Gatlinburg Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

'Bear Paws' is a studio cabin that is close to all attractions in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. It has been completely remodeled, including all new furniture and appliances. It has a beautiful view, that is impossible to describe. It is close to Dollywood, you would be able to visit in the morning, come home to the cabin for a 'Paws', and return to Dollywood for the night festivities.

Upon entering 'Bear Paws' there is a full kitchen with everything you will need, if you want to cook at 'home'. In this room there is a comfortable, red-leather sofa. The sofa opens to a queen bed for extra sleeping options.

There is a large, black, oval Jacuzzi for your relaxation while watching TV or reading.

The queen size sleigh bed is fitted with plush linens. You will also enjoy plush linens in the bath.

The main highlight of course is the private, balcony with a large hot-tub. Enjoy the magnificent view from the rocking chairs or hot-tub. A perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee or an evening drink while watching the sunset over the mountains.

The cabin is always immaculate, as I clean it myself and I make sure it is cleaned to perfection.

Keywords: Escape and relax as you create memories!. No waiting in line to check in, go directly to your 'cabin'! Our perfect cabin for each and every individual guest. WELCOME

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 fortunate to buy 'Bear Paws' in 2010. 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.

Charlene Bratcher purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Charlene Bratcher chose Gatlinburg

We chose the location of our rental, 'Bear Paws', 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.

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 in the cabin. 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. 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 ($25) Decorated with banners/balloons ($15) Mixed snack tray (ex: chips, cookies, crackers, dips, etc..)($25) candles for candle light dinner ($10) bed of fresh fragrant rose petals($20)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for our wonderful stay in Bear Paws. The first thiing I said to my husband was, whoever said there was no view and people could see you from the pool, must not have stayed here. I have never seen such a majestic view and there is no way you can be seen in your hot-tub from the pool. You have complete privacy!!!We will be back!!!

Breath Taking

  • 5 of 5
Let me say, This was about the most wonderful place we have ever been to. The cabin was just great to be in. The view was breath taking from the deck on the back. We went out ever morning to set and watch the sun come up. There is a hot tub that we spent ever night watching the sun go down. You could not ask for a more quite place to be. The owner is the sweetie's woman you would ever in your life want to meet. She is so kind hearted and is willing to work with you and answer ever question you may have no matter what it may be. She also does wedding ( she done our's while we were there and done a great job.) My new wife and I were very happy with everything and will be back. Thanks Charlene For everything, You are the best !

We were a tad bit disappointed in our stay. The cabin is nice and clean, however the negatives out weigh the positives. The jacuzzi tub was dirty and had to be cleaned before use, it takes forever to fill and once it does the jets are broken. The fireplace doesn't work, the shower knob is to easy to bump and when you do the water heater is not set to a normal temperature and it burns you quickly. The hot tub and balcony are very nice, however you have no privacy in the hot tub from the guests playing at the game room/pool area. The view wasn't as breath taking as the ad states either.....I would not recomend staying here!

Owner's Response: The hot tub is very private, there is a privacy fence on the balcony. You have to lean over the balcony to even see the pool, so there is no way anyone can see you. The pool is not close or even in view. At this time the pool is not even open, the water was not even in it, so I really don't understand how you saw kids playing in the pool. The game room certainly cannot be seen from BEAR PAWS. The view is magnificent, the actual view is on the home page of our web site, The view is of Mt. Le Conte. I personally checked the shower and it is normal as to water temperature. BEAR PAWS has been open for the past 3 years, and booked almost daily, with never a complaint about water temperature, or the Jacuzzi not working. We live beside BEAR PAWS and would have been more than happy to come show you how to turn on the jets, as all of them are working fine. I am sorry you were a tad bit disappointed, we make sure every stay is perfect for every guest. If there is a problem please let us know while you are here, we respond immediately to any questions or concerns. Our guest satisfaction is our number 1 goal, this is the reason we have repeat customers time after time. Sincerely, Charlene

Relaxing !

  • 5 of 5
Just a sweet note to let anyone thinking about staying at this cabin don't hesitate . We booked this 2 day getaway at the last second and I couldn't be more happy about our choice . The owners were great to deal with, super friendly, and helpful . I Loved the cabin and all the decorations the owners had used. The hot tub was my favorite ! This cabin is close to EVERYTHING yet away from it all at the same time .
I had left my BP cuff at the cabin . I called the owner who got it in the mail to me ASAP . It says a lot for her cleaning crew to turn this in , as it was very expensive . Honest people are still around .... who knew .

Wondeful honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5
As this was my first time booking a cabin using one of these sites I was nervous. But from the moment we arrived for our honeymoon we felt at home! The owners put a few small little touches in the room that were just wonderful. The cabin was cute and cozy and the view was great! We didn't use the jacuzzi but the hot tub was wonderful and relaxing with a great view of the mountains. We ran into the owners a couple times and they were very friendly and immediately addressed any issues/questions we had (nothing major!). I already told me husband we need to come back and that I wanted to stay at the same cabin. The cabin is close enough to Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg but the grill, pool, hot tub, and game room on the property are great for a night in. My only piece of advice- if you are from a flat land area such as Ohio, the property is on a mountain so expect curves/hills. It's not a bad drive but I'd recommend arriving during daylight the first night (if possible) to make it easier to find the cabin if like us youre not used to mountain driving. I can't wait to come back for our first anniversary! Thank you so much for a wonderful honeymoon!

This cabin was perfect for a romantic weekend away. My husband and I loved it. The owner added some personal touches that made it really special. We've been to the Smokies a few times and this was by far my favorite cabin. We hope to visit again soon!
