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 Now we are able to offer our personal home as an overnight rental, due to the purchase of a larger home with ammenities for our guest.

Charlene Bratcher purchased this cabin in 2009

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.

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 bed. 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. Whatever YOU want for a meal, even a meal from your favorite restaurant. 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)

BEAUTIFUL FROM THE PHOTOS,

  • 2 of 5
Beautiful from the photos, only thing beautiful is the view. The cabin needs some TLC. This cabin really only sleeps 4 the sleeper/sofa need to be replace. All of the pots and pans along with the dinnerware need to be replaced. If you have bad knee's are trouble climbing don't rent this cabin. Both bedrooms are upstairs and they are steep. Really the only thing BEAUTIFUL is the view.
I left a message for Charlene addressing the shortcoming in the cabin.
Oh! I left out the washer/dryer. The washer works the dryer is taped shut. You have go to their gameroom to dry
I hope this helps in your decision in renting 3 Bears.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that reading this review today. is the first I heard of any guest unsatisfaction. We promptly make sure our guest are pleased. The washer and dryer are both located in the game room as they are for our three cabins. This is clearly stated in the description of the cabin, and is due to space issues in the cabins. We have a gorgeous king suite with a jacuzzi and a beautiful queen suite with a jacuzzi in THREE BEARS. There are about 6 steps to reach the 2nd floor, these are standard steps, and of course you have to go up steps to get to the second floor. The sofa is handmade with extra support and true leather, especially for cabins. It was purchased locally, brand new and is in perfect shape. We would not put anything in a cabin that we would not have in our own home, as THREE BEARS was our home and furnished by us.
We constantly monitor dishes, pots and pans, and replace them if needed. When you walk in one of our cabins it should feel and look brand new, as if you are the first person using it. There should be no evidence of any previous guest. Please always let us know of any problems while you are our guest and give us a chance to fix anything you are unhappy with, there is nothing we can do after you leave to make sure your experience was great.

UNBELIVABLE FANTASTIC CABIN !!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thia cabin is outstanding, peaceful and very comfortable. Charlene is tops as a hostess with the mostest. I can't say enough about the kindness I received. I felt like part of their family. Thanks again for making my birthday very special. I will never forget the cake, your gifts and for taking me to 3 Jimmy's.

The cabin was very clean and the bed was wonderful. I enjoyed the hot tub and I was very surprised when u had a service man come out on Sunday.

Keep Bear Pen Gap Resort just like it is. I want to come back in the summer so that I may enjoy that beautiful pool.

Sure hope Sammy is being a good boy. Hines misses his buddy.

The location of the cabin is great easy to get to both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The view from the swing was beautiful. Close to grocery store.

I would recommend ths cabin and any of yours to friends. Most of all I have gain new friends and that is a blessing. Hope to be back soon. God Bless Deb

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It is a joy to make new friends for life. We are very proud of our cabin and what we have to offer guests. If for some reason something is not right we will make it right as soon as possible. Such as the breaker going out on the hot tub could not be prevented, but you are correct we paid a great deal more to have a repair man come out on Sunday, but as long as it was fixed as fast as possible for our guest is all that matters!!

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time at Three Bears! Our girls loved the hot tub, and we all enjoyed the fire pit for our smores. :) The location was perfect for us, right between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The owners were super accomodating with anything we may have needed. The dryer didn't work, but they offered to take care of any laundry we may need (we didn't). We have already recommended this cabin to friends and family!

NIGHTMARE AT THREE BEARS

  • 1 of 5
My wife and I along with my daughter, son-in-law, and 2 grandbabies (1 and 3 yr old) just got back from a stay at Three Bears cabin in Pigeon Forge for 4 nights and 5 days. I've been going to the Smokey Mountains for as long as I can remember over 35yrs and I have to say this is probably the worst place I've ever stayed in. The cabin was very nice at first, we were in love with it. Then we found sign on dryer saying out of order, we have 2 small children and one of the reasons we rented this cabin was that it had a washer and dryer and WiFi. Dryer was still broke and NO WiFi as they listed in the amenities (as my wife had seen a review from a previous renter about the dryer being broke, but was reassured by owner it would be fixed by the time we arrived) There was a foul smell inside the cabin and could not figure out what it was only to find there were wet towels inside the washer that had been there for days that was smelled up the cabin. Next my grandson was laying on the couch before bed, watching a movie and suddenly yells "mommy it's raining on me". My daughter is taking a shower upstairs and it starts to leak down on him. You can visibly see water damage on the floor where this has happened before. But as I'm writing this, my wife is on the phone complaining, they blame us for the leak in the shower.

We go out for the day a day later and a big storm comes on our way home, when we arrive at the cabin, there is no power (understandable, no complaints there) but the big window in the front of the cabin leaks like crazy and my 18 month old grand daughter slipped an fell right in it. Luckily she didn't get hurt too bad, but just fell and bumped her head on the floor. When we decided to go to bed, both beds were soaking wet, the roof had leaked on both beds so we slept in wet beds with it leaking on my wife's legs all night. and of course..NO Dryer so we slept with wet sheets and blankets.

My wife had continually had to call them every day for one reason or another, from no towels to the leaks.. it was a nightmare stay, only when I had had enough after my 1 yr old grandbaby slipped from the leaking front window is when I went off on Bruce (husband/ owner) did they have any good response and apologized and refund me $100.00 for my stay, after knocking off $100.00 when we first called. Got home and I check my bank account and found out that they tried to take $100.00 out of my bank account only after the 3rd day of our stay and gave her the remainder I

Owner's Response: The above were recent guest at THREE BEARS, before even arriving the guest called wanting to do their laundry. We had just had guest leave, who already booked another stay with their children. First of all it was booked for 2 and there were 6 people in the cabin. There was a washer and dryer in the gameroom. As owners we went over and offered to wash and dry clothes. Our offer was not accepted. The guest complained there was a loose board on the cabin, we went over and immediately fixed it. No complaints from hundreds of guest. As you can tell from our calendar we are always booked. The guest then complained it was raining on the leather couch from the upstairs shower. As owners, we immediately go over to see what the problem is. There was a pin hole in the shower, which had not been noticed before. As owners we siliconed the pin hole anyway,even though we could see no leak. As owners, we offered that since our cabin was not a good fit for them we would gladly refund their money. The guest decided to stay. The guest asked for a reduction in rental price, which we agreed to, as good faith owners. As to the complaint of pollen on the back deck, was out of our control,as the back deck is in a wooded area. After their departure, due to damage/trash to the cabin, I had to call in another cleaner to help get ready for our next guest. Any additional fees was due to paying extra cleaners.
