PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR GUEST REVIEWS!!!
Welcome to “Dancing Bear”. Come and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains from this beautifully appointed 3 bedroom 2 bathroom condo. Envision yourself gazing out from the family room and balcony, a cup of hot cocoa or ice cold lemonade in hand, as the sun shines through the pines or snowflakes drift lazily down from the sky.
Watch the mist come up over the mountains from one of TWO balconies. This top floor unit offers stunning views of downtown Gatlinburg, overlooking the ski slopes of Ober Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains including Mount LeConte, one of the tallest mountains in the eastern United States.
The condominium has all the comforts of home so you can just relax and enjoy. The condo is a corner unit that gives more light, windows and more views, and is kept extremely clean, smoke free and pet free. Our resort offers an indoor pool and jacuzzis, an outdoor pool, and on-site washers/dryers.
Our family purchased this condo for our own and our guests’ enjoyment. It was previously used just as an owners retreat. The unit has a large loft with two twin beds as an extra bonus. Kids love to hang out in the loft and play. Our children call it their own private tree house. The loft even has a sky light so the kids can watch the stars come out while lying in bed.
Renovations and upgrades are done continuously. For 2017, a brand new select queen-size sleeper sofa and matching love seat were added. In 2016, the guest bathroom was totally remodeled. A brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress/box spring was bought for the guest bedroom. In the kitchen, a new whisper quiet dishwasher was installed. For 2015, the master bathroom was completely remodeled. New glass was installed in the sliding doors leading to the balcony further enhancing our views from the family room. Also, HBO & Cinemax channels were added to our cable package. In 2014, a brand new Simmons Beautyrest pillow-top mattress/box spring was installed in the master bedroom. New flat screen LED LCD HDTVs were installed in all the bedrooms with upgraded cable. Dedicated private high speed wireless internet was added to enable enhanced internet usage. For 2013, we installed brand new carpeting throughout the unit, new fireplace tile, a large flat screen TV in the family room, and new beds in the loft.
Every room has a ceiling fan, and the 20 foot tall vaulted ceiling in the family room gives our condo a spacious alpine feel. Open both balcony doors, and let the mountain breeze fill your home with fresh air.
Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have queen-size beds. With the additional queen-size sleeper sofa bed, your home can sleep 8 people comfortably. Plenty of room for all to have a most peaceful vacation.
Dancing Bear is the largest unit in the complex at 1100 square feet, and is located on the top floor so you will not be disturbed by anyone above you. Because we are on the top floor, no matter what the time of year, we offer the most breathtaking views you have ever seen.
Conveniently located to Ober Gatlinburg, downtown Gatlinburg, and the main Park Entrance, there is so much to do - from hiking, shopping, mini golf, the Aquarium, and of course, Ripley's Believe It Not. Not to mention all the incredible restaurants, and Dollywood in Pigeon Forge just down the road from Gatlinburg. Whether you curl up by the wood burning fireplace (with free unlimited wood provided), take in the sites in town, or just simply enjoy the most amazing year round views of the mountains, you will want to come back to Dancing Bear time and time again.
Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you choose Dancing Bear for your vacation getaway. Please don’t forget to check out our Facebook page “Dancing Bear Getaway” and like us.

About Jeff & Maria
My wife and I have been renting out our retreat for many years. Our family loves going to the mountains and beach and spending time together. We are excited to be able to offer our home for your next vacation. We take great pride in our vacation home, love sharing it with others, and try very hard to give our guests the best possible experience they can have. My son and I love watching and going to football games. We enjoy attending our daughters musical performances. Our whole family enjoys hiking in the Smoky Mountains in the spring, and going to the beach in the summer.
Jeff & Maria purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Jeff & Maria chose Gatlinburg
After seeing pictures of the Smoky Mountains, I wanted to take my family there to take in all the splendor of the area, and it truly is a magical place to visit. The mountains are one of the most breathtaking I have ever seen, and they really are smoky! The greatest feature for staying in our resort is the unmatched views. Another benefit is that it is only 3 miles from the town of Gatlinburg, with all the kids attractions, shopping, and restaurants, and just 10 minutes to the main entrance of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Also, it is only 5 minutes to Ober Gatlinburg for great skiing, ice-skating, or water park fun. In addition, our complex is the only one on the mountain that offers both an indoor pool with jacuzzis, and an outdoor pool.
What makes this Condo unique
The biggest attraction for staying in our unit is the most spectacular views of the mountains. Our home is the perfect blend of both a condo and a cabin. The 20-foot tall vaulted ceiling gives it a real mountain feeling. The two balconies give everyone a chance to enjoy the outdoors and are really wonderful. Children love the kids loft and really enjoy having their own space to hang out in and play. However, the biggest reason for staying in our unit always comes back to the amazing views of the beautiful Smoky Mountains that must be seen to be believed! Absolutely amazing!

Amazing views! Perfect family getaway!!
Well, you could say we stumbled upon a gem of a rental! This will be our home away from home from now on! We more than enjoyed your stay. Our family of 6 was completely pleased with this condo! The condo was perfect for our families needs! Many details of this condo were thoroughly thought through and then put into place! The Condo was much larger than we had expected form the pictures.
There was a nice entrance hallway to welcome you with Hooks for the kids hoodies upon walking in, along with a Great spot to line up the family shoes! The queen Size beds were comfortable and it was nice to be able to have Tv's , Cable and dvd players in each room! The older 2 children loved the loft and it became a great hideaway and fun adventure for them daily! I really loved having a master bathroom, (looks like it was recently renovated :) ) a nice quiet spot to get ready in the morning! Speaking of Mornings! If you can DO NOT miss the morning sunrise! If you can get up (not a problem for us with 4 small children lol) do and get that coffee going, sit watch and be sure to bring your camera!! You will not regret it! They are the most spectacular sunrises you will ever see!! Each morning is different and this location only adds to the joy of seeing such majesty up close!
We were quite pleased with the Kitchen and it's equipment Almost everything you could need is there for you! Including coffee for that first morning after your arrival, when you haven't hit the grocery store yet! So thoughtful of them to think of those little things, including the sugar and sweeteners, and even coffee creamer! What a nice surprise, when I thought we would have to head in to town minus our morning dose of caffeine!
Having unlimited firewood at our disposal was sooo unbelievably great! We loved having a real fire and took advantage of it nightly! (8 nights to be exact) Renters tip: definitely bring old newspaper and kindling with you or Buy in town, you will need it. We also found bringing in enough firewood for the next day helped it catch easier as it had some time to dry inside.
Our children 7, 5.5, 4, 2.5 years of age really loved that we were able to go swimming every day! The pool and hot tubs are a great way to unwind from the day and have some family fun! The location is so close to everything, once you drive down the mountain you are in the Hub of Gatlinburg. Or turn right and you are in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park! So much to do that will satisfy everyone!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and detailed review. It was a real pleasure to host your family, and we can't wait until you come back again to stay with us. Guests like your family make our job as property owners so easy!!
This condo has a cozy feel plus an amazing view. It was super easy to get to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. This place was perfect for our family of 4. Thanks!
Thank you for the nice review and for staying with us. Please come back & visit us! :)
Beautiful view close to town
This location was Perfect! A few minutes from downtown or the entrance to the park. Very clean and the view was amazing!
Thanks Debbie! Have a wonderful summer.
Great Gatlinburg Retreat
Jeff's place is really convenient to get in and out of downtown Gatlinburg - 15 minute drive up and down the mountain. The views of the Smokies are outstanding! My kids enjoyed the indoor pool and my wife liked soaking in the hot tub. The condo had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 kids - the kids liked sleeping up in the loft area above the living room! I would definitely stay here again when considering a return visit to the area!
Thanks for the great feedback. The kids really do love the loft and swimming in the indoor pool when it's cold. Hope you're able to make it back soon - we loved hosting your family! Jeff & Maria
So amazing! Beyond what I expected !!
We were in love with Gatlinburg Tennessee and the view this condo offered!! It was breathtaking !!
Thanks so much for your kind feedback. So happy you enjoyed our home, and the wonderful city of Gatlinburg. See you next time. Jeff & Maria
Our family had a relaxing, blessed, exciting and wonderful vacation. This is our second year at the Dancing Bear and we will be back. Thank you for opening up your beautiful place to us.
Our pleasure Laura. Thanks so much for coming back to Dancing Bear. It means so much to my wife and I that your family chose to stay with us once again. Happy New Year.

Our mountain getaway is located just minutes away from downtown Gatlinburg as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Ober Gatlinburg is just 1 mile away, and offers 4 seasons of family fun, from a water park in the summer to skiing and snow tubing in the winter.
Some of our guests’ favorite activities are Ripleys Believe It Or Not Museum, miniature golf, and the Sky Ride up the mountain. Two restaurants not to be missed - Bennett's Pit Barbecue for some of the best Tennessee barbecue, and Flapjacks offering their world famous peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes (Kids go crazy for them.)
To work off all the great food, try hiking in the Great Smoky National Park. Our favorite hike is called Laurel Falls. It is one of the easiest in the park, and not very long. The reward at the end of the trail is a beautiful 60-foot falls!
Or just sit back in the family room, or on one of your TWO balconies, and look at the most incredible views you have ever seen!
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, snowboarding, wildlife viewing, miniature golf, hot air balllooning
