About Johnny Duke

My wife and I are both educators. We bought Bear Haven primarily as a retreat to share with our sons. I grew up going to the Smoky Mountains on a semi-regular basis. Some of my favorite childhood memories are fall visits to see the leaves and nights walking the strip in Gatlinburg.

Johnny Duke purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Johnny Duke chose Gatlinburg

We love the location since my sons and I hike and fly-fish in the mountains, while my wife and daughter-in-law have access to unlimited shopping and bargain hunting in the area.

What makes this chalet unique

We love the tongue and groove paneling and the stone fireplaces. The deck is a nice place to relax under the shade of trees in the summer. While we have neighbors within sight, this is in an older section of Ski Mountains where the cabins are more spaced out.

Our Bear Haven Memories

  • 5 of 5
From East Coast (Asheville, NC, Knoxville, TN) to West Coast (San Diego, CA), the Basses met for vacation and made Bear Haven our home away from home.
It was more than we had hoped for or imagined. Everything we needed plus more was there. The nice clean cabin echoed the words "Welcome Home" when you unlocked the door.
The adults and grandkids enjoyed the pool table, hot tub, and swimming pool near by.
The hike and picnic in the mountains was so refreshing and our stroll downtown Gatlinburg was adventurous.
Our shared meals and board games around the table brought treasured memories to keep us smiling.
Owners Johnny and Vickie excel in customer service. We highly recommend this Vacation rental.

Wonderful Christmas Getaway! Loved it.

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas week at Bear Haven and it was a wonderful stay. We had two families, each with two teens. The cabin was perfect for hanging out, playing pool, watching TV and sitting in the hot tub. Other than the kitchen being too small for more than one person, I have zero issues with the cabin. Normally, kitchen size isn't a big deal, but we were making a traditional large Christmas dinner with turkey and trimmings. Otherwise, it had everything we needed. It was VERY clean, well appointed, and nicely situated less than a mile from Ober Gatlinburg. The owners were friendly, accessible, and made sure we were completely satisfied. Looking forward to staying here again sometime!!

Beautiful cabin and great location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in this cabin. The cabin was very clean and completely stocked with everything we could need. The rooms were comfortable and nicely decorated. The location was great in that we could easily get to either Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. We enjoyed being able to spread out and watch TV in either the upstairs or downstairs den areas. We were even lucky enough to see a family of black bears during our stay. However, the best thing about the cabin is the owners. They are kind, wonderful people who will go out of their way to make sure you are totally satisfied. They even went out of their way to mail us some things we had accidentally forgotten. Overall, this was one of the best cabins we have ever rented!

BEAUTIFUL HOME FOR OUR FAMILY VACA!

  • 5 of 5
We would LOVE to return to this vacation home someday! We are a family of seven -- six adults and our four-year old granddaughter. We had plenty of space for all of us -- to sleep, play cards, eat, and just hang out and relax. The home was beautiful, very clean, and had everything we needed for our home away from home. We cooked in most meals and had all of the essential kitchen tools at our disposal. The beds were comfy and the hot tub was very relaxing. Water pressure was great and there was plenty of hot water. When there are three women in the house, that is essential! Ha. Johnny was very helpful and provided an abundance of information about the home and the surrounding area. Within three days of checkout, he had already refunded my damage deposit. That's awesome! Thanks, Johnny!

Other info: Since we had a small child with us, we didn't want to do a difficult hike, so we took the trail to Laurel Falls. It was gorgeous and she did quite well on the hike. We took the tram up the mountain and rode the alpine slide. Very fun for all of us and the view was lovely. We also spent one afternoon river tubing on the Little River. We used Smoky Mountain River Rat in Townsend and had a wonderful time, The water was COLD, but you get used to it after a while. Ha. The float is very relaxing. A few fun "rapids", but mostly just a nice, relaxing float down. We also enjoyed our visit to Sugarland Shine in Gatlinburg where the adults took part in the moonshine tasting. The tasting was a lot of fun and we did make a couple purchases while there. Sips Up! Gatlinburg was a fun town -- lots of things to see, do and taste. My husband doesn't really iike crowds, so we didn't spend a whole lot of time down there. While in the area, we also had family pictures taken. We used Rich Blessings Photography by Christine. We haven't seen all of the pictures yet, but the sneak peeks she provided are AWESOME. Christine was great to work with and, of course, the scenery is to die for, so I know the rest of the pictures will be great.

We had a great time in the Great Smoky Mountains and LOVED our beautiful vacation home. The pictures and description are accurate and it was clean and well-maintained. I have already recommended it to a co-worker. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, Johnny! We hope to return again. Maybe we'll see a bear or two next time. :-)

Bear Haven

  • 5 of 5
This property is nicely located close to Ober Gatlinburg and downtown Gatlinburg. The cabin was very clean and nicely laid out for family vacations. We enjoyed staying here as it was close to town but feels like you are away from it all. My family would stay there again anytime. The owners are very nice and helpful with anything you need.

GREAT place to spend a week!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from spending a great week at Bear Haven. This cabin is very comfortable, well maintained, and well outfitted for a relaxing getaway.

There we seven of us -- 5 kids from 7 through 18, and they loved the pool table, hot tub, and swimming pools. Plenty of space, well supplied kitchen, and all-around comfort. We had breakfast in every day, and dinner one night.

Was easy to find in a very quiet area. Saw a family of bears just a short distance away on the last day. Close to the clubhouses if you need them, and only minutes down the hill to Gatlinburg, about 2 mins from Ober G. and about 5 minutes from the bypass.

Can imagine this would be a fantastic place in the winter too.

Great value here. Perfect for family with kids or for a group of adults.

We would definately stay here again.
