Gatlinburg Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Secluded Cabin-Spectacular Views

No matter the season, Bear Pause provides a great retreat for you and your family. Breathtaking views highlight this secluded mountainside getaway 1.5 miles from charming Gatlinburg. Snuggle up by the stone fireplace on the soft leather sofa or comfy recliner and enjoy a DVD or your favorite TV show on the new flatscreen television.

The expansive windows in the upstairs loft/gameroom allow you a picturesque mountain view as you play pool on a professional quality billiards table. At night, lie in bed and watch the twinkling lights of Gatlinburg and Ski Mountain, or just take in the view from the outdoor Jacuzzi. Each bedroom has a flatscreen, satellite TV and a DVD player for watching your favorite movies...but you may prefer the stars overhead to the ones on the screen.

The cabin has full broadband Internet access.

Dear Jim,

Just wanted to say.....WOW! Your cabin provided the perfect "home" for our vacation! The cabin was beautiful and just great to come back to after a day of hiking, rafting, sightseeing. We really enjoyed the hot tub, view and pool table! The road to the cabin made me a little nervous but luckily we only had to pass by 3 cars during the week.

The location was great too - just what we were looking for. Easy enough to get to the park but close to dowtown Gatlinburg. We really enjoyed a restaurant that just opened earlier this year that is close by on 321 - Ogles Brick Oven Italian - just in case you are back to enjoy your cabin.

I hope we have the opportunity to rent your beautiful cabin again!

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 5 nights at this beautiful cabin. It was beyond perfect for a family of 5 needing down time. Very clean and convienient to Gatlinburgs main strip...walking distance! Easy trip Down the mountain..great exercise walking back UP :) The hot tub on deck, gas grill, pool table, Dish TV, surround sound, and of course 2 visits by a bear! Perfect touch...almost staged. He wondered on the deck looked around and wandered back up the mountain. We will definately be back !!!!! Mark, Linda and Family

Lovely mountain top cabin easily accessible from Gatinburg with 2 bedrooms, great deck, & hot tub

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed using this cabin as our home base for 6 days worth of hiking in The Smokys. Day 1 a large bear ambled up the driveway and paid us no attention. Never saw him again, but what a treat. The drive up the mountain is half the experience. Narrow, steep road adds to feel of being "Away from it all."

Although there are neighbors you hear from time to time, you really can't see their homes. The deck view is nice, but doesn't capture the full view of surrounding mountains, because of high trees. That's probably different in the winter.

The cabin is well appointed with everything needed and the pool table is an added bonus (bring your own chalk). Clean bathrooms, washer/dryer, comfortable beds, great spaces for gathering throughout added to the week's enjoyment.

We had so much fun, we totally missed our checkout day and the management company was very understanding and accommodating. We hope to return.

Absolutely beautiful cabin. Very clean and modern. Would stay again and again!

  • 4 of 5

Your cabin was fabulous! Located just far enough up the mountain to feel secluded, yet only five minutes to the Gatlinburg downtown "Strip". Excellent stay for dogs and people alike! Right in the heart of the cool Smoky Mountains with tons of hiking trails and rivers running through them for swimming. Cabin felt like home and the pool table in the loft was great fun. Air conditioned cabin made it very comfortable. Beds were comfortable, two suites, so no arguing if you are traveling with another couple. Only downside, need a more comfortable couch, maybe recliners in the couch, as the place is so nice, you never want to leave, but would like to put you feet up! Also, shades or blinds on the windows, as the afternoon sun comes in, waring up the place and can be blinding! A big thumbs up for this place.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. So much so, that we have already book another stay at Bear Pause. The cabin was comfortable, cozy and very convenient to town and all the activities we wanted to do. After a day in town or hiking through the National park, Bear Pause was a quite and relaxing way to end the day. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.

Secluded mountain side retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect retreat after a day of playing in the park, Gatlinburg or pigeon forge. It was very private-secluded but only a couple minutes drive from the main strip in Gatlinburg. We enjoyed the hot tub on the deck after a long hike and even got to see a black bear. We found the cabin equipped with everything we needed and the layout was perfect for our party of 4. Once you stay in a VRBO property like this there is simply no way to go back to the hotel scene. The check in-out procedure was a breeze and communication with the owner was great. I highly recommend this cabin if you are staying in the area with 2 couples or a small family. Go kick back, relax and enjoy the mountains.

Wonderful Time!

  • 5 of 5

We have a fabulous time and really enjoyed our stay at "Bear Pause". The road to/from the cabin was just as intimidating as other reviews had mentioned, but we found ourselves getting used to it by the end of the trip. Would definitely recommend arriving before dark. We loved seeing God's creation close-up! We saw a deer from the front porch, and we had two bear encounters (one on the front doorstep!) Would definitely recommend staying a Bear Pause for a memorable vacation experience!
