Watch three bear cubs bathe in a Tennessee Airbnb pool

Bear sightings in the Smoky Mountains occur more often. Maybe it’s because we all have cameras on our phones now, and maybe it’s because they have little space left to have tourist attractions and resorts nearby.

They can’t escape us and they don’t want to either. We have great food and enjoy fun things like hot tubs and swimming pools. Who can resist these things?

Certainly not three cubs in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They saw an opportunity to have a little fun and cool off, so they took it.

Here’s how it went for the family in Airbnb.

When you unknowingly pay for dinner and a show – Ultimate Airbnb escape (@smokymountainchalets). I took a video of bear cubs jumping into our Airbnb pool, my toddlers have literally never been so excited and I was afraid the Airbnb hosts would blame me for ruining their pool. The hosts were crazy cool and now my toddlers want a bear.

Looked. They look like teenagers who just got caught in the neighbor’s pool. LOL
