepping inside. Knotty pine walls, real wood floors, and vaulted ceilings paneled in more knotty pine keep the space feeling open and spacious, and views through sparkling clean windows ensure that the forest of mature trees is always within sight.
Spend hours napping in front of a wood-burning fire, built in the stone fireplace that climbs up to the ceiling or channel surf on the surprisingly modern state-of-the-art television perched on the wooden mantel; Angel View combines the beauty of nature and simpler times with modern conveniences that include WiFi, streaming services, and surprisingly, cell phone service as well!
The hammock-style chair on the front porch isn’t the only one and the one hanging from the ceiling of the living room provides a cozy reading nook that will make guests reluctant to leave the pages of the book they have lost themselves in. The open-concept floor plan of this cozy cabin allows guests to stay connected as they do their own thing in spaces that are clearly delineated for specific use. The dining room table, located directly behind the plush sofa in the living area, offers the perfect spot to play games, eat meals, or even watch the television.
Take a few more steps beyond the large wood table and you will find yourself in a charming and modern fully equipped kitchen. The wood walls are painted a dramatic charcoal hue, adding interest and contrast to the country-style cabinets, stone countertops, and open shelving (top shelves) that help keep the room from feeling closed in and claustrophobic.
Stainless steel appliances include a dishwasher because we know that no matter how stunning the views from the window over the sink are, no one wants to spend their vacation washing dishes by hand! The table doubles as a center island, offering enough seats for every seat in your traveling party, while also providing extra space for meal prep if needed.
Every inch of Angel View promises to bring comfort and joy to all who reside within, but when you step outside many of your vacation dreams will come true. Out here in the canopy of the trees lies a rustic wood picnic table where meals will just taste better simply because you are dining al fresco. And although we understand the appeal of a gas grill, the best barbecue always tastes better when grilled with charcoal and a charcoal grill is what you will find outside the cabin. The biggest surprise, however, lies under the cozy outdoor nook, shielded from the elements but still providing an open-air feel, the bubbling hot tub will be the site of your most relaxing adventures! Nothing is more luxurious and restful than lounging in a hot tub on a cool night in the mountains unless it is lounging in that hot tub while rain falls on the tin roof above it!
Nighttime at Angel View
Some people may love the frenetic excitement of a night on the town in the big city, but we at Kaizen Rentals know that the best nights will be the ones you spend in our cozy bedrooms! Queen beds are in both rooms with one offering a futon that will be a treat for a toddler who wants to be a “big boy” but is still scared to sleep too far away from his parents. A deep slipper tub in one bath provides more soaking opportunities and a sleek white shower lined with subway tiles will allow for a quick getaway in the mornings when guests are anxious to start their Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg explorations!
Some vacations just deserve to be a little bit more extra. Life is chaotic and crazy, and you, your family, and friends deserve an escape from reality that is better because you are spending them together! Maybe you are interested in a family reunion, letting the next generation of cousins run wild as you did when you were young, or maybe the biggest day of your life is one you want to share with family in an extra special location, perhaps the Smoky Mountains. Or maybe your group of high school friends want to celebrate all the decades of friendship you have enjoyed. Whatever your reasons for a Smoky Mountain vacation with a group of up to 30 guests, Bear Pen Gap Resort offers the homes that will comfort, spoil, and become an integral part of your super-sized Tennessee vacation!
There Aren’t Enough Words
Offering four separate homes, fully furnished with everything you need to relax and play, Bear Pen Gap Resort will not disappoint, and because all the properties offer something special, there shouldn’t be any squabbles over who gets which cabin! Choose Big Bear Lodge with its 4 bedrooms, private pool, and year-round hot tub and share the space with 14 of your beloved friends or family members. The views are amazing, and multiple decks and seating areas will give everyone the perfect spot to enjoy them all. Offering a wrap-around porch that is screened in, game room with foosball table and arcade game, and a primary suite with its own fireplace, private deck, and serene vibe, this comfortable and luxurious home will make you feel right at home.
Home number two, Momma Bear Cabin, is a smaller space, offering 2 bedrooms and room for 6 guests, plus your favorite fur baby. Also featuring a private hot tub, in-room Jacuzzis in both rooms, if you can tear yourself away from the views of Mount Le Conte, we will be extremely surprised! The third home in the resort, Bare Bear Cabin, promises romance, charm, and a heart-shaped jacuzzi you will want to spend as much time in as possible. All the homes offer their own outdoor hot tubs, and Bare Bear Cabin’s sits on a private deck overlooking the woods, offering more views of which you will never tire, and room for three guests and fur baby! (Pet fees are additional from the rental costs)
The final property is a sweet little cabin known as Baby Bear—no surprise there! And although it is the smallest of the four, a studio cabin, it roars mightily in amenities. A hot tub on the deck, a Jacuzzi in the room, and pet friendly as well, this hideaway sleeps two, and the views are, as you might expect, spectacular!
An All-American Vacation Experience
It’s hard to find a vacation experience more all-American than a trip to the Smoky Mountains, and the cabins in our Bear Pen Gap Resort reflect your getaway. Mountain themed decors include wood floors and colorfully painted walls add warmth to the spaces while fireplaces in all four cabins provide a more concrete warmth while adding romance to your escape to the mountains. Each of the “bears in the pen” provide fully equipped kitchens and guests can share a “Big Chill” experience in the main cabin or enjoy some peaceful moments preparing meals in the kitchens of the spaces they chose to make their own. Obviously, everyone will want to spend summer days hanging out poolside in the big cabin, but the hot tubs that are open to the stars on every deck will be great for private moments when you are just ready for a little alone time! Bear Pen Gap does offer Wi-Fi, but due to its secluded location in the mountains, it can be intermittent, but that just means you will be “forced” to enjoy more family time! Playing video games, watching movies in the theater room, or gathering into teams for board game night will ensure that no one will ever hear the dreaded phrase “I’m bored!”
And as you and family and/or friends take the fun outside, sitting on decks overlooking the most beautiful landscape you will ever see in your life, raise a toast to another perfect Tennessee sunset while sipping wine or a local moonshine, submerge yourself in the depths of bubbling hot tubs under the stars staring up at the vast and velvety night sky dotted with stars, and celebrate that crazy family you love with all your heart. Feel comfortable and at home for your Tennessee grand adventures when you choose Bear Pen Gap for your vacation in paradise. Reserve it today!
