Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with us. It was everything that we could have imagined. What you see in the pictures is what you get in this home. I also wrote this review on VRBO in case you saw it there as well. The view from the back deck is stunning - the home itself very comfortable and warm. We did not see a bear but there were bear paw prints on the trash container outside. The home is situated between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg on the Spur. It is very close to the Bypass which gives you access to the Park without dealing with the Gatlinburg traffic. We go to the Smokies at least twice a year and this home had it all and was possibly the best one we have stayed in. It is also pet friendly (we brought our 4-legged daughter), but you would never know it had pets in it. We are already trying to decide when our next trip will be and will book this home if available.
