Bear Heaven was perfect!
THANK YOU DONNA & REX!!! This is one cozy cabin with room for 4 people that is located 1/2 way between Gatlinburg and Sevierville. Just a short drive from the tourist destinations of Pigeon Forge but far enough that you can get away from the craziness. My son and I stayed in this cabin for a short spring break and found everything exactly like it states in the description. The loft with a pool table and futon was perfect for my 12 year old. The outdoor hot tub was new and clean. The interior was spotless and very accommodating for the two of us. There is a small flat screen TV in the cabin (Where we watched the Cats defeat the Cards) with cable TV and a VCR / DVD (standard def) & several small wooden games and a deck of cards as well. A real fireplace (open Nov-March). Upstairs by the pool table is a small music player. Donna & Rex's other cabin is just next door so if you have a larger family retreat book both. If you are looking for a nice cabin at a very good rate this is perfect for you. Jacuzzi tub upstairs in the loft, nice comfortable king bed with full bath downstairs. Bring your steak and grill out on the charcoal grill or have a great hamburger down the street at Mel's Diner (which has a great breakfast as well). You are 5 minutes away from all the go kart tracks, putt putt golf, zip lines, magic shops, tourist shopping etc. but you wouldn't know it from where the cabin is located.
Suggestions for entertainment:
If you haven't been to the area before it's worth a drive into Gatlinburg and taking the Ober Gatlinburg sky tram up to the ski area. This is a step back in time (60's & 70's) to when Gatlinburg was a much smaller and less touristy sleepy town. The tram gets full so get to the front of the line for best viewing. Then take the Scenic Chairlift up to the top of the mountain for great views or get off midway and ride the fast Alpine Slide, great for the kid in all of us!
TOP RATED ATTRACTIONS
Ripley's aquarium is legit. I've visited aquariums across the country and this one is a quality attraction.
Wonder Works (Sevierville) is the exploratorium adventure for the kids. Tesla coil, crazy rides and a sky walk rope area 5 stories tall. Get their early before 1pm or come back after 6 to avoid the lines for the top attractions. Don't miss the magic show featuring Terry Evanswood. Humor, suspense and very good slight of hand tricks. It's worth the Ultimate Combo ticket to see it all.

Owner's Response: We appreciate it when our guest take the time to give us a review. This is an important tool to many other potential guest! I do want to clarify that our other cabin is not next door to this cabin. It is just around the corner within easy walking distance though.
