Gatlinburg Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

'Bear Naked' is a one bedroom cabin that is secluded, yet close to all attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. After passing a majestic mountain view, you will drive around a curve and 'Bear Naked' will come into view.

The cabin has rocking chairs for your enjoyment on the front porch. A huge beautiful Blue Spruce adorns the front of the cabin. After walking through a red welcome door, you will enter the living room. In this room there is a comfortable couch for reading or viewing the surround sound TV. There is a new hickory Amish rocking chair in the living room for your pleasure.. The sofa opens into a queen bed for extra sleeping options.

There is a full kitchen with everything you will need if you want to cook at 'home'.

The bath and bedroom have luxury linens. Upon entering the bedroom the first thing you will see is the red, heart shaped jacuzzi. The bed has double pillow-tops for your relaxation. The bed, dining table, and coffee table are made of cane and hickory wood, very beautiful.

The main highlight of course is the private, screened in balcony with a large hot-tub. This is a very private area so you can relax and enjoy the mountain foliage.

The cabin is always immaculate. I make sure it is cleaned to perfection.

About Charlene Bratcher

I, Charlene, have visited the Great Smoky Mountain National Park since I was a child. I introduced the mountains to my husband, Bruce and daughter, Ansleigh. We have vacationed in Gatlinburg, several times a year, for the last 13 years. During the last 5 years we have actively searched for a cabin. God blessed us with the perfect cabin and even a rental cabin in September, 2009. We were also blessed with jobs, I am a teacher and Bruce is working for with the National Park service. Our daughter loves her school. We have a boxer, Daisy, who even loves the beautiful walks, and especially the wildlife. In 2010 we were blessed with another cabin 'Bear Paws'. 'Bear Paws has a majestic view. See vrbo listing # 300489

Charlene Bratcher purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Charlene Bratcher chose Gatlinburg

We chose the location of our rental, 'Bear Naked', and our home, because of its close proximity to both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We are minutes from Dollywood, dinner theatres, and other family oriented activities in Pigeon Forge. We are just as close to Gatlinburg, where we enjoy shopping, browsing and dining out. If you are looking for a more commercial area, Sevierville is equally as close, as this is where I work. There are hundreds of free activities in the Great Smoky Mountains.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is very unique because it is individualized for YOU. We want to share our happiness of owning the cabin, with YOU. We go the extra mile to insure a wonderful experience for YOU. The cabin will be personalized as YOU wish. If you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion just contact me. I can have a birthday cake, balloons and the cabin decorated prior to your visit. For honeymooners, champagne, and roses can already be on the red, heart-shaped jacuzzi when you arrive. If you want to surprise a special someone, a bed of roses would be so fragrant and beautiful. A snack basket or fruit basket can be waiting for you to enjoy upon arrival. If you are anxious to get to the cabin or too tired to stop for dinner, an assortment of breads, cheeses, and sandwich meats can be already in the cabin for you. There is a wonderful Amish bakery and sandwich shop nearby, with lots of homemade bread, cheeses and other goodies that I could have whatever YOU want for a meal. If you would just like dessert and coffee, that can also be available. Use your imagination, let me do the shopping and decorating for YOU. We want your experience in our cabin to be one that you will remember, and hopefully can become a tradition.

Sample Pricing: Dozen roses or mixed bouquet($35) Cake for any occasion ($25) Champagne ($35) Meat/cheese/bread/pickles/condiments/tray ($40) Fruit tray ($30) Decorated with banners/balloons ($15) Mixed snack tray (ex: chips, cookies, crackers, dips, etc..)($25) candles for romantic candle light dinner ($10) bed of fresh fragrant rose petals ($25)

Guestbook comments from the owner

could not have asked for anything better. It was just as perfect as we remember from being here last year! The view and the rocking chairs were our favorite part. Thanks for everything. We will definitely be back next year to celebrate 3 years of marriage.

I cant say enough wonderful things about this cabin and the owner, Charlene! My boyfriend and I came up for our anniversary and were not disappointed! I requested for wine and chocolate covered strawberries to be at the cabin for our romantic weekend, she delivered! The strawberries were amazing! We did not get to enjoy all the amenities of the cabin as much as we would have liked since we were in town most of the time, but it had everything we could have wanted. Loved all the extra touches. Charlene's written directions into Gatlinburg were extremely helpful. The cabin was secluded and quiet, with a beautiful view. We had such a good time, we didnt want to leave. We hope to be back in the very near future!

LOVE this cabin!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was absolutely perfect for our 4th wedding anniversary! I could not have been more pleased. The cabin is adorable, and Ms. Charlene and her family were nothing but helpful. She had sweet little touches all around the cabin: pillow candies, a tray on the bed with wine glasses, candles strewn about, hot tub running. She also had very helpful directions to major areas of interest on the coffee table for us, as well as a basket full of fun things to do and vacation guides on the fireplace.

We had a wonderful time enjoying Gatlinburg, but we loved the serenity of the cabin so much that we stayed in our last full day! We even got to play with her adorable little lab, Sammy, and ooohh and ahhh at a precious litter of kittens. The view of the mountains from the pool was astonishing!

We absolutely loved our stay! A big thank you to Ms. Charlene and her family for their generosity and hospitality. We hope everyone enjoys this little piece of Heaven as much as we did!

Cute cabin

  • 2 of 5
Upon arrival I was very excited about this cabin but the longer we stayed the less impressed I became. All of the drawers in the kitchen were broken (including the one under the oven). The shower curtain was mildewed and needed to be replaced. The worst part of the stay was the fact that the sheets and towels smelled like they had been left in the washing machine wet for a week and then dried. The sour smell was overwhelming and when the towels were used to dry your face & hair you were then left with that smell for the day. I expected the owner to come up and check on us during our stay and I was going to mention it to her then but we never saw her. Only on the day that we were supposed to leave did we go out to our car and find a hand written scrap of paper with our balance written on it. The other issue I have is that when we spoke with the owner before we arrived she was very insistent upon us paying in cash. I'm not sure why because the VRBO site said that she could take credit cards. Another warning to anyone looking to stay here is this cabin is located up a very winding and narrow road. Please don't drive anything too large to stay here.

Owner's Response: I allowed you to be our guest for 1 night, there is usually a 2 niight minimum. As our guest you have our phone number and know where we live. As you were only here for 1 night I had no way of knowing the time of your arrival. If you had notified me of any of the above mentioned problems, I always respond immediatedly, no matter of the time. The kitchen drawers are on rollers and could have easily slipped off track. I would have been happy to come put them on track for you. There is no excuse for a mildewed shower curtain, I would have brought a new one to you immediatedly and put it up in less than 5 minutes. I have spoken with my cleaner about this problem as well as how the sheets smelled. I wish you would have given me the chance to correct any problem while you are here. The reason for the note on your car is because we did not see or hear from you as your cabin is not visible from our home, but you rode directly by our house and there is even a sign directing you to it. Due to a 1 night stay there was not enough time for me to clear your credit, and you told me not to worry you would be paying by cash. The drive to BEAR NAKED is a drive way not a highway. It is only around a small curve, most of our guest just walk down from the cabin to the pool and game room. I am very sorry about your stay not being perfect, but it is our goal to make sure every guest is pleased with their stay. Please in the future if there are problems let us know at the time, not after you leave.

This was our first experience in the Tennessee area. Looked at many different places to stay before finding this one. The pictures do not do this place justice. The cabin is fabulous and the little amenities that were left by the owners were so nice. It was very clean and well maintained. It was just far enough out of the way that we had the privacy that we were looking for, but close enough to Gatlingburg and Pigeon Forge to do everything that we wanted to do. Loved the hot tub! We hope to come back in the future and maybe bring our son to the area with us. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet get away! Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable.
