Our Guest Shared the Joy!

During the winter season the Smoky Mountain area delights its guest with an array of glistening lights. As the participation throughout the area has increased, more visuals are added with each turning year. So, we decided to ask our guest what about Winterfest and Winter Magic allures you to the Smokies, what is it that brings you or your loved ones joy? Is is it the season, the lights, the events, or the ambiance of a winter cabin? We asked that our participants submit photos that display and give visual representation of their Joy. The fun behind this particular contest, was that the meaning was different to each person. Here are a few samples submitted by Share the Joy contestants.

Our winner was Nancy Colby for the city of Gatlinburg during the winter, gives her joy. Nancy was awarded a gift certificate for a FREE 2 Night Stay in one of our 2 Bedroom cabins.

Black Bear Pictures — Gatlinburg, TN

American Black Bear

We love living in the Smokies, and part of that experience is the American Black Bear.  The Great Smoky Mountains have the the largest American Black Bear population east of the Mississippi River.  And for years, families have tried to snap that perfect bear picture while on vacation to Gatlinburg.  We wanted to take this opportunity to share our most recent entries into our Black Bear Photo Contest.  Click on the pictures below for a closer view!

PLEASE REMEMBER — Willfully approaching within 50 yards (150 feet), or any distance that disturbs or displaces a bear, is illegal in the park. Violation of this federal regulation can result in fines and arrest. Use binoculars, telephoto lens, or a spotting scope to view the animals.
