Keep your eyes open
Many Gatlinburg TN vacations have become sweet family memories. Have you seen a bear in Cades Cove or anywhere in the area, for that matter? You will never forget that encounter.
This is why we advise our guests to stay alert as they enter or exit the property. The bears have been quite active this year. We have seen a mama bear with three cubs on Hwy. 321. Somebody else has spotted a mama bear with four cubs in Cades Cove. That is very rare, but it proves it can happen.
As long as you are outside, we recommend that you keep your eyes and ears open to the sights and sounds around you. You do not want to get between a mama bear and her cubs. She would not know you did not mean to disturb her.
