Gatlinburg Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Luxury Log Cabin 3 minutes from Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Comm

'It's as if you can reach out and grab Mount LeConte' said one of our recent guests.

The mountain views are glorious no matter the season: fresh greens in the Spring, beautiful Fall reds, yellows and oranges, and white snow cap peaks in the Winter.

Enjoy these mountain views from one of three large decks, or while relaxing in our hot tub on the romantic candlelit gazebo.

You can smell the clean fresh wood. This newer log cabin is decorated with beautiful 'authentic' Log furnishings and pine floors, walls and ceilings throughout.

We've tried to think of everything to accommodate our guests, down to the coffee maker brewing above 200 degrees for perfect coffee, and coffee grinder with Colombian bean coffee so that our log cabin 'Bears Repeating.'

A dining table and island in the kitchen, two picnic tables on the main deck, log rockers, and a fully equipped kitchen provide for wonderful family gatherings.

Couches and chairs are leather for easy cleaning and care.

Bears Repeating sleeps 14 people. Two king master suites, a queen suite, double bunk beds in the fourth bedroom, along with two queen sofa sleepers; perfect for multiple or large families.

The upstairs master honeymoon suite has it's own double Jacuzzi whirlpool tub.

Wi-Fi throughout; flat panel HDTV with Netflix in each bedroom, and easy access to HDMI input for video game consoles (bring your HDMI cable, consoles, games, and controllers).

The TV room has a 70 inch Smart HDTV with Netflix streaming, great for family movies or ballgames; upstairs Family Room has a 40 inch Smart HDTV with Netflix streaming.

And don't forget the Settler's Ridge pool. Great for a family cookout while the kids enjoy a swim after a busy day of hiking or visiting the sites.

'Bears Repeating' is centrally located, near to all the attractions in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and the Great Smoky Mountains without the stress of traffic.

In the mountains, as you can imagine, seasonal access to your cabin can be a challenge. Bear's Repeating has year around access (unless extremely heavy snow/ice) by way of Manis Hollow (neither too winding nor too steep).

From 'Bears Repeating' to Gatlinburg, take right onto Powdermill from Manis Hallow and you are in the Arts and Crafts Community on Glades Road in three minutes; another eight minutes and you will be in downtown Gatlinburg.

From Bears Repeating to Pigeon Forge, take a left onto Powdermill from Manis Hallow. Powdermill will turn into Booger Town Road, and in 4.5 miles you will run into Dolly Parton Lane. From there you will be in Pigeon Forge in five minutes or Dollywood and Splash Country in ten.

One thing you will not be doing in our luxury log cabin is roughing it.

We welcome you to share our cabin retreat with us. Our hope is that it will 'bear repeating', and you will share it with your friends or family.

Note concerning negotiating rates:

Since we've received several requests asking to accept significantly discounted rates, addressing the issue openly may save unnecessary time for those looking for steep discounts.

We offer discounted rates based upon a) seasonal rates and b) weekly length of stay.

We've made it a priority to avoid churning days rented in order to pay for our cabin. This is a primary reason for renting Bears Repeating by owner.

It is best for all our guests and Bears Repeating to conservatively rent our cabin at good consistent rates.

We want Bears Repeating to be your home-away-from-home so that you will want to return and tell others about us.

Note for those interested in vacationing in Panama City Beach, Florida.

Vicki and I recently purchased a 2BR/2BA condo in a great location directly on the beach. If you are interested, check out our VRBO listing #512639.

About Mike and Vicki Graham

Mike and Vicki live in Mount Juliet, Tennessee, about 15 miles outside Nashville.

For the past 13 years, Mike has pastored Hickory Grove Church, PCA while Vicki has worked in the Wilson County School system as a Speech Language Pathologist.

We have four children from ages 23 to 14.

Mike and Vicki Graham purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Mike and Vicki Graham chose Gatlinburg

We've always loved the mountains and vacationed in Gatlinburg with our family and on anniversaries.

Mike and the kids used to stop on the Gatlinburg parkway, take off their shoes, stick their feet in the cold mountain water, and see who could keep their feet in the longest.

We purchased a condo in the mountains in Gatlinburg in the early 90's. When Mike was called into ministry, he sold his real estate business and we sold our condo in closing this chapter in our lives.

In 2010, when real estate prices were severely depressed, we decided it was a good time to purchase a second home.

We never dreamed we would find a luxury log cabin like Bears Repeating centrally located to all the attractions.

We've been successfully renting our cabin through a rental management company since purchasing it in June of 2010.

Due to Mike's background in Real Estate, advances in Technology (VRBO/Facebook), locating an excellent cleaning service, and maintaining better over site over guests renting our cabin, we decided to Rent-by-Owner.

Awesome cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a beautiful cabin! It's in a very nice and private area. It has up to date televisions and furniture. It is clean and has lots of roaming room. We stayed with 13 people in our party and we were all comfortable. The beds are nice and big with tons of pillows. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The decor is up to date. The kitchen is a bit small when you try to fit 3 or 4 cooks in it but has everything you need to make a meal. We actually cooked for all of us several times. The hot tub has an amazing view. The porches all have nice sitting areas. When it looked like bad weather may have kept us from making it up the owner called us personally and kept us up to date with weather and what to expect if the roads were bad. Even when we did get snow and ice the road was never bad. We enjoyed ourselves hee and plan to make it our new vacation place in the mountains. So glad we found this little gem!

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great for a group of friends to meet to celebrate a birthday. Things were clean and inviting. The view was great from all floors. It snowed while we were there and the teenagers went out in the neighborhood exploring and love it. We did a lot of cooking in the cabin and were able to feed a large group comfortably. Had the weather been warmer, we would all have been able to fit around the picnic tables on the back deck, but we did fine with people using the kitchen table and chairs plus the stools from the pool room and sitting on the hearth. We loved the hot tub on the gazebo and also the huge TV in the basement. The kids played a lot of pool as well. I didn't know they even knew how to play, but found the teens in there racking up the balls often over the time we were there. This location was convenient to th grocery and both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The owners just replaced the mattresses on the sofa beds with temper-pedic ones which are more comfortable than regular ones. We were comfortable and enjoyed our stay.

Majestic View is an understatement!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my brother enjoyed 10 wonderful days in your beautiful cabin! The view is magnificent!! The weather was rainy, but even rainy the view was awesome!! I would suggest a small dresser in the main floor bedroom or possibly switching out the bedside tables for something with drawers in it. Since we were there for an extended stay, I had to get rather creative with accessing all of our clothing. Also, maybe an over the door hanger for additional storage for hanging clothes. We did have a couple of incidences on the stairs into the basement.....that last step blends right into the floor, so when we stepped off we were quite surprised when there was another step! Since our weather was wet, I did find it difficult to clean up after everyone tracking in water and dirt with just a broom, so maybe a swiffer sweeper would be a good addition. Overall, we enjoyed our time in the Smokies and we would definitely do it again! The TV's in every room with the Netflix streaming and the built in DVD players were fantastic!! And my husband LOVED the gas log fireplace!! No mess! Awesome for a weekend or extended stay and the whole area around is beautiful as well. We enjoyed visiting the Arts & Crafts Community as well as the attractions in Pigeon Forge. Very convenient to everything.....especially if you use the Boogertown Road! Just don't drive too fast! Thank you for allowing us the privilege of staying in your home!!

Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your cabin! We had a really good time. Everyone had enough room to sleep, my husband and I were lucky enough to be able to stay in the HUGE master bedroom upstairs! That jacuzzi tub was the best tub we have ever had! There was enough room for two people comfortably, and the kids.. LOVED IT!! Bath time was always in that tub. We had a couple issues with the cable, and the air conditioner going out, but Mike responded RIGHT AWAY! He was wonderful and got right on it! We did wish that there was a lot more room to be for groceries. We had to leave everything on the counters and under the island, some stuff we left packed and just dug through to find what we needed. So a large pantry would be really nice. But other then that the cabin was clean, cobwebs were everywhere, but you gotta expect that in the mountains! :) We named the spider on the main deck "Charlotte" it was the ugliest spider I've personally seen! HUGE!! There was a man that mowed while we were there. Other than that we had no other disturbances. Again thank you for letting us stay at your cabin.

Cabin was beautiful but very dusty. Microwave wasn't clean and stove top also.

All light fixtures were full of dead bugs. Top of drapes were dusty. Weeds covered the grounds and we're cut down on Friday of our stay. Could not use grill because of weeds.

Not for seniors, too many steps.

Owner's Response: Sadly, this is my first non-five-star review. Well, it is not about me, but our guests. We are committed to you having a clean place to stay. I did communicate with our guests about these concerns during their stay as well as communicating these concerns to Pat, our housekeeper. Pat prides herself in doing a good job. At the risk of making excuses and not hearing well constructive criticism, the cabin has been booked solid, back-to-back, since May. Pat informed me she did not have sufficient time between guests to for deeper cleaning which included the curtains. In fact, she has been after me to replace the curtains partially for this reason, and we are in process of doing so. However, that is no reason for the microwave/stove which I will pass on to her. Regarding weed-eating, Pat said the combination of rain and guests parked cars prevented timely weed cutting. Usually, Pat's husband cuts between guests, but rain did not allow. When he returned, he was afraid to cut and have rocks hit the guests car. I'm not sure why he didn't ask the guests to move their cars. Nonetheless, with the rain and cars, missing the cutting was problematic and I'm sorry about this. I had hoped they would get out there on Wednesday. We will try to do better in future.

Excellent Vacation!

From start to finish, I was impressed with this property. The owners could not have been nicer or easier to deal with. They were very informative, and prompt with email responses to questions prior to our stay. The cabin itself was very clean and comfortable. We had 3 families (10 of us in all) and it was plenty of room. The views are amazing, and though part of a rental community, the cabin still seemed private. I definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a cabin in Gatlinburg!

Owner's Response: It makes Vicki and I feel good to know that we could contribute to your having a great vacation. We've been completely booked all summer and now most of the fall, so I'm glad our housekeeper is holding up under the pressure. Thanks for the review so that other guests may feel comfortable about their stay.
