Our Black Bear Lodge



We have spent many summers and winters vacationing in the valleys that hold Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville. Finally, it is with deep pride and great pleasure that we have purchased our first property in the area, and we'd like to share the experience with you. 


We hope you and your crew have a wonderful time in the cabin. Summers and winters in Tennessee have always been among the best vacations we've ever had. We hope your vacation at Our Black Bear Lodge is the same.


We have put a lot of love and labor into building and designing this cabin. This is truly our home away from home, and we hope it becomes yours, too.


-The Echeniques-



 After the original property burned to the ground in the wildfires of 2016, John and Kathy Godar sold the property to Carlos and Marisela Echenique. The Echeniques have rebuilt Our Black Bear Lodge from the ground up adding their own flair. 


"The Great Smoky Mountains are filled with adventure. You might pass bear cubs playing by the side of the road, see sharks swimming over your head, or take in a view that takes you above the clouds — all in the same afternoon. So give us a visit and we’ll give your family something they’ll never forget.

Welcome to Gatlinburg, Tennessee."
