About The Owner

Bear Den South is owned by Paul and Liz Johnson from Cincinnati, OH. We love our Tennessee home and neighbors. We are both business owners in Cincinnati and love to get away. We love to spend time with our large family, ride our motorcycles, boating and travel.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Cherokee Lake

Once you see the great view of Cherokee Lake you will fall in love with the lake and house like we did. We chose this location due to the beautiful views and easy access to miles of uncrowded water. It is a great location for short trip to the Great Smokey Mountains, Gatlinburg, Dollywood, and Knoxville. A two hour trip to Ashville, N.C. and the Biltmore Estates all places we like to go either with the family or on the motorcycles. If you like to ride motorcycles there are several scenic routes from the house to the Great Smokey and Cherokee Mountains.

What makes this house unique

Our family loves to boat, jet ski, kayak and swim in the clear water. We love the ability to float in the relaxation station or play in the water. There is also year round fishing on Cherokee Lake. If you are a marathon walker or runner, we have hills to walk and all of the neighbor hoods are linked by streets. There is also access to the state wide bike scenic route.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a great time fishing,kayaking,and relaxing! The house is beautiful and the lake is amazing!

Great place for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

Five adults, five children (including 2 under 2 years old) all crowded into one place can be very stress inducing- but not at this lake house. The master bedroom was huge and the living room downstairs (complete with mini frig and oven; game systems; TV) was a great place for the older kiddos to get away from the adults. The upstairs dining/living room was comfortable with room for everyone to read, watch TV, or just talk. All the bedrooms were nicely appointed and comfortable with three of them having an awesome lake view. And the 3 bathrooms prevented us from having any "I need to go and someone's in there!" issues.

The location is great for those people who want to fish, swim (though it was too cold while we were there), or boat. In addition, we were within a reasonable driving distance of both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

You know it was a great location and vacation when, as we were taking everything outside, family members were already planning the trip for "next time". We definitely will be coming back.

What an amazing weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

I had one of the best weekends of my life at Bear Den South!!

And I would agree with some of the other reviews that the pictures don't do justice for the property. This house has such a warm, welcoming feeling that we all felt right at home immediately! The owners were very accommodating and kind. The house itself had everything you could possibly think of for cooking, reading, watching movies (DVD player) and scrapbooking!! My girlfriends and I had a 'Mother/Daughter Scrapbook Weekend' at the lake house and the only thing I would have changed was to reserve this home for an entire week rather than just two nights. This house is perfect for family reunions, family vacations, couples 'get aways', men/women's retreats, scrapbook/craft weekends because of the amount of bedrooms, bunk beds and couches that are available. The owner even has craft tables available, complete with individual lamps, trashcans and supplies needed for scrapbooking. I was very impressed with the forethought that Liz (co-owner with Paul) put into making this a special weekend for her guests that love to scrapbook!

But this property is also a 'find' for fishermen and anyone who likes to be on the water or enjoy the outdoors. While we were there, our group went on a morning walk through the neighborhood, which was so nice because not only the scenery is pretty, but we also got a nice workout with all of the rolling hills! Some of the ladies who didn't scrapbook, enjoyed sitting out on the deck, reading a book. I would highly recommend this home to families, friends, church groups, couples, scrapbookers, fishermen, etc..!! : )

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week get a away with our family! The house was clean, and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The home owners are very accommodating. The view was breath taking and the pictures on the website do not give this home justice. We were just a short drive from Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg for shopping and other attractions. From the adults to the kids, no one wanted to leave. We are already planning our next vacation at this house, if not this year, definately next year!
