Our family has vacationed in the Smokies for three generations. Twice annually for a week at a time, plus frequent three day weekends we hit the trails for picnicking, fishing, hiking, local attractions, and “yes” even shopping. Finally my husband and I were presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase an acre of land that borders the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. This land was previously unavailable for sale, so when it became available we jumped at the chance. Then came the process of building our dream home. After a lengthy design process, which incorporated ideas from family and friends, came the 13 month construction period. The “result” is a spectacular, yet inviting and relaxing log home nestled between the Appalachian Mountains and the spruce and fir forest that covers them. Here nature converges with both the indoor and outdoor living spaces to heighten our senses of the beauty that surrounds us. Our memories are many……happy times spent with family and friends observing holidays and celebrating birthdays, graduations and a myriad of other special occasions. Sunrises and sunset against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful places on earth are enduring. We have also enjoyed learning about the history of East Tennessee, the people and their customs. As the circle of life evolves, we find that we spend less time in our mountain paradise. However, we want to offer you, your family and friends the opportunity to create your own memories in our mountain retreat. We hope you will find time to soak in the peace and tranquility that this most special and wondrous place offers.

A BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our family here. We were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the beauty of the this mountain home. Granted, it is at the top of a steep and winding road, but it is well worth the drive. We had space enough for everyone and there were private spaces for anyone who wanted some time alone. The porches are breathtaking. We watched the mist roll in over the trees every morning and evening. One evening a black bear came up to the shrubbery around the patio. We all thought that was the highlight of the week! The kitchen is large and has about everything you need. We really appreciated the two refrigerators. Everyone thought the decor all over the house was absolutely beautiful. We were well pleased with this rental.

BEST VACATION HOUSE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Papa Bears Den!! The attention to detail was amazing! I loved the little signs around the house letting you know what is where. The house is amazing! We had a black bear come right up to the house and we observed him from the upper porch. We loved the rocking chairs and gliders outside and loved star gazing at night. We had a group of 14 ranging in age from 4-60's and it was perfect for everyone!! We would love to come back one day! Highly recommended!!! Thank you for opening your beautiful mountain cabin for others to enjoy!!! The best vacation ever!!!

The experience could not have been better! Immaculate, spacious, quite,and well appointed the "cabin" was perfect for us. One question: How did you get the bear to come out of the woods to check us out as we were packing to leave. Truely an exciting and memorable expierence for all hands.

Myself and 8 girl friends stayed in Papa Bears Den. We had a wonderful time. The place was great and when we called for something they came right away. We would use them again. It is a little off the beaten path but after we drove it a few times it didn't seem as far. Thank you for allowing us to have such an enjoyable vacation.

GREAT WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Our group has been renting cabins in the Pigeon Forge/ Gatlinburg area for 10 years and without question this home is one of the best. The structure is not cookie cutter like the vast majority in the area nor are the furnishings and décor builder grade (it has a very warm and welcoming feel). Worth noting; we cook nearly all of the meals on our weekends and this home has the best equipped kitchen we've ever seen...no question. The only slight drawback I can think to mention is that two of the bedrooms have unattached baths. Having 5 couples in our group we don't prefer that setup but it was by no means problematic either.
