Gatlinburg Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 bedrooms, 2 Baths, Awesome Mountain Views (Sleeps 4-8)


Welcome to “Dancing Bear”. Come and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains from this beautifully appointed 3 bedroom condo. Watch the mist come up over the mountains from one of TWO balconies. This top floor unit offers stunning views of downtown Gatlinburg, overlooking the ski slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains including Mount LeConte, one of the tallest mountains in the eastern United States.

The condominium has all the comforts of home so you can just relax and enjoy. The condo is a corner unit that gives more light, windows and more views, and is kept extremely clean, smoke free and pet free. Our resort offers an indoor pool and jacuzzis, as well as an outdoor pool.

Our family purchased this condo for our own and our guests’ enjoyment. It was previously used just as an owners retreat. The unit has a large loft with two twin beds as an extra bonus. Kids love to hang out in the loft and play. Our children call it their own private tree house. The loft even has a sky light so the kids can watch the stars come out while lying in bed.

Renovations and upgrades are done continuously. In 2014, a brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress/box spring was installed in the master bedroom. New flat screen LED LCD HDTVs were installed in all bedrooms with upgraded cable. Dedicated private high speed wireless internet was added to enable enhanced internet usage. In 2013, we installed brand new carpeting throughout the unit, new fireplace tile, large flat screen TV in the family room, and new beds in the loft and guest bedroom.

Every room has a ceiling fan, and the 20 foot tall vaulted ceiling in the family room gives our condo a spacious alpine feel. Open both balcony doors, and let the mountain breeze fill your home with fresh air.

Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have queen-size beds. With the additional sofa bed your home can sleep 8 people comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation.

Dancing Bear is the largest unit in the complex at 1100 square feet, and is located on the top floor so you will not be disturbed by anyone above you. Because we are on the top floor, no matter what the time of year, we offer the most breathtaking views you have ever seen.

Conveniently located to Ober Gatlinburg, downtown Gatlinburg, and the main Park Entrance, there is so much to do - from hiking, shopping, mini golf, the Aquarium, and of course, Ripley's Believe It Not. Not to mention all the incredible restaurants, and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge just down the road from Gatlinburg. Whether you curl up by the wood burning fireplace (with free unlimited wood provided), take in the sites in town, or just simply enjoy the most amazing year round views of the mountains, you will want to come back to Dancing Bear time and time again.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you choose Dancing Bear for your vacation getaway. Please don’t forget to check out our Facebook page “Dancing Bear Getaway” and like us.

About Jeff & Maria

My wife and I purchased this home for our family and friends to enjoy. We hope that you will also enjoy your vacation and think of our home as your home.

Jeff & Maria purchased this condo in 2009

Why Jeff & Maria chose Gatlinburg

After seeing pictures of the Smoky Mountains, I wanted to take my family there to take in all the splendor of the area, and it truly is a magical place to visit. The mountains are one of the most breathtaking I have ever seen, and they really are smoky!

The greatest feature for staying in our resort is the unmatched views. Another benefit is that it is only 3 miles from the town of Gatlinburg, with all the kids attractions, shopping, and restaurants, and just 10 minutes to the main entrance of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Also, it is only 5 minutes to Ober Gatlinburg for great skiing, ice-skating, or water park fun. In addition, our complex is the only one on the mountain that offers both an indoor pool with jacuzzis, and an outdoor pool.

What makes this condo unique

The biggest attraction for staying in our unit is the most spectacular views of the mountains. Our home is the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. The 20-foot tall vaulted ceiling gives it a real mountain feeling. The two balconies give everyone a chance to enjoy the outdoors and are really wonderful.

Children love the kids loft and really enjoy having their own space to hang out in and play. However, the biggest reason for staying in our unit always comes back to the amazing views of the beautiful Smoky Mountains that must be seen to be believed! Absolutely amazing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing time. The weather was great and the condo had plenty of space for our family. Saw a bear crossing Ski Mountain Road!

Amazing views! Perfect family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Well, you could say we stumbled upon a gem of a rental! This will be our home away from home from now on! We more than enjoyed your stay. Our family of 6 was completely pleased with this condo! The condo was perfect for our families needs! Many details of this condo were thoroughly thought through and then put into place! The Condo was much larger than we had expected form the pictures.

There was a nice entrance hallway to welcome you with Hooks for the kids hoodies upon walking in, along with a Great spot to line up the family shoes! The queen Size beds were comfortable and it was nice to be able to have Tv's , Cable and dvd players in each room! The older 2 children loved the loft and it became a great hideaway and fun adventure for them daily! I really loved having a master bathroom, (looks like it was recently renovated :) ) a nice quiet spot to get ready in the morning! Speaking of Mornings! If you can DO NOT miss the morning sunrise! If you can get up (not a problem for us with 4 small children lol) do and get that coffee going, sit watch and be sure to bring your camera!! You will not regret it! They are the most spectacular sunrises you will ever see!! Each morning is different and this location only adds to the joy of seeing such majesty up close!

We were quite pleased with the Kitchen and it's equipment Almost everything you could need is there for you! Including coffee for that first morning after your arrival, when you haven't hit the grocery store yet! So thoughtful of them to think of those little things, including the sugar and sweeteners, and even coffee creamer! What a nice surprise, when I thought we would have to head in to town minus our morning dose of caffeine!

Having unlimited firewood at our disposal was sooo unbelievably great! We loved having a real fire and took advantage of it nightly! (8 nights to be exact) Renters tip: definitely bring old newspaper and kindling with you or Buy in town, you will need it. We also found bringing in enough firewood for the next day helped it catch easier as it had some time to dry inside.

Our children 7, 5.5, 4, 2.5 years of age really loved that we were able to go swimming every day! The pool and hot tubs are a great way to unwind from the day and have some family fun! The location is so close to everything, once you drive down the mountain you are in the Hub of Gatlinburg. Or turn right and you are in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park! So much to do that will satisfy everyone!

Owner's Response: Hi Lindsay, Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and detailed review. It was a real pleasure to host your family, and we can't wait until you come back again to stay with us. Guests like your family make our job as property owners so easy!!

Mountain Condo

  • 5 of 5

Your mountain retreat was an excellent vacation spot for our family. The 2 bedrooms and the loft was a great fit for us. Whenever we were in the condo, the kids were playing in their loft.

The place was the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. It's the size of a cabin, but with all the amenities of a first rate resort. (The indoor pool was fantastic.)

Also, the pictures on the site don't do the views justice. They are simply incredible! Can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Dancing Bear. Our family takes great pride in our vacation home, and we love sharing it with others. We spent over one year looking at vacation properties, until we found just the right one. It is very satisfying to know that our guests feel this passionately about our place, and our goal is to make them truly feel at home when they are on vacation.

Great owner, great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

Jeff is pretty much the perfect Airbnb host. He made contact quickly by email and phone and made sure we were both comfortable with each other before we made a reservation. He is very friendly and helpful, providing a comprehensive info sheet that was heavy on useful instructions and light on rules.

The condo was clean and comfortable, with spacious sleeping areas and a great view from the living area. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped.

The complex is convenient to both the main park entrance and Gatlinburg, if you don't mind a little mountain driving. If you do mind, you should not be vacationing in the Smokies at all!

I highly recommend the owner and the unit.

Owner's Response: What a thoughtful review Bill, thank you. My wife and I strongly believe that good communication is essential for a nice stay for our guests. I also would like to add that having a wonderful guest such as yourself makes the whole process go that much smoother. Thanks again for choosing Dancing Bear for your vacation.

Best vacation rental experience!

Ober Gatlinburg Ski Resort

Our mountain getaway is located just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Ober Gatlinburg is just 1 mile away, and offers 4 seasons of family fun, from a water park in the summer to skiing and snow tubing in the winter.

Some of our guests’ favorite activities are Ripleys Believe It Or Not Museum, miniature golf, and the Sky Ride up the mountain. Two restaurants not to be missed - Bennett's Pit Barbecue for some of the best Tennessee barbecue, and Flapjacks offering their world famous peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes (Kids go crazy for them.)

To work off all the great food, try hiking in the Great Smoky National Park. Our favorite hike is called Laurel Falls. It is one of the easiest in the park, and not very long. The reward at the end of the trail is a beautiful 60-foot falls!

Or just sit back in the family room, or on one of your TWO balconies, and look at the most incredible views you have ever seen!

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, snowboarding, wildlife viewing, miniature golf, hot air balllooning
