Why Linda chose Pigeon Forge

What makes this cabin unique

Large enough to have our whole family visit

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family members consisted of ages 4 months to 57 years old. We had a blast! Papa Bear Lodge was in a perfect location - easy to get to the main strip. Papa Bear was clean and spacious. It was nice to have a bathroom for each bedroom. We would definitely like to stay in Papa Bear when we visit the area next time - every year we get together somewhere and have visited the Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg area 3 times. Love the scenery and attractions offered. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us.

Big Cabin for Big Family Fun !

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 ranging from 10 year old niece to 77 year old Mom.

Papa Bear was the perfect fit. So great to find a cabin with 6 Full Baths. We had breakfast on the large back porch 3 mornings. Kids, teens and adults all enjoyed the Hot Tub.

Close enough to Parkway (2 miles) so driving was not an issue. Plus, we could get to Kroger for groceries without ever getting on the Parkway which is great considering traffic.

Kitchen is well stocked, Grill on back porch, lots of chairs inside and out, beds were comfortable (not 1 out of 15 complained ). Although I prefer a cabin that is a little more isolated from other cabins, if I go to PF with a large group again, I will check on Papa Bear first.

Great family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Last year I started dreaming of giving my kids and grandkids a gift of a family getaway instead of individual Christmas gifts. With retirement coming soon, I knew it was probably a one time shot for us to do this. With everyone's busy lifestyles so husband wasn't sure it was going to work out. But once I found the Papa Bear cabin, within an hour, I had confirmation from everyone that there was 1 week that everyone could be there and we booked it.

The cabin had so much room. We all had our own room with its own bathroom. The grandkids brought air mattresses and created 'cousin camp' in the game room. They had a blast. This cabin was the perfect location, a bit off the beaten path, but so close to everything you could want to do in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg. The linens were plentiful and the cabin clean and well stocked with basic needs as well as a few unexpected things. It seems every time I would think of a small appliance to pack, we would go to the description and it was included; crock pot, blender, etc.

I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a similar vacation.

Perfect for House Party of Seniors

  • 5 of 5

We--a party of 10 Senior Citizens were very pleased to spend 4 days at Papa Bear Lodge.

There were several in our group that had gone to kindergarten together ---some 70 years ago. We went sightseeing, shopping, and most of all enjoyed fellowship with our friends, relaxing, and just visiting in this spacious cabin. It is lovely and well equipped. Hope to visit here again. Thanks for everything.

We had a wonderful stay in Papa Bear! our three children, 3 grand children, brother and sis-in-law and ourselves all were extremely comfortable in this lovely home. There was plenty of room with the open concept living room /dining room/kitchen for all of us to have wonderful meals together if we chose to eat inside. The gas grill provided great evening cook-outs and with plenty of room on the back deck we gathered as a family and enjoyed each others company. This "cabin" was very clean and provided plenty of bed linens, towels, wash cloths, dish towels etc. The washer and dryer was a God-send having a group of 15. Every possible amenity was provided including dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels and bath tissue, enough to more than get us started. The views off the back porch were lovely. The hot tub was very large accommodating quite a group of us when we so chose to do so. The rockers on the front porch provided such a relaxing time. My husband and I enjoyed the master suite with the jetted tub when after a long day white water rafting or zip-lining with the kids. The location of this cabin couldn't have been more perfect. Close to all the attractions and restaurants yet, out of the hustle and bustle of traffic and noise. The decor was very tastefully done. Just enough to set the ambiance -not overwhelming in the least bit. The furniture and beds were all so comfortable, clean and accommodating. The recreation room and pool table provided a great place for the kids to hang out while we adults spent time together upstairs. I cannot say enough positive things about Papa Bear. We would think of booking no where else in the Smokey's should we get the opportunity to bring our family together again.

Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I try my best not to use the word PERFECT that much, but it is the only word I can think of to use when I tell people about our Thanksgiving Holiday at PaPa Bear Lodge. It was 17 of us from 3 states and the accomodations was not overcrowded whatsoever, it is spacious enough where we did not feel like we were on top of each other. The cabin was clean and well organized when we arrived which was a big concern of mine. There was a lot of places in the area for the women in the group to shop and eat, while the men had a pool tournament going on the pool table. The cabin exceeded my expectations by miles, the owner of the property was very nice and covered all the questions I had and some I hadn't thought of asking in her email to me. If you have booked or thinking about booking PaPa Bear Lodge you are making one of the best decision you will ever make. Again I don't like to use the perfect a lot, but it is the only word I can think to use when I tell people about my Thanksgiving Holiday. We will definitely stay longer next time and the time after that. Thank you PaPa Bear Lodge for a wonderful Holiday.
